Max attempting to bust Jimmy while Edward watches.

The Prefects are four senior students at Bullworth Academy. They are the lowest level of authority in the game, and are responsible for general enforcement of the rules on campus.


Seth is the presumed leader. He's in charge of overseeing detention, has the largest role of the four, and is the toughest of them. The game data files state that Karl is the leader of the Prefects and that Max is the second in command. However, the data files are known to be inaccurate and do not reflect changes made later in the game's development.

Description and Information[]

All four prefects are easily spotted on campus due to their relatively large stature (excluding Karl), their navy blue suit jackets, and the fact that they show up as red dots on the radar. They enforce the rules of the school on campus. Despite being students, the prefects are not seen attending classes and are not in the yearbook. The prefects are generally hostile toward Jimmy Hopkins and the other students. All four prefects like to abuse their authority, though Seth is by far the worst in that regard.

The prefects will always be present on campus no matter what time of the day it is. They patrol the school grounds, the school itself, the library, and sometimes the gym. After dark they carry flashlights. If they spot someone committing a rule violation, they immediately run at the person in question and try to bust them. Offenses severe enough to completely fill the Trouble Meter, for example attacking a little kid, causes prefects who have already spawned to come running from wherever they are, and may cause prefects to spawn near Jimmy.

The only time when they are not visibly present is on Halloween night and during Complete Mayhem, though they will spawn if Jimmy commits a maximum severity rule violation.

They are almost never friendly towards their fellow students. It is possible for Jimmy to get a friendly response from the Prefects if he is wearing the Orderly Uniform and a respectable haircut. Any of the cuts he can get from Maria Theresa and a few of the ones he can get from Mr. Moratti work. In addition to the friendly response, they will no longer insult Jimmy if they see him walking by.

The Prefects only spawn on Bullworth Academy grounds and will not leave the campus under normal circumstances. However, they may pursue fleeing students into town and will continue to act as authority figures while in town. This can lead to them attempting to bust male Townsfolk. If the male townsfolk escape from a prefect's attempt to bust them, they will in turn attempt a citizen's arrest on the prefect. However, this will be considered a Violence - Authority violation by the game, and the police will appear to bust the townsfolk. On even rarer occasions prefects can bust police - if a policeman accidentally hits a prefect with a poorly aimed punch or a vehicle, it will be considered Violence - Authority. Conversely, should townsfolk end up on Bullworth Academy grounds, the prefects will enforce the rules against them like they would against Bullworth students.

Earlier versions of Seth, Karl, and Max were posted on Tyler Wilson's website. The older versions carried police style batons. Early screenshots of Bully also showed the prefects carrying paddles.
