Seymour Skinner, formerly known as Armin Tamzarian, is the interim principal of Springfield Elementary School, and a stereotypical educational bureaucrat. He struggles to control the crumbling school and is constantly engaged in a battle against its inadequate resources, apathetic and bitter teachers, and often rowdy and unenthusiastic students, Bart Simpson being a standout example. A strict disciplinarian, Skinner has an uptight, militaristic attitude that stems from his years in the United States Army as a Green Beret, which included service in the Vietnam War, where he achieved the rank of a sergeant, according to his rank insignia.
In the game
In Bart's second game, he was seen in a room, that looked like his principal's office. Bart tricked his principal buying his phone charger for one dollar, when the principal saw that his own charger was missing.
- Skinner's room was the same as in Bart's first game.
- The charger was in the electricity, when in the first game Bart had to find the charger and plug it in the room's electricity.
