*** Still a lot less anvilicious than most BioWare {{Role Playing Game}}s. There are a lot of petty {{Jerkass}} options, but there are also a fair number where you can commit atrocities in a sneaky way and still end up looking like a saint. For example, [[spoiler: selling a child's soul for the power of blood magic.]] And in general, what your party members don't know won't hurt them.

* The Blacksmiths of ''Webcomic/{{Godslave}}'', after losing the second ''ba'' to Edith, start to harass her daily and pick fights with her by stealing her stuff and forcing her to battle them to get it back. At some point, they take her phone and change her Instagram password before she can get it back.

* ''Film/BatmanForever'': Edward Nygma turned to evil and became the Riddler for no other reason than because Bruce Wayne, his employer and the man he admired most in the world, rejected his idea that they become partners in marketing Nygma's invention. What makes this especially petty is that Nygma made twice as much money going into business on his own, and in fact taunts Wayne about his "bad" decision afterward when Nygmatech outperforms Wayne Enterprises. But apparently all of that isn't good enough: the Riddler never forgave Wayne for failing to "understand", and decided to devote the rest of his life to humiliating and then killing him.

* ''ASongOfIceAndFire'': With the [[RoyalBrat Royal Brats]] Joffrey Baratheon and Viserys Targaryen around, it's a little hard to say who the pettiest of them all in this series is: both manage to take their excesses to extremes while having very little of substance at the heart of their Evil. Plenty of bonkers between, them, though.
** Joffrey's mother, Cersei, does definitely have her moments, thereby amply showing where her son gets it from... even if she's not ''as'' reliably proficient with the sheer mind-numbingly stupid emptiness that her little boy is. She needs [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy alcohol]] to get there; he doesn't.
** Lord Walder Frey might beat everybody hands down simply down to living up to the trope well into his 90s, while infecting the rest of his family with the bug on top of that. He's a major (and very irritating) {{Troll}} with a SmallNameBigEgo problem which pushes him into some truly petty actions. Few Freys escape it: [[HateSink poor things]].

too. Joffrey just got more power with which to get over-the-top, wastefully petty; yet, it's more than clear Viserys would have been just as much of a puppy-crosssbowing mistake on the Iron Throne had he got it.
** Joffrey's mother, Cersei, does definitely have her moments, moments of petty douchebaggery (usually aimed at Tyrion or servants), thereby amply showing where her son gets it from... even if she's not ''as'' reliably proficient with the sheer mind-numbingly stupid emptiness that her little boy is. She actually needs [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy alcohol]] to eventually get there; he doesn't.

Few Freys escape it: are escaping the consequences: [[HateSink poor poor]] [[AssholeVictim things]].

* Done in excess with the majority of the Heel roster in any fraction or franchise in fictional wrestling, just to make sure the audience knows who to boo. Almost every bad guy wrestler is an overblown SchoolyardBullyAllGrownUp, playing dirty tactics, picking on weaker or severely incapable members of the roster, or just in general finding [[IrrationalHatred any]] [[DisproportionateRetribution petty]] [[BadMoodAsAnExcuse excuse]] [[ItAmusedMe to make]] [[KickTheDog someone else's life an utter hell]]. A good example is {{Ryback}}, who went from dealing out potentially crippling injuries to guys in the ring to dumping a plate of food on some guy at the buffet table backstage and mocking him about it.

* Sleeze, the [[ComicBook/NewGods New God]] in charge of porn, is the embodiment of this trope. {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} banished Sleeze from Apokolips because he thought a god of porn was too petty to play any part in his schemes to conquer reality. It says something when ''Darkseid'' thinks you are too petty. The Lord of Apokolips usually plays this trope straight - examples include forcing his minions to murder their pets, murdering (or trying to murder) relatives of his enemies for foiling his {{Evil Scheme}}s, executing his minions for speaking out of turn, and setting free his slaves...and putting them in charge of the next batch, just so the hero can watch them become as cruel as the old slave drivers. Sleeze really does take the cake when it comes to pettiness though; he had total mental control over Superman and Big Barda, another powerful New God, and instead of forcing them to do any number of terrible atrocities against the human race, he made them star in a porno just because he can and to see poor Mister Miracle's reaction.

* ''WebComic/EerieCuties'': This applies to [[BlondesAreEvil Melissa]] whenever she's in [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor "Heel"-mode.]] During which, she'll lash out at anyone who gets on her bad side, [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/even_for_you! even if it's unprovoked.]] Simply ''[[TemptingFate looking]]'' [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/you_had_that_look at her the wrong way]] is enough to make her cast a spell on whoever did it. She even cast a spell on Layla [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/art_scholarship_-_interlude_(guest_strip)_2_of_4 to take away her boobs]], just 'cuz ''[[DisproportionateRetribution she said]]'' Melissa couldn't compete with her figure.

* Sephiroth's deeds in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' run the gamut between: torching a town of innocent civilians; [[MindControl manipulating]] Cloud into obtaining an artefact of unspeakable black magic and delivering it to him; summoning a Meteor to kill all life on the Planet other than himself; killing the woman attempting to stop him; {{Gaslighting}} various characters, especially Cloud, apparently more out of amusement than because it helps his plan; and throwing a Materia at Cloud like a rock before flying off over Cloud's head with his mouth open.
