* Though it's just flavor text, in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', if the Hulk and She-Hulk are facing each other, the Hulk will grouse that he doesn't like hitting girls.

** Jakotsu, the flamboyantly gay villain with a crush on Inuyasha, was originally supposed to be female. The author changed him to male because she didn't want Inuyasha to kill a girl.

** Inuyasha generally won't kill human looking girls, with Kagome usually doing the deed.
** [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman Monstrous looking females]] like a Centipede woman, or floating heads seem fair game for Inuyasha to kill.

** In a battle [[CharacterizationMarchesOn early on]], Inuyasha cuts off the hand of the {{Youkai}}, Yura of the Hair, who looks like a young
girl. Though its still Kagome that actually kills her.



* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' has the eponymous character, whom {{Fanon}} usually considers averse to fighting women no matter what the cause is. In canon, not so much; while there are one or two times he expresses the sentiment that he doesn't particularly like to fight girls, it mostly seems to be fans reading too much into the fact that Akane and his [[LoveDodecahedron unwanted girlfriends]] can all give him the "total beatdown" version of the ArmorPiercingSlap despite being inferior martial artists. [[OvershadowedByAwesome Compared]] to [[CantCatchUp him]]. Perhaps fuelled by hearsay about a comment Ranma makes to Akane the first time in the series that the two of them are sentenced to StandingInTheHall, where he mildly suggests that the reason Akane always beats Kuno is because when a guy is fighting a girl he likes, he might decide to let her win. The reality is that Ranma is [[WouldHitAGirl quite willing to fight women]], will leap into battle with them without thinking, and only fights them on a relatively "low level" because:
## They are invariably less powerful than he is (barring Cologne, Kiima, Herb before TheReveal, and [[MonsterOfTheWeek Rouge]] in her [[PhysicalGod Ashura form]]).
## He usually has to face them in goofy MartialArtsAndCrafts challenges where he can't use his best attacks.
## He normally only fights at his best and/or most brutal when against the nastiest or most annoying opponents, such as Happosai and Herb.
## There is a shown cultural stigma against fighting girls, which he knows about (shown in multiple arcs, such as the arc with Miss Hinako).

* ''VideoGame/RideToHellRetribution'' Jake kills tons of males throughout the game, but never at any point fights a girl. Brandy, the lone female among the villains, simply disappears after a certain point [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse without any explanation]], and thus is never [[TheUnfought fought]].

*Well, they wouldn't hit ''anyone'', mostly, being [[ActualPacifist Actual Pacifists]], but the four definitely have a few pertinent moments in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'':
**When Paul gets hammered a couple of times by the [[SuperStrength superstrong]] warrior woman Lielya, he refuses to even try to hit her back, though this is partially because he's afraid of what he might do to ''anyone'' he hits.
**When Ringo and John are divesting the mine-robbers of their stuff, they don't take anything from the one woman in the group, in part out of “gallantry to a pretty woman.”

* On the other hand, in recent years it became common for some male wrestlers to rough up obviously weak or non-wrestler women just to show what Bastards, {{Badass}}es and/or {{Jerkass}}es they are. Usually the assailant will be a heel. Once, just to be a dick, Armando Alejandro Estrada got his wrestler Wrestling/{{Umaga}} booked to fight the tiny Wrestling/MariaKanellis. [[CaptainObvious (Maria lost.)]] Then Charlie Haas and Viscera got into a feud over who would date ring announcer Lilian Garcia: after Haas raked Viscera's eyes, the giant, temporarily blinded, grabbed Garcia apparently mistaking her for Haas (absurd, Haas weighed twice as much) and Samoan Dropped her, nearly breaking her neck. At first Viscera appeared to feel chagrin of the MyGodWhatHaveIDone variety, but then both he and Haas laughed and explained that they'd set it up as a "hilarious" joke at Garcia's expense. But one incident with particularly UnfortunateImplications had Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin (a face at the time) hit Wrestling/StacyKeibler (also a face) in a skit that was supposed to be ''funny''. Austin kicked Keibler in the stomach and then knocked her out [[DisproportionateRetribution because she had declined his offer of a beer!]] [[DudeNotFunny (There are some things you just can't do, and beating up a woman half your size for comedy is one of them.)]] Keibler later was the victim of a similar assault (an RKO) from then-boyfriend Wrestling/RandyOrton, but that was meant to show that the face Orton was turning heel.

* In ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'', this is one of the [[PetTheDog nicer traits]] of [[BadAss Ragna]] [[OneManArmy the]] [[AntiHero Blood]][[JerkWithAHeartOfGold edge]]. Granted, he won't hold back if a woman attacks him or tries to apprehend him, but he states several times that he doesn't enjoy fighting them, and when he does defeat them, he is usually quite sympathetic and regretful.

* The Franchise/JamesBond movies provide a meta-example of this trope. It's not that he's unwilling to kill a woman, but the movies tend to be written in such a way to avoid putting him in that position in the first place. The majority of Bond's female villains are killed by some manner that doesn't directly and solely involve him, such as [[spoiler: [[Film/Thunderball dancing with Fiona Vulpe]] and using her as a bulletshield when her henchmen try to shoot him, or [[Film/AViewToAKill May Day]]'s HeroicSacrifice following her HeelFaceTurn]]. It wasn't until ''Film/{{GoldenEye}}'' in 1995 that Bond killed a woman in a fight to the death, which he has only done in one other movie since.

* In the 70's, ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' fought against the "Lion king", an African deity who wanted to capture the Comicbook/BlackPanther. He defeated all the other Avengers, but refused to fight against the Comicbook/BlackWidow: instead, he summoned a pair of common lions to deal with her. The Widow pointed that she was glad that she did not belong to the tribe of such a sexist god.
