* Yuga Senku from [[Fanfic/YuGiOhXross Yu-Gi-Oh! Xross]] fits this description. He acts like a [[MagnificentBastard cocky and arrogant asshole]] to anyone he comes across, but it's due to his lack of confidence in himself and him finding it hard to really connect to people on a personal level and feels lonely because of it. [[spoiler: This is due to the fact that his mother disappeared during The Fracture when he was 6, and was bullied mercilessly during the grieving process resulting in an InferioritySuperiorityComplex.]] He values the friends he ''does'' manage to make (such as Keishi and Takumi) greatly.

** When they arrive at Beacon [[spoiler: The Arc family member]] say things that range from dismissive to outright insulting and condescending toward Jaune-something which does not endear them ''at all'' to Beacon's students. It is implied that they have played a role in Jaune's self-esteem issues. [[spoiler: However, they are [[AngerBornOfWorry alarmed over the amount of trouble]] he could be in due to his deceptions, and they do bite their tongues when they first arrive at Beacon, and (reluctantly) agree to let Jaune be his own man when he proves himself in combat against his father. They also refuse to sell out his secrets, even while they are interrogated by Atlas. One of his sisters even decked a reporter for daring to ask her to sell out Jaune]].
** Cardin and Team CRDL [[TookALevelInKindness grow into this]] after [[spoiler: Velvet saves Cardin from a Grimm, despite their [[FantasticRacism mistreatment of her]]. They become [[UndyingLoyalty tremendously loyal toward Jaune]], becoming very incensed by the Arc family's crude remarks about him, they almost attack Atlas students after Ironwood arrests him, and also are among the few who defend Yang after she was unfairly accused of attacking a downed opponent, and are all too willing to attack Atlesian soldiers to defend Jaune from arrest]].

** Following the ''Forever Red'' arc in the sequel, Harry [[TookALevelInJerkass winds up as this,]] after a particularly awful TraumaCongaLine leaves him with [[ShellShockedVeteran PTSD]], combining with his existing issues. He's snappish, temperamental, and touchy in the extreme, but he's genuinely horrified once it hits him just how much he's been frightening people and how he nearly lashed out at Cedric Diggory for practically ''nothing'', he dedicates himself to helping fix [[spoiler: Ruth Aldine's]] mind, which was damaged after her PsychicPowers manifested in the midst of his and [[spoiler: Maddie's]] massive scale psychic brawl, treating her very gently, and he gently counsels [[spoiler: Maddie]] after she telepathically contacts him in a moment of anxiety and insecurity. Afterwards, [[KnightInSourArmour he's still somewhat grumpy,]] and still has issues, [[TookALevelInKindness but he's generally nicer.]]

** Clair, the Blackthorn Gym Leader is a downplayed example. [[GoodIsNotSoft She never goes easy on her challengers]] and can be very nasty with people who piss her off (especially those with SmallNameBigEgo attitudes), but she's very nice to those who earn her respect, and she gladly gives praise and encouragement to those who deserve it.

* Cordelia Chase shows her kinder side in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10204239/ Mirror, Mirror]]'' when she's in a mirror-verse. According to her, she has to act like a RichBitch or her parents give her hell. The same applies to the Cordettes and all of them have to snitch on the others. In the mirror-verse, it's only Xander and whoever he brings with him so she's free to act like a slob, drive like a maniac, and generally be a friendly though rather destructive girl (such as unlocking her own house by kicking down a door then smashing the alarm system).

** [[TheRival Gary Oak]] is a tad egotistical, abrasive, and likes to tease Ash, but at the end of the day, he's not a bad guy. His teaming up with [[JerkAss Paul]] in the Fuchsia Tag Tournament proves that he has many lines he wouldn't cross, and he's not above giving his Pokemon praise for a job well done.

* In ''FanFic/TheVow'', an AlternateUniverseFic about the life of [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2 Lord Shen]], he starts out as this. Being in his early twenties, the young peacock noble is the prideful and short-tempered perfectionist he's known as in canon, but he doesn't doubt the love his parents and old nanny have toward him. His condescending attitude is born from being scorned by almost everyone as an abomination and a bad omen due to his white coloring, no matter what he did to please people. [[FreudianExcuse Eventually he stopped trying to win people's acceptance and decided give them the monster they were determined to see]]. However, he was the only noble in general to show any shred of kindness toward his family's wolf guard, winning their {{undying loyalty}}. While he initially treats his might-be-fiancée Lady Lianne with disdain, her gentle nature and [[ParentalNeglect vulnerability]] behind her regal lady's facade win his heart. Unfortunately, as his [[AmbitionIsEvil ambition]] and attempts to prevent his fate corrupt him like in canon, [[TookALevelInJerkass his heart of gold has eroded]] by the time of the movie's happenings to the point that it's barely visible anymore. Fortunately, [[LoveMartyr Lianne's]] love eventually sets him more or less on the right path to the point that he [[spoiler:[[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy stops his attempt]] to [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe force her into marriage with him]], prompting her to marry him anyway]]. He also [[spoiler:sends [[TheDragon the Wolf Boss]] and the wolf pack away before his final confrontation with Po, [[SparedByTheAdaptation sparing them from their canon fates]]]]. Following [[spoiler:his return to Lianne after avoiding his canon ending, he retains many of his negative qualities, but resigns himself to live the rest of his life in secret imprisonment of his wife's home so that he can stay and protect her and [[PapaWolf their son]]]].
