* Aeryn Sun of ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' is a minor tactical genius and ''never'' loses her cool...perhaps to her detriment, as the path of her [[OfficialCouple relationship with Crichton]] is rocky and convoluted. She becomes more TheKirk as she goes along.

* Moze on NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide, with Cookie as TheMcCoy and Ned as TheKirk.
* Doctor Larry Fleinhart from ''NUMB3RS''. Surprisingly, Doctor Charlie Epps doesn't qualify, as he emotes just fine. More surprising as Larry is the [[RomanticismVersusEnlightenment Romantic]] one and Charlie is the [[RomanticismVersusEnlightenment Enlightened]] one.

* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' has Kirigiri, who is coldly aloof, calculating, and emotionless. Celes is one as well, what with her saying they should abandon all attachment to the outside world and just accept their fate living in Hope's Peak [[spoiler: though ultimately subverted when it's revealed that she's so desperate to get out that she orchestrates a double murder.]] Togami is a milder, crueler version.
** ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' introduces Izuru Kamukura, who makes all of the above look hotheaded. [[spoiler:He used to be a perfectly ordinary guy, until he accepted to subject himself to an operation in order to become as talented as the other Ultimates. The end result: he acquired ''every'' talent, but his emotions are completely gone and he has no drive other than acquire other talents]].

** Celestia, the BigGood of the series, more than once put the main cast (whom she is said to tresure) in a dangerous position with a gentle smile, sometimes without telling them so. Of course, given her position and age it is somewhat expected...

* Inspector Lunge from ''Anime/{{Monster}}''.
** He ''acts'' like The Spock, but it should be noted that, mainly due to his own {{Pride}}, he disregards mounting evidence of Johan's existence until it becomes overwhelming. A true Spock would have impartially re-evaluated evidence and circumstances as they changed and based his judgements purely on logic. Also, his [[spoiler: big fight with Roberto]] shows that he does have an emotional BerserkButton, and while his [[spoiler: handcuffing himself to Tenma after being badly wounded]] is [[TheDeterminator admirably badass]], it could hardly be called a rational decision.
* Exedore/Exsedol from the ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' and ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' universes, though he has his emotional moments, too.
* Fate from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' is a villainous version of this.
* Paul von Oberstein from ''Anime/LegendOfGalacticHeroes'' is a good example of this trope.
* L from ''Manga/DeathNote'' is a surprisingly good one, too. There's a minor deviation in that he sometimes informs people of his emotions, even though he doesn't display them unless the situation's truly dire. Near also qualifies. Mello? Not at all...

Added DiffLines:

* Bean of the ''Literature/EndersGame'' series. The International Fleet is looking for the best student to command their entire navy, and the two runners-up are Bean and Ender. Eventually it becomes clear that though Bean is as smart as Ender and more ruthlessly logical ([[spoiler:due to having been genetically altered for greater intelligence]]), Ender is the more effective commander because he empathizes and associates with his sub-commanders and troops. As a result, Ender's soldiers have greater morale and willingness to follow their leader into deep battle than Bean's, turning the advantage in Ender's direction even with identical commands.

* Professor Arturo in ''Series/{{Sliders}}'' is clearly The Spock of the group. Arturo is cold, logical and always put first the ethical action (especially regarding the alteration of the universe they visit) over the well being of the other characters and himself.

Arturo is cold, logical and always put first the ethical action (especially regarding the alteration of the universe they visit) over the well being of the other characters and himself. When JohnRhysDavies left the show his ReplacementScrappy Maggie Beckett kept more or less the same role as a cold-hearted military-trained character that often thinks in survival than anything else.
