* Miu Kazashiro in ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' becomes one early in the show's run, losing her fanbase after the MonsterOfTheWeek [[EngineeredPublicConfession records her badmouthing her admirers and broadcasts it during the school's]] BeautyContest (and beats her up). She ends up winning back her classmates' respect by delivering an epic speech (while still bandaged), explaining that she hates admirers because it means they're focusing on her rather than improving themselves. She also accepts the MagneticHero's offer of friendship and ends up becoming the (self proclaimed) president of the Kamen Rider Club, and then the (self proclaimed) chairman after she graduates.

* Tamara from ''Series/LittleLunch'' has elements of this, although given her athleticism she may be more of a female JerkJock. She has the bossiness and tendency to dictate other people's social status of the traditional alpha bitch, but she's not really a bully, and she inevitably comes around and proves herself a good friend in the end.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Rarity is somewhat vain and materialistic, and occasionally looks her nose down on her more slovenly friends such as Applejack. However, she is no less helpful than the other ponies and embodies the Element of Generosity (her EstablishingCharacterMoment being when she sacrifices some of her beloved tail [[ItMakesSenseInContext to act as a mustache for a heartbroken sea serpent]]).

[[note]] [[spoiler: Babs Seed was bullied for being a Blank Flank, and Diamond Tiara was raised by her over-elitist parents to be perfect to the point of social awkwardness. Silver Spoon has no excuse rather than following Diamon Tiara as her BetaBitch, but is also the first of the two who comes to reason.]] [[/note]]

* Sansa Stark from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' is this, when on home turf in Winterfell -- she even has a small GirlPosse to irritate her sister, Ayra, with. She also manages to keep it for a little while in King's Landing, while (mostly) sheltered from the worst of what Court has to throw at everybody. Until everything goes very south, very, very quickly. But, nobody in Westeros can out-[[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Bitch]] Cersei Lannister, as the actually painfully young, naïve and rather sweet Sansa soon learns to her cost. She starts sharpening her skills to impressive levels, but... ouch. The learning process is beyond harsh, and wildly disproportionate to what her, frankly, juvenile bitchiness was.

* Sumire Shouda from ''Manga/AliceAcademy'' is this type. Throughout the series she is the bossiest and snobbiest girl in the class, holds Alices well above non-Alices and bullies Mikan when she first arrives at the Academy. However, she becomes helpful and resourceful and even kind when there is trouble and helps organise the students to fight. In later chapters she always takes Mikan's side when she is in trouble.

* Diana from ''Anime/LittleWitchAcademia'' comes from a long line of master witches. As a result, she is a {{Perfectionist}} who acts stuck up, takes pride in being better than the other witches in training, and acts condescending to those she feels are unworthy of the title with cold disrespect. She even has her own GirlPosse. However, deep inside, she is really caring, wants whats best for the witches guild, and is a ClosetGeek like her rival, the out-going Akko.



* From ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' comes Riko Saikawa, a girl who was introduced as the AlphaBitch of her class confronting Kanna (a young dragon banished to Earth for one too many pranks, and she's taken the form of a young girl to fit in), with a decidedly mixed message.
-->'''Saikawa:''' (Angrily) "Those clothes are too cute and you're good at everything. It makes me so angry that I want to give you a hug!!"
::It takes Kanna about 30 seconds and CrocodileTears to get Saikawa to feel bad and swear friendship out of regret. From that point, being the AlphaBitch is almost entirely overshadowed by Saikawa's running gag of CutenessOverload by Kanna and being her [[SchoolgirlLesbians (maybe) girlfriend]].

* Sylvia Wellington in ''The Adventures of Oliva'' has all the trappings of a classic '80s RichBitch: greed, ConspicuousConsumption, a snobby accent, and being the sole [[YourCheatingHeart married woman of the bunch]]. However, [[UnclePennybags she shares the wealth as much as she spreads her legs]], and, when hubby's finally shown, the couple are proven to be HappilyMarried swingers that mutually sleep around, but [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther only truly get off with each other]].
* Guillotine from ''ComicBook/MiniMonsters'' is a good example. She's a goth girl who bullies the Frank's gang alongside (or not) his "boyfriend" Morty (The leader of the gang and real AlphaBitch, although is male). In spite of that, she's best friends with Piruja (one of the Frank's gang) and helps her to conquer Victor (The spoiled protagonist), although she absolutely doesn't get along with him and his friends.



