** It is also mentioned that these types played an important role in supervillain [[EmperorScientist Gizmatic]]'s backstory, including two who put both him and Dr. DNA in the hospital for a month; this event led to the creation of [[TheDogBiteBack the Order of The Worn Wrench]]. It was also the cause of his rivalry with the third Champion, who apparently was not such a nice guy before he took up the Champion Force.

** Rainbow Dash herself is a [[JerkWithAHeartofGold mixture]] of a Jerk Jock and a LovableJock. She does have characteristics of the typical Jerk Jock, such as arrogance and an obnoxious attitude, but her worst traits intersect with her [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold more altruistic traits,]] such as her UndyingLoyalty towards Equestria and her [[TrueCompanions friends,]] her [[BullyHunter protection of Fluttershy]] against the real Jerk Jocks in The Cutie Mark Chronicles, calling out her old friend Gilda in "Griffon the Brush-off", and the fact that while she is [[BrutalHonesty bluntly honest,]] she's never gone out of her way to intentionally harm anyone, unlike [[BitchInSheepsClothing Gilda]], for example. Underneath her rough exterior, it's not hard to find an obnoxious, but kind-hearted well-meaning pony.

Underneath her rough exterior, it's not hard to find an obnoxious, but kind-hearted well-meaning pony. She is more of a aversion in later episodes especially getting an interest in books, defending and trying to cheer Fluttershy, and having genuinely soft moments especially when around children like [[MoralityPet Scootaloo]] who is also a LovableJock.

** Speaking of the Wonderbolts, they too can be Jerk Jocks at times. Spitfire and Fleetfoot especially in the episodes Rainbow Falls, and especially Newbie Dash where they abandon their fallen teammate Soarin, and in the latter episode, haze Rainbow Dash with a name her childhood bullies came up with, even Soarin joined in. However, they all were given embarrassing nicknames as a part of their job to motivate themselves. While they have moments of good judgment and altruism like Rainbow Dash, especially Soarin in "Rarity Investigates!" Spitfire loves to act like a DrillSergeantNasty to her fellow Wonderbolts and cadets at the academy. But then it's revealed in Friends Forever 11, she doesn't know how to teach and order ponies any other way, and that her DrillSergeantNasty attitude is because of being born into her Wonderbolt career.

In every school, there's a Jerk Jock. See that [[TheBigGuy tall]], hunky and vulgar {{blond|GuysAreEvil}} guy in the football letterman jacket [[TheBully picking on]] the {{nerd}} over there? What's his name, Dick? Bill? Kyle? One of those? That's him.

* Roger, the [[BlondeGuysAreEvil blond-haired]] [[TheBully bully]] boy from ''VideoGame/NightsIntoDreams'', who has [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]], to boot. (The name ''Roger'' comes from Archie's short-lived comic book adaptation of the game, where he was given that name.)

* Will from {{Heroman}}, makes sense since he's an {{Expy}} of Flash Thompson from ''ComicBook/SpiderMan''.

* Eugene "Flash" Thompson, one of ''Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}'''s foils. He bullies Peter Parker constantly, but is a big fan of Spider-Man, not knowing they're the same person. In a subversion, the comics have him and Peter actually becoming friends after they graduate from high school. How's that possible? He isn't without his bad sides; When he was framed for being the Hobgoblin, everybody believed it immediately.

* In the ''MarmaladeBoy'' anime, Michael Grant's older brother Brian is a basketball genius who started out as a Jerk Jock with an horrible temper, a StalkerWithACrush-level love for Jinny Golding and a big competitive streak. When Yuu beats him at his game, though, he admits his defeat and becomes Yuu's friend.

** Flash makes a wordless cameo at [[spoiler: Harry]]'s funeral in Spider-Man 3, with an appropriately solemn look on his face. To merit the acceptance of his presence, it could be assumed he's mellowed out quite a bit.
