[[caption-width-right:329:They're in love, can't you ''tell?'']]

A common [[AnimeCharacterTypes Japanese character type]], the Bastard Boyfriend (in Japanese, ''kichiku'', literally "brutal" or "demonic") character is an AlwaysMale LoveInterest whose defining trait is that he is cold, cruel, or abusive to his romantic partner, in a manner intended to be kinky and appealing to the audience. Western versions exist, but are comparatively rare nowadays due to the inherent UnfortunateImplications, except in fanfiction (which lacks the watchful eyes of MoralGuardians).

Bastard Boyfriends can be readily distinguished from the more generic {{Jerkass}} or DomesticAbuser because their abuse is [[{{Fanservice}} eroticized]], and their beloved's conflict and unhappiness will be played for titillation. As such, they are all-but-guaranteed to be MrFanservice, usually a {{Bishonen}}, and the consequences of their behavior are almost never [[DomesticAbuse handled realistically]]. The Bastard Boyfriend ''almost always'' [[OfficialCouple gets his girl (or guy)]], even in cases where they [[StrangledByTheRedString don't seem particularly compatible]], although a few are doomed to merely be [[RomanticFalseLead the rival]].

This type is common in YaoiGenre (as a standard {{Seme}} type), {{Shoujo}}, and, to a lesser extent, {{Josei}} romances, but comparatively rare in works aimed at a male audience, where guys like this are more likely to be the RomanticFalseLead or just [[StalkerWithACrush a villain]].

Their love interest, male or female, is usually TheProtagonist, although a minority of stories are from the Bastard Boyfriend's point of view. They will probably be presented as a LoveMartyr or TheWoobie, and is likely to spend quite a bit of the story [[{{Angst}} anguishing over the relationship]], possibly while [[SparklingStreamOfTears weeping beautifully]]. This trope has next to no overlap with BelligerentSexualTension, since Bastard Boyfriends never seem to show an interest in anyone with the backbone to defy them.

The Bastard Boyfriend is sort of the Alpha Male equivalent of a Type A {{Tsundere}}, but with the violent temper replaced by [[TallDarkAndSnarky cutting sarcasm]] and the ''deredere'' side turned down to near-zero. They are, of course, completely immune to CantActPervertedTowardALoveInterest, but they're usually [[EvenEvilHasStandards not]] [[WouldntHitAGirl physically abusive]], since that's [[FetishRetardant just not hot]]. There are plenty of exceptions, though.

Bastard Boyfriends come in two major types:

'''Unconflicted''' (standard): Poised, confident, and perfectly happy with his own behavior, either because he [[ItsAllAboutMe doesn't care what the other party thinks of him]], genuinely believes that abduction and molestation are [[StalkingIsLove viable ways of showing his affection]], or [[ForTheEvulz just is a plain, sadistic bastard]]. The BespectacledBastardBoyfriend (''Kichiku Megane'') subtrope is built on this type.

'''Conflicted''' (less common): TroubledButCute, and his abusiveness is generally driven by [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy]], insecurity, [[CannotSpitItOut a crushing inability to express his feelings]], a DarkAndTroubledPast that completely screwed up with his view of the world, or (very rarely) a desire to [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend drive the other person away]] (possibly out of a belief that they will be [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy happier with someone else]]). This type may have started as an attempt at a [[DeconstructedTrope more realistic]] implementation of the character type.

Both kinds are highly likely to be [[CrazyJealousGuy jealous and possessive]]. Expect plots to feature a GreenEyedEpiphany -- a character realizing their love only via jealousy.

The Bastard Boyfriend is likely to be [[LoveRedeems redeemed]] by ThePowerOfLove at the end of the book; alternately, he may eventually be revealed to be [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold nicer underneath]]. A minority may be revealed to have a FreudianExcuse (such as AbusiveParents or [[LoveHurts extremely bad former romances]]). If none of these things happen, his partner may decide that StalkingIsLove and embrace their status as a LoveMartyr. Along the way, the Bastard Boyfriend may well be MasterOfTheMixedMessage, if the author needs something to keep his partner strung along.

Mature-rated works that have Kichiku characters are likely to involve [[MindGameShip psychological abuse]], LovingForce, and maybe some {{B|oundAndGagged}}DSM. PG-rated examples tend to be [[TallDarkAndSnarky cold, aloof, or sarcastic]]. In either case, fan reaction tends to be polarized: either they're [[PerverseSexualLust hot and sexy]] and their love affair is {{squee}}able, or they're total {{Jerkass}}es and the relationship is {{squick}}tastic.

Works that contain StalkerWithACrush or MadLove relationships are likely to attract [[DracoInLeatherPants fan interpretations]] where the characters are recast along these lines.

SpearCounterpart of BastardGirlfriend. Usually a type of RomanticizedAbuse and subtrope to AllGirlsWantBadBoys, with a side order of EvilIsSexy. If the Kichiku character also has status, power, and [[SexySpectacles hot little glasses]], he's a ''kichiku megane'' (see BespectacledBastardBoyfriend). For sort-of Western equivalents, see HandsomeDevil, who is usually more sarcastic than cruel, and the RomanceGenreHeroes under The Bastard and The Sadist, although those are usually played as villains. Contrast the {{Jerkass}} varieties of RomanticFalseLead and the DisposableFiance, who are superficially similar but guaranteed ''not'' to get the girl, and the DomesticAbuser and UnsexySadist, who have the cruelty minus the fetishization.

