He'll acknowledge it of course, reluctantly, only to threaten grievous bodily harm on Alice should she breathe a word. But the secret will be out. Even if Alice tells no one else, it will mark a milestone in the CharacterDevelopment of both, and viewers will be better able to sympathize with him.

* BittersweetCandyBowl has Paulo and Lucy; Paulo tries to keep up an outward appearance of being a Ladies' Man, but deep down he actually respects the women around him and is always happy to help them out for completely altruistic reasons. Likewise Lucy has a [[{{Tsundere}} prickly exterior]] but is a total sweetheart towards her pets.

* Aburame Shino from ''{{Naruto}}'' is tall, silent, ruthlessly intelligent and has the creep vibe going for him with his manipulation of chakra-eating insects. He also threatened Naruto to never tell ''anyone''...[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guiA8YR1f80&feature=player_detailpage#t=571s that he has a sense of humor]].

* Kyouya Ootori from ''{{Ouran High School Host Club}}'' is cool, calculating and apparently only acts when it's within his interests. However, he's genuinely caring and considerate, and simply maintains an indifferent facade. He's also incredibly gracious and forgiving towards his near-abusive father.

Added DiffLines:

* Roxy from ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' is usually presented as a hard-as-nails JerkAss however when she leaves The Misfits in one episode her nicer side appears. While she's still not a NiceGirl she's much more happier and sweeter than when she is around Pizzazz.

* Evangeline of ''MahouSenseiNegima'' tries to keep up her reputation as a horribly evil mage, but everyone who actually knows her realizes that that's not really the case. Eva has to keep reminding them that she's ''really'' actually evil, because if she doesn't they keep forgetting.

* In ''Star Wars: The Old Republic'', light side aligned player characters in the Sith faction pretty much live by this.
** When feeling particularly charitable, a Smuggler will sometimes ask the person he helps to not say anything about it, for "he has a reputation to uphold."

* In [[http://hagarthehorrible.com/comics/march-27-2016/]], tough Viking ComicStrip/HagarTheHorrible tells a cute little bird how much he loves the spring, with all the sunny skies, butterflies, and rainbows - then he quickly looks around, and [[BreakingTheFourthWall threatens the readers]] if they tell anyone about that.

* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'': "Gold" may be an exaggeration, but Dr. Forrester at least has a hidden ''heart''. After Dr. Forrester [[EvenEvilHasStandards apologizes to Joel & the Bots for making them watch]] ''Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate'', he tells them to keep it a secret or he'll kill whoever else finds out.



* Traditionally, Willy Wonka is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, but in the 2013 stage adaptation of ''Theatre/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'', he also falls under this. How? While he may have SkewedPriorities, DeadpanSnarker tendencies, and is frosty towards the tour group, including TheRuntAtTheEnd Charlie Bucket, [[spoiler: he's the reason the poor boy found a Golden Ticket -- long story. To ensure a proper Secret Test, he can't let his true opinion of him show]].

* Ice Tray from ''Series/FreshPrinceOfBelAir''. Aunt Vivian dislikes the youth for his thuggish demeanor and lack of intelligence, but Will ends up revealing that when they were children, Tray would beat up the bullies that used to hassle Will because of his love of reading.

Bob is a total {{Jerkass}}. He's the type to knock a guy down and [[[[KickTheDog kick him when he tries to get up]], the type who'll [[{{Pornomancer}} bed a girl then toss her aside.]] Just ask anyone. Bob's a guy you do ''not'' mess with. Come to think of it, just ask ''him''. His "rep" is such that he's a [[SlaveToPR some are slaves to it.]] And for a guy like him, stuff like that is what makes others fear and (sometimes) respect him.

So why is a nice girl like Alice with him? Indeed, Alice knows [[ChivalrousPervert he's always nice to her when they're together]]; she's seen him do a few good deeds [[AnonymousBenefactor when he didn't know she was watching]]. Like [[PetTheDog reading to orphans]], charitable donations, or just plain [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold helping others]]. Thing is, eventually Alice is going to confront him about his [[HiddenDepths true self,]] call him out for his crime of... kindness.

He'll acknowledged it of course, reluctantly, only to threaten grievous bodily harm on Alice should she breathe a word. But the secret will be out. Even if Alice tells no one else, it'll mark a milestone in the CharacterDevelopment of both, and viewers will be better able to sympathize with him.
