** If Pokemon trainers can be included in this, then Tammi the cheerleader from the Johto league anime definitely counts. She once was strict but gentle to her Politoed and her other Pokemon, but as she let her pride and stress get to her head prior to a competition, she became bitchy and demanding and furiously berated them for any mistakes. It took a brief BreakTheHaughty and a harsh call-out from Misty to stop doing this.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' episode "Ezekial", Shake forces his son Ezekiel to play basketball and tennis in an attempt to make him a sports star, constantly berating him when Ezekiel shows no talent or interest in it, and tries to commit suicide to make him feel guilty.
