This trope is in play when a work or character is loaded with such absurd/extreme examples of "masculine" stereotypes that you pass into parody. It is, simply, badass made silly.

Works with testosterone poisoning are often intentional parodies; characters can contract it accidentally far more easily.

While the trope RatedMForManly employs many motifs, it is first and foremost a celebratory trope played straight: Testosterone Poisoning is about works that parody manliness, or play it for laughs, by taking it to the extreme.

Some works which start out as RatedMForManly can cross over into Testosterone Poisoning territory later; two fairly reliable indicators that it's got a case of Testosterone Poisoning are the presence of the phrase "Are you man enough for...", or something in a similar vein; and a direct statement that the product or work is "not for women".

The Website/DarwinAwards website uses the term to describe people who died attempting to pull off absurdly masculine stunts -- the sort of things that would end up on this trope page. It was even used in the title for one death where a man lopped his own head off with a chainsaw in an attempt to "prove" to his friend that he was tougher.

Compare with
* RatedMForManly: where appeal to masculinity doesn't reach parody stages
* MemeticBadass: where the masculine aspects have reached memetic standards, whether or not they really exist.
* AwesomenessIsVolatile
* ImpossibleGenius, when it's a character's intelligence rather than their manliness that enables them to do absurd things.

Not to be confused with the actual act of putting oneself in harms way to prove one's manliness: that one is covered by MachoMasochism (although overlap is common).

The phrase was possibly coined by Creator/AlanAlda for a book on feminism, and popularized in 1984 by Dr. Helen Caldicott, a physician strongly opposed to nuclear weapons. In her book ''Missile Envy'', she speculates that the arms race is partly fueled by this.

* The Miller Lite "Man Law" commercials.
* A Foster's Beer "How to speak Australian" commercial crosses into this territory (crossed with LandDownUnder): It shows a rugged man in the outback wrap up a bunch of power tools, regular tools, etc. in a leather skin, tie it around a huge wrench, heft it onto his shoulder and walk badassly into the sunset. The word was "man purse." It's followed by a can of Foster's being dramatically slammed onto a table, with the voice announcing "Beer."
** They're all like that. Giant man-eating shark: "Guppy." Can of Fosters: *Thoom!* "Beer."
** Huge steak with a sprig of parsley on it: "Salad."
** [[UseYourHead Headbutting a door in]]: "Locksmith."
** Though they're not all positive. One commercial had a man attempting to twist his body so he could fit into an already-overloaded truck: "Yoga".
** Being crushed under a massive rock and [[MajorInjuryUnderreaction saying "Ouch" very quietly]]: "Crybaby."
** Being chased by some ferocious predator? [[AcceptableTargets Tourist.]]
** A man goes flying out a barroom door, followed by a woman, who is implied to have been the one to throw him: "No." In Australia, even the women are manly!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLIIKrJ6nnI He's hungry for danger, he can take the heat! Fully Loaded Man has balls of meat!]] And yes, that's a real ad. Made even manlier by the fact that it was filmed down river from a grade five rapid, on the Kawarau River, in Queenstown New Zealand.

-->(Skiing off a jump) "I'm a Man." (Crashes through a tree, suddenly pumping a barbell one-handed on an exercise bench) But sometimes I like to [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment smell like a different smelling man]]." (crashes into a house, walks out with a new outfit, a badass moustache and a golf club) "Luckily, Old Spice makes a variety of different scents." (Drives a golf ball one-handed and proceeds to ''bite off a chunk of the golf club and eat it'') "For ''men''."
** Old Spice commercials in general are this which is to be expected when you have spokesmen like Creator/BruceCampbell.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owGykVbfgUE The Man Your Man Could Smell Like.]], though that's littered with MrFanservice.
** Testosterone levels continue to rise with the new series of Website/YouTube responses to people complimenting and asking questions of the Old Spice Man. Monocle Smile!

