** During the development of the game, Rockstar had considered Jimmy being ''killed'' in case the player failed to defeat Edgar at the showdown in the chemical plant, where Jimmy would fall into an acid pool, burning alive with Edgar ''mocked him''. There is a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wm1knLsPP4I recreation]] of this cutscene, using Edgar's lines where he mocks Jimmy as he dies. The fact that Rockstar considered having a 15 year old die burning in acid while a much older kid mocked him is horrifying to say the least.
** Jimmy cannot stay up late in the game, as he'll feel sleepy and eventually pass out. While he's sleepy, the screen becomes to get blurry, Jimmy lower his head tired and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6RCs1Y1gKI this]] begins to slowly creep its the way into the soundtrack. Not to mention that by that time, the whole academy and the town become pretty much almost deserted. It's rather creepy to say the least.

* TheScrappy: While not exactly a force of pure evil, Lola is still one of the least likable characters by far. She takes advantage of every guy around her and the only times she's ever nice to anyone, including Jimmy, it's just to gauge how she can exploit them and will immediately turn nasty if she can't. For perspective, even the AlphaBitch cheer captain Mandy and RichBitch preppie girl Pinky are given some humanizing moments, but Lola's characterization pretty much starts and stops at "self-absorbed, manipulative tramp."

* MartyStu: Arguably, Jimmy himself, since he can take down legions of people twice his weight and size, without so much as missing a beat, single-handedly (besides some basic advisory) becoming the king of the school and making everyone submit to him. Furthermore, he aces every class with very little effort.
** Well, that last one qualifies more as pragmatism. The faster you ace the classes, the sooner you don't have to get nailed with truancy everytime you try to do a mission during school hours.

** Derby Harrington is a foppish ponce who can easily be taken out with a right hook by any AuthorAvatar MarySue, and needs Bif to do ''everything'' for him.

* VillainSue: Everything goes perfect for Gary Smith right up til his downfall, regardless of how many IQ points the supporting cast has to drop to make it go perfectly for him.

* PortingDisaster: In the 360 version, the music minigame becomes a LuckBasedMission because of a bug in registering both bumpers at the same time. Moreover, the release version of the game suffered some pretty nasty glitches and performance problems, which weren't fixed for some time afterwards. Most noticeably there is one errand (find Algie's jacket) which will NEVER appear no matter what you do.
*** The music minigame isn't perfect in the PC version either. Music class REQUIRES you to use left alt and right alt, sometimes at the same time, inability of some (most?) keyboards to register that input be damned.
** A Christmas mission, exclusive to ''Scholarship Edition'' is a nightmare on the PC. The idea is to have Jimmy snipe a few people in order to complete the mission. However, the game has an odd tendency to simply not spawn the very last target at all.

However, the game has an odd tendency to simply not spawn the very last target at all. Also, the mouse has a weirdly heay inertia when aiming in first person view, which makes sniping sequences harder and more tedious than they should be.



* {{Squick}}: ''Everything'' involving Edna the cafeteria lady. If she's not trying to date rape old men, she's intentionally hacking phlegm into the food.

* BreatherLevel: The two wrestling lessons during the gym class. They ''can't'' be failed: no timer, no health bar, no series of [[PressXToNotDie Quik Time Events]] that prematurely ends the lesson after three failures. You just have to follow the instructions, until you master the combat moves you're being taught.

* GameBreaker:
** The unlockable go-kart is ''too awesome for the game world''. It is faster than all the cars and will comfortably leave any police or prefects in their dust.
** You can use mopeds for the bike races. Jimmy on a moped + everyone else on mountain bikes = [[{{Nerf}} nerfed races.]]

* AwesomeMusic: Almost the entire score is an {{Earworm}} and everything is beautifully composed, taking in a wide variety of styles which fit moods and places very well.
