* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' revolves around the cul-de-sac being terrorised by an unseen "Prank Master". Eddy takes this as a personal challenge but the Eds end up spending the episode in fear of being pranked. [[spoiler: Turns out all the other kids were the Prank Master and staged the pranks themselves]].
* [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Bart Simpson]]. Many episodes start with one of his pranks setting off that week's plotline. One time, he heard of a former student who pulled a prank so epic it traumatized Principal Skinner for life, turning him from CoolTeacher to the DeanBitterman he is today. Bart tracks the prankster and finds him still living with his parents, devoting his time to pranks. He eventually gives him a job as Krusty's assistant [[spoiler: and eventually gets promoted to gag writer.]]

* Megan from ''DrakeAndJosh'' pulls pranks on her brothers every other week and {{Flanderization}} has turned them from harmless whoopee cushion style antics into freakily sociopathic (she puts explosives in their room in one episode).

* Dil appears to be this in ''AllGrownUp'' or at least the rest of the gang think he is in the April Fool's Day episode when they assume he's setting up an elaborate scam about an alien invasion. [[spoiler: Subverted when it turns out the aliens were real]].
** In the original ''{{Rugrats}}'' Angelica came the closest to fulfilling this role.

* In ''{{Friends}}'' Rachel teaches Ben to become one of these and he pulls some hilarious offscreen stunts on Ross (cellophane on the toilet seat). Ross gets his own back on Rachel at the end of the episode.
* Matt [=McGuire=] of ''LizzieMcGuire'', though mostly just pranking Lizzie. A FreakyFridayFlip episode has him wreaking havoc in Lizzie's school (while in her body).

Apparently, analysis of her pranks has shown she doesn't really have a sense of humour as such, she just knows what humans would find ''annoying''.
