* ''RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy'' has Satake and the Kantou haguro-gumi, but they're good guys. A bit quick to agitate, but good.

* The Ashura-kai from ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' are essentially the game's own take on the Yakuza. They provide goods and shelter for civilians, but in exchange they are rarely ever not armed. They also run [[spoiler:a human trafficking operation based in a secret facility, drawing their neurotransmitters out by force to use as demon food, and raising children in said facility in order to keep up with demand.]]

* In ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'', common Yakuza thugs occasionally show up as random encounter enemies, like in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI'' and the original ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}''.

** ''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.

* Creator/WilliamGibson's Literature/SprawlTrilogy contains many references to the Yakuza, which has become a major international force. In "Johnny Mnemonic," the Yakuza send a vat-grown cyborg assassin to kill the main character.

* The Ronin in ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2'' are a Japanese street gang (albeit ones who [[WhiteGangbangers recruit locally]]) who, despite acting more like street thugs with [[GangOfHats a samurai theme]] and a taste for fast motorbikes, are backed by an actual Yakuza clan from Japan. [[BadassNormal Johnny Gat]] even goes so far as to refer to the head of the organization as "the Oyabun".
