Because it's considered that BiggerIsBetterInBed, those men that have smaller genitalia are considered AcceptableHardLuckTargets. This is almost always PlayedForLaughs, since NakedPeopleAreFunny.

It is often implied that people with a small penis are CompensatingForSomething.

It is one of the few body image tropes that is AlwaysMale.

Possibly one of the reasons that MaleFrontalNudity is not common, since MostWritersAreMale. This is mostly a TakeOurWordForIt trope. Can be a part of a HumiliationConga or ShamefulStrip. "It's cold in here!" may be invoked as a (TruthInTelevision) defense.

Inverse of GagPenis. Contrast BiggusDickus. ACupAngst could be considered a DistaffCounterpart of sorts.

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* It is implied that 14-year-old Shinji has a small penis in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. He runs out of the bathroom completely naked, having been scared by Misato's pet penguin while in the bath. As he runs out, his genitalia is [[VisualPun covered by a small carton of toothpicks]] in the foreground. Misato asks him to "cover that up" and he quickly does so.
** While deliberately low-res, the final battle of ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion 1.0'' does give us a brief monochrome shot of a naked Shinji that confirms his equipment is indeed unremarkable.
* Japan in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', according to Italy. "... Japanese people grower, not shower."
* Apparently, Takamura from ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo''. It would certainly explain why he and the other boxers tease and bully [[GagPenis Ippo]], as well as his penchant for pranking people in the shower. (Which hilariously backfires when his victim is ''[[TheidiotFromOsaka Sendoh]]'' of all people.)
* Kip [=McDowell=] of ''Manga/GreenBlood.'' An entire arc is started after [[DestinationDefenestration he kills a prostitute]] for calling him "cute."
* As Sanageyama challenges Ryuko to a rematch despite his [[FullFrontalAssault present lack of clothing]] in the sixth episode of ''Anime/KillLaKill'', Mako decides to take measurements.

* In the furry comic ''ComicBook/{{Cruelty}}'', Tobias is said to be pretty small--even for a feline! Whether or not that's true is not confirmed.

He laughs and plays along thinking this is all just part of the foreplay, until he's [[NakedPeopleTrappedOutside pushed out of the room naked]] into the hallway crowded with people, and they tell him to take his wet noodle somewhere else while they [[BiggerIsBetterinBed go find a real man to please them.]]

The second said "I have small feet - I'll write to the Guinness Book of World Records and see if I have the smallest feet!" The first said "I have a small penis - I'll write to the Guinness Book of World Records and see if I have the smallest penis!" So they all wrote in. A week later they all received letters and they gathered at the bar to open them together. The first opened up his envelope and pulled out a big check exclaiming "I have the smallest hands!" The second opened up his envelope and pulled out a big check exclaiming "I have the smallest feet!" The third opened up his envelope and pulled out a letter.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' has done this a few times:
** In one episode, UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden is shown to have an absurdly microscopic penis.
-->'''Cartman''': So ''that's'' what this is all about!
** "T.M.I." has the idea of compensating for a small penis as its entire premise. It turns out that all of the angry people in the world are just pissed off because they're below the average length. To fix the problem, the "average length" is shortened (although, ironically, Cartman ''still'' doesn't make the cut).
** In an early ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''-centric episode, the Japanese creators keep talking about how small their penises are as opposed the well-endowed Americans. One woman calls them out on this, saying that they're only saying this to distract the male Americans. While this ''is'' true, one of the creators proves that he's not lying about the size of his penis, either. One of said creators also uses the "your penis so big" line on a ''woman'', causing the other creator to smack him upside the head for the screw up.
** In the episode "[[Recap/SouthParkS17E6GingerCow Ginger Cow]]", the appearance of a red cow leads to peace in the Middle East. To keep Cartman from revealing the truth that the cow is a fake and ruin everything, Kyle agrees to do whatever he asks. When Stan tries to maintain the charade by saying that it really was a miracle, a rabbi notes that the prophecy actually stated a fat child with a small penis would decorate a cow to look ginger, not that one would miraculously just fall from the sky. As everyone is ready to return to fighting, Kyle tells them that the prophecy really was fulfilled. When he tries to get Cartman to back him up, Cartman says he can't lie: he has a huge dick.
* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' had a bit with two people standing in a hallway. The woman pulls a hotdog out of a bun and throws it at the door at the end.
--> '''Woman''': Do ya ''see'' the problem here?
--> '''Man''': Yeah, that hallway is like ''bizarrely'' huge.
** In another episode, The Nerd gets knocked out and stripped naked. Everybody makes fun of his tiny penis.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtHead'' episode "Sporting Goods," the duo tried to buy protective cups, but the smallest ones were still too big. The sporting goods owner gave them a couple of racquetball eyepatches for free, which fit them perfectly. Daria walked in, saw them walking out of the dressing rooms wearing the patches, did a double take, and snapped a photo for the school newspaper.
--> '''Daria''': Wow! Even smaller than I thought!
* In the ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}'' episode "Benderama", the crew has to deliver personal hygiene supplies to an ugly giant. He is 50 feet tall, and while most of his body parts are enormous, one part...''isn't''.
--> '''Amy''': Colossal tooth whitener, mega deodorant, humungous acne cream...awwww...and one regular size condom.
--> '''Bender''': All that ''and'' a small weiner? This guy's got it goin' on!
