* Cheerleader in WebAnimation/TeenGirlSquad. Though, she's not always an actual cheerleader -- when questioned about why she's not leading cheers during a football game, she claims that "I'm only a cheerleader [[PomPomGirl in the way I dress]], [[GenreSavvy and the way I treat other girls]]".
** [[RetCon Although another has her claim "I'm off duty!" after being lifted by Cheerleader Brian]].
* ''WebAnimation/TheMostPopularGirlsInSchool'': [[MagnificentBitch Mackenzie Zales]], [[HairTriggerTemper Brittany Matthews]], and their rivals Tanya Berkowitz and Taylor [=McDevitt=] are ''damn proud'' of being bitter and bitchy cheerleaders. Trisha Cappelletti and Trisha 2 avert this by being some of the nicest characters in the show, despite both being rather ditzy {{Woman Child}}en. [[spoiler: In Season 3, Shay van Buren and Saison Margeurite have also joined the squad, but they're both comparatively nicer than their respective rivals.]]

* Pictured above, the Panthers from ''FiredUp'', who are clearly evil. Oddly enough, despite the [[AllGuysWantCheerleaders general theme of the film]], the trope is averted completely with everyone else.

* Penny ([[MesACrowd who alone makes up the entire cheerleading squad]]) from ''Film/SkyHigh'', though being a Creator/{{Disney}} movie the slutty part is left out.

* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''. Kim's [[SitcomArchNemesis archrival]], [[AlphaBitch Bonnie Rockwaller]], is truly the only mean-spirited cheerleader on the squad.
** Also, it was shown in one episode that Bonnie's [[FreudianExcuse home life isn't easy for her]] when we see that she has [[BigBrotherBully two older sisters who enjoy being mean to her]] by teasing and belittling her.

Of course, this isn't TruthInTelevision. Most cheerleaders are in the squad because they like singing and dancing, and are generally extroverted; bitchiness doesn't exactly mesh well with winning the crowd and teamwork is very important. Competition level cheerleading also requires fitness levels around the same as any other professional athlete and cheerleading is one of the most likely causes of female sports injuries due to the gymnastic stunts performed and lack of protective gear. Anyone performing at that level has the same drive and dedication as any other athlete. If you're looking for the cheer leading performance itself, or maybe just the dress worn while doing it, see PomPomGirl.

Added DiffLines:

* Kimberly from ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' is mostly an aversion. (Maybe ditzy at times, but not always.) She "retired" from it previous to the start of the series, but younger girls trying out tend to look up to her.

* An episode of ''Series/SoLittleTime'' has Ashley 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 Mary-Kate 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]].
