* 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 while other Centre personnel make sure you can't refund, as Mr. Lyle finds out at the end.]]

* Referenced in ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'' when [[OriginalCharacter Inspector Kijiro Horaki]] jokes that Toji's dad is missing a suspicious number of fingers (actually the result of a workplace accident), but "Even if he really is ''yakuza'' he's clearly rather bad at it anyway". Hikari is not amused.

* In one of the ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' "Blood of Kerensky" novels, the oyabun of a yakuza organization loyal to the Coordinator (ruler) of the Draconis Combine on the planet Edo orders an underling to do this after he takes the 'initiative' to blow up a bar that the invading Clan Warriors frequent, kills far more civilians than invaders, and in the end, allows a Buddhist monk to take the blame and sacrifice himself in order to prevent further lives lost in retaliation.

* In ''TheDarkEye'', priests of the god of wars and slaughter, Kor, cut off their left pinky finger as part of their initiation into priesthood. This is the ninth and final deep ritual cut during this initiation, all because the number nine is this gods holy number.

* ''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.

She does, logically, ask her potential clients to prove her that they have left the "business".
