** This being [[BadAss Kabuki]], she does it in a rather unique way: [[spoiler: she ''bites'' the tip of the finger off, chews ''and swallows'' the flesh, then spits out the cleaned bone. Then, since her bosses are staring at the piece of bone and completely distracted, she goes ahead and [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge kills them all]].]]

* An aversion in ''ComicBook/GreenArrow'' - the assassin Shado had all of her fingers intact, which Ollie's informant was a little surprised at hearing. He then warned Ollie it ''wasn't'' a good sign - Shado would have to be particularly {{Badass}} to never ''need'' to make that sort of apology to her betters.

* As [[WorldWarTwo the War against the European Imperialist Aggressors]] ground to its bloody close, many fathers of [[ImperialJapan Japanese soldiers, sailors, and airmen]] in the [[SuicideAttack Tokubetsu Kogeki]][[note]]Literally 'Special Attack'[[/note]] units cut off the top bits of their pinky fingers and sent them to the Emperor in protest against the war. [[KatanasOfTheRisingSun The Army and Navy]] intercepted said packages, of course, and the Emperor neither heard of nor saw them.

* 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.
