The character acts like either a heartless bastard or otherwise obnoxious {{Jerkass}} when he really isn't.

His reasons might be because he is afraid to get intimate with other people because he simply assumes that [[SafetyInIndifference the person will either die or betray him]] just like everyone else he has ever gotten close to. It might be because the person is being stalked by horrible demons, TheMafia, TheGovernment, or some other dangerous and unstoppable entity and does not want to drag others into it. In more light-hearted media, maybe he just feels he has a reputation to uphold as a [=Jerkass=]. So rather than letting anyone get close to him, he behaves like a completely obnoxious douche bag to scare them all away from wanting anything to do with him.

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' FanFic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11822902/1/Not-this-time-Fate Not this time, Fate]]'', Jaune has been forced to relive the events of the show with [[DownerEnding everyone dying at the end]] hundreds, if not thousands of times. In order not to become friends with the show's main cast - as he knows they are going to die sooner or later - he decides to fend them away by pretending to be a [[LazyBum lazy,]] [[FantasticRacism racist]] {{Jerkass}}, who casually seduces random women, doesn't give a damn about his teammates and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking dishes out spoilers without a warning]]. It mostly works, except with Yang who partially sees through his disguise and Ruby, who is so friendly that she likes Jaune anyway.

* ''Anime/DragonballZ'': Goku acted this way towards Uub during the final episode to bring out his aggression. In reality Goku is kindness incarnate, and was just [[{{Troll}} trolling]] Uub so he'd show his true power. He apologizes after the fight is over.

*[[Series/{{House}} Dr. House]] definitely had moments where his jerkassery was genuine, but he shows many times that he's capable of a lot more love and compassion than he wants people to think.

''Anime/YuGiOh'' Seto Kaiba appears to be this. He is constantly acting as a Jerkass to others, mostly to hide his own inner fears caused by his trauma of living with his adoptive father, Gozaburo Kaiba.