* Snickers ads featuring [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NySN_plfiNI Mr]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiixrRgysks T,]] ''Get some nuts!''
* Michelin brand deodorant features statements like "If your ratio of lighter fluid to charcoal is three to one, you might be a Michelin Man."
* Most [[http://www.utilikilts.com/customer/mockumercials/ Utilikilt mockumercials,]] combined with AllWomenAreLustful. ''Real'' men wear kilts.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQq_Rzn-yu0 This commercial for the high-performance version of the Skoda Fabia.]] Made of MEANER stuff!
* Energy drinks. Like are Venom: Death Adder, which claims to be "the cold-blooded venom of the Death Adder, delivered in a fruit punch strike," and the Monster coffee energy drinks, which are "coffee done the Monster way, straight up, with a take no prisoners attitude and the experience and know-how to back it up."
* Many extra hot sauces use this as their marketing pitch; they convey the dubious message that you need to be extremely manly to eat that stuff and come out okay. For example, [[http://www.extremefood.com/shop/home.php Blair's Sauces and Snacks]], whose slogan is "Don't fear death, fear the consequences," has a product line named Death Sauce. Some other extreme hot sauces by various vendors have names like Demon Ichor, Pyro Diablo, Smack My Ass and Call Me Sally, Mega Death, Magma, Vicious Viper, You Can't Handle This Hot Sauce, Rectal Rocket Fuel, Ass In Space ("Ass-tronomically Hot!"), etc.
* [[{{Squick}} BEAR SEMEN]]: [[http://bearsemen.com/ THE]] '''[[http://bearsemen.com/ MANLIEST]]''' [[http://bearsemen.com/ DRINK ON EARTH]]
* Dashing Superguy from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gU6cHCkWqy8 the American commercial]] for ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamland''.
* The commercial for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Li7RVz0i-Tw Doritos Jacked.]]
* The commercials for [[http://www.brutworld.com/ Brut]] products. To name one example, the mere use of this product instantly impregnates a man's wife, fish, and dog.
* Doctor Pepper 10's wilderness ads show a manly pioneer being so manly, he can whistle and cause an eagle to dive into the lake and get him a Doctor Pepper, can make a bear paddle his canoe for him, and can carry a massive tree trunk under one arm. This was intentionally comedic. In another ad, the characters talk about how manly Doctor Pepper 10 is while escaping from a pastiche of 80's action movie bad guys. Though intended to be funny, it came off as sexist when the manly man said it wasn't a drink for women, as did the text at the end of the commercial.
* The [[http://www.mammothsupply.co.nz/ Mammoth Supply Company]], a division of UsefulNotes/NewZealand dairy giant Fonterra, markets its products as "real man food, man".
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bpsuq354Sao Voteman]] video was made to get young Danish people to vote at the European parliament elections
* The ads for the Mexican beer ''Tecate'', [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMgW1d1YXYo which celebrate]] [[https://www.youtube.com/user/mxtecate stereotypical Mexican manliness tropes]] [[RuleOfFunny for kicks]].
* Yorkie chocolate bars in Britain. Originally introduced to appeal to adult men who thought chocolate bars were for kids, their early advertising was based around [[BigBadassRig tough truckers]]. In the early 2000s, they outright used "not for girls" as a tagline.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'': This trope has been passed down in the Armstrong line for ''generations''. [[PecFlex Perhaps frighteningly so]], if you're set up on a date with an Armstrong gal, since even the cute younger sister can effortlessly lift pianos with one hand.
* ''Manga/BoboboboBobobo'' is about a muscular guy with a huge, reality-warping afro who fights with '''''his nose hairs'''''. Couldn't be any manlier ([[WidgetSeries and weird]]) than this.
* ''Manga/MyBrideIsAMermaid''
** There're enough ArtShift homages to ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' as it is, but what takes the cake is when ''San'' pulls this off: sprouting a mustache and beard, eating a raw steak ("You shouldn't even mind eating this way if you are a man! A man should eat meat in the morning!"), telling the male lead and love rival to StayInTheKitchen ("You women walk three steps behind us men!"), and so forth.
** Lunar's father is... well... The Franchise/{{Terminator}}.
** San's father also qualifies, at least in appearance; He's a big, buff, {{Yakuza}} head, with giant scars all over his face.
** By the end of the series, [[FanNickname Na]]'''[[FanNickname GAR]]'''[[FanNickname sumi]].
* ''Manga/KamenNoMaidGuy'' has Kogarashi, the eponymous maid guy, who's so manly that his brain is USB compatible. If you can't communicate with a printer, you aren't a man.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''
** The Raikage, a mixture of the Kool-Aid Man, the Hulk, and a pro-wrestler poured into the mold of a giant ninja. The fact that he is frequently shirtless certainly doesn't hurt. Also his brother, Killer Bee, who not only fits all of the above, but also appears to be a refugee from the Wu Tang Clan. Killer Bee isn't his nickname, it's his actual name. The Raikage's is either Killer A or Killer E, depending on translation.
** Might Guy and Rock Lee.
* Elfman from ''Manga/FairyTail'' says anything awesome can only be attributed to being manly! Regardless of whether a person he's telling to be "Be a Man!" is male or female.
* Tomitake from ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' at times. To a milder extent, Keiichi, ''Ooishi and Irie''.
* ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'': Ozma is not an adult, '''''HE IS A MAN!'''''
* ''Manga/BakiTheGrappler''. Pick a male character, ''any'' male character. If you use a dirty trick to slice off his hand, he might just smile, crack a joke, and then punch you in the face ''with the bone in his stump!'' That's fairly typical, and not even going near the territory of a monster like Yujiro. If the idea of permanent crippling injury gives you pause, then you have ''no'' business being in the ring with these fighters.
* Black Star from ''Manga/SoulEater'' definitely, for he has [[http://www.mangareader.net/157-41902-13/soul-eater/chapter-68.html three]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/157-41902-14/soul-eater/chapter-68.html blades.]]
* The village leader from ''Anime/HareGuu'' is '''''manly''''' complete with ''manly'' chest hair...taken [[http://anime-max.com.ar/anime-wallpapers/slides/images/jungle-wa-itsumo-hale-nochi-guu-003.jpg to the extreme]]
* Whitebeard from ''Manga/OnePiece'': In a WorldOfBadass, he is acknowledged as the single most badass man there is. And he's [[CoolOldguy pretty old]], to boot. It says something when a world-wide government that rules over one-hundred nations and has the firepower raze entire islands is utterly terrified of him. Plus, I mean, [[http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz35/XxInabiUchihaxX/Other%20Img/6163_render_Whitebeard_arrives_by_G.png?t=1267568506 just look at him]]! [[spoiler:Sadly, he proved TooCoolToLive, but even then [[DiedStandingUp he didn't fall!]]]]
** Another example that isn't quite as strong, (we think), is [[CrazyAwesome Franky]] of the Straw Hat Pirates. He wears a speedo, he once led a mob, he looks like '''[[http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130225034035/onepiece/images/8/8c/Franky_Anime_Post_Timeskip_Infobox.png this,]]''' [[spoiler: he just recently fought a guy purely because of manliness,]] and so on and so forth.
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', especially Kamina. Notably, being RatedMForManly as a source of RealityWarper powers is literally the crux of the entire plot.
* ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' tiptoes the line between this and RatedMForManly. At times, stunts like Revy blowing up 6 pirate ships while jumping absurd distances come across as a parody of balls to the walls action films.
** Ironic when you consider that a large chunk of the badass manly action in this series is done by women.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* SAXTON HALE (in the trope's picture), whose company's motto is "We sell products and get in fights". He bears a suspicious resemblance to a poorly shaven bear, skydives through his office window for his morning commute, has a patch of chest hair in the shape of Australia, and claims that the breakfast steak is the most important steak of the day. See the [[http://www.teamfortress.com/war/saxtonhale/ comic]] for more manly info. He is also shirtless "for obvious reasons". In-universe, Australia is a hyper-advanced nation of macho man and women due to Australium having the ability to induce Testosterone Poisoning on people to the point that it makes women grow {{Badass Mustache}}s. It transformed the Engineer's grandfather from a soft-spoken scientist to a shirtless, rugged manly-man with a CarpetOfVirility shaped like Texas. Saxton Hale, however, doesn't ''need'' Australium. He's just that manly naturally.
* For those that regard Creator/FrankMiller's ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain'' and ''ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder'' as {{Stealth Parod|y}}ies of his earlier works, they certainly fit here. His earlier work like ''Comicbook/SinCity'' played the [[RatedMForManly excessive manliness straight]]. No stealth about Lance Blastoff's parody. He takes it out and slaps you round the face with it.
* There is an aside in ''Comicbook/JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac'' where two of Jhonen's characters meet two exaggerations of NinetiesAntiHero comic characters, one of whom is an absurdly muscle-bound heap named "Schlong". His power would appear to reside entirely in his powers of teeth-gritting and flexing. In fact, when he is x-rayed, his skeleton appears as a spindly splayed doodle floating inside a mountain of meat. He needs to be supported by training wheels to keep from tipping over.
* In ''Comicbook/VForVendetta'', Creator/AlanMoore decided he needed an in-universe Schwarzenneger-like incarnation of the ideals of the Party: He is Macho!!! He is Aryan!!! He is what every woman wants!!! He is STORM SAXON!!! Needless to say, V enjoys its airings utterly, as [[StupidJetpackHitler fascistic camp]] treats.
* SelfDemonstrating/{{Lobo}}, the Main Man, of course.
* The... erm... "protagonist" of the (in)famous ''{{ComicBook/Doom}}'' comic book. "'''WHO'S A MAN AND A HALF? I'M A MAN AND A HALF! A BERSERKER PACKIN' MAN AND A HALF!'''"
** The ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' mod "''VideoGame/BrutalDoom''" is an attempt to bring that interpretation of ''Doom'' into the game proper, with over-the-top gore, monster finishing moves that let you literally "rip and tear" weakened foes asunder, and the ability to provoke monsters by flipping them off and swearing at them. However with the increased challenge that it adds over the basic game, it can unironically feel RatedMForManly as well.
* The ''ComicBook/AstroCity'' villain Karnazon is a massive, muscle-bound man, a LongHairedPrettyBoy WalkingShirtlessScene with a ManlyChin. A {{Foil}} to the heroine Winged Victory, his goal is to defeat her and assert the inherent superiority of men over women.
-->"Accept the inevitable, as a woman should, and surrender!"
* To quote Dirk Anger of ''ComicBook/{{Nextwave}}''
--> "Every day i smoke two hundred cigarettes and one hundred cigars and drink a bottle of whiskey and three bottles of wine with dinner.
--> And dinner is meat. '''Raw meat.'''
--> The cook serves me an entire animal and i fight and tear off what i want and eat it and have the rest buried.
--> In '''New Jersey!''' For H.A.T.E!"

