* In ''Series/NewTricks'', Danny riffs on this while his partner is PerpSweating two mob flunkies, simply by hovering in the background in [[EvilWearsBlack all-black clothes]] and [[ConspicuousGloves gloves]], speaking {{soft|SpokenSadist}}ly, and fiddling with a bag of [[NoodleImplements household tools]]. Somehow, his colleagues avoid laughing at the act long enough for the flunkies to talk.

* The ''Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse Literature/NewSeriesAdventures'' novel ''In the Blood'' has an interesting twist on the "clinical and emotionless" version, with a ManInBlack alien who is actually TheSpock, from an agrarian world of peace and harmony, and is also an utterly conscienceless torturer and killer. Apparently, when you're part of a tranquil and passive HiveMind you don't ''need'' a conscience to maintain it, and when he arrived on Earth he saw [[HumansAreBastards what humans do to each other and other animals]] and just accepted that if this was how our society worked...

** Disturbingly, in the virtual alternate reality of [[LotusEaterMachine the Framework]], Fitz is one himself. In his position as NumberTwo and chief MadScientist of HYDRA, he personally carries out the torture and experimentation of Inhumans in order to study their powers. His cool, disconnected attitude about it is the most frightening aspect of it all.

* Yamori from ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' is this, when he isn't out being TheBrute. It isn't clear what he was like prior to being imprisoned by [[TheHunter CCG]], but during his captivity he became the victim of a sadistic Investigator and [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil tortured]] until he went insane. When he finally escaped, he had taken on his tormentor's personality and became a [[Franchise/FridayThe13th hockey-mask wearing]] sadist nicknamed "Jason" for his brutality. He keeps a [[TortureCellar "hobby room"]] and hunts for other Ghouls to make his playthings.

* TheHunter Valerie Gray briefly turns into this in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', torturing Danny for ghost information, mostly of the ElectricTorture variety. Danny's hurt, but he refuses to tell, focusing on the true matter at hand (His OppositeSexClone).

*** Interestingly enough, and feeding the theme of the repentant torturer, is that one of the interrogations that Garak was proudest of involved no physical violence whatsoever: he simply stared at a prisoner until he confessed.
