* In the ''Literature/YoungWizards'' series, caves where wizards are likely to have adventures tend to be lit with "fire fungus". The arbitrariness is lessened a bit by implying that the glowing fungus is part of a whole ecology of magical underground life; for one thing, it's what the [[TheDarknessGazesBack little creatures that skitter through the shadows and watch with glowing eyes]] live on.

* Trolls from Literature/MaledictionTrilogy do not use any external light sources in their city (which is very convenient, since it is buried under the mountain, so fuel is scarce and smoke would be a problem). Each pure-blooded or mixed-blood troll is capable of creating a small light that follows them at all times. They can also infuse glass objects with their light and even provide them with a switch-on[=/=]switch-off capability.
