open/close all folders
- Action Genre Hero Guy: Jimmy hits almost every beat.
- Badass: He can take on an entire clique's worth of kids at once all by himself.
- 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.
- Book Dumb: Canceled out, luckily, by his Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense rivals.
- 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, only he and Petey wear bright blue vests over their uniforms. 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.
- There's also a scene where Jimmy sees a pack of Townies and claims there's too many of them for him to beat, although that wouldn't be horribly difficult for a player to do.
- 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.
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 Bullford 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.
- Fiery Redhead: A short, pug-faced ginger kid with strawberry blond hair.
- 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.
- 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 Bulworth. 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 Bullsworth.
- The Napoleon: He's short for his age, which is one of the very many things responsible for his general belligerence. However...
- 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.
- Redheaded Bully / Redheaded Hero: Depending on how he's played. There is no benefit to hassling weaker kids, though.
- 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 girl in school is a Statuesque Stunner, towering over all the non-Prefects.
- With the exception of Trent, however, all the kissable guys are on the shorter end of the scale.
- Unwitting Pawn: Gary builds him up as the school hero, only to muddy his reputation in the final act.
- 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 Bulworth 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
- Blessed with Suck: Gary views his own intelligence as this. Although he's diagnosed with ADD, this is another classic symptom of sociopathy: proness to boredom and obsessive need for stimulation.
- Final Boss: He's the last boss fought in the game.
- 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".
- Evil Is Hammy: "Face it: I'M SMARTER THAN YOU! HYAAAAAHH!!"
- For the Evulz: Gary represents abuse of power for its own sake, making him the ultimate bully in Jimmy's eyes.
- Freudian Excuse: Half way through the first chapter he excitedly stated that he was off his meds. His behavior implies that he may also suffer from Schizophrenia. These two factors play a large role in humanizing him.
- Heel Realization:
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.
- I Win Because You Don't: 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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, and setting the gym on fire. Each incident is laid at Jimmy's feet since he promised peace in our time.
- 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 secretly 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- Your Mom: The last mistake he makes before Jimmy kicks his ass is insulting Jimmy's mother.
- 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 often push back when bullied.
- Embarrassing Nickname: He really doesn't care for being called Petey, although he's too meek to do anything about it.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Adults Are Useless: While he means well, he's completely blind to just about everything wrong with the school he runs.
- 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.
- Born in the Wrong Century: He seems to believe the 1950s never ended, going by his style of dress and his attitude towards bullying.
- 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.
- 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.
- Non-Giving-Up School Guy: If provoked in free roam.
- 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...
- Stern Teacher: Revealed at the end.
- Toxic Friend Influence: He views townies, nerds, carnival freaks, and greasers as bad sources of influence, among others.
- Fragile Speedster: Tied with Wade for least-toughest 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.
- Shout-Out: He hates shoes, just like another, more famous Tom.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Oddly, he only takes part in The Setup as backup for Davis and doesn't appear in any other missions involving the Bullies.
- 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
- 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.
- Fiery Redhead: Hot tempered dude with red hair. So, yeah.
- Blond Guys Are Evil: Tied with Trent Northwick for the blondest hair in the game, definitely one of the nastiest characters in it as well.
- Dirty Coward: Lets his friends soften Jimmy up during his boss fight. He also doesn't ever fight Johnny Vincent directly, preferring to let Bif do his dirty work.
- 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."
- 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.
- The Brute: One of the strongest students in the game - only Russell is stronger than him in free roam.
- 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
- Undying Loyalty: To Derby.
- Frivolous Lawsuit: One of his favourite threats.
- 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.
- Sheltered Aristocrat: Outright admits his parents have sheltered him from so much in life.
- Turns Red: Much stronger if you interrupt him while he's practicing fighting.
- 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.
- Enemy Mine: In The Wrong Part of Town, he pairs up with Jimmy and 'Algie' against the greasers.
- Generic Guy: Within the prep clique: Chad Morris has no major personality traits not shared by the rest of the clique. His arrogance, snobbery, hatreds for the poor and greasers, and likes and dislikes are pretty standard for a prep.
- 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 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.
- Screw the Money, I Have Rules!: "I can afford to broke the rules. I'm a prep." He tried getting his father to bribe his biology teacher into giving him an A, and offers opponents money to let him win fights.
- Small Annoying Creature: His dog.
- Ungrateful Bastard: After the Enemy Mine mission above,
- Camp Bi: Fashion and grooming obsessed.
- 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 before him. Not that many people would.
- 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: Is hinted to not be opposed to the concept.
- Ambiguously Bi: A couple of Dummied Out lines show Parker getting distressed at someone's relationship with Gord. It's hard to tell without the context of the lines, but one theory is Parker was intended to be bi.
- 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.
- Odd Name Out: Ogilvie is a Scottish last name.
- Our Gnomes Are Weirder: Deleted audio has him being...very fond of a gnome he calls Gnomey, left in tears after its distraction.
- 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.
- 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.
- Hell-Bent for Leather: He (and most of his clique) all wear leather jackets over their school uniforms.
- Love Makes You Dumb: Chapter 3 wouldn't have happened if he didn't act like an idiot over Lola
- My Girl Is Not a Slut: What he so desperately wants to believe about Lola.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
- Hidden Depths: Looks like just another Greaser. Advocates staying in school, and learning a trade even if you do choose higher education as well.
- Enemy Mine: Teams up with Jimmy in "Beach Rumble" to beat up some Preps.
- Heartbroken Badass: He broke up with a girlfriend relatively recently and about half his dialogue is over missing her.
- Pirate: His unique costume.
- Straight Bi: 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.
- Jerk Jock: Not that the others aren't, but Ted is the biggest one.
