* Can happen in ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress''. If a dorf suffers enough trauma, they'll get "doesn't really care about anything anymore" permanently added to their profile. And they really don't -- unpleasant events will be far less bothersome, and good events will be far less enjoyable. A common VideoGameCrueltyPotential in older versions (when dorfs were much more prone to {{Ax Craz|y}}iness from bad thoughts) was to do this deliberately.

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' with [[spoiler:Sans. Being [[MediumAwareness aware the whole world can reset at any time]] has basically driven him to become incredibly lazy and not really care what's going on. That is unless you do the [[VillainProtagonist Genocide Run]] in which case you become such an evil threat he can't possibly not care any longer and decides to [[LetsGetDangerous give you a bad time]]... by laying the [[BewareTheSillyOnes most]] [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard brutally]] [[NintendoHard hard]] [[MarathonBoss boss]] [[ThatOneBoss fight]] on you the entire game has to offer.]]

The meta-counterpart of TheyJustDidntCare. When used seriously, the character has probably crossed the DespairEventHorizon, or overlap with SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids. Compare GivingUpOnLogic. If a work does this to its audience, it's EightDeadlyWords.

* ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff'': After spending all his time fretting over what his father would think about the title character taking his precious limited-run Ferrari out for a joyride, Cameron decides he's tired of his nervousness and will let him find out. Even after they accidentally wreck it, he stands behind his decision.

* This is how the [[UsefulNotes/ThreeKingdomsShuWeiWu Three Kingdoms]] effectively ended. The state of Shu had been in decline for some time due to rampant corruption within the court and the general Jiang Wei's repeated and futile attacks on the much larger state of Wei. When Wei launched a full scale invasion in 263, the soldiers on the frontlines did their duty, but when a crack Wei force managed to make their way to the capital city of Chengdu (after defeating a desperate last stand by what few defenders were available), the city surrendered without much of a fight.
** The fate of the third kingdom Wu was even more pathetic, as the people and the soldiers had become so disillusioned by all the political turmoil followed by the tyrannical rule of their emperor Sun Hao that when Wu was invaded, most soldiers simply threw down their arms and surrendered without a fight, and the common people helpfully pointed out the quickest routes to use for advancing large groups of soldiers.
