* Donald Duck acts this way in the WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse2013 short ''WesternAnimation/BroncoBusted''. For context, he, Mickey, and Goofy needed money to fix their car, and get the idea to compete in a rodeo to get the necessary money, with Donald pretending to be a horse. A millionaire offers to give Mickey and Goofy money in exchange for Donald due to mistaking him for an actual horse. Mickey is about to correct the millionaire until Donald eagerly accepts his offer, but he did it more because of the millionaire's promise to treat the "horse" like a king. Donald's parting words to Mickey and Goofy at the end of the short are even "So long, suckers".

* Sasuke Uchiha from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' fame, particularly after his FaceHeelTurn and subsequently TookALevelInJerkass. He was originally a rather straight JerkWithAHeartOfGold towards his teammates, but as he became more obsessed with revenge and attaining power he pretty much throws all of his morals out of the window, willing to kill even his new teammates to accomplish his goal. And what goal you may ask? Killing everybody in his old village of course. [[spoiler: It's not like his old village entrapped the Uchiha for extinction at all. /sarcasm-they did . . . This trope is spelled out when he shows up in the final battle to help Naruto defeat the BigBad; no, he didn't pull a HeelFaceTurn, or was even trying to atone for his actions, the villains were just in the way of accomplishing his goal and makes it perfectly clear that he intends to kill Naruto when the battle is over and take over his title as future Hogake. Furthermore, he abandons his wife and child, only returning years later when they accidentally run into him.]]

* Griffith, from ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', is more of [[ManipulativeBastard bastard]] than a quasi-sympathetic [=jerkass=], but every once in awhile he releases the inner [=jerkass=] within. One moment happens when he rescues Princess Charlotte from the clutches of the Emperor Ganishka in a very romantic and fairytale-ish way. Unfortunately for the her, [[LoveAtFirstSight Charlotte has been crazy in love with Griffith ever since she first lay eyes on him]], and Griffith [[NaiveEveryGirl has been using her feelings for him]] ever since in order to get closer to the Midland throne.

* [[spoiler:Felix]] from ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''. He initially comes across as a StepfordSmiler BrokenBird to the teams, with some abrasive and greedy moments, and [[NotInThisForYourRevolution different priorities than his employer]], but ultimately willing to see the war through. Turns out he's working for the then-unknown third faction who intends to kill all life on the planet, and he is [[PsychopathicManchild having the time of his life doing so]]. When his status as a FalseFriend come out, he mocks the Reds and Blues for buying his "charismatic mercenary with a heart of gold" act.

* The ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' crossover with ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'', "TTG v. PPG", has Robin, Starfire, and Raven act very condescending to the Powerpuff Girls and dismissing them as "babies". After the Powerpuff Girls beat Mojo Jojo, the Titans appear to learn their lesson and compliment the girls on their victory, only to get back to insulting them when Blossom replies that they couldn't have defeated Mojo without the Titans' help.

* GameOfThrones: In a show where even some of the most morally questionable people have redeemable traits, Joffery has none of that between [[spoiler: breaking his promise to spare Ned and then having him executed in front of Sansha and then making Sansha look at his severed head, constantly abusing Sansha mentally and physically (the latter by his guard), having children and babies murdered or anyone that annoys him for that matter, and humiliating Tyrion at the royal wedding. By the time Joffery is poison at his wedding you will be hard pressed to find anyone that felt sorry for him.]]
* Ramsay is maybe even worse then Joffery
