[[caption-width-right:320: [[OhNoYouDidnt Oh, no you]] '''[[OhNoYouDidnt di-in't]]'''!!]]

->''I got this black chick that don't know how to act\\
She's always talking out her neck, making her fingers snap\\
She says, "Listen, Jiggaman, I don't care if you rap\\
You better R-E-S-P-E-C-T me"''
-->-- '''Music/JayZ''', "Girls, Girls, Girls"

Since the era of Jim Crow and the CivilRightsMovement, black people were more visible and could be more outspoken -- to a point, particularly if they were female. To illustrate this, sassy [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mammy_archetype "Mammy"]] figures could scold the family they worked for and playfully berate their employers (so the authors could show that Blacks were not being oppressed). And because of the feminism movement, this was especially the case for black women. [[TwoferTokenMinority Combine these]], and you get the sassy black woman. It started with the heroines of {{blaxploitation}} movies, like ''{{Coffy}}'' and ''FoxyBrown'' (both played by PamGrier), and continued into the 1980s.

She's defined by her vivaciousness, humor and joie de vivre, and can make a good counterpoint to the more grim or snarky members of the cast. In complete contrast to her other variation, is not only a pleasure to be around, but is also so the go to girl for advice and help. These characters usually make good leaders, because though generally fun, insightful, they are still firm in decisions, trustworthy, and speak their minds. Also like the SpicyLatina, the character will usually be sexually liberated and have no qualms acting in a sexual manner, though usually in a less pronounced manner. The positive version is now portrayed a lot more than the negative version, mainly because of the UnfortunateImplications, that portraying black women in only this way had. It's also rather common for the positive variant to be the OnlySaneWoman of a group, in which case her "sass" will be more like "[[DeadpanSnarker exasperated sarcasm]]".

The odds that she's a FagHag are directly proportionate to [[{{BBW}} her weight]]. Arguably the DistaffCounterpart to the ScaryBlackMan, though she can be quite scary herself when pissed off. Might also be a white character's BlackBestFriend. Close cousin to the SpicyLatina.

There is a variation on this, more subdued but no less expressive: the regal DeadpanSnarker, who will often be well-spoken and articulate, with a more highbrow vocabulary and a regal, imperious manner of expressing herself, but still willing to toss subtle (or unsubtle) barbs and make herself heard. Perhaps the best known of this "African Queen" variation is the X-Man {{Storm}}.

It's quite easy for the character to become an EthnicScrappy, especially if she is the TokenMinority.

!!Strong, Independent Examples That Don't Need No Trope! *snap*

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Advertising]]
* A fried chicken restaurant in Philadelphia invokes this trope by having the cashier be a sassy black lady who'll insult you if you take too long in ordering, amongst other things. The place has loyal customers, and tourists go just for the experience.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comics]]
* [[ComicBook/SuicideSquad Amanda Waller]]
-->'''Amanda Waller:''' ''([[CrazyAwesome While threatening murderous convicts to back down]])'' I am fat, black, and menopausal. You do NOT want to mess with me!
* One of ComicBook/BlackPanther's Dora Milaje (personal bodyguards) was a Sassy Black Woman, introduced giving [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk The Hulk]] a CharacterFilibuster about social injustice.
* T'Challa's sister Shuri, and current Black Panther.
* ComicBook/{{Vixen}}, even on her worst days is a sassy, level headed woman. Which led to interesting verbal conflicts with Amanda Waller, noted above, when they bickered at the time Vixen served in her ComicBook/SuicideSquad.
* Natasha Irons, Vaporlock, ComicBook/{{Steel}}'s niece.
* {{Ant}}, or possibly sassy girl, it is hard to tell.
* Misty Knight, mainly because of her no nonsense attitude.
* Anissa and Jennifer Pierce (Thunder and Lightning), the daughters of hero ComicBook/BlackLightning.
* Raquel Ervin, Rocket from ''ComicBook/{{Icon}}''.
* Bumblebee from ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' and ''Comicbook/DoomPatrol''.
* Agent 355 from ''ComicBook/YTheLastMan''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* Creator/WhoopiGoldberg in many of her roles. ''SisterAct'' for example.
