* ''Fanfic/GhostsOfEvangelion'': Asuka tries to pretend she's more unpleasant than she really is because she's frightened of other people. Shinji and their daughter can see through her mask, though.

** Sakura's older brother Touya sets himself up as a BigBrotherBully who teases her almost non-stop to the extent that she often fantasizes about bullying him back, but he's actually quite a caring person and fiercely protective of her. Nonetheless, the act is successful enough to convince an AllLovingHero like Sakura that he's nothing but a callous {{Jerkass}}.

** Boa Hancock seemed like a [[KickTheDog puppy-kicking]] VainSorceress with no redeeming qualities whatsoever, even [[TakenForGranite turning her own subjects into stone]] for allowing a man (Luffy) onto her island. However, when she saw Luffy protect her sister's brand, and thus their shared secret, as well as make the choice ''not'' to leave the island, but see his petrified friends revived, she allowed him into her castle and showed her brand. She explained that the [[AristocratsAreEvil Celestial Dragons]] who bought them as slaves when they were children burnt it into she and her sisters' backs to show them they were "less than human". Given what the Celestial Dragons were shown as capable of, spending four years with them as slaves would be no picnic, and this had lasting psychological effects on the three. The middle sister, Sandersonia, had a freak-out from just remembering. Thus, Hancock decided that she would no longer show weakness to anyone, including her own subjects. Nyon implied her crying to Luffy was the first time she showed any warmth in her. Naturally, Luffy understood and forgave her. She no longer has to pull this facade on Luffy, [[AllAmazonsWantHercules as she now loves him.]] [[ObliviousToLove Not that he cares...]]

* By the end of the first episode/chapter of ''Manga/Brave10'', Saizou is clearly this trope. He tries to be edgier and more uncaring than he actually is. Really he's just a Broken Bird who's afraid of the vulnerability that comes with caring.

* [[Series/KamenRiderGaim Micchy]] in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11772125/1/Metroid-Kamen-Rider-Generations-Full-Series Metroid: Kamen Rider Generations]]'' often treats [[Series/KamenRiderGhost Alain]] as the butt of his [[DeadpanSnarker wisecracks]] and does have a tendency to ham it up to rile Alain even further. In reality, Micchy pulls this act to make Alain aware that he feigns arrogance to cope with horrible situations. He also admits that he is no longer a jerkass that he once was, but is in fact, a SadClown.
