* While it's unclear if his song "Cry" is asking a man or a woman to "cry on [his] shoulder", James Blunt himself often looks/sounds like he's genuinely ''this close'' to breaking down sobbing during live performances, especially of the songs [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTbMvm6CPxE "Goodbye My Lover"]], which makes a break-up sound like the singer is a newly bereaved widower, and particularly the anti-war song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PstoHzMPNkI "No Bravery"]]. Note that while James Blunt may not exactly look like the manliest of men, he really is a war veteran, so the latter song was probably written from personal experience.

* A rare [[AvertedTrope aversion]] (i.e. a supposedly macho male character crying because of his own pain / humiliation, not for any legitimately "manly" reason) comes in [[Film/AmericanHistoryX]], when muscle-packed, hardcore White Supremacist Derek cries in the hospital ward after getting [[PrisonRape gang-raped in prison]] so violently he needed stitches.

** This is actually a clear case of InelegantBlubbering and a rare [[AvertedTrope aversion]] of the ManlyTears trope, since Rochester is crying because of personal physical suffering and self-pity, not for any of the "legitimate" reasons listed above. Doesn't mean it's not heart-breaking, though.

** Shining Armor shed [[MemeticMutation liquid]] [[InsistentTerminology pride]] when [[spoiler:Twilight Sparkle was made a princess.]] And 'he always cries at weddings. As his name may hint, he's Captain of the Royal Guard, his purpose in life is protecting others and his whole character is that plus being a [[RealMenWearPink sweet natured]] nerd.
