This is when a female character is regularly used for physical comedy. She might regularly suffer AmusingInjuries, get CoveredInGunge, receive a PieInTheFace, get PantyShot for ComedicUnderwearExposure, and have other slapstick tropes done to her. She is usually the ButtMonkey or ChewToy of the show and what happens to the girl is PlayedForLaughs.

It is rare to see women in these roles because of the DoubleStandard seen in things like BeautyIsNeverTarnished, WouldntHitAGirl and DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale. Also, due to all of these things, the women who do fit this trope are more likely to be amusingly injured by other women or their own clumsiness than by men.

With the passage of time, we both already have seen and will continue to see increasingly fewer restrictions on the use of this trope. Even [[BeautyIsNeverTarnished being physically attractive]] does not guarantee immunity, since the BrainlessBeauty is always an AcceptableTarget. If the character is an IronButtMonkey, however, [[PositiveDiscrimination she'll tend to be a lot tougher if she's a woman than if she's a man]]. A woman who gets [[EyeScream poked in the eye with a sharp stick]] will likely experience only a (temporary) loss of dignity; a man who gets poked in the eye with a sharp stick will have to wear an eyepatch. And it's still quite rare to see a female character [[BlackComedy comedically killed]], unless she's [[AssholeVictim particularly repellent]].

None of this is to suggest the men are getting away unscathed, by the way; if slapstick was [[UnfortunateImplications only targeting the ladies]] then it would in fact know gender.

Exception: InstantSoprano ''always'' Knows Gender, except in blatant parodies of that trope.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'': Panty and Stocking go through lots of AmusingInjuries.
** A perfect example would be in the first part of Episode 3, when the wolf ghost [[BeTheBall compresses the both of them into a ball shape]] and throws them through a basketball hoop, and then the two are briefly seen SquashedFlat afterwards.
** Panty is hit by a barrage of different humiliating slapstick stunts at the beginning of Episode 13, all in a row, including struck by lightning (complete with XRaySparks) and left with AshFace.
* All the girls of ACROSS in ''Manga/ExcelSaga''. Excel and Elgala mostly get AmusingInjuries, while Hyatt just [[TheyKilledKennyAgain dies a lot]].
* ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'':
** Kiyone from ''Anime/TenchiUniverse'' endures constant humiliation due to being partnered with Mihoshi, who is the personification of ditz.
** Many female characters in this franchise are also qualified for this trope. Particularly Ryoko, Mihoshi and Sasami as Anime/PrettySammy.
* ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'' actually has at least two: PsychoLesbian LovableSexManiac Kuroko and AlphaBitch Kongo.
* Mutsumune from ''Anime/GetsumenToHeikiMina'' gets a lot of slapstick stuff happen to her
* Shiina from ''[[LightNovel/NogizakaHarukaNoHimitsu The Secret of Haruka Nogizaka]]'' has a tendency to clumsily stumble into {{Fanservice}}y Panty Shot and NotWhatItLooksLike situations that are played for laughs at her expense.
* Ryuubi, the {{Meganekko}} with GagBoobs, from ''Manga/IkkiTousen'' regularly finds herself in these situations. If she really is in danger, though, her dragon will come out.
* In ''Anime/{{Yatterman}}'', villainess Doronjo is punished for her failure in just about every episode. Punishments range from siccing a horde of pinching crabs on her to blasting her with meteorites and nuclear missiles. The 2008 remake keeps this tradition alive.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' loves this trope.
** Jessie, amongst other female villains (and even protagonists), gets attacked by Pokémon on a regular basis.
** Misty gets this from time to time. One noticeable example was in "Pokémon Fashion Flash." In the course of that episode, Misty got burned in the face by Vulpix's fire breath, got burned by Vulpix's ''huge Fire Spin'' at the climax, {{A|rsonMurderAndJaywalking}}ND got a ridiculous face paint makeover that looked so bad, it had Ash and Brock (''especially'' [[VitriolicBestBuds Ash]]) laughing themselves half to death when they saw it!
** Zigzagged with May. Like the other female companions, she suffers occasional AmusingInjuries. However a lot of her DamselInDistress moments seem to lampshade her lack of ToonPhysics. Her almost falling down the exact same cliff Team Rocket passively shot down Wile E Coyote-style was completely PlayedForDrama.
* In ''Anime/GenjiTsuushinAgedama'', a 1991 parody anime, villainess Kuki Rei frequently catches fire, falls down pits and gets caught in explosions.
* The ''Manga/FairyTail'' anime/manga doles out some humorous abuse to protagonist Lucy Heartfilia, including a pillow to the face that sends her through a door and into a rock outside, and various evil women like Angel, whose post-battle struggle for survival is a bit of a joke.
** In [[EstablishingSeriesMoment the second episode]], resident NiceGirl Mirajane is sent sprawling by her brother, [[GrievousHarmWithABody who'd been sent flying from the]] BigBallOfViolence, and she cheerfully continues talking to Lucy about how much fun the brawls are before passing out.
* ''Manga/MajinTanteiNougamiNeuro'' absolutely champions this trope, as Neuro himself frequently abuses his female cohort Katsuragi Yako by stretching her body into unnatural positions, electrocuting her, making her eat grass, and just generally roughing her up. One omake is actually a long list of ways to humorously torture a recently-defeated female villain.
* The 1973 manga ''Manga/DororonEnmaKun'' placed the literal ice princess, Yukiko Hime, on the receiving end of a large amount of comical abuse from friends and foes alike. When a monster puts her into a deep sleep, Enma wastes no time attempting to wake her through outrageous beatings and whippings.
* ''Manga/DoctorSlump'' has the various heroines and villainesses getting knocked around quite frequently. Even Slump's love interest, Midori, gets boulders dropped on her and temporarily loses a few teeth.
* To a lesser degree with ''Manga/DragonBall'', as it is not quite a gag series.
** Chi-Chi in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', especially around Goku. Since she is not as strong as Goku yet [[MadeOfIron strong enough to take physical harm]]; she has been slapped by Goku through the side of their house, through several boulders and a tree, and when he has healed from his heart disease and she went out to greet him, he accidentally threw her high into the air.
* Guu from ''[[Anime/HareGuu Haré+Guu]]'' is chopping vegetables in class and ends up cutting her RubberHoseLimbs into pieces. Unfazed she gathers the pieces up and swallows them, quickly growing a new arm much to [[OnlySaneMan Haré's]] horror. In a much later OAV, Guu [[RealityWarper somehow shows]] up in a horror movie and her smirking head gets decapitated.
* ''Manga/{{Mitsudomoe}}'' is, put simply, a series with lots of slapstick involving little girls. Mitsuba gets it the worst.
* ''Manga/NagasareteAirantou'' distributes the pain pretty fairly. Though male protagonist Ikuto gets hurt more consistently, girls Ayane, Rin and Mikoto get knocked around fairly often as well.
** Ayane in particular gets it so bad that one chapter featured her picking up a broom that caused accidents to happen to whoever used it. She completely failed to notice its effects because they were no different from a regular day for her.
* Achakura and Haruhi in ''Manga/HaruhiChan''. Others too (everyone's an Abusable Cutie) but they seem the most prone to it.
* ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' has several scenes of this, Yomi and Tomo hit each other, Chiyo and Osaka get bonked a lot, and even Sakaki is always bit on the hand by cats. Of course, this is all girl-on-girl (or animal-on-girl) slapstick. Yukari-sensei is also placed on the receiving end of some physical comedy courtesy of Tomo. As punishment, Yukari spends the next several minutes slapping Tomo around with a lunch tray in each hand.
