* The mascot for Raisin Bran. Two scoops of raisins!
* This [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcUO-h_o09Q old Coca-Cola commercial]].

* In ''Manga/SoulEater'', the sun has a face with a spike-like nose, a SlasherSmile, and is [[EvilLaugh always laughing]]. Unless it's falling asleep and snoring at sunset. [[WeirdMoon The moon isn't any better]].

* ''Film/TwoThousandTwelve'': Charlie Frost's animation shows a sun emitting extreme amounts of radiation, represented by the sun wearing a red headband and firing bullets from a machine gun, the bullets representing neutrinos, then smoking a joint.

* ''Film/TwoThousandTwelve'': Charlie Frost's animation shows ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' has a sun emitting extreme amounts slightly modified version of radiation, represented by the sun wearing one in [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Mythology]]: instead of being a red headband and firing bullets from wheel of Apollo's chariot it's a machine gun, the bullets representing neutrinos, then smoking a joint.roughly house-sized sphere.



* The miniature sun in ''Film/SpiderMan2'' shows no effects of radiant heat, radiation, or gravity on those nearby, having no effect on physical matter when handled by a set of metal arms or when idly floating in an unshielded "containment field". There's no way to estimate mass or density. Is the sun's own gravity holding it together, and is that gravity coming from its mass despite its size, as its miniatured molecules simulate macro-scale gravity while still allowing thermonuclear fusion of hydrogen into helium at its core to take place, in a safe and cozy environment, without killing everyone nearby?

* ''Series/{{Teletubbies}}'' has an [[UncannyValley absolutely terrifying]] [[TheFaceOfTheSun baby-faced]] sun. The actual reason for the sun being that way is that it represents the toddlers and babies who are watching the program.
* On ''Series/BearInTheBigBlueHouse'', the sun was Bear's good friend, Ray, who greeted him in the morning and sometimes sang the "Good Morning" song with him. He was voiced by Geoffrey Holder, using the deep voice that made him well known for [=7Up=] commercials in the 70s and 80s.



** In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3,'' the sun is an enemy that can be killed with a Koopa Shell.
** ''VideoGame/WarioLand3'' has a similar enemy that ''can't'' be killed who spits out fireballs.
** And in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'', the final boss battle against [[BigBad Bowser]] takes place inside a ''hollow'' sun.

* A cartoonish sun is found in ''VideoGame/LocoRoco'' series. It has a face.



* In ''Webcomic/OurLittleAdventure'', the sun and moon have faces and occasionally make quips about what's going on down at ground level. They transform into one another at dawn and dusk rather than rising or setting.
* The sun in ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily'' has a face and sometimes talks to the other characters in the strip. Unfortunately, it's also obliviously cheerful, friendly, and completely unaware of what happens if you share ''too'' much solar energy with Earth (that is, reducing every living thing on the planet to cinders).



* ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'': The sun has the face of a jack-o-lantern.
* ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' has a slightly modified version of the one in [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Mythology]]: instead of being a wheel of Apollo's chariot it's a roughly house-sized sphere.



* The sun from ''WesternAnimation/RockADoodle'' for some reason changes from a realistic Sun when seen from outer space, to an anthropomorphic sun when seen from Chanticleer's farm. And the sun (whose rising and setting is constantly controlled by Chanticleer) will occasionally go against his rules and rise on its own.



* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'', like other {{Animate Inanimate Object}}s, the sun is a minor character who spends most of its time in the sky smiling all the time (unless something of notice comes near him). He can also travel around the world at high speeds and sleeps when night comes. He also gets {{moon|ing}}ed by the equally animated moon, who has arms, legs, and visible buttocks.



* On ''WesternAnimation/NiHaoKaiLan'', the sun was Mr. Sun, a cute little thing that sometimes emitted "sun fuzzies" that could tickle or form props.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'' had a quick gag with Chowder exclaiming "The sun is rising!" [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rTla7q8Qyk Cut to]] a sun-shaped monster emerging from a crevice in the earth, with knights scrambling to attack it, only for the Sun-monster to scare them off with flame-breath.



* One planet seen in 'WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' revolves around a sun with a face which emits a never-ending scream. The sun's screaming can be heard from the planet's surface for the entirety of its' daytime period.

