* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' - Reimu Hakurei and Sanae Kochiya, both of whom wear 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").

Miko are more common in [[HGame H-Games]], because they don't have a ''permanent'' vow of chastity; they can just take over their temple when the head priest(ess) dies or quits, and then they can do whatever they want. Japanese depictions of most priestesses and other low-rung religious functionaries tend to borrow from miko, [[NunsAreMikos including nuns]].

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'''s version of the Cleric class, Shrine Maiden, is referred to as "Miko" in the Japanese version, with Sakura starting off as one. Unlike the case mentioned above, Priestess outfits actually resemble Miko clothing, due to the class being exclusive to characters from the [[{{Wutai}} Japanese-esque nation of Hoshido]].
