* ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'': Ziggy.

to:

* ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' has had a share of these characters throughout its many seasons.
** The best known examples are off course Bulk and Skull from the original ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''. A FatAndSkinny duo of {{Butt Monkey}}s who constantly try out schemes for their own gain, only for said schemes to backfire. Usually this results in slapstick humor. The duo was apparently so popular, that a stand alone series was planned for them in which they ran a hotel. This was the reason why the characters got turned into chimpanzees for the first half of PowerRangersTurbo. But ultimately, the higher ups decided such a series would not work, causing the actors to return to Power Rangers.
** Joel Rawlings of ''Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue'' is this. Most of the humor of this series derives from his failed attempts to get dates with a female scientist or trying to skip training.
** ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm'': While the villains in this season are pretty lighthearted and comedic to begin with, villainesses Marah and Kapri fit this trope, as their main purpose seems to be playing the role of spoiled brats to their uncle [[BigBad Lothor]].
** ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder'' has Devon and Cassidy. They are frequently compared to Bulk and Skull, but play a much more subdued role compared to them. Cassidy and Devon start out as an AlphaBitch and her lackey, who, like Bulk and Skull, try out schemes for their own gain, only for them to backfire. But later on, they grow out of these stereotypes and this role and develop distinct personalities.
** ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'' features Norg the Yeti. He is a dimwitted Yeti who lived in the cave one of the main villains decided to take as his base.
**
''Series/PowerRangersRPM'': Ziggy.Ziggy Grover, the green ranger, fits this trope pretty well. His only task in this team seems to be being the victim of as many accidents as possible.

* ''BoyMeetsWorld'': Eric started off as the ChickMagnet but when that role was taken over by Shawn he became this. And then things just got [[CloudCuckooLander weird...]]

* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'': Felicity Smoak went from one-off episode guest appearance to essentially the female lead thanks to her awkward quips and the actress's comic timing. (Though she also acts as TheSmartGuy). As the show started off rather sober without a resident funny guy her handful of scenes significantly lightened the mood (she actually managing to get a ''smile'' out of [{{ByronicHero}} Oliver]]) and she was brought on as a regular. [[spoiler: In an unusual case she's become Oliver's main LoveInterest while also remaining the PluckyComicRelief.]]

** This is true with ''all'' JossWhedon shows, but there is still one or two characters in each series who do virtually nothing ''but'' be funny, in addition to fulfilling their role in the cast. In chronological order: Lorne on ''Series/{{Angel}}'', Wash on ''{{Series/Firefly}}'', and Topher on ''{{Series/Dollhouse}}''.
