->''"Every skool hav a resident buly who is fat and roll about the place clouting everybode."''
-->-- '''Nigel Literature/{{Molesworth}}'''

The SuperTrope of JerkJock, AlphaBitch, and other bully characters. This is the SchoolyardBullyAllGrownUp in his heyday. The guy who gave you wedgies and tied you to a flag-pole. The girl who humiliated you in front of the entire school and broke your self-confidence on your first day in. In WesternAnimation, it is required by law for the bully to refer to his victims by [[LastNameBasis last name only]], because, well... you're not exactly their friend.

A bully is simply defined on [[http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/bully wiktionary]] as "A person who is cruel to others, especially those who are weaker or have less power." This sums this character up in a nutshell. They will target anyone who is less popular than they are, those who are unable to fight back, or [[ActualPacifist anyone who won't fight back]]. Comes in different flavours as listed below.

Because AdultsAreUseless, frequently students have to take matters into their own hands to deal with these characters, leading to a BullyHunter. Alternatively, the bully may not get his comeuppance from his victims or their protectors, instead falling foul to a bigger {{Villain}} and having to be [[SaveTheVillain rescued by the very people he used to torment.]] Can lead to [[HeelFaceTurn a reformed bully]], [[EmbarrassingRescue if the bully is willing to admit to it.]] Otherwise the [[StatusQuoIsGod status quo returns to normal]] despite [[UngratefulBastard past events.]]

[[TooDumbToLive Particularly thick]] bullies [[YouthIsWastedOnTheDumb will often try picking on]] the (currently) [[ActualPacifist pacifist]] superpowered or extremely strong kid [[IWorkAlone who simply isn't very sociable]]. This is called BullyingADragon, and it ''always'' ends badly, unless the dragon ends up [[SaveTheVillain saving the bullies]] and thus shutting the bully right up. [[WhosLaughingNow This doesn't always happen]].

It should be noted that a lot of social stereotypes that are not necessarily true in RealLife are commonly associated with fictional bullies: the bully, as a stock evildoer, is typically a DirtyCoward in the face of real danger, always dumb, and comes from an [[FreudianExcuse unhappy and problem ridden family background]]. (Real life will tell you that often the opposite of these is true.) Also, in real life, [[SchoolBullyingIsHarmless school bullying is not a]] RiteOfPassage. Lastly, while many movies and television shows portray bullies [[BarbaricBully as being enormous in size and physical strength]] (probably so that we feel more sympathy for their victims), bullies in real life come in all shapes and sizes. So the giant football player who sits to your left in homeroom probably isn't much more likely to be a bully than the scrawny nerd that sits to your right.

