->''"They ruled the high school. Decided what was in, who was popular... it was kind of like the Soviet Secret Police if they cared a lot about shoes."''
-->--'''Series/{{Angel}}''', "Rm w/a Vu"

In a HighSchool series, there's pretty much always an evil popular girl. We'll call her the AlphaBitch and give her an entry of her own, otherwise she might tell all the cute boys that we have smelly man feet.

She always has a posse of well-dressed, mean girls with her (two to four girls at the minimum), who [[FlatCharacter don't really say anything]] except to parrot her opinions and attitudes--sort of the high school version of EvilMinions meets SatelliteCharacter. If the posse members are slightly more developed, expect at least a [[BetaBitch devoted second-in-command]] (who may or may not [[HiddenDepths be an insecure mess]]), [[BrainlessBeauty a pretty but dimwitted follower]] (who occasionally overlaps with the second-in-command), and possibly [[NaiveNewcomer a new girl]], who will be briefly suckered in by the AlphaBitch.

They are often GossipyHens as well. They are very unlikely to be AFriendInNeed, [[NoHonorAmongThieves even to each other]]. May also overlap with TerribleTrio[[note]]which has the AlphaBitch, the BetaBitch, and the BrainlessBeauty[[/note]].



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* The very first ''Anime/HellGirl'' episode deals with this topic, as the AlphaBitch Yoshimi Kuroda uses hers to make her rival Mayumi Yamaguchi's life total Hell.
* In the beginning of the series, Sae from ''Manga/PeachGirl'' basically had the ''whole school'' under her finger, most of the guys were head over heels for her, and some of the girls would frequently compliment her and follow her around.
* Nanami's trio of flunkies in ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', although they are more independent than usual (specially Keiko).
** That's for the anime only. Nanami doesn't appear in the manga in person (Only in a photo.), and the role of the posse is taken over by some real bitches.
* The Gambee pilots of ''Anime/StrainStrategicArmoredInfantry''.
* Chieko has a pair of them in ''Anime/AllPurposeCulturalCatGirlNukuNuku'' ''TV''. Except for one LowerDeckEpisode, all they did was pop up behind her saying, "Yes, what Chieko said is right." They had names, but it only highlighted how unimportant they were; "Hidariko" and "Migiko" translate to just "left-girl" and "right-girl".
* Natsumi, Minami and Kumi, the "partners-in-crime" of the UnluckyChildhoodFriend Otome Katou in ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays''. Otome herself is a subversion (she's popular at school, but is more of a [[YouGoGirl sportswoman]] than a cheerleader or RichBitch), but boy do these four act like school bullies when they're together and poor [[{{Ojou}} Kotonoha]] is near...
* Subversion: [[GossipyHens Julie and Charlotte]] attempt to become Layla's Girl Posse in ''Anime/KaleidoStar'' to get back at Sora for being TheFool, but thanks to some bits of CharacterDevelopment midway through the first season, not only they start being nicer to Sora, but they start helping Layla for ''selfless'' reasons and not to suck up to her.
* Yuki's fanclub in ''Manga/FruitsBasket''. The president of the club is Motoko, the AlphaBitch.
* Asai Yuriko, Yamano Minako, and Ayuhara Erika from ''Manga/HanaYoriDango'', though they don't have nearly the popularity or influence that the F4 does.
* Mihaya, Miyoko and Hiroka from ''NaruTaru'' are under the "orders" of one ''really'' nasty AlphaBitch named Aki Honda. [[spoiler: When one of their victims, Hiroko, gets sick of it and acquires a "mon" named Oni... Aki and Mihaya die in very gruesome manners, Hiroka gets thrown out a window, and Miyoko survives, but loses a leg.]]
* Subverted in ''Anime/DualParallelTroubleAdventure'', where Mitsuki Rara's posse are nice girls, they even perform a HeelFaceTurn later in the series.
* Kafuko from ''Anime/SpacePirateMito'' has a two-girl posse, who not only carry out her orders, but occasionally carry her and/or props for dramatic effect, and in one instance even gave a NoblewomansLaugh for her.
* In ''Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ'', the Princess' only friends are these, and once she ditched them over a fight. They then received powers from the dark Z rays, which made them posse anyone they wanted, inflating their ego and making them selfish, and when using their powers in conjunction with Princess' they actually made her stronger.
