* In the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'' the inhabitants of the all-male CultColony world of Athos are a mild case of this. Their Founding Fathers developed the religious belief that women were the root cause of all male sin. After the invention of UterineReplicator technology they decided to found a colony where even ''images'' of women are forbidden. Although originally intended as a monastery planet, generations of SituationalSexuality has resulted in a society where pretty much EveryoneIsGay. While most Athosians don't actually ''hate'' women, they do fear them because their religious mythology teaches that women have the power to MindControl men and lead them into sin.

The (partial) SpearCounterpart to DoesNotLikeMen, this is when one of a character's major defining traits is their hatred of women. Usually portrayed not just as mere sexism, but [[StrawMisogynist unreasoning hate of women]].

* ''[[Literature/EarthseaTrilogy Tehanu]]'': ''Every'' unsympathetic man is one of these, especially the wizards. A special mention goes to Aspen, who [[spoiler:enslaves the heroine just because she's a woman. That's it. Sure, he makes a slave of Ged too because he killed his master, but... yeah.]] [[Creator/UrsulaKLeguin Le Guin]] even strips previous characterization to use this trope to turn [[spoiler:Cob, the BigBad immortality seeker from the third book]] into one of these. It's worth noting that in Earthsea, women in general and witches in particular are considered suspect. Wizards are celibate because they fear contamination from women, even the sympathetic characters such as Ged.

* Sontarans in ''Series/DoctorWho'' are a hyper-masculine WarriorRace that hates women, which is made ironic by the fact that they're a OneGenderRace where the males reproduce (via their probic vent). A certain fan theory in certain circles, based mostly on some readings of "The Time Warrior", was that Sontarans are actually biologically female. The New Series introduced Strax, a Sontaran whose misogyny is compounded by the fact that he has no understanding of gender at all and frequently misgenders everyone around him. Also, his two best friends are both women. And he can produce 'enormous quantities of lactic fluid'.

* The Wizards of Literature/{{Discworld}} hold gynophobia as a proud tradition because if wizards breed, it can lead to the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt return of Sourcery]]. See, being an eighth son of an eighth son is a guaranteed way to have wizardly powers... and the eighth son of such a wizard is a Sourcerer, a being far more powerful and dangerous than any wizard. Or, as Rincewind describes it:
-->'''Conina:''' What have you wizards got against women, then?
-->'''Rincewind:''' We're not supposed to put anything against women. That's the whole point.
** Which adds an interesting dimension to the throwaway line about Rincewind having experienced orgasms, "Some of them even in the company of other people." Though Rincewind is a failed wizard who "takes to magic as a fish takes to fire", so it's entirely possible he doesn't need to abide by these rules. Hopefully. Otherwise his eight son could become a sourcerer - however the line says "people" not ''"women"''...giving rise to the possibility they were with other men.

** Reuben's mostly a Jerkass in general though. He hates the male lead Rand just as much as he hates Setsuko. He hates everyone in the world except Edel his leader who he adores, and Shuran who's apprantly the only person in the world he's willing to hang out with.

