Memetic Molester

"Woody" takes on a whole new meaning.

ALMA WANTS YOU.

A specific type of Memetic Mutation, like the Memetic Badass but far, far worse for the character's reputation. Maybe the character has a habit of making unsettling facial expressions. It could be that those vibes of suspicion are coming from their preferred choice of company or method of blackmail. Perhaps their name, weaponry, or design is a bit... suggestive of something. For whatever reason, the Fanon hivemind will portray this character as a rapist for the lulz.

Contrast with the Memetic Sex God, who is desired by everyone. Compare and contrast with Memetic Psychopath who is depicted as being an Ax-Crazy, murderous killer for laughs. Compare and contrast with a Memetic Troll who is depicted as a Troll for laughs.

  • The Burger King
    • At Burger King, you can have it your way. The Burger King, however, has it his way. There used to be commercials that actually said 'Don't go to bed before the king.'
  • Uh oh... you better start running... No, really. Because if you don't...BELLY'S GONNA GET YA!!!
  • From Venezuela, I bring you Baneskin, the mascot of Banesco.
    • Not half bad than the Childhood Inspector from that very same country. Who gets into your house very quietly, asks children to show them their bedroom and get dressed and then... he gives them a hot dog if he considers them "child enough". I mean, what were they thinking?
  • The 1960s incarnation of Ronald McDonald is, even accounting for Values Dissonance, creepy as hell. In his first commercial he first shows up sitting by himself in the dark, then the lights come on and it's a guy in the least-convincing clown costume ever, he has a tray with hamburgers and fries at crotch level, then there's this exchange:
    Announcer: Ronald, come meet the boys and girls.
    Ronald: Oh, we've already met. I know we're gonna be friends because I like to do everything boys and girls like to do.
  • Smiling Bob, because he's just... creepy. The fact that he's selling "natural male enhancement" pills only makes it worse.
    • Possibly an Invoked Trope since it's plausible the grotesque smile is the basis for the advertisement.
  • This dog (at the end of the one commercial he quite literally looks like he's humping the kid) from a Japanese potato chip commercial. He's like the new Pedobear.
  • The NAPA Know-How Guy seems like he's about to pull a weapon out from under the counter until he smiles and wags that air filter around. The customer's reaction shot only confirms that he's about to give up more than money to make his car run better.
  • THE SUN FIZZ GUY IS COMING!!! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!!!
  • The old dancing guy in the Six Flags commercials. His name is Mr. Six.
  • NEVER say no to Panda! I'd feel unsafe around that bear, and not because of his temper.
  • The Travelocity commericals always feature their mascot: The Roaming Gnome, a lifeless garden gnome who seems to show up everywhere you go.
  • There's a reason Jello's "Pudding Face" campaign only lasted three commercials. The original was the worst. It takes the Uncanny Valley Up to Eleven.

    Films — Live-Action 
  • If the Kink Meme is anything to go by, and his behavior in TRON: Legacy is any indication, then Clu's heading here faster than a stolen light-cycle.
  • Jesus Quintana from The Big Lebowski. Paradoxically, nobody is allowed to fuck with him.
    He's a sex offender. With a record. He did four months at Chino for exposing himself to an eight year-old. When he moved to Hollywood he had to go door to door, to tell everyone he was a pederast.
  • Harry Potter
    • Lucius Malfoy in the movie version of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. His first appearance involves the following: he introduces himself to Harry, talks in a simpering, slithery voice, (Mister Potter? Lucius Malfoy. We meet at last.), shakes Harry's hand and then suddenly pulls Harry close to him where he uses his cane to pull back Harry's bangs to take a look at his scar, without his consent. (Your scar is legend...) Or how in the fourth movie he stops Harry with his cane and tells him ominously, "Do enjoy yourself, won't you? While you can..."
    • In Deathly Hallows there's a bit where he tries to convince Draco to do something whilst leaning really close to him, stroking the back of his neck and whispering creepily. Draco has pretty much the same look on his face as when Bella was doing it: "Why oh why must my family keep pseudo-hitting on me?"
    • Let us not forget that incredibly uncomfortable moment in the sixth film when Bellatrix, apropos of nothing, kisses Draco's neck. In a way one does not kiss a nephew. Made considerably worse by the frequent implications of inbreeding when it comes to the pureblood families (in the books at any rate).
    • Oh, and then there's Ralph Fiennes creepy portrayal of Voldemort in the fourth movie onward. Especially creepy is the way he calls Robert Pattinson's dead character "such a beautiful boy" and strokes the corpse's face with his toes.
    Voldemort: I could not touch him! It was old magic, something I should've foreseen... But no matter... no matter... things have changed... (gets close to Harry) I can... touch you...NOW! (touches Harry's forehead causing Harry to scream in pain while Voldemort mockingly screams with him, almost sounding as if he's having an orgasm)
    • That graveyard scene was just unfortunate in a myriad of ways, wasn't it?
    • Gilderoy Lockhart had a large number of young female fans at Hogwarts. There is a spell called Obliviate that allows wizards to erase memories without a trace, which Gilderoy Lockhart was absurdly good at, to the point where he could make people not even realize what memories they had lost. Gilderoy Lockhart loved fame, fortune, and the admiration of his fans, and for a detention called students up to his office to sort through his fan mail. All alone in his office, with a man who could make you forget anything.
    • Peter Pettigrew slept in Ron Weasley's bed. Remember that spell called Obliviate?
    • Bellatrix also gets on the action in Deathly Hallows Part I. She pins Hermione on the floor and lies on top of her during their "girl talk"
    • There's also the Snatcher (Scabior) who keeps cropping up in the Deathly Hallows films and his uncomfortable fixation on Hermione. According to an Entertainment Weekly interview, they had to tone the creepiness down.
    • Then there's that awkward moment where Voldemort hugs Draco and moans his name while doing so making it sound more like he's having sex with him.
  • Willy Wonka from the more recent adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory inspired quite a lot of people to call him a pedo. (Probably due to some superficial similarities to Michael Jackson to begin with; at the time the film hit theaters, Jackson's trial on child molestation charges had just wrapped up.) Note that he was intentionally depicted as eccentric by Johnny Depp, who got his inspiration from the overly enthusiastic kids show hosts of his youth, as opposed to Jackson.
  • Inverted by Peter Molyneux's "Milo" demo at E3 2009 — the title character is a 10-year-old boy whom the player interacts with. Cue a million pedophile jokes.
  • Star Wars: Emperor Palpatine seems oddly interested in Anakin. And later Mara. And then Luke. And then Anakin.
    Palpatine: Are you going to kill me?
    Anakin: I would certainly like to!
    Palpatine: (closing his eyes and whispering) I know you would.
    Kevin (as Palpatine): Oh baby...
    Palpatine: I can feel your anger...
    Kevin (as Palpatine): Ohhh, I can feel it...
  • Transformers
    • Soundwave has already gotten this for "raping" a satellite in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Which of course leads to Crack Fics about the two (the satellite being upgrade to a female autobot). Also in the third movie, Soundwave holds Carly hostage inside his vehicle form and proceeds to threaten her with several sharp metal tendrils.
    • Megatron gets this reputation as well, especially in regards to Sam.
  • Star Trek: Especially on the Star Trek XI kink meme, Big Bad Nero tends to be written as something of a rapist. Has been seen perving on Kirk, Spock, Uhura, Chekov, and probably Bones and Sulu somewhere.
    • So, to a lesser extent, has Ayel, Nero's Dragon (quite often with them being this way to each other). Chalk it up to Evil Is Sexy.
  • Freddy Krueger of A Nightmare on Elm Street. The biggest piece of evidence probably being a line from Freddy vs. Jason:
    Dream Girl: His name is Freddy Krueger and he loves children... especially little girls...
  • The Child-Catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, for somewhat obvious reasons. Practically made canon with his Villain Song in the stage musical, which included a line about how the children "won't even need [their] pajamas". It proved so disturbing that the song's been cut from many productions.
  • Little Miss Sunshine: The host of the pageant.
  • Troll 2: Grandpa Seth. He'll touch you in your private area.
  • The creepy hospital guy who licked Sarah Conner's cheek in Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
  • Mike Myers's portrayal of the titular character in The Cat in the Hat.
  • Alien
    • Xenomorphs are often treated this way. They give off a lot off rapey vibes, what with lurking in the shadows to stalk their prey. In the first film, one of them slides its phallic tail up Lambert's leg, and when Ripley is running around in her underwear, the alien is lying in wait, ready to ambush her whilst she's alone and helpless. Then there's the facehuggers, who forcefully impregnate people by latching onto them and forcing eggs down their throat. The implications were intentional, but that doesn't make it any less creepy.
    • It's even worse in Alien: Resurrection, where Ripley is captured by the Queen and forced to engage in weird hybrid sex.
  • Inverted for poor Bucky Barnes since Captain America: The Winter Soldier was released. The Fan Disservice scene in which he's Mind Raped while shirtless and tied to a chair was creepy on multiple levels.
  • Lucas from The Wizard, ever since it came out what happened to the actor.

