* Normally, [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters most people from SNK]] don't fit this trope. Unless you're Iori Yagami. If being possessed by [[DemonicPossession Orochi]], failing to beat his rival Kyo, and [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment being forced to turn into a girl]] isn't enough proof, go play a challenge of Iori vs [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Homer]] in {{MUGEN}}. Homer will sum Iori up in 9 words.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'''s Will Vandom, like Doremi, is often shown getting terrible grades as well. To make matters worse, the writers of the television series have taken away Will's energy powers, the main perk of her being the Guardians' leader, though it was restored to her later.

** In the 90's episodes Maggie is unintentionally this to any modern viewer who was either a baby at the time or not born yet.

* It has been debated whether or not ComicBook/ScottPilgrim can be considered a loser. On the one hand, he's a jobless college dropout who lives in a windowless hole in the wall where he has to share a bed with his gay roommate. . On the other hand, he plays bass in a Garage Band, has a pretty good circle of friends and is a pretty good guy who just made mistakes and wasn't able to learn his lessons from them until later on.
** One could consider it a mild Deconstruction.

** All of Scott's friends are this, barring Wallace Wells and a few others. However, its also PlayedWith in that compared to the more successful Evil Exes, they are genuinely good people and real while the Evil Exes are pretenious with nothing of value (or perhaps sinister) underneath (except possibly for Lucas Lee).

* Captain Haddock of ''{{Tintin}}'' fame is an overly verbose, recovering alcoholic, amazingly clumsy disaster magnet. ''The Castafiore Emerald'' in particular seems to be Herge running through the many ways he can possibly torment him. More than anything, he represents how everyday people suck- and the readers love him for it.
** Primarily because he's the only person to ever get away with using the phrase "Ten thousand blistering barnacles in a thundering typhoon!" without looking like a maniac. Much.
*** The good Captain also showed some moments of competence and actually contributed to the action, such as in ''The Red Sea Sharks'' and ''The Crab With the Golden Claws''. Although on the latter occasion he was already drunk off the fumes emanating from some broken wine barrels...

* The actions you commit in ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'' is basically one long string of the game saying, "You suck for buying\renting this game, you suck for playing it, you suck for liking it, you suck for buying\renting other shooter games, you suck for playing them, you suck for liking them..." WordOfGod is the only way to ''win'' is to not play at all.
** Played with, at best. Captain Martin Walker is a ruggedly handsome, physically imposing US officer in Delta Force, exactly the kind of character who is normally a projection of a usually male power fantasy. The game uses this trope in a meta way, as Walker's desire to be a hero and quasi-fourth wall breaking certainty that the events going on around him are a [[TheHerosJourney Hero's Journey]] just waiting for him to go through it proves to be his - and the player's - undoing.

** Pictured above is Homer Simpson. And while he ''is'' fat, ugly, lazy and stupid there's enough of a good human being in there for him to get some successes over time.

* The titular Karin of ''KamichamaKarin''. Her ONLY good feature is her fairly-cute looks. She's TERRIBLE academically, routinely scoring a flat 0 on tests, and celebrating wildly when she got through a test as the 30th-worst in the school (after weeks of [[TrainingFromHell Study From Hell]]). She's also terrible at athletics, including combat-training. And yes, even when she summons ''the unlimited power of the Goddess Athena'', she continues to [[HowDoIShotWeb suck at using it]]. She's not even good at making friends - before the story started, her only friend was her ''cat''. Arguably, the only reason why she's the central character is that the antagonists wants a Goddess Ring, and she's by far the easiest target. Even towards the end, she never really recovers from her suckitude - she wields ThePowerOfLove, but WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway?
