A subtrope of EvilRedhead. While the JerkJock or the AlphaBitch will usually [[BlondesAreEvil be a]] [[BlondGuysAreEvil blond]], it's very common, especially in American media, to give the school [[TheBully bully]] [[EvilRedhead red hair]].

[[FieryRedhead Red hair stereotypically indicates a fiery temper]], which most bullies often have in order to be abusive. Redheads also tend to have freckles, which makes them look more childish, mischievous, and conniving.

Averted for the most part in real life, as in real life, [[RedHeadedStepchild somebody with red hair is more likely get bullied himself]].
