* Anime/TransformersCybertron: The textstory "Force of Habit" had Hardtop, top Decepticon sniper, and comic book collector. He collects comics [[KlingonsLoveShakespeare from Earth]] and other organic planets. While he insists on calling them Graphic Novels, he's quite open about his habits, and quite particular about not letting them get damaged. At the end of the story, all the Cons are marooned on a planet waiting for rescue, Hardtop lets all of the other Decepticons read his comics, but continues to insist that they be careful with them.

* Kylo Ren from ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' publicly dresses and acts like DarthWiki/DarthVader, but underneath that helmet? A pale, gangly guy who [[TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse doesn't look threatening in the least]]. Moreover, in private, he shows a fanboyish obsession with Vader (which explains [[DarthVaderClone his fashion choices]]) and [[PsychopathicManchild behaves like an angsty teenager]]. ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaOSCASqLsE had a field day with this]], as did the "{{Emo|Teen}} Kylo Ren" [[https://twitter.com/kylor3n page]] on Website/{{Twitter}}. Note, however, that his nerdiness does ''not'' make him any less dangerous.

* ''Webcomic/TheGlassScientists'' has a new, interesting take on [[Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde Edward Hyde.]] In Hyde's original book, Dr. Jekyll was so obsessed with maintaining the image of a proper British gentleman that he invented the potion that made him into Hyde so he could go out into the night to strip clubs, gamble, and generally cut loose. In the webcomic, those Jekyll still cares deeply about his reputation and Hyde still spends the nights with debauchery [[BiTheWay (with an even more fluid sexuality)]], but Jekyll's pride shines out as Hyde's tremendous ego. He's a CardCarryingVillain, but he's always [[BigBadWannabe wishing that he could be more intimidating.]]

** Ultimately a [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]] - Kylo may be a bit of a nebbish in person, but he's still a mass murderer who is high in the command structure of a fascist movement, and to all evidence, it's his obsession with Vader [[spoiler:and resentment of his other family]] that led to him ending up where he did. Immature and obsessive is ''not'' the same thing as harmless.
