* "Ser" is directly equivalent to "Sir" in ASongOfIceAndFire, being most frequently applied to knights. This is a male-only honorific, because female knights are nigh unheard of in Westeros, and there isn't any "Dame" equivalent; the only one is Brienne of Tarth, whose squire is quite confused about how to address her, "ser" or "m'lady".

* The PSP [[VideoGameRemake remake]] of ''FinalFantasyTactics'' also uses "ser" to address knights, but unlike most other examples, it is not a gender-neutral term and applied only to males.

** When the Knights Radiant begin to return, they're called "Brightness Radiant" a little awkwardly, simply because no one knows what else to call them.

* The Vahnatai in {{Avernum}} have a series of honorifics for various members of their communities; the three most common in-game are -Tel (for government officials), -Ihrno (for high-ranking mages and similarly powerful community members), and -Bok (a posthumous honorific; the Crystal Souls you meet all bear -Bok suffixes to their names).

Interestingly, the phrase "ser" is a very common stock fantastic honorific, often gender-neutral, enough to deserve its own folder.

folder. (In real life, "Ser" is actually an archaic Italian title, a contraction of ''signore'', meaning "sir"/"Mr."/"[my] lord.")

* "Ser" also appears as a title in ''Privateer 2: The Darkening'', first used to refer to the main character of Ser Lev Arris ([[RetroactiveRecognition played by]] Creator/CliveOwen before he became famous years later). The same game featured "Sera" as a feminized version of the title for women.

* ''Franchise/DragonAge'' uses ser in a similar fashion to ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' (a formal title for knights as well as a respectful form of address) - a major inspiration on the franchise - albeit in ''Dragon Age'' its gender neutral. It appears to be used by several different kingdoms. ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' introduces another gender-neutral honorificL "serah", which ''isn't'' also a title like ser, and appears to be localized to the Free Marches region of Thedas.

* ''Franchise/DragonAge'':
** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', "Ser" is a gender-neutral title for a Ferelden knight. At one point in the game a servant addresses The Warden as "ser", so it may also be a general term of respect.
** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', ''Serah'' is used for addressing someone of equal or lower status in the Free Marches. ''Messere'' is the proper way to address someone of higher status.
