* 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, and even then she thinks that Maven revealed herself to be a spineless cowardly moron who sold out to the empire and will lose control in about a year, which is the ''exact opposite'' of what Maven is practically boasting she actually is!

* ''Disney/{{Beauty and the Beast}}'': The villagers qualify, no doubt. Even though Gaston clearly made no effort to hide his {{Jerkass}} nature, such as lusting after Belle despite clearly knowing she isn't into him or trying to blackmail her into marrying him by threatening to send her father Maurice to an asylum, they still love him.

** Even Maurice, Belle's father, initially thinks that Gaston is a decent enough guy only [[BeautyEqualsGoodness because of his good looks.]] He even suggested Belle spending time with him. Of course, that was the beginning of the movie.

** Percy Weasley - if calling ''Dolores Umbridge'' a "delightful woman" doesn't make him a Horrible Judge Of Character, it's hard to imagine what does.

* ''Disney/TheLionKing'': Both Mufasa and [[ChildreAreInnocent Simba]] seem to trust the ObviouslyEvil uncle Scar. In Mufasa's case, it gets him killed.

* The Sultan from Disney's ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}''. The movie even {{lampshade|Hanging}}s this when the Sultan provides the above page quote about priding himself to be an excellent judge of character, and Iago grumbles his sarcastic "NOT!"
** Of course, Jafar had a hypno staff that he used to manipulate the Sultan, might have been doing it for years, so it's not clear how much of the fiasco was due to the Sultan's naivete and how much of it was because Jafar just hypnotized him into compliance that much.

* ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'': This is the FatalFlaw of [[TheIngenue Snow White]]. She completely trusts a creepy hag and thinks she's just a nice "poor old lady", which shows just how tragically good and pure she is—even her animal friends who immediately realize something is up can't convince her not to help.
* ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'': Quasimodo. Especially when it comes to Frollo's true evil nature (until the climax, at least). Justified due to being raised by Frollo for his entire life.
-->'''Esmeralda''': How could such a cruel man have raised someone like you?
-->'''Quasimodo''': Cruel?!? Oh, no. He saved my life. He took me in when no one else would. I am a monster, you know.

* In TheMagicSchoolBus, this trope is usually restricted to Arnold's view on his [[BigSisterBully cousin]] [[ManipulativeBitch Janet]]. However the rest of the class joins in the butterfly episode where they think [[NiceGirl Pho]][[ShrinkingViolet ebe]] ''must'' be sabotaging them by suggesting they make the school mascot a butterfly because the team they'll be facing is from Phoebe's old school on Janet's word alone.
