A gigantic nuclear furnace, Where hydrogen is built into helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees
But here on Earth there'd be no life, Without the light it gives.
The sun's not simply made out of gas, no, no, no
The sun is a quagmire. It's not made of fire.
Forget what you've been told in the past.
(Plasma!) Electrons are free. (Plasma!) A fourth state of matter.
Not gas, not liquid, not solid, Ooh!
(Plasma!) Forget that song. (Plasma!) They got it wrong.

This page is not about the color of pinkish-purple. Nor is it about those small, charming varieties of flowers that are known to attract butterflies. Nor is it about unintelligible webcomics. Or bloodstone.

Okay, okay, enough beating around the bush. This index is for tropes regarding The Sun.
It chases away the night. It has been the focus of religious worship on every continent. It provides nearly every living thing on Earth with the energy it needs to survive. It is responsible for the very existence of our planet. It is Sol, The Sun, our mother star. And, naturally, it features prominently in the stories told by virtually every culture on earth. Vampires fear it. Heroes ride into it (and occasionally blow it up). When killing something with fire simply isn't enough, what do you do? Hurl It into the Sun!
