** A Season 5 VillainOfTheWeek named Samson is exposed to a chemical bath that seems to act as a poor man's Mirakuru, enhancing his strength and making him completely impervious to pain. However, unlike with the Mirakuru, he doesn't get a HealingFactor, and as such he's taken down with a dose of RealityEnsues -- just because he can't feel his tendons being cut, doesn't mean he's not immobilized when it happens.

* 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 [[GroinAttack sticks it down his shorts]] while looking bored.

** Long-time chefs, cooks and bakers get this too and can reach into hot ovens or flip things over in frying pans - with their fingers...

** Though uncommon, some creatures feel no pain. When hostile, they can prove quite dangerous. Many creatures can be killed by inflicting harm, which causes them to pass out from pain, leaving them vulnerable to a CoupDeGrace. Typically, a creature that doesn't feel pain must be killed by blood loss or dismemberment. This means blunt weapons are much less useful against such creatures.

Rattels have a reputation in this regard and are capable of getting into a bees' nest for the honey whilst disregarding thousands of stings. This is why they're called [[MeaningfulName honey badgers]]. They can also shrug off, more or less, bites from even the most deadly snakes.



* 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.

* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'':
** Season 2's StoryArc is built around Mirakuru, a SuperSerum developed as part of a UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Japanese military program. People who use it become SuperSoldiers, which gives them super strength and a massively impressive HealingFactor, which together means that they just shrug off whatever they're hit with, not even seeming to notice it.

* In ''Tabletopgame/BattleTech'', the Clan's Elemental PoweredArmor pilots are hopped up on so many painkillers that they will shrug off mortal wounds and keep attacking until they physically can't move or bleed out. However, outside of their armor they are simply exceptionally strong humans and will yield when wounded.

* [[TabletopGames/PrometheanTheCreated Prometheans]] have this as one of their special tricks -- whereas other supernaturals (and mortals) start taking wound penalties at a certain level, and have to roll to resist passing/bleeding out when their health meter fills with bashing/lethal damage, Prometheans will continue onward even if they're ''losing limbs'', not falling down until they're dead. [[BackFromTheDead And even that doesn't stop them]].

* [[spoiler:Kohaku]] from ''{{Tsukihime}}'' is a purely psychological (though apparently no less effective) version of this trope. One scene has her cutting her finger, then claiming that if she just tells herself she's just a doll, she won't feel the pain. She really does believe she's just a doll, who has to act human to fit in. And the "doll" thing was a defense mechanism created to deal with [[RapeAsBackstory much worse]] things than mere cuts.
* [[spoiler:Noiz]] from ''{{VisualNovel/DRAMAtical Murder}}'' has a condition which prevents him from feeling pain. [[spoiler:Embarassed by their son's abnormality, Noiz's parents choose to isolate him from others as a child.]]
