* In the ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' fic ''battle wounds'', Adrien is horrified when he sees scars on a schoolmate's legs and she stubbornly refuses to tell him what caused them. They're actually from her fights as a costumed superhero.

* Used hilariously in Creator/DanSavage's book ''The Committment'', which chronicles his getting legally married to his husband Terry. During a family vacation with their then-four-year-old son DJ, they stopped at a hotel in [[FlyoverCountry Billings, Montana]], a state not known for being the most queer-friendly. The long travel left poor DJ with a nasty case of "diaper rash" despite being 2 years out of diapers. So, he suddenly started screaming "MY BUTTHOLE HURTS DADDY!! IT HURTS IT HURTS!" He continues to scream as the two men take care of...that, all the while worried that the neighbors would overhear all this and [[PedoHunt send a SWAT team]] after [[AllGaysArePedophiles them]]. Once DJ was properly bathed and calmed down, Dan was relieved that the police weren't called...then thought about it and was vaguely disturbed that nobody did anything ''at all'' despite the fact that a child could have been getting raped for all they knew.

* {{Invoked}} hard in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Sealab2021}}'' episode "Bizarro," in which Captain Murphy reacts as though Bizarro Debbie were brutally torturing Quinn when it is obvious to absolutely everyone else that they're having enthusiastic sex.

* "Series/CalltheMidwife has an episode where a baby keeps getting broken bones all the time, and a doctor suspects that the baby is being abused. However, in the end, it is realized and revealed that the baby is not being abused; rather, he has a medical condition known as osteogenesis imperfecta, causing his bones to be brittle and fragile.

* In ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', Nibiki tries to explain to [[LordErrorProne Kuno]] that in regards to the cute girl he's in love with (Ranma's girl self) and his school rival (Ranma's boy self), "Her body? Her soul? All his." Kuno promptly comes to the conclusion that female Ranma is being held prisoner by a brutish, abusive male Ranma. (Given how Kuno doesn't realize the two are the same after Ranma ''transforms in his arms'', it makes sense that explanation doesn't get through to him.)

* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', [[AxCrazy Bangladesh]] [[ComedicSociopathy DuPree]] has a bit of an obsession with Tarvek, apparently dating from when they were both in Paris and Bang had kidnapped him. It seems to be PlayedForLaughs at the [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20120222#.VvhUw-IrLIU start]] but when you start thinking about what she's actually saying - ''"Hey, do you still have those little '''scars?'''"'' - FridgeHorror starts to set in. It's recently been confirmed that [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20160318#.VvhVyuIrLIU yes, Bang did physically torture him]], and the fact that Gil has now set her to work as his bodyguard whilst he's asleep is more than a little worrying.
--> '''Bang:''' I wanna see if he's still got those beautiful scars!\\
'''Gil:''' I ''told'' you - the chrono spillage healed ''everything''.\\
'''Bang:''' ''Nooo!'' I worked ''hard'' on those!

* An early episode of ''Series/{{Flashpoint}}'', has a cop beating his wife until her sister takes matters into her own and holds up the husband at gunpoint. While investigating the situation, SRU officers quickly discover that the cop's partners and friends on the force knew, or at least strongly suspected, that the cop was beating his wife, but looked the other way out of misguided respect, writing it off as something else.

* In the 2000 remake of the ''Series/TheFugitive'', the already suspicious Inspector Gerard becomes convinced that Richard Kimble is his wife's murderer when witnesses who saw them jogging in the park the day she was killed claim to have seen him grab her and throw her to the ground. They didn't--the HappilyMarried couple was playing and goofing off.

** Ironic, in that in almost all cases, one would be correct to assume abuse in that setting given [[spoiler: (especially as [[BrotherSisterIncest they are siblings]])]].