- Dragon-in-Chief: Subverted (see The Starscream)
- Scary Black Kid: Larger and stronger than everyone else, black... yep, he fits the bill.
- 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.
- Aloof Big Brother: It's implied he is the big brother of Gloria and Lance. If so, he fits this trope.
- 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. Yeah sure Bo, Jimmy is the bully.
- 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.
- 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.
- Funny Foreigner
- 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".
- 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.
- Armored Closet Gay: Every time he makes out with Jimmy, he threatens him if he tells anybody.
- Catch Phrase: "IT'S POUNDCAKE TIME!"
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Possesses the same height and stature as Dan, and the same fighting prowess.
- Unusual Euphemism: A non-double entendre one, he calls bullying and physical beatings "poundcake".
- Wimpification/Flanderization: Well, there's no trope called Gayification, so the slash fandom's tendency to twist canon and selectively omit bits of it to make Kirby gayer is a combination of those two tropes.
- Hidden Depths: Some dialogue of his indicates that, despite his disdain for academics, he can at least still perform half decently at them.
- Wrestler in All of Us: Uses a wrestling stance like Juri and uses pro wrestling moves when he fights. They are sparing 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.
- 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.
- Nerd Glasses: All of the nerds have these.
- Never My Fault: After giving Jimmy the task of sneaking into the girl's dorms and photographing Mandy naked, he blames Jimmy for the resulting attack by the Jocks.
Algernon "Algie" Papadopoulos
- Butt Monkey: He's considered the least popular and most uncool kid in the entire school. Even the Principal 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.
- 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.
- No Indoor Voice: Not as loud as Troy, but most of what he says is in a rather loud tone.
- Just Friends: Beatrice is oblivious to his obvious feelings for her.
- 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
- 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 who he hates.
- Insufferable Genius: He loves to call people idiots and put up his own intelligence while denigrating other peoples.
- 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.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: He calls himself Fatty, even. (A beta version of the character was named Francois).
- Gonk: Of a subtype called The Fat Guy with the Big Lips and Pimply Nose. His beta version was even worse - Francois was fatter than Fatty and didn't have his pants pulled up.
- Badass Bookworm
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Worthy Opponent: Considered this by the other cliques.
- Ambiguously Asian-ish: Black hair and an Asian last name, but no trace of an accent and only one dialogue reference of anything Asian-ish.
- Meganekko: Angie wears glasses and she's usually one of the nicest girls on campus.
- The Chew Toy: Everything that can go wrong for Constantinos does.
- Asshole Victim: But he's such a jerk - sullen and unpleasant at best, and a bully and kleptomaniac at worst - that you're more likely to have a laugh at his expense than sympathize with him.
- The Eeyore
- Sitcom Archnemesis: From his pathetically jerkish attitude, to the number of times you have to beat him up in the story and side missions, Constantinos was pretty much designed for this role!
- Small Role, Big Impact: Although Constantinos isn't tied to any cliques, and ultimately doesn't play a major role in the battle between Jimmy and Gary, he does make quite a few prominent appearances in the story; the first being when he steals Eunice's chocolates in one of the first missions, causing Jimmy to go after him to take the chocolates back. He also appears as the subject of "tutorials" for how to use Taunts learned from English Class (where he tries to pick a fight with Jimmy, only for Jimmy to tell him to shove off), and appears as the Bullworth Mascot during Chapter 4 (where Jimmy eventually needs to mug him for the Mascot Outfit)
- Sticky Fingers: Steals chocolates from Eunice early on. Later steals some comic books from the comic book store.
- 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?"
- Fat Girl: The only one in school, no less.
- Gonk: Not only is she fat, but she was given an unflattering hairstyle and a very husky, stupid-sounding voice.
- 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
- 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.
Pedro de la Hoya
- Hero-Worshipper: He looks up to Jimmy to the point of calling him "Sir".
- Momma's Boy: Maybe not to the extent of Algie, but he's close.
- Nerd: Subverted. Trevor's humorless and hyper-focused on academic success, but he follows the social norms that the nerds don't.
- Only Sane Man: Views himself as this.
- Ambiguously Brown: His skin tone and clothing style are both Hispanic, but his name (and accent) is anything but.
- Though purely speculative, the dark features and American accent/name means he's more likely mixed with black and white.
- 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.
Clint (aka Henry)
- Amusing Injuries: He claims to have broken his collarbone three times, and he likes having scars because "chicks dig them".
- Straight Bi: 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.
- 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.
- Napoleon Complex: A mild one; he's one of the smallest townies but calls everyone "kid."
- 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 a sadistic bully that would rather abuse his authority and pick on someone innocent.
- Jerk Ass: Constantly threatening students with beatings, and really seems to enjoy it to boot.
- Large Ham: EEEEEEEEVILDOER!
- Large Ham: Good Lord! I appear to have been knocked over!
- 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.
- 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.
- Upper-Class Twit: Considering his ridiculously classy name (and the fact he often talks about getting another job after being a Prefect), Edward's just using his position to pad out his resume.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty: Appears to be an in-training version of this. His style of prefecting 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."
- 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).
- Sadist Teacher: Doesn't think corporal punishment in school is adequate - he wants capital punishment.
- Adventurer Archaeologist: Either was this or wanted to be this.
- British Accents: He has quite the jolly one.
- Cool Teacher
- Good Is Boring: Is one of the most supportive and friendly teachers on campus, is genuinely dedicated to his job and passionate about geography, and never abuses his power or is shown to have any real flaws that impact his job. Has a very minute role, his VA is not credited, and the fandom often forgets he exists.
- Nice Guy
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
Residents of Bullworth
- 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, 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
