** In TheSilverChair, the narrator notes that when Eustace cried for Caspian's death, he was not crying shamelessly like a child, or trying to hide it like an adolescent boy, but had reached a level of manhood that can really mourn someone's death in a mature way.

* In ''[[TheQuestForKarla Smiley's People]]'' by JohnLeCarre, only the police superintendent who is managing Vladimir's murder investigation notices that George Smiley is crying. The superintendent recognizes it for what it is: not exactly grief, more a general weariness and futility.
* In Literature/{{Dune}}, Paul Atreides inadvertently impresses the Fremen when he cries at the funeral of a man he was forced to kill in ritual combat. Bodily fluids being as precious as they are in the desert, "giving water to the dead" is a profound gesture, indeed...

* Mulder cried fairly frequently on ''Series/TheXFiles'', almost as often as Scully cried in Seasons 1-7. Most often it had to do with his missing sister or something bad happening to Scully. The most notable example being when he finally breaks down about his mother's death in Season 7 episode "Closure".

* Referenced in ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnFO5l63BGI "Could you please oblige us with a Bren gun?"]], a comedic WorldWarTwo song by NoelCoward. Colonel Montmorency apparently shed such at the thought of the Home Guard's lack of proper weapons.

* Among the most recognizable UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo photographs is this image of a [[http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Weeping_Parisian_from_NARA_Ww2-81.jpg Frenchman weeping]] as the remaining French army leaves for Africa, about to become the expatriate Free French Forces. He was the first Parisian to be killed by the Nazis, two days before Christmas 1940, because he [[LaResistance had refused to inform]] on the identity of people who had brawled with German soldiers.

* ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' has an episode so memorable that WillSmith has said people just call it "The Crying Episode": when Will's father visits only to [[DaddyDidntShow abandon him yet again]], and Will goes into a rant about how he doesn't need his father and never has... before breaking down and asking "how come he don't want me, man?" while tearfully embracing his Uncle Phil. Further proof that Will Smith is the foremost pretty-crying expert in Hollywood today.

* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' was completely unabashed about having the 3 male protagonists in tears whenever the situation called for it. Exactly how this is displayed depends on the character ([[TheStoic The more emotionally repressed Ulrich]] usually is restricted to a SingleTear while the other 2 cry more apparently) but there is ''never'' shame in displaying sorrow.
