** Arguably, ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords'' was one for the entire ''StarWars'' franchise, and one of the few dark fics to be an official part of the series.

* The original ''Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland'' is so full of possibilities that it has spawned quite a few "legitimate" examples in modern times, the most notable being the live-action [[Film/AliceInWonderland2010 Tim Burton movie]] and the video game ''VideoGame/AmericanMcGeesAlice''. Dark fanfics and fan art abound staring Dodgson's heroine, [[RuleThirtyFour many of them of a more mature nature]] with a [[SheIsAllGrownUp teenage or adult]], HotterAndSexier {{Xenafication}} of Alice.

** The play ''Theatre/DogSeesGod'' is something like the above Peanuts fic "High School", [[spoiler:though it gives Charlie Brown an EarnYourHappyEnding conclusion.]]

* To begin, let's get the ElephantInTheLivingRoom out of the way: A ''lot'' of {{doujinshi}} (which can be considered drawn fanfic) do this, both {{hentai}} and non-hentai. Steer clear especially of the hentai ones if your tolerance level for your favorite characters being raped is in any way low, as that's one of the ''least'' horrible things that'll happen to them.
* But even among R-rated {{Doujinshi}}, artist Takotsuboya's works ''really'' push the darkness slider up to eleven. It's so messed up the sex is just a ''distraction'' from how incredibly dark things are getting. Be warned: any of these may send you into a depressing funk for quite some time.
** ''Manga/KOn'': The ''Takotsuboya K-ON Trilogy'', one of the more infamous works.
** ''LightNovel/{{Oreimo}}'': The siblings' personalities took a dark and twisted turn, and things get progressively worse with every page from there. Have fun!
** ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'': When you were watching the anime, did you ever think "this series is pretty cute, but it would be a lot better with more gore, PTSD, and war crimes"? No? Well ''somebody'' did.
** ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'': The artist's most recent work. Imagine all the ship girls in a World War II setting. Now remember that most of the ship girls are from Japanese naval ships in World War II. Now, [[KillEmAll what was the fate of most of Japanese naval power in the war?]]



* ''Franchise/ArchieComics'':
** ''Franchise/{{Archie|Comics}}'' and ''ComicBook/ThePunisher'' met halfway in their unlikely [[ComicBook/ArchieMeetsThePunisher 1994 crossover]] (not a Fan Fic) in which The Punisher tracked an Archie lookalike to Riverdale with orders to apprehend rather than kill him. The original pitch involved Archie hiring The Punisher to kill a psychopath who murdered his entire family, but this was considered [[CerebusSyndrome too dark]].
** The above didn't stop them from coming up with ''ComicBook/AfterlifeWithArchie'' more than a decade later, which basically asks the question: "How would Riverdale handle a zombie apocalypse?" The answer is much, ''much'' darker than you'd think.
** Archie has since created an entire line of Archie horror series, such as ''ComicBook/ArchieVsPredator'' and ''ComicBook/ChillingAdventuresOfSabrina''.
* ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' crossed over with, of all characters, ''ComicBook/{{Spawn}}''. Naturally the latter was toned down in keeping with the former's (mostly) kid-friendly atmosphere, but still...



* The original ''Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland'' is so full of possibilities that it has spawned quite a few "legitimate" examples in modern times, the most notable being the live-action [[Film/AliceInWonderland2010 Tim Burton movie]] and the video game ''VideoGame/AmericanMcGeesAlice''. Dark fanfics and fan art abound staring Dodgson's heroine, [[RuleThirtyFour many of them of a more mature nature]] with a [[SheIsAllGrownUp teenage or adult]], HotterAndSexier {{Xenafication}} of Alice.
* The point of the ''Literature/{{Wicked}}'' series, applying this trope to ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz''. It's a book series based on both the MGM film and original ''Oz'' books. Within the first section alone there is Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West) being a ChildByRape, heavy religious themes, attempted baby murder, and several rather graphically described sexual scenes. That's not even getting into Elphaba's adulthood. ''Wicked'' is full of politics, violence, sex, and all sorts of other dark issues. The [[Theatre/{{Wicked}} musical]] is more family-friendly but is still dark fic material compared to the original ''Oz'' books.

** ''Literature/ForAllTime'' is basically what happens when FinalgesLaw is applied to history. Here, FDR dies of a stroke two weeks after Pearl Harbor, leaving the far less competent Henry Wallace in charge of the country during World War II. GoneHorriblyWrong doesn't even begin to describe it. Here, the most marginalized and insane figures become prominent leaders, ranging from President [[spoiler: Jim Jones]] to Emperor [[spoiler: Jean-Bedel Bokassa]] of France to [[spoiler: Andrei Chikatilo]] becoming premier of the Soviet Union, nations break up, genocides and civil wars happen on a daily basis, and nuclear and chemical weapons become common tools for war.

** ''Manga/{{Team 8}}'' is probably the most popular ''Naruto'' fanfic and has its fair share of darkness. Almost [[BigScrewedUpFamily every Hyuuga]] [[RonTheDeathEater is a complete jerk]] (especially towards Hinata). Kurenai has a DarkAndTroubledPast, and Naruto suffered near-systematic abuse prior to becoming a ninja that goes way beyond what the manga implies.
