* Shaggy in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7020049/1/Scooby-Doo-and-the-House-of-Monsters Scooby Doo and the House of Monsters]]'' has spent four years as the gym teacher at the Ghoul School and grown so used to monsters that he barely blinks at things that freak out Velma, who spent the same time looking for the supernatural all over the world.

* Bruce Banner, better known as ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk, forces himself not to react to the dangerous situations he finds himself in out of fear of HulkingOut, justified since as the Hulk he's NighInvulnerable so the only thing he's really worried about is [[ApologeticAttacker what's gonna happen to the enemy.]] This trait is carried other to his [[Series/TheIncredibleHulk TV]] and [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse film]] counterparts.

* The ''Literature/WheelOfTime'' treats horses enough like minor characters that it's important if they've been trained to not panic in fights against Trollocs and Myrddraal.

* ''Franchise/MetalGear'': Aside from the TrainingFromHell he received from The Boss, on top of what he went through to become a Green Beret, Big Boss's many painful experiences have made him cynical about his flirtation with horror. He's come to accept that he's destined to live in the heat of battle as long as he lives. In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'', when Paz asks Big Boss about his thoughts on peace he says flat out that he doesn't know what peace looks like, and in an odd way the battlefield itself brings him a type of peace that "real peace" could never satisfy. By the time he fights Snake in [[VideoGame/MetalGear2SolidSnake Zanzibar Land]], his stance has become progressively worse as he claims that it's his fate to die bitterly like a dog on the battlefield. He goes so far as to say that nothing else matters to him; not money, not power, not even lust only war.

* Almost the entire population of Amonkhet in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering''. Amonkhet is a DaylightHorror take on [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Fantasy Ancient Egypt]] where death is not just accepted, it's actively sought after in difficult trials, with the worthy ''supposedly'' going to a bountiful afterlife; since the [[GodEmperor God-Pharaoh]] is Nicol Bolas this is somewhat unlikely. [[http://media.wizards.com/2017/dw466ytu5_akh/en_mqrKtwlFS3.png Oashra Cultivator]], for example, is a smiling gardener surrounded by flowers, who is casually talking about being "harvested".

->''One death has already been attributed to the Glow Cloud. But listen, it's probably nothing. If we had to shut down the town for every mysterious event that at least one death could be attributed to, we'd never have time to do anything, right?''

* In ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'', both sides in the Azanian War believe this to be true of the other:
** Azania is a high-tech LadyLand that has perfected HomosexualReproduction by cloning and embryonal life-support machinery, freeing its population from physical motherhood and relations with men. They consider themselves an emancipated and enlightened culture; to their enemies, this is an unnatural and abominable cavalcade of horrors, and something only people brainwashed by a fanatical totalitarian state could possibly live with.
** The Northern Confederation is a self-consciously reactionary state of hard-right libertarians, Christian fundamentalists and borderline Luddites, who enforce late-19th century social conventions in their society (including female domesticity and modesty). They consider themselves upright, Godly and above all, ''natural''; their enemies see their female citizens as horribly oppressed, and believe women will submit to such slavery only when subjected to mind-destroying abuse by men.
