"Arrggh, Dude!"
— His Catchphrase

Tanner is a character from Bowser Junior's Summer School series, and he is mostly known for bullying other people in class.


Despite being a Shy Guy, he is very mean, and he likes to insult people at school. He likes to bully Cody, either calling him "four eyes" or beating him up. He also doesn't like taking tests and in Bowser Junior's Summer School 5, he pulls the fire alarm to avoid taking a test. He also likes to bully Paul, calling him no arms. He thinks failing is cool.

Bowser Junior

Tanner seems to be good friends with Bowser Junior, thinking he is cool like Joseph.


Usually, he bullies Cody by calling him a nerd and four eyes. Cody thinks that's a medical disorder.


  • "Dude, your a nerd!"
  • "No, you're four eyes!"
  • "Because you're a nerd dude!"
  • "So my parents are divorced."   
  • "I'm gonna punch you in the face, dude!"   
  • "Aw, dude, I need to do something to stop this test. (sees a fire alarm) Oh, yeah dude!"
  • "Aw, dude, he fell!"
  • "Dude, I didn't want to pass anyway!"
  • "Aw, sh**, DUDE!"
  • "I'm seeing some crazy s**t dude!"


  • He pulled the fire alarm and reintroduced Brooklyn T. Guy in "Bowser Junior's Summer School 5".
  • In the first episode of Bowser Junior's Summer School, Tanner is voiced by Lovell. However, in following episodes of the series he is voiced by Lance.
  • Bully Bill can be seen as the replacement of Tanner due to them both being enemies from the Mario franchise that have been portrayed as bullies. They both also tend to pick on 1 specific person and call them a name. Tanner calls Paul "no arms" and Bully Bill calls Jeffy "retard".
  • Cody possibly replaced him as being Junior's other friend.
