Black Comedy Rape
The whole point of a certain type of comedy is to cross the lines, violate the boundaries, and be as offensive as possible. In Real Life, of course, rape is an appalling crime that brutalizes the victim and can destroy lives. But in the wacky world of fiction, particularly those stories written by old-school, non-PC types, rape (or the threat of it) is a 'hilarious' way to punish a character.
This is particularly true of rape of men (even more if it's by women). These versions of the trope have their roots in the ancient myth that a real man cannot be raped; generally, the humour of the scene comes not so much from the act of rape, but from the violation of that perceived law of nature (and with certain male characters, the sheer irony of it).
Sometimes it is only the threat of rape that is used. Either way, the facts that rape is more about power than sex, that rape is equally upsetting to the victim regardless of their sexuality and the gender and species of the perpetrator, and that being raped does not determine one's sexuality, are irrelevant here. When it's used as comedy, it's used because it's offensive, or sometimes, in the case of men being raped, because some people refuse to acknowledge men as rape victims. When played with care, rape can also be the subject of very dark humour. Keywords: 'when played with care'.

- Russell Howard's stand up act includes Yawn Rape!
- Frankie Boyle found out that Rape is in predictive text. Why would Rape be in predictive text!? "Sorry mum, will be late for dinner, gone raping.
- There is a Hentai by the name of Power Play which is basically about an Evil Sex King kidnapping and raping beautiful girls into his harem. His evil plot to do this to all Bishoujo Series in the world is constantly thwarted by three female magic knights. Their tactic: raping him dry and thus powerless. The result: the warrior girls and the king attempting to outrape each other.
- It's not too uncommon for a lighter-hearted H-doujin to feature a woman being raped - and focusing entirely on some tiny little detail (like being late for work or some such thing) and completely ignoring the rape itself.
- On Chelsea Lately, sometimes the comedian Loni Love will suddenly grab the man sitting next to her by the head and kiss him. She calls it "face-raping someone".
- The Brazilian comedian "Rafinha Bastos" told a lot of rape jokes of man by man, and even told one about him being a child/teen prostitute that would please truck drivers. Things hit the fan when he made a joke about ugly women thanking the rapists, and another that he would "do" a famous actress and her baby.
- Neil Hamburger has been known to do this.
Q: Why don't rapists eat at TGI Friday's?
A: Well, it's hard to go out and rape when you've got a stomachache!
- Any time a So Bad It's Good fanfic attempts a rape scene. It's often hard to tell whether or not this is intentional.
- In Promstuck, Vriska says it is important to always be on top during sex, because that means you're winning. She also tells John not to bother with foreplay and go straight for the goods ("no-one 8others with the salad 8ar, John!"), and that 'negotiating clear boundaries' are for 'dowdy middle-aged English professors'. Fortunately, being in a fanfic, the humour relies on the audience knowing this is completely wrong, and that Vriska is therefore an extremely inexperienced blowhard who had no idea what she's talking about.
- "Fail!rape" crops up occasionally; this refers to Attempted Rape which fails in a humorous manner. An Axis Powers Hetalia Kink Meme fill loosely inspired by the infamous "Financial Crisis Gang Bang" comic falls under this heading; in it, Canada is extremely angry at America and decides to rape him as "punishment", but Canada is "too polite and too French to make sex unpleasant".
Video Games[edit | hide]
- The Korean arcade game "Boonga-Ga Boong-Ga", made for the Japanese market, allows you to commit Kancho on various targets of choice for points. Kancho is a uniquely Japanese way of pranking someone by trying to ram your fingers up their butt, primarily among children. If you've seen Kakashi's "Thousand Years of Pain" technique, you know how it's executed.
- A large number of hentai flash games (the interactive sex kind with no text) seem to play rape for laughs as much as for arousal. The target of the rape is invariably female, but the act may be perpetuated by a man, several men, a tentacle monster, or any of an increasingly ludicrous selection of large objects.
- Duke Nukem Forever. From Destructoid's review:
One level in particular takes place in an alien nest where Earth's women ... look like they're getting raped. In fact, they are. That's the big joke of the level. The aliens are raping the women to create babies.

- Sexy Losers has this as one of its staple gags.
- According to his blog, the author was deeply offended to discover this entry, and promises not to do it again. But incest and necrophilia are still A-okay!
- In Goblins, Dellyn thought this was true of raping near-human monsters. He laughingly explained to Mimax how he raped Kin every night while beating her nearly to death and then healing her back to perfection. Minmax gave him a Dude, Not Funny moment... by throwing him through a window. This is also the first time that Minmax is depicted as a decent human being instead of a Munchkin out to murder the main cast for experience and loot. Or The Chew Toy comic relief.
- A common theme in Twisted Kaiju Theater.
- In the NSFW Webcomics Dreamwalk Journal spinoff The Widow predator/prey relationships between insects and arachnids are subverted by the genetically modified human/insect/arachnid characters into a kind of ritual combat by rape, the object being the theft of some of the victim's bodily fluids or collected pollen. The victims usually end up paralyzed with goofy expressions and their tongues hanging out. The prey don't exactly welcome this, but there are usually no hard feelings afterward.

- Also an internet meme "There is nothing funny about rape. Unless you are raping a clown."
- At least that's better than "It's not rape if they're dead."
- "In Japan, rape is like saying 'Hello'!"

- Well, little Suzy, once upon a time... THERE WAS 'RAAAAAPE.

- Read this entry from Something Awful.

- The episode "Jenny Fromdabloc" has Roger and Snot having sex, although it's revealed that Roger was using a stress ball instead of a, ya know. Speaking of Roger, he also did that weird chin innuendo with Steve in "License to Till." In "School Lies" when he's dressed up like Steve, he wants Stan to kiss him on the lips because he "wants that kind of relationship".
- In one episode of Hayate the Combat Butler, Hayate ends up dressed as a Catgirl maid by his employer. Naturally, the employer's pet white tiger, Tama, takes a liking to him, and, umm... yeah. The scene is censored, so we're not quite sure if it's actual rape or molestation, but Tama's certainly going through the motions there before Hayate knocks him away with an uppercut.
- In Rizelmine Aoi's initial meeting with her future boyfriend has her accidentally using a mind controlling helmet on him which results in him fiercely licking between her legs much to her distress. Said future boyfriend was a dog. When her three friends came she thought she was saved but It Got Worse for her, after seeing the rape of women by the women section. Meanwhile, although their first meeting was rough, Aio's relationship turned into what she would consider puppy love, but to the now non-mind controlled pup it was a literal Rape The Dog moment.
- He Is My Master has Pochi, a horny alligator who seems quite fond of Izumi Sawatari. (In the anime, at least. He's surprisingly more courteous in the original manga.)
- Green Green features a bear explicitly raping Bacchi-Guu... but it's hard to think of who could deserve it more, as he repeatedly plots sexual assaults and actually goes through with what he thinks is a sexual assault. (She liked it.) The same thing happens to the whole Baka Trio on an later occasion. Far worse is the rape of Reika by a troop of monkeys for the apparent crime of being a prude.
- While no rape actually happens, Momoka being resuscitated by a Space Octopus on Keroro Gunsou is played out like this trope. On a Sunday morning kids' anime no less.
- One of Mayo Mitama favorite hobbies in Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is raping dogs; she likes to use small sharp objects like pencils and branches to anally violate them.

Then the elephant dies in the act on top of them.

- In the New Zealand Zombie-WereSheep-Horror-Comedy Black Sheep, the main hero tries to masquerade as a sheep with a wool seat-cover across a field of flesh eating haggis-ingredients. One of said animals takes an interest in our disguised hero (who is male) and... "hilarity" ensues.
- In The Rundown, Dwayne Johnson (aka, The Rock) is humped by a monkey while hanging from a tree in a rope trap. Interestingly, he, the big bounty hunter, gets this treatment and not the comparatively smaller and comic relief character who is also trapped next to him.
- The main antagonist of George of the Jungle marries himself to a gorilla in a dark cave, mistaking it for the pretty girl. The gorilla allows him to fire up his lighter and take a good look at his "bride" before blowing it out, and the next shot is the gorilla making out with him as they exit the cave.
- And then there's the interrogation from The Cowboy Way, where a calf and a pantsless Mook interact in a manner that, to the milk-seeking calf, was probably frustrating.
- The infamous "You just got stuffed!" scene from ThanksKilling.
- In the Rob Schneider film The Animal, the protagonist under the influence of his animal "parts", attempts to sex up a goat. Hilarity, supposedly, ensues.

Literature[edit | hide]
- The Stephanie Plum novel Ten Big Ones involves Stephanie being mounted by seven dogs at once, although there's no penetration. While the character doesn't enjoy the experience, she doesn't seem much traumatised by it either, except for discomfort about a foreign substance in her hair. Repeated in Fearless Fourteen, with Pop Diva Brenda suffering a similar fate via monkey.
- The Amazing Kingdom of Thrills, a theme park in Carl Hiaasen's Native Tongue, buys a dolphin on the cheap to compete with Disneyland's swimming-with-dolphins attraction, but it turns out to be mentally unstable and sexually deviant.

- In the original first novel that paved Slayers, the heroine, Lina, is captured by a chimera named Zelgadis, and he allows his henchmen to do what they wish to her. In the original Japanese version of the book, one henchman, Zolf, encourages that he and the others rape her, and fellow-henchman Noonsa, a fish-man, partakes on it and stands there expecting eggs to show up. The gist: his race lays eggs to produce, and he expects Lina to do the same.
- Possibly Dumbledore's brother Aberforth in the Harry Potter series, who got in trouble for practicing "inappropriate charms on a goat". Considering that he is shown to have a certain fondness for them, right down to having a goat Patronus, it is very telling that JK Rowling gave this answer when asked by a young fan.
Fan: In the Goblet of Fire, Dumbledore said his brother was prosecuted for practicing inappropriate charms [JKR buries her head, to laughter] on a goat; what were the inappropriate charms he was practicing on that goat?
JKR: How old are you?
JKR: I think that he was trying to make a goat that was easy to keep clean [laughter], curly horns. That's a joke that works on a couple of levels. I really like Aberforth and his goats. But you know, Aberforth having this strange fondness for goats, if you've read book seven, came in really useful to Harry, later on, because a goat, a stag, you know. If you're a stupid Death Eater, what's the difference. So, that is my answer to YOU.
- In an episode of Love Soup, one of the characters is raped by a dog (she has just stepped from the bath, and conveniently dropped her contact lenses). It is heavily implied that this is because the old lady who used to own the dog was exceptionally deviant.

