* Chrono of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' has the same serious expression when he's giving orders, instructions, [[TheComicallySerious jokes]], [[ComplimentBackfire compliments, and criticisms]], though he mellows out after the TimeSkip. According to the [[AllThereInTheManual Sound Stages]], he was even more of a stoic before meeting [[OfficialCouple Amy]]. He subsequently lightens up more after Fate is adopted into his family as his younger sister, and in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'', it's suggested that he's closer to being like a kid than he was in his actual childhood.

** Vietnam is even more qualified then Japan in this category. Not only does she express little emotion but is rumoured to not even know how to smile.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': [[BigBad Sephiroth]] from . In the original games, everyone else is usually made to run in cutscenes just to save time, and presumably you're not supposed to think they're really running. Sephiroth walks. In the movie ''Advent Children'', he never blinks and hardly ever grunts or breathes during the whole intensive battle scene he gets. Appearing preternaturally unaffected is the most distinctive behavioural trait he has. ''Crisis Core, the prequel, portrays him as a SugarAndIcePersonality instead

* ''TowardTheTerra'' pushes this trope to the extreme with [[AntiVillain Keith Anyan]], who only ever seems to emote significantly when being mentally tortured while unconscious. Even when psychics note that his heart is "overflowing with tears," he maintains a cool facade. The most disturbing manifestation of this may be when [[spoiler:his subordinate [[HeroicSacrifice takes a killing blow for him]]]]. When Keith revives from his state of near death, his reaction to [[spoiler:the dismembered corpse bleeding on the floor next to him]] is impassive and apparently insensitive, but we later see that the event has fundamentally affected his misanthropic worldview and eventually leads at least in part to [[spoiler:his HeelFaceTurn]].

** Protagonist Heero Yuy is stoic, but calling him '''The''' Stoic isn't quite right ({{Kuudere}} is more appropriate). While he thinks that emotions get you killed on the battlefield, he says they're needed the rest of the time. He exhibits a normal (if subdued) emotional range ([[http://aboutgundamwing.com/SC/SC06/vlcsnap-75159.jpg surprise]], [[http://aboutgundamwing.com/SC/SC34/vlcsnap-81467.jpg fear]], and [[http://aboutgundamwing.com/SC/SC48/vlcsnap-239993.jpg happiness]]), and his self-stated life philosophy is "Live by your emotions". Most of the confusion stems from English voice actor MarkHildreth being told to play the character as stiff and robotic, combined with {{Flanderization}}; this is obviously less of a problem in the Japanese version, where Creator/HikaruMidorikawa delivered a subdued but still emotional performance.
