But [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife you've been]] on TV Tropes. [[CloudCuckooLander You]] [[InsaneTrollLogic know]] what it means. She's a StepfordSmiler, and certainly not a type A.

* ''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.

* An {{Inverse}} example is seen in ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'', when the heroes from the Main Universe meet the Injustice Verse Lex Luthor, especially Cyborg. [[spoiler: Luthor ends up pulling a HeroicSacrifice trying to take out Superman, and gave his fortune to Batman, with whom he had started the Insurgency with to put an end to Superman's Regime. Cyborg looks on in sadness at his grave in the end.]]
** Although from Injustice Verse Superman's point of view, [[spoiler: Luthor's betrayal could be seen as a BitchInSheepsClothing.]]
* From ''Videogame/MassEffect1'', [[PlayableCharacter Shepard]] meets [[ShrinkingViolet Liara T'Soni]], an intelligent scientist and [[TheDragon Matriarch Benezia's]] daughter. After recruiting her, ''everyone'' expects her to be a spy working for her mother to sabotage Shepard's attempts to stop her EvilPlan. She acts like a shy, nerdy loner who is trying to make friends, but...she ''really is'' an awkward girl who wants to befriend everybody. She actually provides help against her mother and proves to be GoodAllAlong. [[UndyingLoyalty Overall, she becomes one of Shepard's best and most consistently loyal friends in the series.]]
* ''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.]]

* [[ImpliedTrope Hinted Trope]] at least in the final case of ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth''. The character [[spoiler:Colias Paeleno]] cooperates in nearly every way that they can with your investigation of crime scenes, a behavior which the franchise generaly uses for guilty parts. Additionally, they have animations which lend themselves really well to a VillainousBreakdown. In the end, it turns out that it was a RedHerring, the developers were using expectations from the player, and the person really is just that helpful, which may be a first for the franchise.
* ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'' introduces Klavier Gavin as the new prosecutor. Given that every single previous prosector in this series has started out as arrogant {{Amoral Attorney}}s at best and turned out to be murderous at worst, you'll naturally expect him to be hiding something rotten underneath his charming and friendly exterior ''especially'' considering that you've just seen his older brother be exposed as a murdering BitchInSheepsClothing. This appears to be confirmed when you learn that he [[spoiler:had a hand in stripping Phoenix of his badge]]. However, it turns out that [[spoiler:Klavier really is a genuinely kind and decent person who initially didn't know of his brother's true nature, suffered from massive guilt about his role in Phoenix's disbarral, and is willing to turn against his own bandmates and brother to see justice done]].

* ** Iris from ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations'' surely ''seems'' nice, polite and innocent. She also has a secret connected with Phoenix's past and generally looks like ''textbook'' example of BitchInSheepsClothing. Nope! NiceGirl all along. [[spoiler: in a double whammy she's also this in Phoenix backstory. The reason Phoenix inssted that Dahlia Hawthorne ''cannot'' be possibly evil was because the girl he was dating at the time was Iris, not Dahlia. And while Dahlia hated his guts and tried to kill him, Iris really loved him just like he insisted. ]]

* Kasumi Tendo from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' is a sweet, motherly YamatoNadeshiko who has the patient of a saint. One day, Ranma somehow made her angry, and the group finds several household items damaged. The others quickly assumed that Kasumi is a StepfordSmiler who had been suppressing her grudge, and that her dormant anger would now be unleashed, and they spend the rest of the chapter fearing her wrath. When she finally confronted Ranma, she punished him with... a flick on the forehead (and even then she worries that she was being too harsh).

* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/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, a.k.a. 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.
