* ''Series/BeingHumanUK'': Herrick, the BigBad of Season One and the vampire "king" of Bristol. In the unaired pilot, he was a tall, imposed ScaryBlackMan who looked like he had walked out of ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'', complete with leather duster and nightclub. In the series proper he's a non-threatening, average height, dumpy, middle-aged white guy who wears an off-the-rack suit or his [[DirtyCop police uniform]].

** In contrast with TheEmperor's inhuman appearance in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', the prequels reveal that he once looked like a friendly old man. Then ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' establishes [[FacialHorror how he came to look like he did]]: a blast of his own [[ShockAndAwe Force Lightning]] that quite literally [[HoistByHisOwnPetard blew up in his face]].

Works in the rebooted canon have Imperial propaganda (and speeches where he doesn't show up in public) using this face instead of his real one [[ObviouslyEvil for obvious reasons]].

* From ''Film/{{Predators}}'': [[spoiler:Edwin looks and like a completely normal guy, especially when surrounded by badasses and killers, but he turns out to be a psychopathic serial killer who enjoys drugging his victims]].

* The Neighbor in ''VideoGame/HelloNeighbor'' appears to be a painfully average across-the-street neighbor, but the player character isn't buying it. Considering he may be responsible for the kidnapping of several children and the lengths he will go to in order to keep the protagonist out of his house...

** The first game had this too, when you need to get into the World 3 server via the Undernet.
*** To explain, you need four passwords to get in, and you know that there are former World 3 agents who are living peacefully in Den City. [[labelnote:Now...]][[spoiler: ...you've probably already thought of Higsby and gotten his note, but what about the other three? Well, you might remember two of them. One is an old man who wants you to ask him where you are, so he can deny that he's senile, and the other is Ms. Mari's twin sister, Ms. Yuri of Dentown Summer School! (Thought she might become important? You were right!) The final one is just a random scientist in the [=SciLab=] half of the Government Complex, and this editor is not sure if he shows any signs of being former World 3.]][[/labelnote]]

* Creator/RobinWilliams has also played a couple of very troubling antagonists in ''Film/OneHourPhoto'' and ''Film/{{Insomnia}}'' as well. While this borders on PlayingAgainstType here, his character in ''OneHourPhoto'' was scary because he could have been ''any random photomat clerk'', and he nearly faded into the background anyway.

* In ''MitadakeHigh'', every sprite looking the same except for their hair and gender can easily provide you with this trope, as one out of the players has to be the killer. Subverted (at least for the characters) if the killer is the "Creepy Red-Haired Guy".

* In ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', Kylo Ren responds to Rey calling him a "creature in a mask" by removing his helmet. Unlike Vader, he's entirely normal-looking without it, and Rey is visibly thrown that her captor could blend into a crowd so easily.
