* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' backstory, one story states that the ancient [[OurElvesAreDifferent Falmer (Snow Elves)]] were visited by Sai, the God of Luck in the Iliac Bay region. He had the ability to bring supernaturally good luck to those around him, but not to himself. However, the Falmer treated him poorly and he refused to ever return to them. They probably could have used the luck, as their once mighty civilization crumbled when they were attacked by the ancient [[HornyVikings Nords]]. The survivors fled to their [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] cousins, but were [[EnslavedElves enslaved]] and [[BodyHorror mutated]] by the Dwemer into the bestial goblin-like creatures seen in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''.

** Of course, Eddy rivals Jimmy for this trope, giving numerous injuries the latter suffered in an arbitrary manner.

* Karl Van Buren, a ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' v3 character, seems to have this problem, as he's notorious for having extremely bad luck. Some of the things noted in his backstory include, in no particular order, almost drowning, the plane he was on sucking in two people, an ax falling down and hurting people while he was reading about an ax murder, and a transvestite commiting suicide and landing on his car, among other things. He doesn't last very long in-game, having had his neck snapped by Gabriel Theobaldt. He even gets posthumous bad luck, as Victor Kurchatov comes across his corpse and... [[{{Squick}} you don't want to know]].

* The titular character of ''Comicbook/{{Squee}}'' has this going on. He's also [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood six]].

* The titular family in the short lived DomCom ''Series/ThePitts'' were if anything even more unlucky than their ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' counterparts - at least none of the Bundys got mauled by [[WeirdnessMagnet werewolves, kidnapped by their own haunted car]] or end up with a two foot long pipe [[AmusingInjuries lodged in their heads after a boiler explosion.]]

* We can't forget about Squidward from ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'', who has the unfortunate luck of living between two idiot neighbors (one of whom works aside him at the Krusty Krab, meaning Squidward can't catch a break from him even at work), having a boss who pays him little to nothing, and of course, being injured and humiliated sporadically, even when he has done nothing to attract karma.

* 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.
