* [[spoiler: Zara the White Ranger]] from ''Power Rangers: Shuriken Force''. She's extremely [[CheerfulChild cheerful]] and constantly trying to [[ThePollyanna see the best]], but it's real noticeable there's something ''unhinged'' about her, especially when [[spoiler: in uniform]] and she's downright ''[[BloodKnight giddy]]'' when killing the villain's footsoldiers, and practically hysterical when angry.

* Hooch from ''Series/{{Scrubs}}''. He's normally friendly and even charismatic, but pissing him off triggers his AxCrazy tendencies. This leads to J.D. and Turk frequently playing pranks on him to trigger his psychotic side, at one point even eating popcorn while Hooch is throwing death threats around. It becomes clearer with every appearance that the catchphrase "Hooch is crazy" thrown around by other characters is ''not'' exaggeration. After another of J.D. and Turk's pranks, he takes four people ''hostage'' and is subsequently fired from the hospital. In the very last episode of season 8, we see him in a strait jacket, proclaiming "Hooch ''is'' crazy."

* [[{{Franchise/Batman}} Harley Quinn]], a CanonImmigrant from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. Easily one of the most adorable rogues on the series. Also likes to pummel people and shoot at them for fun.

In the New 52 she's much worse, just as crazy as the Joker (having been dunked in the same vat of chemicals that drove ''him'' insane), [[DependingOnTheWriter and in some cases]], even crazier.

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' features some of the more well-known ones, such as Rena Ryugu up there in the page image. A lot of the times the characters are delusional, so that either makes them Cute and Psycho or makes them [[UnreliableNarrator appear]] Cute and Psycho. [[spoiler:It's implied that all the central characters except Mion, Rena included, contracted Hinamizawa syndrome during many other iterations of the GroundhogDayLoop each; Rena would be a straight example in every one where she did. We're just only shown one. Well, there is another example of her going Cute and Psycho in the PS2 arcs.]]

