* ''Film/KickAss''. During a DarkenedBuildingShootout, TheMafia mooks start a fire so they can see Hit Girl who's shooting at them with the aid of night vision goggles. She sets the flashlight on her pistol on strobe to blind them, then uses it as a distraction by removing it from her pistol and leaving it on a shelf. The remaining mooks all fire at the flashing light, so Hit Girl can come up behind them.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canal_Defence_Light One of the armored vehicles]] used in the Normandy landings in UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo was essentially an outdated tank with the gun replaced with a very high intensity lamp, entirely encased in the turret save for a narrow vertical slit. The turret would pan back and forth, perodically painting the German defenses with blinding light to make it impossible for them to see the troops on the beaches. They also had various filters they could put onto the light while in action, so as to make it harder to determine how far away the vehicle was if you wanted to [[{{Pun}} put its lights out]]. Unfortunately the weapon was so secret its use was minimal, as few officers were aware of its capabilities.