[[folder: Anime and Manga]]
* The kids at the orphanage who torment a young Lucy in ''Manga/ElfenLied''. [[BullyingADragon It ends]] [[LudicrousGibs badly]]. '''[[BreakTheCutie Very]]''' [[StartOfDarkness badly]].
* ''Anime/MazingerZ'' has Onimaru, a secondary character who attended Shiro's high school and was a {{Jerkass}} who bullied weak kids who could not defend themselves. He picked on Mitsuo, a nerdy, weak, shy kid and tormented him frequently, insulting him, beating him and making him a fool of himself. It did not end up well for him, though, and he started to reconsider his attitude.
* ''{{Narutaru}}'' has [[AlphaBitch Aki Honda]] and her GirlPosse, who torment the main character's friend in horrifying ways. [[spoiler:When she snaps and releases her BondCreature, they die in even ''more'' horrifying ways.]]
* Doi from ''WanderingSon'', and Oka to a more mild extent.
* Takeshi "Gian" Goda from ''{{Doraemon}}'' is probably the most well-known bully character in Japanese anime society. His victims are every boy in his neighborhood, though he picks on Nobita the most.
* In ''Manga/DailyLivesOfHighSchoolBoys'', [[spoiler:Habara,]] known as the [[RedBaron Archdemon]], was the menace of all boys eight years before the current events. She needed [[OneManArmy ten]] {{Bully Hunter}}s to barely make a draw with her, which forced her into [[RetiredOutlaw retirement]].
* In ''SaintBeast'', Kira acts as one to Rey, possibly because he always gets a reaction.
* Being a deconstruction of the FightingSeries, MutekiKanbanMusume offers a deconstruction of TheBully by Miki and Megumi’s relationship:
** Miki, despite being a beautiful young adult who uses WaifFu, not enormous in size, and not a DirtyCoward, fits the traditional depiction of a bully (dumb and enormous physical strength, caused Kankuro's HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood and [[ButForMeItWasTuesday she doesn't remember any of that]]).
** Megumi, Miki’s lifetime TheRival, fits the RealLife description of a bully: A {{Hypocrite}} who is a BitchInSheepsClothing, [[VandalismBackfire destroys Miki’s work]], uses MaliciousSlander, {{Wounded Gazelle Gambit}}s, is adept to BreakThemByTalking against Miki, and whose only motivation to make friends is force a LetsYouAndHimFight with Miki. Oh, and [[LastNameBasis always refers to Miki as Onimaru]].
** Kankuro shows the deconstruction of the ''[[BrokenAesop You have to stand for yourself]]'' attitude in dealing with TheBully Miki. After four years of college, he comes back to his old town to fight the SchoolyardBullyAllGrownUp and defeat her, deleting all those horrible memories of his HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood. To achieve that, he must do it the honorable way, [[DefeatMeansFriendship to win her respect]]. However, if Miki would be capable of respecting someone weaker than her, she would not have been TheBully in her youth: Miki treats him as the UnknownRival and [[ButForMeItWasTuesday doesn’t even remember his name]]. Kankuro is trapped in a CycleOfRevenge, incapable of leaving his old town and starting his own life because he simply CantCatchUp to Miki.
* Ishida Shouya, protagonist of ''Manga/KoeNoKatachi'', bullied a young deaf girl in his class constantly, usually alongside his fellow classmates. When they are finally forced to deal with it, the whole class, including the ''teacher'' use him as a scapegoat and shift all blame onto him, from then on tormenting and ostracizing him. After five years, the situation and the extremely guilty conscience he still holds for his actions have left him near suicidal.
* ''Manga/YuGiOh''
** In the original both Honda and Jonouchi acted this way towards Yugi. What finally made them stop is when ''they'' were antagonized by Ushio, a ''worse'' bully, and Yugi tried - very ineffectively - to defend them. (Not coincidentally, this altercation happened right before Yugi completed the Millennium Puzzle, and Yami emerged for the first time, Ushio being the first target of his vindictive Shadow Duels.)
** And there were ''lots'' more jerks like this in the early manga, such as the upper classman Goro Inogashira from the infamous "Griddle Ice Hockey" story and the HollywoodToneDeaf singer Sozoji. There were plenty of {{Evil Teacher}}s too. (Yeah, Domino High seems like a pretty terrible place to go to school back then when the stories are all grouped together...)

[[folder: ComicBooks]]
* Flash Thompson of ''SpiderMan''. (He mellowed later.)
** The Ultimate version of Flash is even worse. He has none of the depth as his mainstream counterpart. And takes far more pleasure in seeing Peter humiliated and picks on him for no reason.
* Another example from ''SpiderMan'' was [[EvilAlbino Tombstone]]. He was one as a teenager, and only got worse as an adult, becoming a hitman by trade, where his tendency to bully people weaker than himself was still obvious.
* Quasim of ''Minimonsters''.
* Cruncher Kerr, a character in Roger the Dodger, a strip in the Britsh AnthologyComic ''TheBeano''.
* The RedSkull. Worse, he thinks that ''everyone'' is a target.
* Sabretooth loves making life miserable for {{Wolverine}}. Killing Logan's loved ones, eating food he just ordered, stalking him on his birthday and beating the crap out of him, manipulating Logan into killing his own son...it's all fun and games to Victor Creed.
* Another X-Men example with Hellion, though he mellowed out considerably in the wake of Stryker's attacks on the school following M Day, after many of his friends were killed.
* A short comic book released by ''Magazine/NintendoPower'' shows that Wario's grudge against [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]] is because Mario acted like this towards him when they were kids, although [[MultipleChoicePast that's not how Mario remembers it.]]

