* It's been implied at this point that Takuto Tsunashi of ''Anime/StarDriver'', up to this point a typical kind, cheerful, {{Badass}} IdiotHero with a bit of CloudCuckooLander mixed in, at the very least has some HiddenDepths that are... well, not nice, at the very least (and at the most, this is all a facade and he's completely SCREWED UP) if these implications are to be believed. Knowing Yoji Enokido, these are probably going to be fully explored by the time the series is over.

Added DiffLines:

* Isabella in ''Manga/ThePromisedNeverland'' is as sweet and loving a mother as one can have. At least she does her best to give that impression to the children in the PeopleFarm she's managing for her demonic patrons. Considering it's implied that her ''own'' life is at stake, she has some reasons to keep a perfect act, but she still seems to enjoy herself a bit too much in this job.

* ''Anime/DigimonAdventureTri'' takes it UpToEleven with ''every single Digimon partner of the Digidestined'' in the third movie ''Confession''. [[spoiler: After realizing that they're all slowly succumbing to an infection that will drive them mad and start hurting others, they are informed that the only way to fix is to wait for some higher being of the Digital World to trigger the 'Reboot' process to remove the infection, that has a side effect of removing all their memories. Not wanting to inform their partners of this terrible truth, they try their best to act cheerful in front of their partners while doing happy and nostalgic things with them with what little time they have left. Only Patamon, whom Takeru already knew is infected, and Agumon, who goes overboard with the act that he accidentally reveals to Taichi that something is wrong, are only able to share the grief with their partners.]]

* In ''Manga/NewGame'', Rin states that Kou used to be pretty serious when she first came into the company, and her current funny personality is a way to cope up with all the bullying she had experienced at work.

* Natsuki Subaru from "LightNovel/ReZero" starts to become one of these as the series goes on. [[spoiler: Possibly even started out as one from the beginning.]] As the series goes on it becomes clear that his happy-go-lucky attitude is covering up severe self-doubt and depression [[spoiler: from trying to save his friends only to see them die over and over again and regret with how he spent his old life on Earth.]]

** [[spoiler: King Bradley]] is this; he appears to be a kindly family man but is actually [[spoiler: a homunculus]].[[spoiler: He really fits the trope to a T because when he was human he spent his entire life from infancy on being trained to take on the role of "President Bradley." He was manufactured like a stepford wife.]]

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': Kogoro, who never stops smiling. He's far less dangerous than the usual example though.
** His sister, Lavie, is the only one who can read his emotions.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'': Shinoa shows shades of this, due to her friendless background and history of abuse from her family.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'': Both Yuu and Mika. In the novels its stated that Mika deals with the desolate situation involving his real family that abused him and his adoptive family of other orphans and Yuu being subjugated by vampires by smiling cheerfully. After his turning into a vampire he becomes more of a PerpetualFrowner and only seems to smile [[HoYay around Yuu]].
** Yuu's cheerful side and ability to never give up even when faced with impossible odds (even Ferid notes it in the novel) is something he either naturally had or developed in the orphanage and in the vampire city under the influence of the kids and Mika. So in a few recent chapters it is both a facade he uses to cheer up his friends and lessen their worries and a manifestation of his own determination and positivity (he is aware of how grave his situation is, but he is determined to fight to the end with everything hes got to change it).
** It's been implied in the Catastrophe light novels that Shinya's smile developed as a defense mechanism that allowed him to survive when those that got angry or shut down didn't.
