* 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.
* Greg from [[Website/BecomingABetterWriter The Wolf's Will]] has his moments of stoicism, but he has absolutely nothing on Free Flower from the same book, or on Beatrice from Demonic Symphony.
** WordOfGod has it that the last two are actually incapable of feeling emotion.
* Wyn from the web fiction serial ''Literature/DimensionHeroes'' seems to slip in and out of this trope: sometimes he feels like talking, and other times he'll simply stand around and look cool.
* ''WebVideo/{{Shrooms}}'' has Blue Shroom, who is consistently light on emotion, a great contrast to Red's histrionic personality and antics. Which makes sense, as Blue is the only character in the series without animated facial expressions.
* ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee'' has Sad Panda, who as multiple commentaries note, reacts visibly to ''absolutely nothing''.
* ''TheGuild'' has Vork, although due to it being a comedy web-series, it's more in the TheComicallySerious
* Blaire from ''WebVideo/TheSecretLifeOfAMermaid'' life is hard: her mom abandoned her and her dad at one years old and she's used as a personal information guide to the others about her mom, (which is a very tough subject for her). When her dad gets suspicious of her, he bans her from seeing her only friends, which promote her to run away with Terra, probably forever and yet, she goes through all this with no expressions except for a smile!
** Kelsey is the most level-headed member of the group, although she is sometimes NotSoStoic.
** Brenna became practically an EmotionlessGirl in Wildfire, to the point where Kelsey points this out.
--> Kelsey: " Okay, first you lash out when we were playing yesterday. Then, you turned all emo. And, now you hair's purple!"
--> Brenna: (in a monotonous voice) " It's purple?" (Looks at her hair) "Huh. Guess it is,"
* Donut from ''WebAnimation/DusksDawn'' doesn't emote outside of assertiveness, inquisition and disappointment.

* [[GeneratorRex Six]] through and through. He smiles all of three or four times throughout the entire series, and it's only a tiny deviation from his normal expression.

* Hazuki Sakurazaka, the head {{Meido}}, from ''NogizakaHarukaNoHimitsu'' usually puts up a stoic appearance and monotone voice. Even when she's drunk, and accidentally bashing her head to the wall (or the electric post), she always had the same stoic feel around her.

* Kate Kane, the second ComicBook/{{Batwoman}}, has been one her whole life. Becoming a soldier essentially locked in that aspect of her personality, and she generally avoids showing much emotion unless extremely stressed.

** The Sniper's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vptexno3Hc domination lines]] reveal, aside from his [[FriendlySniper normal, cheerful side]], that he can be both [[ColdSniper incredibly stoic]] and [[SociopathicHero incredibly insane]]. And in the Meet The Sniper video, he claims that emotions are what a guy who beats up his wife over a bowling trophy has. He is a professional, and professionals have ''standards.''

* Yuki Nagato from ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' has '''''NO''''' facial expressions. ''Ever''. This isn't even a question of why she doesn't do it, it's more like she does not have expressions because her body is an interface and wasn't programed for it. If she talks, it's always monotone. She avoids being creepy, by bringing loads and loads of [[BadassBookworm badass-ness]] and [[TheWoobie hug-urges]]. As we know from CharacterDevelopment, she ''has'' emotions (which is an important aspect of her characterization) and Kyon has taken to trying to read her emotional state. Pondering what she is feeling and why are questions for both Kyon and the reader. [[spoiler: In ''Disappearance'', Koizumi also observes possible changes in Yuki and Kyon suggests that Haruhi may also have noticed Yuki's emotions. In ''Surprise'' Ryoko, back from deletion, also observes that Yuki has moved beyond being a "mere terminal," asking Emiri if she and Emiri would ever attain that state.]]
