* Trolls in the {{Mystara}} setting Feel No Pain in addition to traditional [[AllTrollsAreDifferent D&D-trollish]] HealingFactor. The combination has led them to develop a fondness for games in which participants toss their own or others' severed arms, legs and heads around.

* Zombies in ''AllFleshMustBeEaten'' who have the Senses trait "Like The Dead" don't feel pain. "Like The Living" or better gives them that quality back - even though they don't suffer real damage from heavy blows, it ''feels'' like it, and thus they lose their next action if they take significant injury from a single attack. The sourcebook ''Atlas of the Living Dead'' adds the Feel No Pain quality, which removes that drawback from the higher Senses traits, allowing for zombies with incredible perception and a complete lack of concern about injury. * Tortogs in the ''DragonMech'' setting only really feel pain when something punches through their shell. It's what makes them great smugglers - when night is virtually guaranteed to bring anything from a stinging micrometeorite hail to a full-on orbital strike, you don't need speed to get around - you need durability, and tortogs are ''good'' at durability.

* Subverted in ''Series/{{Heroes}}'': given Claire's penchant for mangling her body for the flimsiest reasons (*cough* garbage disposal *cough*), you'd think she doesn't feel pain. However, in her own words, she feels pain: she's just learned to endure it get over it quickly. This is also believed to be a trait of Wolverine.

* Played for laughs in ''Film/YouDontMessWithTheZohan'', where [[{{Badass}} Zohan]] and [[EvilCounterpart the Phantom]] try to outdo each other while saying "No, no, no. ''I'' feel no pain!" The Phantom sticks a piranha on his cheek while laughing. Zohan grabs the piranha and sticks it down his shorts while looking bored.

* ''FanFic/{{Webwork}}'': Eight years in [[EldritchLocation the Emptiness]], most of which was spent undergoing a [[SlowTransformation slow]], BodyHorror-inducing PainfulTransformation, means that [[FallenHero Jade's]] pain threshold has gone through the roof. She's now able to shrug off direct hits from chi blasts, and even the [[AchillesHeel traditional Oni weakness to onions]] has no effect on her.

** It's called peripheral neuropathy, and it's a common feature of type 2 diabetes. Combined with reduced circulation, small wounds on the feet frequently lead to a downhill slide which begins with small injuries going unnoticed, turning into gangrene, leading to amputations, which prevents excercise because the patient isn't really very mobile anymore, but they still eat the same as they did before, they gain weight, the condition advances, they get another injury which goes unnoticed, gangrene sets in, repeat until dead. In some smaller communities in the US, particularly in the South and Southwest, a diagnosis of adult-onset diabetes is essentially terminal - because so few will will change their diet or watch their blood sugar levels, they will very frequently enter this downhill slide, and be dead within five years.

* In ''Fanfic/TheBridge'', Enjin seems to not feel pain. He doesn't give any reaction to being struck and stoically resets his own dislocated shoulder.

* Sia from ''Webcomic/{{Crepuscule}}'', due to being a mutant, has a diminished sensory system, leading to this. He can feel some degree of pain if the injury's ''really'' bad, but for most the part, nothing. It's mentioned to be part of what makes him a great swordsman, as he won't stop even when wounded, but it's also left him feeling rather bored with everything in life, as this also applies to his sense of touch in general.
