** ''Spirit of Justice'' introduces Nahyuta Sahdmadhi, a priestly prosecutor who calmly tells defense attorneys they're bound for Hell because of their careers. It's mostly an act.

* ''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.

* Rick Sanchez from ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' is this, being insulting, abusive and emotionally distant but willing to save Morty and Summer.

* UsefulNotes/MargaretThatcher. Pretty ruthless and icy but a sweetie with her husband and children. [[TheIronLady She was often forced to be even tougher than male leaders]] or be seen as "[[DoubleStandard just a weak female]]."
* UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill, despite his aloof and somewhat sardonic demeanour, was a loving family man.
* The journalist Melanie Phillips seems like a close relative of Servalan from ''Series/BlakesSeven'' whenever you see her give a speech, but people who interview her say that she's quite warm and funny in person.
* Creator/ChristopherHitchens was about as acerbic as you can get but was a loving father and close friends with his ex-wife.
* Creator/AynRand was generally very stern in public but had a wicked sense of humour and was good with kids.
* Creator/GordonRamsay: Memetic jerkass on TV and in the kitchen; loving father, heavyweight charity supporter, and apparently an all-around nice guy otherwise. In fact, he always acts that violent and irritable when doing something work-related; he really takes cooking seriously. Although he is ''way'' kinder with [[http://www.tickld.com/pic/t/461752 child contestants]] than with adult ones.
* People with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avoidant_personality_disorder Avoidant Personality Disorder]] tend to be this. Their excessive fear of rejection makes them icy at first. But if you can win their trust, a whole different side opens up.
* Many of the larger guard dog breeds act like this - aloof and guarded with strangers, loyal and affectionate with their own family.

* [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Bart Simpson]] definitely qualifies. He's a {{jerkass}} to his dad, sister, and the entire town of Springfield on a regular basis, but he does care for his family (especially his mom) and will stop his pranks if it displeases Marge.
** Gina could be a more classic example. She beats up Bart, but also cries, and even confesses to everything so that Bart will go free. Yet when we see her later, she wants nothing to do with Bart. At least she's trying.

* [[AntiHero Shadow]] from ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' is cold and distant from others, even after putting behind the past in his [[VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog own spin-off title]], but despite this, he has shown to care for his teammates, Rouge and Omega, and even to [[TheRival Sonic]] and his friends.

* WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter is a somewhat downplayed example as he is often harsh towards bad episodes of cartoons or bad animated movies. In actuality, he is a very sweet and slightly awkward guy.

* Roswell from ''YggdraUnion'' leans heavily towards the cold side of the equation, but every now and again he shows moments of incredibly heartfelt gentleness. Interestingly, many of these moments seem provoked by [[ShipTease Yggdra, our lovely protagonist]].

** Ava Crescentia from was raised by a strict military father who taught her to value professionalism and hard work above all else. Because of this upbringing and her role as the Sunrider’s [[NumberTwo first officer]], she is distant, aloof, and at times harsh with the ship’s crew. The only exception to this is her captain and childhood friend Kayto Shields: while Ava normally warms up only slightly in his presence, Kayto causes her professional stoicism to crack on several occasions, most notably [[spoiler:in the aftermath of [[WhamEpisode the Liberation Day massacre]], [[AnguishedDeclarationOfLove where she tearfully admits that she still has feelings for him]] [[InappropriatelyCloseComrades despite previously having pushed him away out of fear of becoming emotionally compromised]]]].