[[folder: FanWorks]]
* In ''Fanfic/TheLionKingAdventures'', Anti-Haiba serves as this to Simba in ''The Love Triangle''. [[spoiler: He even beats him up.]]
* In the LuckyStar fanfic ''Fanfic/TheDayEverythingChanged'', the main antagonist of the story, [[BigBad Sakura]] [[JerkAss Takahashi]], is a particularly nasty and surprisingly realistic example of this, [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown particularly]] [[DisproportionateRetribution towards]] [[TheWoobie Kagami]].
* In ''FanFic/MegaManDefenderOfTheHumanRace'', Punk is this; he even bullies [=ProtoMan=].
* In ''FanFic/KitsuneNoKenFistOfTheFox'', Rokusho Aoi (a filler villain from the ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' anime) uses his position as the chief hall monitor of Konoha High School to bully weaker students as he pleases.
* In ''FanFic/MyLittleUnicorn'', Sombra was first seen as a bully named [[spoiler: Dusk Shine]].

[[folder: {{Film}}]]
* The unseen antagonists discussed in ''Bully'', the critically acclaimed 2012 documentary film that became a rare box office hit of the genre. The five subjects of the film – including those who had revealed themselves as homosexuals, or had Asperger's – were all severely tormented by bullies. (The alleged bullies were not interviewed for this film.)
* Biff Tannen of ''Film/BackToTheFuture''. Also a JerkJock.
* Conny of ''LetTheRightOneIn''.
* Bullies fight Goku in the movie version of ''[[Film/DragonballEvolution Dragon Ball]]''. Also BullyingADragon.
* Scut Farkus in ''AChristmasStory'' - with yellow eyes, so help me God!
* Butch, in the ''TheLittleRascals'' shorts.
* In ''KeyLargo'', there is a grown-up example. Rocco is this way to everyone, even to his own {{mook}}s and alcoholic girlfriend Gaye.
* Buddy Revell from ''ThreeOClockHigh''.
* Vanessa of ''Film/TheGrudge'', who doubles as the AlphaBitch.
* ''Film/NapoleonDynamite'' features a somewhat-odd bully who always starts out by offering to trade something to other kids in exchange for letting him have or use something of theirs that he wants. Whenever they refuse, he switches into full-on bully mode and ''makes'' them comply.
* All of the gang members in ''Film/DeadMansShoes'', but especially Sonny.
* Joe and Jake from ''Film/SongOfTheSouth'' are {{Big Brother Bull|y}}ies to little sister Ginny, but they also antagonize Johnny. Notably, Joe and Jake's personalities are analogous to Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear, the antagonists of Uncle Remus's Br'er Rabbit stories.
* Shane Hawkins from ''Film/TheWorldsEnd'', in the group's schooldays, with consequences that echo through to the present-day plot.
* In ''Film/X2XMenUnited'', Mitchell Laurio uses what little authority he has to screw with his prisoner(s).

[[folder: Jokes]]
* This one captures the essence of bullying, so to speak.
--> [[CunningLikeAFox Fox]]: "Bear, I'm bored."
--> {{Bear|sAreBadNews}}: "Yeah, me too."
--> Fox: "I've got an idea! We beat up the hare!"
--> [[{{Mook}} Bear]]: "Yeah, great idea!"
--> Fox: "But we can't beat him up for nothing, we need a reason... I've got it: If he wears a cap, we tell him 'You have a stupid cap', and if he has no cap, we tell him 'Why don't you wear a cap, you want to get a cold?'"

