It's not fun being this character.

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 the demeaning joke, "put them through hell" plotline, and/or the only character to endure all the slapstick. 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.

Almost nothing ever goes right for this character, and if something bad is going to happen to someone, chances are it's going to happen to them, or somebody else (as a twist shock).

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