* Phoenix Wright himself goes into one in ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonVsAceAttorney''. [[spoiler:After Maya is seemingly [[KillItWithFire burned to death]] as part of the town's literal WitchHunt, Phoenix is clearly not all there mentally, but holds it together for the sake of Luke and Espella. Even when confronting the man who ordered Maya's execution, Phoenix [[TranquilFury barely raises his voice]].]]

* The First Officer of British Airways Flight 5390 demonstrated this after the captain of the flight was nearly blown [[DestinationDefenestration completely out of the cockpit]] when the [[ExplosiveDecompression window blew out]]. The flight attendants kept the captain from flying out, while the first officer, with 350 MPH winds blasting in his face and full fuel tanks making any landing much more dangerous, landed his plane perfectly at a regional airport he had never seen before. Only after he landed did he let his emotions through.

** To extend the computer metaphor, the Zur-En-Arrh personality is so single-mindedly focused on crime fighting that has been described as "Batman on DOS." We also do see a bit of Bat-Mite so it is wondering how sane this Batman is (though given what Bat-Mite said, there is possibly no one right answer.)

* Potentially deconstructed in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. After [[spoiler: Kamina's death,]] Simon enters a somewhat berserker state in battle, done in an attempt to [[spoiler:channel Kamina]] and attempting to function as a person and moving on. However, delaying in coping with his grief is unhealthy, taking a severe toll on his physical and mental facilities (it's implied that he has been neglecting sleep and not eating as much while also acting more aggressive.) The lack of help from any of the team makes it worse. Simon is ultimately worked through the grief thanks to Nia's help and eventually finds the confidence to move forward once more.

* Tobias of the Literature/{{Animorphs}} is a boy living in the body of a hawk, and he experiences the mind of the hawk as well as his own. The hawk is much freer from the problems of anxiety and sadness than humans in general [[TheWoobie or the human Tobias in particular]] (even physical pain doesn't bother the hawk as much as it would a human), and the hawk mind is perfectly capable of carrying on the normal functions for a hawk body. So for Tobias, allowing the hawk to be the dominant personality is a highly useful coping mechanism.

* ''Film/{{Serenity}}'': [[spoiler:Zoe's response to Wash's death . She was in no way paralyzed with fear. Her response when everyone else asked where he was reeked of "must focus on the matter at hand, my emotional state is not important right now." It seems that she was determined almost to the [[DeathSeeker point of suicide]] during the climactic fight, since she [[TheSlowWalk casually walks away from cover]] straight toward the waves of oncoming Reavers while firing her shotgun. The DVDCommentary says Creator/JossWhedon and Creator/GinaTorres, Zoe's actress, argued about it. She felt Zoe would be more angry, and Joss explained that Zoe was [[TranquilFury suppressing it right up until the aforementioned point]].]]

* ''XWingSeries'': Myn Donos of Wraith Squadron is stuck like this through most of the first book, after his squadron was killed in an ambush. Other characters aren't ''afraid'' of him, but they definitely find him strange, and ones who knew him before are unnerved. Even Safe Mode can't protect him when his astromech - the only other being to survive - is destroyed. Fortunately his squadron mates are able to break him out of the subsequent BSOD, and in a later book when he threatens to go into Safe Mode again he's called out on it.
