** In the first season finale, Catelyn, mourning her husband, very nearly bashes in the Kingslayer's head with a convenient rock. Also apparent when she calmly but fiercely calls upon her father's bannermen to stage a citizen's arrest of Tyrion Lannister, who she blames for the attempt on Bran's life.

** The lightsaber form [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Form_VII/Legends Vaapad]] is essentially this trope applied to lightsabers. As the form ''is'' channeling something inherently close to TheDarkSide, it's considered a very dangerous technique or fighting style for Jedi, but for those who favor the Dark Side (like Darth Maul), it suits them perfectly.

** Similarly, [[Literature/HorusHeresy we have]] the [[SemiDivine Primarch]] Perturabo, who has this as his standard emotion, in no small part due to the bitterness and frustration he had by being overshadowed by his brother and rival, [[BoringButPractical Rogal Dorn]]. Both had similar but uncomplimentary skills regarding [[TheSiege siege warfare]] (Rogal knew best on how to defend and hold out, Pert knew best on how to force a surrender or a decisive victory). Pert's subordinates were terrified of him, because he could [[MoodSwinger swing from]] this and UnstoppableRage from a moment's notice, and he had a tendency to take it out [[BadBoss on said subordinates]].

* On January 27, 1967, astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee were killed when a fire broke out in the cockpit during a routine test on the launch pad. The Monday after the fire, Flight Director Gene Kranz called everyone at Mission Control in for a meeting and gave everyone the biggest ass-chewing that they had ever experienced. The speech he gave that day became known as the Kranz Dictum:

** When Daenerys discovers that the masters of Meereen are taunting her by crucifying a slave child on every milepost to the city, she remains perfectly calm. Her voice and face, however, make it perfectly clear that the responsible ones are going to ''suffer'' for this.
--> '''Barristan:''' I'll tell our men to ride ahead and bury them. You don't need to see this.
--> '''Daenerys:''' You will do no such thing. I ''will'' see each and every one of their faces.

* The eponymous Afro in ''Anime/AfroSamurai'' uses this to call upon his subconscious to come up with an on-the-fly fighting style to counter his ''MirrorMatch'' robot double. It could be argued that Afro is in a constant state of quiet rage for the entire series.



* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'''s Giorno Giovanna can seem calm at the most tense of moments, but really, he is just plotting your demise in a very sneaky and sometimes quite horrific way. The best example of this is [[spoiler:once he gains Gold Experience Requiem and faces off with Diavolo floating in the air with his new stand]].
** In the anime adaptation of ''Stardust Crusaders,'' Polnareff enters this state after accepting [[spoiler:Avdol and Iggy died saving him]] when facing Vanilla Ice for the last time. It's striking, given Polnareff's usual buffoonish and blubbering demeanor, to see him [[CurbStompBattle calmly rip into him]] and then quietly deduce his transformation into a vampire, defeating him with a gentle shove into the setting sun.

