* Due to generations of being cared for by Awakened ({{Mummy}}) servants, human nobles of Vabbi in ''VideoGame/GuildWars2'' are incapable of almost everything. For one quest in the Domain of Vabbi, you serve as a butler to them and teach them how to do basic household tasks like gardening and cleaning up after themselves, and amusing them by making [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible "art"]] out of mundane junk. One NPC has no idea how to empty a chamber pot, with [[ToiletHumor unfortunate results.]]

* Nobles in ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' are mostly useless in gameplay, and make often difficult or impossible demands. [[http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/Unfortunate_accident Finding ways to kill them off]] solves many problems. [[VideogameCrueltyPotential And it's entertaining to boot!]] Averted for ''some'' of the nobles in that while the [[ComesGreatResponsibility Chief Medical Dwarf]] is a position in the nobles screen, the appointment of a dwarf to said position allows access to more comprehensive health information. Additionally the top noble will typically be the [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething dwarf]] who meets with foreign dignitaries.
* In the ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' series Morrigan Aensland starts out like this causing her guardians constant worry. Its only after her adopted father dies, and she combines with Lilith that she becomes responsible..

dignitaries. Finally, some of the nobles have more reasonable tastes, covering things that are easy to make or you actually do make often. Such nobles are usually kept, because a guy that likes iron and shields is incomparably better to yet another one of those twits that demands crystal glass when there's no sand anywhere in the goddamn map.

* ''WebAnimation/FreedomToons'': The European Union is depicted as an out-of-touch aristocrat who worships St. Merkel of the Migrant and doesn't want the United Kingdom to leave the organization because "[[MadnessMantra it's racist it's racist it's racist it's racist...]]".

* Chloe from ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' is actively cruel to anyone she thinks is below her. Which is basically everyone except her classmate Adrien (A fashion model). She leans on her dad (the Mayor of Paris) to get basically whatever she wants, all while actively thinking that everyone loves her.

* ''Franchise/DynastyWarriors'''s Yuan Shao has one constant and defining character trait: his unerring belief that he's the best and most deserving to rule on account of his "noble" lineage (though not mentioned in the games' story, the preceding four generations of his family had served in at least one of the Han Empire's three highest posts), and declares everyone else outside of his army to be lowly peasants.

* Lindsay Howard is one of Literature/PhryneFisher's unending string of lovers. He is extremely rich, well-meaning and not vety bright; all of which he cheerfully admits. He is baffled by Phyrne's ongoing refusal to marry him.

** Also from Discworld there's Lieutenant Blouse in ''Discworld/MonstrousRegiment'', initially a hopeless pen-pusher who desperately wants to be [[[[Literature/Sharpe}} Richard Sharpe]]. He later turns out to be something of a CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass.

* A large portion of the cast of WesternAnimation/BeverlyHillsTeens could count as this, as they are all so rich and pampered that they have no idea how to perform basic tasks. In practice though this best applies to Bianca and Pierce, the most commonly antagonistic characters, as in addition to their wealth and privilege, they tend to be snobby, thoughtless, and rude.
