This is simply what you think is the (not some of the, '''''the''''') best example of any trope (an objective trope, not subjective, since this already is subjective). The "Crowning Example" if you will.

There could be several reasons you think an example is the best.
* You think it's the best in terms of illustrating the trope.
* You think it's the most well done.
* It's your favorite play in that trope.
* You just really like the source material.

Oh, several things before you list examples:
* Each troper gets one example per trope, no more.
* Don't go "no, this is," or phrases like that. This is about our own personal favorites.
* '''Sign your entries.'''

*** Thirded. ~ @/NintendoNate25
** [[TonyHawksUnderground Eric Sparrow]] ~ @/CyberTiger88
** [[{{Victorious}} Ryder Daniels]]. - excaruso
*** Seconded. For those who don't watch the show, Ryder manipulated Tori into helping him get a good grade on an assignment ''simply because he could''. {{Jerkass}} indeed. @/{{Aspie}}
** [[VideoGame/EarthBound Porky]] ''[[VideoGame/EarthBound freakin']]'' [[VideoGame/EarthBound Minch.]] ~ Mistermister
*** [[VideoGame/{{MOTHER3}} Seconded.]] ~ @/ZettaToad
*** Just think about it this way; he is [[UpToEleven ''way'' worse in jerkiness than Cartman.]] (And we're talking abut a character that has barely any dialogue in the two games he appeared in.) This guy just gets [[MoralEventHorizon under your skin]] by the time ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER 3}}'' rolls in...and everything about his character ''just'' '''gets''' ''''worse''''. ~ @/PerfectSq
*** Thirded, the name Porky Minch is considered an insult to me- @/{{Gzillafan77}}
** [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Jin Kisaragi]] ~ @/ChrisX
** [[{{Walkyverse}} Mike]] [[Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}} Warner]]. - @/{{Sporkaganza}}
** Louise from ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero''. -@/PhysicalStamina
* JerkAssFacade
** [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Roy Mustang]]. I dare you to find a character who is better at acting like a total douche while having good-hearted intentions. ''Anywhere''. ~ [=CaellachTigerEye=], Vellophone
*** Seconded so. So. Much ~ aeroplanejelly
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Squall Leonhart]] ~ @/JoieDeCombat
* JerkassHasAPoint
** [[LegendOfGalacticHeroes Paul von Oberstein.]] His ''entire'' character and place in the story revolves around this trope.
*** Seconded. ~mrbits
* JerkassWoobie
** [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Asuka]]. You will never find a {{woobie}} who you want to beat senseless quite this much.~ [=PhoenixFire=], @/{{Carla}}
*** Agreed. She's such a good example that she's simultaneously one of my favorite characters and one of my most hated characters. [[MindScrew Somehow.]] ~mrbits
** [[VeronicaMars Logan Echolls]]. I beg to differ. ~ @/VoodooChild
** Or there's always [[{{Glee}} Rachel Berry]] ~ @/ManWithoutABody does not feel demasculinized by his love of ''{{Glee}}''
** I see your JerkassWoobie trope and raise you a [[CompleteMonster Complete Monster Woobie]]: [[VideoGame/EarthBound Porky]] [[VideoGame/{{Mother3}} Minch]]. - @/TheAlbinoPrimid
** Hansel and Gretel from Manga/BlackLagoon. Seriously ... those two [[CreepyChild Creepy Children]] are sociopaths you get kicks out of murder, and yet they have the most ''heartbreaking'' FreudianExcuse - yes, even ''more'' than [[WesternAnimation/AvatartheLastAirbender Azula]]. Just watch the series ... you'll see what I mean. ~ CaellachTigerEye
** What, no [[Literature/HarryPotter Snape?]] ~ pika09
** [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Uchiha Sasuke's]] entire family was killed by his brother, and now he is going to kill yours.

** Lucius Vorenus from Series/{{Rome}}. ~ [=CounterBlitzkrieg=]
** As of ''[[ASongOfIceAndFire A Dance With Dragons]]'': [[spoiler: Theon Greyjoy]]. ~ @/{{Oberyn}}
*** Seconded. He arguably has the crowns for both the biggest {{Jerkass}} ''and'' the biggest {{Woobie}} in an [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters enormous]] series overflowing with {{Broken Bird}}s. Even more impressively, the woobie-ism came later, so it's not a FreudianExcuse - he's just simply an ass. - @/{{Psychobabble6}}
** [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Eddy]]. Yes, he regularly scams people out of their money (Or at least tries to), but the stuff he handled at the hands of his brother... ~ @/{{Gumbal1}}
** [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Precia]], at least in the movie. You can't get much more jerkass than a woman who ''whips'' her daughter, but it's also hard not to sympathize with her after seeing her backstory.~ spacemonkey37
** [[Machinima/RedVsBlue Leonard Church]]. [[spoiler:All three of him, in fact, to various degrees of jerkassness and woobieness.]] - foxmccloud4387
** [[Series/TheOfficeUS Michael Scott]], because "''Idiot Woobie''" wasn't an option. ~ @/{{King of the Mime Swing}}

