* [[HandsomeDevil Ian Kabra]] from ''The39Clues'' fits this trope perfectly. He's dark, described in the books as being very good-looking, and is extremely full of himself. He starts off pretty evil, but [[HeelFaceTurn turns out to have hidden morals]].

* Cort Myshtigo in ''Literature/ThisImmortal'' comes off as a cold and arrogant EntitledBastard who flaunts his family's influence, as well as his own as a wealthy and influential galacto-journalist, but he shows surprising insight into the cultural differences between Vegans and humans as well as into the personalities of those around him. [[spoiler:He also shows surprising depth by being able to play that role ''and'' see through Conrad's motivations while dying of an incurable desease. His humor in his last letter to Conrad helps to endear him to Conrad even more.]]

** Aline Penhallow. Her behavior towards Simon is neither actively malicious nor self-consciously snobbish. But the way that she talks to, and about (in his presence), him bears a distinct resemblance to a member of an old-fashioned aristocracy meeting her very first peasant.

** The Clave, they seem to be having some feudal fantasy wherein they perceive themselves to be a kind of warrior-nobility charged with protecting the mundane peasantry. Modernity has, if anything, had an inverse effect on social change here. While as recently as the 19th Century the Clave would employ the Mortal Cup to grant [[SuperEmpowering Ascension]] to select mundanes, by the time [[spoiler: Jocelyn]] made off with the Cup it was no longer being used anyway. Likewise, while past generations of Shadowhunters could sometimes get away with marrying mundanes (their children would always be Nephilim regardless), the Clave started aggressively cracking down on these kinds of relationships. As a result their population was dangerously shrinking by the turn of the Millennium.

** Roboute Guilliman, Primarch of the Ultramarines, fits this trope to a T. Raised a noble from birth, he often came off as cold and overly analytical to his brothers. Thanks to his insistence he could improve upon their own tactics if he put his mind to it, many of them considered him an InsufferableGenius. Despite this, he really did care and wasn't as arrogant as he appeared, though only a few people got to see that side of him.

* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'': {{Benedict Cumberbatch}}'s portrayal of Sherlock Holmes has a bit of this: he's a tall, aloof, stylishly dressed InsufferableGenius who can be pretty offputting in how he relates to others, but there are people he [[MoralityPet genuinely cares for]].

* Emma Frost of the X-Men. As a member of the Hellfire Club, she was literally one of the most influential people in the world, and is known to be incredibly wealthy. She herself says she has the best body money can buy, and is a very powerful telepath, and since she got together with Cyclops, she's basically second-in-command of the X-Men, third if Wolverine happens to be around. She's also a complete bitch who can't go a day without acting like one. But no matter her flaws, she genuinely cares for all her students, and genuinely loved Cyclops.

Added DiffLines:

* Adrian Ivashkov from ''Literature/VampireAcademy'', has shades of this. He is arrogant, flaunts his wealth and royal connections. He speaks in a flippant tone and puts on an air of smug superiority. However, he barely hides a more friendly and emotional side.

* Koon from ''TowerOfGod'' is as cocky as they get. Hatsu loves to call him out for this. Problem is, Koon has something to back up his attitude.

* Dr. Nero, headmaster and founder of the eponymous school in the ''HIVESeries,'' fits this to a T. Always dressed in expensive suits and conducting himself as the successful man that he is and wants his students to emulate, it is only after six books that we find out he is a [[spoiler: HurtingHero, who lost Elena, "the only woman he ever loved" to Anastasia Furan, her own sister.]] This TragicVillain status is foreshadowed only by his numerous references to having watched many other G.L.O.V.E. members die through a variety of circumstances he obsessively tries to avoid. He spends an entire chapter in book two [[DrowningMySorrows drowning his sorrows,]] but never lets his weakness be seen to his students.
