Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A work that is heavily dependent on things, situations, or actions that are stereotypically masculine, in order to appeal to a predominantly male audience. Made by men, for men.
Expect to see Perma-Stubble, hot blood, improbably muscled males, Carpets Of Virility, lots of fighting, Stuff Blowing Up, large amounts of Rule of Cool, and if you're lucky, Manly Tears. Most, if not all of the main characters are often grade-A Badasses and sometimes Large Hams. Expect to see somebody shout a phrase WHERE! THEY! EMPHASIZE! EVERY! WORD! which can result in Memetic Mutation. Soundtrack is prone to be fueled by The Power of Rock.
Traditionally, the role of women in such works is often stereotypically feminine, as support characters or Love Interests, sometimes satellite ones, while the men fight and die (often for their sake). A woman may be the Unwitting Instigator of Doom, doing some small and unimportant action early in the movie or in the origin story, which start the chain of events that lead to some great disaster For Want of a Nail, and the real men would have to deal with it (for example, the villain may have turned into a villain in the first place because Love Makes You Crazy). Nevertheless, badass females are far from uncommon, and they may or may not be masculine in their interests. Either way, expect Fanservice. Though keep in mind actual sex or womanizing doesn't necessarily mean "manly", as most playboys tend to have physical (and personality) traits opposite to the ones described above.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })These works also tend to glorify war, although there have been many manly works with the opposite viewpoint.
Named after a line in the contrasting segment of the Janus Syndicate parody video Counter-Strike For Kids.
Just because a work falls under this trope doesn't mean that it can't have any feminine appeal or a significantly large female audience. You'll find that many of the examples below have almost as many female fans as they do male fans. This trope simply means that stereotypical masculine behavior is a significant focus of the work at hand. The number of female fans generally depends on how rigidly and/or multi-dimensionally the work fits this trope.
When those in charge think that a foreign video game would sell better with this aesthetic than the one it came with, you get the American side of American Kirby Is Hardcore.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The World of Badass is often the setting for this trope. Compare/Contrast Darker and Edgier. See also Awesomeness Is Volatile. Not directly related to Rated M for Money in any way but the potential for intersection between the two is high. In cases of works where voice acting is involved, Badass Baritone will often apply with a lot of the male characters.
Compare with Testosterone Poisoning, where the appeal to masculinity is exaggerated to the point of parody (though expect to pass through here before hitting Testosterone Poisoning levels of manly).
Contrast Chick Flick (which is this trope's opposite), Kawaisa and Moe (which are all opposed aesthetics).
Unrelated to Avoid the Dreaded G Rating, though they certainly can overlap.

Fight Club is a Deconstruction of this trope, presenting the modern man of The '90s as so emasculated by suburban lifestyles of soul-deadening consumerism that they resort to beating each other up in basements to feel alive again. A lot of dudes didn't get the satire.

The more modern Predators does its best to live up to this (hey, they even have Danny Trejo!) and you could say it's definitely the manliest movie of its year. No contest for competing with Arnie and Jesse, though.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It's the first game in the series to be rated Teen (not that that necessarily means, mind you). Link can turn into a wolf, sumo-wrestles a Goron at one point, and uses his own physical strength more than ever before.

Predator. Entertainment Weekly once named it the Manliest Movie Ever Made, beginning with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers giving each other a manly handshake, featuring Jesse "The Body" Ventura toting a Gatling gun, and starting the climax with Arnold bare chested, covered in mud and screaming out a battle cry.

The Predator also gets really manly, no matter if again the cast doesn't compare to the original and even has big roles for a woman and a child. Blood, explosions, swearing, tasteless dialogue, all a man craves!

Enter the Dragon; the film that put Bruce Lee in the map (internationally, at least), it has plenty of wonderful martial arts fights to go around. And Lee spends a good chunk of the latter half shirtless, showing off his amazing physique as he beats up wave after wave of mooks.

The entire Dirty Harry franchise. Hell, just about every movie Clint Eastwood is in. Heartbreak Ridge. A Fistful of Dollars. Unforgiven. Gran Torino. Even The Bridges of Madison County. You heard us; Clint Eastwood could star in a movie about Bella from Twilight reading an Oprah book of the month club book on Lifetime and still make it manly.

The mod "Brutal Doom" is about as close as you can get to the line that divides this and Testosterone Poisoning (that is it's so ridiculously Gorn-tastic and the protagonist can do things like rip monsters to shreds with his bare hands and provoke monsters by swearing and flipping them off that it almost feels like a parody but it's so badass and Nintendo Hard that it just barely manages to keep a straight face). The fact a large part of its reason for existing is to bring the comic book's vision of Doom to life (particularly with its use of the phrase "rip and tear") contributes significantly to that.

Endless Frontier. The four male protagonists are a cop, a cowboy, and two badass martial artists. The females are a foxgirl, a demon-girl, two Robot Girls, and a pair of busty princesses for good measure. And to top if off, they got a half-dozen armored assault mecha for sidekicks.

Bleach is a shounen that relies heavily on some of the classic formulae of the genre. It's heavily focused on fighting with character development and revelation occurring through the old-fashioned belief that only through fighting can men truly get to know each other and only when facing death can a man's personality truly be revealed. However, the excessively macho 11th division take the samurai fighting traditions to such excess they're used for both serious storytelling and parody. For example, Ikkaku would rather die than leave his captain's side for another division, but he can also pop his dislocated shoulder back into place with nothing more than a Pec Flex.

Death Race. It's a film about a modern gladiator game where prisoners, all badass racers with nicknames such as "Frankenstein" and "Machine Gun Joe," compete in a race in which the track is littered with all kinds of deadly traps while accompanied by hot babes as navigators. Oh, and the first film's protagonist is Jason Statham, and one of his crew is Ian McShane. The sequels didn't bring them back, but brought Danny Trejo and Ving Rhames for compensation. Can you feel it, dudes?!

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is all about manly chivalric knights and manly Dirty Communists (who also put the "evil" in medieval") shouting manly battle cries and Badass Boasts at each other at maximum volume and ferocity while fighting manly medieval war. The plot is thin, sure, but do you really need one with a premise like that? Even the main menu theme will put hairs on your chest, guaranteed.

Legend of Galactic Heroes. As a poster once put it "One does not simply walk into Iserlohn, after all. We're talking about Axe-fighting Germans on spaceships, people." Indeed, the show is filled with larger-than-life "galactic heroes". Special mention has to go to Oskar von Reuenthal and Walter von Schenkopp, though.

Apocalypse Now. Along with Platoon and Full Metal Jacket, this suffers from Do Not Do This Cool Thing syndrome. Most young men want nothing more than to attack a Vietcong village with helicopters and napalm, and then go upriver in a boat, whilst taking drugs, wearing a flak jacket and machine-gunning enemies. Ends up being deconstructed. Three of the crew are killed, the remaining two are probably scarred for life after their journey, the main character is already suffering from PTSD, the villain is a Mighty Whitey who went insane, and that's not even including the hundreds of background characters that we see losing or have lost their fucking minds in the most gruesome parts of the war. And absolutely none of it is portrayed lightly, as we what kind of an effect war really has on ordinary men.

Cromartie High School is an odd case, deconstructing not only the idea of a World of Badass, but badassery in general, but then thoroughly picking apart the concept of manliness itself, to the point it even inverts this trope in a later episode. And of course, it does it hilariously!

Disney Animated Canon has introduced many manly characters throughout their long run. And some of them have character songs to express a certain amount of masculinity.
The Seven Dwarves might be short and goofy looking, but they mine diamonds, and they'll go to great lengths to protect Snow White from the Evil Queen. Grumpy is the best example among the dwarves, for his Jerk with a Heart of Gold attitude. He even lead the charge at the climax of the film when the Evil Queen disguised as a hag poisoned Snow White.
Gaston of Beauty and the Beast is the best hunter in town, and is seen as the manliest man ever. His Villain Song is so manly, it's become a meme. Say "No one is MANLY like Gaston".
The Beast himself is not far behind Gaston himself, if not more so. He's built like a bull, and his voice is deep and imposing. He wrestled with a pack of wolves on his own just to protect Belle. And he's willing to let Belle go free because of his love for her, unlike Gaston, who would sooner go Yandere than let Belle go.
Aladdin introduces the Large Ham, Big Fun Genie with "PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS", everyone would like as a friend.
In the sequel, there's Jafar's Evil Genie form, who even has an Heroic Build to show he's outdoing the Genie whenever possible, even in manliness.
Sa'luk, the Big Bad of the third Aladdin film, another example of a manly Disney villain. He's one of the few villains to almost beat our favorite street rat in a fight.
The titular protagonist of Tarzan. Vine swinging, tree surfing, fights with jungle cats, runs around in a loincloth, has dreadlocks. No question, he's the picture of wild manliness.
Second to him is the English hunter Clayton. He's muscular, big chined, and carries his gun with him almost everywhere he goes. Not to mention, he's voiced by BRIAN BLESSED.
The song "Son of Man", by Phil Collins, is all about a boy growing up to being his own man, as seen in the film with Tarzan, while growing up to be an adult, learning to be himself rather than something he isn't, and to be proud of who he is.
Hercules, Greece's greatest hero, and the son of Zeus. "Zero to Hero" sums up his manliness pretty well.
Mulan: Li Shang's song "Make a Man Out of You" is the manliest Disney song ever. Helps that Shang is shirtless and showing off his Heroic Build throughout the song. Mulan herself certainly takes notice.
Yao, Ling, and Chien Po are also quite manly in their own right.
The Big Bad Shan Yu also qualifies, being a hulking, deep voiced warrior so strong he can hack into stone pillars with his sword.
The titular Wreck-It Ralph is also quite manly. He might built big, but he's also a Gentle Giant who would rather be a good guy instead of a bad guy.
Maui of Moana. Not only is he also heavily built, he has tattoos all over his body, and are greatly emphasized in his character song. It certainly helps that he's voiced by Dwayne Johnson.

