** The games lore have also suggested that there have been multiple Yoshimitsu's throughout these series, and that Yoshimitsu is the title of the leader of the ninja clan that he belongs to rather than a specific characters name, meaning that the character is actually '''multiple''' good guys with an evil looking face.

* From the ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' series, we have Yoshimitsu. What's interesting is that he's always wearing masks, so his actual face is concealed. However, the masks he always chooses to wear look downright creepy and menacing. Anyone unfamiliar with ''Tekken'' would likely assume that he's a villain, but he's one of the most heroic and nicest guys in the series.

* Chiba Seiya from ''Manga/YankeeKunToMeganeChan'' is really a timid, studious nerd, but has the face of a delinquent thug. Naturally this leads to numerous unwanted confrontations.

Being a manga about how looks can be deceiving, it's actually the glasses-wearing female class president who can kick your ass.

* ''Literature/TheElenium'''s Sparhawk is like this, both from his stern demeanor and the nose his childhood friend broke in their youth. But, despite this, and the black enameled armor his order wears, he is one of the most noble around.

** ''Fates'' also features the "generally intimidating" rather than "outright ugly" version of the trope with Xander. He's actually fairly handsome, but he tends to have a serious or stern look on his face most of the time. His supports with Mozu and [[spoiler: Sakura]] specifically point this out.

* Tony Stark, AKA ComicBook/IronMan, when outside his armor, is one of the few {{Superhero}}es to wear a mustache and a [[BeardOfEvil goatee]], making him look more like a traditional villain than a good guy. However, while he can be a {{Jerkass}} and has [[NotGoodWithPeople poor communication skills]], he struggles hard to be a good person in spite of his innate flaws.

ScaryBlackMan. When an actor has this, they'll often be type-cast as thugs, which can lead to a case of MeanCharacterNiceActor.

* Also played with in The Dresden Files with 'Cujo' Hendricks, chief enforcer to mob boss John Marcone. He looks like a brute who beats people up for money, and does... but only because that's his job; he's naturally inclined more to talking things out. Left to his own devices he'd be much happier reading up for his philosophy degree.
