Alpha Bitch / Web Original

Go To

  • Brat has characters who are this.
  • Janice's frenemy with bad makeup from Why Not Janice? is a materialistic, insulting, condescending and patronizing entity who comes into Janice's life to incarnate the percfect strawwoman. She seems, however, perfectly aware of it. In a Q&A, Janice stated that she had a cringe-worthy experience in school, so this may have inspired this character.
  • Sooni from Tales of MU both uses and subverts this trope. While she starts out appearing to be a textbook Alpha Bitch, it quickly becomes clear that she's trying to live out a fantasy, with a Girl Posse made up of virtual slaves and little actual popularity.
  • Survival of the Fittest is a roleplay that focuses on high school students. So, it's not surprising that at least one pops up every version:

    • V1 has Helena Van Garrett, a Rich Bitch who bullied other students and was so unconcerned with her situation that her first action on the island was to fix up her hair. Naturally, she ends up the first death of the entire roleplay, by one of her bullying victims no less.
    • V2 has an entire clique of them known as "The Sisterhood." They're portrayed in varying degrees of sympathy.
    • V4 has Sally Connelly, another fashion-obsessed Rich Bitch who looks down on others. She also has a rivalry with Reiko Ishida (Nick Reid in SC).
    • V5 has several popular girls, but the three that fit this description the most are Amaranta Montalvo, Miranda Millers, and Stacey Mordetsky. However, all three girls are given Hidden Depths.
    • There are two in V6: Isabel Ramirez for the Senior class, and Jasmine King for the Juniors. Jasmine King is portrayed as someone with an Inferiority Superiority Complex, while Isabel... let's just say that once she gets onto the island, she discovers an even bigger thrill than bullying.

  • Trisha from The War Comms is an overblown caricature of this trope, which is probably why she also serves as a Butt-Monkey for the saner socks.
  • Thalia's Musings
    • Aphrodite, though somewhat subverted in that she has no Girl Posse and is excluded from the other Olympian cliques.
    • Hera is a straight example, being the queen of the gods and having her Girl Posse of Demeter and Hestia. Also she often puts down other gods and goddesses. She also often suffers humiliations due to her husband's chronic infidelities and having to put up with his bastard children on a daily basis.
  • Solange (Tansy Walcutt) of the Whateley Universe, complete with a perfect body, blonde hair, a girl posse, and sycophants. Worked her way up to queen of the Alphas at Whateley Academy before her downfall.
  • Ami in Sailor Nothing is one. She eventually pays dearly for it, becoming an instant Woobie in a single scene that's so horrific it makes the protagonists feel guilty for hating her. Aki is a subversion: she's pretty, popular and head of the Fashion Club, but she is (secretly) friends with the class weirdo and feels trapped by the superficiality of her life. After she's publicly humiliated and dethroned, she realizes it's the best thing that ever happened to her and turns out to be a pretty nice person.

  • Kelly from The Crazy Kids of Grade 5 is rich, spoiled, and thinks she is the leader of the 5th grade popular group.
  • Isabella fits this trope in Funny Business. Her first appearance involves telling Half Truths about the main character behind her back. In a flashback, the readers get to find out how she got that way.
  • Worm has the 3 bullies, Emma, Sophia, and Madison, who relentlessly bully the MC, Taylor. It gets so bad that they're the ones who trigger her powers, by stuffing her into a locker full of used pads and tampons. Emma gets her comeuppance late in the story when she finally lashes out and actually hits Taylor. Sophia's fate is far worse. Regent takes control of her body, uses her to infiltrate the Wards, damages her friendship with Emma, reveals her secret identity to her brother, threatens her mother with a crossbow, and almost hangs herself. Director Piggot, trying to avoid the panic a real "mind controller" would bring, orders Sophia not to tell anyone about this, and leaves her to rot in jail. And she never truly learns why Regent did it, until she learns Taylor's identity much later.
  • Sonya in Prolecto starts out as this. Then she becomes a succubus, and realizes that she finally looks like the monster she always was...and BREAKS.
  • Teela Tether from No Boys Dorm is this. Supposedly the richest and most powerful student at the Academy, she is determined to expose Lara No as not actually a student there. She enlists the Shadow Order, who carry out the wishes of the Academy's Elite students, to do so. She also asks a guy to the Academy Ball simply to stop him going with someone else, has the Shadow Order trash a girl's dorm room because her assignment was better written than Teela's, generally ruins really sweet moments, and- in the final episode of the season- actually tries to kill Lara with a garden rake.
  • On the first season of Cobra Kai, Yasmine fit this trope to a T. You have The Bully (albeit a psychological type who never physically engages) who demonstrates not a shred of humility or regard for anyone or anything but herself the whole season. Even her Beta Bitch, who unlike her does develop over the season, isn't a Morality Pet to her.
  • In The Gods Are Bastards they have twice turned up out of the blue (each time trailing two henchgirls, as per formula) to harass one of the female main characters. This generally turns out to be ill-advised.
  • Some of the Impichishmay children from Single Girl One Hundred Baby Challenge are this due to being mean or straight-up evil. The most major example has to be Natalie, as shown in her spin-off.
  • Wednesday encounters two in Adult Wednesday Addams. The first is a jogger who does not bother to pick up after her dog. The second is a reality TV star named Mackenzie Mace (played by Anna Akana, one of the executive producers).
