Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })Sometimes it really is the guy you least suspect. A Devil in Plain Sight is someone who is so obviously up to no good that the one character who seems aware of it is shocked no one else seems to notice. Everyone else, especially those with a tendency to be Horrible Judges of Character, may just consider them a little quirky and wonder what the observant character's problem is.
Sometimes this can be a villain hiding as a lesser immoral person. For example, no one would be the least bit surprised to find out that any given politician is a slimy scheming Jerkass, and thus they manage to hide their greater villainy as the simple pettiness of your every day scumbag.
Less extreme than the Villain with Good Publicity and Bitch in Sheep's Clothing, who is thought of highly by most people; the Devil In Plain Sight is mostly met with inattentive indifference. Might also be a case of Notice This (for the audience only).
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })Too Dumb to Fool can be their most dangerous enemies.
Compare with It Was Here, I Swear!, Not-So-Imaginary Friend, Mama Didn't Raise No Criminal, Mistaken for an Imposter. Contrast They Look Just Like Everyone Else!, Face of a Thug, and Most Definitely Not a Villain. For when the Devil In Plain Sight is actually the big D-man himself, see Louis Cypher. Often crosses over with Obviously Evil. If it's treated unsuccessfully as a surprise twist, that's Obvious Judas.
See Hidden in Plain Sight for when a MacGuffin does this.

Dragon Age
Dragon Age: Origins: Teyrn Loghain was painfully obvious, though everyone trusts him because he placed the blame on the Grey Wardens and was also a national hero for freeing the kingdom from decades of foreign occupation. The former can also be said of Arl Howe.
Arl Howe was voiced by Tim Curry. Other than being voiced by Curry, though, you probably wouldn't be expecting him to be a bad guy. At first.
In Dragon Age II, Mother Petrice. Tell me you didn't look at that cold, piercing gaze and at least predict she'd be a Smug Snake.
Also Bartrand. Listening to him, you wonder why anyone works for him, why Varric hasn't abandoned him, and why Hawke and the rest of the group don't just shoot him on sight. It would have saved them a lot of trouble.

Xellos of Slayers. Even though the whole party knows he's a demon, no one seems to mind him much - and that's despite his gruesome Kick the Dog record.
Slightly averted as, once they know he's evil, they only keep him around because he's so strong and regularly helps them out, when it overlaps with his goals/ is bored.
Also the fact he's so strong there isn't much they can do about him, short of risking blowing up the universe. That it's Xellos' eventual goal and Lina can do it may be part of the reason he likes hanging with her.
Lampshaded: That Xellos is both incredibly strong and evil is terribly obvious to the viewer, but Lina and co. don't figure out he's a Mazoku until quite a ways into Next, when it's practically shoved in their faces. The only one who figured it out before hand? Gourry, who didn't say anything because he thought it was so obvious.
No-one ever trusted him to begin with, and indeed Xellos never seemed to actually try to be trustworthy either, introducing himself as "Xellos, the mysterious priest." As the characters note, "Who introduces THEMSELVES as 'the mysterious priest'?" It's just that being a rather more literal devil in plain sight never occurred to anyone but Gourry.

Outcast of Redwall: Reversed with Veil Sixclaw. Everyone except his foster-mother Bryony realises that he's a delinquent and guess that it was him when an Abbeydweller is nearly killed. Ironically, it's heavily implied that if they'd treated him as if he was normal, he'd have grown up okay. But then they are mice trying to raise a ferret.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has an interesting variation in the form of the game's Metal Gear, ST-84 Sahelanthropus. It is a walking bipedal weapon, so anyone who saw it would know it was dangerous. However, it only has conventional weapons, and so wouldn't be subject to any nuclear treaties. But, thanks to the metallic arachea making up it's body, it can become a nuclear bomb. note Depleted uranium cannot be used as such, but the metallic arachea metabolize uranium and give off uranium-235, nuclear material, as a byproduct.

The cats Si and Am in Lady and the Tramp.
Jafar from Aladdin is a lean, shifty, diabolical sorcerer dressed predominantly in red and black colors with a penchant for hypnotizing Agrabah's sultan, yet nobody seems to regard him as anything more than a disfavored servant at worst. He's so obviously diabolical the movie actually pokes fun at it numerous times with the Sultan's... less-than-stellar judge of character:

Dexter works in the homicide department of the Miami police department by day, and kills by night. Despite this, he stays well under everyone else's "something's not right with him" radar, except for Doakes. Dexter comments at one point about being in a room full of police officers and Doakes being the only one who has any sort of sense of something wrong about him.
Done again in Season 3 with Miguel Prada, the local DA, who only Dexter suspects of sinister urges. It turns out that Dexter underestimates the degree of his sociopathy and has to kill him.

