* In Literature/TheBible, proverbs like "Better to live on the corner of a roof than to share a house with a nagging wife" seem to be speaking toward these types of people to garner some level of sympathy, although they can alternately be interpreted as instructions for husbands to ''not'' give their wives any reason to be nagging.

* Battler implies that this is the sort of relationship his father and stepmother, Rudolph and Kyrie, have in ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry''. Battler also considers his father an [[ParentingTheHusband irresponsible, philandering manchild]], so he doesn't really mind that his stepmom "has an iron grip on [Rudolph's] balls", as he puts it.

* Among the colorful assortment of individuals you meet in Ordon Village during the prologue of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' are Sera and Hanch. Hanch is a rather diminutive man who is always hunched forward and seems rather morose who owns the town's general store. That being said, his wife, Sera, is the one who handles the actual sales. It's also heavily implied that she cares far more for her cat than her husband, and she constantly makes comments about her "good for nothing husband."

** Goku is a zigzagged example. Even though his TunDere Chichi usually seems completely in control of him, when he really ''wants'' to defy her wishes (which is usually for ''world saving business'') he proves to be entirely capable of ignoring her. Normally, his easygoing personality just makes him happy to defer to Chichi's more forceful nature.

* In ''Literature/TheSilverChair'', the Black Knight is brainwashed into being [[SickeninglySweethearts utterly]][[ParentingTheHusband subservient]] to the Lady of the Green Kirtle. When Jill tells mentions people "don't think much of men who are bossed around by their wives" where she's from, he tells her she'll doubtless think differently when she's married herself. Jill finds this answer even more repulsive.

** The Doctor has some elements of this with River Song, even before he married her. Of course, [[HaveWeMetYet she was already married to him at that point]].
--->'''Amy:''' Is River Song your wife? 'Cause she's someone from your future. And the way she talks to you, I've never seen anyone do that. She's kind of like, you know, "Heel, boy." She's Mrs. Doctor from the future, isn't she? Is she going to be your wife one day?

** As of Anime/DragonBallSuper, ''Vegeta'' has become one to Bulma, paralleling Goku's relationship with Chichi. Though he is more prone to ignoring her, he is ''terrified'' of offending her, and will concede to her wishes when push comes to shove. ''Super'' even has him note that Saiyan men ''[[AmazonChaser really]]'' [[AmazonChaser have a thing for strong-willed women.]]

* ''Manga/ShamanKing'' has an interesting example in Anna and Yoh... partially because they're both [[ToyShip 14 years old]] and technically just ENGAGED to be married once they've both grown up. This, however, does not stop Anna from referring to herself as his wife - or treating him like a HenpeckedHusband. Indeed, she tends to henpeck ANY man who goes near her, recruiting Yoh's TrueCompanions to clean her house, do the shopping and cook for her, since she's busy making sure the laid-back Yoh doesn't slack off on his training! She has shades of a heroic LadyMacBeth too, in that she pushes Yoh towards his ambition of becoming the Shaman King - according to her, solely so that she can enjoy an easy life as the Shaman King's wife. Of course, in truth, [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther she really cares deeply for Yoh and has enormous faith in his abilities]]. Her henpecking is simply the only way for her to break through his lazy "It'll work out somehow" attitude and make him undertake the TrainingFromHell he genuinely needs in order to achieve his ambition.
