I don't think Ron Weasley would count as a Jerkass, even at his worst. Yes, pretty much any character acts like a jerk at some point. But no, this does not instantly make them a Jerkass.

  • Ron Weasley. Okay, we get that he's tired of being Overshadowed by Awesome (kind of an occupational hazard of being the best friend of one of the most famous wizards of all time), but was that his entire excuse for calling Harry an "attention-seeking prat", ignoring him when both of them were angry on Hermione's behalf, and generally treating him like shit? If it was, dude... You're an asshole! He wisens up after the First Task, though.
    • It's not his only reason though, because Ron thinks that Harry really did put his own name in the Goblet but didn't tell him about it, despite Ron explicitly mentioning that he wants to enter the competition. Not only did Harry do more Attention-Whoring, but he couldn't be bothered to include Ron in it.

Have to agree the entry is not accurate. It smells like bashing, honestly.

Yes, definitely. It sounds like bashing. To say of him as such would be considered Ron the Death Eater.

The Xanatos Roulette trope put in the article I think is off. It's seem's more a Xanatos Gambit as Crouch Jr. kept manipulating things to keep the plan on track and make sure Harry would win. All he need was Harry survive to make it to the maze and then as he put he "left [Harry's] path clear" If Cedric had done as Harry said, Crouch would've imperious him to make him help Harry to the cup and on to Voldemort.

Ron Weasley's Line after an instance of being "Distracted By The Sexy" goes something like "you know how I get around girls 'when they walk".

Potential Fetish fuel and possibly other sex/shipping Tropes there as the reader wonders wether he means "The Bits Upon Which They Walk" (Legs)? or "The Bit Upon Wich They Sit When They have Finished Walking" ( Butts)?

I think what he's talking about is not being able to ask a girl to the Yule Ball because they're always in in girlsgroups together (the only exception is Hermione Granger..her only friend appears to be Ginny)
