! Gary
Gary is a reformed bully at Dexter's school who only appeared in the episode "Accent You Hate." He constantly harassed kids with funny accents, his most notable victims being Dexter (Russian accent) and his friends Lucky (Irish accent) and Pierre (French accent). He wore a t-shirt that read, "I Hate Kids with Funny Accents." By the end of the episode, Gary turned out to like kids with funny accents due to getting hit in the face by a statue, distorting his own voice; his t-shirt now reads, "I ♡ Kids with Funny Accents."

* TheUnfavourite: His parents usually love him and his sister Dee Dee equally, but one notable instance of this trope is in "Oh, Brother", where Dexter turning his sister Dee Dee into a brother named Doo Dee resulted in Doo Dee getting all the attention while Mom and Dad ignored Dexter.
