* [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] by Empress Petralka in ''Anime/OutbreakCompany''. She initially appears to be a royal brat, but it quickly becomes obvious that she works hard to try to be a ReasonableAuthorityFigure but is struggling under the stress of having been crowned empress at such a young age (with a little bit of FantasyRacism that she ends up getting over as the story progresses and some annoyance at Shinichi's more obnoxious antics thrown in).

* Princess Violet in ''[[SwordOfTruth Wizard's First Rule]]'' is this taken to the extreme. As she enters the story, she's just starting to have people executed, and later on partakes in torturing the protagonist and threatening to have his love interest raped to death. Then he kicks her in the face. [[spoiler: A few books later, she is taught to cast curses through magical drawings. Cut to a LittleMissBadass coming to visit; ''Well... Who's that on the drawing? Oh, that's right, it's me. (draws a few lines) Well, Violet, now it's you. Cut to SoundOnlyDeath.'']]

* It's been noted that the children of ruthless dictators are often even more twisted and psychotic than their parents. Many in Iraq didn't feel the old regime had ended until they saw proof that Saddam's AxeCrazy sons, Uday and Kusay, were both dead. And while opinion in Serbia was split regarding SlobodanMilosevic, that of his freeloading, playboy son Marko was not.

* In Harry Turtledove's ''Tales of the Fox'' series, most of the [[PhysicalGod Gods]] are this way, since no one is powerful enough to discipline them. Ferdulf, the [[HalfHumanHybrid demimortal]] son of an extremely impulsive wine god, grows up with nearly-godlike power among ordinary mortals and is even brattier than his father.

** Aerion "[[{{Jerkass}} the Monsrous]]" or "[[ManOnFire Brightflame]]" Targaryen was a little monster born to the Targaryen dynasty. He was arrogant and cruel, tormenting his [[BigBrotherBully youngest brother]], Aegon, with such acts as throwing their [[KickTheDog cat down a well]] or threatening to castrate him. He even attacked a carnival puppeteer for the "crime" of showing a dragon losing in a puppet show depicting folklore, seeing as the dragon is the sigil of House Targaryen, so [[InsaneTrollLogic this had to mean treason]]! For this and other idiocies, he was [[BreakTheHaughty exiled to Essos]]; but, unfortunately, it didn't teach him the sense it was supposed to. Thankfully, before his father Maekar I died and he could become TheCaligula, Aerion [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy got drunk]] and drank the [[GreekFire infamous goblet of wildfire]], all the while believing it would turn him into a dragon. He [[AssholeVictim died really, really horribly]], meaning the Iron Throne ended up passing to Aegon "the Unlikely".

** The World Nobles. They're selfish, are loaded enough to buy anything, including slaves, for outrageous prices without even paying attention to it, and have such a high opinion of themselves that they think of regular people as lowly trash. This last to the point that they even wear helmets so as to not breathe the same air as them. If it wasn't for the fact that harming them is considered a Suicide Attack, they would most likely would have all been killed a long time ago.

* In the first ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' book, ''Arrows of the Queen'', Princess Elspeth has made such a pain of herself that she's been nicknamed "the Royal Brat" by everyone who has to have anything to do with her. It's a subject of concern not only for the distraught Queen but for the rest of the court as well, because if one doesn't have a pure enough heart to be Chosen by a Companion, by law they cannot be eligible to inherit the throne. The newly-Chosen [[TheConfidant Queen's Own Herald]] Talia's first responsibility upon arriving at the capital is therefore to try to figure out a way to civilize the Brat. Fortunately, Talia finds that Elspeth is not unredeemable and that a lot of her issues come from the influence of her [[EvilChancellor evil nursemaid]]; by the time she's reached her teens, she's become a much more pleasant young woman.

** Viserys Targaryen, another blond-haired brat from an ancient royal family who was exiled when his father's insanity became too violent for the nobles to tolerate - and naturally, given this trope, thinks that the problem was those rebellious nobles, and not the fact that his father wanted to burn down an entire city out of spite. Viserys is spoiled, entitled, vindictive, cruel, cowardly, and entirely without redeeming qualities. It's strongly implied he is sexually attracted to his sister, he is abusive to her both emotionally and physically, and he whores her out to the local warrior king in the belief that it will help him get his golden crown. [[KarmicDeath It does, and it is gloriously satisfying.]]
