* ''Webcomic/ScaryGoRound'' tends to be ... whimsical ... with its characters, but they mostly have their ups as well as downs. But then, in 2017, the "Hard Yards" storyline introduced a massive {{Retcon}} which revealed that the very young Scout Jones has achieved victimhood on a cosmic scale, albeit largely through her own folly . The very young Scout sees her parents' marriage break up. Then, [[spoiler:as she grows up, she apparently acquires a series of half-sisters who she can't stand.]] Then, probably because she's [[spoiler:[[YouCantFightFate trying to change the past]] and actually creating a StableTimeLoop, the time travelling adult Scout sees all her plans defeated by a series of weird accidents and coincidences, and realizes that she's ''caused'' at least two things she set out to prevent -- her father leaving her mother, and then him proposing to Shelley. In a last throw of the dice, she tries to kill Shelley... And, well, anyone whose [[http://www.scarygoround.com/?date=20171218 plan is foiled by ''Desmond Fishman'',]] even accidentally, is really having a bad life]].

--> '''Alex:''' I've noticed something recently. I don't know precisely how to put it. Whenever I'm about to accomplish something, or to defeat something, or to accomplish something great, something ends up messing it up. Like when I went to shoot Kain, or when I went to open the last treasure chest up.... It's like.... It's like someone or something is conspiring against me... Making things harder for me, on purpose. It's like Videoland is trying to...well, mock me.
--> '''Bob:''' Are you sure you're not just being paranoid?
--> '''Manual:''' You've got the book (again!) What wondrous powers have you failed to unlock you stupid, stupid boy?
--> '''Alex:''' Yeah, I'm pretty sure.
--> '''Bob:''' Right. My bad.

* Hannelore from ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'', with elements of TheWoobie.TheWoobie, although in recent years she's gotten better (and drifted out of focus) with Clinton taking her place as the target of the universe's abuse.

* In ''Webcomic/StarMares'', an unlucky red pony joined the Imperial Navy because she believed her cutie mark meant she was supposed to see the stars. [[CirclingBirdies That wasn't quite what it meant.]] When the story transferred off of her ship, the author invented a nearly-identical twin sister for her to take over the task.

* The character Head-leg (a head on a leg, go figure) from ''{{Irritability}}'' was literally made by EvilGenius Exoth to be tortured and die in horrifying ways over and over again. Exoth just doesn't like poor Head-leg.

The June 4 2013 strip, number 750 (NSFW), perhaps marks the point beyond which ''nobody'' can classify Gary simply as the comic's butt monkey. Having vanished, [[AdultFear a little worryingly]], from his apartment, Gary turns up [[spoiler:in ''{{Paris}}, in the company of a naked fashion model'']], looking understandably fairly cheerful. Meanwhile, most of the rest of the cast are suffering break-ups and traumas. Which said, he does still suffer occasional uncomfortable incidents, even on that trip (see [[http://www.sandraontherocks.com/strips-sotr/work_my_ass_off this strip]] from SpinOff comic ''Webcomic/SandraOnTheRocks'') -- but everybody's life has its ups and downs.

* More often than not, when Qi Fang appears in ''Webcomic/TheirStory'', he'll be subject to some sort of misfortune. It more often than not has something to do with [[LikeBrotherAndSister Sun Jing]].
