Simply put, the EvilCounterpart to TheChick.

TheChick is usually TheHeart and is usually good at reading emotions and doing something positive, like making people feel better or resolving fights. The Dark Chick is much more selective about who can cry on her shoulder. While she may have a soft spot for the BigBad, TheHero, or another MoralityPet, to others she's nonchalant about their emotional well being. If she doesn't outright ignore other peoples feelings she may play on them for mind-games and manipulation.

If she gets a lot of screentime, she's probably on her way to replacing TheDragon as second in command (much to his chagrin) or is TheLeader of her QuirkyMiniBossSquad. She can be set up as a foil to TheHero for DatingCatwoman or generally adding [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence a layer of gender contrast to climatic encounters.]] If not, she'll just be stereotypically [[TokenGirl a girl]] and [[EvilCounterpart evil]], and stick around long enough for the DesignatedGirlFight.

The Dark Chick has a tendency to stand out from the rest of the FiveBadBand by their personality and motivations. If the other members are hardened warriors, she'll be more [[BunnyEarsLawyer aloof in her own world,]] or maybe even be [[PerkyFemaleMinion smiling at the situation.]] If the others are a QuirkyMiniBossSquad, she's probably the most [[IronLady ruthless and competent one of them all.]] If the others are in it ForTheEvulz, she may be in it for money, personal background issues, or love, leading the others to question her allegiances. It's fairly frequent that the other members of the organization really dislike them, but put up with them because they get results or are needed for some facet of the plan.

Her skill set may also stand out from the others too. If the others are on the frontlines she may be a support unit or a [[TheFace liaison expert]] or a spy. She's also typically good at convincing others to do what she wants, either through [[FemmeFatale feminine wiles,]] or as a no nonsense negotiator that people are afraid to have to deal with.

This character archetype almost always overlaps with at least one other. Most often, this is an EnigmaticMinion that is given a large amount of importance. A Dark Chick will often be TheBaroness, a DarkActionGirl, TheVamp, a FemmeFatale, a PerkyFemaleMinion, or an AlphaBitch (or any combination). Where TheChick represents wholesome traditional feminity, the Dark Chick is represents what traditional patriarchy may be less comfortable with as far as power and sexuality.

Usually the ''first'' FiveBadBand member prone to the HeelFaceTurn when they either realize that they just aren't fit for villainy or find that hooking up with TheHero would be even ''more'' fun. If the Dark Chick is romantically linked with the main villain this chance rises to [[HighHeelFaceTurn a near certainty.]]


TheChick + Dark Chick = DesignatedGirlFight

There are some pseudo-male examples that stand out from their team by the personality and motivational contrasts above, but without the gender contrast obviously in male organizations.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Garma Zabi in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' is about as close as you get to an evil version of TheHeart and is the most sympathetic of his team, however his sister Kycilia plays the Dark Chick role straighter as far as usurping TheDragon, manipulating people, and generally being a pain to deal with, combining with some traits of the EvilGenius.
** In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'', Nicol Amalfi is this to the {{Antivillain}}ous Le Creuset team. Combining NiceGuy with many traits commonly associated with TheEvilGenius, Nicol was definitely the odd one out on a team that consisted of a ManipulativeBastard, his [[TheStoic stoic]] [[TheDragon Dragon]], a HotBlooded {{Jerkass}}, and a DeadpanSnarker, none of whom would know "subtle" if it up and bit them.
** In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'', {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and [[PsychopathicManchild Psychopathic Girlchild]] Stella is the Dark Chick of the Extended trio. Just contrast her behaviour with that of [[SociopathicSoldier icy-cold]] [[EvilGenius Sting]], AxeCrazy [[TheBrute Auel]], or ManipulativeBastard [[TheDragon Neo Roanoke]].
* Ninja heir Kyoichi Kunugi in ''Manga/RealBoutHighSchool''. His nickname, "Kunoichi" (which means "female ninja"), drives the point home.
* Both Kanon Maldini and Nina Einstein (mix of this and EvilGenius) from ''Anime/CodeGeass'' fulfill this role for Schneizel El Britannia.
