* Ken in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3''.''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'' is a CampStraight counterpart to Barbie who has a vast walk-in closet full of his favorite fancy outfits. He loves his clothes so much that Barbie manages to extort his cooperation against Lotso by tying him to a chair and forcing him to watch her rip up his outfits one by one.

* [[Literature/ThePictureOfDorianGray Dorian Gray]] and Lord Henry Wotton are classic examples. Unsurprisingly, they were created by Master Dandy, Oscar Wilde.
* [[TallDarkAndHandsome William Marsh]] in Victorian-set fantasy DarknessVisible is a very snappy dresser. He doesn't really fit the "avoids physical confrontation" part (luckily for [[BlueBlood Lewis]], who is only five feet tall, and never learned not to pick fights with people twice his weight). Marsh is an ardent admirer of OscarWilde, and his mode of dress reflects his philosophical beliefs.

A rough DistaffCounterpart would be TheFashionista. For the version of this that jumps at combat rather than running from it, see AgentPeacock. Compare and contrast PimpDuds (and the JiveTurkey), who however hold more similarities to the "macaronis".

* Huge numbers of men in the 17th to 19th centuries would have fit this trope, since it was the style of the time. Notable dandies include Beau Brummell (the common name for this trope in the 19th century), King George IV, and SamuelPepys, who once fretted for days about whether his lace cuffs should be trimmed with silver or gold. Note that there was little HoYay to this, since TheDandy was seen as almost hyper-heterosexual. (After all, [[ZZTop every girl's crazy for a]] SharpDressedMan.)

* Vince Noir of ''TheMightyBoosh'', especially in the third season. His hair is always dyed, teased and styled, he wears capes, gloves, low-cut jumpsuits, stack-heeled platform boots, feather boas, and most of his wardrobe is shiny and/or skin-tight. On the one occasion he shows up dressed in a normal, conservative outfit with plain hair, Howard faints.

* The second set of ''SakuraTaisen'' {{OVA}}s feature "Dan Dandy", a would-be "stylish criminal" whose path as a secondary character keeps intersecting that of the Hanagumi. Dan is foppish, a slave to what he considers the height of fashion for American gangsters, and only marginally competent; the Hanagumi don't even really notice him when they cross paths. (Oddly, he originated in one of the live ''Sakura Taisen'' stage shows, and [[CanonImmigrant became popular enough among fans that he was included in the OVA series]].)

* In ''Theatre/{{Patience}}'', Bunthorne is always dressed in the height of fashion.



* At least 2 in {{Noblesse}} Raizel is perfectly capable of magically materializing clothing, but his dandy butler Frankenstein insists that he wear only the finest clothing made by hmself of only the highest quality material, as stated in Noblesse S 1. Then we have metrosexual Tao. In Noblesse S, one of his coworkers stated that he looks like a woman & acts like a little boy. While most of the cast has a static wardrobe, he rotates his clothing, which includes a famine off-shoulder sweater. He also wears more makeup than any of the girls.
* Conrad from ''Webcomic/HannaIsNotABoysName'' dresses better than the rest of the cast and is easily the most useless when it comes to actual fights. The author herself even described him as 'metrosexual.'
* Luca of ''SfeerTheory'' is a {{Downplayed}} version. Word of God says he's rather vain and takes painstaking care of his appearance. It's subtle in the comic itself where Luca is usually fixing up his often mussed up hair and visibly upset whenever it or his clothes are ruined.
* Finn from ''WarriorU''. An ''entire storyline'' might never have occurred if his manlier friend Harv had only bitten the bullet and gone shopping with him (which he eventually did).
