* Parodied with Darkern Edgier from ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12128915/1/The-Edit-War-for-Ash-s-Freedom-to-not-be-Betrayed The (Edit) War for Ash's Freedom to not be Betrayed]]''. Rather than being an imposing badass, he's a pretentious edgelord who's ''far'' too fixated on "fixing" Ash Ketchum.

** ''Dark Souls II'' introduces Sir Raime, the Fume Knight in the ''Old Iron King'' DLC. [[FaceHeelTurn Formerly a loyal knight of King Vendrick]], he was cast out from Drangleic for unknown reasons and ultimately came in contact with [[HumanoidAbomination Nadalia, the Bride of Ash]]. Becoming [[LoveMakesYouEvil enraptured by her due to their shared suffering]], he ultimately chose to become her eternal protector, and defeating him is required to retrieve the MacGuffin within the DLC.

** Boethiah, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of Plots (as well a litany of high crimes including Murder and Treason), takes this appearance throughout the series. When in [[GenderBender male or female form]], Boethiah's usual appearance is of a caped warrior wearing all black. He is depicted with a [[AnAxeToGrind massive battle axe]] in male form and a CoolSword in female form. It is theorized that this may be the corrupted appearance of the Aedric deity Trinimac (now the Daedric Prince Malacath) who Boethiah swallowed and temporarily assumed his form. Additionally, the Ebony Mail is an artifact associated with Boethiah and is a suit of black armor, turning its wearer into one of these (at least aesthetically).

* ForHonor has an entire faction of Knights, so this is going to crop up. Conquerors are conscripted criminals who managed to rise above the rest of the rabble and belong to no knightly order, wear 11th century Crusades-era armour, and wield a flail and heavy shield. Lawbringers, on the other hand, despite their noble-sounding name, are medieval [[JudgeDredd Judges]] who wear massive, heavy plate-armour based on Spanish designs, and carry halberds as their weapon, and are one of the more annoying classes to fight due to their grapple-heavy playstyle (being thrown off ledges to your unceremonious death is a not uncommon fate when fetching up against Lawbringers). Any Knight character can be made a literal Black Knight by unlocking the "Dark Iron" material in character customization that turns a Knight's armor black, and any Knight-even the Warden, the most stereotypical "heroic" Knight character-can fight as dishonourably as they want to win matches. Certain colour schemes also encourage this look.
** In the story mode however, there is [[BigBad Apollyon]], the commander of the Blackstone Legion. A veteran ActionGirl [[TheSocialDarwinist Social Darwinist]] who towers over most other characters in the game, wears a badass cape and black, skeletal-like armor, wields a {{BFS}} and has a unique fighting style, Apollyon seeks to keep the war between the Legions, [[HornyVikings Warborn]] and [[{{Samurai}} Chosen]] going forever in order to allow the "wolves" of each faction to rise up in an endless ForeverWar. [[spoiler: Despite being killed by the Orochi at the climax of the story mode, Apollyon almost gets her wish, and the war continues for another six years before peace talks are even attempted by representatives of the three sides.]] Her second in command, Lawbringer Holden Cross, the player character Warden from the Knights chapter, and the Warden's Conqueror friend Stone also fit since they too wear the black armour and black and yellow livery of the Blackstone Legion [[spoiler: but discard it for [[KnightInShiningArmor the brighter armour of the Iron Legions]] [[HeelFaceTurn when they abandon Apollyon and form a resistance movement against her]].]]

** [[PlayerCharacter Corrin]] from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates''. Their Nohr Noble promotion colors their attire predominantly in black and purple, and gives them [[MagicKnight access to magic as another option to their swords and dragonstones]], contrasting their [[ThePaladin Hoshido Noble's whites and silvers, and staves]]. However, a better and more clear-cut example of this trope would be Corrin's adoptive elder Nohrian brother, Xander. He's a [[KnightInShiningArmor Paladin]], an AntiVillain (on the ''Birthright'' path), wears black armor, rides a black horse even and wields a [[CastingAShadow darkness-infused]] ([[TheSacredDarkness holy]]) blade, Siegfried. Additionally, the younger Nohrian brother, Leo, also fits, though he's a MagicKnight instead, with his black armor and black horse wearing a horned helmet. Only his personal tome [[GreenThumb Brynhildr]] clashes with this, but Leo describes it as dark magic all the same. His introduction cutscene in ''Birthright'' takes the cake [[spoiler:since Corrin and their group are fighting him in what may as well be a ''graveyard''.]]

