"WHAT A BITCH!"
A good example of a well written mean popular girl character
Another example of the mean popular girl character, but with a male counterpart. Just like the previous image above, he's also well written and funny

The Mean Popular Girl (known as the "Alpha Bitch" or "Queen Bee") is a stock character in most TV shows or movies or video games that take place in a high school setting. They're usually portrayed as a teenage girl who is popular among the school but is often mean and prissy to less popular girls, mostly towards the main female protagonist. She is usually very attractive and often has sidekicks following her everywhere.

Male variants of that cliché also exist too where they're called The Mean Popular Boy (known as "Alpha Bastard").

Why This Cliché Sucks

  1. It’s basically a carbon copy (especially tsundere) of the Bully cliché, but female.
  2. They’re just there to go up to the main protagonist and bully them for the sake of their characters, serving no purpose other than to pad a scene out.
  3. They are more annoying and hateful than hilarious.
  4. They don’t have or show any motive or reason to bully the female protagonist, making their vendetta against the main character unjustifiable and unnecessary.
  5. What makes their mean-spirited attitude towards the main character more unreasonable is that the main character didn't do anything mean to them, in fact, in some shows like the C-Students pilot and Pixel Pinkie, the main female characters were trying to be nice to them, so that makes the Alpha Bitch's hatred towards the protagonist more pathetic.
  6. They usually get absolutely no character development whatsoever.
  7. When these so-called “side antagonists” do serve a purpose, they just cause problems and conflict for the protagonist to get the plot going to the direction that the writer wants it to.
  8. Some of them are so chatty and talkative that you wish they could shut up.
  9. They are pretty much Karma Houdini's, meaning that they get no consequences for actions.
  10. They often stand out victorious from humiliating their victim protagonist.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Some of them are loved by fans and aren't mean-spirited.
  2. Most of them do get comeuppance from the characters.
  3. Not all of them are mean-spirited to the point of doing physical abuse.
  4. Although it's a minority, some of them do get character development, such as Amity Blight, Diamond Tiara, Silver Spoon, Regina George, Quinn Fabray, Santana Lopez, Kitty Wilde, Miu Kazashiro, The Dazzlings, Chanel Oberlin, Chanel #3, Chanel #5, Pacifica Northwest, Ronnie Anne Santiago, Wildernessa, Chloé Bourgeois, Penny Peterson, Ami Kawashima, Katsuki Bakugo, Numberblock, John F. Kennedy, and Diana Cavendish.
  5. Some of them do have a reason to dislike the main protagonist. For example, in Clone High, JFK hates Abe Lincoln because he took his girlfriend (Cleopatra) away from him.
  6. Tsundere is a Japanese term for a character development process that depicts a person who is initially cold (and sometimes even hostile) before gradually showing a warmer, friendlier side over time.

Jeanette Miller Chippette well thanks I guess for at least giving an answer but my criticisms are that people just add random villainous characters here even if they are not popular and this page was meant for this characters that are like Regina George these bullies that are popular, trope popular in school but adding random villains like Jasper from Steven Universe, (I removed her though) is like saying Deadpool and Iron Man are the same type of hero when in reality Deadpool is a on and off jerk who is also a villain often but does heroic stuff occasionally and Iron man is a businessman genius who built himself a robot suit and while makes some human mistakes is never truly outright villainous, (but maybe but I have no idea there are some incarnations were he acted like a bad guy) so I hope I managed to explain my issues with the examples.

Even though I don´t like KawaiiTaylor2006 for being immature and toxic by sending death threats, I wouldn´t consider her The Mean Popular Girl of Vyond, because there are already so many people that hate her too. I´m not the only one who hates KawaiiTaylor2006 for her bad actions.
