* One episode of ''Series/ThePretender'' has the Centre doing business with the Yakuza. One of their men is missing a finger and it's explained that he messed up and was forced to cut off his finger as punishment. Miss Parker cynically asks "What do you have to do to lose a thumb?" [[spoiler: You could make a deal with the Yakuza and have Jarod screw it up, as Mr. Lyle finds out at the end.]]

* ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'' features this in the mission to Tokyo, specifically when the player has to pay a visit to Kaidain district's local Yakuza. In his first scene, [[TheDon Daimon Kiyota]] outs his lieutenant Yamato as a spy for the House-In-Exile and, after an extremely tense standoff, manages to intimidate Yamato into creeping back into line with the rest of the Yakuza. The quest "The Pachinko Model" follows and the player leaves; when you return, the hapless lieutenant is repledging his loyalty to Kiyota - and he's now missing two fingers from his left hand. More disturbingly, the [[MouthOfSauron Black Signal]] claims that Kiyota likes to collect severed digits, and has entire desk drawers stuffed with them.

* Referenced when PhoenixForce go to Japan and find themselves up against the Yakuza. A Japanese detective says that the sight of missing fingers is so common among gangsters that he suspects their bosses set them up to fail just to test their willingness to chop a finger off.

* The Osakan artist and prosthetics maker [[http://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/apr/18/woman-makes-fake-fingers-yakuza-japan-reformed-gangsters Yukako Fukushima]] is able to help ex-yakuza who have been subjected to this, by making fake pinkies for them. She does, logically, ask her potential clients to prove her that they have left the "business".

* In the film ''Film/JohnnyMnemonic'', the yakuza killer had his thumb replaced with reel of monofilament wire. It is implied by his immediate superior that he had cut off his thumb in the past due to dishonor and had since turned this disability into an asset (though that's not the case in the short story original.)

* Averted in ''Film/TheStreetfighter''. Miss Yang, the BigBad of the film, does not believe in second chances. If one of her Yakuza mooks [[YouHaveFailedMe fails her]], she won't bother with making them cut off their fingers -- she just executes them. As you can probably guess, this is a very good indicator of how much of a BadBoss she is, even by Yakuza standards.

* Referenced in ''{{Gokusen}}'' after the Family lawyer, a close friend of the [[MafiaPrincess Yakuza Princess]] heroine is shot by a member of an opposing group. Two of the Yakuza who are her friends/subordiantes comment that it wouldn't be enough for the rival group to make amends by sending her the shooter's pinkies and little toes; she'd demand his life.
