* 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}}''.

* 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.

* This was pretty much the entirety of Creator/AndyKaufman's in-ring gimmick, declaring himself "The Inter-Gender Wrestling Champion Of The World" - which, ironically, was also quite progressive in that he was more than willing to wrestle female opponents. But since this all occurred before people were aware of {{Kayfabe}}, Kaufman was viewed as being overtly misogynistic, rather than a MeanCharacterNiceActor.

** In all fairness, the Emperor considers ''everyone'' beneath him, regardless of gender or species. He also appointed Mara Jade, one of his best students, "The Emperor's Hand" - making her essentially the third most powerful person in the Empire behind Darth Vader and himself (albeit secretly).

* Wrestling/SantinoMarella actually attempted to invert this by mocking ''all'' the Divas in the lead-up to the Miss ''[=WrestleMania=]'' contest in 2009 - but trying to justify it by claiming ''he'' was the victim of discrimination, wanting to compete for the title of Miss ''[=WrestleMania=]'' and claiming he was being unfairly excluded "because of my genitalia." Whether this was InferioritySuperiorityComplex or just PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad is anyone's guess. [[spoiler: Ironically, Santino ''really did'' enter the match disguised as a woman and managed to win the whole thing, with the result that s/he turned face.]]

* ''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 calls him out on having a MadonnaWhoreComplex). All of them take the speech to heart and have grown out of this trope by the season's end.
