* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', the Stakes of Purgatory are ruthless and very much capable of killing in cold blood. Behind the scenes, they're not so bad - we see Beelzebub and Battler playfully fighting over Ronove's baking early in Episode 4, and let's not get into them gushing and squeeing over cute little Sakutaro.

** The Phantom of Krankor from Film/PrinceOfSpace (who the characters just call Krankor) shows up in two episodes. In the first he's merely there to assist Mike with a good natured prank. In the second he ''does'' act like a villain at first, but is so touched when the characters are pleased to see him that he relents, accepts hugs, cries TearsOfJoy, and leaves peacefully.

The inverse of NiceCharacterMeanActor -- the guy playing the BigBad, the {{Badass}}, or the ForTheEvulz EvilOverlord is, [[BehindTheMask off-camera]], the nicest, sweetest person you'll ever meet. Maybe they were previously pigeonholed into nice guys roles and they're relishing the chance for PlayingAgainstType; maybe they're in it for the MoneyDearBoy; maybe they're the resident LargeHam and they [[HamAndCheese just like]] playing [[ChewingTheScenery deliciously]] [[DrunkOnTheDarkSide evil]] characters; or maybe they have the FaceOfAThug and got cast because they look big and scary (despite being anything but).

* There's an example of this in the ''AllFleshMustBeEaten'' sourcebook [[ProfessionalWrestling "Zombie Smackdown!"]], in the section about Mexican LuchaLibre: the ''[[{{Heel}} rudo]]'' premade archetype character is a pious fellow who gives his paycheck to the [[SaintlyChurch local church]], and butts heads regularly with local gangs out of [[ForGreatJustice a sense of justice]].

* Certain online [[{{Rule34}} porn parody]] webcomics revolves about actors playing video game characters and main cast is made of guys who plays [[CaptainErsatz tiny-veiled copies of]] ''SoulCalibur'' characters. Actors playing the meanest villains (Nightmare's and Astaroth's counterparts) are quite decent guys.
* Lucy in ''YuMeDream'' is a sweet young woman who's nice to the protagonists, even if her motivations might be a little more complicated than just that. She's also a [[spoiler: dream]] actress. What character did she play? [[spoiler: Sarah, Fiona's former childhood friend and current enemy, in Fiona's dream.]] The fact that Lucy is a different person than the character she plays is a bit of a surprise.
