Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/TheStoryteller: Giants'', one of the stories is an adaptation of Momotaro called "The Peach's Son". In this version of the story, Momotaro [[OurGiantsAreBigger grows to enormous size and strength]], which [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer makes him an outcast in his hometown]].

Added DiffLines:

* One chapter of ''Manga/GakuenBabysitters'' has the babysitting club putting on a version of Momotaro in order to perform for the babies' parents, specifically Kirin's mother, as she's ''also'' busy with the drama club and their own play.

* Not an adaptation, but it's referenced in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', where Ranma asks his equally BookDumb father what he knows about [[Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet Romeo]]. His father's response: ''He was born from a peach''. The English translation [[{{Woolseyism}} adapts]] this as [[Franchise/{{Superman}} he's from the planet Krypton]].

** Another early version of the story depicts Momotaro as being lazy. This was likely removed to make him a better role model.

[[LoveableSexManiac Shiho's]] submission is "Momobutttaro", a modified version of this fairy tale. We only get to see tiny snippets, but ClassRepresentative Aizawa (whom Shiho wanted to play the lead role) claims that it's straight-up pornographic, and Shiho is "convinced" to abandon it with the threat that she'll have to star in it alongside LovableSexManiac Shimada, who she's desperately been trying to avoid.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/DrStone'', Senku is amazed to discover that the stone-age villagers who were born after the mysterious petrification of Earth in 2017[[note]]2019 in the anime[[/note]] know the legend of Momotaro. He's even more stunned that their version of the story casts Momotaro as a musclebound [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Kenshiro]] lookalike with a bear, gorilla, lion, and crocodile as companions. [[spoiler:Later on we find out that this version was written by Senku's father Byakuya shortly after the petrification.]]


** The Wano also has several references to Momotarou. Kaidou resides on the island Onigashima which is obviously modeled after its namesake and he and his crew took control of Wano via force, representing the oni. The little girl O-Tama is able to make animal creatures into her allies with her kibi-dangos she can produce with her body. Momonosuke, the son of the deceased daimyou Kozuki Oden, also has a big role to play, notably as the lord of the Nine Red Scabbards who oppose Kaidou and Orochi.
