-->--''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}''

You know the old saying "Spare the rod, spoil the child"? Yeah, pretty much this trope in a nutshell.

Some kids can get [[AllTakeAndNoGive whatever they want by screaming at their parents]] until they give in. "I want a pony" is one common demand of these types.

Usually, but not always, female -- and may grow up to be an AlphaBitch or a RichBitch. Indeed, the grown-up version may still be refered to as a spoiled brat if they still rely on their parents' money and influence. Never NiceToTheWaiter and prone to NeverMyFault.

On the other hand, since ChildrenAreInnocent, the cause may be their parents' treatment of them, whether [[ParentalAbandonment neglect]] or being a too DotingParent. (To be fair, if the parents put their collective foot down, the child would have to change.) Removing them to more natural circumstances may cure them entirely, unlike adults of similar personality. Many a MagicalNanny specializes in it. This is especially likely if the parents lavish the material goods on them [[ParentalAbandonment in place of affection or attention]]; any ParentalSubstitute may bring the child back to good manners by providing attention and discipline, and often wins the heart of the child that way, to the shock of parents, who may complain, "But we give him ''everything''." The older the child is, the less likely this is to happen. In extreme cases, may be the result (or result in) an AllTakeAndNoGive relationship with their parents.

This often leaves the kid RichInDollarsPoorInSense.

A SuperTrope to RoyalBrat (where the brat is part of a powerful family).

Compare with EgocentricallyReligious, who has this attitude towards God and the universe rather than towards father and the local community. Also compare with IdleRich. Contrast NonIdleRich, SpoiledSweet, LonelyRichKid.

!!Examples:

[[folder:Advertising]]
* The Toyota Highlander commercials featuring the little blonde kid. He talks about how his parents used to be lame before they got the "cool" Highlander. The way he brags about it and the way he looks down on the kid whose parents drive an older car really give off the Spoiled Brat vibe.
* A series of condom ads[[http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=screaming+kid+condom+ad&oq=screaming+kid+condom+ad&gs_l=youtube.3...5026.8449.0.8645.23.22.0.1.1.0.163.2447.12j10.22.0...0.0...1ac.1.KrAc2-4ySGY]] highlight a very poorly behaved youngster who is obviously accustomed to getting his own way.
* A Fruit Roll Ups Ad has it to where a kid says "Pleasssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss" throughout the entire comercial for his mother to get him a snack. So [[BrokenAesop she gets him a snack]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* At first it appears that Chiko, the main character of ''Manga/TheDaughterOfTwentyFaces'', plays this type straight to form. Then we find out [[spoiler:she has [[PerfectPoison a good reason]] to put up the act that she does.]] After this the trope is subverted as she practically tries too hard to contribute and be nice to her new "family".
* Howard from ''UninhabitedPlanetSurvive''
* Papirurio from ''GashBell''. His partner Lupa gives him what he wants because he's the ReplacementGoldfish for her dead son.
* The [[CanonForeigner anime-exclusive]] Princess Martina from ''{{Slayers}}'' is horribly spoiled and narcissistic, and even when she's [[PerpetualPoverty forced to make a living for herself after the destruction of her palace]], her feeling of entitlement never goes away. Contrast [[SpoiledSweet kind]] and [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething daring]] Princess Amelia.
* Rumiko Takahashi used this character twice, in the form of Shūtarō Mendō, of ''UruseiYatsura'', and Tatewaki Kunō, of ''RanmaOneHalf''. Mendō might border on being a RoyalBrat, due to the fact his family is insanely wealthy (among other things, they have their own private army and own a considerable chunk of Japan). Mendō is also a HandsomeLech, but Kunō is more of a LovableSexManiac due to the fact his ideas on dating and romance vary between lechery under a pretty guise and outright madness (attacking a girl and making a date the prize in a HeadsIWinTailsYouLose gambit). He can come off as HandsomeLech or even a ChivalrousPervert to girls unfamiliar with his ways, but every girl who gets to know him better quickly becomes disgusted with him -- even Mariko Konjō, the ''one'' girl who fell in love with Kunō, quickly got over him in the original manga version.
** Akane can come off as a brat if her numerous temper tantrums are anything to go by. Especially so in the episode where she supposedly "went missing", worrying her entire family and causing them to frantically search the city for her, and it turned out she was just on the roof because she was still in tantrum mode.
** And Shutarō's sister is just as much of a brat; she's just less pompous and more sadistic.
** Three times. Shun Mitaka from ''MaisonIkkoku'' is a more realistic version of Mendō ([[Creator/AkiraKamiya same voice actor]], [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes similar phobia issues]]), who is a "club pro" tennis coach/playboy.