* Brittany Parsons of ''ComicBook/VonHerlingVampireHunter'' is one. She's even got her own GirlPosse, but cares about her friend Peggy Jo Warner and goes as far as to tell her posse to stop insulting Peggy.

* Gen from ''Film/IcePrincess'' comes off as an inconsiderate party girl at first, but later turns out to be a good friend and guide to Casey. Notably, Gen seems quite disgusted by the trick her mother Tina pulled on Casey, even though Tina was doing it for Gen.
* Jessica Spencer of ''Film/TheHotChick'' is a {{Jerkass}} to certain people she doesn't like, but takes good care of her baby brother. The PetTheDog moment with her brother is important because it makes it easy for us to feel sorry for her later on when she is magically transformed into a man (don't ask).
* [[Film/HighSchoolMusical Sharpay Evans]] either becomes this in her own movie (''Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure'') or always was this [[UnintentionallySympathetic for]] [[DracoInLeatherPants some]] [[RootingForTheEmpire audiences]].
* [[spoiler: Regina George]] is implied to be one by the end of ''Film/MeanGirls''.
* Amber Von Tussle in ''Film/HairSpray'' (the musical and its film adaptation, in which she accepts her defeat and decides to join everyone else in having fun dancing… in the film, she even does so with a black dancer, defying her mother's racism.)



* Deconstructed in ''Film/TheHole'' with Keira Knightley's character Frankie. When Liz tells her story to the police we see in flashbacks that Frankie is popular but isn't bitchy to Liz and helps her out (it's implied that Liz does her homework for her). [[spoiler: Then we learn that Liz's story is a lie and we see real flashbacks and Frankie fits the Alpha Bitch stereotype down to a T. Though Liz is actually worse than her.]]

She's the typical AlphaBitch [[TheTease sex tease]], [[spoiler:but only because of the pheromones and chemicals she's been given by the White Collars, to change her story to behavior and intelligence.

* ''Film/{{DEBS}}'' starts off with Max as the captain of the D.E.B.S. squad. She has a Type A, take-charge and aggressive personality that tends to dominate everyone around her and can be quite rough with Amy Bradshaw. After she's demoted to second-in-command she's devastated and becomes more sympathetic, and by the end of the movie she covers Amy's escape with Lucy, proving that she's a true friend.
* Ashley Fruend and Ashlyn Halperin from ''Film/FinalDestination3'', despite behaving like typical ditzy popular girls, are actually friendly towards the protagonist Wendy. In their funeral, [[DeadpanSnarker Ian]] mentions how they had never done anything bad to anybody.
* ''Film/{{GBF}}'' focuses on a high school with three alpha bitches, all of whom reveal a far nicer side. 'Shley is willing to befriend Tanner despite Mormonism forbidding it, and is generally the nicest and most approachable out of the three of them. Fawcett is the only one to stand up for Tanner re: the school's homophobic prom policies. Caprice is the only girl to understand Tanner needs a romantic life and isn't a neutered purse-poodle--so she tries to set him up with a hot British guy.

* The title character of ''Film/ILoveYouBethCooper'' is this pretty much from the outset, even if she DrivesLikeCrazy. It's not her fault her boyfriend's a psycho...
* Gen Harwood from ''Film/IcePrincess'' comes off as an inconsiderate party girl at first, but later turns out to be a good friend and guide to Casey. Notably, Gen seems quite disgusted by the trick her mother Tina pulled on Casey, even though Tina was doing it for Gen.
* ''Film/{{Jawbreaker}}'' had TokenGoodTeammate of the GirlPosse Liz Purr, who was never a real AlphaBitch though part of a bitchy girl posse. Julie became this through CharacterDevelopment. At the beginning of the movie, she suffering from BystanderSyndrome, which leads to her involvement in the prank that killed Liz. She then grows a moral spine, quits the posse and takes AlphaBitch [[VillainProtagonist Courtney]] [[MomentOfAwesome down]] via EngineeredPublicConfession.
* [[spoiler: Regina George]] is implied to be one by the end of ''Film/MeanGirls''.
* Misa from ''Film/{{Oyayubihime}}'' is nosy, rude and gossipy. But she definitely isn't a bully, and she stands up to Saeko in spite of being blackmailed into staying quiet. Not to mention, her fights with the teacher provide much comic relief.

