** Sanji is a bit of a weird example. He regularly go into OcularGushers for the sake of comedy, but when an actual sad situation occurs (like Usopp's departure and [[spoiler:Merry's funeral]]), and Luffy, Nami, Usopp, Chopper and Franky are crying their hearts out, he will often stand at the sideline and just look all stoic like Zoro. But since Sanji is not TheStoic in general, it may very well be because he plays the trope straight and chooses not to show emotion.

* The man being sung about in Jayn's ObsessionSong "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5KGbxNTDB8 Smoke And Mirrors]]" has a reason to cry as the VillainProtagonist is holding his friend/lover hostage and is threatening to [[MurderTheHypotenuse kill her]]. Still, this trope gets referenced.

** "Bye Bye Butterfree" has the main character shed a single tear though his face is hidden at the time. During sad scenes Ash will frequently, at least try to, hide his eyes with his hat, while the viewer sees the tears hitting the ground. Ash seems to be doing this less since Johto though. He just breaks out in tears, barely even trying to cover it.

-->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

* Used in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' during [[spoiler:Hughes' funeral]] where Colonel Roy Mustang, with his back to the audience and subordinate Riza Hawkeye, comments that it's [[ItAlwaysRainsAtFunerals a terrible day for rain]]. When Hawkeye says that it isn't raining, [[SandInMyEyes he insists that it is]] as he is shown (still from behind) with a tear stream running down his cheek. When she sees this, she agrees. Armstrong cries all the time, but that's played for laughs...usually.

* In "Feliz Cumpleaños, Enrique" on ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'', when Quetzal suggests that Enrique cry to let out his sad feelings, he explains that he's been told some version of this. Quetzal essentially calls it out as bull and Enrique feels better after crying.

** Then there's Eragon himself, who cried no fewer than ''sixteen times'' in the first book. Considering the book is about 500 pages long, that's around ''once every thirty pages''.

**The trope is played with in the books as a whole. Hermione is free to burst into tears as the mood takes her, but the boys are generally described as "wiping their faces" or "drying their eyes" (Dumbledore and Lupin both give Harry time to dry his eyes before continuing a conversation). It's not until the final book that men are described as "sobbing".
