Rape Out Of Lust

Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil and often indicates that a character who attempts it is a Complete Monster. Sometimes rather than being for simply for evil purposes, although a character who rapes another character is definitely not a nice person, a character rapes or attempts to rape another character because they lust (sexually) after them and perhaps couldn't control their sexual urges/desires. Sometimes they just threaten or imply that they want to rape them.

Anime and Manga
  • In one episode, a random guy approached Karin and said she has a pretty nice body. When she tried to get away he grabbed her and pulled her down a alley. Thankfully Karin's sister saved her.
  • In Mawaru-Penguindrum episode 11, Ringo drugs Tabuki with a Love Potion that makes him lust for her, but when she backs off she barely escapes being in the receiving end of this at the hands of a Tabuki who is very much Not Himself.

    Well considering rape has more to do with power and control most of the time this is an unrealistic thing to show happening.

    Seconded. And if there's love potion involved, it's rape by inability to consent. actual rape is not about lust or love.

    Although, unrealistic or not, it has been used as a trope.

    Luke and Laura from General Hospital for example. He raped her; they later married.

    Unrealistic how? Although power is a huge component of rape, many rapes are committed by people who are sexually attracted to someone and simply don't consider consent important. In fact, historically, in some times and places, this was a commonly accepted form of intercourse, particularly with regard to bride-taking (the original literal definition of rape).

    While this is tropeable, remember this No Lewdness No Prudishness.

    No one needs to be a massive prude about it, but don't go into creeper territory either, we don't need to give the Troper Tales videos on Youtube more fuel for their fire.

    It's not likely to happen IRL, but in fiction, the rapist may say something like "I can't help myself! I must express my Rape Is Love!"
