* ''VideoGame/BlackGuards'' and its sequel, has your band of thugs, madmen and junkies dealing with enemies much worse than yourselves as you try to prove yourself innocent of a murder in the first game and on a dark quest for revenge in the second.

* ''VideoGame/GrimDawn'' has a steampunk fantasy world where humanity is pushed to the brink of extinction by an invasion of other-dimensional beings and the undead. The situation has become so bad that gold has become worthless, it's useful iron that's the currency.

* ''VideoGame/LegacyOfKain'', the world of Nosgoth is rotting away when its guardians became corrupted. Demons and undead roam dark forests and swamps while bandits are free to murder as they please. And these are the good old days!!! Because the vampire messiah who was supposed to save the world didn't. Instead he raised a horde that reduced humanity to cowering behind a single fortified city while his vampire minions cloud the skies with toxic fumes, as the world is dying even more rapidly. And then an EldritchAbomination decides to get into the act...

* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' moved from LowFantasy into this genre in its 2010 edition. The gods are at best silent, and at worst curse mortals into monsters or help demons take over civilizations, the angels are terrifying creatures that are brought into the world to help the former demons, the vampires and werewolves are bloodthirsty/savage monsters, the Night Creatures take a page from [[TheFairFolk]] and abduct and/or eat people, or try to kill anyone who's out alone at night... And strictly all of the giant monsters raid settlements to steal, kill or plunder. Oh, and the only magic users are necromancers, who reanimate beings anathema to all life (which secrets are revealed by death gods) except them because they are scared of death. Most human "deities" and goblin leaders are demons, and the elves are man-eating ecoterrorists. In short, not unlike [[Warhammer]], life as a peasant must be short and brutal.
** However, [[AWorldHalfFull]] is a force too. The elves are rather friendly if arrogant and if you don't offend them they'll be good trading partners, the vast majority people will adhere to [[SacredHospitality]], the dwarves are generally pretty decent people, the humans are varied but generally friendly, and there needs no grim antihero : you can play an [[IdealHero]], forge an utopia for your dwarves, and triumph over all the nasties with just bravery, dwarven ingeniosity, and good steel.

* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' moved from LowFantasy into this genre in its 2010 edition. Staying outside at night is tantamount to suicide by hordes of bogeymen, other evil creatures casually kidnap and murder people, and [[DugTooDeep Hidden Fun Stuff]] occasionally breaks free to take over religions and civilizations. The 2012 edition, with its necromancers, divine curses such as vampires and werebeasts, and evil {{Death World}}s [[RainOfBlood nastier]] [[BodyHorror than]] [[ZombieApocalypse ever]], cements its status as Dark Fantasy.

* ''Manga/AyashiNoCeres'': Certainly one of Creator/YuuWatase's more [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism cynical creations]], the story follows the Japanese tradition of [[ShapeshiftingLover the swan maidens]], but full of vengeful celestial maidens, jealous husbands, ancient family curses, {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, evil corporations, incest, rape, insanity, and with that shojo twist, doomed romances.
