Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/YokusIslandExpress'', those attacked by the God Slayer have distinct green slash marks wherever they've been wounded. Only defeating the God Slayer will cause those wounds to stop glowing and allow the victim to recover.


* The Loud G-Stone used by the Sol 11 Masters in ''Anime/GaoGaiGar FINAL'' glowed the same color as the normal G-Stone, but displayed an upside-down G symbol when active. But then, ''real'' power in ''GGG'' was orange (THE POWER, Genesic Aura), though it was always the G-Stone that did the job in the end, thanks to its [[MetaphysicalFuel theoretically infinite energy output]].
* In ''Manga/ShamanKing'', DeadlyDoctor Faust VIII's mana is a sickly yellow-green color. Later subverted because for Faust, [[strike:defeat]] [[DefeatMeansFriendship victory means friendship]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters2019'': The Oxygen Destroyer gives off a sickly green light when it explodes. [[spoiler:All it accomplishes is to put Godzilla out of the fight and give Ghidorah unchallenged control over the Titans.]]


According to the principles of TechnicolorScience, radiation and all things [[ILoveNuclearPower nuclear]] have a green glow, although this is seldom the case in RealLife (Cherenkov radiation in the pools of nuclear reactors is ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cherenkov_radiation blue]]'', radioactive cesium chloride fluoresces faintly blue, and hot radioactives are [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Plutonium_pellet.jpg orange]]).

Maybe the trope originated with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radium_dials radium-dial watches]], or perhaps bioluminescence (usually green), or perhaps just the odd pale green that corpses turn (and very faintly glow).

Maybe the trope originated with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radium_dials radium-dial watches]], or in which radium excited a different phosphorescent compound, which did glow green. Or perhaps bioluminescence (usually green), or perhaps just the odd pale green that corpses turn (and very faintly glow).

Added DiffLines:

* If you ever see the sky develop a yellowish-greenish tint, you should find shelter ASAP. It's a warning sign that a severe thunderstorm (and possibly a tornado) is on its way.

* ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidII'' When Morgana finally has the trident in her possession, it turns from sunlight gold to sickly green. Bizarrely enough, the trident ''didn't'' change color when Ursula had it in the original film (just [[LightIsNotGood glowed with an even brighter yellow]]).

Added DiffLines:

* Villainous space pirate Kagato from ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' can create a sickly green LaserBlade as well as matching colored KiAttacks, all in contrast to the more heroic Ryoko's orange equivalents. When re-imagined in spin-off series ''Anime/TenchiUniverse'' his powers are squarely in RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver territory, although he now has green hair.


Added DiffLines:

* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/GodzillaTheSeries''. This version of Godzilla has a light green atomic heat ray, as opposed to his classic sky blue one. However while this Godzilla is a HorrifyingHero both in and out of universe , he is still squarely heroic. The actually villainous Cyber Godzilla has the original blue to contrast .

* The [[{{MacGuffin}} tupua]] from ''WesternAnimation/ArcherDangerIsland'' is a legendary idol rumoured to carry a powerful curse that causes those to touch it to waste away and die. It turns out to be made of highly radioactive uranium. Naturally, it emits an ominous green glow once the characters open the final barriers sealing it away.
