* In Creator/AAPessimal's take on the ''{{Discworld}}'', the Chaplain to the Thieves' Guild School is a cheerful motherly nun, beloved by her pupils, kind, loving and suporting. Who was on the run for embezzling large amounts of money from her Order, which she maintains was "resting" in her bank account. Her motto for reverend contemplation is ''The Gods help those who help themselves''. This is believed to be based on a real case where a cheerful Irish nun, headmistress of a convent school, bankrupted the school by persistent and well-concealed theft estimated at a million pounds over ten years.

* Referencing the brothel mentioned in the Real Life section below, Sister Teodora in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'' runs a bordello staffed by (former) nuns. She says she takes care of both the body and the soul.

* There was a brothel in medieval England that catered to customers with a NaughtyNuns fetish. None of the employees were actually nuns, but they wore the full costume.
** A [[GetTheeToANunnery nunnery]] indeed...

** Chantez fights by using a lot of dirty tricks. Heck, she even tells a bold-faced lie to [[CloneJesus the clone of her Church's figure of worship]] to set up a surprise attack.

That said, she entered the Intermiddle Championship to inspire other girls to join the Saint Church as a way of paying back the kindness that Sister Schach showed her when she was a StreetUrchin.

* The title character of [[Creator/LuisBunuel Luis Buñuel]]'s ''Viridiana'' is a novitiate-nun who tries to be Mother Theresa, but is secretly Prideful of her Good Works. She's really more misinformed and naive than 'bad', but she screws it up magnificently nevertheless.

** Maria herself becomes frightened of becoming this trope when she discovers she has feelings for Captain Von Trapp, and runs back to the Abbey in a panic. The Reverend Mother reassures her that there is nothing immoral about loving a person ("The love between a man and a woman is holy too"), especially since Maria hadn't yet taken her vows and therefore wasn't officially a nun. She instead encourages Maria to follow her own path in life, which does not necessarily lead to being a nun.

* One of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julie_d%27Aubigny Julie d'Aubigny]]'s more famous exploits involved a convent where the parents of her [[BiTheWay latest female lover]] had sent the girl after learning of their affair. To get inside Julie posed as a postulant, put the body of a recently deceased nun in a bed and set the room on fire to cover their escape.

Ironically, Julie ended up living her last years in a convert after another female lover of hers died, on whose death she was inconsolable. She died there at the age of only 33.

* Father Alexander Anderson from the same is played with a bit more; while he's also a member of the Iscariot Organization (and a male, so a priest rather than a nun), he reserves his bayonets [[{{Hammerspace}} pulled from nowhere]] for ''vampires'' only, along with his SlasherSmile and ScaryShinyGlasses. In his off-hours he runs an orphanage where he is [[FriendToAllChildren truly beloved]], and gets into a [[{{Understatement}} slight disagreement]] when his superior decides to cut down innocent people along with vampires; he might not LIKE Protestant England, but he's not a mass murderer.

* Former LadyOfWar Galatea in ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' surely seems to enjoy a [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl drinking competition]] with former comrades (and win easily), she has a personal {{BFS}} which she hides under her bed, doesn't personally adhere to the beliefs of her church and also [[ActionDressRip shows]] some NaughtyNun traits when she's fighting the Awakened one in the city of Rabona ([[ClothingDamage Nun clothes aren't meant for combat, after all...]]). Overall this trope is downplayed though, Galatea became a nun to hide from those who were hunting her down, under normal circumstances she acts politely and is [[FriendToAllChildren particularly beloved]] by the orphans of Rabona.

* Misora Kasuga from MahouSenseiNegima also counts as this. Despite working as a ChurchMilitant for Mahora, she prefers using her SprintShoes to escape rather than for assistance. And that's not even counting her mischievous deeds, including posing as a priest inside a confessional.

* In ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'', set in a part of the world where priests are supposed to be celibate, we first find out about Abraham's existence from the mouth of his son. Then we find out that he has another son, [[spoiler:that he's actually a mafia don hiding from the police]], that these two sons have different mothers and that he may have at least three more (hinted to have different mothers as well). Oh, and the son who spilled the beans? He's a silly ForgetfulJones and seems to have gotten it from Abraham.
