* AlanWake, from the game of the same name, is a slightly milder case of this than usual. He and his wife Alice travel to [[TheOtherRainforest Bright Falls]] for a vacation, but when Alice reveals that she brought a typewriter along to try and end his two-year writer's block, he immediately flips out, yelling at her and storming out of their cabin into the night, knowing full well that Alice is afraid of the dark. He punches out a psychologist who ''also'' tries to help him with the writer's block (although the pyschologist ''is'' a SmugSnake). In an interview seen via flashback, he's mentioned as having a temper, and is strongly implied to have punched a member of the paparazzi. His tendency to be a jerk is basically limited to these incidents, though.

* Tubbs from ''Videogame/NekoAtsume''. Unlike other cats who nibble a few bites from the bowl and then play with your toys, Tubbs will gobble the entire bowl and then lounge next to it with a smug look on their face. It's not uncommon for players to put out food, close the app, come back maybe 2-3 minutes later, only to discover that Tubbs has beaten everyone else to the punch. Oh, and don't think of putting out Thrifty Bitz to stop him from eating food you actually pay for, because ''[[PickyEater he won't eat it]].''

* ''Videogame/DarkestDungeon'': Perhaps the most dangerous [[HeroicBSOD Affliction]] your heroes can suffer is becoming Abusive, as all of a sudden they will start belting out insults left and right, and belittling their party members for every little thing, even if they're ''healing'' the abusive party member. Even the kindest, most understanding fellows in the group will verbally abuse their teammates with little provocation once afflicted. This will quickly stress their partners out, which usually gets some DisasterDominoes started.

* Monokuma from ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa''. And a murderous Jerkass at that, which you find out early enough that that's not a spoiler, it's the entire point of his character. Byakuya Togami, the Ultimate Affluent Progeny, also counts, as does Touko Fukawa, the Ultimate Writer. [[spoiler: Leon]], the Ultimate [[spoiler: baseball player]], and [[spoiler: Celes]], the Ultimate [[spoiler: gambler]], become like this during trials where they're the culprits and are about to be found out. [[spoiler: Mondo]], the Ultimate [[spoiler:biker gang leader]], is an aggressive guy with an intimidating reputation, who also becomes a culprit, but isn't ''quite'' nasty enough to fit this trope.

to:

* *''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa''.
** Monokuma, full stop. He presides over a "killing game," in which only the person who commits murder and avoids being caught can escape, at which point everyone else gets executed. When the culprits are inevitably caught,
Monokuma sentences them to [[CruelAndUnusualDeath being executed in a very painful manner]], and laughs about their reasons for committing the murder, ignoring his own responsibility. In [[VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2 the sequel]], he also makes a habit of abusing his "little sister" Monomi [[spoiler:and casually has her executed along with the "traitor" from ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa''. And a murderous Jerkass at that, which you find out early enough that that's not a spoiler, it's the entire point of his character. Byakuya Future Foundation as an afterthought]].
**Byakuya
Togami, the Ultimate Affluent Progeny, Progeny. In addition to [[InsufferableGenius treating his classmates with contempt for being less talented than he is]], he initially treats the killings as a game and even openly contemplates trying to kill someone and graduate. [[spoiler:He also counts, as does Touko Fukawa, knows who the second murderer is, but withholds that knowledge and rearranges the crime scene in order to see who would be most likely to catch him. He becomes somewhat more cooperative later on, but he still acts arrogant and dismissive toward most peopl]].
**Celestia Ludenberg,
the Ultimate Writer. [[spoiler: Leon]], Gambler, is almost as callous as Byakuya, and even coldly suggests the second victim was to blame for not following her "night time" rule. [[spoiler:She also manipulates another student into killing someone, and then [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness kills her accomplice]] to commit the murder required to graduate]].
** In the sequel, there's Fuyuhiko Kuzuryuu,
the Ultimate [[spoiler: baseball player]], Yakuza, who refuses to associate with the group, and [[spoiler: Celes]], contemptuously describes cooperation and friendship as having no place in a killing game. [[spoiler:While he's responsible for the second murder happening, he doesn't kill anyone himself, and after losing his childhood friend Peko, and then losing an eye while trying to save her, he develops into a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who's still short-tempered and abrasive, but is willing to help and even sacrifice himself for the others]].
** Also from the sequel, there's Hiyoko Saionji,
the Ultimate [[spoiler: gambler]], become like this during trials where they're Traditional Dancer, who's first introduced crushing ants for fun and mercilessly bullies some of her classmates. [[spoiler:She gets a little better after losing her best friend, but then gets killed by one of the culprits and are about to be found out. [[spoiler: Mondo]], people she bullied, albeit [[HeKnowsTooMuch for reasons unrelated to]] the Ultimate [[spoiler:biker gang leader]], is an aggressive guy with an intimidating reputation, who also becomes a culprit, but isn't ''quite'' nasty enough to fit this trope.bullying]].

