Playing With: Dark Is Evil

Basic Trope: A villain with relations to the Dark.
  • Straight: Emperor Evulz is the Big Bad in a black outfit with the Power of Darkness
  • Exaggerated: Emperor Evulz is Obviously Evil in Black and the Darkness is so evil that everything within sight dies.
  • Downplayed: He wears dark clothing, but is morally ambiguous at worst.
  • Justified:
  • Inverted: Light Is Good/Dark Is Not Evil
  • Subverted:
    • Despite wearing black, he has connections with the Light.
    • He's a good guy in black.
  • Double Subverted:
  • Parodied: Lightbulbs die the minute Emperor Evulz is even mentioned.
  • Zig Zagged:
    • Emperor Evulz frequently switches costumes, roughly half of which are black.
    • Or, Emperor Evulz is a Heel-Face Revolving Door, switching between being a villain and a hero every other episode, whilst keeping his black attire and powers of darkness.
  • Averted:
    • Despite his signs of darkness, he isn't good or evil.
    • No one wears black or has darkness-related powers in the series.
  • Enforced:
  • Lampshaded: "That Emperor Evulz guy loves to wear Black a lot".
  • Invoked: "We have to make it REALLY obvious who is the villain here. Give him a completely black costume and Darkness related power".
  • Exploited: Knowing that black attires intimidate people, Emperor Evulz makes sure his wardrobe is stuffed full of them.
  • Defied:
    • A person with a mean streak receives dark-based superpowers and vows to try to be nicer to live up to his/her new abilities.
    • He's the Token Good Teammate on the side of evil.
  • Discussed: "Yep. The guy in the black is Obviously Evil".
  • Conversed: "Black again? You're not very imaginative, are you? Colours are fun, you know".