    Literature 
  • Twilight
    • Edward Cullen is wooing teenage girls everywhere with his Rape Face expression. Face aside, it doesn't help when you're probably over a hundred years old and pick up chicks from a high school cafeteria. And watch them in their sleep. A 117-year-old man dating a teenage girl. Yup, nothing wrong with that...
    • Quil, the werewolf in love with a TWO YEAR OLD! Have you seen the movie posters? He looks 24 and creepy, she looks about 12. With barrettes in her hair.
  • One Sexy Daddy: Despite appearances, and the title, the girl on the cover is not the one who considers Daddy sexy, at least not so far as we know. The Love Interest is an attractive twenty-something gal in the small town to which the titular single father has been exiled... which raises the question: why isn't she on the cover? There's some room for her if she were embracing him from behind while he's holding his five-year-old daughter.
  • Harry Potter
    • Fenrir Greyback's obsession with kids (his tendency to bite them, which turns them into werewolves, and then kidnaps them and raise them to hate normal wizards) has been interpreted by a lot of the fandom as pedophilia. His remark about Hermione — to Ron, when she was about to be tortured, in Deathly Hallows("Reckon Bellatrix'll let me have a bit of the girl when she's finished with her?") only adds to the rapist vibe.
    • Young Tom Riddle seems a heck of a lot like an internet predator. He meets Ginny through a medium (not face to face), gains her trust and eventually starts manipulating her, and then convinces her to meet him in person, leaving her traumatized and drained. Tom also kind of seduced the much older Horace Slughorn. There were also those two younger kids whom he led to a cave while on a field trip. According to the owner of the orphanage they didn't seem to be physically hurt, but they were "never quite the same" after whatever it was that happened in there...
    • On that note, many found Horace Slughorn's fondness for "collecting" children, particularly teenaged boys, a bit suspect.
    • What about Lockhart? A school full of girls drooling over him, and his talent with Memory Charms...
    • Voldemort basically spends the series attacking Harry and messing with his emotions via invading his dreams.
  • The Chronicles of Narnia
    • Mr.Tumnus, who lures a little girl into his cave to kidnap her, and The White Witch, who apparently enjoys invading Edmund's personal space.
    • The White Queen Jadis is just as much a creepy pedo in the books as in the films. She offers Digory (the future Professor Kirk) kingship over Narnia in the first book chronologically—with her as queen, of course. Then she pulls the same stuff with Edmund, and her creepy levels go up to ten because Digory is a better boy to begin with, while Edmund is a surly jerk who doesn't need much tempting—he gets better, of course. Plus The White Queen offers Edmund sweets before giving him a ride in her sleigh. "Want some [candy] little boy?"
  • It: Pennywise The Dancing Clown will eat your children, but only after he terrifies the living daylights out of them since he believes that "you all taste so much better when you're afraid!"
    Pennywise: I'm every nightmare you've ever had! I am your worst dream come true! I'm everything you ever were afraid of!
  • In Stephen King's The Green Mile's William "Billy the Kid" Wharton is this trope. He molests every thing he considers "attractive" and not just that. Unfortunately, this includes jerkasses like Percy, too.
  • Although the novel suggests otherwise, it was heavily implied by fans and movie critics alike that John Rainbird, the main villain in Firestarter has a rather disgusting obsession with 9 year old Charlie McGee. It only further cements it when he talks to or about her. ("She's very beautiful and very young."). However it was not until the less than popular sequel that confirms it.
  • A Series of Unfortunate Events: Count Olaf would just like Violet to know that "You may not be my wife, but you are still my daughter, and—" Just to put it out there: Count Olaf was originally planning on marrying and later consummating his relationship with Violet, who is his adopted 14 year old daughter. Count Olaf? Oh, he's about in his mid-forties, and he has the appearance of an ugly old man. In the second book, he actually makes a non-subtle threat in the form of rubbing a knife up and down her thigh. He also frequently makes comments on Violet's beauty. In a later book, Olaf and his gang were talking about which of the children might have survived a fire. His answer? (Paraphrased) "I hope it's Violet. She's so pretty." All I have to say to that is Yikes!
  • The Wolf from Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods, although a loose analogy to a human "predator" always ends up being referred to/played as a child rapist, even though the only thing he wants to do to the "Little Girl" is literally eat her. If you look closely at the PBS broadcast of the play, Mr Wolf's sexual interpretation is very... ummm... evident.
  • Considering that the above example is partly based on Little Red Riding Hood and other fairy tales (with all the creepy baggage and Grimmification that tends to go with the package), can you really blame people for thinking such? The original Big Bad Wolf has not escaped from this either, but considering he stalks a young girl across a forest then impersonates a trusted member of her family to get closer to her, this sort of thing is more than slightly inevitable. The story was essentially An Aesop about how women should be wary of strangers because they might intend to rape and kill them. There isn't anything memetic about it.
  • Discworld: "Greebo could, in fact, commit sexual harassment simply by sitting very quietly in the next room." (Note that that line isn't a meme. It's a quote from one of the books.)
    • Greebo is, however, a cat (even when magic-ed into human shape), so human sexual morality doesn't really apply to him. Not helped by a common description of him being that of a particularly dominant tomcat - the desire to 'fight or rape anything up to and including a four-horse logging wagon.'
  • Ser Gregor Clegane of A Song of Ice and Fire is a sadistic mass murderer and equally active rapist, but because he's such a devastatingly powerful warrior, the Lannister house does everything it can to keep him from paying for his crimes. While he's nicknamed in canon "The Mountain that Rides", some fans have nicknamed him "The Mountain that Rapes" on account of his proclivities. Fan Nickname aside, this one isn't so much memetic as horrifically canon.
    • Littlefinger's reputation as one grows with each book. He seems to have passed his obsession with Catelyn Stark onto her daughter Sansa, who is described as looking very much like her mother.
    • Joffrey is known to have bullied his little brother Tommen, but it is commonly believed by fans that he molested him as well.
    • Euron Greyjoy is also commonly believed to have molested his younger brother Aeron as a child.
    • Both Ramsay Snow/Bolton and his father Roose. Although much like Gregor, not so much memetic since Roose gives us the unforgettable line, "Don't make me regret the day I raped your mother" to his son. Roose starts to get this reputation as early as the first book, as Robb is creeped out by him. Nearly every viewpoint character that interacts with Roose takes notice of his creepy eyes and features and very low, almost whisper-like voice. At one point in Arya's chapters, he makes her attend him while he is naked and being leeched.
    • Viserys, although much like Gregor Clegane, this one is more or less canon as well. In Dany's very first chapter, he is noted as being incredibly invasive of his sister's personal space. In the tv series, when she is about to be bathed, Viserys "examines" her and caresses her nipples. Dany's facial expressions make it seem like this is a common occurrence for her. The fifth book revealed that Viserys was planning on taking her virginity first before Drogo had a chance to, but Illyrio put guards outside Dany's bedchamber to prevent it from happening.
  • Drake Merwin from Gone, although canon seems to be encouraging this now. In Gone and Hunger, it was mostly just a couple lines he says to/about Diana, but by Plague, he's talking about Brianna enjoying nonspecific torture he's pretending she received from him, winking at Astrid while threatening to "come up and play" with her, and fantasizing about what a long time he'll take with Diana when he gets to her. In short, downright creepy.
    • It becomes officially canon in Light: He has sexual fantasies about Gaia, who has the body of a nine year-old girl. Gaia seems to be largely fine with this, presumably since she could just kill him if things went too far, but it's incredibly creepy for the reader.
  • The Star Wars Expanded Universe gives us Jacen Solo and his second Sith apprentice, Tahiri Veila. They love his first Sith apprentice, Ben Skywalker. Really. That Jacen's mentoring of Ben is played for all its worth like pedophilia doesn't help. Tahiri then actually offers Ben sex in exchange for information!

