* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice'' has [[spoiler: Pu'ray Zeh'lot]], who looks like a perfectly normal Khura'inese citizen despite being [[spoiler: a vigilante serial killer working for the SecretPolice to kill rebels, who had no qualms about attempting to kill a ''pregnant'' woman. In a twist, he's the case's AssholeVictim rather than murder, killed in self-defence by one of his targets]] but their face portrait looks so generic the player isn't likely to suspect much of them. They even [[spoiler: lived as a surrogate child to High Priest Inmee and his wife for ''years'', with them being none the wiser until the incident happened.]]

* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords'' invokes this in-universe with the [[OmnicidalManiac life-eating]] [[EldritchAbomination Dark-Side entity of intent]] Darth Nihilus, should the player-character choose to let his liberated servant Visas Marr remove his skull-like mask upon his death; if the player asks her what his face looked like, she will simply reply "A man. Nothing more."

* The majority of characters in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' are [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Ordinary High School Students]], meaning that oftentimes people who choose to play the game fit this trope in some way or another. This is particularly true in regards to v4, where there has been an increased focus on realism. Many, many characters in [[DevelopingDoomedCharacters pre-game]] come off as people who you could easily find at your school in real life, but once you get to in-game... well, it brings out the worst in people. [[BigBad Danya]] himself can fit as well, as aside from bearing scars from attempts on his life he's described as someone who wouldn't particularly stand out in a crowd; Bryan Calvert even says Danya looks like his father.

\n* [[spoiler: Mr. Jefferson]] in ''VideoGame/LifeisStrange'' turns out to be the mastermind behind the darker events of Arcadia Bay in Episode 5. Fittingly, the player is led to initially assume that the mentally unhinged Nathan Prescott is the one pulling the strings. After all, he pulls a ''gun'' on Chloe in Episode 1 alone. [[spoiler: And technically ''yes'', Nathan because of his aforementioned mental problems was easily manipulated into aiding Jefferson with his illicit photography sessions with Kate Marsh and Rachel Amber, but for the most part, it was all Jefferson's doing]].

* Many of Creator/StephenKing's stories feature antagonists who look like perfectly ordinary people, most notably:
** The novella ''Apt Pupil'' in ''Literature/DifferentSeasons'' describes Todd Bowden as an all-American kid with reasonable grades, a paper route, and overall nothing to indicate his obsession with concentration camps and Nazi war crimes.

* [[spoiler:Adachi]] from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''

to:

* [[spoiler:Adachi]] from In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''4}}'' it's established from the beginning that there's a serial killer in Inaba. In such a small town, it would be incredibly easy to fly under the radar by just not doing anything extraordinary. That makes it hurt more when you find out that it's [[spoiler:Tohru Adachi, the bumbling comic relief detective who works under your uncle. It's hard to believe that a man you've had in your house for dinner several times is actually a closet MisanthropeSupreme who was willing to end the world just for kicks]].
