* ''Literature/CiaphasCain'' has the FramingDevice that they're Cain's memoirs, written while he's in retirement decades after the events he's describing have happened. Thus they're written in this rambling, detached manner, Cain sidetracking himself for whole paragraphs or recounting events that were terrifying at the time with his usual humour or {{Lovable Coward}}ice, regardless of whether he's describing the horrors of an [[BloodKnight Ork]] occupation, a pile of corpses sacrificed in a Chaos ritual surrounded by BrownNote-incuding sigils, or a colossal [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Tyranid swarm]] barreling towards a town. He drops this entirely however when during his expedition to a Necron Tomb World, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness which shows how much he still fears them]].

* As referenced above, Sir Creator/DavidAttenborough has a calm, soothing voice that make the most heart-rending scenes in a documentary less awful.

* A possible alternative name for this trope is "The DavidAttenborough Narration". Such a calm soothing voice, easing you through the violently graphic imagery of a seal being snatched from the beach and shredded by a killer whale.

* The narrator of ''PushingDaisies'' was voiced by Jim Dale. Every episode we would hear him describing creatively violent murders in dulcet English tones.

* {{Downplayed|Trope}} in ''Podcast/AliceIsntDead''. While the truck-driver {{Narrator}} is capable of displaying agitation and fear in her {{Captains Log}}s, she's remarkably coherent and relatively muted when describing horrifying paranormal events that occur both in the past and ''in real-time'' while she's driving, where panicked babbling or wordless screaming would be entirely understandable.

See also DissonantSerenity, RelaxOVision and DangerDeadpan. The effect may be similar to a CreepyMonotone if the dissonance between the voice and the description is stark enough.

* [[LetsPlay/ChaoticMonki Cryaotic]] has quite a voice, putting it to use in his "Cry Reads" series and several Let's Plays. [[MemeticMutation People who are new to his content almost always point this out.]]

* ''OldMansWar'' is similar, right down to the, well, old man. The aliens they fight each have their own unique way of being horrifying, but the narrator's matter-of-fact tone sees you through.
