* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}},'' perpetually happy [[HippieTeacher Mr. O'Neill]] gets at least one moment of this: in "[[TheMovie Is It Fall Yet?]]" [[TroubledChild Link]] tells him off, saying that he either doesn't really care about helping people or just "sucks" at it. (It's the latter.) After Link storms out Mr. O'Neill reassures himself that Link didn't really mean that, then goes back to his work, only to make a loud sobbing noise a moment later.

** In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E1PrincessTwilightSparklePart1 Princess Twilight Sparkle, Part 1]]", Princess Celestia reveals to Twilight that while she put on a brave face for her subjects, to her, the Summer Sun Celebration was just a bitter reminder that she'd had to banish ''her own sister'' after her FaceHeelTurn. Since she's a SlaveToPR she has to put a smile on her face at every occasion, no matter how much she dislikes it, and "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E10ARoyalProblem A Royal Problem]]" shows she's gets exhausted from it.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': An entire TownWithADarkSecret spends most of the time smiling in a way that Pinkie Pie, being a smile expert, doesn't trust for a minute. They actually are genuinely friendly and even happy, in a way, but it's in no way worth it for what they've had to give up, nor is their happiness actually natural.[[spoiler: Starlight Glimmer made the townsponies give up their real Cutie Marks, claiming that it was the only way they could all be "equal" and experience true friendship. Any pony who thinks Cutie Marks are good is locked in a small room where a recording of Starlight's voice drones on and on about how bad it is to be unique until they say that they agree with her.]]
--> Pinkie Pie: I know smiles, and those smiles? They're just not right!

* [[PlayingWithATrope Played straight]] and [[ZigZaggingTrope zig-zagged]] with ''Kaeloo'', who is somewhere between Depressed and Unstable. [[OnceAnEpisode Time to time]], her bottled up emotions actually change her physically into a [[HulkingOut hulking monster]], the actions of whom seem [[AndIMustScream beyond her conscious control]]. The falsity of her "cheerful" nature is often highlighted when she pushes back signs of anger with a huge, obviously forced, painful-looking smile. This counts as a mixed-gender example due to the canonical confirmation of the character being a [[{{Hermaphrodite}} Sequential Hermaphrodite]].