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'':
** Harry's cousin Dudley, [[spoiler: at least until his HeelFaceTurn]].
** Draco Malfoy
** Harry's father James was one when he was in school, as was his best friend Sirius Black.
** Snape as a teacher definitely qualifies.
** Tom Riddle when he was young. Though he was mainly seen as a good student by most of his teachers.
* [[AntiHero Edmund Pevensie]], in the first book of ''ChroniclesOfNarnia'', liked to bully and torment his younger sister, Lucy.
* Bugs Meany of ''Literature/EncyclopediaBrown''.
* The cyberpunk novel ''Literature/{{Otherland}}'' could be interpreted as something of a FantasticAesop about bullying. The antagonists are all bullies of one sort or another; the most developed of whom, CorruptCorporateExecutive Felix Jongleur, describes a upbringing in a BoardingSchoolOfHorrors where he was the victim of the resident GangOfBullies. In revenge, he became a bully himself, meting out vicious summary punishment to anyone who dares offend him. His use of pain to control his subordinates comes full circle when PsychoForHire Dread pulls an EvilerThanThou on him and the Other, his [[AIIsACrapshoot quasi-AI]] computer system, finally snaps under the constant torture and tries to kill him.
* ''Literature/TortallUniverse''
** Ralon in ''Literature/SongOfTheLioness'' enjoyed picking on and beating up Alanna and other smaller boys in his classes, even breaking Alanna's arm at one point while getting away with it. Alanna put up a good fight and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome eventually beat him at his own game.]]
** Joren and his crew in the first two ''Literature/ProtectorOfTheSmall'' books, using the excuse of routine hazing to pick on first-years relentlessly. Keladry and her friends eventually get them to stop entirely through force of numbers.
* Sonny Singer and Heck Bast in ''TheTalisman.''
* Henry Bowers of ''Literature/{{It}}''. Later becomes a SchoolyardBullyAllGrownUp.
* Officer Felix of ''Literature/{{Outsourced}}'' is very much bullying Isaac Fisher. His introduction to the reader is him absently aiming his gun at Isaac, before asking him some questions.
* As seen in the page quote, Nigel Literature/{{Molesworth}} is more than happy to share his "grate thorts" on the subject with his readers. He goes on to explain that bullies come in two varieties: fat bullies who can run, who are trouble, and fat bullies who "can't run for tofee", who may safely be taunted from a distance. Sadly [[JerkJock Grabber]] of [[BoardingSchoolOfHorrors st. custards]] is of the former type.
* In Creator/RobertWestall's ''Literature/TheMachineGunners'' this role is filled by Boddser Brown, the Garmouth Grammar School bully and Chas [=McGill=]'s most avid rival in the great game of collecting war souvenirs.
* There are a fair few bullies in ''Literature/ToughMagic'', with the three that stand out the most being Nist, Brath and Rungar.
* Many, many knights in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' are basically thugs with a sword and a massive sense of entitlement. One of the major examples is Ser Meryn Trant, who is perfectly happy to beat the crap out of a helpless teenage girl and laughs in Barristan Selmy's face when Joffrey kicks him out of the Kingsguard.
** Joffrey himself, and Ramsay Snow are basically what would happen if you took a viscous teenage bully and gave them command of a group of soldiers and total protection from consequences.
* {{Flashman}}, was originally the school bully from Literature/TomBrownsSchooldays, until he was given his own series by Creator/GeorgeMacDonaldFraser. Arguably he's a case of {{SchoolyardBullyAllGrownUp}} then.

* Four of them feature in the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "The Pack".
* The brother on ''Series/StrangersWithCandy''. To be fair, he bullies his sister, who at times can be something of a bully herself.
* Harley Keiner of ''BoyMeetsWorld''.
* Whitney Fordman in the first season of ''Series/{{Smallville}}''. Slowly gained some CharacterDevelopment over the season, and when he left to join the army, he and [[Comicbook/{{Superman}} Clark]] had a grudging respect for each other, and he even asks Clark to keep Lana safe for him. [[spoiler: Then he is pretty quickly revealed to have been [[BusCrash KIA]].]]
* [[Series/OneHundredDeedsForEddieMcdowd Eddie [=McDowd=]]]
* Sam on ''Series/{{iCarly}}''. Also Jocelyn from "iMake Sam Girlier".
* Reese from ''MalcolmInTheMiddle''.
* Bulk and Skull from the early seasons of ''PowerRangers'' are particularly mild examples of this trope, though as [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] points out, they "weren't particularly good bullies since it was obvious any ONE of the rangers was capable of [[BullyingADragon kicking their asses."]] However, they acted more like [[ClassClown comic relief by cracking jokes than anything]]. They were more or less on friendly terms with the Rangers (in their own way) and Skull even had an obvious crush on Kimberly. And when real bullies showed up they fled in terror. However, by season three they'd grown out of the bully/class clown persona and became junior police officers and would hold down various jobs in later seasons. Each had major PetTheDog moments beginning in season two.
* Hutch was this to Kip in the original season of ''Series/TheJoeSchmoShow'', messing up his photo album, teasing him about not wanting to go in the pool and threatening to shove him in the pool and such. Part of the appeal of Matt was him standing up for Kip and saying that he understands about phobias and such.
* Tony and Gibbs can be considered this toward [[ButtMunkey McGee]], regularly insulting him, forcing him to do demeaning things, and otherwise doing things that are considered 'bullying'.
* Greg from ''KidNation''.
* Played straight, then Inverted in an episode of ''{{Series/Supernatural}}''. One episode had Dean and Sam return to one of several High Schools they'd attended while travelling cross-country with their father. Sam has {{Flashback}}s to a boy who had bullied him for being small, until Sam turned the tables by [[CurbStompBattle beating the tar out of him]]. They moved again shortly afterwards, and in the present, Sam discovers that after the beating, the rest of the school started to bully the bully, to the point that [[spoiler: his ghost became a vengeful spirit that [[BullyHunter killed other bullies]]]].
* Grayson the School Bully from the Series/RippingYarns instalment ''"Tompkinson's Schooldays"'' is another parody of the Flashman character from the Literature/{{TomBrownsSchooldays}} - [[UpToEleven turned up to eleven]].

