* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Normally, people would be intimidated by fighting two large bear monsters. Not [[BadassAdorable Yang]], apparently. Between dodging their swings, she's casually teasing them and asking them where her sister Ruby is. That is, [[BerserkButton until one of their swings]] [[MinorInjuryOverreaction catches a strand]] [[NobodyTouchesTheHair of her hair...]]

* In ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', while he's not technically the one in danger, Alfred remains perfectly calm and [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] whatever [[Comicbook/{{Batman}} Bruce]], a man who's like a son to him, is up against.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'':
** In the episode "Escape to the House of Mummies, Part II", spiked walls are closing in on Doc, Brock, and the boys. They're unbelievably calm about it (it's hinted that they've encountered this situation dozens of times before, but still...), except for Doc, who is only slightly more aggravated than usual. At one point, Hank sits atop a spike and "rides" the wall.
** Another good example from the same episode:

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'', Percy Weasley transforms his brainwashed superior using a Sea Urchin Jinx, and states that he is resigning. Fred then remarks that Percy finally told a joke [[spoiler: unfortunately Fred dies right after.]]

** Gradually, two [[JustifiedTrope justifications]] are developed for the show's many, many examples of this trope. First, most of the villains are [[PunchClockVillain card-carrying members]] of the Guild of Calamitous Intent, therefore bound by a thick rulebook that tones down their effective menace (to say nothing of those that are incompetent to begin with). Second, the Venture family have been in seemingly perilous situations their entire lives and have become somewhat GenreSavvy and even bored with it. A lampshade is hung on it in "Victor. Echo. November.", when the danger comes directly from the Guild itself for a change:
--->'''Dr. Venture:''' ''[after the lights go out]'' Don't be a nervous Nelly. The generators will kick in in-- ''[lights come back on]'' There you go. ''[lights go out again]'' Um, this is different, Brock, isn't it?

* In ''VideoGame/Bayonetta2'''s prologue, Bayonetta and Jeanne seem awfully preoccupied about their upcoming Christmas party. That would be casual enough, if not for the fact that they were at the same time fighting hordes of Angels hell-bent on killing them.

* As Japanese carrier ''Hiryu'' was sinking during the Battle of Midway, Her captain and his superior, Admiral Yamuguchi, calmly talked about the moonlit night sky as they went down with the ship. Heroic and honorable this might have been, it was still foolish as Yamaguchi was Japan's best carrier admiral and his loss was a big blow.