Jessica Lovejoy from The Simpsons episode "Bart's Girlfriend". Her parents (the local minister and his wife) know that she's a troublemaker, but consistently look the other way because they do not want to bring disgrace upon the Lovejoy family. This allows Jessica to be both this trope and a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing - and to frame innocent boyfriends (in this case, Bart) for her many misdeeds.

F.E.A.R. 3: The experiments (and abusive parenting) turn Point Man into a killer with a conscience and Fettel into a complete homicidal psychopath. Only one female scientist realizes that they've created a monster out of Fettel and a hero out of Point Man, while every other brainiac on the project outright worships Fettel for being "godlike" and "the next paragon of the human race" and call Point Man a failure for never reaching the bar, in spite of constant self-improvement.

G.I. Joe: Renegades: The newest incarnation of Cobra has the ruthless terrorist organization posing as a benevolent corporation providing essentials such as defense technology, pharmaceuticals, retail outlets, and apple pie. Their corporate logo not only bares a casual resemblance to the classic "hooded cobra" symbol of the original, it also closely resembles the Greek letter "Omega". Add to that, the CEO "Adam Decobray" has never been seen in public, and even putting on his best nice-guy voice in video conferences, he still sounds like the creepiest, most sinister man that ever lived (as opposed the to horror it really is) thanks to Charlie Adler's fiendishly subtle acting.

Shin Megami Tensei gave us Louis Cypher. We all know about that one, though.
Ironically though, even if you do realize that, he's actually a pretty nice guy personality wise, and in some games he has a really strong claim to being considered a good guy anyway, especially compared to just how Eviler Than Thou his competition can be.
Also ironically, attentive fans will spot him the moment they see his face. (See that mysterious blonde man/old man/little boy/scholar/young woman?) On a more meta-note, the designated Chaos Heroes will usually have surly attitudes and hate on The Man while Law Heroes are often polite and kind (at first). Note that exceptions do occur...
And in some situations, a demon will look like an ordinary, regular human, but immediately start spewing bullshit that points at their façade within five sentences. Examples include a hot seductress who basically glomps onto the player for no good reason, kidnaps the heroine in her third appearance, and is revealed to be Lilith herself, a high-school student who seems like an average ditz, but waltzes in the middle of a gang turf with no escorts and starts deducing who you are mere minutes after you arrive in Tokyo, and is revealed to be Lucifer. Basically, when the demons start using less obvious disguises, they make their sentences look like bullshit instead.

An odd example: Mephisto Pheles of Blue Exorcist seems to be playing with this. It's difficult to tell at this point, but his first entrance drew immediate suspicion. He dressed extravagantly, wore all white, had dramatic mannerisms, and his looks made it obvious that he was a demon of some sort. Heck, even his name is an obvious pun on that of a famous demon. But then this was subverted as it turned out that a lot of people have demon blood in the series, and some of them are exorcists. Then it turns out that he isanother one of Satan's sons - the second eldest, actually. Then again, the main character is also a son of Satan. So, Mephisto could still go either way at this point. He plays loads of "tricks" on his students, such as letting high-level demons on campus to challenge the potential exorcists (particularly Rin) which, he implies, is for the purpose of making them all stronger. But then he may have...some other reasons. The fandom suspicion only mounts the more "tricks" he plays, but there's still too much evidence to support the idea that he may genuinely want to bring peace to Assiah and Gehenna. He was in fact friends with Rin's adoptive father, and was responsible for sealing Rin's demon soul inside the demon sword when Rin was born. Really, he is pretty much the most mysterious character in the series at this point. It's highly possible that he is a Devil In Plain Sight but he may very well be a subversion of the trope. The fandom will have to wait and see.

The TV series Hannibal expands on this aspect of Dr. Hannibal Lecter by initially taking place in the years before his incarceration and elaborating on the backstory and relationships in Red Dragon. Here, Lecter is seen by the world at large as an esteemed psychiatrist, a lover of art and culture, an accomplished gourmet chef and occasionally a helpful professional consultant for the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit.

Harry Potter:
This is inverted in the novels. Harry is utterly convinced that Snape is a terrible villain, but nobody believes him except his friends. Eventually, even they stop believing him. This continues until Snape kills Dumbledore, but is then subverted again when it is revealed that this was a mercy killing, agreed to well in advance, due to Dumbledore suffering under a terrible, incurable, and fatal curse.
Played straight with Draco Malfoy in Half-Blood Prince. That is, nobody thinks he's a good guy, but everybody except Harry stubbornly refuse to believe that a son of the enemy second-in-command might've actually followed in his daddy's steps. There's also a strong element of "What would Voldemort want with Draco?" Draco is just too pathetic to be an actual villain.

