- Voiced by: Gerry Rosenthal
- Abusive Parents: His parents are divorced; his biological father is out of the picture, and his mother is too selfish to raise him properly. As she dumps him at random schools so he can be their problem instead. His stepfathers don't really treat him as a son, as they only see him as a package deal for being with his mom. Jimmy also fails to bond with his stepfathers because he's been left jaded by these previous relationships and because he sees himself as a package deal as well.
- Action Genre Hero Guy: Jimmy hits almost every beat.
- Anti-Hero: Jimmy isn't 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.
- Bald of Awesome: Jimmy, in addition to being the protagonist and the toughest kid on campus, has the option of shaving his head entirely. His usual hairstyle is actually a buzzcut, one that he likely received in military school. However, it's hard to tell if that is his preferred hairstyle or his hair was just growing back after being shaved.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: He fights with his fists only and no techniques when he comes into Bullworth. At the end of the game, he learns military style fighting, kicks, roundhouse kicks, leg sweeps, grapples, two nasty Groin Attack moves, headbutts, etc.
- Big Man on Campus: Officially elevated to this in the penultimate chapter and again at the end of the game: schmoozing with the ladies, surrounded by an entourage, and letting loose a few Tom Cruise gestures because he's just that awesome.
- Boisterous Bruiser: Especially when he's done kicking any chapter bosses' asses. He even forces them to say who's the boss, and if you didn't know who, it's Jimmy Hopkins.Jimmy: Who won?! Me! Jimmy Hopkins! That's who! Who won?!
Jimmy: Who?! (Chokes)
Hal: Jimmy. Hopkins.
- Book Dumb: Downplayed, but it's implied that he's canonically not known well for his academic prowess. Miss Peters, the music teacher, blackmails him into starring in the school play by not assigning him another F in her class. He also doesn't know what a "sociopath" or "hermaphrodite" are. You can avert this in normal gameplay.
- Brats with Slingshots: He steals one from Davis in "The Setup" after he was shot by Davis with it. Jimmy later earns an upgraded wrist rocket (a metal slingshot with a wrist wrap and scope) in "The Candidate".
- Break the Haughty: Loves doing this. He grabs Derby by the hair and forces him to say Jimmy's name, chokes Hal and makes him do the same thing and throws him onto the hard concrete when he does, and yells and brags at the knocked out bodies of the school Football team after a hard ass kicking. But then Jimmy's haughtiness breaks when the school's many subcultures and factions turn on him.
- Brilliant, but Lazy: For all his past delinquent actions and all the various ways he can get in trouble during the game, Jimmy is also more then capable of passing, even excelling in all of his classes.
- Bruiser with a Soft Center: Jimmy is no stranger to combat and will jump into the fight when someone attacks him. However, it's suggested that his combative nature is a product of his home life as he has never had a healthy relationship with a paternal figure. His mother is also too self-absorbed to put his needs above her own and, rather than try to resolve his issues, she dumps him at a school so he can be someone else's problem. When Petey manages to get through to his softer side, Jimmy is revealed to be a loyal friend who, while not above violence, uses his fists to stand up for the little guy.
- 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 a 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 teacher, however.)
- The Cassandra: Jimmy totally lacks Gary's incredible gift of being able to get others to listen through words alone. Almost every attempt he makes to solve issues with others through talking ends in a fight.
- 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.
- Cool Board: He gets a skate board as a Thank-You present from Bucky in "Defend Bucky". And he's the only one to use a skateboard in the whole town.
- 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.
- Defrosting Ice King: He grows from an aggressive outcast who openly distrusts others, to the popular kid who helps the helpless when they are beaten down or abused.
- 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".Jimmy: This is America! We go in there with threats and bribes until we get what we want. If all else fails, we beat the crap out of everyone!
- Establishing Character Moment: Insults and disrespects his stepdad, a person with a position with authority over Jimmy. However, then he displays anger and sadness for his mom's choice of a new husband, making it clear he loves her and that in spite of his anti-authority attitude he's a Jerk with a Heart of Gold.
- Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: He doesn't insult his mom in the car ride to school in the introduction, just his new stepdad. He tackles Gary to kick-off the final boss fight, all because of what Gary said.Gary: (After listening to Jimmy's Kirk Summation) Well, at least MY mom doesn't make her living on her back!
Jimmy: YOU'RE DEAD!!! (Tackles Gary right off the roof)
- Everyone Has Standards: He's a brute who has been expelled by 7 different schools but he makes it clear that he's appalled by Bullworth's internal conflict and bullying.
- Expelled from Every Other School: He has been expelled from multiple other schools, and if he gets kicked out of Bullworth Academy he's destined for either Military School or prison.
- Expy: He can be seen as a milder, teenage version of Claude from Grand Theft Auto III, being a rough and tough protagonist who has to fight and betray his way through many factions in a town/city.
- 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 Blindness: 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.
- Hard Head: See Made of Iron below, an example of how hardheaded this hard head is would be baseball bats breaking over his skull and he doesn't even blink, and bricks thrown at his head break on contact. That's not possible of a human, let alone a 15 year old kid.
- 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.
- Hot-Blooded: Seen as this in cutscenes, but the only time he does impulsively attack in a cutscene, it's when his mom gets insulted.
- Idle Animation: Stands around and talks to himself when left around too long, he wonders how his mom is doing, he decides if school rumors are true or not, he wonders why he's standing around, etc.
- 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 divorcee.
- 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.
- Kavorka Man: He's not considered good lookingZoe even makes fun of him for being short and having no fashion sense. But he gets with every hot girl at the school.
- Kirk Summation: He delivers one to Gary before their final battle.
- Jimmy: Oh, Congratulations! You're smarter than me! You hate everyone and everyone hates you! Genius!
- Knight in Sour Armor: He shows utter disrespect to pretty much 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.
- Kryptonite Factor: Almost nothing fazes Jimmy but chemical warfare. He easily shrugs off physical damage, but reacts badly to stink bombs, fire extinguisher gas, and weed killer. But those are pretty mild compared to the fast-acting sedatives that the asylum orderlies use when busting him.
- Lightning Bruiser: He's probably the second or third fastest kid in Bullworth, but he can outrun basically anyone in the game on foot and not run out of breath. For reference, even authority figures (who otherwise have large health bars) will have to stop frequently during chases to catch a breath.
- Made of Iron: Tanks hits from basically a young Andre the Giant, gets up from a sledgehammer swing that sends him flying through boards of wood, takes massive hits from a prized champion boxer, baseball bats break over his head, takes pot shots from a rapid fire potato launcher, gets a nasty Haymaker to the face and drops onto solid concrete, bricks thrown at his head break on contact, gets up from a hard Groin Attack from a musclebound bully, steel pipes dent when it hits him, could survive falling of a long ladder when a wheelbarrow full of cinderblocks thrown at his head, and in the climax, he crashes through multiple boards of wood and falls into a glass skylight, the villain is knocked out from the injury, but Jimmy gets up without staggering, safe to say the visible scars on Jimmy's head must've been from chainsaws because Jimmy is that tough. It's also worth remembering that he's a short 15 year old boy with an average build.
- 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!"
- Martial Pacifist: Downplayed as his favorite solutions are violence, but he's willing to do tasks for people if it means it won't cause more hostility and problems. He steals bikes for Clint/Henry so he won't fight Jimmy, and he finds who stole the Preps' boxing trophies if it means that they won't fight the Greasers again.
- Mistaken for Gay: Pinky mentions rumors that Jimmy is confused about his sexuality, which Jimmy takes offense at.
- Motive Decay: At first, he's only fighting off other people because they leave him no choice and it's the only way he can get them to stop bothering him. Eventually, he becomes determined to keep the sadistic kids of Bullworth in line, including Gary, by beating them up and forcing them to unite under his watch. Then, when he topples every school clique, he simply lives the high life of popularity and forgets about Gary. He reverts to the second plan when things go south and he seeks to set things right.
- 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.
- No Historical Figures Were Harmed: Jimmy shares a lot of similarities to Julius Caesar;
- Both were bald men who rose to power without parental influence (Jimmy's dad is no longer in the picture, while Caesar's dad was never consul so Caesar had no inherited excellence). Both Caesar and Jimmy joined 2 other allies and formed The Triumvirate so they could build nobility and rise to power. Before rising to power, both the Roman Republic and Bullworth academy were plagued by a ruling body who were divisive and eventually factional, causing multiple civil wars. In bullworth, there are 5 cliques who are at each other's throats and fights are a common sight.
- The Triumvirate was formed around favours; the friends of Caesar helped him become consul and Caesar would help them in turn by passing any law they wished. In the game, Jimmy was helped by Gary who encouraged Jimmy to help the nerds and take on the bullies. Gary was the one who encouraged Jimmy to join him in become the ruler of the school. After the fight against Russell, Petey takes over and directs Jimmy on how to fight the cliques.
- Both Jimmy and Caesar attacked their first tribe because they were a threat to their allies (Jimmy fought the bullies first because they were antagonising him and the nerds. While Caesar attacked the Helvetians because he believed they were attacking an ally of Rome).
- Both fought enemies to the north and were ambushed by a different tribe a year later, (Jimmy fought the preppies in Old Bullworth Vale, which is in the north-west of the academy and was eventually ambushed in the junkyard by the greasers). Due to his family wealth, Jimmy was put against the preppies because they believed themselves to be superior to him due to their inherited wealth and they start talking badly of him when he starts interacting with the Greasers, their rivals and from a poorer part of Bullworth. Caesar had no inherited wealth, and the triumvirate allowed Caesar to have the wealth to become consul. When his consul expired, his allies started turning against him and he became general to maintain his imperium, as well as, become governor of a providence and take command of a few legions.
- Both had to turn against their allies under the excuse of a revolution and took the emblem of a bull afterwards (Caesar claimed the Veneti tribe revolted and he conquered it. During Caesar's reign, the Legio X Equestris was formed and they adopted the bull as their emblem. Jimmy had to fight the nerds after they severed their allegiance to him and he helped them fight the jocks by disguising himself as the academy's bull mascot.
- When both became leaders, they were betrayed by a friend and forced to fight over leadership which caused a civil war when they returned, whereupon the traitor retreated to another country after losing the battle.
- Like Gary, Pompeius acted from the sidelines and renounced the protagonist's leadership during a campaign. Gary used the Townies to create dissonance between Jimmy and the other cliques while Jimmy was away tagging the town hall. Meanwhile, Pompeius resinded Caesar's governorship while the latter was away from Rome.
- After defeating the jocks, Jimmy became king but was set up by the townies and expelled. Gary took over and caused a civil war, forcing Jimmy to return with the Townies and he gets Gary expelled after trying to understand why he would betray him. Gary was then presumably dumped with the vengeful Townies, after that, Jimmy became the king of the school and presumably began an official relationship with Zoe, a Townie.
- Caesar's closest ally, Pompeius, betrayed him and tried to become leader by rescinding Caesar's governorship of Gall. Pompeius and Caesar contended for the leadership of Rome, causing a civil war when Caesar returned to Rome with his 13th legion. Pompeius retreated to Greece and soon lost the battle of Pharsalus. After this, Pompeius retreated to Egypt for sanctuary from Caesar by seeking refuge with Ptolemy XIII Theos Philopator but was promptly beheaded instead. Caesar was horrified by this because he wanted to spare Pompeius' life and he returned to Rome as it's dictator after forming an alliance with Cleopatra of Egypt.
- Not So Above It All: While he hates bullying, and he fights to stop it, he seems to enjoy bullying people when they're low on health, giving wedgies, pinching girl's asses, giving swirlies and threatening people. The only difference between his bullying and the students of Bullworth's bullying is he enjoys bullying anyone, while the students enjoy bulling people weaker than them.
- Odd Friendship: Despite Pete typically being the type of boy that the students at Bullworth 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.
- Offing the Mouth: Downplayed as he doesn't get killed for his snark, but it lands him in trouble. He almost gets thrashed by Johnny Vincent on the spot for a comment, his cute little one liner gets turned into a Pre Ass Kicking One Liner by Norton, and his words make Headmaster Crabblesnitch hate him more.
- One-Man Army: Throughout the course of the story, he manages to beat up a man twice his size in Russell, as well as trained boxers (sometimes several at the same time), the entire football team, a well-armed militia of nerds wielding potato guns and firecrackers, a violent Scary Black Man attacking him with a sledgehammer, and a psycho wielding a steel pipe, all by himself. Safe to say it would take a freight train to stop Jimmy Hopkins.
- Only Sane Man: Well, he, Pete, and Zoe share this. Still, Jimmy deserves special mention, as his scathing sarcasm at everybody else's insanity/stupidity flies completely over their heads.
- Parental Neglect: His father is out of the picture and his mom is too busy dating to give Jimmy any attention. Jimmy had to learn how to fight and defend himself in response. Due to Jimmy's behaviour, he frequently gets expelled and he is eventually sent to Bullworth.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: His height is no disadvantage to him in a fight. Jimmy can take on a whole clique in a fist fight single-handed and win.
- 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.
- Reality Ensues: In "The Rumble" Jimmy surprises Johnny Vincent by telling him that Lola wasn't worth fighting for and that he can "keep that slut for yourself". Lola had been leading Jimmy and many other boys astray and revels in the attention. He knows, for a fact, that she'll be ungrateful and disloyal, even after he fought two factions for her. She really isn't worth the trouble she causes.
- "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!
- Sociopathic Hero: Commented on primarily by Pete, it isn't obvious until Jimmy mistakes a request to kill a houseplant with killing Derby instead. And though his tone of voice makes it ambiguous whether he was going to actually do it, he doesn't even question the request until he's corrected.
- The Stoic: He rarely smiles, and even at his angriest, his voice is rather muted. However, he acts like a Boisterous Bruiser Large Ham once he's done kicking someone's ass, besides that, 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, and even she has an inch or two on Jimmy.
- Tiny Schoolboy: The third shortest student in the entire school, just ahead of Pete and the little kids.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Soda, and it's the only consumable that Jimmy comments on (he never says anything when eating apples or bananas). Jimmy even knows it's unhealthy for him but drinks it anyway. The game also encourages the player to chug them, with rewards given for buying 100 and 500 sodas. All his save zones have soda machines in them too, and the nerd hangout has always has a lone soda consumable for Jimmy to drink near his bed. He even steals soda off people he knocks out, the only other thing he steals off people is small weapons.
- Unwitting Pawn: Gary builds him up as the school hero, only to muddy his reputation in the penultimate chapter. Then Jimmy rebuilds his reputation by doing good deeds like putting out a gym fire, and rescuing mostly innocent men/boys from an asylum. When it still doesn't work, Jimmy just does it the old fashioned way and beat everyone, including Gary, back into knowing who's boss.
- Working-Class Hero: Jimmy shows traits of an apolitical Skinhead, that being he's got a buzzcut and comes from a working-class family. Jimmy had to look after himself after his father abandoned him and rebellious behaviour has gotten him expelled from several schools.
- Voiced by: Peter Vack
- 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 thought to be 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 who's apparently been off of his meds. He mentions that his problem is "ADD, primarily." He fits the criteria for Antisocial Personality Disorder too, 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 (if condescending but that's the Bullworth's friendliness), 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 are 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, 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! HA HAAAAAHH!!"
- False Friend: To both Jimmy and Pete, as Jimmy is just another pawn to him and Pete is just his punching bag.
- Fatal Flaw: Pride. The smug bastard just can't stop bragging, and he takes genuine offense when Jimmy calls him "boring."
- Final Boss: He's the last boss fought in the game.
- Fisher King: When he does take over the school, a storm takes over and disappears once Jimmy emerges victorious from the fight.
- 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.
- Some dialogue also indicates Gary's father wound up going to prison, which likely meant he didn't come from a well-adjusted home either.
- Parodied by himself, where he casually lists off all his potential excuses, each more ridiculous than the last, in a cheery tone people would use to rattle off academic credentials, when Jimmy asks him "What's your problem?"
- Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: Gary's backstory is pieced together through various voicelines and it's said that Gary came from a broken home, like Jimmy. Gary's father had an unhappy marriage with his wife and is currently in prison while Gary's mother dumped him at Bullworth as soon as he came of age. In Total Mayhem, Gary loudly brags about bullying students so badly that they wound up in therapy, got other students expelled, tied up the headmaster, and how he turned the school into a battleground. After bragging about he enjoys being in control and getting people to do what he wants, Jimmy proclaims that he didn't do anything to Gary to warrant this betrayal and expulsion but Gary ignores him and believes Jimmy would have betrayed him if the opportunity ever came up. Jimmy, finally realising his former friend was a psycho who had always intended to hurt and betray him, attacks him after Gary insults his mother.
- Hate Sink: There is nothing remotely likeable about this manipulative and sociopathic bastard.
- 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 he carries 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 listen 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 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.
- Insufferable Genius: He's the egotistical douchebag that loves to brag his intelligence.
- 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."
- Jerkass: He's a selfish, arrogant, manipulative and sociopathic narcissist that gets on everyone's nerves.
- 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) andmore likelyliving 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 you, provided you actually let him land attacks on you.
- Misanthrope Supreme: Among his pet, the people he 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.
- Near-Villain Victory: He does succeed in taking over the school and gets Jimmy expelled, but he didn't expect Jimmy to form an alliance with the Townies or care enough to retake the school and have revenge.
- 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.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: His brown eyes border on the color of being red, which is fitting, considering his status as the main villain.
- 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 genius Chessmaster but too arrogant to pull it off" version of a Smug Snakealthough 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.
- Stupid Evil: His ultimate plan to take over the school results in a mass riot, the teachers abandoning the school and the headmaster being knocked out and tied up. Gary's plan would never last; the police will eventually break down the gates and restore order, Crabblesnitch would figure out who knocked him out, and the cliques would eventually wise up to his behaviour and punish him for pitting them against each other.
- "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 Didn'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.
- Your Mom: The last mistake he makes before Jimmy kicks his ass is insulting Jimmy's mother.
- Voiced by: Matt Bush
The less action-oriented of the trio, he's a smart but quiet boy who puts Jimmy's aggression to their advantage.
- 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.
- Custom Uniform: Wears the same blue and gold Bullworth vest that Jimmy has, and wears a pink shirt underneath.
- 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*
- The Lancer: The Non-Action Guy with a strong moral center and aversion to violence to Jimmy's easily-influenced Blood Knight Anti-Hero.
- 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".
- Nerdy Inhaler: "Oh man, I gotta get checked out for my asthma..."
- 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.
As A Whole
- Always a Bigger Fish: They're just gang of friends who attack Jimmy for being a newcomer. Once they're out of the way, the rest of the cliques become Jimmy's problem. Unlike the rest of the cliques, the bullies don't abandon Jimmy once Gary takes control.
- Bandit Clan: They're not part of the pecking order and don't care for it. They just fight anyone weaker than themselves. However, they are, at least, above the Nerds in the pecking order.
- Barbaric Bully: Their bullying extends further than just humiliation, taunting and fighting. They carry out complex plans for their harassment, mostly in Davis' case.
- Batter Up!: They wield wooden baseball bats in a couple missions and occasionally in free roam.
- Blood Knight: They revel in violence.
