* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Winter is coming, and with it the days grow shorter. There is an in-universe FairyTale of a Long Night that lasted a generation the last time the White Walkers invaded Westeros. Stannis mentions it by name in "Second Sons" when discussing Melisandre's prophecies with Davos.

* The ''Dawnguard'' DLC for ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' has a [[BigBad Vampire Lord]] seeking to blot out the sun through the use an Elder Scroll. You eventually gain the tools to do this yourself, [[spoiler:and learn it isn't quite as permanent as advertised, though easy enough to repeat on a daily basis]].

In addition to the vampire hunters opposing the Big Bad's scheme, he is also opposed by some ''vampires'', at least one not so much due to any moral or ethical concern as that she judges the end result of the scheme to be less 'eternal vampiric reign' and more 'mortals get ''really'' pissed off and focus on killing off every vampire they can find until day returns'.

** 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 fear]] of [[TheSacredDarkness 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, [[GodDoesNotOwnThisWorld may have refuted this]] by having the BadFuture where she ruled [[NoEndorHolocaust show no signs of such apocalypse]] and actually look the least worst of of the {{Alternate Timeline}}s visited.

* In N. K. Jemisin's ''Literature/TheFifthSeason'', the continent-shattering earthquake at the beginning of the book opens a volcanic rift continually pouring out enough ash to blot out the sun for thousands of years, kicking off an EndlessWinter.

** It goes much deeper than that: Nostramo, the homeworld of the Night Lords was a world of perpetual darkness as a result of EXTREME amounts of pollution turning the sky black. In fact, one of the reasons for Nostramo's eventual rebellion was that when the Emperor arrived, he showed the Nostramans that there was light in the galaxy they would never get to see.

* In ''The Shattered World'', the FloatingContinent of Xoth is almost entirely shielded from the sun's rays by another, nameless fragment. This makes it an ideal shelter for the light-sensitive Cthons and their equally-averse cacodemon minions. [[spoiler: At least until the sequel, ''The Burning Realm'', in which Kan Konar destroys the shielding fragment's Runestone and it drifts sideways, exposing Xoth to the light.]]

* The Darkening in ''Literature/CompanionsCodex'': a powerful spell taught to Tsabrak Xorlarrin by Lolth herself, it plunges the sky over the entire Silver Marches into artificial darkness. It serves as intimidation tactic aswell as relieves the invading drow of their weakness to bright sunlight.
