They also subvert it since Germany is a [[AManIsNotAVirgin virgin]] and Austria is sexually experienced.

* In ''Literature/TheFlyingClassroom'', there is the best friends duo, Uli and Mats. Uli ist described to be a small, fair-haired, feminine looking boy, who succeeds in school. He is often targeted by bullies because of his feminine appearance and lack of self-confidence. He avoids verbal and physical conflicts and relies on his friends (especially Mats) to settle them. In return, he lends them money, listens to their problems and helps them in school. Carefree Mats, who is tall and sturdy, wants to become a professional boxer and takes every opportunity to (im-)prove his fighting ability, never refusing a challenge. Also, he gets bad grades in school due to his indifference for anything besides sports and food.

Occasionally these personality traits extend to their looks. The Macho Man will be tall and well-muscled. The Sensitive Guy will be slender. Anime usually gives him a {{bishounen}} look while Western production might go for a more nerdy one. If the characters are attractive, the manly guy will often be a {{Hunk}}, and the sensitive one will often be a PrettyBoy.

** Before Ichigo met Uryuu, Ichigo's oldest male friend is Sado. Sado is a huge, physically powerful man who can shrug off motorcycle collisions and falling steel girders even when powerless.

Ichigo therefore fights to protect Sado, who only ever fights to make sure Ichigo (or any other friend) doesn't get too badly roughed up in battle.

One typically masculine trait both of them share? Although Reid's emotional responses to situations are more visible, more often than not, [[MenDontCry both are loath to talk about their feelings]].