* Xanxus from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn''. He was a poor boy whose crazy mother [[spoiler: managed to make the Ninth pity them and adopt Xanxus as his own son]]. The Ninth [[spoiler: thought of him as his own son, and gave him love and affection]] -- Xanxus, unfortunately, turned into a violent, ill-tempered Spoiled Brat who wasn't used to things not going his way. His being a Spoiled Brat is especially noticeable when one considers that, although being the EvilCounterpart to Tsuna, he actually had much less [[ButtMonkey abuse]] and [[AbusiveParents neglect]] in his past.
** Even ten years into the future, as much as he's thought to be less of a douchebag than before, he's still ridiculously spoiled and rotten tempered. Most notably [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/kateikyoushi_hitman_reborn/c220/12.html the "beef incident" here]], where he beat the crap out of a bunch of underlings because he '''wanted to eat beef''', and it had to be the best quality, and it '''had''' to be filleted, and '''how do they expect him to eat this shit'''?!
** Hibari shows signs of being this, as well. Anything he wants, he ''gets''. Or heads will roll. And the AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil doesn't exactly discourage his train of thought - they're pretty much his personal servants that help do anything (including some ''very'' morally ambiguous things) he wants. And just look at his reaction to when [[CombatPragmatist Mukuro]] beat him in a fight - he becomes obsessed with completely annihilating him, since he absolutely ''hates'' the idea of ever losing to someone. The only thing about Hibari, however, is that he really ''does'' have [[InsufferableGenius the strength and genius to justify his haughty, spoilt, stuffy attitude]].
* Scarlett O'Hara from ''{{Steamboy}}''. She's insufferably spoilt for a 14-year-old, which is the result of having five "mothers" (a.k.a. servants) who go through the "motherly" motions for her. She matures quite a bit during the movie and the ending credits implies she stopped being a spoilt girl and became a haughty but independent woman.
* A good fraction of all the plots in ''DetectiveConan'' have this in grown-up form. They either get murdered or end up being the reason why someone was murdered in the first place.
** Sonoko is a milder version. Sure, she's a Spoiled Brat quite often, but she's not outwards malicious and cares genuinely for Ran (therefore, she thinks Shinichi's not good enough for her). [[spoiler: And her LongDistanceRelationship with Makoto is quite cute.]]
* In ''Anime/YuGiOh'', Kaiba accuses Noah of being a Spoiled Brat (in addition to being crazy) and he pretty much is; unlike most members of this trope, Noah is incredibly dangerous, having almost godlike powers and an incredibly ego while in the Virtual World, while still having no more wisdom than the child he resembles.
* Subverted in ([[DysfunctionJunction what else?]]) ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Asuka initially appears to be this... until it's revealed that she's doing it on purpose to alienate others because she's suffering from abandonment issues; there's been no-one around in her life to spoil her.
* Garma Zabi is portrayed as this in ''Gundam: The Origin'', an alternate retelling of ''MobileSuitGundam''. He whines about Char getting all the glory and pesters his more prominent family members into giving him a combat posting so he can earn some fame for himself... '''after''' complaining about looking like the "baby" of the Zabi family. It should be noted, however, that this is an AlternateCharacterInterpretation that clashes with Garma's canon personality from the original anime.
** Bright Noa calls Amuro Ray this when slapping him because his father never punched him... Yeah, it doesn't make much sense but he probably meant the fact that he was never corrected for showing a whiny behaviour.
* [[AmbiguouslyGay Poland]] from ''AxisPowersHetalia'' starts out as this, but later matures via CharacterDevelopment, defending [[TheWoobie Lithuania]] from the much-feared [[PsychopathicManchild Russia]].
** Prussia is apparently also this, as WordOfGod says that the reason he is [[ItsAllAboutMe the way]] [[ManChild he is]] is because the Pope would let him do whatever he wanted when he was [[TheTeutonicKnights a child]].
* In ''Manga/WildRock'', Nava is absolutely spoiled rotten by his [[DotingParent dad and uncles]], gets into everything and has the attention span of a fruit fly
* It is pretty much this trope that drove Keima from ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' into the kind of...obsessive gamer he is. He has 6 LCD [=TVs=], 6+ home videogame consoles, 10+ portable [[PlayStationPortable PFPs]], and a collection of [[DatingSim gal games]]... in his own ''personal game library''. And where does this all come from? Well, the "[[AllTakeAndNoGive M funds]]".
* Nishiki from ''Manga/KamisamaKiss'' mainly due to the influence of his family retainer and right-hand man. Brat part gets beaten out of him by the end of his story arc.
