Keep in mind that stories where Light Is Not Good does not automatically enforce DarkIsNotEvil. In Fact, stories where DarkIsEvil and Light Is Not Good are commonplace to show that the light can be just as foul as darkness.

darkness. In addition, some stories may use BOTH LightIsNotGood and LightIsGood at the same time, with good light based characters calling the evil ones {{Hypocrites}}

This trope is ''not'' a ObviouslyEvil character such as a BedsheetGhost wearing white. To qualify a character must fit into two types:

* Has a attractive, and culturally good appearance like a youthful angel.
* The Villain uses powers traditionally thought of as good like Holy Magic.

Light and Dark are both [[LowestCosmicDenominator oversimplified metaphors]] for Good and Evil, not truly synonymous terms. Looking at the matter rationally, too much sunlight causes burns, sunstroke, skin cancer, and drought, which is bad; whereas nightfall and sufficient shade provide relief and rest, which is good. So, neither [[ElementalRockPaperScissors physical brightness nor physical shade]] can be all good or all bad. [[ElementalPowers Elements]] are properly value-neutral.

value-neutral. [[note]] It should be noted however that there's no reason to think Humans equate light with good and dark with bad for any reason other than ''nature instilling it in us since we cannot see in the dark.''[[/note]]

{{Crapsaccharine World}}s are often depicted as highly polished, brightly (sometimes too brightly, e.g. [[VideoGame/MirrorsEdge Mirror's Edge]]) lit, and cheerful almost to the point of cloying. Of course the true nature of the society is gradually revealed over the course of the narrative, making it an instance of this trope.

The mildest form of this Trope involves beautiful, charismatic villains dressed in white and surrounded by religious symbols. A step further features a villain who wields [[LightEmUp Light as an elemental power]]. Whether by technology or [[FunctionalMagic magic]], he can bend physical light to his whims, displaying such powers as [[BishieSparkle beauty-enhancing sparkles]] or an angelic glow, [[MasterOfIllusion optical illusions and holograms]], MindControl through LaserGuidedAmnesia, blinding flashes, and [[FrickinLaserBeams laser beams]]. For artistic contrast and further deconstruction, he might be opposed by a hero who uses [[CastingAShadow shadows and darkness]] as ElementalPowers.
