** The protagonist can also be seen as this, since while a lot of amusing moments happen in the game, their sprite still has that same -_- face.

* 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.

* The stereotype of the [[GermanicDepressives Germans]] being what it is, this seems a rather inevitable result. There was even a worldwide pole that ranked Germany as the least funny country, which ''Creator/StephenColbert'' contested because they have a breakfast cheese called "Oberammergaueralpenkräuterdelikatessenfrühstückskäse."

* Valygar from ''[[BaldursGate Baldur's Gate II]]'', 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.

* Bill the Caveman, from the ''Terrible Thunder-Lizards'' sections of ''EekTheCat''. (The fact that he was also TheChewToy made it even funnier -- "When will the hurting stop?")

* Red Foreman embodies this trope in ''That70sShow''. While he does have a lighter side that pops up from time to time, 99% of the humor derived from his character comes from his stern personality clashing with the absolutely absurd plots going on around him.

* ''TheImportanceOfBeingEarnest'' is a WordOfGod. OscarWilde wrote acting instructions in the original text of the play, calling for the entire cast to perform as gravely as possible; he felt (perhaps rightly so) if they treated the subject matter too lightly the satire would be lost.
** Essentially, there is a note about the importance of being earnest in The Importance of Being Earnest.
