* In ''Fanfic/LiveAHero'', Izuku has long since been desensitized to most forms of pain. Even a gash extending down his entire arm barely makes him flinch. [[spoiler:This is because he watched his sister get brutally murdered right in front of him. He heard her scream as her bones were crushed and she was left dying [[DiesWideOpen with her eyes wide open.]] Compared to that, everything else, even after his body torn apart from the inside by having a Quirk forced on him, is nothing by comparison.]]

* ''VideoGame/GodOfWarPS4'': The Stranger was made nigh invulnerable by his mother, and any injuries he does take heal quickly. As a side effect, he cannot feel anything, which drove him insane. [[spoiler:He is the Norse God Balder. Just like in his legend, getting stabbed with mistletoe removes his invulnerability and returns his ability to feel. He becomes very happy to finally feel something, even pain when Kratos fights him.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfThomasCovenant:'' This is the primary effect of the titular character's leprosy. Modern medicine means that it won't kill him directly, but the damage it's already done to his nerves means that he has to live in a perpetual state of paranoia, constantly checking himself for injury. This is why he is so adamant that the Land cannot be real: If he allows himself to accept the healing the Land offers, he'll lose that protective paranoia, which will kill him when he returns to his original life.
* ''Literature/ScannersLiveInVain:'' In this story, deep space is flooded with a kind of radiation that causes debilitating pain in living creatures. In order to get around this, passengers are placed in cryogenic suspension for the trip. Ships are primarily crewed by "habermans", convicted criminals whose sensory nerves have been severed to render them immune to the pain... at the cost of causing them to lose all senses other than sight. Since it's not a good idea to leave murderers and rapists in sole charge of helpless passengers, the haberman crews are supervised by the titular Scanners, an elite body who ''volunteer'' to undergo the haberman process. While Scanners do have access to "cranching" technology, which temporarily restores the disabled senses, it is still a major sacrifice. Much of the story consists of the POV character meditating on what the Scanners have lost by the change.

* Asagami Fujino in the third ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' chapter/movie is insensitive to pain both physically and emotionally, though she keeps this a secret from everyone else so they don't think she's abnormal. She [[spoiler:has even been repeatedly raped by a gang]] because of her passivity and her unwillingness to tell anyone about her 'pain'. She starts getting her sensation back in fits after [[spoiler:one of the gang hits her with a baseball bat]]. The pain makes her feel more alive... and murderous. [[spoiler:[[BewareTheNiceOnes They]] [[KickTheSonOfABitch die]] [[BullyHunter messily]].]] It turns out that the lack of pain is the result of [[spoiler:her father medicating her as a child to seal her psychic powers before they got out of hand]], which has now backfired.

One disadvantage to not being able to feel pain is that [[spoiler:she doesn't even realize she has appendicitis, and would have eventually died from it if Shiki had not intervened.]]

** This applies to The Mayor, who used it to show off Mayor's NighInvulnerability apparently included this, given his own invulnerability. non-reaction to injuries such as getting stabbed or having ''his head sliced open.''

* Leprosy is such a debilitating disease because it destroys the nerve receptors, causing its victims to neglect injuries; in time, the wounds become infected to the point of needing amputation. But during the Crusades, armies actually exploited this phenomenon by offering men with leprosy were given a final chance to serve God and country. While "leprous crusaders" could still swing a sword, they couldn't feel injuries. This reputation as an ImplacableMan, even discounting the fact that just bleeding on their foes could cause an outbreak of one of the most feared diseases of the old world, made them TheDreaded in any battle where they appeared. The fictional character of Thomas Covenant exploits this concept.

* In ''Fanfic/Gensokyo20XX'', we have a subversion with Reimu, who can feel pain, although she may as well not feel not, seeing as she doesn't respond to it, at least mental wise. Justified, as she was conditioned that way, so she wouldn't really know to respond to pain and tends to ignore it, as the instinct to respond to pain stimuli was removed from her, so, unless someone called it to her attention somehow, she wouldn't respond to it. In that vein, she doesn't seem to respond to discomfort as well. This was changed in 20XXV, when she was kicked in the face and responded, causing her to fly into a rage and stab the perpetrator.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Hazel Rainart, one of the villains, has this as his semblance. He uses it to [[spoiler: inject [[AppliedPhlebotinum Dust crystals]] right into his arms for a power boost]]. As one other character points out, it doesn't stop him from ''taking'' damage, just feeling it.
