* WebVideo/{{Lindybeige}} has a whole video series called [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLM5bKwQUA08ye59tygnx8vG8JbFwJ4_Pj Lindybeige about Torches]] nitpicking apart the inaccurate ways that movies use fire and torches. They randomly stick torches and braziers on walls and depict them burning even during the daytime, despite the fact that real torches burn out, produce a lot of smoke, are expensive, and by no means a good way of lighting an interior. He even notices a scene in ''Series/TheLastKingdom'' where they [[SpecialEffectsFailure failed to conceal]] the gas pipe that was feeding a wall torch.

* ''Film/DungeonsAndDragons''. There are a number of torches burning on the walls of the den of thieves and even inside the maze of booby traps.



* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' actually has rules for torches and they give a pretty small amount of light. Which is why most people get Everburning Torches, or just cast Continual Flame. For those who cannot afford either, there is the low-level adventurer's two best friends: the bullseye lantern and the 1st-level spell ''light''.

* Given a sort of in-universe ShoutOut in ReadyPlayerOne. Much of the action takes place in a full-immersion world where one would not be surprised to find torches in various places. However, when the heroes go to one of the creators' houses IRL, dude has ''actual torches'' in his house. Heroes are impressed. One wonders what his insurance premiums must be.

* Both versions of ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead'' have Ben constructing a hasty torch from a table leg, cloth, and lighter fluid. Unlike most examples they produce copious amounts of smoke as they burn. Rather than being used for illumination, they're used to keep the zombies at bay as they fear fire.

* Averted in one [[Literature/ForgottenRealms Drizzt]] novel where Cattie-brie is told that there's no way she could carry enough torches or lamp oil to light her way in the Underdark long enough for her to reach Menzoberranzan, so she is provided with a magical artifact that lets her see in the dark instead.
