* ''VisualNovel/SpiritHunterNG'':
** When confronting her face-to-face, it's clear that the Urashima Woman's neck is far longer than it should be. This makes for a chilling scene when Akira is escaping her by boat and she can be seen in the water, her long neck ''slowly'' rising out of the water.
** If [[spoiler:Rosé]] dies in the Screaming Author case, then their neck is unnaturally elongated by razor wire to give them a grisly resemblance to a crane, the [[AnimalMotif motif]] of the chapter.

* A DreamSequence in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' portrays Yellow Diamond with a long, snaking neck much like a rokurokubi. This was most like a SelfParody of how her first (and, for about a year, only) appearance [[DependingOnTheArtist drew her with a bizarrely thin neck]].

* In Africa women of the South Ndebele tribe, and certain tribes in Burma, traditionally wear many rings around their necks. Little girls are given one ring on top of the other each year until their necks actually resemble that of a giraffe's. It's an UrbanLegend that if they were to commit adultery, the rings would be removed and their necks would immediately collapse, but this is not true, a woman can remove the rings without risking a neck injury[[note]]That said, it has been reported that they don't ''like'' to remove the rings, partly because the process of doing so is very long and tedious, partly because their necks feel less comfortable without them and partly because the rings cause unsightly bruises and discoloration[[/note]]. Also contrary to popular belief, the rings [[SubvertedTrope don't actually lengthen the women's necks]] so much as they displace their shoulders downwards.
