* In ''{{VideoGame/Mother 3}}'', Lucas must do this with all the members of DCMC to [[spoiler:get Duster to rejoin the party]]. It's literally impossible to lose, too, as the guys will have you re-do a move if their hand beats yours.

* In ''{{VideoGame/Mother ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'', Lucas must do this with all the members of DCMC to [[spoiler:get Duster to rejoin the party]]. It's In fitting with [ButThouMust the nature of how dialogue choices affect progress throughout the game]], it's literally impossible to lose, too, as the guys will have you re-do a move if their hand beats yours.



* In ''VideoGame/DokaponKingdom'', one of the {{Random Event}}s that can occur when you land on what would usually be a battle space is the appearance of Roche, a young boy wearing a bear costume who challenges you to 'Roshambo'. If you lose, he takes a quarter of your on-hand cash, whereas winning will get you all of the funds that he's taken from previous matches. If he has no money when you beat him, you'll get nothing, and if he beats you while you're in debt, he'll remove said debt from you.

* In one ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' book, ''Battle of the Labyrinth'', Percy plays a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Hundred-Handed One]], Briares, and wins using a finger gun, a trick his stepdad taught him ("gun beats everything"). Briares, having a hundred hands, picked all three traditional choices at once, so cheating was the only way Percy could beat him and get his help.

** One of the tests the Genkai has for choosing her apprentice is rock-paper-scissors -- in truth a game that looks like it, but [[SecretTestOfCharacter actually tests for spiritual awareness]]. Kuwabara, being [[PsychicPowers subconsciously psychic]], gets the highest scores, and has a reputation for being a "Rock-Paper-Scissors Master" as a result; throughout the whole series, he never loses a game.

* In one episode of ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'', the main characters decide to have a snowball fight following the "official rules", which involves splitting into two teams. Tamama suggests that they add an element of Capture the Flag by having one teammate tied up and rescued by the others on their team, and that they pick who it is by using rock-paper-scissors. This is actually a ploy to get Natsumi out of the running, since she has the most physical prowess, but always loses at RPS.

* ''Manga/{{Nichijou}}'': OncePerEpisode, a short clip shows [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot Nano]] and [[ChildProdigy the Professor]] playing this. It usually ends with some catch that prevents Nano from winning. Either her hand will fly off, carrying her with it, it will be replaced by a shark, flowers... Nano actually wins several times (the Professor treats the shark like a victory, and she wins in Episode 7), but ''something'' bad will subsequently happen to her (in Episode 7, the Professor launched her hand across the room to retrieve the remote).

* In ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'', the characters visit a MaidCafe that forms a music group with Rock-Paper-Scissors used to determine the "center" (a blatant ShoutOut to Music/AKB48, which does things the same way). But since the finalists are the hyper-competitive and violent Nyarko and Cuuko, they deliver a Paper CrossCounter before it just turns into an all-out brawl. With [[Series/KamenRider Rider Kicks]].

* The Japan-exclusive PlayStation game ''Finger Flashing'' combines this with a Shmup-type setup: rock, paper or scissor-themed enemies come from the top of the screen, and can only be killed by shooting them with the corresponding gesture. Shooting them with the wrong one causes them to duplicate.

* A 2016 commercial for Android references this. We see a sheet of paper at school getting bullied by two more sheets of paper. They stop when a pair of scissors intervenes. The sheet of paper and the scissors walk home together afterwards to find a pair of rocks bullying another rock. The pair of scissors is afraid to get involved, so the paper goes in. After that, we see the sheet of paper, scissors, and rock walking away together the best of friends.
