* ''WesternAnimation/AllenGregory'': The titular Allen is heavy on this. He displays narcissism in spades, disregards his sister's emotions and well being, puts his needs and wants ahead of others, and completely disrespects his father's life partner for no apparent reason. Allen is only a 7 year old boy! It also doesn't help that Allen's father displays the exact same behavior to his life partner and his daughter. Because he is the main protagonist, this lead to DesignatedHero.

* A good amount of ''Metalocalypse'' characters are well, jerkasses. One of the worse is the family of Pickles. They prefer his deadbeat con-artist older son over their more successful(as in fixing the economy successful) son. They almost never got any comeuppance, well, except for when Pickles told Molly(his mother) to go fuck herself.



** Mr. Krabs is an even bigger jerkass than Spongebob. He's wrecked Spongebob's house, eaten him when he was shipped back home after a failed attempt to infiltrate Pearl's slumber party, tried to tear a guy's arm off over a ''penny'', stole a $1.25 secret ingredient and tried to frame Spongebob for it, and sold Spongebob's soul to the Flying Dutchman for 62 cents after Spongebob stood up for him. Even ''[[EvenEvilHasStandards Squidward]]'', who hates Spongebob enough to let it happen, called him out on the last one, not believing that Mr. Krabs could be ''THAT'' big of a jerkass, and Krabs himself realizes he went too far there and throws the money back. It only gets worse as the seasons go on where Krabs does anything in his power to get money even if it involves causing extreme misfortune for others (The Krabby Kronicle and The Krusty Sponge are prime examples of this) and let's not even get started on what [[KnightTemplar Krabs does to Plankton in the later seasons]]. For the most part, the callousness of Mr Krabs's and everyone else's character (everyone is a jerkass at times) is a case of DependingOnTheWriter; they can shift back to their more likable early characterizations at times, though when they play this trope, they play it ''very straight''.

How worse you ask? One time, he fired Spongebob because he would save 5 cents, yes, canning his best employee to save 5 cents [[SarcasmMode is a great idea.]]

* Like the live-action films, ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' gives some rather mean characters.
** The Season 1 episode, ''Trespass'', gives us Chairman Chi Cho, the greedy chairman of Pantora who doesn't like being reasonable with Talz, [[WellIntentionedExtremist considering the moon the talz live on Pantoran territory]], and declares war on them and claims it a Pantoran exclusive internal affair, not allowing Obi-Wan Kenobi to participate in the negotiations.
-->"This is now an internal affair of Pantora!"
** Tarkin was still a {{Jerkass}} in the ''Clone Wars'' series as well.
** Jedi General Pong Krell in the Umbarra Arc in Season Four. [[spoiler: It turns out his jerk personallity was intentional, as he was planning to join the Count Dooku and the CIS after sabotaging the Republic effort on Umbarra]].
** [[spoiler: [[FaceHeelTurn Barriss Offee]]]] turns into one in the Season Five finale episodes, where she bombed the Jedi Temple and framed her best friend, Ahsoka Tano for murdering her accomplice, Letta Turmond.

** Sunset Shimmer from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' and its sequels started out as this. She was originally prideful, arrogant, and acted stuck up and rude towards her peers. However, thanks to CharacterDevelopment, she takes a level in Kindness and becomes more of a NiceGirl by Rainbow Rocks, though she retains a bit of an edge thanks to her short temper.

** And the biggest one of them all is Twister's older brother Lars, who not only picks on Twister, but is also just as much of a Competition Freak as Otto. Lars' gang could count as well.

* Lars and (sometimes) Reggie from ''WesternAnimation/RocketPower''. Otto himself, while not being as much of a {{Jerkass}} as Lars, is still an arrogant, obnoxious prick who puts others inferior to him down in many occasions.

**
Otto Rocket. He's arrogant, cocky, and so full of himself. He loves to brag about his skills and puts down anyone who is inferior to them. And when he's on the inferior side himself, he throws a hissy fit and refuses to admit that someone is better than him at something.
** Reggie,
while nowhere near Otto's level of jerkassness, has her moments where she can be just as insufferable.
** Merv Stimpleton is another example of this, seeing as how ill-tempered he is during the four friends' shenanigans and cuts them and Ray very little slack.

** And let's not forget Rocko's cruel boss Mr. Smitty, who once made Rocko stay up all night to fix a minor flaw on a comic.

** Leo and Inez Wong. Not only are they greedy, and self-centered ranch/casino owners who frequently mistreat the native Martians who have to work for them. Leo himself is one of the villains for the movie "Into the wild Green Yonder" where he tries to wipe out ''12% of the milky way'' for a ''miniature golf course''.

Not to mention their [[AbusiveParents treatment of Amy]], which only starts with them always being happy to remind her how tubby she used to be just to make her miserable. Leo himself is one of the villains for the movie "Into the wild Green Yonder" where he tries to wipe out ''12% of the milky way'' for a ''miniature golf course''.

** [[BigBad Bill Cipher]] is without question the biggest Jerkass in the show. Not only is he a [[AxCrazy depraved, sadistic psychopath]], he often cracks [[EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor dark jokes, often at the expense of others]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheMrMenShow'': Most of the negative personality trait characters tend to be this, but the [[MeaningfulName appropriately-named]] [[FrenchJerk Mr. Rude]] stands out the most.
