Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/OnePunchMan'': The Stoic King never shows any expression at all, except possibly contempt. [[spoiler:As it's a façade he keeps up due to being sent against giant monsters with no combat ability, we see him break down into TearsOfFear when he's alone.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''WebOriginal:DragonBallZAbridged'': World's Strongest has Dr. Wheelo break down crying on seeing how beautiful the world is from orbit and knowing he's still stuck as a giant brain in a jar.

* Yugi, the sixteen-year-old protagonist of ''Manga/YuGiOh'', has a tendency toward TenderTears. Occasionally Anzu tries to stop him from getting weepy by reminding him that "boys don't cry". Somewhat subverted, as the Aesop of the series was that his kind, soft nature is actually a strength, as it is when he manages to save Jonouchi during his possession by the ArcVillain.
** Played straight with his alter-ego, Atem. Atem never cries once in the manga, and in-series is considered the pillar of strength that has inspired CharacterDevelopment in the others. He occasionally cries in the anime, but this is usually a sign that things have gotten really bad.

ArcVillain. Seemingly played straight with his alter-ego, Atem. Atem never cries once in the manga, and in-series is considered the pillar of strength that has inspired CharacterDevelopment in the others. He occasionally cries in the anime, but this is usually a sign that things have gotten really bad. When [[spoiler: Yugi defeats him in the Ceremonial Duel, thus sending Atem to the Afterlife for good, Yugi bursts into tears. Atem tells him 'if I were you, I wouldn't cry!' but this seems to be a statement that Atem believes Yugi should be [[SoProudOfYou proud of his victory]] and not regretful that Atem has to leave them.]]

Although they consider it childish and uncivilized to emote openly and use SignLanguage to communicate most emotions, they laugh and cry freely, believing those emotions to be too basic and primal to suppress.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' inverts this pretty ''hard'', in that the leading adult male of the series is an incredible MoodSwinger. He cries openly in front of family and friends often, and the extremity of the situation wouldn't even matter: anything from losing his mother, to losing a fictional character he liked, to [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking his neck chafing from a shirt's tag that grazed him]] is enough to set him off. And, maybe even more impressive, he's rarely (if ever) called out for it by anybody else.
