** 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".

* Averted in ''Manga/OnePiece'', where it's no less likely to see a man cry than a woman. A notable example is [[{{Cyborg}} Franky]], who's arguably one of the most manly looking of the main cast, yet is also [[ManlyTears the most prone to bursting into tears]] at a sympathetic story. And don't get started with [[spoiler:the [[AnyoneCanDie Whitebeard]] [[DownerEnding War]]]] arc. ** Zoro however very much plays it straight. He only cries once, and that was when he was soundly beat by the man he set his life goal to defeat. *** Zoro has no particular aversion to crying, whether himself or others, he's just a Stoic.

* Subverted in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' after Goku's second HeroicSacrifice; Gohan and most of the other fighters (who are primarily men) are crying. Justified in that they might also count as ManlyTears, but YMMV.

Justified in that they might also count as ManlyTears, ManlyTears. The only person not shredding tears is Vegeta. **Subverted again with Vegeta. He openly cries once he realizes that he was no matched against Frieza and when he begs Goku to defeat Frieza. He cries again just before sacrificing himself to stop Majin Buu. All three times, these scenes are used to highlight Vegeta's humanity or growing empathy. **PlayedWith with Gohan, who Piccolo constantly reprimands for crying. It isn't because it isn't manly, but YMMV.more because Gohan does it all the time over any little thing before he grows out of it. **Goku yells at Goten and Trunks for crying after learning Vegeta and Gohan were killed by Buu. It's mostly because his time is limited (he has less than a day to teach them the FusionDance) and didn't have time to waste on tears. **Despite being a fairly emotional person, Goku rarely if ever cries. Vegeta and Piccolo are actually seen crying more than him. One of the few precious times he shred tears is when he meets his dead grandpa and it stands out so much that his friends note how rare it was.

* ''TheBridgesOfMadisonCounty'': During the filming, Creator/ClintEastwood had a crying scene, during the filming of which, he would not cry to the camera. He said it was because he had never cried on camera before, and he couldn't just go into an all-out bawl, because he is Creator/ClintEastwood. In the end, he decided that this approach was actually more realistic, and went with it.

* Kazuma from ''Anime/{{s-CRY-ed}}'' claims that crying for his best friend's death is not gonna help at all. Ultimately, he is unable to hold off and cries. Later, Kazuma encourages Ryuho to cry following the sacrifice from a partner who died saving his life if he at least cares about her.
