[[caption-width-right:350: The Formula for a Teenage Girl is as follows... And don't even get started with [[TheEighties a 1980s']] [[Film/TeenWitch version!]]]]

->''"Drama's a major food group for teenage girls."''

Think everyone in a DomCom with two X chromosomes is [[WomenAreWiser closer to Earth]]? Boy howdy, think again, 'cause you haven't met ''this'' kid!

A standard member of the DysfunctionalFamily, the Bratty Teenage Daughter is a natural offspring of the BumblingDad and [[WomenAreWiser his level-headed wife]] (who herself may have been one). The Bratty Teenage Daughter is a whiny, self-involved girl at That Age. She obsesses over the latest fashions and is incredibly boy crazy, often more so than her parents think. If she ever dates, expect her father to instantly turn into an OverprotectiveDad. Basically, she will either go around acting like a DramaQueen and {{wangst}}ing up over every minor little thing ("[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic My life is ruined!]]") or else she'll just roll her eyes exasperatedly at the "wacky" hijinks the rest of the family gets up to, often becoming a bit of a sullen killjoy in the process.

Her most valued personal possession is the phone. She talks (or texts) [[PhoneaholicTeenager endlessly]] on it with her friends, and breaks down when she's without it. In older media, this will lead to a confrontation with Mom where she tells her to stop tying up the phone lines. Today, these confrontations are likely to revolve around cellphone bills, or the loss of phone privileges as a punishment.

The natural enemies of the Bratty Teenage Daughter are assorted {{Annoying Younger Sibling}}s and anything else that upsets [[StatusQuoIsGod the status quo of her little world]] as she sits in her room listening [[HeadphonesEqualIsolation on her headphones]] to the latest music from [[TeenIdol that hot pop star]] she has [[HormoneAddledTeenager a huge]] [[CelebCrush crush on]]. She will be more averse to the HorribleCampingTrip than any other member of the family (and probably act like a CityMouse on that trip), near-continuously complaining about [[IBrokeANail breaking her nails]] or how much she would rather be at the mall.

She tends to be a supporting character, with the show's focus usually only being put on her in the event of a VerySpecialEpisode about drugs, underaged sex, etc. Often (but by no means always) an AlphaBitch or TheBrainlessBeauty. If she's not, expect her to hide it carefully since [[PopularIsDumb smart people are never cool at that age]]. Is usually one of the sisters caught up in TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry. She can easily become TheScrappy if she's whiny and grating enough.

If the teenage daughter is the show's protagonist, she probably won't be this character, or at least, not as extreme a version. May sometimes have a brother in the DumbassTeenageSon.


* One travel-related commercial featured a family with a seemingly somewhat [[TheQuietOne quieter]] version of this trope, with the mother marveling at how her daughter was actually ''[[WhenSheSmiles smiling]]'' [[PerpetualFrowner for once]] because she was having so much fun on vacation.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Bulma from ''Franchise/DragonBall''. For most of the first series, she never quite matured past her selfish teenage girl phase. She gets a lot better, but she never truly loses that bratty part of her personality.
* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia:''
** Taiwan is hinted to be one of these older brother [[ImmortalImmaturity China]], who tries to act as her BigBrotherMentor; in one of the CD dramas, she tells him rather roughly to shut up, and mocks him for being "old," as well as [[OneOfTheKids his attempts at being "young," "cool," and "hip."]] One of her hobbies, as listed on her profile, is even "annoying China."
** Iceland is a mild, gender-flipped example. He's somewhat melodramatic, pretends to be [[SugarAndIcePersonality apathetic to everything]] in an attempt to seem mature, complains about the other Nordics' eccentric behavior (as he considers himself the most [[IJustWantToBeNormal sane and mature of the group]]), and tends to push them away whenever they attempt to do something nice for him. He also refuses to honor his promise of calling his older brother "big brother" upon finding out that they are blood siblings out of stubbornness and pride.
--->'''Iceland''': I'm not down with you freaks enjoying being called that!
* Being a mild [[TheOjou Ojou]], Mimi Tachikawa in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' starts out this way. She grows out of it, though.
