* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' has an interesting variation in the form of the game's Metal Gear, ST-84 Sahelanthropus. It is a walking bipedal weapon, so anyone who saw it would know it was dangerous. However, it only has conventional weapons, and so wouldn't be subject to any nuclear treaties. But, thanks to the metallic arachea making up it's body, it can become a nuclear bomb. [[note]]Depleted uranium cannot be used as such, but the metallic arachea metabolize uranium and give off uranium-235, nuclear material, as a byproduct.[[/note]]

* An odd example: Mephisto Pheles of ''Manga/BlueExorcist'' seems to be playing with this. It's difficult to tell at this point, but his first entrance drew immediate suspicion. He [[VillainousFashionSense dressed extravagantly]], [[ManinWhite wore all white]], had [[LargeHam dramatic mannerisms]], and his looks made it obvious that he was a demon of some sort. Heck, even his [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast name]] [[LouisCypher is an obvious pun on that of a famous demon]]. But then this was subverted as it turned out that [[spoiler:a lot of people have demon blood in the series, and some of them are exorcists.]] Then it turns out that he may be [[spoiler:another one of Satan's sons - possibly his eldest, actually. Then again, the main character is also a son of Satan. So, Mephisto could still go either way at this point.]] He plays loads of "tricks" on his students, such as [[spoiler:letting high-level demons on campus to challenge the potential exorcists (particularly [[AntiAntiChrist Rin]])]] [[TricksterMentor which, he implies, is for the purpose of making them all stronger.]] But then he may have...[[WildMassGuessing some other reasons.]] The fandom suspicion only mounts the more "tricks" he plays, but there's still too much evidence to support the idea that he may [[spoiler:genuinely want to bring peace to Assiah and Gehenna.]] He was in fact friends with Rin's adoptive [[BadassPreacher father]], and was [[spoiler:responsible for sealing Rin's demon soul inside the demon sword when Rin was born.]] Really, he is pretty much the most mysterious character in the series at this point. It's highly possible that he is a Devil In Plain Sight but he may very well be a subversion of the trope. The fandom will have to wait and see.

* ''Film/CapeFear'': This trope is the whole point of the film. It's even more obvious in the remake. At least in this case the local police ''did'' actually believe the protagonist's accusations, [[PoliceAreUseless but were powerless anyway]] due to the antagonist being DangerouslyGenreSavvy with regards to legal tricks he can use.

** In the 1989 film, everyone in Gotham ''knows'' that Carl Grissom is the city's most notorious gangster, but District Attorney Harvey Dent just can't gather enough evidence to put him away. Ironically enough, TheJoker [[BigDamnVillains takes care of that little problem]].
