* ''{{Neptunia}}'' seems to run on this trope with all the characters being moe anthros of gaming consoles and the companies who made the game. The game is also [[MediumAwareness self aware]] of this trope and uses it to its advantage.

* On the topic of Persona, [[Persona2 P2's]] Jun Kurosu. Jesus Christ, just, Jun Kurosu. Even his first demon contact is called "Moe Face". Then there's the one involving Ginko putting Jun in drag and him looking so cute that the female demons adore him and the male demons are scared of him. Hell his official profile talent (amongst fortune telling and flower language) is CROSS DRESSING. Oh Atlus.

** Haru, the SpoiledSweet [[TheOjou Ojou]] with a [[MostWonderfulSound cute voice]] who loves plants, and has an obvious crush on Joker.Joker. The only downside to this is that she has an abusive fiance.
*** Sadayo Kawakami, Joker's homeroom teacher, dresses as a Meido for her moonlighting job and tries to act Moe, has limited results thanks to being a ChristmasCake. [[spoiler: Romancing her is a good way to bring it out, though.]]



** Ruca Milda from ''VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence'', another male example.
** Fon Master Ion from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' is yet another male example. It helps that he's a genuine NiceGuy.
** Joining the male Moe parade is ''TalesOfBeresia's'' Laphicet. The fact that he looks and dresses almost like a girl helps.

NiceGuy, and he [[DudeLooksLikeALady looks rather feminine]].
** Joining the male Moe parade is ''TalesOfBeresia's'' Laphicet. Laphicet of ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria''. The fact that he looks and dresses almost even [[ViewerGenderConfusion girlier than Ion]], dress like a girl clothes and all, helps.

* Persona5 introduces Makoto Niijima, Futaba Sakura, and Haru Okumura.
** Makoto may be the Student Council President, but she also has many {{Adorkable}} moments, such as tailing Joker, P5's hero, with her face buried in a random magazine. As soon as she's caught, though, she'll make some flimsy accuse and runs away. And this is before joining the party.
** Futaba is so [[NoSocialSkills socially]] [[ShrinkingViolet awkward]], it's endearing.
** Haru, the SpoiledSweet [[TheOjou Ojou]] who loves plants, and has an obvious crush on Joker.

* Recette, from ''VideoGame/RecettearAnItemShopsTale'', could only accomplish what she did because she was so lovable. It's even lampshaded in the dialogue. "That girl: something about her inspires people to care."

%%** Pamela Redpath fits pretty well, too. ZERO CONTEXT EXAMPLE



** Estelle Bright, a more rare example as she's the protagonist. Whether its the sweet smiles, the way she [[{{Adorkable}} geeks out]] over new technology or places she visits, her [[GenkiGirl fun-loving tomboy personality]], or the many, many times she feels insecure or doubts her abilities. The fact that she [[AudienceSurrogate frequently says things the player would]] in given situations only makes her easier to love.

The fact that she [[AudienceSurrogate frequently says things the player would]] in given situations only makes her easier to love. In ''SC'', she gets a lot of woobie points as she's [[spoiler:searching all over Liberl for Joshua]].



** Tita Russel, a preteen WrenchWench who loves to get her hands dirty with machines, treats everyone she meets with kindness, and loves her grandfather very much. Estelle and Joshua quickly become very protective of her, even [[KnightInSourArmor Agate]], who is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold at the best of times eventually warms up to her. We say eventually, because he [[CruelToBeKind slaps her to get her out of her guilt over not saving her grandfather]], and [[KickTheDog still belittled her abilities]] at first. Seeing him open up to her sweet nature is a definite HeartwarmingMoment.

** In-universe, Anelace is obssessed with all things {{Moe}}, [[CutenessProximity frequently losing her mind]] with her extended {{Squee}} moments, and sleeps with her favorite stuffed teddy Mister Bear, despite being an 18-year-old young woman and an accomplished swordswoman. Her catchphrase is an impassioned "Cuteness is justice!" and one scene has her declare "keep your friends close, and your plushies even closer".



*** And the kicker is Raiden, designed as the beautiful bishounen, is * not* moe. It's his personality, and specifically the examination of his selfishness and abusiveness at the end of ''[=MGS2=]'' - it's impossible to go "aww" after that. But the legendary mercenary and his "[[HoYay/VideoGames best friend]]"? Awww!

** The sixth game in the series is absolutely ''LOADED'' with moe. In order of appearance, [[{{Miko}} Reimu]], [[CuteWitch Marisa]], [[CastingAShadow Rumia]] (if you can get past her... [[ToServeMan non-moe]] traits), [[CoolBigSis Daiyousei]], [[TheDitz Cirno]], [[AnimeChineseGirl Meiling]], [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Koakuma]], [[BadassBookworm Patchouli]], [[{{Meido}} Sakuya]], [[VampiresAreRich Remilia]], and [[CheerfulChild Flandre]]. The fans particularly love Rumia, Patchy, and Flan.

*** Acerola, the Ghost-type trial captain, very much fits this trope. She is immensely loved for her absolutely adorable appearance, movements in-game (most notably her running animation and her Z-Strike pose), her quirky personality and her friendship with Lillie. She even has a uniquely adorable CatSmile.

* The girls of ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'' and ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' are either a combination of this, FanService, and/or TheWoobie. GenkiGirl Xiao Qiao in particular is ''so'' moe that OdaNobunaga, of all people, [[PetTheDog pats her on the head]] in the Sengoku ending of WarriorsOrochi. (It's AllThereInTheManual: Apparently she reminds him of his little sister Oichi, who was characterized similarly in the first Samurai Warriors game.)