* In ''Webcomic/AlabasterTheDoomedSession'' (a Homestuck fancomic), Vamuin, the [[AntiHero main character]], is [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=236&p=31 introduced]] as a concentration of strength, epicness and virility. His pseudonym is righteousPornstar and he's surrounded with phallic imagery. It gets [[ParodySue extremely ridiculous]], [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=236&p=406 extremely quickly]].
* The stand-off between alpha troll Detritus and an enraged adult male rhinoceros in ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fic ''Fanfic/NatureStudies'' is explicitly described as this by a nearby (female) zoologist, who stands back to watch the fight from a professional viewpoint.
--> One was a creature which used sheer brute force and power to sweep away any inconvenient obstacles. The other was a very large pachyderm with a spike on its nose.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''. "No one's slick as Gaston; no one's quick as Gaston; no one's neck's as incredibly thick as Gaston's!" Did you say ''[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar neck?]]''... Well, he ''does'' use antlers in all of his decorating. And "every last inch of him is covered in hair." Check the eyebrow action when he says that. Ew.
* The lawn-mover that is "The TERRAFIRMINATOR" from ''WesternAnimation/GnomeoAndJuliet''. "'''''YOUR LAWN WILL BE AFRAID TO GROW! IT'S THE ULTIMATE WEAPON OF GRASS DESTRUCTION!'''''"
--> Here's a list of Warnings and Side Effects of The TERRAFIMINATOR:
** Terrafirminator will not inhibit grass from growing
** Not recommended for residential use
** Not recommended for commercial use either
** Do not use vehicle while sleeping
** Do not stick your fingers in tiller blades - duh
** Not recommended for children under 3
** Or 4
** For external use only
** After use, lawn may appear completely destroyed
** do not be alarmed - this is perfectly normal
---> Side effects of using the Terrafirminator may include:
** Dry mouth
** Heightened levels of testosterone
** Nausea
** Loss of hearing
** Blurred vision
** Ssslured speech
** Voices telling you to burn things
** Loss of bowel control
** Persistent feelings of awesomeness
** Tight hamstrings
** Megalomania
** In rare instances some people may explode when viewing the Terrafirminator
--->Maker of the Terrafirminator will not be held responsible for damages, injury, infidelity caused by the use of this product.
* ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'':
** The "I'll make a man out of you" song definitely qualifies. It would probably qualify as an AffectionateParody as well, given that the heroine of the story is a SweetPollyOliver.
--->''(Be a man!) You must be swift as a coursing river\\
(Be a man!) With all the force of a great typhoon\\
(Be a man!) With all the strength of a raging fire\\
Mysterious as the dark side of the moooooooon!''
** Mulan's hilariously overdone attempts to act macho also qualify.
* El Macho from ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe2'' is introduced with a montage of him [[GargleBlaster pouring himself alcohol from a bottle with "Poisonous" warning labels]], adding viper venom (directly from a live viper), eating the glass WITH the drink, nailing the cash to the counter with said viper, punching out the door (and doorframe) of the bar, stopping an armored truck with his bare hands, then carrying it away, and [[MachoMasochism eventually dying]] by [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill jumping into an active volcano along with a shark and 250 pounds of dynamite.]] They NeverFoundTheBody, just a pile of singed chest hair. What's even more ridiculous about his volcano-jumping death is that [[spoiler: he actually manages to somehow '''SURVIVE''']]. The scene might as well be a TropeCodifier for all who see it. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxXJ2XSMT6Q Behold... EL MACHO!]]
* Earl Devereaux from ''WesternAnimation/CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs''. So macho that the one time he allowed himself to cry, it gave a blueberry chest hair. The fact that he's voiced by Terry Crews doesn't hurt (and in the first movie, by Mr. T!).

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/{{Idiocracy}}'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ru6p5NLXxvY Brawndo]]. Just in case you hadn't lost faith in humanity yet, [[http://www.brawndo.com Brawndo is now manufactured and sold.]]
* In ''Film/{{Freaked}}'', we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2R9ysWYNGg this commercial]]
* Captain Gordon of ''Film/GodzillaFinalWars'' is so macho, he faced down Franchise/{{Godzilla}} ''personally,'' with a ''sword.''
* The theme song to ''Film/{{Orgazmo}}'': "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiXaT_1I-vw Now You're a MAN!]]"
* ''Film/TenInchHero'' mentions this by name, though it's used in reference not to extreme manliness, but rather disgusting male habits.
* ''Film/BlackDynamite'' parodies the excessively masculine heroes of blaxploitation films. When introduced, Black Dynamite seems to be penetrating three women at the same time.
* The stetson-clad Colonel Kilgore from ''Film/ApocalypseNow'' -- of the famous "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" speech -- shoots beyond manly into the realms of the impossible. He leads a helicopter assault to the tune of ''Ride of the Valkyries'' so that he can ''go surfing''.
* ''Film/FromDuskTillDawn'': A confrontation between Harvey Keitel, Fred Williamson, the great Creator/TomSavini, and George Clooney (!) against a room full of vampires. Featuring Danny Trejo and John Saxon. And Tom Savini sports a COCK-GUN!
* ''Film/ThreeAmigos'' pokes fun at all the machismo, especially in the BadGuyBar "Where did you get that pretty little gun?" (with disastrous results for the "manly" bar patrons) and Ned's duel with the German aviator (Jefe: "You wanna die with a MAAAAN's gun, not a little sissy gun like this.") In which Ned falls over trying to holster the MAAAAN's gun handed to him by Jefe. And [[spoiler: gets knocked back a couple dozen feet from the recoil when he shoots the German]].
* ''Film/{{Commando}}'' has a confrontation between ''Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger'' and Bill Duke (a large imposing man) in a hotel room, which they initiate by shouting insults at each other such as "You scared? You should be, because this Green Beret's going to beat your ass!" followed by "I eat Green Beret's for breakfast, and right now I'm very hungry!", etc. Creator/RaeDawnChong (a small slim actress) as Cindy exhibits great intelligence and wisdom by cowering in the corner while these two behemoths demolish not only the room they are in, but several rooms around them. The trope is invoked by her comments while this is happening:
-->'''Cindy:''' Can you believe this macho bull-shit?\\
'''Cindy:''' They feed these guys too much red meat!
* ''Film/{{Predator}}'' is automatically manly thanks to Arnie, but most of the rest of the cast are putting in the effort as well, particularly Wrestling/JesseVentura.
-->'''Blain:''' Ain't got time to bleed.
* ''Film/TheExpendables'' is built around a host of [=80s=], [=90s=] and modern action stars doing manly things. This could as well be called "Testosterone Poisoning: The Movie".
* The [[StealthParody intended point]] of Paul Verhoeven's ''Film/StarshipTroopers''. A lot of people [[MisaimedFandom missed the memo]].
* ''Film/ShootEmUp''. Shooting tons of bad guys is just [[RatedMForManly plain manly]]. So is having steamy hot sex with Creator/MonicaBellucci. Doing them both at the same time, however...
* In ''Film/LostInSpace'', Don West blows up the derelict ship they find, not wanting to leave "an enemy a base." John Robinson wanted to keep it to study, causing them to argue about military vs scientific aspects of the mission and who is in charge. Maureen warns them that if they don't stop "hosing the deck down with testosterone," she'd relieve both of them on medical reasons and take over the mission herself.
* {{Deconstructed}} in ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad''. [[BigBad Immortan Joe]] puts a heavy emphasis on hyper-masculinity in the running of his empire and the cult he's built around himself. This is shown to be harmful to ''everyone'', men and women alike. Women are treated essentially like livestock, valued only for their looks and fertility. Barring that, they are kept either out of the Citadel or used as milk farms. The men strong enough are brainwashed into a psychotic MartyrdomCulture obsessed with cars and [[BloodKnight battle]], willing to kill themselves "[[DyingMomentOfAwesome historically]]" in service to their GloriousLeader in the hopes that they will be resurrected in the WarriorHeaven of Valhalla. In the end, the only ones who benefit from this mindset are Immortan Joe himself and his fellow warlords.

