*** Gumshoe's love interest, Maggey Byrde (introduced in ''Justice for All''), has a perpetual streak of bad luck, which culminated in her being accused of murder on ''three'' separate occasions. Byrde lampshades this a lot too, and considering [[MeaningfulName her name]] [[PunnyName is a pun on the magpie bird,]] known to bring bad luck, she's practically the female version of Larry. When she was six months old, she apparently fell off the balcony of her ''9th floor'' apartment...

* Chickens in ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}'' only exist to for painful slapstick. In-game, Pip's ultimate turns enemies into helpless chickens for his allies to slaughter. In the trailers, the only time a chicken shows up is to get blown up or smacked around.

** The [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmer (Dark Elves) have reached this status between the events of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''. The events of ''Morrowind'' stripped them of their guardian {{Physical God}}s, which had the delayed but direct effect of causing the rogue moon Baar Dau (which the Dunmer Tribunal deity Vivec froze in place after [[MadGod Sheogorath]] hurled it as his {{Egopolis}} in a past age) to [[ColonyDrop resume its fall]] which caused [[ChekhovsVolcano Red Mountain to erupt]], rending all of Vvardenfell and much of mainland Morrowind uninhabitable due to choking ash. Then, their former SlaveRace (the [[LizardFolk Argonians) invaded, capturing much of what remained of habitable Morrowind. The Dunmer people were forced to flee, with most settling on the barren frozen island of Solstheim or in Skyrim, where they are treated as second-class citizens (at best) by the native Nords. At the beginning of ''Skyrim'', Hadvar even notes that "the gods really have abandoned" the Dunmer people.

* ''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.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'': By ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** The [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]] have long suffered this as a race. Their bestial appearance and "barbaric" culture (as it is perceived by
the events other races of the Fourth era, Tamriel) make them frequent victims of FantasticRacism. Several times the Orcs and the Dunmer have become this. The tried to unite and create their own city-state known as Orsinium, but each time, their neighboring nations (the Bretons of High Rock and Redguards of Hammerfell) have forced them to abandon it. By the 4th Era, the Orcs were forced at swordpoint by the Bretons to officially renounce the kingdom of Orsinium and assimilate into High Rock. Rock as slaves in all but name. Only a few Orcs Orc tribes still live independently in destitute, scattered "strongholds", scorned by all. Notably, their patron deity, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] Malacath, teaches them to [[IronButtMonkey take these trials in stride]], as he preaches "strength through adversity."

* Kokona Haruka from ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'', who is the default rival of the playtest versions of the game until Osana Najimi gets put in. As a result, she gets the worst of every single bad thing you can do to her. You can murder her, get other students to bully her, drown her, electrocute her, burn her alive, push her off the roof, torture her into killing herself, drive her to suicide, poison her, get her expelled, frame her for murder...the poor girl just can't catch a break. She only gets two major options that result in a happy ending -- one is the Matchmaker option, which sets her up with a boy other than Senpai, and the other is doing her a good turn by [[spoiler:kidnapping the daughter of a loan shark who her father is in debt to and convincing the loan shark to void everyone's debts to him]]. And at the end of the last option, you have the opportunity to betray her and drag her down into your TortureCellar. Poor girl.

Worst part is until Osana is implemented, she's stuck like that.

** [=YandereDev=] also does NOT
like that.Midori Gurin, the green-haired girl on the roof of Akademi High, who is only there to kill so you can dump blood on someone. She's basically the embodiment of everyone that likes to send the Dev useless emails, and thus, the Dev does not like her, even killing her in some of the update vids.

* Enzo from ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', who is supposed to be a rather feared member of the underworld, but unfortunately lives in a world with witches, demons and angels which puts him squarely in the role of comic relief. He frequently gets his car wrecked and is usually in the wrong place at the wrong time -- namely in the middle of Bayonetta fighting a load of angels. And he narrowly misses [[GroinAttacked getting his balls crushed]] about once a game. He's so much of a Butt Monkey that he's featured on the Stone Award, the very worst level award you can get.
