*** 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. ''DissidiaFinalFantasy'' takes this all the way to DarkIsNotEvil.

* In ''Theatre/PoseidonsFury'' at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal's Islands of Adventure]], darkness can be expected whenever the attraction's villain, Lord Darkenon, shows up (as his name would imply). In contrast, Poseidon always carries a bright aura around him.

** 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.

* Played straight in ''Series/DoctorWho'', where there are the White Guardian and the Black Guardian. The White Guardian is the epitome of good and dresses in white clothing, the Black Guardian is the epitome of evil and dresses in black clothing.

*''VideoGame/Bayonetta'':
** The titular character along with the Umbra Witches, [[DarkIsNotEvil avert]] this, but the demons they work with play it straight. In fact, every witch makes a [[DealWithTheDevil pact]] with a demon in order to gain power, but when the witch dies [[DraggedOffToHell Inferno claims their soul]]
** The Angels of the franchise [[LightIsNotGood are just as bad as the demons]]. So in hindsight, [[GodAndSatanAreBothJerks BOTH light AND dark are evil!]] Though the Lumen Sages have been on good terms with the Angels and at least one of them [[LightIsGood is good]]

* {{Bionicle}} plays this straight, but also subverts it: every character in the Matoran Universe has an inner balance of light and shadow. Those characters that tap into their dark side or are drained of their inner light turn evil as a result, gaining shadow-based powers and becoming darker in their coloration. At the same time, thanks to ColorCodedElements, some element-based good guys also sport dark colors and a handful are almost completely black.
