The OnlySaneMan (let's call him Bob) who is [[SurroundedByIdiots surrounded by morons]] and [[ButtMonkey never gets]] [[TheChewToy a break]]. If [[ThrowTheDogABone anything good happens to him]] in a given episode, it will inevitably be [[YankTheDogsChain undone by episode's end]].

No matter what Bob does, no matter how noble his intentions, he just cannot get the respect of his peers. It's not that Bob deserves to be unhappy. He's a genuinely NiceGuy who in some other story would be loved and respected. But since he's in a comedy ensemble, his role is to suffer to keep the humor rolling, even if the audience finds him sympathetic.

While the "I don't get no respect" line is indelibly associated with Creator/RodneyDangerfield, the characters he plays are ''not'' examples of No Respect Guy (those are the UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist). Also note that the other characters have to treat Bob unfairly for him to be playing this trope. If he's as stupid as everyone else, he's just a ButtMonkey.

Subtrope of OnlySaneMan. If the character themselves complain about this, it's DudeWheresMyRespect.


[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]
* PlayedWith Knuckles from ''Manga/SonicX''. On the one hand, he is the one who maintains on task returning back to their world and gathering the Chaos Emeralds. On the other hand, he's still infamously gullible (though Cosmo chalks it up to him wanting to give people chances) and his short temper and pride makes it easy form him to get into problems.
* Kiyone in ''Manga/TenchiMuyo''.
* Brief, AKA "Geek Boy" in ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'' is the unlucky TagalongKid to the main characters. [[spoiler:Things look up for him near the end when after being revealed to be a {{Bishonen}}, Panty falls for him. Unfortunately, he's whisked off by the villains to be the ApocalypseMaiden.]]
* Godai in ''Manga/MaisonIkkoku''.
* This coupled with DemotedToExtra caused Misawa's FaceHeelTurn in ''Anime/YuGiOhGX''.
* Bossun of ''Manga/SketDance'' fall's into this occasionally.
* In a way, Hideki from ''Anime/NerimaDaikonBrothers''.8
* Deconstructed in Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion with Shinji Ikari. [[spoiler:Years of this treatment cranked UpToEleven have convinced him that no one loves him. In which case, there's no reason for himself or anyone else to live...]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}''... dear '''Lord''', Empowered. Setting aside the fact that the general populace and criminal element all regard her as a [[FauxActionGirl joke]], the level of [[AlphaBitch emotional abuse]] and [[HandsomeLech sexual harassment]] she deals with from the 'Superhomeys' reaches the point where ''they'' are the ones posting pictures of her on the internet after the villains leave her [[BoundAndGagged chained up humiliatingly]] for them to find. Not to mention the fact that her teammates forgot about her after a battle and left her trapped/embedded in the landscape ''more than once''. At least one reader has wondered why she has not [[FaceHeelTurn thrown her lot in with the Forces of Evil]] out of sheer [[WhosLaughingNow spite]].
** Probably because the Forces of Evil ''also'' humiliate her and ''sell'' pictures of her tied up and half-nude on the internet. Who'd kill the, um, cash cow?
** She's also genuinely dedicated to fighting crime and being a hero. Presumably it's the only thing keeping her from [[TakeAThirdOption buying a muumuu and running off to become a hermit]].
* At least from his son Shinji's perspective, Paul Patton Jr. gets little to no respect, both in and out of his [[ComicBook/TheFoxHunt Fox persona]]. Shinji becoming "The Ghost Fox" is largely based on his feelings of wanting to honor his father's super-heroic altruism.

