** Akito is a one person domestic abuse factory- including slapping Kureno for going outside without Akito's permission.
** Akito also has the reputation of physically or even [[MindRape emotionally]] abusing ''everyone else'' in the Sohma family, to the point where some were permanently injured. Even worse than slapping Kureno for going outside without permission, Akito follows through on seriously injuring any Sohma girls that any Sohma boys like, pulling off double the abuse (the girls are physically injured, and the boys are unable to comfort them for fear it will make Akito even angrier and step up the abuse). And that's without the fact that every member of the Zodiac sees Akito as God, adding extra dimensions of emotional and mental abuse to every interaction.

* In ''Literature/QueenOfTheTearling'', Andalie's husband abuses her and the children. She walks away from him, taking her children, when she's given the opportunity, but still protects him. She hints that she just suffers from irrational love, but since she [[spoiler: also has some supernatural abilities, it is not clear in the first book whether she knows of some role her husband has yet to play.]] There's also Kelsea's uncle, who insists that he never beat any of his female slaves ... except the one he keeps on a leash like a dog. It is very clear that he is abusive, though perhaps not often physically so.

* George Wickham of ''WebVideo/TheLizzieBennetDiaires'' manages to be ''more'' vile than this book counterpart, emotionally abusing Lydia, pressuring her into a committed relationship before she's ready, isolating her from her family and telling her only ''he'' loves and understands her, threatening to leave and making her feel like no one will ever love her like he will. Watching Lydia's vlogs with him in them is like watching a trainwreck. [[spoiler:And then he pressures her into making a sex tape to "prove" she loved him, and then tries to release it online for money ''without her consent''.]] And before the series, he dated Gigi Darcy. [[spoiler:Gigi's brother told Gigi he was only dating her for her money, but she didn't believe him. So he proved it, offering George a check in exchange for leaving. George took it.]] Given Gigi's apparent fear of him, it's implied something similar to what happened to Lydia may have been going on before Gigi's brother intervened.
