You can't expect all sorts of media to have flashlights, or other sources of light that runs on batteries, for characters to use in dark areas, so there's either {{HOllywood Torch}}es or the Fantastic Light Source to use. Perhaps its due to {{glowing gem}}s. Sometimes you can expect [[BioluminescenceIsCool luminescent flora and fungus]] in particular. Also the MundaneUtility of PowerGlows or those with [[LightEmUp Light]] ElementalPowers. Either way, it's almost always guaranteed to [[InfiniteFlashlight last indefinitely]].

See HollywoodDarkness, for when no explanation is given for all the light on the scene.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': Wands can generate light with the Lumos spell. It's either allowed, or undetected, by the underage-magic-detecting Tracer due to either its simplicity or the ease for a Muggle to mistake it for an ordinary flashlight.
** Originally used by Dumbledore, and later by Ron Weasley, the Deluminator had the opposite effect: when activated, it took the light away from nearby sources. But those lights could be carried around and used to illuminate other dark places.

* The ColdfireTrilogy has the Fire briefly wielded by Damian in the first book [[spoiler:before Calesta tricked Senzei intro drinking it, resulting in Senzei's death and the loss of the Fire]] and the coldfire wielded by the Hunter. The Fire was the last remaining sample of tamed solar fae bound to water with the prayers of thousands. Solar fae, unlike others, can only be tamed through massive collective effort and belief, and faith in the present is no longer strong enough to do so. It's a handy light source that is also anathema to any creature of the darkness. Coldfire is a "flame" that is as cold as true fire is hot (and just as dangerous) that gives off an eerie blue light. The Hunter wields a sword imbued with tamed fae that radiates coldfire as his weapon of choice.

** ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' has [[BigCreepyCrawlies Antlion]] larvae, glowing blue (very young) or yellow (older). Antlion Guardians also glow greenish, though this is intended as a warning to their potential prey that the car-sized LightningBruiser [[OhCrap about to]] [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom send you flying]] with a [[UseYourHead headbutt]] has neurotoxin.
