* A New Zealand short film played with this trope. Three men who lost a common friend use this excuse (as well as similar and increasingly sillier ones) to hide that they are crying. In the end, one of the men finally breaks down and runs off sobbing. An uncomfortable silence occurs before the other two convince themselves that it was just his allergies acting up.

* ''SluggyFreelance'': In chapter 62, after hearing about how his actions may have caused TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, Torg runs outside and then claims that a) he had something in his eye, b) he ran off to the bathroom to clean his eye, and c) he couldn't tell that "outside" wasn't "bathroom" because he had something in his eye.

* In ''Disney/TheLionKing 1½'', cinema!Timon says a variation of this after watching the scene where movie!Timon and movie!Pumbaa stare at each other in a TearJerker (perhaps) scene. It was obvious that cinema!Timon was bursting into tears.

Since MenDontCry, they can't very well be seen with OcularGushers or, worse, InelegantBlubbering. So the macho tragic hero will often only shed [[SingleTear a single, sparkling tear]], to accent his pain while making sure he keeps his awesome machismo. Used particularly in fantasy fiction, during a flashback to the tragic past.

* ''Manga/Bleach'' Meta example: in a fair amount of GreyRainOfDepression, TrainingFromHell and CurbStompBattle scenes in both the Manga and especially the anime it's hard to distinguish between sweat, rain and tears. Although from track coming directly from the eyes or for example in Uryuu's case when talking about his grandfather the voice acting tend to imply a mix of sources.
