* Pubert Addams in ''[[Film/TheAddamsFamily Addams Family Values]]'' has a number of things happen to him that would terrify a normal baby while he laughs and coos. Justified in this instance, though, because he's an [[NightmareFetishist Addams]].

* Behavioural scientists have conducted experiments into depth perception in crawling infants. The child is placed at one end of a perspex tunnel which is supported at both ends but clearly (to adults) spanning a three or four foot drop. The child's mother stands at the far end calling the child to her. The question is whether or not the baby will crawl out over apprently empty space to get to Mummy. Practically every baby tested would.

* Cub from ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends''. Unlike most examples of this trope, however, he can and usually does die from the dangers he's put in.

* Somewhat deconstructed in Fanfic/Gensokyo20XX in that an age-regressed Reimu was conditioned that way. In being conditioned that way, her sense of danger was also removed, as she doesn't even respond to pain and barely responds to being startled. Needless to say, this sort of thing was present as a hazard and it is.

**In ''Foundling'', this is justified as she hasn't learned to fear anything out of the ordinary, thus she is perfectly fine when sitting amongst a group of youkai.

*** Subverted a moment later when Voldemort tires to kill him and fails. Harry starts to cry and Voldemort flees because he can't stand the noise.

** Though PlayedWith in that same scene: once he's safe in his mother's hands, he's cooing again, even as a fiery explosion occurs right above him. ("Look at Mommy," Helen says, despite Jack-Jack's clear indifference.)

** Made explicit in the final book, where we get a flashback of that night from [[BigBad Voldemort]]'s point of view--after he casually kills Harry's mother, Harry simply stands up in his crib, giggling. Voldemort muses that Harry obviously has no idea what's going on--he expects Mum will get off the floor in a moment, and probably assumes Voldemort (who's wearing a hood) is just his father come to play one last game before bedtime.