Most war movies, especially The Dirty Dozen.
Lee Marvin tends to make a movie manly just by showing up.
Hell in the Pacific. Lee Marvin AND Toshiro Mifune. How the world survived is anyone's guess.
The Delta Force. Lee Marvin AND Chuck Norris!!!
Any movie that stars Chuck Norris automatically qualifies for this list, for the simple fact THAT IT CONTAINS CHUCK NORRIS.
Most classic war movies. A decent rule of thumb is whether it's in shelved under "Feature Films" or "War" at the video store.

In a gameline that usually emphasises horror, vulnerability and inner conflict, Werewolf: The Apocalypse stands out as being supremely manly. Your character is a huge, shaggy, monstrous Blood Knight fighting in a Forever War against hordes of deformed monsters. The society you are part of is, accordingly, made up of scarred, eternally scowling veterans embarked in a constant battle of dominance where everyone tries to prove themselves a bigger badass than the rest.

Scarface: The World Is Yours. Imagine Tony managed to escape from the finale of the movie alive. He now remembers how he was the baddest mofo around, and it's your goal to make all of Miami and beyond take notice that Tony's back and he's BAD—by literally rebuilding your Reputation (your experience points in this game). Your manliness (which you can build by doing macho things like shooting guys in the nuts and making timely—and profane—taunts) is literally measured in "Balls", which you can then use to go into a brief Unstoppable Rage.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is all about drills. And fighting. Breasts feature prominently in the background. And the manliness is so awesome it warps reality. Manliness warping reality is actually the driving force of the plot.
Even the girls are manly enough to warp reality.
Heck even the pet piglet is manly enough to warp reality.
Even the super-femme Camp Gay mechanic is manly enough to warp reality!
Manliest of all is Kamina. So much so just wearing his Cool Shades at least triples your manliness. WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK HE IS?!
It's a show all about doing the impossible, seeing the invisible, breaking the unbreakable. Fighting the POWAH.
Lordgenome, the evil version of it, might top them all. He's a giant muscular man with an impressive spiky beard and spiral-shaped chest hair who goes around shirtless despite essentially ruling the world. He is so manly HE DESTROYS GIANT ROBOTS WITH HIS OWN BARE HANDS. HE CONSIDERS USING HIS GIANT ROBOT IN A BATTLE AS "HOLDING BACK". He ate a Big Bang. As in for breakfast. Without milk. Devoured the damn thing whole and then turned into a gigantic-ass drill. Said drill was directly responsible for the defeat of the Big Bad.
Simon invented time-space teleportation just to punch Rossiu in the face.
By the end of the series, Simon becomes so manly that a nice outfit and ridiculous-looking pair of sunglasses spontaneously generates on his body, right in time for the final battle.
As described to an anime club once: "Gurren Lagann is about brotherhood, giant robots, and killing furries with phallic symbols."

Darksiders: Wrath of War.

Guilty Gear is a fighting game chock full of rock/metal music references. The main character is a tough-as-nails, swearing, rebellious, all-American Genius Bruiser Bounty Hunter who hunts down inhuman monsters with a Hot Blade that looks like a mix between a gas lighter and a cricket bat, and listens to Queen and builds awesome weapons in his spare time, and he can transform into a humanoid dragon.

Hawaii Five-0 in some ways. There's Steve McGarrett, a reserve Navy SEAL (Lt. Commander) and active Cowboy Cop who will happily open a locked door using a grenade, ride a motorcycle up a staircase, and otherwise behave like a badass. The rest of the team are no slouches either, and most of the significant women on the show are Action Girls. The guys are also pretty much Emotional Bruisers, there is lots of Man Hugging and it's up to viewer interpretation whether Steve and Danny are Heterosexual Life-Partners or secretly gay for each other.

Fist of the North Star, renowned for its manliness, stars a Bruce Lee knockoff who massacres post-apocalyptic biker gangs by making their heads explode ["You don't even know you're already dead."]. Also features exploding shirts in every episode.
There was the following description of this manga in the Internet:
A Top Ten List of Anime openings and endings put this at #1, with the following disclaimer:
Hokuto Musou features a Thrash Metal version of Ai Wo Torimodose. Does it get any manlier.
And the fun part is that despite all being the epitomes of manly asskicking, there's not a man among them who won't cry out rivers if it's appropriate. This is the series that made crying manly.

Rambo has become a term for exaggerated violence, thanks to its soldier protagonist killing everything in his path. Ironically, the original film First Blood was actually a drama that showed War Is Hell, about a shell-shocked veteran not being allowed to pass through a small American town and who only killed one person in the entire film.
Harlan Ellison has a review of the Rambo pictures in his book Harlan Ellison's Watching, speaking about the use of this trope to mitigate America's shame at having "lost" The Vietnam War.

Seven Samurai - So manly it makes its own manly trope. It's a bunch of samurai fighting a group of bandits. One of them romances a local girl, one is a Master Swordsman and another has a BFS as a weapon of choice. It may show examples of War Is Hell and display the pitfalls of glory-seeking, but it still has thrilling action.
And its Western remake The Magnificent Seven (1960) - Where the seven gunmen, plus the villainous bandit leader, are badass from start to finish.
The 2016 remake as well. Much like its predecessors, the film makes no apologies for what a Testosterone fest it is. A group of grizzled, well trained killers and badasses doing what they do best: Killing bad guys.

Ninja Warrior (Essentially American Gladiators on crack.) For that matter, American Gladiators itself. The third co-host of the show was Larry Csonka, the manliest man to ever play fullback, and the events that include wrestling, an urban assault course, beating each other with sticks, a game called Powerball that was the deadliest version of Red Rover ever, and finally, The Eliminator.

Dead Space: One man, alone, armed only with power tools, takes on a ship full of space zombies. And his most powerful weapon is his almighty boot.
In the future, the engineers are more badass than an entire warship full of armed soldiers.
In the future, flamethrowers are considered power tools. Possibly because, as weapons, they suck.
Dead Space 2 delivers even more Boot-on-Necromorph action.

This trope is apparently the reason Gaston hasn't been in any of the Kingdom Hearts games, aside from being too similar to Clayton. Actual examples from the series, most of which are incarnations of Big Bad Xehanort:
Ansem, Seeker of Darkness. One of the hugest hams in the series too.
Xemnas, voiced by Norio Wakamoto in Japanese.
Terra, possibly the manliest playable character, who uses rock and darkness powers, wields a giant Claymore of a keyblade. Being a young adult as opposed to an early-to-mid teen (like every other protagonist besides Aqua) definitely helps. And he would also later be possessed into becoming Xehanort himself, who would then be separated into the above two characters.

Half-Life: Full Life Consequences: John Freeman fights with bear hands, performs multiple backflips and other cool moves, is a One-Man Army and even pulls a knife out of his own back to use on the enemy. Badass!
Not to mention shrugging off several rounds from the combine's racket launchers and masheen guns while preventing the hug tower from blowing up long enough for the rest of humenkind to escape!
He needs to kill fast and BULLETS TOO SLOW!! Also, in the machinima, he lifts a train and throws it at the 'enemys.'

Attack on Titan parodies this, with the guidebook (which gives nearly every character at least one parody stat that they have maxed out to go with the actually serious stats) giving the Armored Titan a 10/10 in "Machismo".
The series itself is considered very manly with all the Titan slaying and the characters involved. Especially Levi.

Cowboy Bebop, though lacking in the Hot-Blooded factor, is packed to the brim with references to manly action movies, a soundtrack packed with upbeat jazz and rock music, awesome fight scenes (including non-ironic use of Gun Kata!), and macho plot threads such as a guy trying to find a girl he lost all while battling his pretty-boy arch rival and another guy struggling with his dark past as a cop and still haunted by the girl he loved leaving him. Oh, and did we mention Faye Valentine?

Asura's Wrath is quickly becoming manliness embodied. The main character has as much raw rage as Kratos, if not more, and takes on demons, gods, demigods, and anything else that gets in his way with pure manliness and rage to keep him going. At one point he fights an enemy that is larger than the planet, gets into a punching contest with the enemy's finger that's so intense that he breaks his arms off, then kills the guy with one final punch. And this is just an early boss fight. The following boss fights are even crazier. The best part? Asura's reaction to being faced with an opponent the size of the planet and tries to crush him with a finger the size of a mountain? Bring It. Oh, and the next few levels, Asura fights enemies with just his feet, head, and rage, since he destroyed his arms taking out the last boss. But Asura doesn't care, that's more than enough. Asura only has five weapons: his fists, feet, head, his rage, and his planet sized cahones. In a bit of irony, the game itself is rated T and C in America and Japan respectively, though it is rated M and Pegi 18 in Australia and Europe.

