** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* When Shepherd starts detailing Makarov in ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' you expect based on the other villains that he would be some kind of monster or Expy of Stalin. Shepherd then shows you a photo, looking all the world like one for a passport, and Makarov looks much more like a off duty soldier or businessman than terrorist mastermind.

Added DiffLines:

* In the film adaptation of ''Literature/{{Misery}}'', Annie Wilkes was changed from intimidating and unkempt to somebody you could pass on the street and not look twice at. The effect is deeply unsettling.
