*** Sinister's involvement arguably makes it even darker.

* The [[GiantSpider Acromantula]] [[TheHord Army]]'s attack is portrayed much more seriously than most other events in ''Fanfic/TheParselmouthOfGryffindor'', and is the only time [[spoiler:someone dies in the story so far, although only nameless RedShirts.]]

* ''Fanfic/OldWest'' was never clean of blood to begin with, but it becomes more serious by the small role played by Benjamin Hares, Grace Glossy's estranged traitor of a husband. The chapter where he subjects Grace to [[DomesticAbuse domestic violence]] is one of the darkest moments of the story. Though Grace's lover Rattlesnake Jake gives Benjamin his comeuppance ([[spoiler:a painful death through a venomous bite]]), Grace's [[HeroicBSOD sense of self-worth is destroyed]] for the following chapters, putting her previously good relationship with Jake on a strain. Also, Benjamin was brought in by [[BigBad Dufayel]] to legally claim the ownership of Grace's property. Benjamin's failure is [[RageBreakingPoint the last straw]] for Dufayel who finally decides to stop playing by the law and use more drastic measures against the heroes.

* ''Fanfic/ATriangleintheStars'': There are ultimately two of these. [[spoiler: Jasper and the Void.]] When either of these two show up, or are even mentioned, the story noticeably darkens. [[spoiler: Gabriel tried, but he barely held a candle to them, and Bill himself started off as one, but ultimately [[HeelFaceTurn passed the torch]].]]

** [[spoiler: [[BiggerBad Nightmare Eclipse/Paradox]] manages to be this for ''[[BadFuture Dark World]]'', which was ''already'' DarkerAndEdgier. When the story finally turns to her, it instantly becomes a [[WhamEpisode Wham]] ''[[WhamEpisode Arc]]'' and the stakes go simply from freeing the world from Discord's tyranny, to having to save ''the entire timeline'' from being erased from existence due to her GroundhogDayLoop plan. Add in her rather frightening FauxAffablyEvil personality and the fact she has the largest body count of any villain in the fic due to having gleefully erased the entire timeline and everyone in it several ''million'' times and she's most certainly this trope.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''HauntedMansionAndTheHatboxGhost'': while the backstories can be pretty dark, "present-day" shenanigans taking place when the cast had already left their corruptible mortal states are usually fun and games. Not so whenever the One-Eyed Black Cat is present, however.

Added DiffLines:

* In [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion canon]] and ''Fanfic/NeonMetathesisEvangelion'' alike, Bardiel fulfils that role. [[spoiler:Whereas most angel battles before are relatively easy, Bardiel requires Rei to sacrifice herself. And afterwards, the tone is somewhat darker.]]

* Chapter 22 of ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' introduces Belladonna Tyrian, who by [[WhamEpisode Chapter 23]] really shows herself as this trope. Even with it being well shown that she's not tied to or even aligned with the story's more overarching antagonists, like the [[DiabolicalMastermind Bloodline King]] or [[EldritchAbomination MissingNo]], she still becomes the first villain in the main story to kill someone on screen as part of a ploy to [[spoiler:kill the abusive father of one of her lovers without putting the rest of their lives in direct risk]]. The scenes with her are so dark that during her entire conversation with a captured Ash, Dexter, who is generally shown to be constantly snarking at everything, is [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness uncharacteristically silent]]. She also turns Pokemon's, both the original series and the fics, [[spoiler: IdenticalStranger trope on its head]], suggesting that it is in fact another trope entirely: [[spoiler: LongLostRelative]]. Notably, it's only after she appears that the fic finally reveals the Reset verse's [[TheSocialDarwinist version]] of Sabrina, and in the side stories [[NoNonsenseNemesis Capriccio]].
