* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': [[DoctorJerk Taiga Hanaya]] has plenty of an actual [[DarkAndTroubledPast bad attitude]], but deliberately makes himself even nastier to keep people away in ZeroApprovalGambit. [[MoralityPet Nico]] sees through it very quickly and even calls him out on that in [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech #28]].

* In ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', Kirito pulls this to as a part of his ZeroApprovalGambit to stop aggression against Beta Testers. It works, with only Asuna and Agil realizing what Kirito was doing. To quote the guy himself...

** Franziska von Karma is a lot like this. She bears the onus of carrying the von Karma name, which to her mind means nothing but flawless success -- except that she doesn't see herself as the genius prosecutor she's expected to be. This makes her put up a strong front and claim that any kind or selfless thing she does is all in her own self interest.

** Kiriya Kujo combines this with ConsummateLiar to hide his pain from [[ItsAllMyFault losing a friend]]. [[spoiler: He also makes it look like he CameBackWrong as part of his plan for CR to get all the Proto Gashats, even managing to get Emu's help in keeping up the masquerade.]]

* ''Series/StargateSG1'': O'Neill adopts such a persona at times, usually as part of a plan to trick a hidden enemy into revealing themselves to him. While most people do understand that it is, in fact, just an act, it's a little disturbing both to viewers and the characters in-universe just how ''convincing'' O'Neill is capable of acting the part.

** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', in order to push Cabba to his RageBreakingPoint, Vegeta briefly becomes his old SpacePirate self and threatens to destroy Cabba's entire planet and kill his family once he kills him. This pushes Cabba over the edges and he ascends to Super Saiyan.



* ''Franchise/OnePiece'''s Nico Robin putted up a mild [=Jerkass=] Facade in the Water Seven arc, trying to convince the other Straw Hats she had willingly betrayed them. Her reason for this was the bad guys were threatening them with the very attack that destroyed her home island if she didn't comply. She goes as far as to actively resist attempts to rescue her after the crew learns of this before coming to her senses.
** Nami (though possessing a jerkish personality in general) acted similarly in the Arlong Arc. While she initially hated pirates, she eventually found herself wanting to stay with the crew, but being unable to do so because of her obligation to buy back her village. As a such, when she sees her crewmates on the island, she falsely claims to have murdered Usopp and states that she was using the crew to gain money.
** 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 [[TattooedCrook 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, [[BrokenBird and this had lasting psychological effects on the three]]: Hancock's [[GenkiGirl normally cheerful middle sister]], Sandersonia, had a screaming 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...]]

** During the [[Recap/OnePieceWholeCakeIslandArc Whole Cake Island arc]], [[spoiler: Sanji]] pulled this in order to make [[spoiler: Luffy and Nami forget about him and move on when they come to rescue him. He takes it really far too, cruelly insulting his friends nonstop and then brutally beating Luffy until he knocks him out. It actually works on Nami, who angrily disowns him, but Luffy sees right through it and makes him cry when he still refuses to turn his back on him.]]
