* Yukino from the orginal ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' is a reformed one. Still wears the long skirt though.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'':
** Kanji Tatsumi. Bleached hair? Check. Piercings? Check. Scar on the forehead? Check. Wears uniform inappropriately? Check. Foul-mouthed? Check. [[RealMenWearPink Likes to knit]] and could possibly be [[AmbiguouslyGay ga...]] [[BerserkButton What the hell?!]]
*** In the epilogue for ''Golden'', [[spoiler:he's taken out his piercings, styled his now-black hair in a corporate haircut, and wears a plain white button-down though]].
** Izanagi was intentionally designed to look like one, in keeping with the Protagonist's role in the party.
** In the fighting game ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'', the [[LargeHam announcer]] explicitly refer to the protagonist as a delinquent (as well as a [[BigBrotherInstinct Siscon]]).
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': Your high school's local "problem kid", Ryuji Sakamoto, has brightly-dyed hair, punkish attire, rough speech patterns, and preference for blunt weapons. As the quotation marks may imply, he's just seen as a problem kid because of adults painting him as one for having a violent argument against Kamoshida when he treated him like trash for the track team. However, Ryuji happily enjoys being seen as such once he becomes part of the Phantom Thieves, though he wishes to fix everything that went wrong in his life.

* Most of the ''Franchise/TokimekiMemorial'' games sometimes pit you against delinquents during dates, and you'll have to fight them ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' battles-style. When defeated, their Banchou comes to fight you; if you defeat him, [[WorthyOpponent he'll acknowledge you as the new Banchou]] and will make excuses for his underlings' rudeness. In ''Tokimeki Memorial 2'', the delinquent gang is fleshed out (but still as secondary characters), with their Banchou revealed as [[spoiler: Kaoru Ichimonji aka the KnightTemplarBigBrother of one of the datable girls (Akane), and the Banchou of the first game]], and having under its order a QuirkyMinibossSquad of 4 members known as the ''[[TheFourGods Four Heaven Kings]]'', all having a specific name, face and personnality, and all [[spoiler: having a role in the aforemented datable girl's storyline]].

Added DiffLines:

** Unova's Elemental Monkey trio is an interesting case, as their status as this is meant as double-layered symbolism. Grass-type Simisage has the yankii pompadour and foul temperment. Fire-type Simisear is bosozoku as shown by its fingerless glove markings on its hands, the collar of fur on its neck giving it the appearance of wearing a jacket, and its hands reach out to grab invisible handles bars as if it's on a motorcycle. Water-type Simipour is all dolled up like a kogal would be. It's symbolism because the trio is ''also'' meant to represent the MonkeyMoralityPose--wide mouthed Simisage being "Speak No Evil", big eared Simisear being "Hear No Evil" and blind Simipour being "See No Evil". Their delinquent status is meant to show that they ''failed'' this morality; yankiis are foul-mouthed and rude (hence, Simisage failed to speak no evil), bosozoku produce a lot of noise pollution from their motorcycles (hence, Simisear failed to hear no evil) and kogals are vain and only care about their looks (hence, Simipour failed to see no evil).

* ''Manga/StrawberryMarshmallow'' Nobue is a terrible delinquent and everybody hates her. She smokes constantly, steals from younger girls and does other delinquent things.

* In ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'', delinquents can be found loitering around the school's incinerator. If Yandere-chan approaches them with a weapon or a corpse, they will attack her and [[GameOver beat her into a coma]]. The Head Delinquent is also one of the planned romantic rivals.

* Eri Kasamoto, debuted in ''VideoGame/MetalSlug 2'', is one. Her background as a street kid and her tough personality, as well as being from Japan, justifies this trope.

* Great Baggi in ''Monster Hunter Tri'' and onward is essentially a ''bancho'' in raptor form. The crest on its forehead is a clear nod towards the characteristic pompadour, is a dick to others by putting them to sleep with his saliva and commands a group of smaller versions of itself.
