** However, [[ActionBomb creepers]] also overlap with DaylightHorror. While they only ''spawn'' at night, daylight has no effect on them. In fact, they can be ''more'' dangerous during the day, because players usually bring less armor and weapons with them when they're journeying out in daylight.

* In the British TV Movie ''The Eyes Have It'', assassins take over a school for the blind during a break, to turn it into a shooting post. They kill the only sighted person and pretty much ignore the helpless students. The students cannot wait for nightfall and have to use their teamwork and superior knowledge of the school to fight back.

* [[InvokedTrope Explicitly used]] in WiiWare game ''[[VideoGame/{{LIT}}''. The objective is to cross the nearly pitch-black rooms of the school by creating paths of light with lamps, computer monitors, etc. Stepping into an unlit area is instant death.

* The main mechanic of the short indie game ''VideoGame/TheLastLight'' is that the ''thing'' in the subway kills people who venture into the darkness. You have to manage power distribution in certain areas, keep your TenSecondFlashlight charged and have a good number of flares to get to the end.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Wick}}'' you need to stay in candle light. You don't die when you leave it, but the ghosts become much more aggressive.

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/SilenceOfTheSleep''. At one point in the final stretch where you're trudging through a rainstorm, you can only move when it's totally dark. When lightning strikes and lights up the screen, you have to stand perfectly still or the roaming monstrosities can catch you.

** In ''Doom 3'', a game [[WhoForgotTheLights infamous for darkness-related issues]], you have to choose between the flashlight or a weapon[[note]]unless you are escorting a scientist carrying a lantern; even then, that only happens once, the EscortMission lasts for less than two minutes, and the dumb sod rushes ahead to the exit and [[ShaggyDogStory gets killed anyway]][[/note]]. Player frustration with this arbitrary choice and the entailing FakeDifficulty led to the famous Duct Tape GameMod, in which Doomguy TakesAThirdOption by strapping the flashlight ''to'' his weapons.

* ''Franchise/SilentHill''. "Don't be afraid of the dark. Be afraid of what it hides."

* ''Franchise/SilentHill''. "Don't ''Franchise/SilentHill'' zig-zags this trope like a circlestrafing first-person shooter player. The DarkWorld of the town contains much harder fights, including most of the bosses, but [[OptionalStealth turning off your light and treading lightly]] is a valid and effective way to play.

* In ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'', the player has limited power and is trying to survive a wave of amoral animatronics trying to stuff them into a suit lined with gizmos and electronics, killing them in the attempt. If the power runs out, Freddy Fazbear himself appears and plays an OminousMusicBoxTune, leaving the player helpless to do anything but wait for 6 AM or their grisly death, whichever comes first.