* ''The Retrosexual Manual'' is all about this.
* Creator/DaveBarry:
** "Complete Guide to Guys".
--->'''Stimulus:''' Human mortality.\\
'''Response (Female):''' Religious faith.\\
'''Response (Male):''' The pyramids.\\
'''Response (Guy):''' Bungee-jumping.
** In another column, he mocks the ultra-manly trend in commercials by citing one where the '''MEN''' see a barge going out of control down a stream, and immediately get to work bringing it in with big hairy ropes, whereas a guy like a humor columnist would be secure enough to say "Don't worry, it's probably insured."
* ''Literature/TheAlphabetOfManliness''. "[[http://www.calendars.com/Satire/Year-of-Manliness-2010-Wall-Calendar/prod122463/?categoryId=cat00052 The Calendar of Manliness]]''."
* The Manly Handbook, by David Everitt and Harold Schechter.
* In the early '70s the ''Franchise/NationalLampoon'' did a dead-on parody of mid-century men's adventure magazines called "Real Balls", at the same time taking digs at "Silent Majority" conservatism with stories of infiltrating "beatnik hootenannies", fighting lewd sex-education teachers, and combating the "Krazed Kent State Kamikaze Kids".
* Bruce Fernstein's ''Real Men Don't Eat Quiche''. Most of the articles and pictures in this book originally appeared in ''Magazine/{{Playboy}}'', that's how manly it is.

* The {{Trope Namer|s}} is the ''Series/BabylonFive'' episode "A Voice in the Wilderness", in which something is discovered on the supposedly-abandoned planet below the station. After a bunch of aliens show up and give the protagonists a ten-hour give-it-to-us-or-else ultimatum, the captain of the visiting heavy cruiser Hyperion threatens them with a NINE-hour leave-the-system-or-else ultimatum.
--> '''Ivanova:''' Worst case of testosterone poisoning I've ever seen.
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': The Greatjon's masculinity is portrayed as over the top. Most notable is when he's {{Fingore}}'d by Grey Wind, where he immediately pledges support for Robb despite disagreeing with him earlier.
* ''Series/MythBusters'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-XbjFn3aqE&NR=1 sums it up]] in two words: sulfur hexafluoride. Adam can inhale it and sound like Satan:
-->'''Adam: And my voice gets really low, although somehow I'm still funny. It's scientific! HAHAHAHAHA!'''
* ''Series/HomeImprovement''. '''URR URR URR! [[TimTaylorTechnology MORE POWER!]]''' The uber-macho Tim is utterly incompetent seven times out of ten. He plays it up even more for his ShowWithinAShow.
* The Australian [[BlatantLies reality]] show ''Double The Fist''.
* ''Series/TheManShow'': It's right there on the name. Including such things as multiple scenes of girls bouncing slo-mo on trampolines with skimpy clothes and the set was an ultimate man-cave with exotic dancers.

* The entire network of Creator/SpikeTV runs on this trope.
** The show ''Series/OneThousandWaysToDie'', incidentally ran on [=SpikeTV=], references the Darwin Awards origin of this trope, for example, using an electrically stimulated cow heart [[ADateWithRosiePalms as a... uhm... yeah....]]

* The early 2000s NewZealand comedy variety show ''Back of the Y Masterpiece Television'' was loaded full of this.

* The metal band [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQF_DR_uDU4 Austrian Death Machine]] based on Arnold Schwarzenegger movies. Made ironic in that it's a side project of Tim Lambesis of Music/AsILayDying, a band that is similar musically but very much ''not'' this trope lyrically.

* Amounts of [[RatedMForManly testosterone-fuelled]] {{Narm}} and HoYay in '''Music/{{Manowar}}''' are so JustForFun/{{egregious}}, there's a band called Nanowar devoted to parodying them.

* "Men" by Martin Mull and Steve Martin
-->'' 'Cause men can sweat and men can stink and no one seems to care-o,\\
We'll throw the dishes in the sink and clog the drain with hair-o''
* "Road Hogs" by Stone Sour is a long, satirical look at the Great Southern All-American BadAssBiker image with Corey Taylor doing his best Zakk Wylde impression. It includes such lines as "''On the highway, I am thick as shit'' / ''It's just the seat is really killin' my 'roids''", "''June bugs on my face'' / ''Skeeters in my teeth'' / [extended coughing/spitting]" and a chorus consisting mainly of "Oh Yeah!" and "Hell Yeah!" shouted in a macho "Yea-uh!" style.
* {{Music/Sabaton}} are a Swedish PowerMetal band who's songs are mostly about the history of warfare and sung by a large and muscular BadassBaritone. While overall quite intelligent and varying in weight, they certainly get into the trope in some of their heaviest songs and when they take the WarIsGlorious tone.
* Music/WeirdAlYankovic's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLnapb-30hA "CNR"]], a tribute to Charles Nelson Reilly (as if he was Website/{{Chuck No|rrisFacts}}rris).[[note]]The joke is, for those who still don't know who Charles Nelson Reilly was, was that Charles Nelson Reilly was a very effete, CampGay [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HE7dsVJvJdo comedian who]] [[https://youtu.be/6KcozXnJ9wA?t=58s was most popular]] in TheSeventies.[[/note]]
-->''Charles Nelson Reilly won the Tour de France with\\
Two flat tires and a missin' chain\\
He trained a rattlesnake to do his laundry\\
I'm telling you the man was insane''
* Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone assign this status to Briann Boitano of all people, in their song "What Would Brian Boitano Do". The lyrics of the song chronicle his exploits, which include fighting grizzly bears in the Alps, beating up Kublai Khan, time traveling, breathing fire, rescuing princesses and wolfing down unpalatably spicy chicken wings.
* "Big Man with a Gun" by Music/NineInchNails is intended as a parody of the macho posturing and misogyny in GangstaRap amongst other things. Unfortunately this went straight over the heads of many listeners and Reznor was [[PoesLaw accused of many of the things he was parodying]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WchseC9aKTU Two Trucks]] by Music/LemonDemon plays this to an absurd degree, where the sight of two trucks having passionate sex is apparently ''so'' manly (and [[{{Eagleland}} American]]) that it causes any grown man who sees it to start weeping and involuntarily flexing their muscles, while fireworks and eagles appear in the sky.
* Normaal's "Vulgaris Magistralis", moreso when [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reOLeLX0Q9U covered by Heidevolk]]. With lyrics such as "I cook my food on an active volcano" and "I ride on a mammoth" (and a mastodon on Sundays).
* This is one of Music/{{Pantera}}'s biggest sources of both appeal and criticism. Most of their output with [[GrowingTheBeard Phil Anselmo on vocals]] is either this trope, {{Anvilicious}} attacks on people involved in government, church or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking the music industry]], or self-loathing {{Angst}}.
* Music/{{Motorhead}}'s music has enough Testosterone to Poison the entire country of England.
* Deconstructed in Music/OingoBoingo's "Tough as Nails". The protagonist, "Mr. Macho", [[IndulgentFantasySegue constantly daydreams]] about being a ladykilling action hero as an escape from his depressing life.
* Music/{{Soundgarden}}, defined by [[http://www.markprindle.com Mark Prindle]] as "the most macho band of the Seattle grunge revolution" were particularly famous for putting their own [[SophisticatedAsHell cerebral]] spin on this trope, defining the popular grunge aesthetic in the process. As it would turn out, a few of their songs took a satirical stance—the most well-known example being "Big Dumb Sex".
* Explained by Lil'Jon to be the point of "Turn Down for What". While looking like [[WildTeenParty two college students going wild]] in their apartment, one of them, a man, appears to be smashing a number of things against his groin, and shouting into a phone so hard it makes someone on the other end [[NightmareFuel abruptly die. ]]

