* Benjamin Hares, the estranged husband of Grace Glossy from ''Fanfic/OldWest''. He charmed Grace to rush with him to the altar, but then he suddenly left his pregnant wife penniless to escape the debts he had hoarded as a ConMan. Ten years later, he suddenly appears back to her doorstep, acting like he's sorry and wants to make up things with Grace and their son. Then he tries to sell Grace's lands behind her back, claiming that he just wants what's best for her, but in reality it's just so that the BigBad would settle his debts. When she tells him they're done and tries to throw him out, [[DomesticAbuser he becomes violent]], and it leads to [[spoiler:his death at the fangs of Rattlesnake Jake]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' [[spoiler:Norman Osborn spent the entire series portrayed as a JerkWithAHeartOfGold regarding his behavior towards his son Harry. In season 1 he asked Spider-Man not to reveal the (apparent) identity of the Green Goblin/Harry, as his enemies would seek retribution. The GrandFinale of season 2 reveals that Norman was the real Green Goblin and had gone as far as to damage his own son's leg and stuff him into the goblin suit to keep his secret]]. Peter was furious.

* Pete in ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop''. Sometimes he may seem almost nice, but it's ultimately overwhelmed by his selfishness. He doesn't even bother to cross his fingers before making a promise he plans to break. He almost never has any JerkWithAHeartOfGold moments that aren't subverted except [[PapaWolf when his family are in danger]], and even then, he goes back to mistreating them and everyone else around him afterward.

* Harry Mudd in ''Series/StarTrekDiscovery''. Unlike the LovableRogue he would become in ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', this younger version of him is perfectly happy to spy on his cellmates for the Klingons and steal their food. Later on, he goes murder-happy all over the ''Discovery'' and [[spoiler:spends 53 of his GroundhogDayLoop cycles killing Lorca in increasingly creative (and painful) ways]]. It seems initially that he's just pining for his lost love Stella, but it's eventually revealed that he ''ran away'' from Stella, as he only wanted her father's money.

** As a result of Flanderiztion, Mr.Krabs becomes one post-movie. His quick rich schemes become more and more illegal, he treat everyone like shit (including Spongebob and his own daughter) and will even chops off a man's hand for a penny. One comic issue had him playing psychology on Spongebob; by calling Spongebob lazy in an effort to make him work even harder. The poor guy had to sell his pineapple, renovate the entire restaurant and even turns his body into a kitchen and Mr.Krabs still pretends to threaten to replace him with a worm that had a spatula attached to its tail.

** Patrick was this in "Yours, Mine, and Mine". When [=SpongeBob=] offers to pay for Patrick's meal when he couldn't afford it, Patrick behaves like a jerk by using [=SpongeBob=]'s money to pay it without his consent, eating the meal without sharing it with him, and refused to share a toy with him through the episode, even going as far as to eat it just so [=SpongeBob=] couldn't have it. After Mr. Krabs resolves the two's fighting by offering two Krabby Patty toys, Patrick decides the money is "all on him this time", and takes [=SpongeBob=]'s money again and says hypocritically "Have you learned nothing about sharing?"

* Dio from ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward''. He's an asshole, everyone knows this. He does have a few apparent PetTheDog moments like his apparent care for Quark after [[spoiler: he caught Radical-6]], but it's all just a facade. In reality [[spoiler: he's even ''worse'' than he appaeared. Not only he murdered the old lady to get into the Nonary Game but he also set up the charges to blow up the whole facility.]]

* Master Neloth in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'''s ''Dragonborn'' DLC. He's an InsufferableGenius and magical MadScientist who truly believes [[ItsAllAboutMe Its All About Him]], and even believes that the ''return of the Dragons'' is an attempt to kill him by one of his many enemies. Much of what he does is simply ForScience and he has [[DudeWheresMyRespect very little respect]] for any other mortal, including a world-saving hero like [[PlayerCharacter the Dragonborn]], who is forced to aid him significantly in the DLC's main quest. If you visit him after ending the DLC questline, he will immediately examine you to ensure you don't have any remains of [[spoiler:[[EldritchAbomination Hermaeus Mora]]]]'s influence. When you answer him he doesn't need to worry about you, he will quiclky respond that he wasn't worried, just ''interested''.

Well, yeah, turns out that isn't really true. There's a perfectly selfish explanation for why he saved the busload of burning orphans - they're his secret team of kid snitches. And now [[BadSamaritan he's going to get a good laugh at your expense for ever thinking he could be so noble]].

* From the looks of things this applies to the Emperor of Mankind himself in ''Warhammer40000'', the ''HorusHeresy'' novel ''Master of Mankind'' in particular. In it he is callous and uncaring, his affection for his sons being just an act to maintain their loyalty while mentally he refers to them by their legion numbers.