* Cilan from ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', probably. At first it appeared as though his burst came from his battle with [[UnknownRival Burgundy]], but in later episodes he starts slipping into this more and more. His flip-outs are mostly played for laughs, though. [[spoiler: Except for episode 69 where he flips his shit at Skyla because he didn't like her attitude problem as well as her not taking her job as a Gym Leader seriously.]]
** There is also the evil Togepi that appeared as a villain in a [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Generation IV]] episode. She spends the entire episode simultaneously tormenting Ash, his friends, and Team Rocket [[ForTheEvulz for no reason other than she likes seeing people and Pokémon suffer]].
* Quattro of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' is sweet on the front, but this is [[SmugSnake revealed to be just an appearance]].
* In ''LightNovel/{{Katanagatari}}'', (Warning, this spoils one of the best reveals of the show)
-->[[spoiler:'''Nanami:''' "My little brother kept chewing his nails, no matter how often I told him to stop. One day I ripped out his nails. He never bit his nails again." (The ninja she's torturing starts to sweat and shiver.) "It's only a story about child discipline."]]
* BigBad Byakuran from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'', and Daisy and Bluebell of the [[spoiler:real Six Funeral Wreaths]].
* Wrath from ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' starts off as naively adorable, but upon being awakened... ''Yikes''.
* Mari Illustrious Makinami from ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion 2.0''. She only appears for roughly fifteen minutes in the movie, but these fifteen minutes show [[NiceGuy a rather nice character.]] As long as she isn't in an Evangelion, that is. When fighting, Mari is absolutely crazy - it is strongly implied that she actually fights simply because ''[[BloodKnight she enjoys fighting]]''.
* ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'':
** Four Murasame and Rosamia Badam from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'', both of whom were some of the earliest Cyber-Newtypes and completely insane because of it. Not evil, just frightened and confused girls with a warped sense of reality (it is not coincidence that they pilot something called the Psyco Gundam). Then ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Gundam ZZ]]'' introduces Elpeo Puru and her clones. Puru herself is mostly harmless but is still a {{Child Soldier|s}} with a deep-seated obsession with Judau, while her clones were all mentally conditioned to serve "Master Glemy" and were coldly classified by Zeon as equipment rather than people.
** ''Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam'' arguably has Katejina Loos, who doesn't look especially bad at first - she's initially rough around the edges, but fundamentally good-natured, until Chronicle gets his mitts on her (and main character Uso even states she's changed since joining Zanscare and used to be nice and kind deep down). To further complicate things, in the novels it's strongly implied she [[spoiler:underwent Cyber-Newtype treatments, which are known across the series for making those who undergo them violently unstable]].
** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' has Stella Louisier, one of the Extended members of Phantom Pain, and [[{{Expy}} the series' version]] of the aforementioned Four. Adorable, childlike, happy... and a supersoldier with mental conditioning and enhanced physical skills from a complex, long-term treatment of drugs (which she can't survive without). She ends up torching half of Europe with a superweapon not out of malice... but because she was scared and had been told that the people there were "bad things" that were going to get her.
** ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'' features [[DarkActionGirl Throne Drei's pilot]] Nena Trinity, a GenkiGirl redhead who likes to wink, mock-fight with her [[KnightTemplarBigBrother violently overprotective brother]] and fellow Throne Michael and throw up the [[VictoryPose V-sign]]. She also gives Setsuna his SacredFirstKiss (also the first kiss for the series), [[HatesBeingTouched much to his disgust]]. Exactly one episode later, Nena blows up a civilian wedding while on her way to the next mission to vent her frustration with having a hard day of work while others have fun. When asked by her brothers why she fired on civilians, Nena simply giggled and replied, "Heehee, sorry, I pressed the wrong button." In the second season, [[spoiler:she dropped the facade as Liu Mei belittled her, and Liu Mei learns the hard way about double-crossing people when Nena traps her inside her ship as it's exploding, [[EvilLaugh cackling maniacally all the while]].]]
* Parodied in ''Anime/GalaxyAngel'' with the CharacterExaggeration of Chitose, who already had some belonging issues; when the Angels left her behind or otherwise slighted her without knowing it, she went absolutely crazy with revenge, once even trying to turn them into rice and eat them. (Don't ask.)
* PlayedForLaughs with Kafuka Fuura of ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei''. This eternally happy, cheerful girl has an [[DarkAndTroubledPast obvious and horrible past]], involving suicidal parents, relatives in jail, ostracism at school, and at least one ''exorcism'', and yet there she is, [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant enjoying life... for a value of it]]. She shows no signs yet of snapping, though people are scared of her and fear the day she does. On one occasion, her classmate, resident LittleMissSnarker Meru Otonashi, tries to "read" what Kafuka is communicating through her eyes at her prompting; she sees nothing but a red screen with the words "die die die die die killy kill die die die" and so forth, despite Kafuka never once dropping her happy appearance.
* ''Manga/DeadTube'' brings the ''lead girl'' Mashiro Mai, her introduction and following scenes are made to establish her as a cute girl, diligent sports girl for her swimming club, sociable to her girlfriends, cheerful smiler all around; what follows that is she being thrilled about murdering someone in cold blood, and ''demanding that it be filmed''.
* ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' has Shiro, the hyperactive, scatter-brained apparent ManicPixieDreamGirl who can and will rip off people's heads with her bare hands whilst smiling like a kid who's just left the sweet shop. [[spoiler:She's also the 'Red Man', the unstoppable killing machine who slaughtered Ganta's entire class at the start of the story.]]

** Tsukuyomi is like this in her earlier appearances. As of her later appearance, she become a full blown {{Yandere}}.
** Chizuru Naba seems to be a somewhat less scary example. She ''is'' genuinely kind and protective, but there are some scary layers underneath... which are PlayedForLaughs.
* Ryouko Asakura in ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', who manages to remain Cute ''while'' being Psycho. However, [[spoiler:the human version of her from ''Disappearance'']] is your standard {{yandere}}.
* Nearly every Diclonius in ''Manga/ElfenLied'', with Lucy also qualifying as a {{Yandere}}.

