Moe: Videogames
  • Recette, from Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale, 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."
    • Tielle, the young elf, is just as moe. Whereas other adventurers have a special business card, Tielle's is a picture of her and Recette together. The item description is 'Adorable beyond words.'
  • Cream the Rabbit from the Sonic the Hedgehog series.
  • Chihiro and Fuuka from Persona 3 qualify. Both are relatively plain compared to other female characters, tend towards shyness, and Chihiro herself is a first year and afraid of men.
  • Ayane from Persona 4 is even more so, as, in addition to being shy and unthreatening, she's mistaken for the main character's younger sister at the festival, has a perpetual blush, and just tries...so hard...to get better at the trombone, even though it's big for her, to catch up with the rest of the band.
    • And then there's Nanako. Just try not to fall in love with her.
    • Not to mention Rise. Yosuke takes special notice.
    • P4 also contains a fairly hilarious subversion using a character from P3, to boot: Chihiro, of all people, shows up during the school trip to Iwatodai, as the class president of Gekkoukan High. She isn't "moe" anymore (her fear of men, ah, having been conquered). Instead? She's now only about a half-step under Tina Fey in terms of straight-out hotness.
    • On the topic of Persona, 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.
  • From BlazBlue, we have Noel Vermillion, an adorably ditzy Lieutenant for the world government who, whenever you see her, you'll just want to give her a big ol' hug! Provided you're not a member of her Hatedom.
    • Tsubaki might be inching in this direction if she keeps getting mind raped the way she is, too. Though to a lesser extent than Noel.
    • Makoto has shades of this as well.
  • Fire Emblem loves this, especially if they initially appear as enemies, as their faces scream "recruit me" because tons of them are just innocent girls dragged into battles by villains.
  • Fiolina "Fio" Germi from Metal Slug is a textbook example, safe for the whole "mass murder" thing. Doubles as Action Girl and Meganekko.
    • The game's eponymous battle tank is also very moe.
  • One of The King of Fighters characters is Moe Habana.
  • Ibis Douglas from Super Robot Wars Alpha 2. She's not as moeblob obvious like Kusuha, but she actually became the champion of moe characters in the SaiMoe RPG 2006 contest. Maybe it had something to do with her Pettanko status; or her Captain Crash tendencies; or her love for cheesecake...
  • In No More Heroes, Travis comments on a poster in his home - "Moe~".
    • And in No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, Shinobu says "moe!" on receiving items and will taunt enemies with "you've got no moe!" She also asks "what does moe mean, anyway?" while saving.
    • There's also Pure White Lover Bizarre Jelly, the offensively moe Cliché Storm anime that Travis watches in both games. It needs to be seen to be believed, and it can make you feel creepy even if you're asexual and a girl.
  • Didn't think Metal Gear could be moe? Think again.
    • And then there's Sunny in the actual series...
      • Horribly enough, the reason the moe-figures work is because the male characters have surprisingly moe personalities. Snake alone is a aloof/warm-type Tsundere Ill Girl who makes nonsense vocalisations, is devoted to his best friend, and gets a lot of Panty Shots. Otacon is so moe it hurts.
      • 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 "best friend"? Awww!
    • Emma from Metal Gear Solid 2 also qualifies.
    • Mei Ling is also quite cute, and her Tsundere moments (like her Easter Egg appearance over the codec in MGS 2) make her even more so.
    • Paz from Peace Walker. Large anime eyes, schoolgirl outfit, cute gestures and features, optimistic personality. Which serves to hide the fact she's actually an asshole double agent.
  • In the Touhou fandom, many jokes have been made about Yuyuko Saigyouji's power of absolute mastery of death and moe. Or killing you off by her overwhelming moe-ness.
    • The recent fighting game where Suwako makes her appearance has taken the fanbase by storm with her moe, especially her animations.
      • For example. Yes, she is flapping her arms as she tries to fly. Adorable, isn't it?
    • A-hem. Yuuka Kazami is the original youkai moe~. You wouldn't be forgetting about her, would you?
      • The meme of Yuka being called "youkai moe" is actually from Word of God, but it also should be mentioned that Yuka is a flower youkai, and the literal meaning of moe is budding or sprouting (ie as a flower). Therefore, Yuka is less of an example and more of a victim of an Incredibly Lame Pun most English speakers won't get.
      • Make way for Kogasa, the new Youkai Moe~. How can you say no to a face like this? It's even stated in canon.
    • Chen (also known as CHEEEEEEEN!!) is also a notable example, existing mostly to be as adorable as possible.