- Boisterous Weakling: Many of them have rather enthusiastic trash-talking dialogue in a fight, but they're terrible fighters who usually lose the fights they pick with the upper cliques.
- Book Dumb: Plenty of them mention struggling in school and spend more time harassing others and getting into fights.
- The Bully: Obviously, they are the first gang who fight Jimmy for being a new kid.
- Bully Brutality: According to the stories around the school, the worst being Russell smashing a science project on Donald's head.
- Carry a Big Stick: They'll occasionally spawn carrying wooden planks as weapons.
- Custom Uniform: Russel and his clique wear the normal Bullworth uniform without a sweater, jeans, skater shoes and untucked shirts. During the winter, most of them leave the shirts unbuttoned with skullies and hoodies underneath.
- Fearless Fool: They're more aggressive when met at the parking lot, which means they're more willing to start fights with any other student even if they're from the stronger cliques.
- Home Base: The Boys' dorm, the school parking lot, and off campus, the In-N-Out Motel.
- The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: More like "The First of These" as they're the first clique Jimmy faces, but it still counts. Out of all of the cliques, they fit the format the least, as they have no dodgeball team, no exclusive female character, no exclusive challenge to unlock more turf, seemingly nobody that can be seen as second-in-command, and they don't respect the campus' social hierarchy. Gary doesn't even name them, and they're more like a scrappy gang that follows Russell because of his strength.
- Leitmotif: Fast, intense breakbeat with a prominent bass guitar riff and a lot of percussive samples.
- Light Is Not Good: A group of violent bullies identified by their white Bullworth shirts.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: They're not effective fighters and only go after people weaker than themselves. However, there are a number of stories from students describing Bully Brutality that members other than Russell have pulled. They also have access to Jimmy's tackled-grapple spitting finisher, which instantly knocks out any student, and the only reason that they don't use it is because of a programming oversight, though this wasn't the case with early PS2 copies.
- Not Worth Killing: Nobody really bothers with the bullies, presumably because the overall group doesn't care for the clique pecking order anyway, are generally weak, Russell outclasses them, or some combination.
- Reformed Bully: Subverted as they remain loyal to Jimmy but they happily bully everyone else.
- Starter Villains: As the first clique to harass Jimmy, they're collectively the primary antagonists of the first chapter. Russell himself doesn't count since he never actually leads the Bullies but he still ends up having to be dealt with in before the Bullies relent.
- Undying Loyalty: They're the first group Jimmy wins over and are the only ones to remain friends with him after his fall from grace.
- Wimp Fight: The Bullies' modus operandi is harassing those weaker than themselves to feel better. They weren't expecting nor made for fighting, so fittingly, their combat skills boil down to flailing fists and kicks at the opponent. Russell makes up for it with pure strength.
- Would Hit a Girl: Subverted, they're happy to bully girls but they won't fight them.
- Voiced by: Cody Melton
- Badass Biker: Russell steals a police motorcycle some time 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: 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 free roam 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 literally hard head comes in handy for breaking down Bullworth's gate in the finale.
- Damage-Sponge Boss: At 800 HP, he is the toughest character in the entire game at least when encountered in the overworld. He actually has less health (650 HP) during his boss fight but that's still considerably greater than any of the adults or other clique leaders who max out at 500 HP.
- 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."GET OFF MY LITTLE BUDDY! RAWR!"
- Disc-One Nuke: Can be hired as a bodyguard for just a dollar as early as Chapter 2, and no student in the school is even a threat to him in a fight. Not that Jimmy needs it.
- The Dreaded: He's a force of nature on campus with even the prefects being afraid of him.
- 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 can lift a full grown man with one hand and ram the front gates of Bullworth Academy open with his head. But he's evidently got an intellectual disability of some sort.
- 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. ("Russell likes to hurt people! For peace!") Note also Russell's color scheme: a mop of red hair, white polo shirt, and blue jeans.
- HeelFace 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.
- Hidden Depths: He resides in Old Bullworth Vale, the rich preppy neighborhood, implying his family is rather wealthy. He also notes that he's a bit of a warrior poet underneath his bulk and sadistic streak.
- 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.
- Screaming Warrior: He bellows his insults and threats during a fight against him. It's best seen with his boss battle.
- 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.
- Tattooed Crook: He has an unidentifiable tattoo on his upper left arm which can't be fully seen. Only the bottom half of the tattoo can be seen under his sleeve and might be an animal tattoo such as a wolf.
- 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.
- Younger Than They Look: His size, muscles, tattoo, and facial features makes him look older than a teenager. However, he could have held back a year due to his learning difficulties so he might actually be slightly older.
- Voiced by: Geoff Wigdor
- 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.
- Cold Sniper: His boss fight has him shooting you with a slingshot while perched on top of a makeshift platform made out of wood and barrels.
- The Dreaded: Is apparently this to the freshmen.
- Elite Mook: Somewhat. He has his own fighting style but it's mainly used for the missions where he has to be chased down. If actually fought with this style using mods, it shows that he has more control over the Bullies' "technique," such as only throwing one punch, running as fast as Jimmy can and never running out of stamina.
- 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.
- Hypocrite: As one of the holders of Melvin's character sheets, he runs the second Jimmy gets close and wants them back, dropping marbles in his path to lose him. Shoot him with a slingshot, and he starts complaining about "unfair fighting."
- Noodle Implements: He makes specific schemes for his bullying when heard speaking in freeroam.Davis: All I need now is a bottle rocket and the plans will be all set!Davis: ...and then I have to give him a wedgie...
- Sour Outside, Sad Inside: He's one of the most ruthless on campus bullies but he's implied to suffer emotional problems. He admits during free roam that he sometimes bursts into tears and can't stop crying.
- Teacher's Pet: What he accuses Jimmy of being to Dr. Crabblesnitch.
- Warmup Boss: The first real boss fight, complete with a special titled health bar. He's mostly there to help you learn how to fight enemies from a distance and defeating him nets you a slingshot.
- Voiced by: Unknown
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Subverted. He's not even that great of a fighter, but he certainly acts like he is. Just like the other bullies, his "martial arts skills" boil down to flailing his limbs wildly in the direction of his opponent.Ethan: Last night, I dreamed I took out a whole army with my new Frog Style! I made it up, but I was a warrior, man!
- Black and Nerdy: Subverted. His obsession with ninjas, asian martial arts, and martial art movies are all stereotypically nerdy, but he he is more of a bully than a nerd.
- Chewing the Scenery: Just TRY and find a single line of dialogue where Ethan ISN'T talking like THIS! It can't be done! (Actually there are a few, but with the possible exception of Seth and Russell he's the hammiest character in the game)
- Gratuitous Ninja: Evidently not gratuitous to Ethan. Not by a long shot. It's a sad world when people don't believe in Ninjas.
- Obliviously Evil: Seems convinced that he's the protagonist in some kind of martial arts action movie rather than just another bully in a clique of them.
- Occidental Otaku: Has a fascination with ninjas, Asian fighting styles like jujitsu, and Asian movies.
- Voiced by: Connor Paolo
- Anti-Villain: Despite being one of the Bullies, he's implied to not enjoy harassing weaker students as much as the others in his clique. If you bully him, he sometimes notes that he had it coming. It doesn't show much though since he has such a small role in the story.
- Badass Biker: Only according to him. If you pull off a successful bike trick near him, he'll comment that you've probably been taking his lessons.
- Brooklyn Rage: Has this accent and is part of the aggressive Bullies clique.
- Shout-Out: He hates shoes and thinks he's smarter or more clever than he really is, just like another more famous Tom.
- Hidden Depths: He's disgusted with the way people take advantage of others. It's also implied that he only hangs out with the Bullies because they're his friends.
- The Paranoiac: He seems to have trust issues, believing that everyone's out to get him and that there's some bigger scheme going on in the world.
- Scars Are Forever: His most distinguishing characteristic is his apparently permanent black right eye with a little scar above on his eyebrow.
- 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. On the other hand, he's the only Bully without any pre-programmed behavior during the introductory mission, and as such the only one capable of randomly spawning. So, if you wander around campus during it instead of chasing your destination, you'll see a lot of Tom.
- Voiced by: Jaime McAdams
- Closet Geek: He wants to become an actor, is in the Theatre Club and has a line that implies he reads Manga.
- 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!"
- Voiced by: Evan Weinstein
- Ambiguously Gay: Zig-zagged. He has a few dialogue lines 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. To add to the confusion, he's not the kissable guy of his cliqueTrent is.
- 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.
- Super Serum: One of his voicelines indicates that he takes (at least what he thinks are) steroids. Considering how he's still rather weak and thinks that they aren't working, this is pretty much subverted.
- Voiced by: Matt Monroe
- Abusive Parents: Of the neglectful variety, mostly with his father being a serious alcoholic. He also thinks this of his mom just for making him do homework.
- Brats with Slingshots: The only Bully aside from Davis to carry a slingshot.
- BrotherSister Incest: Not intended, but he can sometimes be seen making out with Christy (who's widely thought by fans to be his sister). 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.
- Hot-Blooded: Delivers his lines with a lot of energy and vitriol.
- Screaming Warrior: Thanks to the loud deliveries of his lines.
- Warmup Boss: The first mandatory fight where you're introduced to the basic melee mechanics of the game.
Jimmy: Yeah, massively inbred, and completely brainless.
Gary: Very observant, Jimmy-boy.
As A Whole
- Abusive Parents: Played for Laughs, most preps have dialogue that their parent's are abusive, like Tad who tried giving his father a cake and got stabbed with a pitchfork in return.
- Arch-Enemy: The Greasers go toe to toe with them, they have a large "rumble" at the end of chapter 3 after Lola manipulates them for her amusement.
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Some preps have this taunt during fights, reminding you that they box, like "I Know Jujitsu Punk", or "I'm A great boxer you know".
- Batter Up!: They wield cricket bats on occasion, mainly in their chapter's final mission, "Dishonorable Fight."
- The Beautiful Elite: They try their best to cultivate this, but they come across as the Jerkass variant. Playing up their physical features and chasing after the best fashion (Aquaberry-brand clothes in this case), their members all come from rich families.
- Boxing Battler: 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. The Leader and The Dragon are also immune to grapples, which fits with it being illegal in boxing.
- Blue Blood: What many of these rich kids fashion themselves as, though Derby calls the most attention to it.
- The Boxing Episode: Their clique challenge to unlock their hideout, where Jimmy enters a tournament with $1,000,000 as the prize and gets the Beach House instead due to not having family members in any of the Preps' organization.
- Break the Haughty: Beating them, bullying them, or giving them a swirly damages their their ego, and they have a more sorrowful tone in their dialogue when they receive any of the 3.
- The Computer Shall Taunt You: Preps like Chad mock you if they manage to knock you to the ground.
- Custom Uniform: Derby and the other preppies wear the fancier Aquaberry vests over their normal uniforms. During the winter, some of them wear striped scarves and wear sweaters instead of vests.
- Extremity Extremist: All but a few fight only with fists, the few who avert this throws eggs, grapples, or has a single kick move.
- Flash Step: Thanks to their boxing skills, their footwork has them perform this to dodge attacks.
- Force and Finesse: The Finesse to the Greasers' Force. They use careful boxing techniques to dodge and weave, whittling the opponent down, while Greasers have a more straightforward street-fighting style.
- Hidden Badass: "Upper-Class Twit" does not mean weak or stupid. They're actually some of the most skilled fighters at Bullworth, even if they're not as strong as the Bullies or Jocks.
- Home Base: Harrington House on campus and Old Bullworth Vale off it. There's also the boxing gym and the old abandoned Beach House they give Jimmy after he wins the boxing tournament.
- Inbred and Evil: Played for Laughs and zigzagged with the preps , while they look pretty, educated, physically fit and could walk and talk normally, some of them have small defects, like Tad who has a webbed foot.
- Incest Is Relative: Family tradition among the Old Money families, and a point of contention and insulting from Jimmy.
- Jerkass: They all are, the best example is when Derby and Bif disbelieve Jimmy when the Townies stole and burnt their boxing trophies despite the photos.
- Kissing Cousins: What their families encourage as tradition.
- Leitmotif: Has a jazz-organ New Wave remix of "Billie Jean's" instrumentals by Michael Jackson.
- Luxurious Liquor: Some Preps drink even though they are below the drinking age, their old lighthouse clubhouse and boxing gym office has a bar with liquor bottles scattered everywhere, and in the Chapter 2 boss fight the leader has a drink while his goons do his dirty work. They also planned to egg Mr. Hattrick's house for not allowing Galloway to have a drink.
- Nouveau Riche: Some of the members will come from self-made wealthy families and happily tell people that they're either this or Old Money.
- Old Money: Plenty of them come from families that have held a stake in Bullworth and business for generations, and they'll be very happy to remind anyone of this whether they asked or not.
- The Proud Elite: All preps are a part of the upper echelons of society and won't waste a moment in not telling you so, but some can have a bit of kindness hiding underneath their arrogance.
- Preppy Name: Just scroll down and you won't be surprised.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: The Preps often make mention of how they intend on manipulating Bullworth thanks to their families providing the school's financial support. Crabblesnitch speaks highly of them.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Dialogue from them and others will bring up how they've escaped punishment by having their rich families bail them out. Chad offers to pay whoever his opponent happens to be into letting him win their scuffle.
- Upper-Class Twit: All of them will remind Jimmy that they're richer than he is. Derby continues to bring up this distinction even after the end of the storyline.
- Weak, but Skilled: Mostly the case for the less durable members of the Preps, but the group as a whole aren't known for being as tough or hardened like the Greasers, Jocks or Townies but have serious boxing skills that allow them to dodge and counterattack.
- White Anglo-Saxon Protestant: They are another 50's subculture Rockstar put in, they wear polo shirts during gym and sweaters, but instead of putting it around their neck like most examples they just wear sweaters normally.
- Voiced by: John LaVelle
- Abusive Parents: Both implied and directly stated in different contexts. Derby states in one mission that he tried to play innocent when his father caught him with his nanny, which he got a "good thrashing" for. The implied part is that if Derby, a probable minor, was caught with a nanny, it was most likely sexual abuse.
- All Your Powers Combined: His fighting style as a boss incorporates all of the preps' boxing attacks and maneuvers.
- Arch-Enemy: To Johnny.
- Though it's only implied through small talk between the other students. They seldom mention each other in their dialogue, and in their few on-screen appearances together they come across as oddly chummy.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: As leader of the Preps, he has his own fighting style that incorporates all of the types of punches that the clique members can throw, even though he'd prefer the others do the fighting for him.
- Blue Blood: His combat dialogue makes the most references to this.
- Combat by Champion: He outright Defies this, siccing the Preps on Jimmy after he beats Bif fairly in their boxing match.
- Combat Pragmatist: His unique fighting style during his boss fight mixes in illegal boxing moves. Other than that, he also encourages the entire clique to gang up on Jimmy instead of accepting a one-on-one duel, hiding behind the bar's counter and only coming out when he has backup or if the backup suddenly stops. A Dummied Out attack also had him throw bottles from the bar whenever Jimmy is kept at a distance.
- 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.
- 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 [[Spoiler:or if Jimmy barricades the doors]]. He also doesn't ever fight Johnny Vincent directly, preferring to let Bif do his dirty work.
- It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": Despite its spelling, Derby's name is often pronounced "Darby".
- 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.
- Man of Wealth and Taste: All the Preppies fashion themself as this, but Derby's a more notable one from what we see. He's even seen in a smoking jacket at one point.
- 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 (including the clique leaders) and teachers applauding Jimmy, which is very uncharacteristic of him, considering how unpleasant he is to Jimmy during the game. He was probably placed there only because he's a clique leader.
- Out of Focus: Invrted. He's given a few mentions here and there in Chapter 2, but despite the chapter being all about toppling the reputation of the Preppies, he only makes an in-person appearance at the end of it to challenge Jimmy. He has more appearances afterwards.
- 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.I'm leveraging the assets I have and you don't. Friends.
- Smug Snake: He's exceptionally smug. He believes that breeding, nepotism and snobbery are more important than actually being able to fight.
- 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.
- Villain with Good Publicity: Downplayed. Derby, alongside most of the Preppies, are smug, pompous and condescending to anyone who just happens to be on their bad side, a lower-class than them, or are Greasers. The Harringtons are well-known among Bullworth for their wealth and contributions to the academy.
- While Rome Burns: During the penultimate mission "Complete Mayhem", his response to the schoolwide riot is to apparently relax and spectate the chaos from the Harrington House while wearing a smoking jacket.
- Voiced by: Andrew Rannells
- 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 health bar 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.
- Butt-Monkey: Delegated to this in the Prep's final mission "Dishonorable Fight", he gets dethroned as the Boxing Gym Champion by Jimmy Hopkins, loses the boxing bout by knockout, shamed and yelled at by his own clique's leader for losing and just stays knocked out throughout the rest of the mission. He's even specially programmed to be seen still out cold in the ring, from the bar upstairs.
- 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.
- The Juggernaut: He can take and dish out lots of damage, which is probably why he's the Boxing Gym Champion, he's better than the other token big guys in the other cliques bar Russell, Bif can block and dodge unlike Damon and is more durable than Norton.
- Lightning Bruiser: He's a got a huge health bar 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.
- Nerf: While he's usually one of the toughest students in the entire game, the boxing fight against him is no more difficult than any of the other Preppies.
- Punny Name: His name "Bif" sounds similar to Biff, a stock sound effect for punching something.
- Undying Loyalty: To Derby.
- Voiced by: Kaija Matiss
- Alpha Bitch: Not as much as Mandy, but still...
- Ambiguous Disorder: Her frequent mood swings, conflicting opinions, a few mentions of her being in therapy, and hysterics show hints 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 Preppies' ancestors used to breed "purity" (and they would've pushed for full BrotherSister 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 free-roam 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. She will even be the only one actively rooting for Jimmy in boxing matches against other Preps.
- Spoiled Sweet: Even though she still expects to be treated like a princess, she's not as bad as the other Preppies. She donates old clothes, prefers to date boys of a lower class and dislikes how her father forbids her from socialising with those outside his tax bracket.
- Voiced by: Ben Levin
- Extremity Extremist: An aversion among the Preps, as he uses a knee strike for one of his grapple moves as well as a running kick.
- 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.
- I Know Karate: "I'm trained in Thai boxing!" With the Prep Grappler fighting style incorporating kicks and the use of knees in grapples, he's probably not lying.
- 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.
- Strong as They Need to Be: 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.
- 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 has lost the family fortune and now he has to work his way through Bullworth.
- Voiced by: Brandon Gill
- 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.
- I Know Karate: "I know jiu jitsu, punk!" With the Prep Grappler fighting style incorporating kicks and the use of knees in grapples, he's probably not lying.
- 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.
- Sidekick Creature Nuisance: 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.
Do you even have flushing toilets in your trailer? I couldn't imagine it.
- Voiced by: Andrew Gehling
- 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.
- How Much More Can He Take?: During the boxing minigame.Gord: "It's a wonder Hopkins is still standing!"
- Kissing Cousins: When Johnny accuses him of messing around with the wrong women, he says "cousins are legal", before realizing that Johnny meant Lola.
- 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.'
- Voiced by: Jaesun Celebre
- 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 fights 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 again to egg the Tenements 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 free-roam, although not as commonly as he does with eggs.
- Voiced by: Cory Anker
