* Most gay characters in ''ComicBook/FromHell''. The book makes mention of the gay fraternity group known as "The Apostles" who occasionally show up in UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper ConspiracyTheory lore, who were well known for their outspoken hatred of women (more than most people in the 1800s, even!). This plays into (and in the Apostles' case may have been an inspiration for) the British stereotype of homosexual men in general, especially in older works, that portrays them being very catty and mean to women, rather than the supportive "sassy gay friend" archetype more often seen in North American works.

* Clair Leonelli from ''Anime/HeatGuyJ'' is a more subtle example of this trope. He's a small, slender, physically-unimposing {{Bishonen}} who also is in charge of the only organization in the series to contain absolutely no women, and he once disparages [[TheHero Daisuke]] for having to be saved by a woman on one occasion. [[note]] Although it seems that that particular remark was sarcasm. [[/note]] On a more metatextual level, there's also the fact that his birthday coincides with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hinamatsuri Hinamatsuri]], a festival associated with women and girls; but at the same time his own mother [[DeathByChildbirth died giving birth to him]].

Such characters will generally be villains (or at least generally more often than {{tomboy}}ish girls who [[DoesNotLikeMen happen to have contempt for males]], perhaps partly because women diverging from gender norms is relatively more embraced), and represent an [[XMeetsY intersection]] of PoliticallyIncorrectVillain and SissyVillain. However, some portrayals may nevertheless be more sympathetic, and make him an intersection of NobleBigot and RealMenWearPink.

* ''Berdella'', a film based on [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Berdella the serial killer]] of the same name, depicts its VillainProtagonist as this. It costs him his bazaar, as the property owner's wife eventually gets fed up with his attitude towards both her and other women.

** ''[[Anime/LupinIIIThePursuitOfHarimaosTreasure The Pursuit of Harimao's Treasure]]'' has [[VillainousCrossdresser Herr]] [[PunnyName Mafroditte]], who was basically a narcissistic gay Nazi. When [[FemmeFatale Fujiko]] touches him, he's [[{{Squick}} visibly repulsed]] by it and tells her not to touch him because he hates women. [[spoiler: Fujiko weaponizes this at the climax by kissing him on the lips, causing him to [[VillainousBreakdown run away screaming in disgust.]]]]

* The VillainProtagonist SerialKiller Light Yagami of ''Manga/DeathNote'' repeatedly expresses his opinions on the [[StayInTheKitchen uselessness of women]], particularly his girlfriend [[MadLove Misa]], who continues to ignore his [[HatesBeingTouched rebuffing of her affections]] and the fact that he's using her to get away with murder. However, Light himself possesses a weirdly effeminate demeanor, with a special mention to the lovely [[SharpDressedMan pink butterfly belt]] he wears in the first opening sequence.

-->'''Light''': He's surprisingly disparaging of the effeminate due to his hatred of women. I don't remind him of his decidedly camp music collection, but [[FreudianExcuse I blame his mother]]. He doesn't trust women. He doesn't trust men, either, [[TheParanoiac or dogs, or cats,]] [[TheLongList or bees, or horses]], but he reserves a particularly spiteful hatred for women and femininity which I find as an equally cruel, unreasonable, and [[EvilIsSexy sexually attractive]] quality in him.

* Chi Fu from ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' would be a milder example; he is a NonActionGuy known for his GirlyScream, yet when told Mulan is a hero he simply says [[DeliberateValuesDissonance "she's a woman, she'll never be worth anything".]]

* Buffalo Bill in both the film and novel of ''Film/SilenceOfTheLambs''. It's carefully established that he ''isn't'' a "true" transsexual, and several gender reassignment centres have turned him away; rather, he's obsessed with his dead mother and suffering from a vicious case of IJustWantToBeYou. On the other hand, he's a large, gruff man who has to "put on" an effeminate guise, which doesn't come at all naturally to him.

* Lionel Trane (a gay, activist teen) from ''UnitedStatesOfTara'' was so misogynistic that he made other, more mature and secure gay characters uncomfortable.
* Jack from ''WillAndGrace'' DID occasionally have elements of this (and HetIsEw), but it varied from episode to episode due to RuleOfFunny.

** In ''Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie'', [[HomoeroticSubtext he became jealous]] when Bison appeared to [[BuxomIsBetter take an interest in Chun Li's "talents]]." And, when tasked with eliminating her, Vega's method was sadistic; delighting in Chun Li's suffering until she fought back and [[BerserkButton stepped on his face]].
** Similarly, in the comics Vega gets '''pissed''' when Ken's fiancée Eliza, normally a NiceGirl, gets upset at him and gives him a hard slap to the face. If not for Ken being there, the poor girl would've been torn to shreds.

* Nekron, the BigBad in ''WesternAnimation/FireAndIce'. When his mother kidnaps a beautiful princess to serve as his concubine, he is disgusted by the idea of mating with her, referring to said princess as a "little slut" and throwing her in a dungeon. He does say that she is attractive for "a lesser beast" and he might take her after all, but this was said to goad her brother into attacking him. In fact, he shows more interest in the ''male hero'' than his girlfriend.
