* ''ComicBook/RedSonja'': After becoming [[TheHighQueen Queen of Songaria]], Sonja (a [[RapeAsBackstory rape survivor]] herself) expressly forbids her soldiers from raping and is throughly displeased after hearing they tried to do that to one of [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes her enemies' little sister]]. Due to the men who sought to rape the girl being [[BigBrotherInstinct killed by her big brother]], she doesn't punish the others outright, but forbids them from laying a finger on her and promises a severe punishment if they try it again with anyone.

* In an episode of the French comedy show ''Series/{{Kaamelott}}'', the daughter of a Celt chieftain tells KingArthur--who just conquered her village--that according to Celtic law he must now rape her to confirm his victory. [[ArentYouGoingToRavishMe She seems utterly disappointed when he refuses.]]

** This isn't the only time Fett has acted this way. ''Usually'', he isn't a cruel man; he's just completely uncaring of whoever he's hired to apprehend. (And there was no real profit in hurting Leia, especially since she was already a prisoner.) Later ExpandedUniverse stories turn him into an already-married man (and father) who is completely loyal to his (estranged) wife (this [[CanonDiscontinuity contradicts earlier text]] which states he's never even ''held'' a woman, let alone had sex with one).

[[note]] Turns into FridgeBrilliance with what is established later about Mandalorian culture. They're ''fanatically'' [[FamilyValuesVillain family-oriented]], to the point where one of their nastiest insults translates to "unfit parent." If a Mando man rapes a woman, there's a chance he could father a child that he neglects to raise, which is unforgivable by their honor code. [[/note]]

* During his days in Vietnam, [[Comicbook/ThePunisher Frank Castle]] took a very dim view of any of his men raping enemy women. In one major instance during ''Born'' miniseries from [[Comicbook/ThePunisherMAX the MAX imprint]], he put a bullet into the head of the VC sniper that one of his men was raping, telling him, "No ''rape''. We're here to ''kill'' the enemy." Said rapist would ultimately get drowned under Castle's boot as punishment.

* Used in Juliet Marillier's ''Literature/BrideiChronicles'' to highlight the virtues of the title character. He goes ballistic when he catches men from his own army about to rape captive women -- despite the fact that a Pict in the 6th century probably wouldn't have such respect for women's rights.

This actually makes perfect sense given that Bridei was raised by a druid to have great respect for the goddess; his childhood was extremely sheltered; he lives in a matrilineal society; and he has a younger foster-sister whom he adores and who is about the same age as the girl about to be raped. Oh, and his best friend is involved.

->''That much, at least, his wife and daughters had been spared. Spared, because by good fortune their own house had been seized by Rajputs during the sack, not Ye-tai or common soldiers. A Rajput cavalry troop, commanded by a young Rajput lord. A cold man, that lord; arrogant and haughty as only a Rajput kshatriya could be. The Rajputs had stripped their home of everything of value, down to the linen. Had then eaten all the food, and drank all the wine. But when the inevitable time came, and the cavalrymen began eyeing their captured women, the Rajput officer had simply said: "No."''

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': {{Deconstructed}} with Daenerys. She tries to save the women of a defeated tribe from rape. Later one of those women gives Daenerys a WhatTheHellHero speech for seeing herself as a hero for "saving" her when she had already lost everything and everyone she cared about at the hands of Daenerys' husband.

* Played with several times in ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'': while being the most iconic villains of the show, Shin and Raoh are also chivalrous to a fault and try to win Yuria's affection without touching her. Another villain, Yuda, keeps a harem of slave girls but does not rape any, although [[TransparentCloset his case is special]]. On the good guys' side, Yuuda is a handsome, lecherous MagnificentBastard who frequently raids slave caravans to take the girls to his pleasure palace... except if they ask to go home, in which case he will even give them food for the trip.

** Even the [[spoiler:anti]]villainous Barbossa abides by this... up to a point. When Elizabeth rejects his NoMrBondIExpectYouToDine proposal, he says that the alternative is to dine with the crew, and without the dress he was offering her.
