!!Mixed Examples [[folder:Anime and Manga]] * In works by Creator/KunihikoIkuhara, several female characters [[http://whiningaboutyuri.tumblr.com/post/92532712333/making-people-hate-me-for-dissing-ikuhara-pt-3 have been punished with sexual abuse to one degree or another]] for their mistakes or bad behaviors, ''and'' said punishments have been dealed by people of either genders. In example: ** In ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', [[spoiler: RichBitch Nanami is assaulted by her brother Touga as a part of her BreakTheHaughty process]] and [[spoiler: Juri's "friend" Shiori is manipulated by her and Juri's old flame Ruka into a sexual relationship, then dumped in a very humiliating manner]] ** In ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum'', [[spoiler: StalkerWithACrush Ringo is nearly raped. ''Twice''. First by a man whom she drugged to have sex with, later by a woman who sees her as a ReplacementGoldfish for her dead sister.]] ** In ''Anime/YuriKumaArashi'', after a bout of inconsistent back-and-forthing over whether or not she wants to eat Kureha or not, Ginko only actually and finally manages to get over it after she gets raped and seduced into killing and eating by [[spoiler: Mitsuko]], which comes right after TheReveal that [[spoiler: Ginko had a hand in Sumika's death]].

* Played for laughs in ''Film/CarryOnCamping''. Married man Peter Potter spends the entire movie trying to get his wife to listen to him as they prepare to go on their holiday to the countryside, despite his hatred of the trip. [[spoiler:After getting drunk and sleeping with a young woman in the woods, he finally gets the courage to speak up more to his wife, and rapes her in their tent, which successfully turns her into a subordinate housewife.]]

* ''Literature/InterpreterOfMaladies'' has the story "The Treatment of Bibi Haldar". Bibi suffers from frequent seizures and illnesses, and while the townspeople try to provide for her and even throw out her relatives who abuse her, they don't enable her to provide for herself. It is only after she is [[spoiler: raped and impregnated that they give her the resources she needs to care for her children, and Bibi is able to overcome her illness to become successful. This, of course, is at the cost of her dignity]].

The female version is also very popular in FanFic, especially with the AlphaBitch of any show as the victim.

** The character of Beecher in season 1 of HBO's ''Series/{{Oz}}'' probably sums it up, as well as others that followed. The most direct approach occurred in later seasons with the character of Beecher's acquaintance Adam Guenzel and his friend, as their own crime was gang raping a stranger woman.

* ''Film/WeddingCrashers'' is about two friends who crash weddings and have sex with women they find at said weddings; theory being that watching a marriage makes women much easier targets than, say, in a bar (open bars help too). One of Vince Vaughn's conquests turns out to be a nutcase who won't let him go and does increasingly insane things to him. Keeping in line with the trope, he goes from being an unrepentant womanizer to [[spoiler:falling madly in love with her and marrying her by the film's end]]. * ''The Most Fertile Man In Ireland'': When the most fertile man in Ireland refuses to use his new-found ability, a woman whose husband is sterile and whose religious beliefs deny her artificial insemination, sneaks up to his room in the middle of the night and starts graphically raping him in his sleep. The incident is served only to make him realize he can't deny his potential. He decides to at least grant his consent from then on by charging money from the other willing local women.

* There was a ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' episode where ''The Rapeman'' manga series was brought up in a trial and was at one point considered as the cause of the defendant's deviant behavior. The defendant was a man arrested for a rape that was committed by his 13 year old son (not only was the man at work at the time, he had never even ''met'' the victim). The detective arrested the man due to the claim that he was raising his son in an "atmosphere that condoned rape". Not only was the man's possession of issues of Rapeman the ''only'' evidence for such a claim, but the fact that the detective didn't actually know what Rapeman was about (she admittedly didn't know Japanese, so she had to guess the premise (which she got wrong) from the images).

Examples Are Not General Keep it an example
* A very common occurrence both in 19th century underground erotica and in 20th century pulp fiction. In most cases the victim is a lesbian who is "cured" through being violently raped by the brave, brave hero.

* The term 'rape' is used casually in BDSM literature, such as Anne Rice's Beauty series and John Norman's World of Gor. Though they're not exclusively depicted as non-consensual sexual abuse (Norman in particular seems to write "rape" when he means "ravish"), such depictions are there, and in both cases is said to 'improve' the slave. In fact, the entire principle of slavery, humiliation, and sexual punishment in the Beauty series was to discipline and refine the ruling class before permitting them to rule. However, the BDSM community by and large takes consent ''extremely'' seriously. The looser Gorean views have led to many people disowning the group, if not the books, altogether.

* A ''fantastic'' example of this trope occurs in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Before Episode 22, and excluding fan-boy fetishes, Asuka Soryu is painted quite steadily as an AlphaBitch [[TheScrappy wannabe]]: her quirks, though potentially fun to watch, can also be quite frustrating - if not for the fans, then certainly for her co-stars - if not her co-stars in the anime, ''then those in the manga absolutely''. During Episode 22, Asuka's [[{{Narcissist}} person]][[ThePerfectionist ality]] [[{{Pride}} flaws]], her selfish desires for the future (or lack of them), ''[[RuleOfThree and]]'' [[{{UST}} hormonal frustration]] sprout through the ugliest potrayals of her character up to that point. Then, beginning from the final third of episode 22, an Angel [[MindRape psychologically rapes her]]. Though it isn't a game-changer for the series, the act is iconic - even if only regarding Asuka. The result of this trope's application in the work varies from how far from it and ahead through the mythos of Evangelion one decides to peer:

In return, they basically kidnap her at a dinner party, and hold here in their new mansion. Where she is seen to be repeatedly raped and made into a slave scrubbing floors. When she is released, she seems much more sympathetic, but Foggy divorces here later. Note: this storyline took place during the Frank Miller run.
