* A Yakuza man who seems to have undergone this serves as the race starter for the final race in ''Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Tokyo Drift''. The actor playing the Yakuza man actually still had his fingers. They were digitally (excuse the {{Pun}}) removed. This was one thing the Japanese ratings board disapproved of, so the fingers had to be digitally put back in for release there.

* In the {{seinen}} manga ''Manga/WolfGuyWolfenCrest'', Haguro Dou, the son of a yakuza boss, punishes a mook who seriously failed him by taking away his finger in a horribly bloody {{Fingore}} scene; rather than using something sharp, Haguro uses a metal ring he is wearing, ''grinding the poor mook's finger against the floor until it comes off.''

He then points out that it'll be quite impossible to surgically reattach the finger now.



* In ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'', instead of having to cut her finger off, Shion Sonozaki has to rip her own fingernails off, one for each of her sins, to earn repentance from her family, who are the Hinamizawa equivalent of the Yakuza. After that, her twin sister Mion was [[HeroicBSOD so shocked and depressed]] that she willingly ripped her own fingernails off.

* A variant of this is s performed in ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' by Houji as an apology to the other members of the Ten Swords for deceiving them Ina previous mission (which had actually been Shishio's strategy, but he told them it was Houji's idea). This is subverted as [[spoiler: It's actually a SecretTestOfCharacter by Shishio to gauge Houji's devotion to their cause.]] In the manga, the form is somewhat different as instead of cutting off a finger, Houji tears off all ten of his fingernails. It's played more straight in the anime, where one fingernail's removed and then Houji stabs the finger it came from.

* The next Marvel Netflix series ''Series/IronFist'' comes closer to this trope when the Hand orders Harold Meachum's finger, for leaving his hiding place twice and risking the reveal that [[spoiler:he was actually BackFromTheDead.]]

* In one ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel it's mentioned that Harry King, who is [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial definitely not a]] mob boss, has a missing pinky on one of his hands.
** Also, in ''Reaper Man'', Miss Renata Flitwick's father is identified by [[AC:Death]] as missing the tip of his left pinky finger. Understandable, given the former had been a smuggler in life.

* Referenced as kind of a joke in the ''LayerCake'' novel. VillainWithGoodPublicity Eddie Ryder is telling the protagonist about his business dealings with Japanese businessmen. The VillainProtagonist, knowing Eddie is a LondonGangster, and that the business deal involves drugs assumes (likely correctly) the "businessmen" are {{Yakuza}}, angering Eddie. While the protagonist apologizes for the assumption, he makes a sarcastic reference in his narration about (paraphrased) "perfectly legitimate businessmen covered in [[TattooedCrook tattoos]] and missing their pinkies".
