* When Gaia the Earth of 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 [[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.
* 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 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.
