* In ''VideoGame/Paranoiac'', [[TheProtagonist Miki]] tries to defeat the monster by insisting it’s not real. Unfortunately, [[spoiler: this occurs in [[DownerEnding the bad ending]] – the monster keeps advancing upon Miki anyway and she is found dead the next morning. Acknowledging that the monster ''is'' real leads to the good ending, although ''that'' ending also reveals Miki is [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane a schizophrenic…]]]]

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', Big Mom's YourSoulIsMine ability works by affecting the intended victim's fear of death and the soul attachment to life. When Jimbei announces his intent to rebel against her and join the Straw Hat Pirates, she finds she can't take his soul as Jimbei sees no reason to fear a mere Emperor when his new captain will be the Pirate King.

* The MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic AbridgedSeries ''WebVideo/ScootertrixTheAbridged'' has normally LovableCoward Fluttershy[[note]] Who's even ''more'' easily scared than cannon[[/note]], face down a cockatrice, a creature that feeds on fear. Interestingly, this is at first played for laughs, with Fluttershy finding the [[MixAndMatchCritter cockatrice's]] [[NightmareRetardant bizarre appearance, more weird than scary.]] Then, played for drama, after it actual tries to attack her and the CMC, at which point stares it down yelling [[PuncturedForEmphasis "I'm. Not. Scared."]], [[spoiler: causing it to '''explode'''.]]

* The whole point behind the song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPOLQmqNXso "I'm Not Gonna Panic"]], used in the dub of ''Anime/YuGiOh''.



* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': There is a monster called a boggart, which takes the form of your worst fear. If you use the 'riddikulus' spell, and imagine a way to make the thing funny (e.g. a spider on rollerblades) then it'll be weakened, as it's hurt by laughter.

Numbers can bolster courage as well, and because it can only assume one form at a time, facing it as a group confuses it.

->'''Prince''': ''[transformed into [[SuperpoweredEvilSide the Dark Prince]]]'' You are right, I have been like a child. Naive and arrogant, always rushing to undo my mistakes, never facing the consequences of my actions. No more. I accept what I have done and all that it implies.\\

** Although, the phrase, "if you're not afraid, it can't hurt you" seems to be a team catchphrase, as it turns up again in later episodes, notably in ''The Halloween Door''.

* ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters'' also dabbles in this. The Knight of Terror restrains people and demands that they look at his face (which [[NothingIsScarier the audience can't see]]), usually with the desired result of intimidation. When one boy finally refuses, says the trope's name, and [[BlowingARaspberry blows a raspberry]], the knight collapses into a pile of apparently empty armor.
