* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' is more of a comedic parody, but still retains the elements of [[WorldOfBadass everybody]] using supernatural and fantastic martial arts against a backdrop of ancient Chinese myths, legends, and curses. The main character himself, in spite of being fully ''Japanese'', even dresses regularly in Chinese clothing.

The overall aesthetic, underscore (and merchandise) of the anime is Chinese-influenced, and the main character himself, in spite of being fully ''Japanese'', even dresses regularly in Chinese clothing.

* InstantExpert: Wuxia rivals the shonen genre for the enormous gulf between how long learning a new style is supposed to take and how quickly the protagonist learns it. [[Literature/HeavenSwordAndDragonSabre Zhang Wuji]] learns the Heaven and Earth Great Shift in the span of ''hours'', despite the fact that it's meant to take years. It's usually due to some AppliedPhlebotinum.

* ''Literature/MoDaoZuShi'' is a very toned down xianxia.



* The Chinese drama''Series/NirvanaInFire'' is a straight example. A powerful leader of a martial arts alliance returns to his native land to claim justice for his wrongly executed father and the entire Chiyan army.

* ''WorldOfWarcraft: Mists of Pandaria'' copies the setting into Azeroth with all of its fantastic races. A race of stone creatures serves as a reference to oppressive emperors, savage bull men stand in for Mongol invaders, furry hat wearing pygmies stand in for the Nepalese Sherpa and the Pandaren themselves represent the simple scholars, farmers and monks. Then the invasion of Alliance and Horde into Pandaria and a discovery of [[{{Precursors}} Titan]] LostTechnology drives the setting OffTheRails.

* The many Pili Taiwanese drama series are in this setting. Unlike other wuxia examples, these series are actually ''puppet shows'', made with intricate glove puppets capable of a wide range of actions and supplemented by tokusatsu-esque sets and CGI effects. Created as a means to keep traditional Taiwanese puppetry alive in a modern era, Pili is a household name in Taiwan.
