* Anomen, the [[TheScrappy insufferable]] Priest of Helm from the second ''[[BaldursGate Baldur's Gate]]'' game. A stick up the ass is only to be expected, of course, but the would-be paladin goes beyond that, complaining that quests such as hunting down kidnappers who bury people alive or returning a poisoned man to his friends to be cured is a waste of time ("He's probably just drunk"). He even explicitly claims to be the [[OnlySaneMan only competent member of the party]]. He doesn't even get marks for consistency: when you find a drow about to become the victim of vigilante justice, despite having committed no crime, he [[FantasticRacism dismisses it as her just desserts]] for being part of an [[AlwaysChaoticEvil evil race]]. But if you save her, he says he doesn't care whether or not she joins the party--apparently because he thinks she's hot. All this is made even worse by the fact that, in an unmodded game, he is the only romance option available to a female protagonist.

** Waluigi is probably some of the greatest examples in videogames. He is supremely awful and takes every opportunity to demonstrate it openly. He makes his entire life purpose to torment others and cause chaos and mischief. He takes glee in even the most petty acts of malice. Wether it is making a Fly Guy get dizzy or hypnotizing the world into chausing chaos, he will do whatever it takes to be the best and make everyone miserable. And why ? Because he hates pretty much everything and everyone, but especially Luigi, almost to the point of obsession.

*** Gangrel, the king of Plegia and the main baddie of the first 11 chapters. [[spoiler: When Emmeryn commits suicide to prevent Chrom from giving Gangrel the Shield of Seals for her safety, he laughs gleefully at that and at Chrom and Lissa's saddness at this event (which is rather in poor taste)]]. He is in fact considered to be the biggest jerk in the game.

* In ''VideoGame/EternalSonata'', the StandardizedLeader avatar character Allegretto is noted for this in a game where none of the other playable characters are really noted for this type of behavior. Examples include poking fun at his younger companion, Beat, and running off and sticking his fellow party members with a job to do while he fetches another party member, a cute girl. The game's PlayStation3 UpdatedRerelease goes a long way towards making him more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold by omitting at least one scene in which he displays some heavily jerkass behavior and heavily altering others or adding additional material to portray him in a more favorable light.

* Sumire Kanzaki, the TeamPrimaDonna and RichBitch of Flower Division from SakuraWars. As the series progresses, she becomes more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, but still is initially a jerk.

** By ''New Leaf'', Snooty villagers have toned down to just being a bit high maintenance. A few [=NPC=] characters are full blown jerkasses though, including Mr.Resetti (who berates the player if he or she so happens to reset the game), Gracie (who will look down on the player for not having her sense of fashion), Pave (who constantly demands feathers and berates the player for not dancing).

** Just to illustrate how much of TheScrappy Anomen is, the LetsPlay of ''Baldur's Gate II'' saw him ejected out of the party... By being thrown into a dimensional rift to ''the elemental plane of [[BeeBeeGun Bees]]''.

* Shinji Matou from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' is a thoroughly unlikeable little weasel who treats others like dirt and acts as though the world is solely there for his own convenience. And this is ''before'' you find out what an utter, irredeemable bastard he really is. Gilgamesh is just as selfish and amoral, but unlike Shinji, he actually has the power to back it up. [[spoiler:It is revealed throughout the various points of the game, particularly in the Heaven's Feel path, that Shinji frequently ''raped'' Sakura, used a Command Seal in order to do the exact same thing to Rider, and is heavily insinuated to have also raped Mitsuzuri before having Rider drain her energy]]. The guy is a demented sicko, well beyond the levels of your common {{Jerkass}}.