* Any role played by Mo'nique. (Except in ''[[Literature/{{Push}} [=Precious=]]]'', in which she won an Oscar for playing one [[PlayingAgainstType VERY SCARY]] EvilMatriarch.)
* Music/QueenLatifah in most of her roles. Hell, make that every female rapper who ever appeared in a movie.
* Inverted in the start of ''Film/LastHoliday.'' Georgia Byrd is shy and timid, and it's her petite (white) friend, Rochelle, that is constantly trying to push her out of her shell with antics like yelling her crush's name across the department store. Once Georgia's CharacterDevelopment kicks in, though, this trope is in full swing.
* ''Film/{{Domino}}'' had a whole crew of bank-robbing sassy black women.
* The impound lot attendant in ''DudeWheresMyCar''.
* As has ''SetItOff'' (Including Latifah again).
* This was played deadly straight with the health insurance lady in 2004's ''Film/{{Crash}}'' (played by Loretta Divine, another actress famous for this role). Granted, the way the racist policeman treated her, this wasn't "sassyness" so much as perfectly reasonable behavior. However, even the most enlightened viewer couldn't help but wince at the name "Shaniqua Johnson".
* Wanda Sykes in any role she's ever played. She's a lot like this in real life as well.
* Abernathy and Kim from the latter part of ''Film/{{Grindhouse}}: Death Proof'' qualify, Kim more than Abernathy. And Jungle Julia.
* The 2008 drama ''Fireproof'' has an entire posse of these characters working at the hospital. Of course, they spend an inordinate amount of time gossiping about the (white) heroine's love life.
* Effie White in ''{{Theatre/Dreamgirls}}''
* The Chorus Girls from ''Film/LittleShopOfHorrors'', and their {{Exp|y}}ies, the Muses in Disney's ''Disney/{{Hercules}}''.
* The Dynamites and Motormouth Maybelle from ''{{Hairspray}}''. Extra points since the latter is played by Queen Latifah in the latest film.
* In ''NationalTreasure'', Abigail meets one while hiding from a goon.
* Possible early example: Annie the maid in ''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife'', who certainly wasn't shy about speaking her mind. "I heard it; it's about time one'a you lunkheads SAID it!"
* Mammy, as played by Hattie [=McDaniel=], from ''Film/GoneWithTheWind''. She does such an awesome job as Mammy that she won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar that year. What a character.
* Hattie [=McDaniel=] reprised that exact role for ''Film/SongOfTheSouth''.
* ''Film/JackieBrown'', by Creator/QuentinTarantino. The film is a [[GenreThrowback throwback]] to movies like ''Film/{{Coffy}}'' and ''Film/FoxyBrown'' and also stars Creator/PamGrier as the epononymous Jackie Brown.
* Creator/RosarioDawson has been called by some the Y-Generation's PamGrier.
* Terry from ''Film/AngelsRevenge''.
* Dre's mother in the 2010 remake of ''Film/TheKarateKid''.
* TylerPerry's Madea.
* Ronnie's wife in ''Film/HalloweenH20TwentyYearsLater''.
* An odd variation, in ''Film/PsychoBeachParty'' Chicklet's second SplitPersonality is one of these... even though Chicklet is a white surfer chick.
* ''Film/{{DEBS}}'' has the team's leader Max.
-->'''Max:''' Who's your best friend?\\
'''Amy:''' ''You'' are my best friend.\\
'''Max:''' And what did I say to you the very first day at the Academy?\\
'''Amy:''' That's my bunk, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch]].
* [[TheVoice Honey]], Frozone's wife from ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles''.
* Maggie from ''Film/Thir13enGhosts'', who spends most of the film being a complaining and ineffectual baby sitter but accidentally saves the day in the end.
* Most of character actress Jennifer Lewis' roles fall into this category.
* Jesus's girlfriend Chita in ''NextDayAir'' is this trope crossed with SpicyLatina.
* Trixie's maid Imogene in ''Film/PaperMoon'' is a subdued example; while she won't sass Miss Trixie to her face, she doesn't hesitate to perform small acts of subversion, such as recklessly tossing the bags right after Trixie warns her to be gentle with them.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Mammy from ''GoneWithTheWind'' is awfully outspoken, especially considering the fact that ''she's a slave in the first part''.
* Topsy and Cassy from ''UncleTomsCabin''.