'''A Handy Chart to determine if a character is this trope:'''\\
Your guy is in love, and he demonstrates his love in an abusive or predatory manner. His love interest:
* Wants nothing to do with him: StalkerWithACrush
* Thinks his behavior is ''sooooo'' romantic: StalkingIsLove
* Abuses him right back: BelligerentSexualTension
* Is unhappy and conflicted, and:
** The author wants you to think he's a {{Jerkass}} and she's a saint for putting up with him: DomesticAbuser meets LoveMartyr
** The author wants you to think he's ''totally hot'' and the relationship [[CorruptTheCutie is deliciously kinky]]: This Trope.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
'''{{Shoujo}}/{{Josei}} examples:'''
* Kyo in ''Manga/BlackBird'': wants to marry female lead Misao, who he has been in love with [[PuppyLove since they were children]], and [[IntimateHealing licks her erotically]] when she gets attacked by his fellow demons (which is often). Doesn't seem to care that she's not completely on board with either of these ideas. Then she falls in love with him...but the saddest thing is, [[StockholmSyndrome he's one of the few reliable allies that she has in the whole Tengu vs. humans deal]], so if she ''did'' fully spurn him, other Tengus would jump at the chance to kill/rape/eat her. [[TheChewToy Still sucks to be her.]] In the end, of course, he ''is'' willing to do anything (including killing his own brother) to keep her happy and safe at the expense of his own life, and he ''does'' [[PetTheDog show genuine kindness]] [[FriendToAllChildren to children]].
* Director Domoto in ''Manga/ButterfliesFlowers'' (but only when in dictatorial-boss mode).
* The male leads created by Creator/MayuShinjo have different degrees of this. The better known example is Sakuya Ookochi from ''Manga/SensualPhrase'': this is largely because of an incident where his girlfriend, Aine Yukimura, ended up with a hickey (due to assault from another character); Sakuya, in a fit of jealousy, barged into her class, tore her uniform to reveal the hickey (and her bra strap), then took her home (while class was ongoing) and prepared to rape her. Only when her uniform was almost totally ripped off and the poor girl was weeping hysterically did he stop and realize WTF he was doing. Yeah, he's a Conflicted type with an ''extremely'' DarkAndTroubledPast (as in, [[spoiler: he's an HeroicBastard ChildOfRape, his "father" left him when he learned baby Sakuya wasn't his kid, he was bullied all the time because of his heritage, and his LadyDrunk mom drank herself to death when he was a child]]) and ''[[CharacterizationMarchesOn does]]'' [[CharacterizationMarchesOn get kinda better with time]] ([[spoiler:the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue shows him as a decent father and husband, if somewhat of a LovableSexManiac when he and Aine are alone]]), but that's '''not''' an excuse.
** Don't forget Hakuron from ''HaouAiren''. Yeah, he ''is'' seriously screwed up after being raised in TheTriadsAndTheTongs, [[spoiler: and killed his father among MANY other things]], and he ''does'' admit to Kurumi that he's fucked up, but that doesn't erase how, the moment he met Kurumi, he tried to keep her from making a noise by ''threatening to rape her''. (And later, well, he ''does''. For three days straight, even.)
** And then there's both Hanamaki and Gin from ''LoveCeleb'', to different degrees. Ironically, Gin's BigBrotherMentor was...Sakuya, another BB.
** And even {{Satan}} himself becomes this in ''AkumaNaEros'' (Virgin Crisis)! Oh Miu Sakurai, you lucky little thing, you.
* Ryoki in ''HotGimmick'' is a rare example of the BespectacledBastardBoyfriend subtype built off of the TroubledButCute model.
* Several of Shigeta's love interests in ''HappyMania''.
* Takumi from ''{{Nana}}'' [[spoiler:: abusive, controlling rapist. So Hachi chooses him over Nobu and marries him, though, in a subversion, it's ''not'' only about her OMG loving him, but quite more because because she's pregnant, he ''is'' the father of the child, ''and'' she believes that as a popular and rich singer he can provide better for both her and the baby.]]
* Hijiri from ''A Portrait Of N And M'' looks like he's going to be one of these (he intimidates Mitsuru, fondles her hair, and tries to blackmail her into dating him), but gets subverted when it is revealed that [[spoiler:he is actually deathly afraid of dogs and wants her to protect him from a rambunctious puppy on his route home.]]
* Shoei Jinnai of ''Manga/DesireClimax''.
* One of the "Love Egoist" {{omake}}s from the ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' manga involves a StepfordSmiler high school girl learning that the cute, friendly young male teacher who all her classmates admire is secretly as mean and sarcastic as she was on the inside.
* {{Deconstructed|Trope}} with Shoutaro "Shou" Fuwa from ''Manga/SkipBeat''. He treats his childhood friend, Kyouko Mogami, like crap since she lives at his house after she falls victim to ParentalAbandonment, and is completely devoted to him...but the moment he ''openly'' berates and humiliates her is actually the moment she ''[[WomanScorned snaps]]'' on him, realizes how much of an asshole he is, and openly swears {{Revenge}}.
* ''AkumaDeSourou'' has [[HandsomeDevil Takeru]], who blackmails [[ShrinkingViolet Kayano]] into becoming his servant, sabotages her relationship with the guy she likes, and generally emotionally bullies her in the beginning. He seems to think it's only teasing, but considering how shy and emotional Kayano is, it comes off much harsher. Despite the progression in their relationship, he remains cold and distant, which makes her almost perpetually nervous.
* Q-Ta Minamitani from ''HoneyHunt'' is a ManipulativeBastard towards Yura, is possessive of her, and shows little genuine interest in learning what Yura truly wants.
* ''BokuraGaIta'': Yano has a hard time trusting Nanami completely, displaying jealousy and possessiveness, even to the point of physically abusing her.
* ''ReimeiNoArcana'': though they're technically married, Caesar starts off as this towards Nakaba, yanking on her braid and forcing kisses on her in the first chapter. Needless to say, once Caesar begins to genuinely fall for Nakaba, he stops doing these childish and insensitive antics for the most part and treats her gently and with respect.
* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'': Just about all of the main male cast with the exception of Miki. This is, of course, played for epic {{Deconstruction}}, and also in different eays: Saionji is the typical DomesticAbuser and ''very'' much the Conflicted Type, Touga is a ManipulativeBastard version and Unconflicted case, [[spoiler: Ruka]] tries to be the Conflicted Type and mix it with [[spoiler: ThanatosGambit]], and finally [[spoiler: Akio is what happens when a FallenHero completely loses it and becomes the Unconflicted type UpToEleven.]].
* Kyota Tsubaki in ''Manga/KyoKoiOHajimemasu'' manipulates girls into falling for him and then dumps them because he can't trust them, humiliates his girlfriend Tsubaki in front of their class and almost rapes her. He stops doing most of those things after he begins dating Tsubaki, and genuinely seems to care for her.
* Kouta from the one-shot manga ''Vitamin'' is like this. He says he loves his girlfriend Sawako and will stick by her, but he forces her into having sex and lies about being with her. Sawako eventually breaks up with him though.
* Sata Kyouya in Manga/OokamiShoujoToKuroOuji treats Erika as his personal dog on the condition of becoming of his fake girlfriend, even after the two start dating for real he's still a jerk to her (just not as much).
* Ultimately averted in LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru. It looked like Sachiko's arranged fiancè Suguru was heading towards this, but hile he tends to be very mean-spirited he nevertheless cares for Sachiko in his own, quiet way, shows gratitude to Yumi for helping his fiancee with her problems, and once even warned Touko of further alienating any prospective friend should she keep up her JerkassFacade. [[spoiler: And he's strongly implied to have feelings for someone else... [[HoYay Yumi's brother Yuuki]].]]

