* This is part of the difference between the Crystal and Homeworld Gems in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. The Crystal Gems follow Rose's belief about the importance and power of love, while the Homeworld Gems are taught to follow logic and rationality to advance the interests of the Diamonds and the Gem Empire. [[spoiler:This leads to Peridot defecting to the Crystal Gems when, after spending enough time on Earth to reconsider her initial impression of it, decided that destroying it for the sake of the Cluster despite the resources it could offer, and contacts Yellow Diamond to explain her conclusions. Peridot's worldview is then shattered when Yellow Diamond refuses to listen and insists that the Earth be destroyed anyways, causing Peridot to insult her and Yellow Diamond to try and kill her by detonating the communications device Peridot was using]].

* The two main attorneys of ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' exemplify this. Defense lawyer Phoenix Wright goes into every case armed with little more than his heartfelt belief in his client's innocence. His rival, prosecutor Miles Edgeworth, is calm, logical, and believes in saying the truth, no matter how unpleasant. It's made clear over the course of the games that both approaches bring a certain clarity and a certain blindness, and that the two of them get better results together than either one would alone.

The TropeMaker is the Hellenistic Greeks' philosophy of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoicism Stoicism,]] although they did not encourage self-denial so much as but abolishing the source of desire entirely, something that is also the goal of Buddhism - the quintessential Stoic did not at all lack emotions, much to the opposite, but rather endeavored not to be driven by their emotions (feel sadness but not grief, feel pleasure but not become addicted to it, etc). It also loosely correlates with the Bible's teachings of controlling the "flesh", which usually involves controlling ones' emotions and urges.

Despite what [[StrawVulcan Captain Emotion and the Emotioneers]] would have you believe, being [[TheMcCoy emotional and caring]] is not [[LightIsNotGood in and of itself a good thing.]] In fact, the more emotional and less self controlled a character, [[PassionIsEvil the more likely they are to fall]] to TheDarkSide. Conversely, the more [[TheStoic stoic]], [[TheSpock composed]], and self-denying a character the more likely they are to be good and in line with TheForce.

* The Dunyain from R. Scott Bakker's SecondApocalypse books are major stoics, literally. They were heavily based on the ideas of Greek Stoicism and the concept of the Sage. This contrasts with the Cishaurim whose powers are derived from passion.

* ''Anime/GGundam'' has Domon Kasshu, who hits both sides of this trope. Normally very HotBlooded, he manages to activate his SuperMode out of sheer rage and becomes TheBerserker, resulting in him [[NiceJobBreakingItHero unintentionally donating energy to the Devil Gundam]]. [[McNinja Schwarz Bruder]] then trains him in the art of Meikyo Shisui,[[note]]"Clear Mirror, Still Water", dubbed as "Clear Tranquility",[[/note]] which activates his True Super Mode and lets him get past his anger. He's still HotBlooded, he's just not a total rageaholic anymore.

* This is a central core of the premise of ''ComicBooks/TheHulk''. Bruce Banner lived much of his life as a stoic scientist who avoided clear display of emotion. When exposed to gamma rays though, he tends to transform into The Hulk, who's basically raw, unprocessed emotion in its purest form. Writers will play around with the concept; Banner is a scientist and helpful, but some writers will point out he was building weapons of mass destruction before being transformed, or otherwise portray him like an asshole. The Hulk is a GentleGiant who ultimately doesn't go out and start fights, but at the same time is incredibly destructive and impossible to control once he gets going.
