* 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]].

* In the polar regions of our moon there are a series of valleys knows as "The Vales of Eternal Night" where due to the low position of the sun in the sky and the surrounding mountains are believed not to have seen any daylight for over a billion years. They are actually seriously considered as a location for a permanent moon base since there is evidence that there maybe water ice from comets still there and the same geography that keeps them in perpetual darkness would also block radiation from solar storms. Power would be provided by putting solar panel farms on the near by [[EndlessDaytime "Peaks of Eternal Light"]]

* One artifact and a trio of adventures feature mind flayers trying to put out the sun. (In the second edition, mind flayers had great darkvision, could ''only'' see in darkvision, and regular light rendered them nearly blind.) A third edition book mentions that illithids hate and fear sunlight, and some of the more... ''unstable'' elder brains are deliberately working on plans to knock out the sun.

* In ''Literature/TheShatteredKingdoms'', the sun (and moon, for that matter) haven't been seen in one particular country for time immemorial. The country's inhabitants are generally WeakenedByTheLight, and look (at least in the opinion of other people) rather like corpses.
