** Raven from the same series is a burtal, [[CompleteImmortality unkillable]] CombatSadomasochist who wears a BlackCloak and fights with claws (that he [[LickingTheBlade licks]]) and reality bending dark magic. But when he's not in a fight he's very gentle and philosophical, at one point having a conversation with [[GeniusBruiser Jack-O]] about his [[WhoWantsToLiveForever constant weariness]] and how he's DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife. He's also working for [[WellIntentionedExtremist That Man]] to try and better the world.

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

** [[spoiler:The Rills]] from Galaxy 4. Fanged, amonia-breathing monsters with booming voices and hand claws that look like a cross between Jabba The Hutt and Satan's pet angler fish. Also sweet, hospitable, and eternally forgiving [[spoiler: even after both the brutish Drahven's and the misguided Tradis crew repeatedly attack them and their droids.]]

*** Turlogh was an exiled alien prince coerced into trying to assasinate the doctor. Even post HeelFaceTurn he still comes off as secretive and offputting.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' has some:
** Shouji Mezou is a six armed 6'2'' foot tall hero in training. Between the fleshy membrane connecting the arms and his creepy mask(which a design book mentioned that he wears because his face put off people and was considered villainous) it would be hard to see him as good if he wasn't such a GentleGiant.
** Tokoyami Fumikage is a bird headed goth with a tendency to talk in a creepy way using over dramatic figures of speech and uses his powers to [[CastingAShadow summon a giant shadow bird]]. He is nonetheless, a hero in training.
** Gang Orca is the 10th top hero. He is a gigantic Orca/human hybrid, whose disturbing looks made him voted in 3rd place in an in-universe pool to choose heroes with the face of a villain.

** Harry's godfather Sirius Black. He's a falsely convicted mass murderer who, immediately after escaping prison, attempts to commit one of the very murders he was falsely convicted of. (The man Sirius tried to kill, who wasn't even dead, was the one who framed Sirius in the first place and was behind all the other murders Sirius allegedly committed.) He takes two forms: either an EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette who LooksLikeCesare and first appears in ragged prison garb, or a huge black dog that's often identified as a death omen. He lives in a creepy old house he inherited from his Dark Wizard ancestors, with house-elf heads mounted on the walls. He used to ruthlessly bully Severus Snape as a teenager, once attempting to play a DeadlyPrank on him (and at the time the story takes place, Sirius doesn't show much regret for this incident). He sometimes seems a bit off his rocker due to the horrible years he suffered in prison. And yes, he's a good guy.

*** He was this since he was young. He was a CreepyChild with large ambition with pride issues, a massive and complex mutal hatred with James Potter and [[spoiler: friendship/ one-sided love with Lily Evans before she couldn't stand him anymore.]]

*** The Twelfth Doctor is pretty much a reconstruction of this trope. Clara goes from being doted on by an appeasing old man with a handsome face to being pestered by a glowering, ruthless pragmatist with a paranoid streak. It takes her until the ending of episode 8 for her to understand he genuinely means to help as mamy people as possible with limited resources and isn't being a jerk for the sake of it.

* ''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, which is probably why he's subject to AdaptationalVillainy in adaptations like [[Disney/TheJungleBook the 1967 Disney version]]. That being said, in the book he's a [[OldMaster wise and helpful mentor]] to Mowgli, and saves his live several times.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': Subverted by Roose Bolton. In spite of being a creepy man from a house famed for skinning its enemies alive, he's on the side of our hero, the just and honorable Robb Stark. When Robb is wondering who to let lead his vanguard, his mother teells him that Roose is the kind of guy that will see him to victory. Robb admits that Roose scares him. Eventually it's revealed that [[spoiler:Roose is actually much more interested in usurping Robb that leading his armies. He does a major face heel turn]].
** Tyrion Lannister, however, fits this trope to a T. Unlike his counterpart in the show, he is described as a deformed hunchback who gets worse as the series goes on. The wound that gave Show Tyrion a facial scar utterly split Book Tyrion's face open and left him without a nose. Still, he's one of the few genuinely good characters in the story who wants to be loved and accepted more than anything else.
