* ''Manga/NyanKoi'': The main character, Junpei Kousaka, is deathly allergic to cats and does everything he can to keep away from them, but both his mother and sister love cats so much that they keep one around the house constantly, even lets the cat on the dining table, and treat his cat allergies as petty whining. Junpei also suffers abuse from everyone else around him, is surrounded by people who loves cats, is mocked by his own classmates, occasionally gets treated like a pervert and beaten up for it, and not helping the accusations are smarter than average cats who seem to enjoy making his life hell. That's not even mentioning the Guardian Deity of Cats who cursed Junpei into doing 100 good deeds for cats, or he will be turned into one himself and possibly die from the full-body allergic reaction.

Often overlaps with the GrossoutShow. An ImmoralRealityShow will usually be this in-universe. May be the [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil result]], [[HumansAreBastards cause]] or overlap a WorldHalfEmpty. Essentially the basic premise of a DarkFic or ComedicSociopathy. Compare KafkaKomedy. Compare and contrast PointAndLaughShow (RealLife {{Jerkass}}es, but dispensing with the torture in favor of just laughing at their existence) and CringeComedy (where we feel at least ''some'' sympathy for the victims, but that sympathy is outweighed by our voyeurism). The natural habitat of the LethalKlutz.

* ''TheLifeAndTimesOfTim'': When [[ButtMonkey Tim]] isn't the victim of his own social ineptitude, he's suffering for being too meek and unassertive to turn down his friends and coworkers' terrible ideas.

* ''{{Robotomy}}'' takes place on a planet known as Insanus, mostly at [[SuckySchool Harry S. Apocalypse]], which is filled with extremely violent robots who mutilate each other at any possible moment. Almost every scene has some mutilation going on.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' can be considered one sometimes, as several episodes involve Lincoln being bullied and bad-mouthed by his 10 sisters. When something goes wrong in the Loud House, the 10 sisters all gang up on Lincoln simply for being the only boy in the family, and also for having white hair at the age of 11. (Good examples include "The Sweet Spot", "The Green House", "The Loudest Yard", "One of the Boys", "Brawl in the Family", etc.)

* ''Disney/ChickenLittle'' is just full of this. The title character overreacted to something falling on his head and causing a panic in the town and they [[NeverLiveItDown never let him live it down]] to the point that he's pretty much labeled a loon. His father isn't any better, constantly feeling ashamed of him and never even trying to connect with him, least till he manages to win a ball game for his town. [[SarcasmMode Model parent, he is.]]

* ''Film/SaloOrThe120DaysOfSodom'' arguably takes this trope ''literally'', considering that the fascists are all sadistic nutjobs who brutally torture young teens for their own pleasure.

* ''Series/{{Cheaters}}''. The show's purpose is to be a private investigator service for people who think their significant other is being unfaithful. [[{{Dissimile}} Except without the "private" portion.]] If the SO is indeed cheating, you don't have to pay any fees for hiring the show, but you are expected to confront them and the Other (Wo)Man in public with the host and camera crew trailing behind like {{Ambulance Chaser}}s, getting in the broken-hearted peoples' faces and asking "How do you feel?" Never once have they shown an investigation that exonerated the SO or had a happy ending. Is it any wonder the host was once stabbed on-camera by an enraged man?

* Teen soaps are prone to this half of the time, apparently to show you that some TeensAreMonsters. {{Nickelodeon}} usually leads this trope, as well as DanSchneider shows that employ DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale. The Creator/DanSchneider shows ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'' and ''Series/ICarly'' are poster-children for ComedicSociopathy, both having a massive KarmaHoudini in the form of Megan and Sam, with their targets Drake & Josh, and Freddie respectively.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' - From about Season 4 and onwards it's almost like the writers saw Trey Parker and Matt Stone defend ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' by saying they don't sit down and think, "Who can we piss off," and decided to use this as the basis of the show, with it becoming so mean spirited and removing any heart or warmth it had.

* A majority of ''WesternAnimation/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.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents''. The whole show seems to revolve around ways to just to torture Timmy in the most cruelest ways possible. Heck, his parents get in on the act more often then not. It's a miracle the kid hasn't broken down after all the crap he gets into. In fact, his life being hell is why he has Fairy God parents in the first place, Timmy has two Fairy God Parents who grant his every want at any possible second, Timmy despite parental and babysitter abuse can still live in total paradise whenever he wants. As long as he makes smart wishes and keeps them under control, which, unfortunately, he doesn't.

* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad''. Almost all of the humour comes from the main characters being complete dicks to each other- Tuddrussel abuses Larry, Larry tries to kill Otto, Otto attacks Tuddrussel etc. The most vicious cases of this is when the writers had decided to make entire episodes dedicated to making sure that Otto is completely miserable, like have him abandoned on islands only inhabited by blood-thirsty baboons. If it's not the main guys- you can bet that some of the jokes come from ether Tuddrussel beating people up for stuff they didn't even do or historical figures being stupid or jerks and their inventions or ideas cause mayhem.

* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'': No matter where they go, or what they do, Mordecai and Rigby will never get out of their boring work as park groundskeepers.



* ''WesternAnimation/{{Sidekick}}''. The show takes place in a city which is such a hive of villainy that there is an entire section where being a good person is literally forbidden. But at least there are superheroes to fight the villains-except that every single one we see completely useless, and the only one we ever actually see doing something is only slightly more moral than the villains he fights. It's widely accepted in this universe that it's the job of the sidekicks, the real focus of the show (hence the name), to do all the real work while the superhero takes all the credit despite the sidekicks usually not actually having any powers or skills. Unfortunately, all the sidekicks we see are either completely incompetent, {{Jerkass}}es with little to no concern for those around them, or both. The only two characters who get a ''relatively'' sympathetic portrayal are Eric and Kitty, both of whom are subjected to a constant stream of mockery and humiliation by everyone including each other.

* ''WesternAnimation/ScaredySquirrel'': Basically centers around an [[ButtMonkey unlucky soul]] getting bullied by the manger at his job & he can't seem to get a break from it.



* ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'': The protagonist is contently bullied by his father & he lives in a CrapsackWorld.
* ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'' is about 2 kids getting bullied by a monkey-like being and an EvilTeacher in a SuckySchool.
