     Major Characters 

Jimmy Hopkins
  • Action Genre Hero Guy: Jimmy hits almost every beat.
  • Anti-Hero: Jimmy is not very nice, thanks to a bad upbringing, but he's a lesser evil: standing up for weaker kids, aligning with outcasts, and generally coming across as less hostile and cruel than the proper antagonists.
  • Bi the Way: Has the option of romancing male students and well as female in gameplay.
  • Big Man on Campus: Officially elevated to this in the last act: schmoozing with the ladies, surrounded by an entourage, and letting loose a few Tom Cruise gestures because he's just that awesome.
  • Bully Hunter: He's particularly disgusted with how lower caste students prey on each other, rather than face the might of the preps, jocks and others. As he said to Russell, "There are bunch of idiots in this school who need a good beating and you're picking on the few who don't."
  • The Casanova: Given that he's able to get the attention of 8 girls by the end of the game, and six guys too. (His mojo fails on the art professor, however.)
  • Clint Squint: It's a wonder he can even see though those slits.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Jimmy can explore many ways to take down an opponent, ranging from a simple punch in the face, to using a freaking bottle rocket launcher to paste someone from a distance.
  • Covered in Scars: Jimmy's dome is marred by a few scars, which disappear if you grow his hair out..
  • Cultured Badass: Art classes show that Jimmy has a surprising gift for oil painting.
  • Custom Uniform: For some reason, he and Petey are the only students who wear bright blue uniform vests. The Nerds and the Non-Clique Students respectively wear kelly green and dark teal sweater vests, and Gary has a unique teal vest. The other cliques don't wear school sweater-vests.
    • In beta screenshots, the Non-Clique Students wore blue vests the same color as Jimmy's. It's probable that they were switched to dark teal to make Jimmy stand out more.
  • Cutscene Incompetence: Whenever Gary's around, Jimmy seems to lose the ability to do anything besides clench his fists, scuff his feet, and huff. This could be justified by Jimmy's slight twinge of pity and remorse for losing Gary as a pal.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Hopkins' brand of humor, which is helped enormously by him being the Great Stone Face of Bullworth Academy. He especially enjoys running fast ones past the Headmaster (criticizing his dress sense among other things), even during his expulsion proceeding.
    Crabblesnitch: Very droll! A comedian to the end. Well, you are going to have to take your comedic talents elsewhere.
  • Disappeared Dad: No mention is made of his birth/biological father, only that he has had many stepfathers.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: By becoming the school's most powerful leader, he unwittingly becomes a whipping boy for everything that goes wrong. Jimmy tries his best to maintain order, but he's rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic by that point.
  • Eagleland: Probably sums it up best when he's giving a Rousing Speech to the Townies, convincing them to help him stop the all-out brawl at Bullworth Academy in "Complete Mayhem".
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: He tackles Gary to kick-off the final boss fight, all because of what Gary said.
    Jimmy: "YOU'RE DEAD!!!" (Tackles Gary right off the roof)
  • Fiery Redhead: A short, pug-faced ginger kid with strawberry blond hair.
  • Former Teen Rebel: According to Dan Houser, if Jimmy were to be portrayed as an adult in the future, he's unlikely to be a criminal and will probably grow up to be a well-adjusted (or at least harmless) individual.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: By the end of chapter three and start of chapter four.
  • Genius Bruiser: Can prove to be a straight-A student, although he still leaves most of his tactical decisions up to Pete.
  • Genre Blind: Mostly when Gary's around.
  • Good Is Not Nice: He's stingy with kind words and not particularly philanthropic; he'll protect you from bullies in exchange for cash on the nail. Very rarely does he act out of the goodness of his heart.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Principal Crabblesnitch notes that at the end of the game, he is a good person at heart though admittedly he is a bully, and decides not to send a letter to his mother regarding his expulsion.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: Jimmy originally set out to quash the bullying. However, the popularity goes to his head and he becomes a pale copy of Gary, even inheriting the latter's punching bag Pete .
  • High School Hustler: A hard-assed incarnation, though you'd need to be to survive in a place like Bullworth. He's also less adept at it than Gary, resorting to fisticuffs rather than flattery and lies.
  • It Runs in the Family: Jim scores with an absurd number of girls throughout the game. It must be in the genes, seeing as how his mother is a serial divorcée.
  • Kavorka Man: He's not considered good looking - Zoe even makes fun of him for being short and having no fashion sense. But he gets with every hot girl at the school.
  • Knight in Sour Armor: He shows utter disrespect to pretty well everybody, but he ultimately does lay everything on the line to safeguard Bullworth. He also shows a softer side to the ladies: When Mandy breaks down at seeing voyeuristic posters of her that the Nerds wallpapered all over the town (with Jimmy's help), Jim tries to console her; then, seeing it did no good, he leaves to deface the posters before the school board sees them.
  • Knight Templar: Arguably, he must become the school's biggest bully in order to stop the bullying.
  • Married to the Job: Not moments after professing love for Zoe, he turns on his heels and races back to Bullworth upon hearing it's in trouble. "Duty calls!"
  • Lightning Bruiser: He's probably the second or third fastest kid in Bullworth.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Despite not appearing very muscular, Jimmy can hold his own in a fight against opponents bigger than he is...including Russell.
  • The Napoleon: He's short for his age, which is one of the very many things responsible for his general belligerence.
  • Odd Friendship: Despite Pete typically being the type of boy that the students at Bullsworth Academy would target, he is friends with him regardless. At the end of the game he decides that he would be an excellent choice for the head boy.
  • Only Sane Man: Well, he, Pete, and Zoey share this. Still, Jimmy deserves special mention, as his scathing sarcasm at everybody else's insanity/ stupidity flies completely over their heads.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: His height is of no disadvantage to him in a fight. Jimmy can take on an entire clique in a fist fight single handed and walk away a winner.
  • Pride Before a Fall: It's even part of the last story-based chapter: "The Fall and Rise of Jimmy Hopkins, Aged 15"
    • Which is also a reference to the 1970s book, "The Fall and Rise of Jimmy Hoffa," by Walter Sheridan.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to Dr. Crabblesnitch before he gets expelled.
    Jimmy: I'm not the one who's funny. You know what's funny? You! You're a joke, you old creep! You and your stuck-up, lame-ass school, with its bullies and sex-pest teachers. This place is a dump and you're a big-nosed freak! This school rewards losers and bullies, I just stand up to them!
  • The Stoic: Hopkins rarely smiles, and even at his angriest, his voice is rather muted. Only Gary manages to get a rise out of him.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: Jimmy cobbles together his own little harem as the game progresses. It helps that every teenage girl in school is a Statuesque Stunner, towering over all the non-Prefects with the exception of Eunice.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Gary builds him up as the school hero, only to muddy his reputation in the final act.