- In the episode "iGot a Hot Room", an incident is mentioned concerning Carly when she was at a petting zoo. "What did the goat do?".
- In a deleted scene in Jonathan Creek's "The Grinning Man", Joey's actress friend Mina gives her tickets to her new play and warns her that there's a graphic rape scene. Cut to Mina getting taken from behind by a man in a paper mache bull's head making loud mooing noises. Granted, it's not a real rape scene, but it's deliberate Narm.

- In Louie, the title character usually makes rape jokes in his stand-ups and in one he says that if he realized he was the last man on earth he would totally rape animals.
- Played straight by in French song "Le Gorille" by Georges Brassens (1952), but subverted at the end.

It settles for a young judge, who in the end shouts "Mommy!" just like the man whose execution the judge presided earlier the same day.
- The death metal band Torsofuck have a song called "Raped By Elephants". The lyrics are about Exactly What It Says on the Tin.

- GWAR's "Fucking an Animal".
- Harry Secombe, Peter Sellers and Spike Milligan allegedly produced the following limerick one line at a time, only viewing the rhyming word of the previous line until it was complete. Not surprisingly it wasn't used on radio.
There was a young man of Cathay
On a slow boat to China one day
He was trapped at the tiller
By a sex-crazed gorilla
And China's a long, long way!

After that incident, Kichi keeps saying that he laments the "loss of his purity".

Web Comics[edit | hide]
- The Ironic Hell of Jack briefly shows the personal Hell of a character supposedly based on the ex-boyfriend of the artist's wife, who was apparently an extremely unpleasant fellow in many ways, including a... fondness... for dolphins. This being an Ironic Hell, the character now finds himself constantly being raped by dolphins, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Not being real dolphins, the rapists aren't particularly bothered by the lack of water.
- Usually, the panda living in the Pv P offices violently attacks Brent. Then he ends up in a male panda outfit as an attempt to get beaten up by the male panda so a female panda (brought in to mate with the male panda) would find the local panda more attractive. Brent accidentally knocks out the local panda and the female panda is...ahem...quite smitten with Brent. The whole arc starts here.

'Carl: For years, I used to think it was funny, oh yeah, rape's sooooooo funny. Til you've been raped.

- In an episode of Family Guy, Peter enters the rodeo. A few seconds later, he gets thrown off the bull, and literally raped by it. In front of everyone. No one does anything. It's then treated as though he's in an abusive relationship with the (anthropomorphic) bull.
- Oddly enough, implied in Duck Dodgers. When the Cadet (Porky Pig) takes the fall for Captain Dodgers, he's sent to a prison (CLEARLY referencing Guantanamo Bay). The Cadet's cellmate says something along the lines of "Oooh, new piggy bank. Me make deposit." Wonder what happens next?

- Mahou Sensei Negima has Robot Girl Chachamaru get... flustered... whenever someone charges her up by winding the key on the back of her head. While apparently not a problem when done smoothly, it becomes quite overwhelming otherwise: When Negi does it, she screams with pleasure and ends up in a panting heap. Later on, Asakura is winding her up, realizes the implications, and this happens. Complete with Chachamaru begging Asakura to stop while Sayo looks on in horror.

Being an improv show, sometimes scrambling for words leads people to... odd places. Because things weren't disturbing enough, Josie decides to reach for a little Rape of Animals to finish off the scene. At least she has the decency to look horrified at what's come out of her mouth. It really has to be seen to be believed.

- Everyone who's been a Human Popsicle has to go through the Probe-U-Later. This is reinforced several times throughout the series—except that, when the popsicle is female, the Probe-U-Later is never even mentioned. (One could presume that she went through it offscreen. However, the fact that it's not even hinted at still pushes this into Double Standard territory.)

Web Comics[edit | hide]
- Penny Arcade had a World of Warcraft based comic in which an adventurer left a slave to be beaten and then raped to sleep by "dickwolves". This drew Dude, Not Funny from readers, which led to the following comic being a statement in which Gabe and Tycho said "We hate rapers, and all the rapes they do. If you're raping someone right now, stop. Apologize. And leave. Go, and rape no more."

- A plot summary of Kanokon: the very well-endowed Chizuru molests/seduces/outright tries to have sex with Kouta on a regular basis, giving him the permanent reputation at school as a huge pervert. At one point, he is caught with a naked Chizuru in the middle of a street when her barrier shatters. She goes furthest on the last episode: tired of waiting for a confession, she abducts and sets out to rape him in an empty classroom, while the helpless, almost-crying Kouta covers his face and begs her to stop (which she does at the last minute, when his rejection finally hits home).
- Girls Saurus opens with a burly, overweight and generally hideous schoolgirl confessing to the male protagonist, and then take her clothes off. When he rejects her, she gets pissed off and beats him up thoroughly; the whole ordeal not only land him in traction for a long while, but also gives him severe gynophobia. While the reader is made aware how strongly this affects him, few of the other cast members show much sympathy.None of the other main characters know about Shingo's phobia, except for the school nurse. The protagonist confided his condition to her hoping she could help, but this was a bad idea.
- Played partially sympathetically but mostly for laughs in the manga Ahiru No Oujisama (Or, Duck Prince). The main character is raped by his stepsister! And to make matters worse, it was only moments before the rape that he learned they weren't blood relatives. Other characters still get away with mocking him for it...
- In Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun the asexual Shungo is regularly tied up and sexually harassed by the girls in his class because they take sadistic pleasure in seeing him squirm, however none of them try to go all the way with him. The same can not be said though of Reika who after snapping tries to physically force him to have sex with her (which is not played for laughs).
- Girls Bravo: Yukinari is frequently the victim of this at the hands of Lisa, and Miharu, to a lesser extent, though she is less aggressive about it.
- In Ranma ½ Kodachi uses "paralysis powder" to render an unwilling Ranma helpless and is fully intending to take advantage of the situation more than once, fortunately interrupted each time.
- Naruto: Although she never got to doing (being interrupted by forces from Konoha finding their group), it's heavily implied once that Karin planned to drug Suigetsu and Jugo, then when they were unconscious rape Sasuke when he was injured from a battle.
- In Detroit Metal City (a show with a lot of rape jokes) a little girl that was dressed like Krauser was claimed to be fans to be next incarnation after singing one of his songs a deep throttling a white liquid. When her father entered she jumped on him and the crowed started cheering for her to rape him and kill him like Krauser had done to his parents.
- In the ecchi manga, My Balls, the lead male character has a demon lord sealed into his right testicle. If he ejaculates then she will escape and destroy the world. As a consequence every chapter consists of the character alternately being raped by a rotating ensemble of demonesses and his off-and-on nymphomaniac love interest.
- By the same author as My Balls, Yuria 100 Shiki features Yuria, a Ridiculously Human Robot Sex Bot who, because of her programming, constantly tries to force sex on her unwilling (because he is already engaged) roommate, Shunsuke. Fortunately for Shunsuke, he is a skilled amateur wrestler and has so far managed to avoid her very, very persistent "advances."
- In Excel Saga (surprised?) the character Pedro is, on a regular basis, figuratively and literally raped by the universe. (Or in this case the female anthropomorphic representation, The Great Will of the Macrocosm).
- In the finale of Tenchi Muyo GXP, the protagonist Seina Yamada gets gang banged by four women after being kidnapped them. Oh, and it was on video for all the universe to see.
- In Mawaru Penguindrum Ringo doesn't quite rape Shouma, but she does end up trying to kiss him by force and humping him rather... passionately during episode 6, in which she wants a "wedding night" with her crush Tabuki despite being very feverish. She only stops when she collapses atop of him due to her fever.
Comic Books[edit | hide]
- In 'The Pro, the title character manages to track down a client she had at the start of the comic, who has a history of not paying prostitutes. She rips off his pants, and then all the prostitutes line up to shove progressively larger things up his arse.

- Happens to Bob in Horndog.
- In one of the Giffen and Dematteis issues of Booster Gold (V2) Booster spends the entire issue being dragged around by an amorous, super-strong female space pirate who intends to rape him as soon as they have a free moment. She makes it very clear that his protests don't matter, and that he probably won't survive the experience. Entirely Played for Laughs.
- The Dimension Queen/Eldritch Abomination Umar (sister of Doctor Strange villain Dormammu) once spent almost an entire miniseries of The Defenders raping the Incredible Hulk. Umar couldn't get enough, and was very disappointed when the Hulk became so satisfied with the experience that Bruce Banner reverted to normal and couldn't Hulk Out!

