* While not strictly a halo, the Fire Tablet artifact in ''{{Okami}}'' creates a circle the the sun's corona around Amaterasu when equipped... and gives her a nice damage reduction to fire and immunity to LethalLavaLand.

** [[spoiler: [[BonusBoss Father Rodin]]]] will sport a halo when fighting [[spoiler:him]]. Interestingly (and [[OhCrap intimidatingly]]), [[spoiler: his]] halo is the same one that [[spoiler: [[{{God}} Jubileus]] wears.
** You also collect halos as in-game currency. These halos are the usual gold rings rather than the elaborat ones worn by the Laguna.

* Now the Fantasy side of things is getting in on the halo action, with the Stormcast Eternals from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer Age Of Sigmar}}'' often having solid metal halos behind their heads, especially the heroes.

* ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'' has two. The Halo is a simple gold circle that hovers over a character's head and increases all of their statistics, while the Mitre surrounds their head with a yellow spiky radiance, and increases the chance for soul hearts to drop.

In fiction, halos are basically synonymous with holiness and extreme good. It means you're either {{God}} (or [[CrystalDragonJesus a non-denominational]] [[LowestCosmicDenominator equivalent]]), an [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angel]], a saint, the MessianicArchetype or a soul of the dearly departed in FluffyCloudHeaven (the real {{Heaven}} isn't quite so tacky). This is of course because of the religious connotations with [[ChristianityIsCatholic Catholic Christian]] religious iconography, despite the fact that halos are also a part of Muslim, Buddhist and other religious art. Traditionally, the presence of a halo on someone in art means they are inhabited with the Holy Spirit because of their great virtue.

Note that "halo", used to denote the visible sign of sanctity, dates back no earlier than the mid-17th century -- and indeed nearly all the terms used to denote this phenomenon are modern. The middle ages referred to this merely as the ''corona gloriae'' ("crown of glory") or more simply "the glory".
