* Early ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' had several types of hellhounds, including one that could breathe out fire and one as part of TheWildHunt. By 2nd Edition and onwards, actual hellhounds were established as huge, fire-breathing dogs ''literally'' from {{Hell}} that are used by devils to hunt mortals or summoned by evil spellcasters. Other similar monsters include the shadow mastiff and the yeth hound. Their GoodCounterpart is the blink dog.
** Barghests are LawfulEvil Outsiders -- a catchall term for creatures not native to the mortal worlds -- hailing from the Lower Plane of Gehenna, who can take the appearance of either a [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent bestial goblin]] or a giant, monstrous wolf. They gleefully hunt down sentient beings and consume them [[YourSoulIsMine body and soul.]]

* Mephistopheles first appears as a black ''poodle'' in ''Faust''. Back then they were the Standard (i.e: Big) Hunting Dogs, not the smaller prissy dogs we think of today.

Added DiffLines:

* ''The Bones of Time'' by Kathleen Ann Goonan provides various instances.
** One being three huge black barking mastiffs of the guardian kind, accompanying Lynn, Akamu and Hawkins to the Tibetan yurts after an escape. A narrow one at that.
** Another involves Maui petting two large black dogs - guardians too - amid consonant-free utterings, to assuage their teeth-bared barking at Cen's appearance at their oriental hideout.

* ''VampireTheRequiem'': One of the [[UrbanLegend stories Kindred tells to each others when they don't want to sleep]] is about TheWildHunt from hell: a mysterious person in black loosing tireless packs of hellhounds to hunt Kindred who have committed evil deeds (and by their very nature, Kindred can't avoid evil deeds.) In one version, the hunted vampire (who was a Sanctum member) was spared from the menace by ''repenting on the spot''.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBros'' - 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.
