** It should be noted that these rappers also aren't rapping as themselves, but as characters who are psychopathic serial killers who do all kinds of horrible things, whose actions aren't supposed to be glorified or emulated.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9051968/1/Harry-Potter-Unexpected-Animagus Harry Potter, Unexpected Animagus]]'', Viktor Krum cheats during the First Task by using a rabbit covered in sex-change potion to turn the female dragon he's facing into a male so it'll be less interested in guarding the nest containing the golden egg he needs to retrieve. Unfortunately for him, in his nervousness he bungles the Cheering Charm he tries to cast afterwards, turning it into a Gay Charm. Let's just say that karma can be a ''real'' bitch sometimes...

** Occurs again in "The Black Light Attack" when Tracy adds one of Liz's writers, Sue, to his entourage to prepare for having a daughter. She later rebels and goes out with a guy; when she returns, she looks disheveled and claims that her date put something in her drink and she doesn't remember what happened. Tracy's response? "That's not important right now..."

* In MikeJ's review of ''Film/TheButterflyEffect 3'', a man and woman are taking part in a rape fantasy but the man stops because it feels too wrong for him, annoying the woman. MikeJ comments that he didn't know women were interested in "that sort of thing". He walks off-screen and all that's heard is a woman's desperate screaming. MikeJ in general has a number of pedophilia and rape jokes as his persona is that of a sociopath who takes part in those sort of activities.

* In the ''Series/BlackMirror'' episode "The National Anthem", the Prime Minister is forced to have sex with a pig on national television to save the life of a NoCelebritiesWereHarmed Kate Middleton. Despite the programme being BlackComedy, the Prime Minister's discomfort is portrayed realistically, with him crying openly while committing the act and throwing up immediately afterwards -- the humour arises more from the situation itself.

The whole point of [[BlackComedy a certain type of comedy]] is to [[CrossesTheLineTwice find humour in the horrific]]. When a good joke is made of a horrible thing, [[ForbiddenFruit the darkness of the subject-matter]] gives it [[BlackComedy a unique strength]] [[{{Bathos}} and poignancy]].

Given that sexual assault is as old as humour itself, it's unsurprising that it features in some of the oldest comedy known to us -- though the consideration of [[ValuesDissonance sexual assault as punishment/a humourous come-uppance hasn't travelled particularly well, since modern audiences no longer find sexual assault funny in itself]] -- modern audiences are generally far too aware of the immense pain of the subject matter to be amused by it, except when [[{{Satire}} it and attitudes towards it are effectively satirised]] (e.g. the page quote, which we managed to agree presented a situation which was sufficiently ridiculous [[ActuallyPrettyFunny as to be funny for almost everyone]]).

** Occurs with the use of shadows, in which a sex-starved Lois forces herself onto Peter (taken to abstinence, after being indoctrinated by an abstinence-only educational program). Doesn't take much for him to give in.
** In one episode, Meg was captured by criminals after her family sent her out to get Peter [[ButtMonkey a sandwich while the house was still being robbed]]. [[ArentYouGoingToRavishMe Meg becomes obsessed with her captor in a very short period of time (given her desperation for a boyfriend) and tries to force herself on him.]] The robber is very clearly traumatized, and even goes so far to charge Meg with rape, which the police take her in for, instead of the robber for armed robbery.
** This also happened in "Lethal Weapons". Lois had taken up martial arts and as a consequence, becomes aggressive as hell. One night Peter tries to use the "headache" excuse, but Lois doesn't take no for an answer. The next morning Peter cries about it to Brian.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', "Amazon Women In the Mood" involves Fry, Zapp Brannigan, and Kif being sentenced to "Death By Snoo Snoo" by burly muscular Amazons. Their response is a combination of cheers and groans of pain as they are locked in a room and the entire tribe systematically lines up to have their way with them. They are rescued (eventually) before their pelvises are crushed, and no lasting damage is done. (Note that Fry and Zapp don't seem to have any resistance to the idea itself until it starts really hurting; Kif, who does, manages to escape it, and is rescued by Amy.)
** "How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back" had Inspector Morgan Proctor come to inspect Planet Express. She found Fry's slovenliness incredibly hot, because she spent all her time with neat freaks. She was visibly giving him favor for sleeping with her, and he eventually tried to end the relationship, but made the mistake of sweeping items off a desk in anger. She grins and leaps on him. ("Dirty boooy!") Basically, they do every single thing SensitivityTraining warns against, though gender-flipped from the expected. It's played for both Comedy ''and'' Drama.

* ''{{Jam}}'' had examples of this in addition to most other variants of the trope. In one sketch, a woman talks about her favorite method of foreplay, which is for her husband (who is sitting next to her grinning) to come home crying and tell her he was raped by "A gang of street poofs." In another, a couple realise their young son didn't come home from school, but think that he "decided to stay at school overnight" and don't do anything about it. Even when he's still missing weeks later and they learn that he was seen getting into someone's car, they decide he is probably "staying with a friend." The police eventually find their son's body and inform them that he was raped and murdered - which the parents think is "taking it a bit too far" and resolve to "have a word" with the neighbor suspected of the murder.

* The William Hartnell-era ''Series/DoctorWho'' serial "The Romans" plays for comedy Emperor Nero's repeated attempts to rape Barbara, and then his attempts to blame Barbara for it whenever his wife calls him out on it. A lot of this is an attempt to deal with DeliberateValuesDissonance - the historical Emperor Nero certainly was a rapist - in a way that isn't absolutely traumatic to the family audience, but special mention must be given to a [[SocietyMarchesOn particularly dated]] scene where the Doctor sees Nero running after the screaming and traumatised Barbara, smiles, and affectionately remarks "What an extraordinary fellow."

* "Oasis" song by Amanda Palmer is a happy, upbeat song about a teenage girl who really likes the band Oasis, oh and she was raped. Caused a bit of a media controversy when it and the [[http://youtu.be/8C17yfGyJjM music video]] was released.
* The ''Armstrong and Miller Show'' features a highly offensive ([[BlackComedy black comedy style]]) parody of Fifties comedy singers Music/FlandersAndSwann. In one sketch, they sing the praises of Rohypnol.

* The Italian 70s comedy ''Amici Miei'' has one of these -- an underage girl not only is raped (and impregnated) by an older sleazy co-worker, she's also yelled at, ridiculed and humiliated by her father ''and'' her father's friends because of this ("Puttana!" which means "You whore!"). To make things worse, the girl was heavily implied to be mentally challenged. When said father then goes to confront the rapist, he finds out he's a huge menacing guy, which makes it all really funny because he can't kick his ass, so the rapist gets off scot-free. Most likely a case of ValuesDissonance, as the film is rife with sexist and other politically incorrect jokes.
