* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'', after being gaining the symbiote, Peter's costume is changed to how it looked in the [[Film/SpiderMan3 third movie]]--a black and silver version of it's regular appearance. Then as the symbiote exerts more control over Peter's behavior, the suit gradually transforms into it's design from the comics, with the webbing fading away and the spider insignia becoming larger.

* In ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha'', [[spoiler:[[ArcherArchetype Atalanta's]]]] clothes turn black (and {{Stripperific}}) and her hair turns grey after activating her second Noble Phantasm, [[spoiler:[[OneWingedAngel Agrius Metamorphosis]]]]. She normally hates using this, since it [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity drives her insane]], but the events of the War [[SanitySpillage take a toll on her psyche]]...

* ''Series/DoctorWho''
** "The Keeper of Traken": kind, generous, good Counsel Tremas, with his white beard, hair, and robes, sees an odd-looking grandfather clock in the middle of the room. He goes over to touch it. OhCrap. Bad plan. It's TheMaster's TARDIS, and out comes the Master, cackling "[[GrandTheftMe A new body, at last!]]" Tremas de-ages, his hair and beard shortening and turning black, and gets a spiffy new black outfit. Why hello there, new Master.
** This was Creator/ColinBaker's idea for the Sixth Doctor's outfit, which was to have him wearing a velvet black coat to symbolize the fact that his incarnation was DarkerAndEdgier. But showrunner John Nathan-Turner instead went with the horrid [[ImpossiblyTackyClothes multicolor coat of colors]], and the rest is history.
*** However, there is a bit of a silver lining to this, as Baker's idea for a black ensemble would eventually happen in the form of the Ninth Doctor's outfit, which was a black ensemble, complete with a leather jacket. And the Ninth Doctor is arguably the darkest incarnation of the Doctor, as seen in episode like "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E6Dalek Dalek]]". Ironically, "Dalek" was adapted from a Sixth Doctor Big Finish audio story called "Jubilee", which has been widely acclaimed by fans, and is by all means, a dark story ([[OverlyLongGag Unless if you're talking about his coat of colors]]).

** The normally black-clad antagonist [[CatGirl Sailor Tin Nyakano]] only gets partially purified by Sailor Moon, resulting in a half-black and half-white costume.

* While she's first introduced in the evil persona, this is the case for Princess Luna/Nightmare Moon in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic.'' As the good Princess Luna, she has a dark blue coat and a lighter blue mane. As the evil Nightmare Moon, her coat is black and her mane becomes darker and even more nebulous than usual (when she first transforms back, her mane is light blue and looks more like hair, but in her subsequent appearances, it's darker and flows more like Celestia's).

** In ''Supergirl #3'', Supergirl was exposed to black kryptonite and she was split into her normal self and an evil (and oversexed) alternate personality that wore a black-and-silver version of her normal costume. The black costume returned in a later ''Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica'' storyline where a battle with the Omega Man accidentally reawakened the Dark Supergirl persona within her.

This trope is [[TropeNamer named]] for Music/TheRollingStones song "Paint It Black", although the song itself is completely unrelated to the trope. It is also unrelated to RonTheDeathEater, formerly known as the ''other'' thing named after the same song ("Paint the Hero Black"), which involves more than a costume change.

* GenreSavvy ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' players expected the worst when, in the game's third act, Anders' robe turned black. They were right.
