* Randall in ''Westernanimation/MonstersInc'' is revealed to be just this in the end-credit outtakes: an actor playing a bad guy. We also see that the dour, humorless character Roz is a real joker off-camera.

And when you think about it, villains especially in genre fiction tend to lose a lot, only exist for the primary characters to play off, and often end up looking ridiculous. It's not a career path that necessarily goes with ''actually'' being an arrogant or selfish actor. Still, BewareTheNiceOnes.

* While [[AIIsACrapshoot [=GLaDOS=]]] from the ''Videogame/{{Portal}}''-series is a cold, [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]], homicidal bitch most of the time, her voice actress Creator/EllenMcLain is a very nice woman, who interacts with fans regularily and even voiced extra [=GLaDOS=]-lines for a Portal-themed WackyMarriageProposal!

* The Mistress, Ayane Anno, in ''ComicBooks/GoldDigger''. In the ring, she presents herself as a near demonic dominatrix who has no concept of, or tolerance of, mercy. In private? She adores kids, loves her friends, has a bazillion plush toys, and nearly reformed an entire evil society through sheer niceness. In fact, she'd love to portray herself in-ring as an adorable FriendToAllChildren type, but her eyes are supernaturally intimidating, preventing this. To her dismay.

* The main premise of ''WesternAnimation/WreckItRalph'' revolves around this trope, as the way that characters act in their games doesn't necessarily reflect their actual personalities outside of gameplay.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' episode "Eugene, Eugene!", Arnold performs as the BigBad of the titular play. This is a kid who has helped Mr. Hyunh reunite with his long-lost daughter after the two were separated during the VietnamWar. And, despite Mr. Leichliter's coaching, he's [[BadBadActing still pretty awful at it]], mostly out at protest at the play's excessively morbid new ending.

* The titular character from ''WaynesWorld'' is a pretty decent, if clueless and not particularly socially capable, person. His on-screen persona is an unabashed troll who doesn't hesitate to mock guests on his show and abuse his best friend Garth.
