* [[{{Monk}} Adrian Monk]] has a laundry list of neuroses and neatness issues, but is able to set them aside at will upon needing to view a grisly crime scene.

* Ned the pie maker from ''PushingDaisies'' is also rather neurotic. But given his [[LockedIntoStrangeness particular]] [[BlessedWithSuck ability]], he keeps rotting fruit in the back room, and might likely go mad if he didn't develop this as a survival skill/coping method. This got particularly odd when Ned discovered a dead rat in a taffy vat. He commented on it being gross (apparently only because it was a rat in food). This is a man who makes his living ''touching corpses with his bare finger''.

* On ''{{Bones}}'', Brennan, Addy and Hodgins at the Jeffersonian all appear to have this trait -- Hodgins even revels in the finding of bugs and insects in the goriest of places. Dr. Saroyan, despite being a Medical Examiner in her own right, is a little put off by the state of a couple of the more interesting bodies they get.

* Sara Sidle of ''{{CSI}}'' can handle any bodily fluid splattered anywhere - except spit. No spit.
* Dr. Simon Tam of ''{{Firefly}}'' keeps himself quite clean and organized throughout the show. However, on one occasion, where the crew discovers scores of mutilated corpses in a drifting ship (the victims of a Reaver attack), Simon and Book are the only two not too {{Squick}}ed to go clean them up (for a proper burial). Simon even points out that "bodies don't bother me" when volunteering for the task.

* In ''[[JediAcademyTrilogy I, Jedi]]'' the [[SpacePolice ex-CorSec officer]] Corran Horn is able to look at a man who had been burned to death and calmly point out what's strange about the body, while Luke winces and the other Jedi-in-training are starkly horrified. Corran later is extremely shaken up when he's hit by the 'disturbance in the Force' caused by Kyp destroying Carida, even running outside and throwing up.

* In one episode of ''SledgeHammer'', Hammer ate his lunch in the same room the coroner was doing an autopsy in.
* ''{{Dexter}}'' justifies this trope rather baldly because Dexter is a serial killer himself who finds bloody crime scenes to be appealing. One episode subverts this when another serial killer soaks an entire hotel room in blood to remind Dexter of a traumatic past experience. His horrified reaction causes a cop to note that at least there's ''something'' he can't handle.