Until World of Warcraft's first expansion came along and wrecked it, by adding Blood Elves.
Which only get that reaction because they're the only race with normal human proportions.
There is a certain (repeatable) quest, the premise of which is that your character is admiring a giant spear, not sentient, or magical, or enchanted. But it radiates so much manly that your character looks to the horizon, spots a Proto-Drake and decides that only one of you will live to see the dawn. To reiterate: This spear is so manly that simply LOOKING at it inspires you to kill dragons. With your bare hands, no less.

Mandy (2018), like The Revenant below, is the rare film where "slow-burning indie art movie" crosses over with this trope. It's Nicolas Cage in the 80s on a quest for vengeance against evil Satanic cultists and a (possibly) demonic biker gang, and killing them in gloriously violent ways with a crossbow, a chainsaw, his bare hands, and a gigantic jagged metal axe, you can't get any manlier than that.

Throughout the The Transformers, we've been introduced to many, MANY, manly robots, but the most consist examples are Optimus Prime, and Megatron, the respective leaders of the Autobots, and Decepticons.
Then there's Grimlock, leader of the Dinobots, he's a large, aggressive warrior who's weapon of choice is a superheated BFS and he transforms into a robotic fire breathing Tyrannosaurus rex.

Homestuck. Equius Zahhak achieves this all by himself. He has much more muscle than a kid/troll his age should have (and when it shows, it shows), a few of his teeth, one of his horns and his sunglasses are all broken from his sheer strength, he's the STRONGEST troll on Alternia and never fails to emphasise the word STRONG, can only safely and adequately express his rage in cage matches with robots he built himself, he breaks/bruises everything and everyone with the lightest of touches, and instead of playing Sgrub properly he STRONGjumped straight through his first few gates. Also present are Dad Egbert (powered by pure mangrit) and Bro Strider (flash stepping ironic rapping roof ninja with more than a passing resemblance to Kamina).

Short story for Grand Theft Auto is the games are an anti social justice warrior's wet dream come true. There is a mission structure but eschewing that and causing as much mayhem and chaos as you can is actively encouraged by the game itself and the fan community alike. Abuse and trolling make you a man, violence torture and drug use make you a man, criminal activity makes you a man. Thing is it works, despite it being a Moral Guardians worst nightmare the series has had one critically acclaimed and best seller after another, with Grand Theft Auto V being the best...worst? example made in 2013 and still considered the biggest and best selling game ever made.

The first two Dead to Rights games fit this category. The Cowboy Cop Anti-Hero Jack Slate is a rugged individual with a Husky sidekick. He is brutal and ruthless in trying to solve mysteries, but shows slivers of vulnerability from time to time, especially in regards with his father. It is a bit hard to see those slivers through all the gallons of blood Jack spills over the course of the games.

The teaser trailer to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Narrated by Max Von Sydow with a Norse-inspired choir and orchestra in the background. Watch it here.
We might add that the trailer features a man weathering the full force of a dragon's flames with nothing but a metal shield, then shouting it down before summarily kicking its ass.

Metal Gear:
Solid Snake. A ruggedly handsome, tough-as-nails Anti-Hero stealth operative cloned from the Big Boss, the greatest soldier to have ever lived, with an IQ of 180 and fluency in six languages, a master of combat both unarmed and with weapons ranging from knives and pistols to sniper rifles and explosives, who travels the world to hunt down and destroy nuclear-armed Humongous Mecha to stop them falling into the hands of terrorists and rogue governments. He routinely faces whole armies and all manner of Super Soldiers with almost supernatural abilities, with just his skill and training. You bet your ass this series this manly.
The Boss. Her favorite disciple is Big Boss and her son is Revolver Ocelot. This woman makes the world's manliest men.
Dealt with intelligently, though, because although the characters are extremely manly and cool the series portrays a lot of the usual manliness tropes (like a penchant for committing flashy acts of violence, or not having emotions) as, at best, bad life choices, and at worst symptoms of actual mental disorders obtained through experiencing battlefield trauma. Also, as a Stealth-Based Game, it does not reward you blowing everything up. Usually.
Snake took down a tank with hand grenades, which in the real world is a very bad idea. Because of this, Otacon considers Snake "the shit".
In Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Raiden returns, more Hot-Blooded than ever, in his own game by Platinum Games. He cuts a bloody swath through hundreds of cyborgs, dozens Unmanned Gears including a Metal Gear Ray, three of the deadliest cyborgs on the planet, a Brazilian samurai, and a an insane US senator beefed up by nanomachines, son.

GaoGaiGar and its OVA sequel FINAL, in addition to Hot-Blooded, runs on this trope.
Shining examples are Geki Hyuuma who still shows off his massive biceps while in the vacuum of space and Goldymarg a robot based on him that is so manly ONE WOULD THINK HE WAS PROGRAMMED IN ALL CAPS.
Koutaro "Mundane Made Awesome" Taiga can make even golf badass.
Then there is Guy Shishio the man who epitomizes the Drop the Hammer a LOT more than Thor.
To wit, everyone in this series Exudes Manly Tears, the men, the children, the women, everyone.

Any of the Warcraft games, but specifically all installments with Samwise Didier as the main artist. Dear lord, even the elves are gigantic beefcakes you wouldn't find outside of a professional body builder contest. His profile on the Sons of the Storm website containing Blizzard artists' work flat-out says his style of art and favourite things to create are "Over-proportioned, primary colored, bulky armored dudes and monsters."
Until World of Warcraft's first expansion came along and wrecked it, by adding Blood Elves.
Which only get that reaction because they're the only race with normal human proportions.
There is a certain (repeatable) quest, the premise of which is that your character is admiring a giant spear, not sentient, or magical, or enchanted. But it radiates so much manly that your character looks to the horizon, spots a Proto-Drake and decides that only one of you will live to see the dawn. To reiterate: This spear is so manly that simply LOOKING at it inspires you to kill dragons. With your bare hands, no less.
If you're gonna include Warcraft, then you can't forget Starcraft or Diablo.
Starcraft 2 gives us Tychus Findlay: a Space Marine in Powered Armor (that's not all that necessary, as he's already huge and muscular), who smokes enormous cigars, drinks hard, fights hard, carries a minigun, pilots a gigantic war machine that qualifies as a One-Man Army... Face it: You want to be this guy.
Up until the point that Raynor shoots you in the face because of your Face–Heel Turn.
Jim Raynor is pretty awesome as well. After all, he managed to sit a drunken and suited-up Findlay on his ass while he himself wasn't wearing armor!

Exalted: Your predecessors kicked the ass of god-monster creators of the world itself. Now they are returning with an army of death and legions of demons, and it's your job to kick their ass again. The only thing right is what you declare as right yourself, you're beholden to no one, so get your swords/guns/big-badaboom-spells and start racking up the kills.

Wolfenstein: The New Order. Built like a brickhouse, dual-wielding machine guns and singlehandedly taking on the entire Third Reich while speaking in a grizzled macho whisper, B.J. Blazkowicz is as manly as they come.
The prequel, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, could be summarized as "the very latest in Nazi super-technology is beaten effortlessly by a shirtless Blazkowicz with a lead pipe".

Mad Max: Fury Road brilliantly subverts this by being loudly and unapologetically feminist in a way few movies of any genre can compare, nevermind a post-apocalyptic action film full of sweat, testosterone and motor oil. The film features scores of tough, empowering women ranging from Furiosa to the Wives to the Vuvalini as heroes and explores explicitly feminist themes, challenging objectification of women and toxic masculinity. It may be a manly film, but it is in no way a man's movie.

BlazBlue. Bang Shishigami.
In fact, about 2/3 of the cast in this game is either manly overload, or extremely hot babes.
The other 1/3 consists of Token Mini-Moe, Eldritch Abomination... and, depending on who you ask, the Dark-Skinned Blond Genki Girl Cloudcuckoolander catgirl with a (lack of) face made of pure scary falls either here or in the previous 2/3s, so take from that what you will.
Except Jin. Who falls mostly into Ambiguously Bi Sissy Villain territory, particularly around Ragna. Ironic considering that he becomes Hakumen, part of the above 2/3. And even Jin becomes an insanely badass Determinator post-CS.

Thor: Ragnarok even more so, although it leavens the hypermasculinity with generous doses of Technicolor Camp, all set to Led Zeppelin. One of the film's big action setpieces is a Thor vs Hulk gladiatorial match. Even the female lead is a Proud Warrior Race Girl Lad-ette.

