Frequently overlaps with DarkIsNotEvil.



* Parodied and subverted in ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei''. [[MeaningfulName Mayo Mitama]] has creepy looking eyes, but since DarkIsNotEvil, everyone is still nice to her, thinking she fits this trope. Turns out they are all WrongGenreSavvy and not only is she really as evil as she looks, she exploits this trope to do all the villainy she can. However, it is implied that she does all those bad thing hoping that just once, someone would call her out on it.

* ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'': The Pau'an as a whole LooksLikeOrlok, with gray skin, sunken red-rimmed eyes, long gnarled fingers and limbs and a mouth full of razor-sharp fangs. Despite their ghastly appearances, they're capable of being perfectly friendly, as shown with [[NiceGuy Tion Medon]], who greets Obi-Wan and is happy to help him track down General Grievous despite worrying about the potential battle that could break out in the city.

** Elite Four member Sidney becomes this in the remakes of Ruby and Sapphire - [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/f/fa/Omega_Ruby_Alpha_Sapphire_Sidney.png he looks like he is going to skin your cat alive now]], but still jokingly refers to himself as "this loser" and ''cheers you on'' when you defeat him.

* Samejima of ''Manga/ShinkaigyoNoAnkoSan'' is a great white shark mermaid with a perpetual glare and a mouth of sharp teeth. In reality, her squint is because she's a shark and therefore has poor eyesight [[BlindWithoutEm without her glasses]], and her teeth, like a shark's teeth, are constantly falling out. She's actually a fairly shy girl who ended up being named a awe-inspiring monster by the local boys and decided to roll with it.

*** [[HuskyRusskie Gregor]] from the same game looks like [[http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120705163224/fireemblem/images/2/22/Grego_Portrait.jpg this]], but is an all-around [[GentleGiant friendly guy]] and the FunnyForeigner of the Shepherds.

* Hilariously used in an early ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' case. Ran catches a huge and angry-looking man with CoolShades spying on the Mouri Detective Agency, and he refuses to take off his glasses even after it's seen he is actually a fellow detective. [[http://www.mangareader.net/139-8061-2/detective-conan/chapter-15.html The moment the]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/139-8061-3/detective-conan/chapter-15.html glasses come off]], however, revealed a pair of ''very'' childish-looking TaremeEyes. Kogoro [[NotSoAboveItAll and Conan]] end up laughing '''hard''' at him.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/KomiSanWaKomyushouDesu'':
** Played with in regards to the title character, Shouko Komi. Her beauty and aloof behaviour invites peoples' admiration, but also intimidates them from becoming closer to her. On the inside, she's just a very shy and sweet girl who is incapable of personal interaction and the whole premise of the series is helping her in her desire to make friends.
** Played straight with Katai. He looks like a delinquent and his attempts to appear friendly often backfires. Like Komi, though, he's just a shy guy who wants friends. Hilariously, he and Komi are scared of each other

Added DiffLines:

* Draco wants to traverse the Forbidden Forest with Fang in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'' because the dog looks huge and intimidating but is horrified to discover that appearances are only skin deep and the huge dog is just a lovable coward.

* Sakaki from ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh''. She's tall and imposing, so everyone assumes she's a juvenile delinquent. In reality, she's a [[ShrinkingViolet shy girl]] who loves everything cute and cuddly. The bandages she's seen with early on aren't from getting into fights, but because those cute and cuddly animals she loves [[AnimalsHateHim don't love her back.]]

* In the Team Fortress 2 comics, when the Sniper accuses the Medic of being a traitor, referencing the SlasherSmile the Medic made [[TraitorShot upon seeing the Sniper earlier]] the Medic responds that he was simply happy to see the Sniper again; apparently, a psychotic grin ''is'' his default genuine smile. Granted, the Medic at the time was working with a team out to kill his previous teammates, but not for the sake of betrayal, rather, he had run out of test subjects and, to continue his research, had signed on with a new team, which, as it turns out, was contracted to kill the old team by Gray Mann.
