** ''Stardust Crusaders'': Several, the already mentioned Joseph Joestar getting in awkward situations. Jean Pierre Polnareff, a french who is afraid of egyptian W.C. and more than once finds himself in a life or death situation that involves a W.C.. Also, Hol Horse, a servant of Dio who pursues the party. At first serious business, later comic relief.

Also, Hol Horse, a servant of Dio who pursues the party. At first serious business, later comic relief.



** ''Stone Ocean'': Foo Fighters[[spoiler:, being a bunch of plankton taking the form of a girl,]] thinks that prison is a fun place. Narciso Annasui who later becomes the main comic relief as being madly in love with Jolyne, he is not afraid to express it in front of her only to be received by a fist.
** ''STEEL BALL RUN'': The deuteragonist Gyro Zeppeli, while not being the serious cool guy he spend times planning bad jokes and songs that Johnny [[SarcasmMode gladly receives ]].
** ''Jojolion'': Joushuu Higashikata appears to be this, on his case is creepy though.

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamOO'', this is literally Patrick Colasour's primary role. Every battle he's in, he gets shot down, usually by a Gundam, yet unlike most other characters, he survives every time, earning him the nickname "The Immortal Colasour". ''And he's considered the best pilot in Europe!''
** He's also loyal to a fault, as shown when the UN-Armed Forces ''abandons him'' in the middle of the Taklamakan Desert after his AEU Enact was shot down and everyone assumed he was dead. He ''still'' returned to the base as if nothing had happened a few days later.

* When he's not being a BadAss, or the resident ButtMonkey (yes, he's actually both), Jun Manjoume of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' tends to be this, especially when it comes to his [[AllLoveIsUnrequited hilarious crush]] on Asuka or when his [[SmallAnnoyingCreature spirit partners]] are involved.

Pen-Pen considerably more than Misato, it has to be said. [[spoiler: [[ShooOutTheClowns When Pen-Pen leaves]], you know that the series has given up on plucky comic antics altogether and has now [[MoodWhiplash completely moved into depressing]] territory.]]

* Minoru Mineta from ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' is literally a Plucky Comic Relief, as in, his powers revolve around plucking sticky berries from his hair.

* In ''Manga/AnimalLand'', [[EverythingsBetterWithLlamas llamas]] being plucky comedy reliefs seems to be their entire species schtick.
* Sasha "[[FanNickname Potato Girl]]" Brauss of ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. In a series set in a near hopeless war against towering, man eating monsters, she's the resident goofball, with an [[BigEater appetite]] about as big as the Colossal Titan.
** Connie runs a close second behind her, and is often paired with Sasha for comic moments. In a series where named characters die in handfuls every arc, they were also planned to be killed as the series progressed, but were spared by their popularity and editor warnings.
** Hanji Zoe, considering how she is an eccentric MadScientist and has an unhealthy appreciation for Titans. But as the series continues, we are reminded just ''why'' she is a Squad Leader and senior officer in the Survey Corps.

* Shiro Kabuto from ''Anime/MazingerZ'' and ''Anime/GreatMazinger''. Although he is smarter than he looks and he can be an BadassAdorable, he often provides comic relief, or by pulling TooDumbToLive stunts or by being a DeadpanSnarker and the voice of reason.
** Boss and the remainder of TheTeamNormal also were Plucky Comic Relief characters. Boss even lampshaded is in one ''Anime/GreatMazinger'', wondering why he must be the Plucky Comic Relief.
* In the last episode of ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}} NEXT'', Lina concludes that the only reason Martina survived the confrontation with the BigBad was because she is the Plucky Comic Relief character.



* Uzura in ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' spends much of the second season filling this role, although she has a few plot-important moments towards the end and is never quite able to stay completely detached from the action.

He's kind of like Matsuda in that he's a member of a special taskforce with a tendency toward humorous bumbling (Saito has a few plot-important moments towards the end twice been shown using his own name when undercover), and his unrequited crush on [[FairCop Kirihara]] is never quite able to stay completely detached from the action.