* Louise Halevy ''starts'' like this in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00''. When she ''stops'' being like that, it's through a heart-wrenching WhamEpisode... [[spoiler:and she ends up as a TykeBomb DarkActionGirl. She finds and goes to town on Nena Trinity who caused it. It takes her and Saji a LOT to get her better.]]
* Invoked by Aya in ''Manga/{{Nicoichi}}'', who was tired of being spoiled by her father and wanted him to treat her more normally. How much of this personality being [[BeneathTheMask actually an act]] is up to anyone's guesses though.
* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'':
** Usagi/Serena, who is also a rare example of the bratty teenage daughter ''also'' being the protagonist. Of course, she outgrows it, and while she never loses some of the milder elements (whining, mild childishness, etc.) she turns out to be the [[MessianicArchetype embodiment of pure heartedness and self sacrifice]].
** She is replaced in his role by her KidFromTheFuture Chibi-Usagi/Rini in the second ''Anime/SailorMoon R''.
%%* Taken to extremes by [[StreetUrchin Miyuki]] from ''Anime/TokyoGodfathers''.
* Maho from ''Manga/WanderingSon''. She starts out somewhat whiny but it gets worse as she progresses through middle school. She complains a lot and [[BigBrotherBully berates Nitori]] even more. Maho mellows out by her late teens and just acts somewhat moody.
* Mirai from ''Anime/TokyoMagnitude8'' is a pessimistic middle school girl with an attitude. She gets a reality check when an earthquake hits the area she is visiting with her little brother, and the experience helps her in the end.
* ''Manga/UchiNoMusumeNiTeODasuNa'': Clara's relationship with her mother, Athena, is strained because she's dealing with the pressure of being a superheroine at 17. And since she's been hiding it from her, she thinks her mom wouldn't understand. The irony being, Clara doesn't know that her mom is a retired superheroine and already knows about her secret.
* Lain's older sister Mika from ''Anime/SerialExperimentsLain'' acts like this early on. She's distant and arrogant. Mika never seems to care about Lain or her odd behavior much either. [[spoiler:After being {{Mind Rape}}d she's ultimately turned into an EmptyShell]].

* ComicBook/{{Stargirl}} of the ''ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica'' starts out this way in her original comic, ''ComicBook/StarsAndSTRIPE''. Being a superhero (and being on the oldest superhero team) helps her mature.
* Post-Crisis ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} subverted this in [[ComicBook/Supergirl2005 her comic series]]. Early on she behaved as a self-absorbed, fickle, whiny fifteen-year-old. After several issues she got over her attitude, and later it was revealed her early immature behavior was due to Kryptonite poisoning making her mentally unstable.
%%* Paige Fox of ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot''.
* Luann [=DeGroot=] of ''ComicStrip/{{Luann}}'', though these days she's a Neurotic College-Aged Girl
%%* Holly of ''ComicStrip/StoneSoup''
* Toshi in ''ComicBook/CrossingMidnight''. Her twin brother Kai thinks to himself that because she can't feel physical pain, she tries to get herself into trouble so she can feel pain, to feel human.
%%* ComicBook/JingleBelle who is the daughter of Santa Claus.

[[folder:Films -- Live Action]]
* Cher Horowitz from ''Film/{{Clueless}}'' is a good example of the smarter (if still shallow and naive) version and is also unusual in being the actual protagonist. She's also sweeter and more considerate than the usual example in several ways, in that she's constantly fretting about her father's stress levels and need to have a proper breakfast, and reaches out to make friends with the awkward and unfashionable newcomer to the school (for pretty shallow reasons at the time, but still).
* ''Franchise/StarWars'':
** Luke Skywalker in ''Film/ANewHope'' comes off as a male version at first, although it's pretty understandable (his foster aunt and uncle forbidding him to pursue his dream of attending the Imperial Academy and becoming a pilot like his father). He does whine and moan quite a bit throughout ''A New Hope'' and ''The Empire Strikes Back'', although by ''Return of the Jedi'' this behavior has completely disappeared. And through it all, he looks pretty sympathetic compared to JerkWithAHeartOfGold Han Solo. Ironically, his twin sister averts this entirely, as Leia is all business even at nineteen.
** Luke, even at his most sulky and brattish, has ''nothing'' [[Film/AttackOfTheClones on his father]] [[Film/RevengeOfTheSith at that age...]]
