* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', the New Year's season is celebrated with Heavensturn. In Eorzea, Heavensturn is when one of [[FantasyPantheon the Twelve]] takes their turn at ruling the heavens for the next year. The Eastern inspired region of Othard celebrates the new year in the same style as the Eastern Zodiac. Ever Heavensturn, a representative of Othard comes to Eorzea to spread awareness and celebration of the zodiac animal of the year, including free mochi to encourage people to interact.

* ''VideoGame/AlnamNoKiba'': The twelve main characters are each from 12 tribes of people that can each transform into one of the zodiac animals. The tribes are even named directly after the Japanese names for the zodiac signs.
* ''VideoGame/EnsembleStars'' has a new years card set themed around the Eastern Zodiac, notably featuring an increased number of cards compared to usual (four 3* cards compared to the usual two) to cover each of the animals. And unlike most gacha sets, the story is divided into a number of smaller tales rather than featuring every card character together at once. [[https://enstars.info/scout/zodiac-part-one Here is part one]], and [[https://enstars.info/scout/zodiac-part-two here part two]].

* ''Manga/FruitsBasket'' has a family of characters each of whom transforms into an animal of the zodiac if hugged by a member of the opposite sex. The characters all have personalities supposed to be typical of that animal. There is also a character who transforms into a 13th animal, the cat, who plays the villain in a traditional eastern myth about the origin of the zodiac, and one member of the family embodies the God or Emperor who set the race in the first place. Unfortunately for the owner of the dragon spirit, a little wordplay means that instead of turning into an actual ''dragon'' (which would be ''[[CursedWithAwesome badass]]''), [[spoiler:he turns into a "baby dragon", or ''[[SeahorsesAreDragons seahorse]]'']]. The tiger owner isn't very intimidating, either. The "true tale" of what ''really'' happened in the Zodiac legend (and why the cat was excluded) isn't revealed until the end of the manga.