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'''s Giorno Giovanna can seem calm at Levi in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' genuinely showed so little emotion that the only way to tell if he is angry is through the shadowing of his eyes and his tone. For example, when speaking to [[spoiler:the Female Titan]], his voice is icy and it's clear he is ticked off that some of his soldiers were killed. And again, when he sees [[spoiler:his personal squad being killed by the Female Titan]], his eyes are shadowed ''almost completely black'' before he eventually unleashed hell on [[spoiler:the Female Titan]] while showing [[NotSoStoic the most tense of moments, but really, emotion]] he is just plotting your demise in a very sneaky probably will ever while still containing himself and sometimes quite horrific way. The best example his desire for revenge.
** He's like an evil version
of this is [[spoiler:once he gains Gold Experience Requiem and faces off Batman: whenever a regular person would scream at a spineless coward to suck it up, or passionately torment a captain to spill the beans, Levi does that without the emotion showing. His usual suck it up speeches involve choking or otherwise threatening death while calmly explaining the do-or-die decision the person has to make. His usual torment interrogation involves crippling his victim while simultaneously debating with Diavolo floating the victim's point-of-view.
** Turns out his father taught him that. [[spoiler:Kenny]] REALLY hates his son, enough to pull twin guns in an otherwise fair fight, but remains focused and humorous while going on a regular murderous rampage after him.
* Luck Gandor demonstrates Tranquil Fury
in the air first ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}!'' light novel, in contrast to his brother Berga's furniture-smashing rage over the deaths of several of their men. When Berga rejects Luck's request for him to calm down, Luck patiently explains -- while gripping a piece of broken wood hard enough to draw blood from his own hand -- that he is in fact very angry, and that he wants to rip those responsible to pieces with his new stand]].
** In
own hands, and that he is keeping himself occupied with thinking over the anime adaptation details lest he go on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge and possibly even kill police or innocent bystanders if they got in the way. He then asks his brother to shoot him if it's necessary to keep him from doing so; all the while, his expression never changes, and by the time he's done Berga apologizes and says that Luck needs to calm down even more than he himself does.
** [[BigBrotherMentor Maiza]] also exhibits Tranquil Fury, although not to such a dramatic degree as the above, when a police officer makes the mistake
of ''Stardust Crusaders,'' Polnareff enters this state [[BigBrotherInstinct insulting Firo in his presence]].
* Though his signature reaction to most serious situations is UnstoppableRage, Guts from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' often starts out with Tranquil Fury. When he [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice confronts]] the man who [[spoiler:tortured and mutilated Griffith for a year]], Guts [[http://www.mangareader.net/berserk/10/144 gives an expression that is on the same level of creepiness]] as his signature SlasherSmile, just to show how dangerously enraged he is inside.
** Another time came in volume 17, when a possessed and demonized horse is about to rape Farnese, who was Guts' hostage at the time. This scene was [[BerserkButton particularly triggering for Guts]], as [[spoiler: it reminded him of the rape of his lover Casca by Griffith]] and so
after accepting [[spoiler:Avdol brutally decapitating the demon horse, he rather creepily and Iggy died saving him]] when facing Vanilla Ice nonchalantly chastises Farnese for reminding him of his past, and goes onto saying in flat voice, "Thanks. Now I'm in a ''really'' bad mood. I've got until dawn to kill all of you." Cue to the last time. next morning, where everything in Guts' radius save for Farnese is obliterated.

It's striking, given Polnareff's usual buffoonish and blubbering demeanor, to see him [[CurbStompBattle calmly rip into him]] and then quietly deduce his transformation into a vampire, defeating him with a gentle shove into rather telling that the setting sun.few times when Puck gets really scared of Guts are when he reacts [[SlasherSmile gleefully to the prospect of violence]] or when he becomes horrifyingly calm.



* Revy's "Whitman Fever" from ''Manga/BlackLagoon'', which is more of a relapse of AxCrazy than anger -- when she starts to look like she's sleep-deprived and ''stops'' yelling and swearing, there will be blood and there will be lots of it.
** And [[LadyOfWar Balalaika]] is almost always calm, controlled and polite, even when she's furious.



* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** Monkey D. Luffy is a master of this, especially in the original Japanese. There are few times when Luffy will go in screaming and rip roaring mad, though to look at him you'd suppose otherwise. His most angry, serious look tends to be blank eyes.
*** Perhaps the best example of this is during his fight with [[spoiler:Rob Lucci]]. After fighting a mostly even battle (With the assistance of Gear Second), [[spoiler:Lucci brings out an attack that causes severe internal damage, even to a Rubberman like Luffy. Then he hits him with it AGAIN. Luffy is near death, until Usopp gives him his own WorldOfCardboardSpeech, and he gets back up, glaring down Lucci whilst saying, in a completely calm tone, 'Until I beat you, [[{{Determinator}} I am not going down again.]]']]
*** Another memorable example is when [[spoiler:the World Noble Charloss]] shoots [[spoiler:Hachi]], leaving him bleeding out on the steps of a slave auction. Luffy adopts a DeathGlare, but otherwise forgoes his usual RoaringRampageOfRevenge. Instead, he calmly walks up the stairs, dodging bullets with almost no visible movement (''without Gear Second''), and punches [[spoiler:Charloss]] (''without even the use of his rubber'') hard enough to send him across the building. This, all the while knowing that [[spoiler:striking a World Nobles is considered a declaration of war against the entire world but Luffy had zero fucks about that load of horseshit]].
** Whitebeard is known for [[UnstoppableRage going apeshit over anyone harming his]] "[[AFatherToHisMen sons]]". Killing one of them is a different story. In fact, it's this trope when [[spoiler:[[MagmaMan Akainu]] kills Portgas D. Ace, and Whitebeard silently but brutally punishes him by using a MegatonPunch and sending him through a fault with his earthquake-powers. The only words he said were after Akainu ''[[OnlyAFleshWound burnt half his face off]]'': "I'm just getting started". Fittingly, the chapter was called ''Silent Rage'']]. Of course the Marines promptly shit themselves knowing what kind of force Whitebeard tends to be.
* In ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}},'' Shiki's occasional bouts of homicidal insanity come in a variety of flavors, depending on what triggers them. His usual version tends to be a "cold" fury, and he rarely if ever falls prey to a "hot" fury.
** There's a convenient scale on Arcueid's path: [[spoiler:Killing Arcueid? Definitely heated fury. Killing Nero? Middle-ground. Killing Roa? Pure calm]].

* This is said to be the highest state of mind for a fighter in ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam,'' a serene calm that cannot be broken by the strongest of maelstroms. It is through this rather than his trademark UnstoppableRage that Domon Kasshu finally manages to become truly worthy of his status.\\

This is a state of mind only- Domon becomes arguably more hotblooded when his Hyper Mode activates. I guess his is a hot blood tempered controlled, but not stemmed, by calm. It also demonstrated the difference between excitement and flat out anger.

After he kills the henchmen that have turned against him with a [[GatlingGood gatling gun]], Kenshin runs at him. Due to the efforts of said henchmen, the gun jams, and the guy starts begging for mercy. Kenshin replies by screaming "If you value your life, PRAY TO YOUR BELOVED MONEY!!" before smashing the guy's face in.
** And again in the Kyoto Arc. During the fight with Chou "Sword Hunter" Sawagejou, Chou makes as if to impale an infant on his sword, in an effort to break Kenshin's concentration. It works. Sort of. Kenshin does indeed lose his focus, but instead of forgetting about Chou's special attack, [[spoiler:Kenshin instead forgets that he doesn't want Chou's cervical vertebrae to part ways.

** Good November 11 example would be after his partner, April,

* ''Manga/FruitsBasket'': When Tohru's {{Jerkass}} cousin calls Tohru a "little tramp" in front of Yuki and Kyo, Yuki calmly
gets badly injured. As he watches her at the hospital, in his face is no longer and stuns said cousin and his perpetual smirk, or even the expected rage; it's expressionless, although slightly glum. This is DullSurprise made terrifying.equally-jerkish parents speechless with a single sentence, in his usual stoic manner:
-->'''Yuki''': Don't you ''ever'' talk about Miss Honda that way again, you ''lowlife''.



* When switching on his blue lantern, Randel Oland from ''Anime/PumpkinScissors'', enters a trance that focuses him single-mindedly on his goal, making him impervious to pain and turning him into a fearless, heartless, lethal automaton. He only retains enough humanity to know when to switch it off, and then he returns to normal.