* The teenage daughters of the protagonist in ''Film/DanInRealLife'', who spend the entire movie whining and sulking about, in one case, not being allowed to drive the car, and in the other, being separated for a few days from the boy who is kind of their boyfriend. While their behaviour is kind of bratty, the girls do have bigger underlying issues and sympathetic reasons that were later revealed [[spoiler:Mom's dead, Dad is super overprotective.]] (as mentioned in the commentary to the film by the director).
* Walt's ''grand''daughter Ashley in ''Film/GranTorino''.
* Cassie Munro (played by teen pop singer [=JoJo=] who also appeared in ''Film/{{Aquamarine}}) in ''RV''.
* Sarah Gopnik from ''Film/ASeriousMan'' qualifies, thanks to her vanity and frequently obnoxious attitudes.
* This is {{deconstructed|Trope}}ion in the FilmNoir ''Film/MildredPierce''. Fiercely protective mother Mildred tries to do anything to please her daughter Veda, who is an unappreciative brat. Mildred ends up ruining her own life just to try to get love back from her daughter.
* Ellen Grape from ''Film/WhatsEatingGilbertGrape''.
* Audrey Griswald was very much this in ''Film/NationalLampoonsEuropeanVacation''. During practically all of this movie, all she does is whine about her missing her boyfriend and her weight.
* Lana, the snobby cheerleader, from ''Film/ThePrincessDiaries'' had this annoying attitude towards the title character. That, however, made Lilly (the title character's best friend) say "Lana got coned" as the mean girl turns to Vice Principal Gupta for assistance but the school's head honcho says "send it out for dry cleaning".
* Sarah from ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' begins the film acting like a complete spoiled brat who blames every problem she has on her stepmother and half brother. The events of the film mature her.
** Also a subtle {{deconstruct|edTrope}}ion. She's a spoiled brat with a roomful of toys and pitches fits, but her parents are emotionally unavailable at best and passive-aggressively snide at worst; her outbursts are obvious cries for attention. The movie ends [[spoiler: with Sarah learning to turn inward for comfort, without losing perspective in the real world.]] That, however, made the bratty girl wear some kind of extremely heavy formal gown during a dance sequence (as a prettiest princess similar to Mia Thermopolis).
* Sharpay Evans, unlike Sarah (from ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}''), also has a nasty, mean girl, violent, bratty, bossy attitude towards Gabriella Montez (in which Ms. Darbus, her mentor, gives the "Plucky Princess" detention) in ''Film/HighSchoolMusical''. That, however, made Gabriella spill some chili cheese fries on her pink long-sleeved blouse during a musical number of "Stick to the Status Quo". The only words that describe Sharpay Evans: SPOILED BRAT (because she owns a country club in the sequel).
* Lalita's youngest sister Lakhi in ''Film/BrideAndPrejudice''.
* Philippe's daughter from the 2011 French comedy ''Film/{{Intouchables}}''.
* The four heroines (from ''Film/{{Bratz}}'') are actually becoming good girls [[spoiler:but Meredith, the mean girl, says "YOU BRATZ!" right in front of them (as they are nothing but a spoiled brat foursome)]].
* The teenaged daughter in the 1962 atomic-war drama ''PanicInYearZero'', who characterizes the global thermonuclear war that has just devastated her hometown and killed all her friends and extended family with a whine of "This whole thing is a bore, ''such'' a ''drag''!"
* ''Film/TenderMercies'': Sue Ann, 18 years old, determined to rebel against her mother. First she looks up her father against Dixie's wishes, then she does worse by getting married to a hard-drinking musician 12 years older than her. Tragic consequences ensue.

* Claudia starts out this way in ''Literature/AThreadOfGrace''. [[TookALevelInBadass She grows out of it.]]
* Cleo, the title character's older sister in ''Literature/AmeliasNotebook''. Along with having awful table manners, too, from Amelia's point of view, at least.
* Meg Murry is this to a degree in ''Literature/AWrinkleInTime'', both before and during her adventures. Justified, or at least excused at times, [[spoiler:such as when her beloved little brother Charles Wallace is back at Camazotz caught up in IT]]. She is called out on this at various times, by persons from Principal Jenkins to Mrs. Whatsit.
