* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': Shinji is the one makes all household chores in Misato's apartment while his guardian Misato and his roommate -and secret girlfriend- Asuka do nothing (except praising his cooking skills sometimes). So what happens when Shinji and Asuka decide to mess with Misato's head? Asuka wears an apron, cooks and insists she does all cooking, shopping, keeing the apartment clean and all laundry. Misato is so confused she barely can tell [[FlatWhat "What"]] over and again.

This is a male character who is simply a better domestic than his (usually female) significant other. He is better organized when it comes to homemaking, knows how to cook, clean, and is good with kids. Such a character is often [[MasculineGirlFeminineBoy contrasted with a less-than-feminine female character]], or [[SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan another male character who is a "real man"]], and thus useless around the house.

The usual DoubleStandard applies in that, for the most part, such a character is assumed to be less "manly" than one who doesn't do these things, because (for some reason) [[MenCantKeepHouse men aren't supposed to be good at these sort of things]]. Quite often, a man who is a full-time HouseHusband is seen as somehow a failure or a "bum" for "not working," even by people who have no problem with women being full-time homemakers and who would never even ''hint'' that a woman who stayed home to keep house and take care of the kids didn't have "a job". In addition, a lot of the "support network" of stay-at-home moms is often unavailable to a stay-at-home dad, because being a male makes the HouseHusband an outsider, even if he has the same day-to-day experiences and problems as the stay-at-home mom.

This is a male character who is simply a better serves as the primary domestic than in his family as opposed to his (usually female) significant other. He is better organized when it comes to homemaking, knows how to cook, clean, and is good with kids. This is usually because it is his partner who works to support the family, and due to an unwillingness to have both parents absent, he takes it upon himself to do the "wife's duties." Alternatively, it could be because his partner lacks competence in such duties and he has to fill the role by necessity.

* Pinol, a floor cleaning liquid from Mexico, has some commercials playing this trope, even if the Dad isn't able at first to keep the house clean or doesn't know how to. It's particularly surprising since Mexico has still a conservative opinion about gender roles.

* Haise Sasaki from ''Manga/TokyoGhoul[=:Re=]'' is often compared to a housewife. He treats his subordinates like his own children, handling a variety of domestic duties as well as training them. In particular, he's noted to be an exceptionally skilled chef that enjoys cooking up meals for them. In the 2016 Calendar, he represents "Housewife Rest Day". An omake after [[spoiler: he leaves the team]] features Urie wondering how he managed it all, calling Sasaki a monster for juggling work and domestic duties so well.
