Has [[IThoughtItMeant nothing to do]] with [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami]] not being good, although RuleOfSymbolism makes him an example.

{{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.

This trope is ''not'' an ObviouslyEvil character such as a BedsheetGhost wearing white, although they may fall under BrightIsNotGood. To qualify a character must fit with what is culturally thought of light. A angel wearing bright clothes with WhiteMagic or a classical unirocn as the villains is a good example; a simple CorruptChurch cleric or a white-haired handsome youth simply using their attractiveness to get away with misdeeds is pushing it depending on who you ask; a clown wearing white makeup but otherwise not bright coloured, not attractive or not possessing holy powers is most definitely not. Someone is is beautiful but otherwise not light related in any way is definitely out. Add a sun ([[ThePowerOfTheSun powers]], jewelry, name, whatever), however, and we're listening.

This trope is ''not'' an ObviouslyEvil character such as a BedsheetGhost wearing white, although they may fall under BrightIsNotGood. 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.

{{Anti Hero}}es generally fall under DarkIsNotEvil rather than this Trope unless they're a KnightTemplar, for instance a ruthless ChurchMilitant who works with the good guys. Light Is Not Good is when a character is [[{{Villain}} directly bad, directly villainous]] -- and ''still'' has Light powers. Depending on characterization, [[AntiVillain they might be sympathetic]], perhaps [[WellIntentionedExtremist well-intentioned but horribly misguided]]. Or the person could be the most gleefully twisted bastard imaginable.
