** [[spoiler:Leo]] has become this way as well after [[spoiler:Elliot's death]]. He's equal parts B and C, having essentially StoppedCaring, and Oz even comments, "You don't want to destroy anything. You're just trying to destroy yourself."

*All Might from ''Manga/{{My Hero Academia}}'' when in hero-mode nearly always has a smile because he is the "Symbol of Peace". But the smile is just a "brave face".

* From ''Anime/PrincessPrincipal'' we have [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Princess]]. She's always seen with a weak smile on her face. When Chise says that she can tell she hates practicing the fine arts, Princess feels that she's not working hard enough to hide her hatred of her lifestyle. In truth, [[spoiler:she's not a princess at all, but a random commoner who resembles the princess, befriended her, and pulled a PrinceAndPauper switch with her on the day revolution happened to occur. If she doesn't reach the level of proficiency in the fine arts expected of a princess, she fears the kingdom will learn of her common birth and kill her on the spot.]]

** Reiner Braun is a surrogate [[TeamDad big brother]] to the others, always trying to offer reassurances or awkward jokes even in the worst situations. [[spoiler:He's actually being driven [[OutDamnedSpot slowly]] [[VillainousBSOD insane]] with [[MurderMakesYouCrazy guilt]] over his [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone crimes]] as TheMole]].

* ''LightNovel/SoICantPlayH'': Initially, it seems Ilia has it all: she's a popular {{teen idol}} and [[HelloNurse a babe]], who doubles as a spokesperson for the Merlot Life Insurance company. That is, until Ilia's manager reveals that people used to make fun of her, because [[spoiler: Ilia's semi-flatchested. Plus, her lisp and her natural accent slurred her speech so badly, hardly anyone could understand her]]. It's left her with an extremely poor self-image. So as long as the spell holds, Ilia brims with confidence, but if it anyone sees, ''or hears'' what she's really like, [[DontLookAtMe she runs away in tears.]]

* [[DragonWithAnAgenda Glemmy Toto]] of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' initially appears to be a LaughablyEvil NobleDemon with a [[BunnyEarsLawyer quirky sense of humour]] and some other odd, but [[TheCharmer charming]] behaviours. He's actually a deeply screwed-up [[TeensAreMonsters kid]] who has [[TheStarscream no loyalty to his boss]], [[BigBad Haman Khan]], is out to [[ManipulativeBastard manipulate]] his way into power and doesn't particularly care who gets hurt in the process. His [[VillainousCrush crush]] on [[ActionGirl Roux]] goes from cute to twisted very fast, he's implied to have some [[{{Lolicon}} warped sexual preferences]], and several of his lines imply that behind the cheerful facade he is ''screaming'' on the inside. Being a [[YouClonedHitler clone of]] [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Gihren Zabi]] will do that to a guy.

* Ryo from ''Manga/CityHunter'' is an highly functional type, as nobody, not even Kaori or the reader, suspects anything. The reader and Kaori only realize it when a one-shot character revealed herself to be The Empath and stated it in tears (the reader could have realized earlier, as Ryo let his mask slip for a single second in a previous story arc), and even then they'll have to wait for Rosemary Moon to know why.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' himself. He smiles near-constantly, which, during his childhood, was to mask the sadness of his lonely life. Those who are closest to him are able to recognize when his smile isn't genuine (which is, surprising enough considering [[{{Keet}} his personality]], much of the time). He will tend to mask his pain with a smile, such as when he promises Sakura to bring back Sasuke for her before and after the retrieval mission. Before the Chunin exams finals, he privately admitted to [[TheConfidant Hinata]] that the smile is a mask, and that he viewed himself as a loser and tried to act cool and brash to cope with this. Later, Pain put him on the ropes by breaking him down with words, getting him to second guess his own actions.
