* Dekar in the ''Franchise/{{Lufia}}'' series, due largely to being an utter IdiotHero. His stupidity tends to earn him just as many awesome moments as stupid moments, though.

** He also has a hidden cameo in ''[=MGS2=]''. You can listen to him talking to himself in the bathroom, complaining about how getting knocked out and left lying in the prison floor gave him an even worse diarrhea. Poor guy.

** TheYearOfLuigi reverses this somewhat, with ''VideoGame/NewSuperLuigiU'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld Luigi Bros.]]'' and ''Dr. Luigi'' being basically ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU'', ''VideoGame/MarioBros'' and ''[[DrMario Dr. Mario Online Rx]]'' respectively with little to no acknowledgement of Mario and a greater emphasis on Luigi, even having the ''implication'' of Mario, the word "Bros.", crossed out in green paint on Luigi U's title. Other games in the celebration, ''VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon'' and ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam'', don't remove Mario any more than their predecessors but give Luigi particular love by [[spoiler: having him more or less overcome his [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes fear of ghosts]] and having [[BigBad Bowser]] remember his name for once]].

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'': By the events of the Fourth era, the Orcs and the Dunmer have become this. The Orcs were forced at swordpoint by the Bretons to officially renounce the kingdom of Orsinium and assimilate into High Rock. Only a few Orcs still live independently in destitute, scattered "strongholds", scorned by all. The Dunmer have it even worse: between the Red Mountain erupting, Vvardenfell's subsequent annihilation, and the rest of the province being conquered by Black Marsh, most Dunmer have had to flee elsewhere, even if it means becoming second-class citizens. Hadvar notes at the start of the game that the gods really have abandoned the Dunmer people.



* Michiru in ''VisualNovel/GrisaiaNoKajitsu'' takes a fair amount of abuse, but also has her own role in the group and actually seeks out the ridicule she receives. However, by ''VisualNovel/GrisaiaNoRakuen'' her role in the group has largely been supplanted by Amane and she's not trying to be ridiculous [[AttentionWhore for the sake of attention]] anymore, meaning she's mainly just used as the butt of jokes.

** On the villainous side of things, poor Metal Gear RAY. In ''[=MGS2=]'', it's portrayed as a brand-new model that nonetheless gets trashed en masse by Raiden (until CutsceneIncompetence kicks in, of course). It comes back in ''[=MGS4=]'' solely to get its ass handed to it by a long-obsolete and half-destroyed REX. It makes another appearance in ''Rising'' as a WarmUpBoss and is cut to ribbons for its trouble in the [[Awesome/MetalGearRisingRevengeance "Rules of Nature" sequence]] by a Raiden who hasn't yet received his cybernetic upgrade. Poor, poor RAY.

* Yosuke Hanamura from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''. First he found out his love interest didn't love him, but he found this out [[spoiler:AFTER she died!]] Also, if you follow his Social Link, he gets complains at his job from bitchy girls. And don't remind him of the countless times Chie kicked him in the groin, and the hot springs incident as well. Though its justified to some people, as Yosuke has the unfortunate tendency to stick his foot in his mouth quite often and is a bit of a JerkAss (ultimately good, but quite oblivious to it).
** Every boys got their share of ButtMonkey-ness. Especially in the Camping Trip, where Yosuke and the protagonist tasted the terror that is "[[MasochistsMeal Mystery Food X]]" after expecting good results. Then at the night, Kanji Tatsumi is still teased by the boys about his... [[CampGay err... issues]] and spends the whole knocked out by the girls while trying to prove about his 'manliness'. The next day, all boys got kicked into a waterfall, which their SadistTeacher puked to from above.

* Link is a Butt Monkey to Midna for the first half of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', a Butt Monkey to Linebeck and Oshus (and occasionally Tetra) in the first half of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaPhantomHourglass'' and a Butt Monkey to ''everyone'' in the first half of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker''. After that, he always gets so {{Badass}}, that nobody even ''dares'' anymore to put him down in the slightest possible way.