    Live-Action TV 
  • Quite a few monsters and/or villains in Are You Afraid of the Dark? have aspects of this trope. Notable examples include a silver midget from "Renegade Virus" who stalked a kid and tried to take over his brain ("I think I'm going to enjoy being inside your brain." * Slasher Smile* ), the vampire from "Night Shift", Nosferatu from "Midnight Madness", The Ghastly Grinner, the Crimson Clown (the thing crawled into a kid's bed and tied him up), Peter from "Captured Souls", Zeebo the Clown, Dr. Vink, the life-sized doll from "Dark Music", the spirit that haunted the pool in "Dead Man's Float", Captain Cutter in "Cutters Treasure", Madame Visage of "Many Faces", and many more.
  • A nickelodeon short called "Attack Of The Giant Vulture" gives this sort of vibe to the vulture who preys on a little girl, corners her in a tunnel and tries to eat her and her friends.
  • Beakmans World: Lessee, Mad Scientist, lime green labcoat, literal lab rat... you wonder what Beakman's done to his assistants. Especially Phoebe...
  • Giles from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you got to wonder why no one questioned him always being alone with teenage girls. Lampshaded three times:
    • First one:
    Willow: He's our grown-up friend, but not in the creepy way.
    • Second...
    Giles: Now wait a minute - you think I'm evil... if I bring a group of girls on a camping trip and don't touch them?
    Buffy: When I kissed you? You know I was thinking about Giles, right?
    Spike: (Double Take) You know, I always wondered about you two.
    • Angel too, of course. It's completely canon that he and Buffy consummated when she had just turned seventeen, and were at the stage of regular making out before this, but properly understood, this isn't squicky. The memetic interpretation is that Angel is an Ephebophile who was planning to exploit Buffy from the moment he laid eyes on her. The best fodder for such an interpretation is the flashback scene in which Buffy is just a fifteen-year-old coming out of school, giggling girlishly with her friends, while Angel sits in a car parked in the shadows, watching her without her knowing he exists.
  • The evil puppets from the Angel episode "Smile Time." The episode opens with a puppet on the TV screen asking a child to touch the TV screen reassuring him that it will be okay, then magically sucking the life energy out of him while making moans of pleasure reminiscent of sexual pleasure. A later line in the episode makes it clear that the puppets' explicit goal is to steal the innocence of children and export it into the hell dimensions.
  • The Reaper from Criminal Minds. In his debut, its mentioned he has a thing for teenage girls, and the scenes where he's torturing Hotch in "Faceless, Nameless" have a distinct rape vibe, especially since he's shirtless. In "100", when he's taunting Hotch over the phone, he even says something to the effect of "Tsk tsk. Be gentle. Like I was with you."
  • Doctor Who
    • The Master, most commonly with the Doctor, due to No Sense of Personal Space coupled with epic levels of Foe Yay, though other characters are certainly not immune. Sort of inevitable considering his tendency to spout ridiculously suggestive lines while he asserts his dominance, physically or emotionally, and how his friggin' name is the Master.
    • Especially considering his tendency to tie up and imprison the Doctor, once for an entire year! It would be harder to believe he DIDN'T do anything untoward in all that time...
    • The Doctor is over 900 years old. Rose was a 19-year-old girl. Age difference of roughly nine centuries. I'm saying nothing.
      • The worst part? He's been saying he's 900 for centuries.
      • Seriously, the Doctor does a really good job of avoiding this trope when you think about it.
      • The Dream Lord mocks him for this in "Amy's Choice", saying that he abandons people once they "grow up" and that "the old man prefers the company of the young".
    • Minnie from "The End of Time". Who wouldn't want to grope The Doctor's butt?
    • Amy Pond towards the Doctor.
    • And Captain Jack will get you bi tonight.
  • Dollhouse Bennett seems to enjoy tying people down to her tables and doing horrible things to their brains.
  • Firefly
    • Jubal Early crawls inside you uninvited.
    • And The Operative wants to take you home.
    • The Reavers raping you to death first is the best possible outcome.
  • Creepin' Littlefinger of Game of Thrones, with regard to Sansa Stark. Unfortunately as described under the Literature section this is more or less canon.
  • Will Schuester on Glee often seems a little inappropriate with his students, giving rise to the PedoWill meme. There is also a video about it.
    • Happend to Dave Karofsky after 'Never Been Kissed'. The amount of Karofsky rapes Kurt fanfics after that episode are too many to count.
  • Heroes
    • Chandra Suresh. Chandra×Gabriel and Chandra×Eden are usually considered consensual, if squicky, but Chandra×Mohinder, Chandra×Shanti and, for some bizarre reason, Chandra×Monty? Not so much. It's been mentioned that Mohinder wouldn't have been able to run out and buy last-minute curare to dose Sylar with, so it's become a running joke that it was Chandra's, which he planned to use to drug the specials he lured back to the apartment.
    • Arthur Petrelli 90% of the time this is his fanfic characterization, because he apparently wasn't enough of a douchebag in canon. (The whole "bad-touch power" thing doesn't help.)
    • What about Sylar? Jeez, Zachary Quinto manages to make him multiple types of creepy at once, including serial-killer-creepy, Mommy-issues-creepy, mind-rape-creepy, literal-mind-rape-creepy not-literal-mind-rape-creepy, I-will-find-you creepy, and most of all, rapist creepy. He's even creepy in the flash backs and flash forwards when he's not a serial killer. Zachary Quinto is amazing-ly creepy.
    "Eat your brain? Claire... that's disgusting..."
    • Eric Doyle, the Puppet Master (though that one is canon).
    • Samuel Sullivan from season four qualifies. Let's see, he runs a carnival and plays into the creepy, perverted carny stereotype quite well. He has sexual tension with everyone and is constantly being all touchy-feely with his main hench-people, Lydia and Edgar. Oh, and he does the same thing to Sylar, Hiro, and really almost anyone who visits his carnival. Not to mention, he has Lydia use her empathy power so that he can stalk other specials and recruit them to his carnival. Samuel's memetic molester behavior is parodied in this (safe for work) fanart: [1]
  • House
    • Tritter, with his main victims being House, Wilson or Chase. Helped by David Morse being unbelievably creepy in the role.
    • House himself can be seen as this sometimes. Remember when he asked a little girl if she had hair in her special place? But House manages to avert this quite well, actually. Despite constant sexual comments towards almost everyone and claiming to spend absurd amounts of money on prostitutes, there are about three times in the entire series he has had sex, one of which was a hallucination.
  • Sportacus from LazyTown.
  • Papa Lazarou from The League of Gentlemen, in and out of canon. You're his wife now, Dave.
    "How nice to see you again. All. Grown. Up."
  • The Temple Guards of Legends of the Hidden Temple. They sometimes hide in trees and grab children with their branches. They'd also sometimes hide in armor that the player was supposed to press themselves against and grab them with that.
  • Merlin has Gaius, to an extent, based on several slightly squicky scenes where he asks young men to take of their shirts, and drugs them then sits and watches them fall asleep. He's a physician. The shirt needed to be taken off so that he could assess the damage and possibly apply the necessary medicine. While drugging Arthur was unethical to the extreme, he was ordered to by the king, and, at least, he did do the responsible thing and stay close by in case Arthur had a reaction to the drug. He didn't have to look like he enjoyed it though...
  • Oliver "Creepy Ollie" Leek (also known as Eek!Leek) has this reputation in the Primeval fandom. Try to find any sort of fic where he gets laid and there isn't coercion of some kind involved. Try.
  • Hoyt of Rizzoli & Isles has a lot of creepy rape undertones to his behavior.
  • Supernatural
    • Azazel; if you don't see it, you aren't paying attention. Mostly confirmed in the flashback of how he first met the Winchester family.
    • Alastair. Oh dear.
    • Lucifer. Dear God. His tormenting of Sam in season 5 in regards to wanting to possess him (needing his consent to do so, talking about how he will make Sam 'let him in') was joked about... then in season 7 they became dodgier bunk-buddy comments about making Sam his bitch in "every sense of the term" during the year Sam was trapped in Hell with him. It's now pretty much considered canon by much of the fandom that he tortured Sam sexually.
      Lucifer: That's what I'm talking about, Sam! Real interaction again, I miss that! The rapier wit, the wittier rape....
  • Inversion: Doggie Kruger from Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger will be anyone's bitch — gay, straight, male, female, non-human, non-organic... they will tie him up and have their way with him, any time, any place, any way. He may secretly enjoy it, but he has no choice.
  • Justin from Wizards of Waverly Place is a smart, controlled, studious, mature, flawless young scientist-bookworm, who always takes care and saves his little sister from impending doom. His expression in this image suggests that it's not quite like that.
  • Cossutius from Spartacus Gods Of The Arena, which isn't that far off really. His Establishing Character Moment is when he talks about purity and ugliness coexisting, and proves it by having a dirty and smelly gladiator rape the beautiful Diona. He's clearly excited by it, and decides to anally rape her at the same time. He is repeatedly shown having a fondness for rape, and makes an offhand comment about how none of his slaves are virgins. He became known as Mr. Rape Face.
  • In Star Trek: The Next Generation, many in the fandom believe that the Traveller is clearly lusting after Wesley.
  • Hannibal Lecter from the series of the same name gets a fair bit of this as far as his relationship with Will Graham is concerned. Comments by his actor Mads Mikkelsen, which confirm that he loves Will in his own twisted fashion, don't help. Nor does the fact that Hannibal is Gaslighting Will through a decent part of the series to convince him that he's a serial killer and essentially mentally raping him.
  • An in-universe example is John "Paedo" Kennedy from The Inbetweeners. His reputation is entirely deserved, as he attempts to make moves on Neil constantly.

