* The Empire of Niflheim seems to be on in VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV in that it's well supported by the people of the countries they conquered. From the look of things, they've managed to convince Prince Ravus that Insomnia is the one that killed the royalty of Tenebrae and managed to convince those under Lucis rule that they're there to liberate them and bring equality to the people.

** Lucky Quinn also fits this trope. He holds charity events alongside Chicago's mayor under public eye, but [[spoiler: is actually a murderer and a mob boss.]]

** Although Lex is GenreSavvy enough to realize that he's living in a world where "it wasn't me, it was a version of my {{Mind Control}}led [[CloningBlues clone]] from an AlternateUniverse who had me tied up" is a credible legal defense, and has thus kept himself out of jail, the public has recently stopped buying his collective bullshit. Lex has rapidly plummeted into ZeroPercentApprovalRating, lost his corporation, and is well on the way to becoming a pure MadScientist again.

** [[PosthumousCharacter Jebediah Springfield]], the town's founder, is believed by the citizens to be a heroic pioneer who wrestled bears. In truth, as revaled by his confession found in "Lisa the Iconoclast", he was a FakeUltimateHero. He was actually Hans Sprungfeld a notorious pirate with a silver tongue ([[NotHyperbole literally]], he lost his tongue to a Turk in a groghouse fight and had it replaced with a prosthetic silver tongue) who tried to assassinate UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington.

* [[{{Yaiba}} Onimaru]] is a demon lord who conquered the whole of Japan by brainwashing the ministers and destroying those who rebelled against him with a huge WaveMotionGun from Mount Fuji. Yet the Japanese people seen around aren't too troubled by that.

* [[{{Satan}} Lord Maledict]] is revered as a benevolent capitol-G God by many races of the Milky Way Galaxy in ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos''. It's often justified - for example, Episode 69 reveals Maledict gave the Marmolims their home world for faithfully serving him. Even Cosmo and her race once worshiped him [[spoiler: until he betrayed them and masterminded their extermination]]. On the other side, Allysion is explicitly described as the God of Abraham in TheBible, who is worshiped by Christians and Jews and Muslims; too bad she happens to be a merciless AxCrazy control freak who enjoys committing genocide on those who refuse to worship her.

* ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' gives us Mayo Mitama, a villain with "bad bad" publicity. In that she looks evil and does evil things, but, since people are afraid of judging by appearances, they always assume she didn't do them. Her name in Japanese, Mitama Mayo, translates to "Exactly what she looks like".

* The baby {{face}} vs baby face, Savio Vega vs Dennis Rivera "feud" in The World Wrestling League, where Rivera was convinced Vega was an example of this trope. To be fair, Dennis was [[CassandraTruth totally right until]], the fans cheering for Vega's efforts to screw Heavyweight Champion Glamour Boy Shane by pitting him against such wrestlers as El Mesias and [[Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio El Patron Alberto]]. But then El Patron joined the newly formed Gentlemen's Club [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness and Vega was fired,]] so Savio [[HeelFaceTurn was no longer an example when he returned.]]

* Veda Scott is an [[AmoralAttorney evil lawyer]] and something of a DirtyCoward\CowardlyLion to boot, but still gets to join Kevin Kelly during the recaps of Wrestling/RingOfHonor's tours and force Amber Gertner away from Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}}'s commentary table at will with no repercussions.
