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.

KnightTemplar and HobbesWasRight. Not to be confused with DarkMessiah.

* [[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.

->''"You have two options. You can wait until I leave, and then murder [[spoiler:Abigail]]. But then I'll come back. I'll slay every lice-ridden peasant, anything that moves and can't climb a tree. Or, you can lead honourable lives; clear your conscience and start again, like humans. The choice is yours."''

** Shepherd Book from ''Firefly'' is a Good Shepherd with Dark Shepherd moments, like his "Special Hell" comments from "Our Ms. Reynolds".

* Harry Dresden of ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' has elements of this in how he treats his apprentice Molly, combined with ScareEmStraight. In an earlier moment, Cassius, who is host to a dangerous demon, fakes a HeelFaceTurn and the Knights have to leave him alone as he has given up the demon, even though its blatantly obvious he did this to not be harmed. As he still has crucial information to his boss' evil plan, Harry gives a candidate for the page quote.

If the baddie has been remonstrated in some morally sound way, once they're around the corner, [[WhatYouAreInTheDark safe and alone]], [[IgnoredEpiphany they may suffer doubt]]... or perhaps he was only ''acting'' remorseful to escape, with no intention of repentance. Whether out of habit or malice, the villain is poised to forget the moral lesson and do the exact same thing that got him in trouble. At which point, the DarkShepherd steps in.

* [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Sister Butch]] of ''WesternAnimation/JohnCallahansQuads". Her only motivation (read: ''only motivation'') for doing anything in life is her faith, and you'd better believe she'll do anything from ''threaten people with eternal damnation for not donating enough to a charity'' to breaking and entry to [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome taking on Satan in a wrestling arena]] for that purpose.

* If the player chooses Renegade options in the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' trilogy, the protagonist, Shepard, will act like this. (Taking Paragon options makes him/her a GoodShepherd, and both courses of action have pros and cons.) Either way, s/he ends up saving the galaxy.
