* In ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'', trapped in [[EldritchLocation the Realm of Darkness]], that same darkness dampened Aqua's ability to feel her own heart. She remarks in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts0.2BirthBySleepAFragmentedPassage'' that, after ten years in the darkness, she couldn't remember the last time she felt her heart stir.
* In ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII'', both Lightning and Hope are now physically unable to feel emotion. This condition was forced on them by Bhunivelze so they could complete their mission without emotional hangups.

After TheReveal in ''Webcomic/{{Flipside}}'', [[spoiler: Maytag herself]] is shown to be this. The story of how she got this way since childhood, eventually learning to feign emotional reactions to fit in and deflect suspicion. Whether she's BecomingTheMask and developing genuine emotional bonds to people is currently (November 12, 2012) still being written.something not even she is sure of.
** The {{Creepy|Child}} EnfantTerrible Melter is a RareMaleExample, showing no emotion even when committing murder or kidnapping people for experimentation. Justified in that he's [[spoiler:an ArtificialHuman that the Thin Man created in an attempt to get into an area that's protected by a devastating EmotionBomb field]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Earlier in Season 1, Daenerys shows shades of this, which makes sense, given that she spent most of her life with Viserys in constant fear of 'waking the dragon', making it an impressive indicator of her psychological fortitude that she ''isn't'' a perpetually flinching ExtremeDoormat. She becomes much more assertive later on and is flamboyantly, openly emotional with her moods among her supporters.

* ''WebAnimation/{{Dreamscape}}'': Keela is an EmotionlessGirl mostly as a result of having her soul destroyed. She never really shows much of a reaction to anything.

* Nezumi in ''Broken Gate'' really seemed to have mastered suppressing her emotions in light of her situation, as examined in chapter 4, when it's noted that she lament doesn't feel painful (like it would for some), instead, it feels cold. It's to such an extent that she wished she could cry or, at least, shed tears, something to express her anguish in some way. Likewise, she hadn't felt cold in a long time, either, and is very detached from her own thoughts towards it. Naturally, her feeling lament for the first time made her realize how her pragmatism had its drawbacks in that she had shut her mind off to anything irrelevant to guarding the gate, her thoughts and feelings included, in which case she stopped feeling them.
** To some extent, six chapters afterwards, this becomes a bit more extreme, as when she starts to feel the aforementioned, she decides to, as the story put it, "destroy" that feeling and doesn't feel it again for the remainder of the chapter (a move called [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disaffectation disaffection]]). The reason as to why she does this was because she couldn't cry, thus, she refuses to allow herself to feel them once they come, as, if she cannot express them well, then there isn't a purpose in feeling them, almost invoking this trope more directly. In short, she would much rather be emotionless and not to feel emotions vs not being able to express them. When she finally does feel her emotions, it's [[spoiler: when she's dying and its also when she cries]].

* Maria de Alva in ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' is a sympathetic version, not so much weird or socially inept as simply quiet and reserved. It seems the [[DarkAndTroubledPast massive tragedies]] she has endured throughout her life have given her a sort of objective, philosophical way to view life that allows her to endure most anything with stoic calm.

* In ''Literature/RiverOfTeeth'', Adelia is always described as having a blank expression and cold eyes. Fittingly, she is a ruthless ProfessionalKiller. When at one point Archie catches her off-guard with a question, Adelia shows mild surprise and Archie notes how that's the first time she's seen Adelia show ''any'' emotion at all.
