Compare CelibateHero, PoliticallyIncorrectHero, HeManWomanHater, and StrawFeminist. See also TheUnfairSex for when the author or work, rather than a character, vilifies men. Unfortunately, this trope is somewhat TruthInTelevision in some circles. Let's leave it there.

* Sakurako Tenmaku from ''Manga/AiKora'' is known for being "stingy" toward men, stemming from an incident in middle school, where her friends turned on her because all the boys fell for her, though through no machinations on her part.
** On top of that, the only boy she really ''was'' interested in tried to [[RapeAsDrama rape]] her... [[spoiler: Or so she thought. He only came on to her physically, to which she freaked out and ran. Admittedly, he was rather forceful, but when the boy in question gets re-introduced, he turns out to be an okay guy and explains the [[PoorCommunicationKills misunderstanding.]]]]
** She also didn't like girls at first, but eventually got over it.

* Yasuna of ''Manga/KashimashiGirlMeetsGirl'' has a hard time around men. It extends to the point she can't even see the face of a male clearly. This is most clearly seen in a sketch of her classmates she made, in which the girls' faces are fully drawn while the guys' don't go beyond basic lines. Pre-GenderBender Hazumu, though, stands out as having some detail. This is partially due to the fact Yasuna [[DudeLooksLikeALady accidentally mistook him for a girl when he was still a "he"]] and was able to see him.
** Oddly, though, we [[BlindingBangs still can't see]] male Hazumu's face, and in fact do not through the entire series.
*** Yasuna has never been able to see men in the manga (not ever her own father!), thus not learning to like them. In the anime she just disliked them and began to not see any correctly.

* Mahiru Inami of ''Manga/{{Working}}'' has a deep-seated fear of men, believing they will attack her, though she seems alright around Souta. Except for the fact that she reacts to him like she does any man - with a punch to the face or gut.
** This is eventually revealed to be [[FreudianExcuse because her father]] did not want her to ever get close to another man, so he told her many bad stories about them and improved her physical strength by putting weights in her handbag so she would have the strength to fight them off.

* Kaede, head of student ethics of ''Manga/SeitokaiYakuindomo'' came to the show's formerly all-girl school due to her androphobia (which according to the third OVA started [[spoiler:in elementary school: Kaede was practicing the kanji for "man" and got asked if she was "frustrated"]]). It's so bad she refuses to patrol the floor the first years are on. While she is at first quite bitter over the fact that the school went co-ed, she later [[CharacterDevelopment starts working hard to get over her fear of men]].
** Unlike most examples on the page, Kaede's situation is played entirely for laughs, and when Hata asks her how many men have wronged her in her life, she claims no such things ever happened to her.
* Soi Fon from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' seems to dislike men. Given her outspoken distaste for Urahara, her abuse and blatant irritability towards her lieutenant Omaeda, and the fact that the only person in the universe that she isn't unpleasant towards is a woman (though she is very affectionate toward said woman's little brother), she may very well be uninterested in them.

* The protagonist of ''Manga/HououGakuenMisoragumi'' is a ButchLesbian who DoesNotLikeMen.. Which is bad news since her mom sent her to an All-Boys school full of {{Bishonen}} boys, to see if she would become straight (or at least Bisexual).

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', Boa Hancock, the WorldsMostBeautifulWoman, Warlord of the Sea, and ruler of [[AmazonBrigade the island of women, Amazon Lily]] is a ''notorious'' man-hater. She does, however, have a FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:The first men she saw in her life were the World Nobles, who enslaved her and her sisters for four years when she was just twelve.]] The only exceptions when it comes to her man-hating nature is Luffy, who she has fallen in love with, and Silvers Rayleigh, who helped her in the past [[spoiler:after she escaped from slavery]].

* Mai from ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai'' hates boys because [[ParentWithNewParamour she dislikes her step-father]]. The one exception is Yuuta, who is quite feminine looking and sensitive.. But Yuuta is transgender and [[IncompatibleOrientation not into girls]].

* The Minnesota, later International, Home Wrecking Crew tend to hate on the male members of the audience, excepting the few times they've done a HeelFaceTurn, the few times they were {{face}}s by {{de|signatedhero}}fault or when two thirds of them were in The Age Of The Fall with Wrestling/JimmyJacobs.

*** Also from ''Awakening'' is Kjelle, who has a mild case of this trope thanks to having a rather sizable chip on her soldier about men looking down on her for being a woman. Conversations in the DLC chapters also indicate she may be AmbiguouslyBi.

* Chloe Price of ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'', thanks to [[ControlFreak her step-father]]. She did have a very strong, loving relationship with her real father, but his death devastated her, and left her with no other positive male role-models.
** This is averted due to the events of Episode 3, but [[spoiler: Chloe still ends up the worse for it, Film/TheButterflyEffect style]].

* Numbuh 86 from ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' absolutely hates boys. Apparently she thinks that girls are much smarter than them, to the point that her favorite member of the Decommissioning Squad is Numbuh 91, because she's female.
** As time goes on, she seems to lessen this and is generally a bitch to both boys and girls equally.
** Amusingly, she also had a ToyShip with Numbuh Nineteenth-Century, who comes off as a bit of a StrawMisogynist after being unfrozen.

* From ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', a brief villainess Aresia the Amazon had a bitter grudge against men in general and was determined to purge the whole world of men. She managed to stir up a disease to kill every single male in the planet and she nearly succeeded, infecting the males of the Justice League and leaving Wonder Woman and Hawkgirl to deal with her.
** Even ''after'' she's told by the Amazon queen that, after the boat she was on was destroyed, the ship's captain found her clinging to the wreckage and [[HeroicSacrifice swam her to the nearest island, then died of a heart attack]]. Sadly, she wasn't told this...the queen didn't feel it was important. Of course, she only seems affected by the revelation for a second or two.

* In ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'', Sachiko's dislike of men stems from snotty society men and a mutually uninterested early fiancé. This is played up to the comedic point she can't even be ''around'' overly masculine men without being distressed.
** In the anime, it is said to be the result of both her grandfather and her father keeping mistresses.
** One of the [[{{omake}} DVD extras]] makes fun of this, when the neighboring boys' school is allowed to do a version of the show's opening credits until Sachiko arrives in a conniption fit and the girls scramble to change the scenery.
