** Bulbasaur's introduction episode averts this: Brock punches Misty in the head twice when she teases him about a girl he has a crush on and it's played for comedy. 4Kids Entertainment, notorious for otherwise removing any indication of violence from their anime dubs, even leaves this scene intact in English!

** Bulbasaur's introduction episode averts subverts and inverts this: Brock punches Misty in the head twice when she teases him about a girl he has a crush on and it's played for comedy. 4Kids Entertainment, notorious for otherwise removing any indication of violence from their anime dubs, even leaves this scene intact in English!



** Surprisingly averted in Yusuke's case. Although there are a couple times where Botan smacks him annoyance, there are also a couple times where he does the same to her (when she nearly and almost immediately blabs about her being Death for one), all PlayedForLaughs.

He also delivered an ArmorPiercingSlap to Keiko near the end of the Dark Tournament arc, and while not portrayed for comedy like when he's smacked Botan, and it was to [[GetAholdOfYourselfMan snap her out]] of a HeroicBSOD, and he wasn't portrayed in any negative light.

** Also seen in the anime where much of the filler arcs contain Sakura knocking around Naruto for no clearly defined reason for comedic purposes. This is part of what lead to her vocal {{Hatedom}} within the fanbase, though she's not as bad in the manga.

* ''Anime/RuneSoldierLouie'' subverts this in episode 12, when Louie fights [[AmazonianBeauty Jeanie]] back, after she decks him for coming back for her after she told him to leave. Jeanie took it personally, because it reminded her of the time when [[spoiler: her former comrade, Hector, [[HeroicSacrifice sacrificed himself by staying behind]] so she wouldn't have to]]. At the time, she thought he'd done it because [[spoiler: she was a woman]] and made the same assumption about Louie. She finds she was wrong on both counts, after Farbe sets the record straight by telling her the truth about why [[spoiler: Hector]] had done it (seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eh5Ex0SOf0E from 13:23-16:57).]]

* ''LightNovel/KyoKaraMaoh'' It's apparently perfectly 0k for girls to hit ''the king himself'' and then remark that 'men need training' (with the implication being that they are [[UnfortunateImplications there to serve women]]). Apparently a certain technically minded woman thinks it is 'enlightened' to jump in right after Yurri saves the day and slap the crap out of him. What? What the hell did he do wrong?

* Generally played straight in ''Manga/OnePiece'' as Nami seems to have free reign to beat up her male friends whenever they annoy her (even mildly), but also occasionally subverted. [[FemmeFatale Kalifa]] taking advantage of [[ChivalrousPervert Sanji's]] WouldntHitAGirl tendencies in battle via kicking him the [[GroinAttack groin]] and brutally beating him is painted as being dishonorable on her part. Also, though he never hits Nami back (likely since she only ever hits him in "comical" situations), [[TheHero Luffy]] was depicted as justified after punching Vivi (who's also a close friend) in the face when she suddenly [[ArmorPiercingSlap slapped him]] ''hard'' during what was otherwise a civil argument.

** Major Alex Armstrong suffers major abuse at the hands of his sister, the badass General Olivier Armstrong. She sees him as weak, worthless, and a disgrace to their family name, and either verbally abuses him or beats the crap out of him every time they see each other. There is an air of professionalism to this, as they're both members of the military and Olivier is her brother's superior, but her bullying of him is far meaner than anyone under her command (which says a lot). We later find out that there's more to it: [[spoiler: The reason she views Alex as a failure is because he succumbed to post traumatic stress during the Ishvalan massacre and lost his will to fight.]]

More specifically, it was because he "ran away" rather than try to do something about it about the injustice. He brings this up when he and Olivier fight Sloth and he proclaims he won't run away again. ]]

* Averted in ''Manga/BlackLagoon''. [[DarkActionGirl Revy]] bullies, berates, threatens and in several cases almost ''shoots'' [[NonActionGuy Rock]] early on, and it's never presented as funny or OK. Rock eventually calls her out on it and she ends up stopping, barring some later cases of AngerBornOfWorry.