Dwarf Fortress adventure mode is so hilariously manly, it often goes to Testosterone Poisoning levels. Did you just lose your four limbs? NO PROBLEM! Go, crawl through the landscape and bite your foes to death! No healing for you, unless you are a werebeast!
You can wrestle bears and win. You can then throw these dead bears at other bears to kill more bears, even without limbs. Or even dual wield bear corpses and pummel your enemies with it!
Hell, even fortress mode is pretty manly. Mostly your legendary soldiers, who will become (if they don't die) so badass they can go and slaughter Eldritch Abominations on their own or entire goblin sieges, but your blacksmiths are generally pretty manly because they don't even need a hammer to work, they just hammer the metal with their fists.
Dwarves can ride a minecart while that minecart is full of lava. How's that for manliness?
Even your female dwarves can be very manly. Maternity break? What's that? They can give birth in the middle of an enemy siege and still completely curbstomp the siege!
Twelve-Year Favor. It's proof that Nightmare Fuel and Moment of Awesome can become one.

The Seven Dwarves might be short and goofy looking, but they mine diamonds, and they'll go to great lengths to protect Snow White from the Evil Queen. Grumpy is the best example among the dwarves, for his Jerk with a Heart of Gold attitude. He even lead the charge at the climax of the film when the Evil Queen disguised as a hag poisoned Snow White.

From The Venture Bros.: Brock Samson. He may not kill you with a gun, but he'll kill you with anything else he can get his hands on!!
Reaches an apex in "Eeney, Meeney, Miney... Magic" where Brock enters a machine that shows people their deepest desires. He fights off a horde of ninjas with a knife, beats up cowboys wielding flamethrowers and riding T-rexes, whallops polarbears in cars with gatling guns, and has sex with Molotov Cocktease. Another borderline case of ''Testosterone'' Poisoning.

The Icelandic Sagas and Gesta Danorum.
Although Njal's Saga is arguably a really effective Deconstruction of Scandinavian masculinity; many of these Viking men react pathetically to affronts to their manly honour and it becomes clear that a lot of the death and destruction in the story could easily have been avoided if they had cooler heads and thicker skin.

Die Hard is a slightly lighter example than most other "classic" action movies, since it depicts an emotionally vulnerable hero who's really more concerned with saving his marriage than being a badass. Nonetheless, the film has enough moments of male pride (particularly from the villains) to still ultimately fit this trope.

Berserk: A much Darker and Edgier version. Man with a sword the size of Kilimanjaro hacks his way through the legions of Hell, with more blood per volume than the entire filmography of Quentin Tarantino. And his name is literally Guts. Ironically, one of the themes of the manga is how much of a strain being this sort of person is on your psyche.

[PROTOTYPE]. Alex Mercer kung fu kicks helicopters and tackles tanks, making them explode!
The game it was a Spiritual Successor to, The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, is pretty much the same. You are The Hulk! And nothing can stop you!
You can catch a cruise-missile mid-flight, and throw it at a robot the size of a building. You can skateboard on top of a bus, destroying everything in your path. You can crush a car into boxing gloves. You can smash your fists together so hard that everything in a hundred-foot radius of you is sent flying.

The "Macho Nachos" episode of You Suck At Cooking parodied this. The host suggests that only real men watch the episode, and gets rid of on-screen captions by punching them. While making the nachos, the host adds moisturizer to his hands, puts on nail polish, and tap dances to his fridge. After the nachos are done, he adds flowers to them.

The Legend of Zelda:
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It's the first game in the series to be rated Teen (not that that necessarily means, mind you). Link can turn into a wolf, sumo-wrestles a Goron at one point, and uses his own physical strength more than ever before.
Ganondorf takes this even further in all his appearances, not just Twilight Princess. While Link has accomplished some pretty manly feats, Ganon is just as powerful and looks the part too. He's an extremely tall, extremely manly Evil Overlord Genius Bruiser and wields the Triforce of Power, making him one of the single most powerful beings in the Zelda universe. Twilight Princess even has him survive an execution attempt after being stabbed through his armor.

You can say the whole Halo series represents this trope, especially when Master Chief appears in it; riding a bomb into an enemy warship is just the start of it. There's also this live-action trailer for Halo 3: ODST. Need we say more?
The Sangheili (or Elites) can be summed up as "Sparta in Space": an entire culture dedicated to being badass warriors, where promotion and social advancement is directly tied to one's body count, and one of the lawfully accepted ways to deal with political disagreement is attempted assassination (with an emphasis on "attempted").

Steven Universe:
Jasper is a Super Soldier war veteran with the looks and attitude of a particularly nasty shounen Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy villain. Though like all One-Gender Race Gems, Jasper is a she, and also in a show that is otherwise quite feminine and soft. Naturally, she gets defeated by The Power of Love and doesn't take it too well, nor understands that she was.
Steven Universe: The Movie introduces Steg, the fusion of Steven and his dad Greg, who is much more muscular and manly than both of his components.

Heavy Metal. All but one (the scientist's daughter) of the women characters are naked at one point. World War II pilots are shot and turn into zombies. And it's loaded with violence, constant nudity, and a kick-ass 80s rock soundtrack. What more could fit the bill?

Super Mario Bros.:
Bowser, Mario's Arch-Enemy, is a giant fire-breathing turtle monster covered in Spikes of Villainy who's very boastful, arrogant, powerful and badass. While he's more of a comic relief villain in the RPG spinoffs, one RPG - Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story - has Bowser as one of the protagonists and ironically depicts him at his manliest.
Wario, Mario's Evil Doppelgänger, is a big guy with a huge mustache and huger arms and a boorish, slobbish attitude towards everything, who thinks of himself as the epitome of machismo. He's also well known for his Stout Strength and resilience.
The series has other bit characters that fit this trope, such as Rawk Hawk and the Massif Bros.

You, with a big-ass sword and dagger, can run around Mordor at your leisure decapitating Uruks in various brutal fashions, tame and ride ginormous Graugs and Caragors, all while on a quest to free the curse of an undead Wraith bonded to you permanently to avenge the murder of your wife and son, all while being able to cheat death in the face of your toughest enemies..

Also from Dissidia, Golbez. He is above walking, is clad in some kickass armor, drops twin meteors on your ass and blasts you with Frickin' Laser Beams. Oh, and this is what he looks like, with and without his armor.◊ It helps that he was a Darth Vader Clone in his original game (and Vader himself is under Film, above).
Speaking of, Jecht, mentioned above, manages to go from manly to even more terrifying strong. Without being in his Aeon form, he throws a punch at Tidus and whiffs him, and it still sends him flying. And Jecht estimates it would be three days before he woke up, imagine what would have happened if the punch actually connected!

Muddy Waters: Most musicians in this list are sissies compared to this blues legend. Muddy sang with a Badass Boast the most virile and lustful songs of all time: "I Can't Be Satisfied", "I Just Want To Make Love To You", "I'm The Hoochie Coochie Man", "Mannish Boy", "I Got My Mojo Working",... all sang with a powerful voice and an electrified blues rock sound that paved the way for Rock & Roll as we know it. If you're still not convinced listen to The Anthology 1947-1972, a double album with the most essential recordings this blues legend made between 1947 and 1972.

Full Metal Jacket. While the movie is a deconstruction of the tribal, primal nature of war and the military with some over-the-top elements that verge on Testosterone Poisoning, there are still plenty of gutsy themes associated with traditional masculinity as well such as hijinks mixed with strength or bravery and vitriolic comradeship.

Red Dead Redemption is the story of former outlaw John Marston, complete with facial scars and Badass Beard, taking up his guns once again at the behest of the US government to hunt down his former gangmates and rescue his family, cutting a bloody swathe through the US and Mexico as a One-Man Army. Red Dead Redemption II, the prequel set in the gang's heyday, features tall, handsome and sharp-witted also-One-Man Army Arthur Morgan as he robs banks, gets into shootouts and casually charms practically every woman he meets.

Mad Max (especially Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior). The leather-clad hero travels the desert wastelands of Australia in his muscle car, killing gangs and saving citizens.
Mad Max: Fury Road brilliantly subverts this by being loudly and unapologetically feminist in a way few movies of any genre can compare, nevermind a post-apocalyptic action film full of sweat, testosterone and motor oil. The film features scores of tough, empowering women ranging from Furiosa to the Wives to the Vuvalini as heroes and explores explicitly feminist themes, challenging objectification of women and toxic masculinity. It may be a manly film, but it is in no way a man's movie.

The titular protagonist of Tarzan. Vine swinging, tree surfing, fights with jungle cats, runs around in a loincloth, has dreadlocks. No question, he's the picture of wild manliness.
Second to him is the English hunter Clayton. He's muscular, big chined, and carries his gun with him almost everywhere he goes. Not to mention, he's voiced by BRIAN BLESSED.
The song "Son of Man", by Phil Collins, is all about a boy growing up to being his own man, as seen in the film with Tarzan, while growing up to be an adult, learning to be himself rather than something he isn't, and to be proud of who he is.

Kirishima and Tetsutetsu have a fight in the sports festival arc that is literally just this, even ending in a cross counter and having Kirishima congratulate Tetsutetsu with both looking like something out of freaking JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
In the anime filler episode focused on Tsu's internship, Seal Hero Selkie does his best to appear adorable, despite the fact he has a very muscular physique and masculine features. None of his crew believes his attempts make him cute in any way...except Tsu herself.

