* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', there's a group of three or four bullies in Springfield Elementary who often pick on Bart. They're composed of Dolph (the hunched-over redhead with the PeekABangs and the green T-shirt), Jimbo (the dim-witted one with the purple knit cap and the black skull T-shirt who kinda sounds like Milhouse [Milhouse and Jimbo share Pamela Hayden as their voice actor]), and Kearney (the bald, fat one who wears a punk version of Homer Simpson's white T-shirt and blue pants, and, in later episodes [[OlderThanTheyLook is heavily implied not to be a teenager, despite looking like one]]). Nelson ("haw! haw!"), the most recognizable bully of the series, also hangs out with them from time to time. He's more sympathetic than the others, having been granted many PetTheDog moments over the years.\\

It's not clear which of them is the alpha bully, though. Jimbo was the leader at first (according to the season one episode, "The Telltale Head" when Bart first met them outside the Aztec Theater), but over time their chain of command has shifted between Jimbo (because he was introduced first) and Kearney (because he's older than Dolph and Jimbo) before the chain of command became more or less egalitarian. Unless Nelson's being depicted as part of the gang (rather than just co-operation through respect between bullies), in which case he is almost always depicted as the leader. Albeit one with only a tenuous hold on power, as demonstrated in "Lisa's Date with Density". Nelson himself was introduced in the first season with a pair of color-swapped but otherwise identical lackeys.

* Since [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the WhateleyUniverse is a high school, there are bullies. While some are solitary, Gold Stallion and his gang fit this trope precisely, as do the three {{jerkass}} bullies who call themselves [=TNT=].
