Contrast with LovableJock, which is often deliberately done to show that not all jocks are like this.

Contrast with LovableJock, which is often deliberately done LovableJock. Originally LovableJock was the normal portrayal while JerkJock was a reversal, but nowadays JerkJock tends to show that not all jocks are like this.

* Roger Klotz from ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}''. Chalky's usually nice, though.
** In the {{retool}}, Roger wins the lottery, causing some interesting developments as he no longer has the sympathetic background. (Previously, he was living in a trailer.) His hitting on [[SpoiledSweet Bebe]] only disgusts her.
** Although to be fair, Roger is actually a pretty mild example. While he's no doubt a bully, Roger often finds himself on civil terms with Doug, and rarely threatens him physically, preferring to stick to immature pranks.

* This is usually subverted in SurvivalOfTheFittest, but in v1 the baseball team was said to sometimes bully other students despite the fact that they were like brothers to each other, and in v3 a few members of the football team have shown tendencies to do such, with Gentle Giant / Scary Black Man Darnell Butler having had to fight some of them on occasion to stop them from particularly severe actions. Though that doesn't change that he used to be one himself. V3 character Adam Reeves practically epitomizes this trope, with a touch of fatalism and [[SocialDarwinist Social Darwinism]] thrown in. V4 character Phillip Ward, a member of the ice hockey team, is also known to a bully and once beat up Jimmy Brennan during a tryout. Not counting the occasional bullies who're otherwise good people, though, this trope almost never appears in SOTF, which is slightly surprising.

Unfortunately, this trope tends to be somewhat a TruthInTelevision, and very much restricted to team sports. The reason is [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diffusion_of_responsibility diffusion of responsibility]]: team sports encourage tribal mentality, loyalty to own tribe (team), hostility to other tribes (other teams) and complete indifference towards outsiders. The tribal mentality dilutes the responsibility of one's behaviour and manners, and even at some instances encourages uppity and obnoxious behaviour. Practitioners of individual sports befall ''very'' rarely on JerkJock category, and are more often of BadassBookworm or GeniusBruiser type. JerkJock behaviour is ''seriously'' discouraged in martial arts, where getting into a fight or caught from bullying can lead in expulsion of the sports.
