* In the most recent book of the ''Literature/WheelOfTime'' series, main character Rand gets one of these shining on him during a key character moment. Possibly [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by the fact that his ta'veren nature warps probability (ItsComplicated) and the combination of his being a FisherKing and slowly growing more and more insane has resulted in a continent-wide pattern of overcast weather that only starts to break when he begins to get his screwed-up little head back together.

* It is told that Joseph Goebbels exploited this for dramatic effect during one of Nuremberg rallies. As the clouds were shifting, he timed his speech just long enough to make sure the sun came through in time for AdolfHitler to enter the podium. The effect was staggering.

Note this can only be when it's used as a substitute for a spotlight. If sunlight is actually used in the story to highlight something, like killing {{Dracula}} or [[Franchise/IndianaJones finding the location of the Ark of the Covenant]], it's not this trope.

* In ''MetroidPrime'' there are a few places where Chozo Statues are resting, the ceiling is cracked and sunlight gets through. (And yet on the "Overworld", it's constantly raining.) The sunlight may not be directly on the statue, but it's close enough to give that entire room that effect.
