* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' 1st Edition supplement ''Oriental Adventures''. The raccoon dog is a subtype of hengeyokai (basically an Asian animal-based ShapeShifter). They are always evil. They have enhanced strength but lower than normal wisdom. They later reappeared in 3rd edition's remake of the same sourcebook, where they lost the "Always Evil" aspect. They made their final appearance to date for 4th edition in issue #404 of Dragon, where they lost the wisdom penalty (indeed, wisdom and charisma were the "floating" ability score boosts), and finally gained a climbing speed.
* In ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', tanuki are [[PettingZooPeople monstrous humanoids]] with the [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifter]] subtype, tend to be ChaoticNeutral, and [[BoozeBasedBuff get more powerful when]] [[DrunkenMaster they're drunk]]. Also, they have a [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar slam attack that they don't need to have their paws free to use]].

* Of ''{{Pokemon}}'', Sentret and Zigzagoon are two in Japan. Sentret resembles the folklore version while Zigzagoon resembles a real-life version. Sentret can spot an enemy from great distances and emits a loud cry as a warning. Though insignificant in battle, with below average statistical abilities and a small pool of moves to learn from, Zigzagoon can be useful as a party member. It is one of the few Pokémon that can have the "Pickup" ability, which will sometimes give you very rare items such as Rare Candy and PP Up, and its evolution, Linoone, can learn most HM moves, which are used to progress through otherwise [[InsurmountableWaistHeightFence insurmountable obstacles]].

* A clan of them feature in the StudioGhibli film ''Anime/PomPoko''. The American dub calls them [[RascallyRaccoon raccoons]] (likely to make it easier to translate the numerous songs about them) and [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar refers to their testicles as "pouches"]].

They can also cause certain... problems during localization outside of Japan due to them being characterized with ''enormous'' testicles. Another issue is their tendency to be erroneously localized as "raccoons" or "badgers," as they are close to unknown in America. These errors are less common in Europe, which has a large feral population of tanuki, and there aren't many problems localizing raccoons and badgers into Japanese media, as actual raccoons and badgers are present in Japan.

Japan. [[note]]although much of the knowledge (and subsequent introduction) of raccoons in Japan may have been from the cartoon Rascal Raccoon, which became unusually popular in Japan. The titular character was adopted as a pet, but was eventually forced to release him, which many Japanese may have found out the hard way.[[/note]]
