A good example of a well written mean popular girl character
Another example of the 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 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 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. Most of them do get comeuppance from the characters.
  2. Not all of them are mean-spirited to the point of doing physical abuse.
  3. Although it's a minority, but some of them do get character development, such as Amity Blight, Diamond Tiara, Silver Spoon, Regina George, Quinn Fabray, Santana Lopez, Miu Kazashiro, The Dazzlings, Pacifica Northwest, Chloé Bourgeois, Ami Kawashima, Katsuki Bakugo, Numberblock , John F. Kennedy, and Diana Cavendish.

I'm VERY surprised that most of the characters on the list don't have a Loathsome Characters page because it either got deleted it nobody even bothered to create it.
