** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', it is possible to invoke this yourself if you become a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]] through the Companions' questline. Unlike past games where becoming a werewolf was an InvoluntaryTransformation at night time, the particular type of lycanthropy the Companions possess allows for a ''voluntary'' transformation once per day, even in broad daylight.

** In the sequel, some of the most gruesome stuff happens in broad daylight and in especially well-lit areas. Crimes against sanity include: crucifying your enemies and brain-jacking them to become living turrets while butt-naked and in constant pain from taking orders from an insane fashionista, fighting your way past an army of LARP fanatics to kill their king only to realize he's just a baby robot and then watch him get skewered by a rogue agent, robot shakespeare, robot cannibalism, robot zombification, mass robot suicide, etc.

* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' has [[spoiler:Blasted Tokyo, which is an AlternateTimeline version of Tokyo in which the forces of Law seize the metropolis.]] There is a desert [[spoiler:where Tokyo once stood]], there are massive craters [[spoiler:that mark where major Tokyo districts used to be]], the poisonous atmosphere infects and eventually kills humans exposed to it, and demons roam the land killing off humans who dare to wander outside the sole human shelter. Yes, the sun shines [[spoiler:on this Tokyo thanks to the lack of a Firmament]], but that's the reason [[spoiler:the nuclear missiles were able to blow Tokyo to pieces]], leaving only a massive DeathWorld.
** In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'', most of the game is perfectly lit - all the better to see the [[DeathWorld devastated]], [[BleakLevel ruined]] [[NightmareFuel wreck]] that once was Tokyo.

** Also, the "sun" is actually [[spoiler: a giant cybernetic demon acting as representative of YHWH and ready to murder everything on earth simultaneously, because the entire world is literally built around it like a dyson sphere with weekly murder-fests from frenzied demons due to the sun's harmful mana-radioactive pulses]]. You may scream now.

* Most of the scenes in ''Film/TheWickerMan'' take place in broad daylight, including the terrifying climax. This lets the audience take in the [[SceneryPorn beautiful Celtic landscape,]] but also helps sink in the deranged surreality of Summer Isle. The things the villagers do in full view of one another wouldn't be nearly as off-putting if it happened at night.

* Justified in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' with the [[OurGiantsAreDifferent Titans]], which appear to harness most of their energy from solar radiation. So it is on clear, sunny days that we are able to see hordes of Titans devour humans alive. [[spoiler:This makes the attack on Castle Utgard at ''night'' all the more shocking. Titans are pretty damn scary no matter what time of the day they happen to be eating you.]]

* Director's commentary of the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' episode "A Better World" said that, for them, it was much more creepier when we see Alternative Universe Gotham entirely by daylight, which added to the dystopian feel that the universe's Justice League had created. In addition, the episode in question sets all events in the Justice Lord universe in the daylight and all in the Justice League at night.
