* Ell from ''Webcomic/WhatsShakin'' is the main healer of the group.

* ''Webcomic/ChampionsOfFaraus'': Hyperion, a God of Light, and one of the main characters, can use light magic, although due to magical restrictions of some kind, he is usually stuck as a sort of magical MissionControl to the others, unable to help them with his light magic directly.

* From the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'', Neon, Strobe, Spectrum, Photon, Allustria, Fireworks, Peter Pan, Solar, Sunspot, Eclipse (who can also manipulate darkness), Dagger, Tinkerbell, Independence, Blue, Rave, Rainbow, Senhora Luz Solar, North Star, Shining Dawn, Brightstar, Eclat ("Burst" in French), Iris, Ushas, Moonshadow (who, like Eclipse, can also manipulate darkness), Tecza ("Rainbow" in Polish), Prezma ("Prism" in Russian), Ion, and Radian can all generate, control, and manipulate light in various ways.
* In ''VideoGame/TodayIDie'', the protagonist uses light to progress through the story.
* ''{{Website/Neopets}}''' elemental system includes light - light-based weapons, Light faeries, etc.
* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'':
** Beacon can blast sunlight from his hands. He's on a team that hunt creatures of the night.
** Also, Prism, who may be known more for his healing powers, but who can also fire energy blasts and is definitely [[ThePowerOfTheSun solar-powered]]. Well, he ''is'' the avatar of [[Myth/GreekMythology Apollo]]...
* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' has a few characters who use weaponized light. Most of the members of New Wave have some form of light based abilities, as does Purity, [[LightIsNotGood a neo-nazi supervillain]].
** There's the very creative use of short-distance time portals the indian villain Phir Sē does: two linked portals, one slightly further in the past than the other. Then he takes advantage of the paradox-free nature of his power to loop the same photons over and over, until he has what he calls a [[IncrediblyLamePun time bomb]] with light brightly streaming between the two portals in preparation for Behemoth's attack. Said attack, charged up for a few hours, was said to be able to level the whole indian subcontinent. He had to cancel a previous attempt because he was getting too tired, and such attack he charged up for THREE DAYS.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', light is more of a concept than an element, largely expressed in the form of [[SoulPower energybending]]. In the latter's Book 2, Raava, the spirit of light, is introduced - though she rarely displays actual photokinesis -, and in the finale [[spoiler:Jinora acquires light powers as well]]. Strangely, the villains, which supposedly stand for [[DarkIsEvil darkness]], can make use of light powers, Unalaq basically infusing water with light energy and Vaatu firing violet beams of light.
* Sunburn from ''WesternAnimation/{{Happily Ever After}}''; as the name implies, she can control [[ThePowerOfTheSun sunlight]]. Interestingly, she fits the [[PlayingWithFire fire archetype]] very closely, being HotBlooded, very easy to piss off and having red skin, unlike the usual "pretty and divine" light-themed characters.
* Almost all {{unicorn}} characters in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' have demonstrated the capacity of generating light with their horns at some point.
** Special points go to [[TheHero Twilight Sparkle]], when she and her friends embody the Elements of Harmony.
** The [[PhysicalGod god-princesses]] Celestia and Luna command the Sun and the Moon respectively, so they most likely have this power as well, potentially considerably magnified. Celestia actually gets to demonstrate it in the Season 2 finale. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, the villain she was trying to blast was boosted up on [[ThePowerOfLove stolen love power]] and won the BeamOWar duel.]]
** In "Boast Busters", Trixie showcases the ability to manipulate an actual rainbow.
** Sunset Shimmer's power set is normally PlayingWithFire, [[spoiler:but her AllYourPowersCombined form in ''Friendship Games'' trades that for lots and lots of golden light effects (which makes a bit of sense, given she was Princess Celestia's student).]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Doctor Light. Actually manages to be more powerful than the Teen Titans themselves during his debut episode, except for [[CastingAShadow Raven]], who traumatizes him to the point that, by merely showing up, she defeats him instantly.
** This becomes a BrickJoke later on.
-->'''Raven''': Remember me?
-->'''Dr. Light''': (''weakly'') I'd like to go to jail now, please...
** And it's even worse for the poor sap in his last appearance in the series, when he decides to commit a crime in broad daylight while ''every Teen Titan in existence is in Jump City,'' having just defeated the Brotherhood of Evil. It's just too bad we never find out how ''that'' turns out.
* Stella from ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' gets her powers from the Sun (mostly) and the Moon, and her attacks consist of casting beams of light. She can also concentrate her energy to make herself glow brightly in dark places. Stella can create streaks of solar energy and is able to create explosions of sunlight that can leave the opponent temporarily blind. She can shape sunlight into barriers and shields, which is extremely useful. She can conjure light in any area, no matter how dark.

* 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]].

Want to show how good and just your hero is? Then just use this counterpart to CastingAShadow: ''Light''! This frequently involves [[HealingHands healing]] and divine powers, although this can mean literal light as well. This may overlap with HolyHandGrenade if the powers in question are used to attack. Like most other types of elemental manipulation, the laws of physics give way to RuleOfCool.

RuleOfCool. Users of light powers may be able to project HardLight or fire FrickinLaserBeams.



TheHero is likely to use this, and if so, is likely to be [[PersonalityPowers a saint]]. The hero is likely to learn this from the BigGood or the TheMentor, who will be the master of this. Alternately, a work may instead use LightIsNotGood, in which case, this may be used by the villain. In that case, similar to how TheSacredDarkness illustrates a way to portray CastingAShadow in a pure and holy fashion, a villanous or "corrupt" form of light may involve such lovely things as light so bright that it burns out the victim's eyes, causes his flesh to be brutally melted off, etc.

A SubTrope of ElementalPowers. Usually [[ElementalRockPaperScissors trumps]] [[CastingAShadow darkness]], though the reverse is also possible. [[MutualDisadvantage Or both, even]]. For double the fun, see YinYangBomb. See also ThePowerOfTheSun, which may or may not be related to this, depending on the setting.

* 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]].
* Ripple from ''Manga/Jojo'sBizzareAdventure'' works like this. A fighting style in which a person uses breathing techniques to envelop thier bodies in sunlight energy, thus increasing the power of thier punches. It's also very useful against vampires.