* Tayuya from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. Foul-mouthed, arrogant, and [[strike:one of]] ''the'' least effeminate ninja the Sound village have ever produced (and one of the only females), she hates her teammates at least as much as she hates the enemy. Despite that she's also the second-in-command of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Sound Four]] and a DarkActionGirl, based on the impressively kinetic face-punching she inflicts on the titular character.
** And Kin, also from Sound. Interestingly, she is the only character from said village who was not subject to any mutations. Pre-mortem, anyway.
** Later on there's Karin, who is part this and EvilGenius. Her teammates abilities are mostly purely offensive or defensive, but hers are based on tracking and analysis (with some stealth and an emergency healing power). She's also mostly there [[SubordinateExcuse because she wants to be with Sasuke]] ([[StalkerWithACrush a lot]]).
** [[PaperMaster Konan]] is this for Akatsuki: almost everyone else in the organization is based on offensive power (except Zetsu), her role is to be more on support and reconnaissance (though she eventually gets a chance to demonstrate her ''[[NotSoHarmlessVillain substantial]]'' fighting skills. Konan is also TheDragon to Pain who is the figurehead BigBad. She's the most normal of the Akatsuki, not having any particular appearance quirks, fixations, or sociopathic tendencies. She's driven out of a genuine belief that they'll make the world better, and out of the memory for her lost friend.
* In ''Manga/ChronoCrusade'', this role can either fall to Rizel (a DarkActionGirl whose tactics depend mainly on [[PeoplePuppets controlling people like puppets]] while the other warriors in the group are more direct) or to Shader (a PerkyFemaleMinion who doubles as the team's EvilGenius and rarely does any fighting--and, in fact, doesn't seem to even ''like'' fighting in the manga).
* Soi in ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' fulfills this role for the Seiryuu seishi. She's both TheDragon and a FemmeFatale, and is the most sympathetic villain, driven out of love for the wrong kind of person.
* In ''Manga/BlackCat'' Echidna Parass, [[VillainTeleportation Villainous Teleporter]] and LoveMartyr to TheBigBad serves this role among the [[FiveBadBand leadership]] of The Apostles Of The Stars. The only girl among the leaders, and present due to her crush on Creed, she's definitely the odd one out.
* Aaronerio Arrurei and Zommari Leroux are the Dark Chicks of Aizen's army in Manga/{{Bleach}}. Both are [[TokenMinority Token Minorities]] (EldritchAbomination and ScaryBlackMan respectively) both are far less than stable, even for Arrancar, and both are definitely weird.
* Yumi, NeutralFemale and ex-HookerWithAHeartOfGold is only a member of BigBad Shishio's group in Manga/RurouniKenshin because she's in love with the psycho (who does, in fact, reciprocate). She's more or less an AntiVillain is a group of villainous fighters, and serves as a CoolBigSis to TheDragon during most of her on screen appearances.
* Zoisite/Zoycite of the Shittenou in ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', especially in the anime's English dub where [[ShesAManInJapan she]] had some serious schadenfreude.
** Mimete from the Witches 5 in ''Anime/SailorMoon S''. She was definitely more concerned with meeting celebrities than villainous deeds. [[spoiler: Her constant failures led to Tellu eventually killing her by [[HoistByHisOwnPetard shutting the power off from a television program]] that increased her powers.]]
** Fisheye from the Amazon Trio. ShesAManInJapan also applies here.
** [=PallaPalla=] of the Amazoness Quartet.
** Esmeraude of The Black Moon Clan! She's vain, and she has a [[NoblewomansLaugh crazy laugh!]]
* [=LadyDevimon=] from both ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' and ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02''. In her first appearance she's the new Dragon to Piedmon after the other Dark Masters are eliminated, and both times she's really just there to have a DesignatedGirlFight with Angewomon.
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', the second Greed fills the role as a male version of the Dark Chick, [[spoiler:complete with a HeelFaceTurn]].
** Sloth is a straighter example in [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist the 2003 anime version]].
* ''Anime/YuGiOh'': Mai Valentine is this to Dartz's following the mental breakdown she suffered at Dark Marik's hands, being the only female member of his gang, as well as brainwashed. Among the Big 5, Crump fills this role, having a pathetic backstory and a truly strange obsession with penguins (although he's a NotSoHarmlessVillain when it comes to actually dueling).
