* Played with in ''FanFic/TotalDramaChris'': One challenge has the campers pretending to be ''other'' campers. [[spoiler:Justin]] is assigned Ezekiel, and takes advantage of this to rattle off a constant litany of sexist remarks, based off the ''[[NeverLiveItDown one]]'' [[NeverLiveItDown sexist comment]] Ezekiel had made in ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland''. (Meanwhile, the [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation Zeke seen here]] is a FishOutOfWater NiceGuy who's mortified at this portrayal.)

* In ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'', Al Bundy is portrayed this way a lot, a chauvinist who only judges women (at least those he doesn't know personally) in terms of how good they look eye-candy-wise; those he ''does'' know personally he doesn't get along with at all, especially Marcie. (Who herself is [[StrawFeminist really no better.]]

(Who herself is [[StrawFeminist really no better.]]]] One good example had him call Creator/JerrySpringer, who was playing a male StrawFeminist (he even called himself "The Masculine Feminist"). The topic at hand was whether women should be allowed to form bowling leagues. Al tells him "If God wanted women to bowl, He would have put their boobs on their backs so we'd have something to watch."

* ''{{Webcomic/Bomango}}'' used one in a [[http://vanheist.deviantart.com/art/The-Morrigan-Induction-288872616 strip]] once. A coach of an all-male rugby team won't let she-beast, Gogo, on the team. Oddly enough, the creator out-right admits it in the strip's description.
--> '''[=VanHeist=]:''' Sexism's rarely this blunt, cartoony, or satisfyingly settled here in the real world, which isn't known for its just desserts. And of course, there are conditions that make it rather reasonable that men and women don't typically play the same field in the world of sports. But pragmatically speaking, if it walks like a man, talks like a man, and gives and [[NighInvulnerability takes hits like a man]], let "the man" play. Here, the silent majority seems to get it.

** [[WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob "Walt Right"]] appears randomly to accuse an old Darna movie of "virtue signaling", presumably, just because it's a female-led superhero movie. He also sports a CreepyMonotone, stares bug-eyed into the camera, and wears sweaters that nearly blend in with the background behind him. In an unrelated video, he can be seen lurking in a randon FreezeFrameBonus beside Brad's chair.

* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' has Numbuh 19th Century who, just like his name suggests, was frozen at some point in the early 1800s and then unfrozen in the modern day. He's missed out on two centuries of SocietyMarchesOn and therefore his views on women are somewhat...outmoded. Theoretically, the trope justifies itself, but what makes him a StrawMisogynist is a) his views on women are even more patronizing than the StayInTheKitchen attitude you might expect from the 19th Century, b) he's directly contrasted to the [[StrawFeminist boy-hating]] Numbuh 86, with whom he has BelligerentSexualTension, and c) his antiquated social views should go ''far'' beyond merely being condescending to women (he should, for example, be rather surprised that the black Numbuh 5 is a KND Operative rather than, you know, being enslaved.) This one can probably be chalked up to PoliticallyCorrectHistory.

** The Sontarans from [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS30E4TheSontaranStratagem}} The Sontaran Stratagem]][=/=][[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E5ThePoisonSky The Poison Sky]]" refer to women being weaker than men. By [[{{Recap/DoctorWho2012CSTheSnowmen}} Christmas 2012]], they're back to being asexuals who have trouble understanding gender at all.

* 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 misandrist, 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.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' has [[spoiler:Adachi, who turns out to be the killer]]. [[MemeticMutation Bitches and whores]], indeed.
* One bonus episode of ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers of Sky'' stars the legendary all-female Team Charm. A minor character, a Houndoom, exists in that chapter and only gets two lines: one is expressing blatant sexism towards Team Charm, and the other reveals him as a hypocritical coward. The Pokedex mentions that horn size determines rank in a Houndoom pack, and the sprite art shows males always have bigger horns, [[FridgeBrilliance heavily implying the species as a whole is male dominated.]]
* In ''VideoGame/LunarWalkingSchool'', the protagonists are a trio of girls who often contend with Ant, a {{Jerkass}} rival at magic school. He and his friends quickly establish themselves to be condenscendingly sexist twerps. Iason, the Dojo teacher, is also obsessed with manhood.

Added DiffLines:

* The Taurs from the 2016 series of ''ComicBook/TheAwesomeSlapstick'', composite parodies of ''Franchise/TheSmurfs'' and ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', are shown to be very sexist toward their Smurfette equivalent Taurette, thinking that she's helpless without them to rescue her all the time and stating that it's within their rights to be condescending toward her. Just in case it isn't clear that their treatment of her is bad, the Taurs' leader is even named Patriarchy Taur.

This trope often relies heavily on a pro-male, anti-female, version of MarsAndVenusGenderContrast. Compare HeManWomanHater, for a generally less extreme (and often more rounded) version, EffeminateMisogynisticGuy for especially feminine varieties of misogynist, and [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero Licensed Sexist]] for the comedic version.

** ''Series/{{Buffy The Vampire Slayer}}:'' In the episode "[[{{Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS5E6Family}} 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.