    • The sixth game in the series is absolutely LOADED with moe. In order of appearance, Reimu, Marisa, Rumia (if you can get past her... non-moe traits), Daiyousei, Cirno, Meiling, Koakuma, Patchouli, Sakuya, Remilia, and Flandre. The fans particularly love Rumia, Patchy, and Flan.
  • Nakoruru and Rimururu of the Samurai Shodown 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 Samurai Shodown 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 Up to Eleven.
  • Polka from Eternal Sonata.
  • Tsubaki, the storehouse keeper from Izuna Legendofthe Unemployed Ninja.
  • Eileen from Virtua Fighter.
  • Aerie from Baldur's Gate II. Like her or not, she has all the markings of one.
    • Imoen is also VERY moe in the second game, when she reaches serious woobie status.
  • No matter how much Zelos disputed in the Gummi-Skits, Colette Brunel from Tales of Symphonia is moe.
  • The Atelier Series has Pamela, a very cute Ghost Girl. No male or Mon could resist her charms.
    • Ah, but Pamela has no flaws. (Other than being, you know, dead. And surprisingly horrible in some appearances.) Vayne on the other hand, is extremely moe.
  • The girls of Samurai Warriors and Dynasty Warriors are either a combination of this, Fanservice, and/or The Woobie. Genki Girl Xiao Qiao in particular is so moe that Oda Nobunaga, of all people, pats her on the head in the Sengoku ending of Warriors Orochi. (It's All There in the Manual: Apparently she reminds him of his little sister Oichi, who was characterized similarly in the first Samurai Warriors game.)
    • Dynasty Warriors 7, believe it or not, has Xiahou Ba. Cute big puppy eyes, innocent, baby face, and his quotes in battle radiate a sense of naivete.
  • Carefree, cute, innocent Elena from Threads of Fate.
  • Cute angel Flonne from Disgaea: Hour of Darkness.
  • Starky the little alien in Chrono Cross.
  • Space Invaders Extreme 2 Stage 5-D has, in the background, a cute girl dressed in an alien-like costume.
  • Liara T'Soni of Mass Effect. Tali'Zorah nar Raaya is equally cute, but much snarkier and less of an innocent.
    • Though if you romance Tali as a male Shepard in Mass Effect 2, she gets so adorably flustered you can practically FEEL a Luminescent Blush coming through her faceplate.
    • In Mass Effect 2, a conversation between a Quarian girl and a Turian implies that Quarians in general instill this sort of reaction in humans ("It's always the same with humans: 'She gets sick easily! She's so vulnerable! I wonder what she looks like under that helmet...'") This could be considered a Lampshade Hanging of the general fan adoration of Tali.
    • Legion. Yes, Legion, at least once he's opened up post his loyalty mission.
  • Princess Zelda from Spirit Tracks. Somehow manages to become cuter in the form of an ungodly metal golem of ghost armor four times her size.
  • Moemon is a Game Mod of Pokémon which replaces all of the Pokemon sprites with moe gijinka.
    • There are varying versions of the moe sprites for different hacks. Some are meant to be female-specific, while others could easily be mistaken for men if not for the gender symbol. A couple are male-specific, sorta, but not many.
    • In the main games, Fennel and Lyra (provided you aren't a member of the latter's hatedom) definitely have huggable qualities. And don't forget about poor, klutzy Bianca either (for bonus points, B 2 W 2 makes her a Meganekko!). Rosa, the female character from Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 can surely be considered this as well.
    • Serena, the female PC from Pokémon X and Y. While some people hate her and her male counterpart as rival characters, she becomes very huggable when you watch how saddening it can be when you beat her, considering how she wants to do good.
    • How dare you bring up Pokemon X and Y, and not give any mention to Shauna!
  • Alma Wade, at least in child form. Proof that, properly utilized, Moe can be scary as hell.
  • Ruca Milda from Tales of Innocence, another male example.
  • Ōkami: Origin of all that is good, and mother to us all, Amaterasu. AKA Ammy. AKA Fluffball. AKA Snowy, Fido, pooch, and Snowball. And Powderpuff. We all know she's a full blown deity reincarnated as a wolf, but dammit if she ain't the cutest thing in the world when she's wagging her tail.
    • Ōkamiden sees your puny example and laughs derisively at it. Then you look at this and say "D'AWWWWWWWWWWWWW!"
  • Miyu from Trinity Universe. She's a talented Starving Artist who is supporting her family. She is shy and uncertain. She wears A-Rank Zettai Ryouiki. And she's a Cat Girl, complete with ears and tail.
  • Valkyria Chronicles resident Moe Isara Gunther is also the squads tank operator, making her and her Bishōnen brother the most powerful unit in the entire game.