* Nick Schaffer (Breckin Meyer) in ''Film/RatRace''. The most serious character, and the only one who doesn't jump at the opportunity of 2 million dollars, only entering the race after he gets an advantage (a helicopter pilot when the airport tower is broken). From there on, it gets worse.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansTroubleInTokyo'': Beast Boy. ''Always'' Beast Boy.
* ''WesternAnimation/SharkTale'' This is Oscar's main motivation: He doesn't seem to get much respect at the Whale Wash, and seems to get himself into unwanted situations. In his youth, he admired his dad Earl's work at the Wash so much he decided to bring it to school for show and tell, only for the class to [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer cruelly mock him]]. This tragic disaster causes him consider himself a loser and a "nobody." Since then, Oscar believes that in order to get the respect he yearns for, he has to become rich and famous. He finds his chance when the shark chasing him is killed by a fallen anchor, and takes the credit becoming known as the "Sharkslayer." Oscar soon lets his great white lie go into his head and make him rich, not noticing or appreciating what he already had, until Angie blurts out her crush and genuine respect for him, leading Oscar to his CharacterDevelopment.
* Kikuchiyo from ''Film/SevenSamurai'' is a bumbling wannabe samurai who is a complete laughing stock of his companions, especially [[TheGadfly Heihachi]]. No matter what he tries, he looks like an idiot in front of everyone. Though he does earn a little bit of respect once in a while [[spoiler: and after he dies, he is buried with his sword like the other three samurai casualties]].
* Park Gang-du from ''Film/TheHost'' is a tragicomic example, an amiable but slow-witted single father who gets little respect from anyone around him. His wife abandoned him, his siblings disrespect him, his father gets exasperated with him constantly sleeping on the job and eating pieces of the customers' food, and even his daughter, who means the world to him, gets annoyed with him as well. And when she is captured by a giant monster, the American and Korean doctors refuse to listen to him when he tries to tell them that she's still alive.

* Honsou from Creator/GrahamMcNeill's ''Storm of Iron'' and ''Literature/{{Ultramarines}}'' series. He is at first hated by the other Iron Warrior Space Marines for being a 'half breed'. After his promotion to Warsmith, the other Warsmiths hate and disrespect him, making extreme and insane demands of him. After destroying armies worth of enemies he still gets no respect, with random human {{mooks}} in bars telling him he's an idiot.
* Ponder Stibbons from ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'s'' Unseen University branch. At least until ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'' when he realizes he's had so many jobs foisted on him over the years, he wields enough power to ''make'' people listen to him.
** Specifically, he holds twelve jobs at the university (not counting football coach), giving him twelve votes on the university council. This means that no matter how anyone else votes, he forms a majority all by himself.
-->'''Ridcully:''' Didn't anyone notice that you were getting all this power?
-->'''Ponder:''' Yes, sir, me. Only I thought it was responsibility and hard work. None of you ever bother with details, you see. Technically, I have to report to other people, but usually the other people are ''me''.
* Mat Cauthon in ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime''. By the middle of the series, he's one of the best fighters and generals in the world, but due to PoorCommunicationKills, few of the other characters realize this, and many treat him like he's a worthless jerk. He gets crap thrown at him, LockedOutOfTheLoop during an important mission, [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale molested by a queen]], etc. When his army defeats a much larger force against all odds, the enemy commander rides out to congratulate... [[WanderingMinstrel Thom Merrilin]], who he thought was the general.
* Poor Gunner First Class Jurgen from the ''Literature/CiaphasCain'' series always gets overlooked by ''everyone'' -- most of his fellow soldiers don't consider him a "proper" Guardsman and none of the official histories or memoirs so much as mention him. (Exception: Sulla's... [[PurpleProse "writings"]]... mention him as Cain's aide, but never by name.) Admittedly, he's a walking disaster area hygenically and [[spoiler: a blank, which makes people either respond to him with revulsion or flat-out ignore him]], but you'd think someone would notice the number of situations he'd personally [[{{BFG}} melta-gunned]] into submission. Luckily the one person who's opinion matters to him is Cain, and Cain thinks Jurgen is the more heroic of the pair and is constantly annoyed by the oversight.
* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' has several people who fit the description, but Tyrion Lannister is one of the most noteworthy. Try to restrain your [[RoyallyScrewedUp royal]] [[EvilNephew nephew's]] [[TheCaligula sociopathic tendencies?]] Get blamed for his behavior instead. Take steps to fix the city's severe food shortage? Nobody seems to notice or care. Annihilate most of an invading army's navy and lead a charge to drive the survivors back? The first gets attributed to other people, the second is supplanted by a much larger charge by friendly reinforcements, and he gets seriously disfigured to boot. This all culminates in him getting framed for the aforementioned nephew's murder and being forced to flee for his life.

