* Kobayashi's unnamed boss in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid''. He pushes all his work onto her, yells at her for the slightest mistake, and is stated to be a misogynist in the manga. [[LaserGuidedKarma She gets him fired by recording his rants and sending them to the company president]].

* Creator/TheBBC RadioDrama adaptation of ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'' introduces a bit of a RunningGag where the Patrician gets impatient and cross when his secretary fails to appear instantly when summoned, then is startled when the man [[ButlerSpace suddenly does appear instantly]]. Harmless enough, but it comes across as a contributing factor to why [[spoiler:said secretary summoned a dragon with which to take over the city and threw the Patrician in the dungeon]].

Compare DrJerk, DaChief, and DaEditor, three other tropes with frequent crossover. Not to be confused with a BadBoss, who isn't just a {{Jerkass}} to his co-workers, but so evil that he actually maims or kills them.

%% Need we mention the cube farm boss lady from ''Film/{{Wanted}}''? However much she may be right about Wesley not being productive, she is an absolute get-in-your-face-and-bark type of bully.

* Tsunade from ''{{Manga/Naruto}}'' is very much this, especially in the fillers. As Hokage (the chief of the village), she is shown to have a very short temper and is strict about shinobi going on missions and reporting back to her immediately upon completion. When enraged, she would throw her chair and other furniture out the window, and have [[ThoseTwoGuys Izumo and Kotetsu]] retrieve them.

%%* Roy Mustang from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''.

to:

%%* * Roy Mustang from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''.''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' treats Ed in a pretty crappy fashion (reminding him repeatedly that Ed became a "Dog Of The Military" by his own choice and, boo-hoo, that means he needs to take orders), including trying to blow him up sky-high when Ed chooses one-on-one combat for his yearly Alchemist test. Oddly enough, considering Roy's bosses (who are the ones who ordered such things as the ''genocide'' of Iztlavan) and the fact that he's enough of AFatherToHisMen that some of them decide to help him with his underground rebellion, he's a comparative subversion.

* Zeff, Sanji's mentor in ''Manga/OnePiece'', has the reputation of one, barking orders at his cooks like a DrillSergeantNasty and using harsh punishments when they mess up. (Whenever Sanji got a recipe wrong and botched it, Zeff made him ''eat it''.) He refuses to hire female cooks or waitresses because he forbids abuse of women, but does not show favoritism to employees (if he hired one, he'd have to treat her the same way, which he will not). Thing is, ''it works''. It's the biggest reason Sanji has been a success and Zeff's place is popular.