[[PlayerCharacter Corrin]] from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates''. Their Corrin/The Avatar]] is a rare example of a BlackKnight being the ''protagonist'', at least if they choose to side with [[{{Mordor}} Nohr]] and promote into the Nohr Noble promotion colors class. On top of getting a sweet suit of ebon armor, they also become a MagicKnight with the ability to use Tomes to cast spells. Rather unusually for a BlackKnight, however, the Avatar in ''Conquest'' [[NiceGuy is exceptionally kind]] [[DarkIsNotEvil and heroic]], being exceptionally compassionate and going out of their attire predominantly in black and purple, and gives them [[MagicKnight access way to magic spare as another option to their swords and dragonstones]], contrasting their [[ThePaladin Hoshido Noble's whites and silvers, and staves]]. However, a better and more clear-cut example of this trope would be Corrin's adoptive elder Nohrian brother, Xander. He's a many combatants as possible.

Nohrian-aligned Avatar, [[DarkIsNotEvil are just as heroic as any other]] KnightInShiningArmor. Additionally, the younger Nohrian brother, Leo, also fits, though he's Xander plays it more straight than most for wielding a {{BFS}} called Siegfried, while Leo is mainly a MagicKnight instead, who's more proficient in casting spells with his black armor and black horse wearing a horned helmet. Only his personal tome [[GreenThumb [[TomeOfEldritchLore Brynhildr]] clashes with this, but Leo describes it as dark magic all the same. His introduction cutscene in ''Birthright'' takes the cake [[spoiler:since Corrin and their group are than fighting him in what may as well be a ''graveyard''.]]

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim's'' ''Dragonborn'' DLC added the [[http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Dragonborn:Ebony_Warrior Ebony Warrior]], a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Redguard]] donning a full set of enchanted ebony armor, who appears when you turn level 80 and challenges you to a duel in the middle of nowhere. The devs also gave him a lot of [[ContractualBossImmunity immunities to your abilities]], making him virtually uncheesable, he has some of the most powerful spells, the two most annoying shouts in the game, and some really high skills to boot, making him just about the hardest BonusBoss to fight in the game. The reward for beating him is his gear[[note]]If you've been putting perks into your enchanting and smithing skills, you could probably make better equipment[[/note]] and some rare and useful, but otherwise findable, items, making beating him pretty much a BraggingRightsAward.

An enigmatic foe, clad head to toe in armor black as night, [[TwentyFourHourArmor which he is never seen without]]. Usually ridiculously powerful, he is feared by all who know of him. Wielding a sword, speaking in a [[BadassBaritone low monotone]] or sinister growl, and looking totally badass while doing it, he is almost always a major antagonist. TheHero probably has a score to settle with him. The mystery surrounding his true identity is often a main plot point. Given his armor, he can show up and fight in TheTourney without betraying it.

Commonly fills the role of TheDragon in fantasy stories, since when done right, Black Knights are absurdly cool. A Black Knight is usually found in settings in which a KnightInShiningArmor is also present. Frequently, they [[BloodKnight revel in combat]]. Sometimes, [[DarkIsNotEvil they're not actually evil]], but merely a SelfProclaimedKnight. Sometimes, [[SamusIsAGirl they're even a girl]]. Sometimes there's nothing but the [[AnimatedArmor suit of armor]].

A SubTrope of EvilWearsBlack. A MonsterKnight has a high chance of being a Black Knight. If the Black Knight is in service to a female villain, then it may be a case of [[LadyAndKnight Dark Lady and Black Knight]]. See also DarthVaderClone, because that black space knight is really influential, as well as TinTyrant when an EvilOverlord dons a set of black armor covering the entire body. Contrast ThePaladin.
