* ''TheHatefulEight'' is filled with this trope. [[spoiler: The Prisoner is shown as a DamselInDistress. She is really TheDragon or arguably the BigBad of the movie. The Hangman is shown as a JerkAss, but he proves to be the BigGood of the movie. The Sheriff is shown as an PoliticallyIncorrectVillain, but was GoodAllAlong. The Mexican is shown as charming and misunderstood, but was EvilAllAlong, same with The Cow Puncher. And The Little Man is shown as a head of authority, but is really a Mook. The Bounty Hunter seems like a nobleman, but is really an AntiHero, or a SociopathicHero. And the Confederate is shown as a nice old man, until The Bounty Hunter shows up, then he reveals himself to be a RacistGrandpa. The first half of the film focuses on each of the characters, so that the viewer can grow attached to them, making the reveals later powerful.]]

* Anime/AkameGaKill is filled with GrayAndGreyMorality characters, but one of the characters on the side against the Night Raid is Seryu. She is first shown as a nice girl who has a tragic backstory of losing her parents and has a strong belief in justice. She is even shown getting along with one of the Night Raid members, unknowingly, and helping out citizens of the Empire. She is also shown being a lab rat for the Empire's research. All this makes her seem TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth. [[spoiler: Then comes the reveal that Seryu is a blood thirty, [[AxCrazy psychopath]] who enjoys hurting and murdering people. Her belief in justice, turn out to be a convenient excuse, and she picks and chooses who is worthy of it or not. She kills many innocent civilians, if their not on the side of the Empire. And if the audience was holding out for a HeelFaceTurn moment, those hopes end after she is shown [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill brutally murdering Sheele]] and enjoying every minute of it.

* ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' has a very spoiler-y instance of this when [[spoiler:Kylo Ren, revealed as Ben Solo, confronts his father on Starkiller Base. Han tries to talk him down, and Kylo seems to be listening, admitting to feeling conflicted and asking for Han's help. Then he murders Han, ensuring his fall to the Dark Side so he doesn't have to feel conflicted anymore.]]

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' ''Volume 3'', [[DarkChick Emerald]] picks up Ruby's dropped purse and has a friendly chat with Team RWBY, praising how they fought in their previous match against Team ABRN. Just when they part ways and you start thinking Emerald might actually be sort of sympathetic, Emerald bluntly states to Mercury that she really actually hates them, dismissing Weiss and Yang as "the heiress and the bimbo" - she only pretended to be nice to them to find out which of the four girls they'd be facing in the doubles' rounds.

** Amazingly, the series manages to one-up this. Selim Bradley is a cute little kid who looks up to his father, studies hard so he help the country when he grows up and fanboys other characters with big sparkly eyes. Which makes it all the more horrifying when the reader learns that [[spoiler:not only is he a homunculus, but the ''oldest'' of the second-generation homunculi and arguably the most powerful and evil. His actual body is a living shadow that tore a group of Briggs soldiers to pieces and left the survivors so traumatized that they were almost ''insane!'' That cute little boy form is more like a shell that he moves within, animating with his shadows. ]]. Worst of all, his poor mother has no idea that [[spoiler:her family are evil homonculi ([[MoralityPet although they both seem to care about her in their own ways]]).
