Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheBradyBunch'': In the Season 3 episode "My Sister Benedict Arnold," Greg views classmate Warren Mullaney as one of these -- a smooth-talking, slick-acting con artist who lies, cheats and uses other SocialEngineering tricks to get his way and satisfy his goals any way possible, even if by outright cheating ... this after Greg loses (at least) a class election and a spot on the first-string basketball team to Warren.

* ''Series/VeronicaMars'' is a more organized version of this trope, with her father's backing (such as when he finds her in the principal's closet, and rather than ratting her out, says, "Yep. That's mine", referring to his coat). References ''ParkerLewisCantLose'' and his "step into my offices" by frequently having people at her school "ambush" her in the bathroom with "I need you to help me."

* Jimmy Hopkins from ''Videogame/{{Bully}}'' may be a surly punk. But underneath his delinquent attitude he wants the cliques of the school to stop fighting and for everyone to stop bothering him. He succeeds eventually and has them all eating out of his hand, until it all goes to rats again.

As it turns out, the only guy who is better at getting the entire school to eat out of his hand has to be a manipulative prick and an unstable psychopath to do so.]]
