* [[SinisterShiv Shanks]] from ''Anime/OnePiece''. Subverted in that he's really a nice guy, and not in an AffablyEvil way. Then double-subverted when it's revealed he's one of the Four Emperors, one of such power that not even the Marines, Warlords, nor other Emperors want to antagonize directly. When the Marineford War was about to devolve into a MeleeATrois, his appearance and threat to join in the brawl stopped the war right there and then.