* While not outright hating women, Guy Cecil from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' is absolutely terrified of them. This is at first played for laughs, but then it's shown to have stemmed from a highly traumatic incident in his past... after which it's played for laughs again. He's shown to be something of a natural charmer, and one skit shows that he's attracted to women.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'':
** [[spoiler:Tohru Adachi]] shows some degree of this when he's revealed as the killer. Openly referring to women as [[MemeticMutation "Bitches and Whores"]] (okay, [[BeamMeUpScotty he doesn't actually say that exactly]], but you get the idea), his murders of Mayumi Yamano and Saki Konishi were motivated by a mix of [[StalkerWithACrush lust]] and pure misogyny (with a bit of ForTheEvulz).
** Earlier, [[CampGay Shadow Kanji]] presents himself this way, ranting on how women in general are very scary and he prefers men overall. This is actually more complex as it is actually a {{Deconstruction}} of Kanji's [[RealMenWearPink rather feminine hobbies]].
** Daisuke Nagase feels really bad for a middle school break-up with his first girlfriend that he fears failing at doing his very best in either at soccer or getting a girlfriend. With that in mind, Kou Ichijou and the protagonist try to set him up with blind dates, but Daisuke gets irritated by this. At the end of his Social Link, Daisuke finds the strength to move on by speaking to the same girlfriend that left him behind.
* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' has two [[DarkAndTroubledPast rather tragic cases]]:
** [[spoiler: Arvis of Velthomer]] of ''[[FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' has serious issues with the female gender. This is less about outright hatred and more as a consequence of his terrible childhood. [[spoiler:His much-hated father, Duke Victor of Velthomer, was a {{Jerkass}} who drove Arvis's beloved and idealized mother Cigyun into despair with his [[TheCasanova womanizing]] ways. When Victor raped Cigyun's favorite handmaiden and kicked her out of the court when she got pregnant (which would lead [[HeroicBastard to his half-brother Azel's birth]]), the distraught Cigyun had an affair with Prince Kurth of Grannvale. When Victor found out about ''that'', he killed himself, and Cigyun left Velthomer, never to return]]. This drove the ''very'' young Arvis to kick almost all the women out of the Velthomer court (save for Alvis' mother) and to distance himself from all females for many years...except for three: his surrogate mother (Cigyun's aforementioned handmaiden/Azel's mother), his right hand woman Aida ([[spoiler:and mother of Saias, ''his'' HeroicBastard son]]), and the girl he would marry - [[spoiler:Deirdre, who he only later finds out is Cigyun and Kurth's daughter, [[BrotherSisterIncest his half-sister]], ''and'' already married to [[TragicHero Lord Sigurd]].]] [[MindScrew It's very, VERY complicated]].
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' subverts this with Lon'qu. He seems to be this at first, but when the subject is properly brought up he states that he does NOT hate the female gender as a whole, or even a single actual woman. The issue actually comes from him [[spoiler: being [[CartwrightCurse scared of *hurting* women or bringing disgrace to them]], since his OnlyFriend and probable FirstLove Ke'ri was ''murdered by bandits [[HeroicSacrifice when she was trying to protect him]]'']]; this [[DarkAndTroubledPast life-changing event]] left him '''severely''' traumatised and almost completely unable to properly interact with any woman. He gets better in some of his supports, [[spoiler: is a rather decent dad to any daughter he has]], and he even notes that [[OlderThanTheyLook Nowi]] does not trigger his usual reaction, but never fully recovers.
* James Tobin is implied to be at least this in the game ''VideoGame/InThe1stDegree''. He had a divorce from his wife Helen, which apparently caused him to go on a downward spiral. He sleeps around, and was at least physically abusive towards his girlfriend Ruby. If you play the game right, you can ask him about the phone conversation he had with Zack. When Granger brings up the fact that Yvonne says that she witnessed a fight between him and her husband Zack, he'll end up claiming "She's lying! The ''bitch'' is lying!" Later on, Granger brings up Ruby, "the woman Tobin loved", at which point Tobin growls under his breath "That lying whore!" It becomes pretty clear that Tobin does not seem to like women very much.
* Kotaro Fuuma of ''VideoGame/{{Onimusha}} 2: Samurai's Destiny'' has a deep distrust and dislike of women, and is openly hostile to Oyu, mainly for being a woman. It is later [[FreudianExcuse revealed that his dislike stems from his belief]] [[MissingMom that his mother]] [[ParentalAbandonment abandoned him]]. [[spoiler:Depending on Kotaro's friendship values with Jubei, Kotaro will end up [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice mortally wounded]], and as he dies he finally realises that his mother never abandoned him - she actually died protecting him.]] It is also worth noting that Kotaro is portrayed a lot more sympathetically than many other characters who qualify for this trope.
* Falco Lombardi, of ''Franchiase/StarFox '' fame, is revealed to be this in the ''Farewell, Beloved Falco'' comic [[NoExportForYou released only in Japan.]] In it, he explains to Katt, his StalkerWithACrush, that he isn't - and never will be - interested in settling down with a woman. The comic and the games never really explore the plot thread and the reasoning behind it (though common fan theories have him as gay, asexual, or simply too engrossed in the adventurous life of a pilot to bother with romance), but it is given a subtle nod in ''VideoGame/StarFoxCommand'' when Falco is the only character not to have a child in any of the endings.

* Issei Ryudou of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', who appears to be highly dismissive or flustered concerning women in general and considers the school idol Rin Tohsaka to be his arch-enemy, and also the spawn of the devil. [[BitchInSheepsClothing He's not]] ''[[BitchInSheepsClothing that]]'' [[BitchInSheepsClothing far off]] about that, all things considered. On the other hand, he thinks Saber is practically angelic.
** This leads to a [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]] encounter with [[FilleFatale Ilya]] in ''Fate/hollow ataraxia''.

angelic. This leads to a [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]] encounter with [[FilleFatale Ilya]] in ''Fate/hollow ataraxia''.



