* 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.

A Hollywood Torch is a piece of wood about a foot and a half long, the end of which burns brightly. It emits no significant smoke and never burns out. It tends to produce [[NuclearCandle just enough light to fully illuminate a room]], no matter the size, unless of course there's something horrible in a corner that we're not meant to see just yet. In some cases they can provide enough light to cast their own shadow, despite this being physically impossible.

impossible. For the horror movie variant, use the arm or leg ripped off a dried-out skeleton, wrapped with a scrap of cloth (or, worse, ''[[YouHaveToBurnTheWeb cobwebs]]''). Naturally, this is just as bright and long-lasting as any other Hollywood Torch; never mind that dry bone isn't flammable at sub-crematorium temperatures.
