** Though Tywin is ''very'' often contemptuous and snarky, he has little emotional range beyond this. However he does show more emotion than in the novels, where he only loses his icy cold demeanor once, when Tyrion asks him to acknowledge his rights to Casterly Rock. TV!Tywin loses his temper (though never his control) in several episodes, either because he's SurroundedByIdiots or putting his children in line, and once even gives a genuine (albeit short) laugh.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', this is Subverted by the [[LizardFolk Argonians]]. Other races ''believe'' Argonians to be this, assuming them to have no emotions or feelings. This is largely attributed to their lack of facial muscles needed to display human-like facial expressions. Anyone who pays attention to their voices can quickly deduce that this is simply not true. Even those who barely understand the languages of Men and [[OurElvesAreBetter Mer]] can have strong emotion in their voices.

* Kannami Yûichi in ''Anime/TheSkyCrawlers'' seems laid back more than anything, but never acts any differently, whether he's gulping beer with his buddies, in the middle of a dogfight or learning [[spoiler:that he is an immortal clone-soldier, and has been killed countless of times, only to be resurrected with full set of skills but no personal memories.]]

* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'': The titular Princess Zelda in the majority of her appearances keeps a cool head regardless of how bad her situation is. Particularly the iteration in ''Videogame/TwilightPrincess'', where she endures her captivity by Zant and watching him seize control of Hyrule with a StiffUpperLip. This makes Zelda's HeroicBSOD CryIntoChest during [[spoiler:a flashback]] in ''Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' even ''more'' powerful as a result.

Flat affect takes this UpToEleven in being the total absence of any emotional reactivity.

* Ren Akiyama/Kamen Rider Knight from ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'' is calm, collected TheQuietOne who only rarely expresses how everything going on inside him tears him apart. Things got ugly when [[SoullessShell he]] [[HeroicBSOD snapped]].
** Ren's counterpart, [[Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight Len/Kamen Rider Wing Knight]], has this as a default way of dealing with anyone outside of his TrueCompanions to whom he is more like BigBrotherMentor.
* Haruto Soma/''Series/KamenRiderWizard'' is amiable StepfordSmiler, but that doesn't change anything about the fact that most of his expression are subtle to the point of DullSurprise.
* Kaito Kumon/[[Series/KamenRiderGaim Kamen Rider Baron]] keeps this up unless something gets him sufficiently angry. Things get hilarious when he is replaced with a [[GenkiGirl Genki Guy]] impostor.
* Machine Chaser/Chase/[[Series/KamenRiderDrive Kamen Rider Chaser]] is this to a ComicallySerious degree. Expressing emotions is simply not a part of his programming in contrast to other [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Roimundes]].
* Taiga Hanaya/Kamen Rider Snipe shows only two expressions through the early part of ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' - apathetic and smug. He starts to lose the attitude after being stuck with [[GenkiGirl Nico]] [[TastesLikeDiabetes Saiba]], who is very good at provoking people into showing emotion. This culminates in him getting so angry at her that he had to dragged out of the room.

* ''Series/UchuSentaiKyuranger'': There is a [[HurtingHero lot going on inside]] Stinger/Sasori Orange, but he is not going to let anyone know if he can help it. [[spoiler: Talking about his brother cracks his composure. Also, his brother [[HeroicBSOD broke it]] himself in #16.]]
