* 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.

* 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 [[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.

* In ''WhoseLineIsItAnyway'', one game of "Let's Make a Date" has Colin getting the role of one who's just trying to take a bath in peace. Strangely, the guys' impression of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKKtpH3n19c "World's Worst" Neighbor]] skip this trope completely.

* Mrs. Steve in Series/PeeWeesPlayhouse, although she was really more of a NosyNeighbor.
* Don Ramón in Series/ElChavoDelOcho, although it's mainly the title character that gets this from him. Doña Florinda has her moments as well, but Doña Clotilde is perhaps the straightest example. The younger characters keep thinking she's a "bruja" ("witch) for a reason...

* Spiderus on the children's show ''MissSpidersSunnyPatchFriends''. A particularly cranky neighbor, he will often threaten to ''eat'' the children who annoy him.

* Gaylord Robinson and his wife Margaret are examples in ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball''. Similarly to SpongeBob's relationship with Squidward, Gumball and Darwin love and idolize their neighbor and the feelings are not mutual.
