Bratty Half Pint / Video Games

  • Leon in Star Ocean: The Second Story.
  • Roger in Star Ocean: Till the End of Time.
  • Lymle in Star Ocean: The Last Hope. The voice actress might be the real culprit on this one, not the script/characterization ... it's hard to tell. She talks slow because she's catatonic, but is otherwise played up as a Tsundere, so it's more the latter.
  • Tales Series:
    • Chelsea in Tales of Destiny.
    • Genis in Tales of Symphonia was bratty at times, but was actually smarter than the main character...and pretty much every character in the game for that matter. And he knew it. Of course, this didn't stop Raine from slapping Genis upside the head whenever he got too carried away.
    • Rubia Natwick in Tales of the Tempest, pre-character development, combines this and Tsundere.
    • Anise Tatalin in Tales of the Abyss, along with being a Gold Digger engaging in Troubling Unchildlike Behaviour by trying to marry anyone with any money or influence.
    • Karol in Tales of Vesperia may come across this way to some pre-character development, due to having a Small Name, Big Ego and being a Cowardly Lion who'll often desert your party just as a battle begins.
    • Elle Mel Marta from Tales of Xillia 2. She doesn't like being treated like a kid and pretends to be more mature, when she isn't, including pretending that she isn't scared of lightning or thunder. While the party in general is nice to her and pity her for her current situation, she always acts like a brat with majority of them. The only ones she is really nice around are Ludger, Alternate Milla and slowly begins to warm up to Gaius after Alternate Milla sacrifices herself.
  • Suikoden
    • Luc in the first three games is this. He makes it clear he has no interest in participating in your righteous war, is only voluntarily helpful when he has a personal vendetta and otherwise spends most of his time baiting the rest of your party. He also happens to be the strongest magician you recruit. Even as he gets older through the games, thanks to his immaturity and immortality remains in this trope.
    • Ted in Suikoden IV is also this. Notable in that he shares the same Star of Destiny slot as Luc.
  • Mission Vao in Knights of the Old Republic. Subverted when Zaalbar, her Wookiee companion, is the one who ends up getting kidnapped and in need of rescuing.
  • Palom from Final Fantasy IV.
  • Relm from Final Fantasy VI is a female example.
  • Eiko from Final Fantasy IX is another female example, and one often accused of being The Scrappy.
  • Yuffie acts exactly like that in Crisis Core, though she gets better during the events of Final Fantasy VII.
  • Melodia from Bahamut Lagoon is another female one... Squaresoft loves this trope.
  • Nash from Lunar: The Silver Star falls into this despite being one of the older members of a party made up of young teens...
  • Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance.
    • Soren. Normally, his mouthiness is restricted to disapproving arguments. However, there is one notable scene where he nearly gets himself killed by hurling derogatory terms at a man who can turn into a frickin' tiger. This is subverted later after we learn on his past and his hatred of sub-hum...sorry laguz.
    • Empress Sanaki is shown to be a bratty half pint who uses her power to make cruel jokes. However, she also helps the heroes quite a bit.
  • Roan in Grandia II is a subversion. He's introduced as being a whiny brat who demands that the party go get his mommy's pendant, but when he decides to go do it himself and you run after him to rescue him, it turns out he doesn't need rescuing, though could still use more capable fighters' assistance. After he joins the party he's shown to actually be shockingly mature and Wise Beyond His Years. And to top it off, he turns out to be a prince, and subsequently a good king. And even the pendant was of vital importance
  • Cody Hackins in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is a snotty 7 year old fanboy who disrespects Phoenix, Edgeworth, Wendy Oldbag, and even The Judge, simply because they're "dumb adults" (Cody calls Phoenix this several times when Phoenix doesn't know the difference between the rarity of the Steel Samurai trading cards). However, if Mia talks to Cody, he'll suddenly become nice and do what she says. It probably has something to do with her obvious physical features.
  • Mercedes from Odin Sphere, but she got better.
  • Chrono Cross's Loads and Loads of Characters obviously have a few of these, including Korcha and his sister Mel.
  • This, combined with Breaking the Fourth Wall pretty well sum up Shoutaro from Flower, Sun and Rain. His Dad is an adult versionit's as annoying as it sounds.
  • The Scout from Team Fortress 2 is the youngest out of the 9 mercenaries — he seems to be a teenager, but is actually about 23 years old according to the Track Terrorizer's description. He has a big mouth and an ego to match.
  • Ronny Dobbs of Backyard Sports.
  • Baby Amelia Earhart (no, really) in Sam & Max: Freelance Police: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak. Several puzzles involve getting her to do what Sameth and Maximus want, which she never, ever does of her own volition. And when the Devil's Toybox gets stolen from various characters by various characters, she's the one who winds up with it in the end.
    • She gets better when she grows up; Sameth and Maximus' great-grandsons Sam and Max meet baby Amelia Earheart on Easter Island, but this time she's "baby" Amelia Earheart because she's been drinking out of the fountain of youth. She's not as active in the plot, but she's not such a bitch this time.
  • Popka from Klonoa.
  • Date Masamune's characterization in Samurai Warriors (when he isn't being a Smug Snake), especially in the first game, where even his character model is hilariously tiny compared to everyone else's, including Genki Girl Oichi.
  • Luna (but notably not Sena) from BlazBlue.
  • Laura from Silent Hill 2 is an infamous example, but it's not particularly unjustified after you find out about James' treatment of Mary.
  • A fair amount of the children in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim are incredibly obnoxious. Even worse are Jarl Balgruuf's kids, who are quick to belittle and mock you.
    • The apparently biggest bully in Whiterun is Braith, who happens to be a girl taking money from Lars Battleborn and making boasting taunts to the Dragonborn.
      • If you adopt a daughter with the Hearthfire DLC and have her live in Whiterun, she will complain about Braith's bullying (your son will make fun of Lars for not standing up to Braith).
    • Want to know how much they're annoying ? One of the most popular mod (and one of the first to have been made) was oen that made them killable.
  • Fallout 3 offers us Little Lamplight, a town entirely populated with children under 16. Most of them are okay kids, but Mayor MacCready and Princess play this trope straighter than straight. Since kids can't be killed, and the game forces you to go through the town to advance the main quest, you will be belittled by brats who are half your size and must listen to their smug death threats despite the fact you might be, by this point, wearing power armour, toting military grade weaponry and having a three-digits kill count. You might then understand why there are mods allowing you to viciously slaughter them. At least MacCready does get some redemption in Fallout 4 by showing up as both Older and Wiser.
  • Ram and Rom are this to their older sister Blanc in the Neptunia series, constantly causing her trouble. Ram is worse compared to her twin though, because she antagonizes Blanc and Nepgear, even after joining the latter's team.
  • Aramis, from Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. In a rare inversion, he is rather well liked, due to creating the mad experiment that is the Gag Penis zombie.
  • Jr. Troopa is very annoying. He initially seems like a temporary roadblock in the first part of the game, but he quickly proves himself to be more of a nuisance than a threat. He reappears multiple times throughout the game to try getting his revenge against Mario. Still, even if you find this guy to be a pain, he does give you a great amount of experience.
  • Angelia Avalonne is this in Arcana Heart with most of her screentime involving acting superior to the other characters or bullying Fiona.
  • From UmJammer Lammy, as well as its soundtrack album Make It Sweet!, we have the baby bunny in "BABY BABY!!", who is shrill and demanding and keeps saying "gimme" this and "gimme" that, everything from normal things a baby would want, like food or a potty, to a "car, one that goes vroom!"
