** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'''s version of the [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Shrine_Maiden Cleric class]], Shrine Maiden, is referred to as "Miko" in the Japanese version, with Princess Sakura and [[spoiler: her potential daughter]] Mitama starting off as this. This carries over into one of the Shrine Maiden class' promoted classes, [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Priestess Priestess]]. Unlike the case mentioned above, the Shrine Maiden and Priestess outfits actually ''do'' resemble Miko clothing, due to both classes being exclusive to characters from the [[{{Wutai}} Japanese-esque nation of Hoshido]].

* ''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.
