** [[DependingOnTheWriter Sometimes]] the Joker fits the bill. If he's not depicted as an outright sinister creep, he tends to be played up as a silly, fun-loving prankster seemingly unaware or apathetic to the horrendous nature of his crimes. Sort of par for the course when you [[MonsterClown look like a happy clown.]]

* SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor is frequently this. On the other hand, it's sometimes [[FauxAffablyEvil nothing more than a façade]]. It's a case of DependingOnTheWriter.

* SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom, the main enemy of the ''Comicbook/FantasticFour'', fits this like a glove, proving to be surprisingly likable and charming even ''as'' he commits various evil deeds, to the point where he's had several moments past the MoralEventHorizon {{retcon}}ned, ignored, or smoothed over into WellIntentionedExtremist territory because of fandom outrage. Doom mocks your belief in the MoralEventHorizon!

* The ''{{Sleepwalker}}'' villain 8-Ball carries himself with a swaggering, casual manner. He is completely unfazed by the appearance of the bizarre alien Sleepwalker, and simply tries to smooth-talk Sleepy when he demands to know what 8-Ball and his gang are doing. He even cheerfully accepts Sleepwalker's claim of being an alien without blinking an eye, and kindly explains the Earthly concepts of money and power to Sleepwalker...before he attempts to murder Sleepy by dropping a bank vault on him.

* The ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'''s SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}}, during Creator/ChrisClaremont's first run, went from revenge-obsessed wacko to head of Xavier Institute to not quite back again, thanks in large part to his portrayal as an Affably Evil WellIntentionedExtremist.

** ComicBook/TheRiddler, in his own quirky, InsufferableGenius way. When he's not, you know, having a crazed VillainousBreakdown.

* Otto Octavius, better known as Franchise/SpiderMan's nemesis, DoctorOctopus, once rented a room from Aunt May, and behaved like a perfect gentleman, even helping her around the house. He also came very near to marrying her, after she somehow inherited a nuclear plant. May's inability to understand that he was a bad person was a running gag for a long while.

* Charon from ''Negation'' is the epitome of this trope. The cosmic-powered ruler of a universe-spanning empire that everyone lives in fear of acts like a laid-back, ridiculously mellow guy without a care in the world. [[spoiler:Justified in that he purged himself of all his negative emotions eons ago.]]
