* In one episode of ''{{Birdz}}'', we meet Riley Raven, a good-looking bad boy who does whatever he wants, and is considered a "bad egg" for it. We later learn that he acts this way because of his workaholic parents never having time for him.

* John Lennon was a drug addict, had a quick and fiery temper, and generally could be a downright JerkAss a lot of the time; but being a Beatle, he had no shortage of screaming fans, and Paul Mc Cartney has been quoted as saying of those who actually KNEW John, "[[EvenTheGuysWantHim Everyone]] was in love with John; [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold John was lovable]], John was a very lovable guy."
* Ian Curtis of JoyDivision fame.
* Peter Steele of TypeONegative fame.
* Based on his Draw My Life video, ShaneDawson is this a big way

%%* Roger Klotz in ''{{Doug}}''. He and Doug even get along once in a while, to show that he's not just a horrible jerk. He's also somewhat of a [[TheWoobie woobie]]. Sometimes, his mom doesn't spend a lot of time with him, and his dad lives in the next town over (his parents are divorced), AND lives in a trailer park (in the Nickelodeon version). Kinda makes you wonder why he started bullying in the first place.

Added DiffLines:

* In the 'Cinderella' side story from ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', Tarvek very nearly quotes this trope when he and Gil are [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20081121#.VvVu4OKLTIU arguing over who should play the prince]].
--> '''Gil:''' ''I'm'' the prince! I'm all tortured and driven by love!\\
'''Tarvek:''' ''Feh. I'm'' the misunderstood one with the mysterious agenda. ''Muy sexy''.
