* Eikichi Mishina of ''VideoGame/Persona2InnocentSin'' is described by the game as a narcissist at every opportunity. He's brash, cocky and violent, and thinks he's the hottest, most talented, coolest guy at Kusagayama High School, which he rules with an iron fist as its Death Boss. In the Club Zodiac dungeon, we start to see why Eikichi is this way: he used to be bullied relentlessly for being a fat, clumsy crybaby. He decided to change his life and become the guy in charge, so that he could ''stop'' bullying like that at his school (though he admits that part of it was because he liked being on the top). As it turns out, he's actually a very caring person, especially towards his LoveInterest Miyabi... though it doesn't stop him from being TheFightingNarcissist for the rest of the game.

* ''Film/MeanGirls'': Regina George acts like a stereotypical AlphaBitch for nearly the entire film, but it's revealed by [[BetaBitch Gretchen]] [[GossipyHens 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 of the movie, Regina (despite obviously getting kicks out of being mean to others) seems genuinely surprised and hurt upon learning [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating just how much her schoolmates (and even her teachers)]] [[{{Understatement}} dislike her]].

* [[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.

* 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.
