* Princess Trini in ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', thanks to the general paucity of men, is only likely to see one in a marriage-related setting, aside from her cousin Cullen. Her previous husband abused her, and she flatly refuses to consider marrying again, even though her sisters [[WedlockBlock need her permission to marry]]. It doesn't help that different sisters had been desperately in love with that previous, [[HotGuysAreBastards attractive]] husband, and initially Jerin looks like a repeat of this.

This rather vague phrase can lead to tricky interpretation that's sometimes actively milked by writers, usually of romance fiction. Usually the assumption is that the character doesn't like machismo, or she has bad luck with men in her life, like her father, other relatives, or {{Love Interest}}s. That is, dislike of traits associated with men or of a particular man or men in her life manifest into a dislike of men as a whole. This can pose a problem for any male lead trying to woo her. As with all dislike tropes, the degree to which a particular character Does Not Like Men can and does vary, from simple discomfort around men to bitter disdain to active malicious hatred.

She has quite the FreudianExcuse, though: [[spoiler:she was horribly mistreated and possibly raped by her half-brother Louis, and everyone else treats her like a psychopathic monster, so it's no wonder she thinks way she does]].

** 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.

* Aoi Tokujira from ''Manga/OokamiShounenwaKyoumoUsooKasaneru''
* ''Manga/SquibFeelingBlue'' has Minori, who used to be super shy around boys, to the point of being afraid of them. Falling in love with Takato, though, made her change a lot.
* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'':
** In the manga version of ''Manga/SailorMoon'', Rei Hino is usually completely uninterested in romance and men in general, a lot of it coming from unresolved resentment [[DisappearedDad of her emotionally distant politician father]] since he [[spoiler:abandoned Rei's IllGirl of a MissingMom in a clinic during Mrs. Hino's last days]], as well as her unrequited love for her father's assistant Kaidou [[spoiler: who married another woman, despite her love for him, and decided to go into politics despite stating he disliked it for all the problems it caused for Rei's family]]. Late in the manga, when the villains torment her with this fact (by then, she'd mellowed out in regards to her opinions on men and actually resents that she can't get close to one), Rei remembers that in her past life she had actually made an [[CelibateHero oath of chastity]] to Princess Serenity and is able to fully accept this part of herself.
** Amusingly, nearly every ''other'' adaptation of the story ignores that convoluted explanation as part of the adaptation, especially the famous [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]] series where Rei is explicitly fond of flashy boys. None of this ever changes her ''apparent'' dislike though, so there are actually ''more'' jokes at her expense about 'not liking men.'
** The live action version, ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon'' is much the same as the manga version though Kaidou isn't mentioned. A small reference to the side story he features in (Casablanca Memories) appears though in the form of a gift from Rei's father to her. (Casablanca lillies and a white dress)
** One rather comic one-shot for ''Manga/SailorMoon'' had the various girls in town being brainwashed by a Sailor Moon impersonator to completely abandon men. Chibi Moon argues on behalf of the male gender and discovers that the impersonator is actually a girl named Shojuki who had been banished from her lover Kengyu, only able to see him once a year. She became certain that he was deliberately flooding a river that keeps them apart so that they can't have their annual meetings because he's cheating on her (this is mostly told to her by two witches who are using her for an energy-draining scheme). Shojuki's fears are put to rest when Kengyu shows up and assures her that he still loves her. As one can imagine, this story was inspired by the ''UsefulNotes/{{Tanabata}}''.
** It is even mentioned in the anime that Haruka doesn't like men. Michiru teasingly clarifies that she doesn't like men who are popular with girls.
* ''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.
** [[HugeSchoolgirl Kanako]] is also the same way. If anything, her fear of men is even worse than Sachiko's.
* At the very beginning, Akane Tendo from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Being attacked by ''all'' of the boys at school every morning because they think [[BestHerToBedHer they have to defeat you to have a chance to date you]] can do this. After being chosen to marry Ranma:
-->'''Nabiki:''' "Well... you hate boys, don't you?"
-->'''Kasumi:''' "So you're in luck! [[GenderBender He's half girl!]]"
** Though this seems to only apply to boys not men as she's okay with Genma and Tofu.
*** At the beginning, she was [[PrecociousCrush more than okay with Tofu]].
** She's also fairly nice to boys who are nice to her (as Ryoga, Shinnosuke, or any minor character from the manga)
* A more extreme version is Asuka Mizunokoji from ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'', who has a phobia of men based on the fact that she was kept isolated from men until she turned 16 to keep her pure. As luck would have it, her handmaids explained the concept of males very badly, and the first one she ever encountered was [[CasanovaWannabe major-league pervert]] Ataru Moroboshi. Go figure.
* Hiro from ''Manga/WaGaNaWaUmishi'' is a rather unconvincing example. It comes out later that she hates men due to her abusive father, but prior to that revelation she's been getting along extremely well with the other guys on her team. I guess it should be qualified that she hates 'some' men.
* Hinako Aikawa, the lead female character in the manga ''Manga/BitterVirgin'', is unsettled by being around men and flinches if one happens to touch her -- she is (at first) ''totally'' repelled by men, due to the ''huge'' trauma [[spoiler:of having been constantly [[RapeAsDrama raped by her stepfather]] and impregnated ''twice'', even giving birth once and having to give the child in adoption, all before high school.]] Ouch. (And guess who the lead guy, Suwa Daisuke, has to fall for?)

