** The 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''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' has the Beacons, which, you guessed it, you have to gather and build yourself. The Nether Star in particular requires building and killing The Wither. In addition to the Pillar of Light, it grants you up to two status effects while you're in range.

* In the Franchise/StarWarsExandedUniverse book ''I, Jedi'', the title Jedi is caught in a massive firestorm of explosives. He absorbs all of the energy and sends most of it straight up. (For extra {{Badass}} points, he uses some of the power to weave a city-wide illusion of a [[HugeHolographicHead giant spectral Jedi]], with the pillar as the blade of his lightsaber.)

** Rugal, Vice, and Mature can cause them when they use certain "slamming" Desperation Attacks (Rugal and Mature when they press the foe against the stage "wall" and when Vice hits her power bomb). Usually the image of a skull can be seen within. Rugal's son, Adelheid, can also do it with his wall press super.