* In ''Manga/{{Magikano}}'', the main male character, Haruo, douse take some abuse especially in the form of a mind erasing hammer. But that pales in comparison to what the Yandears who are (unknowingly to him) fighting for his attention do to each other.
* Kelly from ''Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'' is most definitely the series' human [[TheChewToy Chew Toy]]. She's not stupid or clumsy, just ''incredibly'' unlucky. Usually the funny stuff happens to her property rather than her, but she's still been the victim of the occasional damage. She is almost always caught up in the conflicts of the (mostly male) Transformers. Not even running to the middle of the world's most remote desert moves her out of the way of the conflict!!
* Hotori from ''Manga/SoredemoMachiWaMawatteiru'' falls victim a large number of unfortunate mishaps. A little sneeze sends her face-first into a cup of coffee, and she trips while trying to clean it up, getting a bucket stuck on her head.
* With its all-female cast, it's no surprise that this trope should apply to ''Manga/StrawberryMarshmallow''. This is the main reason why the other girls keep [[AttentionWhore Miu]] [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Matsuoka]] around; however, no-one in the show is immune to the slapstick.
* Also happens with frequency in ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'', usually featuring Ryuunosuke, Benten, Ran and the Spice Girls (No, not THOSE Music/SpiceGirls).
* One particularly well-done male-to-female example is in ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'' when Ryuuji accidentally hits Taiga in the head with a broom. ''It's hilarious''.
* ''Anime/TanteiOperaMilkyHolmes'', absurd as it is, heaps slapstick on everybody, with the heroines getting it the hardest, though G4 (particularly Kokoro) get theirs too.
* [[LovableSexManiac Kanako]] [[ButtMonkey Miyamae]] from ''Manga/MariaHolic'' takes some slapstick pain, including getting trampled by a schoolgirl stampede, which after provides her with the obligatory AmusingInjuries.
* ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' often subjects its female characters to slapstick, every semi-important woman that appears in the show, suffers it sooner or later (even [[TheMedic Sylphiel]] was blasted by Lina in one occasion). [[CuteClumsyGirl Amelia]] is a notable one.
* Nodame from ''Manga/NodameCantabile'' is part of a BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine with other main character Chiaki, and the usual {{Tsundere}} slapstick violence is gender-inverted.
* Happens in ''Manga/DragonHalf'', where King Siva drops a huge weight ''on his own daughter Vina's head''. The scene is funny, but it also shows that the two of them are utterly [[EvilIsHammy horrible people]]. [[spoiler: Vina's [[HalfHumanHybrid half-slime]], so she survives because she's NighInvulnerable. She then attempts to smother her father once she escapes.]]
* The unlucky ChineseGirl protagonist of the weird anime ''Anime/IppatsuKikimusume'' gets involved in a whole lot of this.
* ''Anime/AngelBeats'' has Hinata's assaults on Yui be played just as much for laughs as hers on him.
* Sanae from ''Manga/ShinryakuIkaMusume'' gets bloody beaten up a lot by the eponymus protagonist, and she [[TooKinkyToTorture enjoys it]].
* ''Anime/RuneSoldierLouie'': [[{{Shorttank}} Merrill]] often suffers humiliation, due to the lengths she'll go to in order to satisfy her greed.
** In episode 6, she tries attacking a clay golem with a flying kick in an attempt to [[spoiler: save her money jar]], but gets sucked into its body instead. Then it [[spoiler: squats and shits her back out]]. She finally resorts to a combination of [[CryCute tears]] and [[PuppyDogEyes doe eyes]], which doesn't work either. The golem simply grabs her by her head and nonchalantly chucks her over its shoulder (seen from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RYyc5TAa9Q 14:27-16:31, here).]]
** In another episode, she steals and eats a bunch of laxative-laced cookies that some of Louie's detractors had given him.
* ''Anime/SailorMoon'' frequently featured slapstick gags with the main female cast as the victims. Usagi was the most common victim, due to her extreme clumsiness getting her hurt and general YouSuck nature as a character, but plenty of gags featured the rest of the cast as well. Ironically, Mamoru/Tuxedo Mask, the only male human in the regular cast, was the ''least'' likely to be on the receiving end of the show's physical comedy until the notably more serious and poised Outer Senshi were introduced, suggesting it had more to do with finesse and grace than anything.
* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', main female protagonist Asuna regularly takes the chance to smack about one or two other girls in their sillier or more lecherous moments, but none so much as ElegantGothicLolita Vampire Evangeline. Although given her insane skill in martial arts, she probably ''lets'' it happen. This being ''Negima'', it's promptly lampshaded:
-->'''[[RobotMaid Chachamaru:]]''' Asuna-san's the only person who's ever been able to engage with Master in physical slapstick.
* Literature Girl in ''Manga/DailyLivesOfHighSchoolBoys'' had one moment in "High School Boys and the Way You are", when her clumsiness caused a long string of EpicFail.
* The premise of ''Manga/KillMeBaby'' lies in Yasuna being physically abused by Sonya at least OncePerEpisode.
* Happens a lot in ''Manga/RockLeesSpringtimeOfYouth'', there was actually two chapters dedicated to this trope.
* Ritsu in ''Manga/KOn'' is a frequent target for Mio's aggression, though some of the other girls have suffered a few bashes on the head (also see CranialEruption). No serious injury has yet occurred from this.
* ''Amazing Nurse Nanako'': all kinds of stuff happen to the eponymous character, [[WouldHitAGirl not the least of which]] [[MadScientist Dr.]] [[{{Bishonen}} Kyouji]] [[BadBoss Ogami]] is directly and indirectly responsible for.
* Happens occasionally to girls in ''Manga/{{Needless}}'', but slapstick happens more frequently to the males.
* ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' has the scene where Meru (a ShrinkingViolet who can only communicate through abusive text messages) ends up getting forced into a seat with no cell reception and starts spewing BlackSpeech. Kafuka's way to treat this problem is to bash her in the head with a crucifix.
** There's also a PlayedForLaughs scene where [[SuperOCD Chiri]] ambushes {{A|pologizesALot}}i and is implied to brutally murder her, acting on jealousy over Itoshiki-sensei.
* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' has Nyarko and Cuuko (and more rarely [[AdorablyPrecociousChild Hasta]]) subject to [[{{Tsundere}} Mahiro]]'s punches and {{fork|Fencing}}s whenever they get too annoying. It helps that they're Lovecraftian gods and can take the punishment, but more than a few fans have expressed displeasure with Mahiro, feeling that he comes off as a short-tempered {{Jerkass}}. Worth noting, the "slapstick" label only really applies to the two TV series; in the original light novels (and the ''Nyaruani'' comedy shorts) Mahiro's forks produce fountains of HighPressureBlood.
* Happens a lot in ''Manga/{{Nichijou}}'', whose protagonist Yuuko ends up on the recieving end of most of the slapstick-related gags in the series. It knows no species either, as the other main victim is Sakamoto the cat.
* This is very prevalent in the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' franchise. [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Kanade Minamino]] and [[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Miyuki Hoshizora]] are the two most notable examples, but [[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Love Momozono]] and [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Nozomi Yumehara]] have their fair share of slapstick too.
