[[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, ''you'd'' 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...
-->-- ''Series/DoctorWho'', "School Reunion"

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.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* 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]] gets attacked by the [[ScaryScorpions Death Stalker]] and screams. In the distance, Blake and Yang assume a girl is the one screaming.

[[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. Could count as a HellIsThatNoise for the recipient if the rush of adrenaline is accompanied by the Fight option of Fight or Flight being selected. 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 toward 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 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.]]