- In the comedy The Deviants, a woman tells a matchmaker for sex deviants that she must have sex with every man she talks with privately. It's immediately demonstrated as she pulls up a gun and tells him to strip. He refuses so she knocks him out with the gun and proceeds to have her way with him. When his female helper hears about it, she not only laughs about him being raped, but gives him a weird look and then pressures him to laugh too. To top it off, he sends her another client of his fully aware of what she'll do to him (probably him just doing his job, given that this client smiles when she tells him to strip at gunpoint).
- A major subplot of Wedding Crashers follows Vince Vaughn's character being pursued by a clingy, obsessive girl who eventually ties him to a bed, gags him with a dirty sock, and rapes him (Vaughn's character described himself as feeling like "Jodie Foster in The Accused" in a later scene). Of course, this is played for laughs, as the character is an extreme womanizer, and he reacts to these events more with annoyance than horror and ends up marrying the girl before the movie ends.
- In National Lampoon's Barely Legal (aka After School Special), some high school guys plant a fellow student's photo in their porn site without him knowing. His hairdresser is then convinced he can cast her into porn movies. When he has no idea what she wants from him, she pours a can of hair mousse into her hand and circles him. Ignoring the other people in the salon, she gives him, out of nowhere, a handjob from behind, causing him to scream in panic.
- In the direct-to-video American Pie Presents: Beta House, Stifler goes to a sex addicts' meeting in his college hoping to find easy targets. After he commends a speaker's bravery for finally being abstinent for a while, she looks at him and it is followed by them having sex in his dormitory. However, her hypersexual behavior causes him to eventually trick her and run away. His roommate then comes looking for him, and the still nude female student orders and immediately pushes the stranger to bed, and jumps on him.
- In the recent movie adaptation of St Trinian's, towards the end, Geoffrey Thwaites has a drink with his old lover, Miss Fritton and wakes up naked in her bed the next morning.
- In the 1990 Clint Eastwood vehicle The Rookie, Clint stars as a detective chasing down a ruthless car thief. Captured by the thief and his girlfriend, Clint is tied to a chair and interrogated by the villains. Later, the lady thief mounts Clint and screws him while a camera records the action. Later, when Clint's partner comes to rescue him, the sex is comically being played on a number of TV screens, causing the partner to jokingly prod Clint about how much fun he's been having. This is all played for laughs instead of as a perverse sexual assault.
- In the musical adaptation of Reefer Madness, this happens in the musical number "Little Mary Sunshine," in which Ralph's marijuana-facilitated attempted seduction of Mary goes horribly, horribly wrong.
- A '70s Made for TV Movie called It Couldn't Happen to a Nicer Guy concerns a man who is kidnapped, stripped, and sent away naked by a beautiful woman, and his subsequent difficulties getting the authorities - or his wife - to believe his story.
- Norbit's entire relationship is pretty much based on Rasputia strong-arming her way into his world by saving him from two bullies, and doing this to his entire social life.
"Heeeeey. What's YOUR name? My name's Rasputia."
"Hey Noooorbit. You got a giiiiirlfriend?"
"WELL YA DO NOW" and then she picks him up and drags him off cavewoman style.
- Tomcats plays it straight and subverts it. The quiet Hot Librarian chick turns out to be an S&M monster...And so is her grandmother! The lead character winds up not fully traumatized, more in a daze.
- Beerfest at first makes it look like Jay Chandrashekar's character is being taken advantage of, he fades in and out of beer goggle vision of the woman he picked up at the bar. When he wakes up and turns over, he stares up at the ceiling camera and says "Naaah, I knew all along!"
- In Super Troopers, while Foster is posing as a flasher in front of the police station, Ursula (his soon to be love interest) holds him at gunpoint from behind and uses a voice changing device to make him think he's about to be raped.
- In Super, Ellen Page rapes Rainn Wilson.
- Arguably at least played with, if not averted wholly. The build up to the scene is certainly played for laughs (Page's character is hilariously bad at seduction) but the actual rape is shown to be fairly traumatic for Wilson's character. It even deals with the guilt he feels afterwards (/he/ considers it cheating on his girlfriend, and is pretty skeeved out as Page is significantly younger than him) in a surprisingly grown up way.
- In the third Basket Case the sheriff's Seemingly Wholesome Fifties Daughter randomly turns out to be a Dominatrix who tries to rape Duane, much to the sheriff's annoyance.
- In Horrible Bosses, Jennifer Aniston's Depraved Dentist has her way with male patients while they're under the gas.

