* Janine Melnitz from ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}''. She is surrounded by men who hunt ghosts, half of whom are mad scientists. She even has a ghost in a cage close to where she works that the busters keep as a "pet". Not once has she ever batted an eye at any of this.
** Winston Zeddmore was this in the first film, casually commenting "As long as there's a steady paycheck in it, I'll believe anything you say."
* Dean from ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant''.

* Mark from ''WesternAnimation/UglyAmericans'' could probably out-Unfaze Everyman Arthur Dent. In the first episode, he's already sharing an apartment with a zombie, and dating a succubus who is also his boss. He works at New York's Department of Integration, where he helps immigrants adapt to American society, and monsters adapt to human society. It's basically a FantasyKitchenSink, with vampires, demons, wizards, and robots, but also weirder stuff like landwhales and manbirds.

* In all of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', there is only one citizen who is unaffected by the chaos. One pillar of emotional strength who remains stoic in the face of danger. One person who lets none of the monsters get her down. That person is…Soos' grandmother. In the episode "Soos and the Real Girl", we find that she'd been following Soos' date, even when an {{Yandere}} AI was running amuck. When Weirdmageddon rolls around and turns her into an easy chair, she just tells Soos he can go out and help his friends, then reclines to take a nap.

* In ''Manga/InuYasha'', Kagome's mother, brother, and grandfather are totally unsurprised when they learn the well in their shrine is a time portal to the 16th century, as well as learning that supernatural demons exist. They also don't seem to be concerned about Kagome skipping school to go to a place where she nearly gets killed on a regular basis.

* The first of Creator/JohnBrunner's ''The Traveller in Black'' stories has a 20th-century Londoner called Bernard Brown find himself, for some reason which is never fully explained, trapped in the stories' setting of a far-distant past where magic still works. He makes his way to the nearest city where he gets treated as a god. [[spoiler: He manages to defeat the ''real'' god of a rival city by using the kind of calm and logical approach which the people of his adopted city prize most highly.]]
** It's fairly strongly implied, though never stated explicitly, that the Traveller brings Bernard to the city so that he will do precisely that,[[spoiler: thereby sating a sudden mad desire on behalf of the people of the city to have a god -- any god -- and returning them to their normal level-headed ways]]. This unexpected change in the city's collective behavior can be interpreted as a move made by the forces of Chaos, but that requires reading between the lines.
*** It's the explicit granting of a wish to teach a lesson. It's the Traveler's way of dealing with bad situations by being a literal genie to those who ask him for favors.

* This seems to be the mindset of everyone that lives in [[Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale Night Vale]]. Even [[ScienceHero Carlos]] eventually got used to the town's weirdness, as shown in "Lazy Day", where he takes advantage of everyone and everything (including body organs and ''gravity itself'') lazying off by doing various household chores (including cleaning out his gutters while gravity was gone).
