* The Abyssals in ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' are this to a T. Any time they interact with a living thing in a non-murderous, non-terrifying way, they build up Resonance. When it gets high enough, it has effects ranging from killing those the Abyssal loves to sucking a whole town straight into the Underworld, which is not a very pleasant place for the living.

* Arya in 'Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire' can't seem to escape the tragic situations of her world. After watching her father lose his head, she gets caught up in the war which places her in several skirmishes and spending weeks fighting royal troops, starvation, exposure, and bandits. When she finally has a roof over her head, it's as a slave/servant to sadistic supervisors. Every few pages of her ordeal involves watching the commoners of the countryside killed, run over, raped, starved to death, or conscripted to fight a war nobody cares about. When that is finally over she gets scooped up by Sandor Clegane hoping to ransom her to family members who keep dying hours before the two of them show up. About the safest thing to happen to her so far is her taking up residence in a death-worshiping/assassin training temple.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Buffy gets a double helping of this. First she's the Slayer, which means all sorts of nasty things will seek her out and she's pretty much guaranteed a violent end at a young age. The show repeatedly points out that Buffy is unusual as a Slayer with family and friends, and the view of the Watchers seems to be that she will bring doom on those around her. Secondly, she lives on a Hellmouth, which attracts vampires, demons and the like and also seems to make both magic and science more dangerous than they would be elsewhere.

* With four ''The Forgotten Sands'' games being added to his canon, the ''PrinceOfPersia'' from the Sands of Time part of the franchise has become this. He's constantly bringing doom down on himself and everyone around him. He's had to kill the sand monster that had been his father, and the demonic entity that had been his brother. The ancient djinn queen who decided to help him died in the process. His mentor was killed by the [[SuperPersistentPredator Dahaka]] in ''Battles of Prince of Persia'', and while looking for a way to escape the creature he started a war in which his mother was killed. When he came back from the Island of Time with Kaileena, she died, and soon after that his father, whose death had been undone, was killed for real.

TheJinx is a lighter version, causing unlucky incidents but rarely deaths. WalkingDisasterArea is for when the doom happens to a large number of redshirts around the main character, on a much larger scale, but tends to leave major and supporting characters alone. If locations tend to suffer instead of people, then the hero is a DestructiveSavior.

Compare with ContrivedCoincidence. Compare and contrast DeusAngstMachina and TraumaCongaLine, if the character in question also suffers from all this doom. If the character takes this badly, then this will result in SurvivorGuilt. If the character literally causes plants to die and the environment to become dark and dreary, then we're dealing with a WalkingWasteland.

A further exaggeration is WalkingWasteland, where a character literally causes plants to die and the environment to become dark and dreary. If locations tend to suffer instead of people, the character takes this trope badly, then the hero is a DestructiveSavior.