- Ambiguously Bi: A couple of Dummied Out lines for a beta "Small Offences" show Parker getting distressed at his gnome's relationship with Gord. Since the gnome 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.
- 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. Whenever he does something nice, he immediately goes into damage control. He sometimes gives money to hoboes, 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.
- 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!"
- Voiced by: Baron Vaughn
- 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?
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.
Gary: Don't act dumb. You said his mom is also legally his aunt, and that he probably had webbed toes.
Tad: I don't... Well, only on one foot.
- Domestic Abuse: His dad hits his mother. He's not happy about it.
- Everyone Has Standards: Subverted, he convinces Jimmy to help him egg Mr Hattrick's house for bullying Mr Galloway, stating that Mr Galloway should be allowed to drink if he wants to. However, Tad actually wanted to egg Jimmy instead for alledgedly talking smack about him behind his back.
- Expy: His hairstyle and mannerisms make him resemble an older version of Stingy.
- Fragile Speedster: Has the same fighting style as Gord and goes down just as quickly.
- Honesty Is the Best Policy: As shown under Distinction Without a Difference and Nouveau Riche, Tad is surprisingly truthful when responding to any questions he's asked or to any accusations made against him.
- Jerkass: While every other clique member tells their partners not to worry and comes to their aid when in danger, Tad just scolds his friends for being in need of help.Tad: Do I have to bail you out again?!
- Kissing Cousins: "First cousins is legal, my friend. Legal."
- Lonely Rich Kid: Of the awful family life variety.
- Nouveau Riche: But pretends to be Old Money. He's quite 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.
- The Starscream: Implied to be one of the wealthier Preps and seems to hold some authority over his fellow Preppies, a portion of his dialogue suggests that he's trying to take leadership of the Preppies from Derby. He sometimes talks about trying to dig up dirt on Derby's name and also trying to instigate conflict between Derby and Bif. Not that it ever affects the main story in any way.
- Unknown Rival: Seems to Hold a grudge against Peanut and plots against him. Peanut himself never acknowledges the guy in any of his dialogue so aside from the usual Preppy-Greaser enmity, it's likely a one-sided rivalry.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: He wants to make his overbearing father proud.
- Your Mum: Gary makes the Preps think that Jimmy said this among many other supposed insults, which is Tad's breaking point for them to turn hostile.
Jimmy: Or at least try to look tough.
Gary: Wouldn't advise messing with them. At least not yet.
As A Whole
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: What they believe as a subculture. Their members' success with this varies.
- Arch-Enemy: To the Preps. Chapter 3 ends in the two cliques having a "rumble" so severe that the police gets involved.
- Badass Biker: Zigzagged. They're the clique who's more into biking than any other cliques. They're the only clique seen in the BMX park during free roam, easily defeat the Preps in said BMX park, and in the boss fight Johnny even chooses to duel with Jimmy while riding on a bike, wielding a pipe. But all of them are defeated by Jimmy in the second storyline bike race.
- Badass Driver: Are the Final Boss of the Go-Kart races.
- Bad Guys Play Pool: Downplayed. They're tough guys whose hideout used to be a pool place.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: Notably the only Clique, whose members incorporate kicks in their fighting, and not the sloppy kind like the awkward flailing kicks that the Bullies use.
- Blood Knight: When Johnny pushes around Cornelius in "Wrong Part Of Town", the Greasers cheer him on and they beat up the nerd gleefully when Johnny commands them to. Members tend to have varying degrees of enjoyment from fights.
- Brats with Slingshots: Peanut, Lucky and Ricky fight from a distance when they can with slingshots.
- Brooklyn Rage: They all talk in New York accents and are a tough bunch.
- The Casanova/Casanova Wannabe: They all have dialogue about getting with girls and failing to get with them at times.
- Carry a Big Stick: They'll occasionally spawn carrying wooden planks as weapons.
- Cultured Badass: Ironically they show more knowledge of culture than the Preps, as various members allude to The Illiad, The Outsiders, and possibly West Side Story in their dialogue.
- Custom Uniform: Johnny and his clique all wear the regular uniform (i.e. blue vest over a white shirt), but wear some form of jacket over them. While most of the clique wear leather jackets, Lefty and Lucky wear denim instead.
- Expy: They all love Bikes, are ladykillers, kick ass, and mostly Italian even though 50's era greaser had not just Italian-Americans. Sounds pretty much like the most popular old timey greaser ever, The Fonz.
- Force and Finesse: The Force against the Preps' Finesse. They prefer a rougher street-fight over the more strategic bobbing and weaving that the Preppies do.
- Grease Monkey: The entire Clique hangs around the auto shop and shown to be working on cars in the shop class cutscenes. They show a much more offended tone when you steal their bikes, and they're tough when you compete in bike and go-kart races against them.
- Greaser Delinquents: Duh.
- Hell-Bent for Leather: The clique all wear either black or brown leather jackets over their school uniforms with the exceptions of Lucky and Lefty who wear denim.
- High-Speed Battle: The mission where you have to lure Gord and other Preps to the BMX park leads to everyone duking it out by tossing firecrackers at each other while riding on their bikes. Their bike race mission in the storyline involves Jimmy and the Greasers willing to punch each other off the track. Later, you have to lose the Greasers throwing firecrackers and chasing after Chad and Algie with a slingshot, also on all of your bikes. The final mission of their chapter has you chase after Johnny while getting away from the cops behind you.
- Home Base: The auto shop on campus, New Coventry and the abandoned Tenements off campus. There's also the Blue Balls Pool House that Jimmy fights them for.
- Hot-Blooded: A trait that really separates them with the calmer, cockier Preppies, which shows in cutscenes too. When Jimmy ignores the Prep Gord's offer to box with them, he calmly reacts with a dumbfounded "Okay..." and goes on with his day. When Jimmy turns down Peanut's request for help, he gets angry and threatens Jimmy.
- Informed Attribute: Their 50' gang theme is more a comparison than an intentional theme; the Greasers wear leather jackets, gel their hair, and are fond of vehicles and bikes. Their title as "Greasers" is actually in reference to their excessive use of hair gel and very few of them actually speak like a 50's stereotype. Their style makes them stand out as rebels who don't have a school-related theme (sports, education, wealth, etc.). Plus, if they did dress like modern-day delinquents then they would be either mistaken for Jocks who aren't wearing their uniform or Townies due to their non-standard uniform. Like the other cliques in Bullworth Academy, they are designed to wear their uniform under their leather jackets to prevent any comparisons to the Townies.
- Informed Poverty: They are picked on by the Preps for being broke and they all live and hang out in New Coventry, a ghetto. Despite this, they are still able to attend Bullworth, a private school with tuition fees.
- Kick Them While They Are Down: Or punch them in this case. In fact, the Greasers (excluding Johnny, Hal, and Norton) are the only characters besides Jimmy who will attack enemies knocked down to the ground.
- Legacy Character: Rockstar uses Brooklyn Rage Italian tough guys alot in their games, no matter if their game takes place in A New York, Miami, Los Angeles, New York again, A retconned but still New York and Los Angeles again expies, even in a 50's era New England boarding school they still find ways to fit them in.
- Leitmotif: A 50's style rock'n'roll theme, Fighting Johnny Vincent which plays at the end of chapter 3 is a cover of Jailhouse Rock's instrumentals with a little New Wave mixed in.
- Outdated Outfit: Even with the 50s/60s culture Bully incorporates elements of, the Greaser subculture is apparently outdated with Jimmy even calling the second-in-command, Peanut, a "throwback".
- Pretender Diss: The rougher-edged Townies mock them as such, and this can be considerable given the above Informed Poverty.
- Roundhouse Kick: The group is skillful enough to pull these off, though with how they're animated, they can be seen as sloppily performed.
- Smoking Is Cool: Plenty of them certainly seem to think so. They have a lot of dialogue of them glamorizing it, and some even enjoy secondhand smoke.
- Smoking Is Not Cool: Also extends into this. If you outrun some of them, they may comment on how it's affected their health when they need to catch their breath.
- Token Good Teammate: The clique is actually nice to Jimmy at the beginning of Chapter 3.
- Voiced by: Rocco Rosanio
- Ambiguous Disorder: His personality traits tend to match 8 out of 9 symptoms of borderline personality disorder, as shown by:
- His stormy personality. Calm one moment, angry and paranoid the next.
- His chronic feelings of emptiness and loneliness, as shown by his one-sided relationship with Lola and how he fights Jimmy for abandoning him.
- His intense and highly changeable moods, having frequent mood swings and rallying the greasers to attack Gord for dating Lola behind his back.
- His inappropriate, intense anger or problems controlling anger, mas shown again by how he attacks Gord while also attacking Chad and Algernon.
- His stress-related paranoid thoughts. He rightfully believes that Lola is cheating on him, then attacks Algie and Chad for the same reasons in a fit of paranoia. He briefly gets institutionalized when he attacks the townies for claiming they had went out with Lola.
- His impulsive and often dangerous behaviours such as recklessness. He regularly gets into fights for petty reasons.
- His extreme reactions to abandonment. He's devoted to Lola and fights Jimmy in the final chapter because Johnny believes he abandoned him.
- He has a distorted and unstable self-image or sense of self. He and his faction dress like greasers from the 50s despite the game taking place in the modern day.
- Arch-Enemy: To Derby.
- Though it's only implied through small talk between the other students. They seldom mention each other in their dialogue, and in their few on-screen appearances together they come across as oddly chummyhowever this interaction is only after Jimmy has forcibly united every clique under him.
- All Your Powers Combined: He incorporates all of the Greasers' kicks and punches into his fighting style as a boss.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: As the leader of the Greasers, his fighting style takes all of their punches and kicks on top of having his own unique and unblockable special moves.
- Benevolent Boss: Implied. Tellingly, while Derby sends his goons to do the dirty work while he's hiding behing a bar having a drink in his boss fight, Johnny fights alone while he lets his goons stay "safe" on higher ground throwing stuff at Jimmy. He even praises them after they manage to lure in and throw Jimmy off his bike.
- 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 brief asylum stay during Chapter 5.
- Expy: Of Salvatore Leone from GTA III another Rockstar game, they are both tough older Italian dudes with a hand in authority with a group of other tough Italian dudes (but Salvatore's is an actual Mafia instead of a bunch of Greaser Delinquents), and they both turn on the protagonists because they think that their significant others cheated on them with the player (Sal's didn't, Johnny's did).
- Extremity Extremist: Averted in the game, but uncovered beta animations indicate that originally his fighting style was composed entirely of kicks.
- A Father to His Men: Implied. Some Greasers have dialogue stating pity for Johnny for having a girlfriend who Really Gets Around, and in "Preppies Vandalized" Vance was willing to beat up Jimmy with Norton and Peanut, only to let him go because he rescued Johnny from the asylum.
- Full-Name Basis: Lola and Peanut simply 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.
- Hot-Blooded: He wouldn't be a complete example of Greaser Delinquents if he wasn't
- Hurricane Kick: Dummied Out, but still present in the games files as one of his special moves.
- Just Toying with Them: One of his lines during fighting.
- Love Makes You Crazy: Crazy enough to be considered insane and institutionalized by the local sadistic insane asylum and its orderlies. Apparently he flies off the handle when the Townies claim that they got with Lola.
- Love Makes You Dumb: Chapter 3 wouldn't have happened if he didn't act like an idiot over Lola.
- 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.
- Not Himself: It's implied that Johnny did what he did in Chapter 3 out of rage over his girlfriend cheating on him. Earnest notes that Johnny's been acting crazy lately and he needs to come back to his senses. Johnny even looked pretty calm listening to Ricky and Hal talk in the introductory cutscene in the first mission.
- Not So Above It All: Even though Johnny is willing to fight a whole gang of accomplished boxers because one of them was having a date with his girlfriend, he cheats on her as well.
- Older Than They Look: He appears to be a senior or at least older than a lot of kids in the school. He also refers to Jimmy as kid constantly and calls Gord young.
- Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Uses the term "wankers" even though he's not Cockney British, he's a Brooklyn Rage Italian guy.
- 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 bit.Ain't nobody making a fool of Johnny Vincent!
Oh, you took down Johnny Vincent!
I'M 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.
- Voiced by: Phoebe Strole
- 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 it for a sweater during the winter chapter, though.
- 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.
- Comically Missing the Point: She willingly compares herself to Helen of Troy as if it's something to be proud of despite the two being complete opposites.
- Critical Research Failure: In-Universe, she compares herself to Helen of Troy because both the Preppies and the Greasers are fighting over her. Unlike Lola, Helen was a choiceless victim who was deeply upset about the situation she was in. Lola, on the other hand, is proud of the discord and was directly responsible for the fight between the Greasers and Preppies by flirting with both sides for personal gain. Lola also appears to have the roles of Paris of Troy and Menelaus of Sparta mixed up; the preppies are fighting to take her back to Old Bullworth Vale, while the Greasers are fighting to keep her in New Coventry. Helen of Troy was originally known as Helen of Sparta, and Menelaus was fighting Paris to bring Helen back to Sparta. However, it might be a case of Lola's arrogance as she thinks she's above the Greasers and believes she belongs with the Preppies.
- The Friend No One Likes: The Greasers (except for Johnny), don't like her because of her infidelity and how it's upsetting him.
- 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.
- Favors for the Sexy: She's fully aware of her reputation as a slut and strings along any boy who catches her eye. She's actually very selfish and manipulates the boys for money or for better grades. It is implied that she does care for Johnny, but she'll never take responsibility for his anger issues.
- 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 we're talking about.Trent: Lola doesn't wear underwear, she showed me.
- Hate Sink: Lola is one of the most unlikable characters by far. She takes advantage of every guy around her and the only times she's ever nice to anyone, including Jimmy, it's just to gauge how she can exploit them and will immediately turn nasty if she can't. For perspective, even the Alpha Bitch cheer captain Mandy and Rich Bitch preppy girl Pinky are given some moments to show there's more to them than their initial characterization suggests, but Lola's characterization pretty much starts and stops at "self-absorbed, manipulative tramp". Even after winning her affection, Jimmy can barely stand her, and none of the Greasers, sans Johnny, are particularly fond of her either.
- 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 where she gets her comparison to Helen of Troy from.
- She proudly compares herself to Helen of Troy from The Iliad in the final battle, when she's anything but. Briefly summarised: Helen of Troy was wrongly blamed for the Trojan war as she was mainly portrayed as a choiceless victim who felt guilty and powerless about the situation she found herself in. Depending on the telling: Aphrodite arranged a marriage between Helen and Paris of Troy while she was still married to Menelaus of Sparta, in other tellings, Helen was either seduced by Paris or she was abducted because of her beauty. In Bully, Lola is the instigator of the fight because she flirted with the preppies for money, and flirted with Algie so he'd do her homework for her. She didn't think twice about Johnny and revelled in the attention since it meant that Johnny was fighting over her.
- In another bit of irony, she's gotten the roles of Menelaus of Sparta and Paris of Troy mixed up. If Lola was being true to the comparison; she should be in Old Bullworth Vale as Johnny and the Greasers go there to take her back to New Coventry. Instead, she remains in New Coventry as the preppies go there to fight for her hand and take her to Old Bullworth Vale. In The Iliad, Helen was originally from Sparta until she was taken to Troy (hence her original name Helen of Sparta, which was changed to Helen of Troy while she lived with Paris). She returned to her home in Sparta when Menelaus won the war after expressing her guilt. If it wasn't clear enough; Johnny is Menelaus of Sparta, while Gord is Paris of Troy in this analogy. However, it might be a case of Lola's arrogance as she thinks she's above the Greasers and believes she belongs with the Preppies due to their wealth.
- It's All About Me: She gets upset when Johnny is angry with her, but never figures out that her casual infidelities are what keeps setting him off.
- Living MacGuffin: Her role in the Greaser chapter is what keeps the plot moving; Johnny suspects she's cheating on him, his suspicions are confirmed, Lola immediately starts an affair with Jimmy who eventually dumps her after realizing she's not worth the trouble. The final fight against Johnny is because everyone is fighting for her hand, whereas, Jimmy is fighting to assert dominance.
- Never My Fault: Lola never takes responsibility for her actions, even as Johnny winds up in the asylum for his anger towards Lola for her many infidelities.
- 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. She does the same with Jimmy, though he leaves her on his own accord.
- Screw the Rules, I'm Beautiful!: She manages to use her looks to escape punishment from the brawling cliques.
- Sex Is Violence: She's aroused by her partners fighting over her and she goes out of her way to flirt with other boys so she can get a reaction from Johnny.
- Shameless Fanservice Girl: Exploited, Lola wears a leather jacket, belly shirt and tight leather pants combo. She frequently manipulates her admirers and constantly toys with Johnny's emotions for attention.
- Voiced by: Joe Aro
- Ambiguously Bi: Has a crush on Ms. Philips and antagonizes Jimmy when it appears he scored a date with her, even though the Greasers and Jimmy are on good terms, he also has some kind of obsession with Johnny Vincent, and it's not subtle:How're we gonna get to Johnny?
Give me back my ball! JOHNNY!
Look at me, Johnny, look at me!
No time. I gotta see Johnny now.
Gotta help Johnny.
What can I do next to please Johnny? I mean Lola! I mean...
Johnny is going to show everyone who's the boss around here.
Johnny is too good for Lola, if you ask me.
I'm really gonna help Johnny bang some heads this semester.
Where's Johnny? Has anybody seen Johnny?
I hope Johnny is not pissed off at me.
If Johnny finds out, he's gonna kill me.
Last time I saw her, Lola made eyes at me, not Johnny!
Aaah, mommy! Johnny...
I-I did it for Johnny...
JOHNNY! A fire!
You wanna score some points with me and Johnny?
Johnnyll like it if you help me out.
I gotta tell Johnny!
Let me help you, like Johnny helped me.
Ugghh... Johnny...! Lola...!
sobbing* Johnny...! *sobs*
What does Lola see in Johnny that I don't?
- Book-Ends: He started Chapter 3 asking Jimmy for help at Johnny Vincent's request. He ends it being chased down by Jimmy at the Big Rumble, who's looking for Johnny.
- Brats with Slingshots: He's one of the Greasers capable of using slingshots.
- Compensating for Something: His nickname "Peanut" is implied to be a reference to his size... down there.
- Malaproper: When Jimmy hires him as a bodyguard:"I'll be your ears, eyes and fish, Jimmy!"
- Napoleon Complex: He's not even that short, but he's convinced he is, and tends to become irate about it.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: Not even the yearbook makes any reference of his real name. According to Chad, his real name is actually Larry, but everyone just calls him Peanut.
- Single-Target Sexuality: According to the slash community, he's Johnny-sexual. To be fair, there's enough subtext in the game to make it plausible.
- Speech Impediment: He has a slight lisp.
- Strong as They Need to Be: He's usually not much tougher than the average student, but he has a much larger life bar when you fight him towards the end of "The Rumble".
- Verbal Tic: Uses "Hero" mockingly as an insult, and he insults a lot of people.
- Wimpification: Yaoi Fangirls with crushes on Johnny often use Peanut as a wish-fulfillment role. Usually this involves Peanut being bullied and humiliated by the Preps and running in tears to Johnny.
- Yes-Man: Although he's the second in command of the Greasers he can hardly be considered The Dragon - he isn't well respected at Bullworth Academy and his job seems to be mostly delivering messages and generally kissing up to Johnny rather than leading the Greasers in the field when Johnny isn't around.
- Voiced by: Leonard Spinelli
- Big Eater:"I'm gonna start up a club, like a Fight Club. Only, instead of fighting, we'll eat cheeseburgers."
- Book-Ends: Appears with Johnny and Ricky in the Greaser's introductory cutscene in "This is Your School", Hal and the two are later fought in the last mission with Hal spray painting the Girl's dorm wall while Ricky and Johnny egg him on. They are the only clique to do this book-end.
- Chubby Chaser: He has crushes on Edna and Eunice because they are fat like him.
- Elite Mook: Uses guard-breaking combos, a damaging Grapple Move, and has higher health than most of the other free-roaming Greasers.
- Hidden Depths: One piece of dialogue has him scold a greaser for smoking, citing it's bad for their health, even though they do it all the time and Lefty has an obsession with them. He also likes war and natural disaster footage even when Lucky is bored of them.
- Horror Hunger: He mentions a disturbing cannibalistic thought when walking around."If veal is more delicious because it's made from a baby cow, then baby human has got to be the most delicious thing of all."
- Insane Troll Logic: Thinks that the Hobo spending money on food instead of booze would make him less homeless.
- Named After Somebody Famous: Shares the surname Esposito, with Joe Esposito, the road manager of Elvis Presley, the singer who influenced the Greaser subculture.
- Stout Strength: He's tied with Norton for second toughest Greaser (behind Johnny, obviously).
- Wrestler in All of Us: Fights in a wrestling stance and uses a bearhug from a grapple.

