As with any [[DuoTropes two character trope]], the two characters have to have some sort of relationship with each other, be it friends, family, love interests, or rivals for a love interest, so the two characters can be playing the traits directly off each other.

The dark feminine character is not always a villain or a [[MadonnaWhoreComplex whore]] but half of a good girl, bad girl or naughty and nice pair. Remember DarkIsNotEvil.

** There's also Princess Celestia and Princess Luna, who being the avatars of the sun and moon respectively, embody this trope quite well.
** ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E14CanterlotBoutique Canterlot Boutique]]'' introduces two unnamed characters referred to by [[WordOfGod the episode's writer]] as "Bright Pony" (Light) and "Goth Pony" ([[CaptainObvious Dark]]): two sisters who show an interest in Rarity's Princess Celestia inspired dress and Princess Luna inspired dress respectively.

* In the episode "Green Isn't Your Color" of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' we start off by learning that Fluttershy and Rarity spend time together at the spa every week. Rarity talks Fluttershy into modeling for her as a way to further Rarity's fashion career because nopony is going to have Fluttershy's elegance and poise. Fluttershy reluctantly agrees at Rarity's insistence even after Fluttershy isn't going to be modeling Rarity's designs. Over time Fluttershy becomes more uncomfortable with the attention but stays with it because she doesn't want to let Rarity down while Rarity becomes more jealous so much that she wants Fluttershy to fail and by the end they tell each other how they were feeling and strengthen their friendship.

* ''Manga/CardCaptorSakura'' gives us a very literal example, in the form of the Light and Dark cards. This is emphasized in their appearance: Light wears a white dress, wears her long hair curly, and the tips of her crown curve outward. Meanwhile, Dark wears a black dress, wears her long hair straight, and the tips of her crown curve more inward. They are always to be kept together, and request that Sakura seal them together.

* In ''Series/{{Penny Dreadful}}'', there is an interesting take. One of the main protagonists, Vanessa Ives, has raven-black hair, wears black, and generally does dark colours. Yet, Mina Harker, whom the protagonists attempt to save [[spoiler:but has converted to evil]], is blonde and only wears white.



* This trope applies to [[MesopotamianMythology Ishtar]] and her twin sister Ereshkigal. Ishtar represents life and fertility, while Ereshkigal represents death and sterility. Some scholars think they may, in fact, have at one point very early in Mesopotamian history been two aspects of the same goddess before becoming two separate entities.