** Seras Victoria manages to pull this off very well. Her standard persona is a GenkiGirl, but get her into a [[TheBerserker blood]] [[AxCrazy rage]] [[BloodLust and]] you are in for a [[UnstoppableRage REAL]] [[SlasherSmile treat.]]
* Patti Thompson from ''Manga/SoulEater''. Cute CloudCuckooLander who exhibits odd moments of manic violence when she feels like it. Really, we should expect this, considering she grew up on the streets with her sister, surviving by mugging random people. Her 'training' suggests she's a mad, violent thing whose skill in combat has been overshadowed (as is often the case for [[EquippableAlly Weapons]]) by her extremely powerful Reaper meister.
* ''Manga/GirlsBravo'': Lisa is a rare [[ComedicSociopathy comedic example]], since [[CloudCuckoolander she's]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6aL3ZM_FzE loopy]], rather than [[{{yandere}} crazy.]] While she's threatened to have Kosame cap Yukinari, if he refuses her, she's far more likely to cast a summon spell ([[IneptMage provided she gets it]] ''[[MagicMisfire right]]''). Or, she'll simply have [[BattleButler her servants]] kidnap Yukinari and bring him to her.

[[spoiler:Then she proceeds to grabs a submachine gun and shoot everyone.]]
* Diva, the BigBad of ''Anime/BloodPlus'' often acts like an amusingly spacey example of TheOphelia, but she's pretty horribly evil.
* A lot of child Contractors in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' come across this way, especially the female ones, who channel a similar idea to GirlWithPsychoWeapon. Mai in the first season of the anime, and both Azuza and Bai (in a flashback) in the interquel are shown killing or maiming people horrifically while having a MoeStare expression on their faces.

It serve "Master Glemy" and were coldly classified by Zeon as equipment rather than people.
** ''Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam'' arguably has Katejina Loos, who
doesn't help that [[GirlWithPsychoWeapon she IS a weapon]] able to become all kinds of torture devices, and that this is actually look especially bad at first - she's initially rough around the edges, but fundamentally good-natured, until Chronicle gets his mitts on her ''original'' personality.
* [[NightmarefuelStationAttendant Chaos]] from ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty'' is what happens when you mix AxCrazy with LoveFreak while avoiding {{Yandere}}. What you get is the creepiest Moe
(and main character Uso even states she's changed since joining Zanscare and used to be nice and kind deep down). To further complicate things, in the novels it's strongly implied she [[spoiler:underwent Cyber-Newtype treatments, which are known across the series for making those who wants to share her "love" undergo them violently unstable]].
** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' has Stella Louisier, one of the Extended members of Phantom Pain, and [[{{Expy}} the series' version]] of the aforementioned Four. Adorable, childlike, happy... and a supersoldier
with everyone.
* [[DysfunctionJunction A lot of characters]]
mental conditioning and enhanced physical skills from ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' are this a complex, long-term treatment of drugs (which she can't survive without). She ends up torching half of Europe with a superweapon not out of malice... but because she was scared and had been told that the people there were "bad things" that were going to get her.
** ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'' features [[DarkActionGirl Throne Drei's pilot]] Nena Trinity, a GenkiGirl redhead who likes to wink, mock-fight with her [[KnightTemplarBigBrother violently overprotective brother]] and fellow Throne Michael and throw up the [[VictoryPose V-sign]]. She also gives Setsuna his SacredFirstKiss (also the first kiss for the series), [[HatesBeingTouched much to his disgust]]. Exactly one episode later, Nena blows up a civilian wedding while on her way to the next mission to vent her frustration with having a hard day of work while others have fun. When asked by her brothers why she fired on civilians, Nena simply giggled and replied, "Heehee, sorry, I pressed the wrong button." In the second season, [[spoiler:she dropped the facade as Liu Mei belittled her, and Liu Mei learns the hard way about double-crossing people
when they're not being {{Yandere}}.Nena traps her inside her ship as it's exploding, [[EvilLaugh cackling maniacally all the while]].]]

to:

