* 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.

* 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}} as to never ''need'' to make that sort of apology to her betters.

* Inverted rather oddly in ''Manga/TheVoynichHotel''. [[spoiler: Whe the ex-yakuza Kuzuki arrived to the island, he had his ten fingers intact. When some guys from the {{yakuza}} group he escaped from catch up with him, they cut off all his fingers ''save'' for his pinkies, since he's handcuffed and the cuffs would slip off him if they did it. Anyway, after his ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend Elena... uh, [[LudicrousGibs "rearranges the furniture" with these guys]], she reattaches Kuzuki's missing fingers to his hands.]]