* Lucy Pennykettle from [[Literature/{{Dragons}} The Last Dragon Chronicles]] has turned into this by the time of ''The Fire Eternal'', and there are few remnants of the CheerfulChild from the preceding books.
%%* Creator/EphraimKishon's daughter in his satirical short stories.
* Thea in Literature/{{Halvgudene}} is this to the point of almost being an EmoTeen, while [[DaddysGirl her father doesn't mind]], her siblings and the bullies at her school does...
* The members of Literature/TheBabySittersClub each show at least a few aspects of the trope from time to time.
* As one of the two main protagonists of ''Literature/GalaxyOfFear'', thirteen-year-old Tash Arranda doesn't display much of this - her family lived on [[EarthShatteringKaboom Alderaan]] and she's had to [[PromotionToParent step up to look after her little brother]], plus she's constantly being dragged into danger. With everything going on she has to be focused on surviving, what's left of her family, and, when there's time, TheForce. However, there are a few hints of the trope now and then - at the start of ''Planet Plague'' things are pretty quiet, and she locks herself into a refresher to study new pimples in the mirror and angst over them, thinking "They were as noticeable as orbital beacons." In ''The Brain Spiders'' her efforts to be "adult" cause her little brother to sigh "Teenagers!"
* ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'':
** Clary Fray from is often almost insanely self-absorbed. Even though she is unconcerned about things like popularity, she can be rather spectacularly heedless of other people's feelings, tends to jump into dangerous situations without thinking about it and will do whatever she wants even if it literally results in endangering the entire world. Luke calls her out on it one time, [[spoiler:when she tries to blindly Portal to Idris]] and she is shocked because he has never chastised her before.
** Isabelle Lightwood has some shades of this, constantly complaining and lashing out at her parents. [[spoiler:It turns out it's mostly a ploy to distract their parents from Alec's homosexuality]].
* In ''Literature/MostlyHarmless'' (the fifth book in the series of ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy''), Random Frequent Flyer Dent, daughter of Arthur and Trillian, acts this way, being somewhat unsurprising given both her upbringing and after being dumped on her father on some boring backwater planet when he barely knew she existed, so her mother (by then a reporter) is off covering a war.
* Dolores Haze in ''Literature/{{Lolita}}'' towards her mother and later to her stepfather Humbert Humbert. [[UnreliableNarrator Or so he'd have us believe.]] Humbert is so self-absorbed he fails to realise that much of this is Dolores lashing out at his nightly sexual abuse and daily control of every aspect of her life.
* The three younger Bennet sisters in ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudice'' are this, in their own different ways. Lydia is selfish, materialistic and cares nothing about the consequences of her actions or the trouble she caused for her family. What's worse is that she won't acknowledge her actions were damaging or wrong and this is helped along by her mother who has a similar personality type. Kitty is a milder version of Lydia and thankfully changes once Lydia isn't there to reinforce her old habits. Mary takes every opportunity to show herself off as intelligent and moral since she is the least attractive out of her sisters. Like Kitty, she is forced to socialize more when her sisters are married off and she feels better about herself when she is no longer compared to her prettier sisters.
* In ''Literature/BubbleWorld'', unlike her Agalinas self, Angel is definitely this in the real world.
* ''Literature/RallyRoundTheFlagBoys'' has Comfort Goodpasture, a curvaceous sixteen-year-old who cares infinitely more about Music/ElvisPresley than her schoolwork. Her TotallyRadical speech and her SexyWalk drive her conservative-minded single father up a wall.
* Played more positively with Wiktoria in ''Literature/ShamanBlues''. She's quick-talking, apparently very attached to her phone, has an attitude, insults her dad at their first meeting and refuses to call him "father"[[note]]To his relief, actually[[/note]], but seems rather intelligent overall.
* Melodía of ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'' has shades of this. While she's intelligent, she rarely thinks of things beyond her own needs and wishes, and throws a hissing fit when her boyfriend, who's doing his best not to collapse from exhaustion after several days of hard work, fails to hear her talking.
* Sophie Donnelly in ''Literature/{{Schooled}}'', acts like your typical boy-crazed, kitschy-teen-drama-watching, sixteen-year old. She also mistreats Cap, a house guest, seeing him and his hippie ways as an embarrassment. As [[CharacterDevelopment she starts growing out of this]], she acts more in a {{Tsundere}} way to Cap.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Astor from ''Series/{{Dexter}}''... just... wow. Although she does have a FreudianExcuse that gets worse as the series goes on. Also Deb in some flashbacks.
