* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'':
** This is a show FILLED with jerks. Their levels of jerkassery range from "completely evil jerkass" to "sympathetic JerkassWoobie." The most obvious in the former category are Magic Man, Xergiok, and the Tree Witch. Magic Man inflicts BodyHorror galore on innocent people and turns a bird inside-out, Xergiok spends most of his time SPANKING his subjects, and the Tree Witch actually tries to suck the protagonist Jake into her ass. (MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext). The Ice King and Lemongrab are very sympathetic characters thanks to their mental/emotional problems, but they're still jerks. The Ice King is senile and actually a decent guy, but seriously; he NEEDS to stop kidnapping princesses. That's just impolite. And Lemongrab isn't evil--just maladjusted, but he doesn't empathize with people easily, and he sends everybody to the dungeon for a million years.

** [[BetaBitch Miranda]]. While her friend [[SpoiledSweet Courtney]] genuinely means well, Miranda goes out of her way to lure the protagonist and her friends into embarrassing, horrible situations, and to steal the protagonist's love interests for herself seemingly just to spite her.

** Trixie initially was a jerk flank during 'Boast Busters' and the majority of 'Magic Duel'. An egotistical, showboating narcissist, she was the ShadowArchetype of [[HumbleHero Twilight Sparkle,]] [[SpoiledSweet Rarity,]] and [[LovableJock Rainbow]] [[JerkWithAHeartofGold Dash.]] However, Magic Duel's epilogue showed a redeemed Trixie almost renouncing her former ways. Then she promptly referred to herself as "The Great and Apologetic Trixie", showing she's still got Jerkass tendencies.

** The Author/[[spoiler: Stan's brother]] is revealed to be a pretty big jerk; he allows [[spoiler: his brother to be disowned for accidentally ruining his project, even though it was an accident and may not have been his fault at all. He doesn't contact him again for another ten years. When he comes, Stanley assumes he called for him in order to set up a reconciliation, but all he wants is to make Stanley take care of a menial task for him, even wording the request in such a way so as to raise his hopes and then send them crashing back down. Finally, when Stanley points out it would be much easier to simply burn the journal he flips out because it contains his research even though he doesn't want anyone to ever see it anyway. That's the last straw, starting a fight that gets him accidentally sent to another dimension. When Stanley devotes the next thirty years of his life to getting his brother back, he doesn't even get a thank you for his efforts. Instead, Stanford tells him he has until the end of summer to get off his property. Stanley agrees on the condition that Stanford keep away from the twins, because he doesn't want them in danger since they're the only family he has left.]]

Many of his most dickish moments are due to PoorCommunicationKills and [[spoiler:thirty years dimension-hopping]] basically destroyed his social skills. Not to mention that when he comes back he has legitimate concerns that TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt is coming. He later shows a soft side towards Dipper and really cares for him. The end picture is a flawed individual with a good heart, left bitter by the circumstances of his life.

** Flats the Flounder from the episode "The Bully" is hellbent on "kicking Spongebob's butt", even after Spongebob saves his life via CPR and takes him to the hospital after an accident. He seems to have quite the reputation among the people that know him, as even his father is afraid of his threats.

* ''Bubsy'': In the animated pilot episode based off of the video game series, the title character is an arrogant, obnoxious jerk who nearly brings about the end of the world through his carelessness. In the games, he is merely a wisecracking do-gooder.

** Brian. Much like Peter and Lois, he became one through Flanderization. He has an ego the size of Texas, bashes everything that does not agree with him, told Meg that there is no God because she does not have a good life, and is a KnowNothingKnowItAll that makes everybody that seems to have a lower IQ look like idiots. Quagmire's ReasonYouSuckSpeech is a perfect description of how his character gradually degenerated:

** Quagmire himself. He sound like a hypocrite given that he's done far worse things than Brian ever has, most of the time he's a heartless sex hound who will do anything to take advantage of almost any woman and he's abandoned who knows how many kids. Also sometimes his own hatred for Brian crosses over into DisproportionateRetribution, like when he beat up Brian for sleeping with his transgender father (something which Brian was completely unaware of).
