* Before his HeelFaceTurn, Vathek of ''ComicBook/{{WITCH}}'' was able to go around Heatherfield without nobody noticing, and that's with him looking like an ''ogre'' ({{Justified}} because he would go around with Cedric, [[MasterOfDisguise who knows how to disguise people]]. After becoming good and losing Cedric's support he has a much more difficult time getting around).



* The Khanate in ''[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Fanfic/Legionnaire Legionnaire]]'' believes that Equestrian Princesses are not women, but demons in human form. Considering just how terrifyingly powerful an alicorn in compared to everything else in the setting, this isn't too hard to understand.

* Schneizel el Britannia from ''CodeGeass'' can be considered one of these. He may be one of Britannia's most prominent royal figures, but masks his true intentions with apparently conciliatory actions, making him appear to be a PrincelyYoungMan, managing to fool most everyone he comes across. Lelouch and Xingke are two notable exceptions. Of course, both have specific and personal reasons not to trust him. In addition, his father knows his real nature, and Suzaku just seems to [[spoiler: assume that he's planning on killing his father, now that Zero is dead. Which he was indeed considering.]]

** As it turns out, trusting a random, dodgy commoner who looks like a RummageSaleReject, smells worse, goes by the name of Reek and always suggests courses of action that should really set alarm bells off happens -- if you're Theon Greyjoy. Seriously, Theon? [[spoiler: Ramsay just had to show how much like his dad he can be when he puts his mind to it...]]

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': How anyone in Westeros could ever trust Roose Bolton, lord of the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Dreadfort]], is shocking. The man's sigil is a flayed man, he comes from a family with a long standing tradition of skinning their enemies alive and wearing their skins in battle, he always speaks in a CreepyMonotone and his favorite pastime is getting leeched. Granted, everyone finds him a little unsettling but still, he's relied upon to perform extremely important roles several times. [[spoiler:Trusting him never turns out well]]
** Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish is obviously up to no good from the moment he appears in ''A Game Of Thrones'' and even tells Ned Stark not to trust him. When Ned does trust him, he betrays Ned, to no one's surprise. In the next two novels, where Littlefinger interacts with the Lannisters/the DeadlyDecadentCourt, mostly everyone seems to think that Littlefinger is just some ambitious commoner who wants to be a lord, and only Tyrion gets how much of a ruthless and dangerous backstabber he really is, [[spoiler: or so he thinks. Even Tyrion never imagined that Littlefinger was essentially the BigBad who deliberately engineered the civil war engulging the continent, and orchestrated the murder of [[TheGoodChancellor Jon Arryn]] that kicked off the plot. He still doesn't know that, in fact- Baelish only confessed it in a MotiveRant to his hostage/protege Sansa Stark, and he is doing it for the sake of power and is well on his way to becoming the most powerful man in the realm. He's probably holding stuff back from her too.]]

** Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish is obviously up to no good from the moment he appears in ''A Game Of Thrones'' and Thrones''. He even flat-out tells Ned Stark not to trust him. When Ned does inexplicably trust him, he betrays Ned, cue backstab... to no one's surprise. nobody's surprise, except Ned's.

** [[AlphaBitch Diamond Tiara]] is a [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] example. She mercilessly bullies the [[PowerTrio Cutie Mark Crusaders]], sometimes in the presence of adults, and [[KarmaHoudini seldom gets punished for it]].

* SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom makes frequent attempts to take over the world that would be considered acts of war by real world standards, and most governments in the world just ignore him. No wonder he feels he better suited to rule the world. This may count as FridgeBrilliance though: maybe world leaders have gotten the clue that all Doom wants is to keep having his little tiff with Reed Richards, so they just lay low and let the ComicBook/FantasticFour deal with him to avoid getting targeted and devastated by Doom rather than just battered a bit in the crossfire.
