* In ''VideoGame/{{Smite}}'', if there's a Light-based deity (mostly sun), they're going to be good and benevolent deity, such as Khepri and Amaterasu. Ra zig-zags on this, though. He used to be a good deity of light, but then got horribly poisoned by Isis (she has her reasons) that he snaps and [[LightIsNotGood starts using his light more destructively]] [[{{Jerkass}} while being a jerk about it]], but he's still keeping the world light from being consumed by Apophis' darkness

* The ''Videogame/FireEmblem'' series uses this often in combination with DarkIsEvil, especially in the older games. Light magic is often supereffective against dark magic, with users of light magic dealing heavy damage to dark magic users, while taking less damage from them in return. In games with monsters infesting the world map, light magic is supereffective against them as well. It's especially true in ''FireEmblemJugdral,'' when the EleventhHourSuperweapon, the light tome called the Book of Naga, is the only weapon capable of [[ZeroEffortBoss easily taking down]] the BigBad of ''Genealogy of the Holy War'', a demon-possessed dark mage from a {{Cult}} of evil dark mages whose tome ordinarily cuts all damage he receives in half.

* Diane Duane's ''YoungWizards'' series works with this considerably, especially in the first book, although they play with it increasingly through the series and [[spoiler: at the end of the third book have a decisive Redemption arc where it is shown that Dark Does Not Have To Be Bad. Of course, the fact that the Powers don't live within linear time means there are still loads and loads of incarnations of the Lone One running around being evil for books and books more, but they've finally given him the chance to start going home.]]

* Angemon and Angewomon of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' are both angelic Digimon with golden hair who both debuted to promptly easily defeat a powerful dark Digimon with their powers of light. Angewomon takes this almost to ridiculous extremes - her partner is [[MessianicArchetype Hikari Yagami]], whose first name [[NamesToTrustImmediately translates to]] "''[[NamesToTrustImmediately translates light]]''", and who uses the Crest of ''Light'' to make her evolve to Angewomon to begin with. Oh, and near the end of ''Adventure'' she started ''[[PowerGlows glowing]]''.

It's one of the deepest ideas in our collective (un)consciousness. [[TarotMotifs The Sun]] brings heat, makes plants grow, helps us wake, explore, work, create. Gods of the Sun and Moon are associated with law, arts, the mind, justice, protection, inspiration, all the things that make up the best part of being ''human.'' (And even the ''[[FreudWasRight other]]'' [[FreudWasRight nice thing about being human gets this treatment]] - Venus is, after all, the Morning Star[[note]]And in turn, that was a trait acquired from proto-indo-european dawn goddesses, whose derivations still are associated with love in known mythologies[[/note]].) [[IdeaBulb The lightbulb coming on over one's head is the genesis of a great idea.]] By light we can see the world; by extension, light lets us confront evil and [[HolyHandGrenade destroy it]], both within and without ourselves.
