* The deformed killer in ''Film/{{Humongous}}'' is a result of his mother being raped during a LaborDay cocktail party. Since she killed her rapist right afterwards, she came to see the child as a curse inflicted on her.

* ''Words Worth'' uses it as [[MommasBabyDaddysMaybe a minor plot point]], concerning Miyu's parentage. All evidence strongly implies that [[LadyOfBlackMagic Maria's]] [[IdenticalGrandson daughter]] was the result of having been raped by Astral 20 years prior. Miyu's age (18) places her around the time she would have been conceived, plus, Maria is unwed and isn't said to have been with anyone else since the incident with Astral. Further, he and Maria are believed to be the biological offspring of Pollux and his wife, also named Maria. If so, it would mean [[BrotherSisterIncest Maria was raped by her biological brother]][[note]][[SeparatedAtBirth without either of them knowing they were related]] by blood[[/note]] and gave birth to their daughter/niece.

This trope itself is TruthInTelevision, and not just in human beings. Scientists have found that in many species, males who cannot attract a willing mate will ambush a female as a last resort. Some species have a depressingly large number of males commit rape as their ''first'' resort, usually leading to an evolutionary "arms race" between males and females. Ducks are a classic example of this; if you were wondering why male mallards have [[GagPenis such enormous cloacas]],[[note]]The terms "penis" and "vagina" don't apply to bird genitals, and you ''will'' [[SomewhereAnOrnithologistIsCrying irritate biologists]] if you mention a bird having a penis or vagina; for both sexes, it's called the "cloaca" instead[[/note]] it's because female ducks have evolved long, branching cloacas with at least one dead end specifically in order to make forced copulation difficult and unlikely to result in conception. Some biologists have even claimed rape is an evolutionary adaption, though this view isn't accepted by most, and it remains a very controversial idea. In addition, some studies[[http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs12110-003-1014-0]] suggest that, statistically, rape may have a higher probability to result in pregnancy than consensual intercourse, although why this may be remains unknown.

unknown. This was actually viewed as medically ''impossible'' for centuries in the West, due to a theory that female and male genitalia were mirror images, thus conception supposedly required ejaculation by both sexes, which they held would only happen if the sex were enjoyed (i.e. consensual). Though there is some truth to the "mirror image" idea, the latter is not the case. However, you can see the problem already: the woman's pregnancy was actually a ''defense'' to rape charges. There is a remnant of the "no pregnancy due to rape" concept still floating around, as Todd Akin's infamous comments on "legitimate rape" made clear in 2012. Along with this, the idea that an orgasm means it was enjoyed, thus [[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization rape must not have occurred]]. This isn't the case though-orgasm has been documented to occur involuntarily for men ''and'' women.

* The comic ''Smax'' reveals that Jeff Smax and his twin sister Rexa were conceived when their warrior mother was raped by an ogre. A ''very large'' ogre, making this a very dark example of HotSkittyOnWailordAction. It was mentioned that she was unusually strong, to the point that she survived the rape, and then the pregnancy, and possibly could even have survived the birth if they had not been twins.

* In ''Literature/TheWarGods'' the minor character Arsham was conceived when hi smother was raped by Churnazh, Prince of Navahk. Unlike many cultures Hradani don't consider this to be a mark against him since they have a low birth rate and regard all children as precious. As a consequence following Churnazh's overthrow Arsham is named Prince of Navahk (it helps that his half-brothers are all rapists and assholes as well).
