* DisappearedDad: We never see Jimmy's father, only his mother and fourth stepfather.

** 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.



* 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.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassNormal:
** Jimmy may only be fifteen ([[PintSizedPowerhouse and quite a bit short for a kid of his age]]), but any teenager who can whoop that much ass singlehandedly is definitely a kid to stay away from. Entire ''cliques'' are frequently beaten into submission by his fists alone. Sheer numbers and even being bigger than him doesn't seem to help.
** Russell Northrop is the single toughest random fight in the game, and is capable of beating up a pro boxer like Bif Taylor. He's also your first boss fight. Post-HeelFaceTurn, we see him doing such things as holding a shopkeeper in Old Bullworth Vale off the ground by the neck with one arm, chasing off two prefects, and ''stealing a police motorcycle'', something not even Jimmy can do. [[spoiler:His simple-mindedness also makes him [[TooDumbToFool the only person largely immune to Gary's manipulations]].]]

* Leitmotif: Each clique has their own theme that plays when they fight or chase Jimmy. The Bullies have a breakbeat techno theme, Preps have a jazz-organ New Wave theme, the Greasers naturally have a 50's rock n roll rumble theme, Nerds have an 8-bit techno theme, Jock's have an almost jock jam techno theme similar to the Bullies, and Townies have a hard edged surfer rock theme. Even Non-Clique kids get a variant on the standard theme when in fights.
