* 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.

* In the ''WebAnimation/LadyLumpsVSBoyBumps'' video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vx_GT00gEsY Metro City]], [[VideoGame/FinalFight Mike Haggar's]] clothes are burnt off in a car accident, so he makes a [[http://dhim.deviantart.com/art/Real-Men-Wear-Skirts-Of-Fire-195956882 skirt out of the fire]] like any real man would.

* Toyota Racing did a "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYXiwlDBCZc Sponsafy Your Car]]" contest that asked fans to go the Toyota Racing website and design their own paint scheme. In the commercial, a young girl named “Kimmy” designs a pink racecar for NASCAR star Kyle Busch. "Who doesn’t like kittens, bunnies and little baby seals?" [[{{Defictionalization}} Fiction has now become fact]]. He actually drove the pink car from the commercial in the 2010 NASCAR season.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'''s Malfeas; fallen king of the [[AbusivePrecursors Yozi]], font of unending and eternal rage, and lord of the dance. When lesser beings channel Malfeas' powers, they must be used for destructive, ruinous, needlessly brutal, overwhelming, intimidating, terrifying and cruel (and so on) purposes -- and for playing music and dancing. His powers do not work for any other purposes. Ligier, his core aspect, is embarrassed about the fact that Malfeas likes dancing.

Compare LessEmbarrassingTerm, PrincessesPreferPink, EmotionalBruiser, RealMenLoveJesus, AgentPeacock, GayBravado, PurpleIsPowerful (when people think just GracefulLadiesLikePurple), and TomboyWithAGirlyStreak. Liable to overlap with PapaWolf if the 'pink' in question is a loving nature. SilkHidingSteel is this trope's DistaffCounterpart -- a feminine woman who can nevertheless be tough as nails when she needs to be.

** The Emperor's Children are sadistic, evil, merciless, traitorous junkie rapists. They also wear hot pink armour and have a thing for velvet.
** The Dark Eldar are even worse than the Emperor's Children... and they wear a lot of purple and take pride from how classy and cultured they are.

They also steal slaves and inflict misery and ColdBloodedTorture on everyone they see (including each other) just for the hell of it, and they're vicious in a fistfight.

** Subverted by the Emperor's Children. Sadistic, evil, merciless, traitorous junkie rapists, they also wear hot pink armour and have a thing for velvet. Sounds like a villain counterpart to the Blood Angels at first, buy the hot pink is actually part of the metaphor for drug withdrawal -- they constantly crave drug-like highs from abusing their senses, and garish clashing pink-on-black is one of the few things that still works.
