* Travis Touchdown of ''NoMoreHeroes'' is... well... every negative stereotype of an {{otaku}} there is. Suda 51 was not subtle. And then the sequel has him ''undoing'' all of that, becoming a character worthy of actual respect... or at least approaching it. And even then he's still way the fuck more of an otaku than most.

* While most pink-type ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' leads tend to fall into this, [[Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure Tsubomi Hanasaki]] really takes the cake. Shy, introverted, not much of an energetic person, can't do much without her friends/teammates, goes into a panic when things turn south. Both [[QuirkyMiniBossSquad Sasorina]] and [[GenkiGirl Erika]] have decried her as "the weakest Precure ever". The series, though, shows her evolution into a much more stronger person and, when we see her next in ''Anime/PrettyCureAllStars DX 3'', she's busy helping RookieRedRanger [[SuitePrettyCure Hibiki]] when the teams are scattered.

* Bella, from StephenieMeyer's ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''. The intent was apparently to portray her as someone who thinks of herself as unattractive, uncoordinated and basically less than average (as many teenagers often do), while actually receiving more attention than she herself notices from everyone, including the males in her school. Whether it worked or not is open to much heated debate.

* Gang-du from ''Film/TheHost'' is a slacker deadbeat dad whose life is going nowhere, he's lazy, slightly gluttonous and overall a bit stupid. However, it's explained that his awful childhood, with a mother who abandoned him and a busy father, made him this way, a lack of protein affecting his brain and turning him slightly narcoleptic.

And like Fry from ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}'', his massive heart and incredible amounts of courage, selflessness and gumption make him so special.

In short, this is where the {{everyman}} character or AudienceSurrogate is a "typical" loser like [[LowestCommonDenominator half the audience]] is [[ViewersAreMorons imagined to be]]. This is usually intended to make them endearing. A sub trope is LoserProtagonist.

* Possibly the oldest examples of this in video gaming are [[SpaceQuest Roger Wilco]] and [[VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry Larry Laffer]].

* ''The Dinette Set'' depicts the misadventures of a group of vapid, boorish, materialistic, overweight, middle-aged clods as representative of contemporary suburban Middle America.

* {{Sony}} obviously feels this way about their customer base, considering their "All I Want For Christmas" marketing campaign. The rap can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tX_3GEvF8RQ here]].

** Her friend Bernice and older brother Brad are worse. Bernice is relatively unattractive, constantly puts down Luann, and got jealous when Luann became too close to her long-lost older brother. Brad used to be lazy and antagonistic towards his sister; he then TookALevelInBadass and became a firefighter, but is now supremely unconfident about his [[UglyGuyHotWife disproportionally attractive girlfriend Toni]] ("Is it me or Santa she's kissing?").
