* All over the place in Junot Díaz's ''Literature/TheBriefWondrousLifeOfOscarWao'', seeing as most of the characters are UsefulNotes/{{Dominican|Republic}}. The womanizing narrator Yunior considers virility to be a defining trait of Dominican masculinity and disparages the nerdy, sexless, and unattractive Oscar for not living up to this standard. Ultimately, Díaz gives this trope a proper {{deconstruct|edTrope}}ion. Many men in the novel exploit and abuse women due to their misogynistic "macho" culture, and Yunior's womanizing costs him a relationship with a woman he truly loves.

The LatinLover was originally from UsefulNotes/{{Spain}} or UsefulNotes/{{Italy}}, but has expanded to include UsefulNotes/{{Puerto Rico}}, UsefulNotes/{{Cuba}}, UsefulNotes/{{Brazil}}, and other Central and South American countries. [[UsefulNotes/{{Mexico}} Mexicans]] are usually not considered exotic enough for Americans, but they can also fall under the trope if handsome and smooth-talking enough.

* Subverted with Rodolfo Tonetti in ''Film/TheGayDivorcee'' (1934). Although he makes a living as "the lover" in divorce cases, he's actually a devoted family man whose motto is "Your wife is safe with Tonetti—he prefers spaghetti!"
* One character in the first ''Film/PoliceAcademy'' movie deliberately invoked this trope by using a much thicker "Latino" accent than he actually had in order to score with women.
* Gomez in the Addams Family movies is a subversion, being a {{Fauxreigner}}, as played by Raul Julia.

* Creator/SalmaHayek, whenever she's paired with a white guy. Or a black guy. Or an Asian guy. [[OverlyLongGag Or a...]]
* Similarly, Creator/PenelopeCruz and Creator/PazVega.
* In ''Tin Cup'', a woman asks her friend is she's ever been with a "latin lover." Surprisingly, she's got her eye on Cheech Marin!
* Silent-era actor Rudolph Valentino is considered one of the American [[UrExample Ur Examples]], due to his sex appeal and large number of fangirls. ''Film/TheFourHorsemenOfTheApocalypse'', which made Valentino a star, also started a tango craze in America after the scene in which Valentino's character dances a passionate tango.



* This trope is extended to Portuguese men in ''Film/MagicBeyondWordsTheJKRowlingStory''. J.K. Rowling's ex-husband Jorge Arantes falls squarely into it.
* Enrique, a pool cleaner, in ''Film/LegallyBlonde'', who provides an alibi for a woman accused of murdering her husband as she was with him [[spoiler: subverted in that he was just covering her, he is actually gay.]]
* The Narcoleptic Argentinian in ''Film/MoulinRouge''.
* Franco Bertollini in ''Film/TheGumballRally''.