Deadliest Warrior. Different warriors from history are pitted against each other in bloody battle, for your entertainment. Samurai vs. Vikings, Spartans vs. Ninjas, Pirates vs. Knights, Shaka Zulu vs. William Wallace...
Spike TV as a whole. It's the result of taking "Rated M for Manly" and building an entire 24 hour a day TV channel around it, not at first, but now they have distilled their lineup. If it's not howling-in-your-face overdone manliness, if it's not about death or booze or babes you'll never get, it doesn't belong on Spike. Its Chick Flick equivalent is Oxygen, and its nerd equivalent is Syfy.
Spike "manned up" Unsolved Mysteries when they took it over, cutting existing segments to fit five into an hour for a "faster, more modern" look and creating "more male-oriented stories." The show's distinctive spine-chilling feel was lost, according to fan discussions.

Mulan: Li Shang's song "Make a Man Out of You" is the manliest Disney song ever. Helps that Shang is shirtless and showing off his Heroic Build throughout the song. Mulan herself certainly takes notice.
Yao, Ling, and Chien Po are also quite manly in their own right.
The Big Bad Shan Yu also qualifies, being a hulking, deep voiced warrior so strong he can hack into stone pillars with his sword.

Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky. An expy of Kenshiro, who himself is an expy of Bruce Lee, learns kung fu from his uncle by shattering gravestones thrown at him. When he kills the drug dealer who killed his girlfriend, he is imprisoned; whereupon he fixes cut tendons in his arm with his teeth, punches the lower jaw off one of the wardens, punches the arm of the same warden thus causing it to explode, battles and defeats an ogre by throwing it into a meat grinder, and then frees the prisoners by punching a hole through a concrete wall, also causing it to explode. Did we mention he has five bullets embedded in his chest the entire time but is totally unconcerned? This would honestly fall more into the realm of Testosterone Poisoning; if only the film-makers, as far as anyone can tell, weren't dead serious.

One Piece:
Among the main cast, Zoro is the most prominent example. His daily schedule consists of three things: eating, sleeping and training. And when a fight is incoming... oooh boy.
Amongst the manliest men ever to walk the planet, Edward Newgate A.K.A. Whitebeard A.K.A the World's Strongest Man, is made out of pure manliness. He is about five times as large as a normal man (and is a biological human), is insanely strong and can create earthquakes. He can also take a TON of damage: at the time of his death, he had received 267 sword wounds, 152 gunshot wounds and 46 wounds from cannonballs - and did not have a single scar on his back, because he never, ever ran away from a fight. In addition to all of this, he is probably the purest example of A Father to His Men you will ever find: he call all his crew members and allied pirates "sons", and goes to war against the World Government to save just one of them.

While the smaller, cuter Pokémon tend to get all the attention, several of them evolve into much larger badass forms. Other Pokemon start and stay that way. Also Gary Oak.
Strictly all of the Generation 1 starters, with Charizard being the most prominent example.
From Johto we have Feraligatr (a very manly cyan-gator, with massive jowls, capable of tearing it's prey to shreds.)
Groudon (it's a lava-controlling, earthquake-making dinosaurian badass)
Garchomp (because it's a desert shark/dragon with JET ENGINES. also has "Gar" in his name)
Machoke and its evolution, Machamp. (quite obviously)
Tyranitar, a very powerful Godzilla-like rock monster covered in hard armor with spikes everywhere.
Aggron (is a steel-plated triceratops partly made of rock)
Nidoking, especially the one that Gary Oak owns
Gyarados (it's a giant Sea Monster with a well-groomed Badass Mustache. )
Haxorus (a dinosaurian dragon with tusks that resemble a battle axe)
Blaziken (a Shotoclone Bird Man that shoots fire from its wrists)
Tyrantrum (a bearded Tyrannosaurus rex that's also somehow a dragon)
Incineroar (an extremely buff bipedal tiger heel wrestler with a championship belt made out of fire)
Tauros, Bouffalant, Zekrom, Arcanine... the list goes on.
Zekrom was specifically designed to be "hard" and "masculine" compared to its counterpart Reshiram, who has a softer, more angel-like appearance.
Mewtwo who can probably destroy all these pokemon with his mind.
The humans in the franchise aren't exempt from this, either.
Drayden is a muscular, bearded man who wrestles with his fully evolved dragons. To toughen them up.
Chuck, Bruno, and Marshal are huge, muscular Fighting-type Trainers, emphasized by the former two's Walking Shirtless Scenes. Chuck's official art even shows him hefting a giant dumbbell.

The Hebrew Bible has Samson from the Book of Judges, who kills Philistines by the hundreds, and King David (from the Books of Kings), who does that plus runs a country, keeps a harem of beautiful women, and writes poetry.
The Book of Judges also contains Ehud, who spouted a testosterone laced on-liner before offing an enemy king with a concealed weapon.

A Chrono Cross fanfic The Hunt begins with a badass Bar Brawl. Two burly men threaten Guile, who simply ignores them and pours a bottle of wine into his glass. When the men start to play rough by smacking his back, he counters by throwing the wine in the glass at one of the guys before tossing the empty glass at the other guy, incapacitating them. After that, Guile smashes the wine bottle and threatens one of them by squeezing the spiky ends of the broken bottle into the guy's cheek. When everything is over, the bartender scolds Guile for giving him a heart attack.

Automata, meanwhile, while more feminine and certainly not without its sappier moments, has loads of Stuff Blowing Up, Hot-Blooded, hot female-modeled androids that would put any males to shame in combat, flying mechs that take down even bigger mechs, and a story that explores themes such as war, corruption, and prejudice.

God of War:
In just the first 10 minutes of God of War, you get to make Kratos literally tear foes in half, rip the wings off of a harpy, gouge a Hydra head's eyeballs out, and impale another head on the mast of a ship. It only gets better from there...
In II, you start off by fighting the Colossus, a giant animated statue using a man that would bring Leonidas to his knees in shame, then just move on from there.
In III, you start off by fighting the leviathan, the apocalyptic living embodiment of the sea itself, as it is destroying the Titans who are climbing up Mount Olympus to wage war with the gods. Even more epic than it sounds. And then it's god slaughtering time.
The handheld version sets you off against a Cyclops as your first big boss. Well, that's understandable, smaller platforms gonna mean WHAT THE FUCK SOMETHING JUST ATE THE DAMN CYCLOPS!

Victoria: An apocalyptic tale of badass ex-military militiamen throwing off the shackles of Big Government and the Fed, crushing leftism and political correctness and setting up a frontier society of well-armed homesteaders and rugged individualism. And fighting dastardly Nazis, Indians, neo-pagans and techno-amazons along the way. one should note, however, that "manliness" is this situation is not the same as goodness. The militiamen crush leftism mainly because they themselves are at the opposite in of the political spectrum and the society they set up could be more accurately described as reactionary and theocratic than true individualism.

Terra, possibly the manliest playable character, who uses rock and darkness powers, wields a giant Claymore of a keyblade. Being a young adult as opposed to an early-to-mid teen (like every other protagonist besides Aqua) definitely helps. And he would also later be possessed into becoming Xehanort himself, who would then be separated into the above two characters.

The Destroyer series, featuring Remo Williams and Chuin, Master of Sinanju. In this case, the books approach this rating from the other direction: they're pretty much all parody but the over-the-top machismo is simultaneously downplayed, so that while all the things you'd expect under Testosterone Poisoning are there they're generally treated as the uninteresting parts of the books.

Baki the Grappler: Pretty much every major character is saddled with an absurd case of muscles (though a lot of them have oddly feminine faces to go with it). In the sequel to the original manga, Baki Gaiden Scarface, an unarmed man wins a deathmatch against a twenty-two-foot shark by shoving an arm through its eyesocket and crushing the brain. It's that kind of story.

The Blues Brothers is about saving an orphanage with the power of awesome music, outrunning the police and later National Guard in a Cool Car, pulling off impossible stunts in a Cool Car, dodging gunfire, ignoring explosions, and running down Nazis (or sending them off bridges to their deaths), all while wearing Badass Suits with Sunglasses at Night. It's the only musical men will watch, even if they deny that it's a musical. Tommy, The Wall, and Paint Your Wagon (featuring Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood) also qualify for the Manly Musical.

Spartacus: Blood and Sand, where even the gays can eviscerate Roman soldiers with ease. It is a show about a Gladiator Revolt after all. "Femininity" is defined as having a slightly lower kill count than the male characters and the male heroes often have their girlfriends (or boyfriend) by their sides as their partner in battle. Despite being a drama, the abundance of lusty women baring it all and almost comically choreographed sex scenes makes it dangerously close to Testosterone Poisoning.

Fairy Tail has Natsu Dragneel, the Hot-Blooded, fire breathing Dragon Slayer.
Gray Fullbuster has a well trained physique, which he tends to show off by taking off his clothes, and is cool under pressure in a fight.
Elfman, whose catchphrase includes the word 'Man', believes everything should be settled with fists.
Elfman's usually talking about things that are "Manly", or what a Man should do, and all of his emotions are Manly as well. It goes so far that in later episodes in both manga and anime other characters question whether Elfman himself understands what he is saying.
Gildarts does some pretty manly things, one notable example was a simply showing his power, not even doing anything with it which left a crater and Natsu in tears of fear. Another being destroying a black hole.
Ichiya says "man/men" just as often as Elfman does, and despite his comic relief status most of the time is the most powerful member of his guild.
Makarov may be old and tiny, but he has a really big presence, and is a major Papa Wolf to his guild.
His grandson, Laxus follows suit, with being one of the strongest wizards in Fairy Tail, and packs a powerful lightning punch.