* In ''Anime/TheGirlWhoLeaptThroughTime'' protagonist Makoto gets hurt a lot crashing into things due to her clumsy landings doing time leaps. Usually it is PlayedForLaughs, except in one particular occasion when she is badly battered near the climax of the movie.
* While Kero and Sayoran are the true {{Butt Monkey}}s of ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'', Sakura herself is frequently victim to cutesy slapstick.
* During the first episode of ''Anime/LuckyStar'', Miyuki describes some of the things that happen to her for spacing out, such as tripping on her own feet or cutting herself while slicing vegetables, things which Konata then describes as "moe points". The very next scene has her walking into a business sign while pacing back and forth.
** During episode 6, Konata lays a bar of soap down for Miyuki to slip on while they are bathing at the sentou. It works, but she [[LaserGuidedKarma misses it while teasing Kagami]].
** There are also times when Nanako gives Konata a CranialEruption for sleeping in class. In the manga, this extends to other students she has after Konata and her friends graduate. Including the innocent and physically frail Yutaka.
** Minami nailing Hiyori in dodgeball, anyone?
** A late scene in episode 11 is all about the main four (and Soujiro) receiving electrical shocks from a doorknob.
* ''Anime/KillLaKill'' is full of this, with [[TheFakeCutie Nui]], probably the most girly character, getting the worst of it.
* In ''Manga/AhoGirl'', Yoshiko's stupidity causes her to frequently be the victim of retaliatory {{Dope Slap}}s and the like. In one case male lead Akkun hits her with an OffhandBackhand when ''she'' calls ''him'' the idiot.
* In ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'', [[CoolOldLady Taiitsukun]] is the Goddess ([[PhysicalGod in a sense]]) of the trope. On one hand she's among those who send the Nyan-Nyans (who have the looks of little girls) [[ATwinkleInTheSky flying]] [[ButtMonkey when they screw up]], and has hit [[TheDitz Miaka]] (a 15-year-old girl) [[DopeSlap upside the head]] at least once. On the other, it's not like she's less harsh to guys: she's also seen beating up the 17-year-old boy Tamahome once or twice.
* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' does not spare the female characters. Kagura is actually proud to be the first Jump heroine to vomit in an anime.

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' never seemed reluctant to have some of the girls take a shot. While WouldntHitAGirl was invoked quite a few times (usually by a girl), there'd still be quite a few brawls and pratfalls for either gender. And not restricted to just Peppermint Patty taking her lumps in football, either.
** There seemed to be a quasi-feminist DoubleStandard much of the time, with Lucy Van Pelt [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale bullying her brother or even outright punching him for laughs]], but Linus hardly ever got to get back at his sister, except for [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome the rare times when he decided he wasn't going to take her crap anymore]], and [[ShutUpHannibal angrily told her off]]. The one time Lucy was shown with AmusingInjuries, it was only because she'd fallen down while roller-skating.
*** The one exception where Lucy was actually on the receiving end of a debatably ''un''amusing injury is when, [[http://assets.amuniversal.com/51afe620f869013014ce001dd8b71c47 during an early Halloween strip]], she made a snide remark about the similarity between Charlie Brown's head and a pumpkin he was carving at the time. At first, Charlie laughs, making it look like he thought that her remark actually was pretty funny, even chuckling a bit. [[spoiler: Then the final panel shows a loopy-looking Lucy with the remains of the pumpkin that Charlie Brown SMASHED OVER HER HEAD!]] If Lucy ever had a justifiable reason for all the crap she does to Charlie Brown in future strips, ''that'' would do it.
*** When Lucy and Snoopy box in ''WesternAnimation/SnoopyComeHome'', both get beaten up rather harshly (for Peanuts standards anyway).
* Maggie in ''ComicStrip/BringingUpFather'' frequently ended up falling down stairs, tripping over something, or slipping on a polished floor.
* Calvin of ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' dishes it out to Susie Derkins on a regularly basis -- water balloons, slush balls, etc. Of course, this is always a ''bad'' thing, and Calvin usually gets punished; [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale when it happens to Calvin himself, it's comedy]].

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fics of Creator/AAPessimal, the young Assassin Jocasta Wiggs follows her memorable canonical appearance by ending up - in every tale where she features - being liberally smothered in crap. It's now the Wiggs trademark.
* In ''FanFic/ReactWatchBelieveYikes'', [[PerkyGoth Ruby]], [[LovableAlphaBitch Weiss]], [[CuteBookworm Blake]] and [[CoolBigSis Yang]] go through a lot of abuse for the sake of comedy. It's rather justified, given that they're stuck in school with nothing to do but watch ten seasons of Machinima/RedVsBlue.
* In ''[[FanFic/UltimateSpiderWoman Ultimate Spider-Woman: Change With The Light]]'', Mary Jane is thinking about how well things are going for her. She's immediately [[RoadsideWave drenched by a passing car]], and ends up remembering that [[ButtMonkey she's Mary Jane Watson]].
* The titular characters from the MLP fancomic ''Webcomic/DiamondAndDazzle'' are equally subject to physical comedy. One comic features Diamond getting yanked off-panel by her tail due to some device set up by Dazzle. She somehow came back into the panel to make sure Dazzle was yanked along with her.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* Notably averted with Lola Bunny from ''Film/SpaceJam''. Granny on the other hand....
* Disney movies are known for having their female characters avoid this sort of thing, which makes the subversions of the untouched beauty rule all that more noticeable.
** Jane from ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' in spades. The movie makes quite a bit of comedic use out of her inexperience in the jungle, though this eventually dies down as she gets more used to things -- still, chances are if there's a scene where she's in that huge, fancy looking dress, it's going to be ruined in some kind of slapstick scene.
** Tiana of ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' doesn't run into any slapstick at all... when she's human. Almost as soon as [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman she turns into a frog]], she along with Naveen get tossed around for laughs, fall over, all kinds of the sort of goofy situations one could stick into a swamp setting.
** ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'', very much so. Just watch "I'll Make a Man Out of You" and you'll see. This is mostly played straight in the beginning when Mulan was a clumsy ButtMonkey, but toned down after she TookALevelInBadass.
** ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'''s Yzma, though being unattractive and evil are already two strikes against her. "Pull the lever, Kronk." *Ka-chunk!* "WRONG LEVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!" Yzma is possibly Disney's best example of this trope, as much like the rest of the cast the character goes through ''constant'' screwball situations -- especially when she's in the jungle. Case in point, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MNllfr6wVY there's a scene where she gets covered in grime, then attacked by bees]] (for no discernible reason) within a few seconds, [[FunnyBackgroundEvent running around in the background while her sidekick in the foreground pays no attention]], and then she takes a pratfall into the mud ''again.''
** In ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' Vanessa's wedding is played very comically for slapstick. Birds fly under her dress, pelicans dump water, dead fish and lobsters all over her, starfish cover her body from face to waist, seals bounce her like a ball, she gets thrown on top of her own wedding cake and covered in the frosting head to toe before being sprayed by water yet again. This is particularly notable for the inversion of the hyper-feminine beautiful woman as the target.
** To some extent played straight with the female protagonists of the more recent animated movies. [[Disney/{{Tangled}} Rapunzel]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Brave}} Merida]], and [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Anna]], are more prone to suffering AmusingInjuries than [[Franchise/DisneyPrincess their predecessors]].
*** Anna's more slapstick-y moments were briefly an indirect source of controversy, not because nobody wanted to see a female character do physical comedy, but because her animator make a public statement that he found it difficult to animate women, who, as he said, have to go through a wide range of emotions while still looking pretty. A lot of women and artists of both gender were quite pissed.
