The trope is named for GiacomoCasanova(1725-1798), a soldier, spy, diplomat, adventurer, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and librarian]] whose extensive but [[UnreliableNarrator unreliable autobiography]] (in which he almost literally described himself as God's Gift to Women[[note]]"Feeling that I was born for the sex opposite of mine, I have always loved it and done all that I could to make myself loved by it."[[/note]]) established his eternal fame as a lover. It should be noted that the historical Casanova was closer to a ChivalrousPervert who really was looking for love... just with women who [[YourCheatingHeart were locked in loveless political marriages]] -- and also gained his successes [[KavorkaMan famously]] [[UglyGuyHotWife ugly]]. ([[http://gutenberg.spiegel.de/gutenb/autoren/bilder/casanova.jpg Definitely]] he was [[http://www.ladepeche.fr/content/photo/biz/2010/11/07/201011070937_w350.jpg no Heath Ledger]].) Interesting and prone [[UsefulNotes to be noted]] for [[CasanovaWannabe his modern wannabes]], he was [[TheDungAges one of the few 18th century men who bathed almost daily]] and asked the same thing from his partners.

** ''Trigger Mortis'' has Bond observe the hordes of pretty girls clamouring over the winning racers. However, he thinks that he would feel extremely uneasy if he was in the same situation, as he prefers having a single strong and independent women to multiple ones fighting for attention.

* Spyros Stavaronas, the attractive young shrimp fisherman in ''{{Alexandra}}'' by Scott O'Dell. At first, he uses his charms to distract Alexandra so his henchmen can smuggle cocaine on her boat. When Alexandra finds out, he further tries to seduce her into keeping his secret and not turning them into the cops.

The sexual predator -- a man who relentlessly pursues, lands, loves, and then abandons members of the opposite sex, a skill bestowed upon him to demonstrate what a badass he is. Sometimes comic, sometimes a monster, always successful, this character leaves behind a string of broken hearts, and occasional [[WomanScorned vows of]] {{revenge}} that are rarely fulfilled. Casanova's only motivation is indulging his {{lust}} and desire, sating them with the bodies of his conquests.

* The Casanova trope is also usually only applied to Caucasian men. [[MatzoFever Non]]-[[MightyWhiteyAndMellowYellow white]] [[WhereDaWhiteWomenAt men]] are commonly depicted as perverts when they express or give in to their sexual desires. [[DoubleStandard Also, while white male Casanovas being with non-white women is generally portrayed as fine]], men of color are often limited in a work to [[LikeGoesWithLike dating, having sex, marrying or even flirting only with women of the same nationality or skin color as them]]. If they do build an interracial relationship with someone else, or have a sexual encounter, [[MalignedMixedMarriage it is usually held in scorn by some in-universe]] ([[{{Hatedom}} and sometimes]] [[CreatorBacklash out-of-universe]], [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped unfortunately]]).

* ''Literature/GuardiansOfTheFlame'': Walter Slovotsky. At the beginning of the story, he and Doria have already been "friends with benefits" for some time. His charming personality and status as a football star imply that he's very popular with girls. During the first trip to The Other Side, he also sleeps with Andy-Andy (angering Karl, who's attracted to her). She ends up with Karl though. Even after he gets married, Walter doesn't stop, and continues having sex with other women.
