* The first enemy you'll find in the ''VideoGame/{{Penumbra}}'' are mutated dogs with [[GlowingEyesOfUndeath glowing yellow eyes]]. They will attack you on sight, but can be distracted with beef jerky. Their hellish appearance comes from the fact [[spoiler: that they've been infected by [[TheVirus the Tuurngait Virus]].]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBros''L The necromancer Dr. Orpheus occasionally encounters his supernatural mentor, who takes physical form in several guises, once as Cerberus. He is a pretty laid-back sort, however, and is intrigued at how one of his heads is licking himself as he talks, and he can taste it.

* Pratchett and Gaiman's novel ''Literature/GoodOmens'' has a hellhound that starts out as the 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]] is the subject of the quote on AntiAntiChrist.

* The barghests in ''TheWitcher'' certainly qualify, ghostly, monstrous dogs brought about (like many monsters in the setting) by the evils of the village they haunt.
* In the Greek-themed ''QuestForGloryV'', you literally journey to Hades and meet Cerberus himself. You can either bribe him with food (each of his heads has a different favorite) or [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer whack him with a sword]] until [[IAmLegion the three heads]] get tired of telling you [[IAmLegion they're]] immortal.

* ''ComicBook/{{Arawn}}'': Arawn always had a connection to wolves, but they don't start to fit this trope until he becomes an EvilOverlord and resurrects the last two wolves from his pack as his personal pets with [[RedEyesTakeWarning glowing red eyes]].

* The Hounds of Tindalos created by Creator/FrankBelknapLong for the Franchise/CthulhuMythos are Hellhounds mixed with EldritchAbomination. Their existence predates multicellular life on Earth, they are immortal, and they can travel freely through time and space. Since they can exist in the "angles" of time (everything else lives in the "curves"), they can manifest through any corner (120 degrees or less) anywhere. The Hounds aren't named as such for their appearance (the original story implies a more bat-like appearance but later illustrations depict them as canines) but for their relentlessness. The Hounds hunger for something other living creatures possess that they lack; once they become aware of something or someone they will ''never'' stop hunting them. An easy way to gain their attention is to travel through time.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', Clavicus Vile, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[DealWithTheDevil Bargains]] and [[LiteralGenie Wishes]], is typically accompanied by his [[MoralityPet external conscience]], Barbas, in the form of a CanineCompanion. Subverted in that Barbas may ''look'' like a Hell Hound in his statues, but is much closer to a BigFriendlyDog in terms of personality and in appearance when he manifests in the mortal world.