Gary Smith
  • Abusive Parents: You can get an image of Gary's home life by piecing together bits of gossip, and it doesn't sound like he has a good one. Mr. Smith, the super-rich self-made man who can be seen in Bullworth Town, is Gary's grandfather. Gary's father did not turn out well, and ended up in an unhappy marriage with a woman of a seedy background from New Coventry. And poor Gary got dumped at Bullworth as soon as he was old enough.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: A sociopath that has apparently been off of his meds. He mentions that his problem is "ADD, primarily." He fits the criteria for Antisocial Personality Disorder to a T, being callous, manipulative, cruel and using charm to achieve his means with no remorse or empathy whatsoever. He could also have a conduct disorder, which can be a precursor diagnosis to APD and can account for his defiant behavior. ADD is often co-occurring with both disorders.
  • Bad Samaritan: He's the first person at Bullworth to act friendly to Hopkins, so naturally, he's the root of its evil.
  • Barbaric Bully: Averted. In a game about bullying and High School politics, the Big Bad is actually a weaselly loner who tries to use cunning and manipulation to come out on top.
  • Between My Legs: When Jimmy finally confronts him on the roof, the camera switches to this view.
  • Big Bad: The ultimate bully in Jimmy's eyes as Gary manipulates everyone from Jimmy, to the principal, to even all the clique leaders.
  • Blessed with Suck: Gary views his own intelligence as this. Although he's diagnosed with ADD, this is another classic symptom of sociopathy: proneness to boredom and obsessive need for stimulation.
  • Brains and Brawn: Brains to Jimmy's Brawn. He was later replaced by Pete.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Gary's paranoia is so all-encompassing that he can't help but betray people.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Many of his remarks towards different characters and about society as a whole usually condescending and cynical.
  • Deal with the Devil: Gary makes the same sales pitch to everybody when tempting them to the dark sid— er, his clique. First he promises to divide Bullworth between them 50-50, then pretends to assume a strictly advisory role. Earnest is especially susceptible thanks to his own naked lust for power and messiah complex.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: If the comically-large scar over his eye, bouts of psychosis, and thinly-veiled contempt for all around him wasn't enough, he dressed up as an S.S. Officer for Halloween!
  • Diabolical Mastermind: As shadow leader of the various cliques. The Nerds, Jocks, and Greasers are made to wage war on each other, not realizing their orders all came from the same place.
  • Dirty Coward / "Get Back Here!" Boss: In the last confrontation, Gary leads you up the dilapidated bell tower, hoping you'll slip and fall. He fires some taunts and turns over wheelbarrows full of cement blocks from above.
  • Disney Villain Death: Not really, (this is a family game), but Hopkins does shove him off the school roof and into the skylight above Crabblesnitch's office.
  • Engineered Public Confession: Jimmy doesn't even plan it that way; Gary can't stop running his fool mouth off about how he fooled everybody. Crabblesnitch overhears his evil rant and expels him.
  • Exposition Fairy: Gary acts as one in "This is Your School".
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Nope. Averted. There is no line that he seems unwilling to cross. Even in the last fight with him, it's unknown whether he was chucking things at Jimmy to wear him down for a fistfight or send him flying off the roof of the building.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: He clearly can't wrap his mind around the concept of 'friendship,' and the idea of sharing power is equally anathema to him.
  • Evil Is Hammy: "Face it: I'M SMARTER THAN YOU! HYAAAAAHH!!"
  • False Friend: To both Jimmy and Pete, as Jimmy is just another pawn to him and Pete is just his punching bag.
  • Final Boss: He's the last boss fought in the game.
  • For the Evulz: Gary represents abuse of power for its own sake, making him the ultimate bully in Jimmy's eyes.
  • Freudian Excuse:
    Gary: "Well – A.D.D., primarily, but also life, my parents, this school, western civilization, but really, honestly, enough about me…"
  • Heel Realization: Kinda.
    Jimmy: You are sad, man.
    Gary: I may be sad, but I run your world, moron! And don't you forget it!
  • High School Hustler: Deconstruction of the Ferris Bueller archetype, expertly manipulating students and staff for his personal gain. As Bully demonstrates, only a psychopath would be this good at it.
  • Idiot Ball: Gary seems to be immune to the effects of an Idiot Ball but to carry a very powerful one at all times. It's the most reasonable explanation as to why everyone seems to lose half of their IQ whenever Gary talks to them. People who previously talked about how he was an unstable psychopath are always willing to take him at his exact word, and Jimmy never seems to think of just beating him up.
  • Informed Flaw: Gary is supposed to be the most hated student in Bullworth but yet, whenever Gary makes some sort of lies and manipulations, they immediately listens to him over the reliable Jimmy Hopkins with Crabblesnitch even lauding him as one of the ideal student for the head.
  • Insane Troll Logic: He basically drags Jimmy kicking and screaming into his plotting to take over the school, despite the fact Jimmy doesn't care about ruling the school (at first, anyways) and tells him that repeatedly, and he only helps Gary because he's is one of the only students at Bullworth who doesn't treat him like dirt. Later, Gary betrays Jimmy because he's 'competition,' which comes out of nowhere from Jimmy's point of view.
  • It Amused Me: When Jimmy asks, "Why'd you do it?", this is his response. The fact that Gary took the Principal hostage and turned the school into a warzone, yet is still Head Boy makes his victory all the sweeter; in Gary's mind, he's proven his superiority over the "little people."
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Gary comes off like a immature braggart in Chapter 1, forming his own clique with Jim and Pete while simultaneously claiming that friendship is just illusory. It later turns out Gary isn't hypocritical or putting up a tough exterior: he really is that evil.
  • Kick the Dog: Callously tells Jimmy that they were never actually friends and tells him how worthless he thinks he actually is.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After being expelled in place of Jimmy, NPC chatter reports that he's skulking the belltower like the Hunchback of Notre Dame (though this is probably an exaggeration) and - more likely - living in the trailer park with the Townies.
  • Let No Crisis Go to Waste: Once Jimmy becomes Bullworth's King, Gary ratchets up the chaos by letting rats loose in the library, destroying the Preps' antique trophies, getting Johnny sent to the asylum, and setting the gym on fire. This ends up turning all the cliques against Jimmy.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: Gary couldn't conquer the cliques with his fists, and needed a brute like Jimmy to lead them. Once Jimmy becomes the King of School, Gary undoes the efforts he took to improve Bullsworth Academy and arranges for his expulsion, leaving the leaderless and confused gangs in need of a hand: Gary Smith's.
  • Loners Are Freaks: There's a reason we rarely see Gary following the fight in the sewers: He spends nearly all his waking moments in the dormitory, making plans. In doing so, however, he missed out on all the action Jimmy was having around town; adventures that, in theory, Gary could have participated in, instead.
    "While you were off wasting your time with whores like Lola, I was in the dorm, planning. While you were racing bikes, while you were playing at the carnival like a child, my plan was coming together!
  • Mirror Boss: Heavily downplayed all things considered, but his fighting style during your final encounter with him does in fact take noticeable cues from Jimmy's own moveset though with a few tweaks here and there. His front kick and his ducking jab are dead ringers for a couple moves Jimmy learns from the hobo and his combos visually look similar to Jimmy's own wide-swinging jabs, hooks and uppercuts. It also helps that he's about Jimmy's heights and your attacks will be knocking him about about as much as his do, provided you actually let him land attacks on you.
  • Misanthrope Supreme: Among his pet hates are his parents, his school, "small" people, and western civilization.
  • Motive Rant: An extended one in the finale, which proves his undoing.
  • A Nazi by Any Other Name: As his Halloween costume suggests, Gary is a non-too-subtle parody of Adolf Hitler (right down to the haircut). A hysteric xenophobe, possibly suffering from some form of parental neglect or mental illness, who comes to power by way of a series of extralegal maneuverings, sets fire to Bullworth's gym in his very own riff on the Reichstag, and talks constantly of ruling his own evil imperium someday.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: He's a whiz at manipulation and backstabbing, but a in a straight fistfight his bark proves to a lot bigger than his bite.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Somehow, he was apparently able to convince all of the cliques to trust him, although most, if not all of their leaders show open disdain for Gary.
  • Offstage Villainy: Most, if not all of his actions and manipulations are done offscreen although this is justified as the game is mostly done from Jimmy's point of view.
  • Sanity Slippage: Becomes more excitable (and erratic) after going off his meds. "I should've gone off those pills a long time ago!"
  • Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: Jimmy eventually does take over the school before him, just as he suspected — which wouldn't have happened if Gary hadn't accused Jimmy of trying to taking over.
  • Smug Snake: Gary's general tone of voice could best be described as "seething contempt." He's the "would-be Magnificent Bastard but too arrogant to pull it off" version of a Smug Snake - although he does manage to become the Big Bad he's utterly incapable of maintaining it.
  • The Social Darwinist: Frequently proclaims his contempt for "weak people" and the necessity of betraying your friends first. He's also under the delusion that everybody in the world thinks just like him, including Jimmy.
  • The Sociopath: Textbook case. He's also unable to grasp the difference between holding total power over others and real friendship.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: He delivers quite the massive one in the final mission. It's arguably one of the most famous speeches in the game.
    Gary: You're too trusting, Jimmy. From the start you were pathetically naive... Poor little Jimmy, all alone at big scary Bullworth. Under fire from Russell and his goons, desperate for help. So sad, so hopeless, just needing a friend. Any friend. You were so easy to manipulate, Jimmy! And once we were friends, it was all so clear. You had your lust for power, but without the intelligence to back it up. Using you as a pawn was so wonderfully obvious! Let Jimmy have his fun. Let him play his childish little games with Earnest, Ted, Derby, Johnny and Edgar, and just wait for the right moment to swoop in and take it all. It was like lining up dominoes. It all fell together so perfectly. While you were off wasting your time with whores like Lola, I was in the dorm, planning. While you were racing bikes, while you were playing at the carnival like a child, my plan was coming together... Any regrets, Jimmy? Looking forward to the wasteland that your life is about to become? After you're expelled for your antics over the last few weeks you won't have anywhere left to go!
  • Take Over the City: Take Over the School — His goal all along was to become head of the school, with each of the cliques answering to him.
  • They Look Just Like Everyone Else!: His bad temper went mostly unnoticed on the dog-eat-dog campus.
  • Villain Cred: Gary Smith is renowned in the cliques for his sadism, though Jimmy doesn't quite believe it.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Crabblesnitch lauds him as a role model who isn't afraid of being an "unpopular leader." Doubtless this was his interpretation of why the cliques all loathe Smith, yet seemingly follow him without question.
  • Was It Really Worth It?:
    Jimmy: Oh, congratulations. You're "smarter than me"! You hate everyone and everyone hates you! Genius!
  • We Win Because You Did Not: Gary gloats about this in "Complete Mayhem", explaining that if Jimmy loses against him, he's just another bitch — but if the Head Boy is beaten up, Jimmy will be in even worse trouble. This winds up being moot when the Headmaster overhears his entire speech.
  • Your Mom: The last mistake he makes before Jimmy kicks his ass is insulting Jimmy's mother.

Pete Kowalski
  • Almighty Janitor: Pete is considerably smart, possibly even rivaling Gary. His advice to Jimmy proved to be valuable in his campaign against the Preps and the Nerds, and he also zeroed in on Gary being the one plotting behind their backs.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Petey is suggested to be either bisexual or homosexual because of his pink shirt, oft-mentioned virginity, and lack of friends, not to mention an excruciatingly awkward joke he makes suggesting that Jimmy would make a good male stripper. He's also a fan of Bullworth's televised swim practice sessions.
  • Butt-Monkey: Mocked by nerds, stuffed in a garbage can on Halloween night, and receiving no end of torment from his supposed 'friends'. He later admits he put up with Gary and Jimmy's abuse because it was better than the alternative.
  • The Consigliere: Jimmy solves his problems with violence, but he sometimes needs Pete to tell him where to direct that violence. Best demonstrated when Pete advises Jimmy to take on Bif Taylor in a boxing match to subdue the Preppies.
  • Cool Loser: In his own words, he's too cool to be a nerd, but not cool enough to fit in anywhere else. He mainly gets no respect because he never stands up for himself or shows any backbone in a setting where even the nerds will fight back against bullies.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: He really doesn't care for being called Petey, although he's too meek to do anything about it.
  • Extreme Doormat: Don't get us started. Just watch the cutscenes that has him with Jimmy and Gary and you'll see what we mean.
  • Foil: His shy and cautious personality contrasts with both Jimmy and Gary, who are a school bully and a sociopath respectively. As such, he's considered to be a better candidate for head boy.
  • Groin Attack: Falls victim to this in "Slingshot".
    Gary: Don't lie, Petey. Don't you lie. Because you know what happens to liars?
    Petey: No, no. I'm not lying.
    Gary: We kick them in the balls. *kicks Petey in the groin*
  • Loners Are Freaks: Analyzed trope, in contrast to genuinely antisocial Gary Smith. Pete's solitude is taken as proof by the cliques that something's wrong with him.
  • Morality Pet: To Jimmy. Though he treats him like a tag-along kid, he still protects him more than any other character. Might be because, to Jimmy, Pete represents the ultimate "helpless bullying victim".
  • Non-Action Guy: The closest he comes to doing something action-y was during the boss fight against Johnny Vincent, where he operates an electromagnetic crane... after Jimmy knocks out every single Greaser who was in his way.
  • No Respect Guy: Not even Jimmy, who is his only real friend, shows him much respect at all. At the very least, he does get to be the Head Boy at the end of the game.
  • Odd Friendship: Though he's typically the type of boy that a bully would target, he and Jimmy are rather good friends. Gary, in contrast, is a False Friend.
  • Only Sane Man: He continually tries to warn Jimmy about imminent dangers, but Jimmy neglects him more and more as his popularity increases.
  • Pink Means Feminine: He also wears a pink bunny suit in Halloween, but only after being forced into it by Gary. Also, his Bullworth polo appears to have been dyed in the wash.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Not nearly to the extent of Jimmy but during the few times he shows up as an NPC (or when spawning him with PC mods), he can hold his own against bullies like Trent and will regularly beat up nerds in a straight fight despite the height difference.
  • Tiny Schoolboy: The shortest teen character in the game, as he's even shorter than Jimmy and barely taller than the Little Kids! It really doesn't help him in a place like Bullworth. Gary, of course, Lampshades it by mockingly suggesting that he's only just now hitting puberty.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: The Headmaster appointed him Head Boy offscreen.
  • You, Get Me Coffee: Pete almost never accompanies you into a mission, despite repeatedly asking. He does turn up unannounced in a few missions, and proves handy during the Johnny Vincent battle.
  • Nerdy Inhaler: "Oh man, I gotta get checked out for my asthma..."

Russell Northrop
  • Badass Biker: Russell steals a police motorcycle sometime before Jimmy visits his house.
  • Barbaric Bully: The leader of the "Bullies" clique is a brutish giant who's too dumb to form intelligent sentences.
  • Berserk Button: Insulting his mother. "Russell want vengeance!"
  • The Big Guy/The Brute: Russell has various medical issues both stated and or rumored. His size may be the result of gigantism or acromegaly, since he mentions that Nurse McRae told him he has overactive glands. According to Vance, Russell was once in a psycho ward.
  • Born in the Wrong Century: Some of his NPC chatter suggests he is the Marv of Bully's universe. "Russell would be barbarian king thousand years ago!"
  • Bullfight Boss: The first of several.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Russell's hard head comes in handy for breaking down Bullworth's gate in the finale.
  • Custom Uniform: Him and his clique wear the normal Bullworth uniform without a sweater and rolled-up shirts. During the winter, most of them leave the shirts unbuttoned, skullies and hoodies underneath their shirts.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: He's the only clique leader who never turns on Jimmy after being beaten. Like the other bullies, Russell will offers to be your bodyguard in free roam mode. He'll also defend you during "Complete Mayhem", later chasing off a cowardly pair of Prefects.
  • Dumb Is Good: Russell is staggeringly stupid, but nevertheless has a sense of justice, as evidenced when Jimmy makes him realize that his bullying is bad.
    "Inside Russell's thick skin; big heart of warrior poet."
  • Dumb Muscle: He's not smart. He can lift a full grown man with one hand and ram the front gates of Bullworth Academy open with his head.
  • Eagleland: This becomes evident when listening to Jimmy's plans for taking back Bullworth: bribe and threaten everybody to stop fighting, and if that doesn't work, Russell will kick the crap out of everyone. ("Russel likes to hurt people! For peace!") Note also Russell's color scheme: a mop of red hair, white polo shirt, and blue jeans.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Albeit it's not so much Russell having a change of heart as it is Jimmy managing to point his bullying tendencies in a safer direction.
  • Hulk Speak: "RUSSELL SMASH!"
  • Meaningful Name: The name "Russell" means "little red one", and while he's far from little, he is a redhead.
  • Primal Chest-Pound: Likes to do this before attacking someone.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Russell never sets foot in the school building and is a known felon, but he lives in the posh, Preppy-dominated suburb in Bullworth Vale, suggesting that his family is well off.
  • Starter Villain: He is the first character to antagonize Jimmy along with the rest of the bullies. Jimmy eventually has to fight him to complete Chapter 1.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Jimmy after the end of Chapter 1.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Usually fights by just clumsily lashing out with his fists and legs, but this is still enough to knock out a champion boxer like Bif or any one of the Jocks in only a few hits.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Pulls out a powerbomb if he catches you in a grapple. During his boss fight he'll use a double axehandle and even the boston crab on poor Jimmy.

