* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WchseC9aKTU Two Trucks]] by Music/LemonDemon plays this to an absurd degree, where the sight of two trucks having passionate sex is apparently ''so'' manly (and [[{{Eagleland}} American]]) that it causes any grown man who sees it to start weeping and involuntarily flexing their muscles, while fireworks and eagles appear in the sky.

* ''Film/{{Commando}}'' has a confrontation between ''Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger'' and Bill Duke (a large imposing man) in a hotel room, which they initiate by shouting insults at each other such as "You scared? You should be, because this Green Beret's going to beat your ass!" followed by "I eat Green Beret's for breakfast, and right now I'm very hungry!", etc. Rae Dawn Chong (a small slim actress) as Cindy exhibits great intelligence and wisdom by cowering in the corner while these two behemoths demolish not only the room they are in, but several rooms around them. The trope is invoked by her comments while this is happening:

* ''WebComic/ElGoonishShive'': subverted. On two different occasions, characters who were [[GenderBender transforming from female to male]] became suddenly aggressive, seeming due to the transformation. In the first case, it later came to light that Tedd's outburst it was due to [[spoiler: him being emotionally manipulated by Magus to make him transform Elliot]]. In the second, Susan's assertiveness only ''seemed'' uncharacteristic to those who didn't know her very well; Sarah, who was more familiar with her, said it was just Susan being Susan, it's just that she usually keeps a tighter leash on herself in public.

* It happened literally once in ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}''. Artax was brewing some potions when an explosion caused him to inhale a cloud of Storm Giant testosterone-laden steam. This caused him to decide that he, Yeagar, and Nodwick need to do some manly bonding by going camping with no equipment, which rapidly turned into a parody of ''Film/TheBlairWitchProject''.

* {{Sabaton}} are a Swedish PowerMetal band who's songs are mostly about the history of warfare and sung by a large and muscular BadassBaritone.