Gankutsuou: Let's see, the Count has long, sharp nails, pointed ears, fangs, his picture doesn't develop if he's photographed, has moments of cruel and disturbing behavior, oh yeah, and he's blue. Only one character ever calls attention to his odd features, and Albert can't understand why his friends could possibly suggest that the Count is evil.
Of course in The Count of Monte Cristo, people calling the Count a vampire is a continuously running joke. Even though he isn't blue.

In The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, one of missions you can do for the local assassins' guild involves you, around a half-dozen of poor saps who become your victims, and a house locked from the outside. Funny thing is, you have the choice of telling one of your victims that you are the assassin right before you off everyone (though she just laughs it off).

Neon Genesis Evangelion: Subverted in the manga version; Asuka is always nice to all the NERV staff, but with Shinji, Rei, Toji and Kensuke she is her usual, bitchy self. She keeps up this act for a while until, during a party, she punches out Toji in front of Misato after he starts revealing all her past angry outbursts. Misato then admits that they always knew that Asuka was faking her more amiable personality, prompting her to go ballistic... on Shinji. And then there's Gendo Ikari, the Trope Codifier for Scary Shiny Glasses and Finger-Tenting.

Whateley Universe: Don Sebastiano — that's his chosen codename. I mean, he's known as 'The Don', he turned two teenagers into mindslaves last year, and he's still walking around campus as the head of the Alphas. Yet no one in the school administration seems to realize how badly he needs to be stopped.
Actually, they DO know.... even the Headmistress is fully aware. But they're keeping him on because he is the only link they have to the real, as of yet unknown, mastermind behind his actions....

Reacher Gilt in Going Postal remarks on the fact that he actually tells people he's one of these and they just laugh. For extra effect, he dresses up like a stereotypical pirate, complete with a parrot on his shoulder.

On Total Drama, Heather in the first season; most of the characters actually figure this out pretty quickly, but somehow keep falling for her schemes anyway. Season three's Alejandro is a more egregious example—he lasts until nearly the end of the season before Cody and Sierra, the last "good" contestants, figure him out, while everyone else (save Heather, Noah and Duncan) somehow ignore the fact that every girl he hits on (at least one of whom was spoken for) would be immediately eliminated, or question how he had Tyler reveal Duncan and Gwen's affair in order to win a challenge. Then there's Scott in season 4 who sabotages his own team and blames others. He is found out, but most of the time they're the ones he eliminates.

Hot Fuzz: Simon Skinner, owner of the local supermarket. He often behaves extraordinarily creepy around Sergeant Nick Angel, having a bit of a Psychotic Smirk, making puns about killing and showing up around the murder scenes. The fact that the murders committed lead Angel to believe that Skinner is responsible in order to get more land for his supermarket doesn't help either (though that wasn't the true nature. Turns out Angel's only part right.)
Then there's the wonderful scene where Skinner drives up to a burnt down house with a song about fire playing loudly on his card radio.
In fact, every time Skinner turns up there's a song that's related to the murder. His drive past the scene of the "traffic collision" features Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straits.

Kreia from Knights of the Old Republic 2. A unique example in that everyone except the player's character notices.
Actually both games have a whole bunch of examples. Atris also in the second game, and if the player goes evil, other characters mistake them as such. And then there's the player in the first game, with a twist. Bastila sort of counts too, since it's obvious going to go evil from the start, although she doesn't really qualify as she was turned later on. And Revan and Malak, back when they were Jedi (and everyone who turned with them).

Leave It to Beaver: The iconic television DiPS: Eddie Haskell. Prim and polite to adults, a bullying troublemaker to everyone else. Ward Cleaver to June: "There's something odd about that boy." Beaver to Eddie: "Even Wally doesn't like you, Eddie, and he's your best friend."
The Film of the Series revealed that Mrs. Cleaver knew about Eddie all along.
The film? She had him pegged from day one: "I just don't trust a thirteen-year-old boy who's that polite."

Cape Fear: This trope is the whole point of the film. It's even more obvious in the remake. At least in this case the local police did actually believe the protagonist's accusations, but were powerless anyway due to the antagonist being pretty cunning with regards to legal tricks he can use.

Nobody outside of people he has come in direct contact with (most of the people anyway) seem to notice that Roark Jr. from the Sin City story "That Yellow Bastard" is a psychopathic Serial Killer who has raped, tortured and killed a vast number of little girls (that may be because his father is a United States Senator and no one on the force dares to try to bring him down — at least until John Hartigan gets involved). It's implied that it was a public secret; everybody knew, nobody dared to act.

