** The higher suicide rate in men is probably a related issue- even the fact that men are more likely to ignore symptoms of illness for too long.

** The higher suicide rate in men is probably a related issue- even the fact that men are more likely to ignore symptoms of illness for too long. This is also thought to be the reason why men are more likely to become alcoholics, and women more likely to get depression.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'': Jecht, Tidus' [[AbusiveParents emotionally abusive father]], truly ''did'' love his son, but was merely bad at showing it. At one point, the party can find a [[CaptainsLog sphere]] Jecht left behind in which he tries to give a sentimental message to Tidus, but ultimately gives up:

* In ''Literature/HarryPotter'', Ron's usual display of affection was clapping Harry on the back. In [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince]] he's so thrilled to see Harry he practically assaults him, much to Hermione's chagrin.

Added DiffLines:

* In an episode of ''{{Series/Frasier}}'', the title character expresses his frustration that "we've become a society of huggers." This comes a bit out of left field, as in other episodes he doesn't show the same reluctance to show affection, and has complained about his father's inability to say "I love you" to him. Perhaps it was because the man in this case is a coworker he barely knows.

* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' movies averted this - however, that can be chalked up to ValuesDissonance due to the when the original books were written.

* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' movies averted this - however, that can be chalked up to ValuesDissonance due to the when the original books were written. Though they still toned it down from the books, which to a modern reader looks like HoYay at times.

Added DiffLines:

*** This same episode Deconstructs the concept further... it turns out Brad is actually okay with affection, it's just the presentation that's problematic. The {{Aesop}} in this episode is about showing affection in a way people are comfortable with... for Brad, it involves his father spending time with him, as well as things like play-fighting and catch.

** Tim isn't afraid of showing some affection himself. One episode is driven by the fact that his son Brad is embarrassed by Tim telling him "I love you" in front of his friends.

* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'': Zigzagged in spades. The main male characters, Guts and Griffith, can be described as ambitious, ruthless, {{Jerk Ass}}es, [[MenAreUncultured uncultured]] in the case of Guts, and a monster in the case of Griffith ([[HeWhoFightsMonsters and almost with Guts]]), but one thing for sure is that they're '''not''' afraid to talk about their feelings in very [[WarriorPoet poetic manners]], especially to one another ([[HoYay making certain implications arise]]). In the case of Guts, he can switch from being [[http://www.mangakong.com/manga/Berserk/037.047/210 a gruff jerk]] to being [[http://www.mangakong.com/manga/Berserk/037.047/211 very tender]] [[http://www.mangakong.com/manga/Berserk/037.047/212 and caring]].

* ''ComicBook/SoncTheComic'': WordOfGod is that Sonic has trouble expressing his feelings. Case in point: when Porker Lewis quit the Freedom Fighters, Sonic's anger at him for doing so was in fact because he desperately wanted him to stay, but simply [[EmotionallyTongueTied couldn't spit it out]].

* In ''ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', a large portion of Freddy's ObliviousToLove status stems from his mistaken belief in this trope and like Hank above, was due to his father, Mayor Jones, [[spoiler: though the Mayor is not really Fred's father, he still raised him as such.]] [[CharacterDevelopment He gets over it,]] though his obliviousness continues to shine in other respects.
