School Bully Turned Minion

Regular school bullies will gladly join the forces of evil if asked.

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
When Kid Heroes are not battling villains they have to put up with regular bullies.

Sometimes a villain will find out about the hero's bully and decide to recruit them.

They will usually be made The Dragon if the villain doesn't already have one.


Examples:

Literature
  • In Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy is recruited by Voldemort to kill Dumbledore.
    • Inverted with former bully James Potter, who gave his life fighting Voldemort. His former victim, Snape, joined Voldemort's forces for a while before doing a Heel–Face Turn after Voldemort broke his promise to spare Lily Potter.

    Do non-school bullies count (as in, small-time jerks who join up with actual evil)? There's this one guy in the Lord Of The Rings who's rude to the hobbits at the very beginning of the book, when they return he's the head of Sharkey's enforcers.