Dragon Age: Origins: Teyrn Loghain was painfully obvious, though everyone trusts him because he placed the blame on the Grey Wardens and was also a national hero for freeing the kingdom from decades of foreign occupation. The former can also be said of Arl Howe.
Arl Howe was voiced by Tim Curry. Other than being voiced by Curry, though, you probably wouldn't be expecting him to be a bad guy. At first.

Smerdyakov in The Brothers Karamazov is really just thought of as a scullion who has airs of intellectualism about him, and who carries blasphemous notions about religion. He's also thought of as pathetic to others because he suffers from epileptic seizures. The idea of him being the murderer is absurd to everyone in town for these reasons, yet he is. Only the protagonist seems to have any deep misgivings about him. I mean come on, he even flashes Psychotic Smirks whenever given the chance.

The Legend of Zelda
Ocarina of Time gives us Ganondorf. Despite the various red flags this guy gives off (has a constant smug grin, spiky armor, is known to be causing trouble for the various races of Hyrule, is the King of Thieves) the King of Hyrule places all his trust in this guy...which will lead to Hyrule's downfall and Ganondorf's ascension to power as the Great King of Evil.
The third line of dialogue from Chancellor Cole in Spirit Tracks includes an ominous prediction while he stares at you with an insane evil smile. If you are still surprised when he shows himself as the Big Bad of the game five minutes later, you should start getting worried.

Mass Effect gives us more than a few examples.
Saren in the first game - he has glowing, robotic eyes, an arm grafted on from one of the evil robot enemies of the setting, no tattoos in a race where that's considered a sign of distrustfulness, a bunch of weird tubes coming out of his face, and... well, look at the guy, basically. It's often theorized that he was supposed to start out looking fairly normal and then progress to more and more robotic looks as the game went on (for instance, Shepard reacts with shock in a scene after Saren gets some particularly heavy implants, even though he looks no different at all), which would explain why the Council is so doubtful that the guy who has Reaper tech coming out of his face could possibly be a turncoat.
Of note is The Illusive Man, who is Commander Shepard's boss in the second game, and ends up as one of the villains of the third game. It helps that his organization, Cerberus, was openly villainous in the first game. The only reason Shepard is working for him in the second game is that the Reapers are a much bigger threat to both of them.

In Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the Bucket family, especially the grandparents, is dismayed to learn that each of the first four Golden Ticket finders is repulsive in their own way (in order — gluttonous, greedy, proud/rude, slothful). Yet they are all indulged by their parents and acclaimed and celebrated for their luck, which isn't even really luck in Veruca's case, by the rest of the world. The four kids get a very rude awakening to their own faults once they're in the factory, because — while he may not show it at first — Willy Wonka, to say nothing of his Oompa-Loompas, does recognize them for who they are and has No Sympathy for what happens to them when they give in to their vices and meet dreadful fates.

He's quite charming, but Alanna thinks he's a little off and he has a habit of goading Jon to do dangerous things or engineer danger for him (like a plague or a Uriah Gambit) along with sending a couple of Animal Assassins after Alanna... but everyone else adores him, including Jon.We learn at the end of the second book that Roger has magically protected himself from suspicion. The loop hole to the spell is that it only worked on those he created simulacra of. People who were unknown to him like George and Thom were unaffected.

Count Olaf of A Series of Unfortunate Events. Though the Baudelaire orphans always see through his flimsy disguises, none of the adults ever believe them.
Until the last book, when the orphans are shocked to discover a community of adults who immediately perceive Count Olaf as both obviously in disguise and an untrustworthy villain. This comes with its own problems, of course, as they've already encountered "The Slippery Slope".
It probably helped that his costume was algae as a wig and a helmet as a pregnant woman's belly. Also, the leader of the island had a relationship with VFD, and knew of Olaf.

Dollhouse: Laurence Dominic. In episode 5, he tries to kill Echo. In episode 9, he is revealed to be the mole. Note that at the time of the episode's airing, the Dollhouse WMG page had eight guesses as to the identity of the mole, only one of which was a repeat, and yet no one had bothered to guess that it was Dominic. Because we won't fall for such an obvious Red Herring...yeah. And then it turns out he wasn't so much a "devil;" he saw himself as protecting the Dollhouse AND protecting the world from the technology it used. His negative convictions turned out to be right. Nobody important in the House figured that out until too late.

In A Very Potter Musical, Quirrell/Voldemort are played by two people standing back-to-back in the same set of robes. Quirrel's turban covers Voldemort's head, but it looks exactly like what it is: a second head, covered by a turban. Also, the turban occasionally sneezes. Needless to say, this is played for laughs.

