* Subverted by Ron Swanson in Series/ParksAndRecreation. While he goes on about manliness and scorns romance, he doesn't have any contempt for women, and actually holds strong women in a very high regard. To him, manhood isn't about what a male person should be, but what a ''human'' should be.

* In ''Literature/{{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.

* A lot of GangstaRap. "Housewife" by Dr Dre is a pointed example despite its title. On the other hand, Dre's "Bitches Ain't Shit", despite popularizing the saying "bitches ain't shit but hoes and tricks", was primarily a pointed, extended diss towards Eazy-E and Jerry Heller, with whom Dre was on ''very'' bad terms at the time after the disbanding of Music/{{NWA}} from financial issues.

* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' features General Rumford as the main enemy of the independent-minded, LGBT-friendly Amazons of [[LadyLand Azania]], who launches a war on them specifically because he considers a country ruled by women an abomination that cannot be allowed to exist. Rumford is a hyper-conservative Christian dominionist who constantly throws insults at the Azanians, alternating between raging at the vile unnaturalness of female soldiers and simply dismissing them as silly women, and laughs at the idea that human rights should apply to them (or anyone, really, but ''especially'' women enemies). He ''literally'' has rebellious women burned at the stake, and sells defiant Azanians who will not submit to his conservative ideas into slavery, considering this a good deed that will teach them their proper place in the world. While the author appears to have honestly intended him as a ''sympathetic'' character, and he does have certain KnightTemplar-ish virtues otherwise, his misogyny really is incredibly over the top.

[[DoesNotLikeMen Women who don't like men]] will often be portrayed unsympathetically, but members of this trope are usually written to receive character development.

Interestingly, the ''actual'' Spear Counterpart to DoesNotLikeMen, unsympathetic portrayal and all, ''does'' exist -- a vast number of romance novel heroes are exactly that! However, most of the works that get represented on this wiki are [[MostWritersAreMale designed for a different audience]].

* Downplayed in ''Franchise/FatalFrame V''. Ren Hojo, the male player character of the game, is perfectly fine with women in general but uneasy when interacting with most of them, being oftentimes unable to look them in the eye in said interactions. His assistant, Rui (having lived in his residence for some time) notices that he frequently has nightmares and tends to be [[TalkingInYourSleep talking in his sleep]] while suffering said nightmares, from which she deduces his nightmares may be the reason behind his unease with women, and one of her notes has her wondering: "Are the women he's dreaming about really that frightening?"

* Dodd Gerhardt of ''Series/{{Fargo}}'' is a raging misogynist in addition to being a power-hungry, impulsive psychopath. He beats his wife and daughters and views his mother as being incapable of taking over the family business. He waxes poetic about the greatness of males and the weakness of females to a would-be victim.
-->"Son, you got yourself a woman problem. How I know is they've been plaguing me my whole life. What's the joke? Can't live with them, can't turn them into cat food. Personally, I don't see the value in all that talking and the mood swings and the lack of rational thinking, which, brother, your bitch has got that in spades. See, the male of the species has got the potential for greatness. Look at your kings of old. Napoleon, Kublai Khan, Samson. Giants made of muscle and steel. But these women, even in those Bible movies, you see a Delilah and, uh, Scheherazade. I want to tell you my own private belief here. I think Satan is a woman. Think about it."
