    The MySQL Workbench theme is nice? Just for kicks, why do you want thjis? The MySQL CLI client using a terminal window might get a retro effect - green screen/Star Trek (early series).

  • Sympathies, but skins/themes on clients are not a big priority here :-(. All I can suggest is to download a number of them and trybthem to see if they'll do what you want! Can you turn down the brightness on your physical screen?

HeidiSQL has some nice dark themes.

DBForge Studio has exactly what you are looking for.

Once installed, go to Tools -> Skin -> Visual Studio 2013 Dark. Everything will be dark (The database tree view, the query windows, the table results, etc).
