* Music/MickJagger became known as this in Brazil during TheWorldCup in 2010. He was attending the United States knockout match alongside Kobe Bryant and Bill Clinton (US Team lost), then his own England ([[CurbStompBattle 0-4 defeat to Germany]]), and finally Brazil alongside his South American son (1-2 defeat, scoring first). In addition, his assessment of being impressed by Argentina led them to also lose 0-4 to the Germans, and a local network discovered Jagger was attending England's elimination in both the 1998 and 2006 Cups. As a consequence of this MemeticMutation, doctored images or cardboard cutouts of Jagger wearing the adversary's jersey became wildly common among football supporters. The next Cup in 2014 had [[http://www.cbsnews.com/news/brazil-mocks-mick-jagger-as-world-cup-jinx/ him jinx England, Portugal and Italy while on tour]] before attending in person Brazil's '''[[EpicFail 7-1]]''' trouncing by Germany. [[http://www.theguardian.com/music/2014/jul/10/mick-jagger-world-cup-curse-brazil Jagger took the blame off the last one]] ("I can take responsibility for the first German goal but not the other six!").

* A "bad luck for others" example in the ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' "Accidents sketch" where a man goes to a house and disaster ensues, with multiple people being killed. Watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gSA6sjDqFk here]].

* ''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.
