SpearCounterpart of BastardGirlfriend. Usually a type of RomanticizedAbuse and subtrope to AllGirlsWantBadBoys, with a side order of EvilIsSexy. If the Kichiku character also has status, power, and [[SexySpectacles hot little glasses]], he's a ''kichiku megane'' (see BespectacledBastardBoyfriend). For sort-of Western equivalents, see RomanceGenreHeroes under The Bastard and The Sadist, although those are usually played as villains. Contrast the {{Jerkass}} varieties of RomanticFalseLead and the DisposableFiance, who are superficially similar but guaranteed ''not'' to get the girl, and the DomesticAbuser and UnsexySadist, who have the cruelty minus the fetishization.

* As much as it was shown to be a legitimately (and mutually) abusive relationship, ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''s relationship with Spike had definite elements of this. Spike's frequent [[ShirtlessScene semi-nude scenes]] certainly weren't there to cause disgust in the audience.

** Poor Japan. Not only is he turned into a Bastard Boyfriend in numerous Japan/[insert any other Asian nation here] fanworks (which includes many Japan/China fanworks, pretty much all Japan/either Korea, Hong Kong, and/or Thailand fanworks, and even the few Japan/Taiwan fanworks that don't go the LadyAndKnight or HappilyMarried routes) thanks to his LawfulEvil [[ImperialJapan imperial history]], but he himself becomes the {{w|impification}}eepy [[LoveMartyr victim]]...er, "lucky lover" of a Bastard Boyfriend in numerous America/Japan and England/Japan fanworks. The only pairing exceptions ([[TemptingFate so far]]) are Greece/Japan (whose reputation as the "[[HappilyMarried peaceful, content]], [[KindheartedCatLover cat-loving]] pairing you steer clear of if you love angst" is too strong) and minor pairings like Turkey/Japan and Netherlands/Japan (who don't get that many fanworks in the first place, at least in the English-speaking fandom).

* Sata Kyouya in ''Manga/OokamiShoujoToKuroOuji'' treats Erika as his personal dog on the condition of becoming of his fake girlfriend, even after the two start dating for real he's still a jerk to her (just not as much). By the time the two get married, this aspect of him vanishes completely, but it still doesn't excuse him.

* Majima Tarou, a bonus character for ''[[Franchise/TokimekiMemorial Tokimeki Memorial Girls' Side]]''. Basically everything he does involves being a narcissistic, self-absorbed, emotionally flip-floppy Jerkass who torments the protagonist, demands that she do ridiculous things for her, yells at her when he does, and all-around acts abusive to the poor Love Martyr protag who spends a lot of the time in tears.

* Ultimately averted in ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru''. It looked like Sachiko's arranged fiancè Suguru was heading towards this, but while he tends to be very mean-spirited he nevertheless cares for Sachiko in his own, quiet way, shows gratitude to Yumi for helping his fiancee with her problems, and once even warned Touko of further alienating any prospective friend should she keep up her JerkassFacade. [[spoiler: And he's strongly implied to have feelings for someone else... [[HoYay Yumi's brother Yuuki]].]]

* Deconstructed with Tamura's lover in ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai''. He is a senpai that Tamura fell for in middle school. Due to IncompatibleOrientation they aren't a couple but they do have a sexual relationship. In contrast to her OtokonokoGenre love interests, he does ''not'' believe ItsOkayIfItsYou. He's aloof and abusive towards Tamura. He only uses him for sex as long as he {{crossdresse|r}}s, says homophobic things about him, and shows disgust at what puberty has done to him. By high school he is a scraggly looking hikikomori but still has the same JerkAss personality. [[spoiler:Eventually Tamura becomes fed up with him, calls him out, and leaves him for good.]]

** Tamura himself plays this to Marika (who is a {{trans|sexual}} girl). Though not her boyfriend, Tamura plays the role. He's portrayed as an overly hormonal boy who is tries to coerce her into sex, plays with her emotions, and manipulates her. [[spoiler:Pretty much all of his problems go back to [[RapeAsBackstory sexual abuse]] he received as a child, which explains why he's so overly sexual and troubled.]] In the end Marika [[spoiler:is implied to end up with the much nicer Satoshi]], while Tamura [[spoiler:doesn't end up with anyone. As an adult he's shown to have a lot of one-night stands and generally seems as miserable as ever]].

