* In ''Literature/TheSorcererOfTheWildeeps'', the cultural norm in the northern lands is that men don't show emotions, never mind crying. Demane is appalled at such ignorance, as where he's from everyone is allowed to cry. When [[spoiler:Cumalo, one of his friends in the band, dies]], Demane has to stow away his grief entirely or be looked down upon.

** Let's not forget about "Cryin' Man" Rembrandt Brown, who could do it at will. His biggest hit during his time with the Spinning Tops was called "Cry Like A Man".

** Angle turned it around during a 2001 segment in which he kidnapped Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin and ordered him to cry, threatening to throw him off a bridge if he didn't.

-->C'mon, what's the problem?\\
Quit your crying\\
Be a man!\\
Surely, she couldn't mean ''that'' much?\\
Let me give you my love!\\
Take my soul, my heart and body\\
Yes, I give it all to you\\
And if you still won't accept it, you're gonna regret it

* As mentioned in other sections, Sega enforces this with the titular hero of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog''. It's extremely rare for Sonic to be depicted crying in canon. Whether it's due to his gender or due to it being OutOfCharacter for his character is hard to distinguish.

** There is one notable part in the fifth part where [[spoiler:George]] is killed. His mother naturally breaks down, while his father comforts her. Later, while [[spoiler:Natsuhi]] is hiding in the closet of a different room, the father in question [[spoiler:Hideyoshi]] enters and locks the door. He talks to himself for a few moments... before breaking down in tears and collapsing on the bed.

* {{Defied|Trope}} in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. It's actually suppose to be a code that Ninja do not shed tears on the battlefield. This does not stop Naruto, who very much wears his emotions on his sleeves.

* In one episode of ''Manga/NurseAngelRirikaSOS'' Seiya tells Ririka's younger brother Shou that boys shouldn't cry easily. Shou learns to be more brave and less sensitive. Seiya himself occasionally tears up, especially when [[AfraidOBlood he sees blood]].

* Completely averted in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. The series isn't shy about letting the male characters weep in moments of intense emotion. Not just any men, either: Iroh, one of the most powerful, {{Badass}} characters in the series, is unafraid to weep openly many times, once when mourning his lost son, and again when Zuko apologizes to him in the finale. Zuko himself is not considered unmanly either for crying, and does so ''many'' times without anybody thinking to say he's not supposed to. Aang and Sokka also get their moments, and nobody calls them unmanly for it either. Also averted in the sequel, where Bolin breaks out into full-on InelegantBlubbering when [[spoiler: he sees his crush Korra kissing his brother Mako, just when he was bringing her roses.]]

* Very much averted in medieval Europe. Crying was quite common among men and without social stigmata, with bards even singing about how warriors and knights cried together in fear for their lives befor battle.

* Unfortunately, despite the implications this can bring about, there actually is a social stigma related to men crying in public, or if they are simply caught crying in front of the wrong person, because the society at large tends to assume that men have nothing truly worth complaining about or crying for or that, even if they should have something worth crying for, they are obligated to always play second fiddle to everyone else.
