: This just a rewrite on Butt-Monkey
: I agree that the page seems wrong somehow. You're right that it encroaches on Butt-Monkey
. I vote for a cut.
: This page was created as a descriptor for a plot device, not the character. Also, whereas the Butt-Monkey
is somebody we laugh AT because they are built to be bullied and laughed at by the cast AND the audience, he or she who suffers the Trauma Conga Line
is a tragic figure worthy of sympathy
, not ridicule.
