* ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' villain Mr. Sinister is known for his unethical genetic practices and his [[StalkerWithATestTube somewhat disturbing obsession with the Summers family]]. However, few people know his original intended origin: he was a young rival of Cyclops who couldn't age. By the time Cyclops was an adult, Kid Sinister was still stuck as an 8-year-old (physically and mentally), and he used his mutant powers to change his appearance into that of a gaudy, over-the-top supervillain: an 8-year-old's vision of a cool supervillain. When considering that origin, Mr. Sinister's corny appearance, unimpressive name, and stereotypical supervillain demeanor actually make sense. But, ThePowersThatBe decided not to go with that origin... It also explains his minions: The Nasty Boys (a name an 8-year-old would be ''far'' more likely to pick than a mad geneticist) earn their name by being filthy ultra-slobs, living in conditions akin to the ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' version of the Brotherhood. In other words, they never take baths or clean their space -- part of an 8-year-old's idea of perfect freedom. In the canon version, one hast to presume that the Nasty Boys named themselves rather than being named by Sinister, and that he just uses them as minions because it would be no great loss if they get killed.

Sometimes subverted by having the one-time bully growing up into a sensible, responsible adult who holds no ill will towards his schoolyard nemeses, something which sometimes [[TruthInTelevision happens in real life.]]

* ''Film/BackToTheFuture'': Biff Tannen in the original timeline. More so in 1985-A. Averted in the understood alternate timeline that Marty returns to at the end of the first movie. Biff, having been humbled by George thanks to Marty's guidance, is no longer George's evil cube farm boss, but an auto detailer who is waxing Acclaimed Sci-Fi Author George's fancy cars.

* A unique version on ''Series/ThirtyRock'' as Liz had spoken of her memories of being a picked-on nerd in high school. However, when she attends her reunion, she discovers that everyone considered her the bully whose put-downs (which Liz remembers as defensive humor) were vicious insults and she's the most loathed person in her class.

* The third vid-comic in ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal'' reveals that Captain Qwark and Dr. Nefarious go way back to Qwark's 9th grade Biology class, in which he used to pick on Nefarious for his headgear, among other things. A wedgie for old times' sake sends Nefarious careening into a pit, temporarily ending Dr. Nefarious' reign of terror but turning him into a robot. However, Qwark happened to be [[HeldBackInSchool26 years old and three times Nefarious' size at the time]].

* Teepo in ''BreathOfFireIII''. His role as a bully is arguable, though; he considers [[TheHero Ryu]] and [[{{Lancer}} Rei]] as family, and only acts as a bully to anyone outside of their family. His big mouth more than often gets them into trouble, though...