Zoe Taylor
  • Best Served Cold: With Jimmy's help, she vandalizes a portable toilet occupied by Mr. Burton, sending him careering off a cliff in a hail of feces.
  • Birds of a Feather: She shares Jimmy's love of vandalism and giving people what they have coming to them.
  • Custom Uniform: She's the only girl to have a red tartan skirt with her school outfit.
  • Faux Action Girl: According to the dialogue files, she's a very good fighter and quite tough for a girl. In the game itself though, all the girls share the same stats, and are the weakest characters by a large margin. Probably justified though, since Zoe couldn't have been programmed to be tough and aggressive without tinkering with the mechanics a lot.
  • Fiery Redhead: Bright red hair, likes to fight, her idea of a good date is vandalism...
  • Last Girl Wins: She's the last girl that Jimmy meets and dates, and the one he's with at the end of the game.
  • Miscarriage of Justice: When Zoe angrily reported on Burton's wandering hands, the faculty showed her the door. Jimmy arranges for her to be re-enrolled at the Academy.
  • Tomboy: According to the dialogue, she'd rather roughhouse and fight than do girly stuff.

Dr. Crabblesnitch
  • Adults Are Useless: While he means well, he's completely blind to just about everything wrong with the school he runs. Fortunately, Jimmy persuades him to help make Bullsworth a better school, such as firing Mr. Hattrick and Mr. Burton.
  • All Psychology Is Freudian: Downplayed - he seems to think most of Jimmy's problems can be attributed to his mother.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: An ex-Prefect himself, he will not hesitate to bust you on campus. He's also the only NPC who never runs out of stamina. Good thing he only appears once.
  • Big Bad: Subverted. Though he initially appears to be the main antagonist of the game (and was originally intended to be), it ultimately turns out that he's a Reasonable Authority Figure and that Gary Smith is the real Big Bad.
  • Born in the Wrong Century: He seems to believe the 1950s never ended, going by his style of dress and his attitude towards bullying.beatrice
  • Brutal Honesty: He never minces his words, and lets students know if he judges them as unpopular or troublesome. He has no problem revealing his biases towards the jocks and preps and his dislikes towards nerds and greasers.
  • The Chamberlain: Cheekily implied by his outward appearance and unabiding trust in Gary Smith's leadership. Which makes Jimmy a miniature Winston Churchill, if you like.
  • Condescending Compassion: His attitude towards nerds, greasers, Jimmy, townies, and the like whenever they are victimised.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Sometimes. For example, if Jimmy is failing at English when brought into Crabblesnitch's office, he might quip "too stupid to speak your native language properly."
  • Dean Bitterman: Downplayed. He stays on Jimmy's case, but doesn't even consider to expel him until he has no choice due to Jimmy's vandalizing of City Hall in broad daylight.
  • Distressed Dude: In the climax, Gary somehow ties him up and leaves him to rot in his office.
  • Do Wrong, Right: His voice files reveal he is not opposed to beating nerds up or keeping them in their place, but he can criticize Jimmy for going too far or getting caught.
  • Game-Over Man: He'll lecture Jimmy the first couple of times you're "Busted". After that, he sentences Jimmy to menial labor.
  • Get Out: Jimmy gets busted for vandalism in the game's final act, which results in his expulsion. At first, Crabblesnitch tries to dismiss Jimmy civilly, but when the youth presses on with denouncing the school and its faculty, the Head angrily throws him out.
  • Good Is Not Nice: While he can be an asshole, Crabblesnitch by no means a villain; he reveres traditional mores like self-discipline, dedication and the value of hard work, which is why he gives Jimmy and the other delinquent kids every possible chance to stay in school and reform themselves.
  • Kavorka Man: Word of Dante says the reason Burton stays on at Bullworth is because he has dirt on Crabblesnitch; the unmarried Headmaster is, most likely, dating his secretary on the sly.
  • Politically Motivated Teacher: Downplayed - his dialogue occasionally shows a strong dislike of socialism, an adherence to social classes, his longing for the good old days, and reverence of authority can be used to make guesses about his political views. He has no qualms about letting these views out or guiding his actions.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: If you can actually get his attention, he does the right thing. Getting it is the hard part though...
  • Selective Enforcement: If Jimmy does it, it's fighting and violent conduct. If anyone else does it, it's school spirit and hijinks. He makes this distinction clear in your second conversation with him.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: He views townies, nerds, carnival freaks, and greasers as bad sources of influence, among others.


Davis White

  • Brats with Slingshots: Seems to be his Weapon of Choice as he uses a slingshot extensively in missions and free-roam. Jimmy's first slingshot is actually stolen from Davis
  • Fragile Speedster: Tied with Wade for least-tough kid in the Bullies clique. However, there are a couple of missions where Jimmy has to chase him down, and it is quite tricky to keep up with him.
  • Freudian Excuse: His dialogue shows him to be one of the more sadistic bullies in the game but he also claims that his cousin ruined his childhood by bullying him and force-feeding him june bugs.
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: He's one of the most ruthless on campus bullies but he's implied to suffer emotional problems as he admits to others that he sometimes bursts into tears and can't stop crying.
  • Warmup Boss: The first real boss fight, complete with a special titled healthbar. He's mostly there to help you learn how to fight enemies from a distance and defeating him nets you a slingshot.

Ethan Robinson

Tom Gurney

Trent Northwick

  • Bi the Way: You can catch him on a date with Kirby.
  • Handsome Lech: He's a blonde haired pretty boy who constantly brags about his success with girls and dates boys on the side
    "Am I handsome? Beat Yes, yes I am."
  • Misery Builds Character: Apparently he became a bully because as he puts it, "it helps make men out of the new kids."
    "Let a real man show you the ropes!"
  • Closet Geek: He wants to become an actor, is in the Theatre Club and has a line that implies he reads Manga.

Troy Miller

  • Ambiguously Gay: Zig-zagged - He has a few dialogue about girls and claiming he's not sexually confused, but half his dialogue is about how he can't stop thinking about guys or Russell's figure.
  • Closet Key: Has one in Russell.
  • Dumb Muscle: He's not even that strong, but he acts dumber than most of the Jocks and is also one of the most active Bullies providing back-up in several missions and even acting like a henchman to Trent in "Character Sheets".
  • Fiery Redhead: If him being a bully and having bright ginger hair isn't a hint on it's own, then his arrogant attitude is another.
  • No Indoor Voice: Most of his dialogue is him talking extremely loud.

Wade Martin

  • Brats with Slingshots
  • Brother–Sister Incest: Not intended, but he can sometimes be seen making out with his sister Christy. This is because the game designers would have had to write special code to make sure they didn't, and they either didn't bother, or didn't realize - see all the confusion about names.
  • Evil Laugh: He breaks into this a lot, especially when mocking people.
  • Freudian Slip: While fighting:
    "You wanna see me lose it? HUH, DAD?! I mean, you're dead!"
  • Fiery Redhead: Hot tempered dude with red hair.
  • Warmup Boss: The first mandatory fight where you're introduced to the basic melee mechanics of the game.


Derby Harrington

  • Arch-Enemy: To Johnny.
  • Boxing Battler: Also leads an entire clique of practiced boxers. As a result, the Preppies are the only characters in the game who can dodge melee attacks using their boxing footwork to weave in and out of the way of punches and kicks.
  • Counter Attack: Uses 2 different versions depending on when he's fought. In most situations, it's identical to Bif, Tad, and Gord's, but during his boss fight, he uses a different, slower and stronger one.
  • Cowardly Lion: Contrary to what Fanon thinks, he's just about as tough and as competent at boxing as Bif... Then again, he never fights alone.
  • Custom Uniform: Him and the other preppies wear Aquaberry vests over their normal uniforms. During the winter, some of them wear striped scarves and wear sweaters instead of vests.
  • Dirty Coward: Lets his friends soften Jimmy up during his boss fight while he hides behind the counter, only coming out to fight when Jimmy is outnumbered. He also doesn't ever fight Johnny Vincent directly, preferring to let Bif do his dirty work.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Surprisingly, yes. The Preppies in general emphasize using careful footwork to avoid attacks and sneak in fast combos coming across as the Weak, but Skilled Fragile Speedster clique of the game, particularly in comparison to tougher cliques like the Greasers or the Jocks. Derby fights the same way, but he has a far larger healthbar than the other non-Bif Preppies leading to this trope.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Even after Jimmy brings the Preppies in line, Derby quite easily tricks Jimmy into getting in trouble with the Greasers.
  • No-Sell: During his boss fight, he auto-blocks wrestling moves. As the strategy guide explains, "that's not how preppies fight."
  • Out-of-Character Moment: In the ending cutscene, he appears among a crowd of students and teachers applauding Jimmy, which is very uncharacteristic of him, considering how unpleasant he is to Jimmy during the game. This is likely due to the fact that Jimmy saved Bullsworth from Gary.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Only during his chapter boss fight and always followed up with an uppercut. It's not really that fast compared to other characters' attacks, but it's the longest combo in the game and is unique for having a special animation where his opponent visibly gets stunned by each individual blow.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: During his boss fight with Jimmy, he keeps running away from the fight to hide behind the bar while other preppies fight Jimmy for him.
  • Smug Snake: He's exceptionally smug. He believes that breeding, nepotism and snobbery are more important than actually being able to fight.
  • Trying to Catch Me Fighting Dirty: His unique fighting style during his boss fight mixes in illegal boxing moves.
  • Unblockable Attack: Only used during his chapter boss fight: A slow, overhand right cross identical to the ones used by Bryce, Chad, Justin and Parker.

Bif Taylor

  • Bodyguarding a Badass: "Badass" is a strong word, but he's still acting as the big, intimidating bodyguard of a guy who's just as strong as he is at least in terms of gameplay.
  • Boss in Mook Clothing: He's got a bigger healthbar than some of the bosses and an effective fighting style too, but he can still be found wandering around Bullworth like the other students in contrast to Russell who only hangs out around the school parking lot or the front of the school.
  • The Brute: One of the strongest students in the game - only Russell is stronger than him in free roam.
  • Counter Attack: Frequently.
  • The Dragon: To Derby Harrington.
  • Jerk Jock: Most of his dialogue is either about beating people up or about how great a boxer he is.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He's a got a huge healthbar equal to that of Chapter 2's boss and is an accomplished boxer who hits fast, dodges frequently and is one of the few students with a Counter Attack.

