* When Gaia the Earth of Myth/GreekMythology was sick of her husband Uranus the Sky (who was also her son) ramming their children back into her womb because he hated and feared them, she fashioned a sickle and asked her children to avenge her. The youngest and boldest one, Cronus, then took the sickle, and ''castrated his father'' when Uranus let his guard down. Uranus then cursed them with the name "Titans", or "Over-reachers".
* The Greeks may have gotten this story from the earlier Hittite myth, in which Kumarbi ''bites off'' the testicles of the sky god Anu and [[MisterSeahorse gets pregnant from them.]]
* Having murdered his brother Osiris, the [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Egyptian]] deity Set dismembered the corpse. This included the severing of Osiris's penis, which was swallowed by a fish before Isis could find it and incorporate it into her late husband's reassembled body.
** He got better though after Isis created a new one for him out of ivory.
* Later in the same myth, [[ChaoticStupid Seth]] gets one or both his [[GroinAttack Crown Jewels]] ripped off by [[YouKilledMyFather Horus]] in a fight, [[ContinuitySnarl depending on the version]]. [[LaserGuidedKarma What goes around comes around, eh?]]
* Adonis of Myth/GreekMythology was caught in a LoveTriangle between Persephone and Aphrodite. Aphrodite won, and the jealous Persephone told Ares of Aphrodite's new lover. Ares turned into a boar and gored Adonis in the crotch.
* The Fisher King from the [[KingArthur Parcival]] mythos. A spear got him in the hips...groins...whatever. (Your {{Bowdlerize}} may vary, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fisher_King see here]] for details.)
* The [[JapaneseMythology legend of "Kanamara"]] ([[MeaningfulName "steel penis"]]) has a demon taking a liking to a GirlNextDoor, forcibly giving hr a VaginaDentata via DemonicPossession, and inflicting this on least two prospect grooms during their respective wedding nights. The [[RuleOfThree third groom]] was a GenreSavvy blacksmith who forged a "dildo" and tricked the demon into biting it instead of his cock, managing to shoo the demon away and get HappilyMarried to the grateful girl. The legend would be the origin of the rather infamous [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanamara_Matsuri "Kanamara Matsuri"]]
