* Traditionally, [[http://www.rpharms.com/carboys--cosmetics-and-chemists/carboys---history--colours-and-myths.asp pharmacists would have carboys of coloured liquids]] in their shop windows, so that a largely illiterate population could tell what sort of shop it was.

* In the ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlertSeries'' series, radioactive areas are recognizable by the green glow.
** It is important to note that the red alert series doesn't take itself seriously in the slightest.

glow. Though while the red alert series doesn't take itself seriously in first game was serious and grim, the slightest.other two are anything but.
** In ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals'', anthrax comes, in increasing lethality, as green, blue and pink clouds of death. Nuclear radiation, on the other hand, is orange. It still gets reflected by the Chinese Nuke Cannon, which may say "Green... is good." in reference to the ''Red Alert'' series' green radiation.

* As far as electronics go, it's common for gaming PCs and peripherals to have colorful lighting. Custom water-cooling setups can use colored water in the tubes.

* 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.
