To be fair, DarkIsNotEvil, and the Academy Of Evil may just be suffering from a bad reputation. In this case it will at worst be teaching the [[strike:Dark]] [[GreyAndGrayMorality Off-Grey]] [[TheDarkArts Arts]] and fomenting {{ambition|IsEvil}} and {{guile|Hero}} in the student body. Speaking of which, expect it to have a near [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority Darwinian social scene]] that makes most prisons seem like a SugarBowl. The AlphaBitch won't just badmouth you, she'll have her GirlPosse cut you up and sell you for parts to the MadScientist-in-training.

* In the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, any institution run by {{Taskmaster}} is this - he first came to prominence running schools for henchmen of other supervillains. Later, during ''Comicbook/DarkReign'', he was in charge of ''The Initiative'' for a while. He's so good at what he does that the government sometimes hires him to train their operatives, including a replacement ComicBook/CaptainAmerica.

* From ''Literature/HarryPotter'': Durmstrang, a {{downplayed}} example, where people are taught the Dark Arts instead of Defense Against the Dark Arts, has a slight reputation of being this. Grindelwald, Dumbledore's old arch-nemesis, comes from here. We do meet Durmstrang alumni who are definitely not evil and take a hard stand against evil (Viktor Krum comes to mind right away) and this isn't shown as being very odd. And even Durmstrang had to draw the line and expel Gellert Grindelwald, where a school that really played this trope straight would probably have nurtured him.
