* Flay Allster from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'' started as a sort-of space version of the AlphaBitch, but later she manipulated Kira for a good chunk of the series as "revenge" since he didn't save her father, George, from a ''really'' nasty death in space. Which she ''witnessed'' from the bridge of the ''Archangel''. [[spoiler: She eventually ''did'' fall for Kira for real and attempted to redeem herself, [[RedemptionEqualsDeath only to die as a result]].)]]
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'': Dorothy Catalonia starts off looking like a Rich Bitch who gets into ideological squabbles with [[TheOjou Relena]] all while [[FemmeFatale making subtle passes at Heero, Quatre, Zechs]], [[LesYay and Relena]]. Later on it's revealed that she's a BrokenBird with [[ParentalAbandonment issues]], and official sequels depict her as much nicer, but still playful and flirty. She's got her gold-plated limousine, space shuttle, and, in ''Endless Waltz'', transport carrier.

Oddly enough she goes to Haru in ''Manga/{{Ojojojo}}'' is a public school, but she sure qualifies main character example and could count as a deconstruction. Because of her incredibly snobby attitude, she's alienated herself from everyone around her and constantly has to transfer schools.

* ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'' - Several examples in one-off characters, but perhaps most memorable was Jessebella, James' fiancée (and the IdenticalStranger of Jessie).

* ''InDeath'': A number of characters, murder victims and murderers are very much this. Pandora in ''Immortal In Death'' becomes an AssholeVictim early on. Winnie and Moriarity are murderous, rich bastards in ''Indulgence In Death''.

* The ''ChaletSchool'' series has Thekla von Stift, Marie von Eschenau's cousin and one of the main characters in ''Exploits of the Chalet Girls''. As a member of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junker Junker]] class, she expresses horror at having to be educated alongside 'the daughters of shopkeepers', and looks down on most of the other students, such as Sophie Hamel, whose father is a self-made businessman. Her arrogant and childish behaviour makes her greatly unpopular amongst the other kids, and although she does thaw out a tiny bit - this being the Chalet School - after her petticoat catches fire, she still has a cruel streak and is eventually expelled in ''A Rebel at the Chalet School''.

* Eva Ushiromiya from ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' might not be any richer than her siblings, but she has no problems fitting the trope, to the point where she considers herself the only one worthy of Kinzo's estate. And just look at the way she treats [[TheWoobie Natsuhi]].\\\

Snide, contemptuous and ever-so-superior to coworkers or neighbors, the RichBitch is the character you love to hate. She has social position and/or money, and never lets ''anyone'' around her forget it; and if she can make you feel like dirt, she'll do it just to amuse herself. She can be especially vicious to men pursuing her who are not up to her sometimes impossible standards. Too much money has made them evil.

* Esme Squalor from ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents''. Later, her adopted "daughter" Carmelita Spats, who was originally a nasty AlphaBitch, becomes this as well.

* Etoile Rosenqueen from the ''Marl Kingdom'' games tends to come off as one of these, even hiring out Mooks and heavy weaponry to win a ''[[SeriousBusiness beauty pageant]]''. She * does* [[CharacterDevelopment become a lot more of a sympathetic character]] later in ''RhapsodyAMusicalAdventure'', though, and she's definitely one of the Heart of Gold Rich Bitches.

* Ultimately averted with [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Ai Ebihara]]. She initially comes off as [[AlphaBitch beautiful but cold-hearted]], but it's revealed that [[spoiler: her family used to be poor and she, in her own words, was a [[FatGirl "stinkin' fatso"]], making her [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer prone to mockery.]] When [[RagsToRiches her father]] [[NouveauRiche struck it rich in real estate]], Ai decided to [[IJustWantToBeBeautiful change her image so she wouldn't be mocked anymore]].]]
* Subverted with [[spoiler: Serra]] from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe''. She actually [[spoiler: is an orphan who works as a vassal for a rich noble house, and a lot of her RichBitch behavior [[StepfordSmiler is a mask]] to hide [[BrokenBird her serious abandonment issues]].]]
* While more SpoiledSweet and a LovableAlphaBitch, Maribelle, a noblewoman mounted healer, from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' can come off as snobbish and cold to people, except for those she considers her friends.
