[[folder: Web Animation]] * Many of the Website/GoAnimate "[[YouAreGrounded Grounded]]" videos are this. Most of them involve one or more trouble-some kids (especially ones from little kid shows, particularly WesternAnimation/{{Caillou}} and WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer) getting grounded grounded grounded grounded grounded grounded for absurdly long periods of time for the slightest offenses. ([[LaserGuidedKarma Though, to be fair, many of them often have it coming]].) Many of these videos are [[SoBadItsGood just so over-the-top that it's funny]], but when the video maker decides to get cruel with the characters' punishments, ''[[UpToEleven hoo boy]]'' does it get cruel. The parent characters become utterly sociopathic (if not outright AxCrazy) compared to their kids and often come out on top [[DesignatedHero even when they clearly don't deserve it]], the kids [[DisproportionateRetribution don't do enough to warrant the long groundings]], and Caillou and Dora are hated and frequently humiliated/grounded/arrested/''killed'' by everyone in the universe [[DesignatedVillain when Caillou or Dora don't even deserve it]], or even just for being baby show characters.

** ''WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadrunner'' is probably the biggest offender. The show consists of making Wile suffer every scene in every way possible.

* ''Anime/NeonGensisEvangelion'' is a highly rare example of a ''tragic'' SadistShow. Bad and/or horrible things happen to ''every'' single character, and Shinji, the main protagonist & series' ButtMonkey (PlayedForLaughs at the beginning; later PlayedForDrama), gets the worst of it. By the final scene of the series, [[spoiler: he's completely ''broken'', stuck in a world with only a girl he mostly hates.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' can be this at times, with Gumball being the most common victim.

At the best of times, writers make sure to show how his superheroic life makes his mundane life more difficult. At the nasty end of the scale, he can't keep a girlfriend ([[ComicBook/OneMoreDay or wife]]), job, or residence; he's roundly hated and on the run from both the police, the mob, and a veritable army of {{Super Villain|s}}; all of his friends are dead, insane, on drugs, insane AND on drugs, or refuse to take his phone calls because he's so unreliable; and he intermittently suffers injuries, power fluctuations, web-fluid shortages, and costume damage. [[spoiler:[[ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan And at one point, his heroism winds up killing him!]]]] How pathetic can it get? There was a three issue run in the early '90s where, because Peter had been so busy with superheroics ''and'' his mundane life, he forgot to do laundry and had to fight crime in a dirty, slightly mildewed costume. ''Everyone'' he encountered commented on the smell and made remarks about his personal hygiene. [[/folder]] [[folder:Comic Strips]]

* ''{{Ziggy}}'', the eponymous character is always getting the short end of the stick, and the other human characters he comes across are sarcastic and indifferent towards him at best, and cruel to him at worst. No wonder he only has animals as friends-- but then again his pet parrot Josh isn't all that nice to him either. * ''FunkyWinkerbean'' started as a standard humor comic strip, and eventually morphed into a treatise on existential despair and the futility of life. * SpiderMan can tend this way, DependingOnTheWriter.

[[folder:Film]][[folder:Films -- Animation]] * ''WesternAnimation/SharkTale'' is rather huge on this trope. The main character is a ButtMonkey because his MeanBoss and his [[TheAce favorite henchmen]] bully him for being TooDumbToLive. The sad part was it aired during Cartoon Network's Stop Bullying campaign. [[/folder]] [[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]

* A majority of ''TheBuzzOnMaggie'' has the eponymous character treated like crap by her parents, her JerkJock older brother Aldrin, the teachers, the AlphaBitch Dawn, and occasionally, her younger brother Pupert and her best friend Rayna. [[spoiler:The only time that the odds were in Maggie's favor was when she was forced to babysit her baby sister Bella while trying to win memorabilia of her favorite band]]. * ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' seems to have become this in its later seasons, due to SeasonalRot.
