* Franchise/TheDCU has the villain Eclipso. At first, a villain who only came out of his host's body during an eclipse, he has far surpassed that. And back in those days, the host quite sensibly tried to avoid being around when there was any kind of eclipse. You'd think that with an almanac and a modest travel budget, that wouldn't be hard, but he seemed to be really bad at it.

* In ''Series/TeenWolf'' a lunar eclipse takes away all werewolves powers in the affected area. This is a crucial plot point allowing [[spoiler: the BigBad of the season, an evil druid, to attempt to kill the ''other'' big bad of the season, an incredibly powerful alpha werewolf.]]

* The second season of ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'' concerns a race against time to complete a spell to restore the barrier that protected the town of San Lorenzo before some unspecified disaster hits during the eclipse. [[spoiler: It turns out the entire spell and prophecy that came with it were fake, and instead the spell is to summon an ancient evil ''during'' the eclipse.]]

* In the ''Series/{{Spellbinder}}'' pilot, the protagonist goes on a field trip into the woods in order to watch an eclipse. While there, the teacher tells the students about how, in the old days, people thought that an eclipse was a dragon swallowing the sun and offered human sacrifices to appease the dragon. When students laugh at the stupid primitives, the teacher points out that they kept believing it because the sacrifice worked every time. Later, after he ends up in the AfterTheEnd parallel world, he has trouble convincing a local girl to help him, so he remembers his teacher's story and plays it out, when the eclipse happens (at the same time in this world as in ours). She agrees to help him, if he returns the sun. [[BlatantLies He does]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/Ben10'', during the episode "Tough Luck", the sorcerer Hex attempts to use the Keystone of Bezel to recreate five other charms that Gwen destroyed in a previous epsiode. The ritual he performs to accomplishthis takes place during a solar eclipse, and it would've worked had Ben not turned into Wildvine and crushed the Keystone.
