** Squidward fits the role even better, simply being irritable and condescending about Spongebob's demeanor. A lot of the older fanbase has actually ended up sympathizing with Squidward over Spongebob, finding the former's irritation justified. Can you blame someone for disliking a neighbor who once blasted techno music for 12 hours?

* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable'': The Bank Teller during the "Shigechi's Harvest" arc ends up as a downplayed example. The heroes find a winning lottery ticket and try to cash it, but the Teller is suspicious of how a bunch of teenagers came across a winning ticket especially as the original owner's name is on it. He expresses a huge amount of joy at accusing them of stealing the ticket and tries to get them arrested which all together isn't unreasonable given the information he has. Though after they successfully tricks them, he apologizes, ashamed of the accusations, and happily pays them the money. They even agree to continue to use his bank to store their winnings and at the end of the day there was no real hard feelings.

** "Pretty" Ricky Conlan in ''Film/{{Creed}}'' is extremely abrasive and deliberately anatagonises Adonis at a press conference, almost to the point of being a [[{{Heel}} wrestling heel]]. However, he is also a clean fighter and, after narrowly winning on points, tells Adonis that he is [[WorthyOpponent the future of the division]], and his abrasiveness is somewhat justified by the fact that he's being forced into retirement, and that Donnie is getting a title shot on his second professional bout off the strength of his name, while Conlan had to scratch and claw his way up from nothing.

* The high-school teacher (played by Mark Metcalf) in Music/TwistedSister's "I Wanna Rock" and "We're Not Gonna Take It" videos. He acts harshly toward his students, yes, but he isn't exactly cruel to them; he actually seems to believe that they're "bad" kids and they really need his help. But his behavior is so angry and unreasoning that it's still a pleasure to see [[CoolPeopleRebelAgainstAuthority the "cool" kid finally shut him down]].

** Weevil might not count as he does cheat (he sabotages both Yugi's and Joey's decks) but Rex Raptor is a clean - if vicious - player who is also classified as a full fledge villain despite doing even less than Weevil, but being more of a jerk about it.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has several cases of Pokemon trainers who do nothing worse than being huge jerks and fighting against the protagonists with their Pokemon, which is perfectly normal in the Pokemon world. Quite often, they will [[DefeatMeansFriendship become nicer]] by the end of the episode.

* [[AdaptationalVillainy The human version of Filthy Rich]] serves a similar role in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsLegendOfEverfree''. He intends to buy out the titular Camp Everfree to build a spa and is generally unpleasant in his brief appearance, even to the point he doesn't really care about what happens to the camp, but it's well within his right to do so if Timber Spruce and Gloriosa Daisy can't pay the rent (which they can't) and that's simply a fact of the business world. [[spoiler:He also has no direct hand in Gloriosa becoming corrupted by magic and turning into [[BigBad Gaea Everfree]]; that was all on Gloriosa's part and he didn't even know about it]].

He even gives Gloriosa one more week to either get the money together (which he figured was unlikely) or prepare her goodbyes to the camp.

* Inverted with Sheriff Teasle (Brian Dennehy) in ''Film/FirstBlood'' (the first ''Franchise/{{Rambo}}'') movie, who actively antagonizes Rambo almost from the beginning, yet is ultimately portrayed as an AntiVillain at worst.

His deputy Galt was the one who started the whole mess by abusing Rambo while he was in custody.
