* In the third book of the Literature/InheritanceCycle, [[TheHero Eragon]] and [[PromotedToOpeningTitles Roran]] compare bruises, complete with buckets of incestuous HoYay, mocking each other's for not looking painful enough. Eragon appears to win by removing his trousers to show Roran the massive groinal bruising from bareback dragon-riding, but Roran is able to top that by revealing that an EliteMook more-or-less tore off his arm.

This is a rather rare example of this trope being straight up useful as Eragon is suitably horrified by the injury and proceeds to heal it. This is particularly useful since they're going into battle against said mook in a few hours.

* The official rules for picking out who starts a game of ''{{CardGame/Gloom}}'' is to have a game of Misery Poker covering the current day. Makes for amusing contrievances if played the first thing in the morning, and for the bizarre situation where your pals might hold "grudges" against you for having such a miserable life.

This is also often used by oppressors to pit different marginalized groups [[LetsYouAndHimFight against each other]] to compete for a single scrap of compassion to prevent them from noticing who the original source of their woes is, thus doing the oppressor's dirty work for them and letting that oppressor keep their hands ''looking'' clean and [[VictimBlaming making the victims look]] [[TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong as if they deserved at least some of their misery]].
