** In "[[Recap/SherlockS04E03TheFinalProblem The Final Problem]]", Mycroft expresses doubt that he has a heart, and suggests it's probably quite small in any case, after [[spoiler:acting like a heartless jerk to spare Sherlock's feelings and [[HeroicSacrifice trying to sacrifice himself for John's sake]].]]

* MarvelComics' ''{{ComicBook/Livewires}}'' miniseries inverts this. Nanomachine construct and massive [[TheWoobie Woobie]] Stem Cell is activated with accurate, perfectly-simulated human emotions, being based on a RidiculouslyHumanRobot Life Model Decoy. By the climax, she's nearly paralyzed with fear and, in a last-ditch effort to finish her mission and save her team, physically hacks her own control system to turn herself into a surreally optimistic robot badass. The other Livewires constructs had actually already done so in the series backstory.
* Also in Marvel Comics, the [[Comicbook/TheAvengers Avenger's]] member TheVision started as an "inhuman vision", an android sent to kill the Avengers. And throughout his time with the team, he developed more and more human feelings, to the point where he fell in love, got married, and had kids (too long to explain).

* Played with in "The Tin Man" by Music/KennyChesney. The narrator says that he "wishes [he] were the Tin Man" so that he could have no feelings and avoid the emotions of a broken heart.

* The [[FinalFantasyI Warrior of Light]] of ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' comes across as detached and robotic to both players and some of the characters. But despite how placid and emotionless he appears, he's actually an honorable, caring and highly intuitive young man. While on the surface he does what he can to not give in to negative emotions, even his immaculate countenance can slip occasionally.

* Wyatt Cain of the SciFi Miniseries ''Series/TinMan''. The human version of the original Baum character, his heart hardened by his family's deaths and his imprisonment in what is dubbed 'The Tin Suit.' He's called "Tin Man" by various characters because [[CallARabbitASmeerp it's the Outer Zone's term for police officers]]. Once released, his one and only goal in life is to take revenge on the man who he blames for the destruction of his life. [[spoiler: By the end of the miniseries, he has been reunited with his lost son, who actually wasn't dead.]]

* In ''[[{{WebOriginal/Takotsubo}} Takotsubo: The story of a superhero,]]'' Cord Cai [[InvokedTrope invokes this]] when he uses "Tin Man" as his gang alias. PlayedForDrama since like the original Tin Man, [[BreakTheCutie he lost his fiance,]] and he only starts a gang because [[TragicVillain he thinks he can't escape the streets]]. Hearts are a big motif--"Takotsubo" means "broken heart syndrome," Cord has a broken-heart tribal tattoo and wears a giant red heart necklace as the Tin Man, and [[BatSignal the city uses his magical broken-heart graffiti tags to call for help]].

* Jon Irenicus, the BigBad from ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII: Shadows of Amn'', was punished for his transgressions basically by removing his soul. This left him drained of all almost emotion; he would display arrogance and a bit of incredulity as the story progressed, and shallow bursts of anger, but that was about it. However bad he had been before, his complete lack of empathy for other sentient beings made him even worse. He desired to regain or even remember the love he had once felt, but the ways he went about trying to do this were unsuccesful and [[{{squick}} extremely creepy]].
