* Nearly every character design in the Hyperdimension Neptunia series is based on this to the point where one of the promos for the third game has a caption that just says "TONS AND TONS OF MOE!"

* [[VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising Pit]], after his franchise's revival, has fallen into this category. The guy's innocent,dorky, loves Palutena no matter [[{{Troll}} what she does to him]], and despite all the crap he goes through, he still keeps his happy and quirky demeanor no matter what happens. The anime design given to Pit just seems to make him cuter.

* ''Data Design Interactive'' could be annotated for attempting multiple times to make a game made full of those characters (such as with their ''Myth Makers'' series of video games). The problem is is that all too often they used the aesthetic to hide the fact that their games were [[SoBadItsHorrible/VideoGamesOther of poor quality]], which lead towards the general consensus that Moe is {{Shovelware}}.

* Talim, Amy, and Xianghua from SoulCalibur. Tira could be viewed as moe if you like {{Yandere}}s. ** Pyrrha joins the list in Soul Calibur V, although many players have griped that she comes across as forced.

* The Plain Doll in ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'' fits this mold as well, which is no surprise being as she's an {{Expy}} of the Maiden in Black. She loves the [[PlayerCharacter Hunter]] unconditionally, frequently prays for hir safety, and in fact can only come to life if she is loved. And should the player show her a small kindness by giving her a hair ornament, the Doll becomes so overwhelmed with the unfamiliar emotion of joy, that she [[TearsFromAStone sheds a stone tear]] with healing properties, which the flavor text says is not supposed to be possible.

** In the main games, [[{{Meganekko}} Fennel]] and [[{{Adorkable}} Lyra]] (provided you aren't a member of the latter's {{hatedom}}) definitely have huggable qualities. And don't forget about poor, [[CuteClumsyGirl klutzy]] Bianca either (for bonus points, ''B2W2'' makes her a {{Meganekko}}!). Rosa, the female character from VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 can surely be considered this as well.

* Recette, from 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."

* In ''NoMoreHeroes'', there's ''[[ShowWithInAShow Pure White Lover Bizarre Jelly]]'', the offensively moe ClicheStorm anime that [[ThisLoserIsYou Travis]] watches in both games. It needs to be [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqaz1kDz14w seen]] to be believed, and it can make you feel creepy even if you're asexual ''and'' a girl. Travis explicitly comments on a poster from the show in his home: "''[[MemeticMutation Moe~]]''". ** In ''NoMoreHeroes2'', Shinobu has picked this term up from Travis... sort of. She says "moe!" on receiving items and will taunt enemies with "you've got no moe!" but also asks "what does moe mean, anyway?" while saving.

* Nakoruru and Rimururu of the ''SamuraiShodown'' series are very much siblings made of pure concentrated moe. Nakoruru moreso, as she somehow got herself recognition as one of Japan's most moe characters. ** Interesting fact is that when ''SamuraiShodown'' received an OVA, Nakoruru gets to be voiced by the actress who played Mei, as listed in the Live Action TV section above. So that means what's already moe, is dialed UpToEleven. * Polka from ''EternalSonata''. * Tsubaki, the storehouse keeper from ''IzunaLegendoftheUnemployedNinja''. * Eileen from ''VirtuaFighter''.

* 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.)

* Low Chaos Corvo Attano, from ''Dishonored''. At least the fandom thinks so. He just want to put Emily on the throne with the least blood shed, and he's utterly loyal to her and the conspiracy to crown her. And all his interactions with Emily are adorable. At the beginning of the game, Corvo can play hide and seek with Emily, and when she is first rescued, Corvo gives her his arm all the way back to the Hounds Pits. His unflinching loyalty to his dead Empress and Emily is utterly cute, even if he does eat rats. * RatonhnhakÚ:ton/Connor Kenway from ''Assassin's Creed III''. Murderer he may be but he's a big, awkward, sweet man who's na´ve and coltish; and very cute for that.

* ''Creator/NipponIchi'' has a number of these characters in their games. ** Cute angel Flonne from ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness''.

* Cute angel Flonne ** Usalia from ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness''.''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 5}}'' follows in Desco's footsteps in many respects, and is at least somewhat self-aware of that aspect, as one skit reveals.

*** Or simply put it, Creator/NipponIchi games love this trope to death.

* Princess Zelda from ''SpiritTracks''. Somehow manages to become cuter in the form of an ungodly metal golem of ghost armor four times her size. ** Zelda's ''moe'' returns in full force in ''SkywardSword''. The brighter art style and the fact that she looks younger than her ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' incarnation probably help.

*** Also from ''Awakening''; Nearly all of ''Awakening''[='=]s female cast gets this treatment, as they usually possess one or more "cute" or "endearing" traits of some kind. Examples include Olivia, a [[ShrinkingViolet shy]] dancer; Sumia, the CuteClumsyGirl Pegasus Knight; and Noire, the timid archer.archer. Lucina also gets a lot of love for being a socially clueless and very loyal and affectionate BadassAdorable.
