* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'': When he's disposing of common thugs, Spike is absolutely nonchalant in his violence, making pummeling strikes and kicks look more like someone's morning stretches. This is in spite of gunshots and death threats being slung his way all the while. Against a more formidable foe, though, he gets more serious.

* Takaya of ''{{Persona 3}}''.

to:

* Takaya of ''{{Persona ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}''.



*** The protagonist of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', as well, especially with Yosuke (and Chie in the [[Anime/Persona4TheAnimation anime]]) freaking out over the appearance of the Shadows.
*** In fact, he is almost always so calm, he can get thrown into a waterfall and doesn't even blink or even be bothered to move his body to break the fall

* While not the one perpetrating the violence, as seen [[http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd82/Sangaz/snapshot20090914174535.jpg here]], Oora of ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' is such a massive space cadet that she can calmly sit down in the aftermath of one of Chiri's rampages and never drops her permanent vacant smile.

* Hao Asakura from ''ShamanKing''. Oh, dear god, HAO. He has quite a reputation for having that cheery smile on his face as he slaughters countless lives, especially lesser Shamans, including but not limited to almost all of the "pathetic" X-Laws. He even has his serenity when he does worse to Yoh [[spoiler:by pulling out his soul and eating it in the fourth-to-last episode of the anime]].

** Series 6 offers both the Antibodies ("You will experience a tingling sensation and then death") and the robots in the Two Streams hospital ("This is a kindness.") Basically, evil robots in the Franchise/{{Whoniverse}} are either absolute monotone or this. No, the Daleks don't count, they're not robots.

* ''Webcomic/Lackadaisy'': In one disconnected strip, [[FourEyesZeroSoul Mordecai]] and [[TheMuscle Viktor]] are shown to have this immediately after killing a room full of rival gangbangers. Mordecai seems completely unfazed by it, while Viktor is at least managing surprise that the fight happened. Viktor only becomes disturbed at Mordecai's complete indifference, and his failed attempts at coming up with a more feasible emotional response. In general, Mordecai has this approach to his more violent work, while Viktor's lack of response is more due to being perpetually grumpy.

** Joker himself. Well, at least in ''Videogame/MassEffect1'', he's dead calm when doing the impossible (with everything on the line). In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', he's more laid back in such situations, though still pretty stoic.

In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', he's more laid back in such situations, though still pretty stoic. Justified in that, as a pilot, he's trained to maintain emotional self-control and rational thought in intense situations.

* The radio host Cecil from ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'' is usually relaxed and cheerful as he describes attacks by {{Eldritch Abomination}}s and the activities of the local [[ParanoiaFuel Secret Police]] who are spying on everyone. When he loses his cool, it means something's happened that's messed up even for Night Vale.
