* In ''WesternAnimation/TitanicTheLegendGoesOn'', [[ThoseTwoGuys Kirk and Dirk]] break into a woman's room to steal her jewelry and close the door without turning on the lights. It then makes things very confusing when someone and a pet enter and a scuffle breaks out (the movie was trying to trick the audience into thinking that the woman and her dog returned, when it was the thieves' boss and her rat dog.)

* Averted in-universe in the finale of ''Film/TheSilenceOfTheLambs''; when Buffalo Bill cuts the lights in his underground basement, Clarice Starling is thrown into ''complete darkness'', causing her to panic slightly and mostly reach out blindly for anything to get her bearings. Meanwhile, the audience can still see, as we are shown Bill's POV through night vision goggles.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/ConanHyborianAge'', the dungeon in which happens most of the action is almost completely filed with complete darkness, the only exceptions being either rare rooms with lit candles or braziers, or rare instances of rooms with holes in the ceiling. The mod's description even explicitely advices to bring torches.

* Several of ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' games feature caves and dark dungeons which only become clearly visible using a lamp in-game. Only a partial aversion, though, since there are other unlit areas that are perfectly visible without using a lamp...

* The entire Halloween episode of ''Series/FreaksAndGeeks'' takes place in broad daylight, with the ''teenage troublemakers home well before sunset'', because the directors were unwilling to use HollywoodDarkness and couldn't afford a night shoot.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' series, the difference between night and day is nothing but a slight tint shift (orange in daytime, bluish during the night). It's always well-lit indoors, too.

* ''Literature/{{Huge}}'' has this problem, which makes the many night scenes a bit distracting.

* A common criticism of ''ThePacific'' was that the night combat scenes were often dark and confusing (very much TruthInTelevision, as the Japanese were quite fond of attacking at night). The night attack during the Battle of Gloucester in particular stands out, as the action occurred at night in the driving rain. It was lit almost entirely by grenades and mortar fire, muzzle-flash, and the occasional flash of lightning.

** Caves. Always so well-lit, even when there are no light sources anywhere. This was finally partially fixed in ''Series/{{Enterprise}}'', which used the blue filter.

** Also fixed in the more modern series when the ship suffers a total power failure--the corridors are shown pitch-black, illuminated only by flashlights.
