* Elliot from ''[[VideoGame/JaggedAlliance Jagged Alliance 2]]'' fits this like a glove. His boss, the very bitchy and hot-tempered [[BigBad Queen Deidranna]] enjoys [[ShootTheMessenger killing the messenger]]. In this case, it's always Elliot, and it always involves her slapping the s*** out of him, and in one instance, shooting him from point-blank with a pistol... only to have him get up and insist that he clean the mess himself. He is incredibly devoted to her, regardless of the abuse he takes, and actually would survive until the end of the game if your mercs don't find him and put him out of his misery.

* ''Series/{{Galavant}}'':
** At the end of the first season Richard becomes this to Galavant.
** Chester Wormwood the evil sorcerer/wedding planner has one of these. He has trouble separating which bits are secret and which aren't, leading to Wormwood exasperatedly explaining that yes, there is the wedding ''plan'', the evil ''plot'' and the color ''scheme'', and culminating in him sending out "Save the Dates" for their army's sneak attack.

An annoying, incompetent sidekick for another character -- usually an UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist -- who barely tolerates him. The only talent a Bumbling Sidekick has is the ability to tolerate any amount of abuse -- and he needs it, given how often his "[[WithFriendsLikeThese friends]]" are yelling at him and throwing him face-first into walls after his latest screw-up.