* About 3/5 of the way through [[Anime/GaoGaiGar King of Braves GaoGaiGar]], GGG takes on the first major BigBad, [[spoiler:EI-01, aka Pasder]]. After [[spoiler:being on the receiving end of a CurbStompBattle, GGG pulls out [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Projectile X]] which radically powers up the four mecha in the fight. Right before letting out one of his loudest HotBlooded screams and [[LetsGetDangerous opening the biggest can of whoop-ass in the entire series at that point]]]], Guy Shishioh AND the titular mecha [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=HUKjKrP8n-o#t=262s have that look on their faces.]]
* After spending the whole movie, and by extension 2000+ years, gripped in rage Colin from ''Anime/HighlanderTheSearchForVengeance'' finally manages to control his emotions to kill the big bad in a couple of seconds.
* ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' has done this with a number of characters, such as [[spoiler:Gon. Ever since his mentor Kaito was savaged by the Chimera Ants, Gon's been getting progressively more scary quiet, to the point that people will recoil from him when he's ''just sitting there''. After finding out Kaito is KilledOffForReal, Gon has apparently [[http://www.onemanga.com/Hunter_X_Hunter/306/06/ aged ten years and unlocked incredible power]].]]
* In ''Manga/InuXBokuSS'', Soushi does this in episode 3 when two young men are insulting Ririchiyo. After dousing them with his drink, he very calmly, very politely says, "Pardon me, it's just that, you've angered me."
* ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'': Sesshoumaru is a stoic in all circumstances except where his [[HotBlooded brother]] is [[NotSoDifferent concerned]]. His tranquility even when being insulted or having his {{protectorate}} attacked is so infamous, deviation results in [[OOCISSeriousBusiness in-universe comment]].
When switching on Mouryoumaru tries to press Inuyasha's BerserkButton by insulting Kagura's death, it's Sesshoumaru who snaps; seeing Sesshoumaru's tranquil fury expand into an UnstoppableRage leaves both Inuyasha's group and Mouryoumaru himself absolutely shocked.
* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'''s Giorno Giovanna can seem calm at the most tense of moments, but really, he is just plotting your demise in a very sneaky and sometimes quite horrific way. The best example of this is [[spoiler:once he gains Gold Experience Requiem and faces off with Diavolo floating in the air with
his blue lantern, Randel Oland from ''Anime/PumpkinScissors'', new stand]].
** In the anime adaptation of ''Stardust Crusaders,'' Polnareff
enters a trance that focuses this state after accepting [[spoiler:Avdol and Iggy died saving him]] when facing Vanilla Ice for the last time. It's striking, given Polnareff's usual buffoonish and blubbering demeanor, to see him single-mindedly on his goal, making him impervious to pain and turning him [[CurbStompBattle calmly rip into a fearless, heartless, lethal automaton. He only retains enough humanity to know when to switch it off, him]] and then quietly deduce his transformation into a vampire, defeating him with a gentle shove into the setting sun.
* In ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn,'' the standard Dying Will mode is a form of UnstoppableRage, while Hyper Dying Will mode is more Tranquil Fury.
* Akira Hongo, the YAMI group's "God Fist" from ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'', has this as his way of showing when he's well and truly pissed off. As Sakaki Shio, Hongo's rival from their teen years, points out while watching [[spoiler:Hongo's fight to the death against fellow YAMI master "Demon Fist" Silcardo Junazard]], Hongo won't lose control of his emotions when
he returns gets angry -- instead, his movements in battle become colder and more precise. Specifically, he attempts to normal.[[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice use his hands as stabbing implements]] multiple times [[spoiler:[[BerserkButton after Junazard insults the memory of Hongo's dead student Sho Kanou]]]].



* ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'' had a good example with this when Ashitaka simply walks up to the dueling Mononoke and Eboshi - surrounded by the [[spoiler:blue-black glow of the demon inside him]], but still calm nonetheless. Which was preceded by a FoeTossingCharge... while he leisurely walked forward through the crowd.
* ''Manga/SailorMoon'' examples:
** The anime has the protagonist in this mode as she confronts Queen Beryl in the final scene of season one [[spoiler:after the deaths of her fellow Senshi]]. Dub hate aside, Sailor Moon's voice actress Terri Hawkes evokes this powerfully:
--->''"[[Awesome/SailorMoon I hear you, Luna. I am not afraid anymore.]]"''
** The manga has a scene with the usually very emotive Sailor Venus: Queen Beryl was about to [[PrehensileHair strangle Sailor Moon with her hair]] when Venus suddenly became ''very'' calm, [[ThatMakesMeFeelAngry announced that now she was furious]], and then first cut Beryl's hair before ''cutting her belly open with a poisonous sword''.
* ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' has done this with a number of characters, such as [[spoiler:Gon. Ever since his mentor Kaito was savaged by the Chimera Ants, Gon's been getting progressively more scary quiet, to the point that people will recoil from him when he's ''just sitting there''. After finding out Kaito is KilledOffForReal, Gon has apparently [[http://www.onemanga.com/Hunter_X_Hunter/306/06/ aged ten years and unlocked incredible power]].]]
* In ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' season 2, T.K. confronts the Digimon Emperor this way, after giving his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome He takes a whip crack from the Emperor into his face without even flinching, calmly looks at his injury then proceeds to beat the crap out of the Emperor]].