[[folder: Music]]
* Fans who [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotDidactic have tried to analyze]] "Particle Man" by Music/TheyMightBeGiants have interpreted Triangle Man this way, noting that he ''hates'' Particle Man and Person Man, and fights them because he wins, but ''never'' messes with Universe Man.

[[folder: NewspaperComics]]
* Moe of ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes''. Calvin sometimes takes advantage of his lack of intelligence, though, with mixed results.
-->"Many years from now, when I am successful and he is in prison, I hope I'm not too mature to gloat."
* ''FunkyWinkerbean'': During the pre-first time jump era, "Bull" Bushka, who mercilessly tormented Les Moore. Bull softened by the end of the pre-first time jump, becoming friends with Les (after he stood up to Bull), and although he still has his feisty personality he -- as a teacher at Westview High -- has absolutely no tolerance for bullying.

* The Big Shot on ''Pinball/DrDude'', who constantly taunts the player. Naturally, hitting him yields big points.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Nick Busick (a state law enforcement officer from Georgia) used a "bully" [[TheGimmick gimmick]] as a heel in both Georgia Championship Wrestling and later, the Wrestling/{{W|orldWrestlingFederation}}WF. His 1991 WWF run was his best known, where he was known as simply "The Bully." To sell the gimmick, he'd commit various acts such as hassling ring announcer Mike [=McGuirk=] when she got his name wrong, or popping a child's balloon with a pin. After bullying several jobbers, he moved to the mid-card and had moderate success against wrestlers like "Superfly" Wrestling/JimmySnuka and "The Texas Tornado" Kerry Wrestling/{{Von Erich|Family}}, but never got higher as – after a well-publicized match where he was completely squashed by Sid Justice – the "bully" gimmick was effectively destroyed and Busick left shortly after that match.
* The relationship between The Buddy System and "Better Than You" in SHINE. The latter spoiled the former's chances of becoming {{tag team}} champions, broke Heidi Lovelace's leg which left Solo Darling on her own, showed up with their Valifornia [[PowerStable stablemates]] in tow to stop Solo's return to solo matches and set the group's new brute on her.

[[folder: {{Theater}}]]
* ''CyranoDeBergerac'': This play is not placed in High School, but uses - and deconstructs this trope:
** Played straight with De Guiche, who is a JerkJock using his power to bully Roxane into being TheMistress and makes a DareToBeBadass to De Valvert to punish Cyrano.
** Deconstructed with Cyrano: He is very cruel to others, (Montfleury, The Bore, De Guiche and everyone who Cyrano doesn’t like) subverted because De Guiche has a lot more power than Cyrano. Given his enormous nose and living in a shallow society that firmly believes BeautyEqualsGoodness, he obviously has being bullied all his life… and now Cyrano is the most BadAss swashbuckler, a real OneManArmy… [[WhosLaughingNow who can bully everyone because]] [[HeWhoFightsMonsters he is the most powerful warrior there is]]. Lampshaded by Roxane at Act V scene II, after Le Bret comments Cyrano still is making new enemies:
--> '''Roxane:''' Ah! but his sword still holds them all in check;
--> [[TemptingFate None get the better of him]].
** Invoked by De Valvert and Christian, but they are merely victims of PeerPressureMakesYouEvil.
* In ''Street Scene'', Vincent Jones harasses Rose on the street. When Sam tries to intervene, Vincent calls him a "little kike bastard" and hits him, then protests that he has a weak heart. Rose tries to tell Sam that "he's nothing but a loafer... ten years from now, he'll still be driving a taxi," but Sam is in his usual despair.

