* CompleteMonster (from the 1992 [[TheFilmOfTheBook film adaptation]]): [[TheSociopath Jaapie Botha]], otherwise known as The Judge, was an [[AmoralAfrikaner Afrikaner]] [[TheBully bully]] who took an immediate disliking to [[TheHero PK]] because of his English heritage. Jaapie later tried to sacrifice him and his pet chicken, Mother Courage, to UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler; he kills Courage, and he tries to do the same thing to PK [[DisproportionateRetribution after he had humiliated him in front of the other children]]. [[SchoolyardBullyAllGrownUp Years later]], Botha became the sergeant for Colonel Breyton, and he was given the task of investigating PK's multiracial gym. Once there, he severely beats Gideon with a [[WhipItGood whip]], causing him to [[EyeScream lose his eye]], and he attacks the other boxers. Jaapie later aided Breyton in several attacks, one of which would end up killing PK's LoveInterest; they then started a massacre in Alexandra, all in their pursuit of PK and Gideon. Jaapie was found in the middle of savagely beating a boxing promoter, and he still expressed a desire to kill him, even when PK willingly gave himself up.
* MoralEventHorizon: Jaapie crosses it as a teenager when he kills Peekay's chicken, and tries to do the same to Peekay, [[spoiler:foreshadowing what kind of [[SchoolyardBullyAllGrownUp person he will grow up to be]]]].
* TheWoobie: Peekay.
** IronWoobie: Peekay takes massive amounts of abuse at the hands of Jaapie and his crew, but refuses to cry, infuriating them further.