* [[BigEater Diamond]] of ''[[Manga/PokemonAdventures Pokémon Special]]''. Whenever he finds himself with less than savory characters, he will simply state that he doesn't approve of what they're doing before fighting. What really stands out though, is when he tells Pearl that he has his own mind and refuses to be bossed around without ever raising his voice.
* [[TheStoic Kakashi]] of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. After Zabuza completely disregards [[spoiler:Haku's sacrifice]] and attempts to [[spoiler:''cut right through him'' to get at his enemy]], Kakashi decides [[ItsPersonal it's now personal]]. He proceeds to destroy the previously impregnable Zabuza in four economical moves.
** After Pain [[spoiler:destroyed the village]], he came on the receiving end of [[SuperMode Sage Mode]] Naruto's Tranquil Fury. By the time he managed to get control of the battle again, Naruto had destroyed ''five'' of his bodies. Pain only triggered his UnstoppableRage ''later'', when he nearly killed [[spoiler:Hinata]].
** One way or another, it seems Zabuza is Kakashi's BerserkButton. In one manga arc [[spoiler:Zabuza and Haku's resurrected bodies were taken over]] to fight in the war and their [[spoiler:minds blanked out for greater efficiency]]. This disrespect to their friendship and sacrifice is the final straw...
--->"Look, it takes a lot to get me worked up, but this time my boiling point's as low as it's ever been. The Copy Ninja Kakashi, the man who copied one thousand techniques… is about to go on a rampage!"
** [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome We're not shown the ensuing fight,]] but it wipes out the [[spoiler:Seven Ninja Swordsmen]].
** We never see Jiraiya get truly angry during the series, but the few times he gets close to it, he hints at this trope. When Jiraiya and Tsunade talk about Orochimaru's offer, Jiraiya very coldly and calmly tells Tsunade (who, by the way, he is in love with) that if she ever betrays the leaf village, ''he will kill her.''



* In ''Manga/{{Change123}}'', if Motoko Gettou is in tranquil fury mode, then that means [[spoiler:[[SuperPoweredEvilSide Zero]] has come out to play]]. And if that said tranquil fury is directed at you, you had better start praying. ''Fast.''
* Though his signature reaction to most serious situations is UnstoppableRage, Guts from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' often starts out with Tranquil Fury. When he [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice confronts]] the man who [[spoiler:tortured and mutilated Griffith for a year]], Guts [[http://www.mangareader.net/berserk/10/144 gives an expression that is on the same level of creepiness]] as his signature SlasherSmile, just to show how dangerously enraged he is inside.
** Another time came in volume 17, when a possessed and demonized horse is about to rape Farnese, who was Guts' hostage at the time. This scene was [[BerserkButton particularly triggering for Guts]], as [[spoiler: it reminded him of the rape of his lover Casca by Griffith]] and so after brutally decapitating the demon horse, he rather creepily and nonchalantly chastises Farnese for reminding him of his past, and goes onto saying in flat voice, "Thanks. Now I'm in a ''really'' bad mood. I've got until dawn to kill all of you." Cue to the next morning, where everything in Guts' radius save for Farnese is obliterated.
** It's rather telling that the few times when Puck gets really scared of Guts are when he reacts [[SlasherSmile gleefully to the prospect of violence]] or when he becomes horrifyingly calm
* The end of the first arc of the ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'' anime has Mikoto, a {{Tsundere}} with ShockAndAwe powers [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4HfgsWZZtk going Tranquil Fury on the AIM Burst]]. You can pick your jaw off the floor now.
* In ''Manga/SoulEater'' Black*Star, a HotBlooded IdiotHero, is most dangerous when [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness he's not yelling at you]].
* In episode 22 of ''Manga/FairyTail'', after [[PlayingWithFire Natsu]] learns that Lucy has been kidnapped, he captures a mook and drags him across a mountain trail. While dragging the guy, he orders him to reveal where Lucy is being held. When the mook won't answer, Natsu sets him on fire, then calmly declares that if he doesn't answer, the flames won't go out until he's ash.
** Black Mage Zeref needs only to flash a DeathGlare at somebody and announce they've angered him to have everyone on the floor shitting themselves.
* In ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}'', Yume seems rather calm when she [[CurbStompBattle beats up]] two Disciplinary Squad members effortlessly. Miya, the landlady of Maison Izumo, also seems rather calm as she trains Musubi and Tsukiumi in her backyard.
* In ''LightNovel/DemonKingDaimao'', while Sai Akuto is capable of UnstoppableRage, in some of his fights, he will [[LampshadeHanging comment on]] how calm he is despite a ton of power flowing through him at the time. Some of the other characters accuse him of this as a sign of him becoming the [[BigBad Demon Lord]].
* In ''Manga/InuXBokuSS'', Soushi does this in episode 3 when two young men are insulting Ririchiyo. After dousing them with his drink, he very calmly, very politely says, "Pardon me, it's just that, you've angered me."