to:

* Aoi Tokujira from ''Manga/OokamiShounenwaKyoumoUsooKasaneru''
* ''Manga/SquibFeelingBlue'' has Minori, who used to be super shy around boys, to the point
Kureha of being afraid of them. Falling in love with Takato, though, made ''Manga/AfterSchoolNightmare'' REALLY does not like men. This affects her change a lot.
* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'':
** In the manga version of ''Manga/SailorMoon'', Rei Hino is usually completely uninterested in romance and men in general, a lot of it coming from unresolved resentment [[DisappearedDad of her emotionally distant politician father]] since he [[spoiler:abandoned Rei's IllGirl of a MissingMom in a clinic during Mrs. Hino's last days]],
dream state as well as her unrequited love for her father's assistant Kaidou she [[spoiler: who married another woman, despite her love for him, and decided to go into politics despite stating he disliked it for all the problems it caused for Rei's family]]. Late in the manga, when the villains torment her with this fact (by then, she'd mellowed out in regards to her opinions on men and actually resents that she can't get close to one), Rei remembers that in her past life she had actually made an [[CelibateHero oath of chastity]] to Princess Serenity and is able to fully accept this part of herself.
** Amusingly, nearly every ''other'' adaptation of the story ignores that convoluted explanation as part of the adaptation, especially the famous [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]] series where Rei is explicitly fond of flashy boys. None of this ever changes her ''apparent'' dislike though, so there are actually ''more'' jokes at her expense about 'not liking men.'
** The live action version, ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon'' is much the same as the manga version though Kaidou isn't mentioned. A small reference to the side story he features in (Casablanca Memories) appears though in
takes the form of her wearing a gift raincoat and stabbing everyone with umbrellas, since she was brutally raped during a storm when walking home from Rei's school alone. Her mother not picking her up because the father to her. (Casablanca lillies was beating her and a white dress)
** One rather comic one-shot
getting yelled at because Kureha was now 'spoiled goods' didn't help. Her reason for ''Manga/SailorMoon'' had becoming friends with Mashiro in the various girls in town being brainwashed by a Sailor Moon impersonator to completely abandon men. Chibi Moon argues on behalf first place was specifically because of how he was half boy/half girl.]] [[CharacterDevelopment She does eventually get along with some guys]].
** What's screwed up about
the male gender and discovers premise here is that the impersonator main character's hermaphroditism is described as 'lower half female, upper half male,' which since the top halves of children's bodies betray nothing of their sex means he should have been taken for a normal girl until puberty. But he was raised as a boy instead. Bizarre.
*** This is explained in the last volume: [[spoiler: All the characters are really souls waiting to be born. Mashiro
is actually a girl named Shojuki who had been banished from her lover Kengyu, only able to see him once a year. She became certain that he was deliberately flooding a river that keeps them apart so that they can't have their annual meetings because he's cheating on her (this is mostly told to her by two witches who are using her for an energy-draining scheme). Shojuki's fears are put to rest when Kengyu shows up pair of male and assures her that he still loves her. As one can imagine, this story was inspired by the ''UsefulNotes/{{Tanabata}}''.
** It is even mentioned in the anime that Haruka doesn't like men. Michiru teasingly clarifies that she doesn't like men who are popular with girls.
* ''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.
** [[HugeSchoolgirl Kanako]] is also the same way. If anything, her fear of men is even worse than Sachiko's.
* At the very beginning, Akane Tendo from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Being attacked by ''all'' of the boys at school every morning because they think [[BestHerToBedHer they have to defeat you to have a chance to date you]] can do this. After being chosen to marry Ranma:
-->'''Nabiki:''' "Well... you hate boys, don't you?"
-->'''Kasumi:''' "So you're in luck! [[GenderBender He's half girl!]]"
** Though this seems to only apply to boys not men as she's okay with Genma and Tofu.
*** At the beginning, she was [[PrecociousCrush more than okay with Tofu]].
** She's also fairly nice to boys who are nice to her (as Ryoga, Shinnosuke, or any minor character from the manga)