Fate/stay night: The whole Internet is GAR for Archer. Berserker drips manliness as well, but of the more brutal type.
On the same token, Tsukihime... sorta. The only living guys, other than the Big Bad (who is just plain Ax-Crazy), are so absurdly manly that you'll grow a beard from playing just one route.
And also Rider of Fate/Zero. There's a reason he was known as the King of Conquerers in life.

Warhammer 40,000 is the manliest tabletop game, no, manliest THING in existence. From its fluff to the posing of its models, everything about 40K drips pure, unbridled, unfiltered, grimdark MANLINESS! Some examples include:
A demi-god revives a walking war engine the size of the Empire State Building simply by touching it and saying "BE HEALED, MACHINE SPIRIT!"
A crazed, speed-obsessed Ork ramps his kustom bike off a cliff and slams through 12 Void Shields to enter the nuclear core of a walking war engine the size of a building and kills the entire crew while he's still on fire from breaking the shields. The burning skulls of the engine's drivers are now mounted on that Ork's bike.
Ordinary men with flak jackets, laser guns, and standard issue balls of steel, battling metal zombies, gigantic all-devouring bug monsters, super-advanced aliens, ancient manipulators who have had thousands of years to perfect their methods of war, hulking psychotic genetically engineered warriors that live only to fight, and mindblowing horrors from beyond space and time...and sometimes managing to win. The fact that they've got some amazing tanks and truly badass leaders helps.
Gunnery Sergeant Harker of the Catachan Jungle Fighters, leader of the elite "Harker's Hellraisers". Harker was born on a jungle Death World so insanely dangerous that every settlement is fortified against the native predators (which include amongst other things, scorpions the size of tanks), every plant is toxic, and there is only a 25% chance that you will survive long enough to see your tenth birthday. Every person who comes from this planet is invariably going to be a tough and mean bastard, and Harker is considered the toughest and meanest of all of them. Harker's Weapon of Choice is a Heavy Bolter, which is an automatic cannon that fires .75 calibre explosive shells and usually requires a team of two men to operate as a fixed emplacement weapon. One time, Harker was attacked by a Tyranid Ravener, a terrifying serpentine monster that can easily rip a man limb from limb, and worse for Harker, the sudden attack knocked his weapon away; undeterred, Harker jumped on the thing's back, wrestled it to the floor and crushed its neck with his biceps.
Newborn infant travels through a Negative Space Wedgie unharmed, crash-lands on an icy hellhole and subsequently gets Raised by Wolves. Eventually he beats the most powerful human in existence in a drinking contest and then gets to lead an army of space Vikings across the galaxy. Face it, Leman Russ is the pure distilled essence of manliness.
The Orks and Space Wolves are basically entire factions of Manliness. To wit:
The Orks were inspired from Highschool Football hooligans while every other faction had it's roots in real-life armies (one of which is the Spartans). They only care about Fighting (shooting and smashing faces), Food and Fast Cars, and their form of promotion is beating the crap out of the boss. They've also managed to fire guns which had no triggers or bullets, made the color red into instant speed potions, and invented space travel using a junk pile.
The Space Wolves are all Drunken Boisterous Bruisers. They are the only faction to be considered "good" in the setting, mainly because their leader holds a Daemon Axe, and still managed to intimidate the Inquisition from hurting innocents through brute force. They also ride wolves into battle, wolves the size of cars, and one of their more notable members managed to get laid 12 times within one night. Everyone has a badass beard and prior to the Grey Knight retcon they were the only non-chaos faction to survive in the warp without turning evil.
Ah, but what are these two compared to Khorne and his followers? He's a god of war, rage, strength, martial honour, battle and single combat, and is depicted as an impossibly muscular warrior with a horned, wolf's head sitting atop a massive throne of skulls floating in an endless sea of blood and his plane of existence is basically a site of never ending conflict. And his worshipers are giant, axe brandishing, war loving Blood Knights who also tend to be the best melee combatants in the setting.
If ever there was a game that was made of pure 100% mansauce, Warhammer would be that game!
God himself could not sink this game!
Correction: The only possible way God himself could sink this game would be by destroying the entire planet Earth by blasting it down to it's component atoms, then hurling said atoms into the sun, then throwing the atom filled sun into a black hole. Then probably throwing that black hole into another black hole. But that would be cheating. And it still probably wouldn't work.
A third-person shooter of the universe is being created, starring the Space Marines (Titled Space Marine too, actually). The manliness of the game has already shown with footage of the Player Character jumping off the air transport he's on effortlessly when it was hit and losing altitude.
And more gameplay footage has shown, among other things, cutting Orks in half with chainswords, shooting Orks in da face with bolters, shooting Orks tied to missiles who are shooting at you out of the sky, and stomping a downed Ork's skull in with your mighty power armored boot. This game is so manly, your balls will grow balls.
The Sisters of Battle. There is an entire army of nuns who go around armed with flamethrowers, chainsaw-swords and guns that fire explosive rounds the size of a human fist, and wear Powered Armor. They're also Large Hams who sing praises to the God-Emperor as they cut their enemies apart. Oh, and they're most assuredly not pretty little girls, either: the standard Sister is fearless, fanatically devoted, tough-as-nails, and their bodies are covered in scars earned from their Training from Hell, and the veterans are even more harsh and grizzled. In short, the women of the Warhammer 40000 universe are manlier than most men in other sci-fi universes.
Kharn The Betrayer, so manly that he was resurrected by Khorne for the purpose of spreading more blood and gore. He's not a Berserker, he's The Berserker, plus he effectively demolished TWO SPACE MARINE LEGIONS BY HIMSELF!

Lawrence of Arabia: A movie about Bedouin riding around on Cool Horses and camels in scorching deserts, killing large numbers of Turkish soldiers! That's also about beautiful desert landscapes, British imperialism, one man's war with his own nature, and features barely any battle scenes, instead being rife with sexual tension between men. Not exactly Predator, then.

Iron Man makes this list once more. This is from the second season of his 90's cartoon, in which the show seriously grew the beard... or mullet, as the case may be. Face-melting guitar solo. Medieval-style blacksmithing — not merely without protective gear, but without a shirt. All the while "I! AM! IRON MAN!" roars in the background.

Warhammer may not be as over-the-top as its erstwhile sci-fi spinoff, but it's no slouch in the manliness department.
In normal High Fantasy settings, the elves are somewhat effeminate, the humans resemble real-life humans, and the dwarves are manly. In Warhammer, the elves are manly, the humans are beyond manly, and the dwarves make Chuck Norris look like a milk-drinking wimp.
The Warriors of Chaos make them all look like dickless pansies. They're an incredibly muscular, bearded, daemon-worshiping, One-Man Army Viking warrior race who thrive in the most inhospitable areas of the Old World, and who are clad in spiky, skull-studded Conan gear. And their best fighter tend to be eight foot tall Norse demigods clad in really,really intimidating plate armour (with skulls and spikes everywhere), wielding weapons most men struggle to lift and who are able to wrestle Bloodthirsters to the ground.
The humans in Warhammer fight many of the same gargantuan demonic monstrosities as the humans of Warhammer 40,000, but instead of artillery and lasers they've got steel breastplates, matchlock muskets, and swords. They still win.

Final Fantasy X gives us the tag-team duo of Jecht and Auron. Wither in shame as we enumerate their manliness:
Jecht hurls meteors. Prior to that, he was a professional athlete superstar with the body of a bronzed god, perpetual shirtlessness, and masculine facial hair. When he ends up in Spira, he's immediately put in jail for being a raging drunken jackass. About the only mark against his manliness is his lousy treatment of his son, but in the end he takes responsibility for his failures, thus attaining perfection.
Not to mention the final battle against him, in which he fights the heroes as a giant flaming Kaiju, whom at one point arms himself with a BFS by yanking it out of his chest. All to the tune on Otherworld.
Auron is a living legend of Spira, the only guardian ever to survive a successful pilgrimage. Despite being dead (from an unrelated incident following the pilgrimage), he refuses to rest and instead walks the world as a battle-scarred veteran who's utterly unimpressed by anything, speaks only when necessary, and tries to raise his dead friends' kids to become the heroes he and his posse couldn't be, all while smacking behemoths clear out of the battlefield in single strokes and lighting things up with cyclonic hellfire created by whipping up a whirlwind with his sword and throwing his jug of booze into it. And when he's done with all that, he heads over to the Kingdom Hearts universe to back-talk Hades and nearly kill Hercules with one hand.

Olympic athlete bodies, perpetually shirtless, and with superstrength...check. Hard rock intro...check. Their base is located under a baseball stadium and their diet consists of hot dogs and root beer (with the feeling that if the show wasn't for kids they'd drop the root part)...check. It's even sometimes lampshaded in the show itself. Who knows how many gay male furries this show and Street Sharks spawned in the '90s…

Flashman, in an odd way.
By extension, Ciaphas Cain HERO OF THE IMPERIUM! of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, who was largely inspired by Flashman. He keeps up a Manly-and-badass-yet-humble facade to hide the fact that he'd rather be shuffling papers at a nice safe desk instead of going toe-to-toe with Hive Tyrants and Khorne Beserkers (though the skill with which he fights said monstrosities makes it a really convincing facade).