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Sansa hits most of the characteristics in Season 1, but later grows out of it. She apologises to Jon for being cold to him as a girl.
--> '''Sansa:''' Where are you from, anyway? The north or the south?
--> '''Septa Mordane:''' I come from a very small village in a
--> '''Sansa:''' Oh, wait. I just realized... ''I don't care''.
* Rae from ''Series/MyMadFatDiary'' falls into this stereotype in some of her interactions with her mum.
* Kelly Bundy of ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' started off as just this character, but later became TheBrainlessBeauty as well.
* Meadow during the first few seasons of ''Series/TheSopranos''. [[JustifiedTrope Of course, what teenage girl or boy ''wouldn't'' be a little bratty with parents like Tony and Carmela?]]
%%* Bridget Hennessy of ''Series/EightSimpleRules''. Kerry gets her moments too.
* Hilary Banks of ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'', although strictly speaking Hilary was in her twenties. In later episodes Ashley acts like this as well.
%%* Vanessa from ''Series/TheBernieMacShow'' in her worst days.
%%* Mallory Keaton from ''Series/FamilyTies''.
%%* Claire Kyle from ''Series/MyWifeAndKids''.
* Carly Shay from ''Series/ICarly''. Spencer on the other hand, whilst he's an adult male... he will act like this whenever Carly has to take on the TeamMom role.
%%* Janey Harper from ''Series/MyFamily''.
* Subverted by Maeby from ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment''. Her parents assume that she's just a moody teenager and make it a point not to question her motives or activities. In reality, she's secretly a high-ranking executive at a movie studio and tends to make out with [[IncestIsRelative two of her cousins]]. [[spoiler: Of course, it turns out she's not related to either of them.]]
* ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'', Colin Mochrie, as a news anchor, once had his teenage daughter (played by that week's female guest) appear on the news, and she was so comically immature that he responded, "Well, that was an experiment that went awry."
* Nadira, Ransik's DarkMagicalGirl daughter in ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce''. [[spoiler:Who actually becomes the MoralityPet for her father, during the GrandFinale: when he finds one of his attacks injured her by accident, he has a HeelFaceTurn.]]
** ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm'' similarly had Marah and Kapri, Lothor's Bratty Teenage Nieces. They're only related by marriage, but [[spoiler:it's apparently enough for Cam, Lothor's nephew, to consider them "cousins" and give them a second chance in the season finale.]]
* Charlene Sinclair from ''Series/{{Dinosaurs}}''.
* Dawn Summers from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' often borders on this trope, but a lot of it is understandable given what happens to her in season five. She grows out of it the last season. Buffy herself fit this trope on more than a few occasions.
* Carmen from ''Series/TheGeorgeLopezShow'' fits this trope to a T, especially the VerySpecialEpisode part.
* Alex from ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' and Megan of ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'' count but only if "bordering on supervillain" is allowed.
* Zoe from ''Series/{{Eureka}}'' at first, eventually turning into a DeadpanSnarker and possibly JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
%%* Haley from ''Series/ModernFamily''.
** For a strange, nerd twist on this, Alex also filled this trope. Compounded by the fact she often tries to be the exact opposite of her sister.
%%* ''Series/MySuperSweetSixteen'' is full of them.
* Emily Lightman from ''Series/LieToMe'' is usually an aversion of this trope, but bringing a boy home during school hours and complaining that "It's just sex" when her father figures it out suggests she's moving toward this.
* Alexis Castle in ''Series/{{Castle}}'' is a delightful inversion of this trope, being consistently both one of the most well-adjusted, mature, and down-to-earth members of Richard Castle's entire family. She does have her moments, but they're usually triggered by her father's immaturity(-stroke-{{overprotective|Dad}}ness) rather than the other way round.
** It's at times hinted that Beckett went through one of these stages as a teenage girl; the advice she often gives to Castle whenever he raises an issue he's having with Alexis often seem to come from the perspective of someone who knows first-hand exactly what a Bratty Teenage Daughter can be like. The death of her mother appears to have put a rather brutal end to it, however.
