* In {{Neopets}}: [[spoiler: Xandra in the "Faerie's Ruin" plot initially has a facade of a helpful and nerdy innocent appearance with anger issues (even using glasses to appear more innocent]] [[http://images.neopets.com/faerieland/tfr_fa61c26562/conv/2_9815d2d41a.png pictured here]]. However she is revealed to be a WellIntentionedExtremist with a completely "machiavellian" and [[AGodAmI egomaniacal personality]] [[http://www.drsloth.com/p/view/162912/ pictured here]].

* ''Manga/OnePiece'': During the Syrup Village arc, we meet Klahadore, the butler and caretaker of the local IllGirl Kaya. He initially seems to care for Kaya and her well-being... but is soon revealed to be Kuro, former leader of the Black Cat Pirates, who had been planning for three years to kill her and take her inheritance for himself so he could comfortably retire. When Kaya discovers the truth, Kuro outright spells out to her that he absolutely ''hated'' every second of his servitude to her and "endured" it.
-->'''Kuro''': I, who was once the dreaded Captain Kuro, bowed and scraped to a spoiled little girl, and catered to her every whim... Can you fathom my humiliation?

* Music/Slipknot's song "The Devil in I" certainly gives off this feeling.

* The ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' character Adrien is the "superhero as true self" variant of this trope. As Chat Noir, he's an adventurous, wisecracking CasanovaWannabe. As Adrien, he's a lonely child at the mercy of a neglectful father who forces him to maintain a somber, perfect reputation. Activating his Miraculous' disguise gives Chat the freedom to act in ways that he never could otherwise (although many of 'Adrien's' insecurities definitely carry over).

* Throughout [[Film/Ghostbusters2016 the 2016 reboot]] of ''Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}}'', Jillian Holtzmann comes off as a confident, flirty, cocky and light-hearted eccentric who casually throws herself into danger, is barely fazed by anything and [[TheGadfly takes eager delight in teasing and]] {{Troll}}ing everyone around her. Until the very end, when she eagerly stands up to make a toast to her fellow Ghostbusters in a bar -- and, much to their surprise, awkwardly stammers out a heartfelt and sincere tribute to her newfound friends and how much having them in her life means to her, while being on the verge of tears all the way through. It's a suggestion that beneath her self-assured cockiness and charm, she's a much lonelier, insecure and vulnerable woman than she'd previously let on.

* ''Literature/SherlockHolmes'' may be a jerk, but the one time he shows his softer side is [[SugarAndIcePersonality when Watson is wounded.]]
** Ironically, he's not hiding his jerky side or whatever, but he does deeply care for Watson. The only time when Watson sees it, however, is when he's wounded.

* Virtually every main character in ''VisualNovel/{{Nameless}}'' is hiding something beneath their masks, whether it be friendliness masking {{yandere}}ness or confidence masking identity issues. Even the protagonist is hiding her doll-collecting hobby from her friends out of fear that she won't be accepted otherwise.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11864574/3/Like-A-Wish Like A Wish]]'', Kallen muses that Lelouch Lamperouge and the Demon King were both masks while [[ThatManIsDead Lelouch vi Britannia is dead]], meaning Zero was the real Lelocuh. She wonders at the irony that the only time Lelouch isn't wearing a metaphorical mask is when he wears a physical one instead.