female character in the manga ''Manga/BitterVirgin'', is unsettled by being around men and flinches if one happens twins, competing to touch her -- she is (at first) ''totally'' repelled by men, due to the ''huge'' trauma [[spoiler:of having been constantly [[RapeAsDrama raped by her stepfather]] and impregnated ''twice'', even giving birth once and having to give the child in adoption, all before high school.]] Ouch. (And guess who the lead guy, Suwa Daisuke, has to fall for?)determine which of them will survive birth.]]



* MIX from ''Anime/AquarionEVOL'' considers all men to be nothing but perverts and worthless in battle, because her father abandoned the family for a woman he just met. She gets disgusted whenever the girls around her talk about boys. She eventually mellows out and falls in love with [[LovableSexManiac Andy]].
* Ko Aoki from ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'' spends a big chunk of her character arc distrusting of men (Takagi being the major exception,) due to having to deal with sleazeballs like Nakai or her editor on a regular basis.
* Justified in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' after Casca was [[spoiler: horrifically raped by Griffith, her former leader and idol turned demon lord]], an experience that reduced her mind to that of a small child. She reacted very badly when her lover Guts tried to touch her when they awoke days after the Eclipse.
** [[spoiler:Rape trauma]] does tend to leave one [[HatesBeingTouched averse to being touched in general]], as [[spoiler:Guts himself]] has demonstrated.

