What is the name "The Libby" referring to?

Older name of Alpha Bitch. A character in some show that was the Trope Namer.

Specifically the character from Sabrina the Teenage Witch

How important is it for these characters to be popular? It seems like many examples are either never actually said to be popular or are disliked by most people (and the hero seems to be more popular). Is it enough if they just act superior?

This trope should not have a "Real Life" folder and should be added to the "No Real Life Examples, Please!" folder.

Yes, girls like this do exist in real life, unfortunately; however, the Alpha Bitch trope easily falls under several "Evil" tropes, and the usual site policy is not to call real life people evil.

The redirect has more than 1000 inbounds. No reason to cut.

Why was this renamed?

Because someone pushed the argument that not all readers would be familiar with the name "Libby", or willing to read the first paragraph to find out what the trope was about before using it. If you feel that means this site is in a race to the bottom as far as standards go, well that is up to you. But non-instant recognition was the reason.

I'm shocked it went through - but I approve. The Libby reference was just not widely enough known. Even know I ... can't remember the trope namer. (Now if it had been The Cordelia...)