to:

* This is said to be the highest state of mind for a fighter in ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam,'' a serene calm that cannot be broken by the strongest of maelstroms. It is through this rather than his trademark UnstoppableRage that Domon Kasshu finally manages to become truly worthy of his status.
** This is a state of mind only -- Domon becomes arguably more hotblooded when his Hyper Mode activates. It appears that his is a hot blood tempered controlled, but not stemmed, by calm. It also demonstrated the difference between excitement and flat out anger.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'': This is Mikazuki's default state when in battle. Not that Mikazuki emotes much anyway, but out of battle he's more relaxed and laid-back. When in battle with an enemy before him, every line in his face seems to be set in stone-cold fury, with a look in his eyes that clearly says anyone obstructing his path will die in short order. It's like watching a berserker, but with no trace of the screaming rage.
* Kira Yamato's "SEED Mode" in both ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED''. At first it was a sort of UnstoppableRage but even after it became this, it is still just as exciting.
* [[TheStoic Kakashi]] of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. After Zabuza completely disregards [[spoiler:Haku's sacrifice]] and attempts to [[spoiler:''cut right through him'' to get at his enemy]], Kakashi decides [[ItsPersonal it's now personal]].

* Though his signature reaction Whereas Rei II of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' was quiet but obedient to most serious situations is UnstoppableRage, Guts orders, even starting to show signs of a DefrostingIceQueen, [[spoiler:her [[CloningBlues successor]] Rei III harbors an unspoken resentment toward Gendo, and by the end, stops him from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' often starts carrying out with Tranquil Fury. When he [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice confronts]] the man who [[spoiler:tortured and mutilated Griffith for a year]], Guts [[http://www.mangareader.net/berserk/10/144 gives an expression Instrumentality on his terms, instead choosing to give that power to Shinji.

** Monkey D. Luffy is a master

*** Perhaps the best example of this is during
his signature SlasherSmile, just fight with [[spoiler:Rob Lucci]]. After fighting a mostly even battle (With the assistance of Gear Second), [[spoiler:Lucci brings out an attack that causes severe internal damage, even to show how dangerously enraged a Rubberman like Luffy. Then he hits him with it AGAIN. Luffy is inside.
**
near death, until Usopp gives him his own WorldOfCardboardSpeech, and he gets back up, glaring down Lucci whilst saying, in a completely calm tone, 'Until I beat you, [[{{Determinator}} I am not going down again.]]']]

