Added DiffLines:

* The [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Defiler]] in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' runs on copious amounts of Black Magic, usually powered by ManaDrain of their hapless victims and focused on nastily debuffing whoever they're fighting at the moment. If promoted to a [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils Dark Oppressor]], the Defiler can debuff most things into being a few steps from death unless they make shaking off the black magic their top priority.

* Death magic in LoisMcMasterBujold's ''Literature/{{Chalion}}'' books hits two out of three--it summons a demon from the deity that at least some of the world's residents consider evil and has the sole purpose of (surprise!) killing the target. However, it also requires the [[CastFromHitPoints sacrifice of the caster]].

* In ''BattleForWesnoth'', black magic is pretty much synonymous with necromancy, and hence evil.

* LegendOfTheFiveRings has ''maho'', blood magic that ticks all the boxes. Its power source are evil spirits, it typically spreads TheCorruption in you when used, it often involves blood sacrifices and the spells generally have very nasty effects. The worst thing is that [[EvilIsEasy it is very easy to learn]] and will literally steal your soul if you overuse it. Best case scenario? Become a free-willed HumanoidAbomination. Worst case? [[AndIMustScream Well…]]

* Subversion: in ''FireEmblem'', dark magic isn't necessarily reserved for evil characters, and you can have good-hearted Shamans, Druids and / or Summoners in your party. Their dark spells are usually more powerful than the usual, but are extremely slow as well; also one of them, the Nosferatu magic, can steal hit points from the enemy ''and'' heal the caster's previous wounds (Note about this spell, it was originally called "Resire", and was [[LightIsNotGood Light Magic]], it returned to being Light magic in the Radiance games, [[{{Nerf}} albeit much weaker]]. However, the effects of dark spell generally differ quite a bit from the basic "deal damage" spells that the Light and [[ElementalRockPaperScissors Anima]] branches have. For example, Eclipse halves enemy hp, Luna pierces resistance… and so on. Notable dark magic users are:

* ''Film/WarCraft2016'' has the fel. It requires souls as fuel, corrupts anyone who as much as has contact with it into serving its causes and heavily mutates the user.

* In Piers Anthony's ''IncarnationsOfImmortality'' series, even using a purely benign magical item for the best of purposes with no conception that you're doing anything wrong will damn your soul to Hell if the item's original creator used Black Magic to create it. Moral #1: don't buy magic items off eBay. Moral #2: [[CrapsackWorld the afterlife is unfair and arbitrary]].

** Black magic in ''The Elder Scrolls'' is a philosophical disagreement. While some people consider necromancy or Darrick rituals evil, it does not involve any corruption like black magic does in many other settings. In this setting, magic is neither good nor evil, it is a tool and depends on how you use it.
