* ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': When Past Xavier first meets Logan, the former stands in front of very large windows with his family's crests, which are made out of stained glass. This gives the scene a church-like feel, and the sunshine is quite bright compared to Charles' dark silhouette, so it gives the impression that he's bathed in holy light.

* Space Marines of "TableTopGame/Warhammer40,000" expecially love this trope. Leaders like Chapter Masters and Captains often wear an "Iron Halo", a halo made of a metallic material and placed behind the head of the Marine, on their helmet or around the head. When active, the Halo glows with a sun-like aura and protects the wearer from almost any attack.
** This trope is likely adopted by the [[Galactic Conquerer Emperor of Mankind]], the creator of the Space Marine, who had an actual halo of light around his head at all times. A few of his gene-wrought sons, the Primarchs, are often depicted with one as well in paintings, and a few also had an Iron Halo as a part of their armour, most notably [[TheMessiah Sanguinius]], who had a pair of wings to go with his glowing halo of light.

**Hell, after skulls and wings, haloes are one of the main symbols of the Imperium of Man.
**The Space Marines' evil cousins, the Chaos Space Marines, sometimes wear cursed haloes, especially the [[DarkMessiah Dark Apostles]], who administer the chaotic faith for their warband.