Another time came in volume 17, memorable example is when [[spoiler:the World Noble Charloss]] shoots [[spoiler:Hachi]], leaving him bleeding out on the steps of a possessed slave auction. Luffy adopts a DeathGlare, but otherwise forgoes his usual RoaringRampageOfRevenge. Instead, he calmly walks up the stairs, dodging bullets with almost no visible movement (''without Gear Second''), and demonized horse is about to rape Farnese, who was Guts' hostage at punches [[spoiler:Charloss]] (''without even the time. This scene was [[BerserkButton particularly triggering for Guts]], as [[spoiler: it reminded him of the rape use of his lover Casca by Griffith]] rubber'') hard enough to send him across the building. This, all the while knowing that [[spoiler:striking a World Nobles is considered a declaration of war against the entire world but Luffy had zero fucks about that load of horseshit]].
** Whitebeard is known for [[UnstoppableRage going apeshit over anyone harming his]] "[[AFatherToHisMen sons]]". Killing one of them is a different story. In fact, it's this trope when [[spoiler:[[MagmaMan Akainu]] kills Portgas D. Ace,
and so after Whitebeard silently but brutally decapitating punishes him by using a MegatonPunch and sending him through a fault with his earthquake-powers. The only words he said were after Akainu ''[[OnlyAFleshWound burnt half his face off]]'': "I'm just getting started". Fittingly, the demon horse, he rather creepily and nonchalantly chastises Farnese for reminding him of his past, and goes onto saying in flat voice, "Thanks. Now I'm in a ''really'' bad mood. I've got until dawn to kill all of you." Cue to chapter was called ''Silent Rage'']]. Of course the next morning, where everything in Guts' radius save for Farnese is obliterated.Marines promptly shit themselves knowing what kind of force Whitebeard tends to be.

* Levi in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' genuinely showed so little emotion that the only way to tell if he is angry is through the shadowing of his eyes and his tone. For example, when speaking to [[spoiler:the Female Titan]], his voice is icy and it's clear he is ticked off that some of his soldiers were killed.

Due to the efforts of said henchmen, the gun jams, and the guy starts begging for mercy. Kenshin replies by screaming "If you value your life, PRAY TO YOUR BELOVED MONEY!!" before smashing the guy's face in.

Sort of. Kenshin does indeed lose his focus, but instead of forgetting about Chou's special attack, [[spoiler:Kenshin instead forgets that he doesn't want Chou's cervical vertebrae to part ways. He was only saved by the fact that the new sword was, unbeknownst to everyone, a sakabatou. Even then, the sheer force of the blow might have Darth Mauled him anyway(and would certainly have snapped his spine), if not for the BFS wrapped around his torso like a bandage]].
* ''Manga/SailorMoon'' examples:
** The anime has the protagonist in this mode as she confronts Queen Beryl in the final scene of season one [[spoiler:after the deaths of her fellow Senshi]]. Dub hate aside, Sailor Moon's voice actress Terri Hawkes evokes this powerfully:
--->''"[[Awesome/SailorMoon I hear you, Luna. I am not afraid anymore.]]"''
** The manga has a scene with the usually very emotive Sailor Venus: Queen Beryl was about to [[PrehensileHair strangle Sailor Moon with her hair]] when Venus suddenly became ''very'' calm, [[ThatMakesMeFeelAngry announced that now she was furious]], and then first cut Beryl's hair before ''cutting her belly open with a poisonous sword''.
* In ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'', StepfordSmiler Hakkai is very good at this, able to carry on polite conversations as he is engaged in battle. But his [[spoiler:past life]] Tenpou in the ''Gaiden'' manga raises this to a very creepy new level, politely saying "excuse me" before he
calmly gets in punches his face superior's lights out, and stuns said cousin [[spoiler:in the battle where he sacrifices his life]], engages in all manner of meaningless prattle that is unrelated to the battle at hand.
* ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo''
** [[TheStoic Jin]] is nearly the personification of this.
** Mugen is usually crazy energetic, especially when he's enraged. However, after being betrayed, blown up,
and left for dead by his equally-jerkish parents speechless childhood friends in Episode 13, he tracks them down and eerily limps towards them. when one of his old friends tries to attack, he immediately cuts him down in a few choice strokes, all with a single sentence, NO emotion.
* In ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}'', Yume seems rather calm when she [[CurbStompBattle beats up]] two Disciplinary Squad members effortlessly. Miya, the landlady of Maison Izumo, also seems rather calm as she trains Musubi and Tsukiumi
in his usual stoic manner:
-->'''Yuki''': Don't you ''ever'' talk about Miss Honda that way again, you ''lowlife''.
her backyard.
* In ''Manga/SoulEater'' Black*Star, a HotBlooded IdiotHero, is most dangerous when [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness he's not yelling at you]].



* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'': This is Mikazuki's default state when in battle. Not that Mikazuki emotes much anyway, but out of battle he's more relaxed and laid-back. When in battle with an enemy before him, every line in his face seems to be set in stone-cold fury, with a look in his eyes that clearly says anyone obstructing his path will die in short order. It's like watching a berserker, but with no trace of the screaming rage.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'': This is Mikazuki's default state In ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}},'' Shiki's occasional bouts of homicidal insanity come in a variety of flavors, depending on what triggers them. His usual version tends to be a "cold" fury, and he rarely if ever falls prey to a "hot" fury.
** There's a convenient scale on Arcueid's path: [[spoiler:Killing Arcueid? Definitely heated fury. Killing Nero? Middle-ground. Killing Roa? Pure calm]].
* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho''
** Sensui (the real one). It's a really good idea to shake his hand.
** Also, Kurama. He never loses his reserve, but you can always tell

* Briareos in ''Manga/{{Appleseed}}'' is quite good at this. Having a blank metal plate and five cameras in lieu of a face certainly helps.



* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** Monkey D. Luffy is a master of this, especially in the original Japanese. There are few times when Luffy will go in screaming and rip roaring mad, though to look at him you'd suppose otherwise. His most angry, serious look tends to be blank eyes.
*** Perhaps the best example of this is during his fight with [[spoiler:Rob Lucci]]. After fighting a mostly even battle (With the assistance of Gear Second), [[spoiler:Lucci brings out an attack that causes severe internal damage, even to a Rubberman like Luffy. Then he hits him with it AGAIN. Luffy is near death, until Usopp gives him his own WorldOfCardboardSpeech, and he gets back up, glaring down Lucci whilst saying, in a completely calm tone, 'Until I beat you, [[{{Determinator}} I am not going down again.]]']]
*** Another memorable example is when [[spoiler:the World Noble Charloss]] shoots [[spoiler:Hachi]], leaving him bleeding out on the steps of a slave auction. Luffy adopts a DeathGlare, but otherwise forgoes his usual RoaringRampageOfRevenge. Instead, he calmly walks up the stairs, dodging bullets with almost no visible movement (''without Gear Second''), and punches [[spoiler:Charloss]] (''without even the use of his rubber'') hard enough to send him across the building. This, all the while knowing that [[spoiler:striking a World Nobles is considered a declaration of war against the entire world but Luffy had zero fucks about that load of horseshit]].
** Whitebeard is known for [[UnstoppableRage going apeshit over anyone harming his]] "[[AFatherToHisMen sons]]". Killing one of them is a different story. In fact, it's this trope when [[spoiler:[[MagmaMan Akainu]] kills Portgas D. Ace, and Whitebeard silently but brutally punishes him by using a MegatonPunch and sending him through a fault with his earthquake-powers. The only words he said were after Akainu ''[[OnlyAFleshWound burnt half his face off]]'': "I'm just getting started". Fittingly, the chapter was called ''Silent Rage'']]. Of course the Marines promptly shit themselves knowing what kind of force Whitebeard tends to be.



** Kyouraku is usually the [[BrilliantButLazy most laid-back Captain in Soul Society]], preferring to drink and party his days and nights away. However, when Wonderweiss stabs his best friend [[IllBoy Ukitake]] straight through the chest, Kyouraku's whole demeanor turns murderous and he doesn't waste a second in trying to [[WouldHurtAChild kill the young Arrancar]].