* Most of the SmurfettePrinciple characters in the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' franchise:
** Poisonny and later Regine in ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure''.
** Viblis in ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure''.
** Karehaan and Moerumba are male examples in ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar'' since Ms. Shitataare is the EvilGenius and the Kiryuu twins are the {{Sixth Ranger}}s.
** Arachnea and later Hadenya in ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5''.
** Shibiretta in ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5''.
** Eas in ''Anime/FreshPrettyCure''. [[spoiler:Until her HeelFaceTurn.]]
** Sasorina in ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure''.
** Falsetto, another male example, in ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure'' since Seiren is TheDragon. [[spoiler:Until he is promoted as the final [[TheDragon Dragon]].]]
** Wolfrun, another male, in ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure'' since Majorina is the EvilGenius and he's one of the more good looking villains.
*** [[spoiler:Bad End Cure Peace of the Bad End Pretty Cures.]]
** Marmo and CampGay Leva in ''Anime/DokiDokiPrettyCure''.
** [[{{Greed}} Hosshiwa]] and [[LazyBum Namakelder]] share this role in ''Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure''. They play the StraightMan to [[ItsAllAboutMe Oresky]], who is TheBrute and considers them his sidekicks. [[DeadpanSnarker Both are not too happy about this]].
* Lady Kayura in RoninWarriors, who's brought on to the Dark Warlord team and is much more competent and capable than they are. They begin to resent her for always one upping her, but she doesn't seem to care.
* Miss Notch, the resident NinjaMaid of ''HollowFields''. She is actually [[BigBad Miss Weaver]]'s [[BewareTheSillyOnes most potentially dangerous underling]]: she's a more loyal [[TheDragon dragon]] than [[DragonWithAnAgenda Mr. Croach]], a more competent [[TheBrute brute]] than [[DumbMuscle Stinch]], and, unlike [[EvilGenius Miss Rickets]], [[spoiler:actually survives to the end]]. However, she also lacks malicious intent unlike the other Engineers, and follows Weaver solely out of BlindObedience.
* In ''KillLaKill'', Nonon Jakuzure is pretty obviously this in the FiveBadBand that rules Honnouji Academy. She's a tiny [[RoseHairedSweetie pink-haired]] girl with cutesey mannerisms - and [[BitchInSheepsClothing a mean streak a mile wide]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comicbooks]]
* ScarletWitch in the original [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Brotherhood of Evil Mutants]].
** Destiny in Mystique's New Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.
* The second Trickster in Franchise/TheFlash's Rogues. He's a TagalongKid who's one joke away from being freeze-rayed.
* Superboy-Prime never believed in the [[Franchise/GreenLantern Sinestro Corps']] cause. This lead to [[TheDogBitesBack betrayal motivated by revenge]].
* Wallace has two in the ''ComicBook/SinCity'' story, ''Hell And Back''. Blue Eyes poses as the friend to TheChick in order to seduce and kill him. Mariah is more hands-on and simply tries to kill him on the spot. There is also Maxine in that story but she works behind the scenes. All three women work for the same organization and make catty comments about each other quite a bit (Blue Eyes mostly does it in a seperate story).
* Amora, the Enchantress, a villain of [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor [=Thor=]]], particularly when she was in the original incarnation of the Masters of Evil.
* Moonstone is this on pretty much every team she's ever been on, including the heroic(ish) Thunderbolts squads. Even if the motives of the group as a whole are pure, Moonstone exists in a moral grey area at best.
* Grey Smurfette is this in ''ComicBook/TheSmurfs'' story "The Smurf Threat", though she only has one appearance and the most that she does is antagonize Smurfette into [[DesignatedGirlFight having a fight with her.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fanfic]]
* Slipstream on the Decepticon team from ''[[http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-fan-fiction/828948-transformers-meta-12.html Transformers Meta]]''.
* Dementia from ''Fanfic/MyLittleUnicorn''.
