* [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Yuna]] subverts this trope when you find her in Bevelle. After the Mexican stand-off [[spoiler: where Seymour threatens to kill the party if Yuna doesn't calm down and marry him]] she threatens to [[spoiler: jump off a fucking huge precipice to her death]]. She gets her own way, but threatens to do it anyway, insisting [[spoiler: "I can fly."]] Okay, sure, crazy lady. As she [[spoiler: falls, she summons Valefor]], proving that her confidence and serenity was perfectly justified after all.

After Franchise/StarCraft: The Protoss never seem to get upset about anything, not units being under fire, not the Mexican stand-off [[spoiler: where Seymour threatens to kill the party if Yuna doesn't calm down and marry him]] she threatens to [[spoiler: jump off base coming under attack, not even a fucking huge precipice to her death]].

* In ''Fanfic/{{Infinity}}'', [[Franchise/LyricalNanoha Lindy]] invokes this after Fate is critically injured, mainly because she would terrify everybody with her seething MamaBear rage if she didn't. While she does manage to keep her emotions in check, she still ends up radiating a killing intent that scares poor Amy half to death.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmQhwfxfn7c This street interview]] about rules in Japan. It's mostly pretty standard stuff, but at the end, one of the girls casually states her support of the death penalty for murderers (her exact [translated] words: "...if you kill a person, you should die too.") with a chuckle and smile.

applies to medical personnel
Added DiffLines:
* No matter how disgusting a medical procedure may be, doctors and nurses are usually always calm about it; and have to be, as a single mistake in surgery or administering the wrong drug can go a long way.

* We have [[http://akaichounokoe.deviantart.com/art/I-didn-t-do-it-488759365 this picture]] of Amoridere, called [[BlatantLies ''I didn't do it...'']], which [[spoiler: has her covered in blood, holding a bloodied knife behind her back, and a covered dead body next to her, all while smiling]]. If it makes you feel better, she drew that when she was upset.

But what, when you see peace in the middle of horror? One is smiling -- not [[SlasherSmile viciously]], not [[PsychoticSmirk insanely]], not [[TheStoic stoicly]] -- but calm, gentle... seeming [[MeditationPowerup almost enlightened]] as they [[SlashedThroat slit throats]] left and right. They are the eye of the storm, the calm center of destruction and their serenity is [[UncannyValley so off]] that it's more terrifying than [[UnstoppableRage any fury]].