* Half the slapstick in ''WesternAnimation/CatsDontDance'' comes from Danny (and occasionally Pudge). The rest? Surprisingly enough, it comes from Sawyer, who despite being graceful, wise, and snarky is amusingly very accident-prone (though it should be noted that most of her accidents are in some way Danny's fault). Also, all that happens to the films' villainess, Darla Dimple, at the end of the movie.
* Ruffnut in the ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' films gets used for slapstick in near-perfect synchronization with her twin brother. The only reason Astrid doesn't is because she's too skilled a badass.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', Elastigirl sucker-punches [[spoiler: Mirage]] after she finds [[spoiler: [[NotWhatItLooksLike her embracing her husband]]]].
* Mittens the Cat from ''Disney/{{Bolt}}'' is subjected to ''lots'' of AmusingInjuries throughout her journey.
* If you alter the trope slightly to Slapstick Knows No ''Species'', Disney's ''Disney/TheJungleBook'' has a surprising subversion in the case of Bagheera. Being a black panther, he's a cat in a jungle full of dogs, elephants, bears and monkeys. Of course, those four other kinds of animals are regular fodder for humor, but [[AnimalTropes cats are naturally refined and above that sort of thing, right]]? Especially because Bagheera speaks in that [[IAmVeryBritish dapper, butler-like accent]] that makes you feel guilty about even ''thinking'' of trying to embarrass him. Leave that to the Disney animators: they have him fall in a stream and hit his head on a log when he tries to surface; get a ''huge'' door slammed in his face, leaving him with a swollen purple eye; and yowl in agony when a boulder flattens his tail. Sure, all the other characters get their share of slapstick too, but Bagheera does seem to be humiliated more often than necessary.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/ScaryMovie'' features a ''lot'' of this, from start to finish. It is a comedic parody series, and the lead character is AlwaysFemale.
* ''Film/DirtyLove'' does this to Jenny [=McCarthy=], who wrote and produced it.
* ''Film/DropDeadGorgeous'' does this too, with one girl being hit in the head with a falling light, two getting blown up, and countless eating tainted shellfish and barfing everywhere. Tess however experiences the most slapstick.
* Many Columbia short subject comedies (including those with Film/TheThreeStooges) did this. Vera Vague was on the business end of a lot of violent comedy in her shorts. Even the classiest female supporting players were not exempt; Christine [=McIntyre=] has been, in different shorts, hit over the head with a guitar, splashed with water, and smacked in the face with a loaded shaving brush.
* Orin's middle aged female assistant gets hit several times (such as getting punched in the face and slammed by a door) in his VillainSong in ''Film/LittleShopOfHorrors''.
* The network censor in ''Film/{{Scrooged}}'' is beaten throughout the film by falling sets, carelessly opened doors, and everything else that can get hurled her way. It's very effective at keeping her from doing her job and the smut gets right past her onto the airwaves.
* In ''Film/{{Babe}}: Pig in the City'', Mrs. Hoggett gets dragged around in pretty undignified fashion.
* ''[[Film/TheNakedGun Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear]]'' has then-First Lady Barbara Bush repeatedly on the receiving end of Drebbin's ineptitude.
* Creator/MelissaMcCarthy seems to be making a career out of this.
** In ''Film/IdentityThief'' Jason Bateman smashes a guitar over her head, among other incidents.
** Her role in ''Film/{{Bridesmaids}}'' was also fairly raunchy, since the movie isn't afraid to put women on the receiving end of slapstick, particularly at the bridal fitting where half the women puke in the bathroom (and on each other) and the other half experience explosive diarrhea.
** ''Film/TheHeat'' features both her character and Creator/SandraBullock in these situations repeatedly.
** Continues this in ''{{Film/Spy}}'', including a ''long'' VomitIndiscretionShot done in slow motion.
* The Mexican comic actress and director María Elena Velasco (of ''La India Maria'' series fame) was ''made'' of this in her heyday. She's short and stocky, so when she gets knocked down she can bounce back up like a rubber ball.
* ''Film/PitchPerfect'' has plenty of this, most notably the puking scenes.
* Creator/JossWhedon's adaptation of ''Theatre/MuchAdoAboutNothing'' has, at one point, Beatrice very obviously spying on Hero and a maid, trying to listen in on whether or not they're saying that Benedick is in love with her. When she first heard their conversation, she suffered a pratfall down the steps. Her immediate move to hide under a nearby table then ended with her bonking her head on it.
* In ''Film/TheManWithTwoBrains'', Creator/SteveMartin hurls Kathleen Turner face-first into a pool of mud.
* In ''Film/BugsyMalone'', it seems that the slapstick is going to be entirely confined to the male characters -- until the end, whereupon nobody is safe.
* In ''Film/HomeAlone'' 3, the crooks are victims of Alex's booby traps during their attempt to break in the house to steal the chip, and Alice, the only female of the foursome, is not an exception.
* The lead female protagonist in the Fifty Shades Of Black trailer gets her far share of beating from a malfunctioning elevator.
*In ''Film/GoodBurger'' Carmen Electra's character is sent by the evil restaurant conglomerate Mondo Burger to seduce and steal Ed's "secret sauce" recipe. Ed and Dexter absolutely adore her (but of course Dexter still doesn't trust her enough to actually give her the recipe.) During the mini-golf double date, she is accidentally injured multiple times by Ed's clumsiness, such as getting hit with the golf ball and having her hair set on fire from a candle. In the next scene, she angrily tells Mondo Burger's managers that she quits. She vanishes from the movie after those couple of scenes.
%%*In ''Film/Here Comes The Boom'', Scott is pretty beaten up after the final Ultimate Fighting match in Vegas, but he seems to be fine by the next day back in the school.
* From the look of the Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}} reboot trailer, it looks like these female Ghostbusters are going to be on the receiving end of some slapstick.

* In ''Franchise/HarryPotter'', there are quite a few instances of female characters undergoing this:
** In ''Chamber of Secrets'', Peeves chases Moaning Myrtle and pelts her with moldy peanuts. Later, a FunnyBackgroundEvent involves a nameless female student being turned into a badger by mistake in a Transfiguration class (while she's human again when she appears, she still has a white stripe in her hair).
** In ''Goblet of Fire'', while trying to stop Peeves from throwing water balloons on the newly-arrived students at the start of the year, [=McGonagall=] slips on the floor and only saves herself from falling by grabbing Hermione around the neck.
** In ''Half-Blood Prince'', Hermione absentmindedly squeezes a telescope, forgetting it was something Fred and George invented for their joke shop, and it punches her in the face. This is PlayedForLaughs entirely. The same goes for Trelawny being tossed out of the Room of Requirement.
** Poor Katie Bell gets this twice in one scene. Peeves shoots her in the ear with an ink pellet and, when she retaliates by throwing things at him, he empties an entire bottle of ink over her head.
* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel ''Discworld/NightWatch'', trainee Assassin Jocasta Wiggs is sent on a mission to target Sam Vimes. She ends up treading what she hopes is mainly water in the Ramkin family cesspit, having been directed there by a cunning trap.


[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Probably the best known example is Lucy Ricardo from ''Series/ILoveLucy''. Really, any character Creator/LucilleBall played counts. (This has been blamed for the failure of her attempted 1980s comeback ''Life With Lucy'' - seeing a woman in her seventies still doing slapstick physical humour made the audience seriously worry for her safety and sent the show into DudeNotFunny territory.)