* In ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'', Umi Ryuuzaki is like this to start. She complains incessantly about being stuck in another world with no luxuries and (in the anime) missing her fencing tournament. She does end up [[CharacterDevelopment learning to leave it behind]], although she's still very insistent on having her opinions be heard.
* The World Nobles in ''Manga/OnePiece'' are basically what would happen if you gave a spoiled brat enough wealth and political power to be completely untouchable and able to do whatever they can. On top of being ridiculously rich, they are also spoiled to the point that they think everything belongs to them: and sadly, considering they are descended from the twenty kings who founded the World Government, few would disagree with them.
** Their attitude is supported by their ability to call in [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking one of the Admirals]] for any reason, meaning that anyone who refuses to take the [[AristocratsAreEvil abuse they constantly dish out]] gets a walking natural disaster sicced on them. It's because of this that that the only people considered capable of defying the World Nobles are the Four Emperors, the four most powerful pirates in the world -- mainly because not even the Admirals stand a chance against one of ''them''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comics]]
* Of course, {{Viz}} magazine's eponymous ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Spoilt Bastard]]'' Timmy Timpson. In every strip he bullies and emotionally abuses his rather weak-willed mother, [[NeverMyFault blaming her for whatever problem he's caused]] (and what's more she always believes it's truly her fault) and leading her to spend money she doesn't have to cater to her son's every whim. In one old strip he pretended to be sick to get out of school and kept implying that it was his mother's fault. The doctor then tells Timmy's mother that ''There's nothing wrong with your son that a good smack on the bottom wouldn't cure!''. In the annual he runs away from home because his mother put two sugars on his Weetabix when "She knows!" that he only has one and three quarter sugars.
* Like the picture above, [[ArchieComics Veronica]] wants to get a job like all her friends have, but she's just not motivated enough to actually apply for one. In one comic chapter, everyone is busy with their summer jobs... except Veronica. She has no siblings (that we see, anyway), and her parents are busy running the family corporate empire, so she's pretty much alone and already bored with the empty days of summer vacation. She wished she had something to do, even a job, because this boredom is driving her crazy. Archie eventually comes by and visits, telling her about this one position open at the jewelry shop in the nearby mall. He says this position would be perfect for her, since she wears so much of it. Veronica looks like she's going to accept... then decides not to, because she's so wealthy she doesn't need to work. Apparently, having loads of money means one can never get an actual job, even if it's just to pass the time.
* Nastalathia Smythe-Heatherstone, a.k.a. Nasty, from ''TerryAndThePirates''.
* Victor Von Piro and Morty Vivente from ''Minimonsters''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* Downplayed in ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'' - Calvin temporarily becomes one of these at the end of an episode.
* Deconstructed the WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda fanfic series, the FanFic/NecromancersOfChinaSaga. Po and Tigress meet their daughter from the future, Fenhong Se. They eventually learn that their future selves spoiled her so much and gave her deverything, but she could not get the one thing she wanted most: to be a greater hero than either her mother or father. Her spoiled nature plays a vital part in the existance of a BadFuture, causing Po and Tigress to realize they must raise her properly when the time comes.
* FanFic/HarryRiddle thanks to his "auntie Bellatrix" spoiling him rotten:
-->'''Harry:''' Can we go to Diagon Alley anytime soon? The letter demands my reply by today, you know, but I already sent it, so don't worry. But Draco's already gotten all of his stuff. Can I get a snake? I want a snake. Or . . . Can I take Nagini?
-->'''Voldemort:''' No, you may not take my familiar.
* The Blog/ReadingRainbowverse has Powderfluff, who is so sheltered that, when she does briefly visit Ponyville, many ponies interpret her paranoia and immaturity as legitimate mental illness.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film - Animated]]
* Child star Darla Dimple in ''WesternAnimation/CatsDontDance'' is this to insane levels, demanding that she be given everything she wants and be focused on 100% of the time. How she got this way is never addressed, since she [[ParentalAbandonment doesn't seem to have parents]].
* Kuzco from ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove''.
* In ''KikisDeliveryService'', Kiki after befriending an elderly lady helps her deliver a fried fish cake for her granddaughter's birthday, something that her granddaughter likes. Making the entire thing the old fashion way and battling through a storm, Kiki arrives and meets the granddaughter who only turned up her nose that her grandmother got her another one of those fish cakes and barely gives a thanks to the soaking wet Kiki. Though there are arguable PetTheDog moments showing she isn't all that. She actually doesn't protest when her friends compliment Kiki's independence and shown to befriend Kiki by the epilogue.
