** In a GenreSavvy moment, ex-demon Anya says, "Well, those are the ones you have to watch out for the most. Responsible types. (...) Responsible people are always so concerned about being good all the time that when they finally get a taste of being bad, they can't get enough."

* One discussing the whole "Who's the best Captain in ''Franchise/StarTrek''?" thing, many people dismiss Picard because they're not GenreSavvy enough to understand he's an example of this trope in action. It's understandable. You have rough-and-tumble guys like Sisko, a cowgirl in Janeway, and the uber-badass Kirk. Then you have this skinny bald Frenchman, constantly sipping Earl Grey, reciting Shakespeare, and all in all being a consummate gentleman and diplomat. It's easy to miss the fact that he's (deep breath) cursed out Klingons (in Klingon), killed Klingons bare-handed, survived Borg assimilation, survived torture, survived taking a large knife to the heart, told Romulans where to stick it (and backed it up), has single-handedly thwarted having his ship hijacked (several times), has told Starfleet officers several ranks above him to shove it (with not so much as a reprimand to show for it), has caused omnipotent aliens to bow to his gangsta, and has outfoxed at least one member of every known species in the Alpha Quadrant at least once. Beware the tea sipping Shakespearean gentleman, indeed.

** Kevan Lannister is considerably more mild mannered than Tywin but he can hold his own in tirades and has actually schooled Cersei when she assumed him as a YesMan.

** John Sheridan is a polite and affable chap, always ready with a boyish grin and a story about his [[WackyFratboyHijinx Academy days]], which makes you wonder how this man earned the monikers "Starkiller" and "Nukem". Then something happens, the smile evaporates, and you are left with a [[TheDeterminator very determined]], [[TranquilFury icily livid]] and completely ruthless warrior.

* ''RoyalPains'': Divya: "Evan, if you breathe a word of this to anyone I will find a medically plausible way to kill you, and get away with it."

** 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.
