* Dr. John Becker of ''{{Becker}}'' is certainly this to an extent. Sure, he's really grouchy and [[{{Understatement}} kind of a jerk]], but cares about his patients, especially in the pilot when he uses his own money to buy needed medication for a boy with HIV.

* One issue of ''ComicBooks/ArchieComics'' had ''Reggie'' sit down beside a depressed Dilton, [[PetTheDog give him a pep talk]], and offer to help him get the woman he had a crush on. When Dilton suspiciously asked what he wanted in return, Reggie only demanded he keep the entire thing a secret. He has a reputation to keep as a jerk, after all.

Other times have had him do nice things for others while going out of his way to not be seen doing it or often by BreakingTheFourthWall to remind readers that "even a rat fink like [him] can do something nice once and a while".

* {{Deconstructed|Trope}} in ''HajimeNoIppo''. Kojima is a big fans of Ippo, so when he fights aginst Ippo, in order to make Ippo fight him seriously and to psych himself up, he deliberately insults Ippo and his coach. Apparently, the result is too well, [[spoiler:the fight ended in two clean blows, first blow is CounterAttack from Kojima and the second is Ippo's CounterAttack against Kojima's attack which resulted in OneHitKO]]. To make the things worse, even without those insults, Ippo will stay fight at his best despite his NiceGuy demeanor, [[spoiler:and thanks to the nature of the OneHitKO, Kojima can't remember his fight with Ippo, something he deeply regrets]].

* In SpiderRobinson's novel ''Literature/VeryBadDeaths,'' a main character is a natural telepath whose perceptions of others' minds are extremely painful to him. Fortunately, his perception has a limited physical range, so he just needs to keep his distance from others. In college he repels company, not by [=jerkass=] behavior, but simply by never bathing. Later in life that isn't enough, his range has grown longer, so he lives alone on an island off the coast of Vancouver, British Columbia.

The character acts like either a heartless bastard or otherwise obnoxious [=Jerkass=] when he really isn't.

* Be honest here, if ''Anime/CodeGeass'''s Lelouch Lamperouge didn't act like a ''complete dick'' whenever people called him out on his actions, fewer people would want him dead. He's still a dick, just not the one he pretends to be.

* Cloud from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' acts cocky, rude and detached as part of a 'cool' persona that he is convinced that a former member of the elite military group SOLDIER would have. In his case, it's not out of a desire to keep people from getting close to him, but out of self-loathing for his natural personality, despite it being far more likeable. Only a couple of people actually fall for it, and he readily shows his softer side around Tifa and Aeris, while most NPCs find his performance offputting or a bit desperate. After the [[DisguisedInDrag ordeal]] in Wall Market, he scales the act back to funny sarcasm with the occasional cruel comment when he's lost his temper. Then he has even that yanked away from him by increasing SanitySlippage followed by a [[HeroicBSOD catastrophic mental breakdown]].

After the [[DisguisedInDrag ordeal]] in Wall Market, he scales the act back to much more tolerable funny sarcasm with the occasional cruel comment when he's really lost his temper. Then he has even that yanked away from him by increasing SanitySlippage followed by a [[HeroicBSOD catastrophic mental breakdown]].

* 4Chan revels in this one, believe it or not. Acting like a jerkass is a readily accepted prerequesite for posting which it's users all follow, much like the "be nice to one another" creed found on most websites. If you want to see the facade shattered like a dinner plate hit with buckshot, look no further than the time someone posted ''Love You Forever'', known on 4Chan as "The Day /b/ Cried", where the vast majority of the posters all pretty much began blubbering and lamenting [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas how much they love/miss their moms]].