* Miyabi's teacher-hating schoolgirl gang in ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka''.
* ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'': Ange's classmates during her time at St. Lucia Academy.
* Even though they were clearly created with this trope in mind, Tenjouin Saki of ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' and her two followers are not left out of the characters given backgrounds to create decently well-rounded characters by themselves. Saki starts out as an {{Ojou}} antagonist, and then develops into her own character with her love interest outside of the main UnwantedHarem even.
* Subverted in ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}''. Ami picks up a posse as soon as she transfers to the school, but they're both nice girls who get along with the protagonist clique, and even tell Ami to dial it back when she gets bitchy.
* Megumi Furuta and Miyuki Sonobe from ''Manga/OniisamaE'', companions to [[AlphaBitch Aya Misaki]]. [[spoiler: Episode 30, however, gives them some HiddenDepths since they truly like and support Aya... and the Sorority seniors try to use their affection for her to their own benefit.]]
* In ''Manga/CandyCandy'', Eliza has a two-person one in the BoardingSchool arc. It's formed by BetaBitch Louisa and a redheaded FatGirl who [[NoNameGiven is never named in the story]].
* Akina Shinozaki of ''Manga/DontBecomeAnOtakuShinozakiSan'' was part of one in her middle school years. Her hopes to become part of a new one in high school were dashed when she was ill the first full week and all the cliques and posses had already formed by the time she could attend. She instead befriends otaku Kaede with the intent of making her "normal" only to become more of an otaku herself.

* ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'': "Imaginary Enemies" introduces Veronica Stackmore, daughter of the Mayor of Leadworth, [[AlphaBitch queen of Leadworth Primary School]], and ringleader of the gang that teases Amelia for her belief in [[NotSoImaginaryFriend the Raggedy Doctor]].
* AlphaBitch Elle Diablo leads the clique of popular girls who set out to make Becca's life at her new school hell in ''ComicBook/AllGhoulsSchool''.
* Diana and her followers in ''ComicBook/ZodiacStarforce'', which Josh describes as "a coven of [[Film/MeanGirls mean girl]] witches".

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9406757/12/One-Misfired-Spell-Later One Misfired Spell Later]]'' Fleur Delacour had one at Beauxbatons.

* ''Film/{{Heathers}}'' is named after the girl posse in the film, of which three out of four girls all have the given name "Heather". H. Chandler is the AlphaBitch, H. Duke is jealous of Chandler's power, H. [=McNamara=] is a meek follower, and Veronica is the newcomer who actually hates being part of the group and did it solely to become InWithTheInCrowd.
* A majority of the plot of ''Film/MeanGirls'' deeply delved into the phenomenon.
* ''Film/{{Jawbreaker}}'' is about how one of these fell apart.
* The Pink Ladies in ''Film/{{Grease}}'', to a degree.
** This movie actually had ''two'' sets of such posses (actually four, if you count both male and female). On the one side for each sex was the contingent of more prototypically 1950s kids who dress like model students, act (superficially) polite, and suck up to all the authority figures they can. Then there are the Pink Ladies and their male counterparts, the T-Birds, who wear tight pants and jackets, smoke, swear, play mean-spirited pranks, and generally act rude. Both cliques are shown to be flawed, but it's implied that [[SlobsVersusSnobs the Pink Ladies are somewhat less flawed]] [[AtLeastIAdmitIt because they're at least honest about their shortcomings]]. The lesson, I guess, is that it's not really fashion or attitude that makes you cool, but a lack of hypocrisy.
*** This dynamic was [[AffectionateParody affectionately parodied]] in Creator/JohnWaters's ''Film/CryBaby''. Despite coming from rather damaged backgrounds, the "Drakes" are completely tolerant and well-meaning while the "squares" border on sociopathic. Accordiing to John Waters, there [[TruthInTelevision actually were]] both "Squares" and "Drakes" in Baltimore around that time.
* The A Group from ''Film/RomyAndMichelesHighSchoolReunion''. Sadly, only one of them actually made something out of herself. When the leading AlphaBitch tries to embellish the success of her and the other members, the one who is successful lets out a YouKeepTellingYourselfThat.
