* ''Series/BeingHuman'': [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Herrick]] is friendly, funny, and actually quite polite to the protagonists. On the face of it, Mitchell could do worse than have Herrick as a boss ... or a father. He's also a complete bastard plotting to TakeOverTheWorld. Towards the end of Season 1, he takes a turn to FauxAffablyEvil.

the official title has the American English spelling - Theater
* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheatre3000'': Even though they never forgot the purpose of their experiment, The Mads (and later Pearl) oftentimes have a strangely chummy relationship with Joel & Mike. In the ''Time Chasers'' episode, Pearl and Mike even hang out on her spacegoing Volkswagon van, enjoying a cuppa while chatting like neighbors on a front porch. "So, Pearl: why are you so evil?" "Hmm...I'm filled with hate, I don't know if that helps."

* ''Series/AgentCarter'''s Dr Ivenchko [[spoiler: hypnotises an SSR agent into killing himself, but gives him commands to have a drink at his favourite bar first. There's no reason for this, except it's better for the guy to be happy and relaxed when he dies than otherwise.]]

** Deadshot is a ColdSniper, but not without a sense of humour, honour and politeness. He even tries giving Diggle closure over the death of his brother.

** Gus plays this almost to a fault. Not only are the employees at his chicken restaurant punctual and polite, but the people who run his massive underground drug empire are too. He even apologizes to a fellow kingpin when his hideout is not wheelchair accessible. Whether this is a stone cold facade or simply the way he prefers things has not yet been clarified. It works slightly to his disadvantage, however, when Walt is easily able to identify the all-too-humble fast-food manager as his "mysterious" contact. ** This also makes the moments of real cruelty (Slitting a man's throat unprovoked and threatening to murder Walt's family) all the more chilling. ** Mike the cleaner even more so. He'll happily have a drink with you before beating you down, and will calmly kill you without even raising his voice. ** Todd is mild mannered, helpful and completely sociopathic. [[WouldHurtAChild There's a trope for what he did to make that last trait obvious,]] and it puts him in some pretty nasty company.

What's especially scary is that he seems ''honestly confused'' that his associates can't simply shrug off the cold-blooded murder of an innocent child as a mildly unpleasant necessity or, at worst, an honest error in judgment the way he can.

* ''Series/{{Revolution}}'': Major Tom Neville is the only militia person to be this. This is in contrast to the fact that just about everyone else in the Monroe Republic is a blood-thirsty FauxAffablyEvil sociopathic killer. Be warned though that he can do villainous stuff, and he does not like it when people are rude to him. In [[Recap/RevolutionS1E8TiesThatBind episode 8]], he and his wife Julia didn't hesitate to throw their friends the Fabers under the bus to save their son Jason. After the Nevilles leave the Monroe Republic in [[Recap/RevolutionS1E13TheSongRemainsTheSame episode 13]], Tom Neville seems to drop the "affable" part in [[Recap/RevolutionS1E16TheLoveBoat episode 16]] in favour of being a Jerkass and and a trash talker.

Zachariah is closer to Faux Affably Evil.
** Zachariah is quite cordial even after revealing his intent to help start the apocalypse.

Added DiffLines:
** Zachariah The ArchangelMichael is quite cordial even after revealing a WellIntentionedExtremist who wishes to destroy half the world, but only because he believes it's God's will and [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans what remains will be paradise.]] Other than that, he's generally kind, albeit arrogant. In "The Song Remains The Same", he politely tells Dean that Dean's attempts to defy him are futile, but promises to repair any damage done to Dean's body by having an Archangel possess him. Even his intent to help start the apocalypse.[[TheDragon Dragon]] [[spoiler:Zachariah]] is continually surprised by how forgiving Michael is of his failures.

In his original appearance [[FriendlyEnemy both he and Dean admit to honestly liking each other.]] In "Changing Channels" he admits to Sam and Dean that he genuinely loves [[spoiler:his brothers Lucifer and Michael]] and hates that he's going to have to see them killed. In "Hammer of the Gods" he undergoes a quasi-HeelFaceTurn and teams up with Sam and Dean against Lucifer. While he expresses no regret for his earlier murders and tortures, he's the one to defend humanity to Lucifer and [[spoiler:reveal to Team Free Will Lucifer's weakness.]] ** Eve, the Mother of All Monsters, behaves in a very kind and motherly manner and is genuinely protective of her creations.

** Number 2, sometimes. It depends on which one you're talking about. The one played by Leo [=McKern=] certainly is.

** Number 2, sometimes. It depends on which one you're talking about. The one played by Leo [=McKern=] certainly is. The main character's enemy is rarely a cackling villain; he's your friendly next-door neighbor who wants to read all your mail to make sure everything's okay.
