* In ''Literature/{{Demons}}'' by Creator/FyodorDostoevsky, Anton von Lembke is a spineless doormat for his wife and is generally a weak-willed person. The narrator says with total contempt that he was a virgin when he married his wife, while she wasn't.

* ''FanFic/TheSecondTry'':
** Shinji is quite passive and Asuka very domineering. Most of the time, Asuka makes plans and handles everything necessary while her husband follows her lead or makes whatever she commands. At one point after returning to the past, Touji thinks his best friend looks like a henpecked husband, not knowing how right he is.
--->'''Touji:''' Man, how can a guy be that henpecked?
** As seen during a flashback in ''[[Webcomic/AkiChansLife the sequel]]'', Gendo's reply to anything what his wife said was: "Yes, Yui", "Of course, Yui", "Whatever you say, Yui".

* ''Fanfic/TheChildOfLove'': Shinji is this to Asuka even before getting married. Whatever she wanted, she eventually got it because he went along with everything. Touji lampshaded it in the fifth chapter:
-->'''Toji:''' (to Shinji) Not yet married, and she's already henpecking you…

** [[http://garfield.com/us-acres/1997-09-01 Also, when a hole-to-hole salesworm shows up at a hole and asks if the worm who answered was "the man of the house"]], said worm responded "I'll get her".

* In ''Fanfic/BoysUndSenshado'', Miho's [[InvisibleParents father]] is implied to be this, as Miho says that "(her) mother runs the family and really dominates over (her) father." [[spoiler:Miho's father does, however, vocally object to when his wife disowns Miho]].

* The fact that he has something he calls a "husband voice" indicates that BJ likes to ''pretend'' to be this in the [[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} Contractually Obligated Chaos]] series. He mostly uses it to say "Yes, dear." It's entirely a joke, however; the OfficialCouple is very HappilyMarried.
* Ed shows hints of being this in the Fanfic/ElementalChessTrilogy, but it's more of a RunningGag than anything.

** 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.]]

* Battler implies that this is the sort of relationship his father and stepmother, Rudolph and Kyrie, have in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi''. 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.

** ''Porky's Romance'', the first appearance of "Petunia Pig" in a Warner short, ran on this trope. Porky buys a box of chocolates to propose to Petunia and is thwarted by Petunia's annoying little dog repeatedly, as well as Petunia, who seems only interested in wanting to eat the chocolates. Porky, heartbroken, attempts suicide ([[ValuesDissonance aren't old cartoons grand?]]), but ends up hitting his head and imagines marrying Petunia and a sexy honeymoon period. After a "[[IncrediblyLamePun Time Munches On!]]" title card, Petunia and her dog are shown stretched out on the couch, fat as houses, and happily gorging themselves on seemingly infinite boxes of chocolates strewn all about the house while Porky slaves away in the kitchen doing all the cooking and cleaning and caring for the children while [[LargeAndInCharge Petunia bosses him around]]. One really does have to wonder how the writers of this one viewed marriage, and if they knew that chocolate is lethal to dogs. [[ItGetsBetter Porky gets better]]. Waking from the nightmare, he runs away, returning only to take back his chocolates and give the dog a deserving kick in the rear!
