* ''VideoGame/{{Smite}}'' features [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Egyptian Sun God, Ra]], whose skills revolve around sunlight that can heal and can also burn... OK, it mostly burns. Later on, they also added the legendary Chinese archer and ex-immortal Hou Yi, who is protected with the sun that he can't be hit with critical hits a lot, and can also drop not just one, but ''nine'' suns and all of its power to an area. Not content with that, they then bring in one of Ra's fellow Sun deity Khepri, the scarab that rolls the sun with him; and there's also the Norse Sun Goddess Sol.

They THEN added Amaterasu as a "buff/support/fighter" character. Interestingly they made Amaterasu a Samurai as opposed to her more traditional magical portrayal.

* In JohnMilton's ''Literature/ParadiseLost'', {{Satan}} addresses the Sun to speak of its power -- and rages that it reminds him of what he lost.

* In ''TheBookOfTheNewSun,'' The Conciliator is at the same time a [[CrystalDragonJesus man]] and the White Fountain which will restore the dying Sun and wreck continents. Or perhaps that's just what the Powers Above the Stage need him to believe.

* {{Superman}}, like all Kryptonians, gains superpowers from his ability to absorb sunlight. A yellow sun happens to be a ''mediocre'' power source for him: under a blue sun, all of his powers get hypercharged and he gains entirely new ones, to boot! Under a Pulsar or Quasar, he can gain [[NighOmnipotent "power beyond imagination."]]

* In ''Literature/Animorphs,'' [[PuppeteerParasite Yeerks]] need to leave their host bodies every three days to absorb Kandrona rays or they die. The Kandrona is actually the name of their home world's sun, which they regard with religious significance; however, the "Kandronas" used off-world are just devices that imitate its energy.

** The Phoenix Force, described as "fire and life incarnate", literally ''[[ComicBook/TheDarkPhoenixSaga eats]]'' suns to replenish itself. In this instance, the trope established just [[OurGodsAreDifferent how very powerful]] it was. [[note]]In times of extreme frailty, such as during ''Endsong'', the Phoenix Force has tried to 'feed on' Cyclops.[[/note]]

* Starfire, mostly known from the TeenTitans, comes from another alien species that gets it powers from the sun. Which is why it ''totally'' makes sense for her to wear a {{Stripperific}} outfit and have scenes of [[{{Fanservice}} sunbathing nude]].

* In ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' [=WarGreymon=]'s most powerful attack consists in throwing a sun. He even has the image of a sun on his wings, although he's officially a [[PlayingWithFire fire-elemental]]. Wizardmon is also thought to have sun-powers.
** [=ShineGreymon=] from ''Anime/DigimonSavers'', however, fits this trope perfectly.

* In The backstory of ''VideoGame/{{Assassins Creed|I}}'' [[spoiler: Earth was hit by a giant solar flare, causing almost all of the world's population to be incinerated. Averted in ''VideoGame/{{Assassins Creed III}}'', where [[HeroicSacrifice Desmond saves the world from the second solar flare, costing him his life.]] (In the process, setting Juno free.)]]
