** One of the characters in the ''Friendship Is Magic'' series is Rainbow Dash, a {{pegasus}} with a rainbow colored mane. She used her "sonic rainboom" to create a crash that gave off a mushroom cloud to destroy an old barn.

She used her "sonic rainboom" to create a crash that gave off a mushroom cloud to destroy an old barn. [[spoiler: And it's noted that her very first sonic rainboom basically set the entire series into motion, enabling the Mane 6 to get their cutie marks in the first place.]]

* Oh, so, ''very'' subverted in Update 2 of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddysWorld''. Chica's Magic Rainbow is the featured character of the minigame of the same name. She starts out encouraging the player, then turns into a {{Jerkass}} who berates the player, eventually killing the player herself if the player takes too long. [[spoiler: She's also the TrueFinalBoss of Update 2, is one of the hardest bosses to defeat, and, again, kills the party with one hit kills if the timer runs out.]]

* Unlike everyone else ([[ColorCodedCharachters who's magic is only one color]]), [[CloneJesus Vivio]] from ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' has rainbow colored magic, which InUniverse is known as [[GratuitousGerman Kaiserfarbe]] (Emperor Color).

* In ''Anime/KillLaKill'', Kiryuin Ragyu has spectra in the underside of her hair, and rainbows figure in several of her garments. This may tie in with the Japanese view of rainbows as symbol of calamity, as she's the BigBad in the series. Also, it indicates her connection with [[EldritchAbomination life fibers]], which also emit rainbow sparkles on occasion.

* In Anime/CaptainEarth, Albion's [[spoiler:read, Teppei's]] singularity is creating a circular rainbow out of thin air. Doesn't sound very impressive, but his sword and shield in Kiltgang form are also made of rainbows and he's regarded as quite powerful.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. The game has a long history with powerful rainbow spells. The weaker effects can blind or otherwise temporarily disable enemies, while the more powerful versions, the "prismatic" spells, have a separate effect for every color of the rainbow, ranging from very high damage (of three different elements) to instant death, being turned to stone, or being banished to another dimension. As every effect has to be resisted separately, this resulted in these spells being difficult to bypass and resist. 3.5 Edition has the Initiate of the Seven Veils, a set of magical prismatic veils and ''more'' rainbow spells. Also, the most powerful wizard isn't some battlemage throwing around fireballs - it's Rainbow Brite. This causes massive confusion amongst newbies, who expect the flashy fireballs to be more powerful than shooting rainbows and throwing glitter at people, when the reverse is invariably true - the strongest first level spell is generally agreed to be Color Spray (which shoots a rainbow of colors out to blind and stun enemies), the strongest second level spell Glitterdust (which blinds enemies and reveals hidden ones).

It also caused some confusion when, in 4th edition, the wizard and sorcerer classes were redefined to make them less redundant, making the sorcerer into the flashy striker who does lots of direct damage with elemental spells, removing them from wizards so they could concentrate fully on debuffing, which had been the way that they were strongest in the previous editions. Players who had never realized that direct damage wizards were bad compared to wizards who focused on disabling their foes rather than dealing down their hit points complained about wizards now being "underpowered" and not understanding why they had changed, when in reality they had -always- been controllers above all else and are one of the -strongest- classes in 4th edition.

-->'''Creator/DemetriMartin:''' I just think it's odd one group took refracted light. Pretty greedy, gay people.
* The Quechua people of Peru, better known as the Incas, use a rainbow flag (it used to be the personal flag of the Emperor).
