** In the first season, [[spoiler: Azalie Caith Sith is the rare BigBad version. She once was a ChildProdigy in magic but her affections for her SexyMentor Childman were, at some point, rejected. To ease her grief, she turned to her studies and became the most powerful and ambitious sorceress in the [[WizardingSchool Tower of Fangs]]... and then she turned herself into the EldritchAbomination Bloody August via an experiment, leading to her adoptive younger brother Krylancelo/Orphen's quest to save her. But even in her monstrous form, she keeps her [[BrokenBird deeply wounded]] human feelings, torn between her love for Childman and her desire for revenge against the Tower for trying to kill her rather than redeem her.]]

* In ''Anime/CorrectorYui'', Ai Shinozaki aka Corrector Ai takes the role of corrector, firstly and mostly for her own goals, and not because she wants to save ComNet as Yui or the other Software Programs. Said goal? [[spoiler: She wants to help her comatose mom, a talented programmer whose conscience has been lost online for so long, that from one moment or another, she could be declared clinically dead if she never regains it.]] So thanks to the hardships she's lived, she is aloof and quiet and prefers to work alone, and it takes Yui a ''lot'' to reach for her...

* Rhajat 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 parents drive the point further: her father realises that she's lying when she denies being NotGoodWithPeople, and as she speaks to her mother [[spoiler: she focuses on trying to FindTheCure for an illness outbreak ''despite'' being mistakenly believed to have caused said illness with her magic.]]

She's [[LittleMissBadass young]], [[BlackMage a talented magic user]], opposes the Order of Heroes and the Kingdom of Askr, was deeply marked by a pareent's legacy (her dad, in her case), is explicitely said to be [[SourOutsideSadInside a deeply sad girl under her cold facade]], etc.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' has Asajj Ventress. The only reason she fought for the Separatists seemed to be her starving for Dooku's approval, her greatest fear is being left with nothing, and she gradually turned away from the Dark Side, after Dooku abandoned her. The 'MagicalGirl' she's foiling is Ahsoka, a jedi padawan with similar approval seeking from her own master.

The abilities of the Dark Magical Girl 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 Girls tend to be {{Little Miss Badass}}es, even if they are a CuteWitch. If she is a MagicalGirlWarrior, she's frequently a LadyOfWar. Dark Magical Girl outfits are often [[ColorCodedForYourConvinience color-coded]] [[ElegantGothicLolita black]] to contrast [[PinkHeroine the heroines' pink]], and are usually slightly [[CostumeExaggeration more fetishy]], which might explain why a HeelFaceTurn doesn't always mean a switch in costume. May also come in pack with DarkIsNotEvil once she did HeelFaceTurn, because not only she wears dark clothes but also control dark powers, and after her HeelFaceTurn, would use her dark powers for the side of good.

Added DiffLines:

* There are two women in ''LightNovel/SorcererStabberOrphen'' that fit in the trope:
** In the first season, [[spoiler: Azalie Caith Sith is the rare BigBad version. She once was a ChildProdigy in magic but her affections for her SexyMentor Childman were, at some point, rejected. To ease her grief, she turned to her studies and became the most powerful and ambitious sorceress in the [[WizardingSchool Tower of Fangs]]... and then she turned herself into the EldritchAbomination Bloody August via an experiment, leading to her adoptive younger brother Krylancelo/Orphen's quest to save her. But even in her monstrous form, she keeps her [[BrokenBird deeply wounded]] human feelings, torn between her love for Childman and her desire for revenge against the Tower for trying to kill her rather than redeem her.]]
** The second season has Esperanza, a beautiful spellcaster with [[EvilRedhead blazing red hair]], the sad stare of a caged bird (according to Cleao), and a mysterious attitude, who follows Orphen around and messes with his plans. [[spoiler: She and her father have taken a DealWithTheDevil to save Esperanza's sister, and as a result she's been emotionally shattered.]]

The DarkMagicalGirl is this fear personified, molded into a dark parody of the MagicalGirl. Where the MagicalGirl is a force for good and light, the DarkMagicalGirl's virtues have all been twisted to serve evil.