* ''Series/NoOrdinaryFamily'': {{Telepath|y}}ic Daphne starts out as this, but thanks to some CharacterDevelopment, she is becoming less so.
%%* Hillary from ''Series/TheWarAtHome''
* Lily Finnerty from ''Series/GroundedForLife''
* ''Series/KathAndKim's'' Kim was this when she was a teenager... and in her late 20s, she still acts like it, though with less emphasis on boys (she's too busy moping over husband Brett.)
* ''Series/{{Victorious}}''' Trina Vega. Complete with ItsAllAboutMe attitude.
* Lucy from ''Series/SingleFather'', justifiably so as she is lashing out in the wake of her mother's death.
* Scarlett from ''Series/SLiDE'', who gets called out on it by her father. A lot.
* Lindsey Willows from ''Series/{{CSI}}''. Like the time she hitchhiked downtown and got chewed out for it by her mother, Catherine.
* Sophie Stagner of ''Series/BurnNotice'' is a prime example of this, at least during most of her one episode.
%%* Juliet Martin from ''Series/{{Ringer}}''.
* Dana Brody from ''Series/{{Homeland}}'', although she becomes a more sympathetic character as the series progresses.
* Becky Conner from ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'' went through a really bratty period during her teen years.
* Angie, Clara's charge from ''Series/DoctorWho'' is constantly doing the YoureNotMyFather thing, even though Clara isn't her stepmother or even dating their father.
* ''Series/IHateMyTeenageDaughter'': Both daughters are {{Jerkass}} {{Alpha Bitch}}es who remind their mothers of the kind of girls they hated in high school, hence [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the title.]]
* In later episodes of ''Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond'', Allie Barone begins to manifest this trope, giving Ray another parental headache. Especially shocking as the series has followed Allie from the ages of six through fourteen and she has grown up with the show and her TV parents.
* ''Series/MadMen'': Roger Sterling's daughter Margaret in the early seasons: she has numerous fits about how little attention Roger gives her, and about him marrying Jane, which is a fair point but she acts like a child about it (Mona isn't nearly as bothered by it as Margaret). Also, by Season 6, Sally Draper fits the bill, mouthing off to Betty and going on a LARP/ModelUnitedNations trip to Manhattan basically to hang out with boys unsupervised (albeit she takes the actual [=MUNing=] more seriously than her committee partner, who hasn't done any research and is there ''only'' for the boys).
* Sue Sue Heck from ''Series/TheMiddle'' acted like this after puberty set in for the character, often being every bit as demanding and self-centered as big brother Axel. In fact all the Heck children tend to have bratty phases as the series progressed, though they do each settle a bit in later seasons.
* ''Series/TrueBlood'': Jessica Hamby, at first, after Bill Compton is sentenced to turning her by the magister. She's such a burden for Bill that he leaves her with Eric and Pam, until she proves too much for them to handle so they return her to Bill. It's not until season 3 that Bill begins to actively warm up to her.
* Vanessa from ''Series/TheCosbyShow''. While Denise showed signs of this too, Vanessa went from a smart but mischievous child to a teenager constantly pushing the boundaries of what she's allowed to wear, who she can date, where she can go, etc. The season 3 intro drives this home; Cliff does a silly dance with each family member, but when it's Vanessa's turn, she just stands there rolling her eyes (she rejoins the fun in later seasons).

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* Jeri Keene in ''ComicStrip/PreTeena'' is a classic of the type. Eleven year old Teena shows occasional signs of teetering on the cusp of pre-teenage brattiness.

* In ''Theatre/TheMoonIsBlue'', David Slater's daughter Cynthia seems to have many traits of this (phoning men at odd hours and bitterly complaining to her father after Don rejects her), despite being old enough to drink.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Wendy O. Koopa of the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' canon, especially in the ''ComicBook/SuperMarioAdventures'' comics and ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3'' animated series.
* Natalie from ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonDSIslandOfHappiness'', who loves to find ways to tease her meek older brother Elliott.
* In the survival horror game, ''VideoGame/CampSunshine'', even though there is a mass murderer lurking around who has killed almost everyone, there is one NPC girl, whose parents have made sure she got a luxury cabin, and who only cares about getting her heating fixed. Even when Jez, the player character, tries to reason with her about what's going on, she treats him like he works for her and demands that he help fix said heating.
