** Ichimatsu participating in SelfHarm and/or contemplating suicide is a surprisingly common fandom plot. [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11759064/1/Are-You-Okay Here]] is a particularly heartbreaking example, and [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11865004/1/ESP-Kitty-s-Return another]] by the same author.

** The series starting with ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11462596/1/PVZGW-I-ll-Fight-Till-The-End I'll Fight 'til The End]]'' is filled with enough themes of abuse and war trauma to not fit on this page (it even ''starts'' with the protagonist completely pushed into a corner knowing that the [[ChildSoldiers almost-underaged]] leader was willing [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior to beat him to a pulp after being told that zombies ''do'' have feelings.]]) One prime example of the themes present occurs in the sequel, where [[spoiler:the protagonist finds his DisappearedDad and remembers just ''why'' he ran away from him and invoked an inversion of IHaveNoSon. He then enters a trance and kills his own father as a KarmicDeath for the latter's disregard for human life. It's enough to scare his lover and second-in-command into slapping him and forcing his team to desert him.]]

* The point of ''Literature/{{Wicked}}'', applying this trope to ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz''.

to:

* The point of ''Literature/{{Wicked}}'', the ''Literature/{{Wicked}}'' series, applying this trope to ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz''.''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.



* Music/{{Vocaloid}} has some pretty dark fanfics, such as ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7757302/1/From_Concert_to_Chaos From Concert to Chaos]]'' which involves Miku and Rin's {{Evil Counterpart}}s rushing the stage ''during a concert'' and beating the daylights out of them ''in front of over 16,000 fans''.

** Website/FanFictionDotNet abounds with fanfiction describing Naruto's all-out, lifelong struggle to utterly decimate the Leaf Village because people hated him (he recognizes [[http://www.narutobase.net/manga/Naruto/485/13 this]] ''[[http://www.narutobase.net/manga/Naruto/485/14 possibility]]'' himself). These are usually chock full of tales of him being beaten, burned, stabbed, mugged, occasionally raped (if the author is going for some real shock value), harassed, having his house destroyed, and generally just doing everything possible to make him [[WoobieDestroyerofWorlds kill everything forever]].

* ''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.

** Quite a few NuzlockeComics could be counted as this, though the successful ones are closer to EarnYourHappyEnding. They still generally involve a ''lot'' more death and angst than the source material, and one fan comic in particular even has multiple references to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''.

** One of the better examples of this genre is ''All_the_Roads_We_Have_To_Walk All The Roads We Have To Walk'', which tosses Sora through a keyhole into a "shadow dimension" of sorts and charges him with finding a way home. Despite being a darkfic, the series maintained much of the tone of the original series simply by taking the darkest moments of the games and using them as a baseline for the overall tone of the series; it isn't dark so much as it is dark''er'', and much closer to the center of the [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism Sliding Scale]] than the main series. Granted, there are some ''very'' dark moments (just to name one, Halloween Town comes with its' own {{Heartless}} {{Expy}} of [[SilentHill Pyramid Head]]) but the situation ''never'' feels completely hopeless, and the series comes [[FanFicRecs/KingdomHearts highly recommended]] even for people who usually avoid darkfics like the plague.

** ''Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha [=BetrayerS=]'' is something of a household name for ''Nanoha'' darkfic, not so much because of blood, gore, and murder, but because of how thoroughly and gleefully it subverts the original's enlightened ideals of ThePowerOfFriendship, honest communication, and family bonds. The author instead turns the story into a ''Literature/GameOfThrones'' political clusterfuck, where Hayate masterminds armed coups, Nanoha has to fight Fate (again) and Subaru for reasons she is not allowed to explain to them and vomits blood every morning from overexertion, and a 9-year-old Vivio has to fight both of her mothers in a bid for galactic dictatorship.