* [[spoiler: Mindy]] of the X-Trio in ''Fanfic/{{Pokeumans}}'', who uses deception and subterfuge more than her action-based male CoDragons.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* Film/JamesBond has run into quite a few:
** Miss Taro in ''Film/DrNo''.
** Pussy Galore in ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}''.
** Fiona Volpe in ''Film/{{Thunderball}}''.
** Helga Brandt in ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice''.
** Rosie Carver in ''Film/LiveAndLetDie''.
** Andrea Anders in ''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun''.
** Magda in ''Film/Octopussy''.
** Jenny Flex in ''Film/AViewToAKill''.
** Xenia Onatopp in ''Film/GoldenEye'', who was also TheBrute.
** Cigar Girl in ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough''.
** Miranda Frost in ''Film/DieAnotherDay''.
** Valenka in ''Film/CasinoRoyale''.
* Animala, a {{Petting Zoo Pe|ople}}rson of indeterminate animal heritage (she's supposed to be made from four different forest creatures and acts most like a {{Catgirl}}) in ''Film/TheLostSkeletonOfCadavra.''
* In ''Film/BackToTheFuture Part II'', Griff's gang has "Spike", the girl who asks Marty Jr, if he has the 'scrot' to pull the robbery with them, and then grabbing him by the balls and lifting him off the ground.
* The Baroness from ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra''.
* LexLuthor has a fondness for [[MinionWithAnFInEvil unreliable]] Dark Chicks throughout the Film/{{Superman}} films.
* Selina Kyle in TheDarkKnightRises. She's a spy working for Bane initially, using her feminine wiles either as a meek maid in Wayne Manor or a FemmeFatale party girl, to get where she wants and his [[NominalImportance only named accomplice.]] She's not above killing but has a soft spot for her one friend and children, and eventually pulls a HeelFaceTurn after falling in love with Bruce Wayne.
* Valeria from RobotHolocaust.
* ''TheCrow'' has an interesting example in Myca (Bai Ling), the BigBad's sexy Chinese half-sister (who was not in the original comic). She at first appears to be in the film only for {{Fanservice}}, and tends to come off as TheDitz because at first she makes a show of barely being able to speak English ("I like the pretty lights"). But she proves to be a MagicalAsian, having dark knowledge about the occult and black magic that the other gang members can't possibly understand - and it is she who divines that the titular black bird following Eric Draven around is the source of his zombie-like power, and [[NearVillainVictory nearly helps her half-brother triumph]] by kidnapping the bird, rendering Eric mortal and capable of bleeding when he gets shot.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* [[spoiler: Makala]] in the third book of ''Literature/TheBladeOfTheFlame'' trilogy is the only villain who's [[EnemyWithin not evil by choice]]
* Diana Ladris from ''Literature/{{Gone}}'' plays this part in Caine's FiveBadBand
* Amycus and Alecto Carrow, a pair of sadistic twins who were part of Voldemort's Death Eaters in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series. Also Bellatrix Lestrange, as there aren't many fully-fledged female Death Eaters. Her sister Narcissa Malfoy tries to stay on the edges until her son and husband are in trouble.
* Koman, a sociopathic telepath who joined up ForTheEvulz in a FiveBadBand where everyone else has an objective, is the Dark Chick it Creator/DavidEddings' ''Literature/TheRedemptionOfAlthalus''. In ''TheElenium'' [[TheVamp Princess Arissa]] plays this role to the Five Bad Band headed up by [[BigBadWannabe Annias]] and [[DragonInChief Martel]].
* Molly, from ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', who [[spoiler:falls off the "reformed warlock" wagon pretty hard to become TheDreaded in Chicago]] after ''Literature/{{Changes}}''. Heartbreakingly, she did it to emulate ''Harry''.
* ''Literature/TrappedOnDraconica'': Zarracka is the only member of Team Evil without a set role. At one point she's a informant and another she's a SuperSoldier. Far more petty and less stoic than the others.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* In ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', the villainesses tend to mix this with DarkActionGirl.
** Scorpina in the original ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''.
** Vypra in ''Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue''.
** Camille in ''Series/PowerRangersJungleFury''.
* And in ''Franchise/SuperSentai'', they have a lot! (The list is as long as that for [[TheDragon Dragons]])
** Farrah in ''Bioman''
** Zonnette in ''Carranger''
** Shibolena
** Shelinda in ''Gingaman'', she has reputation for most revealing outfit in the series.
** Venus in ''Gogofive''
** Lira
** Tsuetsue
** And conversely, Lamie in ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger''. In fact, since ''Series/BattleFeverJ'', it became the norm for the villains to have at least one of these in the team, and the same holds true for the ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' franchise.
