* ''East Germany'' gets this role in ''Film/BridgeOfSpies''. The Americans treat the entire nation as nothing more than Soviet stooges, and the Soviets themselves couldn't care less about the East Germans' opinions.



* In ''Film/SmilesOfASummerNight'', the others keep making fun of Henrik for studying theology and being romantically inept.

* ''Film/MeetTheParents'' (and its sequel, ''MeetTheFockers''): These films are ''all about'' making poor Greg Focker [[spoiler:actually, Gaylord]] as miserable as possible, having ''everything'' that could possibly go wrong, go wrong when he's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin meeting his girlfriend's parents]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/IShotJesseJames'': After killing UsefulNotes/JesseJames, Robert Ford can't catch a break at all. He doesn't get the money the reward promised, and people now try to shoot him in the street because of his reputation. On top of all of this, his girlfriend [[LoveInterest Cynthy]] dances around trying to marry him, then [[spoiler: dumps him for [[TheRival John Kelley]]]]. Even if [[JerkassWoobie he's a bit brash]], the world still seems overly harsh on Robert Ford.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/VetHard'': [[UnfortunateNames Vuk]] is Milo's "[[MistakenNationality Yugoslavian]]" cousin who is dumped by Milo at Bennie's. Vuk is a PsychoElectro who obsessive-compulsively plays with electricity, causing a lot of havoc on the other characters (who don't want anything to do with him in the first place). He is repeatedly beaten up by Bennie. The end of the movie takes it UpToEleven, when [[spoiler: he is already wearing casts all over his body, ''and then'' run over with Bennie's car]].

* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Two Towers'': Gimli seems to always be the butt of the comic relief.

* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Two Towers'': Gimli seems to always be the butt of the comic relief. The Fellowship of the Ring: in the mines of Moria, Gimli explicitly says not to throw him, but he ''is'' thrown across a crevice - and upon landing, grabbed by the beard (all justified, as he would have died otherwise). Actually, more in general in Middle Earth the Dwarves as a race were pretty much Butt Monkeys; this ranged from them having terrible table manners, the Elves clearly looking down upon them, to their women having beards and being indistinguishable from the men.

* ''{{Film/Boyhood}}'': The film's plot is based on this trope. Mason Jr. is being abused, mistreated or bullied by people (mostly women and girls) which includes his bratty sister Samantha, his stepdad Bill, his mother Olivia (mainly at the end who screamed at him ''just'' for leaving home to go to college) and a bundle of many others who aren't identified by name or only appear for seconds.

* Park Gang-du from ''Film/TheHost''. He's already a loser by the time the film starts; his wife left him, his siblings don't respect him, and his daughter gets abducted by a monster.

And as though that wasn't enough, he's targeted for a virus ([[spoiler: which turns out to be nonexistent]]) and while in the hospital, gets tissue samples painfully removed from his neck, and needles injected into his head so they could probe the virus.
