* Ginny Weasley shows signs of this in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix''. Everyone else has no idea how to deal when Harry is beginning to lose his temper. Ginny coolly and calmly defuses him.

** Somewhat explained that both of these ladies have strong personalities in their own. Both Chichi and Bulma may not be strong fighters (well, Chichi compared to the Z-Fighters, but she is a martial artist), but they have such strong force of will, Goku and Vegeta pretty much listen to them always. Vegeta explains this that Saiyans are naturally attracted to strong people. Piccolo's reaction to this revelation is ThisExplainsSoMuch.

** Christopher Nolan's trilogy has Alfred acting as a confrontational mentor to Bruce, even if Alfred Pennyworth in those films can hardly be described as a BadAss.
** Despite Batsy being a JerkAssStu beloved by Gotham and TheDreaded to its villains, in the Lego Batman Movie, Alfred has the gall to put Bruce in time out like a petulant child. Barbara Gordan is not cowed by him and wants to work with the Caped Crusader as an equal; after all, she went to Harvard For Police.

But for every intimidating loner, there's one person on whom their gruff exterior will have no effect. It could be because this person knows who they're dealing with personally, and, thus, doesn't really take their glares and threats seriously. It could also be because they're so innocent and upbeat that they don't even consider the loner's threatening exterior to ''be'' threatening. Whatever the case, they refuse (knowingly or otherwise) to be intimidated.

* ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'': To most of the world, Jouichirou [[TheMaidenNameDebate Saiba[=/=]Yukihira]] is [[RedBaron "The Wandering Chef" or "The Asura of Cooking"]], a chef whose grasp of ''cuisine'' is such that it can restore the will to live to the terminally ill and cause priests to abandon their religion. The people who know him, and his son in particular, know that while his skills are pretty much head and shoulders above anyone else, he is also moody, whimsical, ill-disciplined, prone to goofing off and has a bizarre fascination for [[CordonBleughChef food combinations that Man Was Not Meant To Know]].

* Eve and Roarke are both intimidating people in the ''Literature/InDeath'' series. Eve's used to bullying her way around, and Roarke is a BadAss who [[{{Fiction 500}} owns everything]]. The only people to consistently and calmly deflect their spite whenever they rage or angst are Mira and Summerset, their respective parental figures.

* This is a recurring theme in the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' games; no matter how powerful the main character becomes, everybody in their party is willing to joke about or make fun of them. [[VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDark Etna]] in particular has no problem dissing Laharl or taking advantage of him whenever she can get away with it.