* In ''SpiritedAway'', [[MyBelovedSmother Yubaba thoroughly indulges and overprotects]] her baby, who is self-centered and cowardly ("Play with me or i'll break your arm!"). [[spoiler:When he is transformed into a mouse and his mother does not recognize him, he goes with Chihiro, becoming her friend, and on their return, shows his mother that he can stand on his own and demands that she be nice to Chihiro.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film - Live Action]]
* Princess Vespa in ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}''. Her car's license plate even reads "Spoiled Rotten". Case in point: "My industrial strength hairdryer. AND I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT IT!"
* Eric Bates in ''Film/TheToy''.
* Missy Wiener from ''Film/WelcomeToTheDollhouse''. She acts innocent and sweet, but in reality she's a [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]] who has mommy and daddy wrapped around her finger. Her favorite pastime is baiting Dawn into getting into trouble.
* There was Arthur Hoggart's granddaughter in ''{{Babe}}'', who upon seeing the beautifully made doll house that her grandfather had spent so much time making began crying, screaming that it wasn't the one she had seen on television.
* The meaning behind the title of ''TheHouseOfYes''. The character of Jackie was so spoiled that the word "no" was simply never spoken in their household.
* ''PeeWeesBigAdventure'' - Francis!
* Natalie Sands of ''Film/GirlsJustWantToHaveFun'' has her father wrapped around her finger, including acting annoyed she only has one car. When she becomes TheRival in the dance contest, she bribes another contestant to ruin the routine of his partner, who has just ticked Natalie off (as in not letting Natalie get away with nearly running someone over).
* ''RikiOhTheStoryOfRicky'': the Warden's fat son.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Veruca Salt of ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'', along with the two movies based on it. In the book and the first movie, it's explicitly mentioned she's [[PrettyInMink wearing a mink coat]]. It's not FurAndLoathing here; it's that mink coats were almost never made for girls at the time (mostly rabbit), no matter how wealthy the family.
** Veruca's song from the 1971 adaptation is practically "Spoiled Brat: the anthem". See the page quote for exact words.
** The stereotypical "pony" line is spoofed in the 2005 movie:
--->'''Veruca''': Daddy, I want [[OhNoNotAgain another]] pony.
** Although Veruca is the most glaring example in the book, the other children (except for [[TheHero Charlie]], of course) are spoiled brats themselves. Augustus Gloop is a glutton whose mother just won't stop feeding him, Mike Teavee is allowed to spend all of his time watching television and apparently subsists on TV dinners and Violet Beauregard goes unquestioned on any of her decisions by her parents.
* A couple of examples in ''Literature/HarryPotter'':
** Dudley is EXTREMELY spoiled, though he gets better after the fifth book. Harry even wonders what Dudley saw when they were attacked by Dementors, creatures who force their victims to relive their worst memories. Harry, of course, heard the last words his parents said before they were killed, but can only guess what they showed someone spoiled by his parents his whole life. WordOfGod is that Dudley saw exactly that - they forced him to see just what kind of person he was.
** Draco Malfoy is a subversion in a way. Although he gets the best of everything it's often hinted that it's just another way for his father to show off his influence. Several scenes throughout the book show him getting very snippy when he thinks his son is acting... inelegantly. Especially in the second and fourth movies, where Lucius has no qualms whatsoever about moving people around bodily with his cane.
* ''Literature/TheBabySittersClub'': Jenny Prezzioso; to many fans, Karen Brewer also qualifies.
* In ''Literature/TheSecretGarden'', both Colin and Mary are this, at first. But Mary was ignored by her mother and Colin by his father, and playmates and exposure to garden and the wild cure them.
* ''Literature/CaptainsCourageous'' has Harvey Cheyne, a thoroughly spoiled brat who gets it worked out of him when he is swept overboard at sea and has to spend much of the summer on a fishing boat as part of the crew.
* In ''Literature/FlowersForAlgernon'', Charlie's younger sister Norma was this growing up due to her mother's ParentalFavoritism. She grew out of it in adulthood but still retained a mild degree of neediness.
* In ''Literature/DiaryOfAWimpyKid'', Manny is growing into this due to ParentalFavoritism.
* Soraya in the Literature/FarsalaTrilogy. She's fifteen, but we first meet her when she's having a temper tantrum in her room, which involves throwing things at servants. Luckily, [[CharacterDevelopment she grows out of it]].
* In Creator/JohnCWright's ''[[Literature/TheGoldenOecumene The Golden Transcedence]]'', Atkins complains about having to rely on a "spoiled rich man's son" to rescue humanity. Phaethon is actually not spoiled. Just very, very, very pig-headed.
* In Creator/AaronAllston's ''Literature/GalateaIn2D'', Paris refuses to shoot two arrows. Roger thinks that next time, he will not chose a spoiled brat.
