* ''VideoGame/BugFables'': The Golden Settlement and the Golden Path leading to it have plenty of windmills, fitting for the primary breadbasket of Bugaria. It's also where you first learn to use Vi's Beemerang to spin various mechanical wheels that function much like the windmills.

Sister trope to LighthousePoint, since windmills and lighthouses are usually used in the same way. See also LandOfTulipsAndWindmills for the HollywoodAtlas version of UsefulNotes/TheNetherlands, which make an abundant use of this trope. Unrelated to WindmillPolitical, NoMereWindmill and WindmillCrusader (except for the TropeNamer).

See also LandOfTulipsAndWindmills for the HollywoodAtlas version of UsefulNotes/TheNetherlands, which make an abundant use of this trope. Unrelated to WindmillPolitical, NoMereWindmill and WindmillCrusader (except for the TropeNamer). In video games, it's likely to appear in GustyGlade levels.



* The Windmill Plains, from ''VideoGame/DiddyKongRacing''. After all, it's even in the name.
* As one could expect after seeing the level's name, ''many'' windmills appear in the "Windmill Hills" level from ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryTropicalFreeze''. Their rotating blades carry platforms and the Kongs have to jump from one to the other carefully as not to fall in BottomlessPits.

* The Windy area in ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'' features a tall windmill at the top of the spiral mountain at the center, but by the time Conker tries to explore it [[spoiler:Rodent accidentally destroys it when he's blown away from the exploding Tediz island]]. According to Conker himself, it was meant to be the last level in the game (and because of its destruction, the actual level that serves as the last is the Panther King's castle).

** The Kakariko village windmill in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' is the town's most prominent feature. It is actually a wind''pump'', as it is used to draw up water from the well that sits in from of it.
** A big windmill-slash-lighthouse is the main landscape feature from Windfall Island in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker''. A rather smart choice for a power source if the name of the island is to be believed.
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', two windmills appear Skyloft. [[spoiler:The two actually are important to the plot, as rotating them toward the Light Tower activates it, which is crucial to find the Isle of Songs]].

** The ''VideoGame/YoshisWoollyWorld'' level "Knitty-Knotty Windmill Hill" takes place in a grassland with an absurd number of windmills, some of which carry platforms on their sails so they can be used by Yoshi.
