* An odd accidental example in ''Film/SpiderMan1''; Peter Parker manages to take out the school bully ''completely by accident.'' Well, not by accident, but he begins by accidentally activating his webbing for the first time, which latches on to the bully's lunch. When Parker panics and retreats from the lunch hall at a brisk walk, the lunch still attached, the bully of course follows him with the intention of battering Peter. Cue the bully cornering Peter against a row of lockers and fruitlessly throwing a series of punches, which Peter, with his spider-enhanced reflexes, effortlessly dodges, before Peter throws a single punch which knocks the bully on his ass! All without Peter knowing what the hell is going on!

She explains that in [[SpaceX Space]] Preschool, the other kids talked her into playing pretend, but had her be the villain so they could beat her up. Eventually, Nyarko came in and trounced the bullies, winning Cuuko's affection.

* Ranma from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' does this occasionally -- for example, she stopped Kodachi from beating up the Furinkan gymnastic team further, rescued Gosenkugi from a group of masked kids trying to rob him, and sought a direct fight with Mariko Konjou when Akane and the volleyball team were defeated ''and'' humiliated by her tricks.
** Ryoga too, most notably for defending a BroughtDownToNormal Ranma from the rest of the males on the [[FanNickname Nerima Wrecking Crew]], since he thought that it was not fair to have them gang up on him in such circumstances.
** Shampoo, in the episode of the Killer From Jusenkyo. When the Jusenkyo Killer had Ranma and Genma hoisted up on a rope, Shampoo jumped in to attack him despite being in cat form at the time. She also saved Ranma from Mousse when he tried to splash him with Spring of Drowned Duck water. Also in the 1st Movie, Shampoo saves Ranma and Lychee from Monlon, telling them to go on ahead while she deals with her.
** Akane is also a good example. More than once, she has tried to defend Ranma from the Nerima Wrecking Crew too, and kept trying to help Ranma fight off Ryoga during their first fight. And she's not this ''only'' towards Ranma: she also steps in to defend her friends when Happosai is around, and right after Ranma saved the gym team, she accepted to fight Kodachi for their sake - despite not being good at more artistic gym styles.

* Ryoma Echizen from ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'' doesn't show much emotion about it, but he ''really'' doesn't like it when his friends and teammates are bullied. See the beginning of the Yamabuki arc as one of the biggest examples: when ''a whole tennis team'' started bullying his FragileFlower friend Sakuno, Ryoma stepped in and ''defeated everyone in the team'' as punishment. [[spoiler:The only exception was when Kachirou had a fight with Arai, but that was because he wanted Kachirou to prove his own strength. And he did.]]

* Shota Oruha in ''Manga/{{Takamagahara}}'' uses his powers to fight bullies, presumably. However, what he considers a "bully" is incredibly skewed to where he just attacks anybody who isn't as low on the social ladder as he is, along with the protagonist simply because he was seen in the company of an actual bully and the bully didn't attempt to harm him.



* In ''Anime/YuGiOh'', Ushio first presents himself as one, but turns out to be a bully far worse than those he beats up. Yami Yugi pre-Duel Monsters was this, doling out penalty games to the MonsterOfTheWeek bullies (occasionally to KnightTemplar extremes).

