* The White Immortal from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' does his best to present himself [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2103 as an angelic figure.]] He is also a rather unpleasant fellow willing to manipulate Tara the griffin, and take advantage of her desire to find her wife in order to hurt Elliot.

* The Zedi Order from [[http://space-blood.thecomicseries.com/comics/1 Space Blood]] are an evil equivalent to the [[Franchise/StarWars Jedi Order]] and can be compared to an overzealous church order that thinks [[HeteronormativeCrusader killing a certain sexuality is good]] and their so called God, Sanctamus the incarnation of the Sacred Side has a light based name but has not been seen.

*** While the Necromancers of the Shintula clan, who channel the black Power of Death, can be quite violent and brutal and are not known for kindness, they are mostly desperate and try to save the land. The Bikta, who channel the white Power of Life, are however KnightsTemplar of the worst kind.

* Altair of ''Webcomic/WhiteDarkLife'' is an angel. And also a complete and utter sociopathic murderer of demons(themselves [[DarkIsNotEvil not truly evil]]) who has no problems with destroying the BalanceOfGoodAndEvil just to please God. Though thankfully, the other angels follow the [[LightIsGood other trope]].

* Three of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'''s characters are Heroes of Light, and they all play with this trope a little. [[LittleMissBadass Rose]], as the Seer of Light, touches it by proxy, preferring to use dark-based magic (thus playing into DarkIsNotEvil), while [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Vriska]], the Thief of Light, is...[[AmbiguouslyEvil "ambiguous"]]. Vriska is contrasted to [[spoiler:Aranea]], a Sylph of light (combining healing with her aspect who's well intentioned [[spoiler: and willing to sacrifice anyone in a plan to fix the paradox-space]].
** "Light" in the Homestuck mythos is actually the Aspect of Fortune, not goodness or literal light, which partially explains this.

** Troll mythology holds that [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angels are evil monsters]]. When they appear in the story, they appear to be made of pure light and [[spoiler: revere [[OmnicidalManiac Jack Noir]] as their lord]].
** In fact, one of the posters on the MSPA forum has noticed that most "threats [to the trolls] feature or involve lights or brightness" ([[spoiler:Vriska's fairy sparkles, Eridan's [[BlackMagic "white science"]], vampire Kanaya (the troll undead are associated with the sun, and Kanaya ''glows''), the way Terezi becomes blind, Bec Noir's white-green lightning, and Lord English (implied to be their culture's version of TheGrimReaper, detailed two subbullets below).]]) "All pretty grim and chilling for a nocturnal race--very well-constructed".
** Feferi is the Witch of Life, the life aspect generally bringing healing powers. Assuming her ancestor, the [[EvilOverlord Imperial]] [[BigBadDuumvirate Condesce]], has the same attribute (she ''was'' able to extend another troll's life-span, after all,) then she definitely qualifies for this.
** The comic's BigBad Lord English also counts, seeing as he's flashing in a number of colors [[ItMakesSenseInContext matching up to billiard balls]] and he has a BreathWeapon of color-shifting light that [[spoiler:can kill ghosts and destroy ''spacetime itself''. Leaving mysterious cracks that also brightly glow in his billiard colors. It should also be noted that the only zone of reality he's been seen destroying in the Furthest Ring, which is contrasted to his cracks by usually being pitch-black]]. His entire gang is also associated with a bright green, [[spoiler:as when he was a kid, English promised that he would paint everything in his sister's [[AlienBlood harlequin blood]] after he kills her. He lived up to that]].
** Sburb players' dreamselves are divided between the light moon of Prospit and the dark moon of Derse. Of the three trolls that pulled a FaceHeelTurn, two had a Prospitian dreamself. Additionally, guess where the dreamself of the player who offered no [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone remorse]] or [[KillingInSelfDefense justification]] for their actions resided. [[spoiler: Admittedly, this is partially due to MindControl at the hands of a [[DarkIsEvil Derse dreamer]] and another Prospit dreamer.]]

** In the print-only book ''StartOfDarkness'', according to Redcloak, [[spoiler:the gods made the AlwaysChaoticEvil races such as Goblins, Orcs, Kobolds and such as XP Fodder for their followers to kill and level up, thus getting stronger.]]

* ''DominicDeegan''s Lord Siegfried "Siggy" von Callan falls neatly into this category. A Royal Knight of the comic's kingdom, and one of the most masculine (and arguably, prettiest) characters in the comic, Siggy also happens to be temperamental, violent, and [[spoiler: a raging racist cheerfully capable of hanging innocent, nature-loving Orcs ''from adolescence.'']]

* Kore from ''{{Goblins}}'' is a paladin - how he remains a paladin is yet to be revealed - who kills supposedly AlwaysChaoticEvil races, as well as anyone who associates with them, voluntarily or not. KnightTemplar does not even begin to cut it. His magical aura looks like angel wings made of tortured souls.

* Angelo, from ''OurLittleAdventure''. He is a high level cleric who wears a non-evil (though a bit [[FashionableAsymmetry whimsical]]) outfit, complete with a HolyHalo. What he actually is, is an evil and mentally unstable villain with a [[PathOfInspiration legion of fanatical followers]].
* In DemonEater, the path to The wasteland [[spoiler:which actually is the human world]] is a big hole of light in the pitch-black demon world.
* in ''PowerpuffGirlsDoujinshi'' Bell has long, white hair and her costume is also white but she's the EvilCounterpart to the title characters, especially Blossom.
* In ''OffWhite,'' the white spirit snow leopard is very...malevolently territorial at the very least.

* The main character [[WhiteHairBlackHeart Danny]] of ''ChessPiece'' uses Holy, but is a sadistic, amoral EvilPrince who may or may not have killed his great-grandfather. Ironically, in spite of this, (and his TakeOverTheWorld scheme) a short time when he ruled the country while his dad was gone saw him to be a fair ruler. Go figure.
