* ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'''s Yuri Lowell, as a partial {{Expy}} of the above Jade, is also similarly unfazed in the face of danger. It doesn't freak out his TrueCompanions but they certainly think it's ''weird'' that facing death in the face only worries him somewhat. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] when it comes to [[BloodKnight Judith]] in regards to [[CrowningMomentOfFunny her saying she would cut her way out of a monster's stomach to win a fight]]. Yuri ''believes'' she could do that and finds her terrifying for that reason.

* Comicbook/{{Batman}} in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''. After Comicbook/{{Superman}} causes the Batmobile to crash and rips the hood off, Batman's responce is to stand up, stare the Kryptonian down and deliver a BadassBoast. Later, when Doomsday brings down the Batplane with its EyeBeams and Bruce finds himself about to be vapourised by the rampaging, unstoppable, Kryptonian abomination, his responce is simply a fairly calm [[OhCrap "oh shit"]].

** [[TheAce Milla]] [[GodInHumanForm Maxwell]] is much the same, though how much is her keeping her calm in the face of danger and her not valuing her life (in the first game) is up for debate. [[spoiler: Her alternate version in the sequel subverts this trope however.]]

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' and its [[VideoGame/TalesOfXillia2 sequel]] has [[NiceGuy Jude]] [[CombatMedic Mathis]]. As a medical student (and actual practising doctor in the sequel) it makes that he would be trained in that regard...but he just naturally seems able to keep his cool in the face of danger. Might have to do with being a TeenGenius as much as his personality.

* Stockbrockers are so good at this, that the US Navy considered them a background occupation of choice for Fighter Direction Officers during WorldWarII. It was believed someone who could handle the stress of bargaining on Wall Street is likely to be good at directing air traffic in a carrier battle.
** It was also about having experience in quickly allocating resources.

** In ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'', Batman always looks calm, composed and imperturbable. At a point an enraged Kryptonian is floating behind him, and he keeps working without turning around.
