Index with a Heart of Gold

Go To

This is about characters who are difficult to approach socially on the outside, but nice on the inside.

Sometimes this is because there is some goodness in everyone. At other times, they were only hiding that they were Good All Along.

Compare A Polite Index. Contrast Quirky Good, Hidden Evil. See also Subverted Innocence, which is basically the inverse example of this index in containing tropes about people who look sweet on the outside, but are truly malicious on the inside.