* Yagami Yuu Ayame from ''Night Shift Nurses''. When ''Hanayashiki no Juunintachi''. On the outside, she looks like a normal (if tomboyish) girl, but when a pervert tries to have his way with her, [[HarmfulToMinors she proceeds to mace him with bug spray]], rearrange his face with a hammer, stab him with a box cutter, [[{{Gorn}} mess him up with scissors]]... Did we mention it's a [[TakeThatAudience shounen romance comedy manga about cooking]]?
* Ryouko Asakura in ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', who manages to remain Cute ''while'' being Psycho. However, [[spoiler:the human version of her from ''Disappearance'']] is your standard {{yandere}}.
* [[NightmarefuelStationAttendant Chaos]] from ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty'' is what happens when you mix AxCrazy with LoveFreak while avoiding {{Yandere}}. What you get is the creepiest Moe character in the series who wants to share her "love" with everyone.
* ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'':
** Yumiko Takagi is a sweet, gentle soul who calls herself Yumie and ''go off her fucking gourd'' if her glasses are taken off.
** Seras Victoria manages to pull this off very well. Her standard persona is a GenkiGirl, but get her into a [[TheBerserker blood]] [[AxCrazy rage]] [[BloodLust and]] you are in for a [[UnstoppableRage REAL]] [[SlasherSmile treat.]]
* Yukino-sensei in ''Manga/HohzukiIsland'', who at one point sneaks around the school in the dark, naked, with a wooden sword, ready to beat one of the children to death. [[spoiler:Later turns out to be a subversion--yes,
she's not being snapped and is fucking creepy, ''but'' it was because [[PoorCommunicationKills she thought one of the children]] was Cute and Psycho themselves, due to her best friend and fellow teacher turning up murdered. The kids acting very suspiciously didn't help matters. By the end of the manga, she realizes everything she thought was wrong, clears up some misconceptions about her, and then pulls a good nurse who BigDamnHeroes on the ''real'' [[SadistTeacher murderous teacher.]]]]
* ''Anime/ImGonnaBeAnAngel'':
** [[spoiler:Mikael]] is usually a cute, easily agitated boy, but when under great stress and when things don't go they way he wants them, can turn into a really scary and obsessive psycho. It might caused by [[spoiler:a side effect of his halo falling off.]]
** The same can be said about [[spoiler:Silksey ]]- very moe and doll-like but tends to smash everything apart and set on fire when enraged. Only she was a scary psycho for most of the time during the series and again it can be argued that [[spoiler:it was mostly a side effect of her halo falling off.]]
** [[spoiler:Mama]] can turn into a very crazy witch when under too much stress.
* Yukako in ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' part 4. Initially she appeared demure shy and sweet around Koichi before quickly showing her temper and obsession. She also tends to live in her own world, which
makes her patients comfortable, dangerous.
* ''Manga/{{Jormungand}}'':
** Mildo, a twisted rival female mercenary introduced in Volume 1, who is seemingly obsessed with defeating H&C Logistics Incorporated's resident KnifeNut in hand-to-hand combat.

* BigBad Byakuran from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'', and Daisy and Bluebell of the [[spoiler:real Six Funeral Wreaths]].



* Kanon Nakagawa from ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows''. She's the epitome of the sweet, adorable idol... as long as you don't get on the wrong side of her stun guns, as Keima did. Kanon and Keima's very first interaction was the latter telling the former that he doesn't know who she is. Her reaction is to taze him repeatedly.
* Rio Miyaichi from ''Manga/AnaSatsujin''. She's a cute, socially awkward college student, but also a psychotic serial murderer who favors slashing her victims necks with a box-cutter.
* ''Manga/AkameGaKill'' gives us Seryu Ubiquitous, the "Crazy Lunatic". Regularly, she's sweet around those who she doesn't consider evil. Around those that she does, of course... her personality switches over to bat-shit insane. As a matter of fact, she comes complete with [[BlackAndWhiteInsanity a twisted conception of right and wrong]].
* ''Manga/PrivateActress'' gives us [[spoiler: Kana Juumonji]], a sweet-looking person who commits all kinds of bad actions [[spoiler: including downright murder or driving people to suicide]] while smiling angelically.

