The Stoic [[NotSoStoic sometimes displays emotion]] when under extreme stress or in other highly emotional situations, but their usual repertoire consists of mild boredom, detached interest, DullSurprise or dignified disdain. He may be a DeadpanSnarker, or have NoSenseOfHumor. If he ever shows true emotion, it's likely to be explosive in its intensity or incredibly subtle and full of EmotionalTorque. The tougher sort of stoic may hide it so thoroughly that only his BadDreams show any of it. Opposed to FrozenFace, where the emotions appear absent because they do not alter his expression, even in the highly emotional situations. A few stoics might calmly pipe up that [[DidYouThinkICantFeel they have feelings and opinions too]], they just aren't effusive about it.

** Ned Stark, who was played by Sean Bean, the grand master of cinematic stoic deaths.
** Stannis Baratheon, who is so ridiculously stoic that it can be quite funny/[[Narm narmy]] and/or makes you you wonder if [[AmbiguousDisorder there's something wrong with him]]. Things that have not made Stannis Baratheon show emotion: killing his brother, ordering the deaths of men and going into battle completely unprepared, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming getting glomped by his beloved daughter]], watching said beloved daughter die horribly and discovering his wife's body, and getting stabbed to death.

** Stoicism is one of the reasons the Hound is so popular. He is brutally honest and gives precisely no f**ks, but it is also clear from context that his life has been dominated by a psychopathic maniac ( the Mountain) who spent their collective childhood brutalising him.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has Link mostly stoic and there's a backstory as to why he is that way. [[spoiler: 100 years prior to the plot, Link was picked to be Zelda's royal knight and it put a lot pressure on him. In order to avoid being a letdown or say something he could regret, Link chose to act stoic and never speak in order to maintain his professional demeanor. Once he and Zelda start to open up to each other, it turns out Link isn't quite so stoic since he loves to eat a hearty meal and can be a bit of a glutton.]]
