A {{Comedy}} trope in which a light is far brighter than any RealLife light of that type, or possibly anything short of the sun. Generally established by panning all the way out to space with the beam still visible. Bonus points if the light bulb used is a tiny incandescent one[[note]]the gag doesn't work as well with LED technology, where you can have a tiny 4mm
lamp put out almost twice the light of a regular household lamp[[/note]].

* The alternate mode of the flashlight in ''VideoGame/TheLongDark'' kicks the beam from 20-ish lumens to ''at least'' 3500. To compensate, [[TenSecondFlashlight it kills the battery power in seconds]]. It's good to scare away the [[SicklyGreenGlow glowing wolves]].

Added DiffLines:

* A variety of RealLife lights verge on this, except for the small fact that they are in fact a ''reasonable'' degree of brightness for the tasks they were intended for. This includes powerful spotlights mounted on aircraft and ships, and even weaponized high-intensity lamps mounted on ground vehicles [[BlindedByTheLight meant to blind and disorient the enemy.]]

* In an episode of ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'', Kramer protests a Kenny Rogers Roasters restaurant because its neon sign is too bright keeping him awake at night. The red light can be seen from Jerry's apartment door, and when Kramer opens the door at one point, he reacts as though physically struck by the light.
