* Lazlow of ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto''. Lazlow is mainly just a Radio DJ/Show Host of the games, but has this reputation of becoming more and more unlikable with each game. While he thinks himself as a star and funny, life can be quick to assure him that the opposite is true. How he's remained...somewhat successful is never fully explained, but by the time Grand Theft Auto VideoGame rolled around, he does suffer a bit of an emotional breakdown on his show which gives us a bit of insight into how his life can be.

-->'''Michelle Minx''': I'm speaking for the show, dicktard! Chattersphere, hosted by me, Michelle Minx, with sidekick support work from you, until your contract runs out and you can be let go, Mr. Lazlow I-Don't-Have-A-Surname.\\
'''Lazlow''': Every week! You rub my face in it every goddamn week!\\
'''Michelle Minx''': Because every week, you act like I'm not here, and it's still one of your countless previous shows that didn't work out, and yet still allow you to fail upwards. Man you must have some amazing pictures of whichever executives you're blackmailing.

*** In a specific example of just how unlucky he is: Wataru and Saki wager Wataru's living arrangements against Wataru's mother. Realizing they cannot beat her in a game of skill, Wataru and Saki settle for Roulette, [[spoiler: and Wataru calls Hayate and asks him what color he would bet everything in a game of Roulette on, then tells Saki to bet on the other color. Saki wins.]]

* ''Anime/JewelpetHappiness'': Chiari has chronic bad luck, so she's used to falling in a few pits and tripping on random objects several times a day. She even has an app that tells her the level of luck she can expect for the day; when it tells her she'll have good luck, it just means she'll fall in less pits than usual. She's very optimistic nonetheless.

* Qrow Branwen from {{WebAnimation/RWBY}} outright states he was this, and even ''named'' because of it. His semblance is a constant passive effect that brings misfortune to those around him. In a combat situation, its exactly as handy as one can expect. With family and friends however, not so much. Worse? [[BlessedWithSuck He can't]] [[PowerIncontinence control it or turn it off]].

* LetsPlay/ProtonJon is known for his miserably bad luck when Let's Playing or streaming, and he reportedly has even ''worse'' luck when it comes to [[StuckAtTheAirportPlot air travel]]. Though it's hard to top the time he had to replace some recording hardware and bought said replacement from Amazon, only to receive an email some time later saying that ''the seller had '''died''''' (at least they refunded his money). This is all in direct contrast to his fellow [[LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys Runaway Guy]] LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}}, who is known for his [[BornLucky staggeringly]] ''[[BornLucky good]]'' [[BornLucky luck]].

* Momiji from ''Manga/BinbouGamiGa'', by virtue of being the [[JustifiedTrope literal goddess of misfortune]]. She's learned to take it in stride. Unfortunately for her, she is forced to keep an eye on [[BornLucky Ichigo]], the luckiest person on Earth, so lucky in fact that she threatens to upend reality's karmic structure.
