* The Advertising/TrixRabbit is occasionally given a chance to actually ''try'' the cereal depending on the outcome of a poll. People vote for him to get it ''every time'', and by now you would think the company would get that people [[TheWoobie really feel sorry for the guy]] and hate those [[CerealViceReward greedy kids]].

** Of course the audience is supposed to sympathize with the rabbit--they're supposed to want the cereal as bad as he does.
*** The message seems to be that the audience is supposed to sympathize with the kids, and feel ridiculously entitled to their cereal, thus becoming more insistent on buying it. Unfortunately, most kids seem to have a moral core that rates "don't be a jackass animal abuser" above "I deserve cereal because the kids become jackass animal abusers for it." Score one for basic human decency.
*** There have been a small number of ads where he did actually get to eat the cereal -- One of them is found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9wrx8YHH8A Here]]. In another, he tastes it, goes into his usual "description" monologue, and looks up to see that [[YankTheDogsChain the bowl is now empty]].

* A priceless [[SuperBowlSpecial Super Bowl]] Coke commercial where Macy Balloons of [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Stewie]] and WesternAnimation/{{Underdog}} are fighting (aka bumping into each other) in order to get that balloon of a Coke bottle. Eventually, the bottle starts to float away. Both characters turn and see a round shape on the horizon. It's [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} CHARLIE]] [[TheWoobie BROWN]], who then wins the prize. Watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xiMf5cCDy1I here]].
** Even better, he gets it in full view of a little girl in a blue dress and carrying a football (hint hint).

** The following season had Richmond win the premiership, having last won in 1980. They were up against heavy favorites Adelaide, who had placed first on the ladder for the 2017, and scored OneHundredAndEight against Adelaide's 60, [[CurbStompBattle even going as far as to deny them a goal in the second quarter]].

* The fanmade animatic ''[[WebVideo/GravityFallsDeepWoods Quest for the Northwest]]'' throws one to [[JerkassWoobie Pacifica Northwest]], who's given a break from her AbusiveParents and runs away a few hours to have fun with Dipper and Mabel. Another is thrown at [[UnluckyExtra the "Free Pizza" guy]], who finally manages to get a pizza when the kids offer him one.

* AustralianRulesFootball: Going into the 2016 season, the Western Bulldogs had only won one premiership, way back in 1954, and hadn't played in a Grand Final since 1961. During that time, they had lost seven Preliminary Finals between 1985 and 2010, narrowly avoided being merged in 1989, and suffered near-constant financial troubles. Then, in round 3, captain Bob Murphy injured his knee and was out for the season. They finished seventh after the home-and-away season, and were underdogs (pardon the pun) all through the finals -- against the West Coast Eagles in Perth, then reigning three-time premiers Hawthorn, then Greater Western Sydney in Sydney, before finally making it to the Grand Final against the top-placed Sydney Swans... '''and they won.''' Even injured captain Bob Murphy got a happy ending, with coach Luke Beveridge calling him up during the presentations and giving his premiership medal to him.

* During the kayfabe era in the WWF, Main/{{Jobber}}s on television typically often didn't get got so much as any offense when they appeared on television, but many of them also appeared on televised cards at larger venues such as New York City's Madison Square Garden, where not only were they generally more competitive, some of them had solid victories over their foes. Examples include "Leaping" Lanny Poffo, Tiger Chung Lee, Danny Davis (and his masked alter-ego, Mr. X), Barry O, Scott Casey, The Moondogs (Spot, Rex and King), Los Conquistadores, Iron Mike Sharpe, S.D. Jones, Sam Houston, Tim Horner and others. Several were solid mid-carders; some had key roles in developing feuds (e.g., Davis, as part of his dishonest referee-turned-wrestler gimmick; Jones in AndreTheGiant's feud with BobbyHeenan) while others, such as the Moondogs and Sharpe had main-event matches at some point.

* Wrestling/StacyKeibler was a DesignatedMonkey for almost the entirety of her WWE career, despite being (mostly) a {{face}}: [[ShamefulStrip stripped]], [[SpankTheCutie spanked]], bullied by both men and women, beaten to within an inch of her life on several occasions, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking constantly negatively compared to more "traditionally" beautiful Divas]] such as Wrestling/TorrieWilson and Wrestling/TrishStratus. And to top it all, she won only three matches over the course of a four-year run. But there was a brief period late in 2004 when she TookALevelInBadass, ascended to main-event status, and - arguably her proudest moment - entered a Divas' Battle Royal at that year's ''Taboo Tuesday'' and managed to stay in the ring for most of the match, outlasting every other face Diva.
