** Played straight in Season 5 with [[ArcVillain Glory]], a PhysicalGod with SuperStrength, SuperSpeed, and NighInvulnerability... who looks like an average pretty girl you'd see on the street. In fact, the first time the Scoobies meet her, she's casually [[VillainsOutShopping buying items for a spell at the Magic Box]]. Since only Buffy (who wasn't there) knew what she looked like, the gang thinks nothing of her until they realize she bought items for a dangerous SummoningRitual and would require tremendous power to be able to perform that particular spell; cue OhCrap.

* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', Ghouls look exactly like humans and are nearly indistinguishable from them. Some humans even wonder whether they really exist, and express surprise when discovering that Ghouls look human. This is driven home when Ken Kaneki manages to score a date with a beautiful girl, and their wonderful evening ends with her trying to eat him. [[TheHunter CCG]] Investigators are trained to watch for very subtle signs someone might be a Ghoul, but even then the law restricts them from acting until they actually see a Ghoul's GameFace.

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' villain Yoshikage Kira actively cultivates this image, making himself as nondescript as possible to disguise his SerialKiller activities.

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' villain Yoshikage Kira actively cultivates this image, making himself as nondescript as possible to disguise his SerialKiller activities. This was used with chilling effect when heroes chased Kira, only to run off into a busy street and realize, that any office worker in the crowd could be him and they won't be able to find him.
** Gray Fly, minor antagonist from part 3 looks like a plain old man and deliberately acts like he has no idea what is happening, while his stand rips people apart.

* In ''AroundTheWorldInEightyDays'', the Bank of England has been robbed by a man who [[CriminalDoppelganger unfortunately resembles]] protagonist Phileas Fogg. The British consul in Suez remarks that the description given is that of an honest man, to which the detective Fix declares that great robbers always look like honest men; the ones who look like rascals are too easily caught.

This is when a villain doesn't look like a villain, and is even more terrifying because of it. This does not apply to particularly handsome or charming villains - that goes under EvilIsSexy. Characters following this trope look completely ordinary. You could pass them on the street and [[BeneathNotice never notice them]], let alone suspect they murdered someone just the other day.

* ''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.]]

* Some of the [=UnSubs=] in ''Series/CriminalMinds'' are sleazy looking, creepy, brutish or in some way unusual, but the vast majority look like regular people. In one episode, a woman is being followed by an obsessive stalker who isn't identified until the third act, at which point you realised he was standing in the background of half her scenes. Another noteable one is the unassuming killer from the episode "Lucky", in reality a devil-worshipping cannibal.

Not to mention the episode "Normal", which is entirely based around the fact that the killer looks completely unassuming.
