* ''Film/MeanGirls'': Regina George acts like a stereotypical AlphaBitch for nearly the entire film, but it's revealed by BetaBitch, [[GossipyHens Gretchen Wieners,]] that Regina's got some family issues at home [[SexlessMarriage (such as her parents having marital problems to the point of sleeping in separate beds).]] Also, near the end, Regina (despite obviously getting kicks out of being mean to others) seems genuinely surprised and hurt upon learning [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating how much her schoolmates (and even her teachers)]] [[{{Understatement}} dislike her]].

Added DiffLines:

* [[FallenHero Taiga Hanaya]] [[note]] His name spells ''big ego'' by the way of possible kanji interpretation. [[/note]] of ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' is smug, careless jerk with [[BrokenAce matching skills]] to boot. Later events offer a peek in his real self, broken man who ''wants'' to be hated because it makes things easier for him and believes that this is the only way he can earn redemption. Simply saying he is messed would be a major understatement.

Added DiffLines:

* Louis from ''Manga/{{Beastars}}''. There is much, much more to him than simply being the lead actor in school.

* Many ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' fics interpret [[TheScrappy Weiss]] as this, if they don't change her [[RichBitch character]] entirely. Weiss is rather petty and cruel in canon, so some changes from this outline are necessary to make her a sympathetic character.



* In quite a number of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' fanfics, Zuko is portrayed as his usual arrogant self, [[{{AlternateCharacterInterpretation}} but deep inside is actually desperate to regain his title as Crown Prince to protect]] ''the Fire Nation'' from the rule of his ruthless younger sister, Azula.



%% * Almost every episode of ''Series/HomeImprovement''.

Added DiffLines:

* Anomen Delryn in ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII'' is a [[IWantToBeARealMan wannabe paladin]] who is [[{{Jerkass}} arrogant]], [[KnightTemplar self-righteous]], and [[MilesGloriosus constantly bragging about impossible battles he probably never fought]]. Other members of the party ([[TheScrappy and many players]]) tend to find him annoying. However, his sidequest reveals that [[MissingMom his mom is gone]] and his dad is [[AbusiveParents a terrible person]], and that Anomen's been struggling to simultaneously escape his father's influence and [[WellDoneSonGuy earn his respect]]. This sidequest is the main driver of Anomen's later CharacterDevelopment, which can take one of two directions.

* ''Film/MeanGirls'': Regina George acts like a stereotypical AlphaBitch for nearly the entire film, but it's revealed by [[GossipyHens gossip queen]]-[[BetaBitch Gretchen Wieners]] that she's got some pretty serious family issues at home (such as her parents having marital problems to the point of [[SexlessMarriage sleeping in separate beds]]). Also, near the end of the film, Regina (despite obviously getting kicks out of being mean to others) seemed genuinely shocked and hurt upon finally realizing [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating just how much her schoolmates (and even some of her teachers)]] [[{{Understatement}} dislike her]].

* ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'': Emil is introduced having a general ItsAllAboutMe attitude and plenty of remnants of being a spoiled rich kid. However, he panics when he realizes he gave people a bad first impression and, once he remembers other people exist, he can be quite caring. For instance, when his strange new crewmate steals the meat out of his sandwich while he's distracted by something else, Emil's response is to go get more food for ''both'' of them. He later tries to befriend the new crewmate in question, despite the presence of a LanguageBarrier in addition to the weirndess in character. The guy's own cousin and CloudcuckoolandersMinder settled for mostly bossing him around over the years.