- Hidden Depths: Knows Luis personally, stating that Luis joined the Jocks because he can "kick all their asses"

- Token Minority: Claims to have been chosen as Bullworth's first Italian.
Lucky De Luca
- Voiced by: Mike Nathan
- Brats with Slingshots: Can use these if given enough distance in combat.
- Casanova Wannabe: He really thinks he's a ladies man, despite his lack of success with them. Seems eternally optomistic that the next girl he hits on is going to fall for him no matter how often it doesn't happen.
- Dislikes the New Guy: He dislikes Jimmy even after he wins the student body's approval.
- 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!"
- The Prankster: Asks Jimmy to trip people with a bag of marbles during Halloween night.
- Screaming Warrior: See "Incoming Ham" above.
- 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.
- Verbal Tic: Uses "S.O.B" as an insult. Not "son-of-a-bitch," just S-O-B.
- Voiced by: Adam Chanler-Berat
- Deadpan Snarker: If he's not riled up, most of Norton's dialogue consists of snarky observations on what's going on around him
- Drop the Hammer: "The Tenements" ends with a showdown with Norton — 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.
- Hidden Depths: Played with. Norton occassionally makes remarks that makes him appear like the stereotypical tough guy with a soft side, but makes a few rare remarks that imply this is a cultivated behavior on his part. On the other hand, he's one of a few characters with a plan for after he graduates, and he's a little bit more familiar with nerd-dom in general than someone who isn't a nerd usually is.
- Gentle Giant: Sort of. He still bullies and fights, but he also likes to contemplate poetry and artwork.
- Large and in Charge: Although Norton claims not to have any rank within the clique, he's seen taking a leadership role on two different occasions when Johnny isn't available.
- 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.
- Strong as They Need to Be: He's normally somewhat more resilient than most students but during said boss encounter in "The Tenements", he boasts a healthbar equal to Russell during his boss fight. He also gains other attributes such as completely no-selling grapples attempts and uniquely never being stunned by any sort of damage. Trying to take him on at close-range is a bad idea.

