** Among Green Martians, the trope is also gender-inverted; women are expected to refrain from attacking men.

* In the 2002 ''Julius Caesar'' miniseries, the Roman dictator Sulla invades the city and has all his many political enemies killed in a massive purge. When he come face to face with the young Caesar (the son-in-law of one of his enemies), he wants Caesar to divorce his wife and go in exile on pain of execution. Caesar questions his sincerity and worries about his wife's well-being, but Sulla claims that he leaves women to their health. Indeed, we never see him harm a woman or order such action.

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'': One episode has Gizmo Duck trying to get a robot to stop hitting him by disguising himself as a woman. When that doesn't work, he tries the same costume again, but with glasses. He still gets hit.

* ComicStrip/{{Popeye}} absolutely refuses to hit women. In one cartoon, he has to fight the Sea Hag and her vulture, so he gives Olive Oyl some spinach; he dispatches the vulture and she takes care of the Sea Hag.

* In a real-life example, during the New York newsboys' strike of 1899, the striking newsboys used violence against scabs (i.e. boys selling papers in defiance of the strike) and against the delivery wagons that distributed the newspapers, but they never used violence against the women who owned and ran newsstands that sold the boycotted newspapers. Kid Blink, leader of the strike, said "A feller can't soak a lady."

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/SuperBestFriendsForever'', Solomon Grundy refuses to fight Supergirl, Batgirl and Wonder Girl for this very reason. They try to persuade otherwise him but he still refuses. Finally they decide that even though he refuses to fight them, it doesn't mean they can't fight him, and proceed to beat the crap out of him. Solomon Grundy is left to seriously reconsider his stance.

* 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, Badasses 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 ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'', [[spoiler:[[BigBad Toneri]] forces the brainwashed Hinata]] to attack Naruto, thinking that Naruto wouldn't be able to fight back [[spoiler:because of his love for her]].

However, once he realizes that [[spoiler:[[HypnotizeThePrincess she's been hypnotized by Toneri]]]], he frees her [[spoiler:from the mind-control]] ''without'' harming her.
