* In ''Literature/PugsOfTheFrozenNorth'', one can be seen in the sky from time to time. However, during a True Winter, it can get so cold that the lights freeze and fall to the earth.

* The Winter Interior in ''VideoGame/TomodachiLife'' looks like a nightly frozen fjord, and features, along every other possible arctic cliché, shimmering auroras. ''Indoors''.

An aurora borealis - or australis in the Southern hemisphere - is a phenomenon occuring near the poles of the Earth when particles coming from the sun (known as the solar wind) gets aspired by the planet's magnetic field - whose poles are conveniently almost at the same place as the Earth's rotation poles. This creates magnificient and breathtaking light-shows that colour and illuminate the polar skies. Auroras are predominantly green, but they have come in other colours as well.

They, as such, have been consistently associated with frigid environments and became a staple background element in SlippySlideyIceWorld settings, regardless of their geographical location. They, of course, are there mostly for SceneryPorn purposes, although they do convey the chilly feeling of their polar origins quite well.

Do note that these aurora-filled SlippySlideyIceWorld settings also mostly take place at night, in a rather convenient way. Else, how could we see them?

!!Examples:

[[AC:VideoGames]]

* In ''VideoGame/AliceMadnessReturns'', the [[TheManInTheMoon moon]] in the skies above the glacial Tundraful smokes a cigarette in a long-holder, and the resulting smoke results in green auroras lacing through the night sky.
* A big offender of misplacing northern lights would be the ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' series: in both ''City Folk'' and ''New Leaf'', auroras can appears several times during the cold winters, even though if the summer is to be believed, the town's climate is ''nowhere'' near polar.
* Somehow, auroras are seen above the top of Mount Fimbulventr from in ''VideoGame/Bayonetta2''. Granted, the area is cold, if the blizzard occuring outside is to be believed, but the TravelMontage at the beginning of the game reveals that Mount Fimbulventr is located somewhere in ''Kazakhstan''. Then again, they add an undeniable and fitting mystical flair to the FinalBoss arena.
* In ''VideoGame/CrashBash'', the Polar Panic stage is set on a flat iceberg on the night sea, with auroras in the sky.
* Commonly used in the ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' series:
** Frozen Hillside, the icy racetrack from ''VideoGame/KirbyAirRide'', has green, blue and pink auroras high up in the purple skies.
** In ''VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn'', the path to the Snow Land boss fight is revealed by unknitting a snowman on the map, and its yarn is used to knit a white aurora that decorates the night sky.
** ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamland'' heavily features northern lights in the icy White Wafers. They are bright enought to occur in broad daylight and are very colourful (a mix of red, violet, green and blue). One of the level features them so prominently that its music track is actually named "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7v-fNrzhms Aurora Area]]".
** The sky of the frigid Planet Frostak in ''VideoGame/KirbyStarAllies'' is almost completely covered in multicoloured auroras.
* Chillydip Cove in ''VideoGame/TheLegendaryStarfy'' takes place in a freezing cove (which is somehow right next to hot springs) inhabited by penguins, and its night sky is laced with auroras in several levels.
*The northern lights can be seen when visiting Forochel at night in ''VideoGame/TheLordOfTheRingsOnline''. Justified in that it's a polar landscape and the northernmost region on the map.
* Justified in the Sim Store exclusive town of ''Aurora Skies'' in ''VideoGame/TheSims3'', as it is based on an icelandic township, and as such does feature auroras at nighttime. After all, it's all in the name.
* The Oceanora Deep-Sea Cruise in the ''VideoGame/StreetpassMiiPlaza'' game ''Ultimate Angler'' lies in frosty waters filled with various iceberg, near the coasts of the Oceanora Island (which features various biomes including a ''tropical beach''). This fishing spot takes place during nighttime and auroras shimmer in the dark skies, completing the polar atmosphere.
* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'':
** The ''Double Dash!!'' racetrack Sherbet Land has been given, among many other visual improvements, a nightime aurora-laced sky in its ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'' appearance. Ironically, Ice Ice Outpost, which does take place in a polar environment, has no auroras in its sky since the race takes place during daytime.
** Most levels in the [[SlippySlideyIceWorld Frosted Glacier]] in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU'' feature exquisite, multicolored northern lights in their nighty skies. Granted, the Frosted Glacier is one of the northernmost locations on the map, but it is on the same longitude than [[ShiftingSandLand Layer-Cake Desert]] and Peach's Castle, and therefore most certainly not polar. Videogame geography at its best.
** In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'', the ''entire [[HailfirePeaks Freezeflame Galaxy]]'' is surrounded by a massive green aurora borealis, which can even be seen from the fiery planets of the galaxy.
** The aptly-named Snowball Park in ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'' has green auroras in its night sky as well.
* The Summit stage, which is the Ice Climbers' home stage in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros: Brawl]]'', is (at the start of the fight at least) located on top of a frozen moutain bathed in the shimmering lights of auroras borealis.
