* Within minutes after the steam explosion that caused the Chernobyl accident, a number of employees at the power station went outside to get a clearer view of the damage. One such worker, Alexander Yuvchenko, recounts [[http://ecolo.org/documents/documents_in_english/cherno-alexander_yuvchenko.htm in an interview]] that once he stopped outside and looked up towards the reactor hall he saw a "very beautiful" LASER-like beam of light bluish light that appeared to flood up into infinity. This was most likely caused by the radiation escaping the reactor through a hole in the roof and [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ionized-air_glow ionizing]] the air it went through.

** The Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse ''loves'' this trope. The Bifrost bridge in ''Film/{{Thor}}'', the [[spoiler:Tesseract event, heavily implied to BE a Bifrost transportation]] in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', and the [[spoiler:portal to summon the Chitauri]] in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}.'' A JustifiedTrope, as all of these examples are implied to be derivatives of the same [[spoiler:Asgardian]] technology. ''WebVideo/HonestTrailers'' even cited "shooting a blue beam into the sky" as part of the MCU's StrictlyFormula in the Honest Trailer for ''Iron Man''.

* ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'': Zonders de-cored by [[YinYangBomb Hell and]] [[FinishingMove Heaven]] release a vertical blastwave when destroyed, although unusually for this trope, it does appear to give off shockwaves and heat; the Goldion Hammer makes Zonders [[DisappearIntoTheLight turn into light]], but also sends up a shaft of glowing energy in addition to the wavy, floating beam of glowing particles. The Eraser Head missile also produces this effect, shunting 99% of the energy into space.
