* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Kyoraku Shunsui and Isshin Kurosaki are both examples of Type 1, being buff, muscular, MANLY, badasses. They're also both very sexual, even perverted, characters.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Kyoraku Shunsui and Isshin Kurosaki are both examples of Type 1, being buff, muscular, MANLY, badasses. They're also both badasses with pervert sides. Shunsui's chest hair even gets hilariously mentioned when he faces [[spoiler: Lille Barro]] and Nanao threatens to shave it off his corpse if he does, which makes Shunsui complain about his "carpet" bweing very sexual, even perverted, characters.important to him.

* Creator/ChuckNorris proudly displays one during the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLO1YIWQuXE climactic fight]] with Creator/BruceLee in ''WayOfTheDragon''. It becomes a liability for him, though, as Bruce is able to grab onto it as a combat move.

* MichaelBolton in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bv5vMJKBAbo "Said I Loved You But I Lied."]] His shirt is open down to three buttons, showing off his chest hair while he sings from the top of a goddamned mountain and white horses run through fire on the beach below him.
* While [[JoshGroban Josh Groban's]] record company was trying to figure out how to initially market him before the release of his first album, they did a photoshoot by a pool that was an attempt to make him appear as a BoyBand member. Apparently, he fits this trope to a T. Or, considering the [[OldShame photoshoot being discussed]], T shirts weren't being applied. Although when the images were discovered, there were quite a few jokes along the lines of [[PizzaBoySpecialDelivery "So, ma'am, would you like me to check your oil?"]], it's pretty hard to find a fan who saw them that minds that at all.

Hairy chests can be seen as FetishFuel, especially in TheSeventies, when it was quite common for men to show off their chest hair with open shirts and plunging necklines. The gay "[[TheBear bear]]" community also finds hairy, hyper-masculine men to be extremely desirable. It is also common in the BaraGenre. On a woman, this is almost universally considered to be prime-grade {{Squick}} material, sometimes comically associated with a BrawnHilda.

'''Type 1)''' When combined with a buff, muscular physique, it's usually to emphasize [[TestosteronePoisoning manliness]] or Badassery. Alternatively, it may mark a mature man (ie 35 and older) in contrast to a cast of younger men [[note]]A case of RealityIsUnrealistic since most men grow chest hair during puberty, if they grow any at all[[/note]]. BadassBeard optional, but goes very well with it.
