This character is harsh and mean. They are, abrasive and cruel, but in truth they're just depressed and fearful, trying to intimidate people into [[IWorkAlone leaving them alone]]. Like a hedgehog, this character bristles with spikes in order [[TheyreCalledPersonalIssuesForAReason to protect themselves]]. Intimacy scares them, and perhaps [[NeverBeHurtAgain they've been hurt before.]]

* Kyoko Sakura in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. At first, she seems to be a mean, selfish girl who believes that {{Magical Girl}}s should use their powers for their own purposes.

* Babs Seed, from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', is a particularly nasty example of bully compared to the show's usual duo of {{Alpha Bitch}}es.

Compare with {{Tsundere}} and JerkWithAHeartOfGold, where characters have harsh and abrasive personality that conceals a sweet or loving side]]. The StepfordSnarker is somewhat similar, hiding their sadness and insecurities under snarkiness, but not necessarily such a {{Jerkass}} about it. In anime fandoms this character is referred to as a ''tsunshun''.

This character is harsh and mean. They are deliberately abrasive and cruel. It's all a [[BeneathTheMask facade]] though. In truth they're just depressed and fearful, trying to intimidate people into [[IWorkAlone leaving them alone]].

to:

* Shane from ''VideoGame/StardewValley'' suffers from chronic depression and a SoulSuckingRetailJob. His coping mechanisms are [[DrowningMySorrows alcohol]], [[TheAlcoholic more alcohol]], and lashing out at anyone who so much as speaks to him. The more persistent you are trying to befriend him, the more abrasive he gets trying to push you away... until he snaps completely and [[spoiler: tries to throw himself off a cliff]].

* Kyo Sohma, from ''Main/FruitsBasket''. Being [[spoiler:the black sheep (cat) of the Zodiac]] has put immense pressure on his shoulders, which he covers up with his attitude. He gets over much of his negativity as the series goes on, mostly due to Tohru.

* ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseman'' is a bitter, sarcastic, heavy-drinking old washout who treats even his best friends like crap, but in reality is experiencing very deep depression (resulting in substance abuse and anxiety attacks). In the first episode, his roommate Todd points out that [=BoJack=] must be a good person inside because he still hasn't kicked Todd out despite him living on his couch and not paying rent; as the series develops, it becomes apparent that just because [=BoJack=] is deeply depressed, it doesn't justify or excuse his behaviour.
