* ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'' has Masashi Sudo/Kamen Rider Scissors, who is a MemeticLoser amongst the fandom. He has the worst advent deck of all the riders - aside from the Advent (Which summons [[GiantEnemyCrab Volcancer]], his Mirror Monster) and his [[FinishingMove Final Vent]] card he only had a Strike Vent card (which was a rather ackward weapon to use, and his wasn't even a ranged attack!), a Scissors Vent (which was a shorter version of the Sword vent) and a Guard vent card - he lacked any unique cards, such as Gai's [[AntiMagic Confide]] or Raia's [[PowerCopying Copy]], and his cards had very low AP. [[spoiler: Of all the riders in the series, he's the only one who gets killed by his own Mirror Monster, and he's the first to die, dying in the second episode he appears in]].

* This has been a long-time staple of wrestling games (and as of late, fighting games as well) due to their create-a-character features. It's very possible to make a character with only the most basic weak striking attacks and the lowest possible stats, a humiliating entrance motif, slap the likeness of someone you don't like onto him, and put him in a steel cage to get the bejesus kicked out of him by your favorite wrestler.

** Cosmog and its evolution Cosmoem in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon''. Cosmog is ''hopelessly'' useless and pathetic, as it can only learn two whole moves period, and neither one does anything worthwhile (Splash and Teleport). Cosmoem is a bit better, getting massive defenses and Cosmic Power to boost them, but it still cannot do anything, so why should you bother using them at all? Well, they are the first pokemon that can ''evolve into the legendary Pokemon'' Solgaleo and Lunala (depending on the version), giving them the ultimate MagikarpPower.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}}'' has The Devilbird of Sloth. While the other Devilbirds are like a combination of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]] and TheHeartless, with all sorts of truly nasty MindRape abilities that leaves them open only to higher level players, Sloth... is just an egg. That does absolutely nothing.

* The original ''VideoGame/ShiningForce'' (a [=TBS=] game where you control a dozen fighters out of a pool of 30 or so) has a number of characters that can be found or missed during your travels. One is a character called Jogurt the Yogurt. Jogurt is a hamster with a helmet. Jogurt only talks about his helmet. Jogurt has 1 hit point. Jogurt does 1 damage. Jogurt has a magic ring that turns other (adjacent) heroes into little hamsters like him. And then breaks. EVERY time. Levelling takes 100 exp. Killing someone nets 48. If, somehow, you manage to get Jogurt to kill 3 people (or 2 plus 4 other attacks) doing 1 damage in close combat, he levels - and gains NO abilities, remaining at lvl 1. You can also 'promote' fighters. Jogurt can be promoted right away - yup, no change. Jogurt is THE paragon of this trope.

* The various ''VideoGame/{{Lego Adaptation Game}}s'' pride themselves on this due to their feature of making ''every'' character who appears in each game, good or bad, available for free play. Yes this includes the useless [[Franchise/StarWars Gonk Droid]] and the [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Penguin Minion]]. One notable subversion however is [[Film/JurassicPark Mr. DNA]], who is a firm LethalJokeCharacter with access to ''every character ability in the game''.

* In ''MagicalBattleArena'', the final character you can unlock [[BraggingRightsReward after a downright brutal battle is]]... a Gadget Drone. Yup, the grunt-type [[MechaMooks Mecha-Mook]] from ''Anime/{{MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha}}'' that every character beats up for their first stage. With only two special attacks, no supers, and pathetically low HP, its powers are truly fearsome.
