* This happens a ''lot'' in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''.
** For example, most of Ranma and Akane's fights are either Akane's fault (when she keeps jumping to negative conclusions about Ranma, or trying to feed him terrible cooking), or Ranma's fault (when he keeps insulting her). The problem is that because Akane is surrounded by family and friends that are close to her, and because Ranma's only close relation is his father (who is almost never on his side, anyway), Ranma's usually the only one being punished, while Akane gets away scot-free. This has served as FanficFuel for a ''lot'' of fanfics in which Ranma finally gets fed up with this situation, but in the actual anime/manga he seems to take it pretty well with only some token grumbling.
** Another example is the fights between Ranma and Ryoga. Ryoga has the advantage of sometimes posing as P-chan, Akane's favorite pet. So when Ranma and Ryoga get into disagreements, all Ryoga has to do is turn into P-chan, and Akane will ''always'' side against Ranma for "picking on a poor defenseless pig".


Added DiffLines:

** In fights between Ranma and Akane, nobody will take Ranma's side in any argument no matter what, with everybody siding with Akane no matter what.
** During fights between Ranma and Ryoga, Ryoga will use his curse to pose as P-chan, Akane's favorite pet. So when Ranma and Ryoga get into disagreements, all Ryoga has to do is turn into P-chan, and Akane will ''always'' side against Ranma for "picking on a poor defenseless pig".

** When Umbridge joins the staff in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' not only does she partake in choosing whom she feels like actually punishing she selects a group of students, seemingly all from Slytherin, who do the same, strongly favoring their own house.

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold!'': In the episode "Girl Trouble," Helga relentlessly torments Arnold throughout the episode, and eventually Arnold gets sick of it and throws paint on her in retaliation. Mr. Simmons does nothing about Helga's bullying, but punishes Arnold for dumping paint, vocally expressing his disappointment in him.

* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'': Inverted as a SpringtimeForHitler in the episode "Crime After Crime". The episode's B-plot has Frankie [[LethalChef cooking something disgusting]] for dinner, so Bloo causes trouble in an effort to get sent to his room without dinner. Unfortunately the episode's A-plot was Mr. Harriman acting hyper-paranoid over someone discovering his addiction to carrots, leading him to punish everyone else in the house for relatively minor infractions due to thinking they're "on to him" while completely ignoring or even ''congratulating'' Bloo.

I probably should never have been there anyway, and it served me right when the two alert police officers fired up their siren, pulled me over, and pointed out that my car's registration had expired. I had not realized this, and as you can imagine I felt like quite the renegade outlaw as one of the officers painstakingly wrote out my ticket, standing well to the side of the road so as to avoid getting hit by the steady stream of passing unlicensed and uninsured motorists driving their stolen cars with their left hands so that their right hands would be free to keep their pit bulls from spilling their cocaine all over their machine guns.\\

* This tends to happen with Rito ''oh so much'' in ''Manga/ToLoveRu'', especially with Yami. She is quick to beat the crap out of him and throw death threats whenever it [[AccidentalPervert looks like he does something perverted]], but when real perverts like Risa grope her purposely, she just meekly tells them to stop [[spoiler:(it's been suggested, and evidenced, that Yami is a ClosetPervert who ''enjoys'' female affection).]]
