* B-ko (Biko) Daitokuji from ''Anime/ProjectAKo'', although a bit downplayed because her rivalry with SitcomArchnemesis A-ko tends to be more [[StuffBlowingUp physical]] than intellectual. She has all the hallmarks of a standard AlphaBitch (beautiful, rich, bratty, self-centered, head of the local GirlPosse she uses as flunkies) but doubles down by also being a top student with a genius-level intellect (she builds ''giant robots and advanced powersuits'' in her spare time, usually to take down A-ko).

* Kameo from VisualNovel/TrueLoveJunaiMonogatari is a RareMaleExample.

* Kameo from VisualNovel/TrueLoveJunaiMonogatari is a RareMaleExample.RareMaleExample, always bragging about his academic accoplishments. He's also a bit of a CloudCuckooLander at times, though.
* Subverted by [[StudentcouncilPresident Makoto]] [[WellDoneSonGuy Nijima]] from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'', who ''isn't'' one but is mistakenly believed to be (which includes the Protagonist and his companion Ann Takamaki). For example, the Protagonist can hear some girls gossiping about how she knew what [[SadistTeacher Kamoshida]] was doing but hid it because she's only pretending to care about the student body. (The truth is that she was ''furious'' and [[ItsAllMyFault blamed herself]] for him being unpunished for so long, but felt she didn't have the power to do anything.)

They'll be found in a show that has a private school or a large cast as the one who will fight to be the best but is somehow still popular. The natural StudentCouncilPresident but not necessarily the only one. Unlike a regular AlphaBitch she is rarely glamorous and much more likely to be a friend sooner or later like the LovableAlphaBitch.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'': Played with. Sunset Shimmer is a ShadowArchetype to Twilight Sparkle. A former student of Princess Celestia who underwent a FaceHeelTurn and sought to use her powers for evil. But she behaves more like a traditional AlphaBitch and her love of knowledge isn't as prominent until the third movie in the series (where she has undergone a HeelFaceTurn).

* ''Series/KenanAndKel'' has Janet, a smug brainy girl. is frequently at odds with the titular protagonists. One episode has her giving a brown-nosing book report that lasts for the entire class.



* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'': Libby is usually just the typical AlphaBitch cheerleader. However there's an episode where Sabrina uses her magic to turn Libby into a nerd because she believed that it would teach her a lesson in humility and kindness. This ends up backfiring when Libby takes over the Science Club and starts bullying her old friends in the cheerleading squad.

* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'': Downplayed with Libby. She's not a ditz like the typical AlphaBitch - and there are a couple of instances where she brags about getting higher grades than Sabrina. This is made even more obvious in an episode, where Libby has been turned into a nerd. Sabrina believed that it would teach her a lesson in humility and kindness, but she only used it to start bullying her old friends in the cheerleading squad.

* ''[[Franchise/SailorMoon Ami Mizuno]]'', of all people, once showed tendencies of this in the Exam Battles specials: upon discovering that a mysterious boy named Mercurius had her same scores in all tests, she started going mad and trying to understand how it was possible, and when she accidentally mistook an hostile [[MonsterOfTheWeek Genius Loci]] for him she gleefully attacked the enemy, content of having an excuse. [[DeadpanSnarker Minako]] promptly [[LampshadeHanging declared she'll stop studying for fear of being murdered by her]].

* ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'' had one in Madelyne Spaulding, a stuck-up "Little Miss Perfect" type who tried running for class president but failed to gain enough supporters to get on the ballot. Her latent abilities as a Bang Baby then manifested, which allowed her to [[MindControl control people like puppets, or "brain puppets"]], and be able [[MindProbe to read minds.]] She couldn't control Static's mind because of his electrical abilities, but she was able to enter his mind and learn his secret identity. Madelyne then used her powers to try and take over Dakota so she would definitely become student council president.