[[folder: VideoGames]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Bully}}'', as you might have guessed, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin centers around these]]. In fact, the first clique that the main character has to fight and take over is made up entirely of bullies, ironically making them pushovers for most of the game and allowing the player to [[CatharsisFactor have a blast putting them through the same torment they've been unleashing on the weaker students at Bullworth Academy]].
* Butch at the beginning of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}''.
* You meet bullies in ''VideoGame/{{Fable}}'' 1 and 2 [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing and beat the crap out of them for the greater good.]]
* Bobby Zilch of ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}.'' Not a very effective one though.
* Spider from ''TheAdventuresOfWillyBeamish''. Want to make it past him unscathed? [[GiveMeYourInventoryItem Give Him Your Inventory Item]].
* Mido from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' and Groose from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword''.
* Bisco from ''VideoGame/{{Robopon}}'', who even holds sway over teachers.

[[folder: WebAnimation]]
* The "Buli" from the first episode of ''WebAnimation/DaAmazinOTAdvenchr''. [[spoiler:He dies two episodes later.]]

[[folder: WebComics]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Annyseed}}'': Charlotte Peechi decided from the moment she first met Anny that she would forever be her inconvenience.
* ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge'': True, it is a necessary tactic to save their lives, but how does he phrase it? [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/040923c We're killing Ran and stealing his blasters!!]]
* ''Webcomics/{{Memoria}}'' [[http://memoria.valice.net/?p=81 The exortor of Matty's money]]
* Rahan in ''Webcomic/TalesOfTheQuestor''. Also, the Redcaps and other gangs in the Tumbledowns of Sanctuary City.
* Skeeter in ''Webcomic/MinionComics'' forces new minions to play one of two games: Stab-Twist-Gurgle or Mama Bird.
* Jeremy from ''Webcomic/OzyAndMillie''.
* Vriska and Cronus from ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'' could be seen as this in different ways. Vriska is basically a 13 year old {{Serial Killer}} with a bad case of {{Chronic Backstabbing Disorder}} who paralyzes Tavros and later on puts him in a house full of stairs while making him try to ''apologize for being a cripple''. Cronus on the other hand, hits on Mituna, takes advantage of him and openly insults him. Did I mention that Mituna is brain damaged and {{Hates Being Touched}}?
* Gavin Gothicus in ''Webcomic/WizardSchool'' mocks Graham's magical tattoo and [[http://www.meetmyminion.com/?p=1405 brags about all his father's numerous possessions.]] Too bad he's up against a bigger {{Jerkass}}...
* In ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'', [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=4247 bullies come to harrass Crimney]]
* In ''Webcomic/RedsPlanet'', [[http://www.redsplanet.com/comic/rp/ch03/chapter-three-34/ two aliens bully Red and another alien while stealing things.]]
* ''Webcomic/TheBullysBully'' is all about the heroine dealing with bullies although in a variation, she's usually helping others and not merely defending herself from bullies. Textless webcomic (and therefore language-independent).
* ''Webcomic/DistortionNuzlocke'' has Johnny's nameless bully, who he imagines as Blue Oak.
* ''Webcomic/{{Selkie}}'' has Jeremy Trunchbull who relentlessly bullies the eponymous heroine. His father [[http://www.selkiecomic.com/comic/selkie486/ refuses to see his son as a bully]] and has successfully strong-armed several schools in the past to drop all punishments.

