* A first-season episode of ''Series/{{Gotham}}'' has Gordon catch it after practically the whole GCPD abandons him to Zsasz, to the point where he actively screws over one cop at one point in the episode.

* One of the reasons why ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' is a ContestedSequel is because of Harry's more abrasive characterization. When he's not brooding, he's yelling at his friends and teachers, and [[spoiler: breaking up with Cho]] for [[WhatTheHellHero calling out Hermione]] on [[spoiler: permanently disfiguring her friend for cracking under pressure against Umbridge]]. Granted, he's going through some pretty massive undiagnosed PTSD at the time and reached his breaking point as a teenager and it could be argued that his behaviour is justified after all the crap he has been through.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' has a short list of those who played with this ball...Buffy Summers, Dawn Summers, Xander Harris, Willow Rosenberg, Rupert Giles, Angel, Spike, Oz, Tara Maclay, Riley Finn, Anya...examples include going off the rails from trauma, anger at the actions of another character, being a BrattyHalfPint or needing to ShootTheDog, or NotHimself, or TokenEvilTeammate, to cut a very long story short Creator/JossWhedon's SignatureStyle is RuleOfDrama and happiness is boring, anything to twist the knife and twist the characters to pull this off will be done.

** ''ComicBook/SupermanDistantFires'' had Captain Marvel not only become arrogant and power-hungry, but the main villain of the comic, trying to kill Superman for leadership. Keep in mind that Captain Marvel is usually one of the more kindly DC Superheroes. Though then again, this was an independent comic and was never canon. [[spoiler: The Earth blowing up and EVERYONE dying (except Superman's son) at the end should be a clue]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'': The plot of "The Great Fairy Share Scare" seems to require Timmy to be an incredibly selfish {{Jerkass}} in order to make the plot work. This is pretty glaring as he had been seeing some CharacterRerailment after being a jerk in some of the previous seasons.

* One of the reasons why ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' is a ContestedSequel is because of Harry's characterization. When he's not Wangsting, he's yelling at his friends and teachers, and [[spoiler: breaking up with Cho]] for [[WhatTheHellHero calling out Hermione]] on [[spoiler: permanently disfiguring her friend for cracking under pressure against Umbridge]]. Granted, he's going through some pretty massive undiagnosed PTSD at the time. On that note, you can say Hermione grabbed the ball for Jinxing the sign-up sheet.

* To be brief, the characters of ''SpongebobSquarepants'' seemed to pass around the Jerkass Ball like a hot potato in the post-movie episodes.

This is when TookALevelInJerkass is plot-requested. Sometimes, an otherwise nice person becomes a {{Jerkass}} unexpectedly, most likely [[TheoryOfNarrativeCausality to advance the plot]] or sometimes simply [[RuleOfFunny for humor value]].
