* ''The Day My Kid Went Punk'' is an 80s film about a guy who gets into punk music and fashion. His peers are skeptical about this massive change. When he applies to work as a daycare worker over the summer he is almost denied due to his unconventional looks, and he later gets a mother mad that they're allowing someone dressed like him to take care of little kids.

* In ''Literature/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote'', Aya once says Sunahara looks "a bit intimidating." [[InformedAttribute Viewers just see him a handsome guy and nothing else.]]

* Umetarou Nozaki in ''Manga/GekkanShoujoNozakiKun'' occasionally comes to school pissed off and covered in bandages. Everyone thinks he might've been fighting, but that's how Chiyo Sakura knows that he's been on deadline--he is, after all, a {{mangaka}}.

*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.

* [[http://p6.p.pixnet.net/albums/userpics/6/4/19364/1204470178.jpg Keith Gandor]] from ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}!'' may as well be carrying a neon sign reading "I am in TheMafia. Fear me," given his appearance... Okay, so he ''is'' in the Mafia, but more of the [[TheFettered honor-bound]] NobleDemon NeighborhoodFriendlyGangsters variety. The LightNovels describe his face as "the face of a man who, no matter how you looked at him, didn't seem as though he did proper business."

* [[LightNovel/BokuWaTomodachiGaSukunai Kodaka Hasegawa]] not only has the FaceOfAThug, but he's also [[ButNotTooForeign half-English]], so people think his naturally blonde hair is bleached, {{delinquent}}-style, since he otherwise has Japanese features. As a result he has no real friends and people are constantly picking fights with him.

* Simon from ''{{LightNovel/Durarara}}'' is a friendly, peaceful and intelligent sushi tout. He is ''also'' a seven-foot-tall ScaryBlackMan that tends to scare off passers-by with his mere presence. Interestingly enough, the [[HairTriggerTemper really]] [[SuperStrength dangerous]] [[UnstoppableRage guy]] in the show, Shizuo, is a slim blond {{bishonen}}, and so unfortunate people sometimes [[UnderestimatingBadassery underestimate him]] and are crushed by flying vending machines.

* Sawako Kuronuma, the protagonist of ''KimiNiTodoke'', has frequently been mistaken for a nightmare-inducing ghost due to her appearance, [[http://www.mangareader.net/280-58315-24/kimi-ni-todoke/chapter-50.html particularly]] [[TheUnsmile when she tries to smile]]. In reality, she's an [[ShrinkingViolet incredibly withdrawn girl]] [[TheIngenue with the heart of a saint]].

* Yuki Sanada from {{Anime/Tsuritama}} has frequent panic attacks in social situations, which causes his face to twist up and turn red until it resembles a demonic noh mask. The people around him tend to think he is extremely angry or has a bad attitude when he is actually just shy.

* Seiji from ''Manga/MidoriNoHibi'' has a face of a thug. It's why he constantly has a stream of bullies challenging him, which led to how he became so good at fighting. However, underneath, he's actually a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who wants to be loved.

* Tony Stark, AKA 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. * 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 fiercesome stare might be because she's actually ''not human''.]]

They have all found it necessary to adopt more human guises, as their natural forms tend to freak people out.

* In the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' / ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' crossover fic ''FanFic/OriginStory'', Sanchez and Francisco are a pair of twin brothers who work as agents for porn actresses. They are described as looking like walking stereotypes and "feel slimy" when Alex Harris first meets them. It turns out that they are two honestly nice guys who give Alex some helpful advice after realizing she's underage.

* Sakaki Shio from ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple''. He is a huge muscular guy with a scarred face and looks very scary and violent. While that's partially true because he is a Dou fighter (one who fuels his martial arts by rage and aggression) he is the Master who [[BruiserWithASoftCenter cares and worries about Kenichi the most]], going out of his way to protect him.

* Reina's dad in YandereKanojo scares pretty much everybody away because of this trope, along with not being very sociable...though really he's a ShrinkingViolet in the extreme and couldn't harm a fly. On the bright side, he met his wife, an actual [[{{Delinquents}} thug]], because she thought he looked like a total badass. She was wrong, but fell head over heels in love with him anyway and they ended up HappilyMarried.
