** 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, almost invoking this trope more directly.

* People suffering from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aprosodia aprosodia]] are unable to convey emotions in their communication. They ''have'' emotions, they are simply having a hard time expressing them.
* In the same vein, there is a condition called alexithymia, which literally translates as 'to be without words for emotions'. An individual is either born with this trait, or acquires it (frequently as a result of an abusive upbringing).

--> "I can't feel anything. For as long as I can remember, I've never been able to feel emotions. I pretend to be normal when I'm around other people, but on the inside, I feel nothing. It's not as bad as it may sound. I know that I'm broken, but I don't care. This is normal for me. But everything changed when I met him... my Senpai."

* The intro for ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' has the VillainProtagonist explain that she's never experienced emotions before, up until she met her Senpai. At which point, she experienced love for the first time. She soon felt rage when she met Osana, the first rival. What she does next is up to the player and how they choose to eliminate the rivals.

* The "Imouto" Misakas in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' (except [[CheerfulChild Last Order]]). Because they were[[spoiler:produced in a lab for the sole purpose of being slaughtered]], they never learned how to express emotions, though it is clear that they do have them by the way they act.

* Ai Enma from ''Anime/HellGirl''. Subverted in that she ''does'' have emotions, but she must repress them to carry out her atonement for [[spoiler:the revenge she carried out on the villagers who buried her alive]]. Or else, she'll wind up in Hell. [[spoiler: We first see it when she snaps before Hajime towards the end of the first season, and it's not a nice sight to behold]].
* Tsukiko from LightNovel/HentaiOujiToWarawanaiNeko becomes this after she wishes she didn't show her emotions so easily and obviously. Her actual feelings about things remain unchanged, but she's literally unable to make any emotional reaction at all.

** Lutecia in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers''. Likely a result of [[MadScientist Jail's]] experiments and/or of growing up without her mother. She becomes more emotional by ''Manga/{{Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha ViVid}}''.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': Rei Ayanami was intended to be depicted as an emotionless, creepy child to deconstruct the YamatoNadeshiko archetype that many otaku seemed loving, showing that a person with that behaviour would be very disturbing in real life. Ironically, she became a fan favorite. Anyway, Rei displays emotions every so often. Much like the "Spock eyebrow", the subtle hint that Rei is actually having an emotional reaction is if she ''bothers to make eye contact'' with something, which she normally doesn't do.

* Cameron, the female [[Franchise/TheTerminator Terminator]] of ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles'' fits this quite accurately, though she is quite capable of ''simulating'' human emotions when she needs to. The rather sudden shift from emotionless blankness to a laughing, smiling teenage girl is....[[CreepyChild creepy.]]

* 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 pragmatism had its drawbacks in that she had shut her mind off to anything irrelevant to guarding the gate.
