->''"He was dark, too. I don't mean dark-skinned. No, this was different. It was as if he was always walking in a shadow. I mean every step he took towards the light, just when you thought his face was about to be revealed, it wasn't. It was as if the lights dimmed... just for him."''

* Hilariously subverted in one ''TheFarSide'' comic which shows a reporter saying 'Our next guest is an organized crime informant. To protect his identity, we've placed him in a darkened studio. Let's go to him now.' while in the background we see the janitor entering the darkened studio and flicking on the light...

A face half-covered by shadow, very often through a partial LightningReveal. Good way to emphasize a character's sinister side. This can overlap with HiddenEyes.

* ''VideoGame/Undertale'' has an unusual variant with Asgore, the king of monsters. When you fight him, his face isn't visible because he's looking at the ground. [[GameFace It makes him look vicious]], but [[spoiler:it's really because he can't bear to look the player character, a child, in the eye as he tries to kill them]].

more appropriate example for Emerging From The Shadows
* In the ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' episode "Two to Tutor", Señor Senior Senior records a warning message about an upcoming heist by Junior and Shego (he'd gotten annoyed with them because, after he hired Shego to tutor Junior in villainy, she kept blowing him off whenever he tried to check in on them). He recorded the message in a dark room with [[ByTheLightsOfTheirEyes only his eyes showing]]... until Junior barged in and turned on the light. --> '''Junior:''' "Father? Why are you sitting in the dark?"
