* On ''[[WesternAnimaton/GoldieAndBear Goldie & Bear]]'' in "A Fish Tale," Goldie proposes a game of this while she, Bear and Bear's father are out fishing together. She throws down scissors twice and suggests that Bear should probably choose rock, but Bear doesn't want to play because he's trying to be quiet and fish.

* The Sunday, July 5, 2015 strip of ''Wumo'' had a spokesperson for rock, paper and scissors announcing that the three are not enemies of each other and have come to sign a peace treaty.

* ''Series/TheSmokingGunPresentsWorldsDumbest'' once showed a [[UpToEleven full-scale Rock-Paper-Scissors tournament]]. One competitor even [[SeriousBusiness brought a laptop computer to help him predict what his opponent would choose]]. (He still lost.)

* Similar to the above, a [[TheWorldCup World Cup]] commercial for Pepsi has a referee run out of coins for the starting coin toss, and resort to this. It's the players' fault for snagging his Pepsi every time he got one out of the vending machine, although that sort of thing is all right if you're freaking DavidBeckham....

* ''Series/TheAdventuresOfPeteAndPete'': In a two-part episode, a particular schoolyard villain, Papercut, used this as his gimmick, forcing kids to play Rock-Paper-Scissors with him and lose or else (everyone knew he always choose "paper", but they were too afraid to use this against him). In the end, [[spoiler:the kids banded together and came up with things like "Meteor" and "Volcano" against Papercut.]]

* Appeared in the ''{{QI}}'' episode "Fingers and Fumbs," as a double-or-nothing wager if the panelists used the special forfeit "F-word" (no points for guessing which one). Stephen Fry spent a good five minutes explaining winning game strategies -- and then lost or tied every single game.

* In "Shall We Dance?" on ''Series/ImaginationMovers'', Nina has an extra ticket to the ballet, so the Movers and Warehouse Mouse play rock-paper-scissors to determine who gets it. Mouse throws down cheese and everyone tries to figure out whether or not that beats Smitty's rock, [[spoiler:they are then interrupted when the ballet's two big stars show up with a problem, and the game is eventually rendered moot when the entire group receives an invite to be guests of honor once they solve the problem.]]

* In one of the ''VideoGame/TheSims'' expansions, when a character dies, death comes and [[ChessWithDeath you can play a game against him to let the character stay alive]]. The game looks an awful lot like rock paper scissors.

* In the 400 Days [=DLC=] of ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'', Eddie challenges Wyatt to a game of this after they over run over...''something'' with their truck in order to decide who has to go out and inspect it and who gets to stay inside the vehicle. The odds are in Wyatt's favor, but he can still just refuse to play and force Eddie to check it out regardless.

* Used in one episode of ''[[Anime/JungleWaItsumoHaleNochiGuu Haré+Guu]]'' to settle a dispute between Haré, Guu, and Wigur. Guu wins, though it's not clear how anyone can tell: like WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls, her hands are stylized into [[InvisibleAnatomy indistinct blobs]].
