* In ''Series/TheBorgias'', Machiavelli is a DeadpanSnarker and always calm, even when dealing with the threat of Florence's invasion (and/or excommunication) or fanatics vandalizing his house. This makes him an exception to the series' WorldOfHam tendencies.

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', Rokuro tends to show little expression and goes around getting things done quietly. When he's not being a jerk to Saizo, Sasuke is pretty stoic too.

* ''Manga/{{Golgo 13}}''. Duke Togo's famous lack of expression whether facing impossible odds or having sex with women is a RunningGag. The only time this changes is when [[OhCrap something goes seriously wrong on a hit]], which is not often with such a CrazyPrepared InvincibleHero. In "Telepath" when a bodyguard with PsychicPowers causes Golgo to miss his target, someone quips, "I would like to have seen his expression when he missed... I bet it was the first expression he ever had!"

* MOVIE! Major Kusanagi from ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' rarely displays much emotion at all. If you do manage to make her angry, though, be ''very'' afraid. In the series and manga she's snarky and amused by the antics of her squadmates. She becomes this trope only when things get really serious.

* ''FanFic/{{Domoverse}}'': Isaac. Having grown up Amish, he learned that fighting back was evil and to trust in God. So after being kidnapped he quietly worked for the villain believing that it wouldn't be too bad, and once he was done he could go home. When he learned he wasn't going home and he was working for a mass murderer, he simply refused to work, prayed until he collapsed from exhaustion, didn't resist being beaten and only drank water. Even after Sadist got creative and forced Isaac to work, he kept his stoic resolve. [[spoiler:He was eventually broken, but even then a glimmer of the stoicism remained as he planned the destruction of Sadist.]]

** Their reputation for onstage stoicism wasn't aided by the long running rumour, that Fernando Abrantes, who was a member for a brief period around 1990, was sacked for being ''too'' active on stage.

* In ''Series/WolfHall'', Thomas Cromwell rarely betrays his emotions casually. He lets his guard down to some extent around Cardinal Wolsey, but even when he's angry or threatening someone it manifests as TranquilFury. This is in sharp contrast to the passionate and sometimes bombastic royals and nobles around him, and when he insults them (as occasionally happens) they're left puzzled because he uses the same tone as he would to inform them of the day's schedule.
