* [[StringyHairedGhostGirl Sawako]] of ''KimiNiTodoke'' looks frightening to her classmates who therefore avoid her, which prevents her from developing social skills, which causes her classmates to avoid her even more in a vicious cycle of high school drama. Turns out she's perfectly sweet and sincerely cares for everyone despite how they treat her. This becomes apparent when she gains the courage to make lasting relationships, becoming a valued member of her friend group.

* Knuckles the Echidna from SonicTheHedgehog. He is openly misunderstood for his solitude and serious personality. However, Knuckle's intentions are good and he acts in a respectful manner whenever someone doesnt make him angry. Knuckles thinks different than the other characters, which leads him to be openly mistaken for {{Jerkass}}, despite him usually being right.

[[spoiler:You later get to find out, however, (especially if you date him in the female route of Portable) that he's actually a very nice guy that cares about his friends, but the guilt over killing Ken's mother in an accident that occured prior to the game's events made him push other people away from him both as a way of self-punishment, and also as a way to avoid accidentally hurting them as well.]]

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' has Shinjiro Aragaki. At first, he might give the impression of being an intimidating and anti-social delinquent.

* Addie Clark, a.k.a. "The Governess", from ''{{Bizenghast}}'' is a posthumous example. When the series began, Addie was one of the ghosts who haunted Dinah's home, which was originally a school and before that a hospital which had burned down. It's been implied that Addie had been responsible for killing numerous children when the house was St. Lyman's School for Boys, and disappeared after supposedly setting the fire that destroyed the school. Over the years Addie's ghost was particularly cruel to Dinah. [[spoiler: Volume six and seven revealed that Addie was nowhere near the monster she'd been made out to be. A kind, young school teacher who made an effort to watch over the younger students who were bullied, she witnessed the people of Bizenghast hang a young woman as a witch one night. One of the men at the hanging was St. Lyman's headmaster, and he knew Addie witnessed the whole thing. She tried to get a letter to her sister explaining the situation by hiding it in a painting, but it never reached her. The headmaster tried to silence Addie by trapping her in the hidden cellar she sometimes taught her students in, suffocating her with smoke that accidentally turned into the fire that destroyed the school. Addie died in a closet along with two young boys. After Dinah discovered the bodies and the letter, Addie's ghost was able to come back to its senses. Apparently, because people had believed the rumors that she was a monster, this warped Addie after she died, and the truth being revealed was enough to give her back her clarity.]]