** [[Literature/HarryPotter James Potter]], [[CharacterDevelopment at first.]] ~ pika09
** [[RevengeOfTheNerds The Alpha Betas]] ~ @/KingCrInuYasha
** [[EyeshieldTwentyOne Kongo Agon]] is an extreme example; he's not a jerk jock, he's a vile, arrogant, ''sociopathic'' jock. ~ @/KingOfTheMimeSwing
* JerkSue
** Emma friggin' Nelson from ''Series/DegrassiTheNextGeneration'' ~pocksuppet1

** [[VisualNovel/{{Clannad}} Tomoya Okazaki]]. ~Mapi-chan, neobowman, @/DRoy
** [[EurekaSeven Holland]], although the heart of gold part is a bit delayed. ~ @/BlankMage
** [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaPhantomHourglass Linebeck]], naturally. ~ @/{{deeman45}}, @/ZettaToad
** [[Anime/PrincessTutu Fakir]] fits this trope so well. He acts jerkish in the start of the show... but then you really get to see the true part of his personality. ~Rosebrook
** [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Kanji Tatsumi]] ~ @/CyberTiger88
** [[LightNovel/{{Toradora}} Taiga Aisaka]] ~ Hey everybody! TheBully of this high school happens to donate presents to families and orphaned children every Christmas :)

* JokerImmunity
** [[TropeNamer Take a]] [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker wild guess]]. ~sinesofinsanity

** The party members of 1984. They create a terrible CrapsackWorld with no emotion at all, and it's implied they NEVER fall. - Ericho
** [[{{Bokurano}} Hiroyuki Hatagai]]. The guy has sex with a girl of thirteen, then sets her up to be raped by six guys... and gets away unscathed in the end. ~ SweetFirefly
** Xur from ''Film/TheLastStarfighter''. He flies off into space in an escape pod after his battleship is destroyed and no sequel to the film was ever made. The end. ~
** Cobra Commander from ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeSigma6''. He was the most despicable incarnation in the ''Franchise/GIJoe'' series until the next installment ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeResolute'' came out yet in the GrandFinale titled ''Assault'' he ends up escaping justice while all the other Cobra members are captured. ~
** [[SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo Skeleton King]]. Since the series is incomplete, he definitely counts as a KarmaHoudini. ~
** The Coachman from ''Film/Pinocchio''. ~ elswordfan1990
** Dr. Claw from ''Film/InspectorGadget''. After ''Inspector Gadget 2'', [[{{Sequelitis due to the poor quality of the sequel]], no more sequels were made and Dr. Claw became one of the biggest [[KarmaHoudini Karma Houdinis]] out there. ~ elswordfan1990

** ''{{Hamlet}}''. (It doesn't count that technically [[spoiler: Horatio]] makes it. He was a total nonentity and his survival was inconsequential to the plot. The ending was the consummate pre-industrial revolution kill 'em all blood bath.) - [=ZiggyZag=]

** Umm...[[ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents Lemony]] [[TropeNamers Snicket,]] anyone? Rants for about two and a half pages about a certain phrase and what it means, using literal and figurative examples, then uses it about fifteen times in the next three chapters. ~ Me2
-->The phrase "in the dark," as I'm sure you know, can refer not only to one's shadowy surroundings, but also to the shadowy secrets of which one might be unaware. Every day, the sun goes down over all these secrets, and so everyone is in the dark in one way or another. If you're sunbathing in a park, for instance, but you do not know that a locked cabinet is buried fifty feet beneath your blanket, then you are in the dark even though you're not actually in the dark, whereas if you are on a midnight hike, knowing full well that several ballerinas are following close behind you, then you are not in the dark even if you are in fact in the dark. Of course, it is quite possible to be in the dark in the dark, as well as to be not in the dark not in the dark, but there are so many secrets in the world that it is likely that you are always in the dark about one thing or another, although the sun can go down so quickly that you may be in the dark about being in the dark in the dark, only to look around you and find yourself no longer in the dark about being in the dark nonetheless, not only because of the dark, but because of the ballerinas in the dark, who are not in the dark about the dark, but also not in the dark about the locket cabinet, and you may be in the dark about the ballerinas digging up the locked cabinet in the dark, [[MindScrew even though you are no longer in the dark about being in the dark, and so you are in fact in the dark about being in the dark, even though you are not in the dark about being in the dark,]] [[OverlyLongGag so you may fall into the hole the ballerinas have dug, which is dark, in the dark, in the park.]]

