* The Pretenders in ''{{Transformers}}''. There was never really a "reveal" that within the BadAss Bludgeon was a puny robot (the audience knew all along--it's a MerchandiseDriven series after all), but even he knew how lame his inner robot was.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansTroubleInTokyo'', our heroes are facing a huge ink monster controlled by the BigBad, but luckily the keystone to the entire thing is the cursed artist whose strings are being pulled by the BigBad.

* [[spoiler:Dan Barrows aka Edward]] from ''Videogame/ClockTower''. In the first game he appears as a hideous giant baby-like monster. Turns out that was a suit made out of the people he killed, his actual appearance is [[spoiler:that of a charming young boy. He's arguably ''more'' dangerous outside of his giant fetus flesh-suit, since he's able to exploit his innocent-looking appearance. Oh, and he's the new Scissorman in the sequel.]]

* ''Anime/{{Digimon Adventure}}'' had [=VenomMyotismon=].
** And ''Anime/{{Digimon Frontier}}'' had Lucemon. Also, his [[TheDragon Dragon]] monster suit? An [[http://dma.wtw-x.net/DMA/DigimonStands/Toei/LucemonSM.jpg actual dragon]].
* Kind of applies to the ''VisionOfEscaflowne'' manga, where the BigBad is actually a little kid that projects a much older, uglier image of himself so that he'll look more formidable.
* ''OnePiece'' has Gecko Moria, who hides inside the giant zombie Oars. Though turns out Moria is just as dangerous as the giant zombie.

* Averted twice-over in ''{{Inuyasha}}'' with Juromaru and Kageromaru. Juromaru was tough, but Kageromaru lived in Juromaru's stomach and was much worse. However, Juromaru was a monster of his own, not just a shell for the other.
** Mouryoumaru is an ''{{Inuyasha}}'' example that plays the trope straight.

* In ''TeamAmericaWorldPolice'', [[spoiler:Kim Jong-il turns out to be a [[RefugeInAudacity cockroach from space]]]].
* In ''{{Brotherhood Of The Wolf}}'', the dreaded Beast is revealed to be [[spoiler: a trained lion in a MonsterSuit. Still dangerous, but more deserving of sympathy, given how it was abused into acting like a monster]].
* ''{{Labyrinth}}''. When the protagonists reach the entrance to the Goblin City, they're confronted by a giant robot-like creature. It turns out that the robot is being controlled by a small goblin inside of it.

* ''DungeonsAndDragons'' module [=WG7=] ''Castle Greyhawk''. An iron golem is built like a giant mecha, with many attacks a normal iron golem doesn't have. Its head holds a control room with an orc inside that is controlling it.