In My Hero Academia, Izuku and Mirio come across Eri, a girl wearing a raggedy dress and bandaged arms, who is clearly afraid of her "father" Overhaul, a guy with a beak-mask who's entire looks just screams "I am a Supervillain." What do they do? They let them go. Granted, they knew something was off, but it still creates a "Could Have Avoided This!" Plot

The Black Hole: Dr. Reinhardt. Even though the "heroes" suspect, they don't suspect hard enough. What makes it even more jarring is Reinhardt's explicitly evil robot Dragon Maximilian, who manages to stir up little additional suspicion. (The title of this trope is justified by this movie's Gainax Ending, by the way.)

Done brilliantly in Scream to Meta Twist the viewers. Billy Loomis is obviously the killer. So very obviously the killer. However, in slasher films the killer is never the suspicious guy who obviously is the killer. So imagine everyone's surprise when the killer is revealed, and sure enough it's Billy. Well, it's Billy and Stu Macher, but Billy's clearly the one in charge.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Manfred von Karma. The thing most characters in-game focus on when discussing him is his incredible record as a prosecutor, but... frankly, the guy may as well have 'evil' stamped across his forehead. And then he talks, and it just gets worse.
Damon Gant, Morgan Fey and Kristoph Gavin are better disguised versions, but still obviously bad people.
And Matt Engarde is a much better disguised version. Also his butler, aka Shelly De Killer.
Most culprits have a bad habit of turning into this as the trial goes on, suffering Freak Outs when Phoenix has them on the ropes and openly gloating when they have the upper hand, to the point that, if they were being judged by a real-life jury, most of them would probably be convicted just by how suspicious they're acting. It's implied this very thing might have happened at the end of case 4-4 to Kristoph Gavin, as the new (or, in North America, revived) Jurist System was a key part of that trial.

A Song of Ice and Fire
How anyone in Westeros could ever find it in themselves to trust Roose Bolton, lord of the Dreadfort, is, frankly, shocking. The man's sigil is a flayed man because he comes from a family with a long-standing tradition of skinning their enemies alive and wearing their skins in battle; he always speaks in a Creepy Monotone, is a Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette with godsdamned Creepy Blue Eyes and his favorite pastime is getting leeched. Granted, everyone finds him a little unsettling but still, he's relied upon to perform extremely important roles several times. Trusting him never, ever turns out well.
Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish is obviously up to no good from the moment he appears in A Game Of Thrones. He even flat-out tells Ned Stark not to trust him. When Ned does inexplicably trust him, cue backstab... to nobody's surprise, except Ned's. In the next two novels, where Littlefinger interacts with the Lannisters/the Deadly Decadent Court, mostly everyone seems to think that he is just some ambitious commoner who wants to be a lord, and, apart from the keeping-fairly-mum-about-it Varys, only Tyrion gets how much of a ruthless and dangerous backstabber he really is, or so he thinks. Even Tyrion never imagined that Littlefinger was essentially the Big Bad who deliberately engineered the civil war engulfing the continent, and orchestrated the murder of Jon Arryn that kicked off the plot. He still doesn't know that, in fact — Baelish only confessed it in a Motive Rant to his hostage/protege Sansa Stark, adding that he is doing it for the sake of power, and is well on his way to becoming the most powerful man in the realm. He's probably holding stuff back from her, too.
As it turns out, trusting a random, dodgy commoner who looks like a Rummage Sale Reject, smells worse, goes by the name of Reek and always suggests courses of action that should really set alarm bells off happens — if you're Theon Greyjoy. Seriously, Theon? Ramsay just had to show how much like his dad he can be when he puts his mind to it...

In One Piece Ceasar Clown of the Punk Hazard arc is an Obviously Evil (he even has horns) Mad Scientist who specializes in weapons of mass destruction and regularly performs experiments on kidnapped children and his own subordinates. He has had nearly everyone around him convinced he's a paragon of virtue using a poorly executed combination of transparent lies, fake concern and Crocodile Tears.
The third movie has the main villain Count Butler. He even wears a coat that has the Kanji for EVIL written on his back, all while claiming he isn't evil.

