* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Qrow Branwen's Semblance is passively [[TheJinx causing bad luck]] for everyone around him. It's why he never stays settled down with his family for long, despite clearly caring about them deeply: he fears that he will bring misfortune on them. Interestingly, the bad luck doesn't affect ''himself'', just anyone near him, which he admits is quite handy in battle.

Compare WalkingDisasterArea, where bad things follow the hero [[WeirdnessMagnet because he's the hero]]. DoomMagnet is an extreme form. When this is weaponized, it's WindsOfDestinyChange. May be a CosmicPlaything, ButtMonkey, or [[TheChewToy Chew Toy]]. Approach with caution.

caution. Compare LethalKlutz who directly causes problems to those around him, generally through clumsiness.

A jinx is a living BadLuckCharm, someone who unintentionally causes calamity everywhere they go. They aren't malicious and they aren't trying to cause harm; they just happen to be very, very unlucky, and bad luck spreads.

* In Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''Literature/{{Foundation}} and Empire'' the Mule's clown Magnifico appears to be this. Everywhere Toran and Bayta take him, the Mule's forces eventually arrive and conquer the place. [[spoiler:Bayta eventually realizes that Magnifico is actually the Mule and has been emotionally manipulating the local populations to surrender.]]

* Misery in ''RubyGloom''. Usually, the bad luck [[BornUnlucky only strikes her]], but every Friday the 13th it reverses and she gets good luck while everyone around her is hit by bad luck.
* Badluck Schleprock, a regular on ''TheFlintstones'' SpinOff ''WesternAnimation/ThePebblesAndBammBammShow''.

* The black cat in ''BadLuckBlackie'' actually uses his natural bad luck to help out cats in need of his services. He helps a small kitten who is being bullied by a bulldog out by causing the dog bad luck, which usually takes the form of [[AnvilOnHead heavy objects falling on the dog out of nowhere]].
* In an episode of ''MarthaSpeaks'', Martha gets jinxed walking under a ladder and then later breaking a mirror, at least she THINKS she is. She does get quite a lot of bad luck, and it begins to appear that everyone she runs across does as well. While it turns out to be coincidental, it still makes her TheWoobie for the episode.

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{TUGS}}'' episode, "Jinxed" has Boomer, an unlucky tugboat. Before he was renamed Boomer, his name was Captain Harry. Unfortunately, like the urban legend goes, renaming a ship gives bad luck... in this case, bad luck to Boomer himself.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Qrow makes a crack to Ruby that he's called "Qrow" because crows are considered unlucky to be around. [[spoiler:When Ruby demands to know why he followed them instead of just travelling with them, he jokes bitterly about his name, explaining that his Semblance causes misfortune to those around him. He observes that it's permanently active so can be neither controlled nor switched off, which is great for dealing with opponents in battle, but not so great when trying to interact with friends and family.]]
