** Dudley Dursley is the very first jerkass introduced in the series, But when Harry saved himself and Dudley from Dementors in Book 5, [[spoiler: WordOfGod says that when he was having his soul sucked out, he saw every memory of himself objectively, causing a massive WhatHaveIDone moment for him. From then, he starts becoming better with Harry and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming in the last book, the two finally patch up. WordOfGod says they're on Christmas card relations]].]]

** Dudley Dursley is the very first jerkass introduced in the series, although he and his parents pale in comparison to most of the others introduced later on. Malfoy essentially does everything he does but better (or worse, rather), and Dudley’s ButtMonkey ensures he repeatedly gets what’s coming. However, when Harry saved himself and Dudley from Dementors in Book 5, [[spoiler: WordOfGod says that when he was having his soul sucked out, he saw every memory of himself objectively, causing a massive WhatHaveIDone moment for him.

Added DiffLines:

* Bryce, his father, and his friend Garret from ''Literature/Flipped''. Bryce for self-assertion, Garret and Mr. Loski just for the sake of being it. Naturally, the former grows out of it by the end while the latter two don't (Mrs. Loski is on the verge of getting a divorce by the end of the novel).
** The Loski's daughter seems to be this too. Really tells you how great of a parent the father is.

They deliberately dropped a magical candy in front of Dudley Dursley, knowing the muggle has problems with over-eating just to see what would happen. It was Two-Ton Tongue Taffy; Mr. Weasley had to fix it. Wizarding law is supposed to protect muggles from that kind of magical prank (in fact, it's a direct violation of the department their father belongs to, and it's one of the few moments where Arthur scolds the twins.) They also test their joke products on First Years (11 year old kids, some of whom are muggle-born and had little experience with magic beforehand), sneak into the Hogwarts kitchen to get snacks (then lie about how hard it was to steal the treats, even though the House elves willingly give away food if someone asks), and center most of their other 'pranks' on Percy Weasley. Said pranks include stealing and enchanted Percy's Head Boy badge, bewitching snowballs to attack him, trying to lock Percy into a pyramid in Egypt (only stopped because their mother caught them in time), and sending dung to Percy's office after he gets a job in the Ministry. (All of this happens before Percy decides he would rather stick with the Ministry than believe in Dumbledore like the rest of his family. Once Percy severs ties, they continue to insult him and throw mashed parsnips at him during the one family dinner Percy attends in a 2 1/2 year period. Yet Percy is the only one who apologizes for being a prat.)

* Han Solo's cousin Thrackan Sal-Solo in ''Literature/NewJediOrder'' and ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce''. He beat up Han when they were kids and generally made things hard for him. As an adult, he declared himself ruler of Corellia, started an anti-alien group,captured the Solo kids,later put out a bounty on his own family and sold out Boba Fett's daughter. That last one led to Boba going PapaWolf and aiding in his death (although Jacen actually killed him)

* Everybody in ''Literature/DiaryOfAWimpyKid'' has their moments (it's what makes it a BlackComedy), but Roderick... well, let's just say that if [[AssholeVictim his body is found in a ditch somewhere]], [[CainAndAbel it's not hard to figure who the prime suspect will be.]]

* {{God}} in ''[[http://bbs.stardestroyer.net/viewtopic.php?t=118769&highlight= Armageddon:]] TheSalvationWar''. First off, even though he closed the gates of Heaven ''1000 years ago'', the reason that He threw ALL of humanity on Earth to Satan NOW is [[spoiler: He's pissed that humans have started questioning His teachings and that they're not all constantly singing his praises. He even has a Chorus in Heaven which is forced to constantly sing his praises. He actually gets pissed when, after throwing them ALL to Satan, the Catholic Church excommunicates him and denounces him as an usurper of a one true God. When the reason that he flipped off humanity was that they were questioning his teachings in the first place, you'd think he would see that one coming.]]

*** He was even this as a child as he was part of the group who would go on to be the Death Eaters. Talented at Dark magic, he pretty was a jerk to any non-Death Eater except [[spoiler: Lily Evans, his frist friend. However, she grew sickened of what he was becoming.]]
** James Potter and Sirius Black were often this in their boyhood, though with James, mainly toward his mutual hatred toward Snape. This peaked into DudeNotFunny territory when Sirius discovered Snape had been spying on them in attempts to learn what they've been doing during certain nights (accompanying their werewolf friend, Remus Lupin during his transformations). Sirius let slip how to get past the Whomping Willow so Snape could sneak in and he ends up running into a werewolf Lupin, James was very horrified by this before saving Snape. Sirius and James outgrow this with James becoming Head Boy in his final year.

Added DiffLines:

* Fang was veering dangerously close to this territory earlier on in the ''Literature/MaximumRide'' series. He flirted blatantly with several girls other than Max over the course of the series, but when ''she'' dated someone else, of course he became [[GreenEyedEpiphany jealous]]. Not to mention the fact that when she finally complained to him about it for real, he acted as though nothing had happened and basically disregarded what she said.
