* In RobertAHeinlein's ''Literature/TheMoonIsAHarshMistress'', the narrator proudly declares that on the Moon, attacking a woman is a literal death sentence, as any male in the area will gladly kill you in the most painful way he can think of. The Earther Stuart Renè [=LaJoie=] nearly gets killed because his Earth-style flirt was too aggressive for the Moon (he survives because the boys who caught him decided to give him a trial, and the protagonist, acting as a judge, realizes he was just ignorant. Stuart learned his lesson well), while the Moon revolution is triggered by Earth Peace Dragoons raping and killing a woman and their boss preventing the chief of the guards from having them hanged.

* LovableSexManiac to the extreme, Issei Hyoudou of ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' never makes his obsession for boobs a secret, but thankfully he's also a NiceGuy and treats girls properly when he needs too. That said, it's always a bad idea to upset or abuse women in his presence. [[spoiler:Raiser, Diodora, and Shalba all find out the hard way.]]

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' fics of Creator/AAPessimal, the fact that women are now training and graduating as Assassins is changing the Guild. The first four official female graduates - and one in particular - have a compact to pursue something called Ethical Assassination. They will still respect the Guild credo of not especially caring about the reason for inhuming a client so long as the money's right. But if their own informal investigations reveal that the client is culpable of wife-beating, rape, child molestation or violence against women. Well, this may not be the ''official'' reason for the contract. It simply adds a degree of job satisfaction and a sensation of the world suddenly being a slightly cleaner place. As two Lady Assassins called "The Marriage Guidance Counsellors" [[note]]they provide terminal third-party guidance for troubled marriages[[/note]]might quietly tell you. And those four Lady Assassins, along with other later-arriving mature entrants, are now teachers at the School providing pastoral care to girl students.

* In ''Series/{{Grimm}}'', Juliette's college roommate Alicia runs away from her abusive husband. Nick is supportive, even when he finds out that Alicia is a Fuchsbau (a fox-like [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual Wesen]]). The viewers also find out that her husband Joe is a Klaustreich (a cat-like Wesen who are known to be jerks). At the end of the episode, Joe breaks into Nick and Juliette's place and attacks the women. To everyone's surprise, it's Juliette who turns out to fit this trope, beating the crap out of the guy even after he goes [[GameFace full woge]] on her. Only after he's down does Nick come in with his gun, scaring Joe with the realization that Nick is a [[TheHunter Grimm]], whereas before he didn't care that Nick was a cop. Presumably, just the threat of Alicia's best friend living with a Grimm is enough to keep Joe away from her.

Nevertheless; friends of this normally gentle person would find these [[BewareTheNiceOnes righteous outbursts]] quite disconcerting, if not downright chilling to witness. Not to mention the BrokenAesop of solving violence with more violence, although this one only gets invoked if a child is present nearby, to provoke a HeWhoFightsMonsters revelation from the hero temporarily. Occasionally, this can backfire against the WifeBasherBasher himself in order to present another BrokenAesop of "NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished." The WifeBasherBasher may also occasionally lash out at someone who's completely innocent because of an AbuseMistake and then learn AnAesop about finding out the entire story before going ballistic.

* Exploited in the Literature/HerculePoirot story "The Big Four". Hastings gets himself hired as secretary to one of the Four, alongside a young woman with auburn hair. One day she mentions to Hastings that their employer was in an unbelievably foul mood and nearly struck her just because she'd opened a letter with the [[ArcNumber number 4]] on it. [[QuintessentialBritishGentleman Hastings, full of righteous indignation, is about to go punch the cad]] when he regains control of himself and sends the news to Poirot. Naturally, it was all a setup, the Four had gotten Hastings' chivalrous personality and even his favorite hair color to ensure they could get him to reveal himself.

* In ''Film/{{Tank}}'', Command Sergeant Major Zach Carey was visiting the base hospital, where he discovers a woman is being treated for bruises which are clearly the result of her husband beating her. He looks up who she is, and has her husband -- another Soldier -- called in to his office, where he sees him privately with the door closed. He politely tells the Soldier that he needs to get counseling, that he can't be assaulting his wife, and that if he gets counseling it will be a private affair and it won't show on his record. He says that if the guy has unresolved anger issues, he'd be happy to go in the ring with him and fight him. The guy blows him off by saying it's his business, and gets up to leave. Zack comes around to the front of his desk, and [[TranquilFury without even raising his voice]], proceeds to chew him out, [[UnstoppableRage clearly angry]]. "Listen, I'm going to watch that hospital, and if your wife or your kid comes in there again because you hit either of them, I will come after you. The stockade won't mean shit to me. My pension won't mean shit to me. I swear to God that I will destroy you in place. Now you will get counseling, that's an order. Dismissed."
