** Another variation occurs in a late manga story revolving around the {{Tanabata}}, where Ranma and Akane will supposedly be destined to marry if two leaves with their names on them remain intact and bound together, but they will never be if either one is destroyed. Cue Ranma having to go through hell, including [[LordErrorProne Tatewaki Kuno]] suddenly coming out of nowhere with a steel-bladed katana, to ensure that the leaves aren't destroyed or tied to the leaves of other people.

* The concept is used for comedic effect in the ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' series ''TenchiInTokyo'', where Tenchi is connected by red strings to just about every major character. For the unlearned, that's [[HaremSeries around 7 strings total]]. There's a reason MarryThemAll used to be named after him.

* ''[[Franchise/FatalFrame Fatal Frame II]]'' uses a non-romantic variety for the Twin Shrine maidens and wardens. During the ritual, they have a thick, red cord as a sash that is tying the two twins together. It's meant to symbolize how they were originally one person, born as two during birth, and are about to 'become one' again. Flashbacks to Sae's ritual and herself show her being made to go through the ritual with her red cord torn, since Yae was not there.



* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword''. In an interesting bit of FoeYay during their second battle, Ghirahim appears again to tell Link that the reason they keep bumping into each other is because they are bound by a red thread of fate. He also gets behind Link, invading his personal space again, and whispers in his ear. He tells Link to come to him after licking his lips and says they're bound by that red thread of fate, that they're destined to fight. He also says that the thread of fate will be soaked crimson with Link's blood.

* In the first ending theme of the anime adaptation of ''{{Kekkaishi}}'' there is a line which roughly translates to "there is a red string which connects two people", in apparent reference to Yoshimori's feelings for Tokine.