* Robert Arryn in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' is the only living heir to a Great House, with a lot of stillbirths before and since. As such, his mother smothers him to the point that he's still being breast-fed at age six, and with the ultimate result that he's a budding [[TheCaligula Caligula]], accustomed to annoying guests being executed for his amusement.
** Joffery Baratheon is an even more dangerous one.
** Viserys Targaryen, unlike Joffery and Robert, Viserys has lost his houses fortune and prestige. Despite that he still acts like one, treating everyone else like crap, this doesn't go well for him when he is with the Dothraki.
* Hamish Bigmore from the ''Literature/MrMajeika'' series.
* Princess Elspeth in the Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar series was this, to the extent that the Heralds and Court even called her (unofficially) "the Brat." It turned out her nanny was invoking this trope to ensure the grown Elspeth would lack the pure heart necessary to become a Herald and rightful Heir.
* Literature/{{Oblomov}} started as this - his family doesn't even mind if he skips school regularly. In fact, they push him to do so. Which leads to him not coping with life later.
* Not even [[Literature/TheBerenstainBears Brother Bear and Sister Bear]] were immune, in ''The Berenstain Bears Get the Gimmies''. That story had them wanting literally ''everything'' whenever their parents took them to the shopping mall - and if they didn't get something, they'd [[UpToEleven take this trope to embarrassing levels]], throwing themselves on the ground and kicking their legs and screaming their heads off.
* Camille in ''Literature/ThereseRaquin'' was cosseted so much as a child, that he's completely intolerable to everyone but his mother. She of course thinks he's the best son ever.
* Her Thumbleness from ''[[Literature/{{Dragonback}} Dragon and Slave]]''. Her family owns a plot of lands with slaves to work it, and from time to time she goes with her daddy to select one to be entertained by. Generally it seems to mean being played with like a toy and beat up.
* In Creator/WenSpencer's ''Literature/{{Tinker}}'', Windwolf mentions that most elves are this because their parents, if they actually have another child, do so only after the one before is fully grown.
* British statesman Lord Chesterfield wrote in ''Literature/LettersToHisSon'', about a different young nobleman: "They have ruined their own son by what they called and thought loving him. They have made him believe that the world was made for him, not he for the world; and unless he stays abroad a great while, and falls into very good company, he will expect, what he will never find, the attentions and complaisance from others, which he has hitherto been used to from Papa and Mamma." (letter 164)
* Holden Caulfield from ''Literature/TheCatcherInTheRye'' is often interpreted as this, especially by the novel's critics.
* Howard Hughes is portrayed as a grown-up version of this trope in the works of Creator/JamesEllroy. He is frequently described as whining and pouting when things don't go his way (or even when he's told he'll have to wait for something he wants ''right now'').
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': In "The Wolf and the Lion," Lord Renly Baratheon reveals that his brothers consider him to be a spoiled child. Ser Loras Tyrell's facial expression and his silence strongly indicate that he agrees. Renly then points out that Loras (whose family is richer than his) is overly-pampered as well.
-->'''Renly''': And how much did your father pay for that armour of yours?
* Both Lydia and Jackson from ''Series/TeenWolf'' come from very wealthy families who appear to give them whatever they want. In Jackson's case, this includes a brand new Porsche.
* London Tipton from ''TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody''.
** Though subverted, that she actually does care about her friends and is usually helpful.
* Tonya from ''EverybodyHatesChris''.
* Dakota Condor from ''SonnyWithAChance''. Even worse, she will fire anyone on a whim if she doesn't get what she wants from the person.
* Over time, the character of A.J. Soprano from ''Series/TheSopranos'' evolved into a fairly hilarious depiction of a lazy, entitled spoiled rich kid. He dropped out of college, spent a lot of time sitting on his butt not working, did a whole lot of whining every single time his parents told him to do anything, and never once looked like he was working towards any real future. The constant doting by his father (especially during a rough period of separation during his marriage) didn't help matters.
* Creator/StephenColbert degenerates into this from time to time on ''Series/TheColbertReport'', usually when there's some cool new toy on the market and he thinks he should get it for free.
* ''Everyone'' on ''Series/MySuperSweetSixteen''.
** The character Madison Penrose in ''Film/MySuperPsychoSweet16'' was based on these types, only with a long case of BreakTheHaughty [[spoiler:and, ultimately, Kill the Haughty]]. Several of her scenes deliberately evoke a number of particularly infamous Spoiled Brat moments from that show.
* [[TheBigBangTheory Sheldon Cooper]] tends to embody this trope, often getting whatever he wants, how and when he wants it, no matter how unreasonable, merely by being extremely difficult. Ironically, his family seem to be the only people ''not'' enabling him.
