* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', every character who goes Super Saiyan glows. While other characters can summon a BattleAura, Super Saiyans are constantly glowing, as indicated by their clothes and skin tone being lighter even when the Battle Aura is off, and the hyper saturation of their hair in the most recent special.

* In ''{{Elantris}}'', before being reduced to twisted wrinkled pseudo-zombies, Elantrians glowed faintly. [[spoiler:After the problem that removed their powers is fixed, they start glowing again.]]
* {{Deryni}} auras: Deryni don't have to show their auras, but sometimes they do, often as a means of revealing themselves (since TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse). [[GrayAndGrayMorality Glowing is no guarantee of goodness among Deryni]].

* The Great Priest of Ishtar from ''DragonLance'' is the greatest cleric on Ansalom and is perpetually clad in unbearable light. [[spoiler:It's later revealed that it is much less impressive than it seems.]]
* The Delphae in the ''{{Tamuli}}'' trilogy are known literally as "Shining Ones". Their glow came indirectly from their god, Edaemus, who made the lake in their isolated village glow. They had to drink from it, and they eventually started to glow, too. It was originally nothing more than harmless divine foolery, but when people started persecuting the Delphae, Edaemus gave the glow a purpose: a warning that their very touch [[CruelAndUnusualDeath could melt the flesh from your bones]]. From then on, the sight of a Delphae made most people flee in terror.

* In ''StarWarsTheCloneWars'', "The Daughter" is so thoroughly in tune with the Light Side of The Force that she innately glows. In fact, when [[spoiler:she dies, one sign is she stops glowing.]]

* ''DigimonAdventure'': Kari ends up glowing at least twice. One time she's used by a mysterious force to provide exposition. Another time she comes across some enslaved Digimon and helps them become free. This seems appropriate for someone who wields the Crest of Light.
