* Bill Cipher from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' may be considered one. Albeit an arguably darker take on the trope. WordOfGod is that he's "A Trickster [[{{Jerkass}} jerk]]."

"A Trickster trickster [[{{Jerkass}} jerk]]."jerk]]" according to WordOfGod, Bill has the voice, the look and the mannerisms of a Gazoo, but even at his best he is creepier than Discord (above) '''at his worst'''. Right off the bat, [[EstablishingCharacterMoment one of the first things we see him do]] is rip all the teeth out of a deer's mouth, and he gets '''worse''' as the series progresses. By the finale, [[spoiler:where he flat-out invades our dimension,]] he's more ''ComicBooks/EmperorJoker'' than GreatGazoo.

* Discord, the spirit of Chaos and Disharmony, opening baddie of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'''s second season, zigzags this trope like no tomorrow. A RealityWarper, Trickster Villain, he uses his powers to screw with the mane cast. He seems at first like he'll be a classic example, dancing inside stained glass windows and summoning chocolate rain, but when he starts using MindRape and MoreThanMindControl to turn Twilight's friends against her, [[SubvertedTrope he turns out to be a fair bit nastier than is the norm for this type]]. By Season 3, [[HeelFaceTurn he has reformed]], but his mischievous nature goes untamed, making him a straight example - he's still a JerkAss but in a far more lighthearted way, and his antics - [[TricksterMentor intentionally or not]] - end up teaching the main characters valuable lessons. [[FaceHeelTurn Then he temporarily goes back to being evil]] when he's manipulated by [[BigBad Tirek]], who betrays him once he [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness outlives his usefulness]], so he [[HeelFaceTurn reforms]] '''[[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor again]]''' and starts playing the trope straight once more.

** [[MadGod Sheogorath]], the Daedric prince of madness. His idea of divine wrath upon a village in [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Cyrodiil]] that stole one of his sacred relics is to ''make it rain flaming dogs''.

** Maui of ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' is explicitly stated to be a trickster god, and his EstablishingCharacterMoment is his IAmGreatSong; He pulls the titular character into a DisneyAcidSequence to distract her from the fact that he's stealing her raft and leaving her trapped on the FarSideIsland he was stuck on.

Added DiffLines:

* The end of ''[[VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}} Sunrider Liberation Day]]'' reveals [[spoiler:Claude Trilleo]] to be this. The post-game [RE]turn scenario elaborates on it: as [[spoiler:a time traveller and a goddess]], [[spoiler:Claude]] is effectively omnipotent and could end the conflict with a snap of her fingers. Yet she doesn’t, partly because [[GodsHandsAreTied using too much of her power could wipe out all of existence]] by causing a RealityBreakingParadox, partly because [[spoiler:she’s secretly been working with the villains for most of the series until their goals stopped aligning with her own]], but mostly because it amuses (and arouses) her to watch Kayto Shields try and overcome the hardships placed before him through his own merits. Because of this, she limits herself to messing with the Sunrider’s crew in more mundane ways and provides Kayto with very minimal assistance during the [RE]turn scenario[[note]](which only happened because she thought it would be interesting to send Kayto [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong back in time and watch him try to prevent]] [[spoiler:the Liberation Day massacre]])[[/note]].

* Trelane, in the [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries ST:TOS]] episode "The Squire of Gothos" is so like Q the expanded novels retconned him into a member of their species. At the time he was revealed (at the end of the episode) as being a child of parents with similar omnipotence, who turn up to scold him accordingly.

%%* * ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicSchoolBus'' - Ms. Frizzle. Who is Frizzle qualifies as a human example, using the namesake bus to turn her class into bees, fly into outer space, travel through time, or shrink to the size of human cells. She's also InexplicablyAwesome.a wholly benevolent version, since she does it all to [[MundaneUtility teach her science class]], and while there are a few close calls, the kids always get out of it perfectly safe.
