* Very similarly to ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'', ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' averts this trope with gusto. At least once per series, ManlyTears are shed by the heroes of the season, usually over the loss of a comrade.

* 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 ever have something worth crying for, their plight will always be nothing compared to that of everyone else, and therefore they are obligated to always play second fiddle to everyone else.

Many modern cultures associate crying (particularly anything beyond the society at large SingleTear) almost exclusively with femininity, portraying men who cry (even in the face of serious trauma) as weak and effeminate. The equivalent for women tends to assume that be anger men have nothing truly worth complaining about or crying for or that, even if they should ever have something worth crying for, their plight will always be nothing compared who respond to that of everyone else, and therefore they trauma with anger are obligated to always play second fiddle to everyone else.[[RatedMforManly manly]], whereas women who get angry are seen as shrewish.

* {{Defied|Trope}} in ''Literature/TheKingkillerChronicle'' by the Adem people, who usually present themselves as TheStoic. Although they consider it childish and uncivilized to emote openly and use SignLanguage to communicate most emotions, they laugh and cry freely, believing them to be too basic and primal to suppress.

* In the ''Series/KamenRiderFourze & [[Series/KamenRiderOOO OOO]]: Movie War Megamax'', Gentarou (the titular Fourze) explicably states that there's only two times a man should cry - losing his wallet and getting dumped. He says this as he's crying because he found out the girl he fell in love with was an alien and may not return those feelings. He gets over himself when he realizes that she never said anything about not feeling the same. [[spoiler:[[KickTheDog When he gets the chance, it's stolen from him]] and he ends up crying in anguish.]] It should be noted that he is the primary source of ManlyTears and Inelegant Blubbering in the show. Ironic, isn't it?

* ''Series/{{Coach}}: Hayden Fox has a hard time getting alone with his son-in-law Stuart, a sensitive artist who weeps often and easily. However, it turns out under the soft exterior, Stuart shows himself to be [[ItsAllAboutMe a self-centered]] JerkAss, which is what [[NiceGuy Fox]] ''really'' can't stand.

* ''Pride and Joy'': A point of contention between protagonist Jimmy (taught by his own father to never "give the bastards the satisfaction") and his teenage son Michael is the latter's lack of embarrassment in showing emotion, especially tears. [[spoiler: Jimmy finally gives in and cries TearsOfJoy when he sees Michael spit in the BigBad's face.]]
