* In a Miller Lite series of commercials called "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RLCD-PpWqU Man Law]]" delved in many other important subjects like "is a person allowed to stick a finger in a beer bottle to carry it" and "how many beer cans can you take home from a friend's party", and in one a panel of men debate how long you have to wait before making a move on a friend's ex-girlfriend. Opinions range from "forever" to "two Saturdays, or a new hair-do, whichever comes first." Just for the record, the final word given in said argument is "six months".

* In an amusing example of defictionalization (see the ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' example below), Barney's 'The Bro Code' has been published as an actual book. Hilarity ensues, naturally.

* Directly referenced in ''[[Film/{{Neighbors2014}} Neighbors]]'', and the attempt to [[AvertedTrope avert this]] ends up being one of the strikes against the frat.
* ''TeamAmericaWorldPolice'' has a sort of GenderFlipped version--Sarah tells Lisa that she's attracted to Gary, and when Lisa winds up sleeping with Gary, Sarah feels hurt and betrayed.

** Its most famous violation and discussion came when footballer John Terry slept with national teammate Wayne Bridge's ex. John Terry was also married, so legally he committed adultery. While some would have ignored that, it was coupled with the fact it was his team mate's ex that got the attention (not to mention the fact most people were confused and thought that Bridge was in fact still seeing the woman in question, where as they had indeed separated).

* SaturdayNightLive parodied this in a sketch involving two bros who get into an argument over a woman, hash things out, and manage to reconcile, all by using nothing but various inflections of the word "bro".

* In ''[[ComicBook/UltimateFantasticFour Ultimate Enemy]]'', Ben Grimm confesses to Sue that he's fallen for her, but had refused to act on or acknowledge those feelings because she was with Reed. After some consideration, Sue realizes that [[LoveEpiphany she felt the same way]]. Though we never get to see how this might have affected Ben's friendship with Reed, since [[spoiler:the team had already dissolved]] by the time Ben confessed, and by the time Sue and Ben [[spoiler:got together, Reed was trapped in the N-Zone, apparently presumed dead]].

* On ''Series/{{Arrow}}'', this is a standing problem between childhood best friends Oliver Queen and Tommy Merlyn, both of whom are in love with Laurel Lance. [[spoiler: Recognizing that Laurel is still in love with Oliver, Tommy breaks up with her. Oliver then entreats Tommy to reconsider and get back with her, since his own life as the Hood would make having a relationship with Laurel very difficult. Immediately after having this conversation, Oliver violates the Bro Code and betrays Tommy by seeking out Laurel and having sex with her. Tommy, on his way to come see her, observes through the window.]]

** Its most famous violation and discussion came when footballer John Terry slept with national teammate Wayne Bridge's ex. There was much notation that while there was no technical legal harm, the Man Code had clearly been broken.
*** Actually John Terry was married, so legally he committed adultery. While some would ignored that, it was coupled with the fact it was his team mates ex that got the attention (not to mention the fact most people were confused and thought that Bridge was in fact still seeing the woman in question, where as they had indeed separated).