'''YaoiGenre examples:'''
* Ryuichi Asami in the ''FinderSeries'' (along with many other Ayano Yamane {{seme}}s): starts off with rape and BDSM, then develops a romantic side. And so Takaba falls in love with him.
* Nakajima in ''GakuenHeaven'', in the manga volume that follows his route in the VisualNovel (which includes LovingForce -- in the first volume that doesn't follow him at all, there's [[spoiler: attempted rape]], and he is tremendously rude to Keita throughout, though he points out that if the central love interest does nothing, he'll take Keita for himself). In the anime, he's toned down to a {{Jerkass}}, and his sexual harassment is elbow-licking.
* Yonekuni (crocodile-boy) in ''Manga/LovePistols'' volumes 1 and 2: [[DoesNotLikeMen hates men]]. Nasty to Shirou. Screws Shirou (repeatedly over a two year period). [[LaserGuidedAmnesia Doesn't realize it.]] [[GreenEyedEpiphany Jealousy ensues.]] Shirou, of course, is desperately in love with him.
** What's really frustrating about it that Shirou has [[HeroicSelfDeprecation horribly low self-esteem]] and doesn't think he deserves Yonekuni. In later volumes, it gets to the point where he actually believes that Yonekuni has graciously accepted his feelings and is simply putting up with his presence.
** This trope also applies to Seth. You can't really avoid being attributed with this trope when you knocked your lover out, took him to the ''opposite side of the world into a war zone'', shackled him to the bedpost, and then [[ItMakesSenseInContext demanded a child from him]]. The fact that he did it because he loved him and was [[GreenEyedMonster jealous beyond all reason]] doesn't change anything. It ''does'', however, explain why [[TooDumbToLive it was incredibly stupid and short-sighted of him]].
** From the same series, a Shoujo-Ai/Yuri example is in Yonekuni's mother, Makio Madarame (the resident heroic sociopath of this manga). When they first met, she pushed her love interest, Karen, '''''out of a four story window''''', and the only reason Karen survived was because of her madararui nature (and she still broke her legs!). Makio ''did'' spend the following months taking her everywhere and caring for her (against Karen's wishes), but still...Even after twenty years together, this trope ''continues'' to apply to Makio, as she constantly causes Karen no end of misery from everything from cheating on her to trying to derail Yonekuni or Kunimasa's psychological development, or running her prostitution outfit within the vicinity of their restaurant. These last two coincided at one point where she tried to pimp Kunimasa off to the highest bidder...[[BewareTheNiceOnes and Karen was NOT happy]].
** Yonekuni's brother, Kunimasa Madarame, is really only slightly better than Yonekuni when it comes to ''his'' boyfriend, the main character Norio "Norririn" Enya. Mostly because he's the master of mixed messages to the point where he has Norririn running terrified in fear that he's going to either break up with him or propose to him. Considering that {{Ma|nipulativeBastard}}kio is their mother, both Yonekuni and Kunimasa didn't really have a chance when it came to learning by example of how to maintain a functional relationship.
** Considering that [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters this is Love Pistols]], you have quite a few dysfunctional relationships running around, but special mention has to go to Hiromasa and Shima's. Originally, they were sex friends in high school, and split up when Hiromasa's family moved him to a different prefecture, and then wound up working in the same hospital in their mid-twenties, eventually re-starting the sexual relationship they had before. Despite how much he tries to distance himself, Shima is in love with Hiromasa, but believes that if he tried to get any closer to him, he'd lose interest and leave him. In a moment of weakness, he uses a conception device that the Madarui use for same-gender reproduction (his thinking is along the lines of [[LoveMakesYouDumb "at least he'd have something of him" when they eventually broke up]]). Consequently, [[MisterSeahorse he gets pregnant]]. Now, ''here's'' the bit where it gets creepy. [[spoiler: It turns out that Hiromasa has actually been in love with Shima for years, and he came back from Kyoto to work in the same hospital as him for the expressed purpose of getting closer to him.]] Okay, that's fine, right? Well, here's the thing...[[spoiler: Hiromasa noticed the fact that Shima seemed to be able to brush their relationship off like it was nothing, and had, for months, without Shima's knowledge, [[{{Yandere}} been using a very powerful conception drug on him in order to get him pregnant so he could tie him to him and stop him from leaving him.]] When Shima finds out that he's pregnant, despite being shocked beyond all belief, he blames himself, and Hiromasa not only ''lets him think that it's all his fault'', but [[IfICantHaveYou threatens to abort the child if it's not his]]. After things have calmed down a bit and Shima's sleeping in his arms, he remarks mildly in an internal monologue how nice it was to have miscalculated the extend of Shima's feelings for him and also how nice it was that ''[[MurderTheHypotenuse he wouldn't have to kill anyone for sleeping with or impregnating him]].'']] Ladies and gentlemen, your Bastard Boyfriend incarnate.
* Genma in ''Ze'' volumes 3 and 4: possessive, controlling, and completely eaten up with jealousy at the thought that Himi [[spoiler:was his father's lover.]] He wasn't. Relaxes considerably after he finds this out. Himi has been in love with him since childhood and [[LoveMartyr meekly submits]] to rape and imprisonment.
* In the manga of ''{{Genshiken}}'', Ogiue draws an explicit {{yaoi}} {{doujinshi}} starring her clubmate/crush Sasahara as a ''kichiku'' {{seme}} and clubmate Madarame as his quailing {{uke}}. In the {{anime}}, this gets expanded to an entire sequence: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgWGNKQMtnE Youtube.]] Hilarious, since Sasahara is actually a NiceGuy and a little shy.
* Yuki from ''{{Gravitation}}'' is a PG Conflicted type example.
* Iason ''and'' Guy from ''LightNovel/AiNoKusabi'', but Iason defines this by putting Riki through hell for 3 years to [[BreakTheHaughty break his pride]] so he may become submissive to Iason..
* Kanou from ''OkaneGaNai'' is surprisingly a Conflicted type.
* Souma from ''SakuraGari''. He begins via taking Masataka under his wing as a butler/boarding student in his BigFancyHouse, then puts the moves on him, ''then'' rapes him and gets him [[ to pay a certain debt with sex]]... and then not only he has a massive emotional meltdown as all the sit he had pulled on Masataka sinks in, but then we learn that he's a Conflicted type with HUGE {{Freudian Excuse}}s.
* Swordfish from the yaoi manga ''Under Grand Hotel''.
* Sawatari Atsushi in the yaoi manga ''Interval''. Despite his initial cruel and heartless behavior for seemingly no reason, he's actually the Conflicted type.
* Naruse Fuuta in the yaoi manga ''KawaiiAkuma'' and its sequel is definitely Unconflicted.
* Averted and possibly parodied in ''{{Kizuna}}'', where {{seme}} Kei has the TallDarkAndHandsome looks and a {{Yakuza}} background that would make him the ''perfect'' Unconflicted type... yet his {{uke}}, Ranmaru, is a violent {{Tsundere}} and can have him ''very'' whipped.
* {{Gender Flip}}ped (as in, {{Yuri|Genre}}) examples: Himemiya Yukio from ''GokujouDrops''. She is definitely a Conflicted type. [[spoiler: She and the main character, Komari, both get better.]] Why is this example here? Because if all the residents of [[BigFancyHouse Haraiso Yakata]] are male, [[GenderFlip the story will be pretty much your standard Boys Love plot]]. (And yes, LovingForce is in full effect.)
* Sou Mizuhashi from ''AfterSchoolNightmare''.
* Ayace of ''LightNovel/{{Corsair}}'', who has no social grace and [[LovingForce unusual ideas]] about what constitutes consent.
* Klaus von Wolfstadt of ''HyakujitsuNoBara'' is a Conflicted type variety: very rough when he sexes up his secret boyfriend [[BrokenMessiah Taki Reizen]], and completely screwed up due to his past and his currently ''very'' difficult position in Taki's land.
* Some suspect Honma of ''Boku No Sexual Harassment'' as being this.
* Gilbert of ''Manga/KazeToKiNoUta'' can be like this to Serge. He's definitely a [[JerkassWoobie conflicted version]].
* Morinaga from ''TheTyrantFallsInLove'' starts out as a pretty straightforward DoggedNiceGuy with a five-year crush on his homophobic boss, Tatsumi. Then he decides to prove how much he loves Tatsumi by [[RomanticizedAbuse raping him]] while he was drunk and drugged, then blackmailing him into regular sex even though Tatsumi's made it abundantly clear that he's straight, uninterested and not enjoying himself ''at all''. What makes it worse is that Tatsumi's homophobia was occasioned by a NearRapeExperience at the hands of a college professor - which Morinaga knows all about, because ''he'' was the one who stepped in. Bastard boyfriend? Bastard boyfriend.


