I do believe Perry lost exactly one case on that show. So yes, Burger did win a case, though even after the case was over Perry went on to exonerate the person anyways.
Don't believe everything I say.

Pierce Hawthorne on Community

Dwight Schrute on The Office

Cordelia Chase on (the early years of) Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Lucille Bluth on Arrested Development
Naw man. Naw.
All of those characters are/were antagonists on some level, sure, but that antagonism makes perfect sense in the context of their characters. Pierce devolved into just being the dick character for a while, certainly, but Lucille was a different trope all together and Dwight always had some method to his madness and was rarely out to do anyone harm. Cordelia was set up to play to the bitchy "queen bee" archetype in order to break it, but even then she had moments of good intent and sympathy even in the first season when she was barely a character.

I'm recalling that interaction between Cyclops and Wolverine in the first X-Men Movie while Mystique was fooling about...

"Hey? How do I know that you're really you?"

"You're a dick."

Chief Strauss from Criminal Minds.

And I can't remember his name, but the Detective in Cracker that was upset about losing his partner was a total dick to the female detective. Even to the point of what he did to her towards the end.
