Jerkass Homer is a trope named after the season 9 episode "The Joy of Sect" when Homer said "Outta my way, jerkass!" Since then, the trope has been used to define when Homer has been, well, a jerkass. To find out bad/good qualities about his flanderized self, click here. Luckily, it was toned down once the HD seasons began.
- Homer Simpson in: 'Kidney Trouble' (Episode 8 - The first episode to involve this trope, as Homer refuses to let his father go to the bathroom and, when his kidneys explode, refuses to give him a kidney transplant (Dr. Hibbert eventually steals one of Homer's kidneys whilst he's unconscious).)
- Saddlesore Galactica (Episode 13 - There's a mild example at the beginning when Homer pretends to be a PTSD-stricken Vietnam veteran in order to gain free admission to an amusement park, and later insults Comic Book Guy for pointing out how similar the premise of the episode is to Season 3's "Lisa's Pony".)
- Alone Again, Natura-Diddly (Episode 14 - Causes the death of Maude Flanders through his own stupidity. However, he did try to make up for it.)
- It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Marge (Episode 21 - Snipes Marge with a tranquilizer dart at the end just to get off doing chores.)
- Simpson Safari (Episode 17 - Causes the bag boys of Springfield to go on strike after tormenting one of them, calls out the people who made Animal Crackers, rudely demands a vacation and even throws a spear at a warrior for no reason!)
- Old Yeller-Belly (Episode 19 - He gets mad at Santa's Little Helper for not helping with the fire and mistreats him as if he didn't have a dog.)
- Co-Dependents Day (Episode 15 - Framed his own wife for drunk-driving. No joke.)
- On a Clear Day I Can't See my Sister (Episode 11 - Puts a flathead screwdriver at the end of Lisa's stick she uses to keep Bart away (as well as physically and mentally torture him).)
- The Boys of Bummer (Episode 18 - Joined the rest of the town in harassing Bart for losing the Little League World Series because he was "the man who created him" and didn't want to get harassed as well.)
- Polluted Lake Springfield, caused the entire town to be trapped in a dome and later nearly got it nuked off the face of the Earth.
- Papa Don't Leech (Episode 16 - Imagined suffocating his own father to death.)