Schneizel el Britannia from Code Geass can be considered one of these. He may be one of Britannia's most prominent royal figures, but masks his true intentions with apparently conciliatory actions, making him appear to be a Princely Young Man, managing to fool most everyone he comes across. Lelouch and Xingke are two notable exceptions. Of course, both have specific and personal reasons not to trust him. In addition, his father knows his real nature, and Suzaku just seems to assume that he's planning on killing his father, now that Zero is dead. Which he was indeed considering.
On the other hand, we've got Cecile and Euphemia who just seem to completely gloss over the fact that Schneizel's first appearance was him ordering their close friend and Euphemia's love interest and Knight, Suzaku, in holding down the main character while he fires deadly lasers at the both of them, with the expectation that Suzaku would die, after some shameless flattery towards the angry Cecile, as well as saying that he was sure that Suzaku would "somehow" survive, and Euphemia has other important things to worry about. Schneizel, himself, smiles and says that Suzaku shouldn't worry - he's not going to court-martial him. For not being killed by him. You have to wonder just how Schneizel can be this blatant, and not seem evil. I'm sure there is something kind of unacceptable about asking someone else's direct subordinates to die - for anyone other than the Emperor, at least.
During the grand finale, Schneizel is the bonus boss after Lelouch successfully killed his psycho parents, because he's in control of an entire army that should hate his guts but is unquestioning towards his orders, while commanding a giant floating airbase with a primary weapon system that fires Freya NUKES at infantry units, and nobody seems to care that even though his opponent is/seems like a tyrant, he's basically the frickin' demon lord. Schneizel reveals his grand plan to Cornelia: take over the world by nuking everything that resists or keeps fighting in civil wars, with the black knights basically prohibiting freedom in the name of justice. She's absolutely disgusted by this and his previous nuking of his own capital to silence any hope of evidence of Lelouch's Geass, but his second in command and media director are in awe and worship of this.
Similarly, Clovis, despite his very short appearance. His public face and his actual ethics are very different. Not that any of his immediate subordinates care.

Despite the various red flags this guy gives off (has a constant smug grin, spiky armor, is known to be causing trouble for the various races of Hyrule, is the King of Thieves) the King of Hyrule places all his trust in this guy...which will lead to Hyrule's downfall and Ganondorf's ascension to power as the Great King of Evil.

Tom Riddle comes across as completely creepy and obviously sinister in both Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, but he's completely trusted and well-liked by the teachers, especially by Slughorn. His creepiness in the films contrasts with the books, where he's stated and shown to be very charming as a young man and very good at presenting himself well.

In Part 1 of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Jonathan Joestar learns very soon after meeting Dio Brando that he's bad news, but very good at faking otherwise, thus winning his father's approval and alienating his friends. It's not until several years later when Jonathan finds evidence of Dio poisoning his father (plus bringing Speedwagon along, since he can tell just by smell a person's true nature) that he brings Dio's evil nature to light.

Game of Thrones:
Littlefinger, as noted in Literature, was already an example in the books, but the series increase the Obviously Evil factor by making him even more slimy and visibly smug.
Among the Northern lords, Roose Bolton sticks out like a sore thumb. While every other Northern lord has a beard, he is almost clean-shaven (before Season 4, anyway). They have rough Northern English accents, he has a vague upper-class Irish accent. They are brash and in-your-face, he is cold and subtle. They suggest a quick death, he suggests flaying people alive for information. The man's sigil is a flayed man and he shows absolutely zero emotion or sympathy while giving Robb nightmarish news.

Johnny the Homicidal Maniac: The title character commits ridiculously over-the-top mass murder and even he himself seems puzzled why he hasn't been caught. It is later revealed that the reason why Johnny doesn't get caught is that he is a "waste-lock", a person created to watch over focal points of residue left over from negative human energy. This is revealed to him by none other than the Devil. It is implied, in the comic "I Feel Sick," that when the accumulated human waste acquires a mind of its own, it can allow a person to do whatever they want, even kill, without being caught. The doll tries to tempt Devi with this devil's deal.

Zim in Invader ZIM.
Dib has apparently cried wolf so many times that the rest of the class seems to ignore the obvious signs to spite him (also because their world is full of ridiculous people like Old Kid and because everyone is remarkably stupid). This is one of the primary reasons for fans of the show Rooting for the Empire. Its hard to support the human race when they are - almost completely - Too Dumb to Live and the prime example of the show's Crapsack World.
"It's like they want to be destroyed!"
The only other person who knows Zim for what he truly is, is Dib's scary sister, Gaz. But she doesn't lift a finger, since she believes Zim is too stupid for his schemes to work. And most of the time she's right.

He's a young arrogant man who hires two assassins as his bodyguards, has a typical evil aristocrat face and attitude and is known by everyone to be a ruthless dictator on his own territory. He even has an evil grin when learning he has his chance to become king of Orchidia instead of his cousins Jadina and Tenebris. Yet, Vangelis actually seems surprised when learning it was him who attempted to kill Jadina and the Legendaries in the Gamera Mines. Partially subverted/inverted later however, as it turns out Kasino was actually nothing more than an Unwitting Pawn and the actual villain was Vangelis

Soundwave definitely qualifies in his premiere episode. Bulkhead spends half the episode trying to convince everyone else that the robot is evil. Guess who was right.
Longarm also fits, given that he was hinted the entirety of "Autoboot Camp" to be The Mole. The fact that he was actually Shockwave in disguise, we didn't see coming.

