* The indie game ''ThePath'' is a psychological horror game inspired by Little Red Riding Hood. You take one of six sisters based on the character (including innocent little Robin and gloomy {{Goth}} Ruby) on a path through "the woods". Despite you being instructed to "go to grandma's house, and don't stray from the path", you're ''supposed'' to wander off the path, confront the metaphorical (or sometimes literal) wolf, and quite possibly get scared out of your mind.

* They pull one with ''Film/WatershipDown''. The main story itself isn't the brightest, but the movie is darker.

* In the original "Literature/{{Rapunzel}}" FairyTale, the prince is blinded, and the heroine's SwissArmyTears restore his eyesight. In Disney's adaptation ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', of all places, the villain, in an odd moment of Grimification in an otherwise Disneyfied story, [[spoiler:''stabs and kills him'', and Rapunzel holds her dead lover in her arms before her tears bring him back to life]]. What's more is that the story really plays up the Freudian elements between Rapunzel and her stepmother - showing Gothel as a textbook emotional abuser. Additionally the stepmother [[spoiler: gets a [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath rather dark]] DeathByAdaptation]] when she just [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse disappeared]] from the original.

* Mostly averted in ''Literature/TimeLordFairyTales'', which recasts various European fairy and folktales in the {{Whoniverse}}, because ''Series/DoctorWho'' itself has plenty of terror and violence and most of the stories swap one grisly demise for a villain with its Whoniverse equivalent: Where the baddies in "Literature/AliBabaAndTheFortyThieves" get soaked in boiling oil to finish them off, "Andiba and the Four Slitheen" destroys its villains with vinegar, which they are fatally allergic to. But "Literature/{{Cinderella}} and the Magic Box" indulges in this when it's revealed that [[spoiler: the Lord of the castle and his court are vampires, and the Eleventh Doctor has sent her to the royal ball as a sort of Trojan horse, equipping her with the means to destroy them. All he tells her is to use the sonic screwdriver at midnight...]].

** ''Film/SuckerPunch'' takes this to its logical extreme by turning the story into a violent, hyper-sexualized action movie. Directed by [[Creator/ZackSnyder the same guy]] who did ''ThreeHundred'', ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' and the ''Film/DawnOfTheDead2004'' remake.

* SoundHorizon's 7th Story CD Märchen (German for "fairytale") is about [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin fairytales]]. They're quite dark, being based on the Grimm versions instead of the Disney versions, and then there's also a hint about there being a "real" side and a "fantasy/ lie" side to them and the fantastic events being metaphors for more mundane, but equally (or, in some cases, more) dark events (Idoko/Goldmary falling into a well, dying and her younger sister spreading the plague, for example).
