* Though it's only a part of his backstory as a [[ChildSoldiers Child Soldier]], Guts of ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' had to deal with rape as a kid at the hands of one of the soldiers of his adoptive father's band, which among other things informs his [[HatesBeingTouched reluctance to be touched by others]].

* Characters with these backstories feature in just about all the works in the {{Nasuverse}}. [[spoiler:Kohaku]] (''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}''), [[spoiler:Sakura Matou]] (''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''), and [[spoiler:Fujino Asagami]] (''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai''). Yes, they all went crazy, really crazy.
* In ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' [[spoiler:three boys ''[[AttemptedRape attempted]]'' to rape [[TheCutie Rena Ryuugu]], who still went under the name [[ClearMyName Reina]], at her old school. These are the same boys she beat with a [[BatterUp bat]] when she was at a [[BreakTheCutie certain level]] of [[HatePlague Hinamizawa Syndrome]]]].

* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', [[spoiler:Beatrice Ushiromiya]] unfortunately grew up to look identical to her deceased mother, leading her father [[spoiler:Kinzō]] to lose it and eventually rape her. [[spoiler:The result is the third Beatrice. When learning how [[AmbiguousGender (s)he]] was born, (s)he doesn't take it well.]]

* In Hobbit fanfic [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/4661757 The Monstrous Company of Thorin Oakenshield]] this is the backstory of all married characters, and Thorin. As any TerryPratchatt fan can easily deduce from the title, the whole company (except Bilbo and Gandalf) is actually female. This backstory is the reason why they want to reconquer Erebor; they want a place to live in peace. While others seem to cope relatively well with the (marital) rape, Thorin, having been raped out of wedlock, is so traumatized she becomes insane ... just like in the original, but for very different reasons.

* In [[Literature/BooksOfTheRaksura]], the main character, Moon, a Raksura, never saw another member of his species and didn't even know how they were called or if he was the only one left. Moon was desperately trying to find any signs, anything about his race, until he found a city attacked by the Fell, a race of vicious flying predators who eat intelligent beings. There, a Fell ruler (always male gender) called Liheas tried to brainwash him into thinking he was Fell too, and then raped him, after which Moon realized he was not one of them and broke the ruler's neck while the ruler was sleeping, then set the room on fire and escaped. Because of this traumatic event, he stopped all attempts to ever try to find his race, didn't care anymore about himself for a long time, and became cynical, wary and distrustful of others, especially of the Fell and even more of the Raksura.

* Shows up in many [[note]] Well, as many as the miniscule size of this fandom allows, anyway...[[/note]] ''Anime/HeatGuyJ'' fanfics involving Clair, who was known to have been physically and emotionally abused by his father, so it's pretty much {{Fanon}} that [[ParentalIncest sexual abuse happened, too]]. [[note]] It should be said [[TruthInTelevision that]] many children who are being physically abused are also being sexually abused, though this is not guaranteed. [[/note]] One that comes to mind is called ''In a Different Light'', and takes this UpToEleven: not only does it have Clair being sexually abused by his father, but mentions that [[CompleteMonster Lorenzo]] actually paid some college boys to gang-rape Clair at school and made millions promising him as a SexSlave to ''multiple'' men before being [[spoiler: true to {{Canon}}, killed by Clair.]]

* In ''Literature/TheRedTent'', it's mentioned that Laban groped Leah and Zilpah when they were young, but before things could escalate further (and before he could hurt Rachel and Bilhah), Leah told her mother Adah, who [[MamaBear gave Laban ''quite'' a beating.]] He "made amends" by offering sacrifices, buying gold bangles for all the girls, and setting up a brand-new statue of The Goddess. For her part, Leah doesn't let it bother her or sully her views on men in general, but Zilpah DoesNotLikeMen at all, and this ''could'' be a major reason why. Also, the gold bangles that are among the trinkets used to [[spoiler: buy Ruti back from slave-traders Laban has gambled her away to]] are implied to be Zilpah's from the aftermath of that incident, that she buried rather than chose to wear.
** Later, Laban's second wife Ruti (who is roughly the same age as his daughters) drinks an abortifacient herbal concoction, so that Laban won't have any more sons she feels he doesn't deserve the honor of, or any daughters that he'd molest. When Ruti asks Rachel to help her abort, she threatens to kill the child anyway after it's born. The other women of the camp all support Ruti's choice, on the grounds that ''they'' don't care much for Laban or [[DomesticAbuse the way he treats her]], either.