    Mythology & Ancient Religions 
  • The whole idea of Santa Claus "seeing you when you're sleeping" and "knowing when you're awake"... Well... someone had to feel violated, or at the very least, creeped out, by that whole idea. Which leads to the old joke: "Why is Santa Claus so jolly? Because he knows where all the naughty girls live."
    • Well there's the fact that he likes to have little kids sit in his lap while holding them close, and there's no shortage of reports of pedophile Santas or Easter Bunnies.
      • "'Dear Church Lady: I am shocked at the number of people who bring their children to total strangers in Santa suits, and allow them to hold their young ones firmly on their pelvic regions, offer them candy and whisper, "Don't be afraid to tell me what you really want!" What causes this mass hysteria?' Signed, Elaine."
    • Saint Nicholas, the "template" on which Santa Claus was based, gets this a lot as well. He's "comes for every child" and before the 1980s, it was a common aesop that "naughty kids" would be taken by him as punishment.
    • Hell, even the friggin Easter Bunny gets this treatment.
    • Krampus, a.k.a Beksnickel or the Christmas Devil. An infamous Christmas character back in the 19th century who is starting to get a resurgence in the internet age for his sheer creepiness. Back in the day, most families were too poor to afford presents for their children. Since it wasn't feasible for parents to bribe children with presents for good behavior, people came up with this terrifying alternative. They told stories of Krampus, an overly hairy goat-man with fangs and a long tongue, who would arrive a day before Santa, lure naughty children to him with a trail of food, stuff them into a large basket on his back, and take them away. Prepare to be disturbed.
  • Zeus, probably the Ur-Example.
  • Worse than Zeus was Priapus, whose two defining traits are his permanent erection and his insatiable lust. Signs bordering the lands he protected warned trespassers in vulgar terms not that he would kill them, but that he would rape them. That's not memetic though. That's actual canon with him.
  • Loki. He'll/She'll swing with anyone. And I mean anyone at all.
  • Most post-medieval depictions of demons. That their modern visage was inspired by pagan fertility gods and by the Greek satyrs does not help at all.
  • The demon Moloch. In pop culture, he shows up in an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer after his book is scanned into a computer, attempting to seduce Willow ala-internet predator, and an Expy of his appears in an episode of Teen Titans, where he attempts to seduce Raven. Both times he claims to be a teenager named Malcolm, and preys on the girl's lack of friends, alienating her even further. From what secondhand mythologies say about his mythos, the seduction of young girls was his Modus Operati.