(And guess who the lead guy, Suwa Daisuke, has to fall for?)
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** Soi Fon 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.
** Tia Halibel also exemplifies this, although in her case it's justified. The only men she knows well are [[MagnificentBastard Aizen]], [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Gin]], [[KnightTemplar Tousen]], [[AGodAmI Barragan]], [[FourIsDeath Ulquiorra]], [[HeManWomanHater Nnoitra]], [[BloodKnight Grimmjow]], [[{{Narm}} Zommari]], [[MadScientist Szayel Aporro]], [[TooDumbToLive Aaroniero]], and [[DumbMuscle Yammy]]. [[AntiVillain Starrk]] is the only man she gets along with, and he's practically androgynous in personality.
* 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. However, Yuuta is transgender and is [[IncompatibleOrientation not into girls]].
* Played with Yanagin of ''Manga/DailyLivesOfHighSchoolBoys'' while she claims boys are pathetic puddles of mess, she can actually get along well with her male classmates as well as Karasawa, [[spoiler:not to mention that she was one of the kids assembled to fight the "Archdemon" with intent to avenge Karasawa's terrible wound.]]
* Mina Hazuki from ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack '' is a Contractor who can turn anything into a LaserBlade, and her remuneration for that power is to French kiss men, which she really doesn't like because she's a lesbian. She's not really as bad as most examples here since the most she usually does is keep her distance and "wash out the taste" by Frenching her [[TheTeamNormal team's normal person]], Yoko.
* Invoked in ''Manga/TheDayOfRevolution'' after Kei (now [[GenderBender Megumi]]) returns to school to explain why she is now hiding from her former best friends.
* Mayu of ''Manga/ElfenLied'', who has perhaps the most tragic backstory of any non-horned girl in the series, is at one point described by Nana as not being good around guys, for a [[AbusiveParents damned good reason]]. An incident with Nyu climbing into Kouta's bath makes her [[RapeAsBackstory suspicious of him]] for a time, though she seems to catch on that Nyu can't be controlled (in either personality). Ultimately, she is as scared and worried as anyone else when [[spoiler:Kouta is shot during a home invasion by the forces of the BigBad]]. Averted in the anime, where she openly calls Kouta the Papa of Maple House, and it is Yuka who openly despairs of the connection the two seem to have.
* [[{{Badass}} Satellizer]] [[ActionGirl el Bridget]], the protagonist of ''Manga/{{Freezing}}''. Well, [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] a bit. She's NotGoodWithPeople generally, but she has a real dislike for men especially. She has quite the FreudianExcuse, though: [[spoiler:she was horribly mistreated and possibly raped by her half-brother Louis, and everyone else treats her like a psychopathic monster, so it's no wonder she thinks way she does]].



* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Nodoka seems to have a mild case of androphobia (''greatly'' exaggerated in the anime), and an early manga bio states that she "dislikes men". However, this seems to be due to the fact that she's [[ShrinkingViolet extremely shy]] to begin with, and, being a student at an all-girls school, has very limited experience with men. She seems to be getting over it though, thanks to a ''massive'' crush on Negi.

However, this her androphobia does not act up when it comes to the protagonist Shungo Ninomiya.
* Hikaru in ''Manga/HanaTheFoxGirl''
seems to be dislike men. Specifically, she dislikes men who might grab Fu's attention. She's hostile initially towards [[TalkingAnimal Tsugumori]] before dismissing him as a pet. Then going right back to hostile when Fu (annoyed at Hikaru and Hana arguing about which of them is closer to her) goes to Tsugumori.
* Clarissa, Rahzel's best friend in ''Manga/HatenkouYuugi'', doesn't like men ''at all''. Meeting [[HandsomeLech Baroqueheat]] was enough to send her into shock.
* Rias Gremory from ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' is a downplayed example. She gets along fine with males, right up until they show any romantic interest in her whatsoever, at which point she promptly ices over. This is because, as heir apparent to one of the three remaining Great Houses, the only men who've ever been interested in her were only interested in her house and title, not the woman; by the time she grew up into a MsFanservice, she'd been soured on the idea of romance altogether. Issei's [[LovableSexManiac shameless appreciation of her body]] actually helps her open her heart to [[IfItsYouItsOkay him and him alone]].
* 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 the anime version of ''[[Anime/TheIdolmaster THE iDOLM@STER]]'' Yukiho is terrified of ''any'' men, including the Producer.
** Inverted with Makoto who ''wants'' more ''male'' fans.

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.

* Hisui of ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' does not react positively when a male touches her, it's originally explained as her being a germophobe. But in ''reality'' it's because [[spoiler: after seeing her sister reduced to a broken shell after years of sexual abuse, she swears never to let a man touch her until Kohaku returns to normal.]] Naturally, Shiki quickly [[DeusSexMachina becomes an exception]].

[[AntiVillain Starrk]] is the only man she gets along with, and he's practically androgynous in personality.
tears.