She is still portrayed as likable.

She had two KickTheDog moments at the beginning, when she ripped the card that Cirilo gave her for her birthday and then when she ratted Marcelina for cheating on a test. The ''second'' one, however, bit her in the butt badly as her classmates (''[[DoggedNiceGuy Cirilo]]'' included) isolated her; Maria Joaquina ended up [[HeroicBSOD breaking down]] [[CryCute in tears]] due to this, and after that she became the Lovable

By season 2, she's been hired on at Hogarth, Chao & Benowitz and has become a somewhat nicer person.

* Mini from ''Series/{{Skins}}''. She started out pure AlphaBitch, but has grown gradually [[DefrostingIceQueen nicer]] over the course of Season 5 since [[ThePowerOfFriendship becoming friends with the other kids]], although the Mini/Franky/Matty love triangle can bring out [[GreenEyedMonster her bitchier side]].



* Lexi of ''Series/ANTFarm'' started the show a straight-up AlphaBitch, but has slowly been shaping up as this, getting some moments of potential friendship with Chyna and even some ShipTease with Chyna's brother, Cameron.
* Naomi from ''[[Series/BeverlyHills90210 90210]]'' evolved into this after her CharacterDevelopment in season 3.

to:

* Lexi of ''Series/ANTFarm'' started the show a straight-up AlphaBitch, Jackie Burkhart from ''Series/That70sShow''. Originally, she's TheFriendNobodyLikes, but has slowly Donna eventually warms up to her, and they become a TomboyAndGirlyGirl pair.
* Lydia Martin from ''Series/TeenWolf'', especially when she's around Allison or Jackson. But she's a hard character to hate once you've seen her [[spoiler:season-long descent into hallucination-induced insanity]].
* Caroline from ''Series/TheVampireDiaries''. Blonde, popular, pretty, ditzy (not helped by having
been shaping up as this, getting some moments of potential friendship repeatedly mind controlled), but nice enough.
%%* Rosamund "Rosie" Webster, from ''Series/CoronationStreet''. [[IAmNotSpock Do not confuse her
with Chyna and even some ShipTease with Chyna's brother, Cameron.
* Naomi from ''[[Series/BeverlyHills90210 90210]]'' evolved into this after
Helen Flanagan, her CharacterDevelopment actress]].
%%* Cassidy Cornell gradually becomes one
in season 3.''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder''.
%%* [[Literature/GossipGirl Blair Waldorf]].
%%* [[Series/TheFactsOfLife Blair Warner]].



* Maria Joaquina from ''Series/{{Carrusel}}''. She had two KickTheDog moments at the beginning, when she ripped the card that Cirilo gave her for her birthday and then when she ratted Marcelina for cheating on a test. The ''second'' one, however, bit her in the butt badly as her classmates (''[[DoggedNiceGuy Cirilo]]'' included) isolated her; Maria Joaquina ended up [[HeroicBSOD breaking down]] [[CryCute in tears]] due to this, and after that she became the Lovable Alpha Bitch we know and love.
* Miu Kazashiro in ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' becomes one early in the show's run, losing her fanbase after the MonsterOfTheWeek [[EngineeredPublicConfession records her badmouthing her admirers and broadcasts it during the school's]] BeautyContest (and beats her up). She ends up winning back her classmates' respect by delivering an epic speech (while still bandaged), explaining that she hates admirers because it means they're focusing on her rather than improving themselves. She also accepts the MagneticHero's offer of friendship and ends up becoming the (self proclaimed) president of the Kamen Rider Club, and then the (self proclaimed) chairman after she graduates.



* Alisha from ''Series/{{Misfits}}''. Although other characters have called her out on her bitchy behavior and after going through a lot of CharacterDevelopment she is no longer an AlphaBitch.



* Rachel on ''Series/{{Friends}}'' started off like this before her CharacterDevelopment. This goes back to her days in high school when she was a spoiled AlphaBitch cheerleader but was still friends with the unpopular Monica.
* Examples of this abound on ''Series/AmericasNextTopModel''. Bianca from Cycle 9 was a monster, picking on poor [[UsefulNotes/AspergersSyndrome Aspie]] Heather and Stripper With A Heart Of Gold Lisa. But you can't hate her too much when her disses are as poetic as "check your thighs in the mirror, and I'm done" and her claim that she's a "fun bitch" not a "bitchy bitch". It's more fun to judge ''America's Next Top Model'' contestants by their capacity for MemeticMutation as opposed to their actual modelling ability.



