* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'': Subverted AND played straight. While a huge chunk of the comedy is women beating the crap out of men, men are free to return the punches & fights as equals. Kamui has no problem with punching his little sister in the face at full force, because he knows she can take it & will return it. Likewise, Okita enjoys sparring with Kagura & Nobume & doesn't insult them by holding back. Gintoki is extremely harsh on his stalker, Sarutobi, but since she's a masochist, she enjoys it thoroughly. A woman will occasionally get accidentally punched or crushed with a heavy object.

* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex''
** This trope is played for laughs with Touma, who almost always get a punch to the face when some girl who knows him get pissed.
** Index is known for biting Touma.
** Then there is Mikoto, who could probably take on an army by herself and uses every single bit of that power on him. Was it not for his absurd reflexes and his PowerNullifier ability he would have been fried alive in more than one occasion, and they both seem to know it. She ''was'' shown to be horrified the one time she actually hit him when [[spoiler:he was trying to stop her from getting herself killed by Accelerator]].



* Louise in ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' can get frighteningly violent towards Saito and he's the only one that has a problem with it. Many fans found it horrifying even without the gender-flipping. Many [[AbandonShipping bailed]] on the Louise/Saito pairing after one incident has her beating on him with a whip until he passed out bloody and bruised.



* Inverted with two minor characters from ''Manga/FutariEcchi''. First it looks like it will be PlayedForDrama that the shy and timid woman is beaten by her jerkass boyfriend, but after it's revealed that he punches her, when she injures him through her clumsiness (tripping and pouring scalding hot coffee on him, running him over with her bike, etc.) it's PlayedForLaughs.



%%* ''Anime/HellGirl'' subverts this. There are abusive men in multiple episodes, but one of the first season's episodes has a woman getting sent to Hell for using her boyfriend as an open wallet and then abandoning him when his money ran out. One episode of ''Mitsuganae'' has an abusive mother whose husband left her over the abuse, though she doesn't get sent to Hell. The guy who does get sent to Hell is implied to also have issues with his mother (albeit different ones), and wanted the VictimOfTheWeek (the woman's son) to suffer as he did. The episode ends in a way that suggests that the son is going to be making his mother's life a lot harder from there on.

* Being a GenreDeconstruction of the FightingSeries PlayedForLaughs, ''Manga/MutekiKanbanMusume'' has males Kankuro and Akihiko get routinely beaten by females Miki and Megumi. Akihiko, as an adult, WouldntHitAGirl, but Kankuro as an AdultChild definitely WouldHitAGirl… if only he could, but he CantCatchUp with Miki. All of them are presented as {{Adult Child}}ren that only an idiot would try to imitate.



* Kouki gets beat up by his sister Ruri in episode 3 of ''Manga/OneechanGaKita'', simply because she thought he was about to fight Tomoya, the younger brother of her friend Ichika.

Yami in ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' makes her hatred of "ecchi" people clear by hitting or slashing at men or boys (especially Rito) who almost always ''accidentally'' get a punch to the face look under her skirt or touch her breasts - or even just look at her with too much admiration. But when some a girl who knows him get pissed.

Yami states that power on him.

Many [[AbandonShipping bailed]] on the Louise/Saito pairing after one incident has her beating on him with a whip until he passed out bloody and bruised. Somewhat subverted that on at least that occasion, it wasn't really played for laughs. Louise's peers were very disapproving of that, but were unable/unwilling to do anything.

* ''Manga/BlackLagoon'': {{Averted}}. Early on, Revy is verbally and physically abusive to Rock, going so far as to shove a gun in his face. However, this is never portrayed as in any way acceptable, and is used as a clear signal of how utterly broken Revy is. After Rock stops just taking her shit and calls her out on what she's doing she mellows, though she still won't hesitate to smack him around when he does something stupid like mouth off to Balalaika.

** 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!

** 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.
