** While Rick is typically a drunken JerkAss, Doofus!Rick is definitely not the case. Because of Doofus!Rick being soft-spoken and having no children of his own (which means no corresponding Morty), the other Ricks ridicule and ostracize him.

** Stan and Kyle also suffer from the effects of living in a CrapsackWorld like South Park. Stan lives with, aside from a decent sensible mother, an [[BigBrotherBully abusive older sister]] a ManChild father, and a suicidal grandfather, but the highest points of Stan's Woobie status were when [[spoiler: Wendy broke up with him for four seasons]], and the DramaBomb-laden "You're Getting Old". Kyle's life might be slightly worse than Stan's considering what happens to him in more recent episodes, and not only that, but his parents are an over-bearing MamaBear and an AmoralAttorney that shifts between being a decent father or, on occasion, treating Kyle like a WellDoneSonGuy. Furthermore, in one episode Kyle gets sued and the plaintiff attorney is none other than ''his own father.''

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Cyberchase}}'': Delete. Even though he's one of Hacker's henchmen, he's simply just too much of a KindheartedSimpleton to even be a JerkassWoobie. Just watch "The Fairy Borg Father" and chances are high you'll want to reach into your screen and cuddle the poor robot.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'':True to the comics, the sheer amount of crap poor Spidey gets put through over the course of this show is unbelievable.

to:

** Tweek is considered this by some, being an anxiety-ridden NervousWreck with [[AbusiveParents parents]] who feed him unhealthy amounts of possibly meth-infused coffee to deal with his "ADHD" and, by his father's own admission, have him work in the backroom of their coffee shop all day.

** Fenton Crackshell was extraordinarily good at counting, and he did become the super hero Gizmoduck. But he also had a big case of bad luck and a tendency to screw things up, and he was beaten up by the Beagles ''four times'' in one episode alone. And he lived with his trailer trash mother, who would often care more about watching TV than listening to what her only son had to say. Not to mention that he was stuck with dating Gandra Dee, who often was ungrateful or cold-hearted towards him. Of course, we're still talking about a relatively light-hearted cartoon, and plenty of this was played for laughs. But the poor guy deserved all of the breaks, that he could ever catch...

** Doofus Drake. While he's typically used as comic relief, what the show reveals about his life isn't very positive. On top of being saddled with a cruel name, he's bullied at school by the Beagle Boys' younger brother and out of it by the Junior Woodchucks. Even Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby aren't above taking cracks at him and [[TheFriendNobodyLikes don't seem to really like him]], despite letting him hang around.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'':
** Kaeloo is sweet, loving and cares about her friends, yet pretty much everyone around her is a {{jerkass}} to her. There's also the fact that when she gets angry, she [[HulkingOut transforms into a giant monster]] [[AndIMustScream whose actions are beyond her control]] and beats up her beloved pals. There have even been actual episodes in the show which all but suggested she was ''suicidal''.
** Stumpy is an ugly idiot who sucks at almost everything and is constantly ridiculed by [[WithFriendsLikeThese his own best friends]]. [[spoiler:In Episode 105, he finally calls them out on it, and performs an IWantSong detailing how all he wants is for people to accept him for who he is.]]
** Quack Quack is tortured on an everyday basis by his [[WithFriendsLikeThese "friend"]] [[{{Jerkass}} Mr. Cat]], yet he forgives him each time. Throughout the show, he is put through constant pain and abuse by Mr. Cat, such as being blown up, being tricked into breaking up with his girlfriend, [[ShamefulStrip being forced to strip in public]] and even being DraggedOffToHell.
** Eugly the rabbit is one of the nicest characters on the show, yet she is constantly ridiculed and made fun of by ''everyone'' except [[NiceGuy Quack Quack]], which even Kaeloo joins in. It doesn't help that she's also [[FragileFlower very emotional]] and bursts into tears for the smallest things,

* H.E.L.P.eR on ''WesternAnimation/{{The Venture Brothers}}''. Similar to Woodhouse on ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', H.E.L.P.eR is the long-suffering domestic servant who essentially raised the show's protagonists, but is generally treated as a broken-down machine without feelings. He frequently suffers terrible mishaps and is often broken and all but destroyed, with few of the characters batting an eyelash.

**Sheep. He's constantly being chased by the military to be used in a sheep powered ray gun, beaten up by a mean old rich lady, struggles to fit into the big city at first and has been abused by a bratty little girl who insists that he's a "doggie". Poor, poor Sheep.

** Skywarp from ''TransformersAnimated''. Maybe it's the pantophobia[[note]]fear of everything[[/note]], maybe it's the likelyhood that he gets picked on the most out of all the clones. Whatever it is, you just wanna give the guy a BIG hug (of course, he'd probably be scared of that too.).
** [[TransformersAnimated Sari Sumdac]] becomes one in the second and third seasons, starting when she gets kicked out of her home by the CorruptCorporateExecutive that had taken over her father's company and being told there's no legal proof she even ''exists''. Ouch.