* Lula in the ''StephaniePlum'' novels is a fellow bounty hunter. She's a larger woman who wears tight, brightly coloured spandex, and tends to provide running commentary on what's going on. Her attitude can annoy Stephanie at times, but she's always there when the chips are down.
* OlderThanPrint: Perhaps the most unlikely example of this is the eponymous Brunhild the Moor, official prosecuting attorney for the goddess Venus, in a [[TheLateMiddleAges 15th century]] German poem, ''Die Mörin'', who spends most of the poem shamelessly abusing the author-hero, Hermann von Sachsenheim.
* Jessica in the ''Literature/BetsyTheVampireQueen'' series. Also the heroine's BlackBestFriend.
* Ray Epps' wife in the novelization of ''[[Film/{{Transformers}} Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen]]'' fits this. Also a bit of a CrowningMomentOfAwesome in that she managed to get the good guys a piece of very vital, hard-to-relay-without-getting-caught information under the guise of wanting her husband to pay for plastic surgery.
* Kyra Davies from the ''AllysWorld'' series fits the trope, but is portrayed almost unwaveringly positively.
* Ardelia Mapp: Clarice's roommate at the FBI Academy in ''TheSilenceOfTheLambs''
* Shaunee and Kramisha from ''Literature/TheHouseOfNight''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''TheJeffersons'': Florence Johnston (Marla Gibbs), who was outspoken and not afraid to speak her mind ... especially to her boss, George. Much of the humor came from the chemistry between Sherman Hemsley and Gibbs. To a lesser extent, Louise (Isabel Sanford) also stood her ground, particularly to George.
* There was a ''SaturdayNightLive'' skit about ''TheView'' where "Barbara Walters" was calling out all the stereotypes that the hosts fit into. Star Jones was "a sassy black woman like I've seen on TV."
* Maya Rudolph has been known to play this type of character. She tends to go beyond merely being "sassy" and just be downright rude.
* ''ThirdRockFromTheSun'' further combines this with SassySecretary, and Nina is the result.
* Tara, the BlackBestFriend from ''Series/TrueBlood''.
* ''NoahsArc'': Similar to the Lafayette example above, the feminine, outspoken, sassy Alex fits the trope flawlessly.
* Deputy Raineesha Williams from ''{{Reno 911}}''
* In ''UglyBetty'', Ignacio's case worker is a sassy black woman who falls in love with him, much to his chagrin.
* Mahandra from ''{{Wonderfalls}}''.
* Harriet Winslow, the elevator operator, in ''PerfectStrangers''. ''FamilyMatters'' was originally supposed to be a show centering on her, since she was a particularly popular Sassy Black Woman. [[SpotlightStealingSquad It]] [[AscendedExtra didn't]] [[ExtravertedNerd work]]. Seems to be a family trait, because both Estelle Winslow ("Mama" Winslow) and Laura are textbook examples of the Sassy Black Woman Syndrome.
* Patti in ''EliStone'' (also a SassySecretary).
* Willona Woods of ''GoodTimes'' - the TropeCodifier.
* Helen of ''Series/DrakeAndJosh''.
* Nurse Laverne Roberts of ''Series/{{Scrubs}}''. (mmmmmmmhmm!)
** Invoked and discussed in "My Best Friend's Mistake" when [[SpicyLatina Carla]] and Laverne lecture J.D. on why he is not allowed to give attitude.
-->'''Carla:''' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueygWycRrWg First, you do the head, then you do the finger, then you talk through the nose...and then you give a lot of attitude. That's how it works. But if you're not from there, you don't understand, so I'm not gonna even 'axe' you-]]
* Rochelle, the mom, from ''EverybodyHatesChris''. Tichina Arnold's character on ''{{Martin}}'' was pretty much the same.
* Heylia in ''Series/{{Weeds}}''. One episode begins with her busting Conrad's balls about something and segues directly into Nancy lecturing Shane. It's made clear that Heylia gives Conrad less space than Nancy gives Shane, even though Shane's eleven and Conrad's a grown man.
* Original Cindy on ''DarkAngel''.
* The Chief from ''Series/WhereInTheWorldIsCarmenSandiego'' is a non-JiveTurkey-ing version of this. Lynne Thigpen was ''good''.
* Rosita from the 2008 ''Series/DoctorWho'' Christmas special.
