* PlayedWith in ''Fanfic/MaimDeMaim and Satsuki Matoi. Everything that [[spoiler: Evelyn tried to do to kill her with, even going as far as throwing the former into a furnace]], had zero effect. However, earlier, during a bonding moment with Junketsu, she did react to being burned with an iron.

However, earlier, during a bonding moment with Junketsu, she did react to being burned with an iron. Then again, she does have a powerful HealingFactor.

** For a powerful localized painkiller, there are sodium channel blockers such as Novocaine. As the name implies, it works by blocking signals in your nervous system, so your brain literally does not register any feeling at all.

* ''Manga/AstroBoy'', being a robot is supposed to be immune to pain, though this was sometimes portrayed inconsistently over the manga's long run, possibly justified by his AI developing to be more humanlike.
** Indeed, for example, in Volume 7 [[spoiler:When Hamegg has Astro in the circus, he beats him with an electrical whip. It very clearly hurts Astro, as he cries out in pain and begs him to stop before collapsing.]]

* The BigBad Buros from ''Mang/NurseAngelRirikaSOS'' gave Dewey the ability to feel no pain so he can fight Ririka until he dies. Dewey didn't actually realize the ability until later. He gets increasingly injured but feels nothing. When his body begins to give out he suddenly starts feeling the pain. It's an agonizing, awful pain. Being a kind hearted girl, Ririka uses the last of her Green Vaccine to cure his injuries despite him being an enemy.

** One such condition is CIPA, Congenital Insensitivity to Pain with Anhidrosis. Besides not feeling pain, they can't feel temperature and don't sweat. Overheating is a constant problem and leading cause of death in babies. People with this condition must constantly check for injuries, monitor their body temperature, check orifices for cuts or bleeding, etc. There are only about 20-30 people in the world with this condition at any one time, and it obviously shows up much, much more frequently in fiction.

* Used in an episode of ''TheMiddleman'': The villain is the only man who can lie when faced with [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Pain's River]], because the zombifying pike that injected venom directly into his spine left him impervious to pain.

* Leprosy is such a crippling 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.
** In the middle-ages, specifically around the time of the crusades, some men with leprosy were given a final chance to serve God and country and became leprous crusaders, the disease so advanced that, while they 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.
* Diabetics can develop numbness in their extremities. They can step on something sharp and not know it until they look at their feet.
** 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.

* Certain drugs, including PCP (see above), ephinephrine, and others are often used by militia and insurgents (e.g. insurgents in Mogadishu and Fallujah) to give them increased staying power in combat; though they can still bleed out, the painkillers will dull any pain and keep their hearts pumping even after they should be clinically dead.

* "Brisingr", the third book in the ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'', had soldiers who could feel no pain due to magic. For some reason this makes them practically invincible, and people are advised to destroy the brain or sever the head as though they were zombies.

* "Brisingr", the third book in the ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'', had soldiers who could feel no pain due to magic. For some reason this makes them practically invincible, Unless a blow hit/affected something exceptionally major - their lungs/heart/head - they'd just keep coming and people are advised to destroy the brain or sever the head as often destroyed morale and/or army cohesion, though they were zombies.they're otherwise affected by stuff. Ie severing nerves in an arm would lose functionality for said arm, which they'd notice rather than the pain/lack there-of.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'''s Data is incapable of pain -- until he gets living skin grafted on in ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact,'' allowing him the experience for the first time. He doesn't much care for it.

He doesn't much care for it. Being an android, he's immune to any of the downsides of a lack of pain since internal diagnostic systems will leave him aware of any damage that he takes.

* Kahlua in ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'', thanks to a "charm". While this made her nearly unstoppable in battle, as she was nearly impossible to knock out, her superior was GenreSavvy enough to realize that this prevents her from knowing when her body is too damaged to go on.

While this made her nearly unstoppable in battle, as she was nearly impossible to knock out, her superior was GenreSavvy enough to realize that this prevents her from knowing when her body is too damaged to go on. Thus, he pulls her back because as one of the world's greatest assassins she's far too useful to let her die pointlessly.

* One of Dr. Stylish's mooks in ''Manga/AkameGaKill'' is a {{cyborg}} whose enhancements include a lack of any sense of pain. While he was sufficiently mechanical to be immune to the OneHitKill function of Akame's sword (which only works on biological life), she eventually causes enough damage that he can no longer fight back. Before he dies, the mook {{lampshades}} that feeling pain is actually a useful thing.

* As a result of nerve damage sustained during his first failed attempt at being a superhero, this could be considered the closest thing ''ComicBook/KickAss'' has to a superpower. Even then he can feel ''some'' pain (in TheMovie he specifically states that even with all the nerve damage, having mafia goon [[ColdBloodedTorture torture him]] still really hurt).
