Fifteen Memorable Bullies in Movies


So recently I watched A Christmas Story. And even though I watch the movie 24 hours a day during Christmas time, it’s great any time of year.Clearly tit’s one of your all time classics around the holidays. But what particularly drew my attention this 368th time around, was Scut Farkus. Man was he a vicious little bully huh? Those eyes, those braces. He was perfect. Although I do think the line “when I tell you to come, you better come” rubs me the wrong way. In any event, it reminded how awesome the role of bully is in movies. Which is why I came up with good list of 15 memorable bullies in movies.

Scut Farkus in A Christmas Story

Amazingly enough this guy (Zack Ward) had a career after this movie. Also have to give a shout out to his little twink sidekick Grover Dill.

Melvin Moody – My Bodyguard

This is a classic role by Matt Dillon. He was great at playing a dick back in his early days. This is definitely an overlooked movie in my opinion. I mean the guy was so mean he forced the main character to hire a bodyguard. Now that’s serious stuff man.

Johnny Lawrence in Karate Kid

Do I even have to mention this? Zabka, the ultimate 80’s badboy. We could also give him two more spots with Greg Tolan from Just one of the Guys and Chaz from Back to School.

Mike Barnes – Karate Kid III

If you ask me this movie had way to many weird sexual undertones but that’s me. Even so, Barnes was definitely an extremely hateable character. This guy (Sean Kanan) wound up doing Soap Operas.

Rick Sandford in Angus

Another overlooked bully role played by James Van Der Beek. Van Der Beek was the pretty boy blond role in the teenage comedy Angus. If you haven’t seen it I suggest you do because that blond geeky chick from Jurassic Park looks pretty decent in it.


Chozen in Karate Kid II

Probably one of my favorite actors of all time, Yuji Okumoto. I even featured this dude in one of my Whatever Happened to articles. Kudos to Karate Kid for being up on this list three times.

Biff Tannen in Back to the Future

You didn’t think I’d leave out Biff did you? Butthead!

Bruno and Spike in Lucas

This was my excuse to add in Jeremy Piven as a young lad. Plus his name is Spike! But still, he and that blond guy who was in Revenge of the Nerds II (Tom Hodges) were pretty mean to poor little Cory Haim in this flick.

Buddy Revell in Three O’Clock High

No one is allowed to touch this guy, and if you do, watch out.

Stan Gable in Revenge of the Nerds

Pretty boy Stan Gable. “And I know just….what we’re gonna do.


Niedermeyer in Animal House

This guy is incredible. I’m not sure if it’s more because of his role in Animal House or the fact that he played Maestro in Seinfeld.

Heather Chandler in Heathers

Congratulations to a woman for making this list. I could have also gone with Christine Taylor in The Craft but she ends up getting hers too early.

Ace Merrill in Stand By Me

Easily one of the best bullies of all time. He practically kills River Phoenix and the guy who plays Phoenix’s own brother barely steps in. Now that’s power. You gotta love old school Kiefer. His hair was very blond.

O’bannion in Dazed and Confused

Ben Affleck before he was Ben Affleck. Great role for him. Obviously a classic. Did you know O’bannion’s first name was Fred? I didn’t.

Chet in Weird Science

“How about a nice, greasy pork sandwich served in a dirty ashtray?”
