* Being the KoreanDrama version of the aforementioned HanaYoriDango, ''Series/BoysBeforeFlowers'' also features lots of school bullying. So much that, in this particular continuity, Jan Di (Tsukushi) gets the chance to enroll in the Shinhwa school after she stopped a student who was a target from this ''[[InterruptedSuicide from killing himself]]''. And of course, she's at the receiving end as well.

* Once in ''Manga/SuperGals'' a minor character found herself at the receiving end of being ignored and yelled at, being her homeroom teacher's ScapeGoat for their defeat in a sporting event against Ran's class. Thankfully, this ends once the teacher's true colours are exposed and he's fired.

* Being the DeconstructionGenre of the FightingSeries PlayedForLaughs, MutekiKanbanMusume could be classified as shonen. This trope is exaggerated by Megumi, who was TheBully at her childhood and now is a SchoolyardBullyAllGrownUp: Instead of hiding TheRival Mikiís shoes, she blows up her bicycle tires, instead of posting embarrassing photos, she publishes the true facts about Miki (that she is TheSlacker, TheBully and spreads MaliciousSlander) in public places, [[UpToEleven and she sends menacing letters to Miki and leaves Mikiís card at the scene of a crime. Oh, and she leaves hot dog skewers instead of taks in Mikiís shoes]].

* This is just one of the many weapons in Yandere-chan's arsenal in ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator''. By spreading rumors about a rival, Yandere-chan can lower her reputation and subject her to some nasty bullying. [=YandereDev=] mentions the practice of leaving a vase with a flower on someone's desk, something that is usually reserved for students who pass on, being used as a way of sending the message "I wish you were dead." There's also the practice of vandalizing a student's desk with horrible messages, which happens when a student's reputation has gotten low enough that the entire school not only hates her, but ''wants her to die''.

** Not only that, but the F4 group holds so much power that they can singlehandedly drive the whole school to pull this against one or more students [[DisproportionateRetribution for things as small as just spilling water on them]]. Tsukushi is actually the first student in the whole Eitoku Gakuen [[WillNotBeAVictim who refuses to take this shit]]: she first stood up for her then OnlyFriend Makiko, and then kicked Tsukasa to the face.

** The very first episode involves school council member Mayumi Hashimoto being tormented by [[AlphaBitch Aya Kuroda]], who not only steals the 100,000 yen in donation money that was entrusted to her, but frames her for the theft, forces her into CompensatedDating to get the money back, and then blackmails her with photos of her in the grip of an older man, which she threatens to release to the school if she doesn't continue to pay her and her GirlPosse ó and then Aya decides to release the photos anyway ForTheEvulz, getting poor Mayumi in trouble with the administration and driving her to pull the red string.
** The first episode of Futakomori features another bullied schoolgirl by the name of Maki Onda, who has to deal with an unknown party vandalizing her books and even her shoes with "Die", "Kill yourself", "Stinker", and other mean-spirited things; sewing the sleeves of her jacket together, and even putting caterpillars into her pencil box without her knowledge. [[spoiler: She soon finds out that her teacher, Ms. Kamishiro, is the one doing this to her when her classmate Nakase shows her the caterpillars and the mannequin used in one of her worse pranks involving locking Maki in a running shower room with her clothes on. Kamishiro's worst comes when she burns Maki with hydrochloric acid and tries to coerce her into doing "experiments" with her in some kind of perverted science club that she's been running on her own for a while, which drives Maki to pull the red string and send her to Hell.]]

** Candy is bullied not just by AlphaBitch Eliza and her GirlPosse, but by Neil and his buddies, and occasionally others take part of it. I.e., when Candy arrives at Saint Paul Academy she doesn't know about the dress code rules (wearing a black uniform in Sundays instead of the standard white one) and is cruelly mocked by everyone and SPECIALLY the aforementioned group when she shows up in the normal white uniform. (Not helped by the vey strict nuns refusing to let her change clothes). Not to mention, Eliza spreads MaliciousSlander about Candy among the students (which causes some friction with her roommate Patricia at first), and later Neil and his friends trick her into going to the woods and then corner her, verbally harrassing her until [[BullyHunter Terry]] [[BigDamnHeroes shows up to set things straight.]]

** Ichigo was both shunned ''and'' cornered/beaten up in the past, because of his uncommon reddish hair [[FaceOfAThug made him look like a delinquent]] and either scared his school peers or "drove" bullies and delinquents to fight him.
** Chad went through exactly the same deals due to [[TheBigGuy his size]], his own FaceofAThug matters ''and'' [[MixedAncestry being half-Mexican]]. In fact, he met Ichigo when [[BullyHunter he stepped in Chad's defense.]]
** A junior high-aged Orihime once was cornered by a group of girls who hated her uncommon hair color (light brown in the manga, red in the anime), then was given a TraumaticHaircut. She seems to have been physically abused too, as the flashbacks also include Orihime coming home while wearing bandages. This lasted until Tatsuki Arisawa [[BullyHunter decided it was enough and ran the bullies off]].

This is specially seen in "Lisa's Rival" when the super smart girl Alison joined the class and she went almost mad with jealousy, so she decided to sabotage Alison's diorama for class to make her look bad.
