** On occasion, in bigger promotions, the jobber, jobber-to-the-stars and mid-carders would -- particularly at BShow and CShow house shows -- get title opportunities against champions (usually, brought along to help anchor a card or, especially if they have great potential, to show rare leadership opportunities) they would never get on television.

* During the kayfabe era in the [[Wrestling/{{WWE}}|WWF]], [[Main/{{Jobber}}|jobbers]] 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.

* Howard Finkle, Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s ring announcer during the 90s and early 2000s, was a ButtMonkey almost any time he had any role in any storyline. However, during a feud between the mutually mulleted Wrestling/{{X-Pac}} and Wrestling/JeffJarrett, Jarrett bullied Finkle (who was bald) as part of the buildup. After X-Pac won the hair versus hair match, Finkle got to help him shave Jarrett's head.

** Speaking of Los Conquistadores, they were one of the last two teams remaining at the WWF's 1988 SurvivorSeries, lasting 42 minutes before falling to the newly-turned-heel Powers of Pain. While they were mercilessly beaten on by the face team every time they were in the ring, they somehow survived until the very end.

One way this can happen is if the "Dog" character [[SexualKarma gets into a relationship]]. This can be very irritating to fans of the other character if it comes across as a [[StandardHeroReward reward]] and objectifies - in particularly bad versions of this; they might come across as - by this trope's very metaphor - a "[[FreudWasRight bone]]." (Even "better", listen to [[UnpleasableFanbase fans complain]] if this [[EntitledToHaveYou doesn't happen]].)

However, their inevitable fear of him, combined with his awkwardness, nearly sends him over the DespairEventHorizon... until one little girl decides to back him up, soon followed by all of the now-encouraged townspeople.
