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 StartXToStopX problem 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 problem of "NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished." The Wife Basher Basher 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.

* The Flash game ''VideoGame/AnakshaFemaleAssassin'' has this as the title character's original motivation for picking up her rifle. Although in this case it's less WifeBasherBasher and more [[BoomHeadshot Wife Basher Head Shooter]].

* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' had a story arc featuring the [=VespAvenger=], a woman who rode around on a Vespa scooter beating up men who were abusive to their girlfriends. The characters [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=743 try to convince her to stop]] by bringing up DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale, asking her if she'd be horrified by the thought of a man who rode around on a Harley beating up women who were abusive to their boyfriends. However, the [=VespAvenger=] says that [[BattleCouple he sounds like her ideal guy]], and that she would want his phone number.

* In the Literature/SherlockHolmes story "The Adventure of The Abbey Grange", Holmes deduces who killed Lord Brackenstall, and provides a general hint to the police (in the person of Inspector Hopkins) about the killer, but does no more, because the man who killed Brackenstall did so because Lord B. was physically and emotionally abusive to Mary, Lady Brackenstall, who the man was in love with. Holmes tells the man that he will not reveal the truth to the police unless they arrest someone else for the crime, and that he is free to go and that he can come back to Mary in a year if he still desires to do so.

* 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.
