* ''Series/TheLastOfTheSummerWine'', also written by Roy Clarke, also featured this trope in abundance, usually paired with the show's powerful {{Apron Matron}}s. With the exception of the main trio of bachelors[=/=]widowers[=/=]divorcees, almost every man in the programme was this, particularly [[YourCheatingHeart Howard Sibshaw]], who was so terrified of his wife Pearl that he never got around to any actual philandering with Marina; Wesley Pegden, whose wife Edie was a sort of prototype for Hyacinth Bucket of ''Series/KeepingUpAppearances''; and Wally Batty, who was married to the most MemeticBadass on the programme, the legendary battleaxe Nora Batty.

* Mrs. Loomis, the unseen wife of sex-starved Deputy Loomis in ''VideoGame/{{Harvester}}'', exaggerates this to a disturbing degree, beating him bloody with a broomstick if he ever catches him with dirty magazines (or hears about him even ''asking'' about them.) Like nearly everything else in the game, though, it's still played for ''very'' BlackComedy.

*** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' gives another angle to their relationship. When Goku wants to go off and train with Whis (for no particular reason other than that he wants to), Chichi is infuriated that he would spend so much time away from his family and does her best to stop him. He basically ignores her and goes anyway, at which point she simply smiles and says it was unavoidable, suggesting her behavior isn't necessarily an effort to absolutely control Goku so much as to temper his enthusiasm with some degree of familial responsibility.
