20 Animals That Look Like They’ve Turned to the Dark Side

There are some animals that often become symbols of darkness, like bats or ravens. However, they’re not the only animals to draw upon the power of the dark side. Whether they’re completely or partially melanistic, have horns, sharp teeth, or boast captivating eyes, some animals look like they could join the top goth bands of all time.

We at Bright Side would like to share a fresh selection of photos of animals who look like they joined the dark side. They’re dangerous, strong, and elegant — and include a melanistic serval, a stygian owl, and a black arctic fox.
