* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' has Reimu Hakurei and Sanae Kochiya, both of whom wear [[CostumeExaggeration somewhat non-traditional, heavily customized]] miko outfits[[note]]Reimu's was more traditional-looking in the PC98 era, and gradually acquired various frills and other modifications between the early PC games[[/note]]; while Reimu's outfit at least keeps the traditional red and white color scheme, Sanae wears ''blue'' and white. Not to be confused with the final boss of ''Ten Desires'', whose ''name'' is Miko (the kanji for that name translating to either "saint" or "divine child").

Fanon tends to pit them against each other, as they both need people to visit their shrines (Reimu needs offerings, Sanae needs faith).

** Paya fills a similar role to a Miko in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. She is the granddaughter of Impa, the religious and political leader of the Sheikah, and spends each day cleaning the hybrid temple/town hall building and tending to the prayer statues outside. She also sports FacialMarkings in the shape of the Sheikah tribe's ThirdEye emblem to honor her ancestry, and while she doesn't wear the traditional outfit, she does have the white-with-red-trimmings wardrobe all the Sheikah wear that faintly evokes it.

* In Japan, the six Maidens in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwordsAdventures'' are called Mikos (Zelda is considered the seventh, but she's a princess). They're responsible for keeping the power of the Four Sword Sanctuary under control. Once freed from their captors and reunited, they help Link locate Princess Zelda (who is still captive) and then confront the FinalBoss.

* Arashi Kishuu in ''Manga/{{X1999}}'', raised by the mikos of the famous ''Ise Jingun'' shrine [[spoiler: because her mother was one of them]]. Technically, Yuzuriha Nekoi is supposed to become a miko as well, but her grandmother preferred to send her away to school and to fulfill her destiny as a Dragon of Heaven.
* The Hiiragi siblings in ''Manga/LuckyStar'', given that their father is a Shinto priest.

* The Hiiragi siblings in ''Manga/LuckyStar'', given that their father is a Shinto priest. Unlike most other examples, the Hiiragi sisters are more based on modern mikos and have zero connection to spiritual stuff. It's easy to forget that they are actual mikos since they are all portrayed as normal girls in a slice of life comedy show.

* A miko with mystical powers named Eri was supposed to be added to the Maiden Shrine area of ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'', but the devs never got around to it. The in-game lore characters still talk about her though, and she's mentioned as living in the shrine, performing rituals of purification and divination and kagura dances.
