It's not fun being this character. Art By LordODarkness84

A butt-monkey (aka "Megward the Wizard", a term coined by TheMysteriousMrEnter; "punching bag", "torture victim", "outcast", "chew toy", or "laughing stock") is a character who is always the butt of a demeaning joke, "put them through hell" plotline, and/or the only character who endures all the slapstick inflicted onto them. For whatever reason, butt-monkeys seem to walk through life with a permanent "Kick Me" sign attached to their backs, invisible to them, but all too visible to the rest of the world. They are the polar opposite of karma houdinis. But sometimes getting bullied and abused can also lead to a trope.

Pretty much nothing ever goes right for this character, and if something bad happens, chances are it happens to them, or somebody else (as a twist shock), to add another schlemiel/schlimazel to the mix.

To basically sum up this trope, it's a character who goes through hell, physically or mentally, or both.

Keep in mind that some of them became popular because of this (e.g. Butters from South Park).

Notable "Butt Monkeys"

  • AP (Atomic Puppet)
  • Abby (Chicken Little; albeit not as much as Chicken Little himself)
  • Abby Cadabby (Sesame Street)

  • Adrien Agreste/Cat Noir (Miraculous Ladybug; he does a suffocating modeling job to make his cold-hearted excuse of a dad happy but leaves no time for him to hang out with his friends, and crushes on Ladybug whom he thinks is better than he is and rebuffs his romantic gestures.)
  • Agent Stone (Sonic the Hedgehog The Movie)
  • Ai (NeoGeo Battle Coliseum)
  • Aisha/Layla (Winx Club; Reasons why she qualifies as this is because she at first had difficulty fitting into the Winx Club because of her lonely childhood, got temporarily blinded by Valtor, lost her first true love, had a family (including her cousin) that were turned into terrifying monsters by Tritannus.)

Hugh also ends up in the Porkbelly Nut Fields, only to get attacked by squirrels. In the sister episode, most of the things the entire family did for Hugh on Fathers Day caused him to get injured in many ways, such as inviting an old friend of his, only to reveal that his old friend became his rival because Hugh stole his girlfriend (who could've been the one currently known as Lila, Johnny's mom) and have him assaulted as well as listening to loud music, leading him to end up in the hospital injured. In "Johnny Irresistable", there is a scene where Hugh got trampled by a bunch of people who wanted Johnny thanks to his irresisableness from his sister's invention. And finallyI n "JohnnyTube" when Johnny attempts to upload a video on the internet of a badger trying to attack him, the badger instead decides to attack Hugh when Hugh walks out of the house to scold Johnny to take out the trash resulting in the latter like in "Johnny's Daddy Day" getting severely mauled and injured by the badger to the point where he also once again has to go to the hospital and is later on seen in the episode on the way to the hospital in a hospital truck due to his injuries.)

The Overall Reason For Why This Trope Sucks

  1. Basically, this trope serves as tiresome character development, where characters you love or root for while suffering through all kinds of the pain they don't deserve when karma houdinis always get off scot-free from what they actually deserve more than these scapegoats do.
