* Christ initially seems to lack a halo in ''Art/TheLastSupper'', but if one completes the pediment above Jesus, it creates a circle around Jesus's head that acts as a substitute for a halo.

* Space Marines of ''[[TabletopGame Warhammer40000]]'' 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.

* ''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.