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Get a load of these lyrics. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bhLK6XPKCs Would you believe that they came from]] Wrestling/ExoticAdrianStreet?
-->''I can tear a telephone directory in two\\
Bending iron bars is something else that I can do\\
I always pick my teeth with the nearest billiard cue\\
So imagine what I could do to you...''
* In the '90s, the WWF had [[Wrestling/WilliamRegal Steven Regal:]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpPsbkHzrok A Real Man's Man!]] His debut was preceded with vignettes showing him doing MANLY things like chopping down trees, shaving with a hatchet and squeezing orange juice with his bare hands, while a very excited British man gave a running commentary about just how manly he was!
* [=SeXXXy=] Eddie proved in Wrestling/{{CZW}} that he was ''so'' manly he could down his opponents with his penis. Similarly Krotch of All American Wrestling has a slingshot move that can only be described as "flying dick to the face".
** Taken [[UpToEleven up to 33]] with their deathmatches. [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ps0NJ2Sq8D4 As covered by Vice Magazine,]] the whole thing is a [[NauseaFuel controversial,]] [[{{Main/Gorn}} gory]] sideshow where ''everybody'' bleeds. [[spoiler: Highlights include wrestlers smashing each other with long lightbulbs, being thrown off of scaffolds to the unpadded ground, and the "Home Run Derby" match, where a wrestler '''gets a large nut stuck in their head.''']]
* Wrestling/RingOfHonor former champion and WWE star [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]] ''loves'' to use this, as seen in the [[http://pizzabodyslam.blogspot.com/2010/03/cataloging-daniel-bryan-manliness-meter.html Daniel Bryan Manliness Meter]], and many of his ROH promos:
-->"I'm getting sick and tired of all these people giving me ''crap'' about what color my skin is. Yeah, I'm ''pale'' -- what's the big deal?... It doesn't matter what color my skin is, because I'm [[WorldsStrongestMan the best wrestler in the world]]! I beat Homicide, I beat everybody that Ring of Honor has put in front of me! And d'you know what? ''THAT'' is what makes me a ''MAN!'' And do you know what's ''un''manly? All these idiots talking about my skin color, going and sitting in front of a bunch of fluorescent lights with goggles and a Speedo!"
::And then he became the mentor for "Mantastic" Derrick Batemann, who, in Bryan's words, is "manly, so manly, OH SO manly!"
* Wrestling/DramaticDreamTeam mainstay Danshiko Dino is one of the most extreme exoticos. His tactics rob all but the hardest men of their masculinity unless they are also gay or bi. Until Wrestling/JoeyRyan, who proved so manly he overpowered Dino with nothing but his penis when Dino attacked it.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' is built on this to a large degree, but the Space Wolves especially fit. They're super soldiers / space Vikings who fight all sorts of daemons and xenos, with chainswords and bolters, ride giant wolves bigger than horses, and eat truck loads of meat and gallons of ale for dinner.
** And while not stated outright, it's strongly implied that they're quite possibly the only Space Marine chapter with an active sex drive.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Hol}}'' has Frank, the Were-Guy, who's so manly every full moon he can only turn into something even more manly.

* David Alden's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AVTlkFHI3g production]] of Francesco Cavalli's baroque opera ''Ercole Amante'' ("Hercules in love") had [[LargeHam the eponymous hero]] take on his mythical-badass persona by putting on a rubber muscle suit onstage. The result fell [[http://www.omm.de/veranstaltungen/musiktheater20082009/bilder/AMS-ercole-amante2.jpg somewhere between a life-size action figure, Hulk Hogan and Conan the Barbarian]]. [[UpToEleven On eight-inch platform boots]].

