* During a brief period of unemployment, Sheldon from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' mentions trying to engineer some bioluminescent goldfish (specifically to serve as an energy efficient pet/nightlight). It doesn't really come up again after a throw-away gag at the end of the episode, but he was successful in creating at least one.
* One of the challenges on ''Series/FaceOff'' required contestants to design creatures to be displayed under black light as well as visible, meaning the artists had to paint with colors they couldn't even see.

* In the ''Series/{{Tracker}}'' pilot, Mel catches a glimpse of Cole glowing,something connected to his Cirronian nature and whatever he was doing in the bedroom at the time. (not *that*!)

* In ''DiscWorld/MenAtArms'', the narrator at one point explains that dungeons and caves (such as the abandoned sewers the protagonists are currently running through) always have bioluminescent mushrooms, or glowing muck, or just glow in general, so passing heroes can see their way. As the protagonists at the moment consist of a dwarf and a troll, both of whom can see in darkness just fine, the effect is somewhat wasted.
