* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': Nelson & Murdock have a habit of getting caught up in the activities of the criminals in Hell's Kitchen. [[Creator/DeborahAnnWoll Karen Page]] in particular has a case of this. Over the course of the last four episodes of season 2, she's shot at twice, witnesses three gory murders, and is taken hostage by the Hand. When Brett Mahoney first sees her after Matt rescues her from the Hand, he asks her, "Is there any shitstorm you're ''not'' a part of?"

* In ''Fanfic/DreamingOfSunshine'', Team 7's C-rank level missions routinely end up A-rank or worse, S-Rank. This why the [[AscendedFanon Mission Desk Ninja]] fear assigning them missions, and [[DrawingStraws Special Jonin do not want to go on patrol with one.]]

* The titular toy store in ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'' seems to be one. The owner is an EvilOverlord wannabe who can't tell genders apart, a former government super-soldier shows up looking for a job only to randomly find ''another'' former government super-soldier already working there (one who is ''supposed to be dead''), UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan and JesusChrist are likewise resurrected solely to work retail, one employee is obsessed with ninjas to the point of stabbing people and hallucinating the world around him as a manga, a sentient talking car now works in the stock room, a disgruntled former employee plots for years (even getting elected to congress and recruiting Walter Mondale and SarahPalin in the process) to get revenge for being fired, a religion is founded around one employee, another briefly achieves world peace through the consumption of Cadbury Creme Eggs, and the whole place seems to have a "good twin" in the form of another store across the street with suspiciously similar workers where everything is perfect.

** In Part 3 onwards, it's explicitly stated that Stand users tend to attract one another, resulting in this trope.

** In Part 3 onwards, it's explicitly stated that Stand users tend to attract one another, resulting in this trope. This ends up sparking the main plot of part 4, as serial killer Yoshikage Kira acquiring a Stand gets him discovered by another Stand user by complete coincidence (involving stolen sandwiches), ending his years of staying virtually undetected and throwing him against a bunch of supernatural people who don't appreciate him or his "line of work" too much.

* Todd Chavez of ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseman'' has a bizarre tendency to go on wacky misadventures given the otherwise-serious nature of the show, including one episode where [[PrinceAndPauperPlot he and the Prince of Cordovia swap places]].

* Most of the weirdness in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' can be directly or indirectly linked to Tedd, and only half of that's stuff he [[MadScientist created]] rather than attracted. Without him, neither Ellen nor the Goo would even have existed, Abraham wouldn't have woken, Damien might not have found Grace (or would at least have taken longer to find her) . . . The only thing he's completely unconnected to is Nanase and Susan's backstory.
** [[OneDegreeOfSeparation Nanase is Tedd's cousin though,]] so that just leaves Susan. Whose backstory involves Nanase...
*** And things seem to be going back to Tedd's mother / Nanase's aunt, who in-comic is TheGhost, but who seems to have had a... say, interesting backstory.
** Tedd may be a ''source'' of weirdness, but Elliot seems to be the guy weird stuff happens ''to'', not all of it Tedd-related. Possibly due to his parents being the poster-characters for UnusuallyUninterestingSight, he himself is unable to grasp that, for example, having a gryphon ask him directions might be notable.

* Most ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'':
** The city of Moperville, the main setting
of the weirdness in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' can be directly or indirectly linked to Tedd, and only half story, is described as the kind of that's place where [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=974 weird stuff he [[MadScientist created]] rather than attracted. Without him, neither Ellen nor happens,]] and neighboring towns treat the Goo would Moperville newspaper like a tabloid. While it's eventually revealed that the town has [[BackgroundMagicField elevated levels of ambient magic]] that [[MagneticPlotDevice draw all kinds of strangeness to it,]] it's implied that the place was weird even have existed, Abraham wouldn't have woken, Damien might not have found Grace (or would at least have taken longer to find her) . . . The only thing he's completely unconnected to is Nanase and Susan's backstory.
before the ambient magic became a problem.

*** And things seem to be going back to Tedd's mother / Nanase's aunt, who in-comic is TheGhost, but who seems to have had a... say, interesting backstory.
** Tedd may be a ''source'' of weirdness, but
Elliot seems to be get more than his fair share of strangeness even by Moperville's already elevated standards. To start off, he is [[GenderBender gender-bent]] against his will in a series of events resulting in an OppositeSexClone. Later, a simple walk in the guy park results in him getting kidnapped by a hedgehog person. He's [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=950 attacked by a gremlin-like monster]] at school, and by a [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1229 dragon]] at the martial arts dojo. He apparently thinks nothing of a [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1732 griffin asking him for directions.]] He eventually wises up to his status enough to correctly predict that [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2052 his date would be interrupted]] by [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2088 something weird stuff happens ''to'', not all happening.]] Basically, weird things happen to everyone in the comic. Things happen to the rest of it Tedd-related. Possibly the cast due to his parents being some personal reason or another. Things happen to Elliot just because.
** When something weird has to happen to someone outside of
the poster-characters for UnusuallyUninterestingSight, he himself main cast, it usually chooses Rhoda. When an Immortal makes a brief appearance on live TV, [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1035 guess who's getting interviewed.]] When a giant boar finds its way into Moperville, [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1337 guess who it encounters first.]] When she and Elliot happen to be at the mall at the same time, the resulting griffin attack is unable to grasp that, for example, having a gryphon ask him directions might be notable.almost expected.

** It makes a certain amount of sense for each crew. Kirk's ''Enterprise'' was exploring the fringes of explored space and engaged in a Cold War with the Klingons and the Romulans. Picard's ''Enterprise'' and crew were designed to undertake every possible role, from diplomacy to combat to exploration to scientific studies, with their orders reflecting this. Deep Space 9 was not only situated in a hotbed of Cardassian, Bajoran and Federation politics, it was also guarding the only known stable wormhole to the Gamma Quadrant, served as the front line in several wars and was right next to the meddlesome Bajoran Prophets. ''Voyager'' was alone in the Delta Quadrant, with little to no knowledge of what lay ahead.

** All the events of the first episode are underscored by Naota's constant comments about his town, how "everything is normal", "nothing amazing happens here", etc. Then at the end of the first episode, Kanti the robot and Haruko are making bread while Naota says, "and everything's back to normal .. nothing amazing."
