* The bounty hunter Marks Twickum from ''Literature/UncleTomsCabin'' has a fondness for mint julep and fruit punch over whiskey and brandy, which is listed alongside [[GigglingVillain giggling sadism]] and a scrawny, corvidian appearance. It's treated with the gravity as a character from the 50's who doesn't like milk on his cereal.

** ''Anime/JewelpetHappiness'': Izumi Taira will loudly declare how much he hates sweets when offered some and gulp down incredibly bitter drinks. This is because he's desperate to be seen as manly, being a short and cute-looking boy (especially for his age) with a feminine first name.

** ''Anime/JewelpetHappiness'': Izumi Taira will loudly declare how much he hates sweets when offered some and gulp down incredibly bitter drinks. This is because he's desperate to be seen as manly, being a short and cute-looking boy (especially for his age) with a feminine first name. Unusually, his ostensible dislike of sweets is portrayed as immature instead of the other way around, and his character arc is only complete when he stops denying himself things that he likes independently of whether that makes him seem manly or not.

* The Capturing God Keima Katsuragi in ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' hates sweets in any form, though he tried to overcome it when eating Elsie's cake (for her own sake).
* This is not only used in ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'' but is in fact a major plot point to show Naota's immaturity, by the fact that he hates spicy and sour food. The series starts and ends with Naota saying "I don't like sour stuff." This also extends to Amarao who also loves all things sweet and hates spicy and sour foods, show casing to the audience his immaturity as well. At one point Amarao makes some kind of speech about how sugar gives you energy and it's natural to like sweet things. He's trying to sound deep, like his supposed immaturity is really some big conspiratorial secret, but...well, it's Amarao.
* Hardcore martial artist Saotome Ranma of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' is a subversion of this trope: He personally ''loves'' ice cream, but would not be caught ''dead'' saying he does, much less going to restaurants and ordering it. Fortunately, [[GenderBender he is able to turn into a cute girl when he comes in contact with cold water]]. This "{{curse|dWithAwesome}}" allows him to openly and gleefully order chocolate sundaes with a cherry on top in public; heck, he even uses his cuteness to scam ''free'' ice cream off the young and impressionable clerks!!
-->'''Akane''': If you like ice-cream so much, why don't you go get it as a guy?
-->'''Ranma''': Us guys don't do that! Those are girls' desserts!
* The main character in the ''{{moe}}'' GenderBender {{manga}} ''Manga/MoonlightFromage'' is turned from an {{Eroge}}-loving 15-year-old boy into an adorable 15-year-old girl and transported from modern Japan to an alternate Elizabethan Europe. His caretaker is an absolutely ''moe'' teenage {{Tsundere}} who tends to cook with a ''lot'' of sugar. He initially ''pretends'' to like her sweet-tasting creamy spaghetti, but after spending a month or so as a girl, eventually grows to ''actually'' like it.
* ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'': Hunny tries to stop liking sweets in order to seem more manly, but it doesn't work. In contrast, his brother Yasuchika despises sweets.
* Intentionally invoked in ''Manga/{{Otomen}}'' - Asuka tries to order bitter, salty, and/or sour foods (for example, having his coffee black) in order to appear more manly. He actually does prefer sweets, though, and loves to bake cookies and pastries (although he tries to hide that too). His {{Masquerade}} is so strong that girls in his class naturally assume he wouldn't want to try their cookies. His tomboyish girlfriend Ryo on the other hand likes hot and spicy foods and will gleefully order them though she doesn't hate sweets either.
* Manga/{{Naruto}}'s Sasuke [[AllThereInTheManual hates sweets]], which may be a result of growing up too fast (or trying too hard) after seeing his family murdered before his eyes. This didn't seem to be the case before the massacre. His AloofBigBrother Itachi's hobby is listed in the data books as visiting sweet shops, not to add it says that he loves sweets especially dango. Make of that what you will.
* Gen from ''Manga/{{Kekkaishi}}'' can't stand anything sweet. This makes him a foil to Yoshimori, who aspires to be a prodigious baker and bake a cake castle for Tokine.
* In ''Manga/FruitsBasket'', when Kagura tries to present Kyo with chocolate for Valentine's Day, he makes a big deal of how he's too manly to like sugary food. Shigure then rags on him by saying that the truly manly thing to do would be to suck it up and eat the chocolate rather than break a girl's heart by rejecting her gift.
* ''Very'' averted by [[Manga/AxisPowersHetalia Hetalia's]] Turkey, a very manly-looking BoisterousBruiser who ''adores'' sweets. Considering how Turkish cuisine gives a lot of importance to desserts and all kinds of pastries, it's a JustifiedTrope.
* Subverted in ''Manga/TheSecretAgreement'', where it seems like Kyuusei rejects all sweets because of this and is subtly teasing Yuuichi for being unmanly. It turns out he was being literal about not being able to eat sugar as it actually kills people from their clan, and Yuuichi is only abnormal because he doesn't react to it until later in life.
* Shou of ''Manga/SkipBeat'' dislikes anything that's too sweet, but claims to the public that he'll eat anything. This causes trouble when Mimori makes lunch and includes an eggroll that's too sweet. He tries to discreetly throw away the sweet parts, but his childhood friend Kyouko (who knows he doesn't like sweets but is holding a grudge against him) silently pressures him to eat the whole thing since Mimori worked hard to make it. Unfortunately for Kyouko, this helps Shou figure out who she is.

** Very much [[RealityIsUnrealistic averted]] by men (and women) who participate in endurance sports. They're very dehydrated at the end and most will prefer either whole milk or chocolate milk over a soft drink because, a) whole milk makes most sugar-laden soft drinks taste like a bitter diet drink and b) both whole and chocolate milk are even more packed with calories than most soft drinks while still providing the same amount of water.

* Averted with Rusk in ''VideoGame/RuneFactory3'', who loves any and sweets. His father Blaise is this to a lesser extent, some of his favorite food gifts being ice cream and hot chocolate.
** Discussed in ''VideoGame/RuneFactory4'', in a way. Flan and ice cream are among Vishnal's favorite foods, and he asks the main character if they're childish. Played straight with Dylas, who ''hates'' sweets to the point where he gets offended if the main character gives him a cookie on Valentine's Day.
