* Shane, the co-host of ''WebVideo/BuzzfeedUnsolved'', who has dismissed everything from flashlights turning on at command to voices being caught on EVP to footsteps being audibly heard during one of their investigations as simply coming from natural causes. It's become a running joke in the fandom that for him to actually believe in ghosts, they'd probably have to drop-kick him into the floor.

** In the English dub of the series, Seto Kaiba stubbornly refuses to believe in the supernatural abilities of the millennium items and Duel Monsters' and his own mystical ties to ancient Egypt, despite constantly witnessing and occasionally being a victim of them. (By contrast, in the original Japanese series, he had no issue believing in the supernatural, he just thought dealing with it was a pain.)

*** A swift aversion is in the asylum shrink studying Danny. At first he's properly skeptical of Danny's claimed identity, but with only a small amount of digging realizes it's really him. On the other hand, he considers Danny's statements about K'un-Lun and the power of the Iron Fist to be fantasy, even while he acknowledges the Incident in the same breath (the way Danny talks about the Iron Fist doesn't help). However, he ''also'' notes a number of people have come forward since the Incident claiming to have superpowers, and thinks Danny's done the same to cope with the trauma of losing his parents in the same plane crash that nearly killed Danny himself.

* The [[Creator/RankinBassProductions Rankin-Bass]] [[ChristmasSpecial holiday cartoon]] ''Twas the Night Before Christmas'' brings this mind-twister to light: the closest thing to an antagonist in the movie, an atheist mouse, lives in a world in which Santa is very real... not a belief in him, but Santa himself. There is no question on this; it's a matter of demonstrable fact... he can be seen, talked to, he has a '''secretary''' who ''answers the phone'' when you call the North Pole. Santa is as real and as important in their society as, say, Brad Pitt is in ours. The mouse kid says he's a myth. His reason? It's scientifically impossible to do what he does. Put into context, imagine living in Metropolis and meeting someone who refuses to believe in Superman because he does things that defy physics... or someone who refuses to believe in Mutants in the Marvel 'verse because what they do is "impossible". It's like that. To be fair though, the thrust of the film is he's a nerd and generally insufferable douche who [[KnowNothingKnowItAll thinks he's got more brains than he really does]], which is to say, none at all.
