** Chibodee himself has naturally pink ''hair'' (well, pink bangs), and is a BadAss champion boxer and ''major'' ChickMagnet. He's also the ''Queen'' of Spades in the Shuffle Alliance (and the former Queen of Spades ''also'' was male), admits being a MommasBoy (due to a rather sad case of MissingMom) and is fiercely protective of both Rain and his FourGirlEnsemble crew.

*** [[AllThereInTheManual According to side material]], Amuro Ray, the main hero of the original series, [[OlderAndWiser by the time of the closing moments of]] [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta]] is somewhere offscreen leading a spec-ops squad, fighting the Titans in [[http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/MSZ-006-3A_Zeta_Gundam_3A_Type his own pimped out Zeta Gundam with a custom white and pink paintjob]]. [[{{Badass}} He can definitely afford it.]]

** Male characters frequently striking flamboyant model-esque poses is a recurring theme in the series. ''Especially'' the {{Badass}} ones.

* ''Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico'''s main character, Akito Tenkawa, pilots a hot pink HumongousMecha ''and'' is an exceptional cook -- this is a man who made crepes suzette as field rations. He's not a {{Badass}} in any sense of the word, but out of all the things people look down on him for, his ride and his skill in the kitchen are not among them.

** Some non-Japanese fanboys refuse to believe that AxCrazy demon-possessed Gaara has the word 'love' written on his head and get mad when fangirls draw him with a heart. "No, it must be something Badass like death, or suffering." Nope. [[http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs12/f/2006/330/a/1/Chibi_Gaara_Colored_by_Monylove17.png It's love]]. Carved into his forehead by his sand-shaping powers the moment he [[BreakTheCutie finally broke]] after his [[spoiler:Uncle Yashamaru tried to kill him and then told him that he never was and never would be loved]]. This symbolizes that he loves only himself and fights only for himself, prior to his HeelFaceTurn.

** Sanji is a five-star chef who is always impeccably dressed and has a pronounced tendency to [[LovableSexManiac turn into subservient, heart-eyed goo]] in the presence of [[HelloNurse a pretty girl]]. He's also a grade A {{Badass}} DanceBattler and in the top three fighters on one of the most feared and renowned pirate crews in the world. Oh, and not forgetting the pink apron with the panda logo or his Skypiea shirts. [[http://persephohi.deviantart.com/art/OP-Sanji-s-secret-DF-power-20914986 Search your feelings, you know it to be true]].

* ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'': [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Ruby]], who participates in Pokémon Contests, regularly grooms his team, and even sews and trims outfits for man and 'Mon alike. Interesting case since we see the pink before we're given any hint to the man. Still, this is the son of [[{{Badass}} Gym Leader Norman]] we're talking about.

** Somewhat closer to the title of the trope, in the anime one of the outfits Ranma [[LimitedWardrobe most commonly wears]] is a [[SleevesAreForWimps short-sleeved]] pastel-orange shirt and little red bowtie. Keep in mind that this is the same [[{{Badass}} practitioner]] of SupernaturalMartialArts who can [[RapidFireFisticuffs punch you over 500 times per second]], [[SuperSpeed move so fast you can't even see him do so]], [[SuperStrength smash through concrete without noticing]] and not only [[MadeOfIron withstand a blow that should have broken every bone in his body]], but be capable of fighting on at full capacity [[HealingFactor mere moments later]].

* Bontenmaru from ''Manga/SamuraiDeeperKyo'' can literally rip a man in half with his bare hands. He hangs out with several {{badass}} killers, and reads shoujo manga.

* The {{badass}} AntiHero of ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'', known and feared throughout the underworld as the Black Reaper, who earned his reputation by killing dozens of [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual contractors]] ''[[RedBaron before]]'' [[EmpoweredBadassNormal he got superpowers]], is a skinny, innocuous guy who loves to cook. Seriously, leave him in a kitchen with nothing to do for five minutes and he'll start chopping vegetables. Valuable skill for a BigEater, especially since the show drops strong hints that it's the [[PowerIncontinence renumeration for his powers]]. [[spoiler:(It's actually just a quirk.)]]

** In a (rather obscure, actually) Drama CD, America is naming all of the Allies after Franchise/PowerRangers. He doesn't know who to pick for the pink ranger, but who volunteers? [[HuskyRusskie Russia]]. Who is not only the same height as Sweden, but also may enjoy bludgeoning people with wrenches and pipes. Russia is also seen cooking, wearing a pink apron with USA(rabbit) written on it. And just like England likes embroidering, Russia is seen happily knitting.

** To be fair, JJBA has always been heavily influenced by Western music trends, and one of its more notable influences was 80's American music, an era which gave us, among other things, ''hair metal'', which is essentially the real-life personification of this trope.

** Taking things to a new level, Goku's BadFuture EvilCounterpart in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', "Black", gets pink hair when he goes Super Saiyan. And kicks all kinds of ass with it.

** Satan/[[{{Bowdlerise}} Hercule]]. Strongest human who isn't one of the Z-Fighters, OverprotectiveDad, world martial arts champion (and FakeUltimateHero)... and a dog lover, who managed to turn [[PsychopathicManchild Majin Buu]] into a ''good guy''. By '''''befriending him'''''. No, not [[DefeatMeansFriendship like]] [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha that]].

* Shiro Takamachi of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', a [[VideoGame/TriangleHeart3SweetSongsForever ninja-assassin bodyguard that frequently took on terrorist organizations]] and has the [[GoodScarsEvilScars multiple scars to prove it]]. Eventually retired after [[SchrodingersCat almost getting killed]] to become... the owner and baker of the local cafe that specializes in cakes, cream puffs, and other sweets.

*** In something of a BrickJoke, Vegeta is seen wearing a pink apron in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' while doing chores for Beerus and Whis. He's embarrassed when Goku sees him wearing it, but this seems to be the fact of the apron and not the color, as he doesn't remotely complain that Goku's apron is blue.
