** 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]]

* In the TamoraPierce Literature/CircleOfMagic novel ''Shatterglass,'' the serial killer turns out to be [[spoiler:one of the Hindu Untouchable/Dalit {{Expy}} characters who have been constantly on the outskirts of the protagonists' radar, cleaning, being abused, and biding their time]].

* The BigBad of ''Anime/PsychoPass'', Shogo Makishima, certainly looks like an ordinary individual, but what makes him truly qualify for this trope is [[spoiler:that the [[BigBrotherIsWatching Sibyl System]] views him as an ordinary individual. Being [[TheSociopath criminally asymptomatic]], Makishima's Psycho-Pass decreases as he commits crimes, where most other people would have their Psycho-Pass dramatically increase if they even ''think'' about possibly committing a criminal act. Makishima can commit all of the horrific crimes he wants and still be viewed by the Sibyl System as a perfectly healthy and stable individual.]]

** A TV-remake of ''Film/TheNightOfTheHunter'' had Harry played by [=Gerald McRaney=], who is possibly best known for appearing in the ''TouchedByAnAngel'' spinoff ''Promised Land''. He played a dad. A dad possibly a lot like yours. Put some role association together, and you have prime ParanoiaFuel.

* In ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', BigBad Zemo is completely unremarkable-looking (at least [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys in context]]). This is a drastic change from his comic book counterpart, a heavily-scarred, [[VillainousFashionSense garish-looking]] former Nazi.

* The infected humans in ''Literature/EdenGreen'' are eventually taken over by their needle-symbiotes, but otherwise appear completely human unless freshly-injured and still healing.

Added DiffLines:

* The Parasytes in Manga/{{Parasyte}} crawl into their host's brain, take over their body and eat unsuspecting humans. What makes the Parasyte's particularly ParanoiaFuel inducing is that; say a normal person somehow managed to escape a Parasyte and memorize their face, said Parasyte can then completely change their face and catch that same person off guard.

* In Jhin, the Virtuoso's backstory in ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', no one suspected the illusive murderer known as the "Golden Demon" would turn out to be an unassuming stagehand named Khada Jhin.

* In ''DragonballZ'', Krillin is surprised to find that Androids 17 and 18 (immensely powerful cyborgs that caused a BadFuture in an alternate timeline) look just look like regular people you'd see walking down the street. This is justified as they were once human, although even then they both happened to be juvenile delinquents.
