* 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 the plot actually calls for tension.

** 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.

* In the ''Literature/LordsOfTheUnderworld'' series, Gwen is kidnapped by mad scientists, caged for months in a glass dome so small she can't even ''lie down'' in it, and ForcedToWatch many other captives being tortured and raped. This experience is treated by everyone as a bad thing, sure, but a day later Gwen is entirely re-acclimated to normal life and has no trauma or lasting emotional effects whatsoever [[note]]although the lack of ''physical'' harm is explained by her immortal nature[[/note]].

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'':
** The Scotsman seems rather jolly when [[spoiler:he rises as a ghost after being '''incinerated down to his bones''' in front of his mortified daughters by Aku. He just seems happy to have come back in his youthful prime as a SpiritMentor.]]
** Played more seriously, Ashi shows little resentment towards Jack for [[spoiler:killing all of her sisters: it's intended to hammer home the fact that the Daughters were raised to repress their empathy, even for each other.]]

* The most reaction we get from [[ComicBook/{{Robin}} Tim Drake]] about the death of [[LoveInterests Stephanie Brown]] was the story where she was revealed to be NotQuiteDead.

* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuDinoPosse'': None of the dinos seem to care that all the other dinosaurs were wiped out by the Ice Age and that the world is now drastically different than it was 65 million years ago.

* In Disney's Sleeping Beauty, Aurora has a meltdown when she's told she can't see a boy (she literally just met outside of infancy) again. On the other hand, she doesn't give two spits that her aunts are fairies hired to protect her, she's now required to go live as a princess after years of freedom as a peasant, and her parents are actually alive and well. If the happy dance at the end is any indication, Phillip is all that matters at all.

* In ''WesternAnimation/PlanetSheen'', Sheen doesn't seem at all worried about getting back to Earth at all. Sure he writes a letter to his grandmother in several episodes, but that's it. What about his father? What about Libby? He doesn't at all seem to care that his friends are missing him back on Earth or that he'll probably never see Jimmy and the others again. Nesmith even lampshades this.

** Granted, though, the [[WesternAnimation/TangledTheSeries TV spin-off]] establishes that Rapunzel ''does'' have occasional nightmares about Gothel, though she doesn't seem to let it bother her too badly.