Literature[edit | hide]
- In Myra Breckinridge, the titular character anally rapes a man using a strap-on dildo. This act is generally construed as teaching the man a lesson and making a statement for sexual equality. The entire work satirized sex, gender, and sexual practices.
- Judith Krantz's novel I'll Take Manhattan's Maxi and her ex Rocco—at one point she grabs his penis during an argument, which leads to a hard-on, which leads to... well, him saying she raped him afterwards.
- In the first chapter of John Irving's The World According to Garp, a book that is otherwise largely concerned with gender equality, Jenny Fields mounts an unconscious, brain-damaged soldier with priapism in order to get pregnant. She goes on to detail this in her autobiography and is never called on it.
- In Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time, The Lancer and Fun Personified Matt Cauthon comes to the palace of Queen Tylin in his latest effort to help his friends. The queen decides that Matt would be perfect as her new boy toy. When he tries to get help from the awesomely powerful sorceress he's here to assist, she laughs and mocks him. Mostly because she misread the situation, she thought Mat was simply griping about his lover, and when she does find out how far Tylin is pushing Mat she regrets her mockery and tries to console him. However, this all happens rather briskly, since they're about to go hunting after an important MacGuffin and end up separated afterwards.
- In the same book, this is implied to have happened to Lan as well with a bit of mind raped mixed in. At least in this case another character points out that the rapist ought to be punished. Egwene decides to blackmail her instead. Rape of the minor villain Galina by another woman with some rather sadist tendencies is presented as karmic justice.
- The War World series has a female Havenite rape a genetically-enhanced Sauron at gunpoint in order to get pregnant with his "superior" child. She later frees him and his Ax Crazy Cold Sniper cellmate from a prison camp and again forces them to impregnate her as the first time didn't take.
- In the Red Dwarf novel Last Human, Lister is forced to marry a hideously ugly Gelf (Genetically Engineered Life Form). The situation is played mostly for laughs, but his emotions during the sex are touched on in a curiously realistic way.
- Porterhouse Blue: The rape of a college's only research graduate male student by his middle-aged bedder is graphically portrayed, but we never learn how it would have affected him because moments after the act starts they both die in a heating gas explosion.
- Mystery Science Theater 3000 Episode #610, The Violent Years features a scene where a young man is sexually assaulted by a group of four attractive high school girls. While William Morgan, the director of the movie (and Ed Wood, its writer) attempt (and, arguably, fail) to play the scene dead straight as a horrific and traumatizing crime, Mike and the 'bots have the typical male "What a lucky guy" reaction to these events, because the scene ended up being pure Narm.
[over shots of spinning newspapers]
Crow: Refuses to Press Charges!
Servo: Says: "Thank You Thank You Thank You Thank You!"
Mike: Hundreds of Men Flock to Crime Scene!
- Only a few episodes after he raped his ex-wife, Tommy on the dark comedy/drama series Rescue Me is drugged with roofies and raped by his needy, obsessive, psychotic girlfriend Sheila after turning down her offer to retire and run away with her with to live at her beach house.
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
- In the sixth season episode "Gone", Buffy, while invisible, "forces" oral sex on Spike, who has just told her to get dressed and get out. His reaction is a simple "Hey, that's not fair".
- Faith did try to rape and murder Xander. He jokes about it in a later episode, but this is likely due to cover his fears after she wakes up from a coma and goes on a rampage.
- General Hospital has sunk to a new low with a female-on-male rape storyline. Not for the actual rape of good-guy Jasper Jax by his sociopathic brother's ex-lover, but for the reaction of his wife and her hitman best friend (aka the moral centers of Port Charles). Carly accuses Jax of cheating while he's still bloody and bruised. Then she and Jason, her aforementioned sainted hitman best friend laugh at how silly the thought of Jax actually being raped is.
- In Life On Mars, Sam Tyler gets slipped a Roofie and ends up being both Chained to a Bed and raped by a woman. It's not really treated for comedy, except by Gene Hunt.
- Invoked in Veronica Mars. A whole plot line was about women being drugged and raped, then a guy got drugged and had an easter egg stuck up his ass. Everybody thought it was pretty funny, but Veronica, who is no stranger to rape, pointed out there was no reason for the different treatment.
- Initially partially demonstrated in season 5 of Peep Show when Mark's co-worker commits frotteurism by rubbing her bottom on him in a closet room until he comes and runs out. Then, some episodes later, Mark wakes up to find a woman he mistook for lesbian mounting him. He once again tries passing it off as an embarrassing misunderstanding, but this time shares it with Jez and Super Hans, who both remark it sounds like he was raped. Jez later even tells so to both the woman and her father, but the father just ignores it while the woman takes offense.
- Whilst the example where Mark wakes up having sex with the "lesbian" is discussed in a childish manner, the writers managed to sneak an adult topic into the plot when Jeremy and Super Hans not only argue that rape isn't ok regardless of the offender's gender, but discuss how all unwanted sexual contact is still rape:
Super Hans: [surprised] You've been raped?
Mark: ...a woman just continued to have sex with me after I asked her to stop. That's all!
Super Hans: Sounds like you were raped to me, Mark. Classic case.
Mark: It wasn't rape! It was... just a minor sexual assault. She never forced anything in my bum, so it's not rape.
Jeremy: ...well it's not bum rape, no.
- In the My Name Is Earl episode "I Won't Die With a Little Help From My Friends" when the titular character is in a coma his gurney falls out the back of an ambulance and gets caught on the grill of a passing semi. His friends are able to find where the driver lives and confront her. They find her about to marry the still-unconscious Earl, but it's implied that his friends have rescued him from rape. It later turns out that they were too late, as the doctor delivering a list of Earl's injuries includes involuntary orgasm, to which his ex-wife responds, "Oh my god, that crazy bitch tried to consummate the marriage!"
- In the Red Dwarf episode "Emohawk", Lister's gorilla-like bride attempts to forcibly consummate the marriage (he married her to get a part for Starbug), prompting Lister to flee.
- Rimmer is repeatedly raped by female crew members in Back in the Red after drinking liquid sexual magnetism (although being Rimmer, he doesn't mind the sexual attention), and the ending is Rimmer getting raped by the male prisoners in the brig. This one's sort of a gray area though, since it all turns out to be hallucinations, and Rimmer being the one to take the sexual magnetism virus in order to have sex with women who wouldn't consent without it would tend to imply he was raping the female crew members.
- In the novel Last Human which uses part of Emohawk as its plot, Lister isn't quite so lucky.
- Even though Al Bundy never wanted to have sex with his wife on Married... with Children, sometimes Peg just wouldn't take no for an answer, and hilarity would ensue. His son Bud sometimes caught the fancy of very large, very fat women whose appearances bordered on Nightmare Fuel, who dragged him offscreen despite his horrified screams. After one such experience, a traumatized Bud commented that "now I know how Tom Arnold feels."
- Including episodes (for Bud): Season 8, Episode 17 - "Valentine's Day Massacre" (by a hotel guest when he is posing as a bellhop while trying to bypass security. In the end he gets past the guard by luring him to the same hotel guest) Season 10, Episode 06 - "The Weaker Sex" (twice by the same woman, the biker in the bar)
- Commandant Grayza and John Crichton on Farscape, which granted is only funny once John finds an antidote to Grayza's date-rape pheromones and leaves her tied to the bed at the conclusion to an unpleasant romp through sexual interrogations.
- In the Flight of the Conchords episode "Girlfriends", naive Bret hooks up with the manipulative Lisa. After several attempts to get him into bed, she feeds him some stories about how women can become infertile if they're aroused but do not climax and how she is being shipped off to Iraq the next day.
- The '80s sitcom Too Close for Comfort had an episode called "For Every Man, There's Two Women" that has amiable dope Monroe abducted and raped by two women during his security guard job. Cracked has a suitably disturbing description here.
- In Dagvaktin, Óli is repeatedly raped by his boss, Brawn Hilda Gugga, with realistic psychological effects - every time it happens, Óli wanders around the hotel looking violated, and his Jerkass Woobie coworker calls him a 'sex slave'. It's played for very, very Black Comedy and most of the humour comes from the fact that Óli is so stupid he doesn't even realise he's being raped and isn't just a Chick Magnet.
- Averted in Fresh Meat. In one episode the characters, who are all first year students in college, drunkenly swap stories about their first sexual encounter. Kingsley, desperate to hide the fact that he's still a virgin, concocts a story about losing his virginity at the age of 12 to a woman in her 30's in order to impress them. This backfires, as the rest of the group point out the horrifying implications of this, and attempt to help him come to terms with what they believe happened to him.
- Series two of Psychoville introduces Hattie, a Fag Hag who agrees to a Citizenship Marriage with her gay friend's boyfriend so that he can remain in the country. Hattie becomes romantically obsessed with him, chains him up in the house and eventually rapes him, all played for laughs (though it's obvious she is slipping into insanity.)
- mr_melvis's "Whose Fantasy Is This, Anyways?" (released by Comfort Stand Recordings and free to download under Creative Commons) depicts a man picking up a girl in a bar, who proceeds to subject him to a lot of things he wasn't ready for, coldly telling him statistics about the porn industry and even delivering Bond One Liners after beating/electrocuting/burning him. She even tells him "It's time girls like me turn the tables on guys like you," before leaving the house with him bound up with a ball-gag.
- Alice Cooper's "Raped And Freezin'", where the narrator is picked up hitchhiking by an older woman. She rapes him, he escapes but is left stranded and naked in Mexico, and it's all played for humor.
- Slash and Fergie collaborated on a song called "Beautiful Dangerous". In the music video, Fergie drugs Slash's drink at a bar and drags him home to date rape him.
- In the Filk Song Banned From Argo by Leslie Fish, in which the crew of the Enterprise get, well, banned from Argo, Nurse Chapel uses an "odd green potion guaranteed to cause Pon Farr" to take advantage of Spock. This is Played for Laughs and treated no more seriously than Scotty and Chekov's drunken parking violation.
- In The Comedy of Errors two men's twin brothers show up in town and Hilarity Ensues. Dromio of Ephesus is engaged to Nell. Dromio of Syracuse shows up and is mistaken for his brother, chased about by Nell and so on. He finds her repulsive and spends a good bit of the day avoiding her. In many adaptions Nell chases Dromio of S. around the stage, sits on his lap, paws at him, etc. This is all played for laughs. Not to mention the implications of Antipholus of S. spending the day in the company of his twin brother's wife ...
- Older Than Feudalism: In Aristophanes' The Assemblywomen (of Ecclesiazusae), a new law is enacted declaring that before any man may have sex with a beautiful woman, he must screw an ugly one (and a mirror provision for women). The second act has a couple of old hags dragging off a young man who'd shown up at his (young and presumably beautiful) lover's house.
Video Games[edit | hide]
- One of the missions in Bully involves driving off kids who harass Edna, Bullshith's obligatory frumpy and slovenly cafeteria lady, while she's on a "date" with Dr. Watts, the chemistry teacher. Unbeknownst to Watts, Edna has slipped sedatives in his coffee, and once the mission is over, the viewer is treated to a (mercifully brief) cutscene of Edna dragging Watts to a nearby sleazy hotel.