* 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).
* Clarissa, Rahzel's best friend in ''Manga/HatenkouYuugi'', doesn't like men ''at all''. Meeting [[HandsomeLech Baroqueheat]] was enough to send her into shock.
* Justified in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' after Casca was [[spoiler: horrifically raped by Griffith, her former leader and idol turned demon lord]], an experience that reduced her mind to that of a small child. She reacted very badly when her lover Guts tried to touch her when they awoke days after the Eclipse.
** [[spoiler:Rape trauma]] does tend to leave one [[HatesBeingTouched averse to being touched in general]], as [[spoiler:Guts himself]] has demonstrated.
* In the anime version of ''[[Anime/TheIdolmaster THE iDOLM@STER]]'' Yukiho is terrified of ''any'' men, including the Producer.
** Inverted with Makoto who ''wants'' more ''male'' fans.
* Played with Yanagin of ''Manga/DailyLivesOfHighSchoolBoys'' while she claims boys are pathetic puddles of mess, she can actually get along well with her male classmates as well as Karasawa, [[spoiler:not to mention that she was one of the kids assembled to fight the "Archdemon" with intent to avenge Karasawa's terrible wound.]]
* Mayu of ''Manga/ElfenLied'', who has perhaps the most tragic backstory of any non-horned girl in the series, is at one point described by Nana as not being good around guys, for a [[AbusiveParents damned good reason]]. An incident with Nyu climbing into Kouta's bath makes her [[RapeAsBackstory suspicious of him]] for a time, though she seems to catch on that Nyu can't be controlled (in either personality). Ultimately, she is as scared and worried as anyone else when [[spoiler:Kouta is shot during a home invasion by the forces of the BigBad]]. Averted in the anime, where she openly calls Kouta the Papa of Maple House, and it is Yuka who openly despairs of the connection the two seem to have.
* ''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]].
** While nowhere near Hancock's level, Violet is a LivingLieDetector who has come to the conclusion that men are all liars.
* Ko Aoki from ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'' spends a big chunk of her character arc distrusting of men (Takagi being the major exception,) due to having to deal with sleazeballs like Nakai or her editor on a regular basis.
* [[{{Badass}} Satellizer]] [[ActionGirl el Bridget]], the protagonist of ''Manga/{{Freezing}}''. Well, [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] a bit. She's NotGoodWithPeople generally, but she has a real dislike for men especially. She has quite the FreudianExcuse, though: [[spoiler:she was horribly mistreated and possibly raped by her half-brother Louis, and everyone else treats her like a psychopathic monster, so it's no wonder she thinks way she does]].