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]
* Fargo of ''{{Series/Eureka}}'', and deservedly so, but his new role [[spoiler: as head of GD]] has actually lent itself to making him become a more responsible, and yes, respected character. Even before then, and acknowledging he caused plenty of problems thanks to [[CuriousAsAMonkey certain tendencies]], he was still the assistant to the director of GD and apparently competent enough as an OmnidisciplinaryScientist himself to participate or be made responsible for whatever was needed that week, but had his position derided by other specialists at GD. Except Larry, who is always competing to take over his position that is.
* Freddie in ''Series/ICarly''. He is often abused by Sam, manipulated by Carly, and oh yeah, humiliated in front of the whole school.
* Michael Bluth in ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment''.
** Though CharacterizationMarchesOn and in later episodes/seasons, we discover that Michael is almost as much of a hopeless weirdo as the rest of his family. He just pretends that he's not.
* The character of Dick Louden on ''Series/{{Newhart}}'' was a No Respect Guy.
* Dave Nelson on ''Series/NewsRadio'', at least after the rest of the cast has been {{flanderized}} into stupidity.
* To some extent, [=McGee=] on ''Series/{{NCIS}}''.
** I'd say so, [[PhraseCatcher Probie!]]
** Really, [=McGee=] and Tony sort of trade this role back and forth (although, many would argue Tony partly brings it on himself). Although neither of them is surrounded by morons.
* Drew Carey in ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow''. Despite being the most mild mannered and logical person in the whole cast, he doesn't get much praise from his boss, his co-worker Mimi disrespects him every chance she gets, and Drew's friends are just outright morons.
* This became Mike Nelson's shtick in the SciFi seasons of ''[[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]''.
* Whenever ''Series/TheKidsInTheHall'' did a skit as themselves, Kevin [=MacDonald=] inevitably took on this role.
* Justin in ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace''.
* On classic ''Series/DoctorWho'', Harry Sullivan spent most of his short time as a companion being picked on, insulted and belittled by the Fourth Doctor. To the point that the Doctor felt justified in shouting "HARRY SULLIVAN IS AN IMBECILE!" to the sky over a misjudgement (which, granted, would have blown up both Harry and the Doctor). He returned to his regular job very quickly and never looked back.
* Roy from ''Series/TheITCrowd'' is a notorious ButtMonkey who gets walked all over, and is so socially incompetent that he's usually too scared to fight back. And then there's Richmond, a mild-mannered Goth who garners even less respect than ''Roy''.

* American football has an excellent example in Donovan [=McNabb=]. In 11 years with the Philadelphia Eagles, he took them to a Super Bowl, five [=NFC=] championship games, and set most - if not all - of their passing records; this amounted to the fans booing him at every opportunity and his name being brought up every offseason when it came trade time.
** Thankfully for him he shirked it after being traded to Washington. When it came time for the Redskins to visit Philly he was treated to a standing ovation (which definitely says something considering he was on a Division Rival's team). After retirement he's generally treated in warm regard and is considered the greatest QB in Eagles History. His questionable opinions aren't making him any fans in his NFL Analyst life though.
* With [=McNabb's=] retirement in 2012, Jay Cutler of the Chicago Bears has moved into the role of the NFL's #1 no respect guy. In terms of starts, wins, and statistics, Cutler is arguably the best overall quarterback the Bears have had since Sid Luckman in the ''1940s'', but you wouldn't guess it by listening to the fans and media. The Bears have had one of the worst offensive lines in the league since Cutler joined the team, which leads to him being amongst the most sacked ([[TheChewToy and injured]]) quarterbacks in the league in a given year. He was injured in the 2010 NFC Championship game and did not return in the 2nd half. The resulting backlash from other players and the media questioning his toughness is something he may [[NeverLiveItDown never live down.]] (Nevermind the fact that he had a legitimate MCL sprain and was benched on the orders of his coaches.)
* Tom Coughlin of the New York Giants might be the coaching answer to [=McNabb=]. In twelve seasons with the team, he had a fair deal of success, including eight non-losing seasons, five playoff appearances, and two Super Bowl wins in 5 years (one of the which is considered one of the greatest upsets in NFL history), making him a guaranteed Hall of Fame inductee in the future. However, every time he lost so much as a single game, the fans and press suddenly put him on the hot seat. It got to the point where Coughlin resigned after three straight losing seasons with the team, which were the result of poor personnel decisions by the team management and numerous injuries to key players, because everyone was calling for the team to fire him.

