* ''WiiSportsResort'' has ''Cycling'', a bike sport. One of the features of this sport is that it has a stamina system. If a Mii's stamina runs out, he/she stops in his/her tracks with stars circling his/her head.
** ''Wii Sports Club'' has the ''Boxing'' sport from the original ''WiiSports''. One of the differences, though, is the inclusion of a stun system in which after a Mii's HP goes down to a certain point, he/she is stunned and sees stars, leaving him/her unable to punch, though he/she can still dodge.

* Circling birdies denote being stunned in the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'', which can happen to pretty much anyone who suffers enough abuse in a short period of time, or if they get smacked upside the head with a Pow Hammer.

* In the Wii ''PunchOut'', when an opponent is stunned, something related to their nationality/gimmick will circle their heads. For example, Piston Hondo has circling egg sushi.
** Unsurprisingly, as it's basically a knockoff of the ''Punchout'' series, Glu's Super KO Fighter 2 uses the trope in the same fashion when a fighter is knocked down. The fighter 15 Cent, a parody of 50 Cent, sees circling dollar signs, for example. Your character sees simple stars. The trope actually factors into gameplay, as the fewer circling items above the character's head, the more likely he is to be able to get back up.

Added DiffLines:

** The Links in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwordsAdventures'' also have the ability to perform a Hurricane Spin after they power up the Four Sword during the level and has the same result after it finishes. You can also your buddies with various items such as hitting them with a slingshot, running into a wall with the Pegasus boots while another player is nearby or using a ChargedAttack with the magic hammer with a player nearby. All cases harmlessly stun the player. Shadow Link can also stun players with the Magic Hammer and can also be stunned during the various encounters.

* VideoGame/AnimalCrossing City Folk uses this trope when you go to the city and enter Katrina's Fortune Shop. No matter what you ask her, Katrina will drop an anvill or wash pail on your characters head and your character will hear tweeting birds and see stars for a few seconds.

** In ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'', Knuckles gets circling... ''something'' orangey-yellow when he starts coming to after being briefly knocked out during a cutscene in Hidden Palace Zone. Due to graphical limitations and the size of the circling objects, they're hard to identify, although they are most likely birds or abstract shapes.