** Queen Nefertiti from the episode "Dinosaurs On A Spaceship" is a more regal example, but can hold her own with the Doctor and the Ponds in the banter department.
* Destiny in ''OneLifeToLive''; one of the more positive examples as he was introduced as a {{Foil}}/girlfriend for Matthew just as he's going through a ''very'' grim plotline.
* Prosecutor Caroline Julian on ''Series/{{Bones}}'', in all her scene-stealing glory, is very much this.
* Saaaaaandra Clark on ''227''.
* Regina and Lovita on ''TheSteveHarveyShow''.
* Mercedes, of ''Series/{{Glee}}''.
-->'''Mercedes:''' [[LampshadeHanging Why does everyone assume I'm angry all the time? It's called being sassy.]]
** Wade Adams as eir [[{{Transsexual}} female alter ego]] Unique.
* Bunifa Latifah Halifah Sharifa Jackson on ''Series/{{MADtv}}''
* The hosts of ''Reality Check'' and the mother from ''That's My White Mama''.
* Rose, of ''Series/{{Lost}}''.
* Two episodes of ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' feature "Dr" Mary Thomas, initially hired as a part-time producer for Frasier's own show but whose witty interruptions, humorous asides and home-spun wisdom quickly come to dominate his show. Much mileage is wrought from Frasier's procrastination over putting a stop to this as he's terrified of being thought of as racist.
* Clarice from ''BostonLegal'' - even though Clarice was just a persona (and costume) adopted by super-shy ''man'' [[WholesomeCrossdresser Clarence]], Clarice was pretty much a stereotype of a sassy black woman.
* Shirley in ''Series/{{Community}}'' (when she's not [[GlurgeAddict overdosing on cute]]). Unlike most Sassy Black Women, she's quite well-rounded (especially for a half-hour SitCom). Referred to as such in S01 E22 . "Oh No! Sassy Black Schmitty is out of the group"
--> '''Dean:''' Shirley. The voice. Can you make it more...I thought it would be more sssss...what's another word that means more "happy threatening?"
--> '''Shirley:''' The word he's looking for is "sassy." He better pray he don't find it."
** Honestly, while she does have her moments of sassiness, mostly in the [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness beginning of the first season]], she's usually non-confrontational/passive aggressive. Her defining traits are that of a StepfordSmiler with a HairTriggerTemper.
* Angie, Tracy Jordan's wife on ''Series/ThirtyRock'', is one in spades.
* Marion Moseby's niece Nia in ''TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody''.
* Roxy from ''HannahMontana''.
* Judy, Robert's partner on the police force in ''EverybodyLovesRaymond'', is an example of this trope.
* ''Series/{{Monk}}'' had Sharona get a friend from her creative writing class to replace her temporairly while she [[ItMakesSenseInContext was suffering from a murderer's plot to make her think she was crazy]].
* Basically everyone on ''Girlfriends'' at one time or another, but mostly Toni.
* Mrs. Freeman, Will's boss' [[SassySecretary secretary]] on ''WillAndGrace''
* Aunt Viv on ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'', although more [[TheOtherDarrin when she was played by]] Janet Hubert-Whitten than when she was played by Daphne Maxwell Reid. Never as much as her sister Helen, played by Jenifer Lewis:
-->'''Aunt Janice:''' ''(about her white fiance)'' I guess I was hoping...no one would notice?\\
'''Aunt Helen:''' Honey, who'd you think you was bringin' him home to, Stevie Wonder?
* Roz of NightCourt partially subverted this, being, basically the [[ScaryBlackMan Scary Black Woman]]. She was more of a DeadpanSnarker, but could be quite sensitive and shy compared to Cloudcuckoolander Bull.
* ''Series/TheParkers'' are made of Sassy Black Women.
* From what little we see of Doakes' family (his mother and sisters) in the TV version of ''Series/{{Dexter}}'', they're ''all'' sassy.
* One of the earliest examples on TV was Geraldine Jones, a recurring character played by Flip Wilson (in drag) on his [[TheSeventies 1970s]] sketch comedy show. She originated the expression "What you see is what you get."
