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]].

** In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E25ToWhereAndBackAgainPart1 To Where and Back Again]]", the inside of the changelings' hive is lit by seemingly organic, bioluminescent green pods hanging like fruit from vine-like structures growing on its ceilings. These vines and lamp-like pods are only scattered and occasional in some areas and cover almost every inch of the ceilings in others, in which occasions they're also found growing on the walls and floors.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', producing a glow from their horn is a basic spell for unicorns, alongside telekinesis. It's easy enough that even a somewhat dim-witted foal like Snails can cast it (although it takes him some effort). The light can be directed into a narrow beam that may or not project an image, as shown by Rarity, Twilight and a number of unicorn Royal Guards. Regular flashlights also exist, but it's not said whether they're magic-based or electric.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/{{Unsounded}}'' gives these a MundaneSolution. Since the FunctionalMagicSystem of Pymary can only manipulate existing Aspects of reality, luminous [[http://www.casualvillain.com/Unsounded/comic/ch04/ch04_42.html starflies]] are juiced and sold to spellcasters so they have a handy source of Light Aspect to draw on.

Added DiffLines:

* Trapping fireflies or similar luminous insects and bottling them to create a light source is practically a trope of its own in light-hearted inventory-based adventure games.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'' has glass spheres with gemstones in the center infused with the titular Stormlight used as lamps, they provide a steadier light than oil lamps or candles, and can be easily recharged by leaving the spheres out in a [[HostileWeather highstorm]]. They are [[PracticalCurrency also used as money]], and so using them as light sources is seen as a sign of wealth.

They are [[PracticalCurrency also used as money]], and so using them as light sources is seen as a sign of wealth. In [[AllThereInTheManual Arcanum Unbounded]], a scholar theorizes that this is at least partly due to the fact that the planet has a higher oxygen concentration than most worlds. While in modern times the people understand fire enough for it to be safe, in pre-history it was likely too dangerous to be used as a casual light source, leading to the ubiquity of the safer gemstones.