* The WingedHumanoid Lady Celeste, daughter of Lord Azure and Lady Ariel in ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVIHeirTodayGoneTomorrow''. She can be quite an {{ungrateful b|astard}}itch when Alexander rescues her from the Minotaur. Of course, her parents are that way toward humans too.
* Severa from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' is this towards her parents at first glance, but unlike most examples [[InferioritySuperiorityComplex she has]] [[OrphansOrdeal plenty of]] [[InadequateInheritor good reasons]] [[ShellShockedVeteran why she's]] [[BrokenBird like that]]. Also, by the time of her A-rank supports with her parents, Severa does mellow out (slightly), and at least explains and admits to her mother why she's like that. This concludes with Severa openly telling her mother how much she loves her.
* Despite being 22, [[PlayerCharacter Michael De Santa's]] daughter Tracey still largely acts like this in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV''.
* Bass from ''VideoGame/MegaManClassic'' is a male example to his creator, Dr. Wily.
* ''VideoGame/BeyondTwoSouls'': Jodie in the "Like Other Girls" chapter wants to go out on a Saturday night but Nathan grounds her in her room. She proceeds to throw a tantrum, play loud guitar music to annoy Cole, and use Aiden to break stuff.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Summer Mighty of ''Webcomic/EverydayHeroes'' shows a bit of attitude [[http://eheroes.smackjeeves.com/chapters/70643/3-conflicts-and-alliances/ here]] with a CurseCutShort.
* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' with [[http://sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/20060901 Katie Zalia]].
-->'''Mrs. Zalia:''' How you've grown, Katie. My baby's a teenager already! ''And as a teenager you're supposed to be depressed and giving me the silent treatment!''
-->'''Katie:''' Ohhhh, yeah, sorry.
-->'''Mrs. Zalia:''' I mean, aren't you embarrassed by everything going on in this house? ''"What if my friends found out"'' and stuff?
-->'''Katie:''' ''Embarrassed?'' My mixed up family is the coolest ever! Yeah, it makes me a little weird at school... but nobody bugs me or I'd just have Oasis kill 'em!
-->'''Mrs. Zalia:''' ''*gasps* '
-->'''Katie:''' Mom, I'm kidding. Mom, I know you're sad and depressed, but if you'd just talk to me...
-->'''Mrs. Zalia:''' ''You wouldn't understand!'' ''*slams door*''
* Wendi Colt from ''Webcomic/{{Wootlabs}}'' - a humanoid lizard construct who, despite only being two years old, has all the markers of adolescent attitude.
* Diana in ''Webcomic/FurryExperience''. She has a tendency to take things without asking, feeling her "special projects" gives her some kind of right to it, especially her mother's good yarn which she's been told ''not'' to use. [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling She also tends to go after her older brother's stuff as well]].
* Gender flipped with Hector of ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' who is a bratty teenage ''son'' who does everything in his power to be cool while also deciding he's so unique that no one can understand him. He combines this with being the VampireVannabe AnnoyingYoungerSibling of a VampireHunter.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Though we never actually see her parents, Cheerleader from [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Teen Girl Squad]] definitely fits the bill.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/MacKenzieheartsu MacKenzieheartsu]] in her vlog. It turned out she was just acting and it was some ViralMarketing for Domino's Pizza.
* It turns out that WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick was like this, screaming and stomping up to her room when she didn't get her way.
* ''WebAnimation/TheMostPopularGirlsInSchool'': [[HairTriggerTemper Brittnay Matthews.]]
* ''WebAnimation/DrHavocsDiary'': [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Ally Havoc.]] Though she's considerably ditsier and a lot less violent than Brittnay Matthews.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Max Goof from ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie'' and ''An Extremely Goofy Movie'', as well as on occasion on ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'', qualifies as a male example. He cares about his popularity and image, loudly complains about minor inconveniences, and is somewhat materialistic, as shown when he expresses envy for his friend who has cool stuff but not a good home life. Most of the time this shows up, however, he learns to appreciate [[GoodParents what he has]]... [[AesopAmnesia for now]].
