* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2'': The Artifices, massive robotic superweapons that the Aegises control, have halos representing their power. Yes, even the giant robot snake.

* Queen Albia, Her Undying Majesty of ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has little constant about her appearance outside of her hovering halo of glowing stars, and even this is slightly altered when she reveals a bit of just how dangerously sparky she could be with her very magic like abilities and power.

Either a gold ring floating over someone's head, or the more traditional shimmer of light like someone is holding a flashlight behind a character's head. In fiction (and ''lots'' of classical art), halos are basically synonymous with holiness and extreme good. It means you're either {{God}}, [[CrystalDragonJesus a non-denominational]] [[LowestCosmicDenominator equivalent]], an [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angel]], a saint, a buddha, the MessianicArchetype or a soul of the dearly departed in FluffyCloudHeaven (the real {{Heaven}} isn't quite so tacky). Although the term "halo" only dates back to the 17th century the trope itself is ancient, in the middle-ages it was known as the ''corona gloriae'' ("crown of glory") in Europe. While in the West it is associated with Christian iconography 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.

* Advocate angels in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' get a halo that invokes HolyIsNotSafe and rather quickly burns anyone who strikes the angel to a crisp.

* In ''WorldOfWarcraft'' several of the high level priest and paladin armors create halos. There's also an item that grants essentially a halo made of fire, for mages or warlocks.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'': Shirogane Karen is a FallenAngel. [[MinionWithAnFInEvil Just not a very good one.]]. Except that in reality it's strongly implied that she's still a normal angel who only believes she's fallen because she lost (as in, physically misplaced) her halo. [[spoiler: [[{{Troll}} Akane]] took it and is [[HiddenInPlainSight using it as a lightbulb]] in the Student Council room.]]

* In ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', the mosaic above the throne room depicts all members of the royal family with halos to highlight their divinity. Like other part of the pictures, the halos are moving thanks to Asgardian {{Magitek}}.

* In Fanfic/DeadEyedTsuna Hibari is frequently surrounded by light, though its less a symbol of his holiness and more so symbolism of Tsuna's terror worship towards him, is even lampshaded!
