** Also averted when it shows Superboy equally mad at Miss Martian for [[MindRape Mind Raping]] villains as he is at the enemy telepath doing the same. Possibly worse since she is a good guy.

** Mai and Zuko. Mai never listens to Zuko when he opens up to her, puts him down, calls him names, and rejects him constantly. He tries to make her happy and please her due to his own abuse. She throws things at him, belittles him, and mocks his abuse. She threatens him at the end of the series. [[spoler:In the comics, she helps her father hide his attempts to murder Zuko and his famil,y lies to Zuko when he asks if her father is involved in the assassination attempts, and when later caught, she gaslights Zuko into apologizing]]. If the genders were reversed, this would be pretty disturbing.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' Francine frequently vents unstable violent tendencies on Stan, she once beat him mercilessly for forgetting their wedding anniversary, and once threatened to shoot his kneecaps off for another deception (which he only avoided by having her gun down his double by mistake). On both occasions they kiss and make up by the end. Granted however Stan ''is'' a JerkAss whose belittling treatment of Francine is also usually PlayedForLaughs (albeit in a verbal manner, the one time Stan was falsely implied to have beaten Francine, and at a much less brutal scale than the genuine occasions vise versa has happened, he was labelled a monster and jailed). There is also more than one episode where the couple have all-out bloody fights with both sides giving and getting, and at least one where he's implied to have been torturing her off camera. He also accidentally threw a javelin at her, although he was trying to hit a bear (ItMakesSenseInContext). Luckily, she's still fine... then Stan accidentally shoots her, which [[{{Crossover}} Peter]] laughs at.
* Slightly subverted in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', when Master Pakku refuses to teach her waterbending, Katara demands to duel him. When he refuses, she assaults him. Master Pakku's misogyny is called out, but Katara's assumption that being a young girl entitles her to free hits on an older man is VERY swiftly disabused:

* A subtle example in ''TaleSpin'', though not used to excessively violent measures, the show took pleasure showing Rebecca kicking around Baloo, [[HugeGuyTinyGirl her comparatively large, hulking male employee]], for comical purposes. Though Baloo was at least sometimes savvy enough to get slapstick revenge via other methods (eg. setting a rambunctious boar on her), he never directly attacked her himself in the same manner as vice versa.

** It's also shown in another episode that the "Yes Dear 9000" can be modified to work on girls. Which is then used to full effect on [[LaserGuidedKarma Lizzie]] by her own aborrant admirer, and is portrayed with the exact same amount of horror as it was with Nigel

* In ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'', the Eds are commonly beaten up by Ed's sister Sarah, plus all the times they've been possibly [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale raped by the Kankers]], who are the walking definitions of Do Not Want. Not only are the Kankers beasts, but the cul-de-sac is ''scared'' of them. So while their [[AmusingInjuries treatment]] of the Eds and anyone who annoys them is usually played for laughs, there are times that it ''is'' wrong and quite likely illegal, but those moments are never actually on screen and only inferred or alluded to. It's to the point that when they drag [[spoiler:Eddy's brother]] away for 'mouth to mouth', it's viewed as his ''comeuppance''. Granted, he [[spoiler: a complete jerk who abuses Eddy,]] but ''still''...

** In one episode, the Eds actually [[PayEvilUntoEvil turn their harassment against them]] in an effort to discourage them from doing it again. It starts to work and is both PlayedForLaughs and treated as justified, considering what the Kankers typically do to them. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, the Kankers realise their plan (thanks to Eddy) and turn it against them again]]

* 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's too young for him. Not only is the violence so exaggerated and cartoonish that it becomes impossible to get offended by, but more often than not, Johnny completely deserves it.
