* ''VideoGame/DantesInferno'': Cleopatra is encountered not as a tormented soul like in the Divine Comedy, but as a [[HornyDevils lust demon]] fought as the boss for the Circle of Lust. Unlike most popular depictions where she is depicted as a MsFanservice, she is both [[FanDisservice highly sexualized and incredibly disturbing]] at the same time, displaying a nude figure that is twisted and mutilated almost like a Cenobite from ''Franchise/{{Hellraiser}}''.

The identity of Cleopatra's mother is uncertain. Born the third child of Pharaoh Ptolemy XII Auletes, Auletes lost his grip on his kingdom due to corruption and the loss of of Cyprus and Cyrenaica. In a desperate bid to regain control, he fled and begged Rome for money and troops to help him regain his throne. Cleopatra's two older sisters, Cleopatra VI Tryphaena and Berenice IV, seized power at this time -- first Cleopatra VI, then Berenice upon her mysterious death. Whether or not Cleopatra VII accompanied her father to Rome or remained in Egypt is debatable; she isn't really a concern in the contemporary records of either place. The reason this is even a question is because some accounts describe her as meeting Marc Antony around this age, while others assert she met him as an adult. What is certain is that Auletes eventually was able to secure the troops and money, and that Berenice was imprisoned and executed for her disloyalty. Cleopatra was now fourteen, the eldest of her remaining siblings, and thus the one with the best chance of keeping a hold on the throne should their father die. He elevated her to joint ruler at this point, though it's unlikely she had much power.

* In ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'', she is summoned as an Assassin class Servant. In this version, she was a wise and just ruler who was able to turn Egypt into a military power, but she was recorded as merely a beauty who drowned in love and turned the kingdom into her personal playground. She wears modern clothing, saying people should keep up with the times, but deeply regrets the fall of Ancient Egypt. When she meets the Servant version of Julius Caesar, they still love each other, though she is confused that he's become so fat, and Caesar wants to use the Holy Grail to wish that they and their son Caesarion can live together as a family in peace. Her Noble Phantasm, Uraeus Astrape, summons a huge snake of fire.
