* Lunge from ''Manga/{{Monster}}'' is laser-focused on catching Dr. Tenma at all costs--he subsequently has no time for comedy. He does lighten up a bit at the end though.


A character with No Sense of Humor is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin incapable of enjoying jokes, comedy, or humor]] of any sort. Maybe the character is TheStoic [[TheSpock turned]] UpToEleven, or an otherworldly being with no notion of comedy, or the victim of a traumatizing accident -- whatever it is, this person is unwilling (or ''unable'') to respond to humor, [[CannotTellAJoke tell jokes]], or even recognize when something is funny at all.

* ComicBook/XMen: Professor X and Magneto are frequently flanderized as no-nonsense extremists. James Macavoy's performance is the first attempt to move away from this, although one might simply assume that as he gets older, he will get more serious. Also, Ian Mc Kellen gave Magneto a deadpan, cynical sense of humor which was expanded on by Michael Fassbender.

* Ultra Magnus in ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' takes most of the comic to start making jokes, and even then, they rarely go past being a DeadpanSnarker. A minor plot point in the Annual is that the mechanisms Magnus uses to smile have gone without use in ''so long'' that they've started to rust in place.

* ''VideoGame/TheSims''''VideoGame/TheSims'':


** Another artificial intelligence, SAM, in ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'', also struggles with humor, mostly limited to telling very stale jokes that it looked up on the Extranet somewhere ("Why don't Thresher Maws eat clowns? Because they taste funny."). Its creator ordered it to "work on them". SAM does a bit better with sarcastic humor, though whether its doing that on purpose or just making deadpan comments that sound funny is unclear.

SAM does a bit better with sarcastic humor, though whether its doing that on purpose or just making deadpan comments that sound funny is unclear. At one point, SAM's sense of humor (or lack thereof) is blamed at SAM's creator being another example.

Added DiffLines:

** Invoked in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'' when Terry [[IShallTauntYou mocks and ridicules the Joker]] to put him off balance:
--->'''Terry!Batman:''' Get a clue, clowny! [Bruce]'s got no sense of humor! He wouldn't know a good joke if it bit him in the cape. [[BoringInsult Not that you ever]] ''[[BoringInsult had]]'' [[BoringInsult a good joke]]....


** And in ''The Sims 4'', as of the ''Get Famous'' expansion, famous Sims have a chance of getting the game quirk, A Serious Actor, after performing a dramatic gig. Any funny or mischievous actions performed on Sims with this quirk will fail and cause them to become angry.

** He was well-known for having the sense of humor of an underripe potato. They used to use him as a sort of barometer for the quality of their ideas; if he liked it, they were off the mark. Selzer was, in fact, the specific genesis of the cartoon "WesternAnimation/BullyForBugs", when he barged into a brainstorming session and declared, sans all provocation, that bullfights weren't funny, and there were to be no cartoons about them. They made the cartoon anyway, the argument being that Selzer had, in Creator/ChuckJones' words, "never been right about anything yet."

Selzer's edict that "camels aren't funny" inspired Friz Freleng to disprove him by making "Sahara Hare". And although he loudly (and indelicately) declared that there was nothing funny about a skunk who spoke French, Selzer proudly accepted the Academy Award for Animated Short Film in 1949 for "For Scent-imental Reasons", a Pepé Le Pew cartoon.

* Kam Fong in ''Literature/{{jPod}}'' is mentally incapable of understanding humour due to being mildly autistic.
