* The Ghosts in ''Manga/SgtFrog'' aren’t 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.

-->You don’t have to be Sun freakin Tzu to know that real fighting isn’t about killing or even hurting the other guy, it’s about scaring him enough to call it a day. ...“[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shock_and_awe Shock and Awe]]”? Perfect name, “Shock and Awe”! But what if the enemy can’t be shocked and awed? Not just ''won’t'', but biologically ''can’t?'' That’s what happened that day outside UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity, that’s the failure that almost lost us the whole damn war. The fact that we couldn’t shock and awe [[NotUsingTheZWord Zack]] boomeranged right back in our faces and actually allowed Zack to shock and awe us! They’re not afraid! No matter what we do, no matter how many we kill, they will never, ever be afraid!

** Especially considering that skeletons cannot be recovered to lairs by imps, so dying means they are LostForever, and that with no need to eat or sleep, they will usually spend all their time training - which costs gold.

* 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 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.

* 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.

* 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.
