* Harmon James from ''Film/ThePurgeElectionYear''. When assisting Minister Edwidge Owens with his annual Purge Mass, he seems almsot completely void of emotion, ''until'' he purges the first victim of the night, after which he seems a bit TOO excited, sharing a moment with Minister Owens. After this, however, he goes back to being completely stoic, even when bullets are flying around him.

* From ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': As an epic [[MobWar Mafia war]] unfolds on their front lawn, Marge urges Homer into the house, but he points out that the one of the ''{{Yakuza}}'' is [[StrollingThroughTheChaos just standing in the middle of the fighting]], arms crossed, not doing anything. "[[PintSizedPowerhouse The little guy hasn't done anything yet]]! [[GenreSavvy He's gonna do something, and you know it's gonna be good!]]" Homer still gets pushed inside, and immediately afterwards we hear the sounds of one loud karate yell, one connected blow, and about three bodies hitting the ground. Cue Homer's disappointed groan.

* Chiun from the book series ''TheDestroyer'' matches this. An 80 year old Korean man, he is calm and gentle... as he rips open throats and kills anyone who messes with him.

* Captain Tushin and Prince Bagration exhibited forms of Dissonant Serenity during the Battle of Schöngraben in ''WarAndPeace''. Captain Tushin might have briefly lapsed into PsychopathicManchild for his disturbing calm though.

* The Condesce and Grand Highblood in {{Fanfic/Hivefled}}. Which only serves to make them that much more disturbing.

* The Undertaker of ''WebAnimation/TheBackwaterGospel'' remains disturbingly calm throughout the entire film. He remains sitting in one spot through most of the film, and doesn't even flinch when [[spoiler:the whole town starts killing each other, even less so when the Minister points a gun at him]]. And at the end of it all, he slowly gets up, whistles an IronicNurseryRhyme, and starts measuring [[spoiler:the coffin-size for the nearest dead body]].

* In some works of the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse, Luke tends towards this. ''Literature/LukeSkywalkerAndTheShadowsOfMindor'' has a notable example; his voice in the midst of emergency is described as "preternaturally calm". Mara Jade directly points it out in ''[[TheThrawnTrilogy Heir to the Empire]]'', when he's been BroughtDownToNormal - no Force skills to draw on, no weapons, unknown hostile world, Imperials trying to find him, wild animals after him, and Mara herself [[CantKillYouStillNeedYou wanting him dead]], and far from being wired with adrenaline he's maddeningly serene to the point of ''being able to fall asleep'' - though he's still [[BroughtDownToBadass very quick-witted, observant, and far from helpless]].

* ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'': Crowley and especially Ferid have a friendly smile on their faces whenever they're committing atrocities. Ferid looks especially happy when he reminisces the times he killed Crowley's, Yuu's, and Mika's comrades and says [["ForTheEvulz It was fun!"]]