- Nobody Touches the Hair: Very much.
- Pirate: His Halloween costume. You can also encounter him as this in the small island in the rivers.]]
- Visual Pun: Combine this with his sexuality.
- Out-of-Character Moment: Whenever he's in his Halloween costume, he's set to act like a Non-Clique student, meaning he'll be friendlier towards the other Non-Clique students and be harassed by the Clique students including his fellow Greasers. Even his fight music changes. When you fight him on the island for the pirate hat Easter Egg, he'll attack on sight regardless of your standing with the Greasers.
Jimmy: Whatever, I'm not afraid of some dumb 'roid monkeys.
Gary: You'll learn.
As A Whole
- Asskicking Equals Authority: Subverted in the group itself, as their star quarterback is the preferred leader over their very strong linebacker. Played straight when considering the overall group compared to the rest of the campus, as much of the team of athletes dominate most of the other cliques' members physically and socially.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: As they're the group known for their popular athletes, it houses some of the best physical fighters in the game and in the school.
- Big Game: Their boss level, befitting for a game based on old high school movies and stereotypes. The level has Jimmy fight the entire football team, while the quarterback throws firecrackers attached to footballs at Jimmy while the entire school watches. It's also raining.
- Climax Boss: Defeating them is basically the turning point of the plot.
- Close-Range Combatant: They're the only clique in which none of their members may switch to a long-ranged weapon.
- Custom Uniform: Ted wears a gym outfit with a varsity jacket. Most of his clique wear some form of athletic gear instead of the normal uniform.
- The Dreaded: Even Gary knows not to mess with them directly. As the most popular and physically fit group on campus, they've settled their place as the toughest and highest in the campus' social hierarchy.
- Dumb Muscle: They're all idiots, but dangerous idiots to be sure. They have very little respect for education and it's been proven that they've been strong-arming the nerds into doing their homework.
- Enemy Mine: Strangely, they're the only clique that entirely averts this trope. Whereas Jimmy teams up with all of the other cliques at least once during the story, outside of errands there are no missions that involve teaming up with the jocks in any capacity.
- Flat Character: The jocks have the least characterization of the cast, as they are just the reigning popular kids who have to be humbled and dethroned by Jimmy so he can become king of the school. Their chapter consists of missions from the nerds and the only jock who does get a form of character development is Mandy.
- Groin Attack: Ted and the other jocks tends to use this if they manage to grapple someone to the ground. Some of their quotes for being hit in the groin imply that they do this to each other.Kirby: DARRRRGH Thank you sir may I have another?!
- Home Base: They are typically seen in the athletic wing near the fountain and around the gym. There's also the Jock's Clubhouse that Jimmy can use if he beats them at dodgeball.
- Hufflepuff House: Other cliques have whole chapters dedicating them. The jocks have only four missions in their name. Their own leader doesn't get much screentime compared to any of the other clique leaders.
- 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 pro wrestling moves.
- Informed Attribute: For a bunch of Jocks they don't really have a wide variety of sports to choose from, The Sport most shown around Bullworth and relevant to the story is Football, and all but 2 Jocks are on the football team, there's also the dodgeball team that only 4 jocks are on, baseball bats are scattered around everywhere, but no one uses them for actual Baseball, Pete is seen watching the Bullworth Swim team on TV even though the pool in the gym is always empty, the soccer and basketballs seen everywhere are never used aside from Luis Luna's keep ups and Constantinos' game, and the 2nd most referenced sport the jocks are into is wrestling. Jimmy has wrestling classes that teaches him grapples, and Luis, Juri, and the cut "Bob" character uses wrestling moves in their fighting style.
- Jerk Jock: Duh.
- Leitmotif: A fast-paced, electronic variation of the Bullworth overworld theme with a Crowd Chant mixed in.
- The Social Darwinist: Their clique is the school's football team and rely on strength to assert dominance over the other cliques. They mainly fight the Nerds because they are the weakest faction who can't stand up for themselves. The team follows their Quarterback, Ted, who will immediately lose leadership over the clique if someone proves themselves as better than him.
- Super Serum: It's joked and rumored that, at Mr. Burton's behest, plenty of the Jocks take some form of steroids.
- Psycho Serum: Jimmy wastes no time insulting them for their increased aggression that may or may not be linked to steroid use.
- Unblockable Attack: Damon, Kirby, Dan, and Ted all have a leaping football tackle in their movesets that cannot be blocked. If it connects, it ends with them having their opponent in a ground grapple.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: All the Jock mooks in "Funhouse Fun" are actually afraid of the funhouse and want to get out.
- Wrestler in All of Us: Downplayed, as the wrestling moves come from members of the school's wrestling team, but it's still applicable since these are regular highschoolers capable of pulling off some pro-wrestling moves.
- Voiced by: Alex Cendese
- Arch-Enemy: To Earnest.
- Bullying a Dragon: Tries bullying Jimmy despite being present when he took down Russel and heard he beat the Greasers and Preps into submission.
- The Chains of Commanding: Ted is only the leader because he was selected to be the quarterback. If anyone proves they're better than him, then he's automatically demoted.
- Dumb Jock: What shows in the tiny amount of screentime he gets, he suggests Jimmy to take a dump in front of town hall, only to be insulted by Derby for being stupid. Also doubles as:
- Flat Character: Doesn't receive much screen-time or characterization compared to the other clique leaders, and for the most part is just your stereotypical high school quarterback.
- 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.
- Orcus on His Throne: Ted and the Jocks are classed as the toughest kids in school due to being athletes but Ted never fights Jimmy directly and only appears in boss fights, even then his team are the ones who fight Jimmy. In "Total Mayhem", Ted does fight Jimmy directly and is one par with Damon when he doesn't have the team to fight alongside him.
- Out of Focus: In the chapter that deals with the jocks. He only physically appears at the beginning of Chapter 4, then reappears by the end to be defeated. Most of the story focuses on helping Earnest and the Nerds with their plans. Despite also running for class president against Earnest earlier, he still doesn't make much of an appearance there.
- The Quarterback: The quarterback of the football team, and the leader of the Jocks, the clique highest on the hierarchy at Bullworth.
- 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.
- Wolf Pack Boss: He fights with his team. Two members will fight Jimmy with hand-to-hand combat, three members will protect Ted, while Ted stands back throwing bombs at Jimmy to knock him out.
- Voiced by: Elena Franklin
- 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.
- Modesty Towel: She wears one right after you take a picture of her in the shower in "Paparazzi".
- 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.
- Voiced by: Ben Curtis
- Always Second Best: Much to Damon's resentment, Damon is the second in command because Ted proved himself to be a better quarterback. Damon does express his views of Ted in private and it's suggested that he's been trying to date Mandy. However, when Damon is with Ted, he becomes submissive and docile. Since insubordination will get Damon expelled from the team.
- Berserk Button: He will attack Jimmy on-sight if he has less than 50% respect and will immediately fight the Nerds if they enter Jock territory or vice versa.
- 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.
- 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.
- Human Hammer-Throw: During the Big Game, he will do this to Jimmy whenever he gets too close to Ted and the other surrounding Jocks haven't been taken out yet.
- Incredibly Durable Enemy: His fighting style is reckless and sloppy, but his abnormally large health bar makes him a threat to Jimmy and the nerds anytime they have to travel to the gym.
- Made of Iron: Not to Russel's level but during the boss fight against Ted, Damon tanks six hits from the exploding footballs before finally passing out. In a case of Gameplay and Story Integration, he never blocks any attacks but has an absurdly high health bar to compensate for that fact.
- Professional Butt-Kisser: For all of his insulting behind Ted's back, he does nothing but back him up and sing his praises when they're both present.
- 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.
- Voiced by: Jason Fuchs
- 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 Ability: Seen wearing a wrestling outfit in "The Gym is Burning", but uses a regular twitchy Football-based fighting style instead of a wrestling based fighting style like Luis,Juri, and the cut Bob.
- 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.