    Pro Wrestling 
  • Randy Savage became this by the Fan Dumb thanks to a certain IWC urban legend that allegedly involved a then-18-year old Stephanie McMahon, and whether if it was rape or consensual is up to debate. They would claim that this is why Savage was apparently blacklisted from the WWE, despite the fact that not only was he interviewed on the inaugural issue of WWE SmackDown! magazine in 2003, but he also had a DVD set dedicated to him released in 2009.
    Randy Savage: ...and uh, Triple H, you already know that I'm gonna bitch-slap ya, and take your girl, Stephanie McMahon!
  • Rick Rude: He'll steal your girl, break her heart and leave you the fool. All the girls go crazy for the ravishing Rude!
  • If The Iron Sheik hates you, he will put you in the Camel Clutch, break your back, fuck you in the ass, and make you humble!
  • The Ultimate Warrior raped Santa Claus. Such is the power of his Destrucity.
  • Edge mentioned in his autobiography, Adam Copeland on Edge, that Bradshaw soaped his ass in a shower. The Fan Dumb picked up on this and implicated that Bradshaw might have raped some wrestlers.
    • Edge will steal your girlfriend. You can't stop it, you can't do anything about it, and she will leave you for him. Just don't even fight it.
  • Goldust. Goldust.
  • Randy Orton: Has developed a reputation in the IWC message boards in that, when in the ring or anywhere near him, one better have their asses secured. The way he interacts with his opponents just encourages it.

