* The SyFyChannelOriginalMovie ''Thor: Hammer of the Gods'' makes frequent use of what may be a subtrope. Carrying a torch (or standing next to someone who does) helps you see in the dark, but apparently ''not by illuminating what you're looking at'', because the protagonists can keep their torches burning while spying on the antagonists! In real life, having the torch close enough to hold it would mostly turn off your night vision, and since it emits light it would be immediately seen by your opponents; even if they're too far away to see who's holding the torch, they would see the torch itself. Nor would a torch be good when hiding behind a corner, since the one you're hiding from could still see how it illuminates the other walls near where you're standing.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'' has a torch in it, in the cave Snake falls into following the duel with Ocelot at Bolshaya Past. It never runs out, can be turned off and on like a flashlight, and lights up immediately even after being underwater. It can also be used as an offensive weapon, clubbing {{Mooks}} or even [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential setting them on fire]].

** Zig-Zagged in ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'', the default Torch along with the Follower Torch never run out of fuel, not even water can extinguish them, it also gets rid of maggots from your body should your foes spilled them onto you. The Immolation Tinder, while not as effective as the Torch when it comes to lightning up a room and being unable to drive out maggots, it never runs out of fuel. However, both the Cleric's Candlestick and Scholar's Candlestick's weapon skill only lights up your candlestick for a set amount of time.

The Immolation Tinder, while not as effective as the Follower Torch when it comes to lightning up a room and takes one step further for being unable to drive out maggots, ''a torch made of sword'', and you can even breath fire with it never runs as many times as you want without running out of fuel. However, both Even if you run out of Focus Point, you can still breath fire with it, and the Cleric's Candlestick and Scholar's Candlestick's weapon skill only lights up torch simply lasts forever. One wonders why the First Flame can run out of fuels while your candlestick for a set amount of time.''torches'' can't.

+* Averted in ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'', your torch can run out of fuel, get extinguished by water, or set you on fire if you get drenched by oil. The only way you can get more fuel is to loot torches from corpses or enemies. Although you can light up your torch as many times as you want with a bonfire or lit fireplace, or simply squeeze a Flame Butterfly.

** "The Squire Of Gothos". There are a number of them burning at various places on the walls of Trelane's mansion. This is {{Justified}} InUniverse because Trelane is a RealityWarper who created his mansion using his powers.
