* WesternAnimation/BettyBoop was a victim of this quite often and one of the most known examples is in the cartoon short ''Boop-Oop-A-Doop''. In this cartoon, Betty is a circus performer who is lusted after by the Ringmaster. At night, the Ringmaster accosts her in her tent and threatens to rape her until Koko the Clown comes in to rescue her. A daring plot for a cartoon made in 1932, a supposedly "purer" time. Only "the Old Man of the mountain" may be more explicit that this.

* Not-so-much a brutal example in ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'', by [[CasanovaWannabe Vigoro]] on [[TheLancer Aika]]. It's a T-Rated game, so the dialogue isn't explicit and he doesn't get very far into the act before he's stopped.

* ''Film/SpeciesII'': When Patrick becomes controlled by the alien, he goes around impregnating various women with his alien sperm. Most of these encounters are either consensual or sex-for-pay, but he also drags one of his victims out of a convenience store in the middle of the day to rape her in his parked van. He only stops and lets her go when he realizes that there's a female hybrid out there as well after she links to his mind.

* ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'': [[spoiler: General Medrano's going to do this to some poor hotel waitress before [[ActionGirl Camille]] enters the room and proceeds to kick his ass.]]
** Considering that [[spoiler: in the past the General had also succeeded in raping Camille's sister and mother]], it's poetic justice.

** Similarly, Gibb of ''Film/FreddyVsJason'' presumably ingests some date rape drugs at a rave and falls unconscious, with a glow stick covered sleaze happening upon her a few minutes later. As the guy tries to rape Gibb, who should come along but Jason, who impales the two of them with a broken tractor harrow. Also near the end, when [[spoiler:Lori, trapped in her nightmare by Freddy, while wearing a nightgown, is about to raped by said madman before waking up.]]
** As one reviewer put it: "We learn that Jason [[BerserkButton objects to forced sex even more than he does to the voluntary kind.]] [[EvenEvilHasStandards And good on him for that.]]"

* ''[[Film/TwentyEightDaysLater 28 Days Later]]'': Jim's [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge bloody rampage]] ends with him rescuing his love interest, Selena, from the soldiers who planned to rape her. Arguably leads to an atypical RescueRomance, with ActionGirl Selena falling for Jim - admittedly this had already been set in motion earlier in the movie.
** He was moving so fast and violently, she thought he was infected, and was ready to kill him until he came to a full stop before her. When asked if she would have killed him, she says "In a heartbeat".

* Happens to Edith in an episode of ''Series/AllInTheFamily''. At first, her attacker -- he had posed as a cop, pretending to be searching for a rapist in the neighborhood -- is too smart for Edith's attempts to fight him off, but eventually, she shoves a burning cake in his face and [[GroinAttack knees him in the groin]], causing him to fall onto the porch and forcing him to flee.

*** When Gloria finds out that Edith isn't planning to press charges either in the later episode, she is duly outraged, to the point of bringing her mother to tears by screaming that she's ashamed of her and declaring, "[[IHaveNoSon You're not my mother anymore!]]." This is less [[{{hypocrite}} hypocrisy]] on Gloria's part than overlooked continuity on the part of the writers; still, the failure to CallBack the earlier episode was a missed dramatic opportunity.
*** And Gloria had a cop telling her what her attacker's defense attorney would do if she did press charges. In Edith's case, that guy had already been caught more than once but no one would step forward. Nothing really was stopping her but herself. And Gloria's attempted rape was mentioned more than once in that episode.
*** Or else it is Gloria's way of working through her guilt. Daughters can feel as though they can correct their mistakes by living vicariously through their mothers just as mothers live vicariously through their daughters.
* ''Series/{{Heroes}}'': Claire almost gets raped by the JerkJock of her school, but he ends up killing her before he does anything. ([[GoodThingYouCanHeal She got better]].)
** She gets revenge by ramming his car into a brick wall. While he's in it. [[GoodThingYouCanHeal She gets better]]. He doesn't. And then her dad has the rapist's memory wiped. All of it.

*** It's debatable whether or not he actually wanted to ''rape'' her--he had to touch her to use Lydia's ability, so he kissed her. Creepy, but he didn't seem to be ready to go further than that. [[spoiler:The fact that he got [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome stabbed in the eye with a pencil]] deterred him either way, though.]]

* In The Tribe this happens at least three times. Lex tries to rape Zandra in series one, who later marries him. He also tries to rape Salene in series two. In series one Zandra is also almost raped by Top Hat, but he loses the urge when KC kicks him in the testicles. These are somewhat disturbing in a show that was aimed at tweens.
