* Even the semi-realistic ''{{lonelygirl15}}'' fell victim to this, albeit at a point when the realism was really starting to slack off.

* There are plenty of green glowing things at the nuclear power plant in ''TheSimpsons'', including Mr. Burns. In "E-I-E-I(Annoyed Grunt)" Plutonium is shown to be a glowing green instead of the real silver color, as well as a fluid instead of a solid (note that most plutonium used in the real world is in a liquid-like powdered form). A Carbon rod used to hold a door on a shuttle closed and seen in the opening is shown as a pale lime-green instead of the real life black.

* ''RickAndMorty'' in general is [[AmazingTechnicolorWorld brightly colored]] and tends to get away with this trope, especially concerning Rick's fantastic inventions and other alien technology. This makes seeing a multicolored test tube set become weirdly jarring because it seems so commonplace by comparison. Best example of this is when Doofus Rick is making ovenless brownies for Jerry.

* One easy example of this trope is the "[[http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/electric/pickle.html Electric Pickle]]" experiment, where a current passed through a pickle actually gets the pickle to glow. Though useless, it is fun to watch. The pickle's been featured in ''Series/{{CSI}}'' and ''BeakmansWorld'', to name a few instances.

* ''[[{{Earth 2150}} Earth 2140]]'' is a notable aversion of the radiation subclass. Radioactive fallout doesn't glow green -- or anything else. It's invisible, and indicated on the minimap with an overlay of black-and-white squares so you can actually tell where it is.

* [[Creator/{{Syfy}} Sci Fi Channel]] [[Film/SciFiChannelOriginalMovie original movie]] ''Megashark vs. Giant Octopus'' featured this trope in the We're Doing Science! portions. The scientists are trying to find a solution to the problem posed by, well, look at the title. This seems to involve large amounts of pouring liquids from test tubes into larger test tubes. All of these liquids are colored. What are they pouring? Why are they pouring it? Something sciency, I'm sure! Later they come up with the idea of making pheromones, so it's back to the lab! More colored chemicals are poured! Finally, success is achieved. How do they know? Because they pour two chemicals together and they change color to glowing green! Obviously, this means they have achieved shark and squid pheromones. Right?
