* Wing Gundam, from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam Wing'', emits these when it self destructs. If this one is remembering correctly, and he sincerely believes that he is, so does Gundam Sandrock before it also self destructs. Additionally, in the movie/three episode post-series OVA, all mobile suits self-destructed seem to exhibit this glow. Y'know what? I could've made this shorter by simply saying "In Gundam, if it self destructs, it glows like a Christmas tree."

In one distinctive variant it [[XMeetsY meets]] the PillarOfLight in a "lighthouse meltdown" effect. Series of beams or lines of light spring out from the object, either from obvious locations, such as the eyes/mouth/other orifices for a creature, or they can simply shine randomly through the surface before it all gives up, often appear one at a time in rapid succession. The actual explosion may take the form of a giant burst of light.

** Happens a lot with exploding planets in video games. Zebes, Phaaze, [[{{Gradius}} Bacterion]]... I guess video games really like having an extra glow before the EarthShatteringKaboom.
