* The second ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' pilot ends with the titular character getting stranded on an entire island of them. Needless to say, after trying to score with an entire tribe of Amazon women, this was most certainly NOT what he was hoping for.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': "Homer's Phobia"' featured a number of this type at a steel mill. Homer had thought that seeing American Joe's hard at work would "cure" Bart of his (believed) homosexuality. It didn't. [[WorkHardPlayHard "We work hard -- we]] ''[[WorkHardPlayHard play]]'' [[WorkHardPlayHard hard!"]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Phantom of the Paradise}}'' features Beef, a barrel-chested, lisping, makeup-wearing, Music/{{Meat Loaf}}-adjacent glam rocker. Beef is the rare blend of this trope and Trope/{{Camp Gay}}, with an added dash of [[spoiler: Trope/{{Bury Your Gays}}.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/JohnBarrowman ''loves'' to invoke this trope. Being a LargeHam doesn't hurt either.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls'', Kurokuma sarcastically asks Nagito if he's this in the Japanese version, referencing the chained SlaveCollar he wears.

* ''BreathOfFire'' often tend to feature battles with muscly, oily men in speedos... often with [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere absolutely no explanation whatsoever]].
* An enemy type in {{Elona}}. Despite the name, the Macho Camper has the appearance of a punk or gang member (also enemy types), and [[SuicideAttack explodes on contact]] as their primary and ''only'' method of attack, making them almost no different from the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Kamikaze]] [[TakingYouWithMe Samurai]].

See also CampGay. Contrast with StraightGay. If a muscular-looking character is gay, but not a stereotype, then he's ManlyGay. If you're looking for ''works'' that are both campy and macho, see TestosteronePoisoning.

This stereotype is somewhat more common in East Asian cultures (where it has become the default gay stereotype, as [[{{Bishonen}} fashion-conscious pretty boys]] are more associated with heterosexuals there) than in the US, but is still seen in Western media (RicFlair being a well-know example). Almost always PlayedForLaughs, such characters are often introduced to be PluckyComicRelief, or [[DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale to hit on the straight guy who can do little to stop it]]. In Japan, the stereotype has been named "Hard Gay".

[[folder:Machinima]]
* Montrose from ''Machinima/LeetWorld'' is this ''and'' CampGay, with his character model being with bared, muscled arms and a bandana, being called the best shot on the Terrorist team aside from Cortez by Cortez, and having an unforgettable comeback line -- but he has said something which really make you say "gay." And was the character most pre-concerned with cleaning up the house.

* Vineswole, one of ''{{Vinesauce}}'''s mascots, seems to embody this trope.

** Trunks himself does his best to skirt this trope, what with being a musclebound ''Dragon Ball Z'' character, his extreme attachment to his [[HoYay "best friend"]] Goten and his seeming indifference to girls.

* In the AlternateHistory story ''Literature/MaleRising'', [[spoiler:UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt]] is this as a result of the butterfly effect. One reader noted that it gives a whole new meaning to the term [[spoiler:"Bull Moose"]]. Still no less {{badass}}, though he becomes a noted pacifist instead of a war hawk, and he directs his energies (not ''those'' kinds!) into journalism instead of the military [[spoiler:and the Presidency]].
