** Similarly in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', you start off as a prisoner of the Empire, having been in the wrong place at the wrong time, being captured along with [[RebelLeader Ulfric Stormcloak]] and his supporters. Despite having committed no real crime, the Imperial guard captain orders that you are to be executed as well for no apparent reason, and does so in a tone more befitting of berating a lower ranking soldier than sentencing someone ''to death''. So grating is her jerkassery that many players have cited her as the reason for joining the Stormcloaks (a group of [[FantasticRacism openly racist]], [[HonorBeforeReason short-sighted]], [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters rebel organization]] who follow a man that [[TheKingslayer openly assassinated the former High King of Skyrim]] using an archaic DuelToTheDeath law as justification) to ''bring down the Empire'' within Skyrim.

*** Alduin, the draconic BigBad. Like most of the series' deities, he is technically AboveGoodAndEvil and operates on his own scale of BlueAndOrangeMorality. It is his divine mandate to "[[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt eat the world]]" at the end of every "kalpa" ([[EternalRecurrence cycle of time]]) so that it can be remade anew. As such, there are those (like the Greybeards) who don't automatically accept that stopping Alduin is a good thing. However, given his behavior, whether or not he's evil, whether or not he's in the right, it's hard to deny that Alduin is an ''asshole''.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'', directly after you decide what race and sex your character is, you find yourself in a prison cell. A dark elf prisoner across the hall gets your attention, then procedes to insult you and your entire race, then claims that the guards are going to kill you. Of course, in the event that you choose to become a dark elf, he doesn't insult you or your race... if you're male, he says that you probably have a wife or girlfriend back home, and then he says that he'll find her and "comfort" her about your death when he's freed. If you're female, he says that he'll get the guards to let you into his cell, to have some "fun." In both cases, he does tell you that you're going to be killed, though. Not a nice person. [[spoiler:Ironically, in one of the Dark Brotherhood quests, ''you'' end up killing ''him''. And his sentence was almost up, too.]]
** [[spoiler: The Dark Brotherhood quest ends up casting him in a new, sympathetic light, as they are prone to do before forcing you to kick the dog. He's only callous as a defense mechanism, a fact which everybody around him realizes, and nobody takes him seriously for. The guard even tries to comfort him or at least engage him in a conversation, although he ends up getting insulted for his troubles, with blatant lies that come off far more pathetic and depressing then enraging. Of course, you still have to kill him.]]

*** In the ''Shivering Isles'' expansion, this a trait of the Aureals (aka Golden Saints), a form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] in service to [[MadGod Sheogorath]]. They are a ProudWarriorRace {{Matriarchy}} which openly looks down upon all mortals. Even at the the end, when [[spoiler:you [[AGodIsyou inherit the mantle]] of Sheogorath]], they don't get much nicer.

* At the beginning of the first VideoGame/{{Shivers}} game, the first thing you see is you being locked in a haunted museum by your friends. Never mind the fact that two kids went missing in there before and were never seen again, they just laugh and joke about it. Then they have the gall to go see a movie together while you fight for your life.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden}}' series has Luc who is one of the most powerful wizards in the entire series to be a petty dick.
** In VideoGame/SuikodenII, 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.

* Dainton Wu from ''VideoGame/{{Delicious}} 10: Emily's New Beginning'' is snobbish, arrogant, abrasive and absolutely loathes children. He belittles Emily at every turn and constantly calls her unprofessional despite the fact that she's spent the last nine games working in or running a restaurant. During the chapter where she's forced to work for him he refuses to let her have a day off for her daughter's ''first birthday party'' because days off are only for ''three''-star restaurants.

** [[spoiler: Tohru Adachi]] takes this UpToEleven by essentially murdering two people because [[spoiler: they rejected his romatic advances (read: super-creepy attempts to proposition them)]] and then tricking another guy into attempting several more murders just so he could sit back and watch. And when called out on it, his answer is basically "Yeah, so what?"
* ''VideoGame/Persona5'': Most of the targets of the Phantom Theives are people who are highly saturated with jerk assery all over them.

** Madarame. The reasons for this are that he plagiarizes his own students artwork as his own, is a sleazy con artist who cheats people who want to buy the Sayuri painting out of their money by giving them counterfeits and he committed negligent homicide on Yusuke's mother by neglecting to call an ambulance when she had a seizure all so he could gain full custody and bragging rights over her Sayuri painting.
** Masayoshi Shido. He is amped up with so much jerk in him. He causes the events of the game by stalking women and when he gets caught by the protagonist doing it, he gets the protagonist arrested on false charges. He then has his own son, Goro Akechi assassinate people in an attempt to demonize the Phantom Theives and make them look like criminals instead of superheroes to the public. He then runs for prime minister of Japan for selfish gain. If that's not enough, he killed Futaba's mother, forged a suicide note to demonize Futaba's and then stole her mom's research and then he had Goro murder Haru's father.
