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]].

* ''Film/{{Stardust}}'' has Captain Shakespeare, hiding inside a TransparentCloset. Granted, in private he's very much a CampGay, but it's undeniable that he's {{Badass}} and a very competent pirate.

* The [[PraetorianGuard Adeptus Custodes]] have become this in ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice''. It's presented as a [[DeconstructedTrope devolution from their previous mannerisms]], since the Emperor would rather they be out crusading and protecting mankind rather than sitting in the palace working out their boredom through muscle-oiling contests.

* Shore Leave of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''.

* Shore Leave of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''.''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', who combines a CampGay attitude with the kind of physique appropriate to his job as a special ops agent. His first appearance with a group of other agents even looks like Music/TheVillagePeople.

[[Real Life]]
* Philippe, Duke of Orleans (1640-1701), younger brother of King UsefulNotes/LouisXIV of France. Openly gay and flamboyant effeminate, he was also a genuine military hero. In his youth he was recognised for his personal courage at the battles of Tournai and Douai, and he also achieved great success as a commander by defeating the Dutch at the Battle of Cassel in 1677.