* UsefulNotes/JohnAdams of ''Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix'' who is universally described as "obnoxious and disliked," a phrase taken from Adams' writings later in life.[[note]]although [[UnreliableNarrator other accounts]] describe him differently, so Adams was probably projecting the unpopularity he had as President onto his memories[[/note]]He perceives himself as being SurroundedByIdiots--that is, Congress. He predicts, accurately, that he'll be forgotten by historians in favor of colorful figures like [[Creator/BenjaminFranklin Franklin]] and [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington Washington]][[note]]again something the real Adams predicted[[/note]] despite the fact that he was one of the principal individuals in the independence movement. However, Franklin gives Adams a sharp lecture near the end of the show about how ''he'' should have a little more respect for his colleagues, as they are as proud and accomplished as Adams.

[[folder: Video Games ]]
* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'': Despite all the cases he won and how he solved cases most people thought were lost causes, no one ever respects him; the judge is always quick to scold Phoenix and rarely does so for the prosecution, all the witnesses berate Phoenix and treat him like an idiot, all the prosecutors denounce Phoenix as some newbie lawyer who don't know jack about how trials work, and Maya is [[TooDumbToLive a complete idiot]] when it comes to even the most basic logic and she even busts Phoenix's chops a few times, yet Phoenix swore to Mia to look after Maya so he can't just ditch her. The only other person who has it slightly worse than Phoenix is [[ButtMonkey Detective Gumshoe]].
** ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'': Apollo Justice arguably has it worse than his predecessor/mentor/employer Pheonix. Absolutely everybody he meets will take time out of their usual shenanigans just to make fun of him in some manner. Even [[spoiler: his own mother and little sister]] along with ''Phoenix himself'' mess with him. On the plus side, he didn't get quite as much hostility from the prosecution... until Blackquill came along.
** In one case Edgeworth fills in for Phoenix as a defense attorney and, accordingly, becomes one of these as well. He comes away with a new respect for his friendly rival; after all, Edgeworth knows that after this case he can go back to his cushy, everyone-loves-me job of being a prosecutor, but Phoenix puts up with this bullshit every day, ''on purpose'', because of his dedication to truth and justice.
** ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth'': Edgeworth's respect vanished immediately after he got the spotlight. In the first game, he gets accused of murder, is knocked out by a Proto Badger, is insulted by virtually everyone who isn't Kay or Gumshoe, gets whipped by Franziska constantly, encounters Oldbag ''twice'', and let's not even mention anything regarding his Steel Samurai fanboyism. The second game isn't much better: for about half the game, Courtney and Sebastian constantly treat him like a lousy prosecutor, try to take away his investigation rights, and seek to strip him of his badge.
* Luigi from ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'', especially the RPG spin-off games. In ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga'', most people don't know who Luigi is and refer to him as the guy in green or some other variant. In ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', the game hints that Luigi's successes in his own adventure is exaggerated since most of Luigi's allies always complains about how he screwed up a lot. However, in ''The Thousand-Year Door'', there is one Toad child who thinks Luigi is cooler than Mario (with apologies to Mario). There's also Pennington the detective, who takes one look at your outfit and deduces that you can only be the famous Luigi, and nothing can convince him otherwise. So Luigi gets respect sometimes.
* Youmu Konpaku from ''{{VideoGame/Touhou}}'', who is '[[LawfulGood too sweet]]'. She's a HypercompetentSidekick, BeleagueredAssistant, and CloudcuckoolandersMinder for her lady and spiritual [[IceCreamKoan sensei]], Yuyuko Saigyouji. Youmu is a playable character, which means that she regularly squares off against threats to Gensokyo, which usually includes RealityWarping PhysicalGod or [[TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed other individuals of equivalent power]]. And yet, the other characters treat her like she's an ignorant child and a mere apparatchik of Yuyuko.