A DarkMagicalGirl doesn't have that. For her, ParentalAbandonment is ''not'' funny or [[ConvenientlyAnOrphan convenient]]. Her parents are absent at best and [[AbusiveParents abusive]] at worst, and [[BrokenBird though she's smart, she can't understand why her life has turned out as it is]]. She doesn't have real friends or exploits past the academic (if she goes to school). This is because she either doesn't know how to [[NoSocialSkills communicate socially]] or she's already lost her friends and wants to avoid making new ones, the loss of which [[TheCynic will just bring her further pain]]. If she seems outwardly creepy, it's another unfortunate reason people avoid her, which only leads to her being further [[LonersAreFreaks perceived as evil or otherwise abnormal]].

She often acts as TheDragon to the BigBad, from whom [[WellDoneSonGuy she may crave approval]] as a parental figure. Inevitably, the DarkMagicalGirl will fight the Magical Girl, acting as her EvilCounterpart or ShadowArchetype, her motivation being [[WellDoneSonGuy acknowledgment]] from the BigBad or [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy]] of everything the heroine has that she does not.

She [[DontYouDarePityMe doesn't want the Magical Girl's pity]], but the MG usually tries to reach out to her and gain her friendship regardless. A MagicalGirl symbolizes the triumph of virtue, justice, and ThePowerOfLove. A DarkMagicalGirl asks if there is redemption and salvation for the cursed and lost. MagicalGirl shows tend to come down on the idealist side of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism. So, the DMG [[RivalsTeamUp almost always gets converted to the good guys]] by the end. Once this happens, most {{Dark Magical Girl}}s tend to be fiercely loyal to the MagicalGirl heroine.

The DarkMagicalGirl is a subtrope of AntiVillain. Almost always a type II on the SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains. Not to be confused with the BlackMagicianGirl, and ''especially'' not the DarkActionGirl (who is quite different). Or [[Manga/YuGiOh Dark Magician Girl]] for that matter.

** ''Audioplay/StrikersSoundStageX'' gives us another DarkMagicalGirl, although her identity is a major spoiler: [[spoiler:Runessa Magnus, the former ChildSoldier from a CrapsackWorld, who fell under the influence of an interdimensional terrorist, seeing him as her father figure and carrying out his agenda even after his death. To this end, she becomes Teana's partner, allowing her to manipulate the investigation of her own crimes, but is eventually discovered and apprehended by Tea. Notably, RealityEnsues in this case, and Runessa doesn't get a GetOutOfJailFreeCard like the other examples but keeps serving her time in later installments--although Teana regularly visits her in prison, presumably, in an attempt to rehabilitate her]].
** This trope is subverted in ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'': Heidi E. S. Ingvalt is set up as a DarkMagicalGirl to Nanoha's daughter Vivio, but is [[LateArrivalSpoiler soon revealed]] to be the secret identity of Einhart Stratos, Vivio's fellow student from the local WizardingSchool. Granted, Einhart has a lot of archetypal DMG traits, such as loneliness, introversion, single-minded devotion to a purpose (the perfection of her ancestral martial art), and a rivalry with the main character (Vivio), but the two of them become close friends early in the story, skipping most of the usual magical girl foreplay.

Due to a combination of [[WordOfGod some unknown magical force]] and her own loneliness and jealousy, she [[FaceHeelTurn turns to evil]], gets a PlotRelevantAgeUp and [[GreenEyedMonster green eyes]], dons a [[EvilCostumeSwitch gothy, slightly bondagey outfit]], and is promptly [[SealedEvilInACan sealed away for a thousand years]]. When she escapes, she uses her powers to fight the even younger [[MagicalGirl Magical Filly]] sent unwittingly to redeem her, who defeats her with ThePowerOfFriendship and [[HeelFaceTurn reunites her]] with [[BigGood her sister]].

** Played with in ''Anime/VividStrike''. Unlike most {Dark Magical Girl}}s, Rinne actually has a previous connection with her MagicalGirl counterpart (being ChildhoodFriends) and [[HappilyAdopted her family]] is the one part of her life that ''isn't'' messed up. She also isn't working for evil forces and is instead driven by the fear that if she's isn't the strongest that she'll lose everything she cares about.