The sun is a [[Music/TheyMightBeGiants miasma of incandescent plasma]]. [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Or possibly a chariot wheel,]] a very large flashlight, or a two-dimensional painting on the cosmic backdrop that is the sky. Forget everything you know about Mr. Sun[[note]]And in several languages -- and in JRRTolkien's Middle-earth -- it's Mrs. Sun, thank you very much. Let's hope he/she/it isn't offended.[[/note]] because, in Fiction Land, it's all wrong.

* A crowd of thousands on October 13, 1917 in a field outside Fátima, Portugal was reported in the newspapers to have seen the sun behaving strangely for ten minutes: After hours of heavy rain, the sun emerged from clouds as an opaque, spinning disk or a "firewheel," looking duller than normal, which cast multicolored lights across the landscape and clouds. Then it careened toward earth in a zigzag pattern, radiating heat and frightening the observers. The faithful associated this phenomenon with the apparitions of the Virgin Mary that had been occurring in Fátima that year; three children had been meeting her in the field on the 13th day of the month for six months. Not all witnesses reported seeing the sun dance; some only saw the radiant colors. Some believers saw nothing unusual; some unbelievers saw the colors and/or the whirling "sun", including secular/atheist reporters who wrote it up as front-page news. Note: seeing the sun move in the sky after staring at it is a well-known effect of sungazing. Do not stare into the sun without eye protection, and preferably not even then.

* A crowd of thousands on October 13, 1917 in a field outside Fátima, Portugal was reported in the newspapers to have seen the sun behaving strangely for ten minutes: strangely. They had gathered because they believed a child prophet who claimed they would see something miraculous. After hours of heavy rain, looking into the sky for some time, observers saw the sun emerged from clouds as an opaque, spinning disk or a "firewheel," looking duller than normal, which cast multicolored lights across moving all over the landscape and clouds. Then it careened toward earth in a zigzag pattern, radiating heat and frightening the observers. The faithful associated this phenomenon place. Witnesses had different experiences, with the apparitions of the Virgin Mary that had been occurring in Fátima that year; three children had been meeting her in the field on the 13th day of the month for six months. Not all witnesses reported no two seeing the sun dance; some only saw move in the radiant colors. Some believers saw nothing unusual; some unbelievers saw exact same way, and the colors and/or sun's movement was not observed anywhere else in the whirling "sun", including secular/atheist reporters who wrote it up as front-page news.world.

* Creator/RichardBrautigan's fantasy novel ''In Watermelon Sugar'' is set possibly on a post-apocalyptic Earth where the sun shines a different color every day, but always the same color on the same day; Monday is always red, Tuesday is always golden, and so on. Even the community elders and leaders don't know why this is, but they've coordinated the watermelon crops to grow in similar colors. Seeds gathered from, say, a gray watermelon, on Wednesday (when the sun is gray), then planted on another Wednesday, will grow more gray watermelons.

* The sun in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' is the same as the stars, only much bigger: a hole in reality to Aetherius. It shares a name with the God of Magic, because ([[UnreliableNarrator so the myths say, anyway]]) it was his escape from reality that created it.

* The sun in In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' is the same as the stars, only much bigger: series, The sun is, according to most creation myths, a hole punctured in reality to Aetherius. It shares a name with by Magnus, the God of Magic, because ([[UnreliableNarrator so the myths say, anyway]]) it was his escape when he escaped from reality that created it.the mortal plane into Aetherius in order to avoid sacrificing a large portion of his power (and thus, his immortality) like the Aedra in order to create the mortal world. The stars were similarly punctured by his followers, the Magna-Ge. Through the sun and stars flows in magic from Aetherius, visible as nebulae in the night sky.

* In ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'', several weird suns can be found.
** In the Umbra's Aetherial Realm, travelers can visit the sun, which is ruled by the celestine Hyperion and populated by solar spirits. The umbral sun is solid and habitable, and travelers can ride the solar winds it emits to other parts of the Aetherial Realm.
** In Malfeas, the Umbral nerve center of the Wyrm, the desert ruled by the Nameless Angel of Despair has a huge black sun hanging overhead.
** One portent of the Apocalypse is the appearance of Anthelios, a huge red "anti-sun" that can be seen in the skies of both the Umbra and the physical world.
