* In ''VideoGame/PokerNight2'', most of [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} GLaDOS]]' dialogue directed at [[FeaturelessProtagonist The Player]] indicate this, but then again, so does her dialogue with just about ALL of the characters.

* Deconstructed to the nth degree in ''LightNovel/ReZero'' with Subaru Natsuki, who embodies all the core traits of this. And with his eventual GroundhogsDayLoop levels of suffering, eventually shows how such a person would actually work in real life, culminating into one hell of a [[TearJerker tearjerking]] Self inflicted TheReasonYouSuckSpeech in Episode 18. [[spoiler: All the suffering he goes through up till then has been, to his self-loathing and realization, to be the result of his rotten character, a person who has done absolutely nothing productive his whole life, in spite of having all the time in the world, foolishly thinking that all the knowledge he gained from doing nothing but gaming and bingeing on anime, manga and Light Novels, that it could get him a better life in another world simply by being teleported there, only to find this to be not at all what happens. He states multiple times at that point that he hates himself for it.]] Case in point:

--> '''Subaru''': Before I got into the situation that led me to all of you, do you have any idea what I did? I did nothing. I've never done a single thing. I had all that time, all that freedom... I could have done ''anything'', but I never did a ''thing!'' And this is the result! What I am now is the result! All of my powerlessness, all of my incompetence, is the product of my rotten character. That's right. I have no character. Even when I thought I could live here, nothing changed. At heart, I'm just a small, cowardly, filthy piece of trash, who's always worried about how others see me. And nothing... '''Nothing about me has changed!''' ...I absolutely hate myself...

* [[Music/DireStraits "Money for Nothing"]] was made up of quotes that Mark Knopfler overheard from an employee at an appliance store; the racist, homophobic, misogynistic, and otherwise ignorant and loutish statements that the employee was uttering struck Knopfler as being emblematic of everything that he hated about rock fans, and the inclusion of some of the more offensive quotes ("see the little faggot with the earring and the makeup", "look at that mama, she got it stickin' in the camera, man, we could have some fun", "Hawaiian noises", etc.) was intended to hammer home just how much of a boorish loser the man was.

* Since ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis,'' Superboy-Prime has been an unsubtle jab at fanboys and people who hate change, and because of it was a unique villain. His ultimate fate, however, was something of a kick in the balls as he ended up on Earth-Prime (our Earth), reduced to typing angry posts on the DCComics forums from his parents' basement.

* [[TheHero The protagonist]], Vyse, can become this if you get a low [[ButThouMust Swashbuckler Rating]] in ''SkiesOfArcadia.'' The complete embodiment of this trope is having between zero to five points (and it ''does'' take some effort to sink that low) thus earning you the [[SarcasmMode endearing title]] of "Vyse the Ninny." The result of this will be ridicule from [=NPCs=], higher store prices, and the inability to access certain features, such as crew members (one of them needs a high rating to get).

* Kinnikuman, and his son Mantaro Kinniku, from the manga ''[[UltimateMuscle Kinnikuman]]'' are extreme examples of this; at the beginning of their respective adventures, they are both impossibly stupid, hideous and pathetic in almost every way, only ever succeeding through dumb luck. However, due to CerebusSyndrome this is slowly peeled away to reveal competent, yet silly, characters.

* Despite a persistent false urban legend that the Finnish government [[http://www.snopes.com/disney/films/finland.asp banned him because he doesn't wear pants]], DonaldDuck is actually adored in Finland to the point many children (and adults) distinctly remember learning to read from CarlBarks' Donald Duck comics, which remains the most read weekly magazine in the country. MickeyMouse doesn't get much fandom because of his goody-goodiness, Donald is loved precisely for his utter loser status and for his guts that rarely allow him to give up.
