* ButtMonkey: Sjakie, despite his good intentions, is a klutz who is constantly abused by those around him. The second movie in particular makes it seem [[CosmicPlaything like the universe just has it out for him]]. He loses the Flodder family at the airport, then a traffic jam in New York City makes it take him the rest of the day to reach his contacts' downtown office. He arrives past closing time, forcing him to sleep in a brothel. After he's discussed the Flodders' disappearance with them the next day, he loses his glasses and gets his hands stuck in a storm drain before he's mugged. Every passerby ignores him until a homeless person helps him get out after about a day, but Sjakie is subsequently imprisoned after a riot breaks out in a food court. Finally, he's hit by a car and then mistaken for a gender reassigment patient at the hospital.
