* In ''VideoGame/EnslavedOdysseyToTheWest'', the (male) BigBad is such because he enslaves people with torturous killswitches, and the (female) protagonist...does the same thing to a total stranger. But it's okay, because she sometimes feels bad about it (though not enough to [[spoiler:free Monkey, despite her earlier promise that she would)]]!

* In ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII'' one sidequest involves finding a singer's husband, who has vanished. It turns out he lost one of the songs he had written for her and was too ashamed to be in her presence after that. Once the player gives the song back to the husband, the man then reveals himself to the singer and begs her forgiveness. The singer response by beating the living hell out of him while he tries to apologize until he's so badly beaten he spends the rest of the game lying on the ground right where she beat him up. Had the genders been reversed this would NOT have been PlayedForLaughs.

* When Morte's AngerBornOfWorry leads her to punch Kyrie in ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'', the rest of the team simply laughs and says he's lucky she didn't pull her {{BFS}} on him, despite the fact that it's been established that Morte is ''not'' someone you want to make angry. As Kyrie is a NiceGuy, he just [[TurnTheOtherCheek lets her get it out of her system]]. Refreshingly, however, she only does this ''once'' in the whole game instead of turning it into a RunningGag; the rest of the time, she's quite gentle with him (though at least half the team likely wishes it did become a running gag instead, as they feel they should GetARoom for their sweet talk).

** In the first class trip, a camping trip in the country, Yosuke proposes going swimming at the river because he wants to see the girls (Chie and Yukiko) in bathing suits. They refuse, but reluctantly agree when he shows he brought suits for everyone. At this point, the Main Character can compliment one, the other, or both girls, and they'll respond favorably to this. When Yosuke compliments them and Kanji suffers a subtle {{nosebleed}}, they push all three guys ''off a cliff'' and into the river below (a river that is only waist-deep.) Lucky for them the SoftWater, and not the riverbed, broke their fall. Unluckily for them, their SadistTeacher was up in the waterfall above, puking on the water, therefore the girls were glad they didn't jump in, and the boys felt like a thousand of showers will never make them clean...

They refuse, but reluctantly agree when he shows he brought suits for everyone.[[CrazyPrepared bought swimsuits in the girls' sizes]] and guilt trips them into putting them on. At this point, the Main Character can compliment one, the other, or both girls, and they'll respond favorably to this. When Yosuke compliments them in a somewhat more backhanded and perverted way (something the main character can agree or disagree with) and Kanji suffers a subtle {{nosebleed}}, they push all three guys ''off a cliff'' and into the river below (a river that is only waist-deep.) Lucky for them the SoftWater, and not the riverbed, broke their fall.

** While Chie beats up Yosuke "only" twice in the video game (she kicks him in the crotch for breaking her "Trial of the Dragon" DVD and throwing a rope to him when he and the Protagonist return from the TV world with their Personas), she does it a lot more in [[Anime/Persona4TheAnimation the anime]], even over the smallest insults.

* This is Franziska von Karma's ''character'' in the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series. She is the prosecutor that whips anyone that irritates her even slightly. This includes lawyers, witnesses, the judge, and the police. The most someone seems to do about it is ask her to stop, to which her reply is another whip to the head.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia2'' has a [[HotSpringsEpisode Hot Spring scene]] that took a leaf from the abovementioned ''Persona'' games, with the girls locking the guys inside Teepo, while they are enjoying the baths, with the guys' location being too hot, cramped and Teepo's liquid causing their towels to disintergrate. In the Japanese version, the girls did this because the men were going to peep on them, making this more a case of [[DistroportionateRetribution simple punishment]]. The localized English version removed this aspect and changed it to the girls doing this for no good reason. It's PlayedForLaughs, too.

** One of the criticisms raised at the Prince Chrom x Female Avatar pairing is rooted in this trope. In one of their supports, in a reversal of the AccidentalPervert trope, she walks in on him bathing... and starts throwing stuff at ''him'' for ''her'' own mistake. This is ''quite'' far from her [[NiceGirl usual attitude]], but Avatar is clearly shown to be in the wrong with her profuse apologizing afterwards.

** It's [[NoodleIncident never shown on screen]], but several supports mention local HandsomeLech Inigo getting assaulted for flirting with various women. Similarly, If CuteMonsterGirl Nah's beau is Inigo, her behavior goes straight into this and she even threatens to transform into a dragon and eat him alive if he cheats on her (or comments on [[OlderThanTheyLook how young she looks]]) in their S support. And for that matter, the entirety of their S support is her creepily strong-arming him into marrying her when he clearly has no interest whatsoever in doing so, and has clearly stated before that he isn't even ''attracted'' to her. Like in the case of Avatar, Nah normally does not act like this ''at all''.

''Unlike'' Avatar, this is completely played for laughs and the only "justification" offered is Inigo's personality and general ButtMonkey status.

*** To be fair, this time it doesn't seem like it was suppose to be funny judging by the guys annoyance after finding out the girls' mistake.
