Added DiffLines:
[[folder: Comic Books ]] * ComicBook/{{Tomboy}}: A very unique example of the trope. The magical girl elements are a result of a combination of the main characters hallucinations and the fact that she's a fan of an in-universe, more traditional magical girl, Princess Cherry Cherry. The princess herself becomes a sort of dark magical girl as Addison sees hallucinations [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane (or maybe visions?)]] of Princess Cherry Cherry encouraging her to seek bloody vengeance for the murder of her boyfriend and his dad, and telling her to transform when enraged or in danger.

* Syalla from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates''. [[{{expy}} Similarities]] with ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening's'' Tharja aside, she turns out to be a rather creepy girl with an extreme case of NoSocialSkills and rather disturbing habits and powers - but who deep down [[IJustWantToBeLoved yearns for love and affection]], specially from the Avatar. Her talks with her father Tsukuyomi drive the point further, as she openly denies being NotGoodWithPeople but he realises that she's lying.

The abilities of the DarkMagicalGirl are often polar opposites to the MagicalGirl. She is also usually faster, smarter, and more ruthless than the MG, making her the primary obstacle to the MG's triumph. Younger {{Dark Magical Girl}}s tend to be {{Little Miss Badass}}es, even if they are a CuteWitch. If she is a MagicalGirlWarrior, she's frequently a LadyOfWar. One common way of signalling a DarkMagicalGirl is that her outfit is usually slightly [[CostumeExaggeration more fetishy]] and [[ElegantGothicLolita dark]], which might explain why a HeelFaceTurn doesn't always mean a switch in costume.

May also come in pack with DarkIsNotEvil once she did FaceHeelTurn, because not only she wears dark clothes but also control dark powers, and after her FaceHeelTurn, would use her dark powers for the side of good.

* Charmcaster from ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'', the antithesis to MagicalGirl Gwen. In the third series, ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'', it turns out that [[spoiler: her whole motive for being evil is to gain enough power to free her home dimension from a tyrannical being that killed her parents and left her lonely and bitter. She ends up developing a typical Magical Girl-Dark Magical Girl bond with Gwen as well, and even when she relapses later, Gwen is still insistent on helping her toward goodness.]] [[WhatCouldHaveBeen At one point, Gwen could have had an anime spin-off for CN Asia]], in which Charmcaster would have finally gone full-circle with this trope.

Remove the Films — Live Action folder. Film The Craft misuse it (if all of them are this trope then it's just Black Magician Girl, as this trope is about foil character. The other two violate Examples Are Not Arguabale and just read like shoehorn.
[[folder: Films -- Live Action]] * The girls in ''Film/TheCraft'' are all driven to practice dangerous magic by personal trauma. Sarah [[SelfHarm self-harms]] and suffers from mental disturbances tied to her latent powers, Nancy lives in a trailer with her mother and abusive stepfather, Rochelle suffers racist harassment by the school's AlphaBitch, and Bonnie has severe burn scars all over her body. * The Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse arguably portrays SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} as the SpearCounterpart of this trope, at least in ''Film/{{Thor}}'', before he becomes more outright villainous in ''Film/TheAvengers''. He's significantly more sympathetic than he was in the comics, and a big part of his motive for trying to seize power is to earn the respect of the people who underestimated him. This stems from the ''massive'' inferiority complex he developed growing up as TheUnfavourite of his father, as well as from the revelation that [[spoiler:he's a Frost Giant, a member of the race he was raised to hate]]. -->''I never wanted the throne! I only ever wanted to be your equal!'' * Likewise, Anakin Skywalker is arguably portrayed as a male example in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels, specifically in the latter half of ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' and the first half of ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith''. As with many other examples of this trope, a big part of his motive is fear of being alone. He was taken from his mother at a young age to be raised in the restrictive Jedi Order, and he doesn't see her again until she gets killed by Tusken Raiders. His love for Padmé also plays a big part in his transition to TheDarkSide - he's forced to keep his relationship secret and later has a premonition of her dying. Afraid of losing another loved one, he seeks guidance and comfort from the BigBad, like {{Dark Magical Girl}}s so often do. Of course, the BigBad is just using him as a pawn. TheDarkSide only serves to further alienate Anakin from other people and is ultimately the cause of Padmé's death that he was so worried about. And by the end of ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', Anakin has moved beyond this trope and become [[DarthWiki/DarthVader a straight-up baddie]], much like Loki did. [[/folder]]
