This trope does ''not'' apply if the story takes place in France and the majority of the cast is French. An exception does apply if only the jerks speak with a French accent.

* Episode "Princess Problems" of the ''WesternAnimation/GummiBears'' has a French-accent King and his daughter visiting King Gregor's castle. The French princess is a mean spoiled brat.

* Jean-Paul Leveque from WCW fit this in the mid-90's. He was little more than a mid-carder until he went to the WWF and became pompous blue-blood [[Wrestling/TripleH Hunter Hearst Helmsley]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' has Widowmaker, who while [[EveryoneLooksSexierIfFrench sexy]], is a cold-blooded assassin who takes pleasure in killing and is one of the antagonists in the game serving terrorist organization [[NebulousEvilOrganization Talon]]. Not to mention the fact that she acts like a complete {{Jerkass}} to everyone else, constantly taunting her enemies. In an interesting twist however, she ''did not choose'' to be like this. She was once known as Amélie Lacroix, a completely innocent NiceGirl who did nothing wrong of her accord. However, she was kidnapped by said organization and was turned into Widowmaker as she is known today, through intense [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashing and neural reconditioning]].

She's also the only French in the cast (aside of her dead husband Gerard)

* Inverted in the [[ComicBook/FantasticFour the Thing's]] ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' arc. Since the Marvel Civil War seems to involve everyone Ben knows in the U.S. turning into a colossal jerk and he doesn't want to have to pick sides between his friends, he travels to France. The French super-heroes he meets are all a little eccentric, but charmingly nice people, in contrast to how things have gotten back in the States.

* Sophie Montgomery and her mother Jeanne in ''Manga/{{Lady}}''. [[spoiler:Ultimately subverted with Sophie, who shows a quite more sympathetic side as it's shown that Jeanne manipulates and harrasses her in hopes to get her to inherit her English grandma's fortune, threatening Sophie with abandoning her in France if she fails. Meanwhile, [[WelldoneSonGuy Sophie just wants to be loved by her mom]].]]

* ''PhantasyStarPortable 2'' gives us Chelsea, the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot bubbly "French" robot secretary merc]], who, in an aversion, is the nicest character on the space station your character is assigned to.

* In ''Literature/TheTraitorSonCycle'', the supporting villains in the first three books are overwhelmingly the Galles - French FantasyCounterpartCulture. With the exception of [[TokenGoodTeammate Comte D'Eau]], they're self-righteous, misogynistic, anti-magical and HolierThanThous assholes who think they can do whatever they want with the peasantry, and their king isn't much better. This being said, it's outright stated that the ones we see in the story have been [[ReassignedToAntarctica Reassigned To Alba]] by their more reasonable fellows.
