* The seven colours of the light spectrum (which constitute a rainbow) are each represented in the various Corps in the ''Franchise/GreenLantern'' franchise. Each colour is part of what's called an 'Emotional Spectrum', though they better correlate to things that drive people (in order: [[Characters/GLRedLanternCorps Rage]], [[Characters/GLOrangeLanternCorps Greed]], [[Characters/GLSinestroCorps Fear]], [[Characters/GLGreenLanternCorps Willpower]], [[Characters/GLBlueLanternCorps Hope]], [[GLIndigoTribe Compassion]], [[GLStarSapphireCorps Love]]), which the respective Corps use to manifest their rings' power. All of them combined create the [[ComicBook/BrightestDay White Light of Life]], while the [[ComicBook/BlackestNight Black light of Death]] feeds on the independent 'emotions'.

* ''RainbowBrite'', naturally. She uses the power of colours in rainbow form to keep everything happy and bright and colourful in Rainbowland, as well as on Earth. When Rainbow Brite is unable to fulfil her duties, colours quick start to fade and everything becomes rather gloomy... Rainbow Brite can also weaponise her rainbow beams to deflect attacks or even to launch attacks directly at baddies force them away/trap them. Not just all that, but her rainbows are also strong enough to allow Rainbow Brite to ride over them on her horse Starlight. And lastly, she uses these rainbows to travel all the way from Rainbowland to Earth!

Because rainbows seem to travel from the ground to the sky (and back, if complete), they are usually seen in mythology as some kind of bridge or other connection point to and from heaven; in Myth/NorseMythology the rainbow is Bifrost, the bridge to Asgard; in [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Mythology]], Iris is the goddess of the rainbow as well as the messenger of the gods (Which makes this OlderThanFeudalism). In [[Myth/IrishMythology Ireland]], a rainbow's base is also a great place to keep a pot of gold (in fact, it serves as a perfect hiding place, since it's impossible to reach). In ''Literature/TheBible'', the rainbow is a pledge that the world will never again be flooded to destroy all living things. Meanwhile in Japan, a rainbow is traditionally an ill omen, of doom or at least bad weather, though the Western perspective has become more widespread there.

* In ''{{Warbreaker}}'', the GodKing, or any other person with a sufficient amount of [[LifeEnergy Breath]], causes anything white in his vicinity to produce rainbows. These colours can then be used to power Awakenings.
