* ''VideoGame/{{Hearthstone}}'' uses them to indicate that your minions are "asleep" (Hearthstone's equivalent of Magic the Gathering's summoning sickness, meaning you cannot use the creature that has just entered play until your next turn.)

* The "Test Your Luck" mode of ''VideoGame/MortalKombat2011'' has a random condition called "Narcoleptic", which will cause the character it's applied to to randomly fall asleep during the fight, Zs and everything. Funnily enough, they keep their fighting stances while asleep.

** The ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' series also makes use of this. Sleeping Pokémon in ''Gates of Infinity'' have Zs coming out of them, be it because of enemy status attacks or just far too lengthy exposition. The series also has traps that put Pokémon to sleep represented with Zs on it. And in ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'', this also happens in the overworld for sleeping Pokemon sometimes, be it when sleeping through stories, (in Pancham and Shelmet's case during the story about a Graveler counting Mareep) sleeping before lectures, (in your partner's case, thus leaving you to hear Carracosta's entire lecture) and a few others.

**Played straight with [[spoiler: Sans]] on the Genocide Route, who exhausts themselves trying to take you out once and for all and eventually falls asleep while trying to stall forever in hopes that you'll just give up. [[spoiler: Interestingly, the font used for the "Zs" in question isn't Comic Sans (Sans' usual font) or 8-bit Operator (The font Sans uses when [[LetsGetDangerous he gets serious]]), but rather Aster, suggesting a possible connection with [[DummiedOut Dr. W.D. Gaster]] ]]

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' when you find your way blocked by what appears to be a sleeping ghost. They're actually wide awake and just saying 'z' out loud repeatedly.
