* City Museum, a sort of found-art-collective project inside a refitted shoe factory in St. Louis, has a thing that goes *doink* in its crawl-through aquatic-themed zone. It's not made of bamboo, though: it's a weathered sheet steel tubular monster of some sort so when it overfills and tips over it looks like a gargoyle purging after a bender. Makes a very satisfying (and *loud*) doink.

* An automated thing that goes *doink* can be found in the courtyard of The Enchanted Tiki Room at [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disneyland]] that tells when the next "show" will be.

* In ''[[MysticalNinja Goemon's Great Adventure]]'' for the N64, there was one area (Frog Mountain) that used a giant one of these as the fork in the road (one route behind it, one route above it doubling back) -- however, you wouldn't know it unless you bothered to go all the way to the end of the giant thing, which conveniently enough went off-screen.

* There are a couple of these in ''Series/MagnumPI'', appropriately enough since there are a lot of Japanese people in Hawaii. They are found as part of museum grounds or parks, as well as private homes. The scene where Magnum visits always begins with a closeup of the thing running water and going doink.

If the [[BuffySpeak doinker]] happens to be in a Western home, you can bet that they're a NewAgeRetroHippie who recently converted to Zen Buddhism and insists that it "balances the home's chi" or whatever.[[note]]Never mind that wild deer actually ARE a problem that needs to be dealt with in much of North America. Not to mention the not-always-sober hunters they attract.[[/note]]

* In ''Manga/BlendS'', a shishi-odoshi is frequently seen and heard at Maika's home, to let you know that she was brought up in a traditional Japanese home with some serious cash.

Also, don't confuse it with [[ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes anything going Boink]], the [[Film/MontyPythonsTheMeaningOfLife machine that goes 'ping!']], or ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight.

* The [=PS2=] music/rhythm game ''Unison'' has its lead female characters dancing to a traditional Japanese ''enka'' song called "YoSaKu". The establishing shot of the performance hall shows one of these underneath a statue of an Eastern dragon.