[[folder: WesternAnimation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** Although all children in are, to some extent, bullies, later this trait is accentuated on Craig and Cartman.
** Lessened for other kids however, as the show aimed for more sympathetic CharacterDevelopment and restructured [[AdultsAreUseless most of the kids]] into [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Men]]. Most of the bullying traits have been placed and exaggerated onto Cartman ([[ComedicSociopath to monsterous levels]]), with even Craig acting as little more than a DeadpanSnarker in later seasons.
** In "Butterballs" Butters is secretly bullied and beat up by his own grandma. She even follows him to school and bullies him in the bathroom. It's a running gag in the episode where people go to the bathroom to find a bully there waiting there for them.
*** Even more so when Butters attempts to find inner strength by donning the costume of Professor Chaos, only to have Grandma show up in a costume of her own, complete with black cape.
* Nelson, Jimbo, Kearny and Dolph of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
** There's also Francine Rhenquist in "Bye Bye Nerdie"
* Buford of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''. However, he's actually a PunchClockVillain who spends far more time hanging out with the main characters than bullying them, falling somewhere between a JerkWithAHeartOfGold and a low-grade TokenEvilTeammate.
** In some ways he could be considered a major subversion of the trope. His first appearance plays out much like a traditional "bully episode" ending with them coming to an understanding. Unlike most examples, where said bully is never mentioned again, he immediately became part of the core cast.
* Roger of ''{{Doug}}''. To be fair, Roger is a very mild example. Sure, he isn't the most pleasant person, but he's more like the neighborhood jerk than an actual bully. He holds no ill feelings toward Doug, and is even commonly included in group activities as a friend.
** Mr Bone's nephew Percy on the other hand was definitely a bully, and tormented both Doug and Roger as often as he could a day. He physically threatened them both.
* [[CaptainObvious Bully Koopa]] in ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3'' and ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld''.
** Hip and Hop play this role straight when they attend school in an episode of ''Super Mario World.''
* Beef Bonk, the resident JerkJock from ''WesternAnimation/GalaxyHigh''.
* JerkJock Dash and The Alpha Bitch Paulina from ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''.
* Gelman from ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''. Also a {{Jerkass}}.
** Lawson tends to alternate between this and being TheRival.
* Bonnie Rockwaller from ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''. Also an AlphaBitch.
* Brit and Tiff from ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot''. Also {{Alpha Bitch}}es.
* Portia (and her sidekick) from ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyB''. Also an AlphaBitch.
* Francis / F-Stop / Hotstreak from ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock''.
* Foxy Loxy from ''Disney/ChickenLittle''
* Wolfgang from ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold!''.
** Harold starts off this way, but as the show develops he becomes too ineffectual and soft hearted to really pull it off anymore. Helga similarly keeps up this role with great enthusiasm, [[JerkassFacade but only to hide her real personality]].
* Brent from ''CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs''.
* Francis on ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents''
* Boog from ''WesternAnimation/FanboyAndChumChum''. Also a {{Jerkass}}.
* Binky Barnes on ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' was originally conceived as one, but his RealMenWearPink tendencies have been played up so greatly that nobody takes him seriously as a bully anymore, when he even still tries.
* {{Pete}} from ''MickeyMouse'' and other Disney cartoons. The extent of his bullying tendencies varies.
* Sperg from ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy''... to an extent, Mindy.
* Hilda the cat and her two unnamed friends provide a very rare all-female bully clique in ''WesternAnimation/LennyAndSid'''s debut video "Love Thy Neighbor".
* Another all-female example are the Gross Sisters from ''WesternAnimation/TheProudFamily''.
* Kevin and the Kanker Sisters from ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''.
** And [[spoiler: Eddy's brother.]]
* Multiple examples from ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill''. Bobby has dealt with three in the form of Dooley, Clark Peters, and Chane Wassanasong. Dooley is able to make everything he says an insult with his monotone voice and emphasis on the last word, and at one point harassed substitute teacher Peggy so badly (to the point of her pantsing her in class) she actually spanked him. Dooley's parents had no ill will towards Peggy and a good idea that Dooley probably did something to deserve it. After that Dooley and Clark are similar to Roger Klotz in that they're just a couple of local jerks. Chane, on the other hand, is an egotistical jock and honors student who refers to himself as "The Chane Train" and is something of an AbhorrentAdmirer to Connie, much to her revulsion and her parents' delight. At first quite willing to inflict physical abuse on Bobby, Chane has stuck to verbal abuse ever since Bobby kicked him in the groin.
