* {{Jerkass}}: Clark. There are many moments where he's nothing but downright cruel and abusive to people, even those who are on his side and trying to help--note the scene where he yells at the music teacher because of the way she taught the students to sing the school song.

* BadToTheBone: The movie's present-day sequence opens with a memorable shot of Eastside High having long slid into decay, with Music/GunsNRoses' "Welcome to the Jungle" blasting as delinquents throng the halls. This was one of the first times that song was used in the movies.

* WhatTheHellHero: The teachers get sick of Clark's belittling of them and extending his Jerkass attitude towards them and let him know it. Not that he really cares, at least initially. Then Benson and later, Mrs. Levias tear into him about it...

* SuicideDare: A rare case of someone trying to do this for the "victim's" own good. When Joe Clark runs into Sams (who had been expelled for dealing crack), who pleads to be let back into school, Joe drags him up to the roof of his building, gives him a very harsh lecture on what could happen to him if he keeps using crack, and then dares him to jump off. Sams breaks down in tears and refuses, making a promise to clean up his act, prompting Clark to give him another chance.