** Which may be part of the reason he's so reluctant to spend time with them, even moreso than the other characters and their respective relatives.
* Stingy from ''LazyTown'' is so spoiled, he believes that ''everything he sees'' belongs to him. He even has a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AX5sIRop-M0 song about it]]:
--> ''"This mailbox is mine / And this triagonal sign\\
The blue balloon / The month of June\\
They’re mine, mine, mine, mine, mine"''
* Renee of the '90s BBC series ''Series/{{Chef}}'' Her father, the nouveau riche owner of Chateau Anglais, makes Gareth take her on to work in the kitchen even though she can't even chop a carrot, and she whines, complains and generally throws a fit any time she's expected to actually do anything.
* Mary Cherry, from ''{{Popular}}''.
* Victoria Justice's character in ''{{Spactacular}}''.
* Daughter of the Rich Bellamys, Elizabeth, from the 1970's BBC series ''UpstairsDownstairs''. She often has stints of protesting for social reforms for the poor and women, yet treats her "friend" and servant, Rose, like dirt. She often complains of having a horrible life, being so rich and having nothing to do, and saying how great Rose has it. Including right after the episode where [[spoiler:Elizabeth got Rose sent to jail by accident, where she was starved and tortured,]] and then sent back to work like nothing happened.
* Scarlett from ''Series/SLiDE''.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' gave us another male example in the Sontaran two-parter "The Sontaran Strategem"/"The Poison Sky". Said kid was actually a teenager, but due to wealth and extreme intelligence had been getting everything he wanted his entire life. The Doctor notes that people haven't said "no" to him in a ''very'' long time.
* Rachel's sisters Jill and Amy on ''Series/{{Friends}}'' are both very, very much this.
** Rachel herself is also this when we first see her, but she gets better.
* Abby Sciuto from ''{{NCIS}}'' tends to act like this, whining and forcing others (mostly [[ButtMonkey Timothy McGee]]) to do what she wants with no regards to rules or laws, with Gibbs enabling her and tending to blame and punish others for her mistakes (once again [[ButtMonkey McGee]]).
* Maris from ''Series/{{Frasier}}''.

* In ''The Insect Play'', the ichneumon larva doesn't like the several freshly killed crickets her Daddy brings her every day.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Prince Laharl from ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness''. He initially refused to pay his vassals because "That's my allowance! Nobody's touching it!" Even after [[TheLancer Etna]] goads him into paying, he opts to steal the funds instead. He eventually does shape up a little, mostly because Etna made it clear that she was perfectly willing to off him and take his place if he didn't.
** Rozalin from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'' fits this as well, except she's a lot nicer than Laharl. Still quite a brat, but nicer.
** Emizel from ''[[VideoGame/Disgaea4APromiseUnforgotten Disgaea 4]]''. Both his profile on the official site and his early ingame class description flat-out call him a "spoiled little brat". This changes when he joins Valvatorez and CharacterDevelopment kicks in, though.
* The RPG ''MyWorldMyWay'' takes this to its (il)logical conclusion, where a Spoiled Brat princess is the main player character, and can actually progress through the game by pouting to make the world bend to her will. Monsters attacking too quickly? Shout "Ladies first!" and the princess will get the first attack. Quest too challenging? Throw a fit until someone agrees to do it for you.
* Mint from ''VideoGame/ThreadsOfFate'' is a very spoiled princess.
* The spoiled brat in the auction house in ''FinalFantasyVI'' is the number one reason you never get to have any model airships or talking chocobos.
* Remilia Scarlet is considered ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'''s poster child for a spoiled brat. A 500+ year old vampire with a perpetually 11-year old temperment and a HyperCompetentSidekick for a head maid. What Remilia wants, Remilia gets.
** Tenshi is also something of a Spoiled Brat, with emphasis on the spoiled. She also has such a silver spoon on her tongue that she was bored to death prior to the events in ''Scarlet Weather Rhapsody''.
* ''VideoGame/BackyardSports'': Jorge Garcia to an extent.
* Recurring {{NPC}} Flambeaux from ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' is utterly self-centered and unconcerned about anything that doesn't directly affect her. She became a superhero ''solely'' for the attention and adulation she expected she'd receive. And when she didn't get as much as she thought was her due, she became a ''villain'' and started terrorizing journalists into publishing worshipful articles about her.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' has this as a major flaw in Luke's character until [[spoiler:he becomes TheAtoner]]. It was so bad that all the other characters were surprised when they each first heard him say "Thank you."