** ''{{Suikoden}}'' is the reigning champion of this trope, featuring 108 recruitable characters in each main game (of which there are five, so far), and that's not even counting the villains, significant [=NPCs=], optional bonus characters, and gaiden games. ~ [=ExplodingFrogs=]
** ''GiantRobo'' - its cast is mostly made from characters from ''Literature/WaterMargin'' and ''Literature/RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms'', and both of those ''already'' have LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters. ~ Impacto
** Series/{{Lost}} ~@/{{Storm}}, [=ZiggyZag=]
*** Series/{{Lost}} pales before most of these examples by numbers alone, but for a live-action TV show that has to cast actors for every role, it takes the cake. Over six seasons it has had at least '''twenty-seven''' actors billed as ''starring'', and some actors billed as guest stars have appeared in more episodes than credited characters in a season. Your average TV show has maybe five or six credited cast members, and even ensemble shows don't usually have more than twelve or so. And that's not even getting into the huge amount of ancillary characters!
** RealLife has over six billion characters all with detailed backstories, hidden depths and more! ~ Luthen, @/KingClark
*** Not only that, but many of them have created their own characters, [[TheMultiverse thus adding to the expanding list of characters that simply exist somewhere]]. Keep in mind that these are the only ones we ''know'' about, too! - @/TheAlbinoPrimid
*** To give you an idea of just how fully developed the characters are, Frank Warren observed "Every single [''Real Life'' character] has at least one secret that would break your heart." ~ @/DevilsAdvocate
*** That's not even counting the billions of characters who were KilledOffForReal! Each of these, of course, ''also'' have detailed backstories and horrible secrets! [[{{God}} Whoever wrote this]] really put a lot of effort into it! ~ @/ZettaToad
** Franchise/{{X-Men}}. 40+ mutants who've been on the main team alone! ~Ingonyama, @/{{Carla}}
** {{MUGEN}}. Full stop. ~Mapi-chan
** ''Literature/{{Xanth}}''. Take a couple of basic characters. Now take all of their descendants, anyone they or their descendants have ever met, all of ''their'' descendants, anyone any of ''them'' met, and also a bunch of random people no one's seen before. You now have the cast of Xanth. ~Canonier
** ''KnightsInTheNightmare''. "Over 200 characters," to quote Sting. ~ThePhantomSquee
** ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros''. At least a few thousand unique characters, not counting the species of generic mooks and various other life. More when you consider the spinoffs. Every single one pretty much has a fanbase too. -cheat-master30
** ''SonicTheHedgehog'' ~ Ozimul
** Franchise/FireEmblem. Pick 2 games in the series; you probably now have 100 characters, and that's not even counting the {{Mook}}s. - Malkyrian
** [[Creator/JRRTolkien Tolkien's]] legendarium. Just look at the family trees in the back of Literature/TheLordOfTheRings, and that's not even half of them!
*** Seconded. ~ Me2
** Franchise/{{Transformers}}.-Gorank
** ''Franchise/OnePiece''. Hope you remember that random mook from 400+ chapters back, because he's ''absolutely vital to the story.'' ~ TheEvilDrBolty
** VisualNovel/AceAttorney: There is about 130+ characters, counting the dead ones. Each have a different face (including the dead ones,) personality, outfit, etc. Not counting the dead ones, there's about 70+ .-{{Stickmeister0}}
** FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends has 150+ recurring imaginary friends. -{{Stickmeister0}}
** VideoGame/{{Tekken}} ~ {{Nirao 01}}
** According to Literature/TheWheelOfTime Encyclopedia, the series has nearly ''[[http://www.encyclopaedia-wot.org/ 1900]]'' characters and counting. That's named characters only, by the way, and while most of these are admittedly minor characters, if they have a name they'll probably be in at least two scenes. ~ {{deeman45}}
** Franchise/HarryPotter
** ''InfiniteSpace'' has 130+ characters. It will take three runs to complete the in-game character database. ~ {{Clae}}
** ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' ~ Inky Mc Inkerson
** ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''. From ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' onward, the main games in the series contain 800-1000+ named characters. ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline'' has over '''11,000''' named characters on its own. ~ @/{{Dawnwing}}
** ''[[{{VideoGame/Tobal}} Tobal 2]]''. Over 200 playable characters. Quite impressive for a fighting game that predates {{VideoGame/MUGEN}} by roughly two years. ~ Interceptor
