* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'': In the "Heaven's Feel" route, [[spoiler:Saber is consumed by the Shadow and corrupted by Angra Mainyu into Saber Alter, a nihilistic, nigh-emotionless black knight who sees it as her duty to cut down her enemies without mercy and with the full extent of her power]].

* The Black Knight from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance]]''. There's a very good reason why he's the page image: he happens to hit nearly every single characteristic associated with this trope. He looks badass, [[PowerEchoes sounds badass]], wields a [[{{BFS}} huge sword]], is always [[{{Leitmotif}} accompanied by ominous]] CrowningMusicOfAwesome, is [[TheDragon the second-in-command]] to the two different {{Big Bad}}s of both the game ''and'' its sequel, survives having a castle collapse on him and is the catalyst for the hero's quest of vengeance. His identity is heavily implied through battle and text in the sequel ''Radiant Dawn'', and is ultimately revealed a few chapters ''before'' his helmet comes off [[spoiler: as General Zelgius.]]

** Finally the Ur Example appears as [[spoiler: Saber of Red,]] Mordred, bastard offspring of Artoria and Morgana Le Fey. In addition to SpikesOfVillainy and the appearance of a TinTyrant, her armor's helmet makes her identity undecipherable to anyone, including her own master. Like the Mordred of legend she is obsessed with becoming king and being legitimized in the eyes of Artoria, with any talk of [[GenderBender her gender]], her [[Characters/FateStayNight father]], or even the Round Table being a massive BerserkButton for her. Despite this she's also revealed to be something of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold and a WellDoneSonGuy, who bonds with her Master in a father/daughter relationship she never had with Artoria, and manages to [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile after dealing a fatal blow to [[TheVamp Assassin of Red]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha'' has several as well. There's Saber of Black, the legendary [[spoiler:Seigfried]] who visibly embodies the trope in his all black armor that renders him totally invulnerable. In keeping with the DarkIsNotEvil elements of this trope, he is among the kindest members of his faction, and [[spoiler:sacrifices his life by transplanting his heart into the body of a dying, sentient, homonculus]]
** There's also Rider of Black, an androgynous bishounen who wears all black armor with a white coat and accents to symbolize his HeartOfGold. Fitting, given his status as [[spoiler:a paladin, specifically Astolfo, the twelfth paladin of Charlamagne]]
** Rider of Red fills a similar role, acting as the counterpart to both Rider of Black ''and'' Saber of Black, in that he is [[spoiler: Achilles, the invulnerable hero of legend. Like Rider of Black he [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin is a Rider]], possessing his chariot from life as a noble phantasm. Like Saber of Black, he is clad in all black armor and almost totally invulnerable, able to ignore any attacks from opponents who lack Divinity, and able to shrug off the attacks of those who do. He is also among the kindest of his faction, though like Saber of Black he has BloodKnight tendencies and something of a HeelRealization.]]

** Darknuts in general games for that matter, although not all of them wore black armor. Similar figures can also be found in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' (the Mighty Darknuts sent to attack Link when Zelda got captured), and a single black Knight enemy (maybe with that as a name) in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheMinishCap''.

* In Webcomic/{{KeychainOfCreation}}, [[FanNickname Secret]] is ''technically'' this, as she is a Death Knight, and got her Exaltation from a DealWithTheDevil. But in practice, she's more of a ReluctantMonster: she tries to avoid hurting people when possible, she doesn't follow her lord's orders, and she only made her Deal because she [[IDontWantToDie was afraid of dying]] of the plague that ravaged her island. She's still a minor WalkingWasteland, though, and she infrequently has bursts of Resonance, which are [[NightmareFuel not pretty]].

* Sparhawk's enemies in ''Literature/{{The Elenium}}[=/=]Tamuli'' essentially see him as this, due partially to the black Pandion Knight armor, partially to the Pandion order's reputation for casual cruelty, and partially to [[spoiler: being [[TheChosenOne Anakha]].]]