* Carol Burnett in ''Series/TheCarolBurnettShow'', who was also a huge Lucy fan.
* The title characters of ''Series/HopeAndFaith'' also regularly suffered slapstick misfortune.
* ''Series/ThatsSoRaven'': The main character, Raven, gets involved in a lot of slapstick, usually on the receiving end.
* ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'' features a lot of characters going through sometimes over-the-top AmusingInjuries in almost every episode. The female characters, even the beautiful ones, are not excluded either.
* Dee from ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' is just as liable to have her leg broken by homeless people, or her face smashed in by a metal folding chair as the rest of the guys, and has been poisoned the most out of them all. Frank intentionally threw a match into a building full of kerosene while Dee was inside, intentionally setting her on fire for a fake news story.
* The main female characters on ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' also count. Peg has had both Al and a fat woman fall on her and been spun around on a game show wheel, Kelly has been bitten by poisonous insects, hit in the head with a frisbee and rollerskated into a door, Marcy's been running over with a shopping cart and bitten by a poisonous rodent that turned her into a hunchback. All three of them have gotten electrocuted and fallen down the basement stairs. They've also all beaten up various female extras in one episode or another.
* ''Series/LaverneAndShirley'': Both Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams were made honorary members of the Hollywood Stuntman's Guild for all the slapstick and the beating that they took to do it.
* In her eponymous sitcom, ''Series/{{Miranda}}'' Hart subjects herself to copious amounts of slapstick.
* ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'' has Joy constantly falling over when she drinks too much. Also, right after the second time Earl gets run over by a car, it turns out to be Billie (a girl). She proceeds to get run over by another car when she tries to help Earl, and [[DoubleStandard it is no surprise that the paramedics take care of her first]].
* ''Series/TheWorstWitch'' has a lot of the girls affected with slapstick. 95% of the cast are female so it's justified.
* CJ Cregg get this a lot in ''Series/TheWestWing''.
* There is also the "Oh my nose!" scene from ''Series/TheBradyBunch'', where Marcia ([[CatchPhrase Marcia,]] [[RuleOfThree Marcia!]]) gets struck in the nose with an errant football from when the guys are playing in the backyard. The resulting swelling drives the plot for the rest of that episode, ending with Marcia learning AnAesop about not being too self-conscious about her looks. The scene has also been parodied a few times since by other shows, including the Simspons during a Couch Gag where the family runs through the sets of a couple different classic TV shows.
* ''Series/TheNanny'':
** In a notable aversion to the "other women or their own clumsiness" rule, C.C. Babcock was the most abused character on the show, and most of it came at the hands of Niles, the butler. He would hand her a scalding hot teapot, squirt lemon juice in her eye, "forget" to tell her he just mopped with ''very'' slippery floor polish, slam a door on her head, the list goes on and on. The only way they really got away with it was that C.C. was such a RichBitch that treated everybody so horribly throughout the whole show, all of his slapstick abuse came across a little more like KickTheSonOfABitch.
** Fran Fine has her share of slapstick, too. Understandable since Fran Drescher has repeatedly cited Lucille Ball as a major influence upon her.
* British Sitcom ''Series/{{Bottom}}'', which is known for it's cartoonish violence, once had Eddie Hitler knock out a [[CrossesTheLineTwice lady going door to door asking for donations for Domestic Violence victims]].
* ''Series/TheFastShow'' features a sketch about the fictional country of Republicca- a country that is based upon combining parodies of common Briton vacation spots, most notably Spain, Germany, Italy and Greece- where the plot of the soap opera, "El Amora Y El Passionna" had a wife discover her husband's transgressions. When the wife slaps him for his actions, his response is to punch her in the face, resulting in her instant forgiveness and rushing to the kitchen to fix the husband a sandwich, while the husband wears a very smug look on his face.
* ''Series/IncredibleCrew'': In one sketch, Shauna was whacked by an elephant's trunk and struck by lightning. In another, she breathed fire during a spelling bee and ran away. In one sketch, Chanelle had her tongue pinched by a lobster in a party. In another, and during the same spelling bee as Shauna's, Chanelle cartoonishly inflated like a balloon and flew away.
* ''Series/RowanAndMartinsLaughIn'' had no reservations about targeting women in its "Sock it to me" segments.
* ''Series/TheFerals'' had no objection to Modi, Robbie or Mixy being hit in its slapstick segments; of course, all three were able to give as good as they got.
* The title character in ''{{Series/Jessie}}'' (played by Creator/DebbyRyan) probably ends up as a target for slapstick more than any other character, including the kids. Since, like many children's' shows, the series almost ''runs'' on slapstick, that's a lot.
* Terrible things happen to the immaculately dressed police detective Sergeant Dori Doreau in ''Series/SledgeHammer''. Her tailored suit shrinks by three sizes after Sledge drags her into a sauna to interrogate a perp. In order to detain a perp whose day job is mud wrestler, Doreau is dragged into the arena - in her trademark business suit - and deluged in mud and indignity as she wrestles the woman into the mud. And wins.
* ''Series/YouCantDoThatOnTelevision'' didn't play gender-favorites with regards to who got slimed, drenched, pied, or otherwise humiliated, although cast members with seniority had some veto power over who got hit each episode. (And the same was true for most other shows on Nickelodeon where slime-based slapstick was used.)
* Kwebbel and Smal from Flemish children's show Series/KabouterPlop by {{Creator/Studio100}} are always involved in slapstick situations. But while Smal does avoids this most of the time, Kwebbel gets it the most throughout the series.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Wrestling/StacyKeibler, [[Characters/WWECommentators Lilian Garcia]], [[Characters/WWEDivas Maria Kanellis]], and other Characters/WWEDivas have all been beaten up by men at some occasions. Sometimes there is an undertone of (politically incorrect) comedy, but more often it's just a way for [[KickTheDog a heel to show how much of a bullying asshole he can be]]. Worst of all was probably the time Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin -- ''while a {{face}}'' -- knocked Stacy unconscious -- while she was ''also a face'' -- [[DisproportionateRetribution because she declined his offer of a beer]]. Not only did the crowd [[ComedicSociopathy laugh and cheer]], not only did the ''Raw'' commentators (weakly) try to justify Steve's actions, not only did Steve [[KarmaHoudini get off without any punishment at all]], but ''Stacy herself'' [[EasilyForgiven quickly forgave him]] and [[ExtremeDoormat never even confronted him about the incident]]! On the other hand, when Wrestling/RandyOrton knocked out Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon and [[DudeShesLikeInAComa creepily kissed her unconscious form]], the fans were practically calling for his head on a pike.
* Wrestling/BobbyLashley (who, again, was portraying a face at the time) once ripped off Lilian Garcia's skirt, [[ComedicUnderwearExposure leaving her in her underpants]]. But that wasn't even the most humiliating part. The most humiliating part was that ''Wrestling/VinceMcMahon[='=]s [[ItMakesSenseInContext bald head was shoved between her thighs]]''!
* In 2004, when ''Raw'' hosted its second Diva Search contest, the winner, Christy Hemme, was awarded a WWE contract - and the losers had their evening gowns [[CoveredInGunge splattered with a big pot of chili]].
* The Wrestling/BellaTwins once each got a PieInTheFace in a fancy restaurant, although this was less for humiliation than to show what insensitive jerks Wrestling/{{Carlito| Colon}}, Primo, Wrestling/JohnMorrison, and Wrestling/TheMiz had become.
