* In ''WarmBodies'', it is inverted where it is the protagonists' passion for life (whether zombie or human) is what gives them the power to change the world while the antagonists' stoicism dooms them.

* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTensei'': This trope is yet another angle to the [[LawfulEvil Law]] Vs. [[ChaoticEvil Chaos]] conflict. ([[CaptainObvious No prizes for guessing which alignment takes which side of this conflict]].) Also a meta-aversion: the games are ''very'' critical of any ideology that favors either Emotions OR Stoicism to the exclusion of the other.

* ''Film/GatesOfHeaven'': A theme of the first part of the film when Floyd [=McClure=] the tender-hearted pet cemetery operator is contrasted with the practical, no-nonsense manager of the animal rendering plant. The normally avuncular Floyd grows positively enraged when he talks about how the corpses of animals are mangled and processed into tallow and the like. The rendering manager says that he makes a useful product and renders a useful service, especially when you have a horse die on the weekend and it's 102 degrees outside.

* In the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' setting ''{{Eberron}}'' there's "The Fury", goddess of passion in the complementary Sovereign Host and Dark Six pantheons. Guess which side ''she's'' on.

The downsides of extreme Stoicism are LackOfEmpathy and [[CreativeSterility inability]] to act outside [[KnightTemplar personal code]]. A [[TheUnfettered completely composed]] Stoic runs the risk of not letting ''any'' human considerations weigh on their judgement if they are [[ExtremeDoormat capable of any independent action at all]]. In extreme cases it may lead to complete [[TheSlacker lack of motivation outside basic needs]] and [[TheSociopath disregard towards human life]].

However, there is a downside to extreme Stoicism: a [[ExtremeDoormat lack of drive]] and at times [[WellIntentionedExtremist a worrying]] LackOfEmpathy. A [[TheUnfettered completely composed]] Stoic runs the risk of not letting ''any'' human considerations weigh on their judgement. Essentially, without a bit of emotion to anchor them, the character may well float off into unreachable heights.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' there are the Chaos Gods, hellish demons that embody (and are actually created by) the emotions of the sentient beings in the galaxy. All manner of cults and religions do unspeakable acts fueled by zealous fervor because it's part of their dogmas and faiths. [[MessianicArchetype The Messiah]], which practically all of humanity worship with the same zeal, [[{{Irony}} on the other hand, was a proponent of science, logic, and atheism.]]
