* Eventually, two in ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'':
** After being nice to her at every chance you get throughout the game, [[spoiler:Victoria Chase]] is revealed to have some quite heavy social and emotional burdens.
** After only one or two glimpses into an underlying softness, [[spoiler:Nathan Prescott]]'s character is run back near the end of the game rather haphazardly to explain where his mean streak apparently comes from.

* Susan Sto Helit in ''Discworld/SoulMusic''. Her parents love her and try to show it, but, as RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething, are always away signing treaties, and have developed a fixation that encouraging her to become a FlatEarthAtheist is a good idea to shield her from [[TheGrimReaper her grandfather]]'s world, with the result that she's a bit of a StrawVulcan and the other girls see her as standoffish. (And then they die in a coach crash.) She has two friends, who are also outsiders, being a dwarf and a troll.

** Maria Ushiromiya is also this, but may be a subversion. She has no human friends not because she's rich but because she's a [[CreepyChild bit]] [[NightmareFetishist weird.]] However, if you ask Maria, she's perfectly happy because she has friends like Beatrice and Sakutaro...
** And then there's poor, poor [[spoiler:Beatrice Ushiromiya]].

** Korra herself wasn't rich in her own right or her family's right, but since the Order of the White Lotus provided for her every need, complete with a GildedCage that served as her home and training center, she still qualifies because she was sufficiently sheltered and well-provided-for. She wasn't allowed outside the complex without permission, and the only people she ever interacted with in the complex were her bending masters and sparring partners.

* Pacifica Northwest from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is both a RichBitch and an AlphaBitch, but this seems to be in great part due to her parents (who are way worse in that regard than she is, and that's an accomplishment) actively encouraging her to look down on anyone who is less well-off than she is, as well as pressuring her to be perfect at all times. Judging by how much Pacifica fears them, they might well be outright AbusiveParents as well. While she is popular for her wealth, she does not seem to have any real friends [[spoiler: until [[ShipTease Dipper]] and [[FireForgedFriends Mabel]]]].

* Strong fanon across many multiple works in "Series/Glee" that Sebastian Smythe fits this trope to a T. Same for Blaine Anderson (although he's probably more [[Spoiled Sweet]]).

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebVideo/GravityFallsDeepWoods'' explores this trope in ''Quest for the Northwest'' with [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Pacifica Northwest]] (who's already mentioned in the Western Animation folder). It uses the theory that she doesn't have any real friends [[spoiler:(outside of Dipper and Mabel)]]. Her parents favor their responsabilities and the maintenance of the family's good name over her. They often drag her at the parades they throw to boost their reputation, but force her to only wave at the crowd and look pretty in order to give the impression that their family is perfect; something they later use for commercials.
-->'''Pacifica:''' "And my parents drag me to these big publicity things where all I'm supposed to do is wave and watch everyone else have fun..."
