* Shows up, oddly enough, in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' with ammo types and tech powers. For fire you've got Incinerate and Incendiary Ammo, which works well against armor and causes organic enemies to panic, Overload and Disruptor Ammo for lightning, which damages shields and synthetic enemies, and for ice you have Cryo Blast and Cryo Ammo, which freezes enemies solid so you can take a breather or knock them into walls or off cliffs for an OHKO (unlike the other two, though, they do no additional damage to any defense type). Also with heavy weapons: the Firestorm is a flamethrower, the Avalanche freezes enemies, and the Arc Projector shoots lightning.

* In ''TheYearWithoutASantaClaus,'' [[AnIcePerson Snow Miser]] and [[PlayingWithFire Heat Miser]] control [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin pretty much what you'd expect]], and MotherNature conjures lightning a few times while talking to them. The same applis for ''A Miser Brothers Christmas''.

** This is present in the series' three main [[ElementalPowers elemental spell types]] in the Destruction school of magic. While the exact effects of each type vary depending on the game, they generally follow the following formula: [[PlayingWithFire Fire]] spells tend to deal the most direct damage, cost the least [[{{Mana}} Magicka]] to use, and often have the effect of continuing to burn the target for some time after the initial impact. [[AnIcePerson Frost]] spells tend to do the least direct damage, but typically have secondary effects of slowing the movement speed of targets after they've been hit as well as draining the target's Stamina. This makes Frost spells especially effective against enemy melee combatants. [[ShockAndAwe Shock]] spells typically deal damage somewhere in between Fire and Frost, cost the most Magicka, (if ranged) sometimes strike instantly (similar to a HitScan attack), and sometimes drain Magicka in addition to damaging health. This makes Shock spells especially effective against enemy spellcasters.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'''s plot is triggered by the discovery of a frozen esper known as Valigarmanda (Tritoch in the Western SNES version). It uses all three elements together in its Tri-Disaster attack when summoned, and teaches the third level versions of all three spells when equipped as magicite.

* ''Franchise/DarkSouls'' has this in the three schools of magic, the first of these is [[PlayingWithFire Pyromancy]] which [[DepartmentofRedundancyDepartment gives you control over fire]]. The second is [[ClaspYourHandsIfYouBelieve Miracles]] which gives the player [[ShockAndAwe lightning attacks]] designed to [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons defeat dragons]]. The third, [[MagicIsMental Sorcery]], isn't ''technically'' ice-based but many spells are repersented by the color white and blue, many sound like ice breaking when they impact the opponent, and finally many spells create crystals very similar to ice.

* In practically every ''[[SpyroTheDragon Spyro]]'' game that gives the eponymous dragon access to multiple different [[BreathWeapon breath types]], he will be able to use these three elements. However, there's often [[BubbleGun a]] [[MakingASplash fourth]] [[DishingOutDirt type]] which varies from game to game.
