* Magic items glow in ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' when being used. Some of them also "smoke" light.
** Actually they channel the users aura, which changes color and effect (i.e., "smoking" light) depending on the individual. This is why when someone loots a magic weapon, it glows differently than whoever was just using it.

* Literature/WhateleyUniverse example: [[PersonOfMassDestruction Tennyo's]] sword glows a brilliant blue, and can cut through pretty much ''anything'' since it's made of some sort of anti-matter. Tennyo herself does the glowy bit when she gets really amped up, complete with RedEyesTakeWarning. Several Energizers like Golden Girl also do the full-body glow when they kick in their powers.
* Literature/UnlikelyEden example: [[BadassAdorable Heather's]] axe starts of as just strangely blurry, but later, as her Preferred Weapon Effect kicks in it attains full glow. Additionally, the eyes of all [[SuperSoldiers Coalition soldiers]] and [[SuperSoldiers Ourkind]] bioluminesce when their abilities are activated.
* In ''Literature/{{Spectral Shadows}}'' we have Christine with her healing powers and her fur glows yellow when in use.

** Stormlight, the primary magic power of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'', glows, as one might expect from the name. A slight subversion in that most people use the glow more than the power itself, though it can be used to run {{Magitek}}

Power glows. The more power, the more glow. So, anything that glows is [[PowerMakeover automatically presumed to be superior]] to otherwise identical things that don't glow, and more glow is better. This is closely related to the RuleOfCool because glowing is cool, so things that glow automatically get more WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief, allowing them to be more unrealistically powerful. They're often GoodColorsEvilColors, too. For example, evil glows bright red, good glows blue or gold, and [[SicklyGreenGlow radioactive materials glow green]].

** FlyFF took this UpToEleven-- every piece of equipment could be upgraded... and L10 Enhancements created awesome blue glows. If you had Level 120 Equipment with L10 Enhancements in every slot, [[PowerGivesYouWings you got glowing blue wings]] as well as a pulsing blue BattleAura. That said, you had to be very rich to obtain that gear.

** All magic produces bright glows in ''{{Elantris}}'', because it is the sign of the power of [[TheForce the Dor]] breaking in to the physical world. The most powerful practitioners of magic, the [[PhysicalGod Elantrians]] actually glow non-stop, but other magic-users produce light with their powers as well.
