** Doofenshmirtz arguably has it worse. [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood His parents weren't there when he was born]], he was forced to be a lawn gnome, and his brother is the favourite of his mother. However, this is all played for laughs since Doofenshmirtz is the bad guy (even though he's more pathetic than evil).

** Candace. She gets trampled, attacked, lost, falls down, scared half to death, and just generally suffers way too much. However, she usually gets the boy (Jeremy) in the end, so it's hard to feel ''too'' sorry for her. Throw in the fact she never succeeds at busting her titular brothers and you have one of the most notorious butt monkeys.

* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'': Dexter suffers this greatly in alot of crazy forms. For example, his entire lab is completely destroyed, the earth is destroyed, Dexter is turned into a sandwich, etc. He also gets into big trouble from his mom and dad as well. Especially his backbone-lacking teenage/young adult self in "Ego Trip", who works for Mandark designing cubicles in the future.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/EvilConCarne'': General Skarr has been zapped, electrified, burned, blasted by lasers, attacked by animals, and blown up many times throughout the series. And it was only [[UpToEleven cranked up to 11]], in season 2, where episodes dedicated entire sideplots to focused on him being tortured.

* Cat of ''WesternAnimation/{{CatDog}}'' is constantly dragged around on Dog's misadventures literally! Not to mention, he receives bigger beatings from the Greasers than his brother. It's probably worth noting that about half the time it's LaserGuidedKarma though.

** Chuckie is very often this, due to his lack of confidence, though not to Angelica's extent.

** ''Squidward Tentacles''. Full stop. The worst things tend to happen to him, including but not limited to being: shot out of a cannon, doused with gas and set on fire by the Krusty Krab's security system...''twice'', squished by a boulder, stung mercilessly by jellyfish, stampeded by a crowd, repeatedly attacked by a sea bear, zapped multiple times by the Flying Dutchman, skinned alive, cut in half with a giant pair of scissors from nowhere, gruesomely separated from the toenail he suddenly has, and blown up by various means on numerous occasions. He seems generally hated by everyone in Bikini Bottom, including inanimate objects - in "My Pretty Seahorse", Squidward willfully ignores Spongebob's baiting, telling himself 'don't say anything, Squidward, remember your karma'. Karma's response? The front wheel breaks off Squidward's bicycle for no apparent reason causing him to fly off the seat, fall down a cliff, and ''explode'' [[https://youtu.be/0waJjf-ki34?t=3]]. Only five episodes ("Band Geeks", "Suction Cup Symphony" ,"Love That Squid", "Enchanted Tiki Dreams", and "House Fancy") have ever truly ended up in his favor - and even then, "Band Geeks" saw him constantly humiliated and nearly impaled and "House Fancy" included the notorious toenail incident.

** Spongebob also has his moments in being a ButtMonkey. Don't believe it, watch "Scaredy Pants", "The Chaperone", "Jellyfish Jam", "Rock Bottom", "Grandma's Kisses", "Pre-Hibernation Week" and "Can You Spare a Dime?". In the last one, he gets forced to put on a maid's uniform and serve lemonade to Squidward in his ''own'' pineapple home!
** Patrick has his moments in "Neptune's Spatula" and "Suds".
** Mr. Krabs has his moments in "Squeaky Boots", "Mid-Life Crustacean" and the first theatrical SpongeBob movie.

* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' is a universe of ButtMonkeys, whenever they deserve it or not:
** Ed, Edd n Eddy ('''especially''' Eddy), as almost everyone on the show hates them, they are constantly humiliated from their attempts to earn respect from their peers and doomed to fail at every money-making venture they've ever made. Particularly Eddy has it the worst, usually he brings the trouble onto himself and more often than not it also affects Ed and Double D.
** Jimmy is EXTREMELY accident-prone. The early episodes heavily lampshaded this. Virtually every scene he was in, he was sporting anything from bandages to arm casts and a neck brace from unseen injuries.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''
** MEG GRIFFIN is one of the most '''''INFAMOUS''''' examples in Western Animation. She goes through all kinds of crap, primarily being ignored, neglected, and ridiculed by her own family. At first she was merely a BrattyTeenageDaughter indirectly humiliated by her family's well-intentioned bumbling or quirkiness. This evolved into the entire universe growing a profound hatred of her, with practically everyone - even her own family - showing a casual disregard for her well-being. Fortunately, it is starting to get toned down since season eight onward.
