* In ''MiddleEarthShadowOfMordor'', 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.

* Baten Kaitos Origins has an evil empire who tries to get rid of people's Wings of the Heart by attempting to build a glorious utopian artificial continent floating in the sky and destroying all the other natural floating continents. Thousands of years in the past, however, is an evil cultist who teaches his followers that their Wings of the Heart are the only things that truly matter. This eventually leads to a war where he can be seen draining energy from some corpses with his shadow dragon. You even fight him during the second phase of the final battle.

* The Covenant in VideoGame/{{Halo}} use a lot of light in their culture. TronLines abound in their architecture, the Prophets claim to be the guiding light of the Covenant, and they mostly use plasma weaponry, often employing it like a BeamOfDivineRetribution.

** The Forerunners' technology is almost all bright and shiny, with HardLight being integral to their architecture, ships, weapons, etc. Though they believed themselves to be the galaxy's caretakers, they were in practice imperialist AbusivePrecursors, though mostly of the BelievingTheirOwnLies type.

Added DiffLines:

** Real sunlight is itself shockingly dangerous. A Neath-dweller like yourself can be instantly killed by exposure to sunlight; even precautions like staying indoors and under cover won't keep you safe for long. It also [[SanityMeter reduces your terror]], which can lead to ''[[DescentIntoAddiction sunlight addiction]]''.
-->''The memory of the light is always with you. [[PressXToDie Go on. Open a box.]]''
** The Chapel of Lights, on the outside, seems to be an ordinary church that offers free meals to visitors. Trying the food and attending a service will rapidly reveal that the god they worship is [[ImAHumanitarian The Drowned Man.]]

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: The Aether Foundation]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' wear bright white uniforms and have an outward goal of caring for injured Pokémon; [[CaptainObviousReveal no one was surprised to learn they were the real villains]]. Their leader might also be one of the most disturbing and evil villains in the entire franchise.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'', you have the hallow biome, which is a polar opposite to TheCorruption, with multicolored trees and a permanent rainbow, but infects other biomes exactly the same way, and its inhabitants (which include pixies and unicorns) are just as nasty as their corrupt counterparts.

Despite this, the non-playable characters do not seem to mind it that much (they are willing to live in houses set up in the Hallow, but not the Corruption or Crimson; the Dryad treats the world having a high Hallow percentage as a good thing) and it cannot replace mud like the Corruption can. It's a downplayed example -- not considered ''as bad'' as the "dark" biomes, but still a spreading world-infection with powerful enemies.

* Copy X from ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' and [[spoiler:Lumine]] from ''VideoGame/MegaManX 8'', which take on angelic forms during their boss battles. The [[VideoGame/MegaMan Classic series]] has Bright Man and Flash Man who also have light-based powers, and they're antagonists (though Bright Man is one of Dr. Cossack's creations, who attacked Mega Man due to Wily's manipulations).

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.
