Our hero, in all his stomping glory.

The Life and Times of Bully Demise is a Let's Play series by Supergreatfriend starring his original character Bully Demise, the eight-foot-tall, sixteen-year-old aspiring professional wrestler.

The series is about Bully Demise's rise to become the World Champion Wrestler (albeit with a number of detours along the way) spanning several MDickie games and one WWE Game.

  • The series starts in Wrestling Revolution, chronicling the creation of Bully and his attempts to get a contract. It... doesn't go terribly well for him.
  • It continues in Hard Time, wherein Bully is sent to prison for his misconduct. But Bully won't let that keep him down!
  • Next is The You Testament, whereupon Bully wakes up in a strange place. He meets a traveler by the name of Jesus, who teaches Bully about his religious philosophies. And also how to set things on fire with his mind.

  • Then, in Wrecked, Bully finds himself somehow stranded on a remote island, where he must fight for survival and where people turn into meat if you punch them hard enough.
  • Finally, in WWE 2K14, Bully makes his way back to the world and finally has a shot at his lifelong dream; winning the WWE title belt! But this turns out to be more difficult than he ever could have imagined when mysterious circumstances befall the WWE...
  • At some point (shortly before his WWE debut?) Bully stars in a wrestling-school Visual Novel romance.

The series can be watched here.

This series contains examples of:

  • Bittersweet Ending: At the end of Bully's journey, he finally won the title from Undertaker (Retro), but at the behest of André the Giant (another form of Bully's old friend Jesus), his deceased parents and the late The Big Show, had to surrender it - and his life - to close the gap that was allowing the undead to rise and plot against humanity. On the plus side, he gets to stomp all manners of Eldritch monsters on the other side of the veil, a fact he greatly enjoys.
  • Cloudcuckoolander:
    • Owing in no small part to SGF's unique sense of humor, Bully Demise does not have the firmest grasp on the world around him.
    • Vince McMahon gets a bit of this too, having apparently tried to use stomps as payment for taxes, and when Santino is murdered, he believes that if the murderer is defeated, he can be banned from murder. Jorg gives an appropriate response.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Bully Demise interprets information that he gets in WWE 2K14 that he must stop an evil force that dates back to the time of dinosaurs as meaning that it’s up to him to save the dinosaurs.
  • Continuity Porn: The WWE 2K14 story not only references the events of the previous games Bully Demise was played as, but also nearly every game that SuperGreatFriend had done a playthrough of on his channel up until that point.
  • Cool Mask: Bully Demise wears a silver Luchador mask over another mask. He's that cool. (Except in Hard Time, where he wears a Bane mask.)
  • Death Is Cheap: Bully Demise has apparently died, only to come back somewhere else, on multiple occasions.
  • Designated Hero: In-Universe - SuperGreatFriend sets Bully Demise as a face during character creation in Wrestling Revolution, but he still brutally maims his opponents, uses foreign objects, and cheats. This leads to an unintentional deconstruction, as the crowd starts booing him regardless.
  • Determinator: The reason Bully managed to come back to life is because of he wanted to win the World Title that badly.
  • Enemy Without: Killerman, a.k.a. "Killy Demise," apparently.
  • Epic Fail: Bully Demise for the first three games in the series. He ends Wrestling Revolution tens of thousands of dollars in debt, evidently from buying the same sword over and over again and being unable to sign a contract. He ends Hard Time by being beaten to death by prison guards after having his sentence extended by seven days after serving three days, while trying to get back into prison after successfully breaking out. In The You Testament he gets sent to prison and then crucified. Even in Wrecked and WWE 2K14 he dies again and almost gets killed, respectively.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Bully Demise stomping on Spunk Bloodily during his second match.
    "This is what Bully Demise does. Just sort of walks on people.''
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Bully wears one black boot and one white boot; he also has an extra armband on one arm. And he is, of course, the pinnacle of style. Even Big Show thought so!
  • Garbage Wrestler: When Bully Demise isn't repeatedly stomping on his opponents, he's usually stabbing them with his sword.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: The Big Show takes a Killerman laser to save Bully's life. And at the very end, Bully himself passes to the great beyond to heal the rip in reality.
  • Ignored Aesop: Bully learns that the villain Killerman is actually “Killy Demise,” and that he is effectively Bully’s own rage made flesh. Bully wonders if he should learn a lesson from that, but decides to just stick Killy Demise in a coffin and not contemplate it further.
  • Kung-Fu Jesus: Jesus in The You Testament.
    Jesus: I don’t bite, but I do hiss!
    Supergreatfriend: Really, Jesus? cause it looked like you were doing plenty of biting just now.
  • Last-Name Basis: A strange example. Since Supergreatfriend wanted to use The Undertaker's 70's appearance, his name is shown as "Undertaker (Retro)". That is apparently his full name, and many other characters just call him (Retro).
  • Massive Multiplayer Crossover: The WWE 2014 LP contains, through the magic of the extensive character creator, cameos from many games that Supergreatfriend has LP'd in the past, including Illbleed, MODE, Spy Fiction and many more. And some characters make more than just cameo appearances...
  • Mundane Made Awesome: Professional wrestling. The Undertaker is the lord of the dead in his spare time, and the WWE World Title belt is the most powerful object in the universe.
  • Nightmare Face: Bully Demise in Judean Prison is quite memorable.
  • Pals with Jesus:
    • Bully and Jesus are tight.
    • In fact, both Jesus and John the Baptist are crucified while wearing Bully Demise's eponymous t-shirt, due to Supergreatfriend having to mod Bully's costume in the game files as clothes that the NPCs can wear.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Bully, especially in the MDickie games.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: In the last part of Wrecked, Bully Demise ends up dying off-camera, after SGF had spent so much time and effort working on the boat. He retorts by starting a new game, having Bully Demise remember the powers Jesus taught him, and killing every living thing on the island.
    "Bully Demise has cast judgement on this ecosystem, and he finds it wanting. He has decided it should not exist any more."
  • Signature Move: The almighty stomps, with which Bully Demise crushes his enemies and shows love for his fans.
  • Squash Match: Many of Bully Demise’s fights, but most notably his fight with Dio, whom Supergreatfriend set to have minimal combat stats because he and his fans hated the character and wanted to see him beaten thoroughly.
  • Stylistic Suck: The lasers Killerman uses to kill Big Show.
  • Surreal Horror: The eighth episode of WWE 2K14, after Bully's apparent death... again.
  • Tsundere: Type B. Before he’s even met her, a woman in Hard Time declares her love for Bully Demise. After he accepts her as his girlfriend, she aides him in one fight. The next day he accidentally hits her with a soccer ball and from there she tries to beat him and threatens to kill him.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Bully was designed, due to how frustrating Wrestling Revolution's gameplay mechanics were, with a lot weight, power, and height, at the cost of skill: this essentially meant his playstyle revolved entirely around knocking an enemy down and then refusing to give them the opportunity to get up. An AI controlled Bully in WWE 2K14, however, proves to be somewhat smarter.
  • Villain Protagonist: For the first few games in the series, Bully doesn’t do anything remotely heroic. It’s not until the WWE 2K14 game that he becomes the defender of the universe from the Mystic, Killerman, and the Shadow.
  • You Don't Look Like You: Bully Demise in Hard Time looks nothing like Bully Demise in the rest of the series because Supergreatfriend was playing on the Ouya and couldn't customize his look.
  • Younger Than They Look: Bully is canonically sixteen years old despite being a hulking brute.
