* 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.

* 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.

!!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.

** The song "Kim" notably averts this, to horrifying effect. The murder and debauchery that Eminem frequently gets up in his songs can't be taken seriously, since he's usually in his goofball Slim Shady persona while rapping about it. On "Kim", however, he's very much ''not'' playing a character -- he's rapping, as Marshall Mathers, about murdering his wife. The result has been described as quite possibly the most stomach-churning song he's ever written, especially in comparison to "'97 Bonnie & Clyde", which had similar subject matter but played it for BlackComedy (as a parody of Creator/WillSmith's "Just the Two of Us").

-->I'm like a head trip to listen to, cause I'm only giving you\\
Things you joke about with your friends inside your living room\\
The only difference is I got the balls to say it\\
In front of y'all and I don't gotta be false or sugarcoated at all\\
I just get on the mic and spit it\\
And whether you like to admit it, I just shit it

** Same goes for Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses crew. Doug, Noah, Lewis and Lindsay are all much nicer and much more well-adjusted compared to WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]], [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] and WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick, respectively.

* Even ignoring ''ComicBook/{{Onslaught}}'', Professor Xavier [[http://www.uncannyxmen.net/character-related-topics/the-road-to-onslaught-the-darker-side-of-xavier has a very bad history]] of his dark side taking on a life of its own and coming into conflict with the Franchise/XMen. And the aforementioned ''Onslaught'' was a CrisisCrossover.
