* From the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'':
** This is a frequent characterization of {{Wolverine}}. He's always talking back to authority figures, even if he agrees with their choices, will regularly get into fight with friends with next to no provocation (at one point trying to kill Colossus for ''daring'' to save his life) and is unapologetic in his killing, few cases aside, because he thinks, no matter what people say, it's what they want from him. However, he is deeply loyal to his friends, and will go out of his way to get his own hands dirty so no one else has to.

* J. Jonah Jameson from the ''Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}'' comics is another good example. Sure, he's short-tempered, tight-fisted, and an often obnoxious loudmouth, but he's also been shown as a tireless crusader supporting everything from labor union rights to mutant rights, going after organized crime figures and corrupt politicians despite repeated attempts on his life, and discreetly supporting various charities and social projects, and even hiring a good lawyer for Peter Parker when Parker was falsely accused of murder. He's been pretty much consistently portrayed as a social liberal whose ideals are wrapped in civil liberty and constitutional rights. despite the fact that he's a mean-spirited douche to the people around him.

Added DiffLines:

* ComicBook/{{TheSandman}} is notoriously insensitive, vindictive and self-centered, and his treatment of former lovers can be downright appaling. But after being imprisoned, he is more than willing to make amends (at least whenever someone calls him out for his cruelties).

** JJ was once offered a deal: if he stopped bashing Spidey every time he needed an editorial, he'd get an exclusivity deal with the ComicBook/NewAvengers. He even got to hear ''[[CaptainAmerica Captain Fucking America]]'' tell him Spidey was a hero rather than a monster. His response? After shaking hands on the deal, he promptly went back to not only committing libel, but making accusations of bribery and digging up things like "wanted murderer" (Wolverine), "terrorist" (Spider-Woman) and "convicted drug dealer" (Luke Cage, who was framed and ''exonerated'').

* Jack Horner from the ''ComicBook/{{Fables}}'' series, is written as this sociopathic jerk who is ignorant of the feelings of others. A lot of fans and critics generally hated him, to the point that series editors just casually keep him in the series because he was a Creator'sPet or TheScrappy. Still, he generated just enough fanbase, not just to keep him in the series, but also to have his own spin-off comic. His jerkiness also has its roots: he's the literal personification of ''every fictional pranksters and tricksters named Jack'', and so he couldn't help being an asshole most of the time. And while he does act like this most of the time, what makes him unique is that it always surprise (and admires) readers everytime he does something selfless.

*** It should be noted that during {{Stan Lee}}'s run on Spider-Man Jameson is always a JerkAss [[TheScrooge Scrooge]] who feels that appearing to have a heart of gold is the best way to make money.

* [[YouDirtyRat Rat]] from ''{{Pearls Before Swine}}'' qualifies as this sometimes, though the more sociopathic side of his personality tends to be emphasized. One time Pig jumped off a roof believing he could fly ({{It Makes Sense in Context}}) and, after waking up in the hospital asked Rat what happened. Rat begins to tell him the truth, but then pauses and says instead that Pig hit his head on the moon.

* SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom loves pushing people around and launching attacks against his enemies (namely everybody who's not him) but has warmth for his citizenry particularly the children of Latveria. In a truly shocking moment, he forgave past grudges and aided the Invisible Woman with her recent birth, saving both Sue and her baby from certain death. As such, the daughter, Valeria, is held as an endeared one under his personal protection and allowed unrestricted audience, while the child returns his affection and refers to him informally as Uncle Doom. Awwwwww. (Warning: This is most definitely a DependingOnTheWriter quality.)
