* 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?

** Salvatore, it should be mentioned, wasn't making this up. Such pools of acid, along with [[ConvectionShmonvection oddly retiring lava]], were staples of the ForgottenRealms Underdark campaign setting he'd been comissioned to write for.

Electronics are not exempt from this either- high-tech machines will often be covered with pretty but seemingly pointless blinking LED lights (which old-school computer types refer to as "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blinkenlights das Blinkenlights]]"), glass pipes full of glowing energy, and meaningless screens displaying bright symbols. Modern technology, especially [[IncrediblyObviousBomb things]] that need to be [[IncrediblyObviousBug covert]], don't usually have these; with the exception of [=MP3=] players.

* "Electrons are blue". Anything with free electrons whizzing about is bright blue.

* "Electrons are blue". Anything blue" is a common joke explanation for a phenoenon: things with free electrons whizzing about is tend to be bright blue.



* 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.

* ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters: Future Perfect'' plays this for laughs - in one level Cortez and Harry Tipper are trapped in a room filling with green gas, and Tipper comments that green gas is the worst kind.
