* Igor from the ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' games looks evil, not helped by the molesty vibes people get from him (and further not helped by his summoning you into the Velvet Room in your dreams) and his long, pianist fingers, but he is a really nice guy and is your SpiritAdvisor.
** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' has Shinjiro Aragaki. At first, he might give the impression of being an intimidating and anti-social delinquent.
** [[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 4}}'' gives us Naoto Shirogane, a KidDetective who is initially standoffish, a bit antisocial and is the dangerous combination of 'working with the Inaba Police' and 'GenreSavvy enough to suspect that your group is hiding important facts crucial to the solving of the case.' When an irritated Rise initially accuses Naoto of treating the case like a game, Naoto doesn't outright deny it, either [[spoiler: until just before Naoto puts ThePlan to find your secret out into motion. Naoto gets intentionally captured by the kidnapper. You then rescue Naoto from the TV and find out 1) that she was a girl passing herself off as a boy out of insecurity spawned from being a young girl in a profession composed largely of men, 2) as a young girl she didn't have many friends so she immersed herself in detective novels and studying, 3) that she was ''right'' about the real murderer/kidnapper not being in jail.]] After this, [[spoiler: she's very open to getting to know the group, though she can ''still'' be a touch standoffish and nervous, she immediately offers to help Teddie to find any information about his true identity, despite not even knowing him very well. She makes doctor's appointments for your whole group to make sure that the TV world hasn't physically damaged anybody's health and offers to help Kanji with his math.]] In summation, Naoto puts on a standoffish hard-boiled facade, but is a helpful all-around sweetheart, dedicated to solving the murders.
** [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Kanji]] can be interpreted as such, [[spoiler:[[FridgeBrilliance maybe that's why]] [[HopelessSuitor he's head over heels]] [[BirdsOfAfeather toward her,]] despite her {{bifauxnen}} looks, and [[RealMenWearPink Kanji's]] [[SweetOnPollyOliver current]] [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday insecurities.]]]]

He turns out to be[[spoiler: an agent for a fictional branch of the FBI,]] who mistakenly believed that [[spoiler: Alpha and Zetto had virus powers which could destabilise the Internet and/or kill all the players of the MMORPG.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Hilariously subverted on ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': [[IdiotHero Kae]][[AllLovingHero loo]] believes that this is the case for [[MadScientist Olaf]]. He actually ''is'' evil and insane, [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter she just doesn't realize it.]]

* ''Anime/SpiritedAway'': Despite initial impressions, neither Yubaba nor Zeniba are all that evil. Neither is No Face, who is seen only by himself, and tells Chihiro/Sen that he is lonely and doesn't have any friends or family.

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'': Somewhat like the above is Sig Curtis, the husband of Grade-A {{Badass}} [[ActionMom Action Would-Be Mom]] Izumi Curtis. Despite the fact that he frightens children with this incredibly scary face (which he lampshades in the same scene), huge frame, and booming voice, and is for the most part completely asocial, he's a pretty nice guy.