* While not outright hating women, Guy Cecil from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' is absolutely terrified of them. This is at first played for laughs, but then it's shown to have stemmed from a highly traumatic incident in his past... after which it's played for laughs again.
** He's shown to be something of a natural charmer, and one skit shows that he's attracted to women.
* [[spoiler:Tohru Adachi]] of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' shows some degree of this when he's revealed as the killer. Openly referring to women as [[MemeticMutation "Bitches and Whores"]] (okay, [[BeamMeUpScotty he doesn't actually say that exactly]], but you get the idea), his murders of Mayumi Yamano and Saki Konishi were motivated by a mix of [[StalkerWithACrush lust]] and pure misogyny (with a bit of ForTheEvulz).
** Earlier, [[CampGay Shadow Kanji]] presented himself this way, ranting on how women in general are very scary and he prefers men overall. This is actually more complex as it was actually a {{Deconstruction}} of Kanji's [[RealMenWearPink rather feminine hobbies]].
** Daisuke Nagase. Daisuke feels really bad for a middle school break-up with his first girlfriend that he fears failing at doing his very best in either at soccer or getting a girlfriend. With that in mind, Kou Ichijou and the protagonist try to set him up with blind dates, but Daisuke gets irritated by this. At the end of his Social Link, Daisuke finds the strength to move on by speaking to the same girlfriend that left him behind.
* Franchise/FireEmblem has two [[DarkAndTroubledPast rather tragic cases]]:
** [[spoiler: Arvis of Velthomer]] of ''[[FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' has serious issues with the female gender. This is less about outright hatred and more as a consequence of his terrible childhood. [[spoiler:His much-hated father, Duke Victor of Velthomer, was a {{Jerkass}} who drove Arvis's beloved and idealized mother Cigyun into despair with his [[TheCasanova womanizing]] ways. When Victor raped Cigyun's favorite handmaiden and kicked her out of the court when she got pregnant (which would lead [[HeroicBastard to his half-brother Azel's birth]]), the distraught Cigyun had an affair with Prince Kurth of Grannvale. When Victor found out about ''that'', he killed himself, and Cigyun left Velthomer, never to return]]. This drove the ''very'' young Arvis to kick almost all the women out of the Velthomer court (save for Alvis' mother) and to distance himself from all females for many years...except for three: his surrogate mother (Cigyun's aforementioned handmaiden/Azel's mother), his right hand woman Aida ([[spoiler:and mother of Saias, ''his'' HeroicBastard son]]), and the girl he would marry - [[spoiler:Deirdre, who he only later finds out is Cigyun and Kurth's daughter, [[BrotherSisterIncest his half-sister]], ''and'' already married to [[TragicHero Lord Sigurd]].]] [[MindScrew It's very, VERY complicated]].

* The blog ''Blog/WeHuntedTheMammoth'' is all about finding these people and mocking them.



* ''Website/MenAreBetterThanWomen'': Another tongue-in-cheek humor site, although Dick Masterson never breaks character whereas Maddox occasionally does.
** Depending on whom you ask, it's considered SeriousBusiness by others.
* Gordon Bennet from ''WebOriginal/TheWarComms'' ''is'' this trope. His [[StalkerWithACrush admirer]] Patrick Wells is a lighter version, falling more into GirlsHaveCooties due to his immaturity.

* ''Plane Daffy'', a WartimeCartoon in the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' series had Daffy Duck as a woman-hating messenger bird being used to get a secret past a spy who had been seducing messengers.
-->I'll do the job, I'm a woman hater!
-->She won't get to first base, this Hatta Mari tomater!
* Murderface from ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' is labeled as a "classic woman hater" by the band and calls women "soul murderers", and he's only ever nice to them when he wants them to sleep with him, which almost always backfires.
** Maybe there's a little bit of FridgeBrilliance there if his advances are always rejected.
** In at least one other episode he tries to portray himself as a protector of women from unwanted harassment. His bandmates call him out on white knighting his way into their pants and remind him that they KNOW he is a misogynist despite his attempts to demonstrate otherwise (they are in fact correct).
* Cotton Hill on ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' enjoys aspects of women (specifically, them cooking for him, cleaning for him, and having sex with him), but anything other than that any woman he meets annoys him and he generally acts with hostility to women he meets (especially Peggy).
** His major PetTheDog moment is when he helps her regain her ability to walk and take care of herself after her skydiving accident, by becoming her personal DrillSergeantNasty.
*** He also helps her get her job back when she was fired for spanking a student, though it was more from his belief in spanking.
** The only woman he truly loved was a Japanese nurse named Mihiko. He developed a relationship with her after the end of World War II and since soldiers were not allowed to have relationships with the locals they hid their love, and he was sad when his fleet took off and tried to delay them as long as possible. Years later they reconciled and he apologized for his actions but he unknowingly fathered a son with her named Junichiro and it took quite a bit of his trust to accept him as a father.