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}''
** TORGUE: guns are about EXPLOSIONS and MACHISMO and ENGINES and EXPLOSIONS and LOUD NOISES and EXPLOSIONS. You know what sucks? SUBTLETY. You know what’s awesome? NOTSUBTLETY. And also EXPLOSIONS. TORGUE! Bastard Guns for Bastard People!
** And then there's Mr. Torgue himself, a Wrestling/RandySavage lookalike who is essentially the Saxton Hale of the setting. Despite his image however, [[HiddenDepths he's actually a fairly nice guy who believes that there's nothing more badass than chivalry]]. His definition of manliness [[CharacterDevelopment develops over time]], but he remains this trope nonetheless. His full name, [[spoiler:[[WhoNamesTheirKidDude Mr. Torgue]] [[AwesomeMcCoolname High-Five Flexington]]]], just further shows his preposterous manliness.
** If you wonder where he got it from, it turns out that Mr. Torgue's ''grandmother'' has it just as bad. By her own account, she has suplexed a creature called "Blowhole the Apocalypse", and she looks [[HeadSwap disturbingly like]] her muscle-bound grandson.
** Speaking of Torgue, what about the locale of his ultimate tournament of awesome? Otherwise known as: "'''The Badass Crater Of BADASSITUDE!!!'''"
** Krieg the Psycho sums himself up in one sentence:
--->'''Krieg''': '''MY PECS HAVE PECS!'''
** Piston, the BigBad of the same DLC that introduced Mr. Torgue, continually taunts you with proclamations of his own manliness and badassitude, such as deriding you for "only" having two pecs, while he has thirteen. That's right, not only does he have more than two, he has an ''odd number'' of them. Although, since he does have cybernetic enhancements, such a thing might be possible. [[spoiler:He's also a coward and a cheater who's all talk, so he's probably just making it up.]]
* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'', more specifically adventurer mode. While it is not necessarily so, due to GoodBadBugs, you can do absurdly manly and awesome stuff like wrestling bears to the ground ''while naked '' and covered with blood, strangling them with your bare hands, and then use the corpse as a bludgeon to kill more bears. Or even throw dead bears at other bears and KILL them with it!
** Why stop with bears? Do the same with dragons or rocs or other giant creatures!
** Healing potions are for pansies! You're bleeding heavily due to that bear encounter? Wait it off!
** Legendary Wrestlers in earlier versions of the game were able to punch the horse out from under a charging knight or pick up and fling goblins all the way across the map into the side of a mountain, where they'd hit so hard you could see the exploded remains of their bodies littering the valley below.
* ''VideoGame/RobotDinosaursThatShootBeamsWhenTheyRoar''. It's '''exactly''' what it says on the tin.
* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. Out of the four women in the game, two are [[ICallItVera guns]], one is a sadistic voice-in-the-sky, and one only appears in supplementary canon. Particularly full of preposterone:
** The Soldier. Proof? [[http://teamfortress.com/post.php?id=2663 Here]], [[http://teamfortress.com/post.php?id=2562 here]], and [[http://teamfortress.com/soldier.htm here.]]
** You can't mention ''Team Fortress 2'' in TestosteronePoisoning without also mentioning '''SAXTON HAAAALE!''' (also mentioned in the comic book entry and portrayed in the trope image) Particularly, the ''Vs. Saxton Hale'' GameMod - where one player plays as Hale himself and not only has incredible amounts of health, but also capable of leaping tall buildings in a single bound, [[OneHitKill one-hit KOs]] the opposing characters, and has a stun yell so manly it not only stuns other players, ''but sentries as well''.
** The Sniper (and his parents) become notable for being the only Australians in the entire [=TF2=] 'verse who ''[[AvertedTrope don't]]'' have this trope, due to the 'verse's resident Unobtainium. It is later revealed that [[spoiler:Sniper is actually a New Zealander rather than an Australian.]]
** Afforementioned substance is Australium, and being near it gives people ''literal'' TestosteronePoisoning. It lowers their level of Common sense, while at the same time, making them stronger, smarter, hairier, and making them develop a taste for Beer.
* This constitutes a fair portion of Joachim's character in ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts: Covenant''. Given that HoYay is another substantial portion (he ''is'' a professional wrestler), HilarityEnsues.
* ''VideoGame/MadWorld'''s [[SociopathicHero announcers]] are constantly talking about manliness, when not making hilariously terrible puns about the ruthless slaughter Jack is committing.
* The [[TheAhnold Jack Howitzer]] commercials from ''Radio/GTARadio'' in the ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' series.
* [[http://www.scribd.com/doc/11590030/King-Leoric-the-Skeleton-King This]] guide to the ''VideoGame/DefenseOfTheAncients'' incarnation of [[VideoGame/{{Diablo}} King Leoric, the Skeleton King]] who is the manliest hero in DotA that does not have testicles.
* Need we mention the ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' {{Heel}} Super Macho Man? [[MemeticMutation RELEASE THE BOGUS!]] SUPEEEER! MACHOOO! MAAAAAN!!
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'': "Gaze upon my physique, and be awed! MANLY MUSK!"
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7j-1M9hwGXM Muscle March]]''. You need '''LOTS''' of testosterone to play a game featuring spandex-clad bodybuilders pursuing a protein-shake thief running through walls ACROSS TIME AND SPACE!
* In a minigame from ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'' you can have Kirby '''''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lxNNlQYttU punch a planet in half.]]''''' [[RealMenWearPink Real men don't just wear pink]], [[BadassAdorable real men ARE pink!]]
* ''[[http://dudebro.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page Dudebro 2]]'', the {{Defictionalization}} of a NeoGAF meme, is intended as a parody of video games that fall under this trope. The voice of VideoGame/DukeNukem is even cast as the lead!
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'': You can seriously consider Jecht's portrayal to be tongue-in-cheek. Every scene seems to emphasise his incredible physique and gruff voice. He uses a giant anchor-esque sword as a weapon. ''VideoGame/{{Dissidia|FinalFantasy}}'' only catalysed it.
* ''VideoGame/{{Bulletstorm}}'' runs on this. The initial cast are horrifyingly detestable hyper-macho {{Jerkass}}es... and most of them die horribly despite it -- only the main character and the one character from the starting set who ''wasn't'' like that actually survive past the first half hour. The over-the-top macho nonsense and parodically intense violence only continue from there.
* Two Words: ''VideoGame/DukeNukem''
* ''VideoGame/TheFirstFunkyFighter'' lets you play as an uber-manly man (ala Kenshiro!) fighting crocodiles and sharks with bare fists and ultra violence to save a feminine woman.
* The Adventure Core from ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}''. Played for (extra) laughs because it's a small round robot.
* Bang Shishigami, from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'', is "the man who fights for LOVE AND JUSTICE!" who [[WrongGenreSavvy thinks he's a shonen hero]] and thinks that everyone is either his young apprentice or a villain. One of his super moves is a literal ThemeMusicPowerUp, where an over-the-top metal song chronicles his manliness.
* From ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'', [[ConspiracyTheorist Kenji]] isn't particularly masculine-looking. It's his ''brain'' that's been poisoned. [[MemeticMutation Manly picnic,]] anyone?
** And we can't forget Shizune's dad Jigoro, either. Never mind the BadassBeard, he carries a FREAKING KATANA everywhere, even ON SCHOOL GROUNDS! It's a pity he and Kenji never meet, and he's a jerk.
* Reinhardt from ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' of course: "JOIN ME IN GLORY!" or "We shall prove ourselves in glorious combat!"
* The Massif Bros. in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam'' fall squarely under this trope. They're obsessed with weight lifting and muscle building to the point of parody, compare everyone to beef and various other types of meat and do such over the top stuff as trying to break a rock ten times bigger than they are with a jump punch and jumping off a cliff to progress during their mountain climbing tour. And happen to be LargeHam {{Husky Russkie}}s who shout every sentence they speak.
** Mt. Pajamaja, where the Massif Bros serve as tour guides, is full of statues commemorating various "legendary" bodybuilders in this vein.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fandom brings us "Mannosuke", a super-muscular and manly form of Rinnosuke Morichika, as demonstrated [[http://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=303234 here]] and [[http://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=198990 here.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Broforce}}'' revels in this, picking up pastiches of action movie characters across the decades and pitting them against terrorists on terrain [[EverythingBreaks that breaks and collapses with virtually every pull of the trigger]].
* Cole's legendary hunter of a father in ''VideoGame/CabelasDangerousHunts 2011'' is like some kind of caricature of rugged outdoorsy manliness, with his huge Santa Claus beard and intimidating facial scars, never showing affection for his kids outside of constant chastising, belittling his wife with her shopping malls and tofu, and when Cole shoots his first elk, he immediately has him cut out its heart and ''eat it.''
* Sven the Rogueknight in ''VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}'', he is here to ''pump you up!''. If he lets out a War Cry, you get pumped up to run faster and withstand more attacks. And when he activates God's Strength, he ''gets pumped up'', dealing a crap ton of extra damages in every of his attacks. And if he's carrying an Aghanim's Scepter while doing so, you also get pumped up to whack the enemies harder by just merely standing near Sven.
* ''VideoGame/FarCry3BloodDragon'', a gleeful homage to corny 80s action flicks, is exactly as over-the-top as you'd expect a game called "Blood Dragon" to be, with the protagonist, a OneManArmy cyborg of incredible proportions, constantly firing off SoBadItsGood one-liners.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'':
** Has a character who constantly talked in body-building clichés. And was so muscular that his sixpack could deflect bullets and he'd developed an ''organic jetpack''.
** Gordito, while not generally an example, 'grew a mustache though sheer force of will'. [[UpToEleven At twelve]].
** Speaking of mustaches, Dan revealing his mustache 'convinced an entire ninja clan to follow him'.
** Also, Doc himself on occasion:
---> Doc, while flicking off a main street with both hands: "Oh, forget it. You know what? It is at you now. I JUST SURFED A ROBO DRACULA FROM THE MOON SO Y'ALLS CAN JUST TAKE IT!"
* ''Webcomic/{{Girly}}'':
** Also, a self-parody entitled [[http://girlyyy.com/go/manly-v2 '''MANLY'''.]]
* ''Webcomic/ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings'', one of the honorable mentions in the Escapist's webcomics contest, is built around parodying macho video game character culture.
** It's got an ''enforced'' example in Tank: he was literally engineered,wired, and pumped with aggro juice by the military to see how aggressive and dysfunctional they could make a SuperSoldier before he causes more harm to his team than his enemies. His army family managed to jailbreak the chassis so the military couldn't flip the switch to make him a berserker without warning, but it still leaves him with serious hangups and there are times where he cranks up the aggro juice and takes his insecurities out on [[spoiler: his ex-boyfriend]] Commander Badass.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''
** [[NobleBigot Equius Zahhak]] loves being [[SuperStrength STRONG]], [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength is constantly impeded from doing normal things by his sheer strength]], wears a muscle-exposing tanktop, goes through the game of Sgrub [[GoodOldFisticuffs completely unarmed]], and has only one completely safe outlet for his aggression: ''beating the shit out of killer robots in cage matches.''
** The [[http://homestuck.bandcamp.com/album/strife cover of the STRIFE! album]]. Just '''''look''''' at it.
* ''Webcomic/HyperboleAndAHalf'' has [[http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2010/04/how-to-make-showering-awesome-again.html Sueeve -- for MEN]]:\\

