In Japanese culture, pink is the traditional colour of ''masculinity'', the opposite of Western Values for pink. The color is often associated with the young samurai who have died at their prime, as a symbolism of the cherry tree.

In Japanese culture, pink is the traditional colour of pimps therefore, when an adult man is wearing that colour, it's often assumed that he has something to do with prostitution, or that he himself is a male prostitute.

* [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/288365/fallout-equestria---the-chrysalis Fallout: Equestria - The Chrysalis]]: Sickle may be a mare, but her pink coat and mane combined with... oh... just about everything else about her just screams this trope.

As late as the 1950's, pink was still considered a "boy colour". Pink was seen as a shade of red, which relates to manly concepts like blood and war. Blue was associated with the Virgin Mary and was seen as a more serene colour reserved for girls (in fact, the traditional colour for wedding dresses used to be ''blue'' before Queen Victoria popularized the white dress; all that remained of that is the line calling for "something blue" [[OldNewBorrowedAndBlue in the rhyme]]).

Early in WWI, the French Army uniform included bright pink trousers (Early WW1 French Army trousers were NEVER, ever, bright pink, but garance red. Check this out http://roadstothegreatwar-ww1.blogspot.fr/2016/03/pantalon-rouge-garance-modele-1887.html. Does it look like "bright pink" to you?) This was changed when the leaders realized it made them easy targets.

* Surprisingly, this trope is OlderThanFeudalism, at least. As punishment for killing somebody, GeniusBruiser [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Hercules]] is forced into slavery to Queen Omphale for a year, who forces him to [[http://namakajiri.net/pics/HerculesOmphaleSpranger.jpg wear women's clothing]] and [[GoGoEnslavement help with the weaving]], while she wears his lion pelt and waves his club around. He doesn't complain too much, because, honestly, who's going to make fun of Hercules for wearing pink?

* WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'s Lie Ren is a [[TheStoic stoic]], badass [[SupernaturalMartialArts martial artist]] who goes to a school for professional demon hunters. His sigil is a pink lotus flower and a lock of his hair is also dyed pink.
** His combat partner, [[CloudcuckooLander Nora]], also counts. She's a gleeful, hyperactive GenkiGirl who is enthusiastic about everything...[[BloodKnight including beating demons to death with her combination gun-hammer]].
--> '''Nora:''' Let's break [[JerkJock his]] legs!

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Thor quite firmly insist that real men do cry and there is no shame in it.
** Loki, meanwhile, is perfectly comfortable [[GenderBender shifting into female form]] to exploit a loophole in the requirement for men and women to be paired off on official entry at an Asgardian function.