* Tasha Mack on ''Series/TheGame''. In a rare display on this trope, she's repeatedly called out and mocked for her behavior. Though everyone who does is only doing it in jest, there is at least one example of her sassyness causing her multi-episode relationship to fall out. Tasha Mack is easisly the most negative version of this trope there is. Not only is she loud, she's also negative, jeolous, profane, ignorant, racist, over bearing, and generally a [=Bitch=], as stated above.
* Maxine, Khadijah, and Regine, from ''Series/LivingSingle''.
* The black women on {{Reality Show}}s tend to be of this variety, ''especially'' those on Creator/{{MTV}}. It's hard to find black female roommates/contestants who ''don't'' fit this stereotype.
** Gladys from ''Series/RoadRules: Latin America'' stands out in particular, as she was booted early in the show for fighting.
** Alicia Calaway from ''Series/{{Survivor}}'' is a notable example. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xl94fj2nHZo This famous scene]] pretty much exemplifies her sassiness.
** Other ''Series/{{Survivor}}'' alums of note include Sherea of ''China'', Ghandia of ''Thailand'', Candace of ''Tocantins'', Yasmin of ''Samoa'', and three-time competitor Cirie, though Cirie tends to be portrayed more often as friendly and sweet but quippy than outright sassy, and is also given considerable character depth.
** Naonka of ''Nicaragua'' is one of the extreme negative versions, having taken an instant and vocal (to the ConfessionCam) dislike to Jud (dubbed "Fabio" by his tribe, a male DumbBlonde but a nice guy) and Kelly (who had her leg amputated at birth).
* Mother and daughter Mary Lou and Ivy are both Sassy Black Women on ''Series/GoodLuckCharlie'' though Ivy has a bit of an edge on her mother since Mary Lou likes jigsaw puzzles and likes to sing "Row Row Row Your Boat" in German.
* Cheryl, Kenan's mother on ''Series/KenanAndKel'' is fairly mellow but she shows signs of this in the episode where Chris moves into the house.
* Rocky on''Series/TheNewNormal''.
* Raven from ''Series/ThatsSoRaven'' though it got cranked UpToEleven when she guest starred on ''TheSuiteLife'' as the same character. Loca from Alana's GirlPosse manages to be both this and a BrawnHilda as well.
* Dr. Curtis Brumfield from ''Series/BodyOfProof'' is a Sassy Black ''Man''.
* ''Series/{{Castle}}'':
** Dr. Lanie Parish is very much this.
** In "Kill the Messenger" we get a grandmother who's this.
* ''Series/MondayMornings'': One PatientOfTheWeek from the pilot episode is an obese black woman, and very outspoken, sometimes downright rude. It seems she's a hypochondriac and a chronic complainer, but Dr. Napur, who is a surgeon and doesn't really have to deal with this case, pushes doctors into other tests or looking for possibilities. The sassy patient was indeed seriously ill. She thanked Dr. Napur for saving her life before the surgery, but was as outspoken and rude-ish as ever.
* Donna on ''Series/ParksAndRecreation''.
* Teddy's best friend Ivy on ''GoodLuckCharlie'', and Ivy's mother to a degree.
* Belma Eugene Buttons and Tovah [=McQueen=] in the "Reality Check" sketch on ''Series/MadTV''.
* Liberty Washington from ''MyNameIsEarl''. Justified, as she is an {{Expy}} of [[spoiler: her half-sister]] Joy. Liberty also exploits the trope: she is an aspiring pro-wrestler, and uses the trope as part of her {{Kayfabe}} persona. (Cue CrowningMomentOfFunny when Earl is helping Randy to rehearse his lines by reading off Liberty's lines.)
* Shirley from ''Series/MadMen'', Peggy Olsen's new secretary who shows up in Season 7.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* The band role of Scary Spice aka. Mel B of the Music/SpiceGirls.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Musical]]
* Bloody Mary from ''SouthPacific'' is an example of this trope before it became popular. She speaks in YouNoTakeCandle, but she's very ''spunky''!
* Queenie from ''ShowBoat'', originally portrayed in blackface.
* Maria from ''PorgyAndBess''.
* ''Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors'' has three of them, Crystal, Ronnette, and Chiffon, who serve as the show's GreekChorus.
* Sophia from ''TheColorPurple''. She even has a song titled "Hell No!"
