* ''Series/TheFlash2014'' has Harry Wells, who is initially very hostile and standoffish to the team when he shows up in season 2. He very quickly shows himself to care deeply, however, as he risks his life to save the team on multiple occasions. Of course, he would vehemently deny that he cares about anyone other than his daughter, Jesse, but his actions speak far louder than his words and he eventually [[TookALevelInKindness takes a level in kindness]] (although he remains a socially awkward InsufferableGenius). It becomes apparent that the reason for his initially extreme jerkass behaviour was that he was trying very hard not to get close to the team due to the fact that [[spoiler: Zoom had kidnapped Jesse and would likely use her to blackmail him into betraying them.]]

* Mr. Nebbercracker from the film ''Film/MonsterHouse'' is actually a very nice old man, but deliberately acts mean and cranky. He does this to keep children away from the Monster House so it won't attack them.

* In ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'', In chapter 8, Shinji and Misato argue about Asuka being unpleasant on purpose to drive people away:
-->"She's been keeping all that inside of her for a very long time, I'd imagine," she said in her most tender voice. "She never has been the outgoing sort. Not with her feelings. I guess she was so hurt that all she could do was build a wall around her heart."\\
"But why?" Shinji said, confused. "Wouldn't acting the way she does drive people away?"\\
"Maybe that's the point. Humans hide from the pain by pretending to be something they are not. Because pain is only found when something or someone you care for is lost to you. If you care for nothing, you think that you will have no pain."

* Tony Stark from the ''Film/IronMan'' series. A multi-billionaire playboy for most of his days who is never afraid to sarcastically quip and demean those around him. However it masks a lot of loneliness and frustration with his past as a WellDoneSonGuy. He also really doesn't like showing he's got more feelings than "guy who always has a one-liner at the ready" (best demonstrated with his SandInMyEyes moment in ''Film/TheAvengers'' when [[spoiler:Phil Coulson dies]]).

* Squall, the main character of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', chooses to act like a cold, insensitive bastard because he believes that if he forms any kind of emotional investment, it will be broken eventually, so he's better off just being a complete jerk to everyone rather than deal with the pain of loss again after the loss of his big sister.

Further complicating the issue is that he suffers from memory loss (due to use of Guardian Forces) and doesn't fully remember his big sister, preventing him from getting any meaningful closure.

* Asuka in ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'' behaved like a bratty, annoying child so no one realized that she was a sad, weak child. However Shinji saw through her mask right away.

* In ''Literature/StarlightAndShadows'', the drow Liriel begins to fear that her friendship with the sea elf Xzorsh has given him too positive an impression of her species (most of whom would kill him without a second thought), and so tries to put on a jerkass facade to prevent him from regarding the drow as an amiable race.

* Common with the Ice king in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. He kidnaps princesses sure, but he [[spoiler: used to be a decent scholar named Simon Petrikov before TheEnd, lost his fiance, lost ALL of his memories, and only kidnaps princesses to ease his horrible lonliness.]]
** Marceline was on the same road as well, she acted like a JerkAss in the first two episodes she debuted in, but as it turns out, shes really a decent one and only acts evil to mess around.

* Amethyst from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' Attacked Pearl in the Kindergarten, and even threw and tied up Steven, because Pearl reminded her of her past. She was also this way with Greg, as a act of revenge for Rose having less time for her.
** Lapis Lazuli also fits this trope, nearly drowning Steven's stepfamily as a act of revenge for trapping her in a mirror for thousands of years.
