** 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.

Things get hilarious when he is replaced with a [[GenkiGirl Genki Guy]] impostor.



* ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'': Takeru Shiba/Shinken Red can keep his composure through anything and does so to remain withdrawn from everyone. This is one of the reasons he didn't want [[ManicPixieGirl Genta Umemori]] on the team. He knew there is no way to keep straight face around him.

* ''Series/MillionYenWomen'': Shin doesn't show much reaction to the various unusual situations that get imposed upon him, be it having someone invite five women he doesn't know to live in his house, some of said women making a move on him, [[spoiler:a couple of them getting killed]] or [[spoiler:one of them turning out to be behind the invitations and the murders]].



** This also shows during the first major crisis of the crew, that ends up netting them a LittleStowaway. Young man turns out to be in a newly delivered food crate? Lalli couldn't care less (though the panel preceding the reveal hints he already new someone was in there). Upon a closer look, the young man in question turns out to share an unusal hairstyle with that stranger Lalli spotted in the mage-exlcusive dreamspace a couple of days ago? Lalli may have spent an hour or two continously staring at him at first, but is all but ignoring him by the next morning.

* Sebastian in ''Webcomic/TheBackOBeyond'' manages to restrain his emotions extremely well around the captain of the pirates immediately after [[spoiler: his father's death.]] However, he does have some NotSoStoic moments when he's alone.

* ''Literature/TheHeartsWeSold'': Most of the time, the only emotion the Daemon shows is mild annoyance or bemusement with his charges. If he shows any feeling beyond that, you either did something really impressive, or you really, ''really'' fucked up.

* Saitama, from "Anime/OnePunchMan" is usually portrayed as nonchalant throughout the entire series. When he fights monsters, he always has a deadpan look on his face as he one-shots the monster into oblivion. No matter what he does, or who he faces, he doesn't feel anything at all. He has occasionally expressed emotions at various times, but for the most part, he is bored when it comes to a variety of things.

* 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.

* All artificial humans in ''ComicBook/{{Copperhead}}'' are engineered to be this, preventing their emotions from reducing combat effectiveness. Most of them consider it an advantage.

** Androids 16, 17, and 18. 17 is the least stoic of the trio since he often wears a cocky smirk. 18 rarely shows any emotion even around her husband. [[WhenSheSmiles She does opens up and smiles when around her daughter]], though. 16 is the most serious, only showing his feelings when around animals. In contrast, future Androids 17 and 18 are completely AxCrazy. Ironically enough, Androids 17 and 18 have their roles reversed in the SequelSeries DragonballSuper - Android 18 has pretty much [[DefrostingIceQueen completely defrosted]] and Android 17 is TheComicallySerious.

* [=DCI=] Foyle of ''Series/FoylesWar'' has very strong feelings--most notably an unswerving moral compass--but is incredibly calm and collected in almost every circumstance. Even when angry, it manifests as TranquilFury or DisappointedInYou, and he rarely ever raises his voice regardless of the dangerous people he confronts. (Though he does admit to having enjoyed himself when he punches a looter of bombed houses.)
