* Elsa from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' showed signs of this in [[WhatCouldHaveBeen developmental stages]]. In the final product she's averse to people in general (due to fear, not disdain). In "We Know Better", the 22-year old Elsa has no interest in princes while her younger sister Anna is in love with the idea of love:

* Kureha of ''Manga/AfterSchoolNightmare'' REALLY does not like men. This affects her dream state as she [[spoiler: takes the form of her wearing a raincoat and stabbing everyone with umbrellas, since she was brutally raped during a storm when walking home from school alone. Her mother not picking her up because the father was beating her and getting yelled at because Kureha was now 'spoiled goods' didn't help. Her reason for becoming friends with Mashiro in the 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 premise here is that the 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 pair of male and female twins, competing to determine which of them will survive birth.]]

* 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.

** Her song, "I won't say I'm in love" is about her denying she's in love, though the muses try convince her to open her heart again.
** She later averts this trope when she does fall in love with Hercules, though.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', there's a female mage lord who is described as disliking men, though nobody knows why. She rules over an all female town, and if you're playing as a male, it's harder to get her cooperation for the game's main quest. If you're male, [[spoiler:you have to hurl yourself on the ground and beg, or just kill her]]; if you're female, she immediately agrees to help you, makes approving comments about the [[TheChosenOne Nerevarine]] being a woman and gives you some powerful summoning scrolls.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', there's [[EvilSorcerer Telvanni Councilor]] Mistress Dratha. Exactly ''why'' she hates men is never explained, but it is her defining trait nonetheless. Her town of Tel Mora is staffed entirely by female retainers and merchants and completing the main quest as a male Nerevarine requires you to either beg at her feet for her support or kill her. (She'll support a female mage lord who is described as disliking men, though nobody knows why. She rules over an all female town, Nerevarine with no questions asked and if you're playing as a male, it's harder to get her cooperation for the game's main quest. If you're male, [[spoiler:you have to hurl yourself on the ground and beg, or just kill her]]; if you're female, she immediately agrees to help you, makes approving comments about the [[TheChosenOne Nerevarine]] being a woman and even gives you some her several powerful summoning scrolls.)

* Subverted in ''IlivaisX''. Despite having been raped numerous times with her inverted pleasure/pain perception condition, Iriana doesn't actively hate her male teammates, even with having a decently good reason and a sociopathic streak. Rather, she takes the safer and more tame route and simply reroutes her uncontrollable desires towards other women.

* Hippolyta of the WhateleyUniverse. She's a six foot tall AmazonianBeauty who can bench-press over ''eight tons'' (which is a lot in the Whateley scheme of mutants). Her usual reaction to being admired by fellow [[SuperheroSchool high school students]] is to beat the snot out of them. Her backstory makes her attitude a heck of a lot more understandable; it would be pretty hard to go through what she's been through and feel comfortable with guys.

* [[{{Badass}} Satellizer]] [[ActionGirl el Bridget]], the protagonist of ''Manga/{{Freezing}}''. Well, {{downplayed|Trope}} 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]].