* ''Film/BringItOn'' (and all of its sequels that I've seen) have the protagonist move in and out of this sort of clique.
* Penny from ''Film/SkyHigh'' herself is an entire Girl Posse (she can make copies of herself).
* ''Film/TheFinal'' has the bitch trio of Heather, Bridget and Kelly. Heather is the ringleader and main tormentor, Kelly is her just-as-bad [[TheDragon Dragon]] (although she is redeemed by the end, [[spoiler:[[DrivenToSuicide killing herself]] [[RedemptionEqualsDeath over what happens]] [[SurvivorGuilt to her friends]]]]), and Bridget eventually turns out to be much more sympathetic than the other two.
* Shelby's "ladies-in-waiting" in ''Film/ACinderellaStory'' seem to include the school's cheerleaders, notably Caitlyn and Madison, as well as Sam's stepsisters.

* Jessica Wakefield and her pals in the ''Literature/SweetValleyHigh'' books and TV series, and more specifically The Unicorn Club in the ''Sweet Valley Twins'' book series.
* A few of these appear in ''Literature/HarryPotter'', though they have little bearing on the plot, and usually only the leader of the group is named.
** [[AlphaBitch Pansy Parkinson]] is often described as being surrounded by her friends.
** Cho Chang also has a group of friends like this; however, she is much more sympathetic. True to form, all of Cho's friends scatter when she's distraught over [[spoiler: Cedric's death.]]
** There's also Romilda Vane, a minor character in the sixth book who has a group of friends that plot to spike Harry with a love potion. Did we mention they're fourteen?
** Draco, Crabbe, and Goyle are possibly a male version of this trope - while Crabbe and Goyle are intimidatingly bulky, they spend most of their time flanking Malfoy, who's better at smug remarks than violence.
** Harry lampshades the entire concept when forced to ask a girl to the Yule Ball.
-->'''Harry:''' Why do they have to move in packs? How're you supposed to get one on their own to ask one?\\
'''Ron:''' Lasso one?
* Sherrie Adams in ''Literature/CircleOfThree'' is the alpha girl of "The Graces," though the group slowly breaks apart throughout the series.
* In ''Literature/TheBabySittersClub'' there is Grace and Bebe for Cokie Mason and Jannie and Leslie for Pamela Harding.
* The whole point of ''Literature/TheClique''.
* Subverted in ''Discworld/AHatFullOfSky'': the teenage coven starts off looking like a Girl Posse to Anagramma, but gradually realise what a bitch she is, and start taking more of their lead from Tiffany, to the extent that Tiff has to persuade them to help Anagramma in ''Discworld/{{Wintersmith}}''.
* [=MacKenzie=], the AlphaBitch of ''Literature/DorkDiaries'', has one, the most prominent member being her best friend Jessica.
* In Michael C. Bailey's ''Literature/ActionFigures - Issue One: Secret Origins'', Carrie has been in one. They had no sympathy when her parents divorced, and she dropped them.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/TheBradyBunch'': The Boosters in the Season 4 episode "Today I Am a Freshman," the group Marcia wants to join. She ultimately doesn't--in part because she failed her initiation (thanks to Peter's volcano) and because she ultimately saw that this Girl Posse isn't whom she wanted to be associated with.
* Cordelia in early episodes of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' had a group of yes-girls, the Cordettes, which included future vampire Harmony. As shown in the quote, Angel later likened them to the {{KGB}}, but with nicer shoes. Cordelia's "friends" give her a taste of her own medicine when she starts to date Xander.
* [[AlphaBitch Libby]] and her [[FlatCharacter one-dimensional interchangeable]] goon squad from ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch''.
* Kate and her one-dimensional interchangeable cheerleading squad from ''Series/LizzieMcGuire''.
* Gigi's friends in ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace.'' They suck up to Gigi so much that they actually get plastic surgery so that their noses will look like hers.
* ''Literature/GossipGirl'' both plays this one straight (Kati, Isabel, Hazel, Penelope) and subverts it (The bespectacled Asian nerd who routinely receives the highest test scores of anyone in the school eventually becomes one of Blair's henchmen).
* Paris in ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' had her two sidekicks, Madeline and Louise, whilst she and Rory were at Chilton High.
