* Given that the series averts MenAreTheExpendableGender and is an example of GenderIsNoObject it's little surprise ''{{Drowtales}}'' features this, especially in the end of chapter chibi parodies, where female characters are just as ([[ImprobablyFemaleCast if not more]]) likely to be on the receiving end of slapstick violence as male characters.

** In the ''[[Series/SaturdayNightLive SNL Digital Short]]'' "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6vS99dEexI I Broke My Arm]]'', Creator/EmmaStone plays a schoolgirl who's broken her arm after slipping in a patch of grape jelly, and is rapping about it ("Hey everybody, did you hear the news? / I broke my arm! (''She broke her arm!'')"), delighted that she can get loads of attention and have everyone sign her cast. Unfortunately, while singing and dancing about it, she slips in the jelly for a second time and breaks her other arm. She gets a second cast, and starts rapping about that too ("Hey everybody, did you hear the news? / I broke ''both'' arms!") but then slips again and breaks her leg. She comes in again, rapping about her latest injury, but then slips in the jelly ''again'' and [[CrossesTheLinewTwice immediately breaks several more bones]] before finally entering in a wheelchair, only able to speak by means of a [[MachineMonotone computer]].

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DV6X7POhdoo This Toyota commercial]] shows a young husband and wife trying to kill each other (the commercial is banned in the United States btw) with cartoon-style traps (likely the reason anyone even greenlighted it). She's just as vulnerable to them as he is, and to drive the point home, it ends with her having taken the brunt of it.

* If you alter the trope slightly to Slapstick Knows No ''Species'', Disney's ''Disney/TheJungleBook'' has a surprising subversion in the case of Bagheera. Being a black panther, he's a cat in a jungle full of dogs, elephants, bears and monkeys. Of course, those four other kinds of animals are regular fodder for humor, but [[AnimalTropes cats are naturally refined and above that sort of thing, right]]? Especially because Bagheera speaks in that [[IAmVeryBritish dapper, butler-like accent]] that makes you feel guilty about even ''thinking'' of trying to embarrass him. Leave that to the Disney animators: they have him fall in a stream and hit his head on a log when he tries to surface; get a ''huge'' door slammed in his face, leaving him with a swollen purple eye; and yowl in agony when a boulder flattens his tail. Sure, all the other characters get their share of slapstick too, but Bagheera does seem to be humiliated more often than necessary.

* Chi-Chi in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', especially around Goku. Since she is not as strong as Goku yet [[MadeOfIron strong enough to take physical harm]]; she has been slapped by Goku through the side of their house, through several boulders and a tree, and when he has healed from his heart disease and she went out to greet him, he accidentally threw her high into the air.
* ''Manga/DoctorSlump'' has the various heroines and villainesses getting knocked around quite frequently. Even Slump's love interest, Midori, gets boulders dropped on her and temporarily loses a few teeth.
* The 1973 manga ''Manga/DororonEnmaKun'' placed the literal ice princess, Yukiko Hime, on the receiving end of a large amount of comical abuse from friends and foes alike. When a monster puts her into a deep sleep, Enma wastes no time attempting to wake her through outrageous beatings and whippings.

* ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'': Panty and Stocking go through lots of AmusingInjuries.
** A perfect example would be in the first part of Episode 3, when the wolf ghost [[BeTheBall compresses the both of them into a ball shape]] and throws them through a basketball hoop, and then the two are briefly seen SquashedFlat afterwards.
** Panty is hit by a barrage of different humiliating slapstick stunts at the beginning of Episode 13, all in a row, including struck by lightning (complete with XRaySparks) and left with AshFace.
* All the girls of ACROSS in ''Manga/ExcelSaga''. Excel and Elgala mostly get AmusingInjuries, while Hyatt just [[TheyKilledKennyAgain dies a lot]].
* ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'':
** Kiyone from ''Anime/TenchiUniverse'' endures constant humiliation due to being partnered with Mihoshi, who is the personification of ditz.
** Many female characters in this franchise are also qualified for this trope. Particularly Ryoko, Mihoshi and Sasami as Anime/PrettySammy.

