* In ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'', lyou can find Blinkroot hidden underground, which [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin does exactly what you'd think it does:]] Blinks. (Though only when it's blooming.) Also to be noted are tall Glowing Mushrooms, also found underground, and better for healing and potion-making than surface 'shrooms. Quite a number of mooks also glow in the dark.

(Though only mushroom biomes, the grass and various mushrooms glow almost as brightly as torches. Surface-level mushroom biomes are [[AlwaysNight dark even during the day]] so they too glow.
** Additionally, every kind of herb will glow
when it's blooming.) Also to be noted are tall Glowing Mushrooms, also found underground, and better for healing and potion-making blooming, though some more so than surface 'shrooms. Quite a number of mooks also glow in the dark.others.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Crimestrikers}}'', Nyx Marama is an anthropomorphic bat who can make her body (or part of it) glow in the dark for up to an hour at a time. She's also learned to use this power to create an attack called the Thunderflash, "a momentary blinding glow accompanied by an intense ultra-sonic noise, that can startle, stun and confuse an enemy."

Added DiffLines:

* [[EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods Creech]] from ''Film/MonsterTrucks'' displays this ability whenever he is seen swimming in water. [[spoiler: His parents and the other members of his species]] display this ability as well.

* The ants' cave in ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'' is lit entirely by luminescent fungi.



* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'':
** 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.
** In ''Discworld/{{Thud}}'', a mine run by super-conservative "deep down" dwarfs is primarily lit by vurms, bio-luminescent creatures that feed on carrion.

* Several flowers from the ''Streetpass'' game ''[[VideoGame/StreetpassMiiPlaza Flower Town]]'' are luminescent: the Jack-O'Luna, the Goldenglow and the Neonara, which are based on jack-o'lanterns, garden lamps and neon lights respectively.



** There's a couple of types of glowing mushrooms in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' - violet coprus [[note]]Inexplicably, they're not violet[[/note]] and luminous russula.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' glowing mushrooms can be found growing in some caves. There is also the nirnroot, a plant which glows ''and'' makes a sound. [[spoiler:Blackreach]] is a huge underground area full of enemies, ruins, giant glowing mushrooms and ''crimson nirnroots'' (which are like regular nirnroots, but are red instead of green). Especially the Dawnguard add-on is fond of this. Both the fauna and flora of forgotten Valley of ancient Falmer love this trope. Caverns are lit by glowing flowers that retract themselves to their shells and animals have glowing blue stripes on them. Similarities with Avatar definitely coincidental.
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' has [[spoiler:[[TheManBehindTheMan Demise]]'s hair]]. Skyview Temple is also littered with biolumiescent mushrooms.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Miitopia}}'', the background of some levels in the Realm of the Fey features flowers that glow at night in some levels, like the periwinkle vines in Bigg Forest and the lotus flowers in Lotus Lake.



* The Mushroom Garden in ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies'' is lit almost entirely by luminescent fungi.



* ''VideoGame/{{Subnautica}}'' ''[[UpToEleven loves]]'' this trope. Just about ''everything alive'' other then the player has some kind of bioluminescence, with some exceptions such as the [[ThreateningShark Stalkers.]]
