** Crump's incredibly high tolerance for dangerous conduct and general disregard for his own life is not only a family trait, but undoubtedly stems from his [[AxCrazy Ax Craziness]] and love of grenades wich he gleefully demonstrates in ''Literature/TheBonehunters''.

*** Made into an episode of ''FaerieTaleTheatre'' that culminated with the kid almost being brutally murdered by evil undead sorcerer Creator/ChristopherLee. That ought to clear things up for him.

--> '''Old Warmage''': "Now she's bound the numberless horde to her will and returns to teach the Order harsh lessons in humility and subservience. But she's in for a surprise; I'm reasonably sure my apprentice is unteachable"
** The Old Warmage shows a bit of grudging respect for his Apprentice in the end, admitting that the Apprentice was the only member of the Order brave enough, or foolish enough, [[spoiler:to sacrifice magic to save the world.]]
* In ''VideoGame/MedievalIITotalWar'' this is brought up in a generals speech, where he describes anyone who is genuinely not afraid before a battle as a "moon-struck fool."

* The eponymous Kerbals of ''VideoGame/KerbalSpaceProgram'' are fearless enough to want to go to space, and foolish enough to fly there in the spacecraft you built. Special mention goes to Jebediah Kerman, Valentina Kerman, and any random 10% of the white-suit Kerbals, all of whom bear a hidden "BadS=true" attribute - these men and women will ''never'' show any trepidation about the craft, its [[MadeOfExplodium current]] [[StuffBlowingUp explodiness]] or trajectory, and wear their same gleeful smiles all the way to whatever landing awaits them. Jebediah's Steam trading card [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this perfectly.

** As seen in the page image, Kamina's EstablishingCharacterMoment involves him challenging a HumongousMecha to a fight while armed with nothing but a katana. [[spoiler:Played with later on, when he confides in Yoko that he knew exactly how stupid he was being at the time, but did it anyway in order to inspire [[CowardlyLion Simon]].]]

* ''Videogame/MonsterHunter'': Part of the reason why the Great Jaggi and the smaller Jaggis that accompany it are the series ButtMonkey is a combination of this, BullyingADragon, and TooDumbToLive. To elaborate, it has a tendency to pick fights they can't win, even in large numbers. This contrasts the GreatMaccao, it's replacement in ''Generations'' which is a DirtyCoward that tends to avoid any real danger.

** In ''The Book of Atrix Wolfe'', they send off Saro to deliver the tray of food to the prince in his half-ruined and haunted towers, on the grounds she wouldn't understand it enough to be afraid.

* Batman in ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' initially has no fear of death, which he thinks gives him power but is in fact why he can't find the motivation to escape Bane's prison. He needs to find something to be afraid of or he'll be useless. Bane points this out by saying, "You don't fear death. You welcome it. Your punishment must be more ''severe''."
