* 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.

* An episode of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has our heroes helping an amateur filmmaker by acting in an indie movie. Cilan, who's as nice a NiceGuy as ever appeared on the show, plays the role of the evil pirate who kidnaps the [[PrincessClassic beautiful princess]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' episode "The S-Word" suggests this with a parody of Ann Coulter, who actually isn't a fiery conservative, but is secretly a mellow liberal.
* 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.

* In ''RockyIII'', Rocky Balboa agrees to a charity match with a massive pro-wrestler named Thunderlips, played by then known mostly only to wrestling fans HulkHogan. Rocky tries to goad Thunderlips into a friendly fun match but that soon leads to Rocky being tossed around the ring like a ragdoll, suplexed, back nearly broken over a knee, and finally tossed clear out of the ring well into the audience. After climbing back in the ring and delivering some bareknuckled damage of his own, the match is finally determined a draw and the after match interview reveals Thunderlips to be a pretty okay guy, congratulating Rocky on a good match and posing for pictures with his wife and kids, explaining his actions in the ring as "The name of the game." The final shot of the scene is a newspaper headline revealing that the charity match raised over 75,000 dollars for a local youth club.

The inverse of NiceCharacterMeanActor the guy playing the BigBad, the {{Badass}}, or the ForTheEvulz EvilOverlord is, [[BeneathTheMask 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).