Pinky Gauthier

  • Alpha Bitch: Not as much as Mandy, but still...
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Her frequent mood swings, conflicting opinions, a few mentions of being in therapy, and hysterics show hijts of Bipolar II.
  • Hidden Depths: Implied to suffer from some sort of disorder and is going through therapy over it. She also believes in charity and donating to the poor, despite her Rich Bitch moments.
  • Kissing Cousins: Admits she's dating Derby out of an Arranged Marriage plan the Preppie's ancestors used to breed "purity" (and they would've pushed for full Brother–Sister Incest if it wasn't against the law). Thankfully, she dumps him for Jimmy after he was five minutes late to his date with her!
  • Mood-Swinger: Very noticeable in her two cutscene appearances - She changes from being rather kind to lashing out and demanding all in the span of a few seconds. It's not as noticeable in her freeroam dialogue, though.
  • Rich Bitch: She has Pet the Dog moments, like that she donates to charities or she likes Jimmy for being an honest, stand-up guy after Derby only... well, stood her up on their date. However, it doesn't take very much at all for the "bitch" side to come out.
  • The Rival: To Lola, for unexplained reasons (possibly due to the Greaser-Preppy feud). She sometimes talks about her as a cheap tramp. On rare occasions, you may see the two engage in a cat-fight outside the Girls' Dorm after school hours. There's also some unused dialogue of the two having an argument about Johnny during Complete Mayhem.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: for all her faults, she seems legitimately fond of Jimmy for his good qualities.

Bryce Montrose

  • Guide Dang It!: Is listed in the strategy guide as a non-clique student, confusing many that use that resource to try and complete the yearbook photos. Of course, with his family's finances how they are, that might soon be a reality.
  • Impoverished Patrician: His dad lost nearly everything on the stock exchange, and is lying to his prep friends about his continued wealth.
  • Non-Idle Rich: Not through choice - he has to work at the yacht club to pay his tuition. He presents it as how they begged him to "provide his services" and plays up the importance of his role.
  • Power Creep, Power Seep: If your respect from the Preps is low enough, provoke him while he's practicing in the boxing club with his boxing uniform on and you'll notice that he has the same exact stats and moveset as Bif. Technically, other Preps in their boxing uniform get a similar stat boost, but he's the only one that's not fighting inside the inaccessible boxing ring.
  • Sheltered Aristocrat: Outright admits his parents have sheltered him from so much in life.
  • Unblockable Attack: Two of them! One's a slow, overhand right cross and the other's a running kick.
  • Wealthy Yacht Owner: Subverted - despite being a member of the club and making contacts there, his family is the only family at Golf and Yacht Club without a boat.
  • You Are What You Hate: Is probably the most vitriolic prep about the poor and working class and the most boastful about his wealth. In reality, his dad lost the family fortune and now he has to work his way through Bullworth.

Chad Morris

  • Enemy Mine: In The Wrong Part of Town, he pairs up with Jimmy and Algie against the greasers.
  • Extremity Extremist: Averts it exactly like Bryce does.
  • Frivolous Lawsuit: One of his many threats.
    "Hit me hard, and my daddy sues!"
  • Hidden Depths: Is hinted to be an environmentalist, used to run track, and was an applicant for the Glee Club (he claims he was too big to get in). However, relatively unique among the Preps is that none of his Hidden Depths threaten his status within the clique.
  • Nature Lover: Zig-zagged. He has a dog he loves and is hinted to be an environmentalist, but he's the prep who boasts of having shoes made out of genuine puppy leather.
  • Pet the Dog: As much of a jerk he is, he at least cares about his dog to try defend it during Halloween. He also offers Jimmy to ride his scooter on the weekends.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: "I can afford to break the rules. I'm a prep." - He also tried getting his father to bribe his biology teacher into giving him an A, offers opponents money to let him win fights, and tried begging his mother to access his trust fund.
  • Small, Annoying Creature: His dog Chester. Not only does he attack Jimmy on sight near the lot of Harrington House, his attacks also cost a lot of damage, and he's pretty fast, too.
  • Unblockable Attack: Just like Bryce, a right cross with a long wind-up and a running kick.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: After the Enemy Mine mission above, he leaves Algie and Jimmy because he doesn't want his reputation damaged.
  • Upper-Class Twit: While all the Preppies are this to some degree, Chad is one of the worst offenders. Half of the things he says about himself has to do with money, such as how his watch costs more than Mr. Galloway's car.
    Chad: (towards Ricky and Jimmy) Great, look at this - A bunch of guys whose career aspirations are to work in stores. (later) Do you even have flushing toilets in your trailer? I couldn't imagine it.

Gord Vendome

  • Counter Attack: Frequently
  • First Girl Wins: First Guy Wins. Is popular in the fandom for being the first kissable boy who interacts with Jimmy in the storyline, though it is possible to kiss Cornelius and Trent before him. Not that many people would.
  • Fragile Speedster: He actually has less health than the Bullies but he uses Bif's and Derby's fighting style.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Sometimes he lapses from posh English to normal American. No reason for it, he just does, and no one seems to notice.
  • Slumming It: He's not opposed to the concept, and even laments that he's not allowed to date poor girls because they're 'more real.'

Justin Vandervelde

  • Dirty Coward: Shows hints of this. He tells his enemies that they'll regret it later when battling, and when he's beaten, tells them he could have paid him not to beat him up. His voice tone during battling is also inexplicably shaky.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: Even with 0% Preppies respect, he'll offer money to Jimmy in a side-mission if he can beat his swimming record by the beach in Old Bullworth Vale and beat up the Greasers in New Coventry.
  • Hidden Depths: Actually notes that real friendships are hard to come by at Bullworth, and that everyone is just using each other. He is also considerably into sports and wants to form an alliance between the Jocks.
  • Improbable Weapon User: His Weapon of Choice? Eggs, provided most of the Preps do too but he actually references this in his fight dialogue.
  • Jerk Jock: Is obsessed with sports and wants an alliance between the Preps and Jocks.
  • Pungeon Master: Loves to make egg related puns as insults.
    These yolks crack me up!
    You look a little scrambled!
    You look a little shell-shocked!
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: During one of his attacks similar to the one Derby uses during his boss fight except he always ducks before performing it and he doesn't have Derby's additional uppercut.
  • Unblockable Attack: Yet another user of the same, slow overhand right cross.
  • Verbal Tic: He uses the word "peon" as not only an insult, but even if he's talking nicely to some people.
  • Weapon of Choice: Eggs. While most of the preppies use eggs, Justin uses them the most, and his dialogue reflects it well. He also carries around a paddle sometimes during freeroam, although not as common as his eggs.

Parker Ogilvie

  • Ambiguously Bi: A couple of Dummied Out lines for a beta "Small Offences" show Parker getting distressed at a gnome's relationship with Gord. Since the know in question is male, it is possible Parker was intended to be the bi preppy.
  • Anti-Villain: Acts like an arrogant prep largely out of habit rather than any actual malice. A lot of his dialogue indicates that he's actually a pretty decent guy and that he doesn't enjoy senseless violence.
  • Apologetic Attacker: When starting a fight, he'll sometimes remark that he'll feel sorry about it later or that whoever he's fighting should just run away.
  • Casanova Wannabe: He is completely hopeless with women, and really wants a girlfriend.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: His Dummied Out interactions with his garden gnome are very similar to someone going through a rocky relationship, only for their partner to die.
  • Jerkass Façade: Whenever he does something nice, he immediately goes into damage control. He sometimes gives money to beggars, but always insults them afterwards to his friends. He is willing to be friends with people outside the clique, as long as he's not seen with them.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: An unusual case, he seems to be a nice guy by nature and has trouble balancing his nice guy impulses with the arrogance that the Preppies demand.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Can't get a girlfriend and is implied to not really be happy with his friends.
  • Our Gnomes Are Weirder: Deleted audio has him being... very fond of a gnome he calls Gnomey, left in tears after its destruction.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: He has the exact same fighting style as Justin.
  • Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense: He doesn't understand why he isn't a jerkass like the other Preps, and he doesn't understand why he can't buy a girlfriend and often friends.
  • Unblockable Attack: Shares Justin's overhand right cross.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Calls out Jimmy for helping Johnny beat up fellow Prep Gord when they're supposed to be allied at that point in the game.
    "Some leader you turned out to be!"

Tad Spencer

  • Abusive Parents: His father beats both him and his mother, as evidenced by some of the responses he gives in fights. Like most stuff in the game, these are played for laughs.
  • Big Fancy House: Even by prep standards - his garage has its own address. The Spencer estate features in a few missions.
  • Counter Attack: Frequently.
  • Distinction Without a Difference: During "The Eggs":
    Tad: Now, tell me, Hopkins. Is true you said I was inbred?
    Jimmy: No.
    Tad: Because first cousins is legal, my friend. Legal.
    Jimmy: Yeah, Okay.
    Tad: Yeah, and just because my elder brother doesn't have a chin and ended up in a lunatic asylum, it doesn't mean anything.
    Jimmy: Whatever, Tad, your family is your business.
    Gary: Don't lie, Jimmy. You said Tad was probably a hermaphrodite with that much inbreeding.
    Jimmy: Hermaphro-what?
    Gary: Don't act dumb. You said his mom is also legally his aunt, and that he probably had webbeb toes.
    Tad: I don't. Well, only on one foot.
  • Domestic Abuse: His dad hits his mother. He's not happy about it.
  • Fragile Speedster: Has the same fighting style as Gord and goes down just as quickly.
  • Kissing Cousins: "First cousins is legal, my friend. Legal."
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Of the awful family life variety.
  • Nouveau Riche: Pretends to be Old Money. Is happy explaining this situation to everyone, from Jimmy to his fellow preps, so it's unclear why he even bothers.
  • Race Fetish: Downplayed - His prerelease bio claims he wants to be English, and he speaks in a false English accent to help his insecurity. Of course, his natural voice cracks in when he's really angry.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: He wants to make his overbearing father proud.


Johnny Vincent

  • Arch-Enemy: To Derby.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: A defining trait. His hopelessly, hot-headed devotion to Lola combine with her casual infidelity drives the plot of Chapter 3 and his incarceration during Chapter 5.
  • Custom Uniform: Him and his clique all wear the regular uniform but wear some form of jacket over them. While most of his clique wear leather jackets, two of them wear denim instead. Johnny's leather jacket is unique in the fact that it has two belt buckles underneath it.
  • Extremity Extremist: Averted in the game, but uncovered beta animations indicate that originally his fighting style was composed entirely of kicks.
  • Full-Name Basis: Lola and Peanut call him Johnny. Everybody else calls him Johnny Vincent.
  • Glass Cannon: He has a very damaging fighting style, but very little health for a clique leader.
  • Grapple Move: Unique among other kids in that there's no way to avoid it if he decides to use it.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: He and his clique all wear leather jackets over their school uniforms with the exceptions of Lucky and Lefty.
  • Kick Them While They Are Down: Or punch them in this case. In fact, the Greasers (excluding Hal and Norton) are the only characters besides Jimmy who will attack enemies knocked down to the ground.
  • Love Makes You Dumb: Chapter 3 wouldn't have happened if he didn't act like an idiot over Lola
  • Mixed Martial Arts: Johnny and all the other Greasers fight skillfully, blocking punches often and using all of their limbs and any other advantage available in contrast to the Preppies.
  • Mr. Fanservice: In-Universe, he's considered very attractive by most of the girls in school, including Mandy.
  • My Girl Is Not a Slut: What he so desperately wants to believe about Lola.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: If the above traits weren't enough of a hint, then he's seriously devoted to Lola.
  • Spiteful Spit: After successful landing an axe-kick on an enemy.
  • Third-Person Person: Uses this a lot.
    Ain't nobody making a fool of Johnny Vincent!
    Oh, you took down Johnny Vincent!
  • Trash Talk: Everyone has this but he's notable for having unique lines during two of his strongest attacks: Namely the aforementioned axe kick and his grapple-haymaker.
  • Unblockable Attack: Two of them, and they're very effective - The first one is his haymaker where he grapples the opponent and slams them down to the ground. The second one is his axe-kick where he rubs the opponent's face into the ground and spits on them.

