[[caption-width-right:350:[-The great thing about this example is that you don't ''need'' the sound. You can just hear it, can't you?-][[note]]And, that aside, ''[[JustifiedTrope you'd]]'' [[JustifiedTrope be screaming like them too if a]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext giant stone jaguar]] was barreling down ''your'' way.[[/note]] ]]

->'''Rose:''' They're rats! Dozens of rats, vacuum-packed rats.\\
'''The Doctor:''' And you decided to scream.\\
'''Mickey:''' It took me by surprise!\\
'''The Doctor:''' Like a little girl?\\
'''Mickey:''' It was dark, I was covered in rats!\\
'''The Doctor:''' Nine, maybe ten years old. I'm seeing pigtails, frilly skirt...

As a tough masculine fighter, you never cry, never wince at a hit, and talk in a [[BadassBaritone manly baritone]]. But it's amazing how a GroinAttack, [[AfraidOfNeedles little needle]], or [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes garter snake]] can make your voice rise four octaves into a three-year-old's scream. It seems inherently funny to see this grown man emit a girly scream. This trope is usually played for laughs, as it is hard to take the image of a man who Screams Like A Little Girl seriously. This is sometimes associated with a CampGay or the NonActionGuy character.

Comedy-based logic dictates that the more butch the guy is, or the more he runs his mouth about being tough, or the lesser the actual danger is, the funnier it is when he screams like a girl.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUXElznzuVU&page=1 This]] commercial for Capital One's "No Hassle Rewards" program. After being told "no" one too many times by an operator played by Creator/DavidSpade when trying to redeem his credit card miles, a guy says that he's "coming to find" him. Turns out he's on a cell phone and is arriving in the office as the conversation is happening, so the operator played by Spade replies "Ooh, I'm shaking in my bright yellow shirt," making the guy think that he's some other timid guy in the office who just happens to have stepped out of his cubicle for a stretch at the moment. At that, the annoyed customer rushes the timid guy, who gives the most ridiculous girly scream.
-->'''Customer''': You! Yer goin' down!
-->'''Yellow-Shirt Guy''': (''running away'') Ahhhh-ah-ah-ah! ... ... I should have worked at Capital One! (''whispers'') [[CatchPhrase What's in your wallet?]] (''spots customer'') [[IWantMyMommy Mommy]]!

After the Cowboys fan finishes his taunt, he gives off a high pitched scream as Strahan charges him.

** Kaito gets one as well in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tOwg6CPrHg Kidnapping Elder Brother]]. [[BlackComedyRape It's even funnier]] considering [[BrotherSisterIncest the circumstances]].

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Wrestling/NormanSmiley of Wrestling/{{WCW}} -- so much so, in fact, that it became part of his [[TheGimmick gimmick]], as a baby {{face}} {{jobber}} no less.
* Long time Wrestling/{{Chikara}} {{rudo}} {{tag team}} El Hijo del Ice Cream and Ice Cream Junior tend to degenerate into girlish screaming when they lose confidence.

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* In one early episode of ''Series/SesameStreet'', one sketch with Bert and Ernie shows Ernie unable to sleep, so Bert tells him to count sheep, but Ernie finds it dull and tries to count something else, finally deciding on balloons. An imaginary balloon appears and grows to a huge size before finally exploding and rocking the room, startling Bert awake, screaming.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* Three instances occur in the ''WebAnimation/CartoonHooligans'' episode "What if Superman Got Sick?!":

** [[ComicBook/MartianManhunter J'onn]] also screams like this when Superman strips him naked (except for his underwear).
* A Running Gag in ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' is that Donut screams like a woman. Ironically, the actual girls don't. Done to the point that at least one of the Red Team's plans includes the following:
-->'''Sarge:''' Donut!\\
'''Donut:''' Yes, sarge?\\
'''Sarge:''' Scream like a woman!\\
'''Donut:''' Can do, sarge! ''(does so)''
* A short animated piece, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2p7z6xew_XU Oktapodi]]'': the delivery man screams like this at one point. Or it might have been the octopi. It's hard to tell. ItMakesSenseInContext. Really.
* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', [[ButtMonkey Jaune]] and one of his teammates (a girl named Pyrrha) get attacked by a giant scorpion in a cave. Cut to somewhere else where we hear a girly scream and people assume that some girl's in trouble. Then, cut back to the cave's opening. The screams continue while Pyrrha runs out of the cave, clearly not screaming.
--->'''Jaune:''' Pyrrha! [[NarratingTheObvious This is not the relic! It's not!]]
* ''WebAnimation/BarbieLifeInTheDreamhouse'' sometimes shows Ken and/or Ryan giving high-pitched screams. Teresa admits that she thinks Ryan's scream sounds even higher-pitched than Barbie's.
* In ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'', [[TheDitz Lumpy]], [[CasanovaWannabe Disco Bear]] and [[FailureHero Splendid]] scream like this whenever they're in pain (and in one episode, when Splendid's [[ClarkKenting secret identity]] is discovered).
* ''Machinima/{{Supermarioglitchy4}}'' does this in "Who let the chomp out?" before throwing a Star at the Chain Chomp, turning it into VideoGame/PacMan.
* ''Webanimation/CampCamp'' has counselor David frequently doing so. Camper Max also screams shrilly upon witnessing a weird orgy.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* One of the unfortunate realities of having an adrenaline rush is that it tightens all of your muscles -- ''including'' your vocal cords. This means that even people who are perfectly brave can wind up screaming like a girl -- so long as they are flooded with adrenaline. But if you choose to fight, it's HellIsThatNoise for the recipient. So if someone screams like a girl as they run away from you, go ahead and laugh, but if [[ScreamingWarrior someone screams like a girl and runs towards you]], ''try to run away even faster''.
* This 19-year-old guy while running away from an unexpected attack by a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBF2qXEIStw pissed off/rabid otter]] (hilarity starts at 1:12).
* Then we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XV8btXM_MD4 this guy in an electric taser demonstration]] at 8 seconds in.
* Generally speaking, [[ShapedLikeItself little girls scream like little girls.]]
* Police were called to a domestic disturbance with screaming and death threats only to find that it was [[http://www.cnn.com/2015/11/26/asia/spider-mistake-domestic-violence-australia/ a man attacking a spider]].

-->'''Man:''' Yeah sorry that was me, I really really hate spiders.
