** Averted in "Homer of Seville", where Homer becomes a popular opera singer, and has to fight off hoards of loving fans. Julia, a woman who rescues Homer from a mob of them, becomes his manager in an attempt to seduce him. She goes so far as to ''strip herself naked'' in front him. Homer, however, is disturbed by all this, and fires Julia. When Julia makes a threat on Homer's life, Chief Wiggum puts up a lot of security to protect him.

* Janet Barch from ''{{Daria}}'' is the pure, [[KickChick unadulterated]], research-grade form of this trope. The show portrays her [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness as being violently unhinged in early episodes]], which is where most of the actual abuse is confined to. Later episodes portray her as something of a DefrostingIceQueen as she begins a [[PitbullDatesPuppy relationship]] with [[HippieTeacher Mr. O'Neill]], which is portrayed as being weird but not necessarily dysfunctional. ("The F Word" does seem to imply some ''consensual'' "abuse" in their sex life, though.)

* An early episode of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' revolves around Stan being beaten and everyone being sympathetic toward him over it...until they find out that the one beating him up is his sister. Then they mock him and call him a pussy. This is despite the fact that Stan's sister is older and bigger than he is, and is also a violent sociopath.

Although they ''were'' still sympathetic when asking if his mother was the one hitting him, so this double standard apparently has a limited age range.

* ''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.

* Averted in StarWarsTheCloneWars. The Nightsisters' cruel abuse of the Nightbrothers, to the point of brainwashing and forcing one to ''murder his own brother'' is not portrayed as ok. Savage turns on Ventress rapidly for her abuse and tries to strangle her, and the whole scheme ends in [[spoiler: total failure and a subsequent vicious massacre of the Nightsisters by General Grievous]].

* Occurred on ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'', but ten times ''worse'' during ''[[SeasonalRot Total Drama Action]]'' as Courtney ascended to VillainSue status. 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.

* 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.
