** Characters we've met who belong to House Mormont are all benevolent people but are extremely ferocious if pushed too far.

** House Reed is modest and reclusive, reflected in the members we've seen, but utterly fierce defenders of their territory and the North's first line of defence against southern invasion. In the books, their enemies call them all manner of disparaging nicknames for their "dishonourable" tactics and humble lifestyle, but among such monikers is ''Bog Devils''.

** River Song plays with this trope. Every time we see her on camera she's very "Hello, Sweetie!" and playfully teasing the Doctor in an "I know something you don't know" kind of way. However, it's clear that at some point in her past, she's done something very bad, so much that when a Dalek (essentially pure evil in a metal canister) assumes, as a companion, she'll be compassionate and merciful, she simply states, "I'm River Song. Check your records again." It then proceeds to ''beg for mercy.''

** The Vulcans in general have this going on. They are polite, intelligent, and calm (if not a bit cold and stiff) most of the time. They've devoted themselves to logic and pacifism because they ''had to'': they have a capacity for violence and cruelty that gives even Klingons pause, and the only way they survived as a species was to develop a culture centered around suppressing that side of themselves. Whenever Vulcan rage is unleashed, it's very bad news for anyone in their way.

** There are exactly two civilizations known to have repelled a direct invasion by the Borg: [[StarfishAliens Species 8472]], and The United Federation of Planets. In their only military engagement, a single Federation starship [[CurbStompBattle absolutely]] ''[[CurbStompBattle curb stomped]]'' Species 8472. In a later episode, a member of that species would confirm that the incident caused them to view humanity as TheDreaded.

** Arya at one point encounters a prisoner transport with three men in cages. One is a rapist and serial killer. One is a cannibal who doesn't speak, but tries to bite anyone who comes near. The third is a bland-looking, quiet, polite and soft-spoken man... who reduces the guards, the rapist and the cannibal to whimpering wrecks with a glance. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Jaqen H'qar, Faceless Man.

** Jon is probably one of the nicest people in this entire screwed up world. The gods help you if you harm any of his beloved half-siblings or Sam, or if you push him too far, as Karl, Janos Slynt, and Ramsay found out.

* Game show hosts are sometimes accused of this, and there have been well-documented examples of several seemingly genial and/or jovial hosts being complete jerks off-screen. The most frequently cited example is Richard Dawson, with his well-publicized disputes with production staff and maniacal ego during his heyday on ''FamilyFeud''. Bob Barker particularly with his feud with the classic Barker's Beauties (and ex-production staff members who have sided with the Beauties in various lawsuits) and purportedly announcer Rod Roddy has also been cited. In a more recent interview with retired producer Roger Dobkowitz, there have been revelations that Gene Rayburn (of ''MatchGame'' fame) was a complete jerk to staff and others.

* ''Series/{{Grimm}}'': Monroe is a bookish, [[{{Adorkable}} adorkable]] watchmaker / clock repairman with a passion for Old Europe, cooking, wine and the finer things in life... and a werewolf who could - and sometimes does - tear people apart. Nick is a genuinely good cop who will leave you alone if you haven't done anything illegal, no matter who or what you are... but he will smash your face with a warhammer if you threaten his friends or family. Juliette, a veterinarian and thus a friend of all living things, but when an ogre breaks into her home she doesn't hesitate to throw a pan of boiling water in his face, and when her friend is being abused by her husband she beats the cr@p out of him using common kitchen utensils ([[spoiler:taken UpToEleven once she becomes a Hexenbiest]]). Indeed, it is hard to think of any of the regulars or semi-regulars who [I]don't[/I] fit this trope to a greater or lesser extent! Even the meek Fuchsbau Rosalee; you do NOT want to mess with her husband, or she'll literally tear your throat out, even if you're a big mean Blutbad.