Subverted and parodied in the Blackadder Goes Forth episode "General Hospital"; a German spy has infiltrated a nearby field hospital and Blackadder is assigned to find out who it is. In the field hospital, he meets a wounded man with a German accent so thick it could be spread on bread ("My name... eeeees Meeeiiiister... Smeeeeth.") who's always skulking around acting suspicious. Turns out he is a spy... a British spy, who's been undercover in Germany so long he's picked up "a teensy bit of an accent", and was even the one who informed Melchett there was a spy there in the first place. Blackadder even lampshades how ludicrous it would be for the Germans to place in a British field hospital a spy with a thick German accent. This doesn't stop Darling from humiliating himself by trying to arrest him, however, or George from blithely asking him whether he had seen any spies in the hospital (and this was not George being clever enough to realise that the man with a strong accent couldn't be a spy, he was simply too thick to notice it).
Also done literally in the The Black Adder episode, Witchsmeller Pursuivant. When Prince Edmund is accused by the titular Witchsmeller of being a witch, during his trial, he calls a random peasant woman to testify against Edmund, and who claims she bore his son, which the Witchsmeller claims is "the son of Satan." He then asks the people watching the trial if they can "see this son of Satan anywhere in this room?" When the camera shows the people looking at the person next to them to see who it is, it shows what clearly looks like a Devil at 2:04, but no-one apparently realises this.

The Demon Princes: The titular villains from Jack Vance's series, despite being infamous pirate lords and criminal bosses, value their anonymity and are essentially this. One has a position at a prestigious university, and on one occasion the hero Kirth Gersen gets into a bar fight with a Demon Prince without knowing. Often, the most difficult thing for Gersen is just figuring out who the Demon Prince is.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
Zig-Zagging Trope in the season two finale. Twilight Sparkle assumes Princess Cadence is evil, namely because she didn't respond to her Secret Handshake, and how she (Cadence) mistreats her friends. She tries to warn her friends, but they simply wave it off, and her last attempt causes them to leave her in disgust. It isn't until Twilight arrives with the real Cadence that she is sorta proven right. But by then, the Changeling impersonating Cadence had already become too powerful to stop. In short, the show is subverting "Bitch in Sheep's Clothing" by playing it literally.
Diamond Tiara was a downplayed example. She mercilessly bullied the Cutie Mark Crusaders, sometimes in the presence of adults, and seldom got punished for it.

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series: Bakura is this to a huge degree. His introduction scene is complete with Ominous Latin Chanting and when asked to show his favourite card, he whips out a picture of Sephiroth before hastily replacing it.
And Alex Brisbane, Mr "I'm Most Definitely Not a Villain". Fortunately he only has to trick Tristan, Tea, Joey and Yugi, which isn't exactly difficult.
And then there's Marik Ishtar "Malik Blishtar"...

Zola Dane from Drakan: The Ancient Gates. Bad foreshadowing, gesticulations, and voice acting (not to mention if you actually talk to him before going to the Shadowmire) make it an Un Reveal when you have to kick his butt the first time.

Jafar from Aladdin is a lean, shifty, diabolical sorcerer dressed predominantly in red and black colors with a penchant for hypnotizing Agrabah's sultan, yet nobody seems to regard him as anything more than a disfavored servant at worst. He's so obviously diabolical the movie actually pokes fun at it numerous times with the Sultan's... less-than-stellar judge of character:

South Park.:
Cartman. In many ways, this trope is averted: after all, most of the characters know just how horrible he is. That said, Stan and Kyle oftentimes get punished right alongside him, despite being generally good kids who are usually trying to stop whatever evil scheme he has going. This becomes especially painful (not to mention a Downer Ending) in "Toilet Paper," in which they're given much harsher punishments despite being genuinely apologetic—unlike Cartman, who only apologized so they would get most of the blame. The best example, which is lampshaded, is the episode "Cartman's Incredible Gift". In the episode, Cartman pretends to have psychic powers and the police blindly listen to whatever he says, ignoring important evidence. Kyle suspects a disturbed man to be a vicious serial killer (he is) and tries to tell the police about him but they are completely blind to the killer's suspicious behavior and mannerisms and make no attempt to bring him in for questioning.
A better example would be the one-time character Hat McCulloch, a murderer of 23 babies who has a very large following of fans who believe his innocence. At the end, when they do get him released from jail, the man seems to blurt out "Kill the innocent" and "Rape the virgins", and then finally asks for a baby, who the townspeople promptly hand over.

