%%* In a case of AdaptationPersonalityChange, ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' sees its version of ComicBook/DoctorDoom as this trope instead of a LargeHam, never raising his voice even when being taunted or in battle, and being rather calm and collected.

-->'''Louie''': Johnny Tightlips, where'd they hit you?\\
'''Johnny''': [[TooDumbToLive I ain't telling you nothin']].\\
'''Louie''': But what do I tell the doctor?\\
'''Johnny''': Tell him to suck a lemon.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'':
** Boomhauer is the least-emotional of Hank's friends. [[https://i.imgur.com/9NDGJ.png It was a guideline for the animators]] to not draw Boomhauer laughing or even cracking a grin, and said guideline shows that he only gets as giddie as [[ThatMakesMeFeelAngry just saying]] that he finds something funny but without really emoting it.
** Dooley almost never shows any emotion and often points out the obvious in a flat tone.


* [[AdaptationPersonalityChange In stark contrast to]] [[LargeHam his usual portrayals]], the version of SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom seen in ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' is a much calmer, cooler, more collected person, not showing any emotion.

Added DiffLines:

* Owen Burnett from ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' never raises his monotone voice or loses his poker face, which is quite a feat given the fact that he works under [[BigBad Xanatos]] and regularly deals with the likes of Goliath and his clan.


* Tina from ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers''.

to:

* Tina from ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers''.''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' almost always speaks in the same dull monotone, no matter how emotional she gets.

Added DiffLines:

