* ''Manga/FairyTail'' has Mard Geer, the ArcVillain of the Tartaros arc and the ''de facto'' leader of the Dark Guild [[LegionsOfHell Tartaros]]. He's an arrogant, LongHairedPrettyBoy whose power lets him create [[SomethingAboutARose thorns]] and [[PetalPower petals]], and he [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomps]] [[TheHero Natsu]] along with two other Dragon Slayers until [[DemonSlaying Gray]] arrives, which is when he ''actually gets serious''.

** God Serena, formerly the first-ranked of the Ten Wizard Saints and now a member of the [[PraetorianGuard Spriggan Twelve]]. Very flamboyant, and able to easily defeat [[spoiler:four Wizard Saints]] without breaking a sweat using [[spoiler:Dragon Slayer Magic]], of which he can use ''eight'' different types.
** In contrast to his imposing silhouette first seen, fellow Spriggan Twelve member Neinhart is an effeminate-looking man who wears armor adorned with painted [[SomethingAboutARose roses]] and is fond of using flowery, poetic language. His magic is very powerful in that it allows him to [[EnemySummoner summon]] people from his enemies' pasts, including ones they have barely won against. This allows him to [[spoiler:nearly kill Kagura and Jellal, and practically curb-stomp Erza]].

These male characters are badass nancy boys. They're often {{camp}}y, vain, and in many cases pretty, but they're also incredibly effective at what they do, and quite powerful. They may have combat skills, seduction ability that rivals James Bond's, or simply be [[TheChessmaster Chessmasters]] skilled in manipulating others. They can be gay or straight, good or evil, played for laughs or played seriously, but they're all dominant personalities who tend to get their way. They also tend to be romantically successful, attracting admirers, and often getting the girl--or boy, if they're into that.

* In some cases effeminacy is a tactic for these characters, a way to unsettle and intimidate their enemies, by the logic that "if he can still be badass and confident in his masculinity in that dress, his balls must be the size of watermelons and made of steel." They're still inherently effeminate characters, but they've realized that it throws people, and so use it to their advantage.
* It can also be seen as a sexual tactic, as in some universes acting girly seems to attract women (and in certain shows [[EvenTheGuysWantHim everyone else]]) in droves. This is possibly a case of {{truth in television}} as women seem to have an easier time trusting girly men, and thus girly men often use this as a tactic to get laid.

* ''Film/XMen'': When Professor X still has hair, his [[PrettyBoy porcelain doll-like face]] and [[InTouchWithHisFeminineSide nurturing personality]] make him the most androgynous male lead of the franchise. He's the most formidable telepath on Earth who can [[Film/X2XMenUnited kill anyone with a thought]], and he carries a streak of vanity which is a product of his upper-class upbringing (his mother was a haughty British {{Socialite}}). In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', Charles is a suave womanizer who is perfectly aware of how appealing he is, and he doesn't allow Hank to shave his head when he tests the Cerebro prototype ("[[NobodyTouchesTheHair Don't touch my hair]]"). In ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', he's pushing 50, yet he still takes delight in being hip and attractive by following [[TheEighties '80s]] fashion trends with a feathered mullet and a ''Series/MiamiVice''-inspired wardrobe. Even after Xavier becomes bald and loses his prettiness, he still adorns himself in [[SharpDressedMan snazzy suits]]. Saving the world is hard work, and he wants to look good doing it.

Heck, Creator/PatrickStewart even admits on the "Two Worlds, Two Battles" documentary of ''The Rogue Cut'' that his character "has been seen as something of a peacock over all these years," so Charles is more accurately a ''Professor'' Peacock.

* The Driver, from ''Film/{{Drive}}''. Yeah, he wears a bright white satin jacket with tight jeans and nice shoes, and being played by pretty-boy Ryan Gosling doesn't help… but when he's not stomping on peoples skulls, breaking arms with hammers, and being the best damn getaway driver ever, he's busy romancing Irene. Also, he's only really flamboyant in appearance--he doesn't say more than 20 sentences the whole movie--and as the movie goes on, he totally ignores the blood coating his nice clothes, so this is debatable.

* Eduardo Flamingo, who debuted in Creator/GrantMorrison's run with ''Franchise/{{Batman}}''. The Flamingo is a psychotic hitman. He was lobotomized by the mob and was recruited by them. Despite his name, as well as his pink uniform and vehicles, he is a sociopathic, mindless, killing machine, nicknamed [[ImAHumanitarian "the eater of faces"]], a title he has lived up to. He appears as an enemy of Damian Wayne in the future. His appearance is heavily inspired by the cover artwork for the {{Prince}} album ''{{Purple Rain}}''.

* Kyosui Izumi of the ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'' world. Flaming mannerisms, loves hitting on men he finds handsome, openly in love with his boss. Happens to be a nigh-unkillable zombie SuperSoldier, very handy with a bullwhip, whose favoured tactic is to wrap his limbs around an opponent and crush them like a constrictor snake. When in his monstrous form as the Luna Dopant, he can give the titular Kamen Rider a hard time even when he's not spawning armies of ''Mooks''.
** To a lesser extent, Izumi's actor, Genki Sudo; portrays the hilariously effeminate character described above, and happens to be a very capable mixed martial artist in real life.