** Turkey is typically portrayed as this in [[FoeYay Turkey/Greece]] and [[UnequalPairing Turkey/Egypt]] fanworks (although it's much less common for the latter). While some Turkey/Greece works veer into BelligerentSexualTension instead by making Greece into a defiant {{Tsundere}} on equal fighting ground with Turkey, many more Turkey/Greece works make it clear that as hard as Greece tries to fight back, Turkey thoroughly dominates him and is free to abuse and even rape him because he either wants to [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty put Greece in his place]] or [[LovingForce just can't control himself around Greece]], leaving Greece a [[BreakTheCutie broken and embittered man]] who [[StockholmSyndrome nonetheless can't help but]] [[LoveMartyr keep coming back to Turkey]]. Some fics have him go as far as raping Greece [[{{Ephebophile}} as a teen]] or [[{{Shotacon}} a child]], brainwashing Greece into being his slave, or even raping Greece ''explicitly'' [[AttentionWhore because he'd rather have Greece hate him than be indifferent towards him.]]

** America gets this rep in more than one America/England and/or America/Japan badfic, with either England or Japan becoming the LoveMartyr to America's {{Jerkass}} or {{Yandere}} via {{Wimpification}}. Double points if it's an USA/Japan fic set in the American occupation times where America either punishes Japan for his role in UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo by raping him or becomes a dangerous Yandere who threatens to bomb him again. Triple points if it's a "USUK" fic where the real reason for UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution is either England's reaction to teenager!America [[LovingForce overpowering and raping him]], or America setting a spiteful {{plan}} in which he wants his "freedom" as a direct way to hurt and hate England (and often backed up by a France shown as a slutty, selfish EvilMentor [[RonTheDeathEater who leads America on *purely* to spit on]] [[PuritySue "poor" UK]] - way to flanderize the French role in the Revolution).

** MasterOfTheMixedMesaage - he tells Hachi that she's the only woman he's in love with but cheats on her with Reira, whom he knows is unrequitedly in love with him since childhood, asking her if she was alright with being one of his women which she agrees to (even if it's to comfort her until Shin is able to be with her) because Reira is key to his work as well as ChildhoodFriend, most of his time is spent with her, making her think that she has a chance at times.

In the anime, he's toned down to a {{Jerkass}}, and his sexual harassment is elbow-licking.

** From the same series, a Shoujo-Ai/Yuri example is in Yonekuni's mother, Makio Madarame (the resident heroic sociopath of this manga). When they first met, she pushed her love interest, Karen, '''''out of a four story window''''', and the only reason Karen survived was because of her madararui nature (and she still broke her legs!). Makio ''did'' spend the following months taking her everywhere and caring for her (against Karen's wishes), but still...Even after twenty years together, this trope ''continues'' to apply to Makio, as she constantly causes Karen no end of misery from everything from cheating on her to trying to derail Yonekuni or Kunimasa's psychological development, or running her prostitution outfit within the vicinity of their restaurant. These last two coincided at one point where she tried to pimp Kunimasa off to the highest bidder...[[BewareTheNiceOnes and Karen was NOT happy]].

** Considering that [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters this is Love Pistols]], you have quite a few dysfunctional relationships running around, but special mention has to go to Hiromasa and Shima's. Originally, they were sex friends in high school, and split up when Hiromasa's family moved him to a different prefecture, and then wound up working in the same hospital in their mid-twenties, eventually re-starting the sexual relationship they had before. Despite how much he tries to distance himself, Shima is in love with Hiromasa, but believes that if he tried to get any closer to him, he'd lose interest and leave him. In a moment of weakness, he uses a conception device that the Madarui use for same-gender reproduction (his thinking is along the lines of [[SomeoneToRememberHimBy "at least he'd have something of him"]] [[LoveMakesYouDumb when they eventually broke up]]). Consequently, [[MisterSeahorse he gets pregnant]]. Now, ''here's'' the bit where it gets creepy. [[spoiler: It turns out that Hiromasa has actually been in love with Shima for years, and he came back from Kyoto to work in the same hospital as him for the expressed purpose of getting closer to him.]] Okay, that's fine, right? Well, here's the thing...[[spoiler: Hiromasa noticed the fact that Shima seemed to be able to brush their relationship off like it was nothing, and had, for months, without Shima's knowledge, [[{{Yandere}} been using a very powerful conception drug on him in order to get him pregnant so he could tie him to him and stop him from leaving him.]] When Shima finds out that he's pregnant, despite being shocked beyond all belief, he blames himself, and Hiromasa not only ''lets him think that it's all his fault'', but [[IfICantHaveYou threatens to abort the child if it's not his]]. After things have calmed down a bit and Shima's sleeping in his arms, he remarks mildly in an internal monologue how nice it was to have miscalculated the extend of Shima's feelings for him and also how nice it was that ''[[MurderTheHypotenuse he wouldn't have to kill anyone for sleeping with or impregnating him]].'']] Ladies and gentlemen, your Bastard Boyfriend incarnate.
