** Two-parter episode ''The Sandstorm'' [[FridgeHorror hints]] that Night Vale's seemingly pleasant and cheerful rival city Desert Bluffs might actually be even worse, both in terms of horror and in terms of their acceptance of it.

* Played with in regards to Camilla. Out of all the Nohrian siblings, she's widely seen as the most well-adjusted to death and violence, switching between battlefields and home-life with striking ease. However, Camilla actually seems a bit less well-adjusted to such things than Leo is, given that she expresses unease with Keaton's collection of human bones from a burial ground, whereas Leo seems to be very much at ease with graves, [[spoiler:if his choosing one as a battlefield in ''Birthright'' is any indication]]. She also isn't entirely beyond being stunned, given the shock she expressed at [[spoiler:how brutally Hans executed Scarlet off-screen in ''Conquest'']].

* Professionals as well rely on this as a coping mechanism. Soldiers, police officers, paramedics, firefighters, you name it, often fall into this either by jokingly evoking it to poke fun at crappy taskings or exercises, or seriously relying on it to [[TearJerker deal with actual horrors they experience]].

* ''WebVideo/TheMusicVideoShow'' had some spades of this. In [[https://youtu.be/PiWRiFz_fGM Episode 3]], the host was scared of the stop motion, smaller version of Music/SouljaBoy due to its [[Main/UncannyValley Uncanny Valley]] attributes. Cut to the Big Bad Wolf [[https://youtu.be/DL8OTb0w0ho episode]] and the [[Main/NightmareFuel Nightmare Fuel]] in the music video. [[spoiler:Averted in the Final Thoughts...maybe]]
--> "So this is what a midlife crisis feels like..."

* ''Manga/Overlord2012'':
** Victim, the eight floor guardian is a weird critter resembling a floating fetus with a halo and a cutesy voice, whose shtick is that when he dies (and he's purposefully easy to kill), the invaders are hit with all sorts of horrible status debuffs. This was all well and good when he was just an NPC, but now that he's an actual sentient being he's downright ''eager'' to be killed in defense of Nazarick, no matter how much Ainz apologizes and promises to resurrect him afterwards.
** Tsuare was forced to work as a prostitute in a brothel that throws the girls out when they're used up and caters to clients who like getting violent. When Sebas rescues her despite orders not to get noticed, Ainz decides to ensure that Sebas' loyalty is unchanged and orders him to kill her. She's so happy that he rescued her from that hellhole that she smiles at him and shows no resistance as he prepares to kill her in a single punch. [[spoiler:Fortunately Cocytus blocks the punch, allowing him to determine that Sebas had every intention of killing Tsuare as ordered.]] This reassures the other guardians that Sebas isn't going rogue, and the matter is dropped [[spoiler:and Tsuare is allowed to live at Nazarick as a maid.]]

* ''WebVideo/DaisyBrown'''s first video shows her casually illustrating how she feeds Alan, a BodyHorror monstrosity made by [[MadScientist her father]]. Her third video has her explain she didn't realize that monsters weren't exactly commonplace, hence her calm demeanor around Alan. For the most part, his weirdness doesn't really affect her. [[spoiler:Well, until he starts growing, at least.]]

** Leo is even more of this trope; unlike Camilla, he has no qualms against executing his enemies in cold blood, rather than in the heat of battle. Also, while Camilla [[spoiler:is creeped out by the fact that Keaton stole human bones from a burial ground for his collection]], Leo is perfectly fine spending time in burial grounds, even [[spoiler:choosing one as a battleground in ''Birthright'']].

* ''WebComic/{{Erma}}'': Having grown used to the various horrifying things that Erma either does or attracts, many of the characters present (her classmates, her neighbors, her babysitter, etc.) usually shrug off the many unnatural things that occur without incident. This is even used as a plot-point when [[spoiler:the existence of rat-people is revealed to the school]], everyone [[SeenItAll already having been inoculated to the weirdness of the situation]].