* Wrestling/AngelinaLove running into a closed door after realizing Wrestling/TheBeautifulPeople's ambush on then Wrestling/{{TNA}} newcomer [[Wrestling/LisaMarieVaron Tara]] was [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere starting to go south]].
* In her later years, Mae Young (1923-2014) made a career out of being an IronButtMonkey.

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* ''Series/SesameStreet'': For allegedly being the smartest girl in the world, Alice Braithwaite Goodyshoes gets it coming in spades.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Every time the eponymous protagonist of ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' gets squashed by anything round, we can see a nice slapstick animation, in which she gets [[SquashedFlat flattened]] in the "paper leaf" type. However, [[VideoGame/{{Bayonetta 2}} the sequel]] does not offer any round objects or enemies to squash her, due to its DarkerAndEdgier approach.
* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' doesn't shy away from female characters being caught in unfortunate, painful and embarrassing situations. [[CuteMonsterGirl Makoto]] (who is coincidentally tied with Bullet as the most boyish of all the girls) especially winds up in physical mishaps, including being blown up (twice), forced to eat [[LethalChef Noel's cooking]] and being an unwilling participant in one of [[MadScientist Relius]]' experiments [[note]]And by experiments, we mean Relius' joke ending, not Makoto's bad ending, where she ends up as the subject of one of his experiments and the situation is ''most certainly not'' PlayedForLaughs[[/note]].
* Violet and [[PunnyName Dominique Trix]] from ''VideoGame/CelDamage'' can get blown up, flattened, burnt, deflated like balloons (but only in the Gamecube and Xbox releases), and more.
* Played with in ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot''. Coco Bandicoot and Nina Cortex are subject to the odd AmusingInjuries, albeit not nearly as much as [[IronButtMonkey Crash and Neo]]. Coco even has her own ascending angel death animation in ''Videogame/CrashBandicootTheWrathOfCortex'' just like her brother, though she doesn't have anything near the more over the top deaths he gets from other things.
* In ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'', [[CuteBruiser Tiny Kong]] gets squashed to the ground as well as the other Kongs if you fall from high heights (and [[MonsterClown Mad Jack]] doesn't hesitate to stomp her).
* VideoGame/EarthwormJim: Princess Whatshername is crushed by a cow at the end of the game. And turns into a cow in the sequel.
* ''VideoGame/GoGoHypergrind'' is a cartoonish skateboarding game whose focus is trying to inflict as much pain on your skater as possible. Since some of the characters, such as [[{{Acrofatic}} Piggy Sue]], [[MsFanservice Penny the Cat]], and [[CuteMonsterGirl Sally]], are female, this trope was inevitable.
* Two of the animated shorts for ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' feature the beautiful Goddess Palutena facing a variety of culinary mishaps from an oven exploding in her face to getting a giant pumpkin stuck on her head. Pit remains entirely unaffected by, and oblivious to, the harm that's befalling his beloved goddess throughout the skits.
* Princess Rosella suffers from slapstick deaths in ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVIIThePrincelessBride'', including [[LavaPit falling off a railroad into lava]] and being [[SquashedFlat squashed by a dragon's tail]].
* ''VideoGame/LauraBow'' is a two-part Sierra adventure game with a female protagonist, and, in the same fashion as other games from the company, she is subjected to [[TheManyDeathsOfYou lots of deaths]], averting also the BeautyIsNeverTarnished trope. Some of these includes hilariously falling from stairs and high places, being hit by a car, burned to ashes, stomped by a bell, crushed by an elevator and a chandelier... the poor girl even gets ''chopped in half by an axe onscreen''. All of these are, of course, PlayedForLaughs, being a Sierra game after all.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' gives us Khalisah bint Sinan al-Jilani, a tabloid reporter who tries to do a smear job on your character. One of the available dialogue options is to punch her in the face. In the second game you not only get to do it again (or do it if you didn't the first time around) but video clips show her getting similar treatment from members of the alien races, including the harmless-looking and generally comic-relief volus. By the third game, she's wised up a little; attacking her will result in her dodging the blow, and lamping Shepard to the floor with a counterattack unless you go on to headbutt her into a wall.
* Quite a lot happens to Bandage Girl in ''VideoGame/MeatBoy'' series.
* ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'' plays this trope straight with Eri, Fio and Nadia, getting slapsticky electrocuted, burned or even dissolved or eaten alive by aliens or man-eating plants. A notable one is in ''[[VideoGame/MetalSlug Metal Slug 4]]'': if you get caught in the explosion at the end of the final level, your character, regardless of gender, ends up covered in AmusingInjuries. And there is also a notable aversion in the third game, played for {{Fanservice}}.
* Lammy from the ''VideoGame/PaRappaTheRapper'' series goes through an admirable amount of AmusingInjuries.
* ''VideoGame/SakuraWars'' tends to have female characters on the receiving end of slapstick, usually from other female characters, tripping over stuff, or having things [[NonFatalExplosions blow up in their faces]].
* ''VideoGame/SegaSuperstars'':
** In ''Sega All-Stars Racing'', expect to see Amy, [[VideoGame/SpaceChannel5 Ulala]], or [[VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead Zobiko]] get squished, hit with flying boxing gloves, or hit with missiles.
** And in the sequel, [[VideoGame/SpaceChannel5 Pudding]], [[VideoGame/JetSetRadio Gum]], [[VideoGame/SuperMonkeyBall Meemee]], and [[RogerRabbitEffect real-life racer Danica Patrick]] join the party. And in addition to being flattened and hit with stuff, they also get [[XRaySparks electrocuted in cartoonish fashion]] too.
* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'':
** In ''VideoGame/SonicRiders'', each character has a different attack they can perform on someone, nearly all of which are comical and played for laughs. It's quite funny to see Amy, Rouge, and Wave get flattened, burnt in cartoon fashion, electrocuted, etc.
** ''VideoGame/SonicTheFighters'' is another Sonic game with lots of cartoon-style slapstick, and some of it can definitely happen to Amy (or the infamous Honey, who is now playable in the HD re-release).
** One of Amy's attacks in the first ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Advance|Trilogy}}'' is basically a sliding pratfall on her face.
* The female protagonist of the old Sega CD game ''VideoGame/TimeGal'' has tons of [[TheManyDeathsOfYou funny deaths]].
* In ''VideoGame/WarioLand: Shake It!'', Wario has no qualms with grabbing Queen Merelda and nonchalantly throwing her off-screen (with an audible crash!) so he can get to taking the bottomless coin sack.
** The same applies to Captain Syrup in the earlier Wario Land games.
* The ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' series has this in spades and even applies whenever [[ErmineCapeEffect prim and properly dressed]] royalty characters like Princess Peach, Princess Daisy, and even the very deity-like and beautiful Rosalina get involved in the action unbefitting of royalty, being subjected to the exact same cartoony violence, hijinks, and silliness as the guys.
* In ''VideoGame/TheWonderful101'', the irresistibly cute Wonder Pink can get flattened by enemies, and failing certain [=QTEs=] that require the use of her whip will result in all sorts of comical things happening to her, such as being poked in the butt by a spike, or getting smashed by a robot hand (followed by a tiny little angel floating away after the hand smashes her).
* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' gives us a BlackComedy example. In this game, you can use VATS to specifically [[GroinAttack shoot people in the crotch]]. The game has a lot of fun if you use this on a female character.
