** Played with in terms of the other clique leaders. Derby starts off as a JerkAss and a SmugSnake, but reluctantly accepts Jimmy as his leader until Chapter 6, where he starts to lighten up to him. Earnest gets some help from Jimmy during "The Candidate", but suddenly becomes hostile in Chapter 5, only to resort back to forming an alliance with Jimmy after his defeat. This also occurs with Johnny Vincent, who gets Jimmy to help him take down Gord, but their alliance is cut short halfway through the chapter (resulting in another boss fight), but after his defeat, he starts to lighten up as well. Finally, Ted went from JerkJock to Jimmy's friend after the boss fight on the football field. All four leaders, however, once again turn hostile during "Complete Mayhem", leading to Jimmy take all them down one by one in a MarathonLevel. By the end of the game, all four of them can seen cheering Jimmy on, signifying that they've all made amends for good this time.

* IFoughtTheLawAndTheLawWon: You ''can'' defeat some authority figures (notably prefects), but attacking them maxes out your trouble meter, meaning that if they touch you, you're busted then and there. Many will even state the trope by name.

* ParentalAbandonment / ParentalNeglect: Jimmy's mother and stepfather are guilty of this. They fit the negative stereotype of parents with kids in boarding schools, since they dump him at Bullworth, so they can go off on a year-long honeymoon.

* PetTheDog: Several minor characters have these moments. Parker Ogilvie seems to have a genuinely good nature beneath his preppy upbringing. Bo Jackson and Luis Luna, both jocks, do relatively well in classes. Norton Williams the Greaser has a pronounced sensitive side. And the entire Townie clique during the final mission.

** Hattrick Manor's indoors. Apparently early on in the game's development, Jimmy was going to have to break into the house. That idea was scrapped, but they left what little of the inside of the house that had been finished, in the game. It can be accessed by jumping with a bike and falling through the roof.

* [[DrillSergeantNasty Coach Nasty]]: Mr. Burton.


Added DiffLines:

** Normally, if Jimmy wears the Mascot outfit, the girls in the game will point and laugh instead of kiss him. However, in the mission "Discretion Assured," he gets a kiss from Mandy - and it's also likely that he'll be wearing the Mascot outfit, since he had to for the previous mission. So the game coded a cutscene where, if he's wearing the Mascot outfit on completing the mission, Mandy kisses it on the nose.


Added DiffLines:

* DrillSergeantNasty: Mr. Burton acts this way during gym class.

* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: Jimmy kisses [[spoiler: Zoe]] at the end of the main storyline's final cutscene. When you regain control on the game, Jimmy benefits from the health bonus granted by kisses when you pass the art classes.

** Mr. Hattrick and Mr. Burton are both fired during the course of the story (after completing a series of sidequests, and at the end of the main storyline, respectively), but, after that, they are still teaching their classes. This is probably to ensure that their classes and the related rewards aren't LostForever if you complete the quest before passing all the classes.
** Prefects yell at you if you aren't wearing the school's uniform. [[spoiler: They still do it at the end of the storyline, when Jimmy have been expelled and Crabblesnitch forbade him to wear the uniform.]]

* LostForever: In the original version of the game, this would happen to any mission you failed to complete before moving on to the next chapter, preventing you from getting OneHundredPercentCompletion. This was corrected in the ''Scholarship Edition'' which allowed you to do any mission you missed after completing the main game.



** SidetrackedByTheGoldSaucer: While the amusement park is the game's Gold Saucer, there's also a ton of races, collecting, and other side stuff to keep you away from the main story for a while.

* AnachronismStew: The Bullworth region appears to be caught in a time warp. The game is ostensibly set in the present (there is reference to the school banning MP3 players, Mr. Galloway mentions internet during his questline, Jimmy receives a digital camera during the Photography class, and the map of Europe in Geography class added in ''Scholarship Edition'' features modern-day political layout, as opposed to, say, featuring the USSR), but the cars, computers,[[note]]The Nerds keep a modern PC with a flat-panel monitor in their hideout, just to further confuse the issue.[[/note]] and the Preppies look like they came out of TheEighties, while the Greasers are a throwback to TheFifties. WordOfGod has it that Rockstar wanted both adult and teenage gamers to be able to enjoy it, and thus, they threw in elements from multiple time periods rather than grounding it in one.
