Considered to be one of two forms of pure magic alongside Positive Magic, Negative Magic is practiced primarily by those who wish to use magic more destructively. When practicing or harnessing negative magic, one must channel the negative aspects of their magic as well as their own negative emotions, as doing so makes them capable of attracting even more negativity. Thus, if one gets overwhelmed by positive emotions like kindness, or things associated with them like cuteness, then their magic will grow significantly weaker, and may even leave them incapable of casting dark magic until said feelings or things pass.
Negative Magic may also be purified and turned positive, which can occur through outside forces via purification spells or overexposure to positive feelings that the wielder is forced to experience. Unlike its positive counterpart, once negative magic has been purified, it becomes significantly weaker or may even be erased completely, which would force the wielder into starting from the ground up should they wish to continue practicing magic. Very rarely does a being with powerful negative magic maintain their magical strength after their magic has been purified. Negative Magic can also be reverted back in a similar way to how it was purified: through corruption spells or realizations that help the wielder regain their negativity.
In the second movie, it is implied that all of Negative and Positive magic in the universe is contained in the Tree of Life, and that the Tree keeps the balance between the Negative and the Positive energy.
Of course just because someone uses dark magic its does not necessarily mean their evil. As Griffin has stated witches or at least Cloud Tower students, use their powers for good just like fairies, they just use dark magic to do so.
Types of Negative Magic
Negative Magic covers a broad range of elements and types since the magic will continue to be recognized as negative so long as it is being wielded by someone as they draw strength from negative emotions. For instance, if a wizard can wield fire magic through channeling its negative aspects, then he is wielding negative magic.
Some types of magic may be wielded solely through the process of channeling negative emotions and aspects, like dark magic (magic over darkness or dark forces), just as their exists some magical beings that are only capable of wielding negative magic. Likewise, there also exist types of magic that can only be wielded through Positive Magic, just as there are beings that can only wield positive magic and are thus incapable of harnessing negative magic.
