* ''Film/PracticalMagic'' has motherly Sally (light) and seductive Gillian (dark). That goes double for the movie adaptation. In fact, a quote in the book used to describe them sums up this trope quite nicely (albeit poetically):

** While Rei is a MartialPacifist, Saeko's an AxCrazy BloodKnight. In her recount of how she'd once been accosted by a would-be rapist, Saeko told Takashi that realizing she had the upperhand and [[http://www.mangareader.net/170-11327-18/high-school-of-the-dead/chapter-17.html seeing his fear was exhilarating for her.]] Which incited her to beat him within an inch of his life. By contrast, when Rei was given the opportunity to kill Shidou (whom she loathes), [[http://www.mangareader.net/170-11324-24/high-school-of-the-dead/chapter-14.html seeing the fear in his eyes]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/170-11324-27/high-school-of-the-dead/chapter-14.html had the opposite effect.]] ** This is also reflected in their ongoing LoveTriangle with Takashi, with Rei being the "Betty" to Saeko's "Veronica". As such, Rei is the [[ChildhoodFriend childhood friend]]/[[GirlNextDoor girl-next-door]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/170-11322-38/high-school-of-the-dead/chapter-12.html with a crush]], whereas Saeko prefers to [[http://www.mangareader.net/170-11326-25/high-school-of-the-dead/chapter-16.html let her sex appeal do the talking]] and [[http://www.mangareader.net/170-11331-16/high-school-of-the-dead/chapter-21.html flaunts it.]] ** Which is further reflected by the difference in the way they dress. Rei wears her school uniform, with knee and elbow pads for protection. Saeko modified hers to include: garter belts, lacey black thigh-high stockings and stiletto-heeled boots, along with a matching mini-skirt with a split seam so high, it flashes her panties when she walks. When Rei and the others [[http://www.mangareader.net/170-57442-30/high-school-of-the-dead/chapter-27.html see what she's wearing]], Rei explodes: -->'''Rei: (incredulous)''' "What the heck is THAT!?

** In season 4, there is a distinct light and dark contrast between Oz's two love/lust interests - his long time girlfriend Willow and fellow Werewolf Veruca, which plays every femme fatale trick in the book, down to the ContraltoOfDanger. [[spoiler: ironically, by the time Willow loses her next love interest - Tara, she goes through a 'very'' dark phase.]] ** ''Series/{{Angel}}'' also had a take on this trope with Wesley's love interests - Fred (light) and Lilah (dark). Lilah herself lampshades this quite often.
