** Mother Gothel of ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' dark hair, dark grey eyes, deep red dress and a black cloak (which is even more noticeable in contrast to Rapunzel, with her blonde locks, bright green eyes and bright purple dress). She's even shown blocking out the tower's natural light sources and snuffing out candles Rapunzel had lit during her VillainSong.

** Averted with Tolkien's Dark Elves, the Moriquendi. While "Dark Elf" has come to mean evil in nearly every subsequent HighFantasy, the Moriquendi are simply Elves that never went to Aman and never saw the light of the Two Trees of Valinor. They're just as good, if not better, than any other group of Elves and are even represented by one of the most popular Elves ever, Legolas.

* [[TheSlenderManMythos The Slender Man]] wears a [[BadassInANiceSuit pitch-black suit]], is nigh-invisible in the dark ([[DaylightHorror and most of the time, the day too]]) has black CombatTentacles and [[TheBlank about as much expression as]] ComicBook/TheQuestion. It surprises no one at all that he's evil.

* While Ragna from ''VideoGame/{{BlazBlue}}'' follows the [[DarkIsNotEvil opposite of this trope]], the [[EldritchAbomination Black]] [[{{Orochi}} Beast]] responsible for the CrapsackWorld [[spoiler: and the source of Ragna's power]] embodies it. In Jubei's own words, it was "evil, the likes of which the world has never seen".

* In the ''VideoGame/JakAndDaxter'' series, Jak is an AntiHero with a SuperpoweredEvilSide, but that's the extent of any DarkIsNotEvil overtones. The world's magical PsychoSerum is black and purple '''DARK''' Eco, [[spoiler:Precursors]] [[TheCorruption corrupted]] by it become '''DARK''' Makers, [[AlwaysChaoticEvil Metal Heads]] live off of it, and the first game's [[BigBadDuumvirate Big Bads]] turned into [[OmnicidalManiac Omnicidal Maniacs]] after being exposed to it for too long. Out of the five people who underwent the Dark Warrior Program, only Jak got out alive... because he's [[TheChosenOne special]]. Both Jak ''and'' Daxter's [[SuperpoweredEvilSide dark alter-egos]] are AxCrazy.
* ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'':
** The TheHeartless are the manifestations of the darkness in capured hearts.

** 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.

** Pretty much an InvokedTrope with the Night Lords. Even before they fell to Chaos, their renegade behaviour and shocking psychopathic and sadistic tendencies earned them summary destruction.

* ''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.