* Santana and Brittany on ''Series/{{Glee}}''. In Season 1 when Quinn was the AlphaBitch, these two were her main right hand bitches. When Quinn became pregnant and kicked off the Cheerios, [[DivergentCharacterEvolution they got their own distinct personalities]] and became beloved characters in their own right.
* ''Series/SummerHeightsHigh'' has its version of the popular {{Alpha Bitch}}es who dubbed themselves [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owolyDIQ4NQ "The Hot Girls"]].
* Christine, the AlphaBitch of ''Series/DeadGorgeous'', has a band of loyal sychophants.
* Some of these appear as one-off characters in ''Series/TheGeorgeLopezShow''. One of the earlier ones were a trip of girls whom Carmen and her friend Toby tried to befriend--[[KidsAreCruel they were mercilessly cruel to Toby]] and even made Carmen turn against her so she could be popular like them. [[FalseFriend And no, they weren't even nice to Carmen either.]]
* ''Series/{{Community}}'' gave this trope a great sendup in the episode "The Aerodynamics of Gender". Britta, Annie, and Shirley decided to take a Women's study course for some girl time, but are taken aback when Abed says he wants to go too. A Girl Posse of 3 {{Alpha Bitch}}es (One of which is played by Music/HilaryDuff) start harassing them, and Abed quickly zings them back without breaking a sweat. [[spoiler: Rather than thank him and call it a day, Britta, Annie, and Shirley decide they can use this to their advantage and send Abed to insult every girl in school that has ever been mean to them. Eventually, Britta, Annie, and Shirley's egos completely swell and they become the ruling Girl Posse of {{Alpha Bitch}}es themselves.]]. Also, because it's Abed, there's a parody of Franchise/{{Robocop}} in there. But Britta thinks he's saying "Rowboat Cop".
* Nicely subverted on ''Series/FreaksAndGeeks''. Vicki Applebee is the show's resident AlphaBitch, but even most of the other popular girls at [=McKinley=] High (including Cindy Sanders) have a problem with her. And Cindy, probably one of the most popular girls at [=McKinley=] herself, is nice to everyone on the social totem pole .
* Played with in ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'': the four main characters were the girl posse to Alison [=DiLaurentis=], who is, of course, [[DeathByOriginStory dead]]. Now, the other four effectively remain this, but without a clear leader. Also, the four of them increasingly become social outcasts as the story progresses.
* In ''Series/TheWorstYearOfMyLifeAgain'', Nicola Grey has one.

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* The aptly named 'Posse' (Zuma, Redondo, and [=LaJolla=]) in ''{{Zits}}'', although they tend to be gossips more than bullies.
* Lucy, [[ThoseTwoGuys Patty, Violet]] and occasionally Frieda were an elementary-school version of this trope in ''{{Peanuts}}''.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* The Minnesota Home Wrecking Crew, The Radiant Rain and The Lovely Lacey, perhaps putting on their best display of this trope Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} where they picked up a third member in "Coventry's Loudest" Jetta and became the International Home Wrecking Crew.
* Don't you think Evolution was a sort of male Girl Posse? They wore fancy suits and Rolex watches away from the ring, and would team up to bully the likes of Wrestling/{{Kane}} and Wrestling/MickFoley while in it. Wrestling/TripleH, of course, was the AlphaBitch, with Wrestling/RicFlair as a sort of "AlphaBitch emeritus." Then I'd say Wrestling/{{Batista}} had the Velvet Sky/Victoria position and Wrestling/RandyOrton filled the Madison Rayne/Candice Michelle role.
* The Home Wrecking Crew would later encounter a rival posse in Team Blondage, Amber O'Neal, Krissy Vaine, Lollipop and [=GeeStar=]. Luckily for those sharing locker rooms with them, Blondage are rarely encountered in larger numbers than two. (O'Neal and [=GeeStar=] [[TheRival don't always get along]])
* Vince's Devils, Wrestling/TorrieWilson and Candice were already hanging out like best friends by the time they moved to ''Raw'' (from ''[=SmackDown!=]'') and underwent a FaceHeelTurn. They teamed up with [[Wrestling/LisaMarieVaron Victoria]] for the sole purpose of tormenting the new girl from the Diva search, Ashley. There was some HoYay between Victoria and Candice and Torrie bought a dust mop dog, so she could rub its ass in the faces of their opponents.
