* Those who unlock Dr. Tan in ''VideoGame/DanceCentral 2'' will get a MadScientist character for whom dancing is SeriousBusiness, meaning he deadpans his way through Music/LadyGaga and BritneySpears dance routines that would be vague sexy for a female character, and ''absolutely hilarious'' for him.

* Death is terribly serious in ''Film/DeathTakesAHoliday'' when he's being romanced and comically being dumped for analyzing his date.

* In ''WebVideo/EdgarAllanPoesMurderMysteryDinnerParty'', the writers gathered for the murder mystery game refuse to take the very ''real'' murders that start happening seriously. Except for the two gothic writers, Edgar Allan Poe and Mary Shelley, who seem incapable of ''not'' taking anything seriously, no matter how trivial.

* Creator/MarilynMonroe, at least when she appeared in comedies, where she was usually not the main character and didn't get many laugh-out-loud scenes; on the surface, [[SexSells it's pretty obvious why she's there in the first place]]. This is especially noteworthy in the two films she made with Creator/BillyWilder, ''TheSevenYearItch'' and ''SomeLikeItHot'' (and in fact, she said she did not enjoy filming the latter precisely for the above reason). Which is not to say she wasn't comical to more than an incidental extent: George Cukor, another of her directors, pointed out that "she acted as if she didn't understand why it was funny. Which is what made it so funny."

* One of the WebVideo/HydraulicPressChannel's claims to fame is its host's commentary, which sounds ridiculously deadpan and serious to most viewers. The host himself isn't really TheStoic very often, as he often smiles and laughs when on camera.

* Yuri Hyuga from the ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts'' series. Somehow he manages to remain {{Badass}} even while surrounded by a LargeHam pro wrestler, a ditzy fortune teller, an intelligent wolf and the princess of Russia. (It's mainly because he's pretty goofy himself). Moreso in the second game, which had a goofier cast, particurly as the events of the first game had made him a KnightInSourArmour / GrumpyBear / {{Determinator}}.

* Sakuya in ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' is so serious it isn't funny. Come ''VideoGame/{{Okamiden}}'', however, her *ahem* [[CutenessProximity interactions]] with the protagonist [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Chibi]][[PhysicalGod terasu]] are hard to watch with a straight face. This is subverted "completely" in Okami's Official Art book, though, which has a certain image that pokes fun at her 'strict and serious' in-game personality, and is described as being 'a more intimate reflection of her as a person'. What is Sakuya doing in this image that is so comically different to her demeanor in-game, you ask? [[spoiler: Checking out her ass in a mirror, with Issun in the corner, getting a good view.]]

* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' - Hakumen is like this during his "Help Me Dr. Kokonoe!" segment. Also, he's so Unfunny that he has no joke endings.

* Valygar from ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII'', especially when bantering with Jan Jansen, Minsc, Imoen or Haer'Dhalis (as the latter discovers, Valygar [[HiddenDepths is surprisingly adept at puns]]). For that matter, almost ''any'' character becomes The Comically Serious when paired with Jan, especially Valygar and Keldorn. Or [[DumbMuscle Minsc]], even the PC.
** Valygar gets bonus points for actually being able to shut down Jan. In one of their banters, Jan tries to strike up conversation by talking about his mother. Before he can get started on an anectdote, Valygar explains in horrifying detail about ''his'' mother and the horrible monster she was. For once, Jan drops the subject.

* Papyrus from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is introduced as this. He takes his job as a royal guard ''very'' seriously, far more seriously than his brother [[TheSlacker Sans]]. However, he's also [[HotBlooded very passionate]] and something of a CloudCuckoolander, which rather undercuts his serious demeanor. Papyrus softens up a bit if you take the Pacifist route and befriend him.
