* [[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.

TheManBehindTheCurtain. Don't confuse with the ScoobyDooHoax, although that also involves wearing a monster suit.

* King Boo from ''VideoGame/{{Luigis Mansion}}'' would probably fit into this category with his [[spoiler: Bowser suit]].
* The FinalBoss of ''{{Okami}}'' gives Yu Yevon a run for its money: [[spoiler: Yami the Dark Lord is actually a harmless baby seal in a jar controlling a gargantuan, mechanical sphere.]]
* [[spoiler: Shadow Mitsuo]] from ''{{Persona 4}}'' is a creepy floating baby capable of summoning an "outer shell" in the shape of a giant, pixelated 8-bit warrior. Though the real deal is far more dangerous than the shell.

* Similar to the ''DannyPhantom'' above, Se?Siniestro from ''[[ElTigre Manny Riviera: The Adventure of El Tigre]]'', is just classmate of Manny and Frida with a knack for controlling a titanical battle suit which in turn can control an ''[[MetaMecha even bigger]]''[[MetaMecha battle suit]].
