So, there's this [[AlphaBitch girl]]. She's [[TheBeautifulElite beautiful]], [[PopularityFoodChain popular]], [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]], [[InWithTheInCrowd exclusive]] and...[[JerkWithAHeartOfGold not so bad once you get to know her]]. She still hangs out with the [[GirlPosse popular crowd]], regularly attends {{Wild Teen Part|y}}ies, and has been known to be vicious and petty to the unfortunates at the bottom of the PopularityFoodChain with some rare occasions of PetTheDog in between. She may even act this way toward the heroine at first. But a few bonding activities and a little CharacterDevelopment later, she's the one who has the heroine's back, with whom she often forms a TomboyAndGirlyGirl pair.

Note that the Lovable Alpha Bitch doesn't have to be pally with or even nice to the heroine's TrueCompanions, although she usually tolerates most of them. It also doesn't mean that she won't continue her {{Alpha Bitch}}y ways toward other unfortunate victims...[[ProtagonistCenteredMorality just not toward the heroine]]. In a lot of cases, a Lovable Alpha Bitch will be joined by a BetaBitch who is the really nasty one and will resent the relationship between her and the heroine. Basically, she is an {{Anti Villain}}ous Alpha Bitch.

* If ''Manga/OnePiece'' had taken place in a high school, Boa Hancock would be one of these. She takes care of her people, is brave and caring when it comes to her sisters and those that earn her favor, and has a genuinely good FreudianExcuse. But to everyone else, well...Quoth the Queen herself:
-->"Whether I kick a kitten...tear off your ears...even slaughter innocent people...the world will never cease to forgive my actions! Why, you ask? Why, [[ScrewTheRulesImBeautiful it is because I am beautiful]]!"

* One-time character Sonoko Iijyuin from the 5th season of ''Manga/SailorMoon'', ''Sailor Stars''. Grade A AlphaBitch to Usagi, demanding her to leave Seiya alone since she's his number 1 fan and challenging her to beat her at her sport...which is a totally unequal position, as Usa is a CuteClumsyGirl while Sonoko is a PassionateSportsGirl and REALLY good at softball. But when she sees that [[PluckyGirl Usagi is still determined to try it]], she softens up and sees Usagi as a WorthyOpponent. [[spoiler:And THEN, she's attacked by Lead Crow and forcibly turned into a monster--but Usagi, as Sailor Moon, manages to save her]].

* Fatina from ''Anime/TheTowerOfDruaga'' definitely feels like one of these. She's materialistic, vain (her whole reason for adventuring is to become rich so that she can buy her favorite fashion accessories), has a tendency to be judgmental and slap labels on and look down on people, enjoys mild bullying...is highly concerned about her companions, and has a strong sense of duty. When Jil is depressed after the events of season 1, Fatina is the one who takes care of him and works hard supporting him financially for several months.

* Jules from ''Film/TheCabinInTheWoods'' is an interesting subversion of the trope...as is every other trope in this movie. She's the typical alpha bitch sex tease, [[spoiler:but only because of the pheromones and chemicals she's been given by the white collars, to change her behavior and intelligence. In truth, she's very friendly, loveable and funny, as seen in the beginning of the film.]]

* 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.

* 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 (unless Sheldon knocks on her door, saying "Penny! Penny! Penny!" three times before letting him in, usually in a serious situation especially when her arm was fractured while falling on a slippery bathtub while taking a shower, making the shower curtain fall on her nude body in which she is in her wrapped up bath towel, causing him to escort her to a nearby hospital after she says "Don't You Dare Knock" in front of Sheldon Cooper during a TBS syndicated airing of [[spoiler: season 3, episode 8 - The Adhesive Duck Deficiency]] and dislocated her shoulder).

* Sissi of ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'', especially in Seasons 2 and 4 when [[DependingOnTheWriter there were a lot more episodes with her written that way]], though she had a few moments in the first season as well. Much of her setbacks to being a just plain Alpha Bitch were do to the literal ResetButton the show likes to use, and being a just plain Alpha Bitch to start with was because of a stupid misunderstanding between the heroes and her back in the prequel episodes. In the series finale, her status as one finally sticks when the heroes make her a part of their group.

* Stephanie Knightleigh in ''WesternAnimation/EdgarAndEllen'' occasionally falls into this, either being nice toward her little brother, helpful toward her [[VillainProtagonist equally jerkish adversaries]], or surprisingly {{badass}} in her scuffles with them that even they respect her for it. This is a contrast to the book series the show is loosely based on, where the twins [[TookALevelInKindness gradually become better people]] (despite all their attempts to resist this) while Stephanie is a [[TheSociopath sociopath]] with little in the way of redeeming traits.

* Contrary to all expectation, the "one-dimensional bleach-blonde valley girl stereotype" Pacifica Northwest ends up becoming this in the second season of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', with both Mabel and Dipper bringing out her better side on separate occasions, especially with the revelation of her [[spoiler:rather [[ParentalAbuse disturbing]] [[FreudianExcuse Freudian Excuse]]]].

* Lo from ''WesternAnimation/{{Stoked}}'' technically ''should'' be the Alpha Bitch, given her "pedigree". She's a spoiled, gorgeous, manipulative, rich girl with a spray-on tan...however, she's also friendly and loyal, downright ''[[SpoiledSweet sweet]]'' even, and loves her friends.

* Kourogi Mikage from ''Manga/{{Nononono}}'' who is a gold medalist and having both looks and brains is thought of (and thinks of herself) as a national celebrity. At first glance she is a grade A AlphaBitch that treats others as inferior to her and is ready to make their life miserable if they dare to deny her anything, once you get to know her though it turns out that despite all her arrogance she is a decent and caring person whose bithiness comes as much from her "upper class" status as from her [[{{Tsundere}} inability to honestly express her feelings]].

* ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'' has Kongou Mitsuki, who apparently got the idea that acting like an AlphaBitch would [[LonelyRichKid get her some friends]]. Suffice to say, she got friends by acting otherwise. She still puts on the haughty whenever dealing with Kuroko, though.

* Emily Caston from ''{{Webcomic/Rain}}''. She initially comes across as a typical AlphaBitch who's concerned with having "the perfect year" and graduating valedictorian. However, after Rain gets to know her, she makes it clear that behavior is just a façade. In truth, Emily describes herself as awkward and antisocial, suffers from extreme ParentalNeglect, is very knowledgeable on the subject of romantic and sexual orientations. She also trusts Rain with the secret that she's [[spoiler: pregnant with her (much older) ex-boyfriend's child, who she's going to keep]]. Emily is also the first person to whom Rain directly comes out as being transgender. The two of them become extremely close friends and even call each other sisters, [[spoiler: although Rain actually has a crush on her and [[CannotSpitItOut can't spit it out]]]].
