Much like a PhlebotinumRebel, DefectorFromDecadence, and not-strictly-political CulturalRebel, the White Sheep rebels against their family's values by taking on "traditional" rebellious attitudes. Sometimes, one of two variations are seen: first, is when the character actually struggles to fit in with the evil family and [[MinionWithAnFInEvil feels bad that they don't.]] Alternatively, the "Sheep" is still fairly evil, but they rebel by [[VillainsOutShopping acting]] like a [[CivilianVillain normal person.]]

* [[PuppeteerParasite Toxin]] from MarvelComics (particularly ComicBook/SpiderMan). He has the same [[SociopathicHero violent tendencies]] as his parent [[SerialKiller Carnage]] and grandparent Comicbook/{{Venom}}, but his host was actually sane and law-abiding and was thus forced into playing [[KidWithTheLeash Adult With The Leash]]. Toxin is also a bit [[ChildrenAreInnocent more childlike]] than the other symbiotes.

->''"I assure you, I am the black sheep of the family. And while that would normally make me a criminal or a lunatic, in my ''evil'' family it makes me noble and decent!"''

* Sloth in ''Film/TheGoonies''. He's mentally disabled and physically deformed, [[MadwomanInTheAttic kept chained in the basement]], and not even a candidate to be his mama's [[TheUnFavorite Un Favorite]]. More importantly, unlike the rest of his family he's a good guy at heart, opposing them when given the chance.

** 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.

* ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'': Luna is pretty much the only good person in her family. Her mother tried to drive her to suicide, one of her sisters seduced and enchanted men into getting killed in duels and leaving her their money, another sister was a lawyer, and the third was an assassin-for-hire. Though the lawyer at least had enough ethics to stop short of killing people.

* Lena Luthor on ''Series/Supergirl2015''. Of all the families to be adopted into, she got stuck with ''ComicBook/LexLuthor'' for a sibling and [[spoiler: the head of an anti-alien terrorist group]] for a mother.
