* In the film ''Film/{{Legend}}'', the heroes must reflect a beam of sunshine all the way down to the bottom of hell.

* While not a puzzle, ''The Mummy'' had the group enter a large, dim tomb. Evie angles a mirror on a stand to direct the sunlight above into several other mirrors positioned around the room, illuminating the room. The Series/MythBusters [[JustForFun/TropesExaminedByTheMythBusters tested]] this. While you can light a room this way, the constantly moving sun means it won't last long, and it is nowhere near the movie's level of light.

* The Reflector in ''RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal'' is normally used for these. Different from most other examples in that it incorporates a field that absorbs the beam, and an emitter that can be pointed anywhere.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/StarWarsDroidworks'' has two missions that play this straight. There's the "Laser-Powered Fusion Reactor" in the Phrik metal mine, which you have to fix twice in a row [[spoiler: (although it's implied that the assassin droid hiding there sabotaged them deliberately to bait you)]]; and later, a series of ''laser-and-angles'' puzzles are used to view the data crystals you collected from the previous missions. The mirror controls become more and more broken the farther you go.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Reah: Face the Unknown'' contains such a puzzle in a fabric shop, using mirrors and a lens to light the fire in a vat of dye. You have to do it because the only person there doesn't know how. At one point, the player character comments on the fact that he can't see himself in any of the mirrors.
