Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* Sherlock: The title character himself. acts like a douchebag genius on the outside,but is actually kind and caring.

* 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.
