* ''Manga/{{Sanctuary}}'' tries to play with Tokai habit of raping random women as {{Fanservice}} or BlackComedyRape, but its always so pointless that makes you dislike the character even if you liked him before.

* In ''Fanfic/InThisWorldAndTheNext'', Harry and Hermione kill RonTheDeathEater because he raped her. Any number of other things could have (to paraphrase the page quote) filled the same function, and might not have opened the enormous PlotHole that this did.

* ''Film/TheCavern'': The film ends ''during'' a rape scene, which is simply there to shock the viewer.
* ''Film/TheCondemned'' contains a scene where one of the characters is {{forced to watch}} as his wife gets raped and then murdered. This adds nothing to the plot whatsoever, and is just needless ugliness.
* ''Franchise/EvilDead'':
** In ''Film/TheEvilDead1981'', the infamous "tree rape" scene was so completely unneeded in the movie, and added so much to its controversy, that director Creator/SamRaimi deeply, deeply regrets including it.
** In ''Film/EvilDead2'', which recreates many of the same situations as the first movie, it's averted altogether as the evil trees simply ''kill'' their victim instead.
* After the remaining cast is mugged in ''Film/FridayThe13thPartVIIIJasonTakesManhattan'', the perpetrators decide to take the FinalGirl with them as well and attempt to rape her at their hideout. Fortunately, Jason shows up to dispatch the duo.
* The rape scenes in ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes'', though the sequel to the remake tries to justify it by explaining the mutant numbers are low, and they needed normal people for breeding purposes.
* ''Film/JackFrost1997'': The infamous "snowman rape scene". Jack brutally kills everybody else but stops to rape the teenage girl taking a bath.

* One especially grotesque example can be found in the third book of Gloria Tesch's Literature/MaradoniaSaga. Quote: "The false monk Larivier had drugged Krimhilda. He now used his manhood and took advantage of her as darkness fell over Notali, the city of evil." (page 349)

* The fifth season of ''Series/{{Engrenages}}'' has a graphic rape scene where a minor member of Oz's female GangBanger crew is raped by a security guard at an office that she was stealing information from. The two characters are extremely minor (the man's literal sole purpose is to appear, commit the rape, and then only appear in one more scene in the season, being questioned by the cops), the rape has absolutely no impact on the plot, and it seems to have been put in solely to dial up the CrapsackWorld atmosphere.



* Within one calendar year (2005), so many characters on the soap opera ''Series/{{Passions}}'' were raped that it was known as "The Year of the Rapes". Adding insult to injury, only one of these stories was handled even remotely seriously or realistically (the victim dressed shabbily and could not bear to be touched). All other victims went on with their lives as though nothing had happened.
* ''Series/{{Rome}}'' has a few. Marc Antony memorably pauses his army's march back to Rome so he could stop and rape a shepherd girl by the side of the road. Mark Antony [[AnythingThatMoves being Mark Antony]], this was probably TruthInTelevision.

* Infamously, ''IdentityCrisis'' created the RetCon of Dr. Light raping Sue Dibny in The Watchtower, and worse, we only found out about it ''after'' Sue had been murdered and its only purpose was to motivate the heroes into crossing into [[MoralDissonance very questionable territory]]. And worse, the entire rape plot turns out to be [[spoiler:a RedHerring]] when it comes to the central murder mystery.

* Frequently seen in the books of DanielleSteel, mostly done in the style of BreakTheCutie or KickTheDog. However, at least one example was a perfect demonstration of the first scenario--the [[MarySue heroine]] was already grappling with her daughter's near-fatal car accident, her husband's infidelity, and her [[MyBelovedSmother overbearing mother]]. So of course, it turns out that she was sexually abused by her father.
