* Seras Victoria from ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}''. She's unnaturally cheerful, upbeat, and goofy for someone who's had all of her police partners killed, was nearly raped and killed by a vampire and then is actually turned into one. Also, during her childhood [[spoiler:her father was murdered by burglars, her mother hiding her in a cupboard to protect her, and her mother was immediately murdered by them]]. It was because of this trope that Alucard had the interest in turning her into a Vampire, that she would still wish to live even after being through all of that.

** Subverted with the Tohoku triple-disaster. While those affected managed to remain silent, many broke down when [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2005289/The-toxic-truth-Japans-harmony-tsunami.html interviewed]], and believed that their government had failed them in its relief efforts.
** Averted in many cases with bullying, in which many students commit suicide just as they would anywhere else in the world. Laws were enacted in 2013 by the Prime Minister, in particular response to a child's parents who committed suicide two years earlier and had everything his class had done to him swept under the rug.

* One of the charaters in ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', Tracer, is UnstuckInTime due to an experiment gone wrong. She's effectively a ghost that blinks in an out of existence irregularly without a special device she has to wear at all times on a harness. Despite this, she's incredibly chipper and only seems to notice the benefits of her situation now that she's a partial TimeMaster.

** Mei has a distinctly bubbly and happy attitude, so you wouldn't guess that she actually has one of the darkest backstories of any of the heroes. She's a scientist who was stationed in Antarctica when a polar storm hit, and she along with all of the other scientists stationed there entered cryostasis in an attempt to survive. Years later, Mei was the only survivor as all of the other scientist's cryogenic chambers had failed.

** [[spoiler:That said, Reimu is later shown to suffer the beginnings of depression and PTSD, at least partly due to the isolation she'd imposed upon herself. Yukari, picking on this, sends Suika, who takes her on a JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind of her friends, forcing her to talk with others about her death and resurrection. Merely acknowledging what happened somewhat helps, as does recognizing she has friends she can rely upon; discussing it and encountering different viewpoints (notably, helping Sakuya deal with her own EnemyWithin) helps even more. Between this and learning of the Kashoyo threat, Reimu is jolted out of her depression.]]

* In the ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' episode "Operation: C.A.K.E.D.-F.I.V.E.", a Kids Next Door operative from the 1800s is thawed out after having been [[HumanPopsicle frozen in an ice cream explosion]] for nearly two hundred years. His modern day counterparts try to console him because they assume he must be in shock. After all, his world is gone and everyone he ever knew is long dead. Turns out the only thing he's bothered about is the fact that the Kids Next Door are [[StayInTheKitchen now allowing girls to become operatives]]. Throughout the entire episode, he never shows any real sadness as a result of [[FishOutOfTemporalWater his plight]].

* Showa ''Franchise/KamenRider'' series usually has the riders treat their angst relatively quickly, Heisei Riders on the other hand...not so much ([[Series/KamenRiderKuuga Yuusuke]] and [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Eiji]] being notable exceptions).

** Eiji, on the other hand, is an upbeat guy, but the deeper wounds left on him by his experience in that war zone are ''very'' much important to the plot.

** [[Series/KamenRiderFourze Gentaro]] lost his parents when he was little, but when his friends find out about this he says it doesn't bother him much because he still has happy memories of them, and every day he tries to make as many friends as possible, just like they asked. This is a strong contrast to other Heisei Riders like [[Series/KamenRiderBlade Kenzaki]] and [[Series/KamenRiderWizard Haruto]] who also lost their parents when they were little, but still suffer a form of survivor's guilt at the start of their shows.

** Arya in the first book, in spite of having been, by her own admission, beaten, tortured, and [[AttemptedRape very nearly raped]] for weeks on end, the biggest reaction we get out of her thereafter is a paragraph of her clenching her jaw a bit as she recounts the events... and after that everything's just peachy.

Of course, she's TheStoic; she isn't exactly laughing and joking around.

** In the [[ComicBook/StarWarsPrincessLeia new Expanded Universe]], Leia is devastated by her planet's destruction, but doesn't show any outward grief from it, causing a lot of the rebels under her command to think of her as cold hearted. Eventually, she defies her superiors wishes to embark on a quest to find and unite the surviving Alderaanians.

* An X-Men finally snapped in a 2016 storyline. A serial killer in Germany had been murdering what he had hallucinated with contagious sentients. When ComicBook/{{Nightcrawler}} saw the mass grave, he had a complete mental breakdown.