* Angelica Pickles of ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}''. There is an episode of the earlier seasons, where the parents takes a quiz to determine whether or not their children are spoiled brats. Didi worries about pampering Tommy too much because she answered "Yes" to one of the questions. Chaz reassures her that answering up to ten with "Yes" is quite normal. Drew answered "Yes" to basically every question. However, given and hinted that Lipschitz is a "crackpot", Drew decides to not take his advice, and [[StatusQuoIsGod return back to normal]].
* Paulina from ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''.
** Jazz Fenton is this to a certain extent.
* Princess Morbucks from ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' is this to a ridiculous extent.
* Sarah from ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' certainly qualifies.
** Eddy could certainly qualify, as well.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'' has Trixie Tang and Veronica plus her clique boys and Remy Buxaplenty.
** [[TookALevelInJerkass Timmy]] has been [[NotSoAboveItAll sometimes]] said to be one [[RecycledINSPACE WITH MAGIC]] by the fanbase during seasons 4-6.
* Elisabeth Delmas, a.k.a. Sissi (yes, that is indeed her nickname) from ''CodeLyoko'', whose father is the headmaster of Kadic Academy, where she and the rest of the heroes go to school.
** She actually started out SpoiledSweet (and [[spoiler: ends that way too]]), her obnoxious personality was largely an [[NiceJobBreakingItHero inadvertant result of the heroes' behavior.]]
* Lemongrab of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' definitely counts. If he doesn't get what he wants (be it a reasonable or unreasonable demand), SOMEBODY is going in the dungeon. There are many reasons for his [[{{Pun}} sour]] personality (mental illness, stupidity, immaturity), but he was raised in a castle in which everything was handed to him. That probably didn't help him much, in the long run.
* Male example: there's a bratty boy named Gavin who sometimes appears on ''TheSimpsons'', bawling out his mother if she displays any reluctance to cater to his latest whim. He frequently refers to her by degoratory names such as "Stupid" on a casual basis as well.
** Bart Simpson himself used to come off this way, if only by default because he was so disobedient and disrespectful but [[KarmaHoudini never seemed to get punished severely for these actions]]. One episode played this up by having Bart repeatedly play pranks and pull obnoxious stunts, leading his teacher to demand that Marge and Homer discipline him. Marge really did try, but her efforts were all futile because Homer constantly felt sorry for Bart and would undo Marge's punishments when she wasn't there.
* Wendy O. / Kootie Pie Koopa from the various ''SuperMarioBros'' cartoons is a huge example. One of her catchphrases is simply "I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT!" ([[http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=X-FApni9YVM See for yourself!]]) She once demanded, and was given, ''[[ShinyNewAustralia Antarctica]]'', and then briefly demanded to be Empress of America.
* Lisa Rental in ''SheepInTheBigCity''.
* Shapey in ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel''. Bad enough he seems to have a behavioral problem, his parents (and Orel, by their command) turn a blind eye to his destructive behavior, and cater to his every whim, lest the neighbors complain about his high-pitched screaming. Later on he does grow out of it and in the DistantFinale he grows up to become a decidedly functioning adult.
** Clay as a kid qualifies. The reason why he becomes this is because of his religious fanatic mother.
* The Love Mummy in ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' threatens anyone who doesn't give it what it wants with a curse. However, the real curse is that the mummy is a socially inept spoiled brat with no manners.
* Eric Cartman of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. Here's one of his milder examples:
-->'''Cartman:''' Mom, can you get me some Weight Gain 4000?
-->'''Cartman's Mom:''' Okay Eric. I'll get you some at the store tomorrow.
-->'''Cartman:''' But mom, I need it for tomorrow!
-->'''Cartman's Mom:''' But, tomorrow is grocery day, Eric.
-->'''Cartman:''' ''Mooooooom'' *whines incoherently*
-->'''Cartman's Mom:''' Okay, okay. Well, I guess I'll be going to the store now, then.
-->'''Cartman:''' *smiles* Sweet.
* Meg on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' used to be a spoiled brat in the beginning of the series. Like any typical bratty teenaged girl, Meg wanted expensive things like a new car (because everyone else at school has one) or a new purse (because everyone at school had one). Meg would attempt to beg or guilt her parents to get the things she wanted, but it never worked. Ever since Meg became the ButtMonkey of the show, she's shed her bratty tendencies and is much more mature but also a bit crazy.
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'': Roger is referred to as a spoiled brat a few times in one episode, and he and Stan tend to embody this trope whenever enabled, usually by Francine.
** Steve and Hayley, the actual kids of the family, have the odd bout of this as well, even if it's more out of defiance of their parents than being spoiled by them.
