* 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.

** Meanwhile, Hayato ''tries'' to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this trope in some of his supports to make himself seem more mature. However, it's subverted, as he actually does have a SweetTooth.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', the ''very'' RatedMForManly Hoshidan {{ninja}} Saizou swears by the trope itself and seems to even feel somewhat ill whenever he smells something sweet. [[spoiler: Ironically, Saizou can potentially fall in love with Sakura, a Hoshidan princess who ''adores'' sweets... and no matter who he marries, his son Gurei will be completely candy-addicted, as the good Gaius {{expy}} that he is.]]

** ''Herrenschockolade'' (literally Gentelmen's chocolate) is a German type of very dark and bitter chocolate. The term was invented back in the 19th Century when people still thought of chocolate as being only suitable for women and children.

* The main character in the ''{{moe}}'' GenderBender {{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.

* Intentionally invoked in ''{{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.

* Gen from ''{{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.

* Invoked and subverted in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Ichigo Kurosaki, a tough AntiHero... actually [[TrademarkFavoriteFood adores chocolate.]]
** The same applies to the somewhat [[NotSoDifferent Not So Different]] Renji Abarai, even though in his case he loves [[TrademarkFavoriteFood taiyaki]] instead (which is basically a fish shaped pancake filled with sweet bean paste.) and in one of the Light Novels that the author Creator/TiteKubo co-authored in expands this by mentioning in a line that despite his appearance and demeanor he absolutely loves sweets.
** According to the databooks Byakuya is one of the male Bleach characters who plays this straight as he hates sweets and in a way shows his dislike further as the databook also says that spicy food is his favorite.

* Subverted in one of ''Manga/YowamushiPedal'' anime omakes where Naruko and Onoda go to a coffee shop and Onoda is amazed at Naruko having his coffee with no sugar. The latter [[DiscussedTrope mentions this trope]] by bragging that real men have their coffee black. Then Onoda goes to the bathroom and Naruko immediately asks the shop lady for milk, as the coffee is too bitter.
