* ''Manga/DGray-man has an odd example with Nea. [[spoiler: Though he rebelled against his family and his hated by number of them he shares their evilness and hatred for regular humans. Road once stated "he is different from us". So he is indeed an outcast in his evil family but he is still very much evil. Purple sheep maybe?]]

* In the backstory of ''{{TabletopGame/Ravenloft}}'', Sergei von Zarovich was this among his family, especially compared to his older brother Strahd, who while still a respected ruler was undoubtedly brutal and vicious. Sergei would [[CainAndAbel ultimately be murdered by Strahd]] after he made a pretty much literal DealWithTheDevil out of jealousy that a woman named Tatyana [[SiblingTriangle had fallen in love with Sergei and not him]], and then Strahd tried to pursue Tatyana, only for her to flee from him and [[DriveToSuicide throw herself from the walls of Castle Ravenloft]].

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': All in all, being only a Bolton by marriage, Fat Walda is the most, if not the only decent, person carrying that name in the series so far. That said, she was also presumably one of the few decent Freys before marrying Roose.

* ShowWithinAShow example from ''{{Cabaret}}'': the Mama of DontTellMama seems to be the only family member not involved in something seedy, as her daughter is a dancer at a seedy nightclub, her husband is a ''customer'' of the nightclub, her brother or brother-in-law is her daughter's agent for the nightclub, her mother or mother-in-law is ''also'' a dancer at the nightclub, and her son is involved in something bad enough that her daughter 'will squeal on him' if he squeals on her.

* In ''Literature/{{Run}}'', Bo and Dickinson seem to be the only good people in the Dickinson family. Everyone else we see is either deadbeat, white trash, or involved with drugs.

** The Heterodyne Boys are the "white sheep" of a long line of megalomaniacal, vicious, and extremely competent [[MadScientist Sparky]] rulers.
** Agatha Heterodyne is even more of a white sheep than her father and uncle - apparently she's already beat them when it comes to not killing people.

rulers. Their mother, Teodora Vodenicharoa, raised them outside the Castle and its insane idea of child care. They grew up with a strong sense of right and wrong and heroic spirit, and worked to redeem the family name across the world. This did have a darker side, however--in rejecting everything to do with the Old Heterodynes, they rejected their [[GeniusLoci sentient Castle]] and [[SuperSoldier army of Jaegers]]. The Castle couldn't understand why they hated it so much, while the Jaegers ''could'' understand, and were very depressed about it.
** Agatha Heterodyne Heterodyne, daughter of Bill, is even more both another white sheep of the Heterodynes and a white sheep of the Mongfishes, her mother's family. The Mongfishes were all insane megalomaniacs with a disturbing interest in biology, but Agatha has little to do with that side of her family. Furthermore, she's a little bit more gray than her father and uncle - apparently uncle. Since she's already not desperate to deny the Heterodyne heritage like they were, she is happy to use all the old Heterodyne monsters for good. She loves the Castle and the Jaegers, and even if they find her a little "boring," they're more than happy to fight for her. She also has the Heterodyne boys beat them when it comes to not killing people.

** Really, despite the many stories about dysfunctional [=MacIntyre=]s, Davan's branch of the family is mostly just full of [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold occasionally jerkish]] {{Deadpan Snarker}}s.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MadMonsterParty,'' [[MadScientist Dr. Frankenstein]] intends to name his nephew, [[UnluckyEverydude Felix]], as his successor. Frankenstein specifically refers to Felix's mother as the "white sheep" in their family--she gave up associations with horror and evil, and thus Felix neither knows about nor wants his uncle's inheritance.

* ''Film/{{Greedy}}'': Danny is a subversion. He ''starts'' out as being more principled than his greedy relatives who are competing for their old Uncle Joe's fortune. However, the idea of making a fortune gets to his head, and he starts competing as well, shamlessly doing a dance he did as child, [[spoiler: and then staging an argument with his moralistic father to declare he likes Uncle Joe more. It is double-subverted when he realizes how far he has sunk, and when he learns that Uncle Joe is broke, he still takes him in anyway.]]
