* Thanks to a light spell he learned early on, Paul in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'' can make part or all of his body glow via his hair, teeth, and nails. This proves to be extremely useful and is the power he uses the most after his invulnerability. Once, in a rage, he generated some kind of laser blast from his fingernails. When at high strength, he can pump extra power into the light, to the point where he literally explodes.

(In ''Keys'' he discovered that he could also do this at "low" strength and generate a lot of heat, though he didn't explode.)

* In ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'', while only two of the ten Orders of Knights Radiant had power over literal light, all use the titular Stormlight as the fuel for their powers.

powers. The aforementioned two orders, Lightweavers and Truthwatchers, can use light to craft illusions.
* In ''Literature/TheTraitorSonCycle'', the ''Fiat Lux'' spell is basically a weaponized light burst, and is an almost SignatureMove of the main character.

* In ASongOfIceAndFire has the priestess of the Fire God, though [[CrapsackWorld of course]] LightIsNotGood is very much in effect. Interestingly this is also the source of her [[CastingAShadow ability to birth shadow monsters]], [[FridgeLogic since shadows can't exist without light to cast them.]]

* Alice in ''TheMagicians'' specializes in phosphoromancy, a magical discipline focused around the manipulation of light. You know how kids will burn ants with a magnifying glass? She creates a magical "lens" a mile wide to focus sunlight into FrickinLaserBeams.

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' has Light as one of three magic types; it's strong against Dark magic and weak against Anima (and [[PlayingWithFire its]] [[ShockAndAwe three]] [[BlowYouAway sub-types]] by association) magic. While it is the weakest of the three types in regards to raw power (with the exception of the ''FireEmblemJugdral'' games, where it is stronger than Anima and on the same level as Dark), Light tomes weigh the lightest, which allows for priests and other mages to hit twice from the get-go. Many priests and promoted clerics (both start out only wielding Light magic or healing) also tend to have better skill growths compared to mages and shamans/dark mages, so Light magic garners ''plenty'' of critical hits. (Lucius from ''Blazing Sword'' is especially good in these regards). In ''FireEmblemTheSacredStones'', Light magic is also super-effective against the monsters that the heroes must fight - even more so when wielded by a Bishop, thanks to the class's skill Slayer.

Added DiffLines:

* Throughout much of ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia's'' Toru Hagakure's Quirk seemed to simply be her body being invisible. The Provisional Hero Licensing Exam confirms that her invisibility also enables her to refract the light within her body, creating light bright enough to blind opponents. Given that Hagakure's invisibility does ''not'' extend to her clothes, this means that her power involves flashing people both literally [[InvisibleStreaker and figuratively]].

* [[NonIndicativeName Despite its name]], the Light Aspect in ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'' is primarily associated with fortune and information, rather than actual light. Instead, that role goes to Hope, which is also heavily associated with [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angels]].

* ''DNAngel'' features Dark's opposite who, in his very first appearance, uses what looks to be light-based magic. While having white wings. And glowing blond hair. Yet he is, by no definition of the word, [[LightIsNotGood good.]]
