* ''Series/ANZACGirls'': Instead of panicking when she's faced with a catastrophic lack of anything resembling proper facilities or adequate supplies at the field hospital on Lemnos Island, Matron Grace Wilson not only keeps a cool head but keeps her nurses calm as well, then sets about fixing the problem to the best of her ability and making do with what she's got. In real life, the real Grace Wilson wound up with an unheard-of 2% mortality rate almost miraculous given the era and circumstances. It got her the Royal Red Cross.

*** One of the signs of how far the Chaos Space Marines have [[FallenHero fallen]] is that they do not have this rule. Their nerves are very much not steel, and they know fear.

**The Doctor himself can be described as having this, as he regularly risks his life and confronts danger with composure. In The Satan Pit, he literally laughs in the face of the Devil, in The Big Bang he carries on without visible nerves after having seen his future self near death and in Hell Bent he literally stands in front of a firing squad without flinching. He is also unpeturbed at gruesome sights, although sometimes saddened - in the episode Cold War he quite clinically examines a dismembered corpse. Not to mention the fact that he can even carry on living and being cheerful after everything he's seen and lost.

Reasons for this demeanor vary. They probably SeenItAll, is naturally [[TheSpock Spock-like]], has an iron-clad StepfordSmiler facade (though on the inside they probably ''are'' banging their head against his cage) or emotionally ''can't'' be made to feel extreme emotion, such as the TinMan. This doesn't count if the character is an EmptyShell, since there isn't anyone home to excite. The ExtremeDoormat may count depending on the individual case (some are just too listless to care at all, not requiring any emotional control at all). AffablyEvil villains and TheChessmaster are always composed as a result of everything [[AllAccordingToPlan going according to plan]].

* UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington was famous for this; he regularly rode to the front lines during battles, even once commenting that he rather liked the sound of bullets whizzing past his head.

** Carrillo later explained his reasoning to the press: "Why didn't I obey? Well, simple. I am the leader of the Communist party [[[note]]The perpetrators of the coup were francoists (fascists)[[/note]]. It didn't matter if I lied down or stood, if they succeeded they would have killed me all the same".

In other words, he was convinced he wouldn't leave Congress alive, so he decided to FaceDeathWithDignity.

* ''GreysAnatomy'': The season six finale is a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Cristina. [[spoiler:Derek's been shot, and lockdown has left no one but her to operate on him. If she doesn't, he will die. A few minutes later, the shooter comes in and sticks his gun in her face, ''demanding'' that she stop operating and let Derek die. She's scared, she's crying, but her hands don't shake because dammit [[HonorBeforeReason she promised she would try to save her best friend's husband.]] She keeps. On. Operating.]]
