* ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' has certain sections which take place in darkness, and the light is handled very well; you can see fine (though with realistically affected colours) within the area of your torch beam, and can see vague shapes at close range outside the beam, but absolutely nothing further away.

** A similar situation for ''{{Sealab 2021}}'', particularly "Fusebox".
* ''ScrewySquirrel'' had a classic scene where a dumb-guy dog chases him into a pitch-black cave. We see only blackness and hear some undecipherable loud sound effects...a moment later Screwy steps out in the light and tells us "Sure was a great gag, folks - too bad you couldn't see it!"

* ''{{Phelous}}'' is likewise none to pleased with the aversion in ''Seventh Moon'', especially since it's combined with JitterCam.

* In ''Film/{{Dune}}'' (1984), a hnnter-seeker drone is sent into Paul's room to kill him. Paul claims it is too dark for the probe to see, even though the room is well-lit.

* In ''Manga/WanganMidnight Maximum Tune 2'', Hakone is very dark at night, with the only things visible other than your opponents' car lights being whatever is in your headlights. However, ''Maximum Tune 3'' plays this trope straight instead, with Hakone being well-lit despite a clear lack of light sources. ''Maximum Tune 4''[='=]s Hakone is still lit up, but at least there's street lamps to justify it.

* In ''Film/{{Jaws}}, during the opening scene on the beach, Chrissie Watkins is taking off her clothes to go swimming at "night." This was done with filters to obscure the fully-nude actress, both entering the water and while you see her from the shark's perspective, presumably to keep the PG rating.

Added DiffLines:

* One episode of ''Series/{{Kings}}'' featured a blackout and street scenes were shot through a very strong blue filter. This only served to highlight the fact that they were shot during the day because characters' flashlights were clearly on but not illuminating anything. The bad quality of these scenes is only highlighted by the fact that the episode ends with a scene actually shot at night and it looks all the better in comparison to the rest of the episode.

* ''VideoGame/LaMulana'' has two areas that remain pitch dark until certain conditions are met: half of the Mausoleum of the Giants (or all in the remake), and one room in the [[BrutalBonusLevel Hell Temple]]. In the 8-bit version, the only things you can see are enemies and Lemeza, unless you fire the Flare Gun. In the remake, all you can see is a spotlight on Lemeza.