** Steve becomes an extreme example after Haley elopes with Jeff Fischer. Stan and Francine both think the other's parenting methods drove Haley away, so after a [[ItMakesSenseInContext bike race to decide how they raise Steve, which Francine wins]], Francine's extremely laid back parenting methods turn Steve into a fat, lethargic brat who practically lives on the couch. [[spoiler:He ''still'' turns out better than the clone of him Stan had made due to Stan's belief that his way of parenting is better. Stan's extremely strict parenting methods turn the Steve clone into a cat-killing psychopath who fakes running away and abducts the real Steve to take his place. The [[AnAesop moral]] of the story is that Stan and Francine's parenting methods need to balance each other out.]]
* Jeremy Creek in ''TheTownSantaForgot'': He starts out spoiled until his parents stop buying him toys, he then gets the idea of writing a HUGE Christmas list to Santa but [[spoiler:all the toys he wanted went to a town with his name, thus seeing the selfishness of his ways, he decides to reform, and therefore becomes generous]]
* D.W. from ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' -- definitely.
** Muffy Crosswire even moreso.
*** At least Muffy isn't a TOTAL brat, unlike D.W., Muffy actually learns from her spoiled ways. And just because D.W.'s only four-five years old doesn't mean that's a good enough excuse for all the times she's tormented Arthur.
*** Muffy plays an exaggerated example of this trope when her family is chosen to be on a reality show and the director, J3, wants to create drama to sell the show better. He suggests that Muffy bully her beloved butler, Bailey, who she is very close with. This includes Muffy throwing food, badgering Bailey to drive faster, and a ''Literature/MommieDearest''-inspired wire hanger scene. Off the reality show, while she can be mean sometimes, she is never as mean as her reality show portrayal.
** The Tibbles. Their grandmother is a soft touch and no matter what they do she never punishes them.
* Snivley from ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0199161/ Yogi's First Christmas]]''.
* Brattina from ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies1980s''.
* Teela is portrayed like this in most versions of ''Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse'', except for [[Film/MastersOfTheUniverse the movie]]!
* Montana Max from ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' is a pretty blatant example. He's even referred to as one multiple times.
* Caleb, a one shot character from ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill''.
* A WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes retelling of the Goldilocks story has a girl mouse encountering three cats - Sylvester, his wife, and his son, who is constantly referred to as a spoiled brat, and that's apparently his name too.
** Said son was Sylvester Jr, more known for his appearances in the Hippity Hopper shorts. While not quite as pronounced as in said short, he is often a condescending little know-it-all who whines or expresses shame for his father whenever he doesn't add up to his standards of an ideal role model or formidable vermin chaser.
* Fenton in ''HomeMovies'', especially during his birthday party. Spoiled JerkAss is more accurate.
** In one episode, he and his mother were shown eating nothing but rice for dinner, as though it was a regular occurrence. Maybe a nutritional deficiency is partly responsible for his behavior.
* Virginia in ''LolaAndVirginia'' a spoiled RichBitch, who was transferred from a private school to a public school, because of her mindset that the whole world revolves around her. She always does everything to get her way and to torment Lola, but she usually gets whats coming to her.
* Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', an AlphaBitch duo whose names sum up their Cutie Marks. In the MLP universe, your Cutie Mark defines what you're best at; thus, these two are destined to be little more than rich bitches.
** Angel Bunny, Fluttershy's rabbit companion, has shown extreme signs of this as of [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E19PuttingYourHoofDown "Putting Your Hoof Down,"]] throwing a violent temper tantrum and actually physically attacking Fluttershy over a salad, of all things.
* ''TotalDramaAction'' has Courtney, who practically and blatantly rigs the contest in her favor, threatening to sue if she doesn't "get the win she deserves".
* ''[[TotalDramaIsland Total Drama Revenge of the Island]]'' brought us fame magnet, Dakota.
* Pistol on ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'' is extremely demanding and is favored by her father. She successfully goaded him into giving her 100 dollars for no reason at one point, despite being kindergarten age.
* A season two episode of ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' saw Jackie and Jade helping an incredibly rich ManChild search for a mythical lost city. The guy's long-suffering butler had it even worse, as he had to put up with his employer's every demand even after [[spoiler: they were both magicallly de-aged.]] First lines of the episode?
-->'''Jackie:''' I cannot believe I am stuck in the jungle with such a spoiled brat.
-->'''Jade:''' ''(hurt)'' You invited me!
-->'''Jackie:''' I was talking about HIM!
* Apple of ''WesternAnimation/MotherUp'' swings between her normal personality of SpoiledSweet and this. Whenever she's affected by too much sugar or performance-enhancing drugs, Apple turns into a demanding little monster.
* In ''WesternAnimation/BarbieAndTheSecretDoor'', the BigBad is a little brat named Malucia who wants all of the magic in the land for herself.