Lola Lombardi

  • Bare Your Midriff: The school for some reason, is forgiving on Lola for wearing a belly shirt instead of a school uniform. She does switch out to a sweater during the winter chapter.
  • Can't Live With Them, Can't Live Without Them: Pretty much how her side of her relationship with Johnny works. She appears to actually have feelings for him despite her cheating habits.
  • Fille Fatale: She's pretty overtly sexual with her dialogue (bike races make her... excited) and she's already using her looks to con gifts and homework help out of the male students.
  • Going Commando: Implied. Trent claims that she falls under this trope, though it's possible that it's wishful thinking on his part...then again, it IS Lola.
    Trent: Lola doesn't wear underwear, she showed me."
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: She wears a leather jacket over a pink belly shirt and tight leather pants. No clue how she gets away with it since Bullworth is supposed to have a school uniform.
  • Hidden Depths: Seriously. Blink and you'll miss hearing it, but she philosophizes about the point of life and humanity. She also enjoyed reading The Iliad.
  • It's All About Me: She gets upset when Johnny is angry with her, but never figures out that her casual infidelity is what keeps setting him off.
  • No Dress Code: How she manages to get away with her outfit in Bullworth is a mystery.
  • Really Gets Around: Yep. Chapter 3 starts with her cheating on Johnny with Gord. She also cheats with Chad, and even led Algie on.
  • Your Cheating Heart: She's Johnny's girlfriend. She is not exclusive.

Norton Williams

  • Drop the Hammer: "The Tenements" ends with a showdown vs. the last remaining Greaser, Norton Williams — and his sledgehammer. This would be a good time to load the slingshot and run.
  • Elite Mook: Uses guard-breaking combos, a damaging Grapple Move, and has higher health than most of the other free-roaming Greasers.
  • Gentle Giant: Sort of. He still bullies and fights, but he also likes to contemplate poetry and artwork.
  • Large and in Charge: It's unclear whether he or Peanut is the clique's 2nd in command, but it is clear which one of them listens to the other one.
  • L33t L1ng0: He references it disparagingly when fighting a nerd.
    Norton: If you say owned, pwned, or ownage, I'm going to make this hurt a lot more than it has to.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Fights in a wrestling stance and uses a bearhug from a grapple.

Peanut Romano

Hal Esposito

Lefty Mancini

  • Smoking Is Cool: Fully believes this. He's already got a chain-smoking habit and he keeps a cigarette behind his ear.
  • Knife Nut: Also a fan of switchblade knives. Supposedly he accidentally swallowed one once.

Lucky De Luca

  • Brats with Slingshots
  • Hidden Depths: Looks like just another Greaser. Advocates staying in school, and learning a trade even if you do choose higher education as well.
  • Incoming Ham:
    "I can destroy anyone! ANYONE!"
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Not the biggest one on campus, but he still has a pretty inflated view of himself, and is frustrated when others don't feel the same way about him. He also thinks he could take anyone on in a fight and makes excuses for why he apparently lost a fight to a boxer.

Ricky Pucino

Vance Medici

  • Jive Turkey: Mixed with Rhymes on a Dime
    "What's buzzin', cousin?"
    "What's your tale, nightingale?"
    "What's the deal, pinwheel?"
    "You're cruisin' for a bruisin'!"
  • Pirate: His halloween costume.
  • Bi the Way: Aside from his fixation on his hair (which to be fair isn't necessarily 'gay' anyhow) he doesn't really give any evidence that he might prefer guys.
  • Nobody Touches the Hair: Very much.


Ted Thompson

  • Arch-Enemy: To Earnest.
  • Custom Uniform: He wears a gym outfit with a varsity jacket. Most of his clique wear some form of athletic gear instead of the normal uniform.
  • Deadly Lunge: He uses a special jumping tackle that counts as a Grapple Move. Shared with most of his clique too.
  • Groin Attack: Ted and the other jocks tends to use this if they manage to grapple someone to the ground.
  • Jerk Jock: Not that the others aren't, but Ted is the biggest one. He just doesn't get enough screen-time to show it, but if you edit him to appear in free-roam like normal students, it clearly shows.
  • I Know Madden Kombat: Ted and all the other jocks tend to incorporate sports into their combat whether it be boxing punches, football tackles, throwing explosive footballs, using baseball bats or wrestling moves.
  • Suicidal Overconfidence: He mocks Jimmy in the fourth chapter and regards him as a psycho for defeating the Preps and Greasers and claims that Jimmy isn't a threat to him because he's taken down linebackers.
  • Tennis Boss: His chapter boss fight mixed in with Flunky Boss. You have to toss the explosive footballs he throws at you at the defenders surrounding him while you're being attacked by other jocks. Once they're all down, it becomes a Zero-Effort Boss where his titled healthbar depletes in one hit.

Mandy Wiles

  • Arch-Enemy: To Beatrice. She mocks her frequently on the notification board, and she enjoys humiliating her.
  • All Guys Want Cheerleaders: She's widely considered the hottest girl in the school.
  • Alpha Bitch: Considering the academy she attends, and her treatment of Beatrice, it's something you would expect.
    Mandy: Let's see. Who should I humiliate and socially destroy today?
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: After the risque posters of her are put up and Jimmy tears them down even though she'd never been anything but mean to him, she starts being nicer to people.
  • Heel Realization: She admits that, even if the humiliation she suffered was very harsh, she did pretty much have it coming for being so mean to everyone.
  • Hidden Depths: Implied to be deeply insecure and suffering from an eating disorder.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Even before the events of Chapter 4, Angie claims that Mandy's actually really nice once you actually get to know her. One of the townspeople also claims she is a churchgoing girl.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: starts showing interest in Jimmy after he helps her.
  • The Smurfette Principle: The only female jock.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: She becomes more good-natured and likable after getting knocked off the top of the social totem.

Damon West

  • Blood Knight: Loves fighting to the point that the townspeople will make comments about him. He also wants to fight a gorilla. This shows in gameplay. If Jimmy has less than 50% respect from the jocks (which he will for most of the game), Damon will always attack Jimmy on-sight if he's around the gym, while most jocks will give him a warning if his respect isn't too far below 50%. He has the same reaction to Nerds.
  • Boss in Mook Clothing: Downplayed compared to Bif, but he hits hard and has a lot more health than other students, not to mention he's almost guaranteed to be accompanied by other jocks.
  • Deadly Lunge: Shared with Ted.
  • The Determinator: In the boss fight against the Jocks, Damon West is pelted with exploding footballs. He dusts himself off and proclaims that a little blood never hurt anyone.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: Subverted - See The Starscream.
  • Enemy Summoner: Those aforementioned on-sight attacks are usually followed by every jock in the surrounding area running in to help him.
  • Scary Black Kid: Larger and stronger than everyone else in the school to the point even the townsfolk fear him.
  • The Starscream: Subverted. Damon may be tougher than Ted and he talks a bit of crap about how he'd make a better clique leader than Ted behind Ted's back, but whenever he's around Ted he's servile and repeats everything Ted says. Also justified in that Ted's the quarterback and thus the most important player on the football team and thus the most important Jock - if Damon were to try to take over the clique he'd probably just get kicked out of it.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: He's one of the few characters in the entire game that never blocks attacks, but he's still resilient and aggressive enough to take down most students if he gets involved in fighting.

Bo Jackson

  • Aloof Big Brother: It's implied he is the big brother of Gloria and Lance. If so, he fits this trope.
  • Anti-Villain: He's as violent and aggressive as the other jocks in gameplay, but his dialogue indicates that he just wants to pass his classes and that he dislikes how most of the jocks act like Jerkasses. He seems all too happy to transfer to a more normal school and the only thing keeping him from doing so is the possibility of becoming the new quarterback after Ted graduates.
  • Cranium Coverings: A Baseball cap. Hit him a few times and it'll fall off.
  • Good Parents: One of the few kids to talk about his parents who has a well-adjusted but not overly reliant relationship with them.
  • Hypocrite: He calls Jimmy a Bully for 'apparently' burning down the Gym and quite a bit of his dialogue indicates that he thinks Jimmy's a jerk. Yeah sure Bo, Jimmy is the bully.
  • Informed Attribute: In the same cutscene, Jimmy claims that he likes to torment weaker kids, but he's generally one of the least malicious clique-members in the school.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Lovable Jock: Bo's the jock who's a nice guy by nature but forced to be a jerk by peer pressure and social expectations. He's a bit of a counterpart to Parker in the Preppies.

Casey Harris

Dan Wilson

  • Deadly Lunge: Shared with Kirby and most of the jocks.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Smaller than most of the other jocks and Jimmy himself, but he's a great fighter.
  • The Quisling: He was a nerd alongside his brother Thad, then he turned on them to join the Jocks.

Juri Karamazov

  • Blood Knight: Well, as close as one can get in a school environment. When watching a fight, he often offers to take on the winner.
  • Elite Mook: Uses guard-breaking combos, a damaging Grapple Move, and has higher health than most of the other free-roaming Jocks.
  • Funny Foreigner: Speaks in a moderately thick eastern-European accent.
  • He-Man Woman Hater: He's greatly frustrated that women aren't impressed with his (self-proclaimed) manliness, and attributes it to them being "weak". Also finds everything he doesn't find up to his standards "girly".
  • Hidden Depths: Can be heard pondering about the impacts of pharmaceuticals, and in contrast to the rest of his persona, wondering what it's like to be a girl.
  • Husky Russkie: To be fair it's not certain that he's Russian, but he's pretty big and definitely from eastern Europe.
  • The Social Darwinist: Believes that the strong should always rule.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Wrestling is great! It's true man versus man competition, no room for wimps! He also uses wrestling moves when he fights.

Kirby Olsen

Luis Luna

  • Elite Mook: Uses guard-breaking combos, a damaging Grapple Move, and has higher health than most of the other free-roaming Jocks.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: Even if you have 0% respect from the jocks, he's always willing to play the "Keep-Ups" minigame with Jimmy... granted, they bet money and he's a Sore Loser, but still.
  • Hidden Depths: Some dialogue of his indicates that, despite his disdain for academics, he can at least still perform half decently at them.
  • Out of Focus: Compared to the other jocks, he has no major mission appearances aside from providing back-up and his only cutscene dialogue is during a completely optional minigame.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Uses a wrestling stance like Juri and uses pro wrestling moves when he fights. They're sparring partners.