* Mio Kuroki from ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon''.
* Drusilla from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', especially as part of The Whirlwind, amongst Angelus, Darla, and Spike.
* While she isn't seen very much, ''Series/DegrassiTheNextGeneration'' gives us Amy, who is mostly known for being Sean's rebound and [[LaserGuidedKarma giving Jay gonorrhea]], which he then gave to Alex and Emma.
* On ''Series/{{Leverage}}'', Parker is the Dark Chick of the AntiVillain [[VillainProtagonist Protagonists.]] The team all have, by season 2 at least, the desire help people for its own sake. But most of the crew are very sane and, although they enjoy the thrill of the chase, they really, ''really'' enjoy spending their earnings and living the high life. They also tend to be able to lead relatively normal lives aside from the addiction to con-jobs. Parker, meanwhile, is the loon who enjoys having and fondling money itself, rather than spending any of it. She enjoys the job itself more than any vacation and she has no understanding of any kind of life outside of committing crimes for their own sake.
* Franchise/KamenRider
** ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'' has the Queen Fangire.
** ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' has [[Series/KamenRider Bee Woman]].
** ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'' has Wakana Sonozaki.
** ''Series/KamenRiderOOO'' has [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Mezool/Mezul/Mezuru]].
** ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' has [[spoiler: Sonoda Sarina aka Scorpion Zodiarts, and Erin Suda/Aquarius Zodiarts]].
* ''Series/{{Revenge}}'': If you go by AlternativeCharacterInterpretation, Amanda Clarke (real Emily Thorne) is this to Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke.

[[folder:Pinball]]
* General Kala of ''Pinball/FlashGordon,'' who flanks Ming the Merciless on the left slingshot bumper.

[[folder: Professional Wrestling]]
* The woman in the page photo is [[Wrestling/{{Ivory}} WWE's Ivory]] when she was a member of the MoralGuardians {{Heel}} PowerStable Right to Censor[[note]]A TakeThat to the real-life Parents Television Council, who had been making trouble for WWE[[/note]] in 2000-2001. While she generally was a [=Heel=] before she joined the group, and was [[ActionGirl an excellent wrestler]], she had also been MsFanservice. In fact, as part of this run, she did not take part in the photo shoot for the 2001 ''Divas in Hedonism'' [=DVD=].

[[folder:Theater]]
* OlderThanSteam: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern in Creator/WilliamShakespeare's ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}''.
* Harry Robinson in ''Film/TheLadykillers'' is the least masculine of the band of criminals.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Rouge the Bat in the SonicTheHedgehog series. She's a spy and thief among villains that are usually mad scientists, grizzled anti heroes or member of a robot army. Openly flirts with the heroes, and makes her way through the ranks of whatever her organization, even being TheLeader of Team Dark in Sonic Heroes. Even in her original appearance she was the first member of Team Dark to HeelFaceTurn against Eggman when it was revealed she was actually a mole sent by the government and began to develop feelings for Knuckles on the Good Guys side.
* FireEmblem tends to buiild up its female antagonists this way
** Sonia in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]'' who is a [[TheVamp seductress]] that marries the leader of a mercenary gang to transform them into an evil army from the inside out. Stands out from most Morphs in that she believes she is human and thinks of herself as TheDragon to Nergal (only to be proven wrong by Limstella)
** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path Of Radiance]]'' has General Petrine, a {{Pyromaniac}}al LadyOfWar who is utterly devoted to [[AxeCrazy Mad]] [[TheCaligula King]] [[BigBad Ashnard]]. In theory she is CoDragons along with General Bryce and The Black Knight, but she is clearly subordinate to both of them, making her this instead.
** Kleine in [[FireEmblemAkaenia New Mystery of the Emblem]] is the most competant of her QuirkyMinibossSquad, essentially making her TheDragon to Eremiah.
* Scarlet in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''.
* Axem Pink in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG''.
