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).

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.

The Overall Reason For Why This Trope Sucks

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.
