Plankton goes along to try and get a Krabby Patty, but he appears to turn around and become friendlier. Then [=SpongeBob=] finds out about Plankton's plan and confronts him. Plankton tears up and confesses, adding that "then you showed me friendship, and I realized... that's all I ever really wanted." "Really?", goes [=SpongeBob=], but then Plankton takes the Krabby Patty and says, "No, not really! Being evil is too much [[TitleDrop fun!]]"

* In ''VideoGame/JakIIRenegade'', Krew is one. He shows value on artifacts and doesn't care for the people who work for him, as when five men drowned trying to smuggle a statue of Mar into the city, Krew considers the loss of the ''statue'' tragic, not caring about the lives lost. He's willing to sacrifice lives for his own agenda, and while acting nice to both Sig and Jak, he just uses them to his own end, even sending Sig on a hopeless mission to get him killed. And when Jak tries to stop him from [[spoiler:cracking opening the last Precursor Egg]], Krew attacks him after a failed bribe.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Tywin Lannister occasionally says something that might indicate that he's not as bad as people think but he usually tells them in no uncertain terms his entirely pragmatic reasons for saying it if he's questioned about it.

It is one step more complex than FauxAffablyEvil. Compare and contrast BitchInSheepsClothing and SheepInSheepsClothing. For the more malicious, see ForTheEvulz, TheSociopath and PragmaticVillainy. Also contrast JerkassFacade, also pretty much a polar opposite.

* In the ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' spinoff manga ''Legend of the Piko Piko Middle School Students'', Gendo loses his detached exterior from the anime or good motives, and instead openly belittling Shinji for the heck of it- leaving this Shinji with no doubt as to his Jerk with a Heart of Jerk nature.

* Dex in ''Literature/{{Below}}'' comes off like a wild psychopath, but he plays it up to hide the fact that he's a pretty good self-taught amateur in a field normally controlled by a guild. He ends up helping the party in multiple ways even his boss didn't expect. Yet he's still a complete Jerkass to the core, and can't be trusted around women.

* ''Manga/DGrayMan'''s Yu Kanda may have a superlatively depressing past involving [[spoiler:being used as a guinea pig by the Black Order and being forced to fight to the death with his best friend]], but he's still a [=Jerkass=]. [[spoiler:Informing him that said best friend is ''not'' dead gets very little reaction.]]

*** [[spoiler: JerkWithAHeartofGold is a bit too much. Kanda has shown to be capable of concern over other than himself but "heart of gold" certainly not]]
