* Prophet Sachary Comstock from ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'' counts. He convinced everyone in [[FloatingContinent Columbia]] that God told him to build the city as a haven for the chosen people, [[WhiteAngloSaxonProtestant non-Irish white people]] who believe his message that the lesser races are only meant to be used as [[MadeASlave free labor for the chosen few,]] and that a "false shepherd" with [[MarkOfTheBeast an evil mark (AD),]] "will lead [[TheChosenOne the Lamb]] astray."

to:

* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' has [[KnightTemplar Governor Kraft]], the ruler of the Confederation. He purges the [[DirtyCommunists Marxists]] out of the country and enforces his reactionary ideology through informal pressure rather than law, eventually creating a stable equilibrium. By the end of the story, his state is described as virtually utopian, since all the evil forces were so thoroughly scared away.

* Paul "Pious" Schäfer from the movie ''Film/LaColonia.'' He rules his commune, ''Colonia Dignidad'' (Dignity Colony) with an iron fist, and keeps men and women separate because he believes that [[SexIsEvil the love between a man and a woman is wicked and sinful,]] but [[PedophilePriest the (physical) love between man and child is saintly.]] Although the story itself is fiction, [[TruthInTelevision Schäfer did run his commune in the isolated foothills of the Chilean Andes,]] and he died in prison after being sentenced for sexually abusing children.

* Russian Stalinists think Stalin was this, and the purpose of his cruelty was [[ScareEmStraight scare any and all crooks, mobsters, corrupt bureaucrats and conspirators straight]]. Since TheNewRussia is particularly full of mobsters and corrupt bureaucrats, they desperately want someone to do this again.

Added DiffLines:

[[AC: FanFiction]]
* ''FanFic/ShatteredReflection'': Having a seriously DarkAndTroubledPast [[EtTuBrute involving being betrayed by her own version of the]] [[FireEmblemAwakening Shepherds,]] Rose has absolutely no faith in their ability to make moral and rational decisions when she visits the timeline that the story takes place in, and thus defaults to this whenever trying to get them to do something.

** Shepherd Book from ''Firefly'' is a Good Shepherd with Dark Shepherd moments, as when he warns Mal that taking advantage of a naive and innocent (-seeming) young woman will get him sent to a "special hell" in "Our Ms. Reynolds". Also, while he [[ThouShaltNotKill won't kill]], the Good Book is a mite fuzzier on the subject of kneecaps.

** {{Jesus}} also counts. For someone who preaches about love and {{forgiveness}}, He also (in a rather gentle manner, mind you) warns people of eternal damnation in Hell if they don't repent of their sins and accept Him as Lord and Savior. [[BerserkButton And there was this one time when he lost His temper with merchants and moneylenders doing their business on Temple grounds...]]

** This is carried over from ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'', where the followers of the [[PathOfInspiration Path of Night]], mostly [[CorruptChurch Lasombra]], considered themselves dark angels of God's wrath. Their goal was to [[ScareEmStraight terrify sinners and force repentance]], with a [[NobleDemon strict policy]] of [[ThouShaltNotKill never killing their victims]].

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' is full of classic Dark Shepherd, usually used on civilians who are corrupt but not yet evil. The Batman doesn't claim to be good, he doesn't act good, but he wants everyone to be good. Most common Dark Shepherd scenario: vanishing, leaving a potential villain with food for thought, but not a scratch on him yet.
