Mighty is a motion picture slang term used on set for a lighting fixture with a 2000 watt output and no focusing lens (Not to be confused with the Junior, which has a fresnel lens). Sometimes also known as a Blonde.

The Mighty is often used in a frog light set up or in other situations where the gaffer is beaming the light through diffusion and therefore does not require the focusing power of the fresnel.

The Mighty is a big brother to the 1000 watt Mickey light. On set the similar names can be told apart by remembering that Mighty Mouse can kick Mickey Mouse's ass.