* In KingdomHearts Larxene is The Dark Chick of Organization XIII. She's the only female member of the group, toys with Vexen and Axel, and generally has a nonchalant attitude towards things. By the end she's also TheDragon to the BigBad of ''Chain of Memories'' as Dark Chicks tend to be upwardly mobile people.
* Kariya and Uzuki in ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou''.
* Veronica in ''[[VideoGame/ShadowHearts Shadow Hearts 2]]''.
* Belleza in ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia''.
* Shannon in ''VideoGame/GodHand''.
* Sniper Wolf in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''.
* Ghost Widow, Dollface, Countess Crey, and Vanessa [=DeVore=] from ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes''. Note that [=DeVore=] and Crey are the leaders of their villain groups.
* Mz Ruby and Dmitri in the ''Franchise/SlyCooper'' games.
* Mimi in ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario''.
* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'':
** The first game has [[spoiler:Bastila Shan, after her FaceHeelTurn]].
** The second has Visas Marr, before her HeelFaceTurn.
* Wendy O. Koopa in the ''Super Mario Adventures'' comics and ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3''.
* Fox, from the first ''VideoGame/BloodyRoar'' game. A sadistic transvestite in hot pink leather. Also considered his fox beastform "ugly", despite it being one of the most attractive animals to turn into -- especially compared to the gorilla and boar.
* Barbariccia/Valvalis of the Four Fiends in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV''.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', ''[[OmnicidalManiac Kefka]]'' was the Dark Chick of the FiveBadBand, despite the presence of Celes, the female general. [[spoiler: In a twist, he also [[TheStarscream becomes the final]] BigBad [[TheStarscream by killing another general and then the Emperor.]]]]
** He takes a similar role in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy''. In a cast of villains mainly consisting of cold schemers and {{Tin Tyrant}}s, he stands out as a giggling, unserious, destruction-loving maniac that none of the villains seem to take seriously. Which is a ''big'' mistake; at one point he [[spoiler:pulls a YouHaveFailedMe on an ''EldritchAbomination'']].
*** Another Dark Chick in ''Dissidia Final Fantasy'' is [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX Kuja]], whose flamboyance and comparative inexperience tend to separate him from the rest of the Chaos side. It does bear mentioning that, unlike most of the other villains in the series, both Kefka and Kuja [[spoiler:actually succeed in inflicting lasting planetary-scale destruction in their original games]].
* The [[CreepyCrossdresser villainous]], ruthless [[DudeLooksLikeALady crossdresser]] Flea, one of Magus's generals from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger''.
* There's also some examples from ''VideoGames/NintendoWars'' like the playful Lash in ''Dual Strike'' who enjoys toying with her rivals as much as fighting them. She also makes the HeelFaceTurn.
* Whiptail from ''VideoGame/HeavenlySword''.
* While there are many examples in ''VideoGame/CrossEdge'', Anesha is probably the best example.
* Persephone from ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 5}}''.
* Tamoko from ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'': The only "minion" of [[BigBad Sarevok]] who actually cares about him and doesn't want him to go through with his somewhat insane plan. The others are presumably in it for a share of the power he's after. Tamoko has almost made a HeelFaceTurn by the time you first talk to her, and the PC can convince her not to attack at the end by being morally good enough.
* Rare PC example: [[BlackMagicianGirl Chloe]] from ''VideoGame/ManaKhemia2FallOfAlchemy''.
* Mara Aramov, Elsa Weissenger, and Trinidad in the ''VideoGame/SyphonFilter'' series.
* Colonel Masako in ''Franchise/RedFaction'', and Quill in the second game after her FaceHeelTurn.
* In VideoGame/PokemonColosseum and [[VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness its sequel]], Cipher occasionally recruits this kind of character as a "face" (not a Face), to ease the population and divert them from what's going on behind the scenes. [[RichBitch Venus]] and [[SleazyPolitician Snattle]] play it straight, while [[ValleyGirl Lovrina]] uses it as a cover (she's actually the EvilGenius.)
* Enchantress in ''VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance's'' version of the Masters of Evil.
* Mileena from ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'', especially in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'', where her pre-battle quotes show that she takes a childlike joy in inflicting pain and is clearly insane.
