* In ''ComicBook/ZombiesChristmasCarol'' pure, loving light, as represented by Fan and Fred, is universally good and can heal the zombies.

Why having [[CueTheSun the sun appear]] is good. Also the reason WhiteMagic is called that. Related to HeavenAbove, since the sky and the light-bearing suns often go hand-in-hand when depicting God. This trope's relationship with the sun can often lend it to be used similarly to RaysFromHeaven, CueTheSun, and WatchingTheSunset. See also HolyHalo, ShiningCity, and ShiningGoodness.

LightIsNotGood originated as a subversion of this {{trope}}. Note, however, that GoodIsNotNice can also come into play if said hero has an affinity for light, and both Light is Good and LightIsNotGood may come into play, as a {{Hypocrite}} tries to pose as a good guy by taking on the trappings suitable for the good guys. If a story wants to use Light is Good and DarkIsNotEvil at the same time, it's generally justified as [[BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil both forces being necessary for a truly stable and peaceful world]], with the perceived 'evil' of darkness being a misunderstanding between the sides.

* As Dante explains in ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'', "On high, joy is made manifest by brightness, as, here on earth, by smile." What he means is that the saints living in Paradise are encased in light that gets progressively brighter the closer they are to God. By the time Dante has ascended the first three spheres of Heaven, the light of the blessed is too bright for Dante to recognize people he knew back on Earth.

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 ''other'' 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.

* Deconstructed in ''Fanfic/TheQueensConsort'', as while light is something embraced and dwelled upon by most of fairy kind, it is not a simple case of "light = good, dark = bad". In-fact, one of the biggest dilemmas in the story is that a random solar flare gives Elsa magic-based amnesia, making things harder for when the ritual to keep the darkness away needs casting.

* {{Webcomic/Homestuck}}: The White carapaces are all the good-guys. Rose plays with this, as she is the only light player to not fall into LightIsNotGood, but she's also the one most involved in darkness and destruction, though she never raises a hand to her friends and always fights with them. She becomes a more traditional example after her ascension to God Tier (featuring bright orange robes), and later when she's shown to use the Quills of Echidna.
