* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* Subverted in ''Manga/FutureDiary'', as the Miko we meet (Tsubaki Kasugano) is not only one of the Diary Holders, but a member [[spoiler:and prisoner/SexSlave]] of a ReligionOfEvil. [[spoiler:In an AlternateUniverse, though, Tsubaki ''is'' the real deal as well as an {{all loving hero}}ine.]]

* Mizuki Rashojin from the second ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'' is a rare [[SinisterMinister villainous]] Miko, who uses her ''gohei'' as a [[AbsurdlySharpBlade sharp]] weapon and has a demonic CanineCompanion to assist in the fight. [[spoiler:However if you manage to beat her with Kyoshiro, instead of killing her it turns out that Kyoshiro had in fact exorcised her from her host Bizuki, a genuinely kind {{miko}} who fell victim to DemonicPossession that took place when a purification ritual she performed didn't go as planned.]]

* Chizuru and Maki Kagura from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' are Shinto priestesses and the heiresses of a very traditional heroic clan that helps keep {{Orochi}} sealed. Sinee Maki is a PosthumousCharacter, the one we see doing the work is Chizuru; in fact, you can have Kyo drop by her temple in KOF:KYO.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'''s version of the 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 the Shrine Maiden class' promoted class, Priestess. Unlike the case mentioned above, Shrine Maiden and Priestess outfits actually resemble Miko clothing, due to both classes being exclusive to characters from the [[{{Wutai}} Japanese-esque nation of Hoshido]].

Apart of that, she attacks with seals and even has a {{Mon}} she summons in at least one of the games.
