* Heather in ''VideoGame/SilentHill3'' doesn't start off this way, but she gradually adapts to the horrors she encounters throughout the story until she just shrugs at it like it was an everyday thing. She doesn't even flinch after finding out that [[spoiler: she's the reincarnation of Alessa, who was the daughter of the antagonist from the first game and said antagonist was also the mother of the current antagonist in this game.]]

* In ''Fanfic/DreamingOfSunshine'', Shikako describes the civilians of the Hidden Villages as this as they are able to unflappably live regular lives alongside ninja who could easily massacre them with their training.

Generally, they are in there so that the audience has [[AudienceSurrogate somebody to relate to]]. Commonly the main character, and may be a FishOutOfWater or/and an UnluckyEverydude. May or may not be [[ThisLoserIsYou played up as a loser]]. They've probably been dragged into this by a MagneticPlotDevice, and usually [[SeenItAll end up so blasé]] that everything they see only causes a DullSurprise at most. Heck, they might even rise to the ranks of GenreSavvy if they've experienced enough (see below). Expect them to become PalsWithJesus.

The ever so rare ''[[CharacterDevelopment evolved]]'' Unfazed Everyman is one who has become GenreSavvy and is one of the most formidable forces ever. They're not "bound" by the rules of being in any of the other groups and can follow or break the rules of genre to their benefit. In many ways, this is ''better'' than just being a BadassNormal (unless you are in a CrapsackWorld where knowing the rules doesn't mean you can change anything.)



* David Wong and John Cheese from ''Literature/JohnDiesAtTheEnd'' are Unfazed Everymen who [[spoiler: come into contact with all kinds of weird shit because of the soy sauce and]] eventually become unaffected and GenreSavvy.

* John Crichton in ''Series/{{Farscape}}'', initially, though after a few years of being the universe's punching bag, he becomes BadassNormal on the grounds that whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger. He may qualify as an evolved Unfazed Everyman after [[spoiler:the Ancients unlock the wormhole knowledge in his brain. Though not Genre Savviness, wormhole technology is apparently the most powerful tool available to the the major characters.]] By the end of the miniseries, he creates [[spoiler:an exponentially expanding wormhole capable of destroying the entire Universe.]]

* ''Webcomic/{{Whither}}'' has Alex, a GenreSavvy amateur OccultDetective who doesn't bat an eye at the weird. He does, however, take pictures.

** In the ComicBook/UltimateMarvel universe though, Jarvis is a bitchy CampGay version of his Earth 616-counterpart.

*Dr. Dillingham, the protagonist of Creator/PiersAnthony's Prostho Plus, is a typical human dentist until he is abducted by a passing alien with a severe cavity. Despite being confronted with (and treating) hundreds or even thousands of aliens of absurd composition, his extreme unfazedness allows him to rise to become the Dean of the Galactic University of Dentistry.



** Clara is believably weirded out by her initial meetings with the Doctor, especially when she learns the truth about the TARDIS - all the more that the ship is shown and explained to her in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9lOmJMOT_0 a]] no-time-to-explain rush - but afterward, she's surprisingly nonchalant about the Doctor being an alien adventurer. Eleventh expresses a degree of surprise over her being "Okay with that.", sitting in a café and sipping a shake, as if she just hadn't made a weird acquaintance. In later series, Clara's can-do attitude actually becomes a problem. The Doctor openly worries he's encouraged her to become ''too fearless'' [[RealityEnsues and this in turn tempts her]] to become a cheery adventure junkey in order to block out personal tragedies she's faced in her ordinary life. [[spoiler:After they're both forced to part ways, Clara takes the trope to its logical conclusion, becoming an adventurer in her very own TARDIS, with her very own companion.]]

* Joel and Joel, Mike and Jonah from ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''.''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''. Escape attempts aside, they're all weirdly accepting of being the subjects of mad scientists' experiments, the bizarre antics of their robot friends, and the colorful movie character who keep dropping in.

* Over time, the citizens of [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Ponyville]] acquire this trait. Magical HatePlague causes you to go nuts and attack someone? Meh, it had been a slow day anyway.
