* DC Comics continuity has a realm called the Great Darkness, which is sometimes referred to as the Darklands or Shadowlands. To make a long story short, when God said "Let there be light," this inadvertently created something called the Great Evil Beast, a creature composed of darkness and shadow on par with God itself. While this creature did go on something of a small rampage on account of not knowing its own nature, when it got to the gates of the Silver City, it merged with God to create a sort of yin-yang creature. However, the part of reality where it had formed was left over, and is called the Great Darkness. Many heroes and villains in {{the DCU}} make use of this realm and its power to manipulate shadow and create shadow constructs.

* One of the only examples of this in the ''{{Bionicle}}'' series is Takanuva after he survives a shadow leech attack. As for everything else, Greg Farshtey seems hell-bent on [[DarkIsEvil averting this trope]].

* Nico from ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' is fond of wearing black, homemade "goth" outfits, is the daughter of supervillians, has to cut herself to use her black magic powers, and would be pretty scary...if it weren't fact the fact she starts out as a PerkyGoth OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent (albeit one who hardens as time goes on), wasn't the TeamMom, and wasn't very committed to doing good in order to counteract the mess her parents' superillianry caused in LA.

* The Shade, one-time villain of the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] Flash. He ended up as a mentor to Jack Knight, aka the hero Comicbook/{{Starman}}, so the Shade probably counts for this trope. He gained his power during a human-sacrifice-demon-summoning GoneHorriblyWrong (Or Right, depending on how you interpret the vague hints) in Victorian England that killed 104 people. Shade is probably far and away the most powerful of any of the DC characters that draw power from the Great Darkness, as not only is he ageless and immortal, but he has far more control over his shadow abilities and can directly travel between normal reality and the Great Darkness at will. Notably, he's been said to be capable of standing up to TheSpectre (also known as the physical personification of ''the Wrath of God'') and at one point, a future incarnation was able to transport Jack Knight centuries and light-years across time and space.

* The "Nega-Scott" in ScottPilgrim does look like an evil doppelganger of the title character, but he's got a much more bigger and significant purpose than that. [[spoiler: He's a manifestation of all the mistakes that Scott has made and is meant to make Scott learn from said mistakes to become a better person. As such, Nega-Scott is absorbed into Scott so that he could make a better influence on his girlfriend and his other friends.]]

* [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Nightcrawler]] is covered in indigo fur from head to toe, has pointed ears, fangs and a prehensile tail with a spade at the end, as well as the ability to teleport in a cloud of black smoke that smelled of brimstone, leading to more than a few demonic comparisons (even before that whole [[FanonDisContinuity Azazel mess]]). He is also a devout Christian, a fan of Errol Flynn movies and one of the nicest guys in the Marvel Universe.

* Subverted in Brian Bendis' ''{{Powers}}'' with [[spoiler: Queen Noire]]. Although a good guy, the source of [[spoiler: her]] powers certainly isn't. Which then [[spoiler: proceeded to kill the entire team and them some]].
