* Used in a season 4 episode of ''Series/{{Eureka}}'' in the same manner as the JSA astronaut example given in the Real Life section. Several Astraeis candidates are sealed in a small room together and tasked with each folding 1000 cranes in order to test their ability to do complex repetitive tasks. [[spoiler: They're also given an extra person posing as a stowaway that they need to prove they can deal with sharing limited space and resources with.]]

In modern times it has grown to be been used as a symbol for world peace, spawning from the story of Sadako Sasaki, a girl who died of leukemia from the Hiroshima bombing in WorldWarII. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thousand_origami_cranes More information from The Other Wiki]].

There is something similar called Senninbari. Senninbari was a strip of white cloth, approximately one meter in length, decorated with 1000 stitches in red thread from 1000 women, used as an amulet given to soldiers on their way to war as a part of the Shinto culture of Imperial Japan. The belts were believed to confer courage, good luck and immunity from injury (especially bullets) upon their wearers. See [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senninbari this]] entry in TheOtherWiki for more, though really the fact that today the KaijuDefenseForce uses kevlar ballistic armor like everybody else (not to mention the fact that it's a ''defense force'' and not an actual army anymore) should tell you just about everything you really need to know.

* 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.

* Another variation: In ''Manga/BarefootGen'', Gen and his brother Shinji decide to make "a thousand-stitches belt" and go to town to ask people to contribute stitches. The belt is meant to be a gift to their oldest brother, who's going off to fight in the war soon (this is also TruthInTelevision, see the "Real Life" folder below).

* 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.