* Webcomic example: Rudasor in ''[[http://www.drunkduck.com/Elijah_and_Azuu/ Elijah and Azuu]]''. "Even from myself I get no respect."
* She isn't one anymore, but in her original few appearances, Zoe from ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' had shades of this. In particular, in her first appearance, she was locked out of her car, trampled twice by a mob of people, and then beaten up twice by [[KillerRabbit Bun-Bun.]] While is was never as pronounced as her first appearance, nor is it still in effect, but random unfortunate stuff (such as failing her midterms due to changes to history that she had a hand in being on the test) happening to Zoe was a bit of a running gag for a few years after the strip started. Eventually, she got past it, but she's still a WeirdnessMagnet, so it's not all gone.
* White Mage from ''WebComic/EightBitTheater''. She sometimes appears to be the only person in the world with both a fully developed moral compass and an IQ above room temperature.

[[folder: Web Original ]]
* Church from ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''. He even gets repeatedly killed by his own teammates.
* In WebVideo/ImAMarvelAndImADC, Franchise/{{Superman}} is a mild example of the trope, though he somewhat grew out of it as the series went on. He is one of the most [[NiceGuy mild-mannered]] and [[WideEyedIdealist idealistic members of the cast]], but is looked down upon by most of his fellow superheroes (particularly Franchise/{{Batman}} and ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}) because his series isn't nearly as successful as it once was, and many people see him as an outdated character with no relevance to the 21st century.
* Severus Snape is portrayed as one in ''WebVideo/PotterPuppetPals''.
* Strong Sad in ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' is a perpetual ButtMonkey and never taken seriously despite the fact that he has more common sense than all of the other characters besides [[TheUnintelligible The Cheat and Pom Pom]].


