* {{Deadpool}} is known as the Merc with a mouth due to his wit and constant and often nonsensical talking. This carefree and jovial nature is actually a mask under which is severe depression and self-loathing resulting from the many, many tragedies and tortures he has endured. It has compounded more so in recent issues with the death of his former love interest and the possible death of their daughter.

* Kurei from ''FlameOfRecca'' personifies this trope, he even wears a mask! He may seem like one of the most cruel, heartless and sadistic characters in the series, but most of his actions are driven by his love for people he cares about.

** Pacifica. She is introduced as an AlphaBitch, but the true nature behind that is [[spoiler:''not'' pleasant. Her whole family consists from liars, cheaters and thieves, and claim that Nathaniel Northwest was the founder of Gravity Falls (He wasn't). Her parents encourage her AlphaBitch attitude and ''Pavlovian trained'' her to respond with obedience to a bell, and she is shown to be ''quite'' terrified to it.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/{{Evangelion 303}}'': When Shinji met Asuka she came across as an arrogant, short-tempered woman. When they started living together, though, he realized that she was hiding a softer, more vulnerable side. Later on, Asuka said that Shinji was the only one who had seen her real self beneath the mask.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'', when Shinji met Asuka, she seemed to radiate confidence, certainty and arrogance. However, he witnessed one of her breakdowns when they were in her mecha's cockpit, and when he probed her mind, he sensed that she was hiding a lot of pain, sorrow and fragility beneath her feigned arrogance.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'', several characters -Shinji, Misato, Hikari...- comment that Asuka is a very different person than most of people think, because even though she may look strong and arrogant... that is a mask; and her real self is hurt, vulnerable and without self-esteem:
-->Because, like an frozen, unforgiving iceberg, there was a lot more to Asuka beneath the surface.
