* Arthur from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has the worst luck out of all characters in the game. This even extends to his personal skill Misfortunate, which reduces his Critical Evade by 5, but also reduces the Critical Evade of enemies within two tiles by 15.



* Jinx from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' is so named because she [[WindsOfDestinyChange bestow bad luck at will]]. Mostly she uses it on inanimate objects to make them collapse.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Qrow makes cracks to Ruby that he's called "Qrow" because crows are considered unlucky to be around. In volume four, 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. The quote at the top of this page is from his ImageSong, and it accurately describes his feelings about his Semblance.

* Kasandra, a unique Blade from ''VideoGame/XenoblaceChronicles2'', is a cheerful and sunny character who seems to have no idea about the misfortune that seems to follow her. The fox mask she wears on the back of her head rattles whenever something bad is about to happen, which it frequently does. Her previous Driver was a Nopon (which is in itself a rarity) who was one of the most celebrated salvagers of Argentum, until he got eaten by a gigantic fish monster; presumably as a result of the bad luck that seems to plague Kasandra. After you learn about this and defeat that same monster, you obtain her core crystal, labelled as the '[[{{Irony}} Lucky Core Crystal]]'.

* [[ComicBook/{{Asterix}} Asterix and the Roman Agent]] has Tortuous Convolvulus, who magically causes strife and anger just by his presence. Sort of an indirect jinx, as a lot of destruction comes in the wake of that.

* [[ComicBook/{{Asterix}} Asterix and the Roman Agent]] has Tortuous Convolvulus, who magically causes Convolvulus plays with it, as he most often utilises his unique talent for psychological warfare, strife and anger just for his own machiavellian enjoyment. However at times he seems to cause that naturally by his mere presence. Sort of an indirect jinx, as a lot of destruction comes in the wake of that.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MiloMurphysLaw,'' the title character is both BornUnlucky and a jinx, since whatever weird fate awaits him is liable to hit whoever's nearby. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARTRJQfV90k The theme song]] establishes this pretty well, as he [[DissonantSerenity deftly and happily dodges disasters]] that instead hit the people he passes.

* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'': In "Hurricane!", Stan said to be a jinx any time he tries to help somebody, as shown when he tries to protect his fmaily during a hurricane. In fact, Francine even tells him to his face that ''any'' idea, no matter how practical, is automatically doomed to fail on the mere grounds that he thought of it.