* Princess Bubblegum from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' becomes this when doing complex science.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** Prince Zuko tries to be this way as much as he can, [[TheComicallySerious but the situations he's often placed in]] (being partnered with his jolly uncle Iroh among other things) often defuse this greatly.
--->'''Sokka:''' Are you happy now?\\
'''Zuko:''' (''with a very deadpan face'') I'm never happy.
** [[EmotionlessGirl Mai]]. Even her NotSoStoic moment is stoic. In a moment of [[HeelFaceTurn uncharacteristic heroism]], she [[spoiler:proclaims that she loves Zuko more than she fears Azula.]] Expressionlessly.
** Mako in ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfKorra'' is stoic most of the time, although he does often get irritated and cracks a smile occasionally.
* [[AdaptationPersonalityChange In stark contrast to]] [[LargeHam his usual portrayals]], the version of SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom seen in ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' is a much calmer, cooler, more collected person, not showing any emotion.
* Tina from ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers''.
* Huey Freeman from ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' is this and a PerpetualFrowner, as besides tone of voice and the scowl on his face, he doesn't really express his emotions. However, when the situation calls, he has NotSoStoic moments.
%%** Laemilton is more of a complete psychopath. Huey Freeman is a perfect example however. %%could fix the problem, that'd be lovely.%%
* [[spoiler: Clarence]] "Larry" from ''WesternAnimation/{{Clarence}}''.
* The [[PlanetOfHats Neutral Planet]] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''. Their motto is "Live free or don't".
-->'''Neutral President:''' I have no strong feelings one way or the other.\\\
'''Neutral President:''' All I know is my gut says, maybe.
** With the Planet Express ship rocketing through the atmosphere about to smash into the Neutral Capital Neutropolis, a "Beige Alert" sounds.
-->'''Neutral President:''' If I don't survive, tell my wife, hello.
* ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'': Six through and through. He smiles all of three or four times throughout the entire series, and it's only a tiny deviation from his normal expression.
* According to Grunkle Stan of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', his father Filbrick was one of these, described thusly; "Dad was a strict man. Tough as a cinderblock and not easily impressed." [[spoiler: In the flashback episode "A Tale Of Two Stans", Filbrick proves to be NotSoStoic when he finds out that Stan's usual carelessness cost his genius brother his admission to a first-rate college where his brains could have him, and by extension, the rest of the Pines family rich.]]
* Quack Quack from ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' rarely ever shows any emotion, usually having a blank expression on his face (this includes situations such as Kaeloo almost dying).
* [[{{Goth}} Lucy]] (all the time) and [[ChildProdigy Lisa]] (most of the time) from ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse''.
* In ''[[WesternAnimation/MenInBlack Men In Black: The Series]]'', K was made to be this, while he is almost similar to his movie counterpart, his animated version takes it UpToEleven.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** [[GentleGiant Big Macintosh]] is this combined with TheQuietOne. [[CatchPhrase Famously]], on the few occasions that he does speak, it's usually a flat "Eeyup" or "Nnope" ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0i2ErVWYFcE even when attempting to cheer]]). Whenever he gets emotional enough to speak in complete sentences, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness you know something's up]].
** Gummy the baby alligator is completely defined by his lack of ability to experience any emotion (or even awareness of his surroundings) whatsoever. This is [[{{Foil}} in]] [[TheComicallySerious stark]] [[TheStraightMan contrast]] to his owner, [[GenkiGirl Pinkie]] [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Pie]], who is inexplicably convinced otherwise.
** Pinkie's sister, Maud, is an even more extreme example, bordering on being an EmotionlessGirl, though it's shown in her later appearances that while she doesn't ''show'' emotions, she still ''feels'' them.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb:'' Ferb and [[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb Perry the Platypus]] both qualify.
* Skips from ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow''.
* WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack, similar to Jin, is a swordsman who will give little more than a brief glance to all of the weird crap he sees.
* PlayedForLaughs with Johnny Tightlips from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', a gangster so obsessed with stoicism and keeping the secrets he's entrusted with that [[LawfulStupid he won't even give basic information that could save his life]]. For instance, after a shootout that Johnny was severely injured in:
-->'''Louie''': Johnny Tightlips, where'd they hit you?\\
'''Johnny''': [[TooDumbToLive I ain't telling you nothin']].\\
'''Louie''': But what do I tell the doctor?\\
'''Johnny''': Tell him to suck a lemon.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** Craig is like this, usually when he's flipping people off. Although he frowns and shouts at other people, sometimes. Or [[AntiHero smiles malevolently]] when he wants to beat someone.
** Mysterion tends to fit this trope since his demeanor is similar to Batman's. He only loses his stoicism when people don't take him seriously or when he is talking to the Coon. He only smiles and laughs once, when explaining why they haven't changed the name of Coon and Friends after kicking him out; because it pisses the Coon off.
** Not only does he briefly lose his stoicism, he briefly drops his [[GutturalGrowler Guttural Growling]] when he finds out that [[spoiler:his parents have attended the Cult of Cthulhu meetings]].
* Garnet from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', though she's been [[CharacterDevelopment growing steadily]] [[NotSoStoic less so]].
* Gene is the most serious of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Super 4}}'' heroes. However, he seems a happy guy when compared to other inhabitants of Technopolis.
* Antauri from ''WesternAnimation/SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo'' is very serious and reserved most of the time.
* Slade, Raven and Robin from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''.
* Leon of ''WesternAnimation/TitanMaximum'' is stoic to the core. Even when freezing to death, he doesn't so much as shiver. He does reach out a hand to stoic monkey Jesus, though.
* Soundwave from ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' series deserves a solid spot here. As one of Megatron's more useful allies, Soundwave has a respectable fanbase among the fans purely for how mysterious and awesome he can be.
* Brock Samson from ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', when he's not engulfed in a psychotic UnstoppableRage.
* Tino from ''WesternAnimation/TheWeekenders'' in the episode "Cry" after he was made fun of for crying. He even shows no reaction to getting hurt.
-->'''Carver:''' Uh, Tino? That guy just ran over your foot.\\
'''Tino:''' [[CreepyMonotone I know. It was quite painful.]]
* In a case of AdaptationPersonalityChange, ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' sees its version of ComicBook/DoctorDoom as this trope instead of a LargeHam, never raising his voice even when being taunted or in battle, and being rather calm and collected.