'''Non-{{Shoujo}} or YaoiGenre Examples:'''

* Parodied in [[MajinTanteiNougamiNeuro Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro]], where Neuro is constantly cruel to Yako for no good reason, and this is supposed to hint towards romantic relations between the two characters, as well as being played for laughs.
* [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami]] definitely qualifies; the only reason he enters any sort of relationship with Misa is because she has her own Death Note and is wildly, cultishly in love with him. He really doesn't seem to give a crap about her other than that, and, in fact, is as willing to cruelly use her as a pawn as he is any stranger on the street. The only time he (pretends to) show any affection for her is when she's angry at him, or he wants her to do something. If Misa hadn't started with the infatuation, there's ''no way'' he would have treated her as anything more than a good lieutenant.
** His treatment of his ''other'' girlfriend/lieutenant, Kiyomi Takada. It's more or less canon that they ''have'' had sex at least once, he manipulates her almost as much as he uses Misa as well, and ''unlike'' in Misa's case, [[spoiler:he callously disposes of her by using a piece of the Death Note to force Takada to burn herself to death as a part of his plan. Right after the girl had not only killed Mello for him, but was naked and frightened and trapped inside a truck, actually ''begging him to help her'' since she genuinely believes in him. [[BaseBreaker It doesn't matter if you liked her or not]], that '''was''' a [[MoralEventHorizon horrifyingly cruel move]] from Light.]]
* Izaya from ''{{Durarara}}'' is an interesting take on the concept: he's not anyone's BastardBoyfriend -- he's ''everyone'''s bastard boyfriend. Specifically, he insists that he's madly in love with ''humanity'' despite (nay, ''because of'') [[HumansAreFlawed all of its flaws]], and demonstrates this "love" by [[ManipulativeBastard trolling, manipulating, and generally dicking around with just about every person he meets]] [[{{Troll}} to get the reactions from humanity he loves so much]]. He even gets possessive and jealous when he encounters something that might upset the balance of this relationship (like, say, a {{Yandere}} [[EvilWeapon sword]] that ''also'' insists she's in love with all of humanity).
* Played with in ''LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima''. Louise's original fiancé Jean-Jacques ''seems'' to be a decent guy, and only shows his bad sides ''after'' Louise dumps him.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Fan Work ]]

