* 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.

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.

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.

* In [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Mythology]] the sun is the wheel of a golden chariot driven by Apollo (or Helios, depending on what version of the myth you're going by). Same with several other Indo-European solar deities, like the canaanite Shapash and the hindu Surya. Other mythologies have stranger suns; in both Egyptian and early Indian mythologies the sun god (Ra and Varuna respectively) the sun is a boat that travels across the ocean that is the sky, while in Myth/AztecMythology the sun is carried by winds, and requires human sacrifice for fuel.
