* Nellie Semphroch, a restaurateur in the ''{{Timeline-191}}'' series by Creator/HarryTurtledove, dislikes and distrusts all men for most of the series. While her backstory lends some sympathy to her mindset (she was forced to work as a prostitute to make ends meet, and it's heavily implied her daughter was born of rape), the books do point out that hating 50% of the world's population is an extreme view. Her opinion softens over time, and she ends up being HappilyMarried to a cobbler who'd employed her as a spy during this [[AlternateHistory timeline's version]] of UsefulNotes/TheGreatWar.

* 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.[[/folder]]

* 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.

* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'': Konoe A. Mercury, more commonly known as Nine and one of the Six Heroes, ultimately despises men due to her neglectful relationship with her father as a child. In the light novel Phase 0, Nine almost kills Ragna and violently beats him for speaking his opinion due to believing that he deceived her sister Celica. It's also noted that Trinity states that she dislikes her real name and prefer her title and her hate her men most likely was the reason she started a relationship with Jubei, a two-tailed cat-man.

Other times it's just used to explain why a character [[ImprobablyFemaleCast isn't ever seen with the opposite sex]]. It's frequent that eventually one character comments on this and takes it as a [[SchoolgirlLesbians sign of sexual orientation]]. In RealLife, this is a form of anti-male bigotry, referred to by some pro-men groups as "misandry" in an attempt to frame it as a problem equal in scope and consequences to misogyny, though to what extent this is true is a matter of some debate. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment And that's all we have to say about that.]]

** Watch WebVideo/{{Obscurus Lupa|Presents}}'s reviews of the show; ''Charmed'' might as well be called ''Man-Hating: The Series''.



** [[DependingOnTheWriter Depending on the myth,]] this is very variable. She was, after all, either very close friends or even in love with Orion, the mighty hunter, though that didn't end well. Also, Artemis was very close with her twin brother, Apollo, and she was also DaddysGirl. (Possibly competing with [[TrulySingleParent Athena for that honor]].)
*** In a certain NSFW fanfic on AO3, Artemis even has sex with a man. Thanks to the Ancient Greek flexible concept of virginity, that even makes sense in the context.
** Actually, most of the time you come across one of these characters in Greek mythology she will either be under Artemis' protection or Aphrodite will help some enterprising young hero [[DefrostingIceQueen teach her otherwise]].
** The Amazons are a [[PlanetOfHats whole race]] of anti-man bigots.
*** Although as with Artemis, there has been the occasional man that got along with at least one of them. One very notable exception was during the Labors of Hercules, when he was ordered to take the belt owned by the Amazon queen. Since the belt had been a gift from Ares, honoring the queen's strong fighting power, it was hoped that she'd sooner kill Hercules than let him take it. Imagine everyone's surprise when the queen just hands it over, because she's heard so much of Hercules's accomplishments and is very impressed by them. The myths vary exactly over what happens next (Hercules and the queen sit to swap stories, the two consider getting married, etc), but it sadly ends with the other Amazons believing that Hercules stole the belt and intended to kidnap the queen, and thus launch an attack to drive Hercules away.

** To put this in a perspective, she started hating men because she found her brothers incredibly immature. When they were kids. And she was around 7.
** To highlight just how ''psychotic'' this hatred is, when Summer was giving birth, she had a phone in her hand. If the baby was a girl, she was going to call Hatsuki and brag. If it was a boy, she was going to call ''an adoption agency.''
** Brought up again later when it's shown that her disdain for her male boss, who's been nothing but kind to her, led her to unknowingly cost herself a promotion as he continuously sent her e-mails which she ignored. E-mail's telling her he was retiring and his position was up for grabs.
** Possibly subverted as of late when her new boss Dr Fuentes refuses to have any sort of discrimination in the hospital now that she's in charge, and demands that Summer deal with her contempt toward men by attending sensitivity training or lose her job.



** Monique is developing shades of it, too, though her approach is less violent than Xanthe's. She's cut Slick out of her life completely, changed her It Girl act into feminist soapboxing that sometimes lapses into outright man-hating, dresses in an androgynous style so as not to be appealing to men, and has completely given up on relationships with men and has instead [[SuddenlySexuality decided to become a lesbian]].

* ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'''s answer to this trope is Melina Frost. Heck, she founds a group with the sole objective of wiping out the male competition on the island. The portrayal isn't at all sympathetic: she comes across as a raging, psychopathic man-hater. Which, well, she is.

* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick is a bitter man-hater. Played for laughs and not treated sympathetically because even though she has issues, she's a hypocrite, she treats the guys in her life like crap and one of the main reasons for it is that she has an unrequited obsession with WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows.

Despite her hatred of men, she soon found a place in her heart (and in her pants) for Timothy O'Neill (the [[HippieTeacher shy, sensitive English teacher]]) and ropes him in a PitbullDatesPuppy relationship that [[spoiler: soon turned into Pitbull ''Marries'' Puppy as of the series finale movie, "Is It College Yet?"]].

* Near the beginning of ''WebComic/{{Avalon}}'', Joe tells Ceilidh that the unashamedly misandric Phoebe "really hates guys." Ceilidh shrugs this off until he follows up that she "[[SchoolgirlLesbians really likes girls]]," which sets off an "[[MistakenForGay is she or isn't she]]" subplot that lasts throughout.
