* ''Anime/SonicX'': ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' {{deconstruct|ionFic}}s the already-dark third season of ''Anime/SonicX'' and turns it into a CosmicHorrorStory in a war-torn galaxy that wouldn't look out of place in ''Warhammer 40000''. Not to mention the rampant graphic violence, [[BlackAndGrayMorality ambiguous morality]], and BodyHorror.

* Jeftoon01 has drawn a series called [[http://jeftoon01.deviantart.com/gallery/11344500 Twisted Princess]] wherein various [[Franchise/DisneyPrincess Disney Princesses]] are portrayed in macabre styles, ranging from creepy to plain horrific. Each drawing has an accompanying short story that details how the princesses came to share such dark fates. He is also working on a similiar set, Twisted Fairies, with descriptions connecting fates of each disney Fairy to a larger MythArc. [[http://jeftoon01.deviantart.com/gallery/26266974 Here y'go]].

Not to mention the rampant graphic violence, [[BlackAndGrayMorality ambiguous morality]], and BodyHorror.
** ''FanFic/PrisonIslandBreak'' makes most DarkFic look like a cookbook ''right from the start'', taking the best part of the franchise to prison. We're talking Sonic the Cop Killer here. It's not just the way that the writer seems to find a new way to violate basic human rights in every chapter. It's not even the way that despite the torture, the graphic rape, the murders, the savage bloodshed and the strong drama, they successfully maintain the character's core personalities. It's the way they continue to give their readers the gut-churning feeling that they actually DidDoTheResearch.

* ''FanFic/{{Raccoon}}'' is a ''Franchise/SlyCooper'' kill fic (Dimitri brutally tortures and murders Sly), which, to some, has to be read to be believed. The author apologizes in advance to anyone who gets nightmares after reading it.

* There are a number of ''TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' Dark Fics. The general public may look upon the Turtles as kid friendly fare thanks to AdaptationDisplacement, but the fics in question hearken back to the days of the original comics, which got pretty damned dark and violent. Yoshi's backstory alone was nowhere near kid-friendly. There is a [[http://www.fanfiction.net/community/Beautiful_Dark/14830/ Fan Fiction Dot Net community]] devoted to these darkfics, many of which are quite well-constructed.

''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3508375/1/How-To-Break-A-Family How To Break A Family]]'' involves D.W. being kidnapped. It gets [[FromBadToWorse worse from there]]. Thora dies of a heart-attack after hearing the news, Mrs. Read and Mr. Read divorce after the kidnapping, Arthur and Kate grow up dysfunctional, and there is a lot of violence. Other fics [[VerySpecialEpisode emulate]] the series but deal with rough but age-appropriate topics.

* The ''FanFic/MoreThanMyFriend'' series of ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' fanfic is light on darkness compared to other fanfics but is still dark in its own right, especially when compared to the source. The spinoff material is more fluffy. The first fic is about Mac being abused by his BigBrotherBully and forced to buy drugs for him. The second [[SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome begins with]] his brother and mother dying in an accident, Mac being sent to an orphanage, and Frankie deciding to take him in.



* The ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'' is on the EarnYourHappyEnding side of things, and ultimately a lot of circumstances have ''[[NiceJobFixingItVillain improved]]'' from what they were at the beginning... but there is a long list of good reasons why this version of Discord is considered the most horrifying the fandom has ''ever'' produced.
** In a bit of irony, its revealed that the Shadows Who Make, Watch, and Rule's ([[spoiler:otherwise known as [[HumansAreCthulhu the Writers, Readers, and Hasbro]]]]) collective dark side is personified in Nyarlathotrot, the Spirit of Horror, Tragedy, and Grimdark. As a result, Nyarlathotrot is basically a MadArtist who views making worlds where Dark Fics take place as his duty and an art form. Thankfully, the other deities, especially Amicitia, keep him in check and step in to save his worlds.

* ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/300014/when-the-bough-breaks When The Bough Breaks]]'' deals with a topic fiction usually overlooks. It is about Cadance having a miscarriage, and both her and her husband having to deal with it.
* ''WebVideo/FriendshipIsWitchcraft'' is an AbridgedSeries-esque reimagining of the series where Twilight is a narcissistic VillainProtagonist, Fluttershy is a cult leader, Rarity is a ShellShockedVeteran, Applejack committed various war crimes but was let off scot-free, and Pinkie Pie is a StepfordSmiler whose parents died as a filly. It's all PlayedForLaughs for the most part but it is still dark.

* Not even a game as so lighthearted and with so abstract but also equally lighthearted characters as ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies'' is safe. More specifically, most popular fanfics on the Garden Warfare series are darkfics portraying the games as an actual war, with secretly depraved characters to boot. For example, in ''For Him to Be Forgiven, For Them to Fix,'' about the relationships between several wartime Plants, we get to see horrifying things, including but not limited to:

**''If I've Been Enveloped in Tenderness'' is a rather grim and ''explicit'' fic. To elaborate, Ragyo won and there is a very high body count with Mako's parents, Nudist Beach, and two of the Elite Four being executed. The fic can be found on Archive of Our Own, where it is rated thusly.