- In Maniac Mansion, when male kids are caught by Nurse Edna, she says "How silly of me! I should've tied you to my bed!" This line was exempt from the NES port.
- Actually attempted in Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 4: The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood: Just when Guybrush is about to answer to his criminal charge, a Poxed Elaine barges into the Flotsam Courthouse, threatening to pillage and plunder for "spoils, swags, booty and boodle", then sees him and calls him a "bonnie lass" before adding, "Step into me captain's quarters and let me ravish you silly!" and doing a freaky waltz with him. But then she sniffs his jacket and, thinking that he had an apparent affair with Morgan, triggers a Berserk Button as Elaine charges after her in an attempt to kill her.
- If you get grabbed by a Vampire in Grabbed By the Ghoulies, you will be yanked inside her coffin, the coffin will rock, she will make rather... interesting noises, and you will take damage gradually until you shake free.
Web Comics[edit | hide]
- May have happened to the titular character of Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire on his first date with Rachel Hart, a literal amazon who likes to break things with her face. How they hooked up to begin with is never mentioned, but since this incident involved kitty-ears and a bell, even Dominic's ladyfriend, Luna, is inclined to agree that it's pretty funny. Dominic himself seems to recall it more with rueful embarrassment than with horror, as well. This attracted some controversy, but quickly took a back seat to what followed.
- The protagonist of Something*Positive, Davan, was raped while in a drugged state by Kim. Though played for laughs, Kim is later shown accompanying Davan to a rape survivors' support group. The topic was also handled more maturely: When the subject of male rape is brought up, Davan recognizes that some men wouldn't be bothered by unsolicited sex, but they would have every right to be, as opposed to most proponents of male rape who say men would not and cannot be disturbed by a woman raping them. Kim also goes through therapy for issues, having apparently done it in the past to other men.
- Davan's rejection letters for bad plays in cartoon form: "Cap'n Hoot-Hoot says a better title for your play would be 'Rape-Rape: A Tale of Rapening'. Also, your next play should have a little less rape in it."
- In Girls with Slingshots, Candy attempts to rape Chris; this is played partly for laughs, though the character is portrayed as having done something at the very least tasteless.
- In the Book of Genesis Lot's daughters get him drunk to rape him. The Web Comic Holy Bibble plays this for incredibly squicky laughs.
- Seemingly played for laughs by Old Man Death in Girl Genius while reciting the story of how he met his wife.
- In Oglaf, the thief Vanka rapes monks as a means of making them break their vows because ancient secrets aren't necessarily hard to figure it out when you practically carve it into a visible statue.
Web Original[edit | hide]
- Played for very uneasy laughs in a Something Awful Thanksgiving article that featured the author falling into a coma while at his Gonk acquaintance's house (he was so desperate to leave that he thought drinking bleach was a good idea). He goes on to describe his intense coma dreams where he has sex with everything from Psylocke (who "used her psychic powers to make him pee") to a zebra. In the middle of a Does This Remind You of Anything? sword forging scene he wakes up from the coma to discover Miss Gonk "cripple-fucking" him. It turns out she had told the hospital staff they were married and she wanted to consummate their relationship. And then you remember that this is semi-autobiographical....
- Sonic Shorts
Amy: "Heeeeey Sonic the Hedgehog, guess who lost their virginity! *chloroform* You did!"
- Occurs in Family Guy with the use of shadows, in which a nymphomanic Lois forces herself onto Peter (taken to abstinence, after being indoctrinated by an abstinence-only educational program). Doesn't take much for him to give in.
- In one episode, Meg was captured by criminals after her family sent her out to get Peter a sandwich while the house was still being robbed. Meg becomes obsessed with her captor in a very short period of time (given her desperation for a boyfriend) and tries to force herself on him. The robber is very clearly traumatized, and even goes so far to charge Meg with rape, which the police take her in for, instead of the robber for armed robbery.
- This also happened in "Lethal Weapons". Lois had taken up martial arts and as a consequence, becomes aggressive as hell. One night Peter tries to use the "headache" excuse, but Lois doesn't take no for an answer. The next morning Peter cries about it to Brian.
Peter: Last night, Lois was the MAN!
- In "Dial Meg For Murder", Meg, turned thuggish after being in prison, rapes Peter with a loofa.
- In Peter-assment" Peter's boss Angela sexually harasses him and tries to get him to have sex with her.
- Ed, Edd n Eddy: the played-for-laughs romantic pursuit of the eponymous Eds by the Kanker sisters is incredibly violent and completely unrequited, even in the context of a cartoon, and would be considered far less funny in today's society if the genders were reversed.
- The roles WERE reversed in one episode where the Eds (well, Double-D really) came up with the idea of using reverse psychology by feigning a similar over-the-top romantic interest in the Kankers in order to get them off their backs for good. It would have worked, too, except Eddy choked at the last minute, the Kankers caught on, and went right back to chasing the Eds.
- In The Movie after Eddy's brother turns out to be such a Jerkass that everyone in the cul-de-sac cheers on the Eds for knocking him out, the Kankers drag his unconscious body back into his house, and sexual harassment probably isn't something they'd be beyond using as "punishment".
- Fifi le Fume from Tiny Toon Adventures, who pursues reluctant boys with the same degree of enthusiasm that her predecessor pursued women, and the accompanying notion that her antics are a bit more acceptable for contemporary audiences because of her gender.
- Futurama, "Amazon Women In the Mood" involves Fry, Zapp Brannigan, and Kif being sentenced to "Death By Snoo Snoo" by burly muscular Amazons. Their response is a combination of cheers and groans of pain as they are locked in a room and the entire tribe systematically lines up to have their way with them. They are rescued (eventually) before their pelvises are crushed, and no lasting damage is done. (Note that Fry and Zapp don't seem to have any resistance to the idea itself; Kif, who does, manages to escape it, and is rescued by Amy.)
- "How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back" had Inspector Morgan Proctor come to inspect Planet Express. She found Fry's slovenliness incredibly hot, because she spent all her time with neat freaks. She was visibly giving him favor for sleeping with her, and he eventually tried to end the relationship, but made the mistake of sweeping items off a desk in anger. She grins and leaps on him. ("Dirty boooy!") Basically, they do every single thing Sensitivity Training warns against, though gender-flipped from the expected. It's played for both Comedy and Drama.
- An episode of John Callahan's Quads had the hippy girlfriend of the quadriplegic protagonist have sex with him while he was asleep, in the episode where he sold his soul to the devil to be able to get it up. He is somewhat distressed, but this is more because he's been having nightmares of going to hell and she doesn't seem to notice.
- In The Venture Brothers episode "Dr. Quymn, Medicine Woman", the title character's twin daughters Nancy and Drew think that Dean is cute so they try to sleep with him. However Dean has a crush on Triana Orpheus, is generally naive, and does not want to sleep with them, so they pin him down and force him to. Luckily for Dean, Hank called for help.
- In The Simpsons episode "The Ziff Who Came to Dinner", and arguably "Strong Arms of the Ma".
- Subtly implied that this happens at the end of the Woody Woodpecker cartoon A Fine Feathered Frenzy. Gorgeous Gal who had a sexy voice aggressively attempted to seduce Woody Woodpecker but he was turned off by her weight and age. Woody tried to get away but she eventually dragged him into a submarine. Next a priest popped out of the sailing vessel and hung a 'JUST MARRIED' sign around the hatch. The submarine sailed off with cans on strings attached to it to end the film.
- A Running Gag in Archer, in which Cheryl does this to Cyril once, then uses the threat of blackmail to force him to sleep with her anytime she wants.
- Girls Bravo: Kosame's actions towards Kirie. That is all.
- The abuse of Mikuru by Haruhi in Haruhi Suzumiya may not be rape in a strictly technical sense, but it is openly sexual and obviously very disturbing to the victim. After one such day of molestation, Mikuru even asks Kyon if he'll take her if she becomes "ruined for marriage".
- Excel Saga the anime has the infamous 26th episode, which involves Excel and Hyatt switching bodies and individually winding up in a love hotel together (for entirely different reasons). Excel (in Hyatt's body) proceeds to sexually assault Hyatt's breasts (in Excel's body) in plain view for a whole thirty seconds or so. (And that's not even the weirdest stuff that happens in that episode...)
- In episode 16., Excel is violently raped off-screen by the robot Ropponmatsu II, and it's played as over-the-top slapstick comedy.
- In Minami-ke, in the final minutes of the final episode of the first season, Hayami drinks too much "special imported juice" and assaults Kana (we don't get to see the results, but it's implied she succeeds). The whole thing is played entirely for laughs.
- Shinra in They Are My Noble Masters is constantly raping and molesting her younger sister Miyu, adding incest on top of it.
- Aoi from Rizelmine tried to use Kyouko's mind control helmet to get Ryunosuke to sleep with her. However, he is not on the other end by the time she gets the remote and she ends up getting raped herself by three girls and a dog. She later ends up in a relationship with one of them.
- In Ryofuko-chan, the protagonist's servant Koukin takes over her body, only to start harassing her classmates and her teacher. Sure, he is in the body of an 8-year old girl and likely can't do much damage that way, especially to an adult—but it still leads to some rather disturbing scenes. After they re-swap he does get his comeuppance though.
- In the Shonen Sunday manga Kyonyu Hunter (D-Cup Hunter) by Yasunaga Kouichirou, a Pettanko is dumped by the stupid guy she wanted as her boyfriend because, as he admits himself, she had everything a man could wish, except boobs. Her revenge? Dress up as a super-heroine, attack big-breasted women and subject them to Humiliation Conga just to eliminate the competition (although the premise drifts to just humiliating busty women who get on her nerves).
- Kaoru from Zettai Karen Children is seen to harass Oboro on several occasions. Sure, Kaoru is only ten years old, but it still gets rather poignant when you realize that she basically is a human weapon of mass destruction, so Oboro would not really be able to defend herself if push came to shove.
- In volume eleven of Love Hina, Motoko is tied down and raped off-panel by Keitarou's sister Kanako.
- The running gag of Miyuki Chan in Wonderland has its title character getting sexually harassed, stripped, molested and nearly raped by other female characters. Mind you this is All Just a Dream... Or Was It a Dream?
- Chapter Nineteen of Girl Friends by Morinaga Miruku starts with a non-canon two page gag involving its two female main characters, Akko and Mari. Mari wakes up one day and finds a cat bringing her a suddenly four inch tall Akko. They decide to go to school that day by having Akko ride between Mari's breasts. Unfortunately, there is a huge crowd in the train and Akko is starting to get crushed. Akko decides at that point that she's safer down below. First cue some noises from Mari, then cut to the scene at school where a traumatized Mari insists that she's never taking Akko to school again with Akko insisting she had nowhere else to hide.
- Morinaga Miruku seems to like nonconsensual lesbian sex, since in her manga Bunny's Road she introduces Kurahashi, who works as a maid in a bunny-themed night club. Kurahashi gets "punished" by her female boss every time she makes a mistake—which happens quite often. Mind you, this involves the use of a carrot. Later Kurahashi even gets assaulted by her own trainee, and this is all played for laughs.