%%* Aoi Tokujira from ''Manga/OokamiShounenwaKyoumoUsooKasaneru''.
* The protagonist At the very beginning, Akane Tendo from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Being attacked by ''all'' of ''Manga/HououGakuenMisoragumi'' is a ButchLesbian who DoesNotLikeMen... Which is bad news since her mom sent her to an All-Boys the boys at school full of {{Bishonen}} every morning because they think [[BestHerToBedHer they have to defeat you to have a chance to date you]] can do this. The only exception was the [[PrecociousCrush Dr. Tofu]]. After being chosen to marry Ranma:
-->'''Nabiki:''' "Well... you hate
boys, don't you?"
-->'''Kasumi:''' "So you're in luck! [[GenderBender He's half girl!]]"
** She's also fairly nice to boys who are nice to her (as Ryoga, Shinnosuke, or any minor character from the manga).
* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'':
** In the manga version of ''Manga/SailorMoon'', Rei Hino is usually completely uninterested in romance and men in general, a lot of it coming from unresolved resentment [[DisappearedDad of her emotionally distant politician father]] since he [[spoiler:abandoned Rei's IllGirl of a MissingMom in a clinic during Mrs. Hino's last days]], as well as her unrequited love for her father's assistant Kaidou [[spoiler: who married another woman, despite her love for him, and decided to go into politics despite stating he disliked it for all the problems it caused for Rei's family]]. Late in the manga, when the villains torment her with this fact (by then, she'd mellowed out in regards to her opinions on men and actually resents that she can't get close to one), Rei remembers that in her past life she had actually made an [[CelibateHero oath of chastity]] to Princess Serenity and is able to fully accept this part of herself.
** Amusingly, nearly every ''other'' adaptation of the story ignores that convoluted explanation as part of the adaptation, especially the famous [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]] series where Rei is explicitly fond of flashy boys. None of this ever changes her ''apparent'' dislike though, so there are actually ''more'' jokes at her expense about 'not liking men.'
** The live action version, ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon'' is much the same as the manga version though Kaidou isn't mentioned. A small reference to the side story he features in (Casablanca Memories) appears though in the form of a gift from Rei's father to her. (Casablanca lillies and a white dress)
** One rather comic one-shot for ''Manga/SailorMoon'' had the various girls in town being brainwashed by a Sailor Moon impersonator to completely abandon men. Chibi Moon argues on behalf of the male gender and discovers that the impersonator is actually a girl named Shojuki who had been banished from her lover Kengyu, only able
to see if him once a year. She became certain that he was deliberately flooding a river that keeps them apart so that they can't have their annual meetings because he's cheating on her (this is mostly told to her by two witches who are using her for an energy-draining scheme). Shojuki's fears are put to rest when Kengyu shows up and assures her that he still loves her. As one can imagine, this story was inspired by the ''UsefulNotes/{{Tanabata}}''.
** It is even mentioned in the anime that Haruka doesn't like men. Michiru teasingly clarifies that
she would become straight (or at least Bisexual).
* Clarissa, Rahzel's best friend in ''Manga/HatenkouYuugi'',
doesn't like men ''at all''. Meeting [[HandsomeLech Baroqueheat]] who are popular with girls.
* 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 enough to send her into shock.
* Justified in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' after Casca
practicing the kanji for "man" and got asked if she was [[spoiler: horrifically raped by Griffith, her former leader and idol turned demon lord]], an experience "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 reduced the school went co-ed, she later [[CharacterDevelopment starts working hard to get over her mind to that fear of a small child. She reacted very badly men]]. Unlike most examples on the page, Kaede's situation is played entirely for laughs, and when Hata asks her lover Guts tried to touch how many men have wronged her when they awoke days after the Eclipse.

her.



* Yui in ''LightNovel/KokoroConnect'' is a subdued version: she gets along alright with her two male friends, but she tends to get extremely defensive if they get too close to her. It comes to light early in the series that she was nearly raped in middle school, and ever since has been afraid of men. Through her experiences in the story, she begins to grow more confident and even begins a relationship, though it's made clear that she hasn't been "cured".
* MIX from ''Anime/AquarionEVOL'' considers all men to be nothing but perverts and worthless in battle, because her father abandoned the family for a woman he just met. She gets disgusted whenever the girls around her talk about boys. She eventually mellows out and falls in love with [[LovableSexManiac Andy]].
* 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. However, Yuuta is transgender and is [[IncompatibleOrientation not into girls]].
* Kashiwa from ''Kyou Kara Yonshimai'' is a {{transsexual}} woman who dislikes men.
* Hikaru in ''Manga/HanaTheFoxGirl'' seems to dislike men. Specifically, she dislikes men who might grab Fu's attention. She's hostile initially towards [[TalkingAnimal Tsugumori]] before dismissing him as a pet. Then going right back to hostile when Fu (annoyed at Hikaru and Hana arguing about which of them is closer to her) goes to Tsugumori.

%%* Usio of ''Manga/ShinshiDoumeiCross''.
* Yui in ''LightNovel/KokoroConnect'' Maka Albarn of ''Manga/SoulEater'' has a very low opinion of men due to watching [[HandsomeLech her father]] [[YourCheatingHeart constantly cheat on her mother]] as a child, causing her to believe that the only thing men care about is a subdued version: sex. While she gets along alright with her two ''does'' have a few male friends, but she tends to get extremely defensive if they get too close to her. It comes to light early only holds one of them in high regard, [[TheLancer Soul]], and is very upset at the series that she was nearly raped in middle school, and ever since thought of him being no different from other men.
* ''Manga/SquibFeelingBlue''
has been Minori, who used to be super shy around boys, to the point of being afraid of men. Through her experiences in the story, she begins to grow more confident and even begins a relationship, though it's made clear that she hasn't been "cured".

