* Mischa from ''Anime/{{Endride}}'' is a [[{{Tykebomb child assassin]] who was brainwashed not to have emotions in order to turn her into a better killing machine. Even after being [[DefusingTheTykebomb defused]], she barely displays more emotion than quiet jealousy and mistrust.

** 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, as, if she cannot express them well, then there isn't a purpose in feeling them, almost invoking this trope more directly. In short, she would much rather be emotionless and not to feel emotions vs not being able to express them.

When she finally does feel her emotions, it's [[spoiler: when she's dying and its also when she cries]].

** This troper has especially seen it with high functioning/low verbal spectrum kids; the struggle to turn thoughts into actual speech can be overwhelmingly difficult and leave them with "blank" as their chief expression. In some cases, expressions can be mimicked along with appropriate response phrases - quite disconcerting when they go from blank to super expressive and back to blank again. Or when the expression and phrase don't quite match the situation. It's not that these kids don't feel emotions, they just don't process or display them like the neurotypical.

* Kyouko Kirigiri of VisualNovel/DanganRonpa has a calm voice and blank face at almost all times. She mentions, if the player decides to get to know her better, that she actually intentionally evokes this image, as it both makes her hard to read and gives other people someone to lean on in times of emotional stress.
