* Yamcha from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' is one of the most extreme examples. He died from a single Saibaman, who caught him off-guard. From then on Yamcha suffers permanent CantCatchUp along with the rest of the human cast, loses his girlfriend of 15 years to a big jerk (who was partly responsible for Yamcha's Saibaman death), and almost entirely stops training. Except, that is, at the moment he does finally decide to do something helpful, he's the first to instantly suffer a near-fatal Dr. Gero salute through the chest. From this point on in the series, if he's ever shown, he's often commenting on the situation or lamenting about his life, having self-admitted later on to have completely given up ever trying to ever even spar again. Even his TrueCompanions [[WithFriendsLikeThese aren't really]] shown [[NoSympathy]] to be empathetic]] to him by this point in the series. As Yamcha is shown to have done nothing nothing to deserve this, and nothing good happens to him to balance it out, this can come off as unnecessarily mean spirited to some viewers.

** Even in ''Manga/DragonBall'', Yamcha wasn't exactly lucky. He smashed crotch first onto his opponent's head once. [[GroinAttack CROTCH FIRST]]. Which was made even worse by the fact that his opponent was a nerdy guy in glasses and a pocket protector ''possessed by God''. Hitting below the belt is usually against the rules in that particular tournament, but Kami was [[ObfuscatingStupidity acting like it was an accident]] and he was a ''nerd in glasses'' at the freakin' World Martial Arts Tournament. The [[CombatCommentator announcer]] let it slide.

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', Kakei is fairly respected by the members of the team who have the capacity for respect, but he's always interfering in fights as the TeamDad between the more wild Braves, and often as not ends up knocked out by them or caught in the crossfire of [[TeamMom Rokuro's]] sonic blasts whenever he drops by to settle things. He also seems to suffer LaserGuidedKarma for his conservatism and sexism, as he is the only male character who has to deal with AttemptedRape and MarshmallowHell from female villains.

* Being a deconstruction of the FightingSeries PlayedForLaughs, ''MutekiKanbanMusume'' deconstructs this trope with Akihiko and Kankuro, two {{Nice Guy}}s that become {{Butt Monkey}}s for no other reason than that the rest of the cast are {{Arrogant Kung Fu Guy}}s.

* Manabu Kuchiki from ''{{Genshiken}};'' when he joins the Genshiken, he becomes the frequent recipient of Saki's violence, once simply for being there. The others have him do grunt work at Comifest, leading to him going a entire day buying their doujinshi without food or water. However, unlike most Butt Monkeys, he entirely ''deserves'' it, knows that, and accepts it all without complaint. In fact, he seems to like it; early on, he cheerfully declares himself to be a "shameless servant", and his masochistic streak causes him to smile whenever the Genshiken mistreat him. Except when they tied him to a lamp in volume 7 of the manga to keep him from peeping on the girls' bathing. ''Then'' he complained... for about ten seconds. And it was mostly acting.

** Sakamoto has to endure just as much tormenting as Nano, if not more as Hakase seems extra careless around him. [[spoiler: Prior to his appearance in the series proper, he was Nakamura-sensei's cat Tashio, and he was treated poorly then as well (getting fed hot soup, having said soup poured on his head, bathed in scalding hot water, and getting trapped in a cage are a few examples).]] He comes to the conclusion that his life sucks no matter where he goes.
