* The ''Series/Riverdale'' take on the charterer of Betty Cooper fits this trope. While Betty's demeanor, style of clothing and iconic ponytail definitely seem wholesome as can be, she self admittedly has a "dark side", that may or may not have something to do with whatever mental condition she has that makes her dependent on Adderall. When she leashes out as "Dark Betty", she expresses a lot of anger and a certain degree of sexual repression.

** Laura Palmer, the murdered homecoming queen, is gradually revealed to be one of these - a cokehead with several secret boyfriends, many of them much older than her. It's hard to be too judgmental, given [[spoiler: that she was the victim of repeated sexual abuse by her [[DemonicPossession demonically-possessed]] father.]]

** Donna Hayward, by contrast, is initially set up as the [[BettyAndVeronica Betty to Audrey's Veronica]], the conscientious good girl and best friend to Laura. As the series progresses, her attempts at being an AmateurSleuth and finding Laura's killer [[spoiler: become increasingly reprehensible, as unlike Audrey, Donna puts other people in danger, and even accidentally [[DrivenToSuicide drives a man to suicide]], and she uncovers no real information.]]

* Marty's mother Lorraine in ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' wants to be this, to Marty's understandable alarm. Not only is she Marty's ''mother'', she hypocritically berates her children for acting this way in the future (at least until Marty improves history).

* Gender inverted with Cry Baby's brother from the self-title Music/MelanieMartinez ConceptAlbum. He looks like an average, studious young man but is a drug user with implied negative (or at least depressive) character traits. The entire family keeps up a [[StepfordSmiler facade]] [[HappyMarriageCharade of happiness]] but Cry Baby herself is a BrokenBird. She [[SanitySlippage cracks]] over the album.
