** Snape in regards to Harry. Snape views Harry as arrogant, attention-seeking, and selfish, whereas nothing could be further from the truth.

truth. That being said, it's all but stated he's projecting James onto Harry, [[spoiler:and only because he can't stand the fact that the woman he loved chose another man over him (with Harry being the living reminder of that)]].
** Cornelius Fudge in regards to Lucius Malfoy. Bribery might be involved.

** Albus Dumbledore is nominally a subversion, with one exception in his youth: Gellert Grindelwald, who was the love of his life before becoming Wizard Hitler and his ArchEnemy. He also exploited Dumbledore's love for him in hopes of Dumbledore joining him to achieve those goals, until Ariana's death snapped Dumbledore out of it. It's implied that this bad experience with Grindelwald is why Dumbledore was able to peg the true nature of Tom Riddle (the future Lord Voldemort) years later.

* Jarl Laila Law-Giver of [[WretchedHive Riften]] in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''. She wants to clean up Riften's streets and trusts her good friend [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Maven Black-Briar]], the crime queenpin of Riften who has both the ThievesGuild and the [[MurderInc Dark Brotherhood]] in her pocket, to help her in this endeavor. Literally everybody in Riften except the Jarl knows about Maven's corruption, and she doesn't realize it herself until Maven steals her position right out from under her if the [[TheEmpire Imperials]] gain control of the city.

* Olivia in ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'' sees the [[BigBad White Queen]] as a benevolent figure. This leads her to join the villains, as she thinks that Kyousuke would be better off reunited with the Queen. Notably, she even maintains this attitude after the Queen [[spoiler:''rips off Kyousuke's arm'' (it was a fake arm, but she didn't known that at the time)]]. This is justified by the fact that she comes from a kingdom that venerates the Queen as a goddess, [[spoiler:because the Queen [[RealityWarper rewrote history]] so that they would see her in this manner]]. [[spoiler:Olivia does realize the Queen's true nature when Kyousuke points out contradictions in her kingdom's history, causing her to pull a HeelFaceTurn]].

** Girard Draketooth is an odd case of this - instead of trusting an obviously untrustworthy character, he refused to trust that Soon Kim, an epic-level paladin who oozed LawfulGood from every pore, could keep to his oath and avoid meddling with the rest of the team's affairs. In point of fact, Soon was the only one of the team who ''did'' keep to his oath.

** Cersei, to a fair extent. Like her father, she'll never see anything positive about Tyrion, even if it's dancing in front of her, which often make her vastly underestimate him, even as she fears him by distorting what he's capable of, as well. She started to wise-up about Joffrey, but had been in denial for years about how unstable he actually was (answer: VERY) this very denial caused ''soooooo'' many problems, it's unreal. And, then there's her tendency to belittle anybody who has faith in anything other than power or gold, which caused her to to massively misread the High Sparrow, for one. Listen to her tone when she says she has nothing to fear from him because "he's a religious man". It screams "an idiot I can use because he's religious" in subtext. Rather badly judged, there, Queenie. Almost as bad as deciding that you've managed to cow a tail-tucked Lady Olenna Tyrell...

* ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'''s first act is a history lesson on why King Leoric the Okay became Skeleton King the Genocidally Insane through this trope. On the basis of TheFundamentalist alone, Leoric trusted Archbishop Lazarus more than anyone, even his wife, his sons, and himself. Lazarus was completely enthralled to Diablo and was able to bring about the apocalypse because the king wouldn't even have a stray thought that Lazarus might have been behind every single terrible thing that happened to him and that his mass-murdering ways cheered on by an archbishop may not have been credible against the now-hateful entire kingdom.