* [[MostFanficWritersAreGirls Some fans]] love to turn Canon Characters into this trope, notably:
* Sasuke Uchiha from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', whether it's Yaoi, or Hetero. Can't be too hard to find.
** Neji Hyuuga, especially when paired with [[KissingCousins Hinata]].
* Seto Kaiba from ''Anime/YuGiOh'': [[http://m31ru-ch4n.deviantart.com/art/TPNM-Cover-141912936 example]].
** Also, try and find a [[SharingABody Yami Bakura/Ryo Bakura]] fanfic that ''doesn't'' have Yami Bakura mentally or even physically abuse his poor suffering host (and giving him his own body just to make the latter possible). Go on. We'll wait.
*** Challange accepted. [[http://sesshomaruswoman.deviantart.com/art/The-Possessed-Fanfic-Preview-245002178?q=gallery%3Asesshomaruswoman%2F9923519&qo=2 Behold,]] a [[PortmanteauCoupleName Tendershipping]] fic in which Ryo Bakura abuses his Yami!
* Yami Bakura, another ''Anime/YuGiOh'' character, in a good half of his romance fics.
** Example: ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4280755/1/Tainted-Soul Tainted Soul]]''
* [[DracoInLeatherPants Draco Malfoy]] in ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fanfic.
** Sirius Black seems to get this interpretation as well in some fics.
* [[AntiHero Edmund Pevensie]], from ''ChroniclesOfNarnia'', is portrayed as this in some fics, especially the [[BrotherSisterIncest Edmund/Lucy]] ones. Well, it's not that hard to see him that way since he practically [[BigBrotherBully torments and mocks the poor girl]] for pretty much the entire first book. So it's almost {{canon}}...[[{{Squick}} without the romance part, of course.]]
** Although the second book prominently shows that he learned from his mistakes and is Lucy's strongest supporter when she keeps talking about seeing Aslan, the movie version still likes to portray him as [[TheDarkSide dark]] to an extent, due to his [[DeadpanSnarker snarkiness]] and witty character. They even switched his and Capian's lines from the book, because, while Caspian was supposed to be tempted by evil in the third movie, they gave this role to Edmund and made him look like a jerk again when he fell into temptation for the second time, even though it was for a short period of time. That's why many fans still see him as the [[AntiHero bad one]]. And the bastard boyfriend title is easily used when it comes to Edmund Pevensie.
** It's somewhat canonical too, because, when Edmund fell into temptation for the second time, he actually [[WeCanRuleTogether tried to convince Lucy to join him when he wanted to obtain power]].
* Craig Tucker from ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' is portrayed as this in most fics, particularly the [[HoYay Craig/Tweek]] ones, since he is...let's say, [[AntiHero not quite]] [[DeadpanSnarker a pleasant]] [[TheStoic character]]. In most stories, he either acts like a jerkass towards everyone, a bully, a sociopath or he just does anything to obtain what he wants, using methods [[MemeticMolester like rape or molestation]].
** Eric Cartman. Almost half of [[PortmanteauCoupleName Kyman]] ([[FoeYay Cartman/Kyle]]) fics portray Cartman as a possessive, obsessed sociopath ([[SarcasmMode not that he's not like that in the real show, too]]) who wants to rape Kyle and torture him in all possible ways. Most of them are M rated, too.
** Kenny [=McCormick=] also gets this portrayal in 90% of the fics that involve him, due to his infamous status of being addicted to sex and drugs in the show. In most stories, he's an obsessed pervert who molests almost everyone around him or the object of his desires.
* Flippy from ''WesternAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'', and, good lord, to such an extent that almost the entire fandom sees him not only as an insane serial killer...but also as a serial rapist, due to the thousands anime-styled drawings in which he [[MemeticMolester either molests or rapes]] {{F|anPreferredCouple}}laky or [[LauncherOfAThousandShips any other character]]. His rape involves sharp tools and blood, as well.
* Nine times out of ten, the villainous half of a FoeYay ship becomes this trope. [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]] is one of the more popular examples, especially in doujinshi, and, oddly enough, is portrayed as either type depending on the fangirl.
* ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' has LOTS of fanon examples:
** Russia, the resident PsychopathicManchild and {{Yandere}}, is usually portrayed as this in fanworks that pair him up with someone, especially if it's with Lithuania or America (and admittedly, it's not easy to portray him as a decent boyfriend without [[DracoInLeatherPants running into the other extreme]]). As it stands, when Russia is paired with China, it can lead to either this or HappilyMarried.
** England can become this when fans take his [[{{Tsundere}} "tsun"]] side too far or become too enamored with the idea of him as a cocky, swashbuckling pirate claiming his love interest as his "possession" (with his favorite "love victims" being the wimpified Japan or America). And let's not get ''started'' on the Opium War and his fanon treatment of China and Hong Kong, which, more than once, has HK as actually England and China's ChildByRape (either via MisterSeahorse or China having been a SweetPollyOliver all along)...
*** This is also a distubingly common AlternativeCharacterInterpretation that follows the "[[WhatIf What if England remained an Empire?]]" scenario. Apparently, the only way a Still-Imperial!England can be portrayed as is...a violent and abusive bastard who still dresses like a pirate, shoots and beats up whoever dares raise their voice, and sexily abuses a Forever-Colony!America reduced to a whiny, wimpified LoveMartyr mess.
** Turkey is typically portrayed as this in [[FoeYay Turkey/Greece]] and [[UnequalPairing Turkey/Egypt]] fanworks (although it's much less common for the latter). While some Turkey/Greece works veer into BelligerentSexualTension instead by making Greece into a defiant {{Tsundere}} on equal fighting ground with Turkey, many more Turkey/Greece works make it clear that as hard as Greece tries to fight back, Turkey thoroughly dominates him and is free to abuse and even rape him because he either wants to [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty put Greece in his place]] or [[LovingForce just can't control himself around Greece]], leaving Greece a [[BreakTheCutie broken and embittered man]] who [[StockholmSyndrome nonetheless can't help but]] [[LoveMartyr keep coming back to Turkey]]. Some fics have him go as far as raping Greece [[{{Ephebophile}} as a teen]] or [[{{Shotacon}} a child]], brainwashing Greece into being his slave, or even raping Greece ''explicitly'' [[AttentionWhore because he'd rather have Greece hate him than be indifferent towards him.]]
*** He also comes off as this in Turkey/Hungary fanworks set in the "Ottoman Hungary" times, i.e. in several online places, there's quite the speculation about the possibility of the "young!Prussia finds an injured young!Hungary all battered and half naked after fighting the Ottoman Empire" strip being the aftermath to Turkey [[UnsettlingGenderReveal realizing that she's a girl]], [[SheIsAllGrownUp acknowledging how she's growing into a beautiful woman]]...and either tearing her clothes and ''raping'' her on the spot to [[StayInTheKitchen "show her what's her place in the Ottoman Empire"]], or [[ScarpiaUltimatum trying to forcibly get her]] [[SexSlave into his never-heard-of-before-in-canon harem]] (if she wasn't already there and was defeated while trying to run away, that is). If the fanworks are set ''after'' that time, however, it goes much more by the BelligerentSexualTension way, with an OlderAndWiser Hungary [[ActionGirl having the physical strength]] to keep Turkey's [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold lechery and/or jerkiness]] at bay.
*** Turkey/Japan fanworks are mostly free of this or at least don't have Turkey abusing or raping Japan. Even fanworks where Turkey's feelings for Japan are clearly one-sided portray him as a jealous but ultimately harmless HopelessSuitor at the very worst. Maybe because Turkey and Japan have always had a cordial history with each other.
*** Rather oddly averted with most Turkey/Iceland fanworks, ''even'' those in which Iceland is smacked with {{Wimpification}}. There are however a few with Ottoman Turkey kidnapping little/pre-teen!Iceland and putting him [[SexSlave in his harem]], "basing it off" the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_Abductions Turkish Abductions]] in Icelandic history.
*** In a kinda infamous Turkey/Ukraine doujinshii, Ottoman Turkey captures Cossack Ukraine (apparently representing the struggles between the Crimean Khanate and the Zaporoszhian Cossacks) after a battle. He then has her [[ShamefulStrip stripped naked]] and [[SexSlave delivered to his room]], where he rapes her and [[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization she ends up loving it]]. We're supposed to find it romantic.
** Poor Japan. Not only is he turned into a Bastard Boyfriend in numerous Japan/[insert any other Asian nation here] fanworks (which includes many Japan/China fanworks, pretty much all Japan/either Korea, Hong Kong, and/or Thailand fanworks, and even the few Japan/Taiwan fanworks that don't go the LadyAndKnight or HappilyMarried routes) thanks to his LawfulEvil [[ImperialJapan imperial history]], but he himself becomes the {{w|impification}}eepy [[LoveMartyr victim]]...er, "lucky lover" of a Bastard Boyfriend in numerous America/Japan and England/Japan fanworks. The only pairing exceptions ([[TemptingFate so far]]) are Greece/Japan (whose reputation as the "[[HappilyMarried peaceful, content]], [[KindheartedCatLover cat-loving]] pairing you steer clear of if you love angst" is too strong) and minor pairings like Turkey/Japan and Netherlands/Japan (who don't get that many fanworks in the first place, at least in the English-speaking fandom).
** China (as either [[ImperialChina the Chinese Empire]] or [[RedChina Mao's China]]) sometimes goes from the LoveMartyr victim to the Bastard Boyfriend {{Yandere}} in China/Taiwan or China/Hong Kong fanworks, flanderising the country's "interest" into having them back (HK), or portraying the reason why they left him (Taiwan) as him stalking, abusing, raping, or even forcibly getting them hooked onto opium. Thankfully, it's not exactly common.
*** He's not even safe in China/England fanwork. There's a Pixiv fanartist who has this as a kink, making ImperialChina a Bastard Boyfriend who forces an wimpified England to dress up in imperial lady robes and go through [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foot_binding footbinding]]. [[http://i54.tinypic.com/4h3v9i.jpg Even if the art style itself is not bad]]...
*** Even worse are the China/Japan fanworks that make ImperialChina a [[{{Shotacon}} pedophiliac]] {{Yandere}} who [[AbusiveParents physically, sexually, and psychologically abuses]] a completely wimpified Japan ever since he "discovered" him. (Or the fact that you can swap China and Japan's name in that sentence and replace "pedophiliac" with "sociopathic" and "discovered" with "conquered" [never mind that Japan never actually conquered China in real life, not even during WWII, and that China is actually the stronger nation nowadays] for a summary of at least 60% of Japan/China fanworks.)
** America gets this rep in more than one America/England and/or America/Japan badfic, with either England or Japan becoming the LoveMartyr to America's {{Jerkass}} or {{Yandere}} via {{Wimpification}}. Double points if it's an USA/Japan fic set in the American occupation times where America either punishes Japan for his role in UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo by raping him or becomes a dangerous Yandere who threatens to bomb him again. Triple points if it's a "USUK" fic where the real reason for UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution is either England's reaction to teenager!America [[LovingForce overpowering and raping him]], or America setting a spiteful {{plan}} in which he wants his "freedom" as a direct way to hurt and hate England (and often backed up by a France shown as a slutty, selfish EvilMentor [[RonTheDeathEater who leads America on *purely* to spit on]] [[PuritySue "poor" UK]] - way to flanderize the French role in the Revolution).
** While nowhere as common as Pirate!England, the renditions of Conquistador!Spain also tend to have more than one whiff of this trope. Fortunately, this happens more often than not in regards to the England/Spain or France/Spain pairings, which has a less chance of {{Wimpification}} than, i.e., Spain/kid-or-teen!Romano, Spain/soon-to-be-Empire!Netherlands, or Spain/teen-and-still-Imperial!Belgium.
** Two or three fans give this treatment to Prussia, too. This happens in some Prussia/Hungary (with a [[{{Chickification}} badly chickified]] Hungary, one may add), [[FoeYay Prussia/Austria]] and/or [[BrotherSisterIncest Germancest]] fics, but it's usually a rare sight.
** When the FoeYay between [[RedOniBlueOni Denmark and Sweden]] goes too far, the fanworks featuring this couple will make Denmark one of these. It's also a relatively common sight in [[VitriolicBestBuds Denmark/Norway]] fics: one of them had Denmark [[CrazyJealousGuy so deathly jealous]] of Norway's closeness to Iceland, that he has sex with Norway [[ForcedToWatch in front of Iceland]] [[{{Cuckold}} to "teach" Iceland that Norway is his boyfriend]].
** If we go to pure OriginalCharacter Realm, OC!Scotland is often portrayed by Japanese fans as a [[ViolentGlaswegian highly violent]] EvilRedhead who cruelly rapes and abuses a wimpified England.
* There are some fanfics out there that portray either Hibari or Mukuro from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' as a Bastard Boyfriend to Tsuna.
* Yu Kanda from ''DGrayMan'' sometimes tends to be made into a BastardBoyfriend for Allen. And let's not even talk about Tyki Mikk...
* Either Roy Mustang or Envy in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. With the latter, it's so common it's almost {{Fanon}} at this point, especially if they're basing the fic on the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime]] (where he's significantly more powerful, and his MO is basically ForTheEvulz).
* Kaede Rukawa from ''SlamDunk'' is frequently portrayed as this in fanwork to a wimpified Sakuragi. Yes, '''that''' [[BoisterousBruiser Hanamichi]] [[FieryRedhead Sakuragi]] is made into Rukawa's whiny and weepy uke.
* Parodied in ''WebVideo/GantzAbridged''. Kurono wants to be the BastardBoyfriend of Kishimoto, but he has, as he puts it, landed in the one anime where being an asshole doesn't get you the girl. She instead has a thing for the DoggedNiceGuy.
* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' fics pairing [[TheIngenue Ventus]] with [[FoeYay Van]][[ScrewYourself itas]] usually turn the latter into this.
* Heero Yuy, back when ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' was '''the''' yaoi fandom out there, was the poster boy for this trope. Fics where he sexily abused [[{{Wimpification}} Duo]], raped him and claimed to love him, killed or humiliated [[DieForOurShip Relena]] for daring to crush on him (which, of course, was ''[[MoralDissonance okay]]'', because she ''totally'' was a [[RonTheDeathEater pink-dressed]], [[RealWomenDontWearDresses girly]], [[{{Yandere}} Yandere whore]]) and commited other {{squick}}tastic deeds "because he loooooooved Duo so much" (like ''considering to keep Duo in a cage for his own sake'') were pretty much the hottest thing in those years, and fangirls ''loved'' such stuff.
* Ulquiorra Cifer in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' is transformed into this in {{fanon}}, particularly in some Ulquiorra/Orihime fics. This is usually featured along with DieForOurShip, most likely towards Orihime for not expressing romantic feelings towards him in canon. [[FlameWar And let's just leave it at that.]] It's also a popular interpretation of either Nnoitra or Aizen in any shippy stuff involving them, really not helped by ''both'' being infamous {{Memetic Molester}}s.

