* The White Queen in ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign''. Her body and clothing are entirely white (except for her black eyes), her powers include the ability to shoot FrickinLaserBeams, and she's worshipped as a goddess all around the world. But she doesn't care about humans at all, [[spoiler:except the main character Kyousuke, who really doesn't want her [[{{Yandere}} attentions]]. The White Queen manages to also be an example of DarkIsEvil, through her alter ego, the Black Maw]].

** One of the powerful lords of the Dark is the Black Rider. In the final book, we meet his partner, The White Rider: robbed in white and riding a white horse. Will muses this may represent the evil in beings totally "blinded by their shining ideas".

** And we have another, mortal example in [[BlondesAreEvil Luke]]. At the height of his cocky, assured evil, he wears a lot of pale, clean clothes like tailored pants and white button-downs, in contrast to his down-to-earth style pre-betrayal. Tellingly, when Percy has a dream-vision of him communicating with Kronos, he's dressed in a pure-white toga and bathed in light.

* In the first book of the ''ColdfireTrilogy'', [[spoiler:Senzei]] is tricked into consuming the Fire (water laced with solar fae) by a demon [[spoiler:masquerading as Ciani]] who tells him that it will turn him into an adept. It doesn't end well for him at all.

* Believe it or not, the CthulhuMythos invoked this trope occasionally. One of Yog-Sothoth's avatars is '''Aforgomon''', a being worshipped as the god of time who only manifests himself [[OhCrap to those who anger him]], accompanied by blinding light. Among [[HumanoidAbomination Nyarlathotep's]] forms there is the '''White Man''', an angelic looking blond man with white robes, and the '''Black Pharaoh''', who despite the name dresses himself in brightly coloured clothes.

* King Galbatorix from ''Literature/TheInheritanceCycle'' wields a pure white sword which he retrieved from the corpse of Vrael. Eragon observes that even the darkest black could not convey the same sense of evil that the white blade could, and that white is the real color of death.
