* ''{{VideoGame/Borderlands 2}}'': Subverted by [[LargeHam Mr. Torgue]], who at first glance looks like the sort of BoisterousBruiser TestosteronePoisoning victim who would be all about grilling nearly-rare steaks and little else. While he does [[BaconAddiction have machines that dispense bacon]], Mister Torgue himself appears to live on chocolate chip cookies.

** Most characters in ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonAnimalParade'' like sweets, especially cookies. The manliest men, Dale, Hayden, Calvin, and Owen, either hate cookies or hate pudding. Several are very fond of cocktails though.

* ''Manga/YowamushiPedal'': Subverted in one anime omake 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.

* ''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.

* Averted in ''Literature/TheOutsiders''. The main characters are GreaserDelinquents who thrive on looking "tuff", but Ponyboy and his brothers have a mean SweetTooth. They love chocolate and chocolate cake.

* Completely averted by the ''very'' manly [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Maxima]], who openly mentions his love of sweets and ice-cream. Not to mention, he ''needs'' these sweets to funcion since he triples as a {{Cyborg}}, a {{Technopath}} ''and'' a GeniusSweetTooth -- he must [[GeniusBruiser use his brains]] in a regular basis, and since glucose is the "fuel" for the brains...
* Gaius in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' is basically [[DefiedTrope a big "screw you"]] to this trope. He loves sweets, [[SupremeChef he makes his own sweets]], many of his dialogue pieces mention sweets (even his love confession, in the English version of the game), and not only he's unashamed of it, but he's never seen as unmanly due to this trope. (At most, people are concerned about his health.)
** The crowning example of Gaius' sweet tooth: Chrom manages to get him to join the team... [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments by letting him keep a bag of sweets he was carrying]]!
* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', the ''very'' RatedMForManly Hoshidan {{ninja}} Saizo swears by the trope itself and seems to even feel somewhat ill whenever he smells something sweet. [[spoiler: Ironically, Saizo can potentially fall in love with Sakura, a Hoshidan princess who ''adores'' sweets... and no matter who he marries, his son Asugi will be completely candy-addicted, as the good Gaius {{expy}} that he is.]]

* In VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou, how much a character likes a food affects how well its [[PowerUpFood status effect]] works, with the characters helpfully reacting with a soundbite of their reaction. Beat, TheBigGuy, resident DumbMuscle, and easily the manliest of the playable characters, reacts with outright disgust when the player tries to give him things like crepes and ice cream, while the other boys tend to be fairly ambivalent on them.

** ''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.

** Also, Rinkah plays with this trope a bit; while [[CaptainObvious not a male]], she, like Hayato, tries to hide her SweetTooth to make herself look stronger.

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Hardcore martial artist Ranma Saotome 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!