    Tabletop Games 
  • Warhammer 40,000
    • Lucius the Eternal is jokingly considered the ultimate rapist by the fandom. Although he's actually a masochistic swordsman, the fact that he serves Slaanesh sort of turns him into this trope. He will penetrate the rear armour of anything with his Rod Lash of Torment. OH YEAH!!
    • On the subject of Slaanesh, Daemonettes have been depicted as raping (or being raped by) almost everyone in the setting at least once. Being daemonic servants of the literal god of perversion and depravity doesn't hurt.
    • The Sisters of Battle are pedophiles thanks to a certain Imageboard's Tabletop Games section.
    • Any and all Dark Eldar are subject to this treatment, and although they are known to rape on occasion they much prefer to torture their victim to death, resurrect them, torture them again and then eat their souls. However, since torture is basically sex for them...
    • Slaanesh him/herself is usually portrayed this way by certain Imageboards, usually being depicted dressed like Dr. Frank-N-Furter and deliberately trying to get anybody entering his/her domain to become slaves to him/her, and gets a massive turn-on when asked to go fuck him/herself with a chainsword.
  • Folca (a minor daemonic harbinger from Pathfinder) has dominion over "abduction, strangers, and sweets," and his favorite weapon is the net. Certain dark corners of the fandom consider him Golarion's Pedobear.

    Toys 
  • Mr. Bucket wants you to put balls in his mouth.
  • See Toy Story example above (in movies) for the creepy Woody action figure.
    • Recently, Kaiyodo- the company that made the figure- reissued the figure but with a different face and accessories, averting the trope.
    • Except it's announced that it'll be re-released once again with those set of eyes, as of info from 08/2013......

    Theater 
  • The Wolf in Into the Woods. There are several reasons for this; the fact that he seems much older than Little Red Riding Hood (due to the actor playing him), the weird "walking in place" thing he does on stage, him singing a song about consuming Red and one other thing... HIS FURRY PENIS IS VISIBLE DURING THE ENTIRE SONG!
    • The original version of Little Red Ridding Hood did have a distinct sexual vibe to it, the wolf was in many ways a sexual predator.
  • Inverted with Florinda in The Rover. Almost every male character tries to rape her at some point, although most of them didn't know it was her at the time, so they're Easily Forgiven. They only thought they were raping a peasant girl, so that's okay.
  • Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street: Beadle Bamford. Granted, he does spend most of his stage/screentime with canon rapist Judge Turpin. Also, he's really really creepy in the movie. Then there's his cane, which he can make longer or shorter because it folds up. Ew... (And Turpin is, in some circles, a memetic Anthony-rapist. Also creepily movie-canon.) Turpin basically calls Anthony a slut when he first meets him. Being a sailor, he Really Gets Around. This scene also has a pretty heavy Turpin-creeping-on-the-physically-small-longhaired-pretty-Anthony vibe, at least in the film. Showing a victim porn (which is basically what he's doing) is a tactic of real life molesters. Not to mention his disturbingly excited look when he watches Judge Turpin rape Sweeney's wife.

    Web Comics 
  • In-universe example: In Ghastly's Ghastly Comic, there was a debate over whether it would be more frightening to be raped by Christopher Walken or John Malkovich, and how it might be possible to stop them.
  • Homestuck
    • The fandom gave this treatment to sober!Gamzee. The rapefics were already hitting the web just a few days after his Face-Heel Turn. More recently, he's also become something of a Memetic Molestee, due to his genetic connections to even scarier people (see Hivefled) and a canonical Mind Rape at Aranea's hands.
    • Doc Scratch seems to be going this way too, due to his interactions with Rose and Jade. The revelation that he is part Cal probably helped... This has persisted even after the revelation that he is not anatomically correct. It then gets even worse in the 08/07/11 updates. Apparently 1. he's been keeping Aradia's ancestor the Handmaid locked up in his apartment, 2. she's lost her furniture privileges before, 3. she does not want to be there 4. she's been raised by Doc Scratch her whole life.
    • Eridan also gets this treatment, due to in canon being a Jerkass who tries to get with anyone who'll take him with a massive Entitled to Have You complex, not to mention that he kills the girl who rejects him with his behavior in fanon often being upgraded to this trope. Later receives a Fandom Nod with his ancestor, Cronus, who takes the fanon portrayal of Eridan and runs with it making Cronus an actual molester who actually hits on Eridan himself, even though Eridan is in fact his genetic fathernote - though this has extremely Squicky connotations to humans, trolls actually have no incest taboo (due to Bizarre Alien Reproduction). Cronus is still creepy though.
    • To a much lesser extent than the above, Terezi also gets this treatment in some fanart due to her habit of licking things, since after going blind she learned how to taste colors.
    • The Condesce also gets this treatment, possibly for kidnapping Roxy.

