* In ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'', when [[AncientConspiracy SEELE]] nukes the [[HomeBase Geofront]] and sends the army in, everyone is going crazy and running around… but Shinji, who walks calmly while everything is going to Hell around him.

* ''Film/ApocalypseNow'': Col. Kilgore strolls around in the midst of a battle as his fellow soldiers duck and cringe at the bullets and explosions. The narrator says that he's the kind of guy who won'Lord Cutler Beckett's death scene in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End was very much the serious version. He's walking down the stairs, which t get so much as scratched during the war.

* An interesting variant crops up in ''Film/TheDambusters'; Wing Commander Guy Gibson strolls past an almighty BarBrawl that's taking place ''just'' off-screen, his StiffUpperLip undisturbed by the occasional chair being hurled through a window into his path or a man being tackled to the ground by two others and forcibly relieved of his trousers. This is not ''strictly'' accurate, incidentally; by his own admission in his memoirs, Gibson was just as much the WorkHardPlayHard type as the rest of the squadron.

When the bullets, fists or pies are flying, expect one character to be able to wander through it all without so much as a nick, a scratch or a drop of cream.

Usually played for laughs, this trope will have one person able to maneuver about the chaos while completely avoiding damage. This could be either through skillful dodging or simple blind luck. Often the character will take advantage of the pandemonium. If a bar has erupted into [[BarBrawl battle royale]], this guy will be leisurely enjoying the top shelf booze while bodies slide along the bar and fly into the stacks of bottles behind him. Sometimes they may try to play peacemaker. Other times they are simply trying to find the nearest exit.

* In ''[[Comicbook/XMen Uncanny X-Men]]'' #141, ComicBook/KittyPryde underwent her first Danger Room session. She had to get past a gauntlet of deadly traps to reach a designated area and turn off the simulation. She simply closed her eyes and walked forward, phasing all the way. This scene is notable for being the very first recorded instance of {{Wolverine}} laughing.

* ''SuperSmashBrothers'': Peach strolls across the deck of the Halberd as Fox and Falco strafe it with laser blasts, starting a chain of explosions directly behind her. She doesn't seem to notice, and in fact, merrily twirls her parasol as she does.

* Enforced in ''VideoGame/ShadowComplex'' with the [[BeehiveBarrier Fusion]] [[PurposelyOverpoweredHelmet]] - it renders the user completely ImmuneToBullets, grenades, missiles, railgun rounds and ''artillery fire'', so long as said user does not move faster than any pace that can be described as "brisk".

* [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor]] does this in "Battlefield" and "The Christmas Invasion."
** In fact, in the former, The Doctor takes this a step further by casually walking inbetween two people having a ''swordfight'', cheerfully raising his hat to them as he does so.

* A vehicle variant occurs in ''TopGear'', during the review of the Ford Fiesta. The test was to take part in an amphibious assault alongside the Royal Marines, which culminates in a wonderfully, brilliantly awesome shot of the cheerfully green Fiesta winding its way up a beach filled with gunfire and explosions.
