* ''DetroitMetalCity''. The main character lives a double life as an aspiring pop musician (which he loves, but sucks at) and being the songwriter, lead guitarist and front man for a DeathMetal band under a false name and identity (a role he hates, but is ''extremely'' good at). However much he wants to quit doing the latter, he is unable to do so because he's ''too'' good at being said DeathMetal frontman. The metal persona also ends up surfacing at the most inopportune at times in his normal life as well.

** Two of the most egregious cases occur in the same episode. Larry buys an effeminate young boy a gift and, after asking the kid what he wants, buys him a sewing machine. The mother reacts badly and Larry gets chewed out by his friends for buying the kid something that he clearly wanted. Later in the episode, Larry is explaining to his manager the replacement gift he bought the kid. Michael J. Fox is delivering a speech at the time and Larry, unable to be heard, mimes playing a violin. Due to his earlier confrontations with Fox, this is misconstrued as belittling his condition and leads to an entire crowds turning on Larry and the Mayor of New York kicking him out of the city. Most episodes usually make Larry's downfall a product of his own behaviour but this episode seemed unusually, and unfairly, mean to him.

* Exactly the same stuff above also goes for Peter Fox from FoxTrot. He is a ButtMonkey taken to the extreme. A notable example is an arc where Peter punches a guy at school for making a joke about his relationship with Denise. Although Peter was provoked into punching him, he is given 2 weeks of detention, clean-up detail and 3 months of probation as punishment. He then accidentally spills the beans to Andy when he gets home, and then the story ends.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' begins with the main character doing various difficult good deeds for the people in his life like doing as much yard work as he can and painting a backdrop for a guy trying to run a play. Regardless of how good a job he does, the person would pick one thing they didn't like about it and immediately scold him for it (the guy said everything was ruined because the shade of blue he used for the sea was off). [[WithFriendsLikeThese With friends like these]], it's less of a wonder he immediately returns to {{Jerkass}} mode the next episode.
