* In some continuities of ''{{Cyborg 009}}'', such as the 1980 ''Legends of the Super Galaxy'' movie, Albert Heinrich (Cyborg 004) has a dark personality. Averted in the 2001 series, which softened his personality considerably.

* In Creator/DCComics, we have ComicBook/TheCreeper, adequately enough. The guy is so batshit loco that even ''ComicBook//TheJoker'' considers him a lunatic!

* Onua from the ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' series, at least in his first incarnation. He's a hunchback, his body is completely black, he lives underground, he has gigantic bladed claws for hands, and like all other Toa he wears a mask that completely obscures his face, but ''his'' mask looks like [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason Voorhees']]. This is not made any better in his Toa Nuva form, in which he ditches the big claws for chainsaws. And through the series the poor guy is one of the most helpful, useful, and friendly characters. Seriously, though, in some of the promotional art he looks like a monster that's about to attack Tahu.

** ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' introduces, as a player character, the WitchDoctor, who, in addition to summoning creatures such as spiders, poisonous frogs, or zombie dogs and bears, is a NightmareFetishist, but is portrayed as one of the nicest characters amongst the playable classes.

** Some interpretations of Batman's membership in the {{Justice League|Of America}} are portrayed this way. Everyone has their seat at the table, and Batman's off in a corner being quiet (if you notice him at all). This crosses with his status as CrazyPrepared. The rest of the League is creeped out that this guy has files on how to kill/maim/disable the rest of them. That, and being creepy is Batman's schtick.
* In DCComics, we have ComicBook/TheCreeper, adequately enough. The guy is so batshit loco that even ''SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker'' considers him a lunatic!
* In the early days, SpiderMan was often seen as creepy by many fellow heroes in the MarvelUniverse, even as recently as TheNineties, as seen when he and ComicBook/{{Nova}} fought the Tri-Sentinel. Prominent reasons for this were [[UncannyValley his face-covering mask with giant menacing bug-eyes and his penchant for contorting himself in strange ways]], his [[WallCrawling ability to cling to any surface]], and his knack for [[StealthHiBye showing up out of the blue]], to say nothing of the fact that he is often a HeroWithBadPublicity.
** Also, while it isn't canon, even WonderWoman mentioned he was creepy during his second CrossOver with {{Superman}}.

* Abin Sur of Earth-20 from ''[[ComicBook/TheMultiversity Society of Super-Heroes: Conquerors of the Counter-World #1]]''. He keeps his distance from the inhabitants of Earth because he's aware that he resembles the world's interpretation of Satan and doesn't want to freak anyone out. Doc Fate doesn't care what he looks like and considers him an ally.
* In his early days, Wolverine was the creepy member of the X-Men. His berserk temper and willingness to kill often freaked out his teammates.

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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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]]
