* The first boss in ''LostKingdoms 2'' is a monster called Hell Hound, the best Jump card. There's also the monster Cerberus. It too is a Jump card, but not as good.

* In Steven Erikson's ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'', the Hounds of Shadow are powerful and terrifying supernatural beasts that do the bidding of Shadowthrone, and [[spoiler:the Hounds of Darkness]] are even more powerful and terrifying, but they do no-one's bidding... And there are the T'lan Ay, the primitive undead semi-domesticated dogs of the T'lan Imass.

* In Steven Erikson's ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'', ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'':
** The Hounds of Shadow and eventually the [[spoiler:Hounds of Light]] are said to be the size of ponies, and the former can travel between realms using [[CastingAShadow shadow magic]] as they are basically the pets of the King of High House Shadow. They are also thousands, if not hundreds of thousands years old. Shadowthrone claims confidence in the Hounds' loyalty and guarding of his Shadow keep, but his right hand man Cotillion, the Patron God of Assassins, prefers to keep a weary eye on these 'pets'.
** The Deragoth, or Hounds of Darkness, are supposed to be even bigger than
the Hounds of Shadow are powerful and terrifying supernatural beasts that do to resemble bears in size. They may be even older than the bidding of Shadowthrone, and [[spoiler:the Hounds of Darkness]] Shadow, old enough, in fact, to once have domesticated early humans as ''their'' pets. They are even more powerful and terrifying, but they do no-one's bidding... And there are said to be the T'lan Ay, [[VoluntaryShapeshifting D'ivers form]] of Dessimbelackis, the primitive undead semi-domesticated dogs Emperor of the T'lan Imass.human First Empire, who sought to teach his subjects a lesson about respecting nature by turning them in beast shapeshifters. In ''Literature/HouseOfChains'', Trull Sengar and Onrack accidentally release the Deragoth from their eternal stone prison in the Nascent, leaving them to roam the realms.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'':
** The classical Hellhound Cerberus, who here has human traits like a beard and hands, punishes those in the Third Circle of Hell by ripping them apart in its three horrible mouths. Fittingly, Cereberus's infernal meals have been damned for gluttony.
** Hordes of black bitches (as in female dogs) chase and maim those who destroyed themselves through carelessness in the Forest of Suicides.

* 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.