  • Asha of Monster World IV is ridiculously cute. She was also the least popular character in the series, unfortunately, owing perhaps to the moe phenomenon not having arrived yet.
  • Kingdom Hearts has Namine and arguably given her woobie status Xion. Ventus manages to be both this and a Adorably Precocious Child.
    • And from the same game as Ventus, Zexion's "other, Ienzo. A Cute Mute who happens to be an orphan, and is just SO. TINY. His perpetual pout just makes him cuddlier.
    • Younger!Sora and Younger!Riku count too. Aww.
    • Kairi is still pretty moe by the time she grows up, but as a little girl? So precious.
  • Nozomi Okita from Sengoku Rance is an unusual one: she has the usual Meganekko and School Swimsuit type things going on, but then she'll also turn getting raped into something funny and adorable.
    "Moe!! A girl wearing glasses and coughing up blood is Moe!"
    • From the same game, Kenshin is a more traditional moe character when around Rance. The rest of the time, she's the Lady of War.
  • Talim, Amy, and Xianghua from Soul Calibur. Tira could be viewed as moe if you like Yanderes.
    • Pyrrha joins the list in Soul Calibur V, although many players have griped that she comes across as forced.
  • Devil Survivor is pretty heavy on the Moe (the better to freak you out with), but Amane Kuzuryu takes the cake. Her status as a Defrosting Emotionless Girl who gets royally screwed over by her father is enough to make her a Rei clone. And when you save her from Demonic Possession in her route, her return to normal is just adorable.
  • Athena Asamiya from The King of Fighters was always a fairly cute girl in all of her appearances but for the moe qualities, was usually outclassed by other characters (such as Kula, Yuri, or Momoko). However, by the twelfth installment, she was redesigned and fell squarely inside the definition.
  • The Final Fantasy series:
    • Final Fantasy XIII- Hope and Vanille
    • Vivi from Final Fantasy IX is the best example in the series. He has many of the standard moe traits: he is clumsy, shy, young and innocent. Add in existential angst to justify his social awkwardness and a doll-like appearance and you have a character that most players just want to give a hug to.
    • Tifa from VII can get pretty Moe at times, especially when she acts so shy and awkward around Cloud.
      • Aerith is quite Moe as well.
    • Can't forget Yuna and Rikku from Final Fantasy X, especially with how Woobie they both are.
    • Dissidia makes Terra so moe it's adorable, unless you hate her for it.
  • Isabella in Advance Wars: Days of Ruin. Possibly Penny as well, although it's offset by all the crazy.
  • Alistair in Dragon Age I. He is so innocent and shy, its adorable! Then he goes all knight in shining armor, or tries to, once you romance him a little.
    • When compared to food, one Dragon Age writer said Alistair is like "strawberries and cream, sweet and wholesome and delicious, and a little goofy." Another said he is like an apricot "Cute, sweet and just a little fuzzy."
    • Leliana is also terribly moe.
  • Bethany in Dragon Age II. The face system seems designed to give her moe eyes if you make a custom face.
  • The Waddle Dees in the Kirby series. They've been cute since the start, but have gained moe traits in more recent entries.
  • Rhyme from The World Ends with You. D'awww.
    • Even though you don't actually get to see her whole face, RG!Shiki is also very moe.
  • Male Example: Lucas from Mother 3. He's only twelve or thirteen, incredibly shy, and a major woobie, and many fans agree that he's incredibly adorable.
  • Saki from Ar Tonelico 3. She's so Moe that she produces a Memetic Mutation.
  • Golden Sun: Dark Dawn brings Sveta the Beastman Adept to the table. For starters, she's one of the most human-looking of the beastmen, with Pointy Ears, paws for feet, a very slight muzzle, and big catlike Green Eyes. But the true moe appeal of Sveta is her kind, gentle demeanor and huggably shy behavior (outside of battle), which is all justified: she feels guilty for the atrocities her people committed in their recent revolution.
  • The Maiden in Black from Demon's Souls; she is so cute that if you kill her, she will resurrect shortly after, and then apologize to you for not being able to die. The way she swings her feet on the stairs while waiting for you to get back is also nothing short of adorable.
  • Guilty Gear has May, Dizzy (of the Shrinking Violet type), and Bridget (though Bridget is a unique circumstance and could be something else).
  • Elizabeth from BioShock Infinite is significantly less helpless than is standard, but her appearance and personality still fit.
  • Every female character from Panel de Pon qualifies in some way or another, but Lip especially.
  • Isabelle from the New Leaf incarnation of Animal Crossing definitely counts as one. Just ask Google Images.
  • 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!"
