** During her first evening in the comic, she accidentally gives two other characters a PantyShot, stumbles on a collection of Amber's porn work, finds two of Amber's sex toys just lying around, and then ends up hiding in a wardrobe, watching and then listening while two gay men have sex (which she doesn't enjoy).

** During In her first evening in the comic, appearance, she accidentally gives two other characters a PantyShot, [[PantyShot panty-flashes]] gay couple Dillon and Jerzy; later, she stumbles on a [[PornStash collection of Amber's porn work, finds porn]] her sister has starred in, is disgusted to find two of Amber's her sister's sex toys just lying around, and then ends up hiding [[spoiler:hiding in a wardrobe, watching and then listening while two gay men Jerzy and Dillon have sex sex]] (which she doesn't enjoy).
''doesn't'' enjoy). Oh, [[WebcomicTime and that was only the first day]].
** The next day she has it pointed out to her that her favourite favorite tutor at university was an exploitative pervert, and her long-standing wardrobe choice is therefore deeply embarrassing.
** The day after that, there's the trip to the swimming pool where she nearly drowns and then experiences what feels to her like a minor HumiliationConga. It At which point, [[http://www.stickydillybuns.com/strips-sdb/i_got_distracted she notices again]] just goes on how life is treating her.
** She gets a little more hardened as the story continues, of necessity, but the emotional traumas don't stop. She tells Dillon that hanging around with him and Amber [[http://www.stickydillybuns.com/strips-sdb/you_will_always_be_my_favorite_girl "is like tuning my TV to the 'Uncomfortable Realizations Channel,' 24-7".]]
** Her boyfriend Andy's apparent suggestion that they have sex also causes her trauma. However, she gets over that with help
from there...her new friends. [[CharacterDevelopment She's becoming less vulnerable]], and hence less of a butt monkey. Actually, she clearly decides that she quite likes the idea of sex ó but Andy seems to be too dense to take the hint, so Ruby continues to suffer.


* In ''Webcomic/HolyBibble'' Yahweh's literal existence is a joke as he's created just to get Satan laid. No mortal wants to follow him, other gods don't take him seriously and will even steal what little followers he acquires. Even just the idea of being friendly toward Yahweh is laughable.

* Tenka of Webcomic/SupernaturalInvestigationDepartment is this. Wherever he goes he's either teased, having his (apparently, very expensive) clothes ruined, or being hit in the face. The main exception to this is when he's in combat at which point he pretty much becomes a (metaphorical) god.

* ''Webcomic/ScaryGoRound'' tends to be ... whimsical ... with its characters, but they mostly have their ups as well as downs. But then, in 2017, the "Hard Yards" storyline introduced a massive {{Retcon}} which revealed that the very young Scout Jones has achieved victimhood on a cosmic scale, albeit largely through her own folly . The very young Scout sees her parents' marriage break up. Then, [[spoiler:as she grows up, she apparently acquires a series of half-sisters who she can't stand.]] Then, probably because she's [[spoiler:[[YouCantFightFate trying to change the past]] and actually creating a StableTimeLoop, the time travelling adult Scout sees all her plans defeated by a series of weird accidents and coincidences, and realizes that she's ''caused'' at least two things she set out to prevent -- her father leaving her mother, and then him proposing to Shelley. In a last throw of the dice, she tries to kill Shelley... And, well, anyone whose [[http://www.scarygoround.com/?date=20171218 plan is foiled by ''Desmond Fishman'',]] even accidentally, is really having a bad life]].