- 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.
- Shout-Out: He's named after Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel, The Brothers Karamazov.

- 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".
- The Twink: Is the smallest jock on the team, and the smallest kissable boy on Bullworth.
- 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 (and make him more obsessed with shoes) is a combination of those two tropes.
- Voiced by: Adam Scarimbolo
- Childhood Friends: Lefty Mancini says that they grew up together.
- Elite Mook: The other Jock grappler, using 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, Justified because the only sport the Jocks are seen being into is football, and he and Juri are into wrestling.
- Wrestler in All of Us: Uses a wrestling stance like Juri and uses pro wrestling moves when he fights. They're sparring partners.
- Voiced by: Tom Vergow
- 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.
Jimmy: They look pretty harmless.
Gary: They're actually sneaky bastards.
As A Whole
- Axes at School: They bring spud guns, bottle rocket launchers, stink bombs and firecrackers they invented to school, they also built a Potato Launcher LMG outside and inside the Observatory.
- Badass Bookworm: Not only can they make working and efficient weapons and chemicals, they can also plan efficiently like with "The Big Prank" where they humiliate the Jocks while they prepare for a big football game.
- Bamboo Technology: All their weapons are assembled from school supplies or things sold for school projects.
- Basement-Dweller: Their second hangout is the basement of a comic book store, it's filled with computers, sodas, a Dungeons and Dragon ripoff sprawled on a table, and one Arcade Machine.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: As Gary warns. While seemingly harmless and not very physically threatening, they craft seriously damaging weapons and plans to humiliate their sworn enemies. Some have a bit of an ego on them, Earnest especially with his Messiah Complex, and a number of them have some dialogue about taking revenge on other students.
- Bully Magnet: Due to being at the bottom of the social totem pole, they are bullied relentlessly by the other cliques.
- Custom Uniform: Earnest and his clique all wear green Astronomy Club vests or sweaters, and most of them wear bobblehats or scarves during the winter.
- Does This Remind You of Anything?: The only thing the Nerds uses that gives them a one-up against their Bullies and Jocks is guns and bombs. Well, potato guns, bottle rocket launchers, and firecrackers more like, but still...Earnest: Soon we will all have one!
- The Dog Bites Back: What so many of them dream of. Chapter 4 is dedicated to making it a reality.
- Eek, a Mouse!!: All of them are deathly afraid of rats, as shown in "Rats in the Library" where all of them refuse to go into the library after Gary releases a swarm of them there and cower all over Jimmy at the sight of one rat.
- Gadgeteer Genius: They make weapons that are Infinity +1 Swords if Jimmy gets his hands on any of them. They've also got a mounted spud cannon that can brain trained athletes in full football gear, even when they're wearing helmets!
- Geek: Doubles as these.
- Geek Physiques: It's how they're depicted, and it shows during fights where they can be taken out easily in hand-to-hand combat.
- Glass Cannon: They become this when equipped with any weapon, especially their spud guns, bottle rocket launchers, and firecrackers.
- Grew a Spine: They help Jimmy fight Bullies to get Melvin's Grottoes and Gremlin character sheets back, and they act like it's a huge Good vs Evil war. They also get motivated by Jimmy into going after the Jocks for Chapter 4.
- Hidden Depths: Considering how out of shape they are and how much their leader despises physical education, it's rather surprising to see them participate in certain sports. They'll always show up to be on Jimmy's team in dodgeball even during the unlockable optional matches and a few of them even join in on the optional bike races.
- Hollywood Dateless: They can't even score with the only nerd girl in the clique. It's even a plot point in Chapter 3 where Algie is targeted by the Greasers and Johnny Vincent because he was trying to score with Lola.
- Hollywood Nerd: Duh.
- Home Base: The library and the old abandoned observatory on campus. Off campus, they hang around Dragon's Wing and its basement, which Jimmy can also do if he beats the ConSumo high score.
- Joke Character: The nerds have small health bars (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...
- Leitmotif: An electronic variation of the Recurring Riff that plays during several mission tracks, notably "Defend Bucky", "Defender of the Castle" and even the Jock's boss theme, "The Big Game".
- Long-Range Fighter: They are absolutely pitiful in unarmed fighting. It's the inventions that they throw and shoot that give them an advantage.
- MacGyvering: They are able to craft serious weapons from school-related materials or anything they can get their hands on. Thad has made simple grenades out of erasers and fireworks.
- Magic Ampersand: Many of them play the very popular game of Grottoes & Gremlins.
- Nerd: Double Duh.
- Nerd Glasses: It's basically their uniform, the whole clique wears glasses but it could be knocked of them if they get attacked.
- Not So Above It All: Despite being bully victims themselves, they sometimes pick on non-clique students.
- Smoke Shield: Usually the result of their use of stink bombs. They do Scratch Damage when used, so their targets will simply walk through the fumes and get to them.
- Throw Down the Bomblet: Their arsenal includes firecrackers and bottle rocket launchers. Earnest's bossfight has him drop several batches of firecrackers around the place.
- Trap Master: When they control the carnival funhouse, intending to use it against the Jocks in this manner.
- Took a Level in Jerkass: In chapter 1, they were meek and cowardly and required Jimmy to protect them. By chapter 4, they refuse to help Jimmy, saying that they "are a bit above helping people like you".
- Weak, but Skilled: They may be weaklings, but they are capable of making custom weapons from Potato Launchers, Bottle Rockets, and Firecrackers.
- 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.
- Voiced by: Jesse Tendler
- Arch-Enemy: To Ted.
- Background Boss: His bossfight has him stand on platforms in the observatory, sending attacks to you from above. He's fought by attacking the supporting structures that keep the scaffolding up.
- Bad Boss: The Nerds govern themselves by having the smartest member as their leader. However, Earnest is quite incompetent in this capacity. He shows no concern for the other members of his clique when Jimmy fights them in "Stronghold Assault". After they reconcile and agree to team up against the Jocks, Earnest sends Jimmy to stalk Mandy and take illicit photos of her in the gym, the shower and the girl's dorm. He never takes responsibility for his actions and, sometimes, implies that he plans to usurp Jimmy (and later Gary) after they take control of the school. He does show some concern for his friends, but it quickly becomes very clear that his arrogance makes him overlook them.
- Covert Pervert: He frequently talks about getting his collection of "magazines" back from Algie, and he's the one who asks Jimmy to take intimate pictures of Mandy. In addition, he fantasises out loud about a magazine model right before the big game.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Although easily the least outwardly aggressive of the clique leaders, Earnest is arguably the most villainous and devious, ordering Jimmy to take explicit images of Mandy without her knowing and performing acts that were labelled as "terrorism" by Miss Danvers. Despite this, he does seem to sincerely care about his fellow Nerds; when he believed they were all gonna be beat up by the Jocks, he yelled that he loved them all.
- Four Eyes, Zero Soul: One of the most unhinged characters in the game, and him and his clique just so happen to wear glasses as a defining character trait.
- Good Is Not Nice: All of the Nerds are this from time to time, but Earnest in particular stands out. While he may be the only clique leader (besides Johnny) who at least shows respect to Jimmy (well, somewhat) and isn't openly antagonistic to him, he is still far from actually being nice and honest. It's even debatable as to whether or not he is actually "good" in the strictest sense.
- Ironic Name: "Earnest" is commonly associated with sternness and honesty. While Earnest rules his clique with an iron fist, an honest individual he most definitely is not.
- Manipulative Bastard: Combined with Ungrateful Bastard. He guilt-trips Jimmy into helping the Nerds during the first three chapters, only to then turn on Jimmy again after Earnest feels that he is of no use to them. Even after his defeat, he still pulls this off, as shown during "Defender of the Castle".
- 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.
- Smug Snake: Of the clique leaders, Earnest appears to be the most amicable and often requests Jimmy's help. However, Earnest is actually the most manipulative, trecherous and conceited. As he nearly gets Jimmy arrested for taking those photos of Mandy and nearly admits to planning to betray Jimmy in order to become king of the school.Earnest: Those over-developed, under-brained lords of our little manor, reduced to a bunch of sniveling wretches. Bowing down to my...Jimmy: You mean OUR.Earnest: I meant our superiority.
- Social Darwinist: He shows no concern for his friends when Jimmy breaks into the observatory and regards them as his "weakest compadres".
- Ungrateful Bastard: In Chapter 4, he and the Nerds abandon Jimmy when he wants their help in fighting the Jocks, as they believe he is nothing more than a bodyguard. This is despite Jimmy helping them in Chapter 1 and defeating every other clique in Bullworth Academy up to this point. It is possibly the result of Gary's manipulation.
Algernon "Algie" Papadopoulos
- Voiced by: Brett Tabisel
- Butt-Monkey: He's considered the least popular and most uncool kid in the entire school. Even Crabblesnitch refers to him as "that fat child who wets himself" - although he then suggests Jimmy is even more unpopular than Algie, right before he expels Jimmy.
- Epic Fail: His attempts at insults - smelly head, loser-pants, mayo stain...
- Expy: He's theorized to be one to Carl Wheezer from Jimmy Neutron by The Other Wiki.
- 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.
- Screams Like a Little Girl: Especially in the mission 'Save Algie'. His cries for help when a bully gets near him could shatter glass.
- Shout-Out: Possibly named after the titular lab mouse of Flowers for Algernon.
- 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 mah normal style of rapping, bro. Hoo, hoo, hoo!
Jimmy: Alright, enough! WHAT'S MY QUEST?
Algernon: Ah, right. Salutations, sir James!
- Voiced by: Caitlin Greer
- A Degree in Useless: One of her greatest fears.Beatrice: My fear is that I'll end up working in a bookstore when I'm 30 because all I have is a Master's degree from some Liberal Arts college!
- Beware the Nice Ones: Downplayed. She is one of the nicest girls on campus, but she threatens to start a rumor about Jimmy being a peeping Tom if he doesn't retrieve her chemistry notes. This becomes Hilarious in Hindsight because a later mission requires Jimmy to be a peeping tom to capture pictures of Mandy.
- Covert Pervert: Her diary contains a Hurricane of Euphemisms for sex with Jimmy.
- For Great Justice: She is obviously not gutsy enough to directly take action, but she'll snitch out wrongdoers out of a sense of justice:
- Hollywood Dateless: The story itself makes it known that she can't get the attention of many boys as one of the Nerds, and Jimmy is off-put by her offer to kiss him. He still won't have many qualms about kissing her for health during gameplay, and she can still be kissed by any boy during freeroam.
- Hollywood Nerd: She's obviously very cute beneath her old-fashioned hairstyle and cat-eye glasses, however...
- Hysterical Woman: She falls into this trope when she feels insecure about not getting into Medical School. Plus, like all the nerds, she isn't gutsy at all. And then there are those times when she starts panicking from being the Butt-Monkey.
- Motor Mouth: Combined with Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness.
- Nerd Glasses: Her teal cat-eye glasses.
- Nerds Are Sexy: Subverted. In cutscenes, Jimmy is rather turned off by her geekiness, and is reluctant to kiss her. During gameplay, however, the player can kiss her and flirt with her as often as they like, and Jimmy's dialogue generally implies that he's turned on by her geekiness.
- Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Commonly talks in free-roam in long and detailed prose. Averted in her mission appearances.
- She Cleans Up Nicely: Defied; she openly has contempt for the idea of trying.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Hence why there's a mission where you have to clear the Library (the Nerd hangout) of rats:Beatrice: No! No rats! Please (sobbing)! Oh (sobbing)!
- Voiced by: Tim Wersan
- Baths Are Fun: One of his quotes is "Al-RIGHT! Tonight is bath night! And then I can watch TV til 10."
- Book Dumb: He struggles with his grades but was able to invent a bottle rocket launcher that looks professionally designed.
- Clock King: Apparently obsessed with keeping track of time, evident with the three watches he wears and brags about.
- Just Friends: Beatrice is oblivious to his obvious feelings for her.
- Nerd Glasses: His bronze oval-shaped glasses.
- No Indoor Voice: Not as loud as Troy, but most of what he says is in a rather loud tone.
- Voiced by: Chaz Stevens
- 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.
- Twofer Token Minority: The token Black as well as homosexual/bisexual of the nerds.
- Voiced by: Jimmy Walsh
- 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.
- Voiced by: Ryan Cotler
- 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 on the School Yearbook. (A beta version of the character was named François.)
- Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: Not as much as Melvin but still.
- Voiced by: Charlie Saxton
- Abusive Parents: His father sent him to Bullworth in order to toughen him up. Melvin disagreed and saw the act as misguided.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: Tends to get confused and forget he's not a character in an MMORPG.
- The Dragon: According to the strategy guide and data files, Melvin is actually the second in command of The Nerds. In the game, however, he isn't acknowledged as such.
- Mr. Imagination: He gets a little too into role-playing games and chooses to talk like a stereotypical quest giver in an RPG. During "The Big Game", Jimmy will tell him to cut it out as it had gotten boring and annoying.
- Nerd Glasses: The same pair as Fatty.
- The Roleplayer: Believes that roleplaying is the high point of human achievement.
- Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: Slips into it while roleplaying.
- Voiced by: Kevin Cahoon
- 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.
- Big Little Brother: He's stated to be the younger brother of Dan of the Jocks and he's about a head taller than him.
- Blood Knight: A more downplayed example - while 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.
- Brick Joke: Troy will make mention of him in passing, saying that he built a grenade out of an eraser. Later, you can hear Thad explains it as placing firecrackers inside of them. As freeroam dialogue, it can happen in the other order as well.
- 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.
- Defiant to the End: Unlike the other nerds, Thad will fight back and try to go out fighting. According to school rumours, he broke a yardstick over Peanut's head and the other greasers let him walk away. Either because they respected his bravado, or were too stunned to fight back.
- 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.
- Foreign Cuss Word: If he should crash a bike he's riding, he may shout "Oh scheiße!"German for 'shit.'
- 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!
- Worthy Opponent: Considered this by the other cliques.
- Voiced by: Sue Jean Kim
- 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!
- All Guys Want Cheerleaders: She's the first girl that Jimmy has the option to kiss, and is also a cheerleader.
- 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, though it's often nervous laughter.
- The Klutz: Falls on her ass while jumping during cheerleading practice and her cheer animations are notably more delayed than the others.
- 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.
- Voiced by: Maine Anders
- 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.
- Voiced by: Mathew Stadelman
- Asshole Victim: He's such a jerksullen and unpleasant at best, and a bully and kleptomaniac at worstthat you're more likely to have a laugh at his expense than sympathize with him when things go wrong for him. And they do so regularly.
- The Chew Toy: Everything that can go wrong for Constantinos does.
- Clothes Make the Superman: As the mascot with the full outfit on, he becomes a boss and has a couple moves to make him at least on-par with the Jocks. He even shares Russell's charging headbutt, albeit a much less effective version of it.
- The Eeyore: He seems to perpetually be in a bad mood.
- Groin Attack: One of his attacks while wearing the mascot outfit.
- 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!Constantinos: (When Jimmy frightens him for the Bullworth Mascot Outfit) I HATE YOU, HOPKINS!!!
- 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.
- Laser-Guided Karma: When he steals the chocolates, you can pay for them, but there's also the option to beat him up, Bully him, or shove his face right into the toilet for a swirly. When he steals the comic books, you HAVE to knock him off his bike before he gets back to school with them.
- Strong as They Need to Be: An extreme example as he's usually one of the weakest students on campus, but when he dons the mascot outfit, he's even stronger than the jocks.
- The Stool Pigeon: He's one of the few older kids who actually tattles to the prefects.
- Took a Level in Badass: As a non-clique student, he's a shrimp who steals from others, summons prefects when his health is low, and an overall downer who overestimates himself. By chapter 4, his battle strategy while donning the mascot costume is on par with Russel and can be a difficult fight for unprepared players.
- Unblockable Attack: Two of them when he is the MascotThe first one has him flail his limbs and then deal a Groin Attack. The second one is headbutting his opponent with the horns on his costume.
- Voiced by: Cody Rose Lindquist
- 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.
- Gonk: Not only is she fat, but she has 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: During "Save Algie" you find her coming out of a bathroom stall. From a boy's bathroom. Accompanied by Pedro. There's no explanation given.
- Ungrateful Bitch: She won't accept flowers if you try and give them to her.
- Voiced by: Lea Ostner
- Black and Nerdy: Though she's really more just extremely scholastically-oriented rather than socially awkward and into dorky hobbies like the Nerds clique.
- Child Prodigy: 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.
- Likes Older Men: DownplayedShe mentions Oscar Wilde is attractive and has a very obvious crush on Jimmy, judging by responding to her positively.
- 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.
- Orphaned Reference: Her maturity is possibly a leftover from her Beta counterpart, where she was around Jimmy's age and was able to be kissed by him.
- Retcon: Gloria was originally intended to be a teenager like Angie and Christylines of dialogue for kissing were found in her data files. And in a lot of her less likely to be heard dialogue, she has a slightly deeper and smoother, more mature sounding voice. No information at all as to why she was changed to a little kid.
- Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Often talks like this.
- Voiced by: Unknown
- The B Grade: Constantly complaining about thiseven thinking 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 insecuritiesGordon 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 but is a massive coward in fights and can frequently be seen crying in fear on the Ferris Wheel.