Conan the Barbarian helped define the Swords-and-Sorcery genre, with it's noble barbarian hero and epic adventures.
For that matter, anything by "two-gun Bob" Robert E. Howard, ever.
In a similar mold, The Elric Saga.

No More Heroes at times. We have Death Metal, covered in tattoos and with decorative bolts in his face. A little before you get to him there's a picture in his mansion of him sittin' with a hot woman. Destroyman, although insane, has a codpiece that fires super lasers. In the sequel, Travis himself gets a great manly moment in the form of one of his Dark Side powers, in which he turns into a friggin' tiger and shreds mooks to pieces. We also get Charlie McDonald, who fights alongside his throes of under-cleavage showing, Uncanny Valley invoking cheerleaders. Letz Shake returns as a robot that looks like a giant penis. Also, Travis's bikes, both of which are called the Schpeltiger.

In The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, Captain K'nuckles tries to prove to Flapjack that he's this trope. He is less than 1/4 of this, at least whats left of him that's human anyway.

The first season of JAG (on NBC) was essentially an Action Series, where the protagonist just happened to be lawyer, marketed and made according to this trope. When the show moved to CBS, it was retooled to include more legal drama and soap opera elements, partially to appeal more to female audiences.

God Hand. Everything about God Hand is powered by 100% high-octane, weapons-grade, enriched testosterone, and 50% slapstick comedy. Yes, that is 150% of AWESOME. Therefore, God Hand probably straddles the line between this and Testosterone Poisoning.

Kill la Kill. It's called the Spiritual Successor to Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and for good reason: even though the main characters are female, it oozes testosterone, blood and raw fighting spirit from every episode. It doesn't have Kill for nothing. And of course, since the main cast is female, it also has a lot of Fanservice.

In Nomine: Probably best summed up by a quote from its discussion list, in which GM Neel Krishnaswami describes the problem of getting PCs to properly fear the Devil Himself: "IN amplifies this effect, too. Take a standard starting PC. Straight off at bat he (or she) can kick butt, take names, and chew bubblegum — all at the same time. And after they're done icing the bad guys, they can stiffen the spines of the meek, bring hope to those on the brink, and win the hearts of all the cute girls (and cute guys, too) — all because they're *angels*, on a *divine mission from God Himself*. And just for icing on the cake, for pure overkill of cool, he (or she) has got Ray-bans, a flaming sword, and a fast motorcycle. Now, do you seriously expect this PC to freeze up and kiss a$$ just because the Prince of Darkness has shown up?"

Skeleton King earned himself a reputation as "the manliest hero without testicles" due to being able to take and dish out an absurd amount of punishment. Dota 2 made this image canon upon retooling him as the Wraith King, making him a big, burly dude with a magnificent beard, a huge sword, and No Indoor Voice who can make the Badass Boast "DEATH IS MY BITCH!" and actually back it up.

F-Zero; this game not only brings us Captain Falcon, but Samurai Goroh, Black Shadow, Super Arrow, and tons of other muscular masked racecar drivers. In a Japanese game with Loads and Loads of Characters, there is only one bishonen in the game (Jack Levin) and even he's manlier then most!
Forget the men! Mrs. Arrow, one of the few women in this sausagefest, outright shames most of the men in the series. She's easily one of the best racers and is depicted as a confident woman with the muscular physique of a female bodybuilder. She also happens to emasculate her husband, who is a bona-fide superhero and the defender of Earth. She's eye-candy, has a very feminine figure, and is (at heart) a sweet, caring, nurturing, loving housewife and friend who grew up as an Ojou with an aptitude for music and linguistics and a fondness of high class culture. Try wrapping your heads around that.
Special note goes to Baba, who pretty much epitomizes Macho Camp (unless he's really just a overly flamboyant narcissist), and even he could give some guys on this page a run for their money.

In the sequel, there's Jafar's Evil Genie form, who even has an Heroic Build to show he's outdoing the Genie whenever possible, even in manliness.
Sa'luk, the Big Bad of the third Aladdin film, another example of a manly Disney villain. He's one of the few villains to almost beat our favorite street rat in a fight.

Epic Meal Time is all about eating food that is gigantic and completely unhealthy, such as a lasagna made out of burgers and pizza, with food items that stretch into the hundreds of thousands of calories. The entire thing is hosted only by men, and their mascot is a silent dude-bro named Muscles Glasses who typically chomps down the things they make with his bare hands. Also, they add bacon strips (and bacon strips, and bacon strips) to every dish, and all the narration is done with emphasis on everything with intense music playing in the background.

The rules of Atlantis: The Second Age not only enable players to play their Heroes like this, but also greatly reward them for doing so. Acting cowardly and unheroic actually makes you lose experience, while you get extra experience for fighting with great style. Like slaying an enemy with your bare hands or while being naked. Instead of improving your character's abilities, you gain the ability to use increasingly large numbers of Hero Points to greatly boost any of your die rolls. The number of Hero Points you start with is relatively low, but you can always get more by going on a night of debauchery, cursing the gods, activating a disadvantage, or make expensive sacrifices. To fight the really big and dangerous monsters, you absolutely have to use lots of Hero Points to do things that could only possibly be done by those greatly favored by the gods.

League of Legends loves this trope when it comes down to their male characters along with World of Buxom for their female characters. Some examples include Graves, Jarvan IV, Jayce, Pantheon, Draven, Alistar, and Darius. And there is even more to the list with Loads and Loads of Characters. Some even have nicknames based on it, like Mantheon and his ult the Mandrop (official name Grand Skyfall).
One big problem the fandom's been complaining about is the lack of both AffirmativeActionGirls and its reverse, manly men in female-dominated roles. AD Cs, for example, are often female (or Ezreal), and supports are almost entirely girls (or Taric). Enter Graves and Braum, respectively a manly ADC with a double-barreled shotgun who likes getting up close and personal, and an All-Loving Hero of a Barrier Warrior whose job is to protect his allies with his massive shield.

Defense of the Ancients: All-Stars:
Sven the Rogue Knight, who is here to PUMP YOU UP (or GETS PUMPED UP himself). As a muscular knight, his strategy revolves in being manly as hell and build himself up so he can rush to the battlefield without fear and then wreak havoc with just self-buffs that cause massive splash damage. And a giant fist-formed Rocket Punch for area stun.
Skeleton King earned himself a reputation as "the manliest hero without testicles" due to being able to take and dish out an absurd amount of punishment. Dota 2 made this image canon upon retooling him as the Wraith King, making him a big, burly dude with a magnificent beard, a huge sword, and No Indoor Voice who can make the Badass Boast "DEATH IS MY BITCH!" and actually back it up.

Peter Tosh: Self-proclaimed "The Toughest" and "Steppin' Razor", he's considered the hard man of reggae. He made it his lifetime goal to challenge authority figures and to encourage others to do the same. His marijuana consumption was legendary and he survived many police beatings. Also, he didn't really do love songs - he has a small handful across his whole career. He would also swear frequently, creating his own words like "shitstem".

Postal and its sequels all feature a protagonist dressed in a leather trenchcoat, sunglasses and having a Badass Baritone for a voice. The manlyness of the games come from the high amounts of gore, hot chicks, Osama Bin Laden and the cool weapons you can use to slaughter your way through everyone, from shovels to a nuclear rocket launcher in the second game's expansion pack. Oh, and you can piss on everyone too.

Anything written by Emilio Salgari. An example from the Sandokan novels is when the title character kills a tiger with a knife. Here's the adaptation in the tv movies... And it was actually toned down from the novels (Sandokan had rushed the tiger from the side and toppled it, started strangling him with the unarmed hand, and then declared himself a tiger too before cutting the tiger's throat). And it wasn't to save his Marianna, but his romantic rival).
In a twist, Salgari does not refrain from showing when it's stupid and the characters could be better served by using their brains. For example, Sandokan declaring he'd kill the tiger with his knife prompted Marianna to try and shoot the tiger first because of just how stupid it is to face a tiger with a knife, and she said so to his face after the beast barely escaped her.

Manly Guys Doing Manly Things. So manly, it's in the title twice. One of the main ideas of the comics is that real manliness is being a good man on the inside, and that "manly man" and "loud obnoxious jackass" are not the same thing. It also introduces the idea of becoming so manly you enter another plane of existence:
Also, in the future, they apparently worship Marlon Brando.

Hajime no Ippo: it's about members of a boxing gym who dedicate their lives to the sport. They're filled with so much fighting spirit that the whole series is translated as that in some countries.
Special mention must go to Mamoru Takamura, who truly is a man among men, to the point that it borders on Testosterone Poisoning. The best example of this? He fought a bear and won. Even better, the bear gives him some scars on his chest and shoulders that only serve to make him even more manly and seriously intimidate his opponents.

Dragon Age II is slightly less over-the-top about it, but is arguably even more awesome.
The Qunari as a whole are incredibly manly, standing over 7 feet tall and going anywhere bare chested, with red warpaint and a permanent scowl on their faces. Entering their camp is like walking into a gym and a biker bar at the same time.

