Dracula

Installs: 2,150,000. It's massive!

Cobalt-3

This is a new but the most colorful and attractive theme I have ever come across. With not more than 8000 installs, it still ranks on the top of my list because of the nice, clean and colorful UI. The contrast is nicely maintained( even better than Dracula ). This is one the best dark themes you will come across with lots of users using it daily.
