* At least half of all ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' and ''Series/GameOfThrones'' fanfics that pair anyone with resident PsychoticManchild Ramsay Snow portray him in this light. Doubles as a ''[[BastardBastard literal]]'' BastardBoyfriend. Part of this is due to AdaptationalAttractiveness, as he's described as ugly in the books, but in the series played by the drop-dead gorgeous Iwan Rheon. The most common victim is his canonical prisoner, torture & StockholmSyndrome victim, and NoYay partner [[spoiler:Theon Greyjoy]]. Other common victims include his wife in the books [[spoiler:Jeyne Poole]], [[CompositeCharacter his wife in the show]] [[spoiler:Sansa Stark]], and his GoodCounterpart [[HeroicBastard Jon Snow]].
** For those who prefer their sadists more aged and refined, Ramsay's father, [[SoftSpokenSadist Roose Bolton]], occasionally gets portrayed the same way. He's most frequently paired with his wife Walda Frey, or with the king he's second-in-command to [[spoiler:([[TheStarscream who he later murders]])]] Robb Stark. And of course, that's not mentioning the fics where [[ParentalIncest Roose is a]] BastardBoyfriend [[ParentalIncest to Ramsay...]]

* In ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'', it's implied that [[PatientChildhoodLoveInterest Osana Najimi]] just ended [[DestructiveRomance a relationship]] with one of these. [[{{Understatement}} He's angry about it]], as [[DisproportionateRetribution he threatens to hurt Senpai (possibly also her) if she won't come back to him]].

The Bastard Boyfriend is sort of the Alpha Male equivalent of a Type A {{Tsundere}}, but with the violent temper replaced by [[TallDarkAndSnarky cutting sarcasm]] and the ''deredere'' side turned down to near-zero. They are, of course, completely immune to CantActPervertedTowardALoveInterest, but they're usually [[EvenEvilHasStandards not]] [[WouldntHitAGirl physically abusive]], since that's [[FetishRetardant just not hot]]. There are plenty of exceptions.

* Abuses him right back: BelligerentSexualTension

* In Creator/AAPessimal's ''{{Discworld}}'' fic ''FanFic/WhyAndWere'', new Assassin graduate Ruth N'Kweze falls for a Bastard Boyfriend who is ''also'' a [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent wereleopard]]. by the end of the story she is very briefly married to him. The "very briefly" part is explained by her becoming a widow, having remembered she is first and foremost an Assassin. They don't call it "BlackWidow House" for nothing.

* Invoked in ''Manga/{{Horimiya}}''. Hori is something of an AggressiveSubmissive, so she actively encourages [[NiceGuy Miyamura]] to act this way.

** 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 [[ImAManICantHelpIt 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 [[{{Lolicon}} 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.]]

*** Even worse are the China/Japan fanworks that make ImperialChina a [[{{Lolicon}} pedophiliac]] {{Yandere}} who [[AbusiveParents physically, sexually, and psychologically abuses]] a completely wimpified Japan ever since he "discovered" him. (Or the fact that you can swap China and Japan's name in that sentence and replace "pedophiliac" with "sociopathic" and "discovered" with "conquered" [never mind that Japan never actually conquered China in real life, not even during WWII, and that China is actually the stronger nation nowadays] for a summary of at least 60% of Japan/China fanworks.)

* The male leads created by Creator/MayuShinjo have different degrees of this. The better known example is Sakuya Ookochi from ''Manga/SensualPhrase'': this is largely because of an incident where his girlfriend, Aine Yukimura, ended up with a hickey (due to assault from another character); Sakuya, in a fit of jealousy, barged into her class, tore her uniform to reveal the hickey (and her bra strap), then took her home (while class was ongoing) and prepared to rape her. Only when her uniform was almost totally ripped off and the poor girl was weeping hysterically did he stop and realize WTF he was doing. Yeah, he's a Conflicted type with an ''extremely'' DarkAndTroubledPast (as in, [[spoiler: he's an HeroicBastard ChildOfRape, his "father" left him when he learned baby Sakuya wasn't his kid, he was bullied all the time because of his heritage, and his LadyDrunk mom drank herself to death when he was a child]]) and ''[[CharacterizationMarchesOn does]]'' [[CharacterizationMarchesOn get kinda better with time]] ([[spoiler:the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue shows him as a decent father and husband, if somewhat of a LovableSexManiac when he and Aine are alone]]), but that's '''not''' an excuse.
