** Jean-Pierre Polnareff in Part 3. Very often the butt of his friends' jokes, and very often the first to be subjected to an enemy Stand or even non-Stand-related slapstick. One of the biggest examples is when he finds out that [[spoiler:Avdol, whose "death" he felt responsible for, was actually alive the whole time; after reuniting with him, the overjoyed Polnareff presents him to Jotaro, Joseph, and Kakyoin...only to find out that all three of them already knew he was alive (Joseph and Jotaro knew from the beginning, and Kakyoin found out the day after Avdol's supposed death), and ''decided not to tell Polnareff about it'' for fear that he would accidentally reveal it to the enemy, leaving Polnareff as the ''only'' one in the dark despite knowing how broken up he was about it.

** Havok gets his far share of suffering. The fore-mentioned girlfriend actually [[spoiler: turned out to be Lust who paralyzed him from the waist down and Roy had to burn his wounds to keep him from bleeding to death. I'm pretty sure that was the end of that relationship]].

** Hell, TheAbridgedSeries even has the ''Krillin Owned Count'' (a running gag where anytime Krillin is beaten up, disrespected[[note]]in episode 2, Master Roshi told him to shut up after Krillin blamed him for letting Piccolo escape with Gohan[[/note]], or acts like a loser [[note]]in episode 13 from season 2, Krillin gets owned after failing to come up with a witty one-liner[[/note]], a little counter appears featuring a silhouette of Krillin with a Band-Aid on his head and the words: "Krillin Owned Count" followed by the number of times he's been owned. As of this writing, Krillin has been owned 29 times -- the most recent one being Krillin finding out his new girlfriend is a government agent sent to bust him on insurance fraud charges, then telling him that he has to pay back all the money he spent on her out of his own pocket. Also, in the first episode, Goku compares Radditz's power level as stronger than "Krillin's losing streak" (to which Krillin replies: "You know, you guys are the reason I go to therapy").

* Alba from ''Senyuu'' is this for pretty much the entirety of volume 1, however it significantly decreases in volume 2, seeing as he [[TookALevelInBadass Took A Level In Badass]], but the amount of physical abuse he goes through due to the sadistic tendencies of the solder Ros are definitely something to behold. Other characters both physically and verbally abuse him, intentionally or not. He was even [[spoiler:killed by Dezember]] before being brought back by [[spoiler:Ros after revealed his identity as the hero Creashion]]. Some other examples of abuse include Ros stabbing him with a knife on their way out of the cave in episode 2, Ros calling Alba useless only for Ruki to scold him then begin listing many ways Alba is useless in episode 6, and Alles accidentally shooting Alba out of the cannon of the bike in episode 19(?).

* While it's not apparent in the anime, LightNovel/SwordArtOnline has Kirito show shades of this occasionally. Made most apparent in the supplementary material for the Blu-Ray releases, ''Sword Art Offline''. To note, Kirito suffers multiple embarassing, frightening or painful situations. For instance, having Asuna act like a Yandere, getting stabbed by Asuna (on no less than four seperate occasions,getting beaten up by Leafa thrice, getting shot by Sinon, constantly being either insulted or made fun of, and, most strangely, [[ArsonMurderandJayWalking getting an envelope lodged in his head]]. Kirito himself lampshades it when the physical abuse slows down in the second season, but the psychological abuse doesn't. Specifically in Season 2, Episode 2:

* One could argue Simon of Anime/{{Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann}} fits this trope well. Early in the series, he [[spoiler: contributes to the death of his best friend/brother figure]]. Then, years later, [[spoiler: his wife-to-be is kidnapped, and he has to fight to rescue her, and all of humanity. Once he succeeds, they're married, and she promptly vanishes.]] The series ends with [[spoiler: humans (and Viral, now immortal) going out to explore the galaxy. Simon is, by this point, an old man, alone, and will probably be forgotten by almost everyone before long.]]
