Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Frontier}}'': Lord Benton is pretty blunt about how little he cares about the prostitutes he brought over from England when he issues Imogen an ImpliedDeathThreat. As he points out, since he already willfully sacrifices the men under his command, how much does she think her own life is worth to someone like him?

* Yumi teamed up with BigBad Makoto Shishio in ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' because the Meiji government declared that geishas and courtesans like herself were worth little more than cattle. Shishio, in his own warped way, was one of the only people who valued Yumi as a human being.

Shishio, in his own warped way, was one of the only people who valued Yumi as a human being. [[spoiler: When she tries to stop Kenshin and Shishio's fight, he stabs thropugh her - but Yumi welcomed it since it meant she could finally help him in battle. Shishio pays respects by holding her in his arms until she dies, and soon they're TogetherInDeath.]]
** Yumi's backstory is the center of the ''To rule flame'' prequel, [[spoiler: and Yumi's best friend and fellow prostitute Hanabi is bloodily murdered, much to Yumi's anger. When the owner of the brothel doesn't give a crap about Hanabi's death ''and'' the kidnapping of two little girls that Yumi is also friends with, Yumi [[PleaseIWillDoAnything offers herself to Shishio]] as his DarkMistress in exchange for punishment for the culprit.]]



* Inverted in ''Manga/TokyoGhoul[=:Re=]'', with ArcVillain Nutcracker. A beautiful and sadistic ghoul, she works as a {{Dominatrix}} in a hardcore S&M club and uses her job to hunt for victims.

* In ''Anime/WeissKreuz'', Yohji befriends a HookerWithAHeartOfGold named Maki.... but since the Kritiker guys all suffer of CartwrightCurse, the poor girl ends up murdered by her pimp (who doubles as the episode's villain) for helping him. [[ThedogBitesBack And then Yohji makes VERY sure that the pimp pays for it.]]



** Played straight and subverted by the first story "The Hard Goodbye," in which the death of a prostitute in the opening pages kicks off the plot. [[spoiler:It turns out that the killers targeted prostitutes because nobody cared about them, but Marv decides to bring down the entire operation to avenge the murdered call girl who showed him a little kindness.]]

** Creator/StewartLee incorporated Littlejohn's reaction into a routine about [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad political correctness]] imagining Littlejohn travelling around the UK chiselling "Prostitute... not someone who works as a prostitute... I hate women. Obviously... and I'm glad when they die." onto the graves of such victims.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Brimstone}}'': The safety of the hookers in the brothel is a secondary concern at best. The owner rips out the tongue of one of the girls for talking back to a client, and another one is hanged for stopping a client from raping the young Joanna.

* The narrator in the Arctic Monkeys song "When The Sun Goes Down" expresses concern that the prostitute whose propositioning he politely declines might end up as one of these, whether at the hands of the "scummy man" (either her pimp or just a creepy weirdo) he notices hanging around near her or a guy who propositions her immediately after the narrator declines her.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate'' has a DLC where Evie hunts down Jack The Ripper himself and as such defies the trope. The prostitutes are helpful allies and portrayed very sympathetically, and when [[spoiler:the Assassins deem them acceptable losses in exchange for covering up one of their own gone rogue]], Evie is ''pissed''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Series/Travelers}}'': One man kills a number of cam girls when he bombs their building for revenge when they stop him from contacting one he'd been obsessed with, claiming it's God's will. Pinnock later gets disgusted when the state cuts a plea deal to get him life with a chance of parole, rather than life without parole or death, thinking it's because they don't think such victims matter. [[spoiler: It's actually because he's become a Traveler.]]

* There was once a brothel in X-Men that advertised that all its workers were mutants. Naturally, it didn't even make it a full issue before anti-mutant extremists attacked it and killed all but one of the prostitutes.