- Black and Nerdy: Played with. Has nerdy interests, but lacks the social awkwardness of the nerds and decries how reading has obtained nerdy connotations.
- Break the Cutie: Downplayed. Lance is a generally nice, compassionate and supportive guy, but a number of his quotes seem to imply he's nearing a breaking point.Lance: I transpose everyone else's problems onto myself! And it's like a cancer, it's eating me alive!
- 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.
- Voiced by: Shannon Amabile
- 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
- Voiced by: Daniel Tay
- Ambiguously Brown: Has a Spanish name, and appears to have a slight tan. His accent is anything but Hispanic. An early screenshot showed him with paler skin, pale hair and frecklesit seems he was changed to Hispanic at the last minute because there were so few Hispanic characters in the game.
- 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.
- Noodle Incident: At one point you find him in a bathroom stall with Eunice. No explanation given.
- Out-of-Character Moment:
- He assigns Jimmy two errandsone to put a "Kick Me" sign on someone and another stuff people in trash cansand 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.
- 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.
- Voiced by: John Walker
- The Berserker: He refers to his one attack as a "Berserker Barrage", but said attack is one shove.
- 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.
- Nerd: DownplayedHe's not actually part of the clique and doesn't show dorky interests, but some of his dialogue shows some knowledge when it comes to superhero comics.
- New Transfer Student: He was this a while before Jimmy came along. He still finds it difficult to fit into school.
- Nice Guy: One of the few students in the school who is actually pretty decent.
- 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.

- Catchphrase: "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.

- 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 and can't wait to get out of Bullworth Academy.
- Out-of-Character Moment: For some reason during Halloween and specifically while he's in his werewolf costume, Trevor will have the A.I. of a Bully. This means the normally docile student will be friendly towards other Bullies, hostile towards any other student, especially Jimmy and the Nerds and will even adopt the Bullies' sloppy Brawler fighting style.
As A Whole
- Ax-Crazy: All the members but Zoe are insane. Remember, these kids are the ones who were psycho enough to be expelled from Bullworth. Clint, Leon and Otto also double as asylum inmates.