    Web Original 

    Western Animation 
  • There's a disturbing scene in the He-man episode Prince Adam No More with a tentacle monster implied to be this. Mer-man gets shoved into a cell with it at one point, and can be clearly seen adjusting his, uh, loincloth after emerging a few minutes later. What the hell happened in that cell?!!
    • Whiplash might qualify in the 1980s cartoon as well. Between him trying to keep a Bird-Woman as a 'pet' in Betrayal Of Stratos and making outright LEWD comments to Trap-Jaw in Hunt For He-man, if he's not this he's certainly a Depraved Bisexual (or a repressed homomsexual in denial. Whichever works.).
  • Mr. Dink, the creepy next door neighbor from Doug fits this trope to a T.
  • There's a distinct pattern of who got this treatment (molester and victim) on Avatar: The Last Airbender during the initial airings of each season:
    • Season 1: Zuko-->Katara; Zhao-->Katara
    • Season 2: Azula—>Everyone
    • Season 3: Surge in Azula—>Everyone;
    • There are a few fanworks out there involving Katara using her bloodbending for this purpose, most commonly on Zuko.
    • On a related note, there's a meme about Toph to the effect of "I have learned that pedophilia is OK if it's for someone who would have an easier time raping you."
    • Much of fandom take the opposite view of Zuko, declaring that "the question is not if Zuko will be on top or on bottom, the question is if he will be facing up or facing down."
      • Zuko wants you to bring him your elderly! And he wants to touch little boys and tween girls while they are unconscious.
    • And now Amon in The Legend of Korra. The events of "The Revelation" and "The Voice in the Night" have only emphasized the point. And then there was that whole scene where Amon takes away Tahno's bending while Tahno's begging Amon not to do it and offering to give Amon "anything" in exchange.
    • Tahno will give you some "private lessons".
    • Tarrlok has become this as of the events of "When Extremes Meet", when it's revealed that he is a bloodbender and he uses his creepy powers to kidnap Korra. In the season finale, it's revealed that Amon and Tarrlok are actually brothers, so memetic molester behavior must run in the family. Not to mention, Amon is also a bloodbender.
    • Book 2 has one in Eska, as Bolin is dismayed to find out. My feeble little turtleduck...
  • Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Handbanana is going to see you. Tonight.
    • This may be the only example ever where that is exactly what he is like in the actual shows, except there he only does it to Carl.
    • Hey he's just a dog he only know words like "ball", "Good"... and RAPE
    • Does Handbanana count as a memetic molester when his canon motivation is actually molestation?
      • Carl himself has some 'rape-ie' tendencies.
  • Vlad in Danny Phantom. Come on now. Vlad's first appearance alone has him creeping into Danny's room just watching the boy struggle in his sleep, not to mention the multiple attempts Vlad has done to try luring Danny into the dark side which when taken in a different context, it sounds almost seductive. And of course there's the episode "Eye for an Eye" where Vlad gives such quotes as ("I'm rubbing your nose in this mess you made, Daniel, doesn't it smell yummy?" and "You forgot to take your supplements, have a dose of vitamin-ME!" for example). Then there's the fact Vlad made a prepubescent female clone of him... whom he only planned to use to perfect a male clone.
    • Spectra as well given that she's basically a succubus and dominatrix.
  • Metalocalypse
    • Seth. Specifically, his creepy, unintelligible breathy mumble of a voice and constant swearing under his breath.
    • Dr. Rockzo also counts as this. First, he is a clown. Second, since the Dory McLean incident he's a canon Ephebophile. Lastly: Murderface. Keys. Pocket. Awkward.
      "I woke up with a clown's hand in my pants. That's what I did today."
  • Tarantulus from Beast Wars. Two quotes specifically "Surprise!" to Rattrap after ambushing him, and "My filters will adjust; it is the act I enjoy more than the nourishment," to a Bound and Gagged Cheetor.
  • Slade from Teen Titans is always joked about being an Ephebophile, being an adult man obsessed with teenage heroes Robin, Terra, and Raven. Plus he's a serial mind-rapist in canon.
    • In the comics canon, Slade actually was having a sexual relationship with Terra, who was sixteen at the time.
  • Transformers Animated Lockdown. His hobby involves strapping people to tables and taking parts off them, and there's a good chance he'll do other things while you're down there.
  • Transformers Prime
    • Airachnid, mostly due to her... uncomfortable obsession with and behavior towards Jack (even referring to him as "my Jack"). Like Lockdown, she's made a hobby out of keeping "trophies" from her various hunting exploits.
    • Knock Out seems to straddle the line between this and Memetic Sex God.
  • Ed, Edd n Eddy has the Kanker Sisters.
  • Dr. Rabbit. As stated by one Youtube Pooper, it's as if they were practically begging for someone to edit the cartoon to make him seem like a pederast.
  • In the old Popeye cartoons, Bluto/Brutus would often find himself chasing Olive before Popeye utterly destroys him. Did he really just want to kiss her, like he always said? His lecherous attitude, combined with Olive's panicky reaction ('''HELP! HELP!''') suggests otherwise.
    • A forced kiss is bad enough, and irrespective of his real intentions she probably concludes from his disregard for her opinion that he will rape her, too.
  • Code Lyoko: William's Rape Face is a fairly minor example.
  • Drew Pickles from Rugrats is one of the best-known examples, thanks to YouTube videos.
    Drew: Hello, my name is Drew Pickles and I am really really gay.

