* Calamity James in ''ComicBook/TheBeano''. The entire point of the comic strip is that the universe has it in for him, and the humour comes from the never ending stream of horrible luck he goes through.



* In ''{{Comicbook/Bone}}'', the Stupid, Stupid Rat-Creatures are regularly punished for their henching (or one's love of quiche). Their leader, Kingdok, [[spoiler:even has Roque Ja make the phrase "Cat got your tongue?" literal.]]

This seems to coincide with Simone's belief that Cheshire is an evil character, and that her inevitable beat down is LaserGuidedKarma for her despicable actions.

* Razguts/Raznuts in the ''{{TabletopGame/Warhammer 40000}}'' comic ''ComicBook/DeffSkwadron'' walks the fine line between this and ButtMonkey. Let's put it this way: only two members of the Skwadron lose a plane OncePerEpisode. Killboy loses a plane every mission because his flying strategy is based largely on RammingAlwaysWorks. Raz loses a plane every mission because in the event the enemy doesn't shoot him down, his allies shoot him down (and usually make unkind references to turning back to machine-gun him), and when neither of those happen, he crashes.
** He also usually ends up bailing out into something nasty, like a SharkPool or an enemy army. However, he somehow keeps surviving.

* [[ComicBook/JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac Squee]] also qualifies as this.

* Many of the characters in ''{{Ultimate X Men}}'' have a bad time, but Beast/Henry Mc Coy in particular can't seem to catch a break. Between [[spoiler: being disowned, and then used, by his family, tricked into betraying his comrades by an Internet troll, constant angst with his girlfriend, being tortured and experimented on multiple times, and dying -- twice -- his eventually being {{killed off for real}} seems almost merciful.]]

* In ''ComicBook/TransformersRobotsInDisguise''; Zetca and Dirge have become this. Zetca (A former Autobot) gets beaten almost to death by two Decepticons after getting into an argument, and then beaten up by another, and almost framed for murder. Dirge (A Decepticon) finds himself bored with the war and makes friends with an Autobot. That Autobot is killed by explosions from the planet (which wasn't his fault), and he's almost killed by the Autobot's superior because he survived. Later, he gets a job at a garbage plant, then witnesses a murder, gets mind controlled, and beaten up. When the autobot Prowl breaks the mind control[[note]]and subsequently gets mind controlled[[/note]] by "killing" the bot controlling him, he tries to kill Dirge because he witnessed another murder, became one of Cybertron's most wanted because of this incident.
