* ''Series/WonderWoman'': ExecutiveMeddling caused a strange occurrence of the trope in a show where a stunningly gorgeous woman is also by far the best fighter (every episode) and [[SuperStrength stronger than elephants and tanks]] ("Baroness Von Gunther" and "Anschluss 77", respectively). The producers in [[TheSeventies the middle 1970's]] were worried about the visual of a woman being punched by a man on prime time television. Accordingly, they made Wonder Woman so strong and so overwhelming that her opponents could rarely even swing - let alone hit her - before she overpowered them.

** Sanji chivalrously refuses to fight women, or in one case Mr. 2 Bon Clay taking the form of a woman (Nami) [[note]] although this case is slightly justified since Nami is his Kryptonite even outside battle [[/note]] even if it means his death. A fan once asked the author to expand on the scene where Sanji is beaten because he can't hurt a female assassin. Oda admitted that he didn't want to write the scene since it's real life problem men go though but specified that Sanji is physically unable to bring himself to hit a woman, which hurts his pride. For Sanji case, it's {{justified|Trope}} due to being ''raised'' in this life by the trope.
*** Sanji was severely beaten (by [=CP9=]'s Kalifa) as a result of this despite being far strong than her. Nami was quick to point out chivalry isn't worth dying for and that there was no shame in running away if he was unwillingly to fight Kalfia, but Sanji claimed he just couldn't. Seeing how torn he was over and Nami calls him idiot but then goes and avenges him by fighting Kalfia herself, Nami even said she did like his commitment to his ethics.
*** Sanji points a gun at Nico Robin on one occasion, but admits that it was a reflex to protect Vivi. Sanji is also willingly to block and counter blows from women e.g Kalfia, Arbell (filler) and even goddamn Yonko Big Mom.
*** The only time where Sanji or at least a part of him attacked a woman is in Thriller Bark where his shadow was put in a zombie penguin ''Inuppe'' by Gecko Moria. At first Inuppe was unwillingly to hurt Nami and protected her. However Sanji's shadow soon forgot itself and mercilessly kicked down Robin when fighting her, to shock of Chopper who had been counting on using Sanji's chivalry to beat his shadow. It's quite brutal and jarring.
*** Sanji is often set against men who actively [[WouldHitAGirl hurt and abuse]] women like Absalom and Niji his (brother). Really Sanji's is an more positive example of this, considering the only two people who showed him love in childhood were his mother and sister.

*** In the ''One Piece: Grand Battle'' video game. If you play as Sanji vs. any female character, his dialog will change. He'll still fight like normal, but he'll say things like "I'm so sorry!" "Oh no! What have I done!" and "[[BreakingTheFourthWall someone else is controlling my legs!"]]

* Both played straight and subverted in a single episode of ''Series/{{Highlander}}''. An immortal former lover of Duncan's, (a PsychoExGirlfriend sort) with a penchant for trying to ruin his life (or the lives of people around him) including by murdering potential LoveInterests shows up. When they duel, Duncan disarms her but cannot bring himself to kill her. At that point Methos, a friend of Duncan's and a 5,000 year old AntiHero immortal with no qualms about saying IDidWhatIHadToDo steps in, introduces himself to her as a man born long before the age of chivalry, challenges her to a fight and beheads her in about 30 seconds.[[note]]That said, Duncan himself ''had'' fought and killed female immortals before, so it might have been influenced as much by their past relationship as her sex.[[/note]]

* Played with in ''Manga/AiNoShintairiku''. Sara doesn't hit a female bully because she is [[{{transsexual}} biologically male]] and thus it "wouldn't be fair". She then says that she'll have to wait until she's a "real girl".

** Kuwabara is revealed to have "don't fight girls" as part of his personal moral code. He even refuses to fight the demon Miyuki during the Rescue Yukina arc, despite the fact that she is both deliberately challenging him and quite offended by this attitude. Yusuke, meanwhile, promptly steps up and reveals that [[WouldHitAGirl he has no problems with fighting girls]], declaring that he doesn't understand what the problem is with refusing to fight somebody who wants to fight you just because they're a different sex and proceeding to brutally finish her off. In the unedited dub, after beating her senseless, Kuwabara starts to protest Yusuke's actions in outrage, for which Yusuke reluctantly explains that Miyuki isn't a woman at all. She's a female-dressed {{transsexual}} (presumably male to female, though comments made could be taken as making her to be a female to male) with breasts and male sexual organs, leading to the following amusing quote:

** Chikage Rokujo has a very strict code about hurting women, and refuses to let anyone get away with doing so. In fact, his code is so strict that the only reason he ever shows mercy to men is because he's worried that the women who care for them will be upset if he hurts them too bad.

** In one strip, Charlie Brown actually does hit Lucy (not very hard) and he feels immensely guilty about it. He goes to Lucy's psychiatric booth and explains what happened as though he's talking to a completely differently person. She slugs him and he declares that, "I don't feel guilty anymore! Psychiatry has cured me!"