* Valara from ''VideoGame/BatenKaitos Origins'', who is easily the most ruthless of the [[FiveBadBand Machina Vanguard]].
* Another male example: Yun from ''[[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight]]''. [[spoiler:If you're on the Light Side path, he [[RedemptionEqualsDeath sacrifices himself]] to give you a fair chance against his mistress, Sariss (who's more of an Evil Genius herself).]]
* ''VideoGame/{{BlazBlue}}'' has two, post Continuum Shift. The first is Tsubaki Yayoi, who used to be good friends with Noel, but becomes a victim of MindRape and ended up BrainwashedAndCrazy, while still struggling to maintain her sanity. The other one is [[spoiler:Litchi Faye-Ling, being the TokenGoodTeammate who's in only for curing herself and Arakune, and [[ForcedIntoEvil is not really happy on her position]]. While many would peg her as an EvilGenius due to her doctorate, she is a woman who's more moved by emotions rather than intellect, thus putting her as the Dark Chick.]]
** And just like the rest of FiveBadBand position, Hazama/Terumi fits here the same way [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Kefka]] fit his former position: In a place where nearly everyone else is all about keeping Order, he's a chaos-loving, blatantly AxCrazy psychopath.
* Heartless in ''[[VideoGame/MegaManStarForce Megaman Star Force 3]]'', [[spoiler: up until she betrays King and shoots him into outer space, making her the SixthRangerTraitor.]]
* Two members of Nightmare's gang in ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soulcalibur IV]]'' fit this position [[AxCrazy Tira]] and [[spoiler: TokenGoodTeammate [[ForcedIntoEvil Sophitia]]]].
* Erim, the Sinistral of Death in the ''Franchise/{{Lufia}}'' series. She happens to be the most vital of the Sinistrals, as she can revive the others if they are killed. Each game has her take a HeelFaceTurn to help the hero, though with different circumstances each time.

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* Kusari in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. She's a female costumed assassin on an [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness Omniscient Council Of Vagueness]] that consists mostly of male [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Corrupt Corporate Executives]] and {{Mad Scientist}}s. Later additions to the council, Frog (a [[TalkingAnimal talking frog]]) and Corsica (a non-talking frog) might also count. With such characters replacing original members, the board has become varied enough that Kusari doesn't really stand out like this any more. At the same time, her role as the CEO's [[TheDragon Dragon]] has been emphasized more than before.
* Candi Shugari in ''Webcomic/AngelMoxie''.
* Mary is this for the [[AntiVillain Imperial Guard]] in ''Webcomic/DubiousCompany''. Unlike the other members of the guard, Mary is unable to recognize her behavior as evil. Conquering neighboring [[TakeOverTheWorld countries]]? Killing [[GiveMeLibertyOrGiveMeDeath peasants]]? Kidnapping [[ChainedToARock and sacrificing]] [[LivingMacGuffin Sal]] so that the Emperor can [[AGodIAm become a god]] of war? Clearly acts of good. After all, she used ThePowerOfLove during all of them.
* In ''Webcomic/TrueVillains'', little Mia performs each task she undertakes with ridiculous adorableness. She is also the TagalongKid of the group.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* The Undersiders in ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' are generally serious and more-or-less professional when they go about their business, rob banks, and beat up superheroes. Regent is the exception, being a wise-cracking DeadpanSnarker whose cheerful facade masks his sociopathy. So, not only is he the cheerful one, he's ''also'' the TokenEvilTeammate.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Mochi Mochiato in the Legion of Low Tide from ''WesternAnimation/SushiPack''.
* Sometimes turns up in ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}''.
** Blackarachnia, who is both the DarkActionGirl and the Dark Chick - her characterisation is 'girl' and 'dark'. She's introduced as being much more competent than the other Predacons in adition to being a FemmeFatale. She ultimate pulls a HeelfaceTurn after falling in love with one of the Maximals. Given the amazing quality of the writing for ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' this is not a bad thing.
** Blackarachnia in ''[[WestenAnimation/TransformersAnimated Animated]]'', and she doesn't pull the HeelFaceTurn.
*** And Slipstream, the female of the [[spoiler: Starscream clone]] group, who seems to be based on Starscream's ability to bitch about everything.