-->''"Character's childbearing operations have been compromised"''
-->''"She takes it like a man. That is to say, it hurts like a motherfucker."''
* Has a tendency to show up in the ''Series/TalesOfSeries''. Of particular note:
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'': Colette is a bit of a klutz, and has a tendency to trip and fall through walls, leaving a Colette-shaped hole in them. Sheena also has a habit of falling into deep holes, which is PlayedForLaughs, especially in [[TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld the sequel]].
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'': Generally low on slapstick, but one early scene features an enemy, monster-tamer Arietta the Wild, sending her griffin to capture player characters Luke and Ion. Luke gets grabbed, but Ion's bodyguard Anise (whom Arietta heartily dislikes) shoves Ion out of the way, getting caught herself in the process. Arietta's response to this is to have the griffin drop Anise from high in the air, causing her to faceplant on the ground. Anise gets rather annoyed with Arietta for this but suffers no injury.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'': Pascal suffers more than her fair share of mishaps. In fact, she's introduced trying to hug [[PintSizedPowerhouse Sophie]] and getting blasted into a cliff wall for her trouble. And one of her [[LimitBreak Mystic Artes]] involves riding a robot directly at the enemy she's firing upon, getting caught in the resulting explosion, and flying through the air and crashing into the ground.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'': Two post-victory bits have Milla spinning around her sword in an impressive manner before striking a badass pose, and Leia seeing this and trying to imitate her with her staff. In the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3NVSAjoyqw first one]], she accidentally whacks herself on the back of the head. In the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lSLt_RbssU second one]], she ends up hitting Milla in the ass.
* ''VideoGame/MinecraftStoryMode'': Female Jesse is just as prone to AmusingInjuries as male Jesse is.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* ''VisualNovel/LuxPain'': [[GenkiGirl Mika]] [[IntrepidReporter Nozaki]] is the only female among the main cast to consistently be abused by Rui. And it's funny.
* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'' has Athena Cykes, who [[StaircaseTumble falls down the stairs]] in her opening scene, gets attacked by the prosecutor's RazorWind and hawk just as much as Phoenix and Apollo, and has expressions as exaggerated as the other protagonists. This is especially noticeable when compared to the last playable female character Mia Fey, who avoids comical injuries and still looks dignified despite being insulted in her playable appearances like every other playable character.
* Creator/TypeMoon in general doesn't shy away from putting its female characters in slapstick situations, especially if your name is [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Taiga Fujimura]].

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* In ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'', Davan comments several times that he "doesn't hit women," but has hit Aubrey or Peejee several times, and once "magically" slapped a pretentious witch on the head with a ruler.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'', the cartoonist made it a point to have Helen and Mel do their share of physical gags, due to the mentioned double standard. Helen was the only character getting injured by her own ur-gerbils.
* The only thing stopping the girls of ''Webcomic/{{Precocious}}'' joining in the BigBallOfViolence is a good enough excuse. One strip even featured a MeleeATrois where Bud, Roddy, and beauty pageant queen Dionne took turns doubleteaming each other or having a free-for-all.
* Nin Wah from ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'' is possibly a bigger ButtMonkey than CK himself.
* ''Webcomic/FruitIncest'' used this as a joke for TheRant in one comic.
-->"You can tell ''Fruit Incest'' is a very progressive comic when you realize there are more female characters who get seriously injured than male."
* Given that the series averts MenAreTheExpendableGender and is an example of GenderIsNoObject it's little surprise ''{{Drowtales}}'' features this, especially in the end of chapter chibi parodies, where female characters are just as ([[ImprobablyFemaleCast if not more]]) likely to be on the receiving end of slapstick violence as male characters.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Matchu}}'' Amber takes tons of physical punishment and humiliation, while Gina the Psychic has been smacked in the face with her own crystal ball twice.
* Kimiko of ''Webcomic/MegaTokyo'' has a tendency to get caught up in slapstick jokes. One running gag in her earlier appearances was that she tended to trip while serving coffee, either hitting a hapless customer in the face or pouring the coffee on their lap. While trying to calm down a drunk and freaked out Largo, she also tripped while chasing him and then got puked on by him.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses:
** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick will often get caught up in cartoonish violence, particularly in her joint review of ''Ferngully'' with WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic and in ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}''. This is most likely due to the site's views on gender equality and feminism.
** In the [[WebVideo/TGWTGYearOneBrawl Anniversary Brawl]], the Chick, Marzgurl, and That Chick with the Goggles all were beat up plenty. Most notable was when the Critic asks Goggles if she was on his team or not and, when she said she wasn't, he promptly punched her in the face.
* On Blog/DasSporking, female sporkers are just as likely as male ones to take AmusingInjuries. Mervin, Hyde, and Ket are the most prominent - Mervin and Hyde smack each other up, and Mervin and Ket tend to get into brawls with occasional co-sporker [[Film/OnceUponATimeInMexico Agent Sands]].
* ''WebAnimation/PorkchopNFlatscreen'' has the protagonists Mai and Ayane, as well as the resident AlphaBitch Mina Kim, end up on the receiving end of many, many physical gags.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/GetEd'', the girls are physically injured and humiliated for the audience's amusement just as often as the boys are.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': Candace seems to be the ChewToy of the show. If someone is going to fall, be attacked, hit in the face, dropped in embarrassing goo, covered in hair, or have any other unfortunate yet hilarious thing happen to them, there's a good chance it's her.
-->'''Candace:''' [[MemeticMutation There's squirrels in my pants!!]]
* {{A|sianAirhead}}my [[BunnyEarsLawyer Wong]] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' was created specifically to see whether audiences could laugh at a female victim of slapstick. Turns out the answer is a resounding "Yes". However, Leela also seemed to get her fair share of slapstick in later seasons. She's been hit on the head, electrocuted, sucked by a leech, attacked by an octopus and smashed into a wall by a door.
* The ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' series has quite a few of them. ''Total Drama'' runs off of this; no contestant is immune.
** The spinoff ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaPresentsTheRidonculousRace'' is exactly the same.
* Oblina from ''WesternAnimation/AaahhRealMonsters'' has suffered just as many AmusingInjuries as the male monsters.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' shows Cosmo accidentally slapsticking Wanda so often, including [[AshFace torching her with a flamethrower]], that it's considered entirely possible that she would deliberately get him sent back to live with his mother.
** Vicky, of course, is also on the receiving end of slapstick most of the times when she [[LaserGuidedKarma receives her comeuppance]], which is in almost ''every'' episode.
* Stacy Stickler on ''WesternAnimation/StickinAround'' sometimes had her fair share of AmusingInjuries.
* [[ActionGirl Kitty Katswell]] from ''WesternAnimation/TUFFPuppy'' is arguably subjected to more abuse than [[DumbMuscle Dudley Puppy]] himself, such as being [[AshFace charred]] from various situations, or being squashed or hit by cars and trains.
* Frida on ''WesternAnimation/ElTigre'' received more harm and abuse than any other character in the series. [[RuleOfFunny And it was hilarious]].
* Muriel from ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'' is subjected to AmusingInjuries at times.
* As the show's resident ButtMonkey, Meg Griffin has gotten quite a bit of this on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.
