* The "Dead End Kids" series from the 1930s, switching between the main characters and the supporting players, eventually becoming the Bowery Boys (and sliding into BMovie territory) when the actors got too old to play teens. In ''Film/TheyMadeMeACriminal'' they are petty criminals (vandalism, burglary) who have been sent out to a date farm in Arizona in order to get straightened out.

* The "Dead End Kids" series from the 1930s, switching between the main characters and the supporting players, eventually becoming the Bowery Boys (and sliding into BMovie territory) when the actors got too old to play teens. They were somewhat more hard-edged in their film debut ''Film/{{Dead End|1937}}'', in which they assault and rob a rich kid, and one of them has to be stopped from slicing another's face with a knife. In ''Film/TheyMadeMeACriminal'' they are petty criminals (vandalism, burglary) who have been sent out to a date farm in Arizona in order to get straightened out.

* ''Manga/CromartieHighSchool'' has an entire cast of delinquents (and a robot delinquent...and a gorilla...and Freddie Mercury), though they mostly spend their time [[BadassOnPaper talking about who they think is the toughest, rather than proving it by having a brawl]]. If you haven't guessed it yet, this is one great big parody of delinquent manga.
* Kouji Kabuto from ''Anime/MazingerZ'' skipped school and used rough language.
* ''Manga/{{Beelzebub}}''
** Tatsumi Oga is such a violent delinquent that the son of Satan himself chooses him to be his guardian. Naturally, the people he associates with are delinquents as well.
** Hell, the school he attends, Ishiyama High, is repeatedly stated to have a delinquency rate of [[UpToEleven 120%]]. Everyone there is a delinquent, it's a [[TwoTeacherSchool No Teacher School]] ruled by the pseudo-AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil known as the Tohoshinki, with Oga himself being the technical StudentCouncilPresident, as he defeated all four of them.
* The student council in ''YankeeKunToMeganeChan'' consists of four legendary badass delinquents and one guy [[FaceOfAThug who'd easily pass as one]].
* England from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' was said to be quite the delinquent as a teen, something which he fervently denies due to his current status as a (self-proclaimed) gentleman. This is also touched in [[HighSchoolAU Gakuen Hetalia]] where in England's official bio it mentions how he had been given such a reputation in the past.
* ''Manga/HarlemBeat'': Kiriko, Kosuke, Sawamura love to smoke, gamble and skip school. And then there's the Kyan team.
* ''Crows'' and it's sequel ''Worst'' center around a gang of delinquents of Suzuran High.
* Airs Blue from ''Anime/InfiniteRyvius'', a gang leader who gets his hands on the only gun on the Ryvius.
* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'': Sailor Jupiter (aka Makoto Kino)]] has this reputation at her school, because she is so tall that she couldn't get a uniform in her size, and because she's the new kid. She's not actually a delinquent, though, just has the reputation. [[spoiler: In actuality, she was not expelled from another school for fighting, but left voluntarily because she couldn't deal with seeing her ex after a bad breakup.]] According to WordOfGod she was ''supposed'' to be an actual delinquent (a leader of a girl-gang, specifically), but the creator changed her mind about that.
* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' has had delinquent protagonists of both the Japanese and Western mold - Joseph, Jotaro (even though he chose to stay there), and Jolyne have even done jail time.
* Fuka Reventon of ''Anime/VividStrike'' is frequently gets into scraps with entire gangs due to her violent temper and subsequently gets into trouble with the police. As a loner orphan, this did not help her living condition as she's been kicked out from various jobs and from her orphanage due to all the trouble she causes.

* The Bloody Fists in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' version two start out this way, but eventually turn into a full fledged criminal gang. Alexander Stevens, leader of the Hellbirds, also qualifies, though he tends to avoid making trouble in the schools themselves.
