* This seems to be the case, oddly, for Yugi Mutou from ''Manga/YuGiOh'', who gets increasingly punky looking as time passes (his tame SuperpoweredEvilSide has probably been shopping) but actually becomes less dangerous and more reliable. Both halves.
** It never actually comes up outside a first-chapter remark from Ushio about cosplay.
** And also when Bandit Keith refers to him as a "baby goth" early on in Duelist Kingdom.

See also PerkyGoth, KillerRabbit, and ScaryMusicianHarmlessMusic. Compare WasActuallyFriendly, LoonWithAHeartOfGold (a kooky character who is actually kind and sweet), EruditeStoner (who also have more insight than they let on) and AffablyEvil (characters who appear completely sensible and level-headed, but are actually quite twisted and disturbed). Contrast with ClothesMakeTheManiac.

The cause can vary. The most common comes from the [[AnAesop Aesop]] not to judge a book by its cover. Bob may have been wildly misinformed as to how Alice's group acts and is like, leading to a bad stereotype. Another possibility is that the group is very diverse, and the bad apples give the rest a bad name. Lastly, Alice may be a DefectorFromDecadence, or dresses tough to present a tough exterior, or simply likes the fashion statement without understanding what it means. In this last case, expect rank and file members of the group (who ''are'' as mean as they look) to give her grief over it.

* Ian Anderson of JethroTull took to wearing [[http://i.ytimg.com/vi/U7dpasi_l9A/0.jpg outrageous clothing]], especially in TheSeventies (long coats, unkempt hair and beard, tights, long boots, oversized codpiece). made psychotic, bug-eyed faces, and performed with hammy, theatrical, flamboyant (and sometimes saucy) stage moves. He was well-known for tongue-in-cheek, sometimes playfully risqué, self-deprecating humor (or teasing humor towards his bandmates), especially in between songs. Often his fans misbelieved he took drugs, but in spite of having a free-thinking personality, did not like hippies, and was quite outspoken against audience misbehavior[[note]]He understandably has called out audience members over excessive marijuana smoke (as it interfered with his singing) or for throwing dangerous objects onstage (he once was hospitalized when a thorny rose thrown by a fan [[EyeScream caught him in the eye]])[[/note]]. He is very straight-edged, mild-mannered, and a family man, raises wildcats, promotes wildlife conservation, and, as can be noticed by the tone and lyrics of his music, is one of the most intelligent and eloquent rock stars in the world.

How people dress says a lot about them, even when they don't dress to make a statement. So when Alice walks in wearing [[WomaninBlack all black]], chains, SpikesOfVillainy, and sundry other signs of violence and villainy, Bob can assume they mean meanness.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' featured a substitute teacher that the girls were convinced was evil due to his appearance (he had horns, green skin, and wore a torn cape). He turned out to be a CoolTeacher.

* HenryRollins is the muscular, heavily tattooed singer for hardcore punk band BlackFlag. He's also an eloquent public speaker, a published poet, and considered to be one of the nicer folks in the music business.

** A similar anecdote from the Internet has a gamer playing ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' on the subway/bus/train, accosted by an archetypal ScaryBlackMan... who asks if they can [[RealMenWearPink trade him a Skitty]] (or some other RidiculouslyCuteCritter).
