The term "Dark Horse" has its origin in horse racing. A relatively unknown horse would be risky to place bets on, compared to a horse with a known track record, because the gamblers would be "in the dark," so when an unknown horse won a race it was called a "DarkHorseVictory." The term is also used in politics to describe a lesser known candidate who does better than expected in an election.

Generally, it's used to describe a side character making up part of the Ensemble, either a non-lead secondary character or a mere FlatCharacter, who can sometimes become [[PopularityPower unexpectedly popular]] with the fandom (sometimes, even more than the lead characters) depending on [[PeripheryDemographic who]] and [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff where]] the {{Fandom}} is, as well as what the other characters are like in comparison (for example, the hero is not as popular because they're too much The Everyman). Often, this can happen because the character has very few character traits, allowing fans to imagine this character to have traits that they like. The EnsembleDarkHorse can sometimes be viewed as the character equivalent of a CultClassic.
