Dark Is Not Evil / Web Original

  • ARCHON's extra lore states that the Culled, despite being undead, viciously fought against their former Necromancer masters in order to prevent other people from being cursed as they were.
  • In Avatar High , Eldritch beings like Azathoth regularly help protect the Multiverse.
  • In the League of Intergalactic Cosmic Champions Sailor Evil, aka Shadow Senshi, had darkness based powers, but was good... it was just her last name that was Evil.
  • Louie and Ian Von Helson from Gaia Online, as they are vampires.
    • The Elves and Glombies too.
  • The Darkness Faeries in Neopets. Although even other fairies consider them evil, most of them are misunderstood and mischievious at worst, although they still seem to have an edge in the "evil" ratio as a group. There are many Neopians that even suspect that Queen Fyora herself is a Darkness Faerie promoted as queen, due to her name ending in the same sound as Jhudora and Jennumara, two Darkness Faeries (at least one of them, Jennumara, is actually evil. Jhudora might be just a bigass poser that might hug puppies when nobody else is looking... Or not).
  • Worm. Okay, it centres around villains whose only fully heroic member is the protagonist herself, but it is repeatedly shown that even at their worst none of The Undersiders are truly evil or anything close to it. However- unlike other such villains in the series- their powers are a collection of nightmare-inducing horrors that even includes someone with literal darkness powers. He is a villain in order to get money and a respectable facade so he can take care of his younger sister away from his extremely messed up mother. He worries about his lack of social awareness and is shown to forget how unpleasant his darkness is as he can see, hear and feel normally in it.
  • This wiki! Yes! The Friends of Really Kool Sobriquet are in the Darth Wiki, but are by no means evil. They call themselves evil, but most of the people there are just nice guys who like funny trope names.
    • Plus a lot of the other stuff on there. Strictly speaking, there's nothing evil about hating bad movies and shows, nor in talking about it online.
  • The monsters of Mortasheen are grotesque, no doubt, but very few of them can actually be considered evil. In fact, quite a few of them were genetically engineered to be helpful to society.
  • Music reviewer Todd in the Shadows, as his name suggests, is almost always seen in darkness. While he is quite snarky and prone to fits of rage when he hears particularly bad music, he's a pretty nice guy.
  • In The Gamer's Alliance, some of the demons such as Omaroch and Ronove are not as bad as one might think. The Forgotten are not as villainous as the Clergy of Mardük even though both worship the dark god Mardük.
  • The Creepypasta "Love" features a haunting by a ghost that actually turns out to be benevolent.
    • To elaborate The protagonist's father was a Sergeant that died in the line of duty and the ghost was a loyal solider that died alongside him keeping a promise he made to him to protect his daughter should something ever happen to him. On her 18th birthday he deems his final order complete and leaves her a letter before crossing over.
  • In The Graystone Saga, Lady Gray is an Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette who wears a lot of her namesake color and has a very sinister reputation. She's a genuinely decent person; she's just been through hell.
  • The Zombie Knight center around Garovel and Hector, a reaper of souls and his deathless servant. The reason Garovel bothered to take a servant was to have a means of saving lives, a role Hector enthusiastically embraces.
  • One of the main characters, Orpheus, in the audio play Guiders of our Dreams is Guider, or controller of Darkness itself. He is surprisingly a very friendly guy, besides the fact that he could unleash all hell.
  • From Welcome to Night Vale, the titular town is associated with night, darkness, shadows, the moon, and the color purple. Sure, a lot of bad stuff happens there, but for the most part Night Vale's inhabitants are pretty friendly. It makes a nice contrast to the Light Is Not Good tendencies of the neighboring town, Desert Bluffs.
