* When Liu steps into Rudak's dome in ''Literature/JunctionPoint'', every surface is covered in plant-like life that glows in greens and blues. Whether it's just natural, or the result of bioengineering, has yet to be determined.

* in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}: The Mask of Light'', [[KidAppealCharacter Takua]] gets distracted by some glowing coral-like structures. He immediately puts them on his head and starts hopping around like a fluorescent bunny rabbit.

* ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' has an AlluringAnglerfish which in addition to being a terrifying predator looks ''very'' cool. The sequel ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'' includes a bioluminescent squid in a similar vein.

** One day, you too can have [[https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn17003-fluorescent-puppy-is-worlds-first-transgenic-dog?DCMP=OTC-rss&nsref=online-news a glow-in-the-dark doggy!]]


Added DiffLines:

** There's also the practical side, in that a dark club is, well, ''dark'', which can make it difficult to see people in general and ''especially'' difficult to identify their faces. The faint glow of a glowstick may or may not be enough to illuminate facial features, but if you can remember the combination of colors and kinds of glowing clothing your friends are wearing, you may not need to see them. And if nothing else, it's easier to avoid accidentally slamming into another person if they're glowing.

* A more famous but unrelated protein is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_fluorescent_protein GFP]] (abbreviation for [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Green Fluorescent Protein"]]). Its derivatives have been established as common tools for scientific research. It's not true bioluminescence: the protein is merely fluorescent, so it only glows under a light source.