** An and Tomoka, too. Both girls detest to see abusive situations and will call out the culprits even if they're at risk for it.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'':
** Ranma does this occasionally -- for example, she stopped Kodachi from beating up the Furinkan gymnastic team further, rescued Gosenkugi from a group of masked kids trying to rob him, and sought a direct fight with Mariko Konjou when Akane and the volleyball team were defeated ''and'' humiliated by her tricks.
** Ryoga too, most notably for defending a BroughtDownToNormal Ranma from the rest of the males on the [[FanNickname Nerima Wrecking Crew]], since he thought that it was not fair to have them gang up on him in such circumstances.
** Akane is also a good example. More than once, she has tried to defend Ranma from the Nerima Wrecking Crew too, and kept trying to help Ranma fight off Ryoga during their first fight. And
she's not this ''only'' towards Ranma: she also steps in love with Nyarko to defend her friends when Happosai is around, and right after Ranma saved the gym team, she accepted to fight Kodachi for their sake - despite their races not being mortal enemies. She explains that in [[SpaceX Space]] Preschool, the other kids talked good at more artistic gym styles.
* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'':
** Makoto Kino was expelled from
her into playing pretend, but had her be the villain so they could beat her up. Eventually, Nyarko came in and trounced the old school for fighting bullies, winning Cuuko's affection. Later on Mahiro asks Nyarko if she remembers this, and she responds that all she remembers from Space Preschool is playing a "game" called [[LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex Imagine Breaker]] where ran around [[ComedicSociopathy beating up anyone she saw playing pretend]] -- which included Cuuko.
* Karma of ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'' was placed
her first appearance in Class E for bully-hunting the wrong bully -- a top honor student who was [[Anime/SailorMoon original anime]] has her beating up a student with poorer grades. The Chairman at their school has some out-of-order priorities. Even now, Karma's favorite past time is to seek out and make the lives of people who pick on others miserable.
* Heavily implied in the cause of [[Manga/BlueExorcist Rin]] [[AntiAntiChrist Okumura]]. Aside from our introduction to our hero is of him beating up a bunch of
three delinquents for killing/torturing ''pigeons'', he used to always protect his younger brother [[CuteBookworm Yukio]] and we later get a few flashbacks that show a lot of the time he got in trouble for jumping to attack others who hurt or mocked those weaker than them. This most likely plays are harassing Usagi on her way to school.
** [[Manga/CodenameSailorV Back in her days as Sailor V]], Minako Aino would often stop whatever she was doing to transform
into his choice Sailor V and deal with bullies she stumbles upon, no matter how urgent whatever she was doing before was (and in fact getting late to school at least once).
* Sora
of being an Exorcist; not ''Manga/{{Shitsurakuen}}'' is a female KnightInShiningArmour who fights to stop the boys from bullying the girls which they claim as their own. Sadly, the odds are pretty much bigger of against her.
* Shota Oruha in ''Manga/{{Takamagahara}}'' uses his powers to fight bullies, presumably. However, what he considers
a "bully" you can get than an powerful demon who is incredibly skewed to where he just attacks and hurts anybody who isn't as low on the much weaker humans.
* ''Manga/DragonBall'':
** One of the types of people Goku dislikes the most are those who abuse their power. When Krillin is put down by one of his former temple classmates for being a weakling, Goku tells Krillin to go all out when
social ladder as he fights him, when before he tells Krillin to hold back to keep from hurting people. He also despise the Saiyans for being {{Space Pirate}}s who wipe out people weaker than them and wants nothing to do is, along with his own race. Although Goku doesn't grow stronger necessarily to protect others, the protagonist simply because he does believes that being powerful gives you certain responsibilities, like not terrorizing those weaker than you.
** Gohan inherited his father's hatred for bullies. He doesn't want to fight to grow stronger or to test himself against strong enemies like Goku, but he will fight to protect
was seen in the company of an actual bully and save people from enemies who abused their strength like the Saiyans, Frieza, Cell, and Buu. He even takes it a step further in becoming Saiyaman, a superhero who goes out of his way bully didn't attempt to hunt down criminals, aka bullies.harm him.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/YuGiOh'', Ushio first presents himself as one, but turns out to be a bully far worse than those he beats up. Yami Yugi pre-Duel Monsters was this, doling out penalty games to the MonsterOfTheWeek bullies (occasionally to KnightTemplar extremes).
* In the first episode of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'', Kamille gets beaten up by Titan's military police. Later in the episode, he comes back in a Gundam and tells the MP, "Wanna know how it feels to be picked on by somebody bigger than you?", before taking off to join LaResistance.
