* ''Transhuman'' by JonathanHickman has a group of literal butt-monkeys. That is they are supposedly the showcase for a new type of genetic modification designed to give you superpowers, yet upon being sent to recapture a group of escaped, enhanced intelligence monkeys, they are captured and anally raped these monkeys live on TV. People make jokes about this, even to their faces, for the rest of their lives. The genetic modifications eventually have horrible side effects as well.

* What's the most thankless job at [[MarvelComics Marvel's]] biggest newspaper, the ''Daily Bugle'', the guy who has the biggest reason to shout DudeWheresMyRespect? The guy who writes obituaries! Seriously! His name is Dilbert Trilby, and in ''Spider-Man Unlimited'' #1 after ComicBook/DoctorOctopus was killed (and subsequently resurrected by the Hand) he had a meltdown that you just ''have'' to sympathize with at the prospect of having to retract an obituary of the villain that he claimed was Pulitzer material, ranting in despair to Ben Ulrich how he has files full of past ones he had written on guys like ComicBook/SpiderMan, [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk the Hulk]], and ComicBook/TheFantasticFour. ("Don't even get me started on the ComicBook/XMen!" he moans). all of which he painstakingly worked on after researching the lives of the subjects, only to have to retract them. In a universe where DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist, someone like him just can't catch a break.

* After the controversial ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' storyline in Marvel Comics, several heroes who were on the side of registering metahumans were very unpopular among the fans and turned into Butt Monkeys. Tony Stark, leader of the pro-regs, spent every guest appearance for a month or two afterwards being yelled at and slapped around by other heroes, including getting [[NoHoldsBarredBeatDown beaten up]] by THOR; Tigra, who spied on the anti-regs while being pro-reg the entire time, was shot and beaten by the Hood while barely putting up a fight, constantly screaming "AIIEE", and being videotaped. She also joined [[ComicBook/YoungAvengers Stature]] in being kidnapped by Puppet Master, almost sold into slavery, and being forced to fight her rescuer, Ms. Marvel (and losing). Interestingly, she also has a relationship with Hank Pym around this time.

Tigra, who spied on the anti-regs while being pro-reg the entire time, was shot and beaten by the Hood while barely putting up a fight, constantly screaming "AIIEE", and being videotaped.

** Speedball is a bit of a [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] simply for his ridiculous power. He's often referenced, at least in the Ultimate line of comics, where he doesn't even EXIST.

* Speedball of ComicBook/NewWarriors is a bit of a writers' punching bag simply for his ridiculous power. He's often referenced, at least in the Ultimate line of comics, where he doesn't even EXIST. And even though he temporarily became Penance, his angst was still treated as a joke in some appearances.

** In the Ultimate comics, CaptainAmerica gave him a serious beatdown for beating up his wife. Just an example.
