* 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".

* ''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.
