* A questline in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' has Trevor helping a pair of lunatics threaten and arrest anyone they think is an illegal immigrant. The last mission starts with Trevor running into one of their previous victims on the street, and is informed that the man's family as been living in the US for two hundred years. Trevor tries to play it off, but the argument escalates until Trevor is pointing a gun at the man's head. He doesn't flinch, and tells Trevor that if he wants to make things right, he'll take care of the men he had been working with. He then tells him that he won't pay him a single penny for doing so. Trevor, easily [[AxCrazy the most psychotic and violent GTA protagonist]], can do nothing more but honor his demands.

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'' Lee Jordan reacts to the new PoliceState that is actively hunting down and killing "undesirables" and dissenters by starting up Potterwatch, of which he is the announcer and continuously makes jokes at the regime's expense and goes out of his way to report on deaths and other things which the regime is doing everything in their power to hide despite the fact that they are actively hunting him and sometimes get so close that it delays his broadcasts.

Added DiffLines:

* Similarly, Pilots. There's a reason they're known for their DangerDeadpan. When zooming across at nearly the speed of sound in a metal tube, no matter if it's just a pilot by himself in his jet fighter, a few passengers in a small plane, or ''hundreds'' of lives in his hands in a large passenger plane, pilots, on a rule, remain calm and composed even as they careen to certain doom. This is just as well considering that quick thinking, steady hands, and rapid problem-solving skills are the only things that can save a flight from crashing when things go wrong.
** Goes double for Astronauts. They aren't called the steely-eyed missile men for nothing. Out there, careening across space in perpetual freefall, if ''anything'' goes wrong, fixing it is ''not'' something you can do while panicking.

* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': [[ManipulativeBastard Gendo]] is almost always calm, not matter that situation. He only got upset and agitated after [[spoiler:[[PeggySue Shinji]] warned him that he would never get [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl what he wanted]].]]

* Michael Jordan was magic in the clutch because of these. It's really this attribute, more than his other-worldly skills and athleticism, that set him apart from all his peers. Even if he came up short, it wouldn't faze him at all next time. One game illustrated this more than any other. He had one of the best games of his career while suffering from a stomach illness, personally scoring 45 points while throwing up on the sidelines between every play.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'''s [[ActionGirl Velvet]] [[AntiHero Crowe]] didn't start as this, but after spending three years in a HellholePrison repeatedly killing all daemons dropped into her cell and surviving mainly off her desire for {{Revenge}} and her sheer [[ThePowerOfHate hatred]] she holds for the BigBad means she approaches dangerous situations more casually than normal people do. [[DownplayedTrope That said, she's still plenty emotional and there are plenty of things that can shake her]]. [[BloodKnight Rokurou]] [[{{Samurai}} Rangetsu]] is a more straight example, though his BlueAndOrangeMorality and ManChild state is partly to blame.
