* The ''Franchise/DragonAge'' series has "the Tranquil": mages who have been entirely cut off from the Fade in order to prevent demonic possession. However, this not only robs them of their use of magic but also renders them entirely emotionless. Tranquil retain their memories of their former selves and remain independent thinkers, but they lack any form of emotional response whatsoever, not only stuff like happiness or fear but even boredom. Reactions in-game are mixed. Some characters are horrified by the procedure. Others consider that if the alternatives were demonic possession or execution, becoming Tranquil was a preferable alternative. Asking the Tranquil themselves what they think gets the predictable response that they don't mind what they've become, but by definition the state they are in renders that answer meaningless.

* A positive example in ''WebAnimiation/{{RWBY}}''. Ren's Semblance temporarily calms the negative emotions of himself and anyone he happens to be touching. Since [[AnimalisticAbomination the Grimm]] are attracted to such emotions, they are unable to sense him while it is active, even if they're looking straight at him.

* The ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' episode "Chuck vs the Tic Tac" revolves around an emotion-suppressing pill called the Laudenol, which military soldiers used to take to be stronger warriors in battle. Casey was blackmailed into delivering it to his former commanding offer to save the life of his ex-fiancée. Towards the end of the episode, Chuck swallows the pill and it unleashes the full power of the Intersect (due to Chuck's feelings always getting in the way) allowing him to dispatch an entire army of goons in less than a few seconds.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Fairly Odd Parents}}'', Timmy wishes to have emotions removed and stored in a box. This effectively makes him completely fearless and popular, until he realizes that it's not so great if you don't have any emotions to enjoy it with.

* ''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"]].]]
