* ''Anime/YuGiOh'':
** The original ''Anime/YuGiOh'' had Seto Kaiba dressed in white with his Light-type {{Mon}}s, the Blue Eyes White Dragon, pitted against a leather-clad spirit named Dark Yugi and his Dark Magician (with the rest of their decks tending to match the Light and Dark themes of their signature monsters). However, Kaiba was the {{Jerkass}} and Yami Yugi barely hit AntiHero. (Of course, Kaiba had a lot of Dark monsters too, and many were fiendish creatures, if not actual Fiends.)
*** Subverted in the Millenium Arc when it turns out that the Blue Eyes White Dragon was GoodAllAlong, but highly aggressive and destructive. LightIsGood, but in this case you don't want to be near it.

** Two of the seasonal {{Big Bad}}s in the original series, [[EnfanteTerrible Noah]] and [[DarkMessiah Dartz]], were also light-aligned. Noah had a six-winged angel, Shinato, with regal robes and a halo as his deck master, who's name in Japan is Shinato, King of Heaven, and merges with it temporarily, and Dartz's whole deck was light-themed, meant to be around the Orichalchos.
** Moving to ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', the driving force behind the first season were the [[PhysicalGod Sacred Beasts]], sentient cards of incredible power which were ObviouslyEvil. (They were called Demon Emperors in the original version.) One of them, Hamon, Lord of Striking Thunder, is a Light-Attribute Monster.

** In ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'', we have Rex Godwin, our heroic mentor to the TheChosenOne(s), but also has some sort of counter-agenda planned. And then there's Divine, resident JerkAss (and a downright bastard).
** Let's not forget Lucciano, Placido, and Jose, who wear white ropes and cloaks, and whose Machine Emperors tend to be brightly coloured. [[spoiler: Their fused form, Aporia, also counts, clad in all white and having an Ace monster that's white and described as a god.]] Z-One also qualifies, taking the form of a white, armored magatama, and using a deck based on the Sephirot.
** This carries over to the cards themselves - the two cards linked on the page for EldritchAbomination are both Light-type.



** In ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'', Eliphas is the angelic, godlike ruler of the Astral World and the enemy of the Barian World, but has become so arrogantly dedicated to Law that he fails to see that his goals are almost identical to that of his genocidal enemies. In addition, some fans think that Yuma's ability to use Shining Draw in Zexal Mode pushes the limits of fair play, but you can excuse him, seeing as the villains cheat worse. Eliphas, however, you cannot. His godlike powers and authority over the Astral World let him use the Shining Draw ability any time he wants (the equivalent of magical deck-stacking, turning the ability into blatant cheating), as opposed to Yuma, who can use it at most twice per duel, and only in Zexal Mode. Eliphas is also might have resorted to MindRape on Yuma and Astral and quite possibly was willing to destroy the Earth if he had not been bested.
* ''DGrayMan'': Despite being demons, [[spoiler: Level 4 Akuma]] most closely resemble angels, complete with glowing white halos and wings. The Noah themselves avert this trope by gaining white skin when not in "horrifying evil" mode.

* All members of the Holy Knights from Anime/TheSevenDeadlySins with the exception of the titular sins have shown themselves to be anything but holy. In one episode alone, one knight insulted and then shut down a town's livelihood for no other reason than a thought passing through his head. A later episode showed a group of knights having no trouble kidnapping a little girl for blackmail material against her father, [[spoiler: and killing said father when the poison he gave Meliodas failed to kill him]] and raining acid on the town to eliminate a target.

* One of the major themes of the manga ''AngelSanctuary''. GodIsEvil, and many of the angels are fanatical, murderous, lunatics. And with which group does the hero side? [[DarkIsNotEvil The demons.]]

* In ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'', Kuze has a cybernetic body with white skin and hair, and usually dresses completely in white. His followers see him as a [[MessianicArchetype savior]], but he's also Japans most dangerous top terrorist. [[spoiler:Slightly subverted, as it later turns out that he's actually the most noble and kind character in the entire franchise, even though he has turned to extreme measures to bring an end to injustice.]]

* [[BigBad Aion]] of ''ChronoCrusade'' dresses in all white, and comes with {{white hair|BlackHeart}}. Underneath his disguise however is a total bastard. Prone of [[LargeHam long winded speeches]] and making your life a total misery.
* Love Machine, the big bad AI gone mad in ''SummerWars'' might qualify. After it feeds on a few unsuspecting avatars he goes from rather ditzy looking to something that could only be described as a Hindu deity sporting a permanent SLasherSmile, HolyHalo and and all. What drives the point home though is the bright white godlike aura he can activate at will in this form, making him look like a cyber-messiah. As it devours more and more accounts and its power grows the halo becomes so enormously huge and shiny it actually blots out the ambient light of OZ itself.
