* Creator/DaveChappelle did a stand up bit about a serial rapist who targeted men. Most of the humor coming from the bit is less about the actual rapes being funny, and more about society's expectations on how men should usually react to it being absurd.

Most of the humor coming from the bit is less about the actual rapes being funny, and more about society's expectations on how men should usually react to it being absurd. He sums up that while women are given hotlines and concern, society "don't give a fuck" about men, and they're expected to [[MajorInjuryUnderreaction "walk that shit off."]]

* ''ComicBook/TheAuthority'' plays this somewhat straight when Midnighter, enraged at the brutality visited on his lover Apollo, apparently rapes the Commander in retaliation with a jackhammer. Though it's actually {{averted}} just beforehand with the Commander's implied rape of Apollo (which makes this a case of PayEvilUntoEvil).

Though it's arguably KarmicRetribution, since Commander is implied to have raped Apollo first (which is [[AvertedTrope NOT played for laughs]]).

* ''Manga/SasamekiKoto'' has WholesomeCrossdresser Akemiya Masaki cornered by some scary yet goofy men. He takes off his disguise to stop them from pursuing him but it surprisingly ends up just emboldening them. Luckily, he's saved by ActionGirl Sumika Murasame, so things never went too far. The scene was never quite ''funny'', but it was certainly far sillier than the almost-rape of a teenage boy should ever be.

There are multiple {{Double Standard}}s at work here. First and foremost, men being on average physically stronger than women, they are expected to be strong and dominant--including during intercourse--and rape is thought of as something that only happens to women, partly due to their weaker bodies. With this postulate in place, men aren't supposed to be victims, especially not of anything sex-related since a "real man" is always the one putting their penis into other people. Thus, the victim of male-on-male rape has been humiliated and defeated in the worst way possible as well as robbed of his masculinity, while the perpetrator will strangely be considered as exceptionally virile for having been able to sexually dominate a man. Plus, remember that AllMenArePerverts and always want sex, so there's the perception men ''can't'' be raped in the first place because they're too horny to say no. Hence a man who ''is'' raped is weak and unmanly, and [[InsaneTrollLogic therefore]] he's comically pathetic and must have [[WhatMeasureIsANonBadass deserved it]].

* The creator of ''BerserkAbridged'' played the rapes of Guts, Griffith and [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYOu even himself]] for--admittedly ''very'' dark--laughs but consciously chose to leave out [[spoiler: Casca's rape during the Eclipse]] as he felt there was no way to make it funny.

* The predations of Wanderer Meiyuan in ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts'' were played for laughs… including featuring a character who was so incredibly unworldly that he didn't realize what was happening and thus didn't object.

It's even treated as a joke when the "treatment" is given to a fourteen year old boy.

** On the other hand, the show also satirized jokes about the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penn_State_child_sex_abuse_scandal Penn State child sex abuse scandal]], in which the football coach [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerry_Sandusky Jerry Sandusky]] got busted for molesting dozens of boys. The ''South Park'' episode "The Poor Kid" introduced Mr. Adams, a DepartmentOfChildDisservices worker who enjoys [[ForcedMeme awkwardly shoehorning]] jokes about the scandal. Cartman calls him out on how unfunny and uncreative the jokes are: "All you’re doing is taking something topical and revamping old [[PedophilePriest Catholic]] jokes!"
