* In ''Extras,'' the fourth and final book in Scott Westerfeld's [[{{Uglies}} Uglies]] series, this seems to have become a rite of passage for 15-year-old girls in the futuristic Japanese setting. There's also a trend of mailing one's thousand cranes to a favorite male celebrity; protagonist Aya's famous brother has an apartment full of them.

* Folding a thousand origami cranes is one of the possible testing procedures for would-be JSA astronauts, which author Mary Roach observed while researching ''Packing For Mars''. By setting a narrow time limit for a complex and repetitive task, observing the candidates' work, and then examining their finished cranes for consistency over time, the Japanese Space Agency's psychologists can assess applicants' ability to handle the kinds of stress, boredom, and meticulous detail-work that is common on ISS space missions.

* In ''Webcomic/HannaIsNotABoysName'', a paper crane appears before [[FanNickname [...] ]] as a sort of spiritual guide. According to Hanna, the guide takes on the form of something with emotional significance for each individual, but since [...] [[LossOfIdentity doesn't remember anything about his life]] [[OurZombiesAreDifferent before he died]], whatever meaning it had for him is more or less gone. Hanna decides that's too depressing, so he starts folding 1,000 cranes to grant a wish, "so it can mean something again." (Touchingly enough, fans of the series have started folding their own cranes to help out. You can find their progress on their DeviantArt [[http://hinabn-1000-cranes.deviantart.com group page]].)
