** Mira takes to almost [[FauxActionGirl]] levels as despite being the leader of the Battle Brawlers Resistance every victory she has involves needing help from someone.

* ''Anime/MacrossDelta'': The Chaos mercenary group has done nothing but lose in some way. None of their long-term strategies work against the Windemere Kingdom and more than once they are forced on the defensive or just run away. All the heroes tend to get is motivation to do better next time... and they're lucky to even achieve ''that!''

* Shinji Ikari from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' embodies this trope perfectly. Every awesome moment he has is negated by an even worse failure shortly after.

* A sad example in ''Anime/Pokemon'': No matter how hard Ash tries, he is always destined to lose the leauge and start again. The only way he'll ever win is if the writers finally get the message...

* [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Ash Ketchum/Satoshi]] will never, ''ever'' win a League. Unless it's a FillerEpisode League like the Orange Islands. This has ultimately reached a breaking point with fans when Ash reached the Kalos League Finals with a powerful set of Pokemon by his side and got trumped by a trainer he already lost ''twice before''.

** A serious contender for the most blatant example of this trope is the Lamenters, a Space Marine Chapter cursed with extremely bad luck. Apparently, they are cursed by fate or by the Ruinous Powers to be the single unluckiest chapter in the history of the Imperium of Man. Even when they win a battle, it will be through great sacrifice or that victory will make way for an even bigger defeat. Still, the fact they're still committed to the protection of humanity in the living nightmare that is the 41st Millennium is worthy of admiration.

* A good number of the Hero Association members from One Punch Man fall into this trope. It's very rare for anyone other than [[InvincibleHero Saitama]] to defeat a major villain. Especially notable are Genos, Sneck, Mumen Rider, and Darkness Blade.

* ''Anime/BakuganBattleBrawlers'' has Julie, who never won on her own besides the debut episodes of Gorem and Hammer Gorem. Then her last focus episode involves practically her boyfriend her primary cast member status, to the point she is defeated in the penultimate battle, while her boyfriend is the secondary character not defeated.