* Sister Chantelle from ''Theatre/BareAPopOpera'' The Virgin Mary who is also portrayed by her is played as this as well.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Sharmell Huffman, Wrestling/BookerT's wife, was this in her initial face persona. "Can you dig it, sucka" sounded so much better when coming out of her mouth. This made it all the funnier when, after Booker became King of the Ring, the two of them tried to pass themselves as {{Upper Class Twit}}s.
* Naomi Night on NXT season 3 who went so far as to call out Michael Cole. This was later {{flanderiz|ation}}ed at FCW in their latest effort to turn the fans against the popular wrestler, partnered with Tough Enough loser Cameron Lynn(previously described as a ''valley girl'') for good measure. Never mind the attitude got Naomi over in the first place.
* [[Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}} Jacqueline Moore]], when she actually spoke, managed the cigar smoking, beer chugging, poker playing APA and joined in just as well. In TNA she was also with their carbon copies Beer Money Inc.
* [[Wrestling/CarleneMoore Jazz]], who was inspired to become a wrestler after watching Jacqueline and was just as hammy and sassy.
* Wrestling/BlackRose in the WWC, during her time she was with Booker T, [[Wrestling/TheWorldsGreatestTagTeam Shelton Benjamin]] and when she was managing Los Fugitivos anyway. Since joining the NWA La Rosa Negra showed heavy shades of it during her {{heel}}[=/=]{{tweener}} run.
* For that matter, Shelton's momma. She was pretty subdued when WWE showed vintages of Shelton's past growing up in a crime ridden area and his All American victories wrestling in the NCAA but [[ThreeMonthRule when she became an onscreen character]] she was loud, boastful and constantly brow beat Shelton for all his shortcomings.
* "The Queen Of Philly" Sienna Duvall, or when she's high on herself, ''Simply Divine''. She loves her voice almost as much as she loves beating "[[RealWomenDontWearDresses divas]]" so expect to hear a lot of it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Radio]]
* ''The Kevin And Bean Show'' has Ralph Garmin playing a recurring character called Laquisha, a sassy, middle-aged black woman who reviews reality television shows. She basically expresses whatever Ralph's actual opinions are on the show, skewering the banal production and idiotic people, but with a funny voice.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''ToejamAndEarl III'' features Latisha, who's a Sassy... Blue Alien, which is close enough, since she's from a planet whose [[PlanetOfHats hat]] is Funk/Hip-Hop culture.
* Rochelle of ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2''.
* Sagitta Weinberg/Cheiron Archer from ''SakuraWars'' can be this at times.
* ''VideoGame/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream'' has Ellen, whose [[TotallyRadical sassy vernacular]] creates considerable cognitive dissonance in an incredibly bleak game about the end of the world. When confronted with a disembodied jumpsuit taking on the identity of her former rapist, Ellen calls him a "muthuh" and punches him out, to considerable {{Narm}} effect.
* In ''BatenKaitos Orgins'' [[VoiceOfTheLegion Half]] of Guillo's voice is composed of one, the other half being a Creator/SamuelLJackson sound-alike. This works rather well for Guillo's near constant snark.
* Jade from ''Videogame/MortalKombat'' can be a variation of this, especially in the ninth installment.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* Tigerlily Jones in ''SkinHorse''. "When she goes into the truck, she's in Institute Grey. We let her out, she's FoxyBrown. We have no idea how."
* Lenora of ''Webcomic/BlackAdventures'' managed to ''scold a [[OlympusMons legendary Pokémon]]'' into a HeelFaceTurn.
* Mammy Serol of ''Webcomic/EndOfInfinity''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Chaka of the WhateleyUniverse, who fits the positive example described above to a "T". And her mother. And her grandmother.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxfUSJJiBZg&feature=related Keisha Fabo]].
* The titular bear in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WB1G8YF-B4Y the second]] of the two infamous Purity Bear videos.
* Parodied by web-comedian Pia Glenn in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pd9CIP_5wNc this skit]].
* The "Oh, ''hell'' no!" lady, a RunningGag in [[WebVideo/Smosh]]'s [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-D_xPnq6onE&feature=kp If Movies Were Real 2]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Susie Carmichael from ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'', especially in the latter.
* Libby from ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'', who's actually the BlackBestFriend of the AlphaBitch, Cindy Vortex.
* Leshawna on ''TotalDramaIsland''.
* Foxxy Love on ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' is all sass -- and yet another Creator/CreeSummer voice role.
