* 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 to mention the implication that Lynn Johnston was playing this trope as RapeAsRedemption. Not only a JumpTheShark, but a WhatTheHellHero (as Johnston at least thought of Anthony as a hero, no matter what many, many fans thought he was after that.)

** Later, Grieves also attempts to force himself on [[spoiler: Evelyn herself]] but she killed him instead. But this event and what happens immediately afterwards left her traumatized enough that just she can't stand to be near Templars, including the good ones like Cullen.

** ''Disney/TheLionKing'' had a example.
