* Baldur of Myth/NorseMythology makes this OlderThanPrint. He was practically immune to everything since his mother made all things in the world swear not to harm him (except mistletoe, [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong because it's so harmless]]). Being the [[HornyVikings archetypal Norse]], the rest of the gods immediately came up with a hilarious game where everybody throws rocks and blades at him because they know nothing would happen anyway. [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt And the rest is history.]] (Yeah, Loki was kind of a dick about that. )

* Los Ben Dejos, two small guys who became mainstays of Vintage Wrestling, Premier Wrestling Xperience, FIP and Wrestling/{{N|ationalWrestlingAlliance}}WA FUW and Ring Warriors, best know for being thrown off high places and being beaten up bigger/more vindictive wrestlers for little reason. After three years of constant abuse they actually started winning a lot but never really stopped being go to targets.

* ProfessionalWrestling is crammed with such characters. One need only mention [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} World Wrestling Entertainment]] Superstar Colin Delaney, who repeatedly got [[CurbStompBattle squashed by wrestlers a great deal bigger than he was]], only to [[{{Determinator}} be back to wrestle the next week with increasingly more bandages covering his body]]. Perhaps the most notorious example is former United States Women's Champion Mae Young, especially at the start of her WWE career in the late 1990s. Already well into her seventies by that point (she's 87 as of this writing), Mae's initial gimmick was that she was an Iron Buttmonkey senior citizen who constantly took "bumps" on behalf of her best friend, The Fabulous Moolah. (She once even was smashed through a conference table by Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys!) As if that weren't demeaning enough, Mae was also made into an AbhorrentAdmirer / ChristmasCake stereotype who (among other exploits) [[spoiler: almost]] gave birth to Mark Henry's baby, French-kissed Vince [=McMahon=], and was revealed as the object of Jerry Springer's (reluctant) lust on an unforgettable episode of ''Monday Night Raw''. The sad thing, really, is that Mae was actually an accomplished wrestler back in the day (starting her career during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII when many male wrestlers went off to Europe or Japan), but that younger viewers watching WWE programming are likely to think she's just some repellent old lady that's kept around backstage purely for comedy purposes.
* Oh gosh, [[Wrestling/{{Francine}} ECW's Francine]] absolutely belongs here. After her [[FaceHeelTurn heel turn]] at ''ECW [=HeatWave=] 96'', she took ''so'' much verbal abuse from the crowds and drew so much mockery from announcer Wrestling/JoeyStyles. Then there was all the ''physical'' abuse she took as well.
