** ''VideoGame/Persona5'' features the Yakuza pretty heavily. Your third main target is powerful ''oyabun'' Junya Kaneshiro, a greedy sociopath who gleefully blackmails and exploits teenagers, and [[spoiler:CorruptPolitician Masayoshi Shido]] has extensive Yakuza connections, as revealed in his [[MentalWorld Palace]]. There's also ex-Yakuza Munehisa Iwai, who's both your Hanged Man Arcana Confidant and your team's primary supplier of weapons and armor; despite the gruffness and general shadiness, he's a good man at heart.

* The final arc of the second season of ''Manga/BlackLagoon'', "Fujiyama Gangsta Paradise," centers around a war between two rival yakuza groups triggered by the death of one of their bosses, a war that [[TheMafiya Russian mob]] boss [[TheBaroness Balalaika]] wants to use to gain a foothold in the Japanese underworld. The yakuza, as befitting of the show's tendency to play every mafia movie cliche in the book to the hilt, but [[CurbStompBattle unfortunately for them]], Balalaika is a {{Magnificent B|astard}}itch and [[CombatPragmatist doesn't play by their rules]]. And then, Rock and Revy meet up with [[YakuzaPrincess Yukio Washimine]], the girl who is about to become the leader of one of these groups... [[FromBadToWorse yeah,]] [[HeelRealization it doesn't]] [[DownerEnding end well.]]
