* ''FatherTed'' had a parody of Irish singer Daniel O'Donnell. Like O'Donnell, Eoin [=McLove=] is a "Housewives' Favourite" who performs quietly pleasant acoustic songs. Unlike O'Donnell, he's actually a PsychopathicManchild.
* In one episode of ''{{Cybill}}'', Cybill's car gets towed away when she parked on Creator/BettyWhite's parking place. Reason: "In real life, Betty White actually isn't such a nice person."

** Lisa's onetime idol Alaska Nebraska, a parody of Series/HannahMontana (and possibly Creator/MileyCyrus herself) voiced by Creator/EllenPage. A wholesome teen idol on television and in her music, Alaska Nebraska is dismissive and vain when Lisa finally gets to meet her.

* Baby Herman of ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''. When the cameras stop rolling, he turns from a cute baby to a foul-mouthed, cigar-smoking, womanizing JerkAss. We later learn he is actually a JerkWithAHeartOfGold when he offers to hire Eddie Valiant to clear Roger's name, explaining that he and Roger are actually close friends. In all fairness, he is stricken with a [[CantGrowUp "fifty-year-old lust and a three-year-old dinky."]]

* Nom Nom from ''WesternAnimation/WeBareBears'' is an adorable little koala who stars in cutesy viral videos. But off the camera, he's a snooty egomaniac who looks down on his fans. He's also not above trying to manipulate Grizzly, Panda, and Ice Bear in his schemes to stay in the spotlight.

* In ''YuruYuri'', Chinatsu is sometimes forced to cosplay as Mirakurun, the main character of the ShowWithinAShow that Kyouko likes. She will often put on a cutesy display when entertaining a younger child, but then either break character the moment said child disappears (but is still within earshot, such as going to another room in a house), or does/says something that breaks said child's illusion/depiction of Mirakurun as a hero.
* Soji, Reina's uncle in ''YandereKanojo''. It's kinda downplayed that he's actually just a MoodSwinger than actually malicious.

* ''Series/SlingsAndArrows'' plays this straight and subverts it. Neither of which are surprising, as it's a show about actors.

One look at the "ghosts" and Barker runs off with Whopper crushed.
