* The short sci-fi story [[http://www.gutenberg.org/files/31663/31663-h/31663-h.htm "The Six Fingers of Time"]] by Creator/RALafferty is a borderline example: TheProtagonist isn't exactly invisible, but can move sixty times faster than other people, to the same effect. He uses his skill for all kinds of pranks, including the creepy one of kissing and fondling a girl he likes.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'': [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick once bought invisible paint and made themselves invisible so that they could scare everybody else in Bikini Bottom.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' cartoon "The Invisible Mouse", Jerry dipped himself in invisible ink and would then continue to torment Tom. But then again, [[StatusQuoIsGod what else is new]]? This plot was used twice more, in "The Vanishing Duck" and "Of Feline Bondage".

* Both words in this Trope (along with "pervert") describe Absalom from ''Manga/OnePiece'', along with the Trope itself. He uses his power to [[spoiler:''molest'' Nami while she's ''in a bathhouse'']], and it's stated he does this ''a lot''. Sanji is upset about that, though [[spoiler:he also wanted that power, [[ChivalrousPervert but only]] to ogle women.]]

%%* The backstage thief in ''Anime/TigerAndBunny''.



* ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'': Downplayed with Charlie Brown in ''It's Magic, Charlie Brown''. After being turned invisible, he doesn't like it all, feeling like a "lost soul" and constantly falling over because he can't see his feet. ''However'', while he never truly becomes a "jerk", he ''does'' manage [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome to sneak up on Lucy and kick the football]] once.

* Creator/HGWells' ''Literature/TheInvisibleMan'' deconstructs this trope showing us the real implications of invisibility and how they could affect an individual. To cite JorgeLuisBorges "A postulation of reality" the invisible man...

** It' also slightly subverted: consigning he was willing to experiment on yowling cats and despised his landowner, Griffin was likely a prick from the start.

* [[AxCrazy Griffin]] from ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' is introduced raping a bunch of boarding-school girls, and he later murders several people for arbitrary reasons. The only difference between this Griffin and the Griffin from the original novel is that Moore made explicit what Wells could only get away with heavily implying.

* The film adaptation of ''Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', where the new Invisible Man is a thief who used his invisibility to steal and molest women. He's the most obvious suspect as TheMole, and is shown spying on the other members of the League. However, he turns out that he was spying to learn who the real mole is. He also has his moments of heroism toward the end of the film.
