* In Middle-earth:ShadowofMordor, it becomes very clear by the end that [[spoiler: the wraith Celebrimbor]] wanting to be the "Bright Lord" of Mordor(as opposed to Sauron's status as Dark Lord) is NOT a good thing. For all of his bright colors and intention of overthrowing Sauron, he's willing to mind control hundreds of Uruk-Hai (who scream in terror and despair as he does so), chastises Talion for his attachment to his murdered family and attempts to convince him to abandon his allies and love interest. Flashbacks reveal that he actually succeeded in [[spoiler: stealing the One Ring from Sauron]] and raised an army to fight him. He would have won except that the ring flew off his finger to return to its true master as he was about to strike the final blow. The finale reveals that he's going to try to [[spoiler: forge a new One Ring to destroy Sauron for good.]] He says this as [[spoiler: Talion's]] eyes turn orange with the reflection of the fires of Orodruin (Mount Doom), the same way that Sauron's eyes glowed orange in his elven body in the flashbacks.

* Papa Blanc from ''[[DeBlob de Blob 2]]''. He poses as a benevolent religious leader decked out in white, as are his subordinates. He also uses remote-controlled drones that emit a gentle light that temporarily hypnotizes those who stare at it. [[spoiler: Papa Blanc is really Comrade Black, who plots to take over the colorful planet of Raydia through any means possible. His ultimate weapon is a giant version of the small drones mentioned above, the Hypno Ray, which combines the colors siphoned from the planet below. This combined color energy takes the form of a brilliant beam white light when shot back down to the planet. Using this weapon, Comrade Black can hypnotize the entire planet in a matter of about 45 minutes]].

* The "Crusade" in ''VideoGame/{{Anno1404}}'''s campaign, which is a decidedly sinister power grab under a veneer of holiness. The storyline ultimately results in the player defeating the wicked Cardinal Lucius' CorruptChurch with an institution that proves Light is Good after all.

In "Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth" one of the boss battles takes place in a church against a shadow who's taken the form of four-armed monster preacher who rides a coffin and has a face like an evil scarecrow with his lips sewn shut. He uses a very powerful a attack if you refuse to vow not to perform a certain action such as an attack or a special attack.

** Each of the five major NPC's in this game (Sirius, Regulus, Artemis, Orion, Altair) are ColorCodedForYourConvenience, (White, Blue, Red, Green, and Black, respectively). For most of the game, Sirius acts as your ally, giving you [[TheObiWan sage advice]] and [[EleventhHourSuperpower convenient power-ups just before boss fights]]. [[spoiler: That is, until you get 100 gold cards and beat the game's initial BigBad, Altair. Instead of escaping, Altair gets ambushed by Sirius, who steals Altair's Omni Cube (later explaining that Altair had stolen it form him in the first place) and [[FaceHeelTurn reveals himself]] as the real BigBad after [[TheWorfEffect vaporizing Altair]] with a [[FrickinLaserBeams laser beam]]]].
