** Played with the [=McKormicks=]. While they are implied to both take as much as they dish out, only Mrs. [=McKormicks=] is shown hitting Mr. [=McKormicks=] onscreen (a preview for "Make Love Not Warcraft" showed Mr. [=McKormicks=] about to slug her but cuts off just beforehand, for the final episode this is edited to Mrs. [=McKormicks=] actually shown doing so to him uncut).

* 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''.

* ''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 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.

* 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.

** Mom beats on her sons, Walt, Larry and Igner regularly. Granted, they are a parody on 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.

** 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.
