* HeirToTheDojo: Given the nature of martial art schools in this genre, there tend to be certain characters who are chosen by his/her master as a successor. Xianxia has another particularly popular variant - characters going into ruins of ancient long-gone sects, discovering and passing some sort of a test in order to gain their "inheritance", ranging from techniques to artefacts to bound servants (bound immortal demons and the like).

* Two different manga by Creator/OhGreat effectively become this over time: ''Manga/TenjhoTenge'' is a straight example, with each of the characters having long histories, internal and external conflicts between bloodlines, clans, sensei's, and fighting styles. The other is ''Manga/AirGear'', which does pretty much the exact same formula, except instead of magical kung-fu they use magical motorized inline skates.
* ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' has an ongoing manga that is heavily influenced by wuxia manhua, which is perhaps expected giving it's artist and writer has a great deal of experience drawing and writing for that particular comic genre.

* The first season of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'' can be read as a loose adaptation of Jing-Yong's ''Literature/TheHeavenSwordAndDragonSaber'' novel, especially concerning Kira as a rewrite of the kind-pacifist turned Warrior-God Jang Wu-Ji.
** It seems more likely to be a loose adaption of the original Mobile Suit Gundam series though, with elements from more recent ones thrown in.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Wandering Heroes of Ogre Gate}}'' is yet another example of a game built with all of the conventions of the genre in mind, and it supports more grounded (though still wire-fu) martial arts action as well as very high-power games like ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' and ''Weapons of the Gods/{{Legends of the Wulin}}'' above, or a [[SerialEscalation gradual escalation of power]] a la ''Film/{{Kung Fu Hustle}}''.
