** ''Fanfic/TheGhostMap''. Epidemic, character death, enforced suicide, not to mention a BiggerBad that's NotQuiteDead... yeeeah, I'd say we have a DarkerAndEdgier AlternateUniverse, here.

* While it doesn't go into full DarkFic territory, ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' is nevertheless grittier than the anime. It doesn't shy away from sad content, delves into darker territory than the anime (including the more destructive potential uses of Pokémon in war), and refuses to sugarcoat the nastier aspects of life.

That alone probably wouldn't earn it a spot on this page, but it also bears the distinction of being considerably darker than one of its main inspirations, ''Fanfic/AshesOfThePast''.

* ''[[http://www.rovl.org/vi/?p=display&e=8482 It Makes Me Happy That I'm Not Them]]'': ''{{Redwall}}'''s IronicHell.

* ''FanFic/TheUrthbloodSaga'' is in most ways darker and more mature than the official {{Redwall}} novels; the wars and violence are more graphic and disturbing, the [[AntiHero heroes]] are often of rather [[BlackAndGreyMorality questionable morality]] and are much less protected by the PlotArmor, it's generally more on the [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism cynical side]], and the good guys ([[AlternateCharacterInterpretation depending on who you view as the "good guys"]]) do not always win. It still has plenty of light, humorous and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]] moments though, and it's actually far ''more'' idealistic than the official series in regards to the [[AlwaysChaoticEvil vermin]] being able to [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch turn good]], which is one of its {{central theme}}s.

* ''{{FanFic/The List Of Secrets}}'' is famously dark and edgy, with characters ''dying'' left and right.

* ''PowerpuffGirlsDoujinshi'' and its spin-off ''FanFic/GrimTalesFromDownBelow'' are both examples of this trope done ''extraordinarily'' well, provided you can get past all the fluffy kids' cartoons going through this process in the first place.

* ''Fanfic/RequiemForALoud'' is about main protagonist Lincoln Loud suffering a terminal illness (specifically brain tumors) and is only given about two-to-three weeks left to live. That premise alone is dark by this shows standards, but what really sells it is how everybody else is taking it. While Lincoln's younger sisters [[spoiler:(sans Lisa and maybe Lucy)]] remain unaware of his condition, his older sisters are absolutely ''broken'' over the mere thought of losing their only brother. In particular, Lynn engages in self-harm and Luna becomes so depressed that she [[spoiler:[[DrowningMySorrows resorts to drinking beer]] and has casual sex with a random teen to cope with it]].
