* In ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', when they find the body of a man who was raped, and then killed by cutting off his tongue, Ren is shocked at the lack of reaction from the soldiers who accompany her. It's not unreasonable to assume that they have seen worse, it comes with the job, and there seems to have been a bandit problem for a long time.

* The 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.

* In LoisMcMasterBujold's book ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Mirror Dance]]'', the clone Lily Jr. knows and agrees with the notion of being killed to give "my lady" a full body transplant.
* Cowslip's warren in ''WatershipDown'' is managed by a human. In return for a daily delivery of garden scraps and the shooting of predators, the rabbits all pretend not to know that the area is full of snares and have convinced themselves that rabbits must await death with dignity and stoicism. The protagonists escape, taking a DefectorFromDecadence along with them.

* The 'Jaded' Trait in ''DarkHeresy'' indicates a character whose life has been so dark and crappy that they've become entirely immune to fear and SanityMeter hits from 'mundane' horrors that have a natural explanation (such as, say, a very grisly murder scene; seeing an EldritchAbomination in the flesh will still hurt your psyche). There are several character backgrounds that makes your character start with this trait, from being Mind-Wiped to hailing from Volg Hive, a place so violent, dirty and low-down that it basically serves as a garbage pit you throw people too savage to live in a WretchedHive in.

* The [[CityOfWeirdos entire populace of Camden County]] on ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'' is this. Earl's reaction to a suicidal man jumping into a pool is simply "I'll get the hook." No one is concerned that both the richest man in town and his successor are total maniacs. The whole reason that Ernie the owner of the [[MyLocal Crab Shack]] went missing was because [[spoiler: nobody thought a doorstop that looked like a nose was unusual, so nobody realized it belonged to Ernie's dead body buried under the cement]].

* [[DarkMagicalGirl Fate Testarossa]] in the first season of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' seemed to genuinely believe that [[EvilMatriarch her mother's]] abuse of her was a good enough substitute for parental affection, because she has never actually experienced the latter ([[spoiler:other than in Alicia's memories]]). So much, she even defended her mother's actions to her familiar Arf.
