** The Queen's successor and nephew, RoyalBrat Prince Wu was vain and foolish to the extreme, but wound up being ''far'' more courteous than his aunt. His personality was largely defined by being spoiled and self-centered, but he readily accepted criticisms and advice from those below his station. Once when seeing Mako (who'd been forced to serve as his bodyguard) was depressed, Wu dropped everything to try and cheer him up.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': You can easily use this trope to see the difference between [[SiblingYinYang Zuko and Azula]]. Sure, Zuko comes off as a bit of a {{Jerkass}} at first, but he does save the life of one of his {{Red Shirt}}s in "The Storm." Azula's EstablishingCharacterMoment, meanwhile, includes threatening to throw her ship's captain overboard and let him drown because he's reluctant to bring the ship in to shore during a period of dangerous tides (to be fair he later proved himself an idiot, so maybe she had some reason to treat him that way. At least that time).

* Series/TheAddamsFamily treat Lurch the butler and Thing the... thing... more like members of their family more than servants. There was even one episode where, worried that Lurch may be getting overworked, Pugsly made a robot to help him. (It ended up getting destroyed because Lurch didn't want it to take his place.)

* In Creator/DanAbnett's TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} novel ''Literature/BrothersOfTheSnake'', when the [[RoyalBrat Princess Royal]] tries to object to a FlashedBadgeHijack of her car, a bodyguard points out that they are, after all, Space Marines.

* Played both ways in ''Series/TheThickOfIt''. The ministers in charge treat their subordinates horribly, and Malcolm and Jamie have no problem hurling truckloads of abuse towards at politicians and civil servants (though these almost always deserve it), but the Caledonian Mafiosos are both markedly kind and polite to "normal people" like cleaners and drivers, and seem to mostly reserve their ire on those who make it clear they're only in it for themselves.

* Played both ways in ''Series/TheThickOfIt''. The ministers in charge treat their subordinates horribly, and Malcolm and Jamie have no problem hurling truckloads of abuse towards their own underlings (though these almost always deserve it). The Caledonian Mafiosos are both however kind and friendly to non-politicians, such as cleaners and drivers, and seem to concentrate their abuse on those who make it clear they're only in it for themselves.
