Add Twilight Sparkle to that as well. Along with Rainbow Dash. Somehow I think Jerkass Woobies
are more effective.
Meg, along with Brian are conditional examples. Often they get the most unfair amount of abuse in the show, but every now and then they do something equally vindictive and irredeemable to remind us that were the circumstances any different, they would be as cruel as the rest of the family.
Frizz and Nug of The Dreamstone
, they're villains but over the top pitiful ones who, much in the vien of the Double D example, are dragged kicking and screaming into every mission by their eviler peers, where they suffer enormous abuse and are usually mercilessly punished as a group by the heroes. Even the odd time they do something competent the manner it is brought down comes off as incredibly contrived and cruel, and unlike most Harmless Villains
they are rarely ever Thrown A Bone. Sgt Blob occasionally applies as well, he's more of a willing Jerk Ass
, but still more loyal than evil, and shares a near equal amount of abuse every episode.
Butters of South Park
. His entire family is abusive, most of his "friends" bully or are completely apathetic towards him and he's one of the very few characters who isn't a cynical Jerk Ass
. Stan also applies in later episodes.
Cat of CatDog
. He can be a Jerk Ass
, but 90% of his abuse stems completely from Dog's stupidity or the cruelty of the Crapsack World
around him. Squidward of Spongebob Squarepants
to a lesser extent applies under similar stipulations.
