Top 10 Movie Bullies
We can all agree that no one likes a bully, but in movies a bully can be the perfect obstacle for our fave heroes and characters to one up and overcome. Check out Kidzworld's Top 10 Movie Bullies!
No.10: Biff Tannen (Back to the Future)
Biff Tannen is the classic high school bully that everyone fears and hates, which is part of what makes this trio of time-travelling flicks from the '80s timeless!
No.9: Scut Farkas (A Christmas Story)
A Christmas Story is a classic film about feeling persecuted during the holiday season, by family, friends, teachers and most of all the mean-spirited neighborhood bully Scut Farkas. Check out the clip below!
No.8: Richard Vernon (The Breakfast Club)
It's clear as soon as you see how Principal Richard Vernon treats the students locked in for Saturday detention that he has a vendetta against them all and isn't afraid to use his power over them as a weapon to terrorize, but this only brings this group of students who have nothing in common closer to each other.
No.7: Cato & Clove (The Hunger Games)
One of the scariest things that could happen to you living in the fictional dystopian world of The Hunger Games is being chosen as a tribute, but when our self-sacrificing heroine Katniss Everdeen encounters some of the other tributes during practice and later during the games she quickly catches on that some people enjoy the prospect of the deadly sport like Tributes Cato and Clove.
No.6: The Volturi (Twilight)
Generally I think we can all agree that vampires can probably take care of themselves, but in the world of Twilight the ancient Volturi reign over everyone and impose their regime through tyranny and fear.
No.5: Marianne (Easy A)
Amanda Bynes turns in a memorable performance as a spiteful Christian group leader who's head is so full of god that she can't see that her religious fervour and harsh judgements are hurtful instead of helpful when she finds out about Emma Stone's less than spotless reputation. Check out this clip of Emma Stone and Amanda Bynes below!
No.4: Gaston (Beauty and the Beast)
When it comes to Disney villains, no one fits the bully profile better than Belle's unwanted muscle-bound suitor Gaston. Gaston thinks he can have whatever he wants simply by intimidating others and spreading bigotry.
No.3: Regina George (Mean Girls)
Regina George isn't just a mean girl, she's the epitome of a bully who gets her own way by manipulating her friends, classmates and boyfriend. This popular mean girl is played perfectly by Rachel McAdams.
No.2: Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter)
Hogwarts is a magical school full of potions, spells and wonderful wizards, but just like a regular school there's a bully lurking in the midst of all the fun hustle and bustle. Draco Malfoy is there to make Harry Potter's life hell, but Harry and BFFs always find a way to outfox him in the end.
No.1: Agatha Trunchbull (Matilda)
In the movie adaptation of Roald Dahl's classic children's novel Matilda about a little girl genius with booksmarts that turn into telepathic power, the bully takes the form of the Principal Trunchbull who takes pleasure in tormenting Matilda, her classmates and her fave teacher Miss Honey.
