* In ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'', Gravity-elemental spells usually manifest as spells of darkness, appearing as orbs and/or vortexes of shadowy energy. The Gravity summon Diabolos is also a BigRedDevil that is sometimes fought in a dark, shadowy alternate dimension. Otherwise the Dark-elemental abilities you're likely to see frequently are Shadow Flare and the Dark Knight's Dark Wave/Darkside attack. The Ivalice titles like ''FinalFantasyTactics'' and ''FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'' work Dark into the standard ElementalRockPaperScissors set-up.

Added DiffLines:

* [[HornyDevils Artemis]] of ''Webcomic/WhiteDarkLife'' has the title of "Endless Shadow Armed Demon Lady" for this explicit trope. Not only can she form limbs from her shadow to strike at enemies and drain their life energy, but she also uses her shadow as a storage room for anything or [[NeverFoundTheBody anyone]] she feels the need to take. Naturally her main weakness is bright flashes of light.

* Scarecrows appear to be strong at darkness magics in ''Webcomic/TheSanityCircus''. Posey can turn into a shadow to travel quickly and even WallCrawl, and even when stabbed by Luther she still manages to engulf and (seemingly) kill him and walk away.

* This is one of the first abilities learned by the Sage class in ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIX''. The other class of magic they learn is from the [[StuffBlowingUp Bang element.]].

to:

* In ''DragonQuestVIII'', Angelo, despite being otherwise very much ThePaladin, can learn the Whack series of OneHitKill spells. Instant death spells usually fall under the domain of priests and clerics in the series.
** The "Zam" family of spells was introduced in ''[[DragonQuestMonsters Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker]]'' and eventually made its way to the main series in ''IX''. It manifests in the form of dark lightning and appears to be a counterpart to the "Zap" family of spells usually only learnable by the main heroes of the series.

* In ''TheBlackCompany'', the ''Shadowmasters'' are aptly named. Ironically, one is afraid of the dark. Make of that what you will.
** He's not so much afraid of the dark as the flesh eating shadows (or worst) that might be hiding in the dark.

* TheDCU's shadow wielders, by and large, draw their powers from an alternate dimension known as the Shadowland (or Dark Zone). Much like their Marvel counterparts, they range the gamut from hero to villain. Most interestingly, the shadows created by [[Comicbook/{{Starman}} the Shade]], were at one point analyzed by a police scientist. [[GoMadFromTheRevelation He went insane the moment he looked at the sample in the microscope.]]
