* ''FanFic/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell'': Not so much as icy as stoic, Captain General Gentle Step starts to show a lot more emotion in the sequel ''Picking Up the Pieces'' when she's around Memorizing Gaze.

Added DiffLines:

* When Nabiki talks about what was revealed about Ranma's romantic issues in ''[[FanFic/ImperialServant]]'', she starts crying. This is interesting because at the time, she was under the effects of a 'Zone of Truth', implying her normal Ice Queen demeanor isn't who she really is.

* Weiss Schnee in ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' tries hard to act cold and dignified, but has enough NotSoAboveItAll moments for it to be clear that this is just a facade. In season 2 she starts hamming it up along with her teammates a bit more, and is making an effort to be more outgoing and kind. The moment she entered this trope was when Professor Port induces a BreakTheHaughty moment on Weiss, getting her to stop thinking she's hot stuff and give Ruby a chance. The very next scene is of her giving Ruby some coffee so she can study more then confiding in her that she wanted bunk beds as a kid.

** In Volume 2 she starts hamming it up along with her teammates a bit more, and is making an effort to be more outgoing and kind.
** By Volume 3, Weiss has practically become a different person entirely. When Yang is [[spoiler:framed for assault by Emerald and Mercury]], ''she'' is the one who speaks out most in her defence, [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome against]] [[FourStarBadass General Ironwood]] no less. She also seems to have overcome her past animosity with Blake, inviting her for coffee.

''She'' is ''the'' IceQueen: cool, reserved, and giving nothing away. She may want love as ardently as anyone, but she masks her soft heart behind a wall of ice. It is up to her LoveInterest to soften her cold demeanor and win her love. (Substitute "Ice King" if more applicable.)

* Ben becomes a non-romantic example in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse''; when assigned a new alien NaiveButSkilled partner named Rook, he is initially unwilling to accept and would rather work alone; as the story goes on, however, he does befriends it. He actually lampshades it in the form of Rath in "It Was Them".

** Astrid is an Ice Queen via being both a battle-ready ActionGirl and looking down at the protagonist as a useless, bumbling sap. She gets better, of course.
** Toothless could count too, since he was wary of and didn't like Hiccup very much in the beginning. [[spoiler: He eventually grew attached to Hiccup and become [[PapaWolf fiercely protective]] of him.]]

* Nick from ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'' acts this way in the beginning. The only thing he believes he has in common with the other survivors is they they are caught up in the zombie outbreak together. He planned to quickly ditch the survivors as soon as he could and he even degrades them occasionally, such as calling Jimmy Gibbs Jr. (Coach and Ellis' hero in stock car racing) an asshole or making fun of Ellis' accent and branding him with the stereotype of southerners ("You can almost call this the cement river, Ellis!"). As the survivors progress in the campaigns, Nick starts to warm up to them, though is still sarcastic most of the time. When Ellis dies, Nick softens up even further by saying "Remember all those things I said about you, Ellis? I was only joking..."