* Loretta Brown, Cleveland's deceased ex-wife on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. Also used for comedic effect in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=PmEvxswn4IY some]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9AajslFuPro of their]] [[CutawayGag one-shot bits]].
* Suga Mama and Dijonay in ''WesternAnimation/TheProudFamily''.
* Trixie in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong''.[[note]]Odd bit of background on this one: the executives tried to [[ExecutiveMeddling tone her down]], but most of her characterization came from her voice actress, Miss Kittie. The execs didn't have the sheer Balzac it took to ask a black woman to act less like ''herself'' to her face, and dropped the issue.[[/note]]
* Aka Pella from ''WesternAnimation/{{Histeria}}!''
* Valerie Gray from ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''.
* Principal Sue Sezno in ''SitDownShutUp''. [[SurroundedByIdiots Her new teaching staff is a bunch of bumbling incompetents]].
* Diana the Acrobat from ''WesternAnimation/DungeonsAndDragons''.
* Most of the female characters in ''ThePJs'' embody this trope, Bebe in particular.
* ''CodenameKidsNextDoor'':
** Numbuh 5.
** Numbuh 5's sister, [[TheDanza Cree]]. [[TalkingtoHimself Both are voiced by]] Creator/CreeSummer.
* The Muses in ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' fit this trope: especially Thalia, the short comic relief.
* Lana Kane of ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' Sassy? Yup. Black-ish? Yuup. Can snap your neck with her man hands? Yuuuuuup!
* Lance gets one of these as a driving instructor in ''SymBionicTitan'' when he is trying to get his license. HilarityEnsues as he has to not only keep her happy, but deal with the gang leader harassing him in the middle of the test, then the MonsterOfTheWeek trying to kill them. However, she has nothing but praise when Lance manages to survive all this and keep her alive in doing so, and passes him.
* Mammy Two-Shoes of ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' illustrates what this trope was like in the 1940's. ValuesDissonance abound. (In the shorts show on T.V. now, they at least dub over her voice, making it more of a current example, just barely.)
* Voice actress Roz Ryan has voiced [[PigeonHoledVoiceActor a few of these]] characters:
** Even though Witch Lezah on ''TheLooneyTunesShow'' has green skin, she still has the mannerisms and personality of a sassy black woman, right down to a Mammy Two-Shoes -esque voice.
** Cake the cat in the gender-swapped episode of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''.
** Bubbie in ''WesternAnimtion/TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack''
** A driving instructor in ''SymBionicTitan''.
** Thalia in ''{{Disney/Hercules}}''.
* Tamika from ''ClassOf3000''.
* Eema the Styracosaurus from ''{{Dinosaur}}'', right down to her accent (compare hers to that of [[LastOfHerKind Baylene's]], who is supposed to be British).
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'':
** Roger pretends to be one:
-->'''Roger:''' What's goin' on? I can't hardly see! Hey Easter Island, move your fat head!
** They made fun of the sassy black woman in the workplace stereotype. An overweight black woman named Lorraine, displays all the negative stereotypes in an extreme sense, resulting her throwing acid in Francine's face.
* Cassidy Williams uses this as her act as Angel Dynamite in ''ScoobyDooMysteryInc''.
* Big Mama was an owl version of this in ''Disney/TheFoxAndTheHound''.
* Rita the Afghan hound from ''Disney/OliverAndCompany''.
* Donna and Roberta of ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow''. While Donna is a more straight example, Roberta is more of a variation.
* {{Lampshaded}} in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', Terry's best friend Max gets kidnapped by Kobra (No not that [[Franchise/GIJoe Cobra]]). And Terry, in camouflage, overhears Max's kidnappers:
-->'''Kobra Advisor:''' She's rude, she's sarcastic, and she has absolutely no respect.\\
'''Terry:''' [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Gotta be Max]].
* Claire in ''{{WesternAnimation/Motorcity}}''.
* Boondocks has covered this one with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Z7Vp-GZK1Q "Crazy Bitch"]]
* The female cop from ''WesternAnimation/ParaNorman''. [[BlackAndNerdy Salma]] could count too, but her sassiness mostly comes from her InsufferableGenius tendencies.
* Monique in ''{{WesternAnimation/Kim Possible}}''
