** The [[PlayingWithFire Fire]]/[[CombatPragmatist Dark]]-types Houndour and Houndoom serve as the Hunter type. Houndoom especially is TheDreaded in-universe; has a distinct skull motif, demonic horns, and an arrowhead-tipped tail; and breathes toxic flames that, if they touch you, cause burns whose pain [[WoundThatWillNotHeal will never go away]].

Houndoom also got a mega evolution in X and Y that has more bone armor and other design adjustments. It goes from evil looking to downright satanic. The anime portrays them as being being capable of being good and kind Pokemon, which is rare for this trope; one episode revolves around one caring for and protecting a baby Pokemon. It helps that they ignore the game's aforementioned lore about it's fire.

* Pratchett and Gaiman's novel ''Literature/GoodOmens'' has a hellhound named, of all things, [[FluffyTheTerrible Dog]]. Who quickly mellows out. Having the [[AntiAntiChrist surprisingly nice Antichrist]], [[MeaningfulName Adam]], for an owner probably contributes.

* Pratchett and Gaiman's novel ''Literature/GoodOmens'' has a hellhound named, of all things, [[FluffyTheTerrible Dog]]. Who quickly mellows out. Having that starts out as the [[AntiAntiChrist surprisingly nice Antichrist]], typical slavering demonic hound, but his nature is ultimately determined by the desires of his master, the young Antichrist. The Antichrist wants a [[DogStereotype cute, friendly, playful dog]]. Named Dog. There's a reason why [[MeaningfulName Adam]], for an owner probably contributes.Adam]] is the subject of the quote on AntiAntiChrist.

* ''{{Hellsing}}'' has Alucard able to summon a hellhound, explicitly named as The Hound of the Baskervilles. He also takes on the form of one in the TV series.
* In ''BlackButler'', there is a hellhound named Pluto. He doesn't necessarily fit in any of the above categories, but it is stated that he is a demon hound, which is basically the same thing as a hellhound. He can breathe fire, is white, and his intelligence level is ambiguous, as it is never made clear if he has more than the mind of a normal dog.

* ''AHDotComTheSeries'' has Sudanases Hunting Dogs (based on a forum running joke) which shoot clouds of bees from their mouth when they bark. As a ShoutOut to Discworld's Grimhounds, they have orange eyebrows.

Hellhounds have been appearing since {{Hesiod}} wrote his ''Theogony'', making this one OlderThanFeudalism. Standard hellhounds are black with glowing red or flaming eyes. They may have two or even three heads. Famous hellhounds are [[Myth/GreekMythology Cerberus]] and Literature/{{the Hound of the Baskervilles}}. [[Myth/NorseMythology Fenrir]] may also fit, and Garmr certainly does.

* The unnamed dog pack in ''Literature/RiddleyWalker'', although not actually supernatural, do represent the wholly supernatural dogs Folleree and Folleroo from their equivalent of PunchAndJudy shows. One of them (the old leader) also serves as a portent of change for Riddley.
