* ''ComicBook/WonderWoman'': Etta Candy's sorority gals known as the Hollday Girls were a genderswaped example during the UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks. They pretty much constantly wore college-labelled clothing, spent way more time partying than studying or going to class, got in fights, sang bawdy songs about men and were all required to have experience in at least one sport in order to get into the sorority in addition to the InitiationCeremony. They are pretty constantly engaged in [[WackyFratboyHijinx Wacky Sororitygal Hijinx]].

* ''VideoGame/SaintsRowGatOutOfHell'' has ''demon'' fratbros as one faction of demons for Johnny Gat and Kinzie to contend with during their time in Hell.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheMarkAndTheVoid'', the team of bankers the Caliph of Oran sends to make a deal are all 18-year-olds who are interested only in drinking, drugs, and making lewd jokes. Being English, they all have somewhat ridiculous cockney accents.


* In the Middle Ages, university students were condemned for drunkenness, getting into violent brawls, and engaging in all sorts of mistreatment of women up to and including rape, making this OlderThanPrint.

* A few of Cecil and Kain's lines in the Playstation version's translation of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' are like this. [[http://legendsoflocalization.com Legends of Localization]] [[http://legendsoflocalization.com/final-fantasy-iv/intro/ refers to this]] as "Cecil and Kain, who are super-high ranking knights, talk[ing] like college bros or something".

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' portrays musical theatre creators Creator/StephenSondheim, Creator/StephenSchwartz, Creator/AndrewLloydWebber and Music/EltonJohn as all being beer-swilling bros in secret.

** So influential was he that a poster of Blutarsky on a dorm / fraternity wall is an almost necessary prop.



* Nathan from ''Film/ExMachina'' acts much like a guy who never grew out of his college frat lifestyle. He binges on alcohol, and enjoys dancing and sex with attractive women. He is also into exercise, uses the words "dude" and "bro" a lot, and acts familiar and chummy with Caleb. On the other hand he is far more reclusive than one would expect an extroverted frat bro to be, what with his mansion/laboratory in the middle of a vast tract of wilderness, and as the robot-inventing founder of a high-tech company he has a decidedly nerdy specialty.

Added DiffLines:

* One of the entries in ''Literature/GravityFallsJournal3'' tells of the Author's encounter with the "Abominable Bro-Man", a [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti Sasquatch]] who dresses and acts like a stereotypical frat boy.

Added DiffLines:

* Vernon from ''Series/YoureTheWorst'' still behaves much like an [[ManChild especially immature]] one of these despite being almost 40 years old - he constantly spews juvenile humor and insists on making [[GargleBlaster highly alcoholic "trash juice" punch]] for parties. His wife Becca even calls him a "talking penis in a clown wig".

* In ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', Calvin's father, ''the'' poster boy for MiseryBuildsCharacter, is often alluded to have been one [[FormerTeenRebel when he was younger]], with his son pulling out old pictures of him from college where he apparently did headstands on beer kegs.

* Creator/DaneCook was often seen by fans and critics alike as an archetypical example of Fratbro comedy, with much of his material focusing on telling long anecdotes about drunken antics and dating[=/=]relationship issues. Perhaps unsurprisingly, his fanbase during the peak of his success largely consisted of teens and young adults and he would often perform in college towns during his stand-up tours.

* Yahtzee from ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation'' characterizes {{Xbox 360}}'s target audience as being largely this trope, largely due to the popularity of their multiplayer shooters appealing to them.
