* PlayedWith for Jessie, James and Meowth in Pokemon fanfic ''Fanfic/{{Symbiosis}}'', while they are largely innocent and misguided, they are still just as dangerous as the rest of Team Rocket.

* Subverted in ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry''. None of the protagonists are evil on default but sometimes they become villainous [[spoiler:due to a HatePlague]]. Mion is the only protagonist, besides SixthRanger [[spoiler:Hanyuu]], who has never killed anyone in any arc. However, this doesn't mean she hasn't actually killed anyone. According to one of the [=TIPs=], in an unseen [[spoiler:world]] she became a ClingyJealousGirl towards Keiichi and [[MurderTheHypotenuse killed the other girls]] due to seeing them as "rivals" for him.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''ComicBook/UncannyXMen'' vol.2, when Scott creates what he calls "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyfast Extinction Team]]" -- a group of the most powerful and dangerous members of X-Men to perform large-scale heroic acts, as a warning to everybody willing to attack X-Men by showing what can they do. He even directly calls them weapons of mass destruction. The team is made of himself, Storm, [[CanonSue Hope]], Emma Frost, Colossus (who had recently became TheJuggernaut), Magik (frequent Token Evil Teammate of ComicBook/NewMutants), ComicBook/SubMariner and SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}}. Storm points out that in entire team only her, Hope and Scott haven't been, at least once in their life, supervillains and considering he just compared X-Men to North Korea, he doesn't count.

* In ''ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms'', Raya has been given AdaptationalVillainy as she is now a part of The Stingers. However, she doesn't act like a villain. Raya is the only one in her band not to be a self-centered jerk. [[spoiler:She [[HeelFaceTurn later joins]] Jem's band.]]

[[BlackAndGreyMorality For anyone familiar with the work this takes place in]], this sets her up as the {{buttmonkey}} of the group.

* Basically the only gods in GreekMythology who aren't JerkassGods are [[LovableRogue Hermes]], [[MommasBoy Dionysus]] and, [[EverybodyHatesHades ironically Hades]]. All of whom you should never piss of, however, as they are still gods. Dionysus in particular can drive men and women into frenzies that makes them lose any sense with reality and sic them onto people as shown in the tragedy '''''The Bacchae'''''.

*''Film/BabyDriver'': Baby is quite easily one of these, as he's forced into the bank robbing business via threats from his boss, returns things like purses when he's forced to hijack cars, actually ''apologizes'' for doing crimes, and generally does not enjoy his job at all.

* Sword Man from ''VideoGame/{{Megaman8}}'' openly admits he has no qualms with Mega Man; He's simply been programmed to destroy him. He even ''compliments'' Mega Man with his dying words before exploding.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'':
** Tornadus and Thundurus from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' are a pair of JerkassGods who delight in causing mischief and mayhem across Unova. The third of their ilk, Landorus, is far more benevolent than the two, providing fertile land for farmers and actively putting a stop to the pair's rampages when they start.
** In ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', the [[EldritchAbomination Ultra Beasts]] are, if not necessarily evil, a destructive threat to both humans and Pokémon. The one exception to this is Cosmog, who's less dangerous and far more friendly than other Ultra Beasts. By extension, [[spoiler:its evolutions, Solgaleo and Lunala,]] also fall under this trope.

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series, the defining characteristic of Vault-Tec was their disturbing social experiments on the people in their Vaults, shelters to hold people if the Apocalypse ever happened (which it did), in order to gauge their reactions. These range from vaults of one men and all women, to elaborate nightmares like filling the vault full of white noise, or telling the dwellers they must sacrifice one person a year or all perish. Then, there was Ted Huntly. Vault 88, which was designed to prototype materials, had experiments developed by him that actually made life better for people, such as automated eye exams, and extremely tasty soda. Naturally, everyone at Vault-Tec hated him.

there was [[OnlySaneMan Dr. Ted Huntly. Reilly]], introduced posthumously in [[VideoGame/Fallout4 Fallout 4: Vault-Tec Workshop]]. Vault 88, which was designed to prototype materials, materials for other Vaults, had experiments developed by him he and other researchers, most of which would essentially [[NotTheIntendedUse weaponize ordinary civilian items]]. For example, one experiment in the Vault involves a soda fountain and slipping into it either mind control chemicals [[GettingSmilesPaintedOnYourSoul to bliss people out of their skulls]] or diet suppressants that actually [[GoneHorriblyRight can cause people to starve to death]]. However, Ted missed the memo that he was working for [[EvilInc Vault-Tec]], apparently, as all of his developments just made life better for people, such as Vault Dwellers, creating stuff like automated eye exams, exams and extremely tasty soda. soda that was better tasting than Nuka-Cola ([[CutLexLuthorACheck both of which could've made Vault-Tec billions]]). Naturally, everyone else at Vault-Tec hated him.''hated'' him, with several of his colleagues literally wanting to have him [[ReassignedToAntarctica Reassigned To Antarctica]].

** Speaking of Umbrella's forces, the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service is comprised of convicted war criminals and mercenaries and home to some ''purely'' evil and psychotic people like Nikolai, but seems to contain a few of these. Carlos Oliviera is the ''one'' known member of the unit who, despite having a DarkAndTroubledPast, is a genuinely heroic man who actually wants to rescue the surviving citizens of Raccoon City and is visibly distraught by the revelation that Umbrella actually ''caused'' the viral outbreak. Other characters like Mikhael and Murphy might count as well, but aren't given enough development to know for sure.
