* Referenced in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueCrisisOnTwoEarths'' when Aurora tries to kill Green Lantern by summoning a giant pair of scissors. He comments, "I've played this game before." and summons a giant rock that plows through the scissors and then her.

* ''Series/WorldsDumbest'' 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.)

* ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' had an RPS-obsessed guy [[DoomedHometown early in the game]] who'd give you a badge if you beat him five times in a row. The badge is a nasty combination of GuideDangIt and LostForever because it's part of a set that you can use to trade for a strong piece of armor about halfway through the game.

* On ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'', "Prince for a Day" opens with Max and Emmy arguing over which of them has to clean the playroom, Max trying to wheedle out of his regularly scheduled duty because he helped their mother wash the dishes the night before. Enrique shows up and asks how they're going to settle it. They play rock, paper, scissors, but after they stalemate twice, Enrique laments that they're not going to solve anything that way. They go to Dragon Land and after they get back, they tie again, so Enrique decides that they should 'all'' clean up together.

* In "Play It Again, Mack" from ''Mack & Moxy'', a children's [[EdutainmentShow educational show]], this is actually advocated as problem-solving method for silly playground arguments that would otherwise de-evolve into an endless ArgumentOfContradictions. They even sing a song called "Rock, Paper, Scissors" about it.

* ''[[VideoGame/BackyardSports Backyard Hockey]]'' uses this to resolve disputes instead of actual fighting - the players are just kids, after all. Whoever loses the match gets sent to the penalty box. Amusingly, this can lead to a situation where a player gets knocked down by an opponent, loses the resulting rock-paper-scissors game, and [[MiscarriageOfJustice gets sent to the penalty box for knocking themself down]].

* 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.

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.
