* Practically a RunningGag in ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' where the titular character is beaten up all the time by every girl he tries to woo in over the top ways. Pretty much the only females that did not beat the crap out of him were his own mother and little Suzy, who is the only girl in the show that likes him (too bad she is a little child). The violence is so exaggerated and cartoonish that it is arguably less offensive than the majority of the works that employ this trope.

* ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''
** Elmyra Duff is a zig-zagged example. She's obsessed with cuddling every [[CutenessProximity cute thing she sees]], regardless of gender, [[AndCallHisGeorge into oblivion]], but because she doesn't realize what she's doing is wrong, it's not exactly abuse, nor would it be any worse if she were male (especially considering her Looney Tunes counterpart is Elmer Fudd, who's less agressive, but no more threatening).
** Just about every female character, both regular and non, have taken shots at Plucky.
** Babs smacks Buster around every once in a while.

* ''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 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.

** If it's a SethMacFarlane show, its going to have this. ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' is also never above using violence from either sex against the other as comedic fodder, finding dark humor in it.

* Zig-Zagged in ''HeyArnold''. Helga regularly harasses characters in the series, especially Arnold and Brainy (who [[RunningGag has a tendency to appear behind her and get punched after he breathes down her neck]]). Averted when a psychiatrist ''does'' visit PS 118, spots her behaviour, and immediately wishes to assess it. By the end of the episode, when Helga asks if she can still punch Brainy, she's told, "No, that's the reason why you're here". Granted, it's not a punishment, but she ''did'' get repercussions for her bully tendencies. Plus her harassment is showing the audience that she has a problem, and played for drama more than it is for laughs.

* ''HomeMovies'': Brendon is trying to stop an older kid from beating him up, and gets him to turn placid and mellowed out. Melissa, who was harboring a crush on the guy, angrily beats up Brendon for changing him.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': A hugely popular example is Raven and Beast Boy. Raven constantly smacks, slaps, and punches Beast Boy for making jokes or being inappropriate. Not only do fans accept this without question, but they think it's adorable and exaggerate it in fanworks.



* Happens again in ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaPresentsTheRidonculousRace'' where Josee would sometimes be physically abusive to Jacques not to mention constantly verbally abusive. [[spoiler: It comes back to bite her in a big way later when he turns on her at a crucial moment and tells her he wants to break up their partnership.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'', Rocko's encounters with Gladys the Hippo Lady almost always involve this.
** Also, the ShowWithinAShow, ''Meet the Fatheads'' often features Mrs. Fathead bashing her HenpeckedHusband with a parking meter. (Though he sometimes hits her with parking meters, too.) The creator of the "series," Ralph Bighead, says that the characters were made as a TakeThat against his parents, who act like milder versions of the Fatheads. WordOfGod says that the only one that Ed Bighead is afraid of is his wife, Bev.
