* Clip from ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' has a facade so thorough, that some characters wonder if it even is one, but Clip is genuinely conflicted about the death of his entire hometown and Rake's abandonment of his people.

* Nick Wilde from ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' plays up the CunningLikeAFox stereotype because that's what society expects from his species. He is dismissive of Judy at first, delivering a dream-crushing TheReasonYouSuckSpeech and then deliberately wasting time in the investigation she put her career on, because her idealism and naiveté reminds him of his own younger idealistic self that was rejected for being an untrustworthy fox. However, as he gets to know Judy and comes to appreciate her genuineness, he reveals his hidden kind and noble side, standing up for Judy against her MeanBoss and helping her solve the case she's working on.

* TheodoreTugboat, of all characters, in the episode "Bumper Buddies". Foduck playfully bumps him, not realising that it hurts so Theodore avoids him. When Foduck asks if they're still friends, Theodore's answer is "Foduck, I am not your friend anymore." TheNarrator then says "I'm still not sure if Theodore meant it, he just didn't want Foduck to bump him anymore.".

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' it is revealed Arabella Figg intentionally acted somewhat unsympathetic toward Harry so the Dursleys would trust her with babysitting him and she could protect him. In truth, she is fairly likable, and even apologizes to him about it when he finds out that she's a squib and member of the Order of the Phoenix.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' pretends to be a bloodthirsty monster of an Ogre so that he can be left alone. Moreover, despite being [[GoodIsNotNice fairly abrasive]], he [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold risked his life to save Donkey, Fiona, and a colony of refugees]]. Granted, he is a more justified example than the most.

* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': [[DoctorJerk Taiga Hanaya]] has plenty of an actual [[DarkAndTroubledPast bad attitude]], but deliberately makes himself even nastier to keep people away in ZeroApprovalGambit. [[MoralityPet Nico]] sees through it very quickly and even calls him out on that in [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech #28]].

* In ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', Kirito pulls this to as a part of his ZeroApprovalGambit to stop aggression against Beta Testers. It works, with only Asuna and Agil realizing what Kirito was doing. To quote the guy himself...
