** 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.

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' has several, all of which become serious once the tragic final arc begins. ** Enji Koma, the goofy-looking head waiter of Anteiku. He's primarily there as a ButtMonkey, getting no respect from his peers as he waxes nostalgic about his glory days. [[spoiler: He comes out of retirement, proving to be a DeathSeeker out to atone for his bloody past. It is left unclear whether or not he died during the last stand at V14]]. ** Seidou Takizawa, the easily-excited and jealous junior Investigator. He spends most of the series getting picked on, embarrassing himself while drunk, or otherwise being the ButtMonkey around the office. [[spoiler: He has up performing a HeroicSacrifice, and is presumed dead after being maimed by Noro. The sequel, however, reveals him to have survived as a deranged Half-Ghoul]].

* Naoki from ''{{NANA}}'' fits this trope particularly well: Despite all the drama that goes on in the series, he is oddly immune to it and (in present time) seemingly oblivious. The writer herself admits that he was written to round out the two rival bands in the story -- in essence, he's a throwaway character with no real backstory -- but he usually ends up being used as MrExposition in side stories.

* Sailor Chibi Moon in the ''Manga/SailorMoon'' anime. Her Pink Sugar Heart Attack rarely worked, and it was pathetically weak. This is in contrast to the manga where it actually does work well on a regular basis.

* Krillin is given this role in pretty much every ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' Movie he is in, the most famous case of him playing this role was in the ''Super Android 13'' movie. [[HumiliationConga In that movie he was beaten up by Chi-Chi, clonked his head twice, had hot coffee spilled on his head, had his face fried by a stray energy bolt, had a large pile of snow dumped on him, had Vegeta sent flying into him, slipped and skidded past the main villain when he was about to attack him and was humiliated in the hospital]]. -->'''Krillin''':[[LampshadeHanging "Why do these things always happen to me?"]]
