** In the sequel, it is revealed that [[BigBad Hazama]] / Terumi Yuuki is this as well by virtue of his [[BadassInANiceSuit nice, black suit]]. [[RobotGirl Mu]]-[[YouAreNumberSix 12]], who calls people by expository titles, refer to Hazama as "The True Evil", indicating that he is even worse than the Black Beast itself. (Those who have played the story up until that point probably gloss over this as a LateArrivalSpoiler, though, because they've already seen what Hazama [[BreakingSpeech is capable of]] [[BreakTheCutie first hand]].)

[[spoiler: It's pretty noticeable when Terumi re-assumes his true form after taking back the Susanoo unit in the fourth game, and it's literally pitch black in every area with the only alternate colors being his green highlights.]]

His daughter, Cersei, adopts his style of dress when [[spoiler: she, an already unpleasant person, descends over the MoralEventHorizon and into complete irredeemable evil and kills hundreds of people in the burning of the Sept of Baelor]].

** While it can be that DarkIsNotEvil in later games, the Dark Magic in FireEmblemJugdral and the people who use it, the [[ReligionOfEvil Lopt Sect]], are very evil, although in Thracia 776, you can recruit an ex-clergyman.

*** This deserves further clarification--the original IV equates dark-elemental abilities with TheDarkSide, even having the dark-elemental protagonist's "Spirit" score drop as he levels up and becomes more hardened. As part of the plotline, he's eventually required to give up his powers and LevelDrain with light-elemental abilities. ''FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears'' goes a more balanced route--having been unable to completely purge his dark side, the hero is ultimately forced to accept and control it. ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' takes this all the way to DarkIsNotEvil.

* The Hel element in ''VideoGame/{{Boktai}}'' is always evil. Period. While it ''can'' be used for good, it's implied to be much weaker (since it is the power of hatred), and there is the constant chance that it will corrupt it's user for good which only gets higher each and every time it's used.

* A running theme of ''PhantasyStar'' quadrilogy: dark is evil and is [[MoreThanMindControl likely a responsible for humanoid races doing irrational things.]] In ''PhantasyStarIV'', a GuestStarPartyMember who uses wide arreys of dark magic (in the setting where no good guy can) turns out to be more than what he looks.

* In each season of ''Franchise/PrettyCure'', the BigBad always has a [[CastingAShadow darkness]] motif that puts [[Franchise/KingdomHearts Ansem]], '''[[MemeticMutation Seeker of Darkness!]]''', to the point that the [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure first]] BigBad was often put in {{Fansub}}s and even the short-lived English dub as the Dark King.

Though that does not rule out some DarkIsNotEvil allies (mostly those through HeelFaceTurn), like [[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Cure Passion]] and [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Cure Beat]].

*** Dark, the English name of one of the 18 elements in the series, was localized directly from "Evil", as the type is known in Japanese (hence why many Dark moves involve [[CombatPragmatist doing immoral things like stealing or lying]] or having "bad thoughts"). It's frequently subverted, though, as Dark-types are shown to be capable of being good natured, contrary to what their Pokédex entries may imply[[labelnote:*]]such as Spiritomb being 108 spirits bound to a stone for misdeeds, Hoopa Unbound being a large and brutish thief, and Yveltal being the ''harbinger of death''[[/labelnote]]. They do, however, often require more effort to max out their happiness then some other species of Pokemon.

** In the Japanese version of ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers of Time/Darkness/Sky'', [[spoiler: the first BigBad is known as Darkness Dialga. The US version instead translated it as [[PrimalFear Primal Dialga]]]]. The [[spoiler: BadFuture]] is also distinctly associated with darkness.
*** [[spoiler:[[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Darkrai_(Mystery_Dungeon_2_character) Darkrai]]. Freaking Darkrai. Did I mention he tells you to go kill yourself?]]
*** Also, "Dark", the English name of one of the 18 elements common to all Pokémon, was localized directly from "Evil", as the type is known in Japanese. This explains why many moves of the Dark-type involve [[CombatPragmatist doing immoral things like stealing or lying]] or having "bad thoughts". Though the type had relation to darkness even in the original games, such as Eevee evolving into Umbreon at night.
