** Enough so that even ''Creator/GenUrobutchi'' was amazed. When you combine a Pili wuxia drama with anime style character design, voice acting, and writing, you get Series/ThunderboltFantasy.

* Unexpectedly, ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzerDerFilm''. All characters are practitioners of a fictional martial art. Everybody is doing impossible, reality-defying, jumps and leaps. The action scenes are deliberately depicted in fast camera. Martial artists band together due to honor and duty. Masked fighters attack as part of an ambush. Heirs to rival martial arts schools have an epic showdown. The fictional martial art is sensha-do, the Way of the Tank. Yes, it's seriously ''[[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Wuxia with tanks]]''.

The fictional martial art is [[spoiler: sensha-do, the Way of the Tank]], the movie is [[spoiler:''Anime/GirlsUndPanzerDerFilm'']], and the exact genre is [[spoiler:''[[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Wuxia with tanks]]'']].



* 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 arymy.

* 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.

* ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hero_Tales Hero Tales]]'', a manga by Huang Jin Zhou (a unit composed of HiromuArakawa, Genco and Studio Flag), is inspired by wuxia drama and novels.
* ''Animation/IronKid'' is heavily influenced by this and [[SteamPunk Steam Punk]].
