*** His rage was even justifiable in the first movie. Peter Parker (unintentionally) threw a tray of food at him. Because he was obvious about the fact he's walking away because of the incident (he didn't even bother to at least cut the spider strings that caused the accident to occur), its only common sense Flash targeted him to pent his rage out. If a viewer watches the whole scene without knowing the pretext that Peter's discovering his new ability, it flat out comes as Peter trying to do a bullying stunt to piss Flash off but gets caught int he act).

* Scowler from ''Series/WalkingWithDinosaurs: The Movie''. He often picks on his younger brother Patchi because of their size differences. But when he gets older and becomes the leader of the herd, he gets worse.

** More lately, he became an EnsembleDarkHorse and gets to be the ''4th'' Venom, and he's touted as a through and through ''superhero'', in spite of his jock past and the symbiote's usual villain status, meaning that he manages to make CharacterDevelopment stick.

* [[PreppyName Bradley Uppercrust III]] from ''WesternAnimation/AnExtremelyGoofyMovie'' who decided to offer Max to be on his extreme sports team while passive-aggressively insulting {{Acrofatic}} PJ and BunnyEarsLawyer Bobby for vague and likely shallow reasons. Cue the TrueCompanions making him into their PrivilegedRival. Then later he drafts Max's own father, Goofy, to the team, and is later revealed to be a dirty cheater. [[spoiler: By the end of the movie he has attempted to severely injure or kill no fewer than two people in the name of winning in addition to callously leaving his own right-hand man to die.]]

* Mike from ''Series/{{Community}}'' episode [[Recap/CommunityS1E12ComparativeReligion Comparative Religion]].
** That said, Troy Barnes exists to avert this trope. Sure, he might be a little insensative sometimes, but he's probably the sweetest person on the show, and is TheHeart of the group. Case in point? He's more turned on by girls in pajamas than lingerie because he just wants to know they're comfortable.

This type of character has a very, ''very'' slim chance to survive in a SlasherMovie, but is always an AssholeVictim in such flicks.
