Whenever there's a young outsider or a bumbling protagonist, there's a bully. Bullies help our downtrodden teen/pre-teen become a hero, help them make the speech or the punch that inspires the slow clap from their peers and forces them to learn to kick standing on one leg like a crane. There are a lot of memorable movies and TV shows that featured some of the most memorable bullies in pop culture. Anyone who has seen any of the Back to the Future movies can attest that anyone from the Tannen family, Biff, Griff or Buford "Mad Dog," are great examples of memorable bullies. The same goes for anyone who has seen Popeye and can vouch for how what a mean and vicious a bully can be. 

Bullies can come in any size or form. Wayne Arnold from The Wonder Years and Eddie Haskell from Leave it to Beaver are two very different, yet menacing bullies who at one point were considered the biggest bullies on TV.

Vote here for the most iconic bullies from big and small screen (no book bullies, that seemed too hard). It's up to you to pick which of these fictional character takes home the title of biggest bully. There's plenty of great choice so vote who takes home the title of biggest bully.