  • All There In The Voice Files: Everything we know about him was found by listening to all his dialogue lines after the voice files were leaked.
  • Dummied Out: Only appears in one scene in the game - the cutscene at the beginning of The Gym is Burning. Despite this he has a unique fighting style and a full set of dialogue programmed. More curiously, his dialogue set contains the same lines as clique leaders rather than regular students.
  • Fetish: Implied to be part of the reason he's so obsessed with wrestling.
  • He-Man Woman Hater: Even more so than Juri. Combined with Manly Gay, it may be why he was dummied out.
  • Manly Gay: Combined with He-Man Woman Hater - it's speculated that this aspect of his personality is why he got removed from the game.
  • Shout-Out: His name is Bob, and one of the wrestling moves he threatens to use is a cross-face chickenwing - the Finishing Move of real wrestler Bob Backlund.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Both his father and grandfather get on his case to do well at sports and he's paranoid about disappointing them.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Although he's an amateur wrestler, he still threatens to clothesline and suplex his opponents.


Earnest Jones

  • Arch-Enemy: To Ted.
  • Covert Pervert: Unsurprisingly - He frequently talks about getting his collection of "magazines" back from Algie, and he's the one who requires the pictures of Mandy. In addition, we seem him reading one of his imaginary meet-ups with a magazine girl before the big game.
  • Custom Uniform: Him and his clique all wear green Astronomy Club vests or sweaters, and most of them wear bobblehats or scarves during the winter.
  • Joke Character: The nerds have small healthbars (the skinny Nerds have 55 health points, while the fat nerds have 60) and fight with awkward punches, rapid slapping to defend themselves, shoulder barges, and shoving attacks where they fall down themselves. Earnest, himself is a little tougher (he has 100 health points, average for most clique students) but is still a pathetic fighter. From a distance they usually throw stink bombs... which deal Scratch Damage, although...
  • Nerd Glasses: All of the nerds have these. Hit him a few times and they'll fall off. Earnest wears bronze half-moon glasses.
  • Never My Fault: After giving Jimmy the task of sneaking into the girl's dorms and photographing Mandy, he blames Jimmy for the resulting attack by the Jocks.
  • The Social Darwinist: He shows no concern for his friends when Jimmy breaks into the observatory and regards them as his "weakest compadres".
  • Unblockable Attack: Two of them surprisingly. Not that it does him any good. One's the classic rapid slapping attack where he doesn't even look at his opponent. This one's shared with all the nerds. The other one's the shoving attack where he falls on his face. This is shared with only the skinnier nerds.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: In chapter 4 he and the nerds abandon Jimmy when he wants their help in fighting the jocks despite Jimmy helping them in chapter 1 and defeating the bullies, the preppies and the greasers. It is possibly the result of Gary's manipulation. Heck even after chapter 4 where even though Jimmy helped him took down his hated rival the jocks despite the fact that he previously blamed Jimmy for their current position, he immediately turned on him again when rats appeared at their library.
  • Wimp Fight: Unless they're carrying a weapon, fights involving any of the Nerds will invariably end up looking like this. Unsurprisingly enough, Earnest is the weakest boss in Complete Mayhem.

Algernon "Algie" Papadopoulos

  • Butt-Monkey: He's considered the least popular and most uncool kid in the entire school. Even Crabblesnitch refers to him as "that fat boy who wets himself."
  • Momma's Boy: Algie's mother spoiled him horribly before he came to Bullworth, and it's part of why he so completely fails to fit in.
  • Nerd Glasses: His comically over-sized coke bottle glasses.
  • Potty Failure: Frequently, and Played for Laughs.
  • Totally Radical: In a bid to try and look cooler, he starts trying to speak (painfully) in Jive. He only stops if he's spoken to in the way he normally speaks.
    Algernon: Yo, Jimmy, I'm over here! Gimme five, dude!
    Jimmy: Ahh, no.
    Algernon: Heh, heh... Yeah, well, cat, looks like your homies took care of some lames for us.
    Jimmy: What are you talking about?
    Algernon: Don't get fresh wit' your homies!
    Jimmy: Can you please talk normally?
    Algernon: This is my normal style of rapping, bro. Hoo, hoo, hoo!
    Jimmy: Alright, enough! WHAT'S MY QUEST?
    Algernon: Ah, right. Salutations, sir James!
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Especially in the mission 'Save Algie'. His cries for help when a bully gets near him could shatter glass.
  • Unblockable Attack: Uniquely, he only has the rapid slapping attack.

Beatrice Trudeau

Bucky Pasteur

Cornelius Johnson

  • Black and Nerdy
  • Camp Bi: Jimmy can seduce him, and he seems to go gaga for boys giving him romantic presents. Talk around the school says he played a dead-on Juliet in the school play. He also has an unrequited crush on Mandy.
  • Expy: Some people say they see him as an expy of Steve Urkel
  • Nerd Glasses: The same pair as Earnest's, only with a lighter colour.
  • Unblockable Attack: Same deal as with Earnest.

Donald Anderson

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Well, beware the mild-mannered ones. Donald is the stereotypical rage-filled nerd and he keeps a meticulous list of people he hates, claiming that they'll all be sorry one day.
  • Nerd Glasses: His bronze half-moon glasses, which are smaller than Cornelius and Earnest's.
  • Insufferable Genius: He loves to call people idiots and put up his own intelligence while denigrating other peoples.
  • Unblockable Attack: Same deal as with Earnest.

Fatty Johnson
  • Big Eater: Once seen bolting down chocolate and smearing it all over his face; Trent claims that once he tried to give Fatty a wedgie and found a piece of pizza in his pants. However, some dialogue indicates he eats to relieve himself from his parents' constant bickering.
  • The Glasses Come Off: Inverted - He's a competent fighter for a nerd when he fights, but he doesn't even do anything when wrestling.
  • Gonk: His beta version was even worse - Francois was fatter than Fatty and didn't have his pants pulled up. As shown in his page image, he has facial resemblance to a pig.
  • Nerd Glasses: The same pair as Bucky's except in a darker colour.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: He calls himself Fatty, even. (A beta version of the character was named Francois.)
  • Unblockable Attack: Replaces the shoving attack with a unique combo: A slap attack, usually followed by a shoulder barge. Useful enough to take down even bullies from time to time.
  • Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: Not as much as Melvin but still.

Melvin O'Connor

Thad Carlson

  • Badass Bookworm: He's just as weak as the other nerds. but he tends to have a yardstick on hand, allowing him to fight much more competently. He also seems to have built something of a reputation among the other students, despite being a member of the lowest clique in the Bullworth hierarchy.
  • Blood Knight: A more downplayed example - hile he isn't exactly a strong fighter, he's mentioned as MacGyvering things into weapons and often carries a yardstick with him. He also the one who often acts territorial to other students near the library and will often attack other students unprovoked.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Thad's Weapon of Choice is a yardstick.
  • Covert Pervert: Surprisingly, Thad's found to be the one who's wallpapering Bullworth Town with nude posters of Mandy.
  • Fiery Redhead: A Spirited Competitor, playing on the Nerd's dodgeball team and the only Nerd to always fight rather than cower, at least during missions.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Apparently, he's one of the key weapons-makers of the Nerds; according to Troy, he built a grenade out of an eraser.
  • Nerd Glasses: His brown oblong-shaped glasses, which are much more crooked compared to the others. He also wears ski-glasses when playing Dodgeball.
  • Noodle Incident: Whatever happened between him, Peanut, and a yardstick. Apparently it didn't hurt Peanut enough, according to the other Nerds, and the Preps were only mildly happy.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: As well as being a lot more aggressive than most Nerds, Thad reportedly attacked Peanut Romano a year before the game began, hitting him hard enough to break his yardstick over Peanut's head. For good measure, he managed to escape a beating from the Greasers in spite of this.
  • Speech Impediment: Speaks like this.
    Thith time, I am furiouth. I'm gonna kick your ath!
  • Unblockable Attack: Same deal as with Earnest.
  • Worthy Opponent: Considered this by the other cliques.

    Non-Clique Students 

Angie Ng

  • Adorkable: Shy and awkward to the point of admitting that boys make her nervous, but no less cute.
  • All Asians Know Martial Arts: Averted in her hard-to-hear fighting quotes.
    I don't know Kung Fu, but I'll still kick your ass!
  • Gossipy Hens: Unlike her friend Christy though, the rumors she discuss tend to better reflect current events and are overall more grounded in reality.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Christy.
  • The Hyena: Often laughs and giggles regardless of her current situation which leads to...
  • Meganekko: Angie wears glasses and she's usually one of the nicest girls on campus.
  • Mirthless Laughter: She laughs when someone flirts with her and makes her nervous, when someone scares her, and sometimes just when she can't think of anything to say or do.
  • Nice Girl: One of the friendlier and more innocent students on-campus. When she sees other students fighting, she criticizes them and tries to get them to stop rather than cheer them on.
  • Token Minority: Angie is the only Asian student at Bullworth.
  • Well Done Daughter Girl: She constantly stresses out over getting good grades and not disappointing her mother.

Christy Martin

  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's bubbly and friendly. She also talks about setting the school on fire, claims she can use her tie as a garotte, and made a girl run away by spreading a rumour about her.
  • Fiery Redhead: Her fiery-ness is much more muted than that of her brother, but if she gets pushed too far, as described above she can get vicious.
  • Gossipy Hens: Judging by her dialogue, Christy seems to be very fond of spreading rumors. Some of the things she says indicates she is the one creating pretty much all of it.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Angie.
  • Really Gets Around: She'll make out with anybody. Anybody.
  • Redhead In Green: It's just coincidence that Christy has red hair and that the Bullworth Non-Clique uniform is a shade of green, but she does fit the letter of the trope.

Constantinos Brakus

Eunice Pound
3 models for Eunice: Summer, Winter, and as a dancing fairy in the Christmas pageant
  • Abhorrent Admirer: But you can still make out with her if you wish.
  • Big Eater: "Ever been kicked out of an all-you-can-eat buffet?"
    • She's also the only girl who will only kiss you if you giver her a box of chocolates rather than flowers like all the other girls.
  • Fat Girl: The only one in school, no less, unless you count Miss Peters.
  • Gonk: Not only is she fat, but she was given an unflattering hairstyle and a very husky, stupid-sounding voice.
  • Hidden Depths: Her free-roam quotes hint that she is insecure and unhappy, effects from her weight, and talks about dieting and doing sports to shed it. Despite this, she believes things will be better for her soon.
  • Jerkass: If her appearance doesn't put you off, her rudeness during conversations will. She does admit she's unforgiving, though. Also, when you first enroll in the school, she'll bully you, unlike any other girl.
  • Noodle Incident: At one point you find her coming out of a bathroom stall. From a boy's bathroom. Accompanied by Pedro. There's no explanation given.

Gloria Jackson

  • Black and Nerdy: Though she's really more just extremely scholastically-oriented rather than socially awkward and into dorky hobbies like the Nerds clique.
  • Likes Older Men: Downplayed - She mentions Oscar Wilde is attractive and has a very obvious crush on Jimmy, judging by responding to her positively. Played straight in the beta, since she was able to be kissed, which may suggest she was intended to be older.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: During the mission "Rudy The Red Nosed Santa", her tone of voice changes completely, her Purple Prose is gone, and she talks extremely fast.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Often talks like this.
  • Teen Genius: Unlike most of the other supposed geniuses in the school she really is that smart, and usually pleasant enough to avoid being an Insufferable Genius.

