AKA Suave bad guy. Joker. Chuck Bass. Magneto. Wolverine. Inspired by my friend Arash Dibazar, the dark prince represents chaos. He is the opposite of order. Despite his dark nature, his is principles and operates based on a rule set of ethics. His general outlook is different than that of the masses, and may run counter to “politically correct”. He is, however, strong enough to pursue his own sense of purpose and dedicates much of his energy to what he believes in.
The cast of Leverage, John Travolta in Swordfish, Atticus Finch, Alan Shore, all dark heroes fit into this category. Further along the line of chaos are actual murders like the Joker and Magneto, who are fictional characters created to contrast with the justice represented by Batman and the X Men.
In real life, there simply aren’t that many famous, well known dark princes, as they tend to operate quietly where public backlash is less likely to happen. Like Robin Hood, these princes uses their ability to tap into the dark side to help others. When they go too far, they become characters like The Joker, who simply become an embodiment of chaos.
