* ''Series/BeingHuman'' often has the ghost character, Annie, reminding herself or others that she is a ghost and thus has no reason to be afraid of any physical danger.

Added DiffLines:

* Undead in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' are immune to all morale effects, including magical fear and attempts to demoralize them through intimidation. Intelligent undead are not blind to threats, and might well flee when FearIsTheAppropriateResponse, but it is a considered rather than an emotional reaction when they do.

* The Ghosts in ''KeroroGunsou'' arenít particularly shocked when they come across the alien frogs. In one case, they come across the spirit of a dead pilot and the wreck of his plane, and they just sit down and make pleasant conversation for the rest of the night.

* The Cauldron-Born in Lloyd Alexander's ''PrydainChronicles'' have no emotions at all, including fear.
* The High Seekers in the ''NovelsOfTheChange'' are an odd case. When they are killed, they are possessed by a fearless dark power until such time as the bodies are no longer useful - but then, when they're alive, they're possessed pretty regularly too, to similar results.

* On ''DeadliestWarrior'', this was actually listed as an X Factor in the Vampires vs. Zombies episode. [[spoiler: The Zombies received the higher number due to being physically incapable of fear (unlike vampires).]]

* Averted in ''{{Exalted}}'', where the undead have fear normally (although Mindless Necrotech automatons don't). Abyssal exalted have fear and so on too, but the virtues (including Valour) are warped by their association with the Neverborn.

* In ''{{GURPS}}'', the templates for most undead include Unfazeable and Indomitable, making them disregard all reaction rolls and fear effects.
* Referenced in ''MagicTheGathering'', where several Black creatures cannot be blocked except by Black and Artifact creatures, defined in the flavour text as fear-based.

** This trope is taken even further in {{Warhammer}} where the undead mooks don't feel anything at all (including fear). No emotions means the Chaos gods can't control them, which is why one WellIntentionedExtremist vampire count's plan was to convert the entire world population into zobies, starving the Ruinous Powers. Strangely enough, most people not even associated with Chaos objected to this plan.

* [[NoNameGiven The zombie]] in ''Webcomic/HannaIsNotABoysName'' has a touch of this ability: he's infamously cool headed and very little can scare or shake him.

* MSF High Forums: Leanne the Chibi Vampire. Apparently, undeath keeps the worst of her [[IllGirl health issues]] at bay, the reason being that it means her most of her flawed organs don't need to work at all.

* Averted in DawnOfWar, where the Necrons have morale bars like everyone else, and become less effective in combat if broken (except the Pariahs, who are immune). The in-game explanation is that while they don't feel fear, they can still recognize when the situation is against them, and when to run and regroup.

* ''DungeonsAndDragons'', to a varying degree in different editions. Undead are typically immune to all fear spells, and if morale is a factor, undead are unshakable. The only thing that will set undead running for the hills is holy power, such as that unleashed by the Cleric's ability to TurnUndead.

* Reg Shoe and many other undead from ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'', along with the Igors.
** Although if ''Discworld/NightWatch'' is any indication, he was pretty fearless while alive, too.
** He does lampshade this idea in Discworld/{{Jingo}} though. Just because the ship sinking doesn't ''kill'' him doesn't mean he's not worried by it. Especially if a shark decides to eat him.

* In ''Literature/TheDeathGateCycle'', there are two kinds of undead--Cadavers (which are nearly mindless) and lazar (which are sentient). Both are completely fearless--cadavers because they are barely aware of what's going on around them, and lazar because they are aware of the agony of their undead condition and know for a fact that nothing is worse. Fireballs, sword thrusts, decapitation, arrows through the heart--none of it matters to something that's that far beyond our meager understanding of "pain".
** The cadavers aren't exactly mindless, their minds have just gotten stuck to the moment of their death, and they can't learn anything new, and are inclined to return to whatever they were doing just before their death, unless somebody constantly keeps an eye on them. They're essentially dementia patients taken up to eleven.
