* 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 trashed and is usually in the wrong place at the wrong time -- namely in the middle of Bayonetta fighting a load of angels. And he gets threatened with a GroinAttack about once a game. Life really, really hates this guy.

* The refree in the Wii version of PunchOut is this, never being able to catch a break. Among other things, he got beat up several times by certain boxers, such as [[AxCrazy Aran Ryan]], [[BaldOfEvil Bald Bull]], and [[{{Eagleland}} Super Macho Man]], and was greatly humiliated by [[ScaryBlackMan Mr. Sandman]] for no apparent reason.

* The ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ'' series has Hibiki Kamishiro. He's effectively a scapegoat for [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Sôsuke Sagara]] ([[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Kaname Chidori]] chews Hibiki out) and [[Anime/MacrossFrontier Alto Saotome]]. In the "Sayonara, Idol" DownloadableContent for ''Jigoku-hen'', [[Anime/DancougarNova Johnny Barnett]] plays from a clip from a movie starring [[Anime/DancougarNova Eida Rossa]], in hopes of having Hibiki understand her charm as a IdolSinger. It winds up with him mentally broken with DullEyesOfUnhappiness saying "Chu! Chu! Chu! Chu!"[[note]]The Japanese equivalent of a kissing sound[[/note]] [[MadnessMantra again and again]].

* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars''
** As far as treatment by other characters go in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsV'', [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsV Soji]] tends to get the short end of the stick compared to Chitose. This is especially true in regards to his success (or lack thereof) with women.

*** [[VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney Apollo Justice]] somehow manages to get even less respect than Phoenix ever did. Every character seems to go out of their way to mock him in some manner whever possible. [[spoiler: Even his own mother!]] To be fair, [[spoiler: his mother took on a different persona (due to an accident that made her lose her memory) so she had no clue that she was talking directly to her son until she regains her memories at the end of the game.]] Even you, the player, can essentially mock him: present the Fish to him when you get the chance in the DLC case of ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies Dual Destinies]]''. At one point, someone ''throws a grown man at him''. Accidentally, but still.
*** Athena Cykes, by [[SlapstickKnowsNoGender female protagonist's standard]], is prone to AmusingInjuries such as getting hit with a ballistic volleyball and falling down some stairs. She's also notable for having one of the widest ranges of cartoony expressions PlayedForLaughs. Like other main characters, she is not immune to a prosecutor's verbal and nonverbal assaults, the judge's swaying remarks, and witnesses' weird antics. [[spoiler: Though she is evidently more [[TheWoobie emotionally fragile]] than other characters, to the points she invoke multiple HeroicBSOD, she is rather quickly at brouncing back from all the damages she receives.]]

*** His 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...
*** And then there's Larry Butz, Phoenix and Edgeworth's old school friend and UnluckyEverydude to the extreme, who can never seem to hold a steady job or a girlfriend throughout the course of three games. He seems to be a danger magnet, and everybody in his circle often discredits the things he says, to the point where Phoenix and friends invented their own saying about him: "When something smells, it's usually the Butz." He's perhaps the only witness to be called an idiot in court.

*** Not even inanimate objects are completely safe. The [[PricelessMingVase Kurain Sacred Urn]], most valued object of Kurain Village (Maya's hometown), gets broken a ''lot''. Pearl accidentally hits it with a ball in the second game, and scrambles the writing on its front as she glues it back together (from "AMI" to "I AM"). Adrian Andrews drops it on the floor ''and'' spills paint on the pieces in the third game, though she at least gets the writing back into proper order. And at the very end of the third game, [[spoiler:we see a picture showing a very young Mia and Maya Fey... reassembling the pot, revealing it's been broken quite a bit before.]]

* The Black Baron (stop starin') of ''MadWorld''. He introduces the various [[BloodyHilarious violent]] {{Minigame}}s, and the introduction inevitably ends in his death, only for him to come back unscathed to introduce the next one. [[spoiler:Although [[WhosLaughingNow he is the]] FinalBoss, so it could just be he's [[MadeOfIron a lot tougher than he looks]].]]

** Kokona from ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' gets the worst of every single bad thing in the story. 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. Worst part is until Osana is implemented, she's stuck like that.

* In ''VideoGame/EtrianOdyssey 2 Untold'', we have marksman Flavio who is constantly made the butt of many, many jokes through the game by almost the entire cast, be they seniors, children, and many times indirectly from Arianna. This is probably retribution for all those years as a kid when he used to be an annoying CryingWolf to the Midgard Library.
