Dragon Ball Z movie villain Broly, aka the Legendary Super Saiyan, is the only character to have a consistently green aura. This may have been an effect of his father's mind control device, but afterwards he still has a green tint to his hair and aura and all his special attacks are green. Finally, his imperfect clone "Bio-Broly" degenerates into a green blob monster.

The Loud G-Stone used by the Sol 11 Masters in GaoGaiGar FINAL glowed the same color as the normal G-Stone, but displayed an upside-down G symbol when active.

In 1987's The Curse, an adaptation of H. P. Lovecraft's "The Colour Out of Space", the colour turns out to be green. Of course, in the story, the color was something never seen on Earth before. Any special effects team that can really produce that probably HAS cut a deal with the Great Old Ones.
All the scenes taking place in the Slytherin dorms in the Harry Potter movies. Someone went crazy with green light. In this case, though, there's a valid reason: in the second to last novel, the Slytherin dorms are explicitly said to be green-lit due to the windows being below the lake's waterline.

In The Green Futures of Tycho by William Sleator, the main character (11 year old Tycho) travels repeatedly in time, constantly altering the primary timeline. The time travel device (an egg-shaped object) becomes more green-glowing as he uses it, as does the future. First just in the color of the house paint, later there's green liquid-like shapes as furniture or structural additions to the house, glowing sickly green. The older versions of the main character gets more evil (and evil looking) as the "greenage" increases thus closely adhering to this trope.

Once it gets inside the TARDIS, the usual lighting scheme is replaced with a suitably ominous green one.
The Battlestar Galactica'' episodes "Torn" and "A Measure of Salvation" feature a Cylon Baseship (which is bio-mechanical) infected by a virus.

This is a running theme for the Yozi Malfeas in Exalted. His central soul Ligier is the Green Sun, illuminating his hellish landscape. A considerable number of Malfeas's powers also manifest a green glow of some form, and any Infernal Exalt who opts to learn Malfeas's powers can join the fun.
The "Green Sun Wasting" disease (caused by Malfeas's powers) is basically radiation poisoning.
The Cryx in Iron Kingdoms are renowned for the sickly green emanations of their jacks' necrotite-fueled engines and their tendency to stalk swampy areas, to the point where the livings of Immoren call even mere will-o'-the-wisps "Cryxlights".
Occasionally played straight with those suffering from the Shadowlands Taint in Legend of the Five Rings, but more frequently inverted, as blessed green jade is pretty much the only reliable way to protect both one's soul from spiritual corruption and one's body from physical harm when dealing with the Shadowlands. It also gives off an apparently radioactive glow. This◊, for instance, is a chief holy priest of the good guys.

Also the Visorak Minifigs and the special Rhotuka spinner from the 2005 playsets.

Liberty's backgrounds are orange and dark blue, Bretonia's are purple and orange, Kusari's are turquoise, Rheinland's are orange with a little bit of green, while the Border Worlds' usually incorporate some white. The Edge Worlds, meanwhile, are barren, crime-ridden places where you get to fight the real enemy; coincidentally, all of them have gas clouds and backgrounds colored sickly green.

Radioactive material in Half-Life is florescent green liquid.
Fallout 3 has a side-mission where an atom worshiping cult is tainting water with radiation. There are multiple ways to solve the problem, but the easiest involves convincing the cult that you're the avatar of their god and that you want them to stop tainting the water. Since the avatar is said to have a bright glow, you need to get said glow, which involves getting over 800 rads (1000 is the lethal level).
Another side-mission has a character ask you to get radiation poisoning so she can study it's effects for a survival guide she's writing. The optional objective is to get critical poisoning (600), which will cause her to mention that you're actually glowing (and get you a perk... which may possibly come in the form of a benign tumor).

In Homestuck, energy with a Sickly Green Glow is associated with the powers of the First Guardians and their energy source, the Green Sun. While First Guardians are not necessarily inherently evil, there is apparently a high tendency for them to be spawned as agents in the service of Lord English, facilitating his eventual emergence into and subsequent destruction of their universe. Currently, five known entities have/had the powers and accordingly the Sickly Green Glow - Becquerel, Doc Scratch, Jack Noir, Jade Harley, and the Peregrine Mendicant; however, of the five only Scratch and Jack are evil, andhow.

The flashback that shows her actual aura is light blue rings the bell that something is definitely wrong; in truth, the green aura is that of the changeling Queen Chrysalis, who's kidnapped and replaced the real Cadence.
Yuck from Yin Yang Yo! has this color to his magic. Considering that he doesn't bathe and has a similar color to his fur could tie into the gross factor and his evilness.

Heavily irradiated glass happens to glow this color.
There is a sort of colored glass, named "uranium glass" because it is tinted with uranium salts, which was extremely popular in the beginning of the 20th century. This was the primary use of uranium before its role in nuclear applications became more prominent (uranium's existence was posited in 1789, and pure uranium was isolated in 1841; uranium minerals were well known in antiquity); ceramic glazes and glass containing small amounts of uranium oxide as a coloring agent have been found in Roman ruins dating back to the first century CE. It can be yellow to green or even blue, depending on the actual tinting composition, and is often smoky or opaque, but invariably glows neon green under UV light, including direct sunlight.
