* Mary Jane Watson, the title character of ''[[FanFic/UltimateSpiderWoman Ultimate Spider-Woman: Change With The Light]]''. She grows up in a broken home, has constant money problems, has trouble keeping her grades up because of her TripleShifter tendencies, her parents' boyfriends tend to hate her, becomes the target of a public hate campaign-with threats of sexual violence-against her alter ego, has had more than one villain become a superpowered StalkerWithACrush, often misses out on good acting and modelling work because of other commitments, has been fired or nearly fired from multiple jobs due to showing up late, and is plagued with constant feelings of guilt and frustration stemming from it all.

* Mary Jane Watson, the title character of ''[[FanFic/UltimateSpiderWoman Ultimate Spider-Woman: Change With The Light]]'', really gets burned by this trope. She grew up in a broken home, got kicked out of the house along with her BrokenBird mother by her abusive father when she was 17 and ended up becoming something of a BrokenBird herself and withdrawing into an angry shell. Other misfortunes have been the need to try and find acting and modelling jobs to support herself and pay for her mother's therapy, being sexually harassed by her employers, getting fired from her steady waitressing job for constantly showing up late because she has to fight supervillains as Spider-Woman, nearly being forced to drop out of college after her father deliberately short-changes her college payments, having her grades end up in the toilet and nearly going on academic probation because of her TripleShifter tendencies, having her backpack stolen by a purse snatcher and getting drenched by a passing car, causing her to lose her dream acting job, attracting a StalkerWithACrush who turns himself into a PsychoElectro to try and profess his sick "love" to her before turning into an even more psychotic {{Yandere}} after she rejects him, having a public hate campaign directed against her as Spider-Woman that has several of its members [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty who want to show what a "real" man is]], nearly losing another acting job because of her lateness, failing several of her midterm exams after a particularly bruising battle with a supervillain, losing her apartment after she's fired from her waitressing job, and suffering a HeroicBSOD when everything comes crashing down...

* Spike, from ''FriendshipIsWitchcraft'', is very much a butt-monkey. So much so, in fact, that every character has him listed as a dislike in Dragone Baby Gone, and in Read it and Sleep, Spike falls off the roof and breaks both his legs. After disregarding him, Applejack inadvertently drops a log on him, with other instances of disregard or hatred for him throughout the show.

* In ''FanFic/ThisBites'', Ironically, [[MadeOfPlasticine Cross]] is this to the Straw Hats, especially after his antics which oft lead him being the target of either Nami or Vivi's [[MegatonPunch ire]]. However, ever since taking Dr. Kureha's [[SuperEmpowering vitamins]], Cross has upgraded to IronButtMonkey, where he has withstood many an attack that should've killed him. Cross even lampshades it:
---> '''Cross:''' Did it say bad things about the past few weeks that an impact that should have, by all rights, split my head like an egg only hurt a little more than a common bump? Yes, by ''god'' yes.

** Shinji, in the omakes. In the stories proper, he sometimes suffers problems and is a NonActionGuy outside of the Evangelion, but he is useful either by fighting with or without his giant robot or by giving Asuka emotional stability and a sympathetic ear. On the omakes, he is often the victim of the pranks of the author (who is not above to tell Asuka Shinji stole her underwear).
** Asuka also suffers from this in the omakes. Either thugs accuse her from breaking the fourth wall, or she has very embarassing moments where she has to perform heroic deeds as wearing a ridiculously tiny outfit or Shinji clings to her leg to prevent himself from falling to the ground and takes an accidental peek at her underwear.

* From a meta standpoint, Mass Effect itself is one of these. Almost every time it is involved in a crossover, it is on the receiving end of a curbstomp battle and belittled afterwards.

* in the fics of Creator/AAPessimal, Assassin Jocasta Wiggs (seen in canon treading almost-water in Sam Vimes' dunnikin) is invariably dropped into, doused with, or smothered in, shit. Her nickname and operating codename in Assassin circles is "Mucky Pup".

* Done for comedy in ''AVeryPotterMusical''. Ron and Dumbledore repeatedly harp on Hermione for being a know-it-all, buzz kill, and "[[HollywoodHomely ugly]]." She's the only student in the cast who ever loses points for her house (except Harry, once), often for things that other characters are doing, flagrantly, at the same time as her. Harry is the only one relatively nice to her... because he needs her to do his homework, research for the first task, and everything else he's too lazy to do. This lightens up in the second act, though there's still a few jokes made at her expense.
