* Kenji from ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'', with his belief in a vast feminist conspiracy that aims to TakeOverTheWorld and that his school (with a 6:4 female/male ratio) will be a prime battleground, probably qualifies. Interestingly, in one route he reveals that he once had a girlfriend ([[spoiler:strongñly implied to be Yuuko the CuteBookworm]]), and clarifies that he doesn't actually hate women; what he hates are feminists. That said, he seems to assume that all women are feminists unless proven otherwise. So far, said women only seem to include his mother, Lilly (who is in the same class as him) and Rin (who he mistakenly assumes is actually a guy due to his poor eyesight).

* 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?"

If the male in question hasn't hit puberty yet, that's GirlsHaveCooties. Compare CelibateHero (considers women a distraction), PoliticallyIncorrectHero (good guy with bad views), EffeminateMisogynisticGuy (usually where the gay examples of this trope fall), FemaleMisogynist (Women who hate women), and StrawMisogynist (Hates women, AndThatsTerrible). [[IThoughtItMeant Not to be confused with]] a (nonexistent) ''Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse'' spinoff about the titular hero being an example of this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Joffrey has shades of this. He genuinely doesn't seem to like ''any'' girls (or anyone, for that matter). He resents his ArrangedMarriage to Sansa in the first season, abuses her and a pair of prostitutes in the second, and when pushed even Cersei, the only woman he seems to have any respect for, is not above his threats and insults. Scarily, the ''only'' time he does seem to show genuine interest in a woman is when Margaery is expressing interest in killing things.
--> '''Joffrey:''' [the Starks] put too much value in their women.

* The Literature/InDeath series: There is one place called Jim's Gym in ''Visions in Death''. Big, burly men go there, and it is no secret that the people there are he-men, and they dislike women intensely. Eve ends up having quite the conversation with the owner Jim. To his credit, he was not happy to hear that one of the man going to his gym is a rapist and a murderer specifically targeting women. So he helps her out saying "[[EvenEvilHasStandards I don't hold with rape.]] [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil Worse than murder, you ask me.]]"
* Colleen [=McCullough=] gives the (real life) Roman renegade Quintus Sertorius this attitude in her ''Literature/MastersOfRome'' series. Sertorius, a brilliant general whose life is soldiering has no time for women except his mother.
* Literature/TrappedOnDraconica: A strange example. He grew up surrounded by female soldiers, idolizes his warrior queen mother and has a great relationship with his sister (who has actually seen more combat then him) but doesn't Princess Daniar seriously and for some reason thinks women care about nothing but shopping and pinning flowers to their dresses. WordOfGod says [[spoiler:this is part of his Jerk Ass Facade because he felt insecure among so many strong women when he himself had never seen combat.]]

** 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.

*** In ''Discworld/MakingMoney'', it is mentioned that many students turn to necromancy because the style is good for picking up women. They're prohibited from marrying, but, hey, ''marriage'' isn't what they're looking for, you know? [[note]]GeniusBonus: this is ''exactly'' how the rules of "celebacy" worked at Cambridge University in the 16th century.[[/note]] It's not ''necromancy''. It's ''[[UnusualEuphemism Post-Mortem Communication]]''.

** Parodied in ''Discworld/MenAtArms'', when old-school guards Vimes and Colon hate the idea of a dwarf and troll in the watch, but not quite as much as they hate having to allow Angua, a w..., with a timely interuption there. Turns out, [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent it's not the "woman" part of her they dislike]].