[[folder: Film]]
* ''A Woman's Face'': The 1941 version, that is. ConradVeidt's Torsten Barring is [[ThePornomancer a suave and charming]] bastard and a wannabe murderer, but he's also so hypnotic and attractive Joan Crawford's embittered heroine actually considers murdering a child for him. When she tries to refuse, he lures her in with erotic gestures dripping with sexual sadism. She ''quivers'' in a mixture of arousal and revulsion.
* [[spoiler: General Koskov]] is this to Kara Milovy in ''Film/JamesBond'' film ''Film/TheLivingDaylights''. Despite all of his gifts to her, he won't hesitate to [[spoiler: use her as a sniper bait and engineer her death.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]
* The sheik from ''Literature/TheSheik'': causing an entire generation of girls to swoon at the thought of being kidnapped and raped by a hot Arabian prince. (That Fetish Fuel was the intention is made transparent by the book's final pages, in which, [[spoiler:in a fit of conscience, he decides to send her away so he won't hurt her anymore, and the heroine threatens to kill herself]]. The fact that TheFilmOfTheBook starred [[MrFanservice Rudolph Valentino]] helped.
* It has been [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation HEAVILY argued]] that ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'''s Edward Cullen is an unintentional Conflicted type example of this trope. Jacob also [[DerailingLoveInterests gets warped]] into this in the third book. To add irony, it took Jacob becoming a Bastard Boyfriend for Bella to realize she has feelings for him.
** Relatedly, Christian Grey, the Edward-{{Expy}} from ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'', is practically the poster boy. While he claims to be into BDSM, what we see comes across a lot more like domestic abuse. At one point he outright rapes Ana, and uses the NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization. It's all meant to be seen as romantic.
* The ''WickedLovely'' series has Irial, who is incredibly emotionally abusive to Leslie, but is still hot. One reviewer describes their connection as 'Destructive yet seductive'.
** Don't forget his relationship with Niall in the past, after the whole ultimatum.
** Part of the dark court's whole nature is based around darkness, seduction, lust, torture, and beautiful destruction. The only important members of the DC who don't fit this trope to an extent are Bananach, who is more a LadyOfWar - her in-universe nickname is Lady War, after all - Ani, who is a PluckyGirl with dreams of chaos that her court disallows, and Niall, who fights every day to resist the darker side of his nature, although the injustices of the past and Keenan's apparent betrayal in Ink Exchange mean that, by Fragile Eternity, when he rules over these creatures, he is rather more inclined to give in to it.
** Irial is something of a subversion; he realizes that Leslie is better off without him, and he has spent centuries trying to make it up to Niall.
* Patch from ''Literature/HushHush'' emotionally manipulated and sexually harassed Nora. It was later revealed that [[spoiler: ''he was trying to kill her'' so he could get his wings back.]] Nora was understandably creeped out, but fell for him anyway.
* Chamberlain Yanagisawa of the ''Literature/SanoIchiro'' series is an Unconflicted type after his rise to power, taking out all of the humiliation he suffered to gain said power in the first place on his lovers. This trait is lessened throughout the series as he quickly realizes after his love affair with [[spoiler: Hoshina]] collapses that others are using him to gain power themselves.
* Nagasawa to Hatsumi in ''NorwegianWood''. She puts up with him throughout most of the book despite his casual cheating and bad treatment of her.
* The knight Erlend exhibits this behavior to the teenage girl Kristin in the trilogy ''Literature/KristinLavransdatter'', set in the Middle Ages. Played straight in the first book, where Kristin falls in love with Erlend, breaks her engagement with her NiceGuy fiance, and defies the will of her father to be with him, all despite his shady past and his none-too-kind treatment of her. Deconstructed in the two later books, set after Erlend and Kristin's marriage, where she has to live with the painful consequences of her decision, all in a highly patriarchial world that offers little support for women.
* Literature/ThePhantomOfTheOpera: In the original book by Gaston Leroux, Erik (the titular phantom) could be a {{deconstruction}}, if not an UnbuiltTrope: Erik is TheGrotesque PsychopathicManchild who terrorizes Christine [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe into marrying him]]. In the book, the author wants you to think Erik's a {{Jerkass}} and Christine is a saint for putting up with him (DomesticAbuser meets LoveMartyr), but the MisaimedFandom (and [[LostInImitation all the adaptations]]) wants you to think Erik's totally hot and the relationship is [[CorruptTheCutie deliciously kinky]].
* Although it is somewhat cleaned up in the movie, the woman in The Sheltering Sky was repeatedly raped by two of her Arab captors. Her subsequent behavior was more like shell shock than the movies kind of "once you go whatever ..."
* {{Literature/Gor}}. A Gorean master will be one of these toward any slavegirl he cares for. If he isn't one of these at the start, (or falls into the conflicted version of this trope) it will be a subplot that he becomes an example of the unconflicted version at the end, either in general, or toward a particular women whom he'll end up enslaving.

