** ''Series/{{Buffy The Vampire Slayer}}:'' In the episode "Family" [[spoiler:Tara]]'s father reveals that demon blood runs through it on the female side so all female members of the family must stay home to avoid revealing the curse. Though by the end of the episode, everyone discovers that this is just a lie to make sure the women stay subservient.

If you are unsure if a character is a Straw Misogynist, they're usually {{anvilicious}} in execution, and are either painted by the narrative as being wrong or are proven wrong by events or characters in the story. Of course, this rarely changes their mind. Because as we know misogyny is a legitimate viewpoint and how dare people treat it as wrong.

* ''Series/AgentCarter'' has Peggy's coworkers in the SSR, who initially appear to only exist to make Carter look put upon and oppressed. They're subsequently portrayed as being one step, or more, behind her the entire time (though not so far behind her that they can't complicate her investigation). They eventually start learning better that Peggy and women in general can be far more competent than they give them credit for... ''at the worst possible time'', right as they find out that she's been running around behind their backs, making them think she's a deadly enemy agent. When they interrogate her, she tears into them with a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech calling them on their sexism and pointing out how they made it ''easy'' for her to undermine them (even Sousa, who had until now generally seemed to be free of misogyny; he took the betrayal personally and Peggy accuses him of having a MadonnaWhoreComplex). All of them take the speech to heart and have grown out of this trope by the season's end (not that their sexism has been completely eliminated, but what's left is no longer the "straw" kind).
* Pornstache from Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack. Aside from the nominal crumb-duster, he's got a broadly comedic DeepSouth accent, he doesn't shower becasue he thinks his "musk" will attract women, refers to a trans woman as having "cyborg pussy", and regualrly gropes the inmates. [[{{BromanticFoil}} Contrast this]] with his buddy Bennet, who's a [[{{AllAmericanFace}} clean-shaven, ex-millitary romantic lead with near-bodybuilder physique.]]

* William Hamleigh in ''Literature/ThePillarsOfTheEarth'' spends the larger part of the story stalking, beating, and raping various women. It is implied that he cannot maintain an erection unless the woman he is having sex with is scared of him. To a lesser extent Alfred, who blames his wife [[spoiler: Aliena]] for his impotence and forces her to sleep on the floor.

* One episode of ''NewTricks'' featured a misogynistic university professor with gender theory cribbed straight from [[{{Reddit}} r/theredpill]], and who used manosphere jargon such as 'mangina' just so the main characters could say "if [not hating women] makes me a mangina, book me in for a Brazilian".

* Inverted with Straw ''Man-hater'' (''not'' StrawFeminist) Tepet Lisara in ''{{Exalted}}''.
[[/folder]]



* Quoted above, the party member Eldoth from ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'' is a sleazy bard who makes his living seducing women to take advantage of their riches. If the player groups with him and Shar-teel, a vocal man-hater, the two inevitably come to blows. The mismatch in combat strength between Eldoth (a bard) and Shar-teel (a warrior) means that Eldoth is almost always slaughtered in the confrontation, barring luck or the hero's intervention. Whether or not this was intended by the developers isn't known.
