  • Fullmetal Alchemist: Selim Bradley pretends to be a Cute Shotaro Boy, when in fact he's not. At the end of the series, he becomes a straight example of the trope after he loses his memories.

Then we learn she's really Book Dumb, and then come to find out she is pretty bright, but doesn't care to put it to studies.
