** Perdita is this to Agnes Nitt in ''Discworld/{{Maskerade}}'' and later books. [[Discworld/LordsAndLadies Originally]] just a silly AwesomeMcCoolname she adopted, she turns into a full-formed split personality by ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum''.
** The Hiver in ''Discworld/AHatFullOfSky'' is an EldritchAbomination that is considered extremely dangerous to the humans whose minds it possesses. It actually tries to help them gain [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor what they wish for]], but it doesn't understand the difference between dark desires that are suppressed because the person knows they are not right and those that the person on the whole really wants fulfilled. Its victims are eventually driven insane and destroyed, but before that, they will presumably have become darker themselves, so to speak.

* ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'': When the Tiger Talisman splits Jakie between Yin and Yang, his "bad half" is closer to ADarkerMe as a BloodKnight JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

* The novelty {{Twitter}} account @dril is a parody of this. The character is (in {{Kayfabe}}) an 'Internet tough guy' type who thinks he's presenting himself online as being very edgy, with occasional self-deprecating humour. Unfortunately, he reveals himself as being a depraved, idiotic nerd with no perspective on reality at all.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'': Throughout the first "arc" of the Dark Knight class quests, your teacher Fray is constantly snapping at people who [[HoldingOutForAHero come to your for help]], and urging you to leave them to deal with their own problems. Yet for some reason, people seem to react as though it were ''you'' and not Fray talking to them. Then at the end of the arc comes TheReveal: [[spoiler:Fray ''is'' you. Specifically, s/he's the part of you that is absolutely ''[[HeroicFatigue sick and tired]]'' of [[ChronicHeroSyndrome constantly being the hero]], helping people who won't help themselves and [[DudeWheresMyRespect getting nothing but a "thank you" (if even that)]] for it, while being restrained by laws and leaders. When you refuse to let that side of you take over and walk away from it all, it [[EnemyWithout manifests itself as a doppelganger]] and tries to beat you down into compliance. Once you emerge triumphant, "Fray" gives up trying to take over forcefully, but promises to take over if you ever want it to.]]

* Near the end of ''VideoGame/{{Detention}}'', Ray meets a shadowy version of herself, implied to be [[spoiler: Ray's guilt over selling out the forbidden book club and causing many of her friends and schoolmates to be arrested, imprisoned, or executed]]. She will ask Ray questions, and Ray's answer to these questions will determine the ending you get. Answer a question incorrectly, and she will stay silent. Answer correctly, and she will give a short speech. Answer all questions correctly, and you get the good ending.
-->'''Shadow Ray''' (When you first meet her): I, am you. But you are not me.
-->'''Shadow Ray''' (after being given a correct answer): You... are me.

* Music/{{Eminem}}'s "Slim Shady" AlterEgo, a violent sadist who frequently engages in ComedicSociopathy. On "The Real Slim Shady", he comments on this trope and describes himself/Shady as, basically, a Darker Me for his fans as a whole, the guy who says and does all the awful things that they fantasize about but are too afraid to actually do for fear of the consequences.

!!General examples:

* Many internet {{troll}}s. Do not get us started on [[Website/FourChan Anon]], [[Website/SomethingAwful SA Goons]], and various others.
* The ResidentFreak may not be entirely lying about the crazy things they do and believe - which just makes them even weirder.
* Pretty much the entire purpose of VideogameCrueltyPotential; you can choose to be a complete and total, uninhibited psychopath, with no consequences.
* {{Griefer}}s and {{Munchkin}}s. This is pretty much everything that motivates/enables both types.
* In FanFiction, overlap this with a failed AuthorAvatar and you get a MarySue. A JerkSue or possibly even a VillainSue, if they're heavy on the "darker" and/or "ruder" parts; emphasizing the "cooler" part can result in any kind of Sue.
* Very common in music genres, for instance metal and gangsta rap, where someone will put on a persona of being evil and tough in their songs, because they are too nice to do it in real life.

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/WeaponsShopDeOmasse'', where PirateGirl Malibu acts in person with the intimidating, butch, LargeHam personality you'd expect from a lady pirate, but her posts on the {{Twitter}}-{{Expy}} [[LevelGrinding Grindcast]] are written in a ValleyGirl style and mostly about her love life.
