** And Sora from Anime/YuGiOhArcV. He acts like a cute, innocent kid to get what he wants, but is actually blunt, rude, and smug. This is even reflected in his deck: he uses [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Fluffal]] monsters, which can be fused to create demented and terrifying monsters.

* ''Manga/GakuenOuji'' has several of these. Pretty much any girl showing kindness to the female lead will turn out to be this. The most obvious example is [[spoiler: Seriha]] who is introduced as being friendly and sweet to the protagonist, including saving her from other bullies, before turning on her.

** Heloïse Villefort seems perfectly normal in her first few appearances, with a warm motherly appearance and pleasant smile. She is the stepmother of Valentine and is the second wife of the crown prosecutor Villefort. She is the biological mother of her young son Edward, from her first marriage. Valentine is to inherit all of the fortune, leaving her stepmother jealous because Edward doesn�t get a single penny. So when the Count seduces her and innocently introduces her to toxicology and gives her a deadly ring which releases poison, Heloïse becomes murderous and tries to poison Valentine and her husband, as well as inadvertently almost poisoning Albert and one of the servants of the Villefort household. And she does all this while maintaining her angelic motherly facade up till near the end of the series when her husband finds out what she's been doing and points out that she's nothing more than a murderous woman who's completely lost it before he sends her to an insane asylum.

* At his very worst, ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} of the ComicBook/XMen (or at least a DarkerAndEdgier AntiHero in TheCape's clothing), in contrast to JerkWithAHeartOfGold ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}. Ignoring the complicated mess that is his love life, Cyclops tries to project the image of a wise and noble leader for mutants to admire while keeping dirty secrets from his teammates, such as the existence of ComicBook/XForce, his personal mutant kill-squad. This is after he kicked Professor Xavier out of his own home because he kept secrets from Cyclops. To be absolutely fair to Scott, he really thinks all of this is necessary to ensure the survival of mutantkind after the various disasters of the past few years -- and he might be right. Still, at one point, Wolverine, X-Force's field leader, reminds Cyclops that his hands are just as dirty as any member of X-Force's, since Cyclops organized X-Force in the first place and gave them their orders.\\
\\
Keep in mind, for most of his decades-long existence, Cyclops has always been TheHero and a straitlaced example of a boy scout and a Cape, essentially the mutant version of Superman and Captain America. Even then, many people disliked him, simply because he was an authority figure contrasted with fan-favorite Wolverine, and also because Cyclops' relationship with Jean Grey stood in the way of their preferred ship. Back then, he was called a "jerk". With the new millenium, creators took a hotly debated decision to turn him towards a darker path, being the person burdened first with the continued mission of the X-Men, then with the survival of the mutant race after they were nearly wiped out. While this led him to make difficult choices, fans debate that while Scott's actions are sometimes questionable, Wolverine can be seen as hypocritical when he takes an attitude of anti-violence, repulsion to killing, and reluctance to getting mutant teens involved, since Wolverine is notorious for his blood lust, penchant for violence and for always having a kid-sidekick, such as Kitty Pryde, Jubilee, Armor and X-23.

** However, through CharacterDevelopment, she arguably becomes ALighterShadeOfGray, GoodIsNotNice case of a sympathetic FemmeFatale, who beats up the other Bitches in Sheep's Clothing when they try to kill Tsukushi. Just goes to show that despite all the terrible acts of evil and violence committed against Tsukushi and her friends, almost all villains end up with a HeelFaceTurn, and this series firmly belongs on the lighter side of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism. This would make Tsukushi a rare KnightInSourArmor that [[EarnYourHappyEnding SUCCEEDS in her goals]].

* Lola the Main/GoldDigger lion fish from ''WesternAnimation/SharkTale''. She dismisses Oscar calling him "cute but a nobody." When Oscar becomes famous, Lola starts dating him much to Angie's jealousy and dismay.

Once Angie confesses Oscar her feelings for him, Oscar rethinks his feelings and dumps Lola--which unfortunately, [[spoiler: leads to her great anger as she mercilessly slams him against the windows. Lola then crosses the MoralEventHorizon by arranging Don Lino to kidnap Angie in demand of Oscar's obedience even gleefully Angie's life to do so]].

In the [[VideoGame/TheWitcher2AssassinsOfKings second]], he's a ruthless bastard who tortures people and takes every opportunity to expand his domain, but his actions are still [[PragmaticVillainy mostly rational]]. By the time the third game comes around he has shown his true colours as a murderous, gibbering lunatic who makes the invading [[EvimEmpire Nilfgaardians]] look downright ''benign'' by comparison.
