Contrast HandsomeDevil and VillainWithGoodPublicity, which are inversions, and FaceMonsterTurn, in which a good character changes sides after becoming creepy. CreepyAwesome may also apply, especially in the case of particularly {{Badass}} characters.

** Severus Snape, although it's not clear that he's a good guy until the very end of the series. He likes to hang out in the dark and creepy dungeons and potion laboratories, enjoys bullying helpless students such as Neville and Harry, and is frequently compared to an oversized bat in appearance.

* The eponymous character of the Literature/SkulduggeryPleasant series. Sure, he's personable, hilarious, and has an AwesomeEgo. That does not get rid of the fact that he is a ''walking skeleton''. And that's not even going into his extreme anger issues and the details of his DarkAndTroubledPast.
* [[Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory Willy Wonka]] is the world's greatest candymaker and FunPersonified. He is ''also'' a {{Trickster}}, a MadScientist, and a NightmareFetishist whose factory is a CrapsaccharineWorld and FalseUtopia -- should one not heed his warnings about what should and shouldn't be touched, absurd-yet-dreadful fates are in store, and he'll have NoSympathy. He's a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, even an AntiHero, but he and his world are presented as fundamentally good and wonderful, especially when contrasted to the dreary, unfair outside world that is often easy on the bad and hard on the good. And his strange way of thinking is what's made him the success story he is (to the point that he's [[TheWonka named a trope]]). His creepy-good nature becomes more obvious in adaptations, particularly [[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory the 1971 film]] and the [[Theatre/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory 2013 stage musical]] (in the latter, the character's introductory song "It Must Be Believed to Be Seen" is a WelcomingSong / IAmGreatSong, but stylistically owes a lot to the VillainSong trope...).

* ''Literature/TheJungleBook''has Kaa, an enormous and ancient rock python. He's incredibly old, possibly thousands of years old in fact, and his hypnotic powers are downright terrifying. That being said, in the book he's a [[OldMaster wise and helpful mentor]] to Mowgli, and saves his live several times.

* Post-Winter Soldier Bucky Barnes in ''Fanfic/InfiniteCoffeeAndProtectionDetail''. Barnes just wants to live his life free of HYDRA and protect Steve, and he even tries to abide by ThouShaltNotKill, which is not obligatory for heroes in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. He even helps friendly old people with home repairs and {{Jerkass}} landlords. But his way of protecting Steve leaps over the boundary between MysteriousProtector and StalkerWithoutACrush, and while Barnes is a lot less lethal nowadays, he's still a highly trained cyborg assassin with [[KnifeNut an abiding fondness for edged weapons]].

* Finch from ''Series/PersonOfInterest'' can find out pretty much everything there is to know about someone's personal life and will show off that knowledge in many offhand ways, has surveillance on everyone he's in contact with, and is impossible to pin down or [[TheSpook find anything about him]].

** The Machine, the series' BigGood. It's everywhere but nowhere. It's always watching and sees everything. It can predict and change the future. Its only voice is recorded snippets of various people's speech that sounds like an audio CutAndPasteNote. People who get too close to learning about its existence tend to be KilledToUpholdTheMasquerade.[[note]]This is not its will, but that of some of its misguided agents.[[/note]]

** On the other side of the FourthWall, there's [[TheMissingno Missingno/'M.]] Despite causing all sorts of glitches just by encountering them, (including corrupting the player's Hall of Fame data) it also has the [[GoodBadBugs incredible useful side-effect]] of duplicating the item in the sixth slot of the bag. Many rare candies and Master Balls have been copied via this.