    Drew: Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha Bag. That was swell.
  • Miss Bitters of Invader Zim. Her body has a "snake-like" quality, and is animated as such that it seems she can "slither" around, and sticks out a forked tongue while hissing. Occasionally she even emerges out of other people's shadows and even sucks people into her own. It bears mention that most of the kids in her class are no more than ten years old.
  • Freako the Clown from the Mighty Max episode "The Clown Without Pity." That creepy clown sure had a penchant for attacking children and invading Max's personal space.
  • Van Kleiss, the Big Bad of Generator Rex put his hand through Rex's chest in the first episode, looks a lot like Orochimaru (see above), and has a lot of weird undertones in his behavior.
  • Not as popular as Chris Hansen, but another memetic molester loister would be the Paedofinder General from Monkey Dust.
  • Xeexi from Sym-Bionic Titan has become such. This came from his specific form of Mind Rape, where he jams his entire body down people's throats. The hitch is: He only rapes Lance. Lance, and only Lance. "Lance was raped by a space squid and doesn't want to talk about it." is an ongoing joke in the fandom, and it's even played with on the Twitter page someone set up for him.
  • The Simpsons: The Rich Texan's daughter, Paris Texan, loves her some sweet, sweet shota.
  • My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
    • Chrysalis, the Changeling Queen, has also gotten this out the wazoo in a very short amount of time. Although in her case it's not as much of an exaggeration, considering she's basically a G-Rated succubus.
  • Adventure Time has the Ice King. He constantly tries to kidnap princesses and force them to marry him. He's completely insane, and has no qualms about physically brainwashing princesses into wanting to marry him, traumatizing them, or even stealing the body parts of various princesses so he can make a new princess for himself!
    • Lemongrab is turning out to be this. When the synopsis of "You Made Me!" revealed that Lemongrab came back to the Candy Kingdom to peep on Princess Bubblegum while she's sleeping (she wasn't pleased), the phrase LEMONGRAB WATCHES YOU WHILE YOU SLEEP became fairly popular. He's also got those hella creepy, expressionless eyes.
    • Then there's this deer. Those hands...
  • Archer: Doctor Krieger is one both in and out of universe. Canonically, he is apparently a "food rapist" and his van has been coined the "SS Date Rape" note 
  • Thundercats 2011: Tygra will ring your bell, whether you want him to or not.
  • Lola Bunny's incarnation in The Looney Tunes Show turns out to be quite a creeper, especially for Bugs Bunny.
  • Mission Hill: Phew, crazy wiki out there, huh? Well, don't let it get you down, editor, and... penis penis penis penis
  • Pepe Le Pew, always stalking after cats, holding them close and planting forceful kisses on them... you know the deal. And Penelope Pussycat one of his victims turns into this on three occasions when she turns the tables on Pepe and pursues him.
  • Zeb from the My Little Pony And Friends episode "Bright Lights" is becoming this. He's a sketchy anthro zebra who looks even more out of place among the ponies, who are non-anthro Talking Animals. He's supposed to seem like a sleazy talent agent, but he comes off looking more like a filly-molester.
  • SpongeBob SquarePants has had plenty of rape faces. Especially here. "I've been waiting for you Patrick!" *Laughing Mad*
  • Codename: Kids Next Door
    • Knightbrace seems to be becoming this. Knightbrace is a wannabe dentist who was rejected by the ADA for being too crazy. He is shown stalking the streets, ambushing children, and mutilating their mouths in scenes that are just full of Does This Remind You of Anything?.
    • And then there's the seriously creepy Delightful Children and their obsession with defeating the Kids Next Door and making them exactly like them. Their subtext with Numbuh 1 is the defintion of No Yay.
    • Count Spankulot. This may be why his character changed significantly in later episodes.
  • Him from The Powerpuff Girls.
  • From the Xiaolin Showdown Rogues Gallery, we have plenty of people messing with young boys:
    • Season 1: Wuya, who spends the bulk of this time as a ghost living in a delicate teen genius' home and flying through him, to Jack's obvious discomfort. When she recruits her next partner, Raimundo, it's by feeding off feelings of inadequacy and promising him anything he wants, and then she gets a drop-dead-gorgeous body. There's enough sexy voice and hugging to make you wonder what she really meant by "learn how to play air hockey." For added fun, she spends the rest of the series jumping between partners.
    • Season 2 later gives us Chase Young, who spends a bulk of his screentime trying to get Omi to pull a Face-Heel Turn. When he succeeds, he takes Omi's Essence and turns him into a cat. As he does to all warriors he defeats, almost including his former best friend. The "I just felt like having my ear scratched" scene does not help. Or taking young, Chi-drained monks and having them do chores, including washing his underwear. Which, like everything else Chase wears, has spikes pop out.
    • Season 3 introduces Hannibal Roy Bean, who loves manipulating everyone from young monks to Jack Spicer. This includes trying to recruit Raimundo through the boy's feelings of inadequacy and mistreatment. When it doesn't work, Bean spends the next episode Mind Raping him using the Shadow of Fear. This includes posing as both Kimiko and Rai's movie theatre drink. Did we mention that there's also a Chibi!Rai running around the dream world as the embodiment of his being scared?
  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Ahsoka seems to run into these at least Once a Season. In the first season, General Grievous stalked her in a dark ware-room. In the second, Cad Bane took her hostage by electrocuting and handcuffing her, then he caressed the side of her head in a rather creepy way before taking her padawan braid. In Season 3, she had been kidnapped by the Son during the Mortis trilogy (and then quickly corrupted into being his servant, "You are mine now.") and then an entire group of Trandoshan hunters, who have been hunting other Jedi children for quite some time by that point. At one point their leader even told her that she'd be a prized trophy in his collection. In Season 4, she ran into Cad Bane again, who left promising her a dance (meaning fight) at another time. In Season 5, Hondo captures her and treats her like she's going to be sold as a Sex Slave in the black market while caressing her multiple times.
  • The Daria fandom has Skylar Feldman, for some reason. He was one of Quinn's main Guys of the Week in "Pinch Sitter," with the distinguishing trait of being as conceited as she is. For some reason fans decided to take his smarmy personality and exchange it for one obsessed with rape and murder.
    • For a straighter example, there was that one substitute teacher who loved telling Quinn's friends about his Lolita-style novel whilst stroking their hair.
  • Niblet from Pound Puppies (2010) has become this thanks to the "Secret, but fun!"/secret butt fun meme.
  • Grunkle Stan from Gravity Falls has achieved this status in some corners of the internet, due in no small part to his much-quoted line, "Now who wants to put on some blindfolds and get into my car?"
  • From the Thomas the Tank Engine episode "Pop Goes The Diesel", Duck has a rather unsettling harlequin-like grin which fans have dubbed as his "rape face". Even so, one of the pictures of the episode shows him with this same expression, but only looking directly at the viewer.
  • Who else but Quagmire?
  • Dr. Viper in SWAT Kats, what with all the tail-grabbing, coiling and the fact he just about gets off to mutating victims.


Alternative Title(s):

Memetic Rapist