- In Kamen no Maid Guy Naeka receives a letter from a Secret Admirer and spends the episode debating whether to go through with meeting him. Kogarashi warns her about love and that if she meets him she should be willing to go all the way. However when she goes to meet the mystery man "he" turns out to be a Schoolgirl Lesbians Stalker with a Crush named Saki. She tries to run away but learns too late what the maid guy meant by "going all the way" as he traps her.
- Reika from Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun might be a huge pervert with a love of watching gay men but she herself is straight with a giant crush on Shungo. Unfortunately, his sister Ryoko does not believe her and regularly molests her despite Reika's protests.
- Makoto from Chocotto Sister already walks on thin ice with her groping of Chitose's breasts, but she really crosses the line when she forcefully removes Yurika's dress.
- In Cosplay Complex, lesbian pedophile Jenny tries to sneak into the bed of the Token Mini-Moe Athena to sleep with her. However she ended up in the bed of Chako's Hot Mom Sachiko who says that she is a lonely widow that is glad to have some company in bed. She then rapes the now reluctant teenager.
- Another episode had a near miss as Ranko the head of a rival cosplay club and the defending champion cornered Reika in a storage room and began to molest her.
- Sousou from Koihime Musou has the habit of forcing girls into sex with her. She is shown succeeding on at least one occasion—and then there are her efforts to get into Kannu's pants.
- In Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, Yuuto's troublemaking Bottle Fairy roommates Ruko and Yukari at least go way over the line "playing with" Shiina when she comes over to ask him on a date and he's not there. The episode ends with her trapped under a Scenery Censor table with them doing something to her, as she screams "Sto-plea... stop, ah! Yuuto! Hurry, come back!"
- In Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou Sai was given some medicine by Fujiko that was supposed to make him nicer and not become the demon king; however it is really a Love Potion which will cause him to be loyal to her. Kena then took the medicine and cooked it into rice which she later served to a big gang that was attacking Sai.
Comic Books[edit | hide]
- In the fifth volume of Empowered, Ocelotina binds poor Emp with Duct Tape for Everything and spanks her during an interview, with the intention of putting it up on her website as a paid download.
- This isn't the first time Ocelotina has done something like this. Before deciding to take on a superhero identity herself, the girl who'd become Ocelotina decided to kidnap Emp and hold her for ransom. Of course, since Emp's powers come from her suit, she had to be naked save for her mask.
- In a fortunately uncharacteristic passage in Love and Rockets, we discover that on the evening when Daffy first met Maggie and Hopey, they set her up to get raped by Depraved Bisexual Lois (with a nail-studded baseball bat, no less) and only rescued her at the last minute.
- Touhou fandom has something of an obsession with this trope. Ranging from the cheery Fan Vid Touhou Sweets! The Cruel Sisters and the Suffering Maid about cosplay and This and That (very addictive), to the constant portrayals of Yuuka as a rape machine, it is clear that Gensoukyou can be a scary place for those that aren't careful.
- One Hentai short showed a girl constantly getting gang-raped much to her horror, then major confusion, and it's revealed that her friend stuck a "Fuck me" sign on her back.
- The Hentai anime Newscaster Etsuko (released in the west as Foxy Nudes) contains this example: Etsuko urges a criminal to brutally rape the girl he kidnapped to get higher ratings, culminating in the girl's death when she gets shot by a sniper. Played with in that the comedy stems not from the rape itself (which is actually quite painful, what with the victim being the only remotely sympathetic character in the whole thing) but from the in-universe audience's reaction. Said reaction, however, is way too exaggerated to have any real satirical value, thus making the humor fail.
- In chapter 253 of Mahou Sensei Negima, Paru creates a temporarily golem clone of Negi to help ease many of the non-Pactio'd girls into the practice (as the version of the ritual she tells them involves a 'deep kiss')). Said clone ends up rather...aggressively kissing Akira in a way that's purposely rather...suggestive.
- Even though he never raped any one Lovable Sex Maniac Fukuyama from Girls Bravo (the brother of the above mentioned Lisa) deserves to be mentioned for all of his gropes of girls' breasts, and peeping on them the only reason he has not been arrested seems to be his money.
- In Yamatogawa's Witchcraft Hentai, Sara hypnotizes Kaoru into "raping" Megumi as punishment for Megumi's Heel Face Turn. After several Beat Panels of Sara looking increasingly less triumphant and a caption of "thirty minutes later" with nobody feeling especially punished, Sara finally tells them to cut it out.
- Male Maze in Maze Megaburst Space forces his way onto girls several times in the manga; quite often such girls awake next morning sharing bed with a very embarrassed female Maze.
- Nerima Daikon Brothers, episode 2: A gonk-ish Korean Pachinko owner tries to rape Mako, all set to a daunting musical number with Lyrical Dissonance.
- Black Butler has a scene where Sebastian rapes a nun. It's played for humor, mostly coming from her crying and commentaries from other characters.
- Averted in Ranma ½. When the entire school gets stuck on an island, all the male high school students eat a certain fruit that makes them believe any girl they see is their newlywed wife. Ranma is female at that point with no hot water in sight. The guys start talking about how they want to do what all couples do on their honeymoon and when they pin down Ranma, he assumes the worst is about to happen. Turns out that all they want to do is get tan, take goofy pictures, and feed her like a particularly lovesick lover might.
- Early chapters of the Lupin III manga bordered on this and "It's Not Rape If You Enjoyed It". The anime toned things down substantially.
- Nearly every sex scene in the OVA The Invisible Stud. It's about a horndog who turns invisible. At the end of part two, all of his victims take the same invisibility potion after one of the girls falls in love with him, and they rape him in return.
- Bakemonogatari: otherwise-morally-pure Araragi makes a point of thoroughly molesting Hachikuji as a form of greeting and as payback for her being a brat. The fact that she's actually a ghost may or may not help. It's treated mostly as playful teasing going a little too far.
Comic Books[edit | hide]
- In 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Mina, Quatermain, and Nemo investigate a mysterious series of pregnancies at a girls' school (they chalk it up to the Holy Spirit). Turns out it's The Invisible Man raping the students. Elements of it are Played for Laughs, particularly Polly's reaction.
- The eventual fate of the Invisible Man however is definitely NOT this trope, as being violently raped to death by Mr. Hyde is portrayed more as a horribly gruesome thing.
- As number fourteen this Spider-Man Remix Comic shows, rape may not be funny, but the concept of "rape dollars" is.
- This other strip by Quino, although it's not the (attempted) rape per-se the one that's been Played for Laughs.
- Lust In the Dust. Rosie (played by Divine) is gang-raped by a group of desperados - or seemingly so, as the scene shifts to where Divine is still begging for more, while the desperados are begging her to lay off.
Rosie: (sighing) What a bunch of deadbeats.
- Crank contains a scene where the main character, who will die without an adrenaline rush, sexually assaults his girlfriend in broad daylight on a crowded public street. She screams and tries unsuccessfully to fight him off; they gather a mixed-gender crowd that watches but doesn't try to help her in any way. Then she decides she wants it half-way through.
- Elizabeth and the Monster in Young Frankenstein, then veers into Victim Falls For Rapist territory.
- Pavi Largo from Repo the Genetic Opera practically embodies this trope. As one of the creators put it, "Of course, in a movie like Repo, the comic relief is a murderer and a rapist." If the rapes weren't enough for you, when he's finished with the women, he cuts off their faces and wears them as masks.
- Planned to occur in Blazing Saddles, of all places:
Hedley Lamarr: What are we going to do about Rock Ridge?
Taggart: I got it, I got it! We'll work up a Number 6 on 'em.
Hedley Lamarr: Number 6? I'm afraid I'm not familiar with that one.
Taggart: That's where we go a-ridin' into town, a-whampin' and whompin' every living thing that moves within an inch of its life! Except the women folks of course.
Hedley Lamarr: You spare the women?
Taggart: Nah, we rape the shit out of them at the Number 6 Dance later on!
- Later in the movie though, we learn it didn't quite go as planned:
Pastor (addressing the town): Sheriff murdered, crops burnt, people stampeding, and cattle raped.
- Early in Rush Hour 3, Carter (Chris Tucker) is on traffic duty and arrests two attractive women. While they are handcuffed and bent over the hood of their car, he calls Lee and essentially offers to let the girls off the hook if they go on a date with the two. It's a perfect storm of Unfortunate Implications about Black men, the LAPD, and this very trope.
- In Overboard, a rich bitch loses her memory and is persuaded by a handyman she'd been mean to that she is his wife. As this is billed as a romantic comedy, we're encouraged to enjoy the joke being on her and root for the handyman in what is presented as a harmless revenge as he makes her cook and clean and be mother to his brood of unruly sons. Naturally, we're not encouraged to ponder too deeply on the fact that he's also having her sleep with him. Nor does our heroine apparently think any the less of him when she regains her memory. Cue happy ever after...
- Although he did make a possibly not too serious attempt to sleep with her straight off, once she made it clear she wasn't comfortable with the idea he backed off (and, er, made her sleep on the couch). They didn't sleep together until some way into the deception, after they'd genuinely falling for each other. Of course, sleeping with a woman who's got amnesia and thinks she's your wife is pretty dodgy whatever way you look at it.
- In Idiocracy, it is repeatedly stated that Rita is going to be gang-raped if Joe/Not Sure stops vouching for her as his "girlfriend."
- The film Meet the Applegates deals with a family of giant amazonian bugs who disguise themselves as humans in order to infiltrate human society, then their teenage daughter is raped and impregnated by the school's most popular boy. The rape is played for laughs.
- The 1960s sex comedy What's New, Pussycat? has Peter Sellers as a deranged Viennese psychiatrist who bemoans his unrequited desire for a patient: "Every time she sees me, she screams - because every time she sees me, I attack her!"
- In the Pythonesque Yellowbeard, the title character often grabs nearby women and drags them off camera to rape them noisily, and it's implied every time that both parties enjoyed the experience.
- Strongly implied in War of the Roses: Michael Douglas' character chases his wife to the attic, pins and forcibly kisses her, and is apparently intent on raping her. She stops struggling and begins responding in kind. The camera focuses on him making "that face" of pleasure as he lays back - only to do an Eye Take and start screaming. Cut to her dragging him to the open trapdoor and dropping him several feet to the floor below on his back.
- The Italian 70s comedy Amici Miei has one of these—the girl not only is raped, she is impregnated and yelled at and humiliated by her father ("Putana!"). Said father then goes to confront the rapist, and finds out he's a huge menacing guy, which makes it all really funny because he can't kick his ass. Most likely a case of Values Dissonance, as the film is rife with sexist and other politically incorrect jokes.
- Several Sarah Silverman jokes, including her Crowning Moment of Funny in The Aristocrats, as well as her line "I was raped by a doctor. Which is a very bittersweet experience for a Jewish girl."
- Milked bone dry in the hopelessly dated 1966 "adult" comedy The Swinger. A running gag involving Robert Coote's dirty old man character has him selecting a series of pretty young secretaries, apparently to rape them. We later find out nothing happened but lots of chasing and attempted seduction, but still... Later on, Tony Franciosa takes Ann-Margret to a sleazy motel and chases her around the bed, trying to force himself on her.
