The first video game about Dark is Evil was released on March 28, 2002.

Capcom, EA International and Mojang has published most of these games

This could be generalized to "color of evil" or something similar where a specific color denotes this. Red is notably common, though more often associated with anger/hate in that regard than evil itself.
Commonly manifests with whole species being named "dark" something in reference to how Evil they are.

Milder instances are where evil things explicitly prefer darkness, making it their domain and associating it with being evil (no good character/being would prefer darkness in similar manner in the setting).
