* In ''Literature/ThePillarsOfReality'', the Mages teach their people to suppress all emotion (and indeed, that everything to which someone might emotionally reach is just an [[TheTreacheryOfImages irrelevant illusion]] anyway). Alain starts to lose this when he's forced to interact with someone outside his Guild, though he still remains TheStoic.

* This forcefully happens to Satoru Suzuki in ''LightNovel/{{Overlord}}'' when he becomes Momonga, his {{lich}} video game character, as the undead cannot feel emotions. This is both a good and a bad thing. While he does not feel emotions like fear, disgust or rage which could cloud his mind, he also [[LackOfEmpathy loses his empathy]] and becomes completely inhuman.

* ''Film/{{Equilibrium}}'' takes place in a society where everyone uses a drug called Prozium to suppress their emotions. Refusal to administer it is [[{{Dystopia}} punishable by death]]. [[spoiler:Hypocritically, the higher-ups don't take it and freely indulge their emotions and senses.]]

* A spell in the ''Literature/NightWatch'' 'verse has a temporary effect like this. Known as the Bureaucratic Rat, the spell creates a construct that seeks out the target (like a real rodent) and bites it. The bite temporarily disconnects the person from all emotions. Since the Others' magic is tied directly to their emotions, the bitten is unable to use magic for about an hour, until the effect wears off. As a side effect, the person also tends to indulge in SpockSpeak, hence the "bureaucratic" part of the name.

On the neutral side, Emotion Suppression is often portrayed as a form of PowerAtAPrice: a character's SuperPoweredEvilSide may demonstrate TranquilFury or take the [[PragmaticHero pragmatic]] approach to solving problems. Occasionally a hero must also remember that GoodIsNotSoft or [[GoodIsNotNice Nice]], and that they may be occasionally called upon to set aside their personal feelings ForTheGreaterGood when solving a ColdEquation.
