* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': Wilson Fisk primarily wears all-black suits for the first part of season 1. He later starts wearing an even fancier gray suit after he begins a relationship with [[LightIsGood Vanessa, who is often wearing a white dress to contrast Fisk.]] Likewise, Fisk is fond of a painting of a white background which he says embodies his loneliness.

* Both subverted '''and''' played straight with Raven from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. ''She's'' not evil, but she ''is'' part demon, and that's the side of the family her powers come from. This means she has to maintain incredibly strict self-control, especially while ''using'' said powers, lest she lose control of them or, worse, unleash her SuperpoweredEvilSide.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}}'', BigBad SorcerousOverlord Mumm-Ra is usually a grey, red-eyed, withered little HumanoidAbomination in ShapeshifterDefaultForm, but his personal [[TankGoodness tank]] and the weaponry and armor he possesses in OneWingedAngel form are deep black and chased with TronLines.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' has Kevin Levin, who wears dark colored clothing, however after his HeelFaceTurn as a teenager in black, this trope is more like DarkIsNotEvil.

* Agent 47 from the ''VideoGame/{{Hitman}} series is defined by his signature black suit and red tie. Of course it can be changed via disguise, but it's that suit which makes him most iconic. Indeed he's a very dark character, who can kill effortlessly and get away with it without batting an eye.

* It's easy to find where Judas is in the Art/SistineChapel's version of the ''Last Supper'', you just need to pick out the apostle with the black beard, dark clothes, and shadow-framed face.

* The ''Videogame/FireEmblem'' series uses this often alongside LightIsGood, especially in the earlier games in the series. Dark mages/sorcerers/shamans often serve as the the series' villains, especially so in ''Videogame/FireEmblemJugdral,'' where there's an entire {{cult}} of evil dark mages, from which the game's BigBad hails from, bent on resurrecting their dark god in order to bring an era of suffering upon the continent. And in combat, dark mages most often [[ElementalRockPaperScissors take extra damage from light magic being used against them]], and deal less damage to light magic users in return.

* ''Franchise/CthulhuMythos'': Among the many [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm avatars]] of the evil god Nyarlathotep are the Black Man and the Black Pharaoh. No, not someone with an African appearance. His skin is described as ''literally'' looking pitch black, like the light was sucked out of it.
