* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': Sam Winchester grew up in a family of con artists and violent [[TheHunter vigilantes]], living on the road. It was his dream to settle down as a normal person and not fight anymore. Considering that his family consisted of warriors fighting monsters (although they didn't always look into whether those monsters [[HeWhoFightsMonsters were actually evil or even dangerous]]), he rebelled to go to school so he could become a ''[[AcceptableTargets lawyer]]'', and his entire life has involved [[CorruptTheCutie demonic influence]]; unsurprisingly, he's the BlackSheep as well.

* ''Series/RumpoleOfTheBailey'': The episode "Rumpole and the Barrow Boy" deals with a young man who, despite being a member of the Timson clan of South London petty criminals (or, as Rumpole, who handles nearly all their cases, affectionately puts it, "minor villains"), studies, gets into university, graduates, and gets a high-paying finance job in the City, complete with a banker's daughter for a girlfriend and an apartment on the newly-renewed Isle of Dogs. When there are financial irregularities at the firm, it is the young Timson who is accused. [[spoiler: Falsely--turns out, it was his girlfriend's father, who framed him after having met the rest of the Timsons and deciding didn't care to have them for in-laws.]]

* ''Series/TheDukesOfHazzard'' has [[BigBad Boss Hogg's]] [[EvilTwin good twin]] brother [[MeaningfulName Abraham Lincoln Hogg]], whose name is just one of the things that make him an opposite of ''Jefferson Davis'' "Boss" Hogg, whose family has other villains.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'', Lars Alexandersson (Heihachi's illegitimate son) is the WhiteSheep of the Mishima family the only wholy good member of his family. Jinpachi (Heihachi's father) wants to be good but DemonicPossession prevents it (instead turning him into a DeathSeeker) while Jin Kazama (the latest in the bloodline) [[HeWhoFightsMonsters does bad things for reasons he thinks are good]] (he wants to eliminate the curse of the Devil Gene but to do so he incites a global war and mass amounts of suffering in order to accomplish that). Heihachi and his son Kazuya are unambiguously evil.

* Billy Costigan in ''Film/TheDeparted'', although he exploits his family's history for credibility as the ReverseMole.
* Michael Corleone of ''Film/TheGodfather'' was raised to be the white sheep; he was supposed to begin the family's shift into respectability. Vito expresses regret shortly before his death that he ended up being the one to succeed his father, since he'd wanted him to be "Senator Corleone" or "Governor Corleone," and Michael reassures him that [[WrongGenreSavvy "we'll get there."]]

* On ''[[Series/AgentsofSHIELD Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.]]'', Grant Ward's younger brother Thomas is this for the Ward family.

[[spoiler:As it turns out, Grant himself turned out to be a horrible person too and additionally, their parents were also quoted as being "monsters".

** Castiel counts in a similar fashion. He rebels against Heaven, which would traditionally be a bad thing, but he does it because almost the entire rest of the angels are [[ItsAllAboutMe selfish]], [[EvilIsPetty petty]], [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]] [[{{Jerkass}} jerks]] who [[spoiler:''actively decide to bring on the Apocaplyse'']], whereas Castiel's rebellion is in order to stop the Apocaplyse and aid humanity. This diminishes his Heaven-given powers and makes him a fugitive from the other angels. So from a human perspective, he's a WhiteSheep, and from an angelic perspective, he's a BlackSheep. More minor characters [[spoiler:Anna and Gabriel]] also count in this respect.
