-->'''Navigator:''' What's the matter Commander? You don't like flying, huh? Aw, this is nothing! You should've been with us five, six months ago! Whoa! You talk about puke! We ran into a hailstorm over the Sea of Japan. Everybody's retching their guts out! The pilot shot his lunch all over the windshield, and I barfed on the radio! Shorted it out completely! And it wasn't that lightweight stuff either, it was that chunky industrial weight puke! (''offers him the candy bar he's been eating'') Hey, you want a bite?

* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'': When the crew come across a derelict ship whose crew had been mutilated by Reavers, most of the crew, even the hardened warriors, are noticeably disturbed. Simon volunteers to... clean up the dead and prepare them for a BurialInSpace, specifically saying that bodies don't bother him (he was a trauma surgeon before coming to ''Serenity''). Shepherd Book also volunteers to help, and say some funeral rites over them. He too doesn't seem too disturbed, another hint that he was involved in sinister things in his past.

* ''{{Cheers}}'': Parodied. Woody is unperturbed by Carla's graphic description of how varicose veins are removed - while eating ''spaghetti'' no less! - but is disgusted when Frasier loudly exclaims about an article about psychological distress full of technical jargon, unable to eat anymore.

* In the ''Film/DirtyHarry'' movie ''Film/MagnumForce'', Harry is called to the scene of a murder with his partner. One of the cops there comments on how the inside the victim's car is just filled with all kinds of brain parts (the audience doesn't see this) and generally goes into the most gross bodies he's seen. Harry is unaffected but his partner looks at the body and then turns to go puke.
** Even the first ''Film/DirtyHarry'' movie involves Harry telling someone who is [[InterruptedSuicide considering jumping off a building]] that he wants the guy's name, because the mess of a splattered body often makes people hard to identify. The guy says he thinks he's gonna puke, and Harry, who doesn't seem nauseated at all, says "[[CrossesTheLineTwice don't do that, not with all those people down there looking up]]."

* In ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', when an attack on the school leaves almost all the students in a near-death state, Tohsaka is horrified and is visibly fighting back nausea. Shirou, on the other hand, calmly inspects the students and determines they're not dead... at least not yet. Tohsaka demands to know how he can remain so calm in this situation, and Shirou replies that he's seen lots of corpses before, which disturbs Tohsaka even further.