* In a rare example of a gimmick that Wrestling/{{TNA}} has done to perfection, Wrestling/TheBeautifulPeople are a stunning example of the trope in wrestling. Started with Wrestling/AngelinaLove as the AlphaBitch, Wrestling/VelvetSky as the BetaBitch and Wrestling/MadisonRayne as their personal butt kisser (Omega Bitch perhaps?). Later Love got deported so Sky and Rayne became co Alpha Bitches with Lacey Wrestling/{{Von Erich|Family}} in the role of the BrainlessBeauty who follows the other two.
* Though it's only two people, this is still more or less the gimmick of Team Wrestling/LayCool (Layla and Michelle [=McCool=]) in the Wrestling/{{WWE}}.
* Essentially what [[Wrestling/BellaTwins Team Bella]] are now, especially now that the twins have added Wrestling/AliciaFox to the roster.
** Fellow Diva revolutionaries Team B.A.D. and Team PCB could count as well, though the latter is more likable.

* Charlotte, Cassie, and Molly in ''Theatre/{{Thirteen}}'' serve as this for [[SpoiledSweet Kendra]] and [[AlphaBitch Lucy]]
* The bird girls in ''SeussicalTheMusical'' are Mayzie's girl posse as well as being a GreekChorus
* ''CyranoDeBergerac'': This play is not set in high school, but De Guiche has the SpearCounterpart to the Girl Posse: The Cool Crowd, a crowd of hangers-on who bow to his every whim and help him victimize whomever he decides to pick on (or, in the case of Viscount De Valvert, they at least try to help De Guiche victimize Roxane and Cyrano). Lampshaded by the Marquises in Act I, Scene III, when one of them recognizes they donít like De Guiche, but itís best to make their bow to him:
--> '''First marquis''' ''(watching De Guiche, who comes down from Roxane's box, and crosses the pit surrounded by obsequious noblemen, among them the Viscount de Valvert)'': He pays a fine court, your De Guiche!
--> '''Second Marquis''': Faugh!. . .Another Gascon!
-->'''First Marquis''': Ay, but the cold, supple Gasconóthat is the stuff success is made of! \\
Believe me, we had best make our bow to him.
* ''Theatre/{{Heathers}}'' has the Heathers and Veronica.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Raspberyll has one of these in the form of Asuka and Kyoko in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}'' - Of course, since the Netherworld generally counts being an asshole as a ''good'' thing, the posse's decided that they'll earn their delinquency points by being the biggest goody-two-shoes they can hope to be.
* ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'' has the softball juniors for [[TheOjou Sasami]]. Each time Rin fights with Sasami, she must battle them first: they're weak, and hold half-eaten food owned by Sasami to heal themselves. Apart from this and, at one point, [[KickTheDog kicking a cat]] to enrage [[KindheartedCatLover Rin]], they do exactly nothing plot-worthy. Riki even refers to them as minions at one point.

* ''Webcomic/EerieCuties'': Melissa Hellrune ([[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/(chapter_9)_big_girls_do_not_cry pictured here]]) was the leader of her own clique [[AllGhoulsSchool at Charybdis Heights.]] As seen, she antagonized Layla Delacroix, by trying to dethrone her as the school's most popular girl and [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/(preferably_me) plotted to steal her boyfriend]] while she was at it.
* Before her fall from grace, Morita in ''RedString'' had a couple of lackeys-- one with pigtails and one with short black hair. They followed her around and almost never said anything, but giggled and smirked at Morita's cruelty.
* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Lucy and Rhoda are flunkies to queen bee Diane at Moperville South HS as seen [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2004-12-08 here]]. Mildly subverted in Lucy's downright flippant and sarcastic manner towards Diane and Diane actually caring about Rhoda.
* Subverted in ''[[http://cheer.thewotch.com/index.php?date=20051027 Cheer!]]'' twice: The Ekaltsew Cheer team, who are shown as buffoonish and stupid would-be enemies of the Tandy Cheer team, and with Sarah and Karen, who eventually abandon their leader, Tamara, after one hare-brained revenge scheme too many.
