* Oh God, ''WesternAnimation/TazMania'', and that intro to the show. Three times, when the song goes into its chorus "Come to Tazmania", the show title in its brown stick font flies in every which way as the screen flashes many different colors. This was changed when the intro also got shortened, but some people have spotted the full intro unedited.

** CBBC created their own version of
the intro also got shortened, but some people when they aired the show in the early 2000's, that removes all the flashing. The reason for this? As it's a British broadcaster it runs in the faster PAL format (speeding the episodes up to fit 30fps into 25fps), so the flashing would have spotted the full been even worse. The intro unedited.is missing a few lines because of this though. And sometimes they've accidentally aired their unedited copies of the show.

* In ''VideoGame/TransformersConvoyNoNazo'', this happens after boss deaths and when starting a game. This was fixed in the VirtualConsole rerelease.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' used rapidly flashing lights in the Flash "[[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004748 [S] Jade: Wake up]]", to the point of it falling under this trope. AndrewHussie made sure to construct it so as to avoid triggering seizures though, despite the rapid flashing. As a whole, the series uses rapidly alternating and often brightly colored animation fairly often, though the only known time cases of photosensitives having problems with it have arisen is the [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006011 second intermission's Flash]], which caused multiple reports of headaches; it's safe to view it on Website/YouTube, though, as the site's compression pretty much destroys the framerate to the point where it's not a problem.

It probably goes without saying, but '''anyone who actually ''has'' photosensitive epilepsy should avoid any external and ''especially'' any Youtube links on this page.'''

* The commercial for the Tac Light had a scene where the user demonstrates the product to shine a burglar and the light flashes repeatedly. Surprisingly, it still airs on televsion!

** The actual stinger is that soon after the airing of the episode in question (which alone wasn't responsible for the total seizure count), several news outlets in Japan ''[[WhatAnIdiot aired the offending segement again]]'' as part of stories covering the incident, causing ''more'' seizures...

** Even then, the pill missiles still would've caused the lights, regardless if Pikachu or another character would've stopped it.

Not in any way related to EpilepticTrees. Compare to PowerGlows, where light produces a positive effect, and GlowingEyesOfDoom, which implies imminent evil rather than imminent (self)destruction. See also BrownNote, RedAlert, TechnicolorDeath, StopMotionLighting and ThroatLight. May fall under SensoryAbuse. Subtrope of SensoryOverload. See aslo BlindingCameraFlash

* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'': In episode 30, when Hiei uses his Ensatsu Kokuryu-ha, the screen flashes black and white repeatedly. Not that kind of black and white, but literally the colors black and white.
