* ''Film/PowerRangers2017'' shows that Kimberly was previously on the cheerleading squad, and she's ostracised by her friends at the start. But it's later revealed [[spoiler: she shared a nude photo of her friend around to the whole school]], meaning that Kim herself was an example of the trope.

* Played with in ''Series/DesperateHousewives''; Susan was a popular cheerleader in high school and though she claims she was perfectly nice she did 'accidently' steal another girl's boyfriend and lumber her with an unfortunate nickname (Mike calls her on seemingly selective memory). Also many fans consider to Susan to be TheDitz anyway. A later episode also retroactively makes Bree's bitchy, slutty, dim daughter Dannielle a cheerleader.

* In ''Videogame/{{Psychonauts}}'', the romance story of the Black Veletopia stage is eventually revealed to be an overly romanticized version of Edgar's memories of his former cheerleader girlfriend who dumped him for the head male cheerleader. At the end of the stage, Edgar realizes that Lana and Dean were stupid and shallow individuals who aren't worth obsessing over and thus banishes them to the deepest pits of his memories.

Male cheerleaders are sufficiently rare in fiction that they are usually developed as characters themselves rather than falling under The Cheerleader trope. A good rule of thumb is that if you see a male cheerleader, then cheerleading will be depicted positively, or at least less negatively. They always are usually gay.

If you're looking for the cheerleading performance itself, her potential {{foil}}, or maybe just the dress worn while doing it, you want the PomPomGirl.

If you're looking for the cheerleading performance itself, her potential {{foil}}, or maybe just the dress worn while doing it, you want the PomPomGirl. A cheerleader who is not an AlphaBitch can sometimes be portrayed as a LovableJock.

* Buffy in the television version of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' who after trying it for one episode never mentioned it again until helping out Cordelia with cheerleading in [[VideoGame/BuffyTheVampireSlayer the XBOX game]], set before the season 3 episode "Lovers Walk".

** "Witches" "Witch" was the same episode which had an ex-cheerleader turned witch as the ''villain''. Notably her daughter (who she is possessing) didn't want to be a cheerleader and doesn't join the squad once she's freed.



* An episode of ''Series/SoLittleTime'' has Riley wanting to join the cheerleading squad because "Being a cheerleader would make me really ''really'' popular" ([[AllGuysWantCheerleaders check]]). They're rather disgusted at her sister Chloe hanging out with a {{Goth}}, so they make her spray paint said {{Goth}}'s backpack ([[AlphaBitch check]]). [[spoiler:She does the deed, but feeling sorry for how {{Goth}} feels about her treatment, tells the AlphaBitch: "I wanted to be a cheerleader, but not this bad" before offering to buy {{Goth}} a new backpack. In black, of course]].

* Subverted with the Ashleys on ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'', as they're not shown as cheerleaders in the show, but they end up going to cheerleading camp in ''WesternAnimation/RecessSchoolsOut''. In the same movie, T.J.'s older sister [[BrattyTeenageDaughter Becky]] is one of these, as pom-poms can be seen in her room at one point.
