** In the books it's a little more [[ByronicHero Byronic]]. For example, in ''Literature/{{Moonraker}}'' he expects to automatically be rewarded for his efforts by sex with Gala Brand, only for Brand to reveal that she wasn't kidding about being engaged.

** ''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.

* Anatole Kuragin from ''WarAndPeace''. He's a well-known womanizer whose first interaction with a semi-main character is mademoiselle Bourienne, a maid at Prince Bolkonsky's house, while Anatole was there to court the prince's daughter [[TheCareTaker Marya]]. He later marries the daughter of a Polish farmer in exchange for room and board during one military campaign, and then, just for fun, sets out to [[BreakTheCutie marry-and-kidnap Natasha Rostov]].

* Music/DavidBowie.
* If RealLife was fiction, than Prince Felix zu Schwarzenberg would be a very dark take on this trope, possibly verging on deconstruction. A major ladies man in his younger days, Felix [[ReallyGetsAround slept]], [[TheStoner drugged]], and [[TheAlcoholic drank]] his way across every major court in Europe, and scored with some of the most sought after women of the time period. And by the time he was forty, he was so burned out that people who knew him said that there was nothing left, save cold, icy ambition (for his country, not himself). Becoming Foreign-Minister of Austria in 1848, Felix served as [[EvilChancellor advisor]] and [[EvilMentor mentor]] to [[TheEmperor Emperor Franz-Josef]] advocating a [[PragmaticVillainy pragmatic]], [[TheCynic cynical]] foreign policy based on [[MyCountryRightOrWrong what was best for Austria]]. When asked if Franz-Josef should show mercy to the rebels of 1848, Felix responded that "Mercy is a fine quality, but first, we must have some hangings." He later stated that Austria would "shock the world by the depth of its ingratitude." He died prematurely in 1852 of a stroke, mourned in Austria, and hated everywhere else. In London, his [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder duplicity]] and his womanising actually earned him the nickname "The Prince of Cadland."
** Felix reportedly got a woman pregnant, than proceeded to end the affair and inform her husband of what had occured, getting her thrown out in the street. The woman in question was well-known for her inability to keep her legs closed (she was in fact famous in the tabloids for sleeping around), but Felix's behaviour was so callous that the press actually sided with her.

* Gene Simmons of {{KISS}} fame, who has the pictures to prove it. Though his claims are still probably exaggerated. In fact, could be applied to many rock stars to some degree.

* Pretty common among the main male characters of the ''SwordOfTruth'' series. Nathan Rahl, the prophet, often badgers the Sisters of the Light to send women to his rooms while he is in his GildedCage, and can often be seen with a woman on each arm after getting out. Zedd is implied to have interactions with several women over the course of the series. Richard himself, while more content to just have his one significant other, still manages to end up married to three different women and have several more who want him. The male villains are darker versions of this.