Takato, though, made her change a lot.
* Mai Paife from ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai'' hates boys because [[ParentWithNewParamour she dislikes ''LightNovel/TheThirdTheGirlWithTheBlueEye'' openly despises men, which makes her step-father]]. The one exception is Yuuta, who is hate Iks and [[LesYay feel drawn to Honoka]] quite feminine looking and sensitive. However, Yuuta is transgender and is [[IncompatibleOrientation not into girls]].

bit.



* Rias Gremory from ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' is a downplayed example. She gets along fine with males, right up until they show any romantic interest in her whatsoever, at which point she promptly ices over. This is because, as heir apparent to one of the three remaining Great Houses, the only men who've ever been interested in her were only interested in her house and title, not the woman; by the time she grew up into a MsFanservice, she'd been soured on the idea of romance altogether. Issei's [[LovableSexManiac shameless appreciation of her body]] actually helps her open her heart to [[IfItsYouItsOkay him and him alone]].
** According to Rias, Akeno plays this trope straight. [[spoiler:Probably DaddyIssues]].

to:

* Rias Gremory TheMovie version of ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' features Amelia, an ActionGirl who breaks out in hives whenever men touch her.
* Hisui of ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' does not react positively when a male touches her, it's originally explained as her being a germophobe. But in ''reality'' it's because [[spoiler: after seeing her sister reduced to a broken shell after years of sexual abuse, she swears never to let a man touch her until Kohaku returns to normal.]] Naturally, Shiki quickly [[DeusSexMachina becomes an exception]].
* A more extreme version is Asuka Mizunokoji
from ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'', who has a phobia of men based on the fact that she was kept isolated from men until she turned 16 to keep her pure. As luck would have it, her handmaids explained the concept of males very badly, and the first one she ever encountered was [[CasanovaWannabe major-league pervert]] Ataru Moroboshi. Go figure.
* A male example occurs in the manga ''Manga/UsotsukiLily.'' En Shinohara is male, and loves girls, but absolutely hates men. It's to the point that he'll attack his ''own reflection'' out of pure reflex. His coping mechanism for this: [[WholesomeCrossdresser Cross-dressing.]]
* Hiro from ''Manga/WaGaNaWaUmishi''
is a downplayed rather unconvincing example. She gets It comes out later that she hates men due to her abusive father, but prior to that revelation she's been getting along fine extremely well with males, right up until the other guys on her team. I guess it should be qualified that she hates 'some' men.
* Mahiru Inami of ''Manga/{{Working}}'' has a deep-seated fear of men, believing
they show will attack her, though she seems alright around Souta. Except for the fact that she reacts to him like she does any romantic interest in her whatsoever, at which point she promptly ices over. man - with a punch to the face or gut. This is because, as heir apparent eventually revealed to one 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.
* Gender-flipped by Keima of ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows''. He prefers the fictional women in his [[DatingSim galge]] and doesn't even acknowledge the ''existence'' of real girls. Then a [[TheDitz ditzy]] demon of hell recruits him to exorcise spirits... by capturing the hearts
of the three remaining Great Houses, real girls they've hidden inside with his gaming skills. HilarityEnsues.
* Azuma Hazuki of ''VisualNovel/YamiToBoushiToHonNoTabibito'' doesn't seem to like ''anyone'' very much (except Hatsumi, whom she melts into a shivering puddle of yuri around), but it can be inferred she has a particular distaste for men. On the other hand, when
the only men who've ever been interested in her were only interested in her house you interact with are a perverted cockatiel, a dimension-warping madman, a few assorted spies, a demonic ninja, and title, not the woman; by the time she grew up into a MsFanservice, she'd been soured on the idea of romance altogether. Issei's [[LovableSexManiac shameless appreciation of her body]] actually helps her open her heart someone ''trying to [[IfItsYouItsOkay him and him alone]].
