*** "The Card" revolves around Patrick getting a rare Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy card that [=SpongeBob=] is desperate to own. Patrick then proceeds to abuse the card in so many ways (using it as a lockpick, grilling it and eating it in a Krabby Patty, scratching his back with it) you'd think he's actually doing this all just to torture [=SpongeBob=], who gets increasingly stressed and worried about the card. And expectedly, after doing much more dangerous things with it (such as potentially smashing it or setting it on fire), when [=SpongeBob=] warns him, Patrick just says, "[[ObfuscatingStupidity SpongeBob, you can't always expect my usual brand of stupidity. I like to mix it up. Keep you on your toes]]." And Patrick flimsily makes it up to the TooDumbToLive [=SpongeBob=] by just giving him new cards. Most people would have ''at least'' demanded forgiveness for how he freaked out his friend.

*** And he gets worse in ''Omniverse'', with ''two'' episodes of him dodging responsibility for past misdeeds, acting like a jerk to Ben and Rook, and even pushing his deeds' consequences on them. ''Argit'' actually think he's out of line!

** And [[WhatCouldHaveBeen if the show had gotten a fourth season]], he apparently would've gotten even ''worse'': [[spoiler: taking over after Ultra Magnus dies, becoming a KnightTemplar with an authoritarian regime...]] Sheesh!

* Eustace from ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'' definitely fits this trope. He has never been nice to Courage the slightest bit no matter what the dog does for him. The episode "Ball of Revenge" is where Eustace was at his worse. He finally attempted to get rid of Courage by hiring the dog's past foes to ''kill him''! That's right. Eustace actually ''wanted the poor dog dead'' in that episode, which is sad since [[UngratefulBastard Courage had actually gone through all the trouble to save him in many other episodes]].

* ''WesternAnimation/IronMan'' saw 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, including getting into fights with other heroes over the suspected use of his tech and shutting down the Vault.

** Irony is he's a [[DracoInLeatherPants/WesternAnimation Draco in Leather Pants]], so the fangirls who actually build up the ''X-Men Evolution'''s FanDumb, interprets ''him'' as the only good member of the Brotherhood, despite the fact that, arguably, he's the most self-centred character the series. Apocalypse is a KnightTemplar who wishes for the world to become a Mutant utopia, SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}} is a WellIntentionedExtremist who wants to avoid another Holocaust, every other Brotherhood member has redeeming qualities (especially Avalanche), Colossus is an AntiVillain under {{Blackmail}}, Gambit is a hired Merc/thief who had some PetTheDog Moments, Sabertooth and Pyro are just plain crazy... but Pietro is a calculating, selfish dick who serves only himself (and his father isn't a sufficient excuse for some of the shit he pulls).

* Bender of ''Series/{{Futurama}}'' fame has always been a bit of a jerk, and that doesn't even take into account the fact that he's a criminal for numerous cases of thievery alone. Still, he isn't above a PetTheDog moments and can feel guilt for some of his harsher actions, and that doesn't even take into account [[TrueCompanions Fry and Leela really are to him]]. Later episodes, particularly in the show's UnCanceled era, increased his sociopathic tendencies however, where he goes so far as to commit outright murder and at one point even damns his own son to robot hell, something that disturbs [[EvenEvilHasStandards the Robot Devil]].

** Quagmire reached this level by his [[SitcomArchnemesis relationship with Brian]], such as his [[Hypocrite hypocritical]] rant against Brian in "Jerome is the New Black" (as said above), [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beating the heck out of him]] after he [[spoiler:unknowingly had sex with his just-transitioned dad]] in "Quagmire's Dad" and [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk faking an acceptance of his apology and running him over]] in "Tiegs for Two".
