* Music/{{OFWGKTA}} frequently plays with this trope. While frontman Tyler, The Creator often rapes women either as revenge for rejecting his advances or simply ForTheEvulz, he himself also gets molested or raped on several occasions by Chris Stokes ("French"), JesusChrist ("Splatter"), JeffreyDahmer and Music/RKelly ("Swag Me Out") and Music/MichaelJackson ("Tron Cat"). Earl Sweatshirt's self-titled debut album also features frequent bouts of this trope.

* In ''Film/StrokerAce'', serial womanizer Stroker Ace sets his sights on Pembrook Feeney, a classic example of IncorruptiblePurePureness who has never slept with a man before. His advances consistently fail, so he decides to get her drunk and take advantage of her in that state. He succeeds, but she passes out before they can do the deed. After undressing her, during which it is clear that Stroker is at least trying to control himself, Stroker comments that he could ravish her as she was, and she would never find out. [[spoiler: Ultimately averted, as Stroker confesses to her that nothing happened the morning after.]]

As a general rule, the best comedic material about sexual assault demonstrates a certain compassion and understanding (Sexual assault as largely a question of power/control rather than sex, having effects unique to each victim (sexuality, gender, species, etc. of perpetrator being irrelevant), having no influence on sexuality of victim or perpetrator, etc, etc) that the worst does not - in favour of a kind of sneering dismissiveness that hints at very real contempt - ''especially'' when it takes the form of [[CrossesTheLineTwice deliberate mean-spiritedness and/or ignorance that highlights our own compassion and knowledge]].

* In ''Film/TankGirl'' the eponymous character jokes about her first time having sex... with her daddy.
* In the SelfParody ''Film/Gremlins2TheNewBatch'' there is a scene that mocks of the first movie when Kate explains why she hates Christmas [[spoiler:her father died while trying to pass as Santa Claus getting down the chimney]], she explains, again, why she hates President's Day: because she was molested as a little girl by a guy dressed as Abraham Lincoln. The scene even made his co-star laugh at the camera.

* In ''Film/YoungFrankenstein'' Victor's frigid fiance Elizabeth is raped by the monster. This is treated as comedy since she reacts by singing joyfully, looking like the Bride of Frankenstein in the next scene, and later treating the Monster as a HenpeckedHusband.

-->One level in particular takes place in an alien nest where Earth's women... look like they're getting raped. In fact, they are. That's the big joke of the level. The aliens are raping the women to create babies.

* In ''SouthParkTheStickOfTruth,'' after you are all ambushed in the Giggling Donkey Inn and save Cartman from being beaten up, he tells you to go and save Princess Kenny from being raped. Butters cheerfully spurs you on with phrases like "They're probably raping Princess Kenny right now". Once you reach the landing you can hear a bed thumping and Princess Kenny squealing. Open the door and you find [[spoiler: a Drow Elf and Princess Kenny jumping on the bed together.]] After you get back to Cartman he asks "How badly did they rape you, Princess Kenny?" and Kenny's reply is "Not too badly." Sexual assault is certainly more funny when it's being interpreted by 11-year-olds.

* Happens on ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' with Steve and his friends a lot, although it's usually more molestation then rape. Who could forget Randy in "The 42 Year Old Virgin".

** In gym class when everyone has to tell a secret, Snot's is "My therapist says I'm a bad kisser".
** Snot also remarks nonchalantly "Maybe now [that I have a girlfriend] my wrestling coach will finally believe I'm heterosexual and let me shower myself." in "Jenny Fromdabloc."
** Roger did that weird chin innuendo with Steve in "License to Till." In "School Lies" when he's dressed up like Steve, he wants Stan to kiss him on the lips because he "wants that kind of relationship".

** The character of Glenn Quagmire lives and breathes this trope. He is guilty of rape, sexual harassment, sexual assault, necrophilia, and a host of other sex crimes (and for that matter, also non-sex crimes). He's been caught spying on ladies in changing rooms, been shown to keep a harem of Asian women who are likely sex slaves in his home, blatantly drugs and date rapes multiple women, stole the murdered corpse of one of his dates so he could take it home to have sex with it, and is explicitly referred to as a convicted rapist more than once by the characters. It is all PlayedForLaughs and relies ''heavily'' on RefugeInAudacity.

* In ''Manga/{{Rizelmine}}'', Aoi's initial meeting with her future boyfriend has her accidentally using a mind-controlling helmet on him, which results in him fiercely licking between her legs, much to her distress. Said future boyfriend was a dog. When her three friends came, she thought she was saved but it went FromBadToWorse for her, after seeing the rape of women by the women section. Meanwhile, although their first meeting was rough, Aio's relationship turned into what she would consider puppy love, but to the now non-mind-controlled pup it was a literal [[MoralEventHorizon Rape The Dog]] moment.

* In the New Zealand Zombie-[[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent WereSheep]]-Horror-Comedy ''Film/BlackSheep2007'', the main hero tries to masquerade as a sheep with a wool seat-cover across a field of flesh eating haggis-ingredients. One of said animals takes an interest in our disguised hero (who is male) and... "hilarity" ensues.

* David Mitchell in his Soapbox YouTube series discusses how rape sounds horrible standalone, but loses its edge when not, on the example of "Raping and Pillaging". Going off to Rape and Pillage sound like jolly good fun, but takes a dark turn if someone states "...Well, NOT pillaging".

* The AttemptedRape of Grace on ''TheSecretLifeOfTheAmericanTeenager'' was captured by a nearby building's security camera. The news station kept playing it like it was a blooper reel, and the general population found it to be funny too. Apparently the "humor" was supposed to be that Grace bowed her head and said a quick prayer before picking up a broken bottle and defending herself, or the laugh was supposed to be that her friend Ricky came rushing in to help her and he wasn't wearing a shirt. Either way, the reaction of most viewers was that it wasn't funny.
