-->'''Voodoo Lady''': The value of the ring on Blood Island comes from its emotional significance. It represents a pure, true love, a power greater than any other.
-->'''Guybrush''': Oh, that's sweet. I... I think I have something in my eye.
-->'''Voodoo Lady''': (points at him in a strict manner) Do not mock the voodoo priestess.

* Luffy gets emotionally affected pretty easily in ''Fanfic/SolInvictus'', more so than in canon. She also doesn't want to admit it when it happens.

* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/IceAge: Dawn of the Dinosaurs''. After [[spoiler:Peaches is born]] Diego is pushing away a tear. When called on it, he first invokes the trope. "No, no, that last dino caught my eye with a claw and..." and then subverts it "Alright, so [[ManlyTears I'm not made of stone]]." Later, Crash and Eddie repeat the trope.

*** This example has a character specific double meaning. Mustang is skilled in [[PlayingWithFire flame alchemy]] but it requires him and his target to be dry, so his powers don't work in the rain. He's not just trying to come up with an excuse for his tears, he's saying he feels useless.
