* Also subverted in ''Film/TheDarkKnight:'' The Joker does something like an unflinching walk out of the hospital, then stops as the explosion peters out. He then stands there fiddling with the detonator until the ''rest'' of the bombs go off, visibly startling him, and he hightails it out of there (all of which, it should be noted, were [[ThrowItIn adlibbed by Ledger]] after a special effects failure).

* While nothing explodes, Kenshiro of ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' has the most overexaggerated example of the UnflinchingWalk ever. He walks through a '''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome skyscraper that falls on his head]]''' without even seeming to notice it. And in a filler episode, Kenshiro blows up a tank with his bare fists and walks away from the explosion calmly.

* Lelouch gets one in ''Anime/CodeGeass R2'' episode 20 when, after all the horrible things that have happened to him and his loved ones, he finally starts acting like the demon everyone seems to think he is and turns what most people would consider {{Wangst}} into a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

* In ''Film/JurassicWorld'', a big CrowningMomentOfAwesome goes to ACU Trooper Miller, who essentially flips off the ''I. rex'' by standing his ground and firing his shotgun repeatedly at it. [[spoiler: He got eaten]], but by doing so, the last three soldiers -- one of them severely injured -- survived the attack and escaped ''I. rex'' pursuit, all thanks to his badassery. And to top it off, he's not just holding his ground; he's calmly striding ''towards'' the damn thing as it's charging right at him.

* In [[http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/ironman/large_tv.html the trailers]] to the film ''Film/IronMan1'' (retained in the film itself). ComicBook/IronMan dodges a tank shell and then fires a tiny, wrist-mounted rocket at the tank. He doesn't even wait for the rocket to explode before turning around to begin his UnflinchingWalk. Combine that imagery with the opening riff of the Black Sabbath song of the same name and you have [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome the ultimate in superhero badassery]]. The same trailer also shows an "Unflinching Stand" when Stark casually addresses a crowd with his back to the oncoming shockwave of a cluster bomb explosion.

* Creator/WarrenEllis loves this trope (see {{Thunderbolts}}) and loves subverting it (see ComicBook/{{Nextwave}}).

* Arguably invoked for any orchestra playing Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture. About half of rehearsals on it are actually learning the piece, and the other half is learning to ignore the cannon shots in the end. It takes quite a bit of time to learn to ignore.

* Played with in the opening credits of comedy show The Last Leg. Adam Hills and Alex Brooker pull off an amazing one as they walk away from an explosion, but Josh Widecombe flinches massively and looks around.

* ''Series/TheATeam'' has a truly epic one in the season two episode 'Deadly Maneuvers', where the explosion is timed to the flick of Hannibal placidly lighting his cigar.
