** 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.

Savior. And there was this one time when he lost His temper with merchants and moneylenders doing their business on Temple grounds...
-->And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. And he told those who sold the pigeons, "Take these things away; do not make my Father's house a house of trade." [Jn 2:1316]

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012'' has a villainous example: Fisher considers his twin daughters to be absolutely rotten people. Due to that, he repeatedly creates tasks and trials in a constant effort to get them to behave more respectfully towards other people and appreciate their kindness. It invariably fails, causing the opinions of his daughters to sink further each time. This example doubles as HiddenDepths, as he is depicted as a CorruptCorporateExecutive most of the time, but he is shown to truly understand compassion, honesty, and generosity, repaying it when done to him and hoping that someday, his daughters will do the same.

A form of GoodIsNotNice. Through the lens of GoodCopBadCop, the Dark Shepherd closes the sieve. However, usually aware of the somewhat shameful nature of his persuasion, the Dark Shepherd's work is often private, behind the back of any Good Shepherd that may put a stop to it. Compare HobbesWasRight.

* [[VideoGame/TheWitcher Geralt of Rivia]] has seen too much to believe that monsters are always defined by their species. If anyone commits horrible crimes for reasons that are exceptionally stupid, he can threaten to consider them monsters and kill them because he really, really wants to kill bad people. Most are pretty stupid, but a few consider throwing down their arms and going home.