- Inverted Trope in The Other Guys. An extremely depressing Irish ballad is sung by one of the protagonists about an Irish soldier's love for a girl. Returning from war, he finds that five British soldiers "had their way with her". A resounding chorus clarifies that it was consensual. Most of the humor comes from how it's sung, but consent is the punchline.
- A number of Frankie Boyle jokes, aiming for Crosses the Line Twice.
- In Once Upon a Time in America, Noodles rapes the woman during the diamond merchant heist - turns out she's a nymphomaniac and encourages him personally whilst pretending to resist out loud. The comedic effect is played up with a one-liner: the other guys are doing all the work while Noodles is engaged, then when the robbery is finished Max asks, "You coming? We're going...".
- Higher Learning: A college freshman girl is brought along to a rush party by some other girls and encouraged to drink alcohol until she stinks of the stuff. She then retires to the dormitory's upstairs room with an Affably Evil fratboy, where they lay on the bed and he reaches under her dress and lowers her panties. As they go into it, the girl starts to have second thoughts and urges the boy to stop for a moment and put on a condom; he ignores her. After struggling and screaming a bit, the girl breaks free and flees down the stairs and out of the dormitory, with the rapist awkwardly pursuing her with his trousers around his ankles. The mostly male crowd, not understanding what has just happened, laugh and applaud. It's clear the crowd is laughing at the rapist rather than the victim, but it's still uncomfortably inappropriate humor in the midst of a tragic scene.
Literature[edit | hide]
- The novel Money by Martin Amis features a scene where the main character tries to rape his gold digging girlfriend but is so drunk and unenthusiastic he gives up, just before a kick to the nuts floors him.
- The comedy book Curious Pleasures (a glossary of unusual fetishes, ostensibly written by a Victorian scientist) mentions a lady who told her maid to find a man to pretend to break into her house and rape her. Shortly afterwards, she found a man breaking into her house, and happily allowed him to have his way. The next day, the maid told her that she hadn't been able to find a suitable participant yet, and the guy had been a real burglar, "although it should be noted that her complaints commenced only after this discovery."
- In Interesting Times:
Cohen: I've got to go and have a talk with Old Vincent. Not that there's anything wrong with him, at all. It's just that his memory's bad. We had a bit of trouble on the way over. I keep telling him, it's rape the women and set fire to the houses.
Rincewind: Rape? That's not very—
Cohen: He's eighty-seven. Don't go and spoil an old man's dreams.
- The entire plot of Donatien Alphonse Francois de Sade's novel Justine. Her constant life of being raped is placed in deliberate contrast to how pious and innocent she is. The typical reaction is more Dude, Not Funny than anything else.
- Voltaire used this on occasion in his stories. For example in L'Ingénu, the hero, (a Frenchman raised by Native Americans) believes himself married to the heroine and thus sneaks into her bedroom to enforce his rights and her fighting him off is poor behavior in his culture. Also, Candide fits both this and rape of men by men by having a lot of humor that Crosses the Line Twice about several female characters and one male one being the victim of multiple gang rapes and occasions of the Scarpia Ultimatum.
- Done in a comedic, theatrical rendition of Candide where a narrator tells the audience that a female character is raped. The extras playing soldiers shadow her, then toss her in the air at which point she screams out. The narrator then says just, "Repeatedly." She's tossed up again, and her next shout is not exactly... displeased... with what's going on.
- In Robert A. Heinlein's The Number of the Beast, newlyweds Zebediah and Dejah Thoris Carter (Yes, really) are travelling to Another Dimension in a flying car (long story) when DeeTee complains that her husband (who is busy piloting the vehicle at the time!) isn't being amorous enough. He then claims that he'd rape her repeatedly, if his seatbelt weren't in the way.
- The writer John Barth likes this trope a lot. In his novel Letters, a plot about a serial rapist drugging and impregnating women is played for laughs. Rape is also treated lightly at best in books like The Last Voyage of Somebody the Sailor and Giles Goat-Boy. There's also a lot of it in The Sot Weed Factor, but that could be attributed to the fact that it's basically a Spiritual Successor to Candide (with some of Fielding's Joseph Andrews thrown in).
- In the prologue to Academ's Fury of Codex Alera, a high-ranking knight is repeatedly advising that the First Lord take a concubine to bed to relieve some stress. When the First Lord says he won't dishonor his wife by doing so, and that said wife won't go to bed with him herself, the knight bluntly suggests he lace her wine with a drug and "split her like a plow." The First Lord's only response is to dryly note that the knight is such a romantic.
- In MASH (novel) it is explained that Trapper's nickname came because he raped his prom date on a train, because he wanted to try "it" in a train. When a security agent caught them, she screamed "he trapped me!" Hilarity ensued, and half of New England knows the story.
- An unfortunately famous example was an episode of the French comedy shorts Un gars Une fille. The show told the daily lives of the constantly-bickering Jean et Alexandra. This episode had Alexandra getting her head stuck into the opening of her washing-machine. Cue Crowning Moment of Funny with Jean mocking her. But it didn't stop there. We actually saw Jean untying his belt and putting his knees on the floor. Then the screen fades to black, which in the show generally indicates the moment where you are supposed to laugh... The spectators didn't. At all.
- You Rang M Lord has as one of its mostly positive characters an aristocrat who has impregnated five of his previous maids and has intentions upon the sixth. In several episodes, she hides from him in terror, and in one he actually manages to jump her (the episode ends there, but apparently no actual rape resulted.) Then again, it's also played for laughs when he's successfully raped by the woman he's supposed to marry (and no, he did not enjoy it.)
- Keeping Up Appearances often ends with Hyacinth being chased by some amorous old man; it is supposed to be funny because she is such an annoying, overbearing character.
- Early episodes of Mash had attempted rapings of Margaret being played for laughs. Even the writers want to pretend they never happened.
- Mad TV once did an "update" spoof Laverne and Shirley 2000 in which Laverne and Shirley are portrayed as two lonely sex-starved women who get into some trouble after shooing out Lenny and Squiggy when a couple of punkish-looking guys show up and offer them Roofies as a "party" drug. Before they can have their way with the passed-out women, however, Lenny and Squiggy make their return and use some stolen guns to kill off the would-be rapists. Cutting to later, we see the guys recounting the story of their rescue to the gals after they've woken up. Then Laverne praises the guys and remarks that while she and Shirley were passed out "...you didn't take advantage of us! ...Did you?" Lenny and Squiggy start shifting uncomfortably in their seats and glancing around the room nervously, and then say in unison "Well..." and the show closes out with Laverne and Shirley fretting, albeit not altogether unhappily.
- Rimmer in Red Dwarf only had sex once in his life with an actual woman before he died the first time, with the ship's female boxing champion Yvonne McGruder. According to the recaps of the event, she had just finished a very intense match, and kept calling Rimmer by a different name, suggesting severe head trauma. The humor is clearly centered around Rimmer's complete inability to bed a woman unless she had a concussion. The canonical book gives greater detail, stating that Yvonne was attracted to Rimmer, and after the incident, thought she'd hallucinated it.
- The Attempted Rape of Grace on The Secret Life of the American Teenager was captured by a nearby building's security camera. The news station kept playing it like it was a blooper reel, and the general population found it to be funny too. Apparently the "humor" was supposed to be that Grace bowed her head and said a quick prayer before picking up a broken bottle and defending herself, or the laugh was supposed to be that her friend Ricky came rushing in to help her and he wasn't wearing a shirt. Either way, the reaction of most viewers was Dude, Not Funny.
- During the 1995 season of Saturday Night Live, Mark McKinney (of The Kids in The Hall fame) played a gangly, braces-wearing babysitter getting a ride home from the kid's father, (played by Chris Elliot) who's attracted to her and keeps giving her Zimas until she's barely conscious. It then cuts to him cackling like a madman in jail about doing it again and... and the scene ends. The audience was dead silent throughout the entire skit and pretty much sums up why that entire year (one of many) was bad and why Lorne Michaels described that season as being the closest he's ever come to being fired.
- The Are You Being Served episode "The Erotic Dreams of Mrs. Slocombe" has a rape-y ending where Mr. Humphries is overwhelmed with uncharacteristic heterosexual urges and jumps Miss Brahms in the middle of a ballet. The episode ends right there and you're left with the impression that Mr. Humphries impulsively rogered Miss Brahms, who rarely takes kindly to ungentlemanly sexual advances.
- Mr G., the over-excited drama teacher in Summer Heights High performs improv with his class, and starts off with: "Help, grandma's just been raped!"
- Jam has at least two. One sketch features a couple arguing about what seems to have been an affair on the part of the husband. The wife is relieved when he reveals that he wasn't having an affair with the woman—he was raping her. Then there's the "sex for houses" sketch, wherein a couple trying to buy a house agree to have sex with the seller 12 times in exchange for lowering the price. But when a new offer causes the seller to add more sessions to the arrangement, the couple ultimately decide to let him use the husband's mentally challenged sister in their place.
- Although most examples of this series are in the Female on Male category, Married With Children managed to include a Male on Female example as well - in an episode where Al grills burgers, the prospect of such a manly activity (grilling, finally eating meat) made him so horny he grabbed Peggy against her will a couple of times and dragged her off-screen to rape her. Like the Gender Flipped version, this is played as just as much laughs.
- A flashback on Scrubs explaining why Dr Cox and Jordan don't go on couple dates any more shows Creepy Swinger Doctor and his wife slipping them both roofies, and announcing "It's party time!" when they're unconscious.
Jordan: I think we should give them another chance.
- Barney Miller, Season 4 Episode 15, titled "Rape". Here, a woman comes into the police station distraught and says she's been raped. The husband, and, to a great extent, Barney, don't understand what the big deal is, assuming that it would be impossible for a rape to happen inside a marriage, since marriage implies a loving relationship and a greater sense of "consent". The District Attorney, a woman, and Lt. Dietrich, *do* understand the gravity of the situation (and just how wrong the rape was), and the husband's lawyer, though agreeing with Linden and the husband, wants the case to go ahead because he wants the fame associated with it. Dietrich, Lt. Harris and the DA spend the rest of the episode explaining how classless the husband was and how he needs to treat women with more respect. he episode ultimately concludes by treating the incident as if it was "just another marriage disagreement", with the husband agreeing with Harris that he was just uncouth and was just clueless about how to treat women properly (which raises the question about how he got married in the first place), learning, through the experience, just how to do it properly, causing his wife to forgive him and drop the whole matter. Perhaps the only reason why the episode works is due to Values Dissonance (social inequity, though improving, still had quite a bit of work to do when the episode aired in 1978)- it's doubtful now that such a scenario, with society's greater understanding of the real impact of rape, even in marriage, could be played for laughs today.
