Added DiffLines:

* Jason Todd from ''Series/{{Titans}}''. Season 2 has been quite unforgiving with Jason. He gets lied to, tossed aside, the adult Titans (except for Dick and Kory) mostly dislike him for no real reason, and as if all this was not enough, he gets kidnapped, tortured and almost dies at Deathstroke's hands, leaving Jason with a bad case of PTSD. Except for Rose and Dick, nobody shows any real mercy for his condition. Granted, this trope gets darkly deconstructed at the end of the episode 2x07. After getting unfairly accused of things that have nothing to do with him and having Rachel and the former Titans just taking their anger on him, Jason decides to throw himself from the roof, genuinely believing he is the cause to everybody's problems.


* Every ''Series/{{Jackass}}'' cast member is this to some extent, but the award for being The Most Chewed has to be "Danger" Ehren [=McGehey=]. (Special Mention must be given to cameramen Rick Kosick and Lance Bangs, who have never had a moment of screen time where they weren't suffering some kind of indignity.)

Added DiffLines:

** Hurley was actually presented as someone who had bad luck, but he doesn't take near as much damage as characters like Locke.

Added DiffLines:

* Francis from ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'', especially in earlier seasons.


-->'''Hilary:''' I am usually such a klutz, you know. I am always getting stuff dumped on me like guacamole or pies, but with this car I managed to stay perfectly clean! Looks like my luck is changing. Oh, the dipsticks a little bit out...

Added DiffLines:

* In keeping with his (relatively) HotBlooded nature, ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'''s Mike Nelson far more often finds himself suffering AmusingInjuries than his predecessor, Joel. He's also managed to become the TropeNamer for MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds, a situation which inspires the bots to cause him no end of grief. As part of the show's GreekChorus, however, he has the chance to give a bit back, unusually for this trope.


* Ted from ''Series/{{Scrubs}}''. Usually by Dr Kelso, but frequently by just about everyone else. To the extend that he constantly thinks about either killing Kelso or himself, and almost succeeds in the latter in one episode. It's played for tragic comedy, mostly. More comedy than tragic, though; on the one occasion he managed to jump, an enterprising custodial staff's scam was exposed by the fact that it saved Ted's life. And then the Janitor got mad at Ted for ruining his cushy gig.

** It happened to Pauly [[spoiler: many times as well (unlike DJBJ), sometimes Habib and even Bobo has his moments]]


* Karen Ball from ''GreenWing'' gets her hair stuck in a copy machine, is ostracized after she gets [[Literature/HarryPotter Slytherin]] in an online "sorting hat," and is not noticed, for days, to have fallen out of an open window. However, once she falls out the window, she returns in the series-closing special as a much more aggressive person.
