* When the title character of ''HikaruNoGo'' takes the exam to become an insei, his mother is convinced that he will fail, seeing that the boy "can't sit seiza for five minutes". Had seiza been a criteria for Go ability, she would have been right.

*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Kallen Selios, arrogant mana mutation field agent, demonstrates HiddenDepths in this fashion during ''Literature/LoomingShadow''. She has to take part in a formal tea ceremony with the lightning goddess, Ligol, while in this position. Failure to do so is punished by lightning strike. She passes effortlessly, while her {{sidekick}}, Emily, is less naturally composed.

[[folder: Literature ]] * ''Angry White Pyjamas: An Oxford Poet Trains with the Tokyo Riot Police'' by Robert Twigger. Twigger, an English man living in Japan, took an aikido course. One lesson consisted of sitting in seiza for an hour without moving, which was particularly hard for Westerners who had not grown up with seiza. By the end, most of the class were hallucinating from pain. --> If you stop when 'it hurts' you may be doing the safe thing, but you are not commanding your body, it is commanding you. There may be a time when your life depends on who is in command. [[/folder]]

* In ''ParallelTroubleAdventureDual'', the [[{{PMC}} Earth Defense Force]]'s inexplicable Traditional Japanese Obaa-Sama at one point drags most of the main cast into some Flower Arrangement training on the reasoning that 'During times of war, it is doubly important to maintain a high level of culture'. The training includes sitting in Seiza, and while all the girls manage just fine, OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Kazuki almost instantly collapses as his feet fall asleep. Followed seconds later by MadScientist Ken Sanada. How [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Ken's daughter]], Mitsuki, wound up being so comfortable with Seiza is somewhat of a mystery. The other two girls, however, are easily explained, since one of them is from an old Japanese family, and the other is an [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Alien Bioroid]] EnergyBeing CloudcuckooLander, who most likely can't [[FeelNoPain feel pain]] anyway.

* A teacher in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' used seiza as a punishment while on a field trip. Some students took to it better than others. he also punished one of his fellow teachers along with the students, on the basis that it appeared that said teacher was helping them break curfew. Apparently, if a co-worker lacks tenure, you get to do that sort of thing. [[note]] Said teacher was also only [[ImprobableAge ten years old]]. [[/note]]

Kaoru, Aoi and Miyabi who all come from rich families find little problem with this while the rest of TheUnwantedHarem squirm -- and of course find another point to moe over Kaoru.

* One of the training minigames in ''Kengo: Master of Bushido'' has the player meditate in ''seiza'' with a man standing behind him with a board. Fail to keep a bobbling cursor in the middle and your character will squirm, earning him a smack. Mess up enough and you fail.
