* The soap opera ''Series/{{Neighbours}}'' has, among others, Yashvi "[[SarcasmMode hilariously]]" punching Ben in the groin because she was annoyed with him, Steph graphically decking amputee Paul for jilting her mother at the alter, and shouting in her stepson Boyd's face. When Rhys angrily raises his voice to Susan, Vanessa is appalled that he thinks it's alright to "talk to women like that." Dylan and Scott Timmins [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beating the crap]] out of [[NiceGuy Boyd]] for cheating on their sister, and [[DirtyCop Sergeant Steiger]]'s contemptuous dismissal of the case (because "that family's been through enough") is staged as a [[MomentOfAwesome moral victory]], [[DoubleStandard whereas]] Dylan's aim to avenge himself on a violent assailant is solemnly denounced by Sky as "stupid male pride."

** Series 8 has two occasions ("[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E2IntoTheDalek Into the Dalek]]" and "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E4Listen Listen]]") where Clara smacks the Twelfth Doctor upside his head. It's treated as her just knocking some sense into him in both cases, played seriously in "Into the Dalek" and for laughs in "Listen". But those pale in comparison to a crack she makes in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E7KillTheMoon Kill the Moon]]", where in the wake of [[spoiler: his leaving a choice that would determine Earth's future in her and humanity's hands, rather than making a decision for them]], she threatens to hit him so hard he'll have to regenerate. In other words, ''she just threatened to beat him to death''. Imagine if the shoe was on the other foot and the Doctor told Clara that he would smack her so hard that he'd need to find another companion because she'd be indisposed during a rather lengthy stay in hospital. Hooray for our plucky heroine...?

** The Doctor has been slapped across the face by women several times in the revived series. After Jackie slaps the Ninth Doctor (which is understandable since he took her daughter away for her year from the world's perspective), Rose laughs off it off and remarks "you're so gay". Donna also slaps the Tenth Doctor twice in her debut episode when he was invading her personal space and being rather insensitive to her plight.

** Aside from magical influences, it has been stated that Piper has blown up her husband Leo. Phoebe casually remarks "Are you kidding me? How many times has Piper blown up Leo?" and when Paige asks if she means literally Phoebe just brushes it off. Piper actually does try to blow him up out of anger for something he didn't do, but couldn't due to the magic disappearing. While being blown up doesn't kill Leo, he does make it clear that it hurts when Paige uses him as a guinea pig.

* ''Series/{{Cops}}'' tends to highlight domestic abuse cases where the woman is clearly in the wrong but the man is still to blame. One episode had the girlfriend accusing her boyfriend of hitting her. While the boyfriend was bloodied, scratched up, and his shirt was ripped apart, the girlfriend didn't have a mark on her. Even more outrageous was the discovery of drugs in the boyfriend's car ''when we see the girlfriend put the bag in the car on camera behind the cops backs''. Still, it's the boyfriend who's arrested for assault and drug possession, though the girlfriend was clearly the aggressor and had planted evidence deliberately in his car. This is, sadly, all-too-often TruthInTelevision, as statistically authorities are ''far'' more likely to take the woman's side in a domestic disturbance call, regardless of the evidence. [[note]]Police policies often say to consider the height and weight of the parties involved to help determine the "Primary/Predominant Aggressor". In your average heterosexual relationship, the man is bigger.[[/note]]

* ''Series/MrRobot'': In Season 3, Angela starts to psychologically abuse Elliot and use his mental illness against him for Stage 2 and keeps him in the dark. Worst part is, she doesn't even face direct consequences for it Now imagine how the situation would go down if it was a woman with mental illness being manipulated by a man.

* ''{{Series/Riverdale}}'':
** Chapter Three straddles the line. In order to get revenge on the JerkJock and his SlutShaming ways, Betty and Veronica drug him and handcuff him in a hot tub. Betty goes even further and nearly drowns him. It's presented as a dark moment for the character and she's quite ashamed of it, but the physical revenge is still portrayed as justified. Picture Archie and Judgead drugging and handcuffing Cheryl to punish her for her bitchy ways, and imagine how that would go down.
** It's lampshaded in Chapter Twelve after Cheryl slaps Jughead in the face. She's not punished in any way for doing it (presumably out of sympathy that [[spoiler: Jughead's father had just confessed to killing her brother]], but then again it'd be hard to imagine the situation playing out with the genders reversed). On the other hand, Archie reacts with a PapaWolf instinct - immediately pulling her off him (showing visible force in doing so) - and is furious at the principal suggesting Jughead miss school
