* In Xanauzumaki's [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]: [[AbridgedSeries the Abridged Series]], Ganondorf wishes to take over the kingdom [[spoiler:to compensate for his [[TeenyWeenie unbelievably small penis]]. His logic behind this is that if he can't have a big dick, then he shall '''BECOME''' one! To quote the Great Deku Tree, "You see, Ganondorf's penis is so small that the only way to compensate for it would be to obtain the powers of a god and [[WorldDomination conquer the entire kingdom of Hyrule".]]]]

* The entire message of ''DrStrangelove'' in one sentence: "Men make war to prove they have big dicks and it'll destroy the world now that there are nuclear weapons." In particular, GeneralRipper launches WorldWarIII specifically to compensate for his own sexual impotence, which he has blamed on the Soviets using InsaneTrollLogic.

* In the episode "Night Of The Nearly Dead" of ''Series/FatherTed'', the character Eoin McLove is an arrogant manchild who gets what he wants regardless of the effect it has on other people. Eventually, his PA makes him apologise and he confesses to Ted and Dougal: "I haven't got a willy".

* Exaggerated by dance duo Captain Ahab on "I Don't Have a Dick", in which the singer brags wildly about his material possessions (all of which have WebComic/AxeCop [[AwesomeButImpractical levels of awesomeness, but lack in terms of practicality]]) in between shouts of the TitleOnlyChorus. Subverted in the studio version, which features a monologue in which the singer points out [[spoiler: that there is absolutely no correlation between his lack of genitalia and his ridiculous levels of awesomeness.]]

* In the Someguy Series of mods for ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', there is a character named Charlie Halfcocked. It's an apt name, as he's prone to fits of anger, but also because he literally has half a penis; the other half got shot off. His weapon of choice is an absurdly large, seven-foot long Antimaterial rifle named The Penetrator.
