** 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''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.
