* The film adaptation of ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince'' has a [[TearJerker melancholic]] version of this trope towards the end. [[spoiler:After Dumbledore dies and his body is found at the foot of the ramparts, the crowd of people gathered raise their wands in tribute to the [[TheArchmage great wizard,]] [[TheObiWan teacher and mentor]]. Their wand tips are lit, and the collective energy burns away the Dark Mark in the sky above, sending a clear [[DefiantToTheEnd We Will Not Surrender]] message. Doubles as both a [[TearJerker Tear Jerker]] and a [[HeartwarmingMoments Crowning Moment of Heartwarming]].]]

* The local currency in ''BrutalLegend'' (a.k.a. ''HeavyMetal The Game'') are the Fire Tributes, which are actually signs of approval by the [[PhysicalGod Gods of Metal]] and appear as 2D hands holding lighters whenever you do something awesome like jumping over a canyon in your hot rod or beating a mission.
* Certain encore performances in ''GuitarHero II'' are accompanied by members of the audience waving lighters. (Yes, Free Bird is one of them.)
