* Riser Phenex in ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD''. A rather successful case, who openly admits his Peerage is a checklist of harem member stereotypes and is quite happy to molest them in public to make someone jealous. After Issei kicks his ass at an EngagementChallenge, he loses nearly all his prestige and nearly all his allure with it, and [[VillainousBreakdown doesn't cope exceptionally well]].

Riser Phenex in ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD''. A is (initially) a rather successful case, who openly admits his Peerage is a checklist of harem member stereotypes and is quite happy to molest them in public to make someone jealous. After Issei kicks his ass at an EngagementChallenge, he loses nearly all his prestige and nearly all his allure with it, and [[VillainousBreakdown doesn't cope exceptionally well]].

** An interesting example is Issei himself. An open HaremSeeker and [[LovableSexManiac unabashed pervert]], he at first sees Riser as something to strive for. Then the above public groping happens, in the context of Riser targeting a girl Issei likes, and Issei shocks himself with how revolted he is. This kick-starts his subtle development to a ChivalrousPervert plenty of girls willingly throw themselves at, to Riser's immense frustration [[BrickJoke when he shows up again volumes later]].

* Robert is more or less portrayed this way in the musical ''{{Company}}'', as he juggles three girlfriends, enjoying a little of each but without showing signs that he really loves any one person (which "Being Alive" suggests is his deep dark desire). He's just good friends with a bunch of married women and their husbands, who envy his hedonistic bachelorhood.

* ''Theatre/DonGiovanni'' is a mixture of this and TheCasanova. He actually does (reportedly) get lots of women to sleep with him, but he's a total {{Jerkass}} once you get to know him.

* In ''VisualNovel/War13thDay'', Night is an open flirt, who isn't above giving [[ForcefulKiss forceful kisses]]. He's so dashing and debonair that even the woman he blackmails for her body ends up enjoying it. [[spoiler:Of course, given the UnreliableNarrator, this interpretation of her reaction and his character might be false.]]



* Sven Bianchi from ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' is known for his ability to (figuratively) charm the pants off practically any girl he encounters. He prefers blondes. Sven recently (after being threatened by Faye) is trying to move past his man-whoring days, but can't even tell when he is being sincere any more. Especially now he's sharing his bed with the same Faye on a regular basis. Late he isn't a whore anymore. Other girls seem "flat" compared to Fay. Poor fellow Fay broke him.

* Cross Marian of ''Manga/DGrayMan''. He likes women in general, and even comments only women interest him. He's got quite a few lovers. It's assumed majority of Cross' lovers are prostitutes, since his hobby is visiting brothels. When they get with him, they are apparently crazy about him, since it's hinted he's a caring man, as he drops the Jerkass Facade when he's alone with women, and they take care of him, as we hear from Allen, and see with Anita. However, his open women-loving tends to be a turnoff for some higher principled women. Klaud, a higher principle women shows no interest in his advances at all. He flirts with Lenalee, a young girl but, she's indifferent to him in general, and openly tells him his sweet talk won't get him anywhere with her. So, he's not a bad man, and does care about his lovers once he finally gets with them. Some don't get past his heavy flirting to see that and give him a chance, as it seems to be the case with Klaud.

-->'''Mary''': You must know then that I have a sister who is very young, foolish as girls are sometimes, and very very lovely. Her path was crossed, not so long ago, by the Marquis of Vidal.
-->'''Avon''': Naturally
-->'''Mary''': Naturally, sir?
-->'''Avon''': Oh, I think so. If she is very very lovely I feel sure that the Marquis of Vidal would cross her path.

* Alec/X5-494 on ''DarkAngel'', is attractive (he's JensenAckles) and flirty but isn't seen to have much success. Asha is hung up on Logan, Mia is manipulating him to help her boyfriend and bring down a mob boss, and it's a matter of fan interpretation whether he's interested in Max that way. One time we see that he has been dating two of his [[{{Courier}} Jam Pony]] co-workers at the same time, they found out about it and quit.
