* At one point in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', the narration mentions that outworlders have started to refer to Ringo as “the Load,” because he's never seen to do anything except cower next to John. [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower Hoo boy, are they wrong.]]

* As mentioned in the video game section any player who doesn't pull their own weight on a team can easily be the load. Hence the term "carrying." This ]can easily happen to any team based sport or game of any type when a player isn't performing at their best.

** In the pilot movie for BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand, the Aliens are shown to be loyal and competent engineers under normal circumstances. But once the artifact that powers their species' HiveMind is stolen, they can hardly function.

* Rick Jones from ''ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk''. What could be more useful to some of the most skilled and powerful super heroes in the Marvel Universe than some kid with a motorcycle following them around? Not to mention that he's apparently responsible for Bruce Banner becoming the Hulk. The only reason he's around is because, as his friend, he's one of the only people capable of calming the Hulk down.\\\
Creator/PeterDavid eventually subverted this in his ''Incredible Hulk'' and ''[[ComicBook/CaptainMarVell Captain Marvel]]'' series by showing that Rick had spent [[GenreSavvy so much time hanging around superheroes, he'd actually picked up enough general knowledge]], including extensive combat training during the time he insisted on being ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's sidekick, Bucky, to be able to handle himself in almost any situation (like, say, [[CrazyPrepared carrying around a parachute in case he's suddenly stuck on an exploding spaceship]]).\\\
Another instance was when two big strong tough guys tried to mess with Rick, only to discover that hanging out with the people he had, and his general experience, made him a ''very'' competent hand-to-hand fighter against other normals, he trashed them without much effort. By the standards of "normals", Rick Jones is not someone you want mad at you.

** Modern Rick Jones has basically turned his history as TheLoad into a superpower. Besides being the Marvel Universe's foremost hacktivist, it's noted in-universe that somebody who has a good 80 percent of all the current and former Avengers in his personal contact list is not to be trifled with. When he's hanging out with the New Avengers, it's also shown that the mementos he's picked up over the years include enough super-powered gadgetry to outfit a strong squad of B-level supervillains.

ComicBook/LuckyLuke: No example is better suited for this trope than Rantanplan. He is a total moron who never quite understands what's going on, fancies himself a heroic hound but is too easily distracted and contributes nothing but trouble for Lucky Luke. In the videogames the player even has to avoid shooting him, while in a fight with dangerous villains. It is no surprise that Jolly dislikes his company. A few times he saved the day without realising it and completely by accident.

* Po in KungFuPanda2 is a literal example. He is a capable kung fu master and can direct the members of the Furious Five in battle fairly well. However his [[MightyGlacier mobility]] is so poor that he is often literally thrown and carried around by his much quicker comrades.

* Some of the Houses in ''Pinball/GameOfThrones'' act like this in certain modes. For instance, starting "Hand of the King" with House Baratheon requires ''seven'' shots to complete a set, instead of the regular four.
