* ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet''.''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'' is a zig-zagged case. Decades prior to the story, Benjamin Barker was a friendly, well-liked town barber, easily fitting the trope. He returns from exile a brooding, sullen man, though depending on the version he remains friendly and talented enough to ensure a stream of satisfied customers and victims. The musical version of the Demon Barber plays up his OddFriendship with his partner in crime and landlord Mrs. Lovett, [[AffablyEvil gleefully plotting]] their crime spree.
** ''Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'' (2007) largely does away with the trope, in favor of playing up [[Creator/JohnnyDepp this Sweeney]] as a melancholy, withdrawn force of vengence to match [[Creator/TimBurton the tone of the film.]] Here, the Demon Barber remains introverted and meticulous, rarely talking with other characters, while they have one-sided conversations near him, instead preferring to talk to his razors. He only really breaks this reverie before brutally murdering somebody plot-relevant.