* Literature Girl in ''Manga/DailyLivesOfHighSchoolBoys'' had one moment in "High School Boys and the Way You are", when her clumsiness caused a long string of EpicFail.
* Chi-Chi in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', especially around Goku. Since she is not as strong as Goku yet [[MadeOfIron strong enough to take physical harm]]; she has been slapped by Goku through the side of their house, through several boulders and a tree, and when he has healed from his heart disease and she went out to greet him, he accidentally threw her high into the air.

When a monster puts her into a deep sleep, Enma wastes no time attempting to wake her through outrageous beatings and whippings.
* Happens in ''Manga/DragonHalf'', where King Siva drops a huge weight ''on his own daughter Vina's head''. The scene is funny, but it also shows that the two of them are utterly [[EvilIsHammy horrible people]]. [[spoiler: Vina's [[HalfHumanHybrid half-slime]], so she survives because she's NighInvulnerable. She then attempts to smother her father once she escapes.]]
* All the girls of ACROSS in ''Manga/ExcelSaga''. Excel and Elgala mostly get AmusingInjuries, while Hyatt just [[TheyKilledKennyAgain dies a lot]].
* The ''Manga/FairyTail'' anime/manga doles out some humorous abuse to protagonist Lucy Heartfilia, including a pillow to the face that sends her through a door and into a rock outside, and various evil women like Angel, whose post-battle struggle for survival is a bit of a joke.
** In [[EstablishingSeriesMoment the second episode]], resident NiceGirl Mirajane is sent sprawling by her brother, [[GrievousHarmWithABody who'd been sent flying from the]] BigBallOfViolence, and she cheerfully continues talking to Lucy about how much fun the brawls are before passing out.
* In ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'', [[CoolOldLady Taiitsukun]] is the Goddess ([[PhysicalGod in a sense]]) of the trope. On one hand she's among those who send the Nyan-Nyans (who have the looks of little girls) [[ATwinkleInTheSky flying]] [[ButtMonkey when they screw up]], and has hit [[TheDitz Miaka]] (a 15-year-old girl) [[DopeSlap upside the head]] at least once. On the other, it's not like she's less harsh to guys: she's also seen beating up the 17-year-old boy Tamahome once or twice.
* In ''Anime/GenjiTsuushinAgedama'', a 1991 parody anime, villainess Kuki Rei frequently catches fire, falls down pits and gets caught in explosions.



* Shiina from ''[[LightNovel/NogizakaHarukaNoHimitsu The Secret of Haruka Nogizaka]]'' has a tendency to clumsily stumble into {{Fanservice}}y Panty Shot and NotWhatItLooksLike situations that are played for laughs at her expense.

to:

* Shiina ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' does not spare the female characters. Kagura is actually proud to be the first Jump heroine to vomit in an anime.
* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' has Nyarko and Cuuko (and more rarely [[AdorablyPrecociousChild Hasta]]) subject to [[{{Tsundere}} Mahiro]]'s punches and {{fork|Fencing}}s whenever they get too annoying. It helps that they're Lovecraftian gods and can take the punishment, but more than a few fans have expressed displeasure with Mahiro, feeling that he comes off as a short-tempered {{Jerkass}}. Worth noting, the "slapstick" label only really applies to the two TV series; in the original light novels (and the ''Nyaruani'' comedy shorts) Mahiro's forks produce fountains of HighPressureBlood.

* In ''Anime/{{Yatterman}}'', villainess Doronjo is punished for her failure in just about every episode. Punishments range from siccing a horde of pinching crabs on her to blasting her with meteorites and nuclear missiles. The 2008 remake keeps this tradition alive.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' loves this trope.
** Jessie, amongst other female villains (and even protagonists), gets attacked by Pokémon on a regular basis.
** Misty gets this from time to time. One noticeable example was in "Pokémon Fashion Flash." In the course of that episode, Misty got burned in the face by Vulpix's fire breath, got burned by Vulpix's ''huge Fire Spin'' at the climax, {{A|rsonMurderAndJaywalking}}ND got a ridiculous face paint makeover that looked so bad, it had Ash and Brock (''especially'' [[VitriolicBestBuds Ash]]) laughing themselves half to death when they saw it!

* ''Manga/MonthlyGirlsNozakiKun'' is basically taking a lot of common shoujo character types and genderflipping them. In particular, in the supporting cast there's the princelike girl Kashima and the short, aggressive Hori. Kashima is tremendously irresponsible and tends to get kicked, thrown or otherwise physically punished in pretty much exactly the same way the tiny tsundere character would beat up her love interest in many other series.

