* Unsurprisingly, this is a pretty major mechanic and plot point in''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons]]''. The Oracle of Seasons has been kidnapped, and the Temple of Seasons, which houses the four Season Spirits, has sunk deep underground, causing all kinds of chaos in the land of Holodrum. Using the Rod of Seasons, Link is able to change the current area's season, altering the natural obstacles around him.

* Starting with ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', the four seasons rotate each month, meaning they all last around 30 days apiece. The Pokemon Deerling and Sawsbuck were also shown to have different Forms in different Seasons, and some routes and cities even have different routes/paths/items depending on Season.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' themes its four protagonists after the seasons. Ruby, being Spring, is idealistic and surrounded by flurries of rose petals, Weiss is stern and wears a snowflake emblem, Yang is usually bright and compared to the sun giving her a summer look, Blake is often downcast and associated with fall like colors. Becomes an actual plot point in season three, along with another character being shown to have a heavy fall theme [[spoiler: Pyrrha]].

* Downplayed in ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}} 2'' and ''3''. In both games, each of the four seasons is present within one particular area, rather than all seasons appearing in a cyclic fashion through all areas. In the second game, [[SlippySlideyIceWorld Valley of Repose]] is set in winter, [[LostWoods Awakening Wood]] is set in spring, [[PalmtreePanic Perplexing Pool]] is set in summer, and [[BleakLevel Wistful Wild]] is set in autumn. The third game has it like this: Tropical Wilds (summer), Garden of Hope (spring), Distant Tundra (winter) and Twilight River (autumn). This also applies to the non-DLC Mission Mode levels in the first game, with an added desert environment.
