** Kate (Kevin's mom) would also qualify before developing into a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. At the beginning of the movie, everyone insults Kevin for not being able to pack his suitcase. Then, Buzz deliberately eats Kevin's plain cheese pizza (knowing he hates other toppings) and mockingly offers to barf it up. Kevin promptly attacks him and the worst he caused was getting milk spilled on the table on some passports the night before the trip, and causing some dismay and chaos. His relatives call him a "Little Jerk" and a disease. Kate's reaction to all of the abuse? Sending him to the attic, telling him "It's too late" when he apologizes and declaring, "You're the only one in this family who causes trouble."

** In the first movie, Kevin watches an old gangster movie that he was previously not allowed to see. It ends up scaring him at first. Then he realizes it has more practical uses: so he orders a pizza, and uses the audio of that scene to scare the pizza delivery man. Later, he reuses the scene again, but adds firecrackers to the bit where Johnny fires his Tommy gun to make it louder and fool Harry and Marv into thinking that someone else has beaten them to the house.

* Irony: While posing a police officer in order to get information on the McCallisters security systems and when they will be leaving, he claims the reason he's asking is because he's checking to make sure that people are taking proper precautions due to the high rate of burglaries around the holidays, when he in fact is a burglar himself intending to rob the house.