[[folder: Western Animation ]]
* Oscar and (sometimes) Penny from ''WesternAnimation/TheProudFamily''.
* Cat in ''WesternAnimation/{{Catdog}}''. While Cat is intelligent and classy, admittingly his brother Dog is more moral and jovial.
* Edd from ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' usually. However, sometimes his nebbish attitude is impeding, such as when it led to conflict between him and Ed.
* Stan and Kyle from ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', and [[FromBadToWorse it gets worse]] in later seasons. When Stan and Kyle trying to give good advice and reasons they would get that treatment from not just Cartman and Randy , but sometimes, '''''[[EtTuBrute EVERYONE ELSE]]'''''.
** In a two-parter episode, Craig pointed it's because the two, along with Cartman and Kenny, end up going on strange and useless adventures, saying he along with most of the town blame them for the shannigans.
* Danny Fenton (aka ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''), although he isn't the smartest in the trio consisting of himself, [[PerkyGoth Sam]], and [[BlackAndNerdy Tucker]]. And then came ''Reign Storm'', where from there, Danny steadily loses that status.
** Tucker is a much more proper example. In one episode, a ghost frames him for the bad things happening to other people. However, once [[spoiler: Tucker became the mayor of Amity Park in the SeriesFinale]], it's safe to say he got a good bit of respect.
* Kitty Katswell from ''WesternAnimation/TUFFPuppy''. She's pretty much the only competent agent yet her accomplishments are usually glossed over by the agency in favor of celebrating Dudley.
* Frylock of ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' usually manages to avoid being injured by his roommates' stupidity, but he usually receives little to no gratitude for cleaning up their messes.
* Dexter of ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory''.
* Jerry and Mary from ''WesternAnimation/CodeMonkeys''. Jerry's chops are busted either through his association with his best friend Dave or pointing out a critical flaw in his plans, and Mary gets the brunt of Mr. Larrity's bad attitude because he's unapologetically sexist.
** Mary sometimes has it coming thanks to her StrawFeminist role (even when Larrity and the others aren't being blatantly sexist).
* Henry from ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'', though sometimes he gets respect from June, who apparently, has a crush on him.
** This also works for Meltman of ''Action League Now!''.
* Squidward Tentacles from ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' is either this or a straight {{Jerkass}} ButtMonkey, DependingOnTheWriter (albeit more often the latter than the former since TheMovie).
** It's less he varies between the two as he's always both.
* Dib from ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim''.
* Jabberjaw the shark. His catchphrase is "No Reshpect"
* Shifty Dingo from ''WesternAnimation/BlinkyBill'' ESPECIALLY in season 2. Marcia treats him like a piece of trash and he's one of the nicest characters on the show.
* Violently deconstructed in a ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' sketch where [[ColdSniper a new sniper]] joins the Franchise/GiJoe team, only to be given an EmbarrassingNickname, repeatedly humiliated, and left behind like he's TheLoad. [[MistreatmentInducedBetrayal This drives him]] [[FaceHeelTurn to join Cobra]], (amazingly enough Cobra Commander also gives him an embarrassing nickname, but by this point the sniper had StoppedCaring and [[GivingUpOnLogic Given Up On Logic]]) and he gets his [[WhosLaughingNow Who's Laughing Now moment]] by killing ''every single Joe''... except Duke, who gets some CruelMercy when he pleads for death too.
* PJ from ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop''. He's TheDragAlong. Nobody ever listens to him when he tries to convince them to think through consequences or to prepare (such as [[ReadTheFreakingManual reading the manual]]) or when he tries to tell them something has gone wrong, and he's usually right. He is also routinely treated badly by other characters (though the universe itself seems to like him fine) and multiple episodes have made him the butt of a ShaggyDogStory... which wouldn't have happened if people had just listened to him in the first place.
* Jackson Jeckyll from ''Franchise/MonsterHigh''. He's a timid, geeky, genuinely good guy, but he's always treated as the resident ButtMonkey by every other student (aside from Frankie Stein) [[FantasticRacism just for being the only human (half-human, actually) in a school of monsters]]. He gets this treatment both by bullies and by students [[WhatTheHellHero who usually should be nicer characters]]. Even his other self, Holt Hyde, makes fun of him! This mistreatment issue is often represented, webisodes or movies, as [[DudeNotFunny a mere]] RunningGag. The only time the issue is taken seriously (sort of, [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot they give it up pretty quickly]]) is in the movie ''Ghouls Rule'', where Jackson is so exasperated that he prefers to stay in the normie school of New Salem (attended by those who vandalized the M.H.) rather than coming back among the monsters. The worst part of all this is that [[BrokenAesop it goes against the moral of tolerance which leads the franchise]].
* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' has Dipper Pines. Despite being ([[DependingOnTheWriter usually]]) one of the most down-to-earth characters with some serious insecurities and self-worth issues, he's the butt of nearly every joke from family, friends, and enemies, most of which take direct hits at those insecurities (though his family usually does it [[InnocentlyInsensitive without meaning to]]). Dipper's an especially jarring example because his place as the NoRespectGuy is juxtaposed with his [[BreakoutCharacter twin sister]] Mabel, who's super confident, rarely criticized, and openly loved by everyone, and while her mistakes in the show often come without overly serious consequences, his desperate efforts to prove he's worth being listened to usually all end in horrifying disaster. Seems to be moving towards a [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]] as the series goes on, as the lack of respect he gets for all his efforts causes him to have serious trust issues with his family.
* Meg from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. Then again, without her acting as the NoRespectGuy, her family would quickly tear each other apart if the episode "Seahorse Seashell Party" is anything to go by. In fact, in that episode she ''chooses'' to maintain the status of the NoRespectGuy in order to keep them happy.