Gordon Wakefield

  • The B Grade: Constantly complaining about this - even thinks Galloway should be fired for daring to give him one. No sign he actually deserves any higher.
  • Big Ego, Hidden Depths: One of the few aversions among the cast's big heads. Most other characters with an inflated opinion have some redeeming traits or insecurities - Gordon just thinks he's that great.
  • Casanova Wannabe: He knows he's a good kisser. He's practiced for years on his arm.
  • It's All About Me: Doesn't understand the fuss about equality, brags about his handsomeness, and can often respond to other students' musings by saying "that's great, but not as great as me." He can't stand for positive words to be said about anyone but him.
  • Jerkass: Probably the most unpleasant of the non-clique students. He's far more contemptible a guy than a lot of clique members.
  • Miles Gloriosus: Boasts of his courage and fighting skills - is a massive coward in fights and can frequently be seen crying in fear on the Ferris Wheel.
  • Small Name, Big Ego:
    Gordon: What a silly question! Of course I'm the center of my universe!

Ivan Alexander

Karen Johnson

Lance Jackson

  • Black and Nerdy: Played with. Has nerdy interests, but lacks the social awkwardness of the nerds and decries how reading has obtained nerdy connotations.
  • Nice Guy: Arrogance aside, he's generally one of the more pleasant students on campus, always supportive of others whether they're complaining or bragging, and he hates senseless violence even when personally participating in a fight.
  • Only Sane Man: Views himself as this.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Downplayed, mostly. Although he's not as narcissistic as Gordon, Lance can be very haughty and arrogant. Unlike Gordon, however, his own ego seems to be grounded in reality.
  • Straight Man: If you think about it, Lance is the most normal character in the entire game. He just has such a minuscule role it doesn't show much.

Melody Adams

  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: About 80% of what comes out of her mouth is about how much she loves school and how well she behaves herself, and most of the rest is complaining about other people not being the same way. But she's by far the nastiest of the little kids. She's also the student who catches Jimmy in the girls dorm during a mission.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: She's the stereotypical unbearable goody-two-shoes.
  • Precision B Strike: It's usually tough to get Melody mad enough at you to fight, but her dialogue for beginning an attack? "Bring it, bitch!"
  • Teacher's Pet: Not to Sheldon's extent, but she's fairly close, being the one who pulls the fire alarm during the aforementioned mission.
  • Troubling Unchildhood Behavior: A relatively mild example, but it's jarring to hear her threaten to make someone her bitch.

Pedro de la Hoya

  • Ambiguously Brown: Has a Spanish name, and appears to have a slight tan. His accent is anything but Hispanic.
  • Hero-Worshipper: He looks up to Jimmy to the point of calling him "Sir".
  • Out-of-Character Moment:
    • He assigns Jimmy two errands - one to put a "Kick Me" sign on someone and another stuff people in trash cans - and acts a vicious brat while giving the errands. This brattiness isn't reflected in any other aspect of his character or in any of his dialogue, and he even has a couple other errands he assigns while under his usual personality.
    • During "Rudy The Red Nosed Santa", he also acts like a brat who thinks he "never gets what [he] want[s]". Even is voice is seriously different. Justified, as his original actor didn't return to voice him.
  • Momma's Boy: Maybe not to the extent of Algie, but he's close.
  • Noodle Incident: At one point you find him in a bathroom stall with Eunice. No explanation given.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: You wouldn't think so, but he can occasionally be encountered fighting a bully like Trent, and can easily hold his own — usually getting several shots in before he gets hit and the prefects come running.

Ray Hughes

  • Joke Character: All he ever does in a fight is shove. That said, it counts as an Unblockable Attack.
  • Mr. Imagination: He likes to imagine himself doing things he's seen in movies or read about in books, and occasionally blabs out what he's imagining, like claiming to be an undercover cop investigating underage drinking parties.
  • New Transfer Student: He was this a while before Jimmy came along. He still finds it difficult to fit into school.
  • Nice Guy: A cheerful, amiable fella who wouldn't harm a fly.
  • Official Couple: To Eunice, by virtue of being the only boy that is programmed to be seen holding hands with her.
  • Unblockable Attack: His shove, which is also his only attack.

Sheldon Thompson

  • Asshole Victim: He mentions being the butt of many pranks in the school (and the player can do so, too), but seeing his obnoxious attitude, he has it coming.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: An obnoxious goody two-shoes teacher's pet like Melody.
  • Catch-Phrase: "Hi! It's me, Sheldon!"
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: You wouldn't think so, but he can occasionally encountered fighting a bully like Trent, and can easily hold his own.
  • Teacher's Pet: Most of his dialogue is him bragging about how he helps the teachers and how they are his "friends", yet both Hattrick and Crabblesnitch find him annoying.

Trevor Moore


Edgar Munsen

  • Ambiguously Brown: His skin tone and clothing style are both Hispanic, but his accent is anything but. His last name is a southern American last name, his first name could be either American, British or Hispanic.
  • Blood Knight: Not as much as the other Townies, but he clearly seems to be enjoying himself after taking down some of the bullies during the final mission.
  • Remember the New Guy: The penultimate Townies mission has Jimmy telling Zoe that he needs to find "that Edgar kid". Prior to this Edgar hadn't even been mentioned, let alone properly introduced as a character.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Edgar and most of the other Townies use jumping double axehandles and clotheslines in combat. Gurney and Jerry replace the clothesline attack with a Grapple Move. It's one of the more damaging fighting styles in the games.

Omar Romero

Clint (aka Henry)

  • Axe-Crazy: In his introductory cutscene in Scholarship Edition, he bashes himself in the head repeatedly.
  • Noodle Incident:
    Clint: A cheeseburger is supposed to have cheese! Dumb broad...


  • Amusing Injuries: He claims to have broken his collarbone three times, and he likes having scars because "chicks dig them". He also apparently suffered plenty while trying to break into the Girls Dormitory.
  • Bi the Way: Never does anything remotely effeminate and is openly interested in girls. The only clue you get that he's bisexual is that he'll accept flowers and kiss you.
  • Had To Be Sharp: Given that he might be formally part of the nerd clique then this trope may apply since the nerds are weak and cowardly while the Townies are one of the tougher cliques.
  • Nerd: Implied to have previously been one. He still enjoys Grottoes and Gremlins, and in one cutscene tries to get the other Townies interested in it.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He's shorter than most of the other Townies but he can fight just as well as them, being able to hold his own against the tougher students at Bullworth.


  • Good Hair, Evil Hair: His beard, according to the trope image, puts him well south of neutral.
  • Grapple Move: One of the two only Townies to use one of these, specifically a running spear tackle that forces people to the ground, followed up with either a Groin Attack or a headbutt
  • Lean and Mean: Tall and skinny; his actions during "The Gym Is Burning" would have killed 3 students if Jimmy hadn't shown up.
  • Mad Bomber: Was responsible for the arsonist attack in "The Gym Is Burning". He even uses firecrackers in combat.
    Gurney: Looks like I lit a little fire under your butts!


  • Grapple Move: Just like Gurney, he can spear tackle students to the ground and perform either a Groin Attack or a headbutt
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Often believes the reason he got expelled from Bullworth was for being "too smart" - in liklihood, he's probably about as Book Dumb as the rest of the Townies.
    Jerry: Most people don't even like me because I'm more cleverer than them.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: Just like Gurney, he'll switch to firecrackers in combat from a distance.


  • The Slacker: Depressed over the fact that he'll have to get a job some day, loves being a juvenile because it means he's not held responsible for his actions.

Otto Tyler

  • Napoleon Complex: A mild one; he's one of the smallest townies but calls everyone "kid."
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: His short height doesn't keep him from kicking as much ass as the other Townies.


Seth Kolbe

  • Ax-Crazy: And HOW.
  • Bad Cop/Incompetent Cop: All of the school's Prefects are overly violent, power abusing and corrupt bullies. Seth is just the best example.
  • Hypocrite: Seth likes to call the kids "evildoers". Pretty rich coming from someone who enjoys abusing his authority to pick on innocent people.
  • Jerkass: Constantly threatening students with beatings, and really seems to enjoy it to boot.

Karl Branting

  • Bad Cop/Incompetent Cop: Thankfully not as abusive or power abusing as Seth, but he's definitely well south of good.
  • Jerkass: Not to the extent of Seth, but he becomes very close, since he uses his power to beat people up, and threatens to get revenge on people who cross his line.
  • Large Ham: He was definitely designed with this role in mind.
    Good Lord! I appear to have been knocked over!
    Argh! That is disgusting and unhygienic!
  • The Napoleon: Another mild case - He's about a head shorter than the other prefects and occasionally makes a comment that makes it sound like he's self conscious about it.
  • Purple Prose: Downplayed - He drags out his sentences as long as possible and enunciates everything he says, but most of his dialogue doesn't have any traces of archaic, complex wording.
  • Token Minority: The only black member of the Prefects.

Edward Seymour II

  • Bring My Brown Pants: One of his knocked-out lines: "I need new underwear..."
  • Large Ham: Kneeeeeeeeeeeel before Edward! Ragh!
  • STD Immunity: Averted. He seems to have contracted... something. He didn't even know you could get a rash there... and it itches like crazy. He also calls himself a stud-muffin constantly.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Hot dogs apparently.
  • Upper-Class Twit: Considering his family is rich, he's a member of the sailing and yacht club, and he brags about his numerous awards, it's likely Edward's just using his position to pad out his resume.

Max McTavish

  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Appears to be an in-training version of this. His style of imposing authority consists of berating students with gross insults such as "toiletstain" and "smearwipe."
  • Graceful Loser: In one of his knocked-out lines, he actually tells the winner "You should become a Prefect."
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: If only compared to the other prefects - he may be a total Jerkass, but he's the only one interested in law and order, and unlike the other prefects, is actually interested in going on to a career in the military or police. Edward is self-absorbed, and Karl and Seth are malicious bullies.


Mr. Burton

  • Abusive Parents: His father apparently beat him constantly as a child and he's still scarred to this day. This might explain his arrogant behaviour towards his students.
  • All Men Are Perverts: One mission of his involves the main character sneaking into the girls' dorm to steal their panties to give to him.
  • Career-Ending Injury: Hurt his knee while trying to become a pro football player, had to become a coach at Bullworth instead. He's quite bitter about it.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Desperately seeking a girlfriend, yet doesn't realize no one wants to hook up with him.
  • Dirty Old Man: Buys porn, recruits Jimmy to steal girls' panties, gets Zoe expelled because he hit on her and she refused him. He was even more so in the beta version, where one errand involved photographing him trying to seduce woman.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Gym teacher version.
    Mr. Burton: Ah, dodgeball! How I love the sound of boys crying in the morning!
  • Fat Bastard: Despite being a gym teacher, Mr Burton isn't exactly the fittest man on campus.
  • No Indoor Voice: Constantly loudmouthed even when trying to deny walking out a store selling explicit magazines.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: Even though he encourages both bullying and fighting, he'll still bust people for doing so, even jocks.
  • Pet the Dog: The more gym classes Jimmy passes, the more Mr. Burton comes to respect him, eventually professing that he's tougher than he originally thought.

Mrs. Carvin

  • Born in the Wrong Century: Extremely outdated clothing, dislikes modern society, and mentions that she has't changed her hair in about 30 years.
  • Pet the Dog: After Jimmy exterminates all the rats in "Rats in the Library", she offers to "forget" about any late fees Jimmy would have accumulated for unreturned books. Jimmy remarks that he already has before thanking her.
  • Scary Librarian: Invoked. She even considers wearing glasses for the sole purpose of making herself look more intimidating.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: She has a fear of rats. One of the storyline missions in the game for the Nerds involves killing an infestation of them in the library for her.