- Fresh Meat, a recent Channel 4 Sit-Com about first year college students, played with this. Through a convoluted series of events, one of the characters fears he may have raped a girl the night before (though it's made clear he didn't). Though rape is never played for laughs, his attempts to clarify what actually happened are.
- "Oasis" song by Amanda Palmer is a happy, upbeat song about a teenage girl who really likes the band Oasis, oh and she was raped. Caused a bit of a media controversy when it and the music video was released.
- The Armstrong and Miller Show features a highly offensive (dead baby style) parody of Fifties comedy singers Flanders and Swann. In one sketch, they sing the praises of Rohypnol.
- In fact this isn't far removed from the actual Flanders and Swann song Madeira M'Dear; it's alcohol instead of Rohypnol and the lyrics aren't quite so blunt about it, but in essence it's the same. Another of their songs jokes about the advantage of visiting a country whose word for "no" takes a very long time to say - by the time the girl's said it "it is usually too late".
- The Bed Intruder song, which plays a real-life attempted rape for laughs.
He's climbin' in your windows, he's snatching your people up! Tryna rape 'em, so y'all need ta hide ya kids, hide ya wife! And hide ya husband cuz they're rapin' everyone out here.
- The early Devo song, "Didn't know I was a Midget" has the narrator recounting tales of how he exploits his small stature to impersonate babies so that he can molest women who assume "It's all innocent fun." One squicky boast has him saying "I parked my can in her garage."
- In the Reefer Madness stage musical and Showtime adaptation, Mae's ballad of marijuana addiction climaxes in her belting out "Though the fun sometimes escapes me / When Jack gets stoned and RAPES ME!"
- In the stage version this is followed by a girl crossing the stage with a sign that reads 'Reefer gets you raped...And you won't care.'
- The film version has Mae shouting this out the window, cuing Stunned Silence and a milkman dropping the bottles he's carrying on the ground.
- In the musical semi-staged concert adaptation of Voltaire's Candide, Cunegonde is raped repeatedly when war breaks out.
Narrator: Cunegonde is raped.
Cunegonde: (thrown in the air) Ahhh!
Cunegonde: (thrown in the air again) Mmmmmm!
- The storyline of the character Prez in The Pajama Game basically revolves around him chasing every woman in the factory (where he is the president of the workers' union) around, no matter how much she refuses him. He even drags one into the woods at the company picnic, and it's never treated as anything but a light-hearted B-plot.
Babe: What happened to you?
Brenda: Stay out in the open, honey. Don't get down in them woods. (pause for laugh)
- Romeo and Juliet: Act 1 Scene 1's dialogue is chock full of innuendo about women being "thrust against the wall" and to "cutting off maidenheads".
Video Games[edit | hide]
- In Skies of Arcadia, Aika is being held prisoner when Vigoro comes by and hits on her. When she refuses his advances, he ominously walks towards her. When it cuts back, she's holding onto the window bars for dear life as Vigoro is basically trying to rape her. He does this repeatedly every time they meet.
- The Rance series. Black Comedy Rape since 1989. Rape to the East German national anthem since 1990. Strangely enough, Rape as Drama also has been around since 1989.
- In Disgaea Infinite, Mao starts approaching Flonne while excitedly panting and sweating. His reaction to her calling him a pervert and fleeing?
I see, so this is that "no means yes" situation I've read about in the comic books!
Web Comics[edit | hide]
- The web comic Randy and the Gang on www.morphinenation.com features WWE wrestler Randy Orton and various rapists from movies, television, and real life. The "gang" (a reference to the term "gang rape") talk nonchalantly about rape until Orton, who is portrayed as a super-rapist, exhibits his superiority at raping and derides his gang as "fucking amateurs".
- In Eight Bit Theater, a gag involved Black Mage telling about how he made out with White Mage... or how they were going to... then says he has access to Chloroform and how at least one of these things could be true.
- He once planned on getting White Mage drunk with "wine" purchased at Akbar's. When his teammates point out that the "wine" looks suspiciously like paint thinner and that White Mage could die if she drank it, BM replies that the body would be warm long enough to serve his purposes.
Red Mage: That...might be the worst thing you ever said.
- Another involved Lich expressing complete disappointment in his son and wondering if he really was his, but he knows for sure because he used freaky undead mind control powers on the boy's mother...
- A rather twisted version appears in the webcomic Deep Fried, in a story line which revolves around a child whose dad rapes her.
- Three Panel Soul: A sort of Poke the Poodle example.
- This is why Namine shouldn't drink in Ansem Retort, because she falls asleep after one hard lemonade and Zexion sells her for a buck a minute.
- An early set of strips from Chainmail Bikini drew a lot of ire. In the later added Alt Text, the authors describe it as "ZOMGRAPEGATE ‘07" and admit the joke was written poorly and didn't get the point across that they had in mind, which was a roleplayer grieving another player before the game began. Judge for yourself.
- From That Guy With The Glasses (and conceived by Lindsay Ellis, The Nostalgia Chick) Spooning With Spoony
- The most surprising thing about this sketch? Spoony mentions in the commentary that this version of the sketch was actually toned down from what they originally had in mind, because they quickly realised that they were delving into some very dark and very uncomfortable territory.
- In other videos, The Nostalgia Chick mentions rape or implied rape or intent to rape (eg; Mulan, Earth Girls Are Easy, "Top 11 Most Inescapable Christmas Songs", etc).
"Horrific implication time!" [hip thrusting and porno music]
- The notorious "Rape Rap," in which, based on a fan's grim comment on the Teen Witch review that their school saw more rape than rap, Lindsay has a friend of hers, stated in the video to be a convicted rapist, do a rap "instead," and it turns into a celebration of his crimes. Fan outcry, especially after an astoundingly insensitive forum post by Lindsay defending it, has put the incident firmly into Fanon Discontinuity.
- Go to 4chan some time, and mention the idea that rape can be a bad thing. You will find a lot of people who apparently disagree, and find it all very funny.
- This Horny Harry Meme pic.
- The Onion released this video: 
- Implied in Family Guy's "I Dream of Jesus":
Peter: Can I have that record? I love that song. I'll let you have sex with my daughter...
Waiter: I don't know. Let's see what your daughter looks like.
Peter: She's... uhh...[pans past Meg, pointing instead at an attractive stranger]...right there!
Waiter: Ok, I'll do her. But can you tell her to cry and beg me to stop?
Peter: I think that can be arranged.
- Not to mention the fact that it's very strongly implied that Quagmire is a sex offender who frequently date-rapes women.
- He finds an underaged cheerleader bound and gagged and says to himself "Dear Diary: Jackpot!"
- In one episode, a seeming promo for The Simpsons at the bottom of the screen turns into a Funny Background Event of Quagmire assaulting Marge Simpson, then killing the entire Simpson family (including Maggie) afterwards. It was actually a Dude, Not Funny to many, many viewers. Matt Groening (Simpson creator) almost ended his friendship with Seth MacFarlane over that scene which caused MacFarlane to double back and say: "Maybe we went too far."
- In The Movie, Stewie and Brian need to take Quagmire's RV. Stewie (in the driver's seat) starts hitting buttons at random on the dashboard, triggering Quagmire's "modifications" which lock the passenger's arms down and then forces their head into the driver's crotch.
- Another episode uses a similar gag when the Griffins go to Quagmire's lake house. Peter sits in a chair as Lois flips a light switch. This makes a nearby lamp spray Peter with knock-out gas, rips off his clothes, spreads his legs, and summons a mirror ball and porn music.
- Explicit in "Baby Not on Board":
- Not to mention the fact that it's very strongly implied that Quagmire is a sex offender who frequently date-rapes women.
Stewie: You damn fool, you're more useless than Aquaman.
(Cut to a woman running on the beach, bruised and crying, tripping over the sand dunes in an attempt to escape the large man chasing her. The man tackles her and pins her down. The woman continues to struggle underneath him throughout the scene.)
Woman: Help! Help! Somebody help! Rape!
Rapist: Scream all you want, nobody can hear you out here.
Aquaman: (popping out of the ocean some distance away) I can!
Woman: Aquaman, help!
Aquaman: (not moving) Hey! Hey! Hey, let her go!
Rapist: Or what?
Aquaman: (still not moving) Or, or... I don't know man, but you're lucky you're not doing that over here. In the ocean. Or else... Or I would stop you.
Woman: For God's sake, help! Do something!
Aquaman: (throws a starfish that lands ineffectually nearby) Oh, if you don't like starfish, you're going to be mad about what I just did!
Woman: Oh, God, help!
Aquaman: (still not moving) Oh, you're in for it now, buddy, I've got like five fish coming to help. (Fish swim around him.) Oh, oh, here they are.
Woman: Help! He's hurting me!
Aquaman: Well, maybe you shouldn't have led him on.
- Among the most horrible things Family Guy has ever done (and that's saying something), the gay marriage episode also makes a joke about Elizabeth Smart—a real life victim of child molestation—getting raped during her nine-month captivity. The punchline of the joke is that Elizabeth is so deeply traumatized by the ordeal that she's constantly thinking about rape, even when she's playing the piano. Jeez, hope she or her family wasn't watching at the time.
- Brian met a girl when went to college who attended a female self-empowerment seminar:
Speaker: Look to your left. Now look to your right. Chances are one of the men sitting next to you will try to rape you.
Man on the left: I'm not gonna rape you.
Man on the right: I might.
- In a rare mass-market example, Pepe Le Pew milked this dry over several decades of arguably funny shorts. While his antics may not have ever made it to genuine rape, few courts would consider it less than sexual harassment. Those episodes don't air much anymore, and most modern reinventions of the Looney Tunes omit that side of Pepe's characterization.
- An episode of Moral Orel had Orel impregnating dozens of women with a pastry bag in his attempts to justify his masturbation, given his beliefs and the lackluster advice on the subject given by his authority figures.
- Zapp Brannigan attempts this upon capturing the Feministers. He fails.
"Prepare to be boarded again and again."
- By virtue of its protagonist's nature, Ranma ½ fits the "Rape of Men by Men" subtrope on psychological grounds, and "Rape of Women by Men" from the visual and social effects (particularly since the men involved never know Ranma is originally a man): one of Ranma's greatest fears is to be abused by men while in female form, and the series indulges in making it happen. This goes from groping and fondling, to being kissed unwillingly, to outright threats of rape. Since Ranma is a very macho, self-assured character, this is meant to be funny, especially since none of the other female characters go through this. But since female Ranma, a master martial artist is always shown helpless and terrified, the "humor" is usually lost.
- Owen Harper in the first episode of Torchwood uses an Applied Phlebotinum alien perfume which makes a woman who initially wasn't interested desperately want to have sex with him, the woman's boyfriend is not pleased... until Owen uses the perfume again and it has the exact same effect on the boyfriend. He calls a taxi, though it's not made clear whether it was to get out of a sticky situation, or to shag both of them.
Group W's where they put you if you may not be moral enough to join the army after committing your special crime, and there was all kinds of mean nasty ugly looking people on the bench there. Mother rapers. Father stabbers. Father rapers! Father rapers sitting right there on the bench next to me!
