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.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Qrow Branwen's Semblance is passively [[TheJinx causing bad luck]] for everyone around him. It's why he never stays settled down with his family for long, despite clearly caring about them deeply: he fears that he will bring misfortune on them. Interestingly, the bad luck doesn't affect ''himself'', just anyone near him, which he admits is quite handy in battle.

* Nix from Creator/KameronHurley's ''Literature/BelDameApocrypha'' trilogy is rivaled only by John Constantine and Jack Harkness for the sheer number and proportion of her associates who end up dead, disabled, or mentally broken.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Somehow Sansa attracts a nightmare's gallery of suitors. First Joffrey the PsychopathicManchild, then Robin the ManChild and just when you think it couldn't get worse, Littlefinger engaged her to Ramsay Bolton the {{Sadist}}, to say nothing of Littlefinger's own "interest" in her. About the only people who are nice to her are the scarred and ugly Sandor Clegane and the dwarf Tyrion Lannister, and even that situation is complicated with the latter two essentially serving the family that killed hers.

A '''Doom Magnet''' is a character, usually a {{Protagonist}}, followed by doom and despair. He himself won't feel the full sting of this cloud of doom. Instead, any character he knows, is friends with, is related to, or in some cases ''even makes eye contact with'', is inevitably doomed to some wretched fate, be it [[StuffedInTheFridge death]], or [[FateWorseThanDeath worse]].
