* One of the many [[JumpTheShark shark jumps]] of ''ComicStrip/ForBetterOrForWorse'': when Elizabeth is almost raped by her co-worker, Howard Bunt. And Anthony saves her. And it rekindles their relationship barely minutes after the assault [[GoodAdulteryBadAdultery while Anthony is still married to someone else]]. And instead of taking her to report the crime, he drives her to a park to whine about his miserable marriage and beg her to wait for him. Not only a JumpTheShark, but a WhatTheHellHero (as the artist at least thought of Anthony as a hero, no matter what many, many fans thought he was after that.)

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfiction ''Fanfic/TheLunarGuardsman'', a griffin that has been sent to assault Rarity makes it plain he intends to go one step further, and there is no one to stop him. Until Raegdan enters the alley with full armor, war hammer, and a bandolier full of grenades. The griffin's death is not an easy one to say the least.

* There was an attempted rape scene in, of all movies, ''Film/{{Beethoven}}'s 2nd''. Yes, a PG-rated family movie. Made even worse by the fact that both characters (the rapist and the victim) were underage. The victim is saved in the nick of time by Beethoven. This scene was heavily criticized by many critics as seeming out of place in an otherwise innocuous comedy.
* ''Film/BioDome'': Bud and Doyle sneak into the rooms of the two attractive female scientists and climb into bed with them. They are even shown reaching their hands down to the women's crotches. They're stopped when the women wake up and throw them out. [[DudeNotFunny This is all played as a joke]].

She's finally overcome by Ramsay in "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken" on her wedding night, and then he rapes her for many nights after.
