* ''Series/StreetJustice'': The husband of Malloy's friend Lisa in "Self Defense" is a particularly manipulative example, controlling where his wife can go and when, blaming her for angering him enough to hit her, and generally isolating her to the point that she's a ShrinkingViolet who flinches at the slightest hint of physical contact. Then there's the father in "Kid Stuff" who, as his adopted son's teacher points out, has a mannerism that frightens the kids in the class, coupled with the fact that the adopted son in question has had bruises corresponding to physical abuse, and also the fact that the dad pushes both his son and the other kids hard when coaching them in basketball and isn't accepting of anything less than perfection. [[spoiler:The latter case is revealed to be a subversion, as while the dad's initially suspected of abusing the boy, he's in fact innocent--it's his wife who's hurting the kid]].

* Averted in ''[[http://original.adult-fanfiction.org/story.php?no=600108215 The Quiet Before the Storm]]''. Asiliyara refuses to travel overseas to Sesslyn, specifically stating that its ''men'' are rapists and murderers. Her mentor rebukes her on the basis that all genders- and all'' races'', even their own- have the potential to be horrible.

* ''[[FanFic/UltimateSleepwalker Ultimate Sleepwalker: The New Dreams]]'' contained a very deliberate subversion of this trope. [[spoiler:In the original comics, Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk and his mother Rebecca were violently abused by Bruce Banner's father Brian. In this AlternateUniverseFic, however, little Bruce is instead molested by his mother Rebecca, who violently attacks Brian with a knife whenever he tries to protect his son. This inversion from the comics was deliberately done to highlight how men can be victims of domestic violence too.]]

* In an episode of ''Series/{{Starsky and Hutch}}'', when the cops discover a case of child abuse, they assume it's the kid's hulking father who's responsible; turns out it's the mother who's to blame.

* ''Series/{{Titus}}'' featured an episode that dealt with Christopher going to the funeral of an ex-girlfriend, being very secretive about his reasons why, deflecting the truth with the claim she was his true love. He eventually reveals he wanted to get some closure on their relationship because SHE was physically and emotionally abusive to him. The DoubleStandard is brought up that Christopher was embarrassed of being beaten up by a girl and his father didn't help much (trying to play off his injuries as a drunken accident to the neighbors). The only reason he stayed with her as long as he did was because she would swing from abuse [[AManIsAlwaysEager to sex in an instant]].

This is based on an actual relationship Chris Titus was in, outlined under Stand-Up Comedy.

* Averted in ''Train Tracks'', Ragyou deals as much abuse as she does if she were male, however, Soichiro is also quick to hit her, too, the which is mostly in self defense. Similarly, in an unrelated but in an otherwise similar fic ''Cellar Secrets'' we have Ragyou playing this role again, however, her abuse is more psychological when it comes to her older two daughters but her secretary and her [[spoiler: youngest daughter]] on the other hand is just brutal, causing the former to commit suicide after she was committed. At the same time, one of the more benevolent figures in the story is male.

* Actually averted in one episode of ''Series/{{Quincy}}''. Though the parent abusing the son ''does'' turn out to be the father in the end, Quincy's team initially thinks it's the mom.

* The book ''Amy & Isabelle'' features an example of domestic abuse where the mother Isabelle - after discovering her daughter Amy has been having an affair with her teacher - attacks her and [[TraumaticHaircut cuts off all her hair]]. The narrative treats Isabelle sympathetically, since the incident harkens back to [[spoiler: when she herself had an affair with an older man and got pregnant with Amy]]. Had it been a father doing this to his daughter, it would have been presented as a MoralEventHorizon. So essentially Isabelle becomes a KarmaHoudini because she's only reacting to a male abuser's actions.



* Under the helm of Marti Noxon, ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' tended to drift in this direction.