Diabolik doesn't usually rely on this, but on occasion we can see such a situation. Like when the title character had to kill a giant octopus with a knife to recover a chest full of diamonds (the owner of the treasure had put it in a pool with the octopus specifically to protect it from Diabolik, not expecting him to find out early, and Diabolik didn't have the time to just fill the pool with poison), or the time he was swimming for fun and was attacked by another giant octopus (he killed this one with a knife too in spite of being caught by surprise).

Primal (2019): The show takes place in a primordial world swarming with Prehistoric Monsters. The protagonist, Spear, is a tough, muscular caveman who hunts for food and gets into brutal and gory fights with predators on a daily basis. However, to balance out the violence, he was also a loving father to his children before their death, and often shows compassion, especially towards his Tyrannosaurus rex friend Fang.

Doom, although the comic goes a bit nuts with this and turns into Testosterone Poisoning.
The mod "Brutal Doom" is about as close as you can get to the line that divides this and Testosterone Poisoning (that is it's so ridiculously Gorn-tastic and the protagonist can do things like rip monsters to shreds with his bare hands and provoke monsters by swearing and flipping them off that it almost feels like a parody but it's so badass and Nintendo Hard that it just barely manages to keep a straight face). The fact a large part of its reason for existing is to bring the comic book's vision of Doom to life (particularly with its use of the phrase "rip and tear") contributes significantly to that.
DOOM (2016): Oh HELL YES! Between the blood, the gore, the Glory Kills and the one-man onslaught against The Legions of Hell, DOOM is all about being a badass. Doom Eternal only increased the magnitude of badassery. RIP AND TEAR!
The soundtrack of the game itself is enough to grow hair on your chest. The fact that one of the main instruments is a SYNTHESIZED CHAINSAW hits hard that this isn't some peaceful game.

NieR. The epitome of a Papa Wolf, a gruff, intimidating warrior willing to go through anything to save his daughter, in a desolate wasteland he continues to save even after he discovers his daughter cannot be cured. Also the cause for the shedding of many Manly Tears due to its nature.
Automata, meanwhile, while more feminine and certainly not without its sappier moments, has loads of Stuff Blowing Up, Hot-Blooded, hot female-modeled androids that would put any males to shame in combat, flying mechs that take down even bigger mechs, and a story that explores themes such as war, corruption, and prejudice.

By extension, Ciaphas Cain HERO OF THE IMPERIUM! of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, who was largely inspired by Flashman. He keeps up a Manly-and-badass-yet-humble facade to hide the fact that he'd rather be shuffling papers at a nice safe desk instead of going toe-to-toe with Hive Tyrants and Khorne Beserkers (though the skill with which he fights said monstrosities makes it a really convincing facade).

Chaosic Rune, and its sequel, Chaosic Rune ES. Yes, it's a manga about a card game, but it involves hot-blooded, manly men and well endowed (95% of them, anyway) women fight evil villains in epic battles that include badass dragons, giant motorcycle robots, magical monsters, and more. And along with cards that summon monsters, there's cards that summon weapons such as swords, pistols, and shotguns. Yes, shotguns. It's like if ~Yu-Gi-Oh!~ were written by Bruce Campbell and drawn by Chuck Norris.

Spec Ops: The Line subverts this trope, using it to create an expectation in the player then pull the rug out from under them. At first, heroic, bad-ass-looking manly men from Delta Force go out to do manly things like save American troops in Dubai and shoot brown people in the face. They show no emotion except grim determination and professionalism as they announce, "Tango down!" and kick all kinds of ass. By the end, the characters are war criminals screaming with mad rage and terror. They shout, "I want him FUCKING DEAD!" at targets and howl like animals when hit. Their rugged good looks have been reduced to scarred, broken ghoulishness. Nervous breakdowns, freakouts, and PTSD-induced hallucinations start raining down from the character's shattered minds and morals. War Is Hell and possibly Hell Is War as the game deconstructs this trope - along with most tropes found in a modern war shooter video game. Then the game flatly delivers to the player a "The Reason You Suck" Speech just for wanting to live this kind of fantasy in the first place.

Shadowverse: It's not hard to find any card that falls into this category (since many of the male Swordcraft and Dragoncraft followers usually fall into this), but the most exaggerated example is neutral follower Gruff Mountaineer Captain, which can more or less be seen as a parody of this trope.

Sazh in Final Fantasy XIII. Specifically, in crystal stasis. See this picture◊, where he looks like he's about to get up and kick ass even though he's solid crystal. Also, Chocobo in the 'fro.
Snow, who, despite the name, is a 6'7" dude in a longcoat and bandana with stubble who runs around shouting about heroism, beating up pagan gods with his bear hands (his weapon is the longcoat itself), riding around in a bike made out of attractive robot women, and leading a resistance movement that specializes in turning random mothers into badasses and whose favorite move is protecting others with STEELGUARD! His appearance in XIII-2 cranks this Up to Eleven by removing his ability to die.

Dragon Ball Z is about men with muscles so large (and in places where muscles aren't really supposed to exist) as to be an impediment to motion in scenarios even remotely grounded in reality fighting one another plus various aliens, monsters, demons, mutants, gods, and robots in increasingly violent and deadly battles (everybody except the Fake Ultimate Hero dies at least once) with increasingly-powerful Supernatural Martial Arts. Warrior ethos and the prides of martial artists play a prominent narrative role. Women feature, but mainly as a means by which to introduce sons into the mix. And breasts. By the time the series ended, the Big Bad could quite literally tear the universe apart by shouting loudly enough, and even the weakest fighters were probably in danger of destroying the planet they were on if they so much as tripped.

Starcraft 2 gives us Tychus Findlay: a Space Marine in Powered Armor (that's not all that necessary, as he's already huge and muscular), who smokes enormous cigars, drinks hard, fights hard, carries a minigun, pilots a gigantic war machine that qualifies as a One-Man Army... Face it: You want to be this guy.
Up until the point that Raynor shoots you in the face because of your Face–Heel Turn.

Eyeshield 21 has this in spades, though given that it's about American Football, it's a bit of a given. Especially notable given that it's a post-Millennium Shonen Jump series that mostly manages to avoid Bishōnen Jump Syndrome in an era rife with it.
Many of the characters go straight into Testosterone Poisoning territory, considering most of the cast have some pretty impressive muscles and they're only in high school. For example, the 15-year-old who's 6'7, eats nothing but meat, looks like a caveman, and smashed a car head on with his bare hands when he was in grade school.

Auron is a living legend of Spira, the only guardian ever to survive a successful pilgrimage. Despite being dead (from an unrelated incident following the pilgrimage), he refuses to rest and instead walks the world as a battle-scarred veteran who's utterly unimpressed by anything, speaks only when necessary, and tries to raise his dead friends' kids to become the heroes he and his posse couldn't be, all while smacking behemoths clear out of the battlefield in single strokes and lighting things up with cyclonic hellfire created by whipping up a whirlwind with his sword and throwing his jug of booze into it. And when he's done with all that, he heads over to the Kingdom Hearts universe to back-talk Hades and nearly kill Hercules with one hand.

Bulletstorm: if it's not the fact that a simple kick to the face can throw your target 10 yards away and the whole focus of the gameplay is to be as creative as possible with your frags, the main character's dialogue is a constant stream of swears and he even looks a bit like Wolverine. And talks like him. It frequently veers into outright parody.

The Sopranos - drugs, violence, male bonding, fatherhood, and diatribes about the emasculated state of contemporary Western society abound. Frequently subverts itself, though, by reminding viewers that most of the "manly men" in question are in fact morally bankrupt human beings whose inability to express themselves in any way other than aggression makes both them and their families miserable.

Revolutionary Girl Utena: Despite being a Bishōnen, Akio is very much this. Riding shirtless through the night on a giant, throbbing, red Muscle Car after front-flipping the hood? Just the beginning. The show does, however, make it very clear that masculinity based on wealth, power, sex and violence is both shallow and toxic.

Hellsing. Tons of action and vampires and explosions and everything else that a manly show could want, along with several characters who would put the action stars of the 70s and 80s to shame. Alucard, Anderson, and the Captain are just the most obvious male examples, but the show also features Action Girls galore.

Gungrave. How about killing alien zombie gangsters with hand cannons on each hand and a BFG hanging from your back, or Katana fighting Tanks with a Blind Badass Longcoat wearing Deadpan Snarker (said katanas have pistols on the handles) or Electrocuting said Zombie alien gangsters with an electric guitar wielded by a Rocking Ghost that looks like a Vash The Stampede expy? and that is not counting the Bosses.

Final Fight. The Power Trio in the first game consists of a bare-knuckle brawler who punches a dude out of a thirty-story building for kidnapping his girlfriend (Cody), an extremely badass ninja (Guy), and (last, but MOST CERTAINLY NOT LEAST) a politician (and father of said kidnapped woman) who cleans up crime... by piledriving thugs into the ground and introducing them to the concept of gravity (Haggar). Of course, it exists in the same world as Street Fighter, so go figure. Also, the other Haggar-centric series, Saturday Night Slam Masters. The WWE has nothing on this. Even the lone female is sure to emasculate many, even though she reveals herself to easily fulfill the fanservice quota.
