Because AdultsAreUseless, frequently students have to take matters into their own hands to deal with these characters, leading to a BullyHunter. Alternatively, the bully may not get his comeuppance from his victims or their protectors, instead falling foul to a bigger {{Villain}} and having to be [[SaveTheVillain rescued by the very people he used to torment.]] Can lead to [[ReformedBully a reformed bully]], [[EmbarrassingRescue if the bully is willing to admit to it.]] Otherwise the [[StatusQuoIsGod status quo returns to normal]] despite [[UngratefulBastard past events.]]

* Ishida Shouya, protagonist of ''Manga/KoeNoKatachi'', bullied a young deaf girl in his class constantly, usually alongside his fellow classmates. When they are finally forced to deal with it, the whole class, including the ''teacher'' use him as a scapegoat and shift all blame onto him, from then on tormenting and ostracizing him. After five years, the situation and the extremely guilty conscience he still holds for his actions have left him near suicidal.

** In "Butterballs" Butters is secretly bullied and beat up by his own grandma. She even follows him to school and bullies him in the bathroom. It's a running gag in the episode where people go to the bathroom to find a bully there waiting there for them.
*** Even more so when Butters attempts to find inner strength by donning the costume of Professor Chaos, only to have Grandma show up in a costume of her own, complete with black cape.

* Buford of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''. However, he's actually a PunchClockVillain who spends far more time hanging out with the main characters than bullying them, falling somewhere between a JerkWithAHeartOfGold and a low-grade TokenEvilTeammate.
** In some ways he could be considered a major subversion of the trope. His first appearance plays out much like a traditional "bully episode" ending with them coming to an understanding. Unlike most examples, where said bully is never mentioned again, he immediately became part of the core cast.
* Roger of ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'', though he's is a very mild example. Sure, he isn't the most pleasant person, but he's more like the neighborhood jerk than an actual bully. He holds no ill feelings toward Doug, and is even commonly included in group activities as a friend.

* Multiple examples from ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill''. Bobby has dealt with three in the form of Dooley, Clark Peters, and Chane Wassanasong. Dooley is able to make everything he says an insult with his monotone voice and emphasis on the last word, and at one point harassed substitute teacher Peggy so badly (to the point of pantsing her in class) she actually spanked him. Dooley's parents had no ill will towards Peggy and a good idea that Dooley probably did something to deserve it. After that Dooley and Clark are similar to Roger Klotz in that they're just a couple of local jerks. Chane, on the other hand, is an egotistical jock and honors student who refers to himself as "The Chane Train" and is something of an AbhorrentAdmirer to Connie, much to her revulsion and her parents' delight. At first quite willing to inflict physical abuse on Bobby, Chane has stuck to verbal abuse ever since Bobby kicked him in the groin.

* Superestrella Ash took to beating on Pablito after The World Wrestling League's 2016 return, jumping him in the street and pouring milk on his head in the locker room. The size difference between the two was so great not even a highway bat was enough of an equalizer, but Phenomeno BJ ended up beating up Ash for him.

* Bullying was a central theme in ''{{Series/Glee}}''. Most of the football players and cheerleaders bullied the original Glee Club kids (especially Kurt and Rachel), even those who later became part of the Glee Club. David Karofsky is somewhat of a leader of the jock posse, and in season 2 he's the [[Big Bad]] who bullies Kurt to the point of sexual harassment and death threats.
