[[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."

* 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.

* 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.
