The male damsel (also known as the Distressed Dude) is similar to the Damsel in Distress, but it happens in boys and men. Males can fall into dangerous situations in many ways. Usually, a male damsel gets kidnapped or captured by the main antagonist, swept away by a river; possessed/brainwashed by an evil entity, chased and attacked by a monster or dangerous animal, transformed into a vicious monster or animal, or caught up in a natural disaster. Mostly he can free himself. Sometime the heroine can save them, just like the hero do when they saving them.
