Always Male
Only men may wear a Carpet of Virility.

Oh, poppycock! Female bandits? Whatever next? Rubbish!
Prince John, Disney's Robin Hood

Much like roles that are Always Female, there are some roles largely designated to males. This, however, is an oft-shrinking list, as the easiest way to subvert roles like these is, naturally, to make them female. In some cases, however, this may not work, particularly for those involving love, sex or facial hair. Those tropes, you can expect to see on this list for a long time. Many of these will still have Distaff Counterpart roles. This list would have been much larger had we been around fifty years ago.

If a trope that's still always male is applied to a female anyway, that's a Gender-Inverted Trope (a.k.a. "rare female example").
