* ''WebVideo/SaintSeiyaAbridged'': the Silver Saints. Whenever they get a mention by the characters, it's either as a synonym for "weakling" or to reference the fact they are essentially being used as cannon fodders by the Great Pope.

** Delphox in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', who is [[TierInducedScrappy mocked for not being as good as Greninja or Chesnaught]]. It mainly suffers from a middling offensive typing and PoorPredictableRock, but many now use the Kalos Fire Starter as an example of how far Psychic types have fallen since their [[GameBreaker reign of terror]] in Gen I.

It mainly suffers from a middling offensive typing typing, a lackluster hidden ability and PoorPredictableRock, PoorPredictableRock (Which is especially egregious since it's ''a sorcerer'', which normally have very diverse movesets in other games), but many now use the Kalos Fire Starter as an example of how far Psychic types have fallen since their [[GameBreaker reign of terror]] in Gen I.

* Marty Jannetty. Despite once being half of one of the greatest tag teams of all time, along with being a former Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion, Jannetty will be forever known as being "the untalented guy who was [[BreakupBreakout completely overshadowed]] by his [[Wrestling/ShawnMichaels former partner]] and fell into obscurity after the team broke up." Any wrestler who ends up on the bad side of a BreakupBreatout is dubbed "The Jannetty" of the group by the fandom.

** Sasuke gets this from a large amount of fans, especially [[ValuesDissonance western ones]]. In canon he's a cool and aloof boy who gets in over his head with avenging his family. To many fans he instead comes off as a broody EmoTeen obsessed with [[SiblingMurder killing his brother]] who ignores anything and [[ChasteTeen anyone]] unrelated to his goals. This isn't help post-series as ''Manga/NarutoGaiden'' and ''Manga/{{Boruto}}'' screwed up his perception even more. Sasuke is also known as a [[spoiler:shoddy borderline DisappearedDad and mediocre husband who never bothered to contact his wife and kid for over ten years]]. The fact his [[spoiler:first date with Sakura]] only lasted a few minutes has only strenghtened this portrayal. Even his fans portray him as this, ranging from an actual loser to simply being socially awkward mess.

* Tuxedo Mask from ''Anime/SailorMoon''. He has [[ImprobableWeaponUser throwing roses]], an extendable cane (which he uses as a baton), and a propensity for dramatic entries to [[BigDamnHeroes save and encourage]] the Sailor Senshi. He's somewhat useful in most adaptations(although he goes OutOfFocus on a couple of seasons of the anime and in one he [[DroppedABridgeOnHim got a bridge dropped]] ([[DeathIsCheap temporarily]]) on him off-screen (while [[PutOnABus he was]] [[BusCrash going to America]]).) This has only fanned the {{Fanon}} of him being pretty damn useless period [[ButtMonkey and no lack of jokes]] [[TheWorfEffect and]] [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomping]] are done at his expense in (mostly {{Crossover}}) FanFiction.
** It's notable the original comic version of the character had mostly non-combat oriented powers, avoided direct fighting, and functioned more as a kind of scout or information gatherer for the team, and generally held in high regard by the audience of that version. It's quite possible the changes to the anime were, ironically, intended to make the character seem more formidable and ''avoid'' perception of Tuxedo Mask was useless.

* It's not uncommon for people to take out-of-context ''Franchise/ArchieComics'' caps and portray Archie as a stereotypical "nice guy" who expects kisses and dates in exchange for being sweet. [[DependingOnTheWriter Some comic issues]] have portrayed him that way but it's not his normal characterization.

Added DiffLines:

** Most ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' fanworks have the female protagonist, Dawn, as the main character. This leaves her SpearCounterpart, Lucas, left as a side-character. Lucas often gets shoved into a ButtMonkey role because his role as [=NPC=] isn't really that important after the midway point of the game.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/WarriorCats'' fans will never let Longtail live down getting beat up by a kittypet in the first book. To make it worse, Rusty couldn't have been much older than a kit, so it's basically like getting beat up by an inexperienced ten year old.

Added DiffLines:

* Though canonically one of the strongest Franchise/{{Green Lantern}}s, Hal Jordan is treated as this in some circles, mostly for the anomalous number of 50s and 60s comics where a guy who's battled entire alien warfleets gets hit on the head and knocked out by a random thug. Given his frequent cases of PlotInducedStupidity, those same circles tend to assume he's developed brain damage.