* On ''Series/AlloAllo'', Private Helga Geerhart is seen standing in a corner like a small child receiving a "time out." Quoth her fiancé Herr Flick:
--->"Let this be a lesson to you. That is the last time you burn my toast!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Music ]]
* The lyrics of the song "El duelo" by Chilean group ''La Ley'' seems to be written from the POV of a Bastard Boyfriend.
* "Under My Thumb" by Music/TheRollingStones comes off as a celebration of this, highlighted in its use in ''ScottPilgrimVersusTheWorld''.
* "Bad Enough For You" by Music/AllTimeLow fits this stereotype (on the surface at least) so exactly that it could be used as the title trope. However, it's also an inversion as the narrator states that he'd rather be a nice guy and treat his love interest well but knows the only way she'll fall for him is if he is bad enough for her.
* Judas by Music/LadyGaga could be interpreted as this and coming from the love interest's POV.
* Romantic Cheapskate V2.0 by MCFrotnalot is about a guy who delights in stringing a girl along with a minimal amount of commitment on his part. This character is particularly proud of the fact he has never spent any money on his girlfriend, instead resorting to petty theft for gifts, or sticking his girlfriend with the bill.[[labelnote:*]] The original song Romantic Cheapstake was about how, on each of the six previous occasions that Front submitted a song to online song contest Song Fight, he had won handily, with comparing the Song Fight contest to a mistreated girlfriend. This song also won handily, and Frontalot declared that having gone 7-for-7, he was not going to participate anymore.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]
* Eldoth to Skie in ''VideoGame/BaldursGate''. He's a blatantly sleazy, chauvinistic {{Jerkass}} who embodies the selfish nature of his NeutralEvil alignment. The only reason he elopes with Skie is so that he can blackmail her father by claiming he kidnapped her. He is only able to get away with this because Skie is just that naive and foolish and thinks he is romantic.
* Damien has at least significant shades of the conflicted version in ''MagicalDiary'', considering that he jerks you around for most of the year, culminating in breaking your heart [[spoiler:and trying to kill you by way of stealing your soul]]. The ''only'' way to get any of his endings - not even just the good one - is to tell him that you love him no matter what and then forgive him for what he did when he shows up again. Your roomies, however, ''will'' call you out on being a LoveMartyr if they find out that you've taken him back, though. [[spoiler:And by using Spirit Echoes and Empathy, you can find out that he has genuinely fallen in love with you and really does want to reform. But if you haven't been working on White magic, you might be left wondering how long it will be before he turns on you again.]]
** It's not quite that simple - you can get his endings even if you play yourself as conflicted rather than all-forgiving. It's just the "I hate you forever" options you can't pick. [[spoiler: And even with the white magic, it's questionable how much he's really changed. He doesn't want to kill you anymore, but he still enjoys messing with your head...]]
* Peter, a minor character in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'' that's only with you for a short part of a level, shows himself to be this. He seems to be a bit of a sociopath, and breaks the number one rule of surviving in a zombie apocalypse: ''stay together.'' He runs out into the street (away from the ''gun store'' that he and the other survivors (including Leon and Helena) had found shelter in) after ''stealing his girlfriend's gun'' and unsurprisingly gets killed by a zombie. Helena at least calls him out on repeatedly insisting the group abandon his girlfriend, though she's still upset when he dies.

