* Occurred on ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'', but ten times ''worse'' during ''[[SeasonalRot Total Drama Action]]'' as Courtney becomes the main antagonist in the second half of the season. She has kicked her love interest, Duncan, in the crotch numerous times just in order to win competitions, and sometimes just for flirting with her when she was in a bad mood.

* Subverted in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited''. A man who invented a time machine is forced to deal with his verbally abusive wife, which eventually leads to his FaceHeelTurn and an eventual BadFuture. On the other hand, the episode ends with him [[spoiler:being trapped in a time loop reliving the same few minutes with said wife over and over again.]]

* Subverted in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited''. A Unlimited'':
** Subverted in one episode when a
man who invented a time machine is forced to deal with his verbally abusive wife, which eventually leads to his FaceHeelTurn and an eventual BadFuture. On the other hand, the episode ends with him [[spoiler:being trapped in a time loop reliving the same few minutes with said wife over and over again.]]]]
** Averted as a whole with the entire series where battles are concerned. Female characters hitting male characters is depicted with all the gravity and seriousness you would expect when a potentially superpowered professional fighter hits someone else, and conversely the male characters have no qualms whatsoever about [[WouldHitAGirl swinging right back at full strength]].

Added DiffLines:

** In season 3 Korra and Asami laugh as the former levitates Mako with airbending. Granted, it was just a prank, but it could have gotten him seriously injured.
** Season 4 started to wise up and subvert this. While the rift between Opal and Bolin is justifiable, her cold treatment towards him is not shown as being reasonable, though the conflict is still resolved in her favour. And in the last few episodes [[spoiler:Kuvira trying to kill her fiancé, Baatar Jr. in a ShootTheHostage sort of situation]] is clearly extremely traumatic for the latter.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheProudFamily'': Oscar is beaten up, sometimes twice an episode, and usually by his wife or mother. Most of the times it's because he flirts with other women, which is wrong, but if Trudy ever flirts with another man and Oscar says something about it, [[TheUnfairSex he is portrayed as over-reacting.]] One particularly {{Egregious}} example: Trudy makes a joke about leaving Oscar for Creator/DenzelWashington. Everyone laughs. Oscar makes a joke about leaving her for Creator/HalleBerry. Trudy and Penny glare at him before Trudy drops his foot, which was bandaged after an earlier accident.

** Mom beats on her sons, Walt, Larry and Igner regularly. Granted, they are a parody on ''Film/TheThreeStooges'', and really are pretty pathetic, but it's played as a lot more funny than if they had been daughters or Mom was a Dad.

** Played with the [=McKormicks=].

* In the ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}'' episode "The Butterjunk Effect," Amy and Leela become Butterfly Derby athletes by doping up on "Nectar", which is space steroids. Fry and Kif are the victims of their subsequent 'roid rage: Kif mentions being hit with "various chairs", and Fry gets sexually assaulted by both of them while in the throes of their Nectar-induced madness. All played for laughs, (Fry's kind of okay with it, actually), but if the sexes were reversed this whole situation wouldn't be funny ''at all''.

* There's a scene in ''Disney/TheRescuersDownUnder'' that has some domestic abuse played for laughs. A very large wife and a very small husband are eating dinner at a restaurant. The engagement ring Bernard was intending to give to Bianca rolls under their table, and Bernard, getting it, brushes up against the wife's leg. Assuming her husband is trying to play footsie (she never sees Bernard), she rather brutally smacks him, whereupon he cringes away from her in fear.
