"People like this don't exist in the real world. We have jerks but they aren't cartoonish movie-jerks who only say and do things designed to make the audience hate them."
Confused Matthew, in his review of Titanic

There are Jerkasses aplenty in fiction, some may have a softer side, or a Morality Pet; even those that don't can have at least some redeeming qualities.

Not so in this case.

The Flat Jerk is a character who's entire personality revolves around being as big a jerk as possible, whenever possible, even if there's absolutely nothing to be gained from it.
