* Shown exactly as the picture above in "Anime/SoundOfTheSky" episode 8. In this universe even a regular phone is very rare, so even the cool soldier in charge of the platoon's hotline is impressed by this device!

* Chapter 61 of ''Manga/GekkanShoujoNozakiKun'' has Nozaki and Sakura communicating via paper-cup phones for ideas for Nozaki's manga. Sakura becomes so attached to hers that her friends comment on how neglected her actual phone has become. Suzuki and Mamiko keep their flip-phones in the end, however the experience affects Nozaki enough that he accidentally draws the two holding and talking into their phones as if they're paper-cups.

* Used in episode 4 of season 2 in {{Manga/Working}}!! by Popura to Jun as a way for him to talk to Mahiru without getting hit by her as the latter DoesNotLikeMen and usually hits any guy who gets too close to her. He immediately tells Souma to call Mahiru on his cellphone, but Souma refuses, stating that not using the cup phone would insult Popura. Jun attempts it, until Souma starts laughing at him, prompting him to angrily yank at the phone while crushing the cup. They end up using the cellphone afterwards.
