* In season five of ''Series/GameOfThrones'', Tyrion Lannister seems much less bothered after having [[spoiler: murdered his former lover Shae and his father after having found her in his bed in the Tower of the Hand]]. Tyrion seems back to his old wise-cracking, clever self by the time he is captured by Jorah Mormont. Some fans have theorized that this was done to avoid Tyrion's much darker characterization from the corresponding book, which was disliked by many readers.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' episode "Timebreaker", Chat is surprisingly cavalier about his death in a previous timeline, much to Ladybug's annoyance. On a broader level he immediately JumpedAtTheCall in "Origins", not caring in the slightest- then or later- that it entailed risking his life on a daily basis.

* Kotori's mother in ''Anime/LoveLive'' at the end of season 1 seems perfectly at ease with her daughter [[spoiler:ditching her plans to study abroad for a promising fashion career at the very last minute (as in, while in the airport waiting for her flight with her escorts) to rejoin her fellow idols. During the concert on the same day that Kotori was supposed to leave, Mrs. Minami can be seen in the background with a warm, sincere smile on her face. You'd think she'd be a little angry, if not outright furious, given the preparations, costs, and faculty talks she went through to ensure a prosperous future for her daughter.]]

*** Being turned into Locutus in "The Best of Both Worlds" makes it seem as if Picard is just going to shrug this one off, despite looking a little haunted at the final shot. Nope, the very next episode, "Family" (FanNickName: "The Best of Both Worlds, Part III") has Picard collapsing in tears about how the Borg essentially ''raped'' him and forced him to experience every moment. You might think it's {{Cathasis}} in that episode, but ''nope''. Fast forward to ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'', and we find Jean-Luc has not gotten over it ''at all'', and it's hinted he has nightmares about it ''all the time''.

* In ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', the characters don't let something as trivial as a floating island that could wipe out humanity if dropped stop them from making wisecracks. It's something of a trademark for Creator/JossWhedon in his works, but many professional and amateur critics have noted that while the constant quipping in life-or-death situations is an effective tension-breaker, it becomes a liability when [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt a given scenario]] actually calls for tension.

* 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.

** In Episode 74, Tails takes his newfound [[BodyHorror Shroud]] [[LovecraftianSuperpower abilities]] rather well too - in fact, he thinks they're the coolest thing ever.

* Rapunzel from ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' seems pretty chipper despite being locked up in a tower her entire life with only her emotionally abusive mother as her human friend. It gets more noticeable later into the film after she finds out [[spoiler:her mother kidnapped her as an infant, never loved her, has been lying to her her entire life, and only kept her around for her magical powers. She also saw said mother suffer a DisneyDeath.]] Despite all this she still seems to be a PluckyGirl and never bemoans her childhood. Rapunzel lacking any trauma due to Gothel was a developmental change as an [[WhatCouldHaveBeen earlier]], darker script had her much more reluctant to leave her tower and more nervous around people.