[[folder: Visual Novels ]]
* The love/hate routes of the otome game ''VisualNovel/UnderTheMoon'' plays off this trope. The love interests begin the game on the fence about how to treat the heroine. The player's choices push them in one of two directions: towards "pure love" routes or "love/hate" routes. "Pure love" is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. In "love/hate", on the other hand, the guys give in to [[RomanticizedAbuse "romantic" abuse]] inclinations that generally include rape.
* Nakajima in ''VisualNovel/GakuenHeaven'', in his route.
* Out of Aoba's love interests in ''VisualNovel/DramaticalMurder'', Mink fits in perfectly. His introduction features him kidnapping the protagonist Aoba to be ''gang-raped in front of him'' (something that's just barely averted by Aoba's SuperpoweredEvilSide showing up) and his actual route involves him treating [[{{Wimpification}} a wimpified Aoba]] like dirt and coercing him into doing various things he doesn't want to do including, yes, rape. [[spoiler: It turns out he's a Conflicted Type with a MASSIVE FreudianExcuse, and in the sequel ''Re:Connect'' he shows remorse for having treated Aoba the way he did.]]
* ''Hadaka Shitsuji'' takes this trope UpToEleven. In a nutshell, the game revels in this trope so much that it goes so far as to invert VideoGameCrueltyPunishment by punishing the player with a Bad End if they have Tomoaki act ''too nice'' to his love interests. Yes, in order to get the "Good Ends" in this game, you have to have Tomoaki [[CrueltyIsTheOnlyOption act like a complete asshole and inflict truly horrible abuse on his preferred butler]] until said butler essentially becomes a StockholmSyndrome-induced LoveMartyr to him.
* Majima Tarou, a bonus character for Tokimeki Memorial Girls' Side. Basically everything he does involves being a narcissistic, self-absorbed, emotionally flip-floppy Jerkass who torments the protagonist, demands that she do ridiculous things for her, yells at her when he does, and all-around acts abusive to the poor Love Martyr protag who spends a lot of the time in tears.
* Shiki from VisualNovel/TogainuNoChi is the Unconflicted type.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* Although the story's only two chapters in, and there seems to be more to be revealed where he's concerned, [[NameOfCain Cain]] of the ''Starfighter'' webcomic plays this one straight from the get-go. His idea of an icebreaker with his new navigator/roomie Abel is to bite Abel's lip so hard that he leaves a permanent scar, announce that Abel is now his bitch, and alternately threaten and sexually harrass him (sometimes both at once). Give Abel his due, though, despite his occasional emotional moments, he's a lot more assertive about not taking Cain's shit than most of the {{Love Martyr}}s listed here.
** "The one with the scar.. Don't look at him, don't touch him.. .. And don't fucking talk to him!" [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Self Explanatory]].

* WebVideo/AskThatGuyWithTheGlasses's sexual sadism towards [[DepravedBisexual everyone]] he meets is very often played for {{fanservice}}.