- Book Dumb: Getting expelled or dropping out from high school and the only school in town will do that.
- Boulder Bludgeon: They throw bricks and are the only clique to do so, as opposed to the Greasers' and Bullies' slingshots or the Preppies' eggs.
- Dumb Muscle: All have dropped out from Bullworth Academy and/or have lacked education for a good part of their youth, and with the town being how it is, they all wield serious durability and fighting skills.
- Fluffy the Terrible: A gang of Ax-Crazy teenagers that were expelled from what was already a hellhole of a school, is not something that usually comes to mind when hearing the word Townies.
- Man Bites Man: Some of the members have this as a grapple attack, where they will lunge at the opponent and deliver several bites.
- Nerf: In the original Bully release, the jumping double axehandle the Townies use at the end of their attacking combo went through Jimmy's guard and did full damage. This was so overpowered that Rockstar didn't even wait for Scholarship Edition to nerf it.
- The Pig-Pen: Dialogue from other characters indicate this, especially during fights.
- School Is for Losers: What many of them think, which led to plenty of them dropping out in the first place. They have a strong dislike for anybody enrolled into Bullworth.
- Throw Down the Bomblet: They also throw firecrackers if they don't have bricks.
- Tragic Dropout: If they don't already think that School Is for Losers. Dialogue from some of them indicate that they regret having dropped out or being expelled from Bullworth Academy, as it means losing education for their future or simply because it got them stuck in the town of Bullworth.
- Unblockable Attack: In the original release of Bully, the jumping double axehandle they use damaged Jimmy whether he was defending or not. And they throw that move a lot. It was nerfed for all later editions of the game.
- Uncleanliness Is Next to Ungodliness: As noted by The Pig-Pen, they tend to not have much in the way of hygiene and are an entire group of aggressive dropouts that cause Bullworth serious damage and make for some of the toughest opponents in the game.
- 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.
- Voiced by: Molly Fox
- 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...
- Gameplay and Story Segregation: She shares Jimmy's fondness for fighting and violence in cutscenes. In regular gameplay, as mentioned above, she shares the same behavior, down to the fighting style.
- Groin Attack: Claims that she inflicted this on Mr. Burton once.
- Hidden Depths: Cut voicelines show that she used to know Mandy and even used to be friends at one point.
- 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 and he manages to finally get Burton fired.
- Tomboy: According to the dialogue, she'd rather roughhouse and fight than do girly stuff.
- Voiced by: Jan Milewicz
- Ambiguously Brown: His skin tone and clothing style are both Hispanic, but his accent is anything but. His last name is a English last name, but his first name could be either English or Spanish.
- 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.
- A Father to His Men: Implied. A Dummied Out but still story-relevant cutscene shows that he's not exactly happy that Jimmy beat up "[his] boys" just to get to him to talk things out.
- Freudian Excuse: His parents couldn't afford the tuition to Bullworth for long, leading to him dropping out and being stuck in "this dump of a town." Suddenly, a sociopathic student from said school comes along and gives him the offer to make them all pay...
- The Leader: Of the Townies clique. You only learn this suddenly during the "Busting In" missions.
- Pipe Pain: His boss battle has him armed with a large pipe, which you first have to block and later fight with on his own terms.
- 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.
- Voiced by: Omar Romero
- Ax-Crazy: Sounds like an absolute lunatic when fightingand considering the Townies are so crazy they double as inmates of the local insane asylum, that says a lot.
- Blood Knight: Nearly every thing that comes out of his mouth is either about fighting, hating Bullworth Academy, or both.
- Lean and Mean: Tall and very skinny with a violent hatred of Bullworth.
- Non Sequitur, *Thud*: All of his knock-out lines are like this.
- Strong as They Need to Be: Similar to Peanut, his relatively average lifebar gets a big boost during the mission "Busting In, Part II".
Clint (aka Henry)
- Voiced by: Justin Mortelliti
- Ax-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...
- Token Good Teammate: "Good" is pushing it a bit, but he notes that he doesn't hate the Bullworth kids like the rest of the Townies and is the only member other than Zoe to treat Jimmy with respect, even if it's to ask for errands.
- Voiced by: Adam Tetzloff
- All Gay Guys Want Bad Boys: Implies that he believes this (and considers himself the bad boy) in his makeout dialogue.
- 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.
- Had to Be Sharp: Given that he might be formerly 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.
- Voiced by: Dave Isaacs
- 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
- Karma Houdini: His setting the school gym on fire should have, realistically, landed him in actual prison for years. Once the fire's out it's never mentioned again, and Jimmy doesn't seem to hold the fact that he nearly killed 3 people against him.
- 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!
- Younger Than They Look: His prominent beard, height and deep voice make seem like he's at least on his twenties, but he's still a teenager like the rest of the Townies.
- Voiced by: Unknown
- Allergic to Routine: He fights and fights as a bodyguard to alleviate his boredom.
- 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 all likelihood, 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.
- Voiced by: Lance Williams
- Ax-Crazy: Enough to double as an asylum inmate.
- Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: He keeps in contact with his mom and helps her out with errands sometimes.
- Lazy Bum: Would rather watch TV than do what he's currently doing.
- Loophole Abuse: A smaller case in that it doesn't get him completely off the hook; His juvenile status means that he has legal protection from misdemeanors.
- 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.
- Those Two Guys: Appears with Duncan quite often in missions.
- Voiced by: Ian Stynes
As a whole
- Apple for Teacher: Their rarely-seen long-range attack is based off of this, where they throw apples at their target if they can't get to them.
- The Bad Guys Are Cops: They're the police force within the game and it's shown that they're not doing their jobs for the sake of law and order. Seth and Karl use their authority to abuse the students and Edward's using his authority to pad out his resume (and seemingly flirt with girls). The only one who seems mildly interested in fulfilling his duties is Max, who seems genuinely interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement.
- Cutscene Incompetence: The prefects are good at catching misbehaving students, however, during Complete Mayhem, Russell is able to chase off Seth and Max.
- Jerkass: Many of them became Prefects for selfish reasons and treat the other students with contempt.
- Leitmotif: The song that plays whenever Jimmy is being chased by one or more Prefects — a fast-paced, funky theme that's heavy on the wah pedal and horns, not unlike what you may hear when watching a 1970s cop show or movie.
- Not So Above It All:
- The game is programmed to have every NPC respond to "Kick Me" Signs when applied to someone, and the Prefects are no different.
- During Complete Mayhem, the prefects are absent and inside the school building. They confiscate Jimmy's slingshot and are chased off by Russell. They do so not to stop any chaos but because "Weapons are for Prefects only!", showing that they've fully agreed to Gary's riot.
- Screw the Rules, I Enforce Them!: Plenty joined the Prefects to give them the excuse to bully and beat students with the school's justification.
- Ungrateful Bastard: Even after Complete Mayhem, they still treat Jimmy with contempt.
- Younger Than They Look: Despite seeming to be at least in their thirties, Seth and the rest of the prefects are actually seniors close to graduating, which would place them all about seventeen or eighteen years of age.
- Voiced by: Unknown
- 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.
- Informed Attribute: Almost all of his dialogue consists of threatening to beat anyone who breaks the rules. However, he never physically attacks any of the students and instead uses the same restraining technique the rest of the prefects use. His dialogue is likely a leftover from the beta version of the game, where the prefects carried batons and actually did use them on the students.
- Jerkass: Constantly threatening students with beatings, and really seems to enjoy it to boot.
- Large Ham: EEEEEEEEVILDOER!
- Voiced by: Wilhelm Lewis
- Bad Cop/Incompetent Cop: Thankfully not as abusive or power abusing as Seth, but he's definitely doubleplus ungood.
- 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 WAS BELOW THE BELT!
Argh! That is disgusting and unhygienic!
- The Napoleon: Another mild caseHe'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: DownplayedHe 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
- Voiced by Ryan King
- 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.
- Voiced by: Lenny Grossi
- 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 "toilet stain" and "smear wipe."
- 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 prefectshe 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.
As a whole
- Badass Teacher: They're all statistically formidable with high stamina and health bars on par with the tougher clique leaders as well as immunity to any grapple attempts.
- Non-Giving-Up School Guy: If any of the staff are provoked in free roam. They have tons of health larger than the Prefects and are authority figures who can instantly bust you if the trouble meter is high enough. And just like the Prefects, getting caught by them automatically sends you to class if you have one active.
- No-Sell: To grapple attempts.
- Stern Teacher: Regardless of their actual personality, whenever they appear in free roam they will act contemptuous and dismissive towards all students when interacted with.
- Voiced by: Ralph Gunderman
- 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: Downplayedhe 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 and has a healthbar that is four times the size of the average adult and Prefect. 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.
- 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.
- Nostalgia Filter: Always longing for the good old days, such as when students were always expected to respect adults and authority.
- Nostalgia Ain't Like It Used to Be: His views tend to fog how he sees things at Bullworth. Jimmy causing a ruckus is troublesome but any other form of hazing is simply school spirit, noting that back in his day, "[they] thought nothing of castrating the new boys!"
- Pet the Dog: He gets a long string of these during the ending, where among other things he praises Jimmy for exposing Gary, promptly fires Burton and rescinds Zoe's expulsion after hearing the situation behind it, promotes Pete to head boy at Jimmy's suggestion and finally, decides not to expel Jimmy after all.
- Politically Motivated Teacher: Downplayedhis 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.
- Voiced by: Michael Boyle
- 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.
- Covered in Gunge: Ends up covered in feces when Jimmy pushes the port-a-potty Mr. Burton is in off the ledge as revenge for getting Zoe expelled.
- Creepy Gym Coach: He's very interested in the female students and asks Jimmy to get panties for 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.
- Paper-Thin Disguise: In "Panty Raid", he doesn't even bother disguising himself besides wearing a fishing hat and a pair of black shades. Bonus points for the fact that the Bullworth Academy crest is clearly on his trousers.
- 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.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: He wears coaching shorts all the time except for the winter. Needless to say it's not played for fanservice.
- Voiced by: Patricia Kilgariff
- Born in the Wrong Century: Extremely outdated clothing, dislikes modern society, and mentions that she hasn'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.
- Voiced by: Lori Funk
- 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: While she's by no means an unattractive woman, she's slightly outside of the age range that usually comes with this trope. She looks like she might have fit this role better ten or fifteen 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.
- Voiced by: Kathy Rossetter
- 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.
- Good Is Not Nice: To Jimmy at least, unlike most staff members and authority figures. Edna is quite civil and tries to be as friendly as possible to Jimmy. However, Jimmy is still disgusted by her.
- 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
- Voiced by: Robert Stanton
- Affectionate Nickname: Ms. Philips calls him "Gally-bear".
- The Alcoholic: Driven to drinking by relentless bullying over the course of years from Mr. Hattrick.
- Benevolent Boss: Teacher variant. Being one of the few adults in the game (or the world, depending how you look at it) that isn't useless, the students actually regard him with genuine respect because of how much he genuinely cares about his students (special mention for praising students giving each other answers to class assignments as "helping" rather than punishing them for "cheating" because of the positive impact it has on their grades). He's also the only teacher that Jimmy sincerely addresses as "sir", despite having to mop him up a few times, for exactly this reason.
- 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.
- Everyone Has Standards: He may be a nice guy but he has a notable hatred of Mr. Hattrick, for justified reasons.
- Mr. Vice Guy: He may be an alcoholic, but he is so kind and nice that he encourages his own students to do their homework assignments in class so that they can have more free time in the evening, among other things.
- Out-of-Character Moment: Despite being a Cool Teacher who is usually nice to Jimmy, if you encounter him in free-roam mode and greet him politely, he will rudely tell him off.
- 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 tooLuis 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.
- Voiced by Charles Turner
- Abhorrent Admirer: It's suggested that Hattrick also has feelings for Ms. Philips but she finds him repulsive and evil for how he treats people.
- 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 Bullworthhe 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, being hung over in front of the children, and hiding bottles of alcohol in the school. 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 due to Galloway's behavior Galloway getting fired would be perfectly justifiable.
- 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.
- Pet the Dog: He's actually relatively pleasant in Math class.
- Sadist Teacher: Doesn't think corporal punishment in school is adequatehe wants capital punishment.Children are like dogs! They only learn through frequent punishment!
- Scary Black Man: He may be obese, but he's also the physically largest character in the game and a former soldier. He was actually able to intimidate Russell into behaving himself, and none of the other teachers are willing to stand up to him.
The Hobo (aka Mr. Grant)
- Voiced by Angus Hepburn
- 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: The Hobo 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.
- 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.
- Suspiciously Specific Denial: Miss Danvers announces over the PA system that the Hobo is NOT a fired former teacher and there are to be no rumors to the contrary.
- 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.
- Voiced by: Sean Eden
- 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.
- Voiced by: Unknown
- Adventurer Archaeologist: Apparently was this at one point in his life. We would have gotten that idol if it wasn't for the damn boulder.
- Nice Guy: The only bad thing you could say about him is that he's enthusiastic about geography to the point of being a little annoyingbut he's still miles better than most of the other teachers in Bullworth.
- Voiced by: Susan Blommaert
- 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.
- Voiced by: Jesse Lenat
- Catchphrase: "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.
- Voiced by: Saidah Ekulonah
- Beware the Nice Ones: While she's not so extreme so as to qualify as a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing, she has a nasty side that shows when she uses her power to fail Jimmy to get him to participate in the Pageant.
- Cool Teacher: Is very encouraging and polite.
- Granola Girl: Judging by the dreadlocked hairstyle and tie-dye outfit.
- Hippie Teacher: She has a more manipulative side, though.
- Sassy Black Woman: When she blackmails Jimmy into taking part in the Christmas Pageant.
Ms. Deidre Phillips
- Voiced by: Blaire Ross
- Hot for Teacher: Just about every guy in the school.
- Innocent Fanservice Girl: She does a few poses during art classes and Jimmy's portraits get more and more "flattering". She also asks Jimmy for some favors and didn't realize that she was implying that she had feelings for him when, in reality, it was Galloway who caught her eye.
- Lady in Red: Dons a cleavage-revealing red dress for a date with Mr. Galloway.
- Mrs. Robinson: Inadvertently tricks Jimmy into thinking she wants a date with him. Instead, it turns out the date is with Galloway; she pinches Jimmy on the cheek and calls him cute.
- Out-of-Character Moment: Just like Galloway, she's normally one of the nicest teachers on campus but attempting to interact with her in free roam will result in her insulting you at best.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Again, one of the very few in the school.
- Single Woman Seeks Good Man: She and Galloway do end up in a relationship and it helps that Galloway is one of the more popular and affable teachers. That, and they share their hatred for Mr Hattrick.
- Sweater Girl: Her usual outfit is a leather jacket over a white sweater.
- Voiced by: Flo Salant
- Apathetic Teacher: Claims she has never been happy ever since she was five years old, and considers this to be unfortunate.
- Does Not Like Men: 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: DownplayedWhile she's seen patrolling the girls' dorm (and the girls' washroom in one mission), her actual teaching role is unknown. It's been speculated that she's the Home Economics teacher since there's a Home Economics room but no designated teacher. However, there's no specific evidence for this.

- Deadpan Snarker: Gets in a nice one if Jimmy passes biology.Dr. Slawter: Well boy, you've passed Biology. I suppose there must be some scientific explanation.
- 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:Dr. Watts: What are you all doing in here?! Oh, right. Class.
- Understandable in this one case, since it's the first day of school, and it's most likely only directed at Jimmy (who, frankly, could be forgiven for not looking like he should've been there). It's completely played straight in another class, where he says the students can turn in their assignments on his desk... before remembering he didn't GIVE any assignments to turn in.
- Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male: Let's just say the romantic tryst between Watts and Edna wasn't exactly consensual.
- Hallucinations: He appears to suffer from these quite frequently, having been exposed to chemical fumes in the labs for so long.
- Mad Scientist: A rare light-hearted, rather than evil, version.
- Voiced by: Gary Yudman
- 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: He has no role in the story, bar one minor appearance in a Scholarship Edition mission, and teachers don't spawn very frequently in free roam either. For these reasons, he's unknown to most players.
- 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.

- Have I Mentioned I Am Heterosexual Today?: "I always get my man!...That didn't sound gay, did it?"

- Police Are Useless: Kinda subverted he gives Jimmy a couple of errands to do jobs that he should do himself, but at least he made sure the jobs got done at all.
- Voiced by: Chad L. Coleman
- Dirty Cop: Double subvertedhe's a nice guy and not openly corrupt, but an errand shows he has at least one corrupt dealing with Milhailovich, the motel owner.
- Glory Days: His days as a high school track star.
- Police Brutality: Averted. He doesn't seem to enjoy police brutality, or at least he takes care to cover that up.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Seems to genuinely care for juveniles in Bullworth. He drops Jimmy off at school if he's caught during curfew or playing truant, and also warns him about the consequences of crime every time.
- Token Minority: The only black officer in Bullworth's police department.
- Voiced by: James Norton
- Bad Cop/Incompetent Cop: Not a corrupt or brutal guy, but is a bit slow.
- By-the-Book Cop: The only cop not shown to be engaging in corruption or police brutality.
- Momma's Boy: He's rather close to his mother and mentions her often. Sometimes he'll even call out to her when knocked out.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: He never abuses his authority and is an Authoritarian at worst. He also gives Jimmy two different side quests to help maintain the Tenements, even though the only people it'll be benefiting are the Greasers.
- Wholesome Crossdresser: Apparently he's wearing a bra and a girdle underneath that uniform and mentions shopping for lingerie. He's still one of the more noble members of the Bullworth Police Department.
- Voiced by: Saetha Ebans
- Granola Girl: Sort ofshe doesn't rock the hippy vibe but she's into natural living and organic products.
- Perky Goth: Dresses in all black and has black spiked hair with metallic blue highlights, but she's cheerful.
- Transgender: She's attached to a male skeleton, so she'll bust Jimmy with a collar grapple and scream in a male voice if hit with spray paint. Plus if she's added to free roam she'll stagger around drunk and pee in the alleyways like male townsfolk. It's impossible to tell if this was deliberate, or some sort of design oversight or necessity.

- Pretty Fly for a White Guy: Downplayed, but he works hip-hop lingo into his speech.
- Voiced by: Vincenzio Sanseviero
- Voiced by: Andrew Pang
- Asian Speekee Engrish: During cutscenes he speaks American English with a generic accent, but during free roam he has a pretty painful stereotypical ghetto-Asian accent. Zig-zagged as well because some of these free roam lines are in the abovementioned generic acccent too.
- Voiced by: Adam Sietz
- Abhorrent Admirer: To Miss Kopke. Apparently he tried asking her out to a comic convention.
- Dummied Out: Like all shopkeepers, he doesn't 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.
- Voiced by: Jon Young
- The Stoner: Outright stated to use marijuna, heavily implied to be under the influence when interacting with Jimmy.
- Suddenly SHOUTING!: Usually slow speaking and relaxed, but if angered enough he goes straight to OUTRIGHT SCREAMING FURY! It's another implication that he's under the influence of mind-altering substances.
- Voiced by: Kanika Looby
- Dummied Out: All shopkeepers don't 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.
- Voiced by: Brian Doerries
- 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.

- Struggling Single Mother: Talks about being one a lot.
- Voiced by: Tom Mardirosian
- 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.

- Gentle Giant: Despite being a massively muscular construction worker, he likes to wax poetic about the seasons and believes that the biggest problem boys have these days is too much discipline.
- Voiced by: Vincent Lombardi
- The Quiet One: For a weird reason. It seems Denny was programmed as a shopkeeper and then switched to a townsfolk at the last minuteso he has no 'chatter' dialogue and doesn't speak under general circumstances.
- The Quincy Punk: His leather tights, tattoo sleeves, mohawk and tons of piercings fit the aesthetic.
- Voiced by: Paul Diomede
- Jerkass: He constantly insults Jimmy, saying things like "Even I wouldn't want your clothes", "Even my teeth are better than yours", and "I hate you, yes you!".

Supposedly he was an ace pilot, and he complains about such ace pilots as Eddie Rickenbacker and Roy Brown stealing his kills and his glory. But he claims he got demoted to the trenches, and now claims he kills people and buries them in his back yard.
