* ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'': Playing a Sith? Well, they certainly don't lack for over the top fashion sense in their default outfits. But if you play a Light Sided Sith in-game (particularly the Inquisitor), they are surprisingly friendly while still putting on the appearance befitting a SorcerousOverlord

* Bikers. Sure, there are the self-identified 1%'ers, who run in gangs and act like the criminal scum of the [[AllBikersAreHellsAngels Hollywood Biker stock character]]. Yet for every one of those guys, there are dozens of clubs who join charitable causes such as Bikers Against Drunk Drivers, Pony Express Relay (against breast cancer), Dykes on Bikes who support Gay Pride and LGBT rights causes, and the Perth Biker's Charity Ride (an annual event to support the Salvation Army). There are also religious biker organizations such as the Jewish Motorcyclist's Alliance, who work for Holocaust remembrance and anti-Anti-Semitism causes, and Bikers for Christ, who are dedicated to charitable fundraisers for the disabled and spreading the Gospel of their Christian faith. Of course, they all dress like, well, bikers.

* The [[MixedMartialArts UFC]] tries to hammer this trope home in regards to their fighters in their quest to legitimize the sport. Many fighters are covered in tattoos and wear flashy, punk-inspired haircuts, but behind-the-scenes features will usually attempt to paint the fighters as dedicated family men who are simply earning a living. Management will occasionally even cut a fighter who behaves in a way that breaks this characterization.

* In the video for "Who I Am" by NickJonas and The Administration, one of the characters is a girl dressed up like a stereotypical {{Goth}} girl, holding a sign that says "Who I Am". During the scene where all of the characters flip their signs over, she breaks into a smile and reveals her sign: "Honor Student".

* [[DontFearTheReaper Death]] from '''[[ComicBook/TheSandman The Sandman]]'' dresses in all black, has abnormally pale skin, and generally exudes a goth aesthetic--yet is the most personable and responsible of [[ThePowersThatBe the Endless,]] and one of the codifiers for the PerkyGoth trope.

See also FaceOfAThug, 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.

* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'''s main character, Taylor, dresses in a black costume made of Black Widow spidersilk and armor plates with yellow lenses for eyes, and later uses her bug control powers to use bugs as a mask. She was assumed to be a villain from her first time out in costume, and many characters find her disturbing, intimidating, and an overall badass (though her actions while in costume certainly help those views along). Seeing things from her point of view, she's bluffing or has practical reasons for such a costume (Black Widow silk is really hard to cut with a knife). She's just an awkward and insecure teenage girl who's had a tough time.

** Another punk girl on ''[[NotAlwaysRight/SisterSites Not Always Friendly]]'' gets accused of smuggling drugs or liquor beneath her jacket. She reveals that [[https://notalwaysfriendly.com/fishing-for-the-truth/42651 she'd just bought a tropical fish]], and was keeping it under her jacket to protect it from the winter chill on her way home.

* Claudia Kishi from ''TheBabySittersClub'' is dressed in over-the-top, ridiculous outfits, even though she is a normal, if artistic teenager.
