* In the ''{{Manga/Nightschool}}'', there are demons, vampires, witches, and people with horns spikes and wings...and then you meet GenkiGirl Rochelle, the cheerful Night keeper Sara, and Madam Chen, who just wants her coffee. In fact, most vampires are harmless pretty boys (until they become Rippers)

* Kukuri in ''Anime/MahoujinGuruGuru'' dresses in black robes, carries a staff with an eye on it, and is described as a "Dark Elemental." Her magic involves demon-summoning and is considered dark magic. However, while possessing many traits of the BlackMagicianGirl, Kukuri's personality is closer to that of the WhiteMagicianGirl. There is also a Dark Society of black magic practitioners who are allies of the heroes against the demon lord Giri.

* In ''Anime/DeathParade'', [[TheNameless The Black Haired Woman]] is the only main character whose palette is dark, with [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette black hair]], [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]], and a mostly black outfit. Yet she's easily the most [[NaiveNewcomer innocent]] character, as well as one of the most emphatic and pleasant. The [[{{Psychopomp}} arbiters]], by contrast, [[LackOfEmpathy mostly lack empathy and complex emotions]], yet have [[LightIsNotGood bright, bubbly palettes]].

*** Giratina is actually a representation of antimatter in the same way that Palkia and Dialga are time and space respectively. He's most likely simply a ghost not because he is in any form 'dead' so much as alive in a sense somehow opposite to normal Pokémon.

* In ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' (which always plays DarkIsEvil straight with its [[BigBad Big Bad's]]), Hotaru may be Sailor Saturn, the Soldier of Destruction, but she isn't evil. In fact, she's very shy and sweet, and even though she's possessed when we first meet her, it's not her fault at all.

** After becoming Hell Kaiser and wearing a black coat that replaces his white one from Duel Academia, people close to Kaiser initially believe that he was controlled by some darkness that made him evil. However, he made it clear that he was not controlled by anything nor anyone and became the way he was through his own experience. Hell Kaiser wasn't evil, just a power-hungry {{Jerkass}} who used questionable methods to make his duels more intense. His forbidden cards, the Cyberdark cards, aren't evil either. They were forbidden and locked away because they are dangerous for their user, not because they are evil. This is made clear in season 4, where Sho receives the Cyberdark cards among others and is perfectly fine using them without any side effects.

*** [[spoiler:Although, it turns out much later that Odd-Eyes Dragon and Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon used to be evil.]]

* Subverted in ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' with Mayo Mitama. She really is as evil as she looks, but everyone else simply [[WrongGenreSavvy assumes that she's misunderstood]]. Basically, she takes full advantage of those savvy in this trope.

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', Isanami's DefenceMechanismSuperpower is basically holy darkness [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope ...until Izanami takes over]], at which point it's only holy in the sense of being related to a god, not one that is nice or good by any strain of the imagination.]]
