*** Gerald becomes even worse in Season 20, when it's revealed that he's the notorious internet troll "skankhunt42". He harasses girls online and photoshops dicks into the mouths of cancer survivors all "[[ItAmusedMe for the lulz]]". After he [[spoiler: accidentally drives a Danish Olympian to commit suicide]], Gerald sinks to new lows to avoid punishment, [[spoiler: including using his own son as a scapegoat for his actions]].

* ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'':
** Edward was a kind-hearted and patient engine in the earlier seasons, but at the start of season 6 and on wards, he is prone to rude and arrogant moments DependingOnTheWriter. As of season 17, he returns to his original personality.
** Since debuting in season 7, Emily started off as a kind and mature engine. At the start of season 8, she becomes bossy, rude, and haughty. Even the episode "Emily's Adventure" focuses on her learning how to be polite to others. She returns to her original personality in season 13, but she still has shades of her childishness.
** As of ''WesternAnimation/TaleOfTheBrave'' and Season 18, James has spiraled so high in terms of jerkass levels that it's actually hard to believe. He also did this in his appearances after "James and the Express".
** Thomas himself is exceptionally petty and insecure in ''WesternAnimation/SodorsLegendOfTheLostTreasure'', [[NeverMyFault blaming others for his accidents]] or ignoring their warnings of danger. After he tricks Ryan into taking bad coal, the sparks nearly set off a load of dynamite. Thomas manages to dump it down the cavern he fell into earlier in the film, but during the panic to get rid of it, endangers Ryan, and is scolded by the Fat Controller for doing so. This finally reins him back in. That, and the danger [[BigBad Sailor John]] poses.
*** In the same special, The Fat Controller also feels like this. In fact, some fans thought he was actually going to tell Thomas he had had enough of him and intended to replace and sell him. Though to be fair, his attitude throughout the special stems from the fact that Thomas is causing tremendous amounts of damage both physically and financially [[RealityEnsues (meaning Sir Topham Hatt has to pay for repairs to the damaged coaches, listen to complaints from angry passengers, and deal with the repeated delays to the construction of the new branch line)]] and is refusing to take responsibility for his actions. Given that, it's [[JustifiedTrope understandable that Sir Topham Hatt seems stricter than usual.]]
** Bill and Ben are known to be mischievous and bratty engines, but since their return in Season 17, they've become considerably nastier. This is especially noticeable in their treatment of Timothy.

* [[Toys/{{Bionicle}} Pohatu]] in the 2015 online animations was a silent and reserved no-nonsense badass (but as evidenced by the comics, was less stern around puppies). In ''The Journey to One'' cartoon, he becomes a brooding obnoxious jerk who's quick to voice his displeasure with things, and acts incredibly hostile towards his animal partner Ketar -- which is partially justified, as Pohatu despises scorpions, and Ketar happens to be one. On the other hand, the show has an inversion in the case of Kopaka. He was a major asshole towards his rival Tahu early on, but doesn't showcase any of that hostility here. That said, some fans may argue that the show's inconsistent portrayal of the characters is a case of DependingOnTheWriter or CharacterDerailment.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'':
** Buttercup's aggressiveness has been upped in the reboot. She does a lot of the fighting and is angrier than in [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls original show]], to the point where an episode has her sisters essentially staging an intervention to get her to calm down after she goes into a berserk rage where she severely destroys a festival and gives Bubbles a black eye. Even outside of fighting she does things like being the ClassClown when in the original continuity she only did that alongside other kids.
** Bubbles is CuteButPsycho in the reboot instead of being cute and sweet. She's incredibly prone to random bouts of anger for comedic reasons.
* Velma on ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' has been noted to have taken on Jerkass traits, but only because she can't get time with Shaggy to herself due to Scooby-Doo himself. She'll be a Jerkass to start then sadly wistful (to her mom: "Am I radioactive?"). In the heat of the "love triangle", Scooby had taken on the Jerkass label as well, being as pushy as Velma in forcing him to "choose". Currently, now that Shaggy chose him, Scooby's remorseful at how sad Velma is over it and is trying to make up, but conversely, Velma's {{Jerkass}} level has risen with the rejection, making a reconciliation difficult.
** Episode 15 shows that she might be getting over herself a little; she resents Scooby but she draws the line at his getting hurt.
** Daphne had one temporarily in Episode 6, becoming a Hex Girl and stating that her new name was Crush. She reverts back to normal at the end.

* Charmcaster in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' used to treat her golems (or whatever they were) like they were pets. In ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'', she can't go a few minutes without insulting the giant ones she has now for everything they do. Also, in the original series, while a troublemaking bitch, she wasn't murderous or out to take over the world. In ''Alien Force'', she does try to conquer the world, and expresses a gleeful desire to kill Gwen.

Then, starting with Ultimate Alien and Omniverse, Charmcaster goes back to being power hungry until "Third Time's the Charm" where Ben as Kickin' Hawk defeats her.

* ''WesternAnimation/IronMan'' was its title hero adopt many of the less-admirable traits the comic Tony Stark had, as he decided to start keeping secrets and even faked his death without telling anyone about it, which caused Force Works to dissolve until the series finale. The "Armor War" adaptation had Tony commit many of the same actions he did in the comic version.

** Timmy himself has become more of a heartless asswipe each season. But thankfully not as awful as Norm the Genie's clone Timmy, whose extreme jerkiness causes his fairy god parents to quit their jobs. Timmy [[CharacterRerailment did seem to get better in seasons 8 and 9]]...only to revert to being a {{Jerkass}} (perhaps even worse than before) in Season 10.

* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}} 2: Legends of Metru Nui'', Matau's just into the whole hero deal for sheer excitement, meanwhile Onewa seems to take every opportunity to belittle his companions, especially their leader Vakama. In the following movie, ''Web of Shadows'', Onewa's demoted to an even more minor extra, and Matau takes over his role of a {{Jerkass}}, putting such a stress on Vakama with his constant complaining that it leads him to do a FaceHeelTurn. Matau makes up for it in the end by realizing how mean he was and bringing Vakama back to their side.
