Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/WolfHall'' uses natural and period lighting, meaning that at night, sets are lit by candles and lanterns as they would have been in Tudor times. This is used to excellent effect when Thomas Cromwell interrogates Anne Boleyn's accused lovers, the ones who had mocked Cardinal Wolsey's death, in the final episode--Mark Rylance may not [[AdaptationalAttractiveness look as naturally evil as Cromwell is said to in the novels]], but the sight of his face half-hidden in the shadows is quite menacing.

* {{BIONICLE}} ''loved'' this trope. Almost every single promo image featured a character's face, usually the antagonist's, in the background either half-covered in shadow (sometimes dust or fog), or blended with an image of the current location.

* ''BreakingBad'' uses this extremely often. This fits with the show's themes of double lives, and the subject matter of ProtagonistJourneyToVillain.
** Its PrequelSeries ''BetterCallSaul'' follows suit.