* ''PennyAndAggie'' has Penny's group consisting of Sara, Michelle, and later also Katy-Ann and Brandi, who [[SubvertedTrope Subverts]] the trope since the girls actually care about each other. It is however PlayedStraight with Karen's Meg, Samantha, Charlotte and Cyndi.
* Felicia Laine, with her unnamed cat and squirrel, in ''Webcomic/OzyAndMillie''.
* The high school of ''Webcomic/{{Loserz}}'' also has them. See [[http://the-qlc.com/loserz/go/430 this strip]].
* [[BittersweetCandyBowl Daisy]] briefly falls in with one of these, but is dumped by them later on. Subverted in that a few members of the group later reveal that the "leader" of the posse was not much liked by THEM either, so they continue to hang out with Daisy.
* In ''EverydayHeroes'', Goldie was the queen of Jane's high school. The trope is somewhat subverted in that Goldie seemed to be a benevolent despot. Jane was set to inherit the title during her senior year [[spoiler: until she dropped out of school]].
* ''{{Drowtales}}'': [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?id=413 from left to right]]: [[TheChick Kyo]], [[LovableAlphaBitch Chrys]], [[EmotionlessGirl Naal]], [[ServileSnarker Shinae]], and [[TheLadette Kiel]]. Subverted when [[spoiler: Chrys and Kyo are wrongfully imprisoned, Naal turns out to be the IllGirl, Shinae is shown to be a JerkassWoobie, and Kiel's [[HeroWithAnFInGood dream]] job is to be the [[FourthWallObserver series]]' KnightInShiningArmor.]]
* In ''Webcomic/{{Dreamkeepers}} Prelude'', [[http://www.dreamkeeperscomic.com/Prelude.php?pg=159 objecting to Lilith]].
* ''Webcomic/AliceAndTheNightmare'' has Elsie, Tillie and Lacie of the "mean girl" variety - they latch onto Alice as the Queen's protege and practice FantasticRacism against Edith.

[[folder:Web Originals]]
* Sooni of ''Literature/TalesOfMU'' got her CatGirl Girl Posse the old fashioned way: daddy bought them for her.
* Ami, Emi, Umi, and, at least in the beginning, Aki in ''Literature/SailorNothing''.
* The Sisterhood of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'''s Bathurst High, most of them probably having about the same AlphaBitch levels. V3 character Melina Frost's profile refers to her having been the leader of a similar group at Southridge, but this never came up.
* Cho is almost constantly surrounded by Lavender and Pansy in ''AVeryPotterMusical'', similar to what she was portrayed as having in ''Literature/HarryPotter''.
* WhateleyUniverse examples: at SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy, Solange has her Girl Posse of Flicker and Fade. Hekate has her own posse of Spellbinder and Conjure [[spoiler: until she's forced to flee from a Sidhe curse]], and the Yellow Queen has the rest of the Whateley Martial Arts Cheerleaders (even though Whateley has no intermural sports teams).
* In ''TheCrazyKidsOfGrade5'', Kelly is surrounded by her posse of Shelley and Nelly.
* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' has Emma, Sophia, and Madison, three girls who managed, through a prolonged campaign of abuse, to drive the protagonist Taylor into a nervous breakdown and TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening before the events of the story, and continue this abuse throughout.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* [[AlphaBitch Mandy]] and her [[FlatCharacter two best friends]], Dominique and Caitlin, in ''TotallySpies''. Mandy didn't seem to have any friends outside of them, because whenever she wasn't with either one or both of them, she didn't really hang out with anyone else (Dominique and Caitlin seemed closer to each other than to Mandy).
** [[spoiler: Dominique and Caitlin got written out of the series after the first episode of the fifth season, and got replaced by Mandy's cousin, ''Mindy'', who's basically just like Mandy, except she's a DarkSkinnedBlonde with a Southern accent]].
* The Ashleys in ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'', with Ashley A. (usually) as the AlphaBitch.
* ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'': Mertle has possibly the youngest posse, who take the "parrot her opinions" duty to the extreme - Mertle insults Lilo, they say in unison, "''Ye-e-e-ah.''"
