** Because of [[PaintingTheFrostOnWindows the hands-on nature]] of... well, nature in ''Friendship is Magic'', some fans have grossly underestimated the threat posed by this scheme. WordOfGod has made clear, however, that this ''would'' cause [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the death of every living thing in Equestria]], by starvation if nothing else. It remains unclear whether Nightmare Moon herself was aware of this; preventing the sun from ever rising again may have been an attempt to force the ponies to appreciate the night ([[GreenEyedMonster and, by extension, her]]), or perhaps her bitterness at their [[DarkIsNotEvil misguided]] [[DarkIsEvil fear of the night]] was such that her ultimate goal was to [[OmnicidalManiac exterminate them all]] (and maybe even [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum herself along with them]]).

[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E26TheCutieRemarkPart2 The season 5 finale]], however, shows that things actually turn out mostly okay under her eternal night, though still inferior to canon!Equestria.

* This is the sign for the Elder Evil (from the book of the same name) Father Llymic, who becomes slowed (and eventually frozen over) when the sun is shining. In the final battle with the monster, the sun has completely gone out, allowing him to burst free of his icy prison and try to wreak havoc over the entire world.
* In Palladium's game ''Nightbane'', the Day of Darkness - 24 full hours of unnatural darkness (no stars, just a solid sheet of darkness across the sky) - heralded the weakening of the barrier between our world and the Nightlands, allowing the Nightlords and their minions easy access to our world.
* Near the end of ''TabletopGames/{{Exalted}}'''s "Return of the Scarlet Empress", the Ebon Dragon causes an eternal night by [[spoiler:assassinating the Unconquered Sun]]. [[spoiler:Unusually, this backfires on the villain by distributing the Unconquered Sun's nigh-infinite power directly to the Exalted themselves.]]
* [[Warhammer40000 Night Lords]] reportedly use this as part of "scare everyone to death before fighting even starts" shtick.

* In Warhammer 40,000 universe several planets are described to have this kind of thing going on for forever. Nostramo and Deliverance have this going on permanently and planet wide because of pollution and general location, while Adumbria and Mordian are tidally locked with the star, meaning that half of the planet is bathed in perpetual darkness and the other half burnt to a cinder by the glaring sun.
