* In Literature/TheFourGospels, UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}} is described this way Literature/TheFourGospels: The three synoptic gospels describe that Jesus shines with light during the Transfiguration: "His Transfiguration when Peter, James and John are on the mountain with him ("His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light."" - Matthew 17). At the same time, Moses and Elijah appear talking to Jesus, and a voice from the sky declares "This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!" (Mark 9), revealing Jesus' divine nature.

* The Delphae in the ''Literature/{{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 ''Series/TimeTrax'', [[HumanAliens Procardians]] glow in their natural state. They can willingly remove the glow to appear human, though, although they avoid speaking, since their vocal cords are unable to make believable human sounds.

* 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.
