* Also, ComicBook/{{Dazzler}} of the ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' is able to convert sound into light for various purposes, including FrickinLaserBeams, holographic images, and blinding flashes of light.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', surprisingly, does ''not'' have a specific "light" typing in its wide-ranging ElementalRockPaperScissors System, though [[PsychicPowers Psychic-type]] and [[OurFairiesAreDifferent Fairy-type]] seem to be stand-ins for light. Psychic has Pokémon like [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Jirachi]] and Espeon who is opposite the Dark Umbreon and can use sunlight to heal itself in battle; and Fairy has a few light-based attacks and is super effective against Dark types. As of Generation VI the angelic Gardevoir is both Psychic and Fairy type.
** In addition there are a few moves that are based around weaponizing light:
** The Normal-type Flash is used to blind the opponent/light up dark passages in the field.
** Lots of [[ShockAndAwe Electric-type moves]] also have lots of flashing effects. Even Thunder, which is actually more lightning.

* The Gems in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' are essentially light elementals, their bodies made of HardLight (sans GemHeart). They do frequently use their gems as flashlights and produce blinding flashes, but the most direct example are the [[BigBadDia]][[LightIsNotGood monds]], which can cause a blinding white light that [[spoiler:corrupts other Gems]].

** Magnus is the God of Magic and is heavily associated with light. Magnus served as the architect for Mundus, the mortal plane, but realized that in order to create it, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedra]] would have to make great sacrifices and would become forever bound to the world he was designing. Thus, he abandoned the project, and, along with the Magna-Ge, fled to Aetherius (the "Immortal Plane" and realm of magic) which formed the sun and stars in the process. Through them, magic and light flow into Mundus from Aetherius. To the ancient [[OurElvesAreBetter Ayleids]], he was actually called "[[RedBaron The God of Sight, Light, and Insight]]".
