* ''VideoGame/WolfensteinIITheNewColossus'': Jessica Valiant from the ''Freedom Chronicles'' expansion dresses all in black and looks like more like a Franchise/JamesBond villainess than a NaziHunter. Nevertheless, she's one of the good guys.

*** Also from ''Pokémon Sun and Moon'', and also in ''VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon'' is the first Dark-type specialist in a Pokémon League role who isn't an Elite Four member. [[spoiler:He is Nanu, and he is [[SuperCop the sheriff who singlehandedly is responsible for why Team Skull has not run wild all over Alola]], making him one of the biggest forces of good in his region.]]

* [[PowerOfTheVoid Void Light]] in ''VideoGames/{{Destiny}}'' gets a bit of this treatment. While it comes from the Traveler the sames as [[ShockAndAwe Arc]] and [[PlayingWithFire Solar Light]], it's powers include such things as VampiricDraining, CastingAShadow, and creating ''miniature black holes''. In-game lore notes that some people compare [[BlackMage Voidwalker Warlocks]] to Hive Wizards, and Cayde says that the reason [[ArcherArchetype Nightstalker Hunters]] are so rare is because the Void ''scares'' a lot of hunters away from that path. Seems to be averted with [[BarrierWarrior Defender]] and [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe Sentinel Titans]], whose use of Void includes force-fields and Captain America style shields, and don't seem to get the same in-universe bias that Voidwalkers and Nightsalkers suffer from.

* ''Franchise/SilentHill's'' Alessa Gillespie is either ChaoticGood or ChaoticNeutral, depending on whether you assume that her motivations are to prevent the [[spoiler: birth of some sort of demon goddess and protect the world]], or just to [[spoiler: end her own suffering]], but either way, she is ''absolutely freaking terrifying'' and she is preventing the end of the world.

* ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfMordor'' and its sequel ''[[VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfWar ShadowOfWar]]'' explores this concept a lot.
** The lead protagonist is Talion, a Gondorian ranger that was revived by a wraith and given supernatural powers that he uses against Sauron and his minions. He becomes even more of this trope in the second game when [[spoiler:he becomes a ''Nazgul'' himself, albeit one still heroic that decides to stand his ground in Mordor, to prevent Sauron from uniting his forces and unleashing his invasion of Middle-earth, which Talion succeeds for many, many decades]].
** [[spoiler:Celebrimbor]], the wraith that provides Talion with his powers has a genuinely freaky and decayed appearance as you would expect for a undead ghost, but he is also well-intentioned and motivated to stop the Dark Lord too, even if he is ruthlessly pragmatic about it. Ironically, his nickname in-universe is the "Bright Lord". [[spoiler:However there are hints that he is not as noble as he lets out to be, which is confirmed by the second game that he is just as deceptive and tyrannical as Sauron, making him a case of LightIsNotGood instead]].
** Despite being a very sinister figure who threatens the protagonists at the very start of the second game, [[spoiler:Shelob herself]] turns out to be this trope instead. [[spoiler:Everything she does is to prevent from a terrible future from coming to pass, namely Celebrimbor enslaving Sauron instead of destroying him and he would have successfully conquered Middle-Earth, which Talion manages to prevent by refusing to follow Celebrimbor anymore. In addition, Shelob provides helpful advice to the heroes and never turns on them despite their uneasy alliance. And finally, she is the one to tell Talion that to preserve the balance of power in the Middle-Earth, Sauron must be contained to Mordor at all costs]].

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' introduces the Dark Knight job in the ''Heavensward'' expansion, wherein the PlayerCharacter, a Warrior of Light, harnesses the power of darkness to draw enemies to them and protect their allies. The main character of the Dark Knight questline, Fray, is an AntiHero who protects Ishgard's poor and downtrodden from Temple Knights and other members of the upper classes that abuse their power.

* The ''VideoGame/NexusWar'' series has the death-god Hashaa, who is a morally neutral deity that champions free will and opposes both angels and demons. Her efforts in the game are mainly spent ferrying souls off the battlefield to prevent DesecratingTheDead and routing the souls of the slain in and out of the [[RevolvingDoorAfterlife void]]. Being aligned with neither good nor evil means that both are possible choices; playing as a Hashaa cultist grants lots of powers that are useful for killing, but that killing doesn't have to be indiscriminate and some of her followers are downright saintly.

*** The ''Sword of Seals'' (''FE 6'') game also uses this trope, as you can recruit ''three'' dark magic users: two shamans (Ray and Sophia, the first one being cynical but not evil and the other being a ShrinkingViolet) and a Druid (Niime, a HermitGuru [[spoiler: and Canas's mother]]).

*** Sanguine, the Daedric Prince of of [[FunPersonified Debauchery]] and [[TheHedonist Hedonism]], plays with it. Indeed, he is a Daedric Prince and his sphere includes various sins, vices, and the darker natures of man, but he isn't nearly as evil as some would suggest. He is very rarely even malevolent. His quests usually don't involve killing things, causing lasting harm, or spreading suffering in any way, only annoying folks. To put it bluntly, Sanguine is basically a demonic frat boy. On the other hand, his personal artifact, Sanguine's Rose, is one of the more dangerous Daedric artifacts, since it summons a random lesser Daedra that is not under the summoner's control. Martin Septim's reaction to the Rose in ''Oblivion'' implies that toying around with it in his youth got a bunch of his friends killed and soured him on Daedra worship forever.
