A character who is Manly Gay is the complete opposite of the {{Camp}} stereotype. Typically such characters are large and strong, and shown doing masculine things like sports and working class jobs. He may have a CarpetOfVirility, he may be a {{Badass}}, or he may have StoutStrength...but regardless of how he got here, the result is the same: While being gay, he's manlier than your average man, straight or StraightGay.

* [[VideoGame/WildArms2 Brad Evans]] is normally [[GentleGiant gentle and soft-spoken]] [[MightyGlacier outside battle]], and ''would'' be StraightGay in his relationship with [[ClosetKey Billy Pilder]], if not for sheer ''appearances''. Extremely muscular and at 7 feet tall, Brad is built like a {{Badass}} tank, [[RatedMForManly oozing testosterone]] in every scene he appears in. With buff shoulders, toned abs and [[WalkingShirtlessScene half his chest always bare]], he's also very much a MrFanservice, particularly in his animated FMV clips.

* ''WebVideo/ThereWillBeBrawl'' does this to [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Captain]] [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Falcon]], who is [[VideoGame/KidIcarus Pit]]'s lover and ''extremely'' {{badass}}. "Maybe later you could come by and... [[{{Catchphrase}} show me your moves]]."

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has [[spoiler: Uhtred]], who flirts with boys and girls alike, is an all-action [[AnAxeToGrind axe wielding]] young warrior and protégé of [[GodOfWar Sif]] from a background which is the Asgardian answer to a Mountain Man or a Marcher Lord who's fancast as {{Creator}}/SeanBean and said to be, when temporarily an adult and a fully fledged Viking God, about two metres tall, with a BadassBeard and built like a bear. That's about as goddamn manly as you're going to get.

* ''AllInTheFamily'': On the program that broke all previous barriers and taboos, one of the earliest came in the Season 1 episode "Judging Books by Covers". Archie is annoyed by one of Mike's outlandish friends (Anthony Geary, long before he played Luke on ''Series/GeneralHospital''), [[CampStraight who acts and dresses effeminitly but was otherwise heterosexual]]; in fact, Archie is so irritated he goes off to Kelsey's Bar its first appearance in the series to vent to his friends about gay people. One of the people involved in the conversation is a middle-aged man, a one-time football player who has normal male interests ... and is a homosexual. No male-on-male affection is shown in the episode, but Archie does learn that outward appearances do not necessarily mean someone is gay or straight.

* {{Superhero}} {{Slash Fic}}s are absolute havens of this trope, usually featuring pairings of two characters reinterpreted as Manly Gay, such as Franchise/{{Batman}} / Nightwing or CaptainAmerica / IronMan.
