* In ''[[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Tron 2.0]]'', where glowing water actually heals you, comes from the explanation in [[Film/{{Tron}} the movie]] that the glowing water is in fact "pure power":
--> "You forget how good the power feels....until you get to a pure source!"

* Summoning one of these is one God Power in ''VideoGame/AgeOfMythology''. It works for whichever side 'controls' it, i.e. which side has units closest to it.

** An interesting example is in FinalFantasyVIII when the party is stuck in Timber, unable to visit the nearby [[TraumaInn hotel]]. The player can hear about the so-called "Owl's Tears" owned by an old man. If the player visits him, he will invite you to just drink water straight from his tap. The tap water fully heals the party.

* Most maps on ''DelveDeeper'' have healing springs that will rejuvenate your dwarfs without them having to rush to the mine entrance (which will also restore their HP).

* ''RuneScape'' has the ogress-run spa resort of Oo'glog, which has several restorative pools available to players who have helped them, with effects such as regeneration and/or boosting of health, prayer, run energy and hunter skills, and marking the player as a follower of the god that the ogre race worships.
* ''AgeOfMythology'' lets you create one with Forseti' God Power. It can't be destroyed, but if the enemy gets more units than you around the spring, they'll capture it and it will start healing them instead, so defending a Healing Spring should always be a priority.

* ''TheSilmarillion'' features a lake that possesses healing powers (due to being blessed by Ulmo), most notably used to restore Túrin from his HeroicBSOD. It is later destroyed by Glaurung, the first dragon.

* ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}} II'' has wells. A character can drink about half the water contained in one to restore a decent chunk of health, mana, and stamina. There are also shrines with the same effect, but theirs is a one-time deal while the wells restores itself after some time.
** The first ''Diablo'' has blood fountains and purifying springs, which provide an endless supply of health or mana at a rate of '''one point per click'''. Keep in mind a high level character will have hundreds of points in either stat. It also has murky pools, which are single use and randomly change your attributes by moving a single point from one attribute to another, which is unlikely to either be beneficial or even help you all that much when it is, considering you will have tens of points into all of them by the time you start finding these.

* Every body of water is this in ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''. Since you drown when you run out of life, and there is only one life bar, "coming up for air" will fully restore your life. Possibly a {{good bad bug}}, since the DS remake gives you a separate bar when you're underwater. Except for that one body of water in Snowman's Land, which is simply so cold that it will kill you.

* Averted, oddly enough, in ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire''; there's a hot spring in one of the towns, but it doesn't do anything. (Of course, since you literally have to go through the Pokémon Center to get to it, it'd be pointless.) Played straight in [=FireRed=] and [=LeafGreen=] on One Island.
