* ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo'': it's about members of a boxing gym who dedicate their lives to the sport. They're filled with so much fighting spirit that the whole series is tranlated as that in some countries.
** Special Mention must go to Mamoru Takamura, who truly is a man among men, to the point that it borders on TestosteronePoisining. The best example of this? He fought a [[BearsAreBadNews bear]] ''and won.'' Even better, the bear gives him some scars on his chest and shoulders that only serve to make him even more manly and seriously intimidate his opponents.

* ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}''. Tons of action and vampires and explosions and everything else that a manly show could want, along with several characters who would put the action stars of the 70s and 80s to shame. Alucard, Anderson, and the Captain are just the most obvious male examples, but the show also features [[ActionGirl Action Girls]] galore.

* ''Film/ApocalypseNow''. Along with ''Film/{{Platoon}}'' and ''Film/FullMetalJacket'', this suffers from DoNotDoThisCoolThing syndrome. Most young men want nothing more than to attack a Vietcong village with helicopters and napalm, and then go upriver in a boat, whilst taking drugs, wearing a flak jacket and machine-gunning enemies. [[spoiler: Ends up being {{Deconstructed}}. Three of the crew are killed, the remaining two are probably scarred for life after their journey, the main character is already suffering from PTSD, the villain is a MightyWhitey who went insane, and that's not even including the hundreds of background characters that we see losing or have lost their fucking minds in the most gruesome parts of the war. And absolutely none of it is portrayed lightly, as we what kind of an effect war [[RealityEnsues really has]] on ordinary men.]]
* [[ColonelBadass Colonel]] [[ColonelKilgore Miles]] Quaritch from ''Film/{{Avatar}}''. The proof: Customized his AMP suit and his [[CoolShip personal gunship]] with dragons, stays beefy by lifting weights and is fond of solving problems with [[MoreDakka heavy ordinance]].

* ''Film/DeathRace''. It's a film about a modern gladiator game where prisoners, all [[BadassDriver badass racers]] with nicknames such as "Frankenstein" and "Machine Gun Joe," compete in a race in which track is littered with all kinds of deadly traps while accompained by hot babes as navigators. Oh, and the first film's protagonist is Creator/JasonStatham, and one of his crew is Creator/IanMcShane. The sequels didn't bring them back, but brought Creator/DannyTrejo and Creator/VingRhames for compensation. ''Can you feel it, dudes?!''

*** The Orks were inspired from Highschool Football hooligans while every other faction had it's roots in real-life armies (one of which is the spartans). They only care about Fighting (shooting and smashing faces), Food and Fast Cars, and their form of promotion is beating the crap out of the boss. They've also managed to fire guns which had no triggers or bullets, made the color red into instant speed potions, and invented space travel using a junk pile.