-->I went from being of flab to being of pure muscle.\\

* Manly Man, the manliest man alive. From ''Webcomic/NSFWComix''.
-->''In this day and age of political correctness (read: pussies), masculinity is a confusing and dangerous issue. Heterosexual men and boys of today find themselves in need of a role model who isn't a pussy, and that role model is the male chauvinist whom male chauvinist pigs wish they were: Manly Man. Manly Man once took on Creator/ChuckNorris and Maddox in a fight and won by staring at them until they turned gay and made out with each other, this distraction allowing Manly to punch them into orbit, where they still are to this day.''
* WebComic/RockManlyfist master of Space Karate and 80's action Machismo incarnate. Having been in suspended animation since the 80's, he is awoken by the magic words "No Retreat No Surrender" and proceeds to cut a bloody swath through hordes of Ninjas, Neo-Vikings, North Koreans, Shaolin Satanists and anyone else foolish enough to oppose him. All to the music of Loverboy. Oh, and he also needs to have sex every 24 hours or his head will explode. It's one of the downsides of Space Karate.
* In ''Webcomic/ScaryGoRound'', after [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep The Boy]] has sex for the first time, he [[ItMakesSenseInContext converts a caravan into a boat overnight]], in [[http://scarygoround.com/sgr/ar.php?date=20060825 a very manly fashion]]. But he uses up all his manliness in the process, and subsequently just feels like "poking things listlessly with a stick."
* This ''Webcomic/ThreePanelSoul'' [[http://threepanelsoul.com/2011/11/23/on-market-segments/ strip]] manages to spoof this and Dr. Pepper 10 at the same time.
* In ''Webcomic/TwoGuysAndGuy'':
** [[http://www.twogag.com/archives/125 Wayne]] tries to invoke RatedMForManly with his new car, but instead comes off as if he's CompensatingForSomething.
** Guy, in a rare female example, [[http://www.twogag.com/archives/2917 manages to rub her manliness in Wayne's face]].
* When buying fireworks for the Fourth of July, Fox of ''Webcomic/{{Curtailed}}'' prefers to shop in the "[[http://curtailedcomic.com/comic/129-murica/ Banned in Most States]]" section.
* ''Webcomic/ExistentialComics'': How Aristotle is portrayed. The author admits that it has very little to do with his philosophy, he just thinks its funny.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': subverted. On two different occasions, characters who were [[GenderBender transforming from female to male]] became suddenly aggressive, seeming due to the transformation. In the first case, it later came to light that Tedd's outburst it was due to [[spoiler: him being emotionally manipulated by Magus to make him transform Elliot]]. In the second, Susan's assertiveness only ''seemed'' uncharacteristic to those who didn't know her very well; Sarah, who was more familiar with her, said it was just Susan being Susan, it's just that she usually keeps a tighter leash on herself in public.
* It happened literally once in ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}''. Artax was brewing some potions when an explosion caused him to inhale a cloud of Storm Giant testosterone-laden steam. This caused him to decide that he, Yeagar, and Nodwick need to do some manly bonding by going camping with no equipment, which rapidly turned into a parody of ''Film/TheBlairWitchProject''.

* Captain Hammer from ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'', [[spoiler:Until he feels pain for the first time.]]
* Website/ChuckNorrisFacts is all about this trope with playing up Creator/ChuckNorris as a MemeticBadass. And also heavily robbing from [[Series/SaturdayNightLive Bill Brasky]].
* In Russia the city of Chelabinsk is supposed to be an entire town of {{Memetic Badass}}es.

* Much of the humour of ''Website/{{Cracked}}.com''. And specifically, WebVideo/AgentsOfCracked: "GASP! The Chief?"
** [[http://www.cracked.com/article_14794_horse-cock-life-in-27-inches.html This article]], titled [[GagPenis "Horse Cock: A Life in 27 Inches"]]. According to the author, he's speaking out against accusations against him, those accusations being that he doesn't have a 27-in. horse cock. He says normally he'd just whip it out, [[BlatantLies but he had 8 inches bitten off by a wolverine that came out of Ashlee Simpsons' vagina after some foreplay (because y'know, that's a thing that happens apparently)]] ''[[BlatantLies and]]'' [[BlatantLies then he went into a naked fight against an Iranian president using butterfly knives (because... because Iranian tradation(?))]].
** [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/a-guide-to-the-modern-moustache/ 10 Mustache Styles That Must Be Stopped]] has a [[SmallNameBigEgo "What You Think You'd Look Like vs. What You Actually Look Like"]] example. The descriptions of what you'd think you'd look like with it are played up as the most badass thing ever. Even the pencil thin mustache has one about looking like an AgentPeacock PrettyBoy SexGod who [[EvenTheGuysWantHim even guys want]]. But when you get to the descriptions of what they actually look like on you, well, ... that's a different story.

* "MEAT PUNCH!!!" from Much Music's "We Are Experiencing Technical Difficulties." The "MEAT PUNCH!!!" is made out of "beef, chicken, pork, lamb, goat, goose, duck, beef, moose, horse, monkey, hotdog, and donkey." No, that was not a typo; there is a double dose of beef. It is said that only one bite will leave you full, it tastes like the zoo, and that you cannot be considered a man if you don't eat it. You can see it [[http://vimeo.com/2561849 here]].

** Yahtzee, in his ''Bound in Blood: Call of Juarez'' video, gives us the Ben Croshaw "Hats" Scale of Manliness, whereby a man's manliness is judged by the [[NiceHat size of his hat]]. Thus, to continue the example, Ray and Thomas both have large hats, so they can "eat danger and shit bullets", while Wee-um does not possess a hat at all, reducing him to eating Weetabix and shitting healthily.
** He also uses masculinity as one of the justifications for why he doesn't play RealTimeStrategy games or {{JRPG}}s, stating after his review of ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' that he now must play an FPS or else his body will absorb his testicles.

* A Brazilian Website/{{Twitter}}, [[http://twitter.com/clubedomacho Clube do Macho]] ("Macho Club"). Common themes include anti-Feminism (divided into "StayInTheKitchen" and "go to bed"), complaints that everything is done by queers and saying what a true man does instead, sexist jokes and/or comments (complete with terrible flirts, such as "I got a stick, you've got a hole, let's go home and play snooker!"), and showcasing hot girls.

Parodied with [[http://cheezburger.com/6894276096 Magikarp]]. Hilariously, his oft-considered badass [[MagikarpPower evolution]] is given as its one flaw in this poster.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZAMl0VWAZ8 Intensive Gastony Unity]]. One part [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Gaston]], one part [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic ponies]], three part masculinity.
* While reviewing ''Comicbook/SupermanAtEarthsEnd'', [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] advised viewers to settle all arguments by screaming, "I AM A MAN!!!" and punching the offending person in the gut in imitation of a panel from the comic. This became subject to MemeticMutation.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxtRGEVsSOc ARE YOU MAN ENOUGH FOR ALL THIS FUCKIN' TEA???]]
* The first twenty or so episodes had WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic (now a SissyVillain who'll readily admit going for manicures) trying to embody all the worst traits of stereotypical masculinity. This died at the ''Series/SesameStreet'' [[LoveRedeems review]].
** Inverted by the T-Rex in his review of ''Film/JurassicPark'', who indulges in Estrogen Poisoning instead. Nostalgia Critic translates her roars with such captions as "Creator/ChuckNorris is my butt plug", "tanks are my crunch berries", and "my ovaries are chainsaws".
** Played with in regards to Devil Boner. He's loud, extreme, overcompensatingly macho, wears leather and his hair is like electric shock... but he also wears {{guyliner}}, is a feminist ally and a good boyfriend, and is perfectly okay with trans/non-binary people.
* Despite being the {{Trope Namer|s}} for RatedMForManly, the ''Videogame/CounterStrike'': [[http://youtu.be/mB6fq9Aadwk?t=2m2s Extreme Gore Edition]] mock-commercial is clearly PlayedForLaughs.

