* Gareth St. James in ''Literature/{{Below}}'' is utterly ruthless, but he can be a nice guy when he wants to be. Finally seeing the [[DungeonCrawling underground ruins]] firsthand, his lifelong dream, makes him jovial and effervescent. Just don't cross him.

* There are many such villains in ''Literature/{{Atharon}}'' series, but the one that stands up the most is Valiria, Manser who kills (and worse!) multiple people over the course of the story and is one of POV characters! She cares about her (current) apprentice, though.

* ''Literature/KingsOfTheWyld'': Jain and her Silk Arrows, bandits who rob Gabe and Clay outside of Cloverdale, and then the rest of the band a few weeks later. The first time, they steal everything except for Clay's shield (Jain says that ''Blackheart'' is too important to take from him), and the second time they steal about twenty pounds of gold jewelry, but make the band breakfast first. With all the money, they decide to give up on thievery and become a mercenary band.

* Valiria from ''Literature/AtharonSeries'' is one, she is even PointOfView character. Ready to kill at the moment's notice, she is still courteous to servants and people posing no threat to her. And acts borderline nice to her apprentice!

** Commented on in the Ian Fleming-era novel of ''Thunderball'', where one of the ground rules of the Special Executive for Counterintelligence, Terror, Revenge and Extortion is that their chairman believes that spending breath on polite greetings is not only inefficient -- and he highly prizes efficiency -- but ''hypocritical'' if they're already locked in to getting ahead through evil.

* Camus's ''Literature/TheFall'' is dedicated to exploring this trope through the person of its narrator, Clamence, who is incredibly selfish, manipulative, and dangerous, but endlessly pleasant and civilized all the while.

* In the post-apocalyptic setting of ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'', nearly all of the Northern Confederation's enemies are [[EvilIsPetty bad-mannered, petty and spiteful]] as well as repulsively and irredeemably evil. About the only exception is, surprisingly enough, the main representative of the ''Nazi'' faction, Hauptsturmfuehrer Halsing, who impresses everyone with his courteousness, sobriety and manners (if not his politics).
