* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', it turns out the Fires of Friendship were a tiny faction of [[TopGod Fauna Luster's]] true power called down by the PowerOfFriendship. The Elements channel the same power, and their original form the Rainbow Of Light, was a divine gift to Equus from the gods. Ironically, the Rainbow of Darkness/Elements of Chaos are ''also'' this trope, as rather than being the opposite in good and evil, it's simply from the Draconequi half of the Pantheon.

* The gods in the ''Manga/DragonBall'' series have [[PhysicalGod physical forms]] and know how to fight. All of their attacks are technically this, since the user is a god themselves. Particularly noticeable in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' with [[spoiler: Goku Black]], who is very [[SmugSuper proud of being a god.]] He prefaces some of his attacks with phrases like "Punishment of the Gods" and "This is the Technique of a God!"

Simply put, this is when the Power of Good, which is supposedly devoted to [[LightIsGood light]], [[PowerOfLove love]], [[PeaceTropes peace]], {{forgiveness}}, and [[HealingHands good health]], is used to crush, maim, desiccate, disembowel, and destroy (usually with spells or weapons). It seems that GoodIsNotSoft after all.

Now this trope often happens when LightIsNotGood, but it can come into play just as often when [[LightIsGood light actually]] ''[[LightIsGood is]]'' [[LightIsGood Good]] ([[GoodIsNotNice albeit Not Nice]]).

In general, GoodHurtsEvil, and "[[ElementalPowers Light" or "Holy]]" magic tends to work most effectively on demons, undead, and other irredeemably [[AlwaysChaoticEvil evil]] creatures. In {{RPG}}s, these tend to include most of the main enemies at the end of the game. In milder cases, Holy is sometimes treated as [[InfinityPlusOneElement an elemental type damage that simply can't be mitigated]], or a way to induce VillainousBSOD.

Game designers may counterbalance this by giving the Light spells to the WhiteMagicianGirl or [[TheMedic healer]], since they'll usually be occupied with healing duty and won't be able to go nova on the enemy as often as the [[SquishyWizard attack mage]].
