%% * Karl Lichter von Randoll from ''Anime/FutureGPXCyberFormula'' is this when at his very worst. Being a very skilled racer (he also excels in every sport), he puts down anybody who aren't at his level of skill. He softens up later in the series, even having a sense of chivalry.

%%* * Kuzco, the JerkAss protagonist and titular Emperor of ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'' before much ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'', starts off as an entitled brat who sees no problem with making life a living hell for his subjects and servants. Much needed CharacterDevelopment.CharacterDevelopment happens after his [[EvilChancellor even worse advisor]] attempts to kill him but inadvertently [[BalefulPolymorph]] turns him into a [[FallenPrincess llama]] instead.

* In Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''Fable of the Three Princes'', the Imperial Princess Melliversa is one of those. To try and win her hand, suitors have to impress her, but no one ever managed to meet her impossibly high standards. Unfortunately for them, she also happens to be a powerful sorceress who turns the failed candidates into [[TakenForGranite stone statues]] to adorn her garden. [[spoiler:It's a ruse and a SecretTestOfCharacter. She is actually looking for someone who would call her out on her cruelty, rather than being dumb enough to court her just because she is rich and beautiful. Once she finds such a suitor, she promptly turns all the statues back to men again.]] Though the tale never addresses that, a bit of FridgeHorror kicks in when you realize that [[spoiler:even though she intended to eventually undo the spell, for all the relatives of all those young men knew, they were lost forever. Just how much pain and grief did Melliversa's quest for the perfect suitor indirectly cause?]]

* In AndreNorton's ''Literature/DreadCompanion'', Kilda's employer is more languid than most, but her attitude is nicely summed up when she informs Kilda that she will have to do, she can't interview any more, as if Kilda could not possibly reject the position. Then she sticks her with the children for the space trip.

* [[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).

* In Creator/GeneStrattonPorter's ''Michael O'Halloran'', Minturn's sons after they were effectively brought up by a violently abusive nurse. When Minturn gets evidence that lets him pry them free from their mother, he is quite aware that much will be needed to straight them out.

* 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.
