* All too often seen in Tabletop [=RPGs=]. Depending on the back story of your character ([[TheRoleplayer provided you've written it]]), you may come from a very posh, sheltered life style, and yet have no qualms swinging a sword or blasting magic at a group of Goblins, resulting in piles of sliced limbs and pulped corpses. Even dedicated roleplayers will usually not have their character get queasy, even if it would make sense to do so. This can become very prevalent in the NewWorldOfDarkness, or similar games, where your character has a vice and a virtue. Unless the GM enforces it, most players will hardly notice their vices.

** Justified in that he's a surgeon. And he's never shown all that much aversion to dirt and mess, just practices appropriate hygiene and organisation for a medical professional.

* [[{{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.
