* Subverted in ''DespicableMe2''. [[spoiler: While working undercover at a bakery in the mall, Gru sees the owner of the mall's Mexican restaurant and recognizes him as Eduardo Perez, AKA El Macho, a former supervillain like himself. Gru becomes convinced that El Macho hasn't actually changed his ways, especially once one of his foster daughters falls for Eduardo's son (though that has more to do with Gru being an overprotective father than anything else). Gru gets his spy partner to help him infiltrate the restaurant, sure that El Macho's evil plan is being stored in the back vault - only it's just a jar of salsa, and El Macho ultimately proves to be, like Gru, a genuinely nice former villain whose only flaws are romancing other men's wives (and just playfully, of course) and owning a dangerous and very mean chicken as a pet. Except...it's all a ruse, as El Macho has a ''second'', much larger restaurant by the seashore, and this one ''does'' have a hidden lair where El Macho ''is'' hatching a scheme for world domination (which Gru's allies never could have uncovered without Gru's help, since they were sure they'd caught the actual culprit earlier). What makes TheReveal (or Un-Unreveal, perhaps) even more effective is the movie's invocation and then subversion of both PositiveDiscrimination (Eduardo is Mexican while Gru is some sort of white ethnic) and BrainsEvilBrawnGood (Eduardo is a former professional wrestler and sex symbol, while Gru is very much a {{Nerd}} and genuinely ugly to behold).]]

* Princess Marie from Season 15 of ''Webcomic/SurvivorFanCharacters''. Many characters and readers suspected her of being another [[BitchInSheepsClothing Bonnie]], especially after some comments from her that seemed just a bit too shady to fit with her seeming sweet girl nature, but her dubious explanation that she's just under a curse that causes her statements to sound more passive-aggressive than they should be turns out to be completely true.

* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'': Tonio Trussardi/Trendy from 'Diamond Is Unbreakable' is a seemingly kind SupremeChef Stand User who can create food that heals his customer's ailments. All throughout the episode, Josuke, along with the audience, is repeatedly lead to believe that Tonio's food is either deadly, made from parts of other customers, made from dogs that he feeds it to, or something equally horrific. However, despite everything pointing to him being secretly evil, he ends up being entirely genuine in his desire to serve his customers healthy and delicious food, and he wasn't even aware that there were other Stand Users.

*''Videogame/PonyIsland'': [[spoiler: The Hopeless Soul [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation may]] be an example- there are moments where he acts suspiciously (he does a brief, unsettling laugh during your second chat with him, after beating [[WarmupBoss Azazel]]),and the [[OurDemonsAreDifferent daemons]] lead you to believe that [[UnwittingPawn he's manipulating you]]. In [[EasterEgg a hidden scene,]] [[BigBad Lucifer]] will even imply that [[TwoAliasesOneCharacter he is the Hopeless Soul.]] But even when the Soul turns out to be the TrueFinalBoss, he's just trying to [[OneHundredPercentCompletion satisfy the player's completionist urges,]] and never really does anything incriminating or malevolent.]]

Compare TheSoCalledCoward, which is when a character is suspected of being a DirtyCoward, but turns out to be an exceptionally courageous character.

* In ''VisualNovel/ReAlistair'', Merui mentions that even nice guys can [[GIFT act like jerks online]] in regards to [[NiceGuy Shiro]] being one of the three boys who could potentially be Alistair. Additionally, playing Shiro's route has you see him acting uncharacteristically hostile towards Derek in one scene when Merui isn't around. [[SpoiledByTheFormat Of course]], since he's listed on this page, you know he's not actually Alistair and has a completely understandable reason to not be friendly towards Derek. [[spoiler:In fact, he's Merui's online friend [=FionaWings=] who rightly suspects Derek of being Alistair.]]
