* Dean Winchester on ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''. Dean's actually an interesting case, although he sleeps with a lot of women and is certainly lustful, its implied on multiple occasions he genuinely would love to settle down and get married. But due to the nature of his job (being a HunterOfMonsters) its to dangerous and impossible for him to have a truly stable relationship. As such he sleeps with multiple women, to help fill the void of what he knows he'll never have. This is confirmed during episode 10x16 "Paint it Black." Among many things in the episode implied that Dean is ready to settle down, the scene with the priest in the confessional is probably the most telling:

---->'''Dean:''' You know, the life I live, the work I doI pretty much just figured that that was all there was to me, you know? Tear around and jam the key in the ignition and haul ass until I ran out of gas. I guess I just thought sooner or later, Id go out the same way that I live pedal to the metal, and that would be it.\\

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12290311/1/The-Black-Emperor The Black Emperor]]'', Lelouch and Milly are an unusual example of a Casanova ''couple''. The two of them have a hobby of seducing girls with the intent of sleeping with them, sometimes [[ThreeWaySex together]]. Despite this, [[LadykillerInLove they still have a deep and genuine love for one another]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Community}}'':
** Jeff Winger is the first and most shameless example, shown to have the most active sex life of the group. In fact, he initially started the study group in order to get into Britta's pants, though it evolved beyond that quickly. In a season 5 episode it's mentioned that he keeps trophies of his conquests, which everyone else finds creepy.
** Pierce Hawthorne, being just an older and racist Jeff, has displayed this on several occasions. He often tells stories about his past sexual exploits with little to no prompting, and it's implied that he really is as successful as he claims. At one point he seduces a teacher with no difficulty whatsoever in order to save the class from a test that no one was prepared for.
** Abed Nadir, surprisingly. While he's a shameless nerd with an AmbiguousDisorder, his analytical abilities allow him to identify a girl's fantasy man, and then his knowledge of tropes and archetypes allows him to play that role perfectly. One episode has the study group trying to get him a girlfriend, only for him to reveal at the end that he can easily get a girl when he wants one, even if he normally doesn't care.

* Creator/ClintEastwood. Seriously, just look at his OtherWiki entry. To quote: ''Eastwood told biographer Richard Schickel that he lost his virginity at age 14. He has fathered at least seven children by five different women and been described as a "serial womanizer". According to biographers Marc Eliot and Patrick Mc Gilligan, Eastwood always had a strong sexual appetite and had many affairs with women through the years, including actresses Catherine Deneuve, Jean Seberg, Peggy Lipton, Kay Lenz, Jamie Rose, Inger Stevens, Jo Ann Harris, Jane Brolin, Jill Banner, script analyst Megan Rose, and swimming champion Anita Lhoest. Biographers claim he has also fathered at least four children that have been aborted, and another who was given up for adoption in 1953. Biographers and friend Paul Lippman have claimed that Eastwood was particularly sexually active and promiscuous in the 1970s and that he used his apartment close to the Hog's Breath Inn which he purchased in Carmel in the early 1970s to meet young ladies for "nooners" and "five in the afternooners". According to Lippman, "Eastwood seemed to get a bang out of this kinkier side to himself and rarely concealed it, often gloated about it".''

* Don Sebastiano, at the SuperHeroSchool Whateley Academy in the WhateleyUniverse. The Don (as he is also known) is a major campus supervillain, and enjoys romancing women. Once he's gotten what he's after he likes to dump them with as much public humiliation as he can arrange. He seems to enjoy the 'hurting them' part more than the 'boinking them' part, which makes this more like a KavorkaMan activity.

* To some extent, the protagonists in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' can be this, depending on the player's decisions. If you're dating more than one girl and they discover what's happening, chances are you'll have to deal with some VERY pissed off girls and generally put the situation right. This is less so in ''Persona 4'' where you won't be penalised as much,[[note]]Until [[UpdatedRerelease Golden]] anyway[[/note]] but you can still date/flirt with nearly every girl '''in the game''' [[spoiler: (except for Hanako and Nanako, thankfully)]], AND you even get called an emotional heartbreaker during the cross-dressing pageant:

** ''VideoGame/Persona5'' is a lot less forgiving about dating more than one girl. Oh sure, you can have a romance with every single datable girl in the game at once, but they'll inevitably find out on Valentine's Day and respond by leaving you black and blue on the floor.
