Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfiction/ChrysalisVisitsTheHague'', the pathologist Edith is described like that by other characters, even getting nicknamed "Pokerface". Noticeably, this even becomes obvious in the parts told from her own perspective:
--> ''"It was obvious that [[[spoiler:Princess Luna]]] had expected more of a visceral reaction out of the forensic.''
--> '''Ive seen worse.' [Edith] repeated, all while trying not to sound too heartless."''

* Dredd in ''Film/{{Dredd}}'', very much, and Anderson in the same film becomes one over the course of the story. Dredd in ''Film/JudgeDredd'', not so much, because of the actor's LargeHam tendencies.

* Dredd in ''Film/{{Dredd}}'', very much, and Anderson in the same film becomes one over the course of the story. Dredd in ''Film/JudgeDredd'', not so much, because of the actor's LargeHam tendencies. Best exemplified with his "I am the Law" CatchPhrase; in the former it's threatening and soft-spoken, in the latter loud and unintelligible.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheGoodShepherd'': Edward Wilson is almost emotionally dead. This was possibly the result of witnessing his father's suicide, but as an adult he's closed off to his wife (whom he doesn't love anyway) and his son, barely has a reaction when his mentor is killed, and even sends his son's lover to her death with no remorse.

* Bobby Jacks of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' very much embodied this trope, at least in pregrame. During version 3, he has, however, shown emotion a couple of times. On the other hand, most of these occurrences happened either when he was alone or internally - so other characters wouldn't be privy to the same knowledge as readers. The three occasions where Bobby shows real emotion are [[JustifiedTrope justified]] however. Once because he had just been shot, the other two times because his BerserkButton was pushed.

* ''TheGuild'' has Vork, although due to it being a comedy web-series, it's more in the TheComicallySerious

He can be in the middle of a gunfight, his best friend's bachelor party, or a helpless witness to the death of everyone and everything he holds dear... and he'll show all the emotional reaction of a victim of a Botox overdose. They can be {{Heroes}}, antagonists or [[AntiHero anti-heroes]]. On TheTeam he will contrast the HotBlooded. His quiet demeanor tends towards the brusque or outright rudeness, though there are a few [[NiceGuy polite]] Stoics. Some stoics may try to give the impression of a lot going on inside and cultivate an air of mystery and to confuse other characters with cryptic one-liners.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/CodeGeassColorlessMemories'' Rai the main character he tends to remain calm, act in a sedate manner and seems to be generally introverted Rai gives off more than a hint of this trope in general.
** Though Rai has a few NotSoStoic moments sprinkled in the fic, most potently in Chapter 17 when he is finally reunited with [[spoiler: E.E his contractor whom he smiled and rushed over to her which threw E.E off track for a second.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Among the Chaos Space Marines, the Iron Warriors have a reputation for this. Not for them the crazed excess of the Emperor's Children or the maniacal cackling of, well, most other Chaos forces; instead, if they're showing emotion, it's usually murderous anger or deep resentment, and otherwise they're cold and calculating.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheBitterTeaOfGeneralYen'': Even with his army destroyed and his life practically in ruins, General Yen takes it with grace and his characteristic calmness.
* ''Film/BlondieJohnson'': Blondie is this for the majority of the film.

* [[BigBad Cutler Beckett]] from PiratesOfTheCaribbean shows little emotion other than cold-blooded condescension, even when he's got a ''loaded gun'' pointed at his face by someone who very clearly wants to have any excuse to pull the trigger. This stands out in particular compared to [[WorldOfHam the rest of the cast]].

* Captain Ray Holt from ''Series/BrooklynNineNine''. Colleagues he's had for years still find him near impossible to read; he wears exactly the same expression whether he just returned from a relaxing tropical vacation with his husband, or if a fire destroyed treasured heirlooms.
** Of course, [[NotSoStoic if he gets angry]], you WILL know.

** Detective Rosa Diaz is aggressively unreadable and despises emotions in general. The only emotion she'll frequently display is a HairTriggerTemper.