* AFT Marine from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=VZ2fUJfJDTg Action Figure Therapy]]...so much. Some of his more carpet-chested quotes include:
** "If I'm standin' on it, it's America!"
** "Some people are saying we should register our guns...why? Because they're deadly weapons? In that case, I should register my coffee table too, because I'm a US Marine, and I can sure kill you with that too."
** "When I was born, the first words out of my mouth were 'God bless America'...my second words were 'GO FUCK YOURSELF!'"
** Any NUMBER of quotes involving his sexual escapades with women.
* [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/153317/the-manliest-story-ever-conceived The Manliest Story Ever Conceived]] lives up to it's name, while at the same time being a MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fanfic.
* WebVideo/FiveSecondFilms brings us [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1JT7tcKfOw GROWN MEN ARE TALKING!]]
* Naturally, ''Mary Sue Problems'' has a {{Parody S|ue}}tu example.
--> '''[[http://marysueproblems.tumblr.com/post/40569184045 Gary Stu Problem #56]]''': You see this little scar under my eye? It's from this time I had my face mauled by a bear when I was five. [[BadassBoast And if you think that's bad, wait until you hear what happened to the bear]]!
* ''Epic Rap Battle of Manliness'' by Rhett & Link is exactly what it says. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EzDRpkfaO4 "I DIDN'T GO THROUGH PUBERTY; PUBERTY WENT THROUGH ME!"]]
* Brody Foxx, the narrator in ''WebAnimation/YoMama''.
* The ''WebAnimation/{{Batmetal}}'' series. It's Batman singing DeathMetal...ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin plus more. Features such ridiculous displays of manliness such as Batman beating people up with his scrotum. Really, just watch it, is has to be seen to be believed.
* Animation Domination High-Def's [[Creator/MichaelBay Michael Bay's]] X series is pretty much ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, Michael Bay's take on the last series you expect to recieve the Bay treatment.
** The ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]]'' sketch is essentially a parody of the fandom (and hatedom's) desire to see [[UselessProtagonist Shinji]] [[TheScrappy Ikari]] [[GrewASpine grow a spine]] and [[WhatMeasureIsANonBadass be more badass]] (i.e. RatedMForManly). So what do they do? Turn him from a wimp with somewhat justifiable angst ([[AngstDissonance depending on who you ask anyway]]) to a JerkStu that oozes this.
** WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead starts out as this[[spoiler:...but later revert to their canon selves much to the dismay of WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}....except with rocket launchers.]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Played with (with a touch of ThisLoserIsYou) in ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''. To wit: Ron discovers his bar mitzvah is unsigned, meaning he's not A Man. A special ring that turns him into a tower of muscles helps to compensate, though it's still Kim and Shego doing the [[SheFu ass-kicking]].
* ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' had it in an episode Chicken, Flem and Earl go after Sergeant Weenie Arms and follow his training. Among other things, they shave with smooth rocks and chop trees down ''with their faces''. The following day, they wake up all buffed up... only for Sergeant Weenie Arms to take them to play dolls with Cow ("[[RealMenWearPink Real weenie marines aren't afraid to play with sissy dolls!]]").
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRippingFriends'' is made of this trope. Not only are the four superhero protagonists absurdly masculine, but so is their mother!
* Sol Butcher from ''WesternAnimation/SonsOfButcher''. Especially when he goes hunting.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' had exactly two episodes about sexism in its entire run. One was about {{Straw Feminis|t}}m, and the other was about this trope. Once all the male super heroes of Earth have denied the Girls membership in their club (for the obvious reason why, see Edmund Spenser's theory in ''Literature/TheFaerieQueene''), a ridiculously muscularly-drawn alien shapeshifting dragster appears, who introduces himself as "Breaker of men! Taker of worlds! So step forth and bring thy manhood against mine own, and let us see who has the upper hand upon the measuring stick!" More information can be found [[Radar/ThePowerpuffGirls here]].
** Also, we can't forget about... '''MAJOR MAN!!!''' [[spoiler:(who is a fraud and a DirtyCoward).]]
** [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016 The 2016 reboot]] has the villain Manboy, a burly lumberjack-type figure who is also TheNapoleon.
* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndSteveTheHappiestGayCoupleInAllTheWorld'' delivered a NerdsAreSexy GayAesop by having poor Rick be forced to drive the "Monsterbator", a comically oversized monster truck that runs on pure testosterone instead of gasoline.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'': Jorgen von Strangle. Originally, he was just a DrillSergeantNasty, but has since been {{flanderiz|ation}}ed (like everyone else in the show) into an insanely over-the-top caricature of manliness who feels a psychological need to perform death-defying stunts that would kill a mere mortal every second of every day. He apparently doesn't sleep.
* On ''Series/TheRedGreenShow'', Ranger Gord, who is slender and lanky, has a cartoon segment in which he is portrayed as having an astoundingly muscular physique, so much so that when he bends an arm or even a finger, there is a metallic squeaking sound.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Shows up occasionally as part of Rainier Wolfcastle's shtick. Also, Duff Man.
* The ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' episode "Death Punchies".
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'': In the season 2 Brâkmarian Gobbowl arc, there is a magic potion which can turn nerdy guys ([[GenderBender and females]]) into macho men. It doesn't just gender-bend the females drinking it; it turns them into tall, hunky, hairy, overly-muscular specimen of manliness.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' episode "The Mustache", Gumball and Darwin [[spoiler: eat their dad's muscle-growth supplements]], which causes them to go through puberty at school. [[spoiler: Anais also mistook the health food for cereal]].
* Self-help guru Iron Will from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is hilariously macho.
** Same can be said for Bulk Biceps (whom the fans originally dubbed "Roid Rage" or - most popularly - [[FluffyTheTerrible Snowflake]]). Originally a gag pony from "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E22HurricaneFluttershy Hurricane Fluttershy]]" with his enormous muscles and [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything minuscule wings]], he got another appearance in Season 3, then a more substantial role in Season 4's "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E10RainbowFalls Rainbow Falls]]". He's always kept his overeager demeanor, though.
--->'''[[BigYes YEAH!!!]]'''
* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' has the Manotaurs, a group of incredibly macho minotaurs that give Dipper some lessons in manliness.
-->'''Manotaur''': Not ''man'' enough? I have ''three'' Y chromosomes, ''six'' Adam's apples, pecs on my abs, and ''fists'' for nipples!
** Another Gravity Falls example: "Manly Dan" Corduroy, Wendy's lumberjack dad. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLDslTdbFGQ If his name and occupation isn't convincing, just watch how he fishes. ]]
* ''WesternAnimation/YinYangYo'' villain the Manotaur had basically the same joke, plus the fact that as the only even half-human character on the show, he was also the only one with five-fingered hands.
* In ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', Joe Swanson sometimes swings into this but other times plays it straight. Incidentally another Creator/PatrickWarburton-voiced character (''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''' Brock Samson) also gets used both ways.
** Also spoofed in an episode where Peter flips the channel to Spike TV, which proved it's manliness with things men like by including the sounds of gunshots, [[ChainsawGood a chainsaw revving loudly]], speeding cars and [[TheImmodestOrgasm a woman moaning suggestively.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/KorgothOfBarbaria'' is a parody of ''WesternAnimation/ThundarrTheBarbarian'', with all the sanity taken out and replaced with gore and a bit of parody sex.
* The titular character from ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo''; despite his hyper-macho muscles, attitude and voice, he's constantly ridiculed and a huge ButtMonkey, [[{{Deconstruction}} showcasing how someone who matches this trope would be treated in real life]].
* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' hints at a show the main cast is fond of. The show looks like an A-Team pastiche that is this trope, with guns, beheadings, explosions, and more. It's title? ''Ball Fondlers''. The [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/rickandmorty/images/9/93/Ball_fondlers.png/revision/latest?cb=20150903112251 image]] says it all.
