* ''MaiOtome'': the main antagonists use dark-themed [=GEMs=]. [[spoiler:Nina Wang]] has an Ultimate Black Diamond, which is said to be representative of her "extreme and mostly selfish" bonds with [[spoiler:[[ParentalIncest Sergay]] and Arika]], which is the opposite of the selfless bond between Master and Otome exemplified by the original Pure White Diamond. [[spoiler:Tomoe]] and the rest of the Valkyries use Cursed Obsidians of the Darkness, and Schwartz, named after the German word for black, is evil.

** Black Goku, Goku's EvilTwin, is probably the best example, [[ColorMotif heavily associated with the color black]]. His outfit is black, his ki blasts have KiAttacks and BattleAura are black, and he can assume a LivingShadow form.

** ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' {{Final Boss}}es Dark Matter, Dark Mind, and Dark Nebula. They're not related to each other.
*** Well, Dark Mind seems to be the [[AlternateUniverse Mirror World's]] version of Dark Matter.

* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'': Darkness/Nightshroud twists these [[DarkIsNotEvil tropes]] for all they're worth. Since dark in the Yu-Gi-Oh universe is stated to be a form of raw potential that is moulded by human hearts, Darkness/Nightshroud is implied to be created from TheSacredDarkness specifically ''because'' humanity thinks that Dark Is Evil.

* Taken UpToEleven in ''Anime/SpacePatrolLuluco'' with the Blackholians, a race with black holes for heads (quite literally as dark as you can get) [[spoiler:that set the entire series in motion so they could [[LiteralMetaphor break Luluco's heart]] ForTheEvulz.]]

* In ''Literature/WarriorCats'', when villains die, they go to a forest of pure darkness.

to:

* In ''Literature/WarriorCats'', when villains die, they go to a forest of pure darkness. And when they fight the Clans, there is a prophecy that describes the Dark Forest/Place of No Stars as "the darkness that lasts forever".


Added DiffLines:

** Also seen with the characters' names: Darkstripe is evil, Darktail is evil, Blackstar [[HeelFaceTurn starts out]] as evil, and Blackclaw isn't a particularly nice cat and tends to support Hawkfrost. [=ShadowClan=] cats have the worst record for having evil cats, and Secrets of the Clans made their founder Shadow the aggressive and unpleasant one of the original four leaders, though ''Literature/WarriorsDawnOfTheClans' makes it more complicated.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/WingsOfFire'', even the nocturnal and darkness-associated [[=NightWings=]] think that DarkIsEvil, meaning that when Arctic complains about Foeslayer's name for her son (Darkstalker) being NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast, she responds that it shows him as a hero fighting the darkness. The [=NightWings=] themselves [[DarkIsEvil can]] [[DarkIsNotEvil vary.]]

* PeterPaysTribute has the Gray God, god of revenge.
* The Dark Faery court from Melissa Marr's ''WickedLovely'' series. Although, this is possibly a subversion - they are more cruel than evil and need to be to survive. They are essencially emotional parasites, but Irial truly loved Niall and Leslie (although he was very cruel to them, using Leslie as an emotional conduit and stripping her of emotion and free wiil and allowing his servants and guards to both phsically and sexually abuse Niall), and although Gabriel comes into the 'abusing Niall' category, although only physical, he was NOT one of the fey who raped Niall - this is a common misunderstanding - and can be incredibly kind to his halfling children. Niall himself comes more under DarkIsNotEvil, although the injustices of the past push him more and more towards the moral grey area Iri and Gabe occupy.
* Prevalent in MadeleineLEngle books, starting with ''AWrinkleInTime'', where the Black Thing covers the world of Camazotz and threatens the planet Earth. In later books, the Echthroi (repeatedly refered to as "the powers of darkness") also gain an association with a horrible sound and a disgusting smell.
