** In ''Discworld/TheColourOfMagic'', [[spoiler:[[EldritchAbomination Bel-Shamharoth]] is defeated]] from the flash of Twoflower's iconograph going off. As a bonus there's even a photograph later, it's mostly of Rincewind's thumb with a few tentacles waving around at the edges.

* ThePinkPanther mistakes a case of camera flash blubs as eggs and swallows them. Every time he hiccups, he goes off in a flash from the bulbs, blinding a bear in a cave and after entering a photographer's dark room ruining the photographer's negatives (short "Smile Pretty, Say Pink!").

* The second stage in ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld had a unique paparazzi enemy, every snap of the flashbulb stunned your character (the ability was even called 'flash stun' in the credits) it doesn't do damage but stalls the character enough to let other enemies gang up on you.

* [[PinkFloyd Roger Waters]] asked his fans not to bring cameras and video recorders to his Athens performance (and at least a few others) of ''TheWall 2012''. The Athens show was being filmed for a DVD release, and the flashes and lights would have completely ruined the projections.

A person uses a camera and takes a photo...and the flash wasn't off. The resulting flash either blinds the unfortunate recipient of said photo or makes him see spots. This can be used as a handy distraction or even as a nasty form of ImprovisedWeapon. TruthInTelevision, as anyone who's ever had to take a school photo or have been at an area with a lot of flash photography can attest. SubTrope of BlindedByTheLight.
