Join the Dark Side with these awesome night-friendly wallpapers

Apple still doesn't offer a system-wide Night Mode for iPhone or iPad, but that doesn't mean you can't take the darkness into your own hands. There are a lot of bright, busy wallpapers out there, but there are also many that come simply, elegantly from the dark side...

Stormtrooper

Dun dun dun DUN dun-dun DUN dun-dun...

Most stormtrooper wallpapers are as white as the day is long, but this minimalist wall flips the script and shows what would be a terrifying sight to any self-respecting rebel scum: the mask of an Imperial Stormtrooper creeping out of the shadows to put you in its terribly aimed sights…

Neptune and Triton

This cold planet makes a cool wallpaper

Space. A seemingly endless void where no one can hear you scream… But there's still a serene peace to it. Even on a distant and bitterly cold planet like Neptune, we can find beauty and tranquility.

Tron Light Cycle Wallpaper

Wanna race?

Try and tell me you don't want a lightcycle. Just try. You can't do it. They're so cool, and whatever you thought of Tron Legacy (and the threequel that got canned), the way it did lightcycles was even cooler. Such a dark wallpaper meshes well with our setups and our souls.

Batman Beyond

Run. Just. Run.

Okay, I take back my earlier statement. The stormtrooper isn't that terrifying. If I was in a dark alley and all I saw were two glowing eyes and the bat symbol, I'd be scared witless, and I'm not even a criminal. Batman is a badass and the only line he won't cross is releasing you to the sweet, sweet mercy of death after breaking every bone in your body. He is a symbol of justice to the masses and a symbol of terror to those who would do wrong.

If I can't love her...

Great as the film was, there's something about musicals that can (and in many cases does) surpass the original. Musicals are where we see the awesome numbers that were cut from the film for timing. Musicals are where we see new depth to storylines we knew and loved as a kid.

Who says princesses can't be dark? Now excuse me, I need to go belt out 'Home' in a dark tower somewhere…