** Hank Hill once had to deal with a bully of his own, who was in fact a young child named Caleb. Said child was a totally spoiled brat whose parents wrote off everything he did as being "precocious and high-spirited" while he went about harassing Hank and calling him weird names like "White Shirt" and "Dusty Old Bones". All the while, there was little Hank could actually do since Caleb wasn't his child and Hank was a much bigger adult. When Hank had taken Caleb's bike after he tried to wreck his lawn, Caleb's parents called the police and Hank was depicted as the bully. Hank finally managed to get Caleb's parents to punish him by asking Bobby to act towards them the same way Caleb acted towards him.
* Both ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and it's sister show ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' have episodes where the main character (a BumblingDad no less) turns into a bully ''to their own kids'' ([[ManChild cliche childish mannerisms and attire included]]).
** From ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' there's also Connie, the AlphaBitch at Meg's school.
* Butch Magnus on TheBoondocks isn't just a bully to little kids. He's a bully to adults as well. He was actually expelled from a catholic school for assaulting a nun while getting punished, and he managed to beat up a Drill Sergeant Nasty on the Maury show. Any attempts by adults to controlling him always results in failure.
* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode, "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E4OneBadApple One Bad Apple]]." The Cutie Mark Crusaders meet Applebloom's visiting cousin from Manehattan, Babs Seed, who quickly turns on them when Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon start taunting them. After weeks of endless torment by Babs, the CMC plan their retaliation only to learn during its execution from Applejack that Babs is visiting to get a respite from terrible harassment she herself is suffering at home. Realizing that Babs was acting as she is to prevent being a target again, they save Babs. Afterward, the CMC make it clear that they understand Babs' situation and she is so moved at their generosity of spirit that they reconcile and even gives Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon what for when they keep harassing the CMC.
* Joe on ''MoralOrel''. He's a brat and a jerk to Orel, often taking advantage of him, as well as teaching him to beat up two kissing boys.
* ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'' had "Bully for You," in which Spike is a bully because he's scared and doesn't have any friends. Cassie befriends him by fixing his broken yo-yo. There's another about a dragon-basketball team that bullies Emmy.
* Red Herring from ''APupNamedScoobyDoo''. He doesn't do much apart from confront the gang (mostly to Freddy) while they're on a case, only he's brushed aside as no more than a nuisance.
* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' takes the Trope to the extreme in "Operation Z.O.O." with a school bully that is supposedly a [[ImAHumanitarian cannibal]]. (Oddly enough, the same character appears later in "Operation: P.O.P., as the bouncer in Lime Ricky's, a GoodGuyBar, and seems harmless.)
** In a much later episode, "Operation: M.A.T.A.D.O.R.", more dangerous bullies appear, running a BloodSport called the Bully Fights where they trap adults and drive them into a rage with coffee, and then fight them bullfight style. This cruel sport sickens even most of the Kids Next Door (who are usually no fans of adults).
** The episode "Operation: B.U.L.L.I.E.S.'' depicts bullies as [[UpToEleven dinosaur-like creatures]].
* Heavyweight wrestler Potato-Patato Jr from ''WesternAnimation/MuchaLucha''. (He had a sister who appeared in one episode named Tomato-Tamato; she was just as bad.)
* Gary from ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' was a ''very'' nasty one. He wanted to beat up Dexter and two of his friends because, well... He [[DisproportionateRetribution hated "kids with funny accents",]] as he claimed.
* Eva and Duncan on ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland''. Heather is also the AlphaBitch.
* ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012'' has had at least two: Wiggles [=McSunbask=], a more stereotypical type who aggressively asserts himself upon everyone he knows [[spoiler: and does so because he thinks this is how he should behave]]; and Tangier, a more realistic type who puts on a nice-guy act but psychologically disrupts Russell in secret. Russell and Zoe don't even attempt to get through to Tangier because they know it's impossible; [[spoiler: they humiliate him instead.]] Both of them, however, do try to make themselves appear harmless and friendly when in the presence of authority figures so they don't suspect a thing, Tangier even going out of his way to show he's helpful so they side with him instead of Russell.
* Reggie Bullnerd on ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone''
* Mooch on ''[[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians 101 Dalmatians: The Series]]''. Less so with his [[GangOfBullies gang]]- while Whizzer, Dipstick, and Two-Tone (until she left the gang in "Love 'Em and Flea 'Em") are very loyal to Mooch, they're on good terms with the other puppies when he's not with them.
