* Mexican American actor Creator/DannyTrejo [[http://www1.pictures.gi.zimbio.com/Spike+TV+Scream+2007+Arrivals+tcfjhDfc0QVl.jpg combines this]] with BadassMustache and perpetual DeathGlare to make him THE go to guy to play Latino thugs in Hollywood. Ironically, he really ''was'' a thug until he turned his life around. Now he's an actor and a motivational speaker and [[MeanCharacterNiceActor one of the most well-respected men in Hollywood]], with ''everybody'' who works with him talking about what a great person he is.

* Letho of Gullet from ''VideoGame/TheWitcher2AssassinsOfKings'' looks like your typical DumbMuscle, except he's also acutely aware of it [[ExploitedTrope and takes advantage of others once they start assuming he is]].

* Senzaemon Nakiri, the Director of the prestigious cooking school Tootsuki Institute from ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'' is a tall, heavily muscled and imposing man, with prominent facial scars. He also bears nicknames like "The Gastric Godfather" and "The Food Demon King". In spite of this, he is a kind and loving grandfather to his granddaughters, a generally ReasonableAuthorityFigure and while he is strict and demanding towards his students, he is also supportive and fair in his judgements.

* MMA fighter "Mistress" Ayane in ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' would love to be a {{Face}}, Unfortunately, she has the coldest, cruelest eyes on the planet and a wicked smile to boot. It's hard to be a hero to children when they run screaming whenever you look at them. It's so bad that even all-powerful sorcerers and dragons wince when they meet her gaze. In fact, when she met a guy who could look her in eyes and ''not flinch'', she was desperate to win his heart so she could finally be with someone who wasn't terrified of looking at her. [[spoiler:It's even implied that her unnaturally cold and fearsome stare might be because she's actually ''not human''.]]

* Glen from ''Film/SeedOfChucky''. Despite being depicted as an ugly doll, and at the beginning of the film, we see him kill a girl's parents, we find out the Glen was having a nightmare and that he's really sensitive and despises violence, unlike [[FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon the rest of his family]].

* Mangiafuoco in ''Literature/TheAdventuresOfPinocchio'' is described as ugly and terrifying, but is not as bad as his appearance implies. He wanted to burn Pinocchio for (accidentally) ruining his show, but felt compassion of Pinocchio when the latter cried for his father, sparing him. Latter, he spared all the puppets and gave Pinocchio five gold coins for his father.
* Geralt from ''TheWitcher'' is described like this in the books. He somehow manages to get all the girls anyway. On the other hand, [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys not too hard to believe]].
* Lucas Davenport from John Sandford's ''{{Prey}}'' novels has a scar across his face from a rogue fish hook accident and, later, a tracheotamy scar on his neck. While being a well-known cop and the main character of a long-running detective novel series, pretty much everyone agrees that he looks like a thug or tough guy. Of course, that often works to his personal advantage.

* ''Literature/TheBelgariad'''s GuileHero Silk has a remarkably untrustworthy face that draws frequent comparisons to rats. He still manages to act as one of his country's best spies and becomes a wildly successful merchant prince, but complains that he if he'd had a more honest face, he would have been able to own the world.

* Ash's Gliscor in ''Anime/{{Pokémon}}'' is oddly adorable, and is a bit of a crybaby, that it's hard to remember that it's part of a Flying ScaryScorpions species.

Cue ''massive'' MemeticMutation once he's chosen.

** 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.
