The SpearCounterpart to the AlphaBitch, the Jerk Jock is the Chief Bully who dominates the school/college environment through physical violence and threats of brutal retaliation. A [[{{Jerkass}} boorish, obnoxious, spiteful asshole]] with an [[EntitledBastard out-of-control sense of entitlement]], he spends his time beating people up, getting drunk and destroying property; and in darker works, he may also be an incorrigible rapist. Just as the Alpha Bitch has a GirlPosse, the Jerk Jock has the Cool Crowd, a crowd of hangers-on who bow to his every whim and help him victimize whomever he decides to pick on. And he inevitably decides that Our Heroes are his favorite targets. His rare literal DistaffCounterpart (known as the Jock ''Bitch'') exists mostly as a curiosity, mostly because it would take an unusually tall girl to play the part (''at least'' six feet or taller).

part.



Unlike the AlphaBitch who almost always gets what's coming to her, the Jerk Jock is a frequent KarmaHoudini in fiction. But if the heroes try to get revenge on him by alternative means, this will often result in an {{Anvilicious}} FamilyUnfriendlyAesop about "not stooping to his level". If the hero does manage to take revenge, it will be glorious and extravagant to such a brutal degree that one wonders if [[WriterOnBoard the writers are working through issues from their own childhood]]. In other cases, when Karma eventually comes for him, we'll see the Jerk Jock all grown-up, probably either a JadedWashout, dreaming about his glory days, or a failed corporate thug who ended up in jail.

* [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]]. Even as a face, he was the cool slick athlete that made fun of everybody, his interactions with the likes of Wrestling/MichaelCole and Coach were especially telling; the crowd still went nuts over him. Not to mention that it was the crowd-pleasing charismatic awesomeness with which he did this that convinced WWE to turn him face.

* The Stuntman from the second season of TheGuild is not so much a Jerk Jock as an Oblivious Jock, as he's really only an asshole to Codex occasionally because he doesn't understand what's going on with her.
* There are several examples in the WhateleyUniverse, but Kodiak at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] might be the best, even if he isn't in sports. He's been an Alpha for years, he cut a swath through the hot girls of the school, he has a history of picking on people, and he has now taken over the Alphas. On the other hand, he already got his karmic payback, it turns out he's smart, he has now fallen for a girl who's [[BeautifulAllAlong a nerd]], and he seems to be trying to make all the Alphas behave. But it's an ongoing story, so who knows?

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan''. Just like in the original comics, Flash Tompson is a star high school football player and a typical jock and bully who mercilessly bullies his nerdy classmate Peter Parker but greatly admires the costumed superhero Spider-Man, an irony in which the superhero takes some gratification.This version of flash continues to bully his nerdy classmate Peter Parker, even when Peter already has already been bitten by the radioactive spider and Flash is always trying to outsmart Parker but usually fails. In the series, he dates Liz Allan until they break up, seemingly due to Liz developing a crush on Peter and also great admirer of the hero Spider-Man. in which Peter's aunt has had a heart attack. Some of the kids at school express their sympathies to Peter (who at the time is being manipulated by the black suit). Peter tells them that their sympathy won't pay the medical bills and that they can go to hell. Flash later calls him out on this, since some of those people were ''his'' friends. Still, even though beating Flash up would be somewhat justified (grief over his aunt, plus long history of being bullied should be enough to make anyone snap), this comment allows to Peter to wise up and get rid of the black suit. He later goes to thank Flash who in return, is quite polite (well, for Flash anyway).