* Bass in ''VideoGame/MegaManClassic''.

* Bass in ''VideoGame/MegaManClassic''.''VideoGame/MegaManClassic'' is incredibly arrogant and constantly insults anyone he sees as weak.

* ''VideoGame/DragonQuest series:''
**
[[PrinceCharmless Prince Charmles(s)]] from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII''.''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'' is probably the worst one in the series. ''Oy.'''' He's an arrogant entitled prince who frequently insults everyone around him. He then demands you to fetch an Argon Heart so he can ascend the throne. When hunting Argon Lizards, he continuously demands a bigger heart, [[DirtyCoward while he flees any battle with them and watches you fight]]. Eventually, he decides to cheat the challenge and buy an Argon Heart because he thinks the one you got for him was still too small. And this is after you fought a Great Argon Lizard. [[spoiler: Thankfully, his dad King Clavius finds out about this, and decides to [[LaserGuidedKarma not give Charmles the throne as he feels he's too immature to be a decent ruler.]]]]



** At the start of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVII'', Maribel is an obnoxious, spoiled, selfish, elitist RichBitch. In the first world (Rexwood), when the party discovers that the town is being attacked by monsters who kidnapped its women and children, her response is essentially "Oh boo hoo hoo. When do we leave this dump?" Not to mention how she constantly mocks, insults and puts down the rest of the party, especially Hero. Over the course of the game though, she gradually [[CharacterDevelopment develops]] into a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, and eventually after that loses the "jerk" part altogether.

* The ''{{Suikoden}}' series has Luc who is one of the most powerful wizards in the entire series to be a petty dick.
** In Suikoden2, his only Combo attack is with two warrior-types. They rush forward to attack the enemy... and he blasts them ''and'' the enemy with a massive air attack, damaging both of them. That's right: He's such a petty dick that it actually affects the game mechanics.

** It's revealed via event in the remakes, however, he has a FreudianExcuse for this; [[spoiler: his father abandoning him after Team Rocket's defeat at the hands of [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Red]], an 11-year-old boy, three years before, when he was only 8/9. Not wanting to be weak like his father, from then on he swore to become stronger at any cost]]. His HeelFaceTurn feels more genuine this time around thanks to this and his development becoming more visible, and especially if one takes into consideration the double battle in Kanto with him wanting to be on the same team as the player, and how in both the originals and the remakes his Golbat evolves into a Crobat, something that can only be achieved through [[ThePowerOfFriendship high friendship]]. Dawwww...
** Of course, while not as much as Silver, we can't forget the original jerk and his predecessor rival, [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Blue Oak]]. He's a snotty, arrogant, immature brat who berates the player at every opportunity, waits to ambush him at every turn, including at the end of really tedious dungeons and [[GoddamnBats Zubat]] caves when you least expect it, has the really arrogant-sounding {{catchphrase}}s of "Bonjour" and "Smell ya later!", and throws a tantrum when he loses. This is probably best shown in ''Pokemon Yellow'' where he shoves away Red (the player) to nab the Eevee that was supposed to be given to his rival. Oh, [[AllThereInTheManual according to the old manual of the original games]], he and Red [[UsedToBeASweetKid used to be the best of friends]] until Blue suddenly became a bully towards him one day, for no particular reason. Unlike Silver, there's no discernible reason why he's like this either other than KidsAreCruel. There's a reason why so many people then and now, of all ages, love to [[HelloInsertNameHere name]] him "dicks" or "asshat" from their second playthrough onward, and that's he become practically an icon of video game jerks. He becomes nicer eventually though, while it takes until ''Gold and Silver'' for him to do so, and he always keeps a bit of an arrogant streak as part of his character.
** Clair, the eighth Johto Gym Leader, is quite the arrogant bitch. She refuses to give you the final Badge even after you beat her until you pass the Dragons' Den test... and in ''Crystal'', even after you pass she STILL refuses to give it up until the shrine elder threatens to report her to her cousing ''[[{{Badass}} Lance]]''.
