* ComicBook/{{X 23}} from the ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' and ''X-Force'' acts cold around other people. Alone, however, she's an emotional wreck who can't reconcile the trauma of her {{Tykebomb}} training with her growing desire to be free and express herself. (She was trained all her life to repress feelings and never bond with anyone, so, gradually... she forgot how.) Unfortunately, this is often a SelfFulfillingProphecy - she doesn't know how to be social with her peers, so they take her awkward silences to mean that she has no emotions or humanity at all, so they isolate her from the group and call her a "monster", so she never learns how to relate to other people, so she never learns how to let go of her depression, [[ViciousCycle so she doesn't know how to be social with her peers...]]. (Admittedly, though, it doesn't help that she sees nothing wrong with killing people--something which horrifies her fellow teenagers. Even in her good moments, X-23 looks and speaks in [[DarkIsNotEvil a very creepy way]].)

* Miho from ''ComicBook/SinCity'' seems almost completely unemotional, but there have been moments in which she showed genuine affection for a select few people. The prime example is in ''Family Values'', where she lays on Dwight's lap and takes a nap.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/Daredevil2015'':
**Matt Murdock has a bit of this going on. He can be very chivalrous with Karen and Foggy, while also being a bit more abrasive in his interactions with other people.
**Karen Page has a very bubbling personality that is very prevalent whenever she's around Matt and Foggy. However, this is all a mask to a much darker side of herself, as she's also got a very shady past and she personally killed James Wesley.

* Barnaby Brooks Jr. from ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'' is a odd version of this. When in front of the camera he seems like a charming young man, but he is cold, untrusting and aloof to other Heros. Over time however we see these are both masks to hide his more emotional real self. His partner is the only one to really see his true sweet side.

* WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter is a somewhat downplayed example as he is often harsh towards bad episodes of cartoons or bad animated movies (Atrocities). He does have a sweeter side, which is often shown in more positive reviews (Admirable) and a few journal entries like [[http://mrenter.deviantart.com/journal/Do-you-know-what-s-fun-571179499 this one]].

* ''Anime/{{Hyouka}}'':
** Houtarou Oreki. He may initially appear stoic and emotionless but in fact has a caring inner side.
** [[spoiler:Fuyumi Irisu. In the final episode, Houtarou gets suspicious when she asks his opinion on why the procession took a different path than it was supposed to, but Irisu replies that she was honestly curious. She may be a [[ManipulativeBitch manipulative]], apathetic girl most of the time, but Irisu can actually be somewhat friendly when she doesn't have a goal in mind.]]

** Sola di Ryuvia is a [[BadassPrincess warrior princess]] and LivingRelic who lived two thousand years before the present day. When she wakes up from stasis, [[FishOutOfTemporalWater she finds herself in an era]] where her peopleís galaxy-spanning empire has [[VestigialEmpire been reduced to a single backwater planet]] and everything she did to defend it has been forgotten. This situation leaves her withdrawn, despondent, and possibly suicidal, and she only joins the Sunriderís crew to give herself a sense of purpose. Itís not until Kayto begins treating her like a human being, rather than a weapon, that she begins warming up to him and finds a reason to live.

* ''StarWarsExpandedUniverse'': Mara Jade falls under this trope pre-''HandOfThrawn'' duology; once she's married to Luke, however, she mostly reverts to a mixed-type {{Tsundere}} (she can get [[MamaBear rather testy]] under [[BerserkButton certain circumstances]]). It's mentioned a few times that her habitual [[DeadpanSnarker sarcasm]] is a tactic - angry people say things they might normally keep quiet, and angry people just in general don't think as well, so they don't fight as smart.