* Kelly from ''Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'' is most definitely the series' human [[TheChewToy Chew Toy]]. She's not stupid or clumsy, just ''incredibly'' unlucky. Usually the funny stuff happens to her property rather than her, but she's still been the victim of the occasional damage. She is almost always caught up in the conflicts of the (mostly male) Transformers. Not even running to the middle of the world's most remote desert moves her out of the way of the conflict!!
* Hotori from ''Manga/SoredemoMachiWaMawatteiru'' falls victim a large number of unfortunate mishaps. A little sneeze sends her face-first into a cup of coffee, and she trips while trying to clean it up, getting a bucket stuck on her head.
* With its all-female cast, it's no surprise that this trope should apply to ''Manga/StrawberryMarshmallow''. This is the main reason why the other girls keep [[AttentionWhore Miu]] [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Matsuoka]] around; however, no-one in the show is immune to the slapstick.
* Also happens with frequency in ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'', usually featuring Ryuunosuke, Benten, Ran and the Spice Girls (No, not THOSE Music/SpiceGirls).
* One particularly well-done male-to-female example is in ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'' when Ryuuji accidentally hits Taiga in the head with a broom. ''It's hilarious''.

The scene is funny, but it also shows tendency to clumsily stumble into {{Fanservice}}y Panty Shot and NotWhatItLooksLike situations that the two of them are utterly [[EvilIsHammy horrible people]]. [[spoiler: Vina's [[HalfHumanHybrid half-slime]], so she survives because she's NighInvulnerable. She then attempts to smother her father once she escapes.]]
* The unlucky ChineseGirl protagonist of the weird anime ''Anime/IppatsuKikimusume'' gets involved in a whole lot of this.
* ''Anime/AngelBeats'' has Hinata's assaults on Yui be
played just as much for laughs as hers at her expense.
* ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'': Panty and Stocking go through lots of AmusingInjuries.
** A perfect example would be in the first part of Episode 3, when the wolf ghost [[BeTheBall compresses the both of them into a ball shape]] and throws them through a basketball hoop, and then the two are briefly seen SquashedFlat afterwards.
** Panty is hit by a barrage of different humiliating slapstick stunts at the beginning of Episode 13, all in a row, including struck by lightning (complete with XRaySparks) and left with AshFace.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' loves this trope.
** Jessie, amongst other female villains (and even protagonists), gets attacked by Pokémon
on him.
* Sanae
a regular basis.
** Misty gets this
from ''Manga/ShinryakuIkaMusume'' gets bloody beaten up time to time. One noticeable example was in "Pokémon Fashion Flash." In the course of that episode, Misty got burned in the face by Vulpix's fire breath, got burned by Vulpix's ''huge Fire Spin'' at the climax, {{A|rsonMurderAndJaywalking}}ND got a ridiculous face paint makeover that looked so bad, it had Ash and Brock (''especially'' [[VitriolicBestBuds Ash]]) laughing themselves half to death when they saw it!
** Zigzagged with May. Like the other female companions, she suffers occasional AmusingInjuries. However
a lot by of her DamselInDistress moments seem to lampshade her lack of ToonPhysics. Her almost falling down the eponymus protagonist, exact same cliff Team Rocket passively shot down Wile E Coyote-style was completely PlayedForDrama.
* This is very prevalent in the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' franchise. [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Kanade Minamino]]
and she [[TooKinkyToTorture enjoys it]].[[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Miyuki Hoshizora]] are the two most notable examples, but [[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Love Momozono]] and [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Nozomi Yumehara]] have their fair share of slapstick too.
* Happens a lot in ''Manga/RockLeesSpringtimeOfYouth'', there was actually two chapters dedicated to this trope.



* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', main female protagonist Asuna regularly takes the chance to smack about one or two other girls in their sillier or more lecherous moments, but none so much as ElegantGothicLolita Vampire Evangeline. Although given her insane skill in martial arts, she probably ''lets'' it happen. This being ''Negima'', it's promptly lampshaded:
-->'''[[RobotMaid Chachamaru:]]''' Asuna-san's the only person who's ever been able to engage with Master in physical slapstick.
* Literature Girl in ''Manga/DailyLivesOfHighSchoolBoys'' had one moment in "High School Boys and the Way You are", when her clumsiness caused a long string of EpicFail.
* The premise of ''Manga/KillMeBaby'' lies in Yasuna being physically abused by Sonya at least OncePerEpisode.
* Happens a lot in ''Manga/RockLeesSpringtimeOfYouth'', there was actually two chapters dedicated to this trope.
* Ritsu in ''Manga/KOn'' is a frequent target for Mio's aggression, though some of the other girls have suffered a few bashes on the head (also see CranialEruption). No serious injury has yet occurred from this.
* ''Amazing Nurse Nanako'': all kinds of stuff happen to the eponymous character, [[WouldHitAGirl not the least of which]] [[MadScientist Dr.]] [[{{Bishonen}} Kyouji]] [[BadBoss Ogami]] is directly and indirectly responsible for.
* Happens occasionally to girls in ''Manga/{{Needless}}'', but slapstick happens more frequently to the males.



* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' has Nyarko and Cuuko (and more rarely [[AdorablyPrecociousChild Hasta]]) subject to [[{{Tsundere}} Mahiro]]'s punches and {{fork|Fencing}}s whenever they get too annoying. It helps that they're Lovecraftian gods and can take the punishment, but more than a few fans have expressed displeasure with Mahiro, feeling that he comes off as a short-tempered {{Jerkass}}. Worth noting, the "slapstick" label only really applies to the two TV series; in the original light novels (and the ''Nyaruani'' comedy shorts) Mahiro's forks produce fountains of HighPressureBlood.
* Happens a lot in ''Manga/{{Nichijou}}'', whose protagonist Yuuko ends up on the recieving end of most of the slapstick-related gags in the series. It knows no species either, as the other main victim is Sakamoto the cat.
* This is very prevalent in the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' franchise. [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Kanade Minamino]] and [[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Miyuki Hoshizora]] are the two most notable examples, but [[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Love Momozono]] and [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Nozomi Yumehara]] have their fair share of slapstick too.
* In ''Anime/TheGirlWhoLeaptThroughTime'' protagonist Makoto gets hurt a lot crashing into things due to her clumsy landings doing time leaps. Usually it is PlayedForLaughs, except in one particular occasion when she is badly battered near the climax of the movie.
* While Kero and Sayoran are the true {{Butt Monkey}}s of ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'', Sakura herself is frequently victim to cutesy slapstick.
* During the first episode of ''Anime/LuckyStar'', Miyuki describes some of the things that happen to her for spacing out, such as tripping on her own feet or cutting herself while slicing vegetables, things which Konata then describes as "moe points". The very next scene has her walking into a business sign while pacing back and forth.
** During episode 6, Konata lays a bar of soap down for Miyuki to slip on while they are bathing at the sentou. It works, but she [[LaserGuidedKarma misses it while teasing Kagami]].
** There are also times when Nanako gives Konata a CranialEruption for sleeping in class. In the manga, this extends to other students she has after Konata and her friends graduate. Including the innocent and physically frail Yutaka.
** Minami nailing Hiyori in dodgeball, anyone?
** A late scene in episode 11 is all about the main four (and Soujiro) receiving electrical shocks from a doorknob.
* ''Anime/KillLaKill'' is full of this, with [[TheFakeCutie Nui]], probably the most girly character, getting the worst of it.
* In ''Manga/AhoGirl'', Yoshiko's stupidity causes her to frequently be the victim of retaliatory {{Dope Slap}}s and the like. In one case male lead Akkun hits her with an OffhandBackhand when ''she'' calls ''him'' the idiot.
* In ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'', [[CoolOldLady Taiitsukun]] is the Goddess ([[PhysicalGod in a sense]]) of the trope. On one hand she's among those who send the Nyan-Nyans (who have the looks of little girls) [[ATwinkleInTheSky flying]] [[ButtMonkey when they screw up]], and has hit [[TheDitz Miaka]] (a 15-year-old girl) [[DopeSlap upside the head]] at least once. On the other, it's not like she's less harsh to guys: she's also seen beating up the 17-year-old boy Tamahome once or twice.
* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' does not spare the female characters. Kagura is actually proud to be the first Jump heroine to vomit in an anime.
* ''Manga/MonthlyGirlsNozakiKun'' is basically taking a lot of common shoujo character types and genderflipping them. In particular, in the supporting cast there's the princelike girl Kashima and the short, aggressive Hori. Kashima is tremendously irresponsible and tends to get kicked, thrown or otherwise physically punished in pretty much exactly the same way the tiny tsundere character would beat up her love interest in many other series.

* ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' often subjects its female characters
to [[{{Tsundere}} Mahiro]]'s punches and {{fork|Fencing}}s whenever they get too annoying. It helps slapstick, every semi-important woman that they're Lovecraftian gods and can take the punishment, but more than a few fans have expressed displeasure with Mahiro, feeling that he comes off as a short-tempered {{Jerkass}}. Worth noting, the "slapstick" label only really applies to the two TV series; appears in the original light novels (and show, suffers it sooner or later (even [[TheMedic Sylphiel]] was blasted by Lina in one occasion). [[CuteClumsyGirl Amelia]] is a notable one.
* Hotori from ''Manga/SoredemoMachiWaMawatteiru'' falls victim a large number of unfortunate mishaps. A little sneeze sends her face-first into a cup of coffee, and she trips while trying to clean it up, getting a bucket stuck on her head.
* With its all-female cast, it's no surprise that this trope should apply to ''Manga/StrawberryMarshmallow''. This is
the ''Nyaruani'' comedy shorts) Mahiro's forks produce fountains of HighPressureBlood.

* During ''Anime/TanteiOperaMilkyHolmes'', absurd as it is, heaps slapstick on everybody, with the first episode of ''Anime/LuckyStar'', Miyuki describes some of heroines getting it the things that happen hardest, though G4 (particularly Kokoro) get theirs too.
* ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'':
** Kiyone from ''Anime/TenchiUniverse'' endures constant humiliation due
to her for spacing out, such as tripping on her own feet or cutting herself while slicing vegetables, things which Konata then describes as "moe points". The very next scene has her walking into a business sign while pacing back and forth.

personification of ditz.
** There Many female characters in this franchise are also times qualified for this trope. Particularly Ryoko, Mihoshi and Sasami as Anime/PrettySammy.
* One particularly well-done male-to-female example is in ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}''
when Nanako gives Konata a CranialEruption for sleeping Ryuuji accidentally hits Taiga in class. In the manga, this extends to other students she has after Konata and her friends graduate. Including the innocent and physically frail Yutaka.

* Kelly
from a doorknob.
* ''Anime/KillLaKill''
''Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'' is full of this, with [[TheFakeCutie Nui]], probably the most girly character, getting definitely the worst of it.
* In ''Manga/AhoGirl'', Yoshiko's stupidity causes
series' human [[TheChewToy Chew Toy]]. She's not stupid or clumsy, just ''incredibly'' unlucky. Usually the funny stuff happens to her to frequently be property rather than her, but she's still been the victim of retaliatory {{Dope Slap}}s the occasional damage. She is almost always caught up in the conflicts of the (mostly male) Transformers. Not even running to the middle of the world's most remote desert moves her out of the way of the conflict!!
* Also happens with frequency in ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'', usually featuring Ryuunosuke, Benten, Ran
and the like. Spice Girls (No, not THOSE Music/SpiceGirls).
*
In one case male lead Akkun hits ''Anime/{{Yatterman}}'', villainess Doronjo is punished for her failure, with her team, in just about every episode. Punishments range from siccing a horde of pinching crabs on her to blasting her with an OffhandBackhand when ''she'' calls ''him'' meteorites and nuclear missiles. The 2008 remake keeps this tradition alive.
** This apply to all
the idiot.
* In ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'', [[CoolOldLady Taiitsukun]] is the Goddess ([[PhysicalGod in a sense]])
villainess leader of the trope. On one hand she's among those who send the Nyan-Nyans (who have the looks of little girls) [[ATwinkleInTheSky flying]] [[ButtMonkey when they screw up]], and has hit [[TheDitz Miaka]] (a 15-year-old girl) [[DopeSlap upside the head]] at least once.

* From the look of the ''Film/{{Ghostbusters|2016}}'' reboot trailer, it looks like these female Ghostbusters are going to be on the receiving end of some slapstick.