* Lydia Martin from ''Series/TeenWolf'', especially when she's around Allison or Jackson. But she's a hard character to hate once you've seen her [[spoiler:season-long descent into hallucination-induced insanity]].
* ''Series/OneTreeHill'': Brooke Davis. Early on, she's closer to the AlphaBitch side of things, but she's also very protective of the people she considers friends, even if they aren't the typical popular people (note her [[OddFriendship friendship with Mouth]]).
* Penny from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' is a gorgeous young woman who socializes easily and who was very popular in high school. Her bitchy behavior shows mostly in regards to her relationship with scientists Bernadette and Amy. In one episode, she realized she was a high school bully and was sorry about it. She is still portrayed as likable.
* Marci Stahl in ''Series/Daredevil2015''. When we first meet her in "World on Fire," she seems like Regina George if Regina George became a lawyer - she makes no secret of being selfish and mostly interested in her own career. But Marci has moral standards and her open bitchiness can be strangely endearing. Karen finds it amazing that Foggy used to date her. Marci eventually drops the selfishness bit after Foggy persuades her to turn against her colleagues at Landman & Zack and sell them out for conspiring in Wilson Fisk's criminal enterprise. By season 2, she's been hired on at Hogarth, Chao & Benowitz and has become a somewhat nicer person.
* Jessie on ''Series/DeadOfSummer'' starts out looking like a more conventional AlphaBitch, but receives some major CharacterDevelopment in episode 4 showing her to have a softer side. [[spoiler:Of the two people who learn that Drew is transgender, she's the one who accepts him for who he is -- and given that the show is set in TheEighties, that says a lot about her character. (Especially since the other person who found out about Drew's sexuality, Blair, was himself gay, and was [[UnsettlingGenderReveal squicked out about his would-be boyfriend's gender identity]].)]]



* Haley, one of the possible romance options from ''VideoGame/StardewValley'', is initially established as a stuck-up little brat who insults [[PlayerCharacter The Farmer]]'s scruffy appearance and throws tantrums at being told to do minor housework. However, her bonding scenes and her list of favourite gifts reveals she's quite sweet deep down. She's notably the only potential romance option who ends up taking a curious interest in the main character's farmer lifestyle, and she even takes up reading and donating much of her colossal wardrobe to charity.
* Elise in VideoGame/{{Story Of Seasons}} is a RichBitch who controls the majority of the games fields in the beginning, and her servants paint a vivid picture of her as condescending and harsh, most of them loathing her. One servant even imagines her possible future spouse and [[HenpeckedHusband pities the poor man]]. However, she's surprisingly affable to the player, and gives you your first horse for cheap[[note]]5 milks[[/note]]. After some CharacterDevelopment, she becomes nicer.
* Karin Kanzuki of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha'' fame debuted as an arrogant, haughty RichBitch, but over the course of her story in that game, she befriends her rival Sakura, sponsors up and coming wrestler Rainbow Mika, and generally matures to the standards her family expects of her. Come ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'' and she's now become the de-facto BigGood of the story, using her money and power to assist the heroes in taking on [[NebulousEvilOrganization Shadaloo]] and offering her family's massive estate as a base of operations for them to do so.

* [[spoiler:Lana]] in ''Literature/ThePrincessDiaries''. By the end of the series, she's become close friends with Mia and is shown to be genuinely sympathetic. As soon as the film premiered in 2001, she is Mia's enemy even though ''Music/MandyMoore'' portrayed her as a ultra snobby cheerleader in which she doesn't like her princess friend (''Creator/AnneHathaway'') at all due to the protagonist stealing her boyfriend, Josh Bryant, right from under her nose.

* Mira Kagami in ''[[Franchise/TokimekiMemorial Tokimeki Memorial 1]]'' when [[spoiler:you get to see her HiddenDepths (dead father, painful rejections, poverty)]]. Accentuated in the various tie-in Radio Drama, [[TheAnimeOfTheGame OVA]], and spin-off games, which flesh out her character further.

* From Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid comes Riko Saikawa, a girl who was introduced as the AlphaBitch of her class confronting Kanna (a young dragon banished to Earth for one too many pranks, and she's taken the form of a young girl to fit in), with a decidedly mixed message.
