* The music video for Shawn Mendes' "Treat You Better", where Mendes is portrayed trying to convince a girl to build up the strength to leave her abusive boyfriend - the video ends with the number for the National Abuse Hotline appearing on the screen. It's ambiguous as to whether the song itself is meant to portray abuse too: The narrator doesn't like how the subject's boyfriend treats her and thinks she'd be better off leaving with him, but the lyrics don't really mention why, other than the fact that he's not "a gentleman" and causes her to cry on a regular basis.

* In Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Komarr]]'', the best Ekaterin can say about her husband is "he never beat me". His behavior--including belittling her constantly, turning anything she says that can possibly be interpreted as criticism into an attack on her by calling her "selfish", and wall-punching tantrums--is severe emotional abuse.

* ''NodameCantabile'' has a notable example of a male-on-female variant played for laughs in exactly the same way as the above female-on-male examples. Male {{tsundere}} Chiaki often resorts to physical violence when [[CloudCuckooLander Nodame]] does things that end up annoying him in the manner of a BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine. Nodame even admits to playing up the Boke And Tsukkomi Routine simply because Chiaki's such a perfect StraightMan.

* ''Theatre/CyranoDeBergerac'': Ragueneau clearly doesn't care about Lisa;s feelings or opinions; he prefers his [[FalseFriend poet friends]] over her. Then Cyrano notices the very obvious truth that Lisa is cheating on him with a Mousketter. The second Act seems to play this situation for humor, but the very first words of the Third Act [[DeconstructedTrope show us the severe consequences]] [[PlayedForDrama of this when Raguenau admits]] he had an InterruptedSuicide when his wife abandoned him.

* In ''Theatre/TrialByJury'', Edwin defends himself against the charge of breach of promise of marriage by defaming himself, proclaiming that he smokes and drinks to excess and that "I'm sure I would thrash her, perhaps I should kick her." The Judge proposes to get the defendant drunk and see if he would treat her as he said. Everyone else objects, with the natural exception of the defendant.

** Later in the series we meet an even worse abuser than Saionji, [[spoiler: Anthy's brother Akio Ohtori. He physically, emotionally, and sexually abuses her. He rapes her weekly, will get physically violent if she doesn't listen to him right away, and often calls her mean names and tells her that only he can love her. He pretty much is a textbook abuser and the series can be seen as a show how abuse horribly and messes up someone. Namely Anthy]].

** 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.