In Dragon Age II, Mother Petrice. Tell me you didn't look at that cold, piercing gaze and at least predict she'd be a Smug Snake.
Also Bartrand. Listening to him, you wonder why anyone works for him, why Varric hasn't abandoned him, and why Hawke and the rest of the group don't just shoot him on sight. It would have saved them a lot of trouble.

Michelle in Grand Theft Auto IV. From the newly bought furniture to her not really answering Niko's questions as to what she does to her near-constant questions asking if Niko and friends are involved in crime, it's pretty obvious that she's really an undercover government agent...well, obvious to everyone except for the in-game characters. Although Niko does occasionally comment "There's something strange about that girl..." right after they have sex.

Exaggerated in To Boldly Flee. Mechakara is this from the start: his voice noticeably synthesized and he acts completely differently from Linkara. Then he assimilates the Nostalgia Chick, and she looks like Seven of Nine, her voice is even more synthesized, and she starts using Robo Speak. And then he assimilates Todd, who becomes Robocop. Most of them still don't notice.

Doctor Doom makes frequent attempts to take over the world that would be considered acts of war by real world standards, and most governments in the world just ignore him. No wonder he feels he is better suited to rule the world. This may count as Fridge Brilliance though: maybe world leaders have gotten the clue that all Doom wants is to keep having his little tiff with Reed Richards, so they just lay low and let the Fantastic Four deal with him to avoid getting targeted and devastated by Doom rather than just battered a bit in the crossfire.

Patricia in House of Anubis- At least when she becomes a sinner. She tricked the others into believing the sinner was KT, while her out of character attitude should have suggested otherwise. A lot of the other villains seem to fall under this as well, such as Rufus- who wore all black, and was basically stalking Patricia for a few episodes before they met.

In Breaking Bad, this is the modus operandi for many of the major players in the drug industry.
Saul Goodman, the Amoral Attorney of the industry, places cheesy adverts on benches and TV channels, appearing as a cheap and unscrupulous Ambulance Chaser instead of the hyper-competent law-breaker he is.
Gustavo Fring, the biggest boss in the Albuquerque-area drug trade, raises money and galas for his adversaries in the Drug Enforcement Administration, is a very public pillar of the community, and is commonly seen at his (legitimate) businesses overseeing operations as a Benevolent Boss.
The protagonist, Walter White himself, keeps his job as a high school teacher and continues hanging out with his DEA brother-in-law, despite getting deeper into the drug trade.

Hiruma from Eyeshield 21 plays with this trope; he's a conniving, scheming, trigger-happy Magnificent Bastard and doesn't care who knows it (his name can even be read as "devil in broad daylight"). Also, he avoids repercussions for his actions not by avoiding or sucking up to authority figures, but by blackmailing them. And he looks pretty devilish, to boot.

From Custom Robo for the Gamecube, there is Evil, a flamboyantly overdressed nemesis to the player and the Steel Hearts...he seems more like a Smug Snake who exists to beat the Steel Hearts to all the good jobs, at first. While it stuns the cast when he declares his true intentions, it's no surprise to the player when he defects to the Z Syndicate with a Robo that will destroy the world to try and gain favor with the Z-twins.

Mr. Morden in Babylon 5. In his first appearance, he's faultlessly polite, and even does an unasked-for favor for Ambassador Mollari ...and yet he's got an unsettling and even sinister air about him that clearly marks him as "evil". Only Kosh and Delenn recognize him for what he is that first time (and it takes a moment for Delenn), and by "The Coming of Shadows" in Season 2, Vir has also realized that Morden is trouble (relatively quickly, as Vir didn't even know about Morden until the last episode of season 1).

Charlotte Wills, a minor antagonist in Torchwood: Miracle Day, is a CIA watch analyst who's also working as The Mole for The Omniscient Council of Vagueness known as the Three Families. From her shifty mannerisms and openly nervous behavior when her colleagues try to figure out who among them is a traitor right down to her choice of bold, red clothing, it's clear she does very little to hide the fact that she's up to something. Naturally, no one catches on until the last moments of the finale.

Played straight with Draco Malfoy in Half-Blood Prince. That is, nobody thinks he's a good guy, but everybody except Harry stubbornly refuse to believe that a son of the enemy second-in-command might've actually followed in his daddy's steps. There's also a strong element of "What would Voldemort want with Draco?" Draco is just too pathetic to be an actual villain.

The remake of The Omen (2006). Unlike the original, where Damien's angelic look was in a striking contrast to his infernal nature, the new Damien is constantly frowning, glouting, is generally creepy and has an "I-hate-you-all-and-hope-you-will-burn-for-all-eternity" look at all times.
