* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': In the episode “[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E2AllBottledUp All Bottled Up]]”, after Trixie accidentally teleports Twilight’s enchanted map table to who knows where and spends most of the episode making light of it despite the potential for it to get Starlight into a great deal of trouble, Starlight deals with her mounting anger with Trixie by magically siphoning off her negative emotions into a bottle whenever it seems like she might lose control. This works fine, until the bottle breaks.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', [[spoiler: Sanji's brothers Ichiji, Niji and Yonji had their ability to feel and understand empathy surgically removed by their AbusiveParent Judge ''while in utero'', [[TykeBomb so he could weaponize them]]. They mother Sora took a gene modification-reversing drug to save her sons, but for some reason the drug only worked on Sanji. The other three have just a tiny shred of humanity left, which up until now has only showed once: when the three guys [[EvenEvilHasStandards freaked out]] over [[EvilMatriarch Big Mom]]'s [[AndIMustScream "living library"]].]]

This is part of the basis of {{The Stoic}} and the {{Emotionless Girl}}, {{Ice Queen}} and {{The Quiet One}} characters, {{The Baroness}}, the {{Deadpan Snarker}} (and {{Little Miss Snarker}}), the {{Broken Bird}}, the SugarAndIcePersonality and the {{Aloof Big Brother}}. Compare and contrast GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul or {{Lotus Eater Machine}}: EmotionSuppression does ''not'' make you happy, it just makes you, well, emotionless or lets you get rid of certain emotions.

*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Ordercrafters face this as an occupational hazard because the source of their power, Order, is a god without emotion. The longer they are ordercrafters and the more they use their power, the more their emotions are suppressed until they can't feel anything at all. They have ways of managing this, such as aid from a chaotic deity.

* To deal with her life, Maika from {{Monstress}} appears to experience no emotions besides hunger and rage. It's unclear - even to her - whether her other emotions are gone or just suppressed.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', Nico once magically stripped Klara of her emotions in an attempt to rein in her powers, which were going haywire as the result of Klara suffering a panic attack. in the short term, this worked out sort of okay, but in the long term, it turned Klara into even more of a nervous wreck.
* One arc of the "threeboot" ''ComicBook/LegionOfSuperheroes'' saw several of the Legionnaires trying to lead a RagtagBunchOfMisfits against a well-organized team of supervillains. In an effort to boost their chances, Saturn Girl used her powers to suppress the misfits' ability to feel fear.

* ''Literature/WeAreLegionWeAreBob'': Since most strong emotions come from glands, which are simulated for the replicants anyway, replicants are fitted with an endocrine suppressor program to keep them from feeling much more than "deep concern." Bob removes it soon after he leaves Sol, but turns it back on for battles.

* The society of the Grey Men from the ''Literature/TheStainlessSteelRat'' series by Creator/HarryHarrison includes indoctrinating their youth into being totally emotionless. In ''The Stainless Steel Rat Wants You!'', the hero finds the home planet of the Grey Men; he describes an eerily quiet classroom full of schoolchildren (no smiling, no laughter, no gum-chewing), with two posters on the wall reading "DO NOT SMILE" and "DO NOT FROWN".

* Mob from ''Manga/MobPsycho100'' suppresses his emotions to prevent his PsychicPowers from going haywire and hurting the people around him. When he first met Dimple, the latter mocked him for his stunted emotions until he couldn't hold back his Rage any longer and, well...
-->'''Mob''': They came out upon your request. [[SuperMode These are my emotions.]] [[CurbStompBattle This is what happens when I let them show.]]

* ''Series/TheMagicians2016'': Battle magic requires cold focus to be used reliably--without excessive training, it comes in fits and starts. However, hedge witches sometimes use a loophole: They literally bottle up their emotions, turning themselves into deadpan automatons but allowing them to easily use battle magic. The problem is that when you stop bottling up your emotions, you get hit with all of them at once, and it hits '''hard'''. The main characters end up collapsed in their rooms crying for hours.
