* In ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'', anyone who drew the mark of [[BigBad Tarakudo]] on their body would gain demonic powers and slowly turn evil.

* The TropeNamer is the Book of Revelation in Literature/TheBible. All must accept the Mark of the Beast "in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark". Turns out not to be a good deal:

* In ''AngelSanctuary'', the kiss of a Satan leaves the mark of said satan behind. It seems to give the Satan power over the victim [[spoiler: as with Noise]], but can also be a sign that someone made a deal with a Satan [[spoiler: Arakune who turns out to be a traitor.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Raven gets some in the "all over the body" variety in season 4, apparently heralding the end of the world.
** More interestingly, when [[spoiler: Slade]] [[LikeABadassOutOfHell comes back]], he's got a glowing sigil in his forehead, to go with his new, fire-based powers and infernal army. When he loses the powers, the sigil disappears as well...
