Pervert Revenge Mode
: Please, just one grope! *clang* Makoto
- *whunch* Makoto
: -need to die.
Oh no! You've just had an Accidental Pervert
moment and now a girl is after you! And not in a good way! You may have seen her naked, grabbed somewhere
she doesn't like, or anything on a similar line. And now you are REALLY in for it!
Can result in an instant smack-down, or possibly a game of hide and seek where the hider is you and the seeker has a Hyperspace Mallet
or some other implement.
Not to be confused with the Unprovoked Pervert Payback
, where a girl gets set to Pervert Revenge Mode for no apparent reason. Can be subverted if the man is known to be gay by the attacker, or is a girl in disguise, etc. Generally the result of Accidental Pervert
, or the Covert Pervert
(Who may actually deserve his comeuppance!). Even the Chivalrous Pervert
may get battered occasionally. See also: Double Standard
. A common tactic of the Tsundere
- Love Hina - LOTS
- It gets so ridiculous that later in the anime series, Keitaro lampshades that he's probably invulnerable due to building up a resistance from constantly getting Megaton Punch'd by Naru.
- About midway through the manga, Keitaro becomes extremely focused on his studies...so much so, that he isn't really thinking about anything else, and due to some bizarre inversion of the Centipede's Dilemma, completely stops clumsily tripping over things and accidentally groping Naru and the other girls. For some equally bizarre reason (perhaps a variation of We Want Our Jerk Back?), they miss this facet of Keitaro's personality, and start placing banana peels around the house for him to hopefully slip on.
- Fruits Basket
- Mazinger Z:
- Sayaka did not take kindly to being spied on in the anime series. One example happened in the Mazinger vs Great General of Darkness movie, when Kouji walked in on her when she was having a shower, and she slapped him.
- Subverted in the original manga. Kouji and Sayaka saw each other naked accidentally... and they just apologized each other calmly (blushing the whole time). It was especially funny because it was Sayaka who walked in on Kouji.
- Ranma Saotome of Ranma ½ gets this treatment from almost every girl in the series at some point. Especially Akane, since it was written that way to create even more moments of sexual tension.
- To Love-Ru: Yuuki Rito. No matter how far the situation leans in his favor, if Rito does something slightly perverted around Yami, accidental or not, she will beat the crap out of the poor guy. It doesn't help that this happens all the time.
- Zero no Tsukaima in which Louise does this to Saito at least three times every episode.
- Neon Genesis Evangelion:
- The entire female student body in the first episode of Ladies Vs Butlers, who Akiharu accidentally manages to molest through bizarrely contrived but wholly innocent coincidence, to the point of an Overly Long Gag. Amongst them are Covert Pervert and brazenly perverted girls, who chase him not for revenge but because they wanted more than a grope.
- Parodied in Nichijou. Where in another anime Sasahara doing something perverted would result in a Armour-Piercing Slap or possibly an offscreen beatdown, Misato's response is to shoot him with anything from a pistol to a rocket launcher. Sasahara usually shrugs it off.
- Infinite Stratos takes that further. When Dunois reveals her real gender and the rest of the class realises Ichika was roommates with her, Rin comes after him in her Powered Armor and fires a full-powered Impact Cannon blast at his head. Unusually, the situation is quickly defused by Laura blocking the shot then promptly stealing a kiss from Ichika and declaring him her "bride" in front of everyone. Cue Big "WHAT?!" from everyone.
- In Naruto it's said that Jiraiya has been near death three times and one of those times was stated when he peeped on Tsuande and it wasn't pretty.
- This trope is the most frequent cause of death for Sakura, the male lead of Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan. The reason we say "frequent" is because Dokuro-chan, the title character, always brings Sakura back after killing him.
- Eita Touga of 12 Beast is oftentimes the victim of this. His hands have an almost magnetic attraction to all the wrong places on a woman's body.
- Kimihito Kurusu was once bucked in the face by Centaurea in Daily Life with Monster Girl after unknowingly walking in on her in the shower. Unlike most examples, she apologizes.
- In the Kämpfer manga: Akane takes Natsuru’s Thanks for the Mammary as a sign he has a death wish and sends him out to attract the Schwert’s attacks.
