* BarbarianHero Karsa Orlong from ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' is not a straight example as he doesn't ''hate'' women, but he does believe them to be inferior, and holds them in deep contempt, initially believing that [[DeliberateValuesDissonance rape is totally okay]]. His interactions with [[HotWitch Samar Dev]] and various other women seem to be improving him for the better, although it's hard to tell completely; nonetheless, he delivers a massive PayEvilUntoEvil moment to [[spoiler:Bidithal]] for his paedophilia and abuse of [[spoiler:Felisin Younger]], which ''appalls'' him.

[[DoesNotLikeMen Women who don't like men]] will often be portrayed sympathetically, but members of this trope are usually just written as being bad from the start. Consequently, He-Man Woman Haters are very often (but not always) {{Straw Misogynist}}s, while their {{Distaff Counterpart}}s are much less likely to be {{Straw Feminist}}s.

Interestingly, the ''actual'' Spear Counterpart to DoesNotLikeMen, sympathetic 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]].

* Daena's point of view presents Baelor as this in [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/5320397/chapters/18743981 A Northern Dragoness]]. As he locks her away in her bedchamber and refuses to let her interact with anyone except for two or three persons, she may have a point. Forced isolation did such a number on her that she throws herself at Jonnel Stark - whose father's war heroism entitle to a royal bride - and behs him to take her baby sister with them at Winterfell, as she cannot stand the idea to leave her behind with a madman.

* In a case of DependingOnTheWriter, [[Franchise/ArchieComics Jughead]] used to sometimes make misogynist comments in the earliest comics, but started to mellow into being more respectful towards women as the comic went on, with him getting along with most of the female cast, but generally being romantically disinclined (and, in later comics, explicitly {{asexual}}). He even calls out others on sexist behavior in a few comics.

* Psycho Mantis from ''TheLastDaysOfFoxhound''. The VideoGame incarnation's dislike of human sexuality is {{flanderiz|ation}}ed into describing all women as 'whorebags' and having a ''violent'' reaction to being approached by them -- at one point he would rather fall to his death than let Sniper Wolf pull him to safety.

* Dave from Overlook in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}''. While [[TheFaceless you never actually see him]], he constantly insults town leader Karima for being a woman, and tells her to [[StayInTheKitchen make him a sandwich]]. At the end of the Overlook missions, she has the Vault Hunter fire a cannon at the town to test the shields, without actually putting the shields up. The cannon blast hits Dave's house, and sinks it into a ravine. Karima then puts the shields up and [[BlackComedy politely asks you to try again]].

* ''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]].

*Garland, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasy'''s [[WarmupBoss original]] princess-kidnapper, is portrayed as one of these in his ''VideoGame/MobiusFinalFantasy'' [[ReVision imagining]]. He rants at Wol about how women are traitorous demons and royal women are even worse. Wol merely asks him if he's had a few bad experiences.

* The Wii game based on ''Series/AmericasNextTopModel'', aka. "Bitch Simulator", made both [[WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}} Vinny]] and LetsPlay/ProtonJon state "I hate these women" in their stream and let's play (technically LetsPlay/{{Lucahjin}}'s) respectively. This like most of the others here was both PlayedForLaughs, and with the attitude of the models in the game would it be weird to not get angry at them.
