** 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.

A common feature in the AwfulWeddedLife DomCom genre. Originally, this trope was a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]] of expectations -- a husband dominated by his wife was funny because it was the reverse of [[ValuesDissonance the normal, proper situation]] where the man was in charge of the household. After all, [[IWasBeatenByAGirl a real man could never be dominated by any mere woman]], so the Henpecked Husband must be a [[NonActionGuy wimp]] who [[WhatMeasureIsANonBadass deserves it]]. Today, the notion that the man must be the head of the family is mostly a DiscreditedTrope, but the idea that there's [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale something inherently hilarious about a woman dominating a man]] still lingers. While cries of HenpeckedHusband are sometimes raised at the slightest implication of a wife being in charge of anything, it's only very recently that it's started becoming common for the truly overpowering examples to be held up as [[AllAbusersAreMale abusive.]]

to:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'': Stan Smith sometimes fall under this status. Even though he is frequently portrayed as a domineering and tough man of the house, his wife Francine sometimes nags and lectures him whenever he does something stupid or impulsive. Stan obviously does not like being henpecked as in "Four Little Words", he frames Francine for a murder his boss Avery Bullock committed just so Francine wouldn't tell Stan "I told you so".

** Morbo, the alien news anchorman for Earth is hinted to be one such husband as when he appeared with his wife at a party in the episode "Three Hundred Big Boys" as she is seen constantly correcting Morbo's tie, making her and Morbo look just like the couple seen in this trope page's photo
** Lrrr, the ruler of Omicron Persei 8 is a textbook example of one. He is a wannabe alien overlord but his own wife, Ndnd not only constantly nags him like no tomorrow but doesn't hesitate to verbally abuse him frequently. The "Lrrenconcilable Ndndifferences" is where the tripe on Lrrr is most blatantly shown as that episode fladerized Ndnd into a shrew who went as far as hitting him over the head with a frying pan and kicking him out of the house all because he screwed up in an invasion and instead brought her a mask replica of J.J Abrams face as a gift.

* ''Film/IShotJesseJames'': ''UsefulNotes/JesseJames'' of all people ends up being this. His wife Zerelda spends most of her screentime complaining about his friend Robert Ford and urging him to quit the robbery business. Jesse even tries to hide the map of his next robbery, just so she won’t get on his case anymore.
