* ''WebAnimation/NoEvil'':
** Ichabod. He can be arrogant, abrasive, condescending and entitled. The plot that links "Brom Bones" and "Wrip an' Vinkle" came about because of his crush on Wrip and his clear belief that she should be with him because he's smarter than Vinkle. However, when Vinkle is trapped in the Black Ick and put in a near-death comatose state, [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy it's Ichabod who figures out how to save him]]. He's also deeply loyal to both his sister Calamity and their mutual friend Huey, even if he does lash out at them when he's in a funk, and risks his life to try and find Kitty in "Three for a Death".
** Calamity can also be like this. She's the most sarcastic member of the cast, which is a legitimate achievement considering that Kitty is no slouch in that department either, and can be lazy, standoffish, rebellious and stunningly tactless (cracking jokes about Vinkle while he's trapped in the Ick, for example). She's also put her life on the line multiple times to protect innocents and people she cares about, tries to cheer up Ichabod when he's down, and doesn't hold much of a grudge over Corn ''biting her with poisonous fangs on multiple occasions''.
** Murder/Xipetotec in the prequel comic, ''Judgment''. She's notably sarcastic sliding into outright rude, takes a very ''direct'' approach to morality (when Amaroq forces Huey to poke the Blue Tezcatlipoca and get a nasty electric shock, she immediately forces Amaroq to do the same), and her name ''is literally Murder''. The reason she's not in the series proper is that [[HeroicSacrifice she gave her life to stop the Black Ick.]] She had previously attempted to sacrifice herself to stop a volcano.

** Weiss has a razor sharp and unrelenting tongue, but at the end of the day is shown to care about her teammates. Her initial bickering with Ruby has turned to them being VitriolicBestBuds and [[spoiler: Blake's being an ex-member of the White Fang?]] After some time to cool off and think about it she decided she just doesn't really care.

** Weiss has a razor sharp and unrelenting tongue, but at the end of the day is shown to care about her teammates.teammates, not just in battle where she often saves them from tight spots with her versatile glyphs and has more than once taken a hit for a teammate, but also outside of battle. Her initial bickering with Ruby has turned to them being VitriolicBestBuds and [[spoiler: Blake's being an ex-member of the White Fang?]] After some time to cool off and think about it she decided she just doesn't really care. Later on, she reveals a compassionate, supportive side to her teammates - in Volume 3 when [[spoiler:Yang is framed for assaulting Mercury]], Weiss is very vocal in defending her even against the very stern doubts of the general of the Atlesian military.

** Lisa's not as much as Alex, but as Autmn points out in 'The Camping Webisode', she has some hidden kindness.

* ''WebOriginal/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'' is a man with an [[HairTriggerTemper extremely short temper]] and [[SirSwearsALot legendary foul mouth]] who won't hesitate to [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown throw down with somebody at the slightest provocation]], but he's also repeatedly been shown to be a decent and fun-loving guy when he's not raging and continues his reviewing of bad games because he loves his fans. He'll even give compliments to the bad games he reviews if he feels they deserve it, and even point out the flaws of the games he does like.

* In ''Podcast/RollToBreathe'' Black Cavalier is stand-offish at best and a bully at worst, but she never intends to hurt people and really does care for whatever relationship she has on the team.

* While we're talking about Rooster Teeth productions, we have Weiss from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' who has a razor sharp and unrelenting tongue, but at the end of the day is shown to care about her teammates. Her initial bickering with Ruby has turned to them being {{vitriolic best buds}} and [[spoiler: Blake's being an ex-member of the White Fang?]] After some time to cool off and think about it she decided she just doesn't really care.
** Yang can count as one as well, even if the "Jerk" part is less so than Weiss for the most part. She's impulsive, is the only team member to [[InHarmsWay not have a heroic]] [[BloodKnight reason to be a Huntress]], [[HairTriggerTemper is very quick to anger]], and sees nothing wrong in shoving Blake, her teammate and partner, against a desk when she's angry at her (even when Blake can't fight back or defend herself, though to be fair, Yang did it so Blake could see [[HeroicRROD she was in no condition to fight at the time]]). Nevertheless, she does her best to be friendly to others, [[CoolBigSis loves her sister Ruby to death]], helps the others stop [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters The White Fang]] and [[BreakoutVillain Roman Torchwick]], and genuinely appreciates her friendship with Blake.

** Sarge is a crazy BloodKnight, who is constantly taking his squad on suicide missions, often abuses [[ButtMonkey Grif]], and has an irrational hatred for the blues, even long after they made peace with each other and he ''himself'' has fought beside them and been willing to come to their aid. But deep down, he does genuinely care about both teams and their allies, and at the end of the day, will risk life and limb to save those in need.
** Grif is an unrepentant snarky slacker (and proud of it), who bemoans doing the slightest bit of work, constantly complains about having to be where he is, and is very good at getting on peoples' bad side. But he is also a loving brother to his younger sister, and though he hates to admit it, does care about his comrades on some level and will risk his life fighting alongside them. As Sarge himself (who Grif ''definitely'' doesn't get along with) put it, despite his constant bemoaning at being stuck with them, Grif's had ''many'' chances to just walk away and no one would have stopped him.

But, she also stops street crimes on her own, even though she has nothing gain from it, does still care about her sister in spite of how much she frustrates her, and does ultimately risk her life to save her teammates.

** [[NiceGuy Jaune Arc]] of all people is turned into an egotistical CasanovaWannabe who talks down Pieria for "dressing like a hussie" and acts like an UngratefulBastard to her, despite being nice to him. ([[GoodIsNotSoft Not that she can't pay it back in full.]]) But at the end of the day, he still comes through for his team and ends up saving their lives, and is even one of the few people who is on more or less friendly terms with Ruby.