* In ''AsToldByGinger'' things are turned on their heads a little, while Courtney Gripling is the leader of the Lucky Junior High girl posse it is her second-in-command, Miranda Killgallen, who acts like the AlphaBitch. Courtney herself is the LovableAlphaBitch who has several satellites following her around.
* The show ''AngelaAnaconda'' had Nanette Manoire and the Copy-Cat Clone Club, who, whenever Nanette came up with a plan, the first would typically say, "That's a great idea!" And the second would parrot, "Well, I think that's a great idea EVEN MORE".
* Sierra leads one of these in ''WesternAnimation/TheReplacements''.
* Heather's Alliance qualifies as one in ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland''.
* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''--there, neither the AlphaBitch Bonnie nor [[TheCheerleader head cheerleader]] Kim has any kind of girl posse.
** Though some fanfics tend to place the cheerleaders [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110205041545/kimpossible/images/0/00/Hope.jpg Hope]] and [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110205043706/kimpossible/images/1/1b/Jessica.jpg Jessica]] as Bonnie's posse.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' both uses this and subverts it; Azula's posse are fully realized characters in their own right, and [[LadyOfWar Mai]] and [[CloudCuckooLander Ty]] [[SheFu Lee]] are not [[PsychoSupporter exactly enthusiastic supporters]]. In fact, they ''have'' largely been told by the would-be-future ruler of the world that they have no choice, Mai's [[EmotionlessGirl boredom with life]] aside. Despite this, and their eventual, perhaps inevitable break with her, they ''are'' a [[DarkActiongirl terrifically efficient fighting force]], and are wise enough to keep their ruthless leader happy, as far as she can be. To their opponents, their front must seem incredibly unified and as intimidating as any group of mindless minions, even when the target is not cornered by a locker or such.
** Another (very minor) Girl Posse appears in the episode ''Tales Of Ba Sing Se'', where they pick on Toph and call her ugly. Though Toph and Katara deal with them and send them packing in the end.
* The Fashion Club from ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' is an atypical example, for a few reasons. For one, DivergentCharacterEvolution kicked in so that each of the four girls [[AlphaBitch eventually]] [[LovableLibby had a]] [[AsianAirhead distinct]] [[ExtremeDoormat personality]], and to a degree, CharacterDevelopment (especially Quinn, who is the title character's sister, and in the last season Stacy). Furthermore, they usually had their own subplots instead of being antagonists; instead of bullying less popular students, they tended to focus on [[WithFriendsLikeThese each other]].
* Paige Logan from ''{{Grossology}}'' is usually accompanied by a pair of sidegirls. In one episode, she orders them to floss her teeth (to their credit, they refuse).
* Eve and Tori are the Girl Posse of [[TheCheerleader Beth]] in the ''Toys/PollyPocket'' animated movies. The pre-cutant ones, at least. While they don't have any ill feelings towards Polly and her friends and even question Beth on why she hates Polly, they let her boss them around. To their credit, [[spoiler: when Polly's band got to play on a school event despite Beth's efforts to prevent it from happening, they decided to enjoy the show instead of put up with Beth's rants.]] Too bad it didn't keep them from helping her in subsequent movies.
* [[GangOfBullies Portia, Gwen and Penny]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyB''.
* From ''WesternAnimation/SofiaTheFirst'', Amber, Clio, and Hildegard, the most popular princesses at Royal Prep; [[LovableAlphaBitch Nicer than]] [[DownplayedTrope most examples though]].
* The Cheerleaders (including [[AlphaBitch Kimmy]]) in ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan''. Ilana attempts to join their cheerleading squad, to which they snide at her. She ends up being the one to help them hide when a [[MonsterOfTheWeek Mutraddi]] invades the high school. Kimmy is still mean to Ilana, but her friends point out that Ilana ''is'' helping them. After Kimmy hooks up with Octus, some of her posse also gradually acts nicer toward the trio.
* ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries'', Gem is usually accompanied by a group of girls, and likes to yell orders to them.
* The Glamazons in ''WesternAnimation/{{Detentionaire}}'', led by AlphaBitch Kimmie. Her BetaBitch, Brandy, actually [[SubvertedTrope turns out]] to not be so bad and [[HiddenDepths a good friend]], and even Kimmie gets [[CharacterDevelopment developed]] later.