* Angelica in ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'' after being a BrattyHalfPint in ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}''. In the 1st show, there was Susie's sister Alisa, especially in "The Last Babysitter".
* Katie Ka-Boom of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''. She was more short-tempered and impatient then particularly bratty, and did try to obey her parents now and then.
* Katherine from ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' in her first appearances. She matures in later episodes though.
%%* Tammy from ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers''.
%%* Roberta from ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow''.
%%* Sissi Delmas of ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko''.
* Quinn Morgendorffer from ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'', as well as Sandi Griffin, who is also an AlphaBitch. Quinn, at least, grows out of it a bit.
* Candy of ''WesternAnimation/DaveTheBarbarian''. Dave and the other lampshade her many attributes with incredible familiarity.
* Judy Funnie of ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'' is this sometimes, when she's not being a CloudCuckooLander or CoolBigSis. Beebe Bluff too, in the Disney version, anyway.
* This was the original characterization of Meg Griffin from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', which was justified by the desire to gain acceptance from her high school peers.
* Judy Jetson of ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons''. She sometimes acts much like a typical rebellious American teenage daughter whose interests include clothes, hanging out with boys, and revealing secrets to her diary.
* {{Discussed| Trope}} In the ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' episode "A Leaf in the Wind" when Tenzin expresses frustration with his teenaged live-in [[BlowYouAway Airbending]] student, Korra (the fact she's the {{reincarnation}} of his father [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Aang]] provides a ''very'' odd family dynamic). After his daughters witness a particularly bad bout where Korra insults Tenzin's teaching skills, Tenzin tries to avoid the inevitable.
-->'''Tenzin:''' You ''must'' promise me your teenage years won't be like this!
-->'''[[CuteBookworm Jinora]]:''' [[DeadpanSnarker I will make no such promises]].
* Serenity Zilla from ''WesternAnimation/MyDadTheRockStar'', who's spoiled by the rich lifestyle of being a famous rock star's daughter.
* Candace of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''. High-strung, to boot. Though she's a more minor example. A more major one from the show would be Vanessa, but having an "evil" goofball for a father would do that to any girl.
* Becky Detweiler in ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' at times. By the end of [[WesternAnimation/RecessSchoolsOut the movie]], she gets better, and is back to the way she was for the DTV movie "Taking the Fifth Grade".
* On ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', Stan's sister Shelley has been this, but it has become progressively less and less covert.
* Gems in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' are TheAgeless, but some of them certainly [[ImmortalImmaturity look and act like teenage girls]]:
** Amethyst is the "rebellious teen" of the Crystal Gems and is frequently at odds with Pearl, the "mother" of the team.
** Flashbacks shows Pearl acting rather petulant when she was younger, mostly towards Greg, [[ClingyJealousGirl especially for things involving Rose]].
** After Lapis Lazuli is [[spoiler:defused from Malachite]], she has a consistent attitude of apathy and untrusting aloofness. [[SugarAndIcePersonality She shows a warmer side]] toward Steven and, eventually, Peridot.
** A flashback dream in "Jungle Moon" reveals [[spoiler:Pink Diamond]] to have been a mix of this and AnnoyingYoungerSibling to [[spoiler:Yellow Diamond, with Yellow Diamond acting like an [[AloofBigBrother Aloof Big Sis]] who gets fed up when her bratty fellow Diamond gets in the way of her work. Pink Diamond whines that she deserves her own army and colony since she's a Diamond and thus just as important as Pink Diamond. Yellow Diamond snaps that Pink Diamond sure isn't ''acting'' very important. The dream ends with Pink Diamond smashing a window in hurt frustration.]]
* Kitten from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', daughter of the supervillain Killer Moth, who forces her father to threaten Robin into [[FateWorseThanDeath taking her to her junior prom]].
* Debbie Thornberry from ''WesternAnimation/TheWildThornberrys'', though she's at least a little smarter than the average.
* Kootie Pie from ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3'' and ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld'' is the only [[DaddysLittleVillain Koopa Kid to make "King Dad" sweat via tantrum]].
* Amanda Duff, Elmyra's older sister from the ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' episodes, "Take Elmyra Please" and "Grandma's Dead".
* ''WesternAnimation/PeppermintRose'' has Rose start out as this, and she learns to put others' needs before her own.
