Added DiffLines:

* Envy from ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' does an amazing impression of a spoilt noble daughter while journeying to Coral; she even brought a full-sized bathtub with her that her Seguleh errant boys have to carry and clean. She is also travelling and fighting in a stark white dress and refuses to don something more practical. Though, she's actually quite bright, if a little ditzy.

Added DiffLines:

* Played with in ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'':
** Harry points out that there are bad people at both [[LowerClassLout ends of the spectrum]], but that there are [[AvertedTrope exceptions]] to each, Harry himself being one.
** A straight example would be Charlie, who bullies Eggsy throughout training for his upbringing, and is of enough standing for [[spoiler:his family to be invited to Valentine's plan]].

* Subverted in-universe in the LordPeterWimsey stories by Creator/DorothySayers: Lord Peter pretends to be one of these as a form of ObfuscatingStupidity when dealing with suspects, but also because it amuses him and irritates his relatives.

* Weekend Nachos occasionally targets trust fund punks in their songs, but none are more direct or venomous than "Fashionable Poverty", which savages crust punks with massive trust funds who choose to become vagrants and go out of their way to become as filthy and repulsive as possible while knowing that when they tire of that lifestyle, they can always go back to the cushy upper-class homes that they gave up for the hell of it.

A popular subtype, and the female counterpart to the usually male Upper-Class Twit, is the ''Airhead Heiress'' -- a young, brainless, fashion slave party girl heiress. [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed Any resemblance to Paris Hilton is purely coincidental]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'': After the first defeat of the Black Moon armies, Emperor Haghendorf bestows the apparently vacated title of Baron of Moork unto a foppish aristocrat who thinks his new subjects will just welcome him with open arms. Wismerhill makes a good show of this before capturing the clueless nobleman and seizing his own feudal estates.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/AlfredJKwak'': King Franz Ferdinand is at first a totally oblivious ruler who neglects his subjects, though when we first see him as a young man it's clear that he didn't particularly want to be king anyway. He spends most of his time in his lemonade baths and swindles Alfred out of a significant sum of money. When Dolf takes over in a fascist coup Franz Ferdinand demonstrates such a level of ignorance that Dolf and his cronies openly laugh at him before exiling the King. Subverted when this leads Franz Ferdinand to reconsider his own actions and he becomes a better ruler after he returns to Great Waterland.