- In Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team, protagonist Shiro Amada accidentally comes across a teenage girl skinny-dipping in a jungle pool while he's lost and desperate for water. When his (borrowed) watch starts beeping, she immediately goes for a gun and starts shooting.
- Happens a lot to Touma in A Certain Magical Index, mostly at the teeth of Index. The most spectacular example occurs when he winds up holding a cell phone with camera in the locker room of an all-girls school in a female-only section of town during gym class and spends the next several hours dodging angry mobs,
- Minami-ke deconstructs this trope: When Natsuki accidentally gropes Haruka in front of the class during school hours, she all but explains outright that she has to be seen replying to it in order to maintain their public images and stop any wayward rumours, and apologises in advance. Natsuki makes it clear he's aware of her dilemma and consents to 'taking responsibility', so Haruka visibly punches him in response to the 'perversion'. It is clear neither side have any hard feelings over it and Haruka would likely have let it pass if it happened in private.
- A very rare yuri example occurs in El-Hazard 2, where Depraved Homosexual Fatora uses a combination of the cover of nightfall and her resemblance to Makoto to steal the Sacred First Kiss from fire-wielding priestess Shayla-Shayla, who has an unrequited crush on Makoto. When Shayla realizes what happened, she attacks Fatora in a rage.
- Evangelion 303: In chapter 4 Shinji goes to the bathroom... not knowing that Asuka has not left his home yet, and she is taking a shower. He walks on her right when she is towelling herself, and her reaction is... predictable.
- The protagonist of Sleeping with the Girls is rather upset to discover that the laws of physics in the worlds he visits actually make this a physical law. Especially problematic when he keeps materialising in the beds of Tsunderes and he doesn't have the ability to shrug off Megaton Punches.
- It's common in a Naruto for Jiraiya or Naruto usually it's the latter exposes the former.
- In Ben's New Look Gwen goes to this when Ben gets caught attempting to peep on a woman, and gets revenge by dressing Ben up as a girl.
- The Ur Example is the Greek story of the hunter Actaeon, who stumbled across the goddess Artemis bathing nude in the forest. Actaeon was astounded by her beauty, but Artemis (an eternal virgin) was outraged. In her anger, she turned Actaeon into a stag and he was torn apart by his own dogs.
- Dead or Alive: Lei-Fang kicks an Accidental Pervert off a moving train -possibly killing him and definitely leaving him stranded and injured- simply for bumping into her. It's Played for Laughs, of course, but considering that Lei-Fang's whole motivation for entering the DOA tournament was to beat up a guy who saved her life years ago, it's entirely possible that she's really just a dangerous lunatic turned loose on society.
- Asuka's ending in Tekken 5 has her deliver a Megaton Punch to Jin after he accidentally faceplants into her chest, knocking him into a mountain.
- Persona 3 Hell hath no fury like a couple of girls intruded upon their visit to the hot springs. You can be a Male Protagonist and try to escape or, with the Updated Re-release, be a female protagonist and try to find the guys.
- Elh, after the second Shower of Awkward in Solatorobo, spends considerably more time punching Red and telling him what an idiot he is. Considering it's actually all in Red's mind, he technically went vengeful on himself.
- In Metal Gear Solid 4, this is FROG's response when you try to fondle her chest.
- In BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, quite hilariously, the Kagura vs. Makoto special match intro. The fight starts because he tries to cop a feel.
- Happens quite often in the story as well. In one of the more hilarious instances, Kagura rescues Makoto from Tsubaki by tricking the latter that he's been ordered to escort Makoto into custody. Once they're both safely away:
Makoto: "By the way, Kagura, would you please untie me already?"
Kagura: "Why? You look great like that."
Kagura: "Still... Worth it..." *thud*
- Star Ocean The Last Hope: Edge just has this way of getting into Accidental Pervert situations with Reimi. Reimi, being very much a Tsundere, doesn't react well when he does this...
- Little Busters!: Despite there being a few cases of Riki getting accidentally caught in perverted situations, Kurugaya, who is usually The Tease, is the only girl to initiate this - when he accidentally touches her boobs in the dark she very roughly pushes him back, and even then she admits it was an instinctive response. Otherwise, when he ends up with his hand on their chests Mio admits she was at fault for running and falling in the first place and Haruka is already dating him and doesn't mind, and while Komari gets very flustered both times he accidentally sees her panties she doesn't blame him at all.
