* In the WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures fic ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'' (in addition to the examples in the canon WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures post below), once Jade becomes a FallenHero, not only do we see her being DangerouslyGenreSavvy like in canon, but she seems to become even MORE cunning. And her normal, pre-FaceHeelTurn attitude is revealed to be rooted in the ParentalNeglect (bordering on [[AbusiveParents abuse]]) she experienced growing up

* DuranDuran's bassist John Taylor was, by all outward appearances, a stereotypical '80s pinup boy and was often the subject of lust/crushing by many, many teenage girls. What he hid? The fact that when he was a teenager, he was a massive bespectacled nerd who was quiet and unpopular to the opposite sex and spent hours in his bedroom wargaming (yes, ''wargaming''). Fast forward to the 2000s and John Taylor started being highly regarded for his bass playing. In fact, most of his fellow band mates had hidden depths: the weedy-looking Nick Rhodes was apparently extremely popular with the opposite gender as a teen, the complete opposite of his childhood best friend John Taylor, and lost his virginity at the tender age of 13; the heartthrob and Lothario Simon Le Bon was apparently a massive Shakespeare nerd while growing up (as a child actor and model) and spent time in an Israeli kibbutz doing lumberjack and tree surgeon duties while penning contemplative poems during his down time; and Roger Taylor, who looked like a baby-faced James Dean and had a lean appearance, had a real passion for Motown R&B and worked on the assembly line at a factory while the band were waiting for their big break.

** The ''ComicBook/XMen'' include Beast, a furry monster man (originally a human-ish jock type, on the surface) who is a brilliant {{polymath}}; Prof. Xavier, a guy in a wheelchair who is the most powerful telepath on Earth etc.

** Wolverine comes across as an uncouth, uneducated redneck until the team gets teleported to Japan. He picks up part of a newspaper and casually tells the others what it says. Over time, he is shown to be fluent in Russian, Chinese, Cheyenne, Spanish, Arabic, and Lakota, and has some knowledge of various other languages. He's also a highly trained martial artist and samurai.

* MarilynManson, for all his outward appearances and habit of causing moral outcries the world over, grew up a bullied geek. However, it's his BerserkButton to have anyone be "surprised" by his intelligence. Besides for that, despite his tendency to be highly sexual on stage and offensive to religions, he's actually quite shy and conservative in bed (his favorite fetish object apparently is "thigh-high pantyhose" and he himself describes himself as sexually conservative), and he's quite spiritual, taking aspects from many different religions into his own homebrew. He's said he hopes to be reunited with his mom after he dies, he believes in some rather weird things about dreams (namely, that you have access to all of time and space in them), uses symbolism from the Chinese I-Ching belief, has an encyclopedic knowledge of The Bible, even the most obscure history of Christianity, extra-Biblical Christian myths, the occult, and alchemy. In another universe, he could be a religious history scholar.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': After making amends with her, Shinji ponders that Asuka and he are more complex than other people thinks:
-->Shinji nodded. He said nothing; neither did Asuka. Whereas he was used to being silent, having her do the same was decidedly weird. Her voice had a unique quality to it that filled a room whenever she spoke, though its shrillness, like her ego, kept people at a distance. The common perception of her as a arrogant and shallow girl was not entirely inaccurate, not any more than Shinji's label as an introvert.\\
Asuka was those things, certainly, but she was more. Just as Shinji was more. They had both failed to see that in each other; it was both their fault, and they should shoulder the blame for that mistake together. Shinji intended to. Whether Asuka did would be up to her.

* This is a big part of ''Fanfic/HeroesForEarth'', as each of the main characters are not the one dimensional characters from the CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers cartoon. For instance, Wheeler, while a bit of a TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong in the cartoon, in the fanfic, he does have his womanizer, jerkish qualities, but he is also a caring old brother who works on a secret garden to honor his mother.

* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': After meeting [[spoiler:Aki,]] Rei shows herself to be quite the artist. Her pictures are pretty amazing, and she even got a letter from a gallery.

* This is a persisting element in ''Fanfic/SoulEaterTroubledSouls''. You think you know a character, then something is revealed, whether a hobby or a characteristic, that changes your perception of them. It's best to read the fic itself or at least check out the character pages for details because there’s too many examples to list.