** Meg's mother Lois doesn't get much easier. She's been shoved down the stairs by her husband Peter, fallen off the roof of the Griffin house when Peter's rickety balcony breaks, drenched in scalding cooking oil by Peter, and more.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' stars a nearly-all-female cast, so this was practically inevitable. Note that the one regular male character, Spike, is nevertheless not spared either, as he's the PluckyComicRelief.
** Most notable was the episode "Feeling Pinkie Keen", in which Twilight's repeated attempts to observe and document Pinkie Pie's alleged powers of clairvoyance resulted in a constant string of ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes''-esque shenanigans, up to and including having a [[FlowerPotDrop flower pot]], an [[AnvilOnHead anvil]], a hay wagon, ''[[OverlyLongGag and]]'' a {{piano|Drop}} fall on her in one scene. And it's undoubtedly the funniest moment of the entire show.
** It's even more pronounced in "Castle Mane-ia", which subjects nearly the entire cast to a string of Scooby Doo-esque disasters. Naturally, Rarity, the girliest pony of the bunch, [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-hauCQ645dCU/U3lVmmQNfmI/AAAAAAABx7c/RiajF2wDQ00/s1600/Rock_clonks_Rarity_on_the_head_S4E03.png gets it the worst]].
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnwwZMNwHI8 My Little Pony: Slapstick Is Epic]]''
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' involves the entire cast in over-the-top slapstick comedy, both male and female. This is most readily apparent with frequent cause and slightly less frequent recipients, the [[AbhorrentAdmirer Kanker sisters]]. This trope is generally less apparent when distinguishing between the females (5 total) and Nazz, the closest the show gets to a regular [[TheChick chick]]. Nazz generally only suffers slapstick violence as a result of indiscriminate group damage. Similar to the Kankers, Sarah is also usually the one inflicting cartoon abuse, though Eddy submits her to revenge cheap shots at every opportunity, such as bumping her off frame or ''taking her mouth off''.
* While Heloise was rarely a victim of AmusingInjuries in season 1 of ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'', she suffers more in season 2 than just about any other character. The episode "Heads Roll" practically centers around Heloise's head getting completely battered.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'':
** Harley Quinn was often the subject of slapstick humor due to her BumblingSidekick status. Notably, in the episode "Girl's Night Out", she shoots an over-sized knockout glove at Supergirl, only for it to bounce harmlessly off of Supergirl and rebound right back in her face.
** The ''Mad Love'' comic had Harley physically abused in both funny and unfunny ways. An early scene shows a fed-up Joker grabbing her by her nose, dragging her down to the cellar, and [[LiteralAssKicking booting her into a muddy pit]] (while she's in her underwear, no less!) [[DisproportionateRetribution as punishment for calling him "Puddin'"]]. Later, on a ''much'' less funny note, [[BastardBoyfriend the Joker pushes her through a window hundreds of feet above the street, crippling and nearly killing her]].
* Zatanna magically hurls musical instruments and furniture at Circe multiple times [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLRfGRC6xSs during a fight]] in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'', not even letting her ''finish her threats''.
-->'''Circe:''' Insolent trickster! You dare to stri-\\

'''Circe:''' You dare to stri-\\

'''Circe:''' You dare to stri-\\
''[head covered by table cloth]''\\
'''Circe:''' '''QUIT IT!''' [[OhCrap Oh No...]]\\
''[gets hit by a piano]''
* Mrs Puff from ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' is always victim of [=SpongeBob=]'s stupidity. Sandy is also victim of slapstick in certain episodes.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'':
** Nicole, the mother character, goes through quite a lot of this when chasing Gumball and Darwin in "The DVD".
** On "The Responsible", Anais, along with Gumball and Darwin literally smack into the ground after falling from the sky.
* Both the male and female characters get their share of slapstick comedy in ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''. This goes even for the more surreal, degrading gags -- like a character [[ManChild turning into a diapered baby when he/she is not acting their age]].
* Not even [[TheStoic Mandy]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' is immune to this trope. She's been [[AshFace burnt to a crisp]], [[CoveredInGunge got sneezed on]] by Grim twice, got swallowed and later spit out with hairballs by a giant cat, and so on.
* Zigzagged with ''WesternAnimation/TheDreamstone''. Amberley for the large part bumbled as much through missions as [[TheKlutz Rufus]] did. However this consisted mostly of tame pratfalls compared to the exaggerated AmusingInjuries [[IronButtMonkey the Urpneys]] suffered each episode.
* Princess Clara from ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' tends to be beaten up, sometimes randomly, by the housemates in several episodes.
** Toot Braunstein frequently dies in humorously grusum and over the top ways such as [[spoiler: chopping off her own head after Xander rejected her advances...]]
** Foxxy Love also has her moments such as [[spoiler: having a nail and a separate finger yanked off]]...
* Neither Buena Girl nor the other female {{Masked Luchador}}s were spared the AmusingInjuries in WesternAnimation/MuchaLucha.
* [[ButtMonkey The female zoologist]] from the Hip Hippos segments of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' falls in this trope.
* Minnie Mouse in the ''WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse'' short "Minnie Visits Daisy".
* ''WesternAnimation/HiHiPuffyAmiYumi'': The duo goes through plenty of slapstick.
* ''WesternAnimation/DuckDodgers'': The Episode "The New Cadet", the new cadet (a HelloNurse-esque human woman) finds herself in the same ButtMonkey situations as the Porky Pig version (before she turns out to be a StalkerWithACrush) including getting blown up by Dodgers as a practical joke.
* The girls in ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' -- not surprising, since they are both {{Action Girl}}s and comedy characters.
* Tabitha from ''WesternAnimation/SlackerCats'' is probably the most abused character in the show.
* Daisy Duck takes some lumps, though not as much as the boys, in ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack''.
* Francine and Hayley Smith from ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' become more and more on the receiving end of horrible beatings and misfortunes as the show progresses.
* The female engines, especially Emily, are as prone to accidents as the male ones in ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'' pulls no punches when it comes to slapstick. [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Amalia]] has probably suffered more black eyes than any of the other cast members save [[ButtMonkey Sadlygrove]]. The two Gobbowl arcs in particular are especially harsh for her. Evangelyne less often, although she's hardly immune, notably in the Ugly Princesses' abode, or in Ruel's house.
* Frequently Lola Bunny in ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'', in stark contrast with her ''Film/SpaceJam'' counterpart.
* Despite being TheSmartGuy, [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Lisa Simpson]] is not safe from slapstick. She has been punched in the face at least twice (one of those times by a man!), hit in the face multiple times with a basketball, strapped to an airplane propeller that was then turned on at full speed as part of a military academy hazing, and - probably her most humiliating moment - dared by Bart into drinking canal water from the "Little Land of Duff" ride in [[SouvenirLand Duff Gardens]] which turned her into [[MushroomSamba a hallucinating, naked "Lizard Queen"]]. Marge also takes pratfalls, although far less often.
* ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'': Sylvia may be the show's resident asskicker, but she gets dealt AmusingInjuries almost as often as her counterparts, mostly in her attempts to be the CloudcuckoolandersMinder. See "The Egg", "The Pet", and "The Day" for examples.
* Amethyst of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is a frequent victim of slapstick. Pearl and Garnet get it occasionally as well, though not as much as Amethyst.
* WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra is no stranger to physical comedy, and Korra's personality makes her as good a target as anyone for it. For example, an airbending test early in the series tasks her with weaving between a series of quickly-spinning wooden planks, counter to the physical bending she's more adept at. The first couple scenes featuring the test boil down to Korra getting comically slapped around by the planks.