Miss Danvers

  • Chekhov's Gunman: After Jimmy vandalizes the town hall, she can be heard scorning him for it, although she cannot be seen. Later in the chapter, she calls him to the front office so he can be expelled for it. For sharp-eared players, this could be an Oh, Crap! moment, as it implies she saw what you did.
  • Jerkass: The PA announcements around the school shows she really hates the students (apart from Sheldon and Derby), and refers to them as "little monsters". She goes as far as insulting Beatrice when calling her to receive her college applications.
    Miss Danvers: (through PA) Your attention please... Oh, nevermind, you little monsters.
  • Sassy Secretary: To anyone who isn't Dr. Crabblesnitch
  • Sexy Secretary: She looks like someone who might have been a hot secretary 20 years ago. Interestingly, at one point in Bully's development, she was younger and hotter, as seen in this old image.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: As mentioned above, she's obsessed with Crabblesnitch to the point she talks about him over thirty times in her dialogue sets.
  • Sycophantic Servant: To Dr. Crabblesnitch.
  • Yes-Man: She would never even think of contradicting Dr. Crabblesnitch on anything.


  • Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male: Asks Jimmy to drug Dr. Watts with a sedative so she can do stuff to him...
  • Everyone Has Standards: As disgusting as her cooking is, in an earlier version of The Big Game, she'd exclaim how disgusting it is if Jimmy is caught "spiking" the jock's cooler.
  • Gonk: Her character design is quite grotesque. It only gets worse when she attempts to apply makeup to herself, making her look even worse.
  • Lethal Chef: Quality isn't exactly a priority at Bullworth.
    The only person who is allowed a weapon on campus is me, and I use it to make dinner!
  • Noodle Incident: Apparently she accidentally cooked one of Ms. Philips' cats into a casserole. Later on, the latter leaves a notice about it on the bulletin board.

Mr. Lionel Galloway

  • The Alcoholic: Driven to drinking by relentless bullying over the course of years from Mr. Hattrick.
  • Cool Teacher: His in class dialogue has him offer advice to students, such as doing their homework assignments in class so they'll have more free time in the evenings and hearing that students have been helping each other with coursework and encouraging it, noting that they're learning the value of teamwork. He's also quite friendly with Jimmy and is grateful for all of Jimmy's help.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: One of the few in the school who is actually sympathetic and cares about his students. He holds the rich kids and jocks to the same standards as everyone else, but is fair to them too - Luis Luna tells an anecdote about getting a good grade on an English paper because Mr. Galloway talked him into writing about football.
  • Younger Than They Look: Is only 34 years old. The stress of the job and his alcoholism makes him look at least ten years older.

Mr. Hattrick

  • Cold Sniper: Some of Pedro's dialogue indicates he was a sniper during the Korean War. He could be responsible for the friendly fire incident that destroyed Mr. Grant's platoon in Korea.
  • Fat Bastard: He's considerably pudgy, and is one of the nastiest characters in the game.
  • For the Evulz: Comes from a wealthy family and has no financial need to keep his job at Bullworth - he stays there mainly because he enjoys bullying students and faculty.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: He tries to get Galloway fired for drinking on the job and being hung over in front of the children. Even though he's motivated by his enjoyment of bullying Galloway rather than concern for the kids, and even though years of his bullying is what drove Galloway to drinking in the first place, he's technically right that Galloway's alcohol problems should preclude him from teaching.
    • Though the game takes the point of view that Hattrick's sins (bullying students and teachers alike while helping the rich students cheat and taking kickbacks) are far worse than Galloway's (drinking).
  • Large Ham: He's quite bombastic in his dialogue. Subtlety is definitely not his thing.
  • Older Than They Look: Cut out dialogue suggests he is 48 years old, but by his looks, he seems to be a few years older at best.
  • Sadist Teacher: Doesn't think corporal punishment in school is adequate - he wants capital punishment.
    Children are like dogs! They only learn through frequent punishment!

Mr. Luntz

  • The Starscream: Constantly plotting to take down Dr. Crabblesnitch, although it's unclear why or what he expects to get out of having done so.

Mr. Matthews

Nurse McRae

  • The Fatalist: She believes that life is misery and then you die and that's all there is to it so why try to make anything better.
  • School Nurse: The grouchy and unattractive Western version.


  • Catch-Phrase: "Shut up and get to work."
  • Conspiracy Theorist: Obsessed with government plots. According to him, the Illuminati have taken control of the Western front and are plotting to eradicate Christianity.
  • Delinquents: Was once upon a time the leader of the Greasers.
  • Dummied Out: Besides Dr. Crabblesnitch, he is one of the few non-Scholarship Edition staff who is not set to spawn in free-roam at all. This may be because his Conspiracy Theorist side could hurt the game's rating in some countries.
  • Hot Teacher: According to the girls.
  • Politically Motivated Teacher: Sometimes tries to get the kids to open their eyes to all the government plots he's worried about. He never gets far with it though, because he gets irritated and tells them to shut up and get to work.

Miss Peters

Ms. Deidre Philips

Mrs. Peabody

  • Apathetic Teacher: Claims she has never been happy ever since she was five years old, and considers this to be unfortunate.
  • Does Not Like Boys: Wishes for Bullworth to be an all girls school. Not only does she punish boys unfairly every chance she gets, she outright brags about it too.
  • Gonk: Not to Edna's extent, but she has an unpleasant, pinched, hawkish face set in a perpetual scowl.
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: Downplayed - While she is seen checking the girls washroom and dorm in the school, her actual role of a teacher is unknown. She might actually be the home economics teacher, although there is no hints to her actually being so.

Dr. Slawter

  • Mad Scientist: He's not overtly insane or anything, but he's very morbid and death obsessed, and he likes to get high on ethanol.
  • Meaningful Name: He's the death-obsessed biology teacher. You do the math.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Slawter likes monstrous plants and other morbid scientific curiosities... provided they belong to him, of course.

Dr. Watts

Mr. Wiggins

  • Absent-Minded Professor: Is very knowledgeable on history (especially European), but seems a bit spaced-out on everything else. He mumbles historical facts and debates historical questions with himself under his breath.
  • Delinquents: As a kid. He turned it around while at Bullworth and became a historian. At least the system worked well for one person...
  • Minor Major Character: Due to no real story presence bar one mission cameo in Scholarship Edition and the low spawn rate of teachers in free roam, most players have never encountered him.
  • Trivia: In-universe example: he spouts these under his breath. Did you know that the Spanish Armada had faster ships, but the English ships were more powerful? Or do you want to know how to tell the difference between Italian and Swedish meatballs? Just ask Mr. Wiggins.

    Bullworth Police Department 

Officer Monson

Officer Ivanovich

  • Police Are Useless: Gives Jimmy a couple of errands to do jobs that he should do himself.

Officer Williams

  • Dirty Cop: Double subverted - he's a nice guy and not openly corrupt, but an errand shows he has at least one corrupt dealing with a Bullworth business owner.
  • Glory Days: His days as a high school track star.
  • Police Brutality: Averted.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Seems to genuinely care for juveniles in Bullworth.
  • Token Minority: Only black officer in Bullworth's police department.

Officer Morrison

    Residents of Bullworth 

Miss Abby

Dr. Bambillo

  • The Cobbler's Children Have No Shoes: Despite his profession as a psychologist, he has a ton of his own problems: he's very insecure, he's incredibly superstitious, and he's something of a douche.
  • Confess in Confidence: He doesn't seem to put much stock in doctor-patient confidentiality. His dialogue on the streets and in conversations reveals much about the students of Bullworth - Gary and Bif are apparently on medication, and Damon is apparently mentally ill.
  • Dr. Jerk: He's a doctor, and also one of the haughtiest, most unpleasant residents of Old Bullworth Vale.
  • Pet the Dog: For all of his jerkassery he at least cares enough about his dog to pay Jimmy money to find it in a side-mission.

Mr. Grant (AKA The Hobo)

  • All There in the Manual: Downplayed. His name is revealed to be Mr. Grant in hard-to-find dialogue by townswomen mention his name, and his file names are also Grant.
  • Dummied Out: He doesn't appear outside of the A Little Help hexalogy.
  • Noodle Incident: Grant appears to really dislike Dr. Crabblesnitch. Some dialogue from the Nerds and Bullies in the game indicate he may have been a former teacher before being fired. You can also hear a PA announcement telling students that contrary to rumour, he is not a former teacher, although this contradicts the teacher part.
    • In the game, Grant mentions his platoon was destroyed during a friendly fire incident in Korea. Mr. Hattrick is mentioned to be a Korean War sniper. Seeing Hattrick's dialogue, it's possible he was responsible for the incident.
  • Retired Badass: He was a veteran in the Korean War. In addition, all of the moves he teaches to Jimmy were part of his military combat training.
  • Serious Business: He requires the transistor parts for a project he's making, before it's too late. It's revealed to do with aliens.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After retrieving all the transistors and teaching Jimmy his last move, he is slowly lifted into the sky by a tractor beam. He doesn't appear again, although the beam can still be seen at night.

Ms. Isaacs

  • Pretty in Mink: Her most common outfit is blue coat with a silver fur collar.
  • Stepford Smiler: Talks about her wealth and her loves of Kashmir and pursuing love itself. Actually an arrogant woman whose previous cheating incident left her no choice but to move to a town she dislikes.
  • Your Cheating Heart: She moved to Bullworth in pursue of a love affair after her husband caught her cheating. She is still trying to cover it up, though.

Miss Kopke

  • The One That Got Away: During a fight, she claims she'll beat the person up as if they were her cheating ex.
  • Stepford Smiler: Despite being rather nice from the outside, she suffers from several medical conditions, thinks she needs plastic surgery, and had some form of turbulent relationship in the past. She also cheats on her current husband too.
  • Your Cheating Heart: One errand requires you to take a picture of her cheating with Mr. Martin.

Maria Theresa

  • Dummied Out: All shopkeepers do not appear in free-roam normally. Maria is an example. This is strange since they do have a good bit of dialogue for free-roam, although Maria's is definitely rather incomplete.
  • Sassy Black Woman: And how!
  • Jive Turkey: One of the few characters who uses Ebonics frequently throughout the game.

Mr. Ramirez

Mr. Smith

  • Big, Screwed-Up Family: If you put the random bits of gossip around town together, his family is this. His son was born into privilege but grew up to be a washout who married a woman of ill repute from New Coventry. It's then implied that they are Gary Smith's parents, which would make Mr. Smith his grandfather.
  • Fiction 500: Is rich, even by Bullworth Vale standards.
  • Impossibly Tacky Clothes: His garish gold jewellery and Hawaiian shirt, and in wintertime his leather jacket.
  • Inadequate Inheritor: Views his son as a poor man to inherit his business, but it's too late to stop him.
  • Nouveau Riche: Made his money through his own hard work, unlike a lot of the Bullworth Vale bluebloods.
  • Self-Made Man: He, in his own words, founded...... an Empire.
  • Sketchy Successor: His son is shaping up to be a terrible disappointment.

Zack Owens
Bully's answer to Comic Book Guy
  • Abhorrent Admirer: To Miss Kopke - Apparently he tried asking her out to a comic convention.
  • Bi the Way: While you'll never actually encounter him in free-roam, he can actually be kissed. This is likely some sort of error, since he shares his animations with Eunice, and shouldn't be used as complete evidence.
  • Dummied Out: Like all shopkeepers, he does not spawn in free-roam outside of his appearance in Comic Klepto. Even then, he won't appear for long.
  • Nerd: Being a comic book store owner, what would you expect?
  • Nerd Glasses: Wears round glasses, although they're a lot smaller than Algie's.
  • Speech Impediment: Speaks this way as a result of his asthma.
