* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Jimmy gets the affection of every girl in school over the course of the game, despite not being what you'd call a looker. Most of the girls also think Johnny Vincent is hot.

** Jimmy Hopkins 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.

* [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield Where the Hell Is Bullworth]]: It's never explicitly stated in the original game, but it's widely believed that Bullworth was in New England. The back of the ''Scholarship Edition'' packaging confirms that it's indeed in New England.

* BarbaricBully: Subverted. As the title of the game would suggest, a big portion of the named characters could be considered "bullies" in some way or another, but the only clique in the game that's explicitly called "the Bullies" is composed exclusively of dimwitted thugs who'll fight anyone they run across for the hell of it. Then again, the leader of the Bullies (Russell Northrop, a hulking giant who's barely capable of forming a coherent sentence) is a textbook example of the trope.

** Pete is, in his own words, "too cool to be a dork and too dorky to be anything else." Gary picks on him endlessly and even his only friend Jimmy doesn't treat him with much respect. Even the Nerds won't accept him into their fold [[EvenNerdsHaveStandards because they feel he is too dorky for comfort]].

* CastOfSnowflakes: Every character in the game is unique. One of the mini-games revolves around finding all 60 students and taking photos of them. Add the various school staff and townsfolk to that 60, and the game has over 100 characters.

* ChristmasEpisode: Not really an "episode", per se, but the first half of Chapter 3 could definitely qualify. At this point, the entire town will be blanketed with snow, and a number of locations will be festively decorated for the holidays. Then, of course, there are the Christmas-themed missions, which must be completed in order to move onto the Greaser missions.

* CulturalTranslation: In the French translation, "Blousons noirs" ("Black Jackets") may look like a weird way to translate the name of the Greasers' clique. It's actually the French equivalent of the Greaser subculture.



** Spoofed regarding the Nerds. Jimmy wants their help to take on the Jocks, but they want nothing to do with him. He's forced to beat them up and invade their observatory, and when their leader Ernest finds his offer of friendship questionable (since he just beat him up) Jimmy snaps "We're buddies!"

** In the penultimate mission, Russell bashs an iron gate with a motorbike (ending up bruised, with dirty and torn clothes), they flees because the police is pursuing him. In the beginning of the last mission, Russell is hiding inside a warehouse, looking as messy as when he fled the police. If you go roaming between finishing the former mission and starting the latter, you may encounter Russell, standing in the open at his usual place, dressed with his standard clean clothes.

* [[AllThereInTheManual All There in the Data Files]]: There's almost no way to match the various adults in town with their names. The data files for the characters included the names, though, and some hex editors over on the Bully Wiki exhaustively worked out who was who.

** 100% completion requires to do plenty of things. Some of them are obvious (doing all the missions and completing the storyline, passing all the classes, finding all the collectible items, winning all races, completing all the clique challenges, take all yearbook's photographs, etc.), some of them aren't (pulling the fire alarm 20 times, giving 50 wedgies, going on all the carnival rides, picking 50 flowers, use a ranged weapon 1000 times, buying each available piece of clothing, etc.). [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/942199-bully-scholarship-edition/41889893 Here's an exhaustive list of what counts in the completion meter]].

** Every adult you meet during in free roam mode is a jerkass to Jimmy. Including the teachers who seem decent during their own classes or the missions involving them.
** When Jimmy is sent to Crabblesnitch's office after being busted, Jimmy's rule violations mentioned by Crabblesnitch are actually sentences randomly selectioned, which are picked without checking whether the player character actually did those specific offences or not.
** Once the storyline is finished, the game is locked into an eternal spring[=/=]summer in which the same cycle of classes from the same schoolyear plays forever, even if you play with the sandbox for the ingame equivalent of several years.
