The present study aims at exploring the associations between Bullying, Anger and Theory of Mind (ToM). The sample consisted of 124 5th & 6th graders, who completed a self-report scale measuring Proactive and Reactive Overt Aggression, eight dimensions of Anger and were also tested in eighteen advanced Theory of Mind (ToM) Tasks. Results revealed that boys reported higher Reactive Overt Aggression and they achieved higher performance in the vocabulary scale of the Hellenic WISC-III than girls. Sixth graders reported higher Reactive Overt Aggression, Trait Anger Temperament, Trait Anger Reaction, Anger Expression (anger-out) and scored higher in advanced Strange Stories ToM tasks. Proactive and Reactive Overt Aggression were positively and significantly associated with the most of Anger’s dimensions while weren’t significantly associated with ToM. However, ToM was positively and significantly correlated with Trait Anger Reaction and inward Expression of Anger (anger-in). A regression analysis indicated that Reactive Overt Aggression and State Anger Feelings were significant predictors of Proactive Overt Aggression. Finally, Proactive Overt Aggression, Gender, outward Expression of Anger and Trait Anger Temperament were significant predictors of Reactive Overt Aggression
