** C.C also has a number of these traits as well, though she is a ''lot'' snarkier than most. Also Rei was not a Pizza fanatic.

* Mytho from ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' is a male, magically induced example: the shards of his heart, his emotions, were shattered throughout the land. Duck spends much of the first season working to restore his emotions.
* Aldra in ''Anime/QueensBlade'', but only in the original series, since in the sequel, her personality was [[ReTool retooled.]]

* Mytho from ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' is a male example. He's a white-haired, magical prince from a fairy tale. The shards of his heart, his emotions, were shattered throughout the land. As a result, Mytho is an emotionless shell and Duck spends much of the first season working to restore his emotions.

* Sen Yarizui, "the Ice Witch", from ''Anime/BenTo'', though she's more of a very laid-back Cloudcuckoolander as opposed to being shy and emotionally repressed.

** She may be a combination of Rei plus [[Franchise/DevilMayCry Dante. Or maybe Nero.]]
* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': Anya, a pink haired [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyed]] 15 year old HumongousMecha pilot who [[TheQuietOne likes taking pictures of people more than talking to them]], [[spoiler:and is a SoulJar for the protagonist's mother]].

* ''Anime/DualParallelTroubleAdventure'' has the character D, who pretty much is a straight up {{expy}} of Rei (this show has been described as ''Evangelion'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''Tenchi Muyo''), being a [[ArtificialHuman bio andriod]] who acts like a robotic EmotionlessGirl. She does however lack Rei's appearance, (which is probably because of legal issues). However she does have lime green hair and pale skin.

*''Manga/FutagoNoTeikoku'' has Fa. She has short, blueish hair, is very reserved and stoic, has a strong attachment to Gaw, and has a magical curse placed on her.



* The titular character of ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'', believe it or not, fits as a male example of this, albeit an unusual case where the stoic[=/=]emotionless demeanor is replaced with a [[ThePollyanna perpetually happy one]][[note]]though said personality is also a coping mechanism for his horrid life[[/note]]. Aside from that, he has the short blue hair, blue eyes, fair skin, DarkAndTroubledPast (what with [[TykeBomb being raised as a warrior]] by Athena), NoSocialSkills, and UndyingLoyalty to Nagi.



* Sextum in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' fits most of the attributes, although she doesn't show any interest on becoming more human in her few appearances. Her twin 'brother' Fate might fit in as a male example of the trope.

** Tate from ''Fire Emblem 6''. She looks the part and has the SugarAndIcePersonality down pat.
** The dancer Ninian from ''Fire Emblem 7''. Though she lacks the short hair, it IS blue, and she has red eyes, an unusual color even for FE standards, as well as pale skin, and is pretty frail both in cutscenes and in combat. She's also notably shy and reserved but can open up to all 3 of her support options (one of which is a possible love interest), and hides a dark secret; [[spoiler:she's a dragon born from a human father. Her tragic family history is revealed in Hector's story, in which the player learns that her father is the main antagonist, Nergal, who sent her and her brother through the Dragon's Gate for their own protection during the Scouring, a massive human/dragon war. Their mother, Aenir, was killed, and Nergal, seeking to reunite with his children after the war was over, began experimenting with unscrupulous dark magic that warped his mind and made him forget his original purpose. Centuries later, in an ironic twist of fate, he manages to call his children back through the Gate, but they don't remember him, and he doesn't remember he had children in the first place, only wanting to use the siblings to further his own goals of obtaining power.]] Worst of all, [[spoiler:he actually laughs when Eliwood accidentally kills her.]]

** This also makes the Rei Ayanami Expy an UnbuiltTrope, as ''Eva'' creator Creator/HideakiAnno designed Rei to be a {{Deconstruction}} of how [[UncannyValley unnatural]] {{Otaku}} culture's "ideal" of a shy, obedient love interest [[TakeThatAudience actually would be]]. It backfired, hard, as [[MisaimedFandom instead of considering her too strange to empathize with]], the audience admired her [[CharacterDevelopment gradual journey of getting in touch with her emotions, understanding that]] [[FreakinessShame others may appreciate her uniqueness rather than shun her for it]], [[CharacterDevelopment and eventually choosing her own path]].
