* WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck also sometimes has troubles with a CrankyNeighbor, Jones, though Donald can be just as cranky as him. This also serves the inspiration for one of Donald's [[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts shorts]], "The New Neighbor", in which Donald and the neighbor in question, {{Pete}}, become quite cranky toward one another. This short takes this trope UpToEleven, in fact, as they engage in all-out war with each other.

* Mr. Curry in the ''Literature/{{Paddington}}'' franchise. Apparently, the whole neighborhood loathes him as a cranky freeloader, to say nothing of yelling at a cute little bear who never means harm.

* Squidward on ''WesternAnimation/{{SpongeBob SquarePants}}'' is the quintessential cranky neighbor, to the point that this trope might as well be called "The Squidward".

His intense dislike of Spongebob and Patrick (but ''especially'' Spongebob) and his desire to the point move as far away from them as possible are iconic enough that this trope might as well be called "The Squidward".

* Along the same lines, Pete on ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'' is a very antagonistic cranky neighbor to {{Goofy}}, though a lot of his problems would be solved if he just didn't insist on involving Goofy in his schemes.

* In ''VideoGame/ShowByRock'', it's discussed that Takeppar started out this way to his bandmates, having given Fujiraid a hard time because he mistook him for the paper girl and chased Takubaning out of his apartment by complaining until he left. He's warmed up to everyone a bit since then, but he hasn't lost his crankiness.

Cranky Neighbor - Not to be confused with NosyNeighbor, though the two tropes can overlap. This neighbor is never happy, and usually acts as an antagonist to the neighbors sharing the block with them, particularly the main characters. The cranky neighbor character is usually an [[GrumpyOldMan old man]], such as Mr Wilson on ''[[ComicStrip/DennisTheMenaceUS Dennis the Menace]]''. Some cranky neighbors want simply to be left alone, while others take a more aggressive role in making the others who live around them miserable. Cranky Neighbors often do not recognize their own crankiness or choose to [[ForTheEvulz indulge in it anyway]], if they do.

Frequently combines with GrumpyOldMan. See Also: TheComicallySerious, RightThroughTheWall.
