Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff[]

Deadmau5 was an unlockable character featured in a limited time event in Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff during 2015. Unlocking him would give the player a redemption code that they could use to redeem a free download of 4x4=12.

Ghosts'n DJs[]

In Ghosts'n DJs, the player can unlock a mau5head power-up to gain Nyan Cat bullets. The game features "Polaris”, “4Ware", “GG", and "Three Pound Chicken Wing" when changed in options.

Goat Simulator[]

Deadmau5 appears as a non-playable character after you reach the top of the tower in Goat City Bay. Finding Deadmau5 gives you the ability to play the unreleased track "Petting Zoo". This also gives you a mau5head and the title 'deadgoa7'.

Nonstop Knights[]

A Deadmau5-inspired character was featured in Nonstop Knights, unlockable after you beat The Deadmau5 Challenge. Zimmerman used the design in the cover for the private preview of the track "Legendary".


Deadmau5 appears in Minecraft as a skin. Markus Persson was a fan of Deadmau5, and Deadmau5 was a fan of Minecraft. Because of this, Persson made a skin for Deadmau5 with ears. But the ears weren't part of the skin, they were part of the name tag. So if a user changed their name with the Deadmau5 skin, they'd lose the ears due to a bug.
