You meet someone you think is a really Nice Guy/Girl, or perhaps you meet a favorite celebrity for the first time, thinking that they'll be just as warm-hearted and cool as they are on camera. However, something happens to show their true colors, revealing an immature brat, total Jerk, or even outright villain.
Congratulations. You've just met the Villian in Sheep's Clothing — the polar opposite of a Jerk with a Heart of Gold.
Their favorite tactic pretending to be a victim to manipulate others of this sort of antagonist, and if they are genuinely evil, expect them to be a Villain with Good Publicity.
The "Nice Guy" who hides a cruel, self-centered nature under superficial inoffensiveness is also a Villian In Sheep's Clothing.
In romance plots, the Villian in Sheep's Clothing is usually trying to date, dating, or about to marry another character, and is hiding their true colors. Occasionally, the Villian in Sheep's Clothing genuinely was a nice person... but suffered sudden Character Derailment in order to remove their status as a love interest for another character. In any case, expect them to make an Engineered Public Confession in one form or another.
In some cases however, a Villian In Sheep's Clothing can be sympathetic. Many lighter cases involve a scenario in which a fairly flawed yet well intentioned character make themselves out to be more benevolent than they really are (especially if they have a high profile of themselves). More often than not, this charade falls apart and their true persona blasts out, usually in an extreme manner that makes them look even worse than they usually are. In some cases, a Villian In Sheep's Clothing can lean more towards Jerk with a Heart of Gold if they aren't too busy hiding their unpleasant qualities with an overenacted facade, instead of showing their genuine (and usually resented) redeeming aspects. Maybe someone will seem like this, then you realize they are just a type B Tsundere.