* Kurumi of ''LightNovel/DateALive'' is cute and has a whimsical personality but there's a reason her codename is "Nightmare". She has to hurt or outright kill people to power her Angel, but she's also not above killing them just to amuse herself and at one point tried to kill everyone in Shido's school just to prove a point.

to:

* Kurumi Quattro of ''LightNovel/DateALive'' ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' is cute sweet on the front, but this is [[SmugSnake revealed to be just an appearance]].
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'':
** Tsukuyomi is like this in her earlier appearances. As of her later appearance, she become a full blown {{Yandere}}.
** Chizuru Naba seems to be a somewhat less scary example. She ''is'' genuinely kind
and has a whimsical personality protective, but there's a reason her codename is "Nightmare". She has to hurt or outright kill there are some scary layers underneath... which are PlayedForLaughs.
* Kumagawa of ''Manga/MedakaBox'' combines this with StepfordSmiler. His cheerful expression doesn't change no matter what he does; whether it's eating taiyaki (in the creepiest way possible), impaling
people to power her Angel, but with giant screws, [[spoiler:or blinding them]].
* Yagami Yuu from ''Night Shift Nurses''. When

Added DiffLines:

* [[DysfunctionJunction A lot of characters]] from ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' are this when they're not being {{Yandere}}.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''
** Cilan probably. At first it appeared as though his burst came from his battle with [[UnknownRival Burgundy]], but in later episodes he starts slipping into this more and more. His flip-outs are mostly played for laughs, though. [[spoiler: Except for episode 69 where he flips his shit at Skyla because he didn't like her attitude problem as well as her not taking her job as a Gym Leader seriously.]]
** There is also the evil Togepi that appeared as a villain in a [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Generation IV]] episode. She spends the entire episode simultaneously tormenting Ash, his friends, and Team Rocket [[ForTheEvulz for no reason other than she likes seeing people and Pokémon suffer]].
* ''Manga/PrivateActress'' gives us [[spoiler: Kana Juumonji]], a sweet-looking person who commits all kinds of bad actions [[spoiler: including downright murder or driving people to suicide]] while smiling angelically.
* Mari Illustrious Makinami from ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion 2.0''. She only appears for roughly fifteen minutes in the movie, but these fifteen minutes show [[NiceGuy a rather nice character.]] As long as she isn't in an Evangelion, that is. When fighting, Mari is absolutely crazy - it is strongly implied that she actually fights simply because ''[[BloodKnight she enjoys fighting]]''.
* PlayedForLaughs with Kafuka Fuura of ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei''. This eternally happy, cheerful girl has an [[DarkAndTroubledPast obvious and horrible past]], involving suicidal parents, relatives in jail, ostracism at school, and at least one ''exorcism'', and yet there she is, [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant enjoying life... for a value of it]]. She shows no signs yet of snapping, though people are scared of her and fear the day she does. On one occasion, her classmate, resident LittleMissSnarker Meru Otonashi, tries to "read" what Kafuka is communicating through her eyes at her prompting; she sees nothing but a red screen with the words "die die die die die killy kill die die die" and so forth, despite Kafuka never once dropping her happy appearance.
* Patti Thompson from ''Manga/SoulEater''. Cute CloudCuckooLander who exhibits odd moments of manic violence when she feels like it. Really, we should expect this, considering she grew up on the streets with her sister, surviving by mugging random people. Her 'training' suggests she's a mad, violent thing whose skill in combat has been overshadowed (as is often the case for [[EquippableAlly Weapons]]) by her extremely powerful Reaper meister.
* Kanon Nakagawa from ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows''. She's the epitome of the sweet, adorable idol... as long as you don't get on the wrong side of her stun guns, as Keima did. Kanon and Keima's very first interaction was the latter telling the former that he doesn't know who she is. Her reaction is to taze him repeatedly.

* Terra I from the 1980's "[[ComicBook/TheJudasContract Judas Contract]]" arc of [[ComicBook/TeenTitans The New Teen Titans]]. Seems like a sweet young girl; is actually a vicious and ruthless mercenary with distinct {{yandere}} traits -- she's not only sleeping with the much older mercenary/assassin who hired her, she ends up killing herself (while trying to kill him) when the Titans make insinuations he's been unfaithful to her.
