** Also from ''The Simpsons'': As Homer became more of a JerkAss, Marge appeared to be more and more of a doormat, forgiving him over and over again, not only for stupid accidents and acts of ignorance, but huge acts of genuine deceit. While Bart and Lisa weren't willing to put up with it in many cases, Marge overlooked almost everything he did.

** Notable straight versions are Ned Flanders (specially post-{{Flanderization}}) and Kirk Van Houten.
** A notable example is Seymour Skinner, obsessed with being the "perfect son" for his mother Agnes. Subverted in the AlternateUniverse where he's actually Armin Tamzarian a rebellious orphan who took his Seymour Skinner persona from his mentor after Agnes mistook him when he was about to inform about the apparent death of the real Seymour in Vietnam.

In their first meeting, when he asks Homer if he needs something, Homer agrees to "borrow" the TV tray that Ned has just bought for himself. Eight years later the tray is still in the Simpsons' living room.

*In the latter parts of the ''Gensokyo20XX'' series , an age-regressed Reiimu is noted to take any sort of abuse coming to her and does so without hesitance, as cruelty is half of what she knows, thus she's learned to put up with it. However, she does have exceptions, particularly in the case of Baka, to whom she tricked and hit with her [=IV=] pole and Yume Ni, to whom she stabbed with a pair of scissors.

* The main argument people have about ''Manga/AiYoriAoshi'' is whether Aoi is a YamatoNadeshiko or this trope too.
** Aoi does have a backbone, when she ''chooses'' to use it; otherwise, she would have never resisted her parents, time and time again. On the other hand, Taeko ''is'' an Extreme Doormat.
** Other possible suspects include minor characters Saionji and Chizuru. Saionji has the excuse that we only see him in his capacity as butler / chauffeur.

* Gohan from ''Manga/DragonBallZ'' was one for most of the series: a total MommasBoy who worked diligently at his studies, whenever Goku wasn't stealing him for more training to save the world. CharacterizationMarchesOn, however, and we see him gradually learning to stand up for himself and the people he cares about in the Namek saga, though Vegeta's criticism still got him to clam up. Even when he was a teenager, Videl managed to blackmail him into submission.

* Soushi of ''Manga/InuXBokuSS'', who became a ProfessionalButtKisser in order to appeal to his higher ups and worm his way to freedom from a life-long house arrest. One of his previous masters noted that he'd willingly do an embarrassing act with with a smile on his face. He's something of a subversion since he uses this tactic to [[GuileHero achieve his own ends]], but it's also true he assigns so little value to his life that he'd even commit suicide if that was what was wished of him.
